Geico Pitchman Calls On USMC To “Rise Up” Against Obama’s “Socialism”

Character actor R. Lee Ermey, currently starring in that loathsome “Namby-Pamby Land” commercial from Geico, appeared before thousands of Marines at a Toys For Tots event to call on them to “rise up” against the president’s plan to “impose socialism” on the country. Ermey’s one-note career first came to notice in 1987′s Full Metal Jacket when his abusive drill sergeant character pushed a Marine recruit into suicide.

Joe. My. God.

Geico announcer loses job over voice mail attacking racist, anti-gay Tea Party members

You’ve probably never seen his face, and you probably don’t know his name. But if you listen to TV much at all, you have probably heard D.C. Douglas’ voice.

Douglas was the actor who provided the voice of the announcer in those ubiquitous Geico insurance commercials. But not any more, thanks to the ire of some Tea Party members.

Upset over the anti-gay and racist remarks made by some FreedomWorks Tea Party members to gay U.S. Rep. Barney Frank and African-American U.S. Rep. John Lewis during the tumultuous debate over health care reform, Douglas decided to give the FreedomWorks folks a call. He ended up leaving a voice mail for them that, uh, expressed his dismay.
