Lewis Black on Republican “Socialized Medicine!” Hysteria

Sometimes you just get too tired and burned out from lashing out at the bloodthirsty health insurance warlords. Here is just one example, one of millions, of their mercenary practices. (H/T to Bee for providing the link.)

Sometimes all you can do is laugh at the sick absurdity of it all. Come on, take a short break with Lewis Black.

Yeah, that was pretty good. Anyone who goes after McConnell gets extra points. The SOB lies early and often, and almost never gets called on anything. Since the news media usually let his BS pass, maybe it's up to comedians to take up the slack. Black got a good start on it.

Lewis Black should be the anchor on every newscast.

SW: McConnell definitely needs a good bitchslapping. I hope more comedians will start ridiculing these rightwing scare tactics.

Randal: He'd be an improvement over most of them.

Lewis Black makes me want to go around shouting at people. He has very funny anger.

Holte: Good description; he does have that effect. He's sort of like a less manic version of Sam Kinison (killed in a car accident in 1992), who screamed and cursed all through his entire skits.

I happened to see Peggy Noonan on Morning Joe when she was talking about how nobody talked about health care when she was a kid. It was pure Reagan "Morning in America" bullshit.

J: I liked Lewis Black's comeback to her "when I was a kid" nonsense. Noonan probably wrote that "Morning in America" bullshit, since she was a Reagan speechwriter.
