New ObamaCare Propaganda via Andy Griffith!

Just in time for the election season, the Obama administration will be piping propaganda directly into grandma's house ― and you'll foot the bill! Reportedly, the "initial cost" will be about $1 million: $3.2 million:

Actor Andy Griffith has a new role: pitching President Barack Obama's health care law to seniors in a cable television ad paid for by Medicare.

The TV star - whose role as sheriff of Mayberry made him an enduring symbol of small-town American values - tells seniors that "good things are coming" under the health care overhaul...

Medicare says the national ad is not political, but part of its outreach to educate seniors about new benefits available next year. The ad is slated to run on channels seniors watch, such as the Weather Channel, CNN, Hallmark and Lifetime, at an initial cost of $700,000.

Here's the propaganda piece:

"We're gonna shove ObamaCare up your rear end, and you're gonna like it!"

Poor Andy looks tired. Why can't they just let an old guy enjoy his retirement?

Will you head on over to YouTube and give this one a thumbs down? If you leave a comment, choose your words carefully. My acerbic comment was apparently rejected by our benevolent betters at CMSHHSgov.

I just gave it the "thumbs down" and it looks like most of the others seeing it, did too.
Too bad Andy allowed himself to be used in this propaganda piece. I liked it better when he was good ole' Sheriff Andy Taylor in Mayberry.

Andy may have usually played good guys, but in real life he has been reliably far left of normal. Most entertainers lean left because they are so removed from reality.
