Last night at the Country Music Awards, singers Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood performed a skit poking fun at Obamacare. Country music–both fans and performers–tends to skew towards the right (well, okay not the Dixie Chicks), but not everyone in the crowd laughed. Until the mention of hemorrhoids, because those are funny. Unless you have them.
As the Underwood and Paisley hit their last line
Obamacare by morning, over six people served
the audience applauded and whooped. Except for one of the night’s winners, Taylor Swift, who looked really confused.
(And what was Carrie Underwood wearing? Was that a chiffon mini-robe with metal farthingales over a black spandex skirt or maybe those are bike shorts?–yuck!)
George Strait won entertainer of the year. Swift, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line, all won two awards each, with Florida Georgia Line the winning single of the year for their crossover hit “Cruise,” featuring rapper Nelly.
