Ducks, Trump, Cruz, and Beaver Dams

duck dynasty

Via Reeko:

Duck Commanders Willie and Phil Robertson have each endorsed one of the two GOP front-runners for President. Willie supports Trump and patriarch Phil has chosen Cruz. This is as delicious a political gumbo that I could ever think of tasting. This father and son team epitomizes the friendly and close political nature of our current two front-runners. Never any need for rancor – we are all in the same family, politically, and the future of our country is in the balance. Only one of the candidates will win, and most likely will win it all. Cruz himself just said that. No, really. He just said that if Trump wins Iowa, he will probably win it all. No kidding.

Willie and Phil understand that very well. Since they were forced to give up on their local favorite, Governor Bobby Jindal, both of the Duck Commanders know that there aren’t any better choices for President than either Trump or Cruz. We should all be that confident. They both are profoundly excellent choices, and both Robertsons give amazingly accurate reasons for their prospective choice. It does warm the heart, eh?

A persistent meme of mine that I’ve used since Trump entered the race, has been that of a recurring theme used since Episode One of the A&E hit show “Duck Dynasty” and continued through all the seasons including now. That meme is: blowing up beaver dams. For those not familiar with DD, the Robertsons are avid duck hunters and in fact have built their multi-million dollar empire on duck calls and other paraphernalia. They even have vast amounts of hunting land in lower Arkansas and Northern Louisiana which Phil simply calls “The Land” when telling whenever he is going out in it. On their “Land” the Robertsons and their Duckmen have a never-ending battle with beavers. To put it mildly, they HATE beavers. The invading rodents destroy waterways, trees, vegetation, and dam-up the natural flow of water which is so critical to duck flyways and habitat. The solution to beaver dams is, of course, the judicial use of dynamite. Lots of dynamite. Sometimes, just to practice blowing beaver dams up, they blow up other things as well. Like old trucks. Barns. Logjams, even if they just happen to not be a beaver’s fault. It is highly entertaining.

Sometimes, when the “natural flow” of our nation’s politics has become so dammed up as to not be able to tell the Republican Elites from the Democrats or the Socialists, then maybe its time for some judicial use of political dynamite. Trump OR Cruz could light that fuse. I’ll vote for that. Ka-boom! 😉

Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees!!


It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are this weeks’ nominees….

The wife of jailed Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, Lilian Tintori (C), flanked by Lopez's mother Antonieta Mendoza (R), speaks with the press
 The Goons Who Work For Venezuela’s Fascist Regime

Fausta’s Blog: The Venezuelan prison guards who stripped-searched and molested the wife, and the mother, of political prisoner Leopoldo Lopez

Lopez’s mother was molested and searched in the presence of her two young grandchildren.

She was ordered to remove her clothes in front of her grandchildren, six-year-old Manuela and Leopoldo Santiago, aged two.

Words fail.

Left Wing Wack Job Adam H. Johnson!

 The Independent Sentinel: I have to say Adam H Johnson who writes for the gutter crawling rag, Alternet, is one of the worst weasels I’ve come across.

Check out this tweet, one of many along the same lines and tell me he’s not a weasel of the lowest order.
 Trump Campaign Spokeswoman Katrina Pierson!

The Daley Gator : My Nominee is Katrina Pierson, Trump Campaign spokesperson. I knew that when presidential nominee shyster Donald Trump hired campaign spokes-shyster Katrina Pierson that she would be trouble for him.

Morally Deficient Harris County, Texas DA Devon Anderson!

Nice Deb : I nominate the Houston Grand Jury for indicting the messengers instead of the actual offenders, in the Planned Parenthood investigation.

A Harris County grand jury investigating allegations that a Planned Parenthood clinic in Houston illegally sold the tissue of aborted fetuses has cleared the organization of wrongdoing and instead indicted two anti-abortion activists behind the undercover videos that sparked the probe.

Secret videographers David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were both indicted on charges of tampering with a governmental record, a second-degree felony that carries a punishment of up to 20 years in prison. Daleiden received an additional misdemeanor indictment under the law prohibiting the purchase and sale of human organs.

Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson announced the surprising indictments Monday after a two-month investigation.

Shocking, but maybe not too surprising considering Harris County’s reputation for political shenanigans. Former Texas Governor Rick Perry was also indicted by a Harris County grand jury, it so happens.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels…ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.

And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.
