I Know A Dead Parrot When I See One The Obama administration’s blissful altering of reality would be comedic if it weren’t so destructive.

Hey, who remembers Baghdad Bob, Saddam Husseins’s Information Minister during the Iraqi war? His blatantly-in-denial reports on the undeniably successful American invasion into his country provided comic relief throughout the war. Today, if you consider the Obama administration’s wild tales of fantasy about Obamacare, Baghdad Bob almost seems quaint by comparison. But in either case, unintentional humor can be just as funny as a well-rehearsed comedy sketch.

More recently, the news that the British comedy group Monty Python were reuniting would seem to have come at an opportune time. Two of their most popular sketches keep coming to mind whenever I read any news about the Obamacare fiasco. The “Argument Clinic” and the “Parrot Sketch” make for funny illustrations of what an absurd failure government mandated compulsory health care is turning into. I know it will never happen, but Monty Python could rework both of those sketches into hilarious versions of our current health care situation.

The Obamacare website doesn’t work.

Yes it does.

It doesn’t! Nobody can log in.

Yes they can.

They can’t. It’s a complete mess.

No it’s not.

It is!

No it’s not.

Look, I’m tired of this bureaucratic runaround.

No you’re not.


And so on. Or consider this:

My health insurance just got cancelled.

It’s just being re-calibrated.

And I can’t keep my old doctor.

Just a minor adjustment in your plan.

I can’t even access the website.

That’s a temporary glitch in the system. It’s fixed now.

My new policy options are limited, and the whole thing is too expensive.

That’s just Republican propaganda. Once you’re enrolled, everything will be fine.


The Obama administration’s blissful altering of reality would be comedic if it weren’t so destructive. Even so, sometimes you just gotta laugh.
