As NewsBusters has been reporting for months, late night comics have been tearing the atrocious rollout of ObamaCare apart.

Conceivably the best job done to date was by ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel who during his opening monologue Tuesday evening absolutely savaged the law whilst ridiculing the uninformed young people in this country that have ignorantly supported something that clearly harms them (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Can you imagine a priest taking a group of altar boys to see the movie “Deliverance?”

According to Tim Robbins, when he was an altar boy in New York City, at the age of ten or eleven, a priest at his church took him and some other altar boys into Times Square to see the R-rated film which contained a brutal homosexual rape scene.

ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel began his program Thursday evening bashing the Fox News Network.

After mocking Megyn Kelly and contributor Monica Crowley for claiming that the historical figures Santa Claus and Jesus Christ were white, he presented a trailer for a Fox News version of “It’s a Wonderful Life” wherein Henry Potter is the hero trying to preserve Bedford Falls as an example of free market capitalism against the wishes of the evil, draft-dodging, communist George Bailey (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

America’s late night comics have been tearing the President apart for the disastrous rollout of the ObamaCare exchanges.

Although the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live tried presenting it as a spontaneous skit, anyone with a lukewarm intelligence quotient knew they really were doing a five minute public service announcement for ObamaCare.

If you think guest Owen Wilson was able to create all the charts he had AND get Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to join him AND have a choir that included the band Panic! at the Disco sing a song about healthcare without any assistance from Kimmel or his staff, I’ve got some beachfront property in Florida to sell you (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

Was Oprah Winfrey trying to distract attention Wednesday from the stir she caused accusing a Swiss shop clerk of racism, or just doing PR for the new film she's starring in?

HBO's Bill Maher is clearly getting tired of liberals.

On ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday, he said of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's nanny statism, "That makes me want to join the Tea Party and marry Ann Coulter" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel sent a producer out to Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles to ask passing pedestrians a nonsensical question: “What do you think about President Obama’s decision to pardon the sequester and send it to Portugal?”

Hilarity ensued in the very sure answers given by the very ill-informed low information potential voters in the “Confusing Question of the Day” segment aired on this past Monday’s (March 4) Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC.
