Skip to comments.ObamaCare ad reveals infantile assumptions
Posted on 12/21/2013 12:41:09 PM PST by Innovative
Pajama Boys place in Internet infamy was secured as soon as the insufferable man-child was tweeted out by Organizing for America.
The vision of the Obama Democrats, distilled to its essence, is of a direct relationship between the state and the individual without the mediating institutions of family, church and community that are an inherent check on government power.
Alexis de Tocqueville wrote long ago of the infantilizing tendency of all-encompassing government. It would be like the authority of a parent, he wrote in a famous passage, if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks, on the contrary, to keep them in perpetual childhood. If you wanted to illustrate what Tocqueville was getting at in one meme, Pajama Boy would be good way to do it.

Does this make anyone else nauseous? That is my reaction, every time I look at it.
Is that second one for real? Are they doubling-down?
The seconds one is real also. It’s in the article and it links to twitter.
Yes, it does. I don’t find amusing in any way. It’s too close to reality in too many people in our nanny-state country to be amusing.
Yes it’s noxious, but not nearly as intrusive as those “I’m covered” adverts running on local tv every 10 minutes.
Those are driving me nuts.
What happened to the one of the dancing homos in colored shorts? Now THAT one was sickening.
PJ boy is just infuriating.
At Obamacare (link above):
“This holiday season, millions of Americans have a chance to get quality, affordable health insurancemany for the first time. If you have family members who are uninsured, you can play a big part in helping them find coverage that works for them. It might not always seem like it, but your family listens to you. So have the talk. “
Yes, instead of celebrating Christmas, let’s talk about Obamacare...
I shouldn't be shocked, but I am.
I’m a guy. Can live in a tent in the woods kind of guy.
Can someone explain what the ding dong pajamas are?
Might have figured it out. Are they like long johns?
Does pj boy have a trap door in what he is wearing?
Maybe someday he may get a real job like asking if you want fries with that at a fast food drive through.
Best explanation I have heard so far of the Obama objective. Holy Mother the State.
I thought Michelle’s statement was bizarre...”make it a Christmas treat” to talk about Obamacare with your family. WHAT? And also the imagery of how you might need it is you “slip in a club” or “cut your finger when cooking for the first time”. (What scripted little incidents she mentioned)
Wow - if I slipped in a club I’d just get up hoping no one noticed and if I cut my finger I put a band aid on it.
And what’s with the pajamas and hot chocolate? That’s for 3 year olds. They are fricking NUTS!
Life of Julia cartoon used to spoof ObamaCare
The sad part is that “Life of Julia” stuff really works.
It helped re-elect Obama in 2012 with women providing a large majority.
But look at the “new” one — it is a spoof of the original regarding Obamacare.
It’s well done.
I hope it gets some distribution in the MSM.
My fervent hope is that Obamacare is a Death Star for Democrats in Nov 2014.
“My fervent hope is that Obamacare is a Death Star for Democrats in Nov 2014.”
Mine too, but I also hope Republicans don’t screw up this opportunity.
Really? I don’t have cable so I guess I’m missing out.
It makes me laugh my head off. It is the most ridiculous thing in politics since bambi’s greek columns.
neoteny--juvenilization ...thanks for the new word.
Would really like to knock that smug look off his face.
The people who did the advert think this the way America is. They tried, very poorly I might add, to make it a Normal Rockwell version.
All that dancing boy wants for Christmas is a limo ride to Man’s World with Uncle Barry. How sad that this is what Democrat manhood has come to. This wimp probably disgusts even flaming homosexuals.
The Democrats’ whole program for years has been to foster dependency and destroy adult responsibility. ObamaCare specifically extends childhood to 26 — the age through which baby can stay on Mom or Dad’s insurance (preferably while unemployed and living in the basement in their jammies).
Single women. Married women (at least white married women) voted for the R. Single women are more likely to be married to Uncle Sam.
They will. Boehner’s and Mcconnell’s antics are the straws in wind. And Ryan.
Any man, woman or 18 year old who WANTS TO BE TAKEN CARE OF, voted for Obama. As for my house we will serve the Lord........Never the Government in exchange for cradle to grave care. They should go live in a Socialist or Communist country. Maybe then they would be happy.
A lot of single women will relate to such a boy as the Onesie guy. He’s not going to “hit on them” or try to be anything other than a little sister to them. He won’t try to kiss them or ask their fathers if he can date them. The penultimate, non threatening, quasi homosexual not a man but not a woman either. Perfect for a modern democrat woman who wants to be a lesbian but needs a “man” to smack around and control.
“Does this make anyone else nauseous? That is my reaction, every time I look at it.”
Yep. And I’m not kidding.
The regime will capture the Klinefelter syndrome voters.
Flannel shirt & flannel pants worn while sleeping. For children, they’re seen together because the kid can’t keep them fully on otherwise; that’s what the idiot manchild is wearing.
He looks like Alan Greenspan before his swing band days
The State is Mother. The State is Father.
But he’ll still have his Barbie collection.
