‘Don’t Tell ‘Em’ video: A comical twist on ‘Grubergate’

The clip of Nancy Pelosi in the last 5 seconds of the video are priceless.

Remy Munasifi, known simply as “Remy” is at it again, making satirical, political comments on YouTube, the most recent of which is a parody of the “Gruber scandal,” titled “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”

With more than 83 million views of his work, Remy is getting a political message across, in particular to younger people.

Although Remy teamed with ReasonTV, linked to the libertarian think tank Reason Foundation in 2010, he told the Washington Post that he “is reluctant to declare allegiance to a particular political party and prefers that his videos be considered more topical than political.”

For those not familiar with Remy, he is 34-year-old Arab-American stand-up comedian, parody musician and video artist. Last summer he opened at an appearance by former Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, so we may be seeing him on the campaign trail in the future.

For a full list of Remy’s videos, go to YouTube, where you can find such classic hits as “If You Like Your Health Plan You Can Keep It” and “Tap it: The NSA Slow Jam.”

The music may appeal more to younger readers, but everyone could all use a good laugh about now.
