Editorial Cartoon

I had another birthday this past Sunday and if I’d known I was going to live this long I would’ve taken better care of myself. Actually, I should probably forego the beer and pizza and start acting my age, but who’d want to grow old like that? At least I’m not one of those childish Democrats eating Kentucky Fried Chicken during a congressional hearing. Finger-licking goodness that you paid for, no doubt.

In case you didn’t hear, Democrats in Washington have been torn up like a can of kraut ever since the Mueller witch hunt cleared President Trump of wrongdoing. Now they’re coming after the attorney general, calling him a liar for telling the truth. But William Barr is tired of being slandered by crusty old slimeballs with an agenda, so he didn’t show up for a House Judiciary Committee hearing just to be slandered some more. Good for him.

In Barr’s absence, Democrat Steve Cohen, a U.S. Representative from Tennessee, placed a ceramic chicken at Barr’s seat and posed for pictures beside it like a schoolboy showing off his science project. Implying that Barr was too scared to testify, he then proceeded to eat from a bucket of chicken. Well, hardy har har. I’ve not seen zany shenanigans like that out of a 70-year-old man since Caddyshack.

Are you noticing how the bunch that gets off on calling our President a dumb child are the same people playing with ceramic chickens? When is the last time you heard a Washington Democrat speak of anything that resembles responsible governing? It’s absolutely pathetic. I heard some goofy Democrat on the radio responding to a pointed question as to what they’d actually accomplished as of late and she replied something to the tune of “we passed a bill to make Election Day a national holiday.” Well slap my ass and call me Sally.

The unemployment rate is at its lowest since 1969 and job creation continues to well exceed predictions. First quarter GDP is a full percentage point beyond expectations and the stock market is setting records. All the while Washington Democrats are preoccupied with Russia and impeaching our president. 

Thank God there’s enough Democrats elsewhere who act like grown-ups, the Democrats who helped elect Trump and will vote for him again. 

I hope to live a long time, but I may never grow up. 

I don’t have to — federal tax dollars don’t pay my salary. But Democrats in Congress shouldn’t be allowed the same prerogative. If they’re going to play silly politics with ceramic chickens, they need to do it on their own dime. Or grow the hell up.

I’m still waiting on one Democrat to walk up to me and say that they’re actually proud of their fellow Dems in Washington. 

And in the meantime, I’m trying to figure out exactly who’s voting for these idiots. I fear I’ll be dead and gone long before either one happens.
