When did European Despots Become Smarter than American Despots?

A friend recently saw a heavy guy sitting in a “Smart Car” that Obama praised and sort of claimed as his own idea. It appeared as if no one could fit inside with him.  Dumb design, but it appeals to dumb people. And guys wanting a completely enclosed golf cart. You’d probably need to strap your clubs on the roof, but…what the heck? Hitler claimed credit for the Volkswagon. The “car of the people.” Or the “Folkswagon.” The actual designers were pretty clever engineers-designers. But some dumb socialist (NAZI) thought up the mundane name. The inference for me, in comparing the Smart Car and the People’s Car (since both are claimed by petty dictators as their own brainchildren), is the Krauts had a better dictator-designer. The Volkswagon is such a good design that it has been revived and is being  driven by people other than those morons who have nostalgia for the sixties. Hitler was elected, you’ll remember. Ergo, Americans elect less capable/dumber dictators-socialists. And considering the Democratic field of presidential candidates, things aren’t going to improve. (I apologize for the poor drawing of the Smart Car in the cartoon. I didn’t bother looking up a pic of the thing.)

Apparently, Hollywood’s opinion of movie-goers in America is not improving. The Suits in Dummywood are making a movie about some people being stuck in a Twin Towers elevator on 9-11. Whoopi Goldberg and Charlie Sheen are set to “star.” Can you Imagine how horrible it would be getting stuck anywhere with either of those two? Particularly in a close space. Particularly if it is the real Whoopi Goldberg. It would be bad enough having to avoid staring at her shaved forehead. But if she actually has any speaking lines, (with which she may have helped the writers)…without even knowing death is imminent…it would be unimaginably grim. Please…water board me instead. No time limit…and no doctors present like the creeps got at Gitmo or somewhere.

Did you see how some prison guard got a little negligent and allowed a convicted car thief to get into the pen holding the creep who murdered all those innocent movie-goers in Colorado. The same guy who later dyed his hair and beard red-orange (claiming to be Islamic) and was found guilty, but his judge only sentenced him to 20 life sentences. Well…the car guy partially succeeded where the judge utterly failed and beat the red-bearded guy’s face severely. The car guy regretted he didn’t have more time alone with Red before the guards pulled him off.  Ergo, American convicts are smarter and more attuned to justice and equity than American judges. O.K., O.K. … only some convicts are better human beings than some judges.  If a loved one of mine had perished in the Colorado theater, I would bake the car guy a cake every week.

Unfortunately, Princess Kate is going on extended leave from the Royal Family to promote a line of cosmetics. A long time ago I read the Royal family is the richest family in the world. Maybe things have gotten financially rocky in England. Does the Obama Recession reach across the Pond? Maybe.

Obama is not attending the funeral of Ms. “Ray Gun” Ron, the greatest President since Calvin Coolidge. (Who else could have whipped the Evil Empire without firing a shot? Maybe he learned how to bluff while playing poker on the back lots during those “B” westerns he used to appear in.) But how would Obama ever recognize “greatness” in anything? Including the funniest guy ever to be a member of SCOTUS…not to mention one of the greatest jurists, the Honorable Antonin Scalia. Whose funeral Obama also skipped. And how would Obama possibly recognize “honorableness” anywhere? Scalia was also probably the most intelligent jurist on the bench for many decades…and how could Obama possibly recognize “intelligence?”

Did you note the Navy Seals are having trouble requisitioning enough rifles to train with? If the few hundred Seals presently serving (the ones Biden hasn’t gotten killed) (yet) were equipped with the current combat rifle, including high tech scopes, etc., it would cost $1500 per Seal. The total cost to provide rifles to these guys would cost about .00000000000…00000…??? … 000001% of the Navy’s entire budget. We are governed by miscreants.

So…Kraut dictators are smarter and better car designers than American dictators, which is unexpected, but not surprising. Artless Hollywood is completely bankrupt in the idea department, which is widely known.  Some convicts are better at jurisprudence than some judges, which, if you’ve ever been in a courtroom, won’t be terribly surprising. The Royal Family may be taking in washing soon at Buckingham, which is surprising and uninteresting. The Navy is run by persons who do not understand preparedness, cost effectiveness or tactics. Finally, Obama cannot recognize honor, greatness or intelligence, which is neither surprising nor unexpected. Nor are we surprised to note that Hitler is a better car designer than Obama. And you only thought Hitler was a better statesman, strategist, a better dresser, better looking, a better dancer and wittier than Obama. Silly you.

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
