What Were They Thinking?

Somebody at Organizing For America (aka Obama For America, OFA) thought that a twitter campaign featuring a be-speckled twenty something wearing plaid pajamas would be a good way to #GetTalking about the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).

Until the the “reality based” twitter community decided to counter the White House propaganda machine with their own version of #PajamaBoy

    They don’t seem to realize that many of the young people who are without health insurance are desperately looking for work and cannot find any because there aren’t enough jobs, are struggling with massive college debt, or are way underemployed.  They are not all sitting around in pajamas, drinking hot chocolate in their parents’ basement.

    They have no health insurance because they have no f*cking money to pay for it!

    Medicare For All.  Period.

    Get enrolled

    Who just comes up with this stuff?  What’s next, old people in diapers dancing with their walkers?  Disabled people doing synchronized wheelchair routines?  I shudder to think what they could come up with for people of color.
