Who Wants My Money Now?

Sometime last year I started getting emails from the Washington Times.  For those of you not currently or previously drowning in politics (lucky you!), the Washington Times is a right wing rag — Fox News in black and white (and read all over) by conservatives in Washington (and probably nowhere else — it’s a really rag and not in a good way).

Since I didn’t unsubscribe for a while (the emails are hilarious in a frightening way), I am also on a bunch of other lists.  And just yesterday, I got this:

Oh Boy Howdy!  I can work long and hard to support a crazy man from Texas!  Yee-Haw!  (My photo of Ted's email -- eat your heart out, Google Images)

(My photo of Ted’s email — eat your heart out, Google Images)

Ooh Boy Howdy! I can work long and hard to support a crazy man from Texas! Yee-Haw!

OK, back to reality.  You won’t be surprised that I didn’t send Ted my hard earned money, unless you have just clicked on this blog for the first time.

But I did respond to Ted.  With this:


Because I’m pretty sure that this one picture is worth a thousand words.  Or dollars — Confederate or U.S.

I clipped the photo montage from my friend, Father Kane, at The Last of the Millenniums, where I get so many great pictures.

    Why, do you have too much? (money?)

    I am sorry I am so uninformed to be able to poke fun with y’all. Mad magazine game had money too. I think there was a billion dollar bill with Alfred E Newman’s picture on it. Based on Monopoly, but the object is to lose all your money. fun game.


  2. Surely your heart must go out to the poor man – if he doesn’t receive these funds, he won’t meet the 2-week interim goal that he set! I get teary just thinking about it!

  3. You should just give your money to me…


  4. My dad was a lifelong registered Republican, although during my years of political awareness he has tended to vote Democrat more often than not. He switched registration a few years ago, finally having given up on the Grand Ol’ Party. But while he was so registered, we had a good time reading some of the stuff he got in the mail.

    I can’t imagine what it must be like now with the loonies that have taken over the party.

  5. My wife called from the other room and wants to know why I’m laughing so hard. I can’t wait to show this to her. You should have stuffed an envelope full of Monopoly money and mailed it in. Oh, it’s going to be a glorious campaign season.

  6. I am on the floor!!!! Best response E V A H to a WRONG freaking number…I’m still laughing at the photo … it’s so perfect.


    • Well, I will admit to adding something to the photo. A line that said: “I do not donate to assholes.” Because I’m sure lots of his donors would love, love, love to have tricky dick back. (Come to think of it, I’d prefer Nixon over any of these Bozos.)


  7. I am laughing down the inside of my thighs. Thank you for that one. Gad, you get letters from Ted, how fortunate for you. You get to keep up with him. I on the other hand, despite being a Texan (of longer heritage than him by the way), am blocked from his Facebook page and other social media sites of his, do you think it was something I said?


  8. I have some Canadian Tire money..

  9. Well, if 1 picture is worth 1,000 words, these 3 pictures have to be worth the price of admission to one of his desperate fund raisers–just for more blog material, mind you…Of course, you might have to pledge allegiance to some cray-cray notions about the second amendment and freedom (but only if he can control you).

  11. I’m donating all my millions of Monopoly money to Ted. Trust me, it’s just as real as Ted’s facts.

    I don’t get the emails, I just get the actual mail. Red county in lilac state. i may have to highlight some of the “best of” in a future post, thx for the idea!

    That photo equation is hilarious Elyse. I hope you don’t mind if i steal the idea – I could have a lot of fun with that. American politics never ceases to amaze me. Within 2 minutes of seeing Palin speak the first time, there was no doubt in my mind that she was ill equipped to be the commander in Chief of the most powerful military in the world. Palin in charge of nuclear codes? Dear Lord help us please. how could anyone fail to see that?


  14. Great imagery there (Nixon, Granpa Munster, and Ted Cruz). Nixon’s dead. Granpa Munster is a fictional character. And Ted Cruz — he’s just batshit crazy.

    That’s a striking set of pictures. Maybe there’s some secret clone lab that actually produced Cruz out of Nixon and Munster DNA. He would definitely be par for the course as a VP candidate, from the party that brought us such unforgettables like Nixon, Agnew, Quayle, and Cheney. It’s a little scary.

  16. As a Texan, I take offense. Grandpa Munster was a wise man, and although prone to ridiculous experiments with disastrous results, he should not be compared to Ted Cruz, (yet another ridiculous man with disastrous results). At least Grandpa Munster had a viable excuse – he was FICTIONAL, and a vampire, and meant to be humorous, and funny.

    Ted Cruz? Not so much.

    If it makes you feel any better, I got a robo-call asking for donations. Clearly they are blanketing the state, and country, without any regard for party lines. Otherwise, they would know that they should LOSE MY NUMBER. *rolling eyes*

  17. What? You’re not going to send him money or join his campaign trail? Think of the blog fodder you’ll miss out on…


Play nice, please.
