Americans Have a God-Given Right to Take This Job and Shove It! [VIDEO]

Ron Wyden (D-OR) is running this ad touting health care portability, and it’s really quite good. Humor, well-executed, is one of the best ways to reach people.

It’s a take-off of Ronald Reagan’s famous ad, “It’s expand=1] Morning Again in America.”

As Atrios says ...

There's a weird retro vibe to this ad as it harkens back to a simpler time when saying your job sucked and your boss was an asshole was a perfectly normal thing to do. Now I get the sense that social pressure demands we worship our corporate overlords and thank them for the privilege.
