Eating Our Lunch

Track-Meet-Cigna.jpg

I’m only wondering why it took so long for the Dems to turn the laser beam — given the gaping absence of competition — on the fat, happy and defiant health insurance industry. Given the super size of the target, the new Move On video, “Track Meet,” is wickedly funny (with the Blue Cross guy and the sexualizing of Big Blue’s obscene profiteering being perfectly audacious).

Harry and Louise who? The system is so out of whack, these outlandish caricatures are spot-on. The killer meme throughout the rest of the battle?

It’s gluttony.
