The DC Folly Trolley – 09/29/13


Prize Announced.

Pasta Fagioli, Italy.

The Nobella Prize Committee announced just moments ago the latest winner of the MVP award.

The newest recipient of the Most Valuable Putz honor is Ted Cruz the notorious senator from the state of Texas.

Cruz won the award for his invention of a speech format known as the non-filibuster. The senator became the first politician to use his new creation while performing a 21 hour monologue in the chamber of that notoriously undemocratic body sometimes referred to as the United States Senate.


The semi-illustrious senator, one Teddy Cruz, from the once great state of Texas.

The Cruz creation, referred to as a non-filibuster, is defined as a diatribe that is not intended to forestall a vote on legislation not before the Senate. As such, such speechifying prevents nothing, accomplishes nothing and is good for nothing. The senator from Texas, most assuredly, can lay claim to being worthy of the prize named for the kind of behavior he so fruitlessly exhibited.

During his one man talk show, the host of the festivities read passages from Green Ham & Eggs by Dr. Seuss, a book that is reportedly a favorite among many Republicans.

Also noteworthy in the talkathon was the fact that Cruz stated unequivocally that he really liked White Castle hamburgers. (So what’s wrong with Steak & Shake).

Oh, I almost forgot. The freshman pol, affectionately known as “Teddy” to his friend in the Senate (yes, he does have one friend but that illuminary has refused to identify himself), mentioned his dislike for Obama’s Obamacare as well.

So, in recognition of his performance before that infamous deliberative institution, the members of the Nobella Prize Committee proudly granted to Sen. Teddy Cruz of Texas the Most Valuable Putz award.


Winners of The Most Valuable Putz Award receive a certificate acknowledging the award as well as a forged autographed copy of a photo of Don Alberto Vito Nobella, the originator of the prize.

These exceptional individuals also receive a statuette named the Pubar which is engraved with the words “Putzed up beyond all reason.” Known as the Putzie, the coveted statuette is sculpted of rusted metal stolen from an auto junk yard.

The Putzie is given while supplies last.  Unfortunately for the current winner supplies just ran out.


Dems Practice Mind Control.

A Colorado politician claimed this week that Democrats in his state are using mind control to force people to accept “homosexual marriage.”

Given that the vast majority of Democrats already accept marriage equality, Kent Lambert must be referring to his fellow Repubs.

It’s hard to accept the “mind control” premise, however. There’s so very little to control.


Mendacity Squared.

If a president of the United States is a lying son of a bitch, is it OK to call him a lying son of a bitch.

Some people would say that we should not refer to a president who is a lying son of a bitch as such out of respect for the office.

However, a president who is a lying son of a bitch obviously has no respect for the office he holds so is there any reason at all why anyone else should respect the office or its occupant

So it’s OK to call anyone who parks his mendacious ass in the Oval Office a lying son of a bitch.

There is one small problem here, however. Can you think of any president who wasn’t a lying son of a bitch?

The most recent three, Obama, Bush and Clinton, certainly earned that sobriquet.


Another representative from the once great state of Texas.

Let’s look at some of the lies told by the present occupant of that once honorable but now defiled office.

Comparing the candidates soaring 2008 campaign speeches with performance, it is obvious that Obama was lying through his teeth during his entire run for office.

Consider just a handful of promises that transformed lofty ideals into the “hopey-changey thing.”

For example, candidate Obama vowed to walk beside union workers in picket lines.

So where was “President” Obama when Gov. Scott Walker and his henchmen in the legislature and the courts of Wisconsin demeaned public employees who protested in march after march the cuts to earned benefits they suffered under Republican tyranny in that sorrowful state..

From the White House came a telling silence. It seems the president developed a rare and mysterious disease known as BTB syndrome. He must have acquired a blister on his big toe, a condition that apparently recurs during each and every labor protest, that prevents him from fulfilling his promise to stand beside his supporters while they marched against cuts to hard earned benefits.

And during the protracted Occupy Movement, when the president had numerous opportunities to redeem himself, what did we hear from the Oval Office? The same roaring silence as before.

wis protest

The president stayed toasty warm in his White House digs during the Wisconsin protests.


Another of candidate Obama’s peeves was campaign payola. He decried campaign contributions and called the system corrupt in numerous speeches, particularly venting anger at lobbyists. Then, in office, he did nothing except to raise ever more payola than his opponents – nearly $750,000,000 in all.


The public option, remember that. Obama proclaimed his support for one repeatedly.

He then went back on his word. But worse than that, he became the Sneak-In-Chief when he and his henchmen negotiated with drug industry czar Billy Tauzin promising to keep hands off pharmaceutical profits and to block Congressional efforts to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices. He did this in secret meetings in exchange for industry support for Obamacare.

The flim flam was of course exposed and because of Obama’s behind the back wheeling and dealing, Democrats were crushed in the 2010 elections and lost the House. In effect, Obama destroyed Nancy Pelosi’s Speakership and now must contend with an intransigent, mindless Tea Party lower chamber.

Sadly, for this hapless president, he has no one to blame but himself.


As a candidate, Obama promised to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. So what did he do? Continued both for years and actually stepped up the war in Afghanistan with the infusion of thousands of combat troops. Although it must be noted that Obama, to the disbelief of supporters, did indicate that he would commit troops to a “surge” in Afghanistan.

Our military would still be fighting the Bush/Obama wars in both countries if it had not been booted out by the leaders of those ill-treated nations.


Obama accelerated the drone attacks begun by the Bush administration. By all accounts, these sneak attacks kill more innocent people than the terrorists they’re aimed at and engender both bitterness and hatred against the United States in all countries in which they are launched. Polls in Pakistan alone confirm the deep resentment toward America held by people of nations under drone attack.

There are numerous other ways in which candidate Obama backed away from the promises of “hope and change” he proclaimed in his speeches. Read just a handful of them and it will be difficult not to agree that as president, Obama has revealed himself to be nothing more than a ruthless pol who earned his bone fides in the rough and tumble of down and dirty Chicago politics.

Tribal Democrats, who would vote for the devil if he wrapped himself in the Party’s mantle, accept unquestioningly Obama’s performance in office and blow off his mendacity by making excuses for the sharply conservative direction he’s moving the country in.


Excuses for the president’s back stabbing behavior can be logged in the comments section.

Here’s a short list of some excuse makers. You are welcome to add to or join the list.


Get Ready for Hillary.

Tribal Democrats are positively salivating over the possible run for president of former Secretary of State and senator from Wall Street, the one and only Hillary Clinton.

Here’s something to chill the hot drooling: Hillary accepted payola during her campaigns for the Senate from the likes of Rupert Murdock and execs in Wall Street firms who are among her best buddies.

Moreover, her recent performance before the Carlyle Group millionaires club was intended to send the clear message that she’s “ready to play ball in exchange for payola.”

The Carlyle Group is the many tentacled hedge fund engaged in private equity deals similar to Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital.

Her appearance at this benighted group of one percenters reinforces the reality that to win in American politics, you gotta have the geetus. It’s the scratch that runs government in this country and Hillary demonstrated how well she knows that pitiful truth.


Here’s a short video of Barack Obama informing us of what we already know-there are forces conspiring against the middle class. What many don’t know or refuse to admit is that Obama himself is one of those forces. Read only a little about the Trans Pacific Partnership, described as NAFTA on steroids, and realize that the president is a powerful advocate of that nefarious trade scam, and you will agree.
