Michelle Malkin's conservative Team Twitchy is having paroxysms of laughter over Wednesday night's Country Music Awards, during which singers Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood mocked Obamacare in a song called "Obamacare by Morning."

After making the obligatory twerking joke, the award show opener lampooned the glitchy launch of Healthcare.gov, which has since been plagued by a slow run time. "Obamacare by morning," began the song. "Why is this taking so long? I'm going to wind up with hemorrhoids if I sit here too long."

The crowd erupted with applause and laughter ... except for Taylor Swift, who looked rather confused.
