Wassup with Republicans in weird relationships with monkeys on the big screen?

TOP TO BOTTOM: Clint in Every Which Way But Loose, Reagan in Bedtime for Bonzo, Heston in Planet of the Apes. Really…Right-wingers hate same-sex relationships but have a unnatural attraction to monkeys??? Republicians deny EVOLUTION…but, perhaps you and I would, too, if evolution ended in our families with appearance of opposable thumbs.

 

 

 

 

Remembering Katrina and Compassionate Conservatives

7 years ago today (Monday, August 29) Katrina hit New Orleans, Louisiana as a Category 3 hurricane   in southeast Louisiana causing severe destruction…1836 deaths as the levee system catastrophically failed, in many cases hours after the storm had moved inland.  Eventually 80% of the city and large tracts of neighboring parishes became flooded, and the floodwaters lingered for weeks.
Today Karma, GOP Convention and Issac reminds us of what a compassionate Conservative is and isn’t.

I wish that I had created this image at the time.

Mitt Romney…You want to play Birther? Game on!

Really, Willard? You want to go the Birther route? Game on. Your great-grandfather had 3 wives and fled to Mexico to escape arrest. You daddy was born in Mexico and when they put the heat your unwanted clan you folks voluntarily deported yourselves back to the USA where you were born an anchor baby. George Romney illegally ran for president in 1968.

And they say Mitt doesn’t appeal to women. He’s got Casey Anthony!

Where do I begin? On the lower right is Ted (One Hit Wonder) Nugent. He likes to kill helpless animals with a bow. Lower left is Jon Voight who in Deliverance was saved from hillbilly rape by Burt Reynolds’ bow and arrow. Coincidence? I don’t think so. John also played a male prostitute in the Brokeback Mountain prequel Midnight Cowboy. Ted and Clint and Chuck Norris became famous by waving really big guns around. Gene Simmons like most of these no-talent idiots is only in it for the money and acts outrageous to gain attention. Clint is the only one who once had some talent but now is senile and so admires our only senile president (“I don’t remember, I have no recollection…”) Ronald Reagan. Ronnie also carried a big gun as host of old tv oater Death Valley Days. Michael Vick endorsed Romney based on their mutual understanding of dogs: “Bitches love to suffer, even die for their masters”. Newest celeb to jump on is Casey Anthony: “Mitt and I believe Zygotes are sacred but after you pop one out, who cares?” Okay, you caught me…OJ hasn’t endorsed yet…again, I say “yet”.


 

 

 

 

 

HAPPY VETERANS DAY!

TOP: Stumbled across one of my toons from the 2008 election. Somehow seems relevant Vet Day 2012. Directly above: Just a couple of old Nam vets annoying Scott Walker in Madison 2010. That’s me on the left (of course) on the wrong side of the police barricade (as usual). A shout out to all my sisters and brothers on OUR DAY…I’m a union guy so I usually have to work on Veterans Day while the rest of my non-vet family has the day off. This year I’m off…because it’s Sunday, but I’ll pretend to be honored. Thanks for your made-in China support-our-troops ribbons.
