Olympics For Politicians *Open Thread*

by

 

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 – Image result for cartoon golfer imageAll 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.

American teenager Ginny Thrasher won the first gold medal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro for the 10-meter air rifle event. And the gun grabbers seethed. The latest liberal event.

    great column. it would be interesting to watch but we need more than two teams to compete. More parties needed.

    this may sound weird, but maybe the public should start paying more attention to who is running for vice president for the dems and also look real closely at Huma. If Hillary’s heath is so bad who will run the country if she wins?

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      If Hillary is really ill and this isn’t just some Drudge fantasy – will Huma be Hillary’s Valerie Jarrett? Another unelected Nightstalker running the country?

      And how classy from the spousal side of things – Bill Clinton and Anthony Weiner in the White House. A fiction writer would never attempt such a script because it seems so fantastical. Such is life.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      This crap is outrageous! Why should we pay for someone else’s kid to go to college when most of us cannot afford to send our own?

      Great way to send these people into life with an idea that what they owe will be paid by someone else.

      IMO if the do not pay what they owe they are freeloading parasites.

      I don’t know the percentage but a good share of them weren’t smart enough to get an education in something that will provide them a living. Thus many college grads will end up as a Barista at Starbucks hating the world and blaming that world for their stupid choices.

      Nothing wrong with being a Barista at Starbucks before or during your college years. Sad if it’s after.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        That’s what I would like to know. It i absurd that these kids and parents choose schools they cannot afford then expect other people to pick up the tab! Maybe instead of expecting US to pick up the tab, these universities could actually use the taxpayer dollars we give them to REDUCE costs instead of constantly expanding costs?! Just a thought…

    • piper Says:

      My question – what are the republicans doing about this latest outrage from the administration. Rolling over on their backs hoping the constant whining will satisfy their constituents so they’ll continue voting for them. Just talking and whining with no ACTION which tells me that most of the republicans are really like their democrat peers.

      By the time Comey gets to it – he’ll find they just don’t have enough to prosecute. The FBI has proved they are as corrupt as the State Department, the DOJ and the EPA.

    Haven’t had an opportunity to watch much of anything (kid’s getting married next week). I will tell you that I am horrified by the awful accidents that some of these athletes have had. The guy with the broken leg was the most gruesome, but the Norwegian female biker flying over her handle bars and landing in a ditch with her neck twisted scared me to death.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Congratulations on the upcoming wedding! How wonderful!

      Yeah, both of those were just terrible. The cycling course has proven to be VERY dangerous. So many things wrong with choosing a country based more on politics (or so it seems to me) than on its ability to provide a quality venue for such an important sporting event…

      • mcnorman Says:

        Third world politics usually means lots and lots of overt corruption. Much of the money will never trickle down. It’s just the way that it is.

      Given that the left owns the courts, mostly, I suspect nothing. Since they also own the media it probably won’t even be reported much.

    Constitution’s Reception at a Trump Rally

    So far as I can ascertain the people ejected did nothing but hold up the Constitution. Were they liberals? Does it matter?

    Are you ejected from a Republican rally for holding up the Constitution no matter who you are? And then chant USA like mindless fools/tools.

    I don’t know who these people are but they certainly aren’t the Republican voters I’ve always known.
