Loose Ends

Warning: this is going to be another post where I rely on the funny images I've found on the internets, for lack of content. Frankly, I'm exhausted by the whole political climate and the media's "coverage" of it, so these photo-posts amuse me.
1. Separated at birth?

2. The hilarity that is GOP.com:
Exhibit A:

Believe me, repugs--after your performance on immigration, there are NO speakers of Español needing your site translated for them. They already know it says, "If you're not white and rich, get the hell outta here!"

Exhibit B:



What "pledge" is that, exactly? "We pledge to fuck up the environment every single second we're alive! We pledge to drill for oil on every square inch of this planet! We plan to continue the BushCo policy of ignoring climate change and science altogether!"



Exhibit C:

It's hard to see here, but they actually have a little time-clock on the bottom (red stripe) running on the amount of time "since Barack Obama Visited Iraq" -- seriously! Because we got such a fucking ACCURATE portrayal of Iraq from Johnny McFossil, I guess this is supposed to be an impressive talking point? Also note the use of "awkward" photos of the other dem candidates. Um--hello?--with the exception of Hillary, the other three dems have been out of the race for months! Who gives a shit, pugs?

Exhibit D:

Let's just ignore the fact that you're making it seem like Obama is the one who's had "controversial activity" (it's supposed to refer to Obama's VP search committee guy's past) because that's just fucking pathetic. Let's go with taking a look at rhetoric vs. action, McFossil:

--McCain's had how many lobbyists resign from his campaign?

--McCain's wife stands to make a mint from the proposed purchase of Anheuser-Busch by a Belgian company, as Dr. Zaius so eloquently points out.

--McCain seems inherently unable to even USE rhetoric, much less have his actions match it.

I love you! You are brilliant!

Now I shall never see "Hedwig" or Andrea in the same light again.

As for the GOP en espanol...

Don't forget all the Repub Cubans in South Florida. Ay querida - there are many.

DCup said...

Now I'm going to picture Greenspan getting it on with Hedwig!
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah! Give it to me, baby! The whole angry inch! Make my interest rates rise, baby! Yeah!"

See why I should never do erotica? Too many exclamation points!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Good to see Hedwig getting down and political!

You blinded me with that first picture. What's up with you and the toxic imagery of late? Sadistic lunatic. No, I'm sorry, I take that back. dcup is the sadistic lunatic with the first line of her comment. Barf.

I think the McCain pledge thing is that he wants us to buy Pledge in bulk and flood the air with some more CFCs.

Thanks for the images. I'm glad someone else is as exhausted about this as me. I think it was the whole Hillary thing in the media that made it worse.

Dr. Zaius said...

Hey, thanks for the link!

Ohhh, cool separated at birth thing...
I have a piece up about Cindy McCain looting her own charity's medicine cabinet.
She's a bad mamajamma, and all that beer money's gonna buy her a truckload of Vicodin.

Ya know..I don't think when the Korean War, WWI and WWII were going down the presidents or those running for the office all ran over and checked out how the friggin carnage was going. I beleive they took the word of the military minds in charge.

I don't think Obama needs to run right over to Iraq..and Weathervane McCain is such a self-righteous piece of dog poop to even suggest it.

Fran--frightening, isn't it? Andrea's been rode hard and put up wet a few too many times! I don't even want to think about just what that means in terms of Greenspan... ugh! Cuban-American republicans? Frightening.

DCup--hee hee eewww! "Six percentage points forward, five points back!"

Barbara--"Wicked Town" indeed.

Randal--gross, huh? But the images just keep coming!

GKL--that's what tired and disgusted me, too. Now we'll have to endure McFossil's lies for four months. Ugh.

Dr Z--you're quite welcome!

Karen--Can't wait to check that out! I have a super-scary pic of Cindy too--may have to inflict that one on you too.... Apologies in advance, Randal!

Dusty--exactly. WTF would he even DO over there? I certainly don't remember Roosevelt heading over to Normandy or the Russian front too often.
