If you needed proof that President Obama is the Marshall Applewhite of modern American politics, look no further than his Twitter feed, where he is encouraging his followers to annoy relatives with Obamacare talking points during Thanksgiving.
Who does that? It’s reminiscent of the Heaven’s Gate cult, which is interesting given that in the YouTube video put out by Organizing for Action there is a young man who imagines his parents telling him that they’ve joined a cult.
Surrounded by friends, family and loved ones, why on earth would anyone bring up Obamacare registration? What would the proper response even be? “Yeah, I would totally register, but the website hasn’t worked for over a month now.”
All you want to do is watch football, play Scrabble by the fireplace, maybe play a few video games with your brother and stuff your gut with meat, but your mom insists on talking about Obamacare registration. If she insists, ask her when the Hale–Bopp comet is set to return.
