Pajama Boy, An Insufferable Man-Child
politico.com ^ | 12/18/13 | Rich Lowry

Posted on 12/19/2013 5:38:18 AM PST by cotton1706

ajama Boy’s place in Internet infamy was secured as soon as the insufferable man-child was tweeted out by Organizing for America.

He is the face of a web ad that is the latest effort by the Obama team to leverage the holidays for conversation about Obamacare. “Wear pajamas,” the ad reads. “Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting health insurance. #GetTalking.”

And, sure enough, Pajama Boy is wearing pajamas—a zip-up onesie in classic Lamar Alexander plaid—and drinking hot chocolate. He is in his twenties, sporting hipster glasses he could have bought at Warby Parker and an expression of self-satisfied ironic amusement.

Pajama Boy is about as threatening as Michael Cera and so nerdy he could guest-host on an unwatched MSNBC show. He is probably reading The Bell Jar and looking forward to a hearty Christmas meal of stuffed tofurkey. If he has anything to say about it, Obamacare enrollments will spike in the next few weeks in Williamsburg and Ann Arbor.

Perhaps the goal of OFA was to create a readily mockable image to draw attention to its message, in which case Pajama Boy was a brilliantly successful troll. The right immediately Photoshopped him into the Mandela funeral selfie and emblazoned his photo with derisive lines like, “Hey girl, I live with my parents,” and, “How did you know I went to Oberlin?”

But it’s hard not to see Pajama Boy as an expression of the Obama vision, just like his forbear Julia, the Internet cartoon from the 2012 campaign. Pajama Boy is Julia’s little brother. She progressed through life without any significant family or community connections. He is the picture of perpetual adolescence. Neither is a symbol of self-reliant, responsible adulthood.

A decent parent would tell pajama boy "Hey! Take off the damn pajamas, put down the hot chocolate and go chop some wood for the fire! You won't be getting a free ride here, beatnik!"

Honestly, could anyone be more out of touch with America than this Obama cult? A & E will find out that there are millions of Americans who are on the side of Phil Robertson and have absolutely nothing in common with the Pajama Boy Left.

Pajama Boy probably has a trophy case full of medals, trophies and citations for being a “Good Sport Particpant.” (aka=Loser)

I read that chopping wood produces more testosterone in the body than lifting weights, so you are right on the money here. Little Elvis Costello needs to quit snuggling in his PJs with a self-satisfied smirk plastered on his face.

I can't tell what is most enraging about that picture. Is it:

1. The aforementioned smirk
2. The hipster glasses
3. The cross-legged sitting position
4. The way he holds his cup o' cocoa

“enraging”?

No ... a punk like that is incapable of enraging me. It just doesn’t rise to that level. It can’t.

It’s simply contemptible.

This ad is so mockable I’m wondering if the Obamatons who put it out had any inkling of the sheer imbecility of it. Or, what is more disturbing, are there really millions of young males or females who would identify with this ad? Can’t even the densest Obamaniac realize what fools this makes them look like? My conclusion is there must be millions of these immature nitwits running around thinking they make a difference or contribute something worthwhile to their country.

“I read that chopping wood produces more testosterone in the body than lifting weights, so you are right on the money here.”

Just ask yourself what Captain John Smith or William Bradford would say to pajama boy. They’d say what they said to the aristocrats in all their finery: “hey, get out in the fields like everybody else! If you will not work, you shall not eat!”

And they forded the rivers and crossed the mountains and forged a nation WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE!!

I'll cut him a little slack for wearing the loose flannel pajamas. You wouldn't want anything very tight for awhile after having your genitals removed.

I suspect that your conclusion is correct. I also would bet that that clown in the onesie could not pass my eighth grade final in history. If you told me that he holds a masters degree in history I would still make the bet.

Pajama Boy is Julia’s little brother.

We need to remember that a LOT of women identified with Julia - married to the state, totally taken care of from cradle to grave. Women are wired to desire this, but it's supposed to come in the context of a father or husband.

But, of course, having a man around has a lot of downside, too. Better to marry the government and not have to put up with a stinkin' man around.

The worst part of that image (from a very long list of possible choices) to me is that the twerp is drinking hot chocolate from a teacup. For the love of all that is good, get a mug, ya weenie!!

Contempt is a good word, and I feel that as well. It is not necessarily the punk himself that is enraging. Well, the look on his face makes my hands ball into fists, but that's a reflex action.

I think I am angered more by the idea that this is how our central planners view Americans: smarmy, metro toddlers who need a binky, hot chocolate, and a piece of crap health plan.

A new poll came out this week that says people in Louisiana support “gay rights” by a 93 percent margin. There are a lot of liberals in the closet too; they don’t all march in the streets.

Ok what is the deal with the glasses?

They used to called ZPGs and were the cheapest frames on the market.

So now they are the fashion? Do kids these days have no sense of style?
