Weekend Mashup: Jonathan Gruber…or MacGruber?

For someone employed by MIT, you’d think Jonathan Gruber would be a bit smarter.

But alas, he isn’t.

The slow trickle of ridiculously mean-spirited and disdainful comments Gruber has made about the American voter in explaining how Obamacare was rammed down our throats has been nothing short of shocking. Nancy Pelosi panicked so badly about it that she immediately pretended not to know who the guy is, despite having cited and praised the so-called “economist” in the past.

But we know who he is: an absolute bumbling idiot whose foot is lodged so deeply in his mouth that it’s a wonder he can still speak.

In fact, he reminded us of another famous “Gruber” in recent years: MacGruber!

You remember MacGruber, right? He’s the former Green Beret, Navy SEAL, and Army Ranger who rose to great fame on Saturday Night Live, later spawning his own feature film.

If you need a refresher, check out the video I assembled above in cooperation with Grabien. After a few minutes, you’ll be hard-pressed to tell these two Gruber goobers apart.
