The DC Folly Trolley – 10/28/12

Mitt Romney continually attacks President Obama for apologizing for America during his first trip abroad.

The nations of the world got to see a friendly face for a change.

The president, of course, did not apologize. The visits to foreign countries could be characterized as a necessary fence mending tour to wipe the slate clean in the aftermath of the clumsy foreign policy of the previous administration.

The callous treatment of nations by the Bush/Cheney regime can only be described as retarded, mentally challenged, stupid.  Yes, that’s it, stupid.

Mending fences was the least the new president could do.


Senility strikes early for Republican politicians – somewhere around the age of 40.


Republicans believe the Earth is 9000 years old. It is of course much older. However, researchers at the Sardo Institute of Higher Learning located in Pasta Fagioli, Italy, have isolated a defective gene created by God in the year 9182 BCE. The nasty little piece of DNA has migrated to the gene pool of Republicans. According to scientists at the Institute the gene causes Republicans to make stupid remarks about women, sex, rape and abortion.

Scientists have named the gene the GWB anomaly after former U.S. President George W. Bush.


The latest Republican to make such a remark and among the many who possess the GWB anomaly,is one Richard Mourdock, now running for the Indiana Senate seat seized from Sen. Richard Lugar by Tea Party zealots.

OK, so the guy says he stated his beliefs poorly. To that I say, no he didn’t. What he said is exactly what he believes.

Who knows what evil lurks in the deep, dark recesses of the GOP brain?


Some Republican guy named Mourdock

Emerged from a cave a feared warlock

He said from a rape

No woman can escape

Though conception may leave her in shock.


A life cannot be aborted

Says Mourdock in words contorted

God he avers is OK

With a woman suffering each day

Through a life that rape has distorted.


A good way to make some extra cash during retirement is to rob banks. After all, the biggest bank robbers today are the bankers themselves.

Of course, the government guarantees that the bankers will get away with it. You might not be so lucky.


Obama says Ayn Rand is for teens. Not too sure about that. The philosophy may be puerile, but the books are definitely not for the young.

The final resting place of the novelist and her husband. Who would have thought that such an innocent woman could be the purveyor of a pernicious philosophy.

I tried to read Atlas Shrugged and was well out of my teens at the time. I got about halfway through. It was so god awful I just could not finish it. It was worse than The Brothers Karamazov, which I forced myself to finish. Can’t recommend either novel however.

I have read about Rand’s ideas and agree with Obama: They are childish. Her philosophy, called Objectivism, promotes the idea of rational selfishness – itself a contradiction. All selfishness is irrational.

We all act in our own self-interest. It is a need that exists in all of nature. But we can do so without being selfish – a consuming passion that arises from sheer greed and is a destructive force.

Rand was also a proponent of laissez-faire capitalism. She would be surprised to learn that today’s Wall Street capitalists reject that economic idea. You don’t have to read the modern trade agreements entered into by the United States with numerous foreign nations to realize that the pacts consist of a host of regulations that protect American corporations.

Laissez-faire??? If it were truly implemented, Wall Street would have a collective heart attack.

Nothing says rejection of Ayn Rand’s Objectivism than modern trade policy. The 1% dumped this deified pseudo-philosopher’s ideas long ago. With one very important exception. They apply Objectivism to the rest of us. To sum it up in a simple phrase: You’re on your own pal.


John Sununu accused Colin Powell of racism because the former general endorsed Barack Obama for president.

I recall Powell’s 2008 announcement supporting Obama. It was one of the most reasoned endorsements I’d heard from any public figure. He supports the president for many of the same reasons, many of which are still valid.

Sununu, on the other hand, is a grouchy old man, who should have been turned out to pasture years ago. Unlike other ill-tempered and dangerous neocons on the Romney team, Sununu is harmless.

However, to accuse someone of racism as a member of a party that exploits that evil idea for political gain is reckless, irresponsible and foolhardy.

Well, whaddya know. I just came up with a definition of the entire GOP establishment.


Romney’s allies quite frequently base
Their attacks on Obama on race.
Of this fact, Mitt’s aware—
Seems he just doesn’t care.
Mitt’s campaign’s racist face — a disgrace!

Recently caught an article for women about the advantages of having small breasts.

I guess there are many good reasons for having small breasts, not the least of which is millions of men love them. Yes, that’s right. Some don’t like to admit it, for whatever reason I’ve never understood. But they do love them.

I’ve always felt big breasts are beautiful and small breasts are adorable.

But then again, I’m a leg man so I really don’t care.

Either way, women with small breasts have no need to fret.

Men are luckier. The bigger the better, sure. But one size fits all.

And I hope this year all sizes vote for Obama.


By the way, there is also a nascent pubic hair debate. Do like yours with or without?

You’ll have to excuse me now. I’m late for an appointment with my psychiatrist. She’s a small breasted, with.

  1. Thanks for sharing, this is a fantastic article.Really thank you! Will read on…

  2. I read The Brothers K as a teen and loved it. I also read Atlas Shrugged as a teen and liked it. But I outgrew the latter. 🙂

    Good post, as always!

    • I was studying Russian at the time and had a copy of BK in both languages. Tried switching from one to the other from time to time. Big mistake. Did manage to get through the English version. Toyed with Crime and Punishment for a while. But never got started. I’ll wait for the next Grisham book.
