Carrie Carrie Quite Contrary

'Cause the next time that he cheats
Oh, you know it won't be on me
--Carrie Underwood

"Hey, do you have that Obamacare?"

Carrie Underwood turned a few heads when she asked co-host Brad Paisley that question at the CMA awards last week. The duo then fired up a laptop and sang "Obamacare by Morning" while they waited for healthcare.gov to load.


Camera shots into the crowd showed some surprised faces and a few not-too-happy.

As the duo delivered their final and clinching lines, "Obamacare by morning. Over SIX people served," my dominant thought was wow...newfound respect for C&W.

This type of thing enrages liberals and almost certainly has them scurrying to dig up dirt on Underwood et al. Why? Because the reflexive response of statists to criticism about Big Government programs is to disparage the critics. Rather than debating the substance of competing ideas, this group aims to make it personal.

Therefore, were I Carrie Underwood, I'd be bracing for some retaliation.

Meanwhile, she can count at least one new fan.

The correct diagnosis for America’s healthcare woes is socialism and interventionism. The right medicine is a total separation of healthcare and the state. The sooner we take the medicine, the sooner the body politic will recover.

Honestly, Matt, this liberal doesn't have any idea what happened, nor does she care.

There's nothing new or shocking about country singers making comments that conservatives love.

We liberals don't walk and talk in unison, nor do we have clandestine meetings to plan retaliation. I'm sure people will fire back at her. Then her supporters will fire back again. That's how the train wreck of celebrity culture works, and why millions keep tuning in.

But hey, if it helps her sell more records, more power to her, I suppose.

Just clicked on the link - it's from a Minnesota Republican site. I'm sure they love the publicity too.

Reconsidered this. If you like it, more power to you. It's just not worth the argument to me. Peace, bro.
