Tony Dinks Deng.

Talk about a drop shot heard ’round the world, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is rumored to have had an affair with social gadfly Wendi Deng.

And exactly who is Wendi Deng?

She is the former wife of media mogul Rupert Murdoch and she fell head over butt for those blue British eyes.  While she was married.  To Rupert Murdoch.

The two are now amicably divorced.

No word on how “amicable” her affair de Blair remains.

BLAIR

The devil is in Tony Blair’s ole blue eyes.

.

Wendi went head over butt
For a guy with a famed British strut.
He was Minister Prime
Who had a great time
Taking Deng from a rut, so tut tut.
.
It was all lovey dovey for sure
For Wendi the Brit had the cure.
They rolled in the hay
On many a day
With allure she gave Tony the tour.
.
Her body of such fine design
Gave the Brit a jolly old time.
He was great in the bed
So she took him and said
I’ll unwed for a time so sublime.
.
With Murdoch she could not endure
A life so starkly obscure.
To Tony she went
Told Rupert get bent
I’m having a marriage detour.

Limerick Lunacy.

A woman worked hard to design
A plan for a guy she’d entwine
In matrimonial bliss
So she gave him a kiss
Then soon on a bed she’d recline.
.
A man who taught graphic design 
Once took a smart student to dine. 
He showed her his work
She thought “such a jerk”
But she had a good time on Rhine wine.
.
Stayed up till three playing cards
Had far fewer wins than discards
Enjoyed a good drink
While I stayed in the pink
So late in the morn’ here’s regards.
.
The drink you’ve guessed was not punch
After a few came the crunch
You may think it was Hell
But I slept real well 
Now I’m ready for breakfast and lunch.

The DC Folly Trolley – 12/01/13

A Bear For Dinner.

As governor of Alaska, former defeated GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin was set to pardon some turkeys at Thanksgiving when an unidentified aide whispered in her ear that all turkeys were Democrats. She discontinued the practice immediately because she never knowingly pardoned a member of the opposing party.

When she was informed that all Republican politicians are turkeys Palin peremptorily pardoned all fowl.  She then went into the wilds, shot an Alaskan brown bear, stuffed it and served it for Thanksgiving dinner.

A Sick Country.

If we started in 1960 and we said that as productivity goes up…then the minimum wage is going to go up the same, the minimum wage today would be about $22 an hour. With the minimum of $7.25 an hour, what happened to the other$14. It certainly didn’t go to the workers.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

There is a sickness upon the land. It is called greed and corruption.

No Shave November.

The 11th month of the year is a time when you can stop shaving for thirty days.  Yes, it’s really OK.  And not just for men.

Many people think shaving is a burden borne only by men since most scrape their faces with sharp stainless steel blades every morning.

The ritual is however practiced by women who routinely shave several of their body parts while bathing or in the shower.

So if they participate in the no shave month they will grow hair in places that have not seen it in years and also take a brief respite from the daily chore.

Alas, with the arrival of December comes not only the eager anticipation of Santa and his eight tiny reindeer, but also the return to that noisome task of shaving every day.

In keeping with the tradition of “taking it off” in the month known for shopping frenzy, the Sardo Institute has declared December World Shave Month.

In honor of the occasion, Professor Mangiapasta Bacciagalupe, Poet Laureate Emeritus Summa Cumma Louder, will deliver an ode to mark the festivities.

Below is a transcript of the Professor’s contribution:

(Warning: Persons offended by sexually explicit material should skip the following entry. You must be over the age of 18 to continue reading the post. That’s because it gets really, really dirty).

A woman did it on a dare.
Shaved off all her pubic hair.
Here’s a story not oft’ told.
Soon she caught an awful cold.
‘Cause now it gets real chilly there.
.
If you think this story dumb
‘Bout the gal shaved ‘neath her bum.
It’s true I say in total sum.
For now she’ll sneeze instead of cum.
.
‘Cause ‘tween her legs strange noise emits
Whenever atop a man she sits.
What was that,” the guys would shout.
Something’s odd down there no doubt.”
.
I shaved it off because it pleases.”
Now poor thing it always sneezes.”
Beware, true words we shall not flout.
As stranger things soon came about.
.
Her shaved bottom had no match..
The cold it caught all could catch.
The guys she slept with were made fools.
For all a cold had gripped their tools
Which sneezed and sneezed while in her snatch.
.
This story’s true, you can believe.
It’s not my purpose to deceive.
So now you know you must beware
That when you shave your pubic hair
You cannot know what you’ll receive.
.
So now please take this sound advice.
Keep it trim and looking nice.
For if you shave it smooth as ice,
You then must pay a frightful price.
.
A cold down there can really bite.
You’ll have to hide, stay out of site.
So if your tempted, best think twice.
A little hair can well entice.
.
A cold no drug can ever cure.
A cold down there you must endure.
So don’t expose it to a breeze
That’s when it will likely sneeze.
So stay you must behind closed door.
.
When at last you do come out
Do not shake it all about.
For friends will no doubt quickly shun you.
They’ll fear a cold be catching from you.
And think of you an awful lout.

Running Scared.

He’s scared. He’s real scared. In fact, he running scared.

The Tea Party is backing a candidate in the Republican race for the Senate and they’re are going after Mitch McConnell.

You would think the Tea Party money bags would be satisfied with McConnell’s performance. After all, he’s the man most responsible for the blockade of that one august body. He’s the man who make of it a laughingstock. He may well be the most extremist GOP leader in the Senate’s history.

mich

Damn, those suckers are squeezin’ hard.

Yet the Tea Party is out to get him and McConnell is running scared.

Mitch will win the primary. And more than likely retain his Senate seat. But the challenge is a warning to all others: Do what the big money tells you to do or else.

Sarah Palin: Career Change.

Sarah Palin has changed careers from politician telling jokes to comedian telling politician jokes.

In an interview on Today, the perennial TV talk show guest described her version of an alternative to Obamacare.

Here is what Lady Sarah had to say:

The plan is to allow those things that had been proposed over many years to reform a health-care system in America that certainly does need more help so that there’s more competition, there’s less tort reform threat, there’s less trajectory of the cost increases, and those plans have been proposed over and over again.”

Sounds to me like she’s describing the right wing Heritage Foundation’s idea of a health care plan, otherwise better known as Obamacare.

She then babbled:

And what thwarts those plans?  It’s the far left.  It’s President Obama and his supporters who will not allow the Republicans to usher in free market, patient-centered, doctor-patient relationship links to reform health care.”

Now that’s a statement straight from Planet Palin, an orb known to exist in the farthest reaches of the universe. And that’s really “out ‘dere.”

Hello, Sarah? Sarah, are you there? Come in Sarah.

Houston, we have a problem. Sarah Palin is lost in space.

Something’s Wrong with Pope Francis.

There must be something wrong with Pope Francis. He’s acting like a Christian. Not even popes can be accused of taking such an out of character step as Francis just did.

In his first major publication, the Holy Father decried what is more commonly called vulture capitalism, that is, the unfettered brand that cruelly places profit, profit and more profit ahead of the welfare of mankind.

A headline in The Guardian read: “Pope Francis understands economics better than most politicians.”

That statement of course is exactly wrong about politicians. They understand. They know all too well. The Pope is merely speaking the truth. As for politicians, they’re too involved in the payola chase to admit that the Pontiff is speaking truth to power.

And the right wing is already up in arms. The conservative Accuracy in Media director Cliff Kincaid has criticized the Pontiff for releasing Evangilii Godium or Joy of the Gospel, a document in which the Pope called trickle-down economics “a naive theory that has never been confirmed by the facts.”

Unfairly and by inference, Kincaid tainted the Pope’s writing by associating it with Marxism. Nothing really new in that attack though. The right has always made it a point to call a “communist” anyone who disagrees with their way of life.

pope francis

To the right wing, he’s a Marxist; for the rest of us, a populist Christian.

Francis’ statement however is absolutely true.

The term “trickle-down economics” is nothing more than a right wing propaganda contrivance intended to convince the working class that the upward distribution of wealth benefits all who work for a living. That of course is nonsense.

The same can be said of the phrase “a rising tide lifts all boats.” To benefit from a rising tide, you first need a boat. For a rising tide can drown all who are left to die on the shoals of economic life.

The Pontiff’s advocacy of economic justice is not a call to Marxism despite the fact that right wing propagandists are hard at work demeaning the Pontiffs statement as influenced by the nineteenth economic philosopher.

The new world economic order that Kincaid accuses Francis of advocating for is not the order that is already well established on this woe begotten planet

The new reality that infests the global economy is one that the conservative spokesperson turns a blind eye to.  Right wing corporate pirates and their accessories to the crime have gone to great lengths to make the world economy a source of unimaginable wealth for themselves and one of misery, and even death, for billions of human beings.

Somebody got to the Pope,” writes Muslim scholar Reza Aslan. “It was Jesus. Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin would call Jesus a Marxist.”

If the Pope does not desist from his message of economic justice, the titans of vulture capitalism will be out to get him and by any means necessary. First will come the typical right wing propaganda barrage. Next who knows. Possibly an attempted assassination, first as a warning shot, and then the real thing.

No reasonable person can doubt that the monsters on Wall Street and the masterminds of global corporations will let anything or anyone stand in their way.

After all, they’ve already got the president of the United States in their back pocket.

Plans After The White House.

What to do? What to do? ‘Tis a puzzlement.

What does a president do after leaving the White House besides getting filthy rich?

Apparently one of the First Daughters will have a say in the matter.

Will Sasha choose to stay in DC or move back to Chicago? Stay tuned. The gaggle of media reporters is hot on the story.

comic obama

The leader of the pack: Obama, Obama, Obama and Obama, LLP.

Either way, as a former prez, Obama can rent offices on K Street and establish a lobbying firm and call it Obama and Obama as he teams up with the First Lady.

Both would make superlative lobbyists-to say nothing of millions of bucks-appealing to Democratic Congressional critters to pass legislation favorable to Republican clients.

Later, as the daughters graduate from law school, the firm would change its name to Obama, Obama and Obama; then to Obama, Obama, Obama and Obama.

Wait till the grand kids start joining the firm.

Only in America.

Dick Durbin Does Dems Dirty.

The senior senator from Illinois, Dick Durbin, who inexplicably has made a sharp right wing turn on safety net issues, revealed last week that a certain Repub congressman while in a meeting with Barack Obama said he “couldn’t stand to look at him.”

 durbin

Shades of Sarah Palin, Little Dicky Durbin shoots self in foot twice in one month.

The White House quickly dumped on Durbin after Majority Leader Harry Reid spilled the goods on the congressional GOP no-gooder, some guy from Texas who goes by the name of Pete Sessions. The dump-dump occurred when Press Secretary Jay Carney described the event as whatchacall your “mis-communication.”

I wonder if Durbin isn’t trying to cover his tracks after he brazenly lied about Social Security going broke on the Fox GOP propaganda network.

Preacher Cures Deaf.

Multimillionaire TV preacher and African diamond mine wage slaver Pat Robertson chided a woman who prayed to God to cure her son’s deafness. Her prayers have been ignored and the preacher man said she must have done something to displease God if He chose not to answer her entreaties.

The preacher continued his chiding by telling the woman that he himself had restored hearing to the deaf by “rebuking” the bad spirit of deafness.

 spirit

The search for Pat Robertson’s Bad Spirit of Deafness yielded this photo by David Levine of Portland, OR entitled Libation to the Spirits.  Methinks Pat has been communicating with this spirit more than he would like to admit.

Way to go Pat. Must be an easy malady to cure if you’ve done it. There are many more people suffering from deafness you could turn your miracle working toward.

Perhaps your co-pays and deductibles are too high.

Hey, you wouldn’t be willing plug up that volcano erupting in Sicily would you?

Combating Hunger In America.

There’s absolutely no reason for anyone to go hungry in America.

For example, generic cornflakes with a smidgen of powdered milk makes for a wonderfully nutritious meal. For lunch, add a pinch of salt. Dinner, some pepper or oregano.

Dandelion leaves are also nutritious. You can pick them from your lawn or your neighbors’. Be careful you don’t get shot however.

Ever thought about shoplifting? Now that winter’s coming, you can wear a heavy overcoat without being suspicious. Slip a can of peas or green beans into oversize pockets and no one will ever notice. Eating one or two peas a day can make for a wonderful treat and they last for a long time.

Don’t worry about getting caught shoplifting. Ladies, if you are ever searched simply yell “RAPE” at the top of your lungs. The manager will give you a bag of groceries just to shut you up.

And for the guys, insist that searching violates your privacy rights and demand to call your attorney.

And if nothing else works, there’s always the soup kitchen.  They’re making a comeback.

Really Bad News.

Want to hear some really bad news? The deficit is dwindling. Yes, that’s right, the deficit is falling. It will probably be less than 5% of GDP this year and a whole lot less than that next year, according to Paul Krugman.

http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/05/08/the-dwindling-deficit/?smid=tw-NytimesKrugman&seid=auto

English: "Paul Krugman lectured on "...

English: “Paul Krugman lectured on “After Bush – The End of the Neo-Conservatives and the Moment for the Democrats” to over 500 guests in the jam-packed big lecture hall at the German National Library in Frankfurt” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Barons von Simpson and von Bowles are in a tizzy. It’s been more than two years now since the two predicted the nation’s economy would implode in two years.

Well, it’s still going and the two aristocrats are still waiting for the fateful event and growing angrier by the minute that economic destruction isn’t happening the way they predicted.

Von Simpson is reported to have done a Rumpelstiltskin, pounding the floor so hard that he opened a hole and fell through.

And von Bowles, whose shouts set off alarms in the corporate media heard round the world, is said to be cooped up in his fancy digs attending only board gigs for which he receives a quarter of a million dollars, his voice now a veritable peep.

bowles

Erskine Bowles, as President of the University of North Carolina, signs an agreement with two generals of the U.S. Marine Corps. Bowles is a two time loser in campaigns for Senator from North Carolina. This loser’s political corpse has been repeatedly resurrected by President Obama each and every time he invokes the failed Cat Food Commission headed by Bowles and crotchety old geezer Alan Simpson.

In fact, if it were not for President Obama, in full Lazarus mode, repeatedly raising from the dead the failed Cat Food Commission headed by the two barons, Simpson and Bowles would have been cast long ago into history’s garbage dump.

Sadly for these Aesop weavers of economic fables, only a tiny elite still believe the fairy tales. And for these dogmatists, still mesmerized by the Pied Pipers of the Obama Cat Food Commission, the news is just as disheartening.

And so they pray to the gods von Simpson and von Bowles. “Oh, great soothsayers of economic calamity, here our pleadings and bring upon us the deficit doom we so fervently need to support our austerity dogma.”

But, alas, the news is all bad. The deficit is declining.

Stick ’em Up, Yee Lowly Varmint.

Five schools in the Pennsylvania State Higher Education System will allow students to carry guns on campus.

Kutztown, Shippensburg, Edinboro, Slippery Rock and Millersville University have concurred with the advice of an attorney that prohibiting guns on campus may be a violation of the state’s constitution.

In keeping with this advice the schools are instituting a Billy the Kid Curriculum to teach students when and how to use firearms, the art of the quick draw and rigging a holster to win in a shootout. Proper dueling etiquette will be a required three credit course for students who wish to complete the degree.

According to an administration official, the goal of the program will be to teach students how to survive in a fully armed society.

Jumping On The IRS.

Sarah Palin, the sage who can see Russia from her front porch if she stands on her tippy, tippy toes (well, she does live in Alaska and it’s only a hop, skip and a very cold swim across the Bering Strait to Siberia so maybe on a clear day, who knows) has accused the IRS of scrutinizing the affairs of right wing think tanks (oxymoron alert) in an effort to help President Obama get reelected.

sarah

Do you think my mouth is too big?

Not that Obama needed a whole lot of help to defeat the incredibly forgettable Mr. 47% what’s his name. Nevertheless, the IRS did check out groups whose names contained the words “tea party” or “patriot.”

It should all come to naught though. You see, tax laws are so rigged that almost any political group that supports one of the two major parties can get a tax exemption on a crooked politicians say so. And you know how many of those there are in Follyland alone.

Anyway, last year’s winner of The Schmuckup Prize in Geography for knowing where Africa is located (even though she needed two tries); former Miss Alaska and, if memory serves, a former governor, complained in her Facebook page that her best “tea party” buds were being unfairly treated by the IRS because it audited the organizations.

You’d think they were members of the 99% who, in case you’re wondering, are subjected to most of the audit notices.

The solution to this non-problem: Tax political contributions.

Bachmann Calls For Day Of Prayer.

Michele Bachmann called for a National Day of Prayer and Fasting to commemorate the 9/11 attacks and the Benghazi affair, which also occurred on 9/11.

Guess Michele isn’t getting much face time in the news these days. She must be suffering from Bachmann Attention Deficit Syndrome (BADS).

bach

Not to worry.  Michele always has something up her sneaky sleeve.  A good way to rouse up the boys and girls in the corporate media is to call for prayer. That always gets their attention: A nice, safe non-news story splashed around the flat screen and the net can bring a reporter fame and fortune; and Bachmann some desperately needed relief from the BADS.

Not that we really need a day of prayer and fasting.  We can pray any time we want.  And fasting!  McDonald’s would have a canniption (and I’m not talkin’ beer here or pale ale for that matter). I mean no food for a day.  

Holy pepperoni pizza, Batman.  Do we really have to fast for a day to get Michele out of the BADS?

Hang on to your cape, Robin.  Do like me.  I plan to give up liver.

Bacsheesh For Obamacare.

Orrin Hatch is right. Grubbing for bucks to implement Obamacare is absurd.

But that’s exactly what Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is doing: Making phone calls to big business to drum up payola for Obamacare.

kath

Kathleen Sebelius – on the prowl for big spenders.  Meow.

Why any business should ante up is beyond me, except perhaps for some future political payoff. But then they’ve already got that covered.

Let’s face it, businesses don’t want to pay for health care. Health insurance companies don’t want to pay for health care.

Would that they would all get out of the field and leave us to our own devices.

The only thing worse than the current system is no system at all.

Unfortunately Obamacare does little to solve the real crisis in health care, unaffordable costs for all.  And it just keeps getting worse..
