Friday Nite Lite: The “After” Party

Good Friday Evening…time for the funnies!

Let’s start with a couple of non-cartoons funnies first. I have seen people posting things like this on Facebook since Wednesday: Little Green Footballs – Hilariously Crazed Wingnut Rant of the Day


Today, I instructed my wife to prepare for post Obama election by doing the following:

1. Close out our bank accounts, checking accounts, savings account.

2. Eliminate and exist from all medical service programs, insurance, and destroy all medical records and ID numbers.

3. Destroy and toss all cell phones.

4. Take out and smash all black boxes in our vehicles. Will put on the road my 69 mustaang.

5. Cut up all credit cards and call to stop all transactions.

6. Call and stop propane gas shipments, will now burn firewood. Already have more than 500 cord stacked as a backup.

7. Buy only the bare necessaities and pay all bills with a money order.

8. Plan all travel areas, use back roads to avoid TSA agents.

9. Do not use landline telephone only in an emergency.

10. Call and turn off Direct TV.

11. End all computer web services.

12. Build a gate at the end of our driveway and keep it locked. Inform all friends and relatives to call first prior to a visit so the gate can be unlocked.

13. Get involved more heavily with local Tea Party to establish a third party, no more money to the GOP under any circumstance!

The list may be updated to include other more secret actions that the government need not know about here!

I hope he remembered to instruct wifey to lay in a supply of toilet paper. It’s the little things that matter most in a sealed bunker.

As for the GOP themselves? They are reaching out in desperation as well: Republicans Consider Welcoming People Who Believe in Math and Science : The New Yorker

According to Borowitz…

Opting for a bold “big tent” strategy to rebuild the party, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, told reporters today, “We need to welcome people who believe in different things than we do, like math and science.”

After disappointing results in Tuesday’s election, Mr. Priebus said that it was time for Republicans to become “more tolerant of those with a math-and-science lifestyle.”

“Just because we don’t believe in those things doesn’t mean we can’t get along with people who do,” he said. “We want to send this message: math and science Americans are Americans, too.”

In the biggest departure from its previous electoral strategy, Mr. Priebus said, the Republican Party is “even considering trying to appeal to women.”

“I read recently that women are as much as fifty-one per cent of the population,” he said. “That number sounded crazy high to me, but maybe one of our new math Republicans can check on it for us.”

And on with the show…

  1. Watching Network and loving it! What are you all doing tonight?

    • bostonboomer says:

      I think I’m coming down with a cold or something, unfortunately.

      Thanks for the cartoons. I love the “bubble” one.

  2. I did have one link to share with you, with my spinning and weaving background…I thought this picture of a hopping sheep was cute.

  3. ecocatwoman says:

    I can’t pick a favorite cartoon. They are all so good.

    Loved the New Yorker piece. Problem is, since gawd didn’t create math & science & it isn’t in the bible, then it doesn’t exist.

  4. NW Luna says:

    Great ‘toons; you have a knack for picking them. We all need healthy doses of laughter to make up for all that election pressure.

    Heheh — I read the story on Tammy Baldwin & Johnson “explaining” budget math (that pdgrey linked to on an earlier post), and this caught my eye:

    Popular Vote
    Obama: 61,349,079 votes / 50.5%
    Romney: 58,262,553 votes / 47.9%

    Romney got 47%!

  5. RalphB says:

    We can always count on some members of the Texas Taliban to be completely batshit insane. It just never fails.

    TPM: Texas Republican Wants State To Leave U.S. Over Obama Win

    • Geez, why don’t these people get put in jail for treason? Along with Grover too.

    • socalannie says:

      I was going to comment that I heard a lot of Californians say the same thing during the Bush years, then I read the link and scrolled down to the comments, and there is a long, funny one about California leaving and taking the other blue states with it. Good for a laugh if you have a few minutes. It had some funny responses also.

      • Fannie says:

        I actually know of a couple republican families going to Texas to “check it out”…………they are of the type that started conversations with me stating “they needed to straighten me out”………….ha ha. Can’t go soon enough………..go.

    A First Look at Second Term Obama

    We got our first look today at Second Term Obama and – shock – he did not reveal himself as a Kenyan socialist eager to pillage the economy.

    In the East Room of the White House, he was the same centrist Democrat he has always been – only a little tougher sounding.

    Mr. Obama said he was open to negotiation, compromise and “new ideas.” But then he made it clear that he would not sign a deficit agreement that does not raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans.

  7. pdgrey says:

    JJ, you always find the best cartoons! Here is a link to two political satirists Lester & Charlie. Read down to get to the funny poll “What do YOU think a President Romney REALLY would have done on his first day in office”?

    Also in that same article a link about Romney’s concession speech.

  8. pdgrey says:

    David Letterman’s “In Memoriam” mitt Romney.

  9. apishapa says:

    500 cords of wood. Are you shittin’ me? I lived in Montana for years. It was COLD. We never used more than 6 cords of wood a year. At about $125 a cord (that’s conservative) this guy has $50000 + of wood laying around? What a load of crap. I honestly didn’t get past that point except that he cut off all his utilities and phones and found a way to sneak online anyway.

    “Well, it’s over, and as usual, the guy from Kenya won.”
    —David Letterman

    “Exit polls show that President Obama did well with women, beating Romney by 11 binders.”
    —Jay Leno

    “Of the nine key swing states, Obama won eight! I mean, how??? Even in Pennsylvania, despite the fact that after a week of hurricane Sandy, thousands of Amish remain without power!”
    —Stephen Colbert

    “Florida tonight remains too close to call. So where’s the good news, you say? Here it is: the election was decided without them. For once, Florida’s clusterfuckery is irrelevant.”
    —Jon Stewart

    “I always wonder what the day after the election is like for the candidate who loses. You get so close to becoming the most powerful person in the world and just like that, you wake up hoping to get a call from Dancing With the Stars.”
    —Jimmy Kimmel

    “Last night Colorado became the first state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. They just renamed their NBA team the Denver McNuggets.”
    —Jimmy Fallon

    Really Great Cartoons JJ….As for the bug out/in list of the Prepper. He’s a friggin nutcase. That guy could wouldn’t survive 24 hours without the ability to bitch and have severe attacks of paranoia via the internet.

    I wish all the nutbags would go ahead and leave the U.S. for the safety of Mexico. Dumbasses..
