Doublin’ Down on Da VP

Today I’m here simply to follow up my previous post.  My fellow Americans, today marks a huge victory for those of us who want universal health care reform t-shirts.  We have fought long and hard for this day, and it wasn’t easy, but victory is finally ours.  That’s right, the Obama website announced that they will officially be printing and selling the “Health Reform is  BFD” t-shirts (technically giving away for free if you happen to donate $25 to Organizing for America).  So if you want to order yours, mosey on over to this website.  They’re also good for haters – they make great shop rags or paintball testing targets.

Indeed it is, Joey B

I, as the conveyer of all things important, must also include part of the item description to you:

There are things that are a big deal — birthdays, anniversaries, the NCAA Championship game. And then there are things that are a BFD, like delivering health insurance to 32 million Americans. We worked hard together to make health reform a reality, and now you can celebrate this historic victory with this shirt.

Again, for good measure, I’m including a video about Joe Biden, that suave son of a bitch, from The Onion.

Edit: If videos aren’t for you, read this story about Biden from The Onion as well.

Biddin’ on Biden

I’m going to get some hateful comments for even mentioning the health care reform act, but a young John Wayne once told me a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do, and I’m the kind of guy who listens to young John Wayne.

So this post doesn’t have anything to do with the health reform substantively, but the response.  I know.  I’m throwing you a change-up.  I think you can handle it.  Prepare yourself though.  I’m not even going to address the tea party response or general negative sentiment that dominates some’s opinion of the current administration (beyond that sentence).  Instead, I’m going to address the ol’ VP’s response.  In introducing President ‘Bama, Joey B. “accidentally” said into the hot mic, “This is a big f*cking deal” in an off the cuff aside to the President.  Don’t believe me? ROLL FILM.

You may have to turn it up a bit, but someone on youtube thoughtfully plastered it across the video at the appropriate time.

Anyway, the thing that I think is funny is that the Obama website is having a vote on which t-shirt should be the official commemorative health care reform t-shirt.  Of course it’s a huge trick to get you to donate money, but one of the choices is this:

Instead of brushing Biden under the rug for another gaffe, the Obama camp has literally turned it into a t-shirt.  I dig.

For good measure, here’s a video from The Onion about Biden.
