Thursday morning on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Pat Gray attempted to craft a soda-based analogy implying the Republican Party's health care reform bill is merely a watered-down version of Obamacare. However, he made some factual errors when describing the analogous soft drinks, leading to a lengthy side-track on the properties of various Coca-Cola products.
Stu Burguiere chimed in to criticize Coke Life, a recently-launched medium-calorie offering that has performed poorly in most markets due to competition from both traditional Coca-Cola and zero-calorie Coke Zero.
Even though Pat's analogy never quite came together, he and Stu were ready to claim victory. "We got there. There's a great soda reference here, and I think we've found it," Stu crowed.
Glenn was less convinced, as he thought that comparing Obamacare to market-leading Coca-Cola reflected overly positively on the embattled Affordable Care Act.
"You actually have to start [the comparison] with a glass of urine," Pat joked.
"And then work up to what? Urine from the most healthy person you can find? It's still urine, gang," Glenn replied.
