Hey Dems: ‘Grow a Pair’ With Balls Beer and Pass Healthcare
January 23, 2010
(ChattahBox)—The Democrats have just had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad WEEK. The shocking win of right-wing teapartier Scott Brown in Massachusetts, stripping the Senate of the filibuster-proof 60 member majority, led to a Democratic circular firing squad of blame, before they quickly retreated to declare healthcare reform dead. The Democrats are just inches away from passing historic healthcare legislation that will ease the suffering of millions of Americans and they just gave up, because a Republican in a pickup truck won one Senate seat.
And to top off the week, the conservative Supreme Court came down with a radical decision allowing corporations to spend unlimited amounts of cash to influence federal campaigns; a move that will largely benefit Republicans in this year’s mid-term elections. The sight of Democrats running for cover and so easily conceding defeat when they STILL hold substantial majorities in both chambers of Congress, with a Democrat in the White House, has been a sorry spectacle to behold. So, what’s the solution? Liam Sullivan of A Liam Show/Drama34 production made a mock Web ad to show Democrats the way forward: Grow a Pair!
The video parody of the sorry state of affairs of wimpy Democrats is described, as “It takes Balls to get things done, and passing American health care reform is going to take lots of Balls.”
The video depicts an hilarious street scene between a minority group of Republican bullies wearing red ties who refuse to allow the much larger crowd of Democrats, sporting blue ties, pass by them on the city street. “Let us Pass” whine the Democrats. The Republican bullies respond with name calling: “Wait Nazi, stupid Liberals, Socialists, Nazi, Marxists.”
The frightened Democrats immediately stand up and fight? Not so much. They cower and cringe and mumble, “Compromise,”… “Should we give them something? Make them like us!!!” The Democrats finally cry out in frustration: “They’re not letting us do anything! What are we supposed to do?”
The video producers have a solution: “GET SOME BALLS—Balls Beer—Things get done when you got balls.”
