14 October 2014. THIS is Why the GOP May NOT Win the Senate… DO Think on It…

00 David Horsey. That's Not Far Enough. 2011

______________________________

Remember how Willy Romney was going to win in 2012? All the rightwing pundits said so… Fox News said so… the rightwing blogosphere said so. Barack Obama handed Romney a resounding defeat. This year… the GOP is going to win the Senate… all the rightwing pundits say so… Fox News says so… the rightwing blogosphere says so… in fact, their verbiage appears to be a rehash and regurgitation of what they wrote two years ago. Too bad Andrew Breitbart kicked the bucket… at least, he was interesting, and he never repeated himself… he wasn’t a Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, or Glenn Beck. He’ll be missed. There’s such a thing as a worthy foe… he was that. He gave no quarter, but he asked for none, either. That’s not seen much these days. That’s why I don’t sweat Ukie and konvertsy trolls… they say what they say… my stats haven’t gone down. (Hoisting a glass to all Ukie and konvertsy trolls:) “Here’s to you, guys… I don’t know how many readers that I picked up due to enemies… do watch the Law of Unintended Consequence… it’s a MOTHER”.

As I say, I loved Breitbart’s attitude… he was a HAPPY WARRIOR. His positions were shitty and his methods slimy, but he wasn’t a crybaby, and that goes far in my book. I think that there’s gonna be some surprises on Election Day…

******

In the above cartoon, in the original title, Yolkin used a non-standard word, триумфаторы (triumfatory), which isn’t the standard word for “victor”, which is победитель (pobeditel), or for “champion”, which is защитник (zashchitnik). Ergo, to keep the somewhat tongue-in-cheek pompous flavour of the title, I chose a similarly non-standard English word, “overcomer” to translate it. After all, “triumpher” doesn’t sound good at all, and I don’t think that it’s good English in any case.

The American righties are going to make much of Roizman’s victory, as he’s a political ally of the greedster slug Prokhorov (thank God, the Civic Platform pro-West collaborators won NO seats in the RF Gosduma, and they only have six seats in regional dumas out of 3,787 available seats). Let’s tell the truth… he only got 30 percent of the vote in a multi-candidate race… yet, Navalny’s pukes aren’t calling for a second round in this election! The zapadniki are charlatans and fraudsters… just like their Western Corporate sponsors and paymasters, I’d say…

By the way, the so-called “Ig Nobel Prizes” are a product of Harvard, Radcliffe, and MIT… all bastions of the American Establishment. As I say, shitbirds of a feather flock together. That is, it’s a not-so-subtle attack on Aleksandr Grigoryevich… take it with a BLOCK of salt… caveat lector!

I did my best to copy Yolkin’s “autumn” colouring for the cartoon’s heading.
