Hot on the heels of this controversial poster showing up in several different places around the US;
Comes this awesome action figure. Awesome not because it's supposed to be some sort of slag against the president and his OMG SOCIALIST COMMIE WAYS by trying to make sure everyone has health insurance (honestly Americans, you are the dumbest fucking group of people I've ever had the displeasure of being a part of. Nobody works harder to make sure we have less than you, especially the middle and lower class, whom, of course, would benefit the greatest from government backed healthcare.)
It's amazing to watch as a few hundred people at 'town hall meetings' who, it's come to light, are mostly just actors, props, vehicles of the right wing noise machine, literally getting paid MONEY to scream as loudly as possible to block any kind of reasonable discussion or debate over the healthcare bill. Will they succeed as they did against the Clinton healthcare bill? Probably. Sadly, they probably will. Our country is so, so, so stupid, and before anyone tells me to leave if I don't like it, I say send me a check or money order that will cover expenses for my passport and steer me in the direction of ANY country that rates higher than ours on the human rights list (there's about 60 of them) and I'll pack my shit and leave tonight. Canada, Switzerland, Jamaica, whatever. I'm cool. I don't care about being in the most consumer-right... or maybe it's just consumer-friendly country in the world. I'm tired of being a consumer. I'm tired of accruing debt I can't pay for shit I don't need. Stop buying it then, you say? Sure. I did. I have my tvs and my computer and the wedding I wanted and a car. I don't want to buy a house or a horse or anything else plastic or shiny - I want to save my money to travel, to experience life, to see the sights. But I digress.
I personally want this toy (lol, I know, I said I wasn't going to buy anything) because OBAMA is AWESOME and THE JOKER is AWESOME and whether or not the point of the toy is to bash Obama for daring to try this crazy-awful bill that nobody has actually read, instead opting to parrot whatever talking points Fox News or Drudge Report or the forwards they keep getting from Glenn Beck or their grandparents. No, I want the toy simply because it's a toy, it's Obama and the Joker all rolled into one little QB of awesome. You can find the toy here. It's limited in quantity, extremely limited... there's only 2000 of them which is probably about the real amount of people who LOVE our healthcare just as it is now.
