Saddle up for obstruction

I got an email message today from Schrader the Traitor, asking for money so that he can keep his seat in Congress and continue playing Manchin. Before sending it to the e-round file, I did stop and admire his amusing campaign logo:

Of course, it's anatomically incorrect. He's got the wrong end of the horse.


  1. Wrong end of the horse, indeed!!! I hope the 5th District people send this DINO back to his veterinary practice FT.

    1. Don't kid yourself;
      once you do your time on the taxpayer dime as an otherwise unemployable 'Tommy Boy'(esque) failguy/gal in US-congress, fail-upward opportunities abound:
      -Become a Lobbyist for big $.
      -Get on a board of an NGO or 'Institute'
      -Get on the conference circuit w/ $$$/plate speaking gigs

      Transitioning into more of the Dem do-gooder brand/additional options \/:
      -Write/have a (or a bunch of books *cough* Obama *cough*) book that you promote.
      -Write a terrible play or curriculum we won't be shut of for several years, somehow?
      -Write annoying think pieces/modern day moral equivalents of blogs. but worse?

      Presumably these make up for you being a sellout/not actually doing much to help anyone/being forgotten or not remembered fondly by history, actually maybe being *dimly* able to write, &/or not as able to just go directly for the big $/power options & skipping all the do-gooder stuff the way more outright republican types do?

      But yea, go back to being a Vet/local chain of Vet businesses in boom times for them (tho Banfield Vet. has bought up everything they can in major cities & price gouged/cut services accordingly?).

      Senators (& above), I sort of think of as some of the most crooked &/or established evil guys "in" (if they bother to come back home to their state of origin?) a given state now, congressional reps are mostly dopes &/or ineffectual &/or get their gov. benefits/inside track to lead a cushy life thereafter once they are out of office at the end of a given short 2 year term?

      Schrader's an interesting one?
      He's neither a total dope, not totally unemployable (tho maybe was about to get sued for malpractice or lazy? LOL), but not a young fresh blood republican killer in the shark tank, either?
      Presumably he's hanging onto the gig a bit harder as he doesn't have it *quite* as juicy as either the vocal do-gooders/virtue signalers nor the more business acumen young sharp shark tank republican killers?

The platform used for this blog is awfully wonky when it comes to comments. It may work for you, it may not. It's a Google thing, and beyond my control. Apologies if you can't get through. You can email me a comment at, and if it's appropriate, I can post it here for you.
