The title of today’s column may not make much sense if you’ve never watched The Producers, a 1960s Mel Brooks comedy featuring Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel, but you’ll soon see the connection.

That’s because we’re going to laugh at Obamacare, otherwise known as the gift that keeps on giving, and Hitler is part of our satire.

The President’s ill-fated takeover of the healthcare sector has been a complete cluster-you-know-what for the left. It’s not only helped make the American people far more skeptical of big government, it’s also generated some first-rate political humor.

We’ve had everything from Pajama boy abuse to clever political cartoons, all of which has helped turn government-run healthcare into a punch line.

I think Obamacare videos are particularly effective, whether they’re based onsex or mockery, and one of my favorites, from last October, featured the former Fuehrer of Germany’s National Socialist Workers Party.

Now we have a second example of Hitler Obamacare parody, and it is equally funny. It appears that a national socialist shouldn’t rely on the promises of an American quasi-socialist.
