Dead Pool Round 154: we’re havin’ a heat wave

Gebrauchshund pulled a sneaky-sneak and picked Shinzo Abe – as it happens, about four hours before the man was declared dead. This, in Weasel’s Dead Pool milieu, is a perfectly cromulent strategy. Congratz!

From what I’ve read of Shinzo Abe since his assassination, he was one of the few world leaders kicking back against the globalist juggernaut.


Are we ready to dabble in the dark side? Then let’s begin.

0. Rule Zero (AKA Steve’s Rule): your pick has to be living when picked. Also, nobody whose execution date is circled on the calendar. Also, please don’t kill anybody. Plus (Pupster’s Rule) no picking someone who’s only famous for being the oldest person alive.

1. Pick a celebrity. Any celebrity — though I reserve the right to nix picks I never heard of (I don’t generally follow the Dead Pool threads carefully, so if you’re unsure of your pick, call it to my attention).

2. We start from scratch every time. No matter who you had last time, or who you may have called between rounds, you have to turn up on this very thread and stake your claim.

3. Poaching and other dirty tricks positively encouraged.

4. Your first choice sticks. Don’t just blurt something out, m’kay? Also, make sure you have a correct spelling of your choice somewhere in your comment. These threads get longish and I use search to figure out if we have a winner.

5. It’s up to you to search the thread and make sure your choice is unique. I’m waayyyy too lazy to catch the dupes. Popular picks go fast.

6. The pool stays open until somebody on the list dies. Feel free to jump in any time. Noobs, strangers, drive-bys and one-comment-wonders — all are welcome.

7. If you want your fabulous prize, you have to entrust me with a mailing address. If you’ve won before, send me your address again. I don’t keep good records.

8. The new DeadPool will begin 6pm WBT (Weasel’s Blog Time) the Friday after the last round is concluded.

The winner, if the winner chooses to entrust me with a mailing address, will receive an Official Certificate of Dick Winning and a small original drawing on paper suffused with elephant shit particles. Because I’m fresh out of fairy shit particles.

I’m looking at the unprecedented disaster of Joey B’s White House, and I’m assuming…

— Joey will not make it through his term, one way or another

— TPTB will absolutely not have Kakamala as president

— Rancid Nan Pelosi is a superb insider power politician, though thoroughly evil

So, my DB pick is current veep Kamala Harris.  She must go first.

When she croaks, Pelosi is confirmed as vice president.  Now the way is clear for Joey to be ousted, whether through death, resignation, or constitutional removal, Nancy becomes president, and then the actually desired replacement is named and installed after Nance resigns (or dies, my preference).  I don’t know who will end up filling out the rest of Joey’s term; there are several possibilities.

For reasons unknown to me, I am going to leave the usual suspects to others this round and while hoping that Jane Fonda is still suffering from the STD she no doubt got while filming Klute ( she’s a method actress for sure since she sure isn’t a talented actress) I am not going to choose her either. Let her rot.

So, out of the clear blue waves emanating from old tv, I am going to choose Bob Barker of “The Price Is Right” fame.

Come on down, Bob. You’re already 98, and if each re-run adds a minute to your age (sort of a reverse television-set-of-Dorian-Gray effect) you’re at least 135.

While my reasons still hold for my pick of a certain turncoat Senator from Texas last time, they are outweighed by something related to Uncle Al’s choice.

The American Left, including their GOPe allies, have pushed things too far, too fast. Their theft of the previous election was so blatant that it is expected that either they will do it again . . . or just declare some sort of national emergency [mind you, we are under 42 active “states of emergency” right now FWIW] and just cancel the elections and rule by decree.

Now President* Biden on a good day, with a downhill run, and a blazing tailwind is at best a dyslexic cross-threaded left-handed monkey wrench. Having him involved in a seizure of power would be tragicomically self destructive. HOWEVER, as a trigger for such a seizure, if the Left were to kinetically ensure that he would not be around while blaming various patriots . . . might hold up long enough for them to seize and hold power [to students of political science, it is the first 24 hours after a coup that are critical as to whether it holds]. So Biden, at the hands of the Left, for purposes of seizing power. And no I am not a nice person, and yes I am deeply cynical. I suspect my guess is worthy of my avatar’s namesake.

Another oldie-but-goodie:

I choose Barret Eugene “Barry” Hansen, also known as Dr. Demento to receive the dick this round.

Born on 4/2/41 – almost an April Fools baby – now aged 81yo.

BTW: Uncle Al – Pelosi is not automatic for the VP spot. Ol’ Slow Joe can pick anyone he wants if Kamala goes. Just look at Gerald Ford: out of nowhere, he’s picked by Nixon after Agnew resigns. Ford then becomes the first UNELECTED president after Nixon resigns.

So – I think his minions will pick someone _really_ repulsive for replacement VP. Pelosi is too old, and just about as screwed up as Joe from drunkenness and insanity.
Someone like Pete Buttigieg, or even Beto O’Rourke. Someone they can manipulate convincingly. *shudder* Possibly even Hillary. God save us all.

@Uncle Al…having survived recall, Gavin “Grusome” Newsom is looking mighty smug…a likely scenario; Biden flatlines, Harris steps into POTUS and the party selects Newsom to fill her term as VP. 2024 Harris is stabbed in the front and Newsom runs…Gretchen Whitmer would be a natural pairing..Newsom pulls in the hard left, sappy womyn vote, and Whitmer the mushy middle.

@harbqll: “Instead I’ll go with Keith Richards.” The world’s oldest LOOKING rock-n-roller.

@LavenderGirl: I’m seeing this as the preferred strategy – don’t jump in immediately with a pick, but lurk around scanning the news for any sudden and immediate targets. I’m going to keep this in mind for the next pool.

RE: Derek Draper: sympathies to his family and friends, but – being the arsehole that I am – has he had all of his jabs and boosters? I would be surprised if he hadn’t.
“It will prevent infection – it will prevent spread – it will reduce severity . . .” Total bullshite, all of it.
