Elephants and Donkey cartoon and Top Ten Benghazi, IRS and AP jokes
And as Rupert Murdoch (the owner of News Corp and media groups like Fox News Channel and BSkyB) gazed upon the breadth of his domain, he wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer that the elephants and donkey could not break up into separately operating entities. — Yasha Harari
- “Top 10 Elephants and Donkey jokes about Benghazi, the IRS and the AP”
- 10. Tradition: Since many years, when it comes the the U.S. Congress, the Elephants and Donkey in the room are quite literally the huge unforgettable ass of America.
- 9. Wealth: Power is a form of wealth, and you can see it exercised best when the electric company gets the United States Congress to pay its bill on time, every time.
- 8. Haiku: Benghazi is lame. The IRS is lamer. Someone call AP.
- 7. Power: Politics is all about power. That’s why the DC Electric Company (PEPCO) is so plugged in to the halls of influence.
- 6. Democracy: It’s a funny thing, really, except for all the misery it creates. Truly, it’s still the worst version of stupid human governance, except for all the others.
- 5. Intelligence: It doesn’t take too much intelligence to realize that the power games being played out between the elephants and donkey are just politics as usual, aka: games that require little to no intell.
- 4. Protocol: A certain decorum is required for politicians to grill fellow Washington wonks and pencil-pushing bureaucrats before the media. That and a certain amount of opportunism.
- 3. Populism: Of course the Elephants and Donkey issues borne out of intense media scrutiny are not populist. Whatever would make you think that?!
- 2. Fame: If Republicans and Democrats wanted to prove that their intentions were pure and their souls were humble, then they would not seek fame the same way moths seek the light.
- … and the #1 Benghazi, IRS and AP joke is:
- 1. Three Words: Tempests in teacups.
