Politicizing the Nats
Posted by Staff
The Wall Street Journal:

The Obama administration hasn’t found much support among the GOP for promoting health insurance this fall, but they have won over at least one Republican: Teddy Roosevelt.

The long-suffering presidential mascot for the Washington Nationals baseball team starred in a video promo last night with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to promote Obamacare.

The video aired before the Nationals game last night with the Pittsburgh Pirates. During the video, Teddy is seen enrolling in an insurance plan under the Affordable Care Act and calling the HHS hotline for information. Ms. Sebelius urges Americans to enroll and says, “If Teddy can do it, you can do it.”

It was “HHS Night” at the ballpark last night, where agency employees could buy special T-shirts for $16 and watch someone from the agency throw out the first pitch. Facebook Fark Furl
