Protect the poor, disenfranchied Heath Insurance executives!

Hilarious stuff - and if you can't watch videos with your Internet connection, I'll explain why!

This video is a Public Service Announcement spoof in which Will Ferrell and various stars from TV make a heartfelt claim to protect the poor executives of the health insurance industry who'll be hit hardest by so-called 'Obamacare.'

Blink and you'll miss 'em, but in this video you'll see Olivia Wilde from 'House', Masi Oka from 'Heroes' and Donald Faison from 'Scrubs.'

Yes, we're aware it's all politically-slanted stuff from Democratic-loving non-profit, but it's still pretty fun stuff! It's nice to see Will Ferrel taking time out from absolutely sucking in his latest movies in order to do something that's genuinely funny.

And if you want to catch up with the antics of the other stars, they're appearing on your Direct TV Service this fall! The new season of 'House' started last week, while a Direct TV subscription gives you access to Comedy Central, which seems to play nothing but interminable repeats of Scrubs (featuring good old Donald Faison.)

For weeks now, Mummy Militant and I have been discussing the idea of scrapping our Direct TV Packages and trying to make do without TV, but now the winter season of great shows have started appearing, our resistance is weakening!

And as far as Mini Militant's concerned, Direct TV Deals him into all the Dora the Explorer he can watch, so he's lobbying to keep it around! Watch this space - we'll let you know who's victorious.

I love Hollywood. The television shows they bring us often let us escape for hours at a time into fantasy worlds.

This video is no exception. They claim that support for Obamacare is at 80%. Unfortunately, this has no bearing in reality. The actual number, according to Rasmussen Reports, is 43% in favor, 56% opposed.

To me, the suprising thing is that 43% of people are still in favor of letting the government manage their health, seeing as how the government can't even manage to put the bill online.

Hi Professor!

I thought I needed to mention it was organized by for that reason!

I'm currently writing an article about health care reform and, thanks to you, I got the 56% figure right!

BTW, if you get a chance, pop onto Hulu and watch Thursday night's Jay Leno Show. Segments 2, 3, and 4 are an interview with Rush Limbaugh, which was actually kinda interesting.
