Behind the Ad: House Republicans go all "Arrested Development" on ObamaCare

By Richard K. Barry

Who: The House Republican Conference

Where: Web ad

What's going on: In a spoof of the opening credits of the cable TV show "Arrested Development," House Republicans are claiming all sorts of destruction in a new ad as a result of ObamaCare. Of course, once again, Republicans are going after a full repeal of the president's healthcare law very shortly so it's a timely piece.

We've heard these lines before, but cleverness should be acknowledged and this is kind of fun.

  • First, this is not cross-posted at Phantom Public.

    It is a good idea for an ad. I probably think that because I love Arrested Development and I'm very much looking to the weekend after next. But also because I love the show, I think the ad itself is terrible. It consistently misses the tone and rhythm of the show. I know I'm a partisan, but I'm sure that if the Democrats had done it, it would have been far better. But then, the Democrats have actual creative people in their employ.

  • Okay, but they thought of it first. Doesn't that count for something?
