What would Rush Limbaugh's Statue Look Like...


...with a big cigar in his mouth?

A thick, wrinkly, veiny cigar?

"Disclaimer: No such statue of Rush Limbaugh actually exists. This composite fantasy is altered from the original for our imagination, does not depict reality, and is not to be taken seriously for any purpose."

New Memes In Old Bottles 10 - A Touch Of Dick

Nous cousins Américains

It seems that one of history's most notorious Dicks (non-sucker variant) has once again inserted himself into the breach, dear friends...no doubt with the sort of cock-eyed purpose that makes sensitive (and formerly fireproof) document safes tremble in their steel-clad booties at night.

Such a shame that he can't keep such largesse 'in the family', hmmm?

Old Memes In New Bottles 9 - Engendered Bender

A Lad Hussein

Apparently, the latest plan by Tea Party 'thinkers' for overthrowing the oppressive liberal socialist fascism of the Kenyan Konquerer is to identify him to the unwashed and unlettered as some sort of sweet poofy dandy bent on a strapping young slave's revolt, followed by eyebrow waxing and Camomile-flavored moisturizing lip gloss.

Now, I could take the 17 minutes or so to render in some excruciatingly detailed fashion just what such a creature looks like outside the fever dreams of sexually frustrated conservatives with a neck-beard fetish (and for those types, have I got a wet dream for you), but who of us with any claim to an IQ over two perilously low digits really cares?

...from 2008.

Old Memes In New Bottles 8: Dark Begets Dark

Ye Olde Master Painter

One of the primary driving forces behind the trifles displayed on this blog was the White House activities of everyone's favorite Christmas baby, Karl Rove. It seemed during those endlessly tumultuous years of Bush/Cheney global predation that there was no cynical strategy too low or devious for Karl to embark upon on behalf of his paymasters, all done in the noirish quest for obtaining and retaining the only thing fascists worship - power.
Rove has made numerous appearances on this blog, exhibiting unseemly behaviors best kept private...but I'm not ready to let him slink back into the shadows yet - and neither should you, America.

Old Memes In New Bottles 7 - A Fool & His Money...

One Of You Shall Betray Conservatism

Recently, Sean Hannity (long a favorite subject of mine) entertained a guest who apparently dabbles in some sort of political/religious art sideline.
Normally, this would not hold much interest for me - been there done that, and so forth - but my ears pricked up when a matter involving exchange of lucre for one of the artist's creations was tendered, garnering a hard-filched fetish that Hannity will no doubt use as a goad on the filthy liberals that bedevil him so.
I certainly won't criticize the artist here, if for no other reason than he appears to be working the 'opposite corner of the boulevard' (so to speak), and a finger pointed usually gets three back (like Mom says)...So, good on you Jon McNaughton for gaffing such a well-heeled mark to foist your multiple metaphors upon.

Old Memes In New Bottles 6 - Blinded By The White

Red Hot Running Mate

Raw Story:
Former Republican presidential nominee John McCain on Sunday advised presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney to selected a running mate that “he knows he could trust.” “The absolute most important aspect is if something happened to [Romney], would that person be well qualified to take that place?” McCain told ABC’s Jake Tapper on Sunday. “I happen to believe that was the primary factor on my decision in 2008.
