SO YOU PEOPLE JUST HOLD YOUR BREATH!  12:13 pm April 13, 2010


by Ken Layne

Production values far exceed the Demon Sheep Level of recent Republican efforts, so we will give this commercial an “A” for effort. Nobama will tax the oxygen you breathe, and the wheelchairs you use to get around the Hometown Buffet. To make President Obama listen to your concerns, just go to … [Rumproast]

but will he make me marry my horse? And what about the VAMPIRES????

ArkansasFred April 13, 2010 at 12:20 pm

“Over the next few years, IRS agents will being to multiply.”

See that? The bill is already creating jobs.

JMP April 13, 2010 at 12:21 pm

Ugh, another well-tired lying Republican trope; despite the actual fact that tax rates are ridiculously low in America now, both compared to the rest of the world and the past here.

When the top marginal rate gets back up to 90%, as it was under Eisenhower, then you can pull this.

davitydave April 13, 2010 at 12:22 pm

These must be what they’re referring to when they said, “IRS agents will multiply”:

Way Cool Larry April 13, 2010 at 12:22 pm

“personal freedoms will decline”

What a bunch of cocksuckers.

memzilla April 13, 2010 at 12:22 pm

The coda on this videotarditude is one sentence: “Because of what GW Shrub did.”

ManchuCandidate April 13, 2010 at 12:23 pm

It’s got everything but Obama is a Cannibal.

Geez GOPers/libertariantards/anti-tax freaks, if you keep using all your “A” material now then what are you going to have left when its time for Grannie to vote?

Decker April 13, 2010 at 12:23 pm

I want to grow the size of our faux-lesbian bondage clubs. That’s why I’m donating my tax refund to the RNC.

Fuck, I can’t even type that as a joke. It’s like saying Joe Libermann is a decent human being at heart personification of our darkest emotions.


Mr Blifil April 13, 2010 at 12:24 pm

What do we really know about this Obama?

snideinplainsight April 13, 2010 at 12:24 pm

As a socialist, I really believe peeing should fall under the value added tax (VAT). And the Charles Krauthammer should prepare for it right away.

carlgt1 April 13, 2010 at 12:25 pm

well the taxman will come for me if I don’t want my money to go to bogus hypocritical religious “charities” or not pay for wars etc. So boo hoo, my taxes may actually go to help people for a change; and not just blow ‘em up in the name of Jeebus!

Norbert April 13, 2010 at 12:25 pm

I like how Barry turns into Skeletor / Joker Socialism Barry at around 0:10.

SayItWithWookies April 13, 2010 at 12:25 pm

There’s one bodily function the makers of that commercial didn’t mention would get taxed — and aren’t they lucky or they’d owe a fortune.

Aguacatero April 13, 2010 at 12:26 pm

Run, white man, run!

freakishlystrong April 13, 2010 at 12:29 pm

GOP? Us? Ginning up the anti-government nutjobs? THE DEMOCRATS ARE RACE BAITING AGAIN!!1

carlgt1 April 13, 2010 at 12:30 pm

haha, well the taxman will come for me if I don’t want my money to go to bogus hypocritical religious “charities” or not pay for wars etc. So boo hoo, my taxes may actually go to help people for a change; and not just blow ‘em up in the name of Jeebus!

BOOBIES! April 13, 2010 at 12:30 pm

As long as he doesn’t tax my Skittles and Truck Nutz, I have no problem with him.

Cicada April 13, 2010 at 12:31 pm

I like the “IRS agents will multiply” line. It makes it sound like IRS agents are some other species that will breed in your walls like mice.

[re=554704]Way Cool Larry[/re]:

these guys have, in Humpty-Dumpty like fashion, wrecked the meanings of words such as “freedom” and “liberty” and even “liberal” and “socialism” so much that I don’t even know what they mean any more!

slithytoves April 13, 2010 at 12:36 pm

Obama knows where I keep my money? Then I will immediately transfer my coins from the mason jar on the kitchen counter into a piggy bank not shaped like a pig. That should fool him.

madtowngooner April 13, 2010 at 12:36 pm

At least it was rational and understated. Besides, George Harrison said it better years ago.

imissopus April 13, 2010 at 12:37 pm

“Hiring will slow.” Um, more than it has now?

JadedDIssonance April 13, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Waaay too long. I got bored.

steverino247 April 13, 2010 at 12:39 pm

Well, I’d just like to say that anybody who was stunned that Nixon was resigning, such as Ben Stein obviously was if you view that tape (he was the twerp speechwriter in the back with the “Say it ain’t so!” look on his face), is too fucking stupid to be considered an expert on anything.

Sussemilch April 13, 2010 at 12:39 pm

“You can’t run.”

Of course not, you’re sneezing and being fed oxygen. And Obama will rape Ben Franklin in the eye.

gurukalehuru April 13, 2010 at 12:40 pm

[re=554728]carlgt1[/re]: Liberty is good but liberal is bad, freedom is an adjective meaning true blue American patriot, as in freedom fries, and socialism means communist motherfucker. Simple enough?

gurukalehuru April 13, 2010 at 12:42 pm

Who directed that ad, Ridley Scott?

Troubledog April 13, 2010 at 12:43 pm

Taxing wheelchairs, sneezing, and breathing? With all the vitriolic rhetoric, hasn’t the Simple Folk Threshhold already been reached? There aren’t any fence sitters left. Who is this ad trying to frighten?

Even Newt Gingrich understands the Republic party has to find and rally around a positive message, to be “for” something, to win support. And when Newt Gingrich is the brightest political strategist in your party, maybe it’s time to call a cab.

WhatTheHeck April 13, 2010 at 12:44 pm

The plan is working. First, the Census workers cometh. Followed by the taxmans. And finally the death panels.

Chickensmack April 13, 2010 at 12:49 pm

HAH! White people? Running? That’s funny. Driving away in their SUVs, yes. skittering around in their Hoverounds, yes.

Running? I DON’T THINK SO.

tencentcomic April 13, 2010 at 12:50 pm

Wait a m-i-n-u-t-e! I’m a certifable libtard. Don’t I get a big fat d-e-d-u-c-t-i-o-n? or a blanket e-x-e-m-p-t-i-o-n? I’m screwed. I don’t have a gun to protect myself. No truk nutz to keep away the socialist IRS fag-agents. Pity me. Send me to TEXAS, not wait, Alaska, no… FRANCE — where I can be me!!!

Hooray For Anything April 13, 2010 at 12:53 pm

To be honest, I think I’m going to have to come down against the sneeze and breath tax.

the cold war makes me hot April 13, 2010 at 12:54 pm

That ad said nothing about taxing boob implants, dick pills, or fatty scooters, so I think most Amurikans are gonna still be fine.

Lazy Media April 13, 2010 at 12:55 pm

That “Tax Man Cometh” movie looks like it will be pretty scary; I’ma go see it.

June Cleaver 2.0 April 13, 2010 at 12:56 pm

[re=554711]snideinplainsight[/re]: If Nobama is going to tax people on breathing, I can see why Krauthammer is upset.

Egregious April 13, 2010 at 12:59 pm

Well, it’s now clear where all the frat-boy douches went after “W” left office. They’re at the RNC filming eachother running behind pick up trucks.

I’m with my fellow Wonkettes here, if this is what they’re saying now, how nuts are they gonna be come the 2012 election?

June Cleaver 2.0 April 13, 2010 at 1:00 pm

I liked the part about the wheelchair advertisement on the side. Long live capitalism!

irisheyesagain April 13, 2010 at 1:03 pm

How’s that racist-y fear-y thing workin’ out for ya’?

Christ on a cracker these fucktards just have no other ideas.

“Personal freedoms will decline”?!!! Like the kind that says I can abort my mandingo babiez if’n I want to?

So very tired of this shit.

bitchincamaro April 13, 2010 at 1:06 pm

I’m using the “2010 Turbo Tax/Tim Geithner Edition” for my returns. Not only will I receive a cash refund, but Tim autographs all the benjamins, beeatches!

crookedspin April 13, 2010 at 1:12 pm

a scary black man is going to steal your money.

ugh. republicans.

sezme April 13, 2010 at 1:13 pm

Run! Run from the taxman (now that they’ve taxed your wheelchair)!

Fake Thomas Jefferson April 13, 2010 at 1:17 pm

You say that I have been dished up to you as an Anti-Federalist, and ask me if it be just. My opinion was never worthy enough of notice to merit citing; but, since you ask it, I will tell it to you. I am not a Federalist, because I hate their YouTube videos.

Studebaker Hoch April 13, 2010 at 1:20 pm

can we PLEASE start shipping these fuckers off to the FEMA camps already? I want to work the ovens , shoving fat little Teatards in like so many little Poppin’Fresh Doughboys.

The President really is a teleporting psycho-stalker. And that’s why I voted for him.

hiphophitler April 13, 2010 at 1:28 pm

Personally, I like the idea of taxing all the wheelchair-bound, oxygen-sucking, allergy-sufferers. I mean, it’s not like they’re good for much else. You certainly wouldn’t want to fuck them.

TakingAmes April 13, 2010 at 1:29 pm

By “personal freedoms will decline,” do they mean the personal freedom to consensually tongue-kiss whomever I damn well please in my own home? ‘Cause they don’t really seem to like that particular “personal freedom.”

comicbookguy April 13, 2010 at 1:33 pm

He’s come to tax your white women!

themercenary April 13, 2010 at 1:34 pm

If more Americans would run like that white guy in the video, our health care would costs would be a lot less.

JMP April 13, 2010 at 1:53 pm

[re=554834]TakingAmes[/re]: Republicans have always supported your personal freedoms to kiss people they approve of your kissing, just as they support the freedom of women to get pregnant and give birth whether they want to or not.

[re=554731]madtowngooner[/re]: George Harrison said it better years ago.

A great song, and probably the first time a nineteen year old millionaire has put to music his complaints about having to pay taxes. (I think that’s about the same age I went through my Libertarian phase.) He’d have made a great teabagger, apart from being wealthy, talented and cool.

twoeightnine April 13, 2010 at 2:08 pm

Obama knows I keep a $20 rolled up in my sock in case of emergency hooker needing?

I also have to wonder how many of those photos of him are being illegally used. I guarantee the GOP pulled them off of flickr where every photo says:

The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.
