The Conservative Circus Is In Town!

Ringling Brothers is going to stop using elephants, but that's okay - there's a new circus in town with more elephants than you can count. (And we thank the great Facebook Page for many of these great pix, Conservative Clown Car.)

Some people are afraid of clowns and when it comes to Conservative clowns they have good reason to fear them, as we see that there are clowns intruding on our lives like this guy...

...but he's not the only one tumbling out of the car!

"The CPAC conference was a plethora of comedy gold for reasonable people who like what Republicans would call “unreasonable” things.  Things like gun safety legislation, fair tax rates, income equality, a greener planet and equal rights for everyone.

"The field of GOP clowns who will likely make a run at the White House in 2016 is narrowing.  A CPAC straw poll shows the ten front-runners and what kind of support they currently have:

"As a reminder of just how ridiculous each and every one of these prospective candidates is, here’s a quote, made famous by each, that should be shared with your conservative friends and of course, crazy Uncle Rudy over Sunday dinner:

“Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so” – Rand Paul 
“If I can take on a hundred thousand protesters, I can do the same across the world” – Scott Walker, speaking about the ISIS threat 
“We need a much better understanding of the climate before making policy choices that would impose substantial economic costs on our Nation.” – Ted Cruz 
“ObamaCare is the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. In a way, it is slavery, because it is making all of us subservient to the government.” – Ben Carson 
“(Immigrants) are more fertile- and they love families!” – Jeb Bush 
“I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created — in the sense of rape — but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you… rape victims should make the best of a bad situation.” – Rick Santorum 
“Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to answer that. It’s one of the great mysteries.” – Marco Rubio 
“I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful.” – Donald Trump 
“I ran Hewlitt-Packard!” – Carly Fiorina, forgetting that under her watch the company lost half its value and laid off 28,000 workers 
“You know, something may be going down tonight, but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart.” – Chris Christie

"This is, unfortunately for the GOP, the best they have to offer.  With an accumulated IQ of 53 and more experience with lobbyists than foreign policy, the Republican field of dreams is turning out to be more like a toddler’s sandbox."

Can you recognize any of these Conservative clowns?

Here's one of the funniest Conservative clowns in town...

...and he's almost as comical as this guy.

It's so funny when Conservative clowns pretend to be dumb...

Here's a quick snapshot of how the Con Clowns govern...

...and here's how they break us up by looking sad!

"House Speaker and professional Tard the Cat look-a-like John Boehner shot orange soda all over the place when he pouted about President Obama’s promised veto of the environmentally devastating (and nil job creating) Keystone Xl Pipeline.

"Following through on a promise, President Obama swiftly vetoed the Republican bill approving the Keystone XL oil pipeline, essentially killing the project for an extended period of time.

"'Through this bill, the United States Congress attempts to circumvent longstanding and proven processes for determining whether or not building and operating a cross-border pipeline serves the national interest,' President Obama wrote in his veto message. (Reuters)..."

Not all Conservative clowns are in public office, their fans are pretty funny too...

"New report says conservative chumps sent $50 million to right-wing ‘scam’ groups like SarahPAC."

"Conservatives are finally starting to notice that sham activist groups are ripping off Republican donors, after dismissing “liberal” reports about the scams.

"Jonah Goldberg, the syndicated columnist and National Review Online blogger, points to a report on Rightwing News, which commissioned a study of 17 'big name conservative groups.'

"Many of those groups have already been identified as sleazy in numerous reports, but the conservative website admits many of those were likely shrugged off by GOP donors and activists.

"'The problem with the articles that have come out so far is that most of them have come from liberal outlets and have only discussed limited aspects of a few organizations,' wrote John Hawkins, of Rightwing News. 'That naturally led people to wonder if they were reading hit pieces.'

"The 170-page report showed the vast majority of money spent last year by prominent conservative political action committees was 'siphoned off to vendors, wasted, and just plain old pocketed by people in these PACs.'

"Two Super PACs – Tea Party Army and Republicans for Immigration Reform – gave no money at all to candidates through independent expenditures or direct contributions, the study found..."

"Eight other groups – including The National Draft Ben Carson for President, Tea Party Express, SarahPAC, and Tea Party Patriots – gave less than 10 percent of their expenditures to candidates..."

But the truth is that the problem with these clowns is that they're DANGEROUS...

...very dangerous...

...especially when they're in power...

...because they can obstruct everything that's good for their country.

So we need to remove the elephants from our politics too, before the whole country becomes a Conservative circus.

Circus Clown Headquarters
It's too easy to make fun of Conservatives until we realize that their clownishness is just a cover for their criminality.

Conservatives can be clowns, but their raison de etre is to steal and destroy to achieve their Grand Plan of creating the New American Age of Feudalism.

Shouldn't we have laws against this?
