Mmmm mmmm mmmm. Thanks, Nancy!


220-215. No Congress has ever tried to ram through such a huge change with so little public support by such a narrow margin. Not since the run-up to the Civil War, anyhow. And so I don’t actually believe this healthcare shit sandwich will ever make it to law. It has a long, long way to go and it barely cleared the first hurdle.

It may be that the only outcome of Obamacare will be to ignite fifty percent of the country with incandescent antigovernment rage. You know, that nice fifty percent in flyover country who coach Little League, make Frito pie for their new neighbors and go to church more than once a week.

We may really and truly owe Nancy thanks for this turdburger.

Still, I thought some of y’all might like to write your congresswanker with some less amiable sentiments, so I made up a few handy postcards. They’re in the new section. Problem is, the one I think most appropriate — the Shit Sammich, above — is invisible unless you’ve gone into your Zazzle settings and upped them to at least PG-13. On account of the word “shit” being in there. But you can reach it from this direct link.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “jesus christ, you oily crapweasel, is there no end to this attempted picking of pockets?” Well, this time you’re wrong. This time. A postcard is a buck; my markup is nuffink. I’m just trying to help you express yourselfs with my beautiful arts, m’kay?

If you’ve got any bright postcard ideas, sing out in the comments.

Y’all have no idea what I go through. One of my own personal illustration challenges: painting a shit sandwich without being too utterly revolting. I’m not convinced I managed it.

Us nartists call these things picture problems.

..you have captured the essence of Nancy Pelosi and the clowns that passed this..well..crapburger. And that includes the little [Asian racist expletive starting-with-a-“g” deleted] one-termer, Cao, from Lousy-anna.

(Sorry, I don’t revert to such things but this Botox Beyotch has nas me wee-wee’ed up.)

Man, the more I look at it, the more Nancy Pelosi and Gary Oldman’s Dracula look to be interchangeable to me.

I cannot for the life of me understand what they thought they’d get out of all this. The bill that was supposed to SAIL through Congress crawled over broken glass. The centrist Dems are severely damaged for the 2010 elections, the liberal Dems are pissed that abortion was pulled at the last minute. It’ll never pass the Senate and, on the outside chance it does, it’ll never, EVER get out of committee in a form that a majority of House Dems can vote for. They’re firing up their opposition like screaming fuckery. Plus, they’ll make the whole topic of healthcare radioactive for the next Democratic president (whoever that will be).

This was just a big, warm bucket of stupid.

“…a big, warm bucket of stupid.”

Unsurprisingly this a perfect description of congress too.

According to the bill the Sec. of HHS designs the system. So I thought that lovely photo of Sebellius doing some advanced Yoga while trying to cough on her shoulder would be appropriate. With the following caption:

“She taught you to cough, now she’s going to design your healthcare.”

Or, a picture of Pelosi with the caption: “You thought swine flu was bad? Wait until you get Pelosi Pox.”

About ten years ago, I found some postcards at Wal-Mart that featured a photograph of a herd of donkeys standing under a tin-roofed shed. The title said: Board Meeting.

I bought every one–seven of them I think—and through the years I have parceled them out as needed to the asses in Congress. I’ve looked for more, but alas, there are none to be found. I tried drawing some of my own, but I stink. I am in favor of any pictorial representation of Congressional donkeys that makes them out to be jack asses.

P.S. I live in the Texas hill country, and it seems like every little bit of pasture has those tiny little burros wandering around with the grazing horses, and I have no idea why.

Guess who decided to honor us mossy Seattle peons with the glory of her presence today? Yep, the Squeaker of the House (in Dafyyd’s immortal phrasing). Not to mix with the commoners, of course, so no *need* to notify the press ahead of time, but some Tea Party types found out anyway and gave her a rousing welcome outside the hospital she thought she was just giving a nice,private press conference in. The hospital is located in an area even more liberal than Seattle proper, so I was surprised we only got one digital salute — and quite a few supportive honks.

That Pelosi is such a great chef…what will she cook up next? Perhaps some Crapnoli(Cannoli).

Now it goes on to the Senate…and the graveyard of Bills therein. I’m sure we can all be glad that Pelosi isn’t a general as she seems to lack the capacity for strategic thought.

Here in Pa., most people put at least 1 Donkey out with their horses. For some reason, they keep cougars/bobcats/coyotes away.
I always thought Donks were there to make the stupidest horse look smart and pretty. Works in real life too!

Dang, Deborah, why can’t I ever luck out and find good stuff like that at my local Wally World?

S. Weasel, off to click on the linkies. Can hardly wait to see more of your artistry in action. Though, I do confess, the First Family Photo, featuring Lt. Worf, is still my favorite.

This may not mean a lot if you have never heard Flanders and Swann — they were a British comedy duo in the Fifties and Sixties who did stage shows featuring very clever songs. Madeira M’Dear is the one Americans are most likely to have heard (my mother loved that, as performed by — of all people — Tony Randall). The Hippopotamus Song, maybe (“mud, mud, glorious mud!”).

Anyhow, the current British comedy duo Armstrong and Miller do F&S parodies that are…just…perfect. This one had Uncle B ‘n’ me making puddles:

I’ve had my pocket picked in the dead of night on a Saturday before, but at least the thief didn’t hold a press conference congratulating himself.

Someone smarter than me, sorry I can’t remember who, had the idea to use the pro-choice slogans against government health-care; my body, my choice(of health care providers), keep your laws out of my uterus(and the rest of me), etc.

Now that I’ve typed it out I feel dirty.

Carry on.

The Hippopotamus Song! I haven’t heard that in years, but I loved it as a kid. The Brothers Four did a version of it, but I never knew where the original came from. Thanks, Stoaty!

Nancy Pelosi might be as stupid as a big bag of stupid things, but she’s crafty. I wouldn’t put it past her to pull some procedural shenanigans to negate a filibuster. That such a move would drop a depth charge on the Dems in 2010 is immaterial. If they get the change to bring a sixth of the US economy under government control, they’ll be willing to take a few casualties. It ain’t over till the Botox lady concedes defeat.

Just one thing I’d like to see : The Statue of Liberty stabbed in the back, a look of shock and despair on her face as she tries to see the knife. Her torch and tablets are falling from her failing hands. We can clearly see the Obama logo on the knife handle and the legend Vae Victa (woe to the conquered) as the header.

Too much?
