GOP goes for laughs: Anti-Obamacare ad to run during Stewart’s ‘Daily Show’

- The Washington Times - Tuesday, October 29, 2013

The Republican National Committee has released a series of ads mocking the Obamacare rollout, with one of the slap-stick skits airing during Tuesday night's episode of "The Daily Show."

Reminiscent of the "Get a Mac" campaign back in 2006 that pointed out the pitfalls of the PC, the RNC ad is meant to point out the difference between the public and private sectors when it comes to customer service and reliability.

The ad opens with a man, acting as Obamacare, who is struggling to pick himself up off the ground because he's "down for maintenance."

Before comparing himself to the DMV, the man tries to get up again, only to plop back down clumsily.

"Oh, down again," says the man playing the private sector. "Can I get you a chair or something?"
