I’m guilty today of gazing at celebrity hair, but I can’t pass up this chance to dwell on John Fugelsang.
And it’s a nice promo of a new Wisconsin blog. One happy accident that came out of Waukesha-gate is the discovery of a new Progressive blog “Waukesha Wonk” by Lisa Mux. Yes. It did blow me away that more emerges from Waukesha County than thousands of mysterious votes. A snippet of Lisa’s piece from last Saturday featuring Stephanie Miller, Hal Sparks, and John Fugelsang is here:
“The Sexy Liberal Show in Madison last night was a cathartic even for me, and so damn fun. With times tense and intense around these parts, this show was downright therapeutic. Plus, at $35 per non-VIP ticket, it was a lot cheaper than therapy. And, unexpectedly, I met John Fugelsang, one of the stars of the show, when he was out foraging for food about two hours before it all began. He had a hat covering his trademark Patrick Dempsey-esque mane, so he went largely unnoticed. But I digress. Back to the show. …”
I had to check on the status of John Fugelsang’s mop of hair and so I began to rifle through YouTube. He does have nice hair, but it’s obvious he’s much more than a tousled cut and style.
In the video above, Fugelsang has a heart-to-heart chat with Republicans to explain why healthcare reform and the public option represent core values the GOP believes in.
Here are 3 of John’s key points with matching jokes:
1) If you’re afraid of competition, you’re not really a Capitalist.
“Saying the public option will hurt health insurance companies is like saying community college will hurt the ivy league. “
2) If you don’t want to save American lives, you don’t get to call yourselves a “patriot”.
“Don’t tell me it’s a job-killing bill, alright? Because you guys supported NAFTA and that screwed a lot more young people than NAMBLA”
3) If you don’t want to help the sick, stop calling yourself “Christians”.
“Jesus never once asked a leper for a copay.”
Finally, I present photographs culled from the web for the sole purpose of making a hairstyle comparison. (I’ll try not to do repeat of this within any 6 month period. )
