The opening chords were unmistakable, but Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood weren’t there to honor CMA Entertainer of the Year George Strait last night with a cover of “Amarillo by Morning.”
No, they had a few lyric changes to that iconic song, demonstrating further (as if we need more confirmation) that Obamacare’s rollout has been one big joke, and it’s on us. “Obamacare by morning,” the pair sang, “why’s this taking so long?
Paisley’s involvement in the bit was notable, as he performed at the White House twice during President Obama’s tenure and was invited to sing at two of Obama’s inaugural events in January. Watch for noted Music Row Democrats Tim McGraw and Faith Hill in the intro, who don’t look too amused about what’s coming.

We’ll have cataracts and dementia/Oh this is gettin’ on my last nerve
Obamacare by morning/Over six people served
