We're Going to Miss Them in December....

The 2016 presidential campaigns--the gift that just keep giving!


NBC's Chuck Todd commented on the last Republican debate (last night's debate has been called a lot of things, mainly "disgusting"), in which Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio traded juvenile insults: "Everything but a Yo Momma joke." He said he couldn't picture any of these men taking the oath of office for the Presidency.

Neither can I.

Just days before, Donald Trump received an endorsement from former rival Chris Christie. Was anybody surprised by this? Come on...they had a private meeting just before Christie suspended his own bid for the Oval Office. I'm guessing a deal was made in the course of that meeting.


Yep...if Trump loses, the pair are heading for Hollywood to do a reboot of Dumb and Dumber!

Then there was this work of art that appeared on Facebook, originally posted by Steve Bannos...


Some things just can't be unseen....


One Facebook poster asked this question. I shared it and got some interesting responses...


And then there are the candidates' action figures. Here's Bernie Sanders, complete with wagging finger. Very popular with young voters.


And the Hillary Clinton action figure. I'm pretty sure there's a dominatrix getup under that boring blue pantsuit.



Doesn't she look like she just tied someone to the railroad tracks? If she had a mustache, she'd twirl it! She reminds me of another politician from a galaxy far, far away....

  
Below is the Donald Trump action figure. It comes with an inflatable ego. Be careful not to overinflate it, or his head will explode!


Here's Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. They can go on like this forever.


I really thought this was the Ben Carson action figure. Honest mistake. Isn't he usually in a fog?



Friends, we have eight more months of this ahead. Then we get to live with the mistakes we make at the polls. What's that saying? We get the government we deserve....

Where is Deez Nuts when  we need him?

    1. So would his fellow Republicans, if last night's debate is any indication. I hear it was a real pissing contest.

  2. There was a time people would act normal in public. Guess those days are gone. :)

    1. I didn't see last night's debate, but it's all over TV this morning. They seem to have sunk to a new low. They don't need moderators, then need referees!

  3. Yep. Just when you think politics can't get more infuriating, up pops another election year. On the bright side, if Trump wins, Miley Cyrus says she's leaving the country.

    1. I saw a post about that on Facebook! Suddenly, a lot of people are willing to vote for Trump if it makes Miley go away.

  4. I've seen the Bernie Sanders tat--seriously! Some gal had it on her ankle (and I said, she does know that's going to be with her until the day she dies)
    I've seen a great analogy of Trump and Christie as Col. Klink and Schultz.
    If we can find something to laugh at for now, I guess we can get through the next several months, but it's as you said, whoever winds up in the oval office, we may be kicking ourselves for voting them in.

    1. I don't think I'd ever get a tattoo. I'd be afraid I'd change my mind about it and it would be too difficult (and painful) to get rid of it.

      Okay, I did consider, briefly, getting a tiny Minion on my shoulder. Or maybe my birds.

  5. Like I said I should really run for president. Running on a month long yelling election, like in Japan then it is all over. That is my platform. I would win hands down. Plus thehamish is my running mate.
    But really what the hell happened last night ?
    The USA is divided into two camps The liberal east and west coast and the rest of us. When Hillary's plane flew over the midwest 8 years ago, what the news people heard them talk about how great they could fly over "them" and not be down there with the rabble they were laughing. Fu*k we rabble middle class pay the bills ! What is left of us.
    Trump has said what a lot of us rabble have been saying. Stop sending jobs overseas, build the wall, no more anchor babies and drug babies welfare handouts. Things the dwindling middle class pays for and worries about.
    But coming out of Trump's mouth makes it all so sleezy.
    And Hillary is not much better. Did you hear her speech to S. Carolina ? Everything thing out of her month was what she was going to give the Black community but nowhere was there any words of their responsibility.
    I have already sent in my vote Not for Hillary, she has morfed into a good old boy bubba Bill. But by the time Arizona has a primary my vote will be casted for nothing, Hillary has it locked up all with all the super delegates she has locked up. My (and your) vote does not count at all. She started out the primaries with over 300 super delegates. There goes the one vote count.
    I am looking into moving back to Japan.

    1. I'd vote for a Gayle/Hamish ticket anytime!

      I don't think our votes really count. Hillary had a lot of superdelegates going in. Even in New Hampshire, where Sanders trounced her, she got half of the delegates anyway.

      The DNC is trying to force her on us, while the GOP is trying to get rid of Trump.

  6. Eight more months!!! I'd vote for any candidate who promises to cut campaign times down to eight weeks!

    1. One of the advantages of living in Canada- campaigns are just a few weeks long, as opposed to the next campaign starting the day after the election with "so who are we looking at in 2020?"

    1. It is pretty awful, isn't it?

  8. Don't ever think your vote doesn't count, it does, use it wisely. I know Miley Cyrus is a pain in the proverbial, but she's definitely not worth voting the Trump in to get rid of her.. yeh I know you were only joking but it's beginning to scare me now. I can't believe Trump hasn't been laughed out of the arena by now.

    1. Most of the pundits thought once the amusement factor wore off, he'd drop in the polls--but the people are so fed up with the established politicians, they'd vote for anybody who offered them another option.

  9. They are scary. I really liked Ben Carson. Nice man. Maybe someone with integrity.

    1. Integrity in politics is as difficult to find as the Holy Grail, Shelly.
