Skip to comments.Song Mocking Obamacare + Special Duck Dynasty Appearance = Best Country Music Awards Open Ever?
Posted on 11/06/2013 9:13:40 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe
Thats right, hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood had a special segment and even song mocking the failed health care rollout that featured the pair pretending to sign up for Obamacare and then crooning about the failure.
It all started while the pair was singing a new version of Why Cant We Be Friends that faked feuds between some of country musics biggest stars (including Kenny Rogers) and Paisley stopping abruptly to complain about back pain. Thats when Underwood suggested trying to sign up for Obamacare.
I started signing up last Thursday and Im almost done, she said with a fake smile. Lets go to the website and get you signed up.
That elicited laughs from the crowd as the pair went and grabbed a computer.
Whys it spinning? Paisley asked.
Oh, it does that, Underwood responded.
Whys it smokin? Paisley continued.
Umm, I dont know, Underwood said, looking concerned into the camera. Maybe we should restart it.
From there they broke out into a spoof of George Straights classic Amarillo by Morning, instead singing Obamacare by morning/ Whys this taking so long?/Im going to end up with hemorrhoids/If I sit here til dawn. It continued from there, even taking a shot at the reports that only six people were able to sign up the first day.

Gotta love it!
Thank you Brad and Carrie. Ridicule is a potent weapon.
The most deadly thing to the revolutionary socialist government is ridicule. Make no mistake,, this enrages the White House.
This is why I love the country music awards..did you hear everyone in the audience applaud and laugh..God Bless Nashville..you just know Obama’s minions are going to go after them both for making fun about their beloved messiah
that was awesome!
“The most deadly thing to the revolutionary socialist government is ridicule. Make no mistake,, this enrages the White House.”
I was thinking the same thing. not trying to be funny, but I think we’re less than five years away from that scene in “V”.....”not so funny now, is it, funnyman”.
How many in the audience that laughed that voted for him once?
ha ha ha.
Funny skits are going to stop the behemoth. s/
The first time I saw these two try to act was the last time I’ll ever see it. That was several years back.
And today’s “country” music sucks. I think they use the same background singers on every song.
That was pretty good, worked with audience
“Obamacare by morning. Over six people served”
I saw Taylor Swift in the front row but was not sure of her reaction as it was so short the camera pass by of her.
Obamacare by morning! ha
It was a little awkward in the beginning, seems Carrie was more into it than Brad Paisley. He did that nervous giggle but then caught on.
Mock & ridicule often...commies hate it!
I saw that. And the crowd cheering....
That they are even brave enough to challenge the media’s Current Truth says a lot for these people.
Brad is a lib who gave a private party showing at this very White House, it took guts to do this and break with his fellow lib artists. I’m thinking they both get audits every year for a decade..........
& not a huge country fan but love that George Strait won...
“Funny skits are going to stop the behemoth. s/”
They sure can...
Just ask Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and Sarah Palin about that.
My take was Swift was having a cow watching and hear her beloved Obama being milked for humor. At first I didn’t think she caught the joke and then it appeared she didn’t like it, but that is mostly a SWAG on my part. Most everyone else seemed to appreciate it.
Swift is talented but an immature dipshi%.
She’s like a future Sheryl Crow, talent but single forever because every guy bails.
I doubt Taylor Swift even knows what Obamacare is..she had that DUH look on her face..deer in a headlight
She is just 23, and spends almost all of her time touring. I’d cut her a break on that one.
She knows, she’s been cozy with the Kennedys. I’m sure she’s been groomed to the dem point of view, social justice and all that feel good crap.
Twitter went nuts with #obamacountrysongs, some were really clever and funny.
Yeah I saw those songs posted on twitter they were hilarious..of course the libs got pissed and told everyone to shit the f up lol..awe they just can’t take it when someone makes fun of their messiah yet they have no problem wishing death to conservatives
-— That they are even brave enough to challenge the medias Current Truth says a lot for these people ——
They have an audit coming. But better to fight now, while it’s still possible.
I know, they are such wimps who can dish it out but dang they sure can’t take it!
I came up with a few, I do like country music so I had fun with it :)
Wonder what the fall out will be, if any, for Brad and Carrie. I thought the whole thing was pretty benign.
Paisley will get his White House pass revoked.
And that makes me Happy, Happy, Happy
But it puts them in their place bigtime.
Thanks Tailgunner Joe.

Brad used to be a BIG Obama supporter. Wonder if that’s changed.
Swift is a talented girl. But she is, as my daughter calls her, a love-slut.
She may have been hanging out with a Kennedy, but I doubt very much if the relationship had any political angle to it at all. She was 22 and he was a sixth year junior in high school.
We are not talking JFK/RFK debates here.
This is not going to be a popular statement but put a pair of Mickey Mouse ears on her... three cute little whiskers on each side of her nose and a piece of cheese in front of her.
She slept with a kennedy... that is an std that will never heal.
Indeed—Satan cannot abide being mocked.
Her jaw had dropped. She looked furtively to the side, saw folks laughing and applauding and her jaw dropped further. It was brief, but unmistakable.
A few others I didn’t recognize were not amused.
That is what it looked like, like she was looking around thinking ‘What are they laughing about?”
“I saw Taylor Swift in the front row ...”
Is Taylor of political significance?
The Obamacare spoof aside, I thought the opening was mainly a huge indoor light show with cameras wiggling around and the performers running around on stage singing not-so-country songs, acting like they’re hot stuff.
But I enjoyed some of the performances. To me it’s all about the music.
Taylor Swift made a few music videos that I really like especially the first ones .
Small town settings in an America that doesnt look like here today at all, more like a small town 30 years ago.
Its seems lately her videos are more rock starry and not appealing to me.
She’s not quite country and not quite rock either.
RE :”Is Taylor of political significance?”
Lets hope not ever.
Darn, missed it! Will it be repeated?
No no no, I’m not talking about that little fling with the 18 year old Kennedy. I’m talking about teaming up with the old hag Ethel (or whatever her name is) to spread her wealth.
All fund raising and matching donations kind of thing.
I give the give credit, I know she is lost in the woods regarding relationships, but she has written every song on every ‘album’ she has put out - and, has not turned into a Miley whore, for public consumption. If my girls were still young, I’d rather they emulate Taylor than Miley.
Brad and Carrie are going to get their IRS audit notices before the end of the day.

I will agree with you on that. I was watching a show with my daughter a few years ago where Taylor was talking about a song she wrote for a high school talent show. I was kind of rolling my eyes.
She said she wanted to record it for an album but the producer didn’t like it. So she waited until her next album, when she had a little more control.
When she played it, I recognized it. And there are not too many “teeny bopper” songs this 50 year old would recognize.
It was a huge hit.
Did I mention it was for a HIGH SCHOOL Talent show? Yes, she might be a little distracted in life...but the girl has talent.
