Wednesday Reads: Getting Medieval on the GOP’s Ass!

015869e914b4837726f0e88eeec3b043e2fb7bdbadHey Y’all

I could not bear to write a post today. So just take this one for what it is, my overzealous attempt to find a few Medieval images for the thread that reminded me of the GOP idiots who are running or announcing that they are running for Prez…in 2016. I was looking and next thing I know it is four am…go figure.

So, I decided to post the illuminations, manuscripts,  marginalia, bestiary, cheeky monkeys and the like with my own various commentary. Most of which will call back to the clowns that Boston Boomer and Dakinikat have been talking about lately. The images below are found here:

and here:  Pinterest: Getting Medieval On Your Ass


So the captions within the slide show are just my observations. Click on the links above for the information on the links.

Just a few that are beyond the scope of the political references that are the theme of the post today.



This reminds me of the Seinfeld episode with the marbled rye…“Seinfeld” The Rye (TV Episode 1996) – IMDb it airs tomorrow by the way on TBS.


The next image is also from a Seinfeld episode.



Little Jerry was born to cock fight! “Seinfeld” The Little Jerry (TV Episode 1997) – IMDb



Little Jerry is lean, mean, peckin’ machine!





Okay, now for the slide show…click on the first picture below, it should open up to the larger gallery slide show….if you cannot read the full caption under the image, use the down arrow on your keyboard, it should work to move the text so you can read the entire entry.



This is an open thread.

      Damn JJ, that was sooooo good. Mother Tucker you covered it all. I nominate you for the best show and tell evah, and want to see it go on tour, like I’m for a Washington D.C. tour. I can tell how you had to deal with this all night, it’s outta the park.

      It all came to life, thank you JJ for your brilliant work.

    To make your point on hypocrisy

    Josh Duggar ‘was subject of molestation claims in 2005 and was turned in by his father Jim Bob’

    Don’t forget Ted Cruz in the next batch

    In the meantime

    Thought y’all might want to know what the He-man-woman-haters club has to say about The Notorious RBG

    Watch as the Supreme Court justice TOTALLY DESTROYS the rule of law.

    If he hated RBG anymore it would kill him.

      I wonder if he was upset when Scalia went duck hunting with Dick Cheney while he was hearing a case involving Halliburton?

      • bostonboomer says:

        And Scalia and Thomas going to Koch brothers events and donating to right wing causes?

  7. Johnny Guitar is on TCM right now…fucking awesome.

  8. This: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal Legalizes LGBTQ Discrimination

    Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) issued an executive order Tuesday that legalizes religious discrimination against the state’s LGBTQ community.

    The executive action is in response to the failure of the GOP-majority state legislature to pass the so-called Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act, which would codify discrimination of LGBTQ people by those who oppose marriage equality.

    HB 707, sponsored by Rep. Mike Johnson (R-Bossier City), would have prohibited the state from taking action against a person, organization, or business if they acted in accordance with a religious belief or moral conviction about marriage.

    The House Civil Law Committee voted 10-2 Tuesday to effectively kill the bill through a procedural move.

    “There’s never a convenient time to stand up for liberty,” Johnson said after the bill’s defeat in committee, according to the New Orleans Advocate. “This issue’s not going away, though.”

    As in Indiana and Arkansas, Louisiana faced a backlash against the legislation from LGBTQ advocates and those in the business community who warned the anti-gay policy would be bad for the bottom line.

    Stephen Perry, the President and CEO of the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, told the Associated Press that the bill would make the state “complicit in officially state-sanctioned bigotry” and hurt the state’s economy to the tune of $65 million per year.

    “We’re attempting to … carve out the ability to discriminate, the ability to be bigoted,” Perry said.

      I heard that New York was going to ban travel to Louisiana. I hope they close down the movie making business there.
