"Shut up and sing" catches up to Andy Griffith

As he is won’t to do, Glenn Reynolds notes sales on Ama­zon and men­tioned that the Andy Grif­fith show is dis­counted. To nobody’s sur­prise Glenn’s read­ers who have noticed Griffith’s shilling for Oba­macare have been unim­pressed.

Reader Jim Breed writes: “Does the Andy Grif­fith series have the episode where Andy approves as Dr. Obama gives Aunt Bea the blue pill?” Heh.

And reader Paul Beard­sleee writes: “I always enjoy see­ing your point­ers to Ama­zon deals. I think I’ll pass on the Andy Grif­fith Show boxed set. See­ing ‘Sher­iff Tay­lor’ shill for Oba­macare makes me won­der whether Bar­ney Fife needs to go all Ser­pico on his boss.”

Griffith’s fame comes from a time when there was less sep­a­ra­tion from the pub­lic image and the pri­vate beliefs of actors. Grif­fith make a famous video in favor of then can­di­date Obama with Henry Win­kler and Ron Howard before the elec­tion and he donated his time to sup­port Oba­macare on the air.

Now the Andy Grif­fith was a pretty good show and at his age (84) I sus­pect he isn’t all that much wor­ried about the bit of resid­u­als those sales will bring, but I’ll wager a few other mem­bers of the cast and their descen­dents might not be so happy.

As he is won’t to do, Glenn Reynolds notes sales on Amazon and mentioned that the Andy Griffith show is discounted. To nobody’s surprise Glenn’s readers who have noticed Griffith’s shilling for Obamacare have been unimpressed.

Griffith’s fame comes from a time when there was less separation from the public image and the private beliefs of actors. Griffith make a famous video in favor of then candidate Obama with Henry Winkler and Ron Howard before the election and he donated his time to support Obamacare on the air.

Now the Andy Griffith was a pretty good show and at his age (84) I suspect he isn’t all that much worried about the bit of residuals those sales will bring, but I’ll wager a few other members of the cast and their descendents might not be so happy.
