Don’t you think there should be an Olympics for Politicians so they can be awarded medals for their athletic events? Games where they don’t have to follow the rules or play nice with others? They do it every day not just every four years. Although every four years comes the biggest, and most rigged game of all – The Very Special Presidential Olympics er Elections. Go tribe!
Some are so good at what they do it’s amazing. Not particularly good for the country but their ability, some of them for a lifetime, to live off the public while pretending it is public service is awesome. Awesome also is that they manage to convince slow-witted voters that they will keep at least some of their promises. They don’t of course but the public will vote them back into office 91% of the time. That should rate at least a 10 in Olympic flim-flummery.
Politicians even have their own Olympic Villages in Washington D.C. We provide the person with the Most Gold Medals aka votes, POTUS, with housing for him/her and their family for anywhere from 4 to 8 years. The position has benefits that are stunning. Complete with security, better than Rio I’m betting, and their own private Chefs, servants, a helicopter and Air Force One. Not to mention vacations galore. And a whole lot of time on the golf course – All paid for by the American Taxpayer. Olympic Athletes eat your heart out.
The Olympic event of shot put throwing is nothing to the amount of bull a politician can throw. They do it nearly non-stop. They do it daily – yearly – life long. It must be exhausting. Unfortunately the only muscle it builds is between the ears.
Most politicians are good at throwing the bull but some are superlative. Obama
lies, oops throws the bull when there is no need to do it. I’d call him a free-thrower.
Hillary is also a champion bull thrower but she usually needs to throw it to cover up something she’s done that she shouldn’t have done and wants to hide. If there was an Olympic event for Hide and seek she’d be great at the hiding her crime and at seeking a high office she isn’t qualified for, doesn’t deserve and wouldn’t have a chance in hell of achieving if there a person of quality willing to run against her.
Running is something else politicians are good at. Running for office – running their mouth and many seem to think they are qualified to run other people’s lives. They are also very good at running away from the consequences of what they inflict on us. Imagine, Obama is still, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, bragging about ObamaCare. Liar or delusional? Does it matter which?
Gymnastics are always a favorite at the Olympics. Also popular with politicians. I’m conflicted between thinking politicians are better at gymnastics or boxing. They can bob and weave like a boxer and twist and turn and tumble like a gymnast. As Gymnasts they can balance somewhere between the truth and a lie so skillfully they must almost fool themselves at times. They spend more time on a balance beam than most gymnasts.
I think of boxing when thinking of politicians because of all the punches they throw at their opponents. Of course real boxers are penalized for low blows whereas politicians are frequently elected because of them.
Low blows were always permitted in politics but never in my lifetime but I’ve never seen as many or as low as I do lately. Maybe politicians are less like boxers than limbo dancers. Do they have a limbo event in the Summer Olympics? Probably not even in Rio.
Politicians like the swimming events too. Especially the freestyle events. Nothing a politician likes more than free stuff. Free stuff he takes from the workers to buy votes from the shirkers.
Politicians prefer to be freestyle swimmers because Freestyle means that they don’t have to play by the rules or obey the laws like the rest of us. They may get in the deep end of the pool without their water wings from time to time but they can count on the DOJ or the FBI to save them.
Let’s see, what other Olympic Event would a politician be good at? Archery? I don’t think so – arrows must be straight and true or they don’t go anywhere. Not so politicians. The more dishonest they are the further they go it seems. Some of the old crooks have been parasites on the public for a life time. Not archery – knife in the back is more their style.
Some do remind me a little bit of Fencers as they do an interview with some rare media type that actually asks them tough questions and then follows up. Most aren’t good at this, especially Democrats, as they don’t encounter a real reporter often. Not surprising – there aren’t many real reporters.
There are many more Olympic Events that we could think of in connection with politicians. Equestrian events only bring the south end of a north bound horse so that won’t do. Oh well, maybe I’ll think of something more later. But quite honestly, I’d rather not think of Politicians at all. Too bad they don’t/won’t all just go away.
And last but not least, congratulations to Gold Medal Winner Virginia Thrasher.
