Slim Pickin’s…. (Bloggishnish – Political)

As much as I’d like this blog entry to be about one of my favorite big-screen cowboys — Slim Pickens — (aka, Louis Lindley, Jr.)  best remembered for his comic roles as ‘Major Kong’ in Dr. Strangelove and ‘Taggart’ in Blazing Saddles…


It’s not.

Unfortunately, it’s about presidential politics and the sorry state of the GOP who can’t seem to find a candidate with both hands.  Looks like your classic Catch-22: Anyone qualified to be president is smart enough to stay on the sidelines, and those that aren’t qualified aren’t grounded enough to realize they’re not.

I loved Mike Keefe’s Denver Post cartoon from April 10th.. which really summed up my feelings about the GOP wannabes early on…

Keefe’s “clown car” analogy wasn’t lost on Dana Summer from the Orlando Sentinel who recently penned this beauty which, again, resonated a bit.

Ugggg.  Beam me up Scotty, there’s no intelligent life left on this planet (at least within the GOP).


About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
