Funnier Than ’08?

Posted: July 17, 2015 by veeshir in Funniest End of Civilization Evah

As I’ve said, I think this election is going to be funnier than ’08, unfortunately, it’s going to be endier as well.

In past elections, the GOP candidates tried to sell themselves to the GOP electorate and then “tacked to the center” for the general election, this year the candidates vying for the GOP nomination, except for the unserious, huckster one, are busy trashing the GOP electorate before…. I’m not sure where they can go from there. Maybe finally merge the parties into the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party? The Unity Party, ala Jerry Pournelle’s dystopian future? Converting to Islam and making gay marriage (as well as being gay) illegal? Geez, I can’t even think of anything ridiculous enough to match what’s surely going to be reality.

Hmmm, maybe Trump wins the GOP nomination so Bush runs as an Independent and we’re told to vote for Jeb in order to be true Republicans? I’m rooting for that one to tell you the truth.


Now we have people saying we need armed guards to protect Marines.

That’s right, we need Paul Blart to protect to protect Camp Pendleton from armed jihadis. C’mon, you have to admit that’s funny….. in a horrible way perhaps, but still pretty funny.


Next up, we have the Socialist Bernie Sanders, doing very well in the race for the nomination for the totally-not-socialist Dem party, doing this

Mark Steyn writes

As readers may know, the Steyn worldwide corporate headquarters is located in Woodsville, which is part of the township of Haverhill, New Hampshire…..

Bernie Sanders says (warning, minitrue link)

…Mark Steyn’s “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon”:…

the authors don’t understand place and have probably never been to an American place they were inclined to stay in. They would get a rash in real places like Tobaccoville, N.C., Haverhill, N.H. or Luckenbach, Texas,


That’s all about teh funny.  I mean, the odds against actually picking the town where one of the people he’s attacking lives have to be in the thousands (hundreds of thousands? Milions?) to one against.

Do I have a point? Not really, I’m just pointing and laughing.

And cringing, but at least there’s laughter.

30 seconds later update!!!!!

Read the comments, hilarious. Like this one

Steyn lives in Haverhill, as has been pointed out multiple times. Luckenbach, Texas is a staged ghost town that hosts country music concerts. Nobody actually lives there. Oh, and Waylon Jennings isn’t hanging out anywhere; he died in 2002. But other than that, your article is fantastic.


If you want a more sober assessment, one that harshes your mellow, click Cold Fury here, where I saw this, or Steyn above.

I’m just going to put a slug of coffee in my whiskey and enjoy the day.
