Yesss!! Tommy Douglas' grandson has finally done a PSA for U.S. health care reform!
I've said all along (although not, apparently, on my own blog) that Kiefer Sutherland would be the perfect spokesperson for U.S. health care reform - not only because of his family, but because Jack Bauer is the ultimate ass-kicking, terrorist-torturing hero of the right-wing. If they're going to listen to anyone, they've GOT to listen to Jack, right?
But wait a minute... I went looking for the full ad and ran across the original video - which was recorded three years ago as part of a Tommy Douglas tribute at the 2006 NDP Convention.
But no matter. It's too late. Kiefer Sutherland has been outed as (gasp) a Health Care-Loving Canadian Socialist! Now he'll HAVE to start speaking out.
Please. Kiefer. Call Rachel Maddow.
(H/T to Dammit Janet!)
