Geico voice actor fired after insulting tea parties (ha!!! ha!!! ha!!! ha!!!)

Sometimes you have a headline that makes the rest of the story superfluous, but here's the background. Actor Lance Baxter, otherwise known as "D.C. Douglas," currently known as the man who informs you how much Geico can save you on car insurance, left a message last month with FreedomWorks in which he asked the group how many "mentally retarded" people it had on staff and what it would do when a tea partyer "killed someone." On April 14, FreedomWorks put his voicemail online.

Today, Douglas reports he's been dropped from Geico's campaign. His dramatic news release is here; he claims to have been motivated by "the recent gay and racial slurs slung by Tea Party members at Congressman Barney Frank and Representative John Lewis during the Health Care Reform Weekend," and says he's "open to any attorneys taking on this case pro bono."

In the meantime, if you want to hire him: READ MORE...


  1. I am a Geico customer, so I called them and thanked them for firing this POS.

    Mr. Douche, everytime I see your involved in something, I am going to be up in your business.

    Next time, shut your mouth, for your wallet's sake...

  2. Looks like calls to GEICO CORP and MARKETING DEPT brought about the correct and justified results.

  3. Nothing like alienating 70% of your customer base.

    How many voice over actors working for Gieco are mentally retarded?

  4. And of course he's looking for a lawyer to handle his case probono. Like all liberals he's got his hand out and wants something for nothing.

    Great piece.


  5. "... motivated by "the recent gay and racial slurs slung by Tea Party members "

    I don't think he's black.

    And if he had a good case, he wouldn't need a free lawyer.
