LOL!! - Another BAD DAY For Republicans As President Obama Is NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY






I Love The Smell Of Republican Heads Exploding In The Morning.......It Smells Like........Victory!!...




President Obama is such a fail. First he wins a Nobel Peace Prize and now he’s been nominated for an Emmy for the interview he did with comedian Zach Galifianakis on his Web series “Between Two Ferns”. This is proof that the entire world hates Republicans. That web based Funny or Die clip has been nominated for an Emmy Award in the Outstanding Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program category. Really, Republicans deserve the credit for this Emmy nod (which is good since they can’t credit Obama for anything except blaming him for things they did), because if they hadn’t been fear-mongering about Obamacare in the first place, the President never would have had to take such extreme measures to get the word out.



But Republicans told Americans that Obama was going to kill their babies with death panels and the government was taking over their medical decisions. In contrast, to show you their idea of American freedom, Republicans have successfully fought to let your boss/faceless corporations with an agenda make your medical decisions. That’ll show Obama! So Obama did an interview with comedian Zach Galifianakis on his Web series “Between Two Ferns” and together, using satire and wit, they increased views to Healthcare.Gov by 40%. The President and Zach Galifianakis have some stiff Emmy competition, facing off against a Super Bowl halftime clip and a Parks and Rec mini episode. (Vice President Joe Biden was on Parks and Rec, by the way, and the show pays obvious homage to Hillary Clinton as a role model for female politicians). The Right wing will be beside themselves over this, after all, they went nuts over his mere appearance in the show, as they feel he should not be mentioning the law in public or something:



"...During Fox & Friends, Elizabeth Hasselbeck said, “Some would argue that it’s inappropriate for the president of the United States to be advertising a law, an insurance plan.” This was after co-host Brian Kilmeade stated it was inappropriate for the President to be sitting down for a fake interview that was really a comedy skit. This is really rich. Somehow, Hasselbeck feels that President Obama should not be saying anything positive about the current health care law or encouraging people to sign up for health insurance..."


Right wing media declared the Emmy nominated President “desperate”:

"...The Daily Caller and Washington Free Beacon, both conservative news hustlers, got columns up right away declaring how awful and agenda-driven the interview was. Laura Ingraham, Katie Pavlich and Martha MacCallum, all Fox News personalities, took to Twitter and made sure to advance the narrative of the day that this was a very, very bad thing that the President did..."


Oh, yes. Everything Obama touches is such a glitch fail. Why can’t he be more like former President Bush? Republicans sided with the Taliban when Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, so there’s really no telling how this Emmy nod about a show he did to help get the word out about affordable healthcare will impact them. Brace yourselves.

1. Don't forget, he won two Grammies, too.

 

The Grammy for Best Spoken Word for his reading of Dreams of My Father in 2005 and then The Grammy for Best Spken Word for his reading of The Audacity of Hope in 2008.

21. It's Galifianakis' IN-attention to detail that makes the Ferns work

It's not just Zach's dumb questions and absence of charisma -- it's his greasy hair, scruffy clothes, flushed complexion, slouching, wrinkled script (from which he has to read the president's name). There's no eye contact with either his guests or his camera angles, and he sulks when checkmated. Add the crap production values that were the hallmark of no-budget, pre-cable public access TV, garnish with the irony that the guests are from the top rather than the bottom of the ladder where public access TV guests traditionally came from, and Between Two Ferns can't help but be a living monument to unprofessional media.




Put another way, my sister once told me that Patrica "Hyacinth Bucket" Routledge of Keeping Up Appearances "really is a very good singer in real life." I said, "You wasted your breath telling me that -- you HAVE TO be a really good singer to sing as BADLY as she does as WELL as she does!"

20. Just a guy of the people

 

Repugs want a prez you can "sit down and have a beer with"

Then we get a GOP prez who is a smug frat-boy dumb bunny who does't want to sit down with any of you low-lifes.



Meanwhile..... Dem prez's win awards..... for being on hip shows.

My favorite part:

GALIFIANAKIS: "What's it like to be the last black President?"

OBAMA: "What's it like for this to be the last time you ever talk to a President?"
