What's Weirder?: Obamacare rap spoof or Rove's response

The Obamacare rap spoof of Snoop Dog (Snoop Lion?)'s "Drop it like it's hot" is weirdly fascinating.

“So don’t stand and diddle. My healthcare’s the ‘shizzle.’ It’s chock full of top notch healthcare ‘provizzles.’"

 

But even weirder was Karl Rove's response on Fox. According to Politico, Rove said:

“I worry about something that seems aim to glorification of the commander-in-chief, the president of the United States as opposed to simply advocating young people go out and sign up for this entitlement program,” Rove said Thursday on Fox News’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.” Rove continued, “This disturbingly gets too close to the line. I think it, in fact, crosses it.” “Could you imagine if such a thing had been run by George Bush or Bill Clinton or Bush 41 or Reagan?” Rove asked. “‘I have two terms, I’m really cool, I’m really hip.’ How much public outcry there could have been?”
