The Congressional Oath of Office Regatta
I’m sure you got THAT right.(No offense of the THAT part.)
Help them with strokes! From my lips to God’s ear.
Steady as she goes.
Gives a whole different perspective on not rowing with all their oars in the water.
Today’s strip is going nowhere.
Although there is the same number of oars on each side of the boat, the number taking the oath to the right of the oath giver is missing an oarsman.
Form this perspective it would like the the boat is turning to the right…(starboard)….and of course going in circles as always….
Will it go round in circles or slowly circle the drain…?
It will whack! the Start/Finish buoy periodically.
BTW, we will never truly be an egalitarian country until we get a president that worships Zeus….Personally I’d choose Aphrodite…Or at least Athena…I am getting so tired of all these freaking male Gods! They ain’t even worth that smelly sock on the end of Danae’s bed… OK, Loki acts like an American, so he would make a great president…..Dang, another male….Can we just go with Aphrodite? Please?,
But what kind of sacred text would a Zeus worshiper put his hand on to be sworn in….?
…and the rest of us are up the creek without a paddle…
Hey Varnes,I, personally, like my scotch with Isis.She was a determined, seafaring woman, a great negotiator, wielded power like a Pharaoh and could organize a bunch of illiterate rowers to do her bidding and they worshiped her for it. The ship of State would be much better served with a woman as god… er… POTUS.
Wiley… are you ever going to write a book about your drawings? I’d buy it in a blink of an eye. You are the best!
STROKE!No…don’t row…just have a stroke.sarcasticallyC.
“That government is best which governs least!”Thomas Jefferson.
Corollary: When they’re doing nothing, It keeps ’em outta our pockets and pocketbooks!
Doesn’t help much when you have a WH ruling by fiat, though.
so, that boat will be spinning in circles until they all go overboard and get nauseous. either that, or the boat splits in have and both sides sink and gets wet.
The shitp of state.
I’d name it “Doomed.”
Congress go round in circles… mm mm
full of sound and fury, going nowhere fast
I like my regatta with meatballs and bolognese. (Did I spell that right?)
What goes around, comes around.
oh so true…..
Life takes an expected turn.
As usual, congress is going to try to put a spin on things.
Taking the high road so early in the morning I see . . . Sadly, I don’t think the democrats in congress are much better. I wish it wasn’t so, but that’s my hunch.
Gokie, I thought that sounded familiar..Granfallon rang a bell…Thanks emptc….
Hey, it was early in the morning, you guys are right, that thing wouldn’t go anywhere…..
To make matters worse, the coxswain is a judge …..
Gonna hit buoy as they rotate in place.
I wonder if they can keep it afloat ?
With this configuration they would go in circles. That looks too much like progress. Actually, all the oars would be on the same side, so that any effort would only result in deadlock.
Actually, the way they’re set up, they’ll be going in circles, not standing still.
Red Green put it best when he compared youth to a body dictatorship and middle age to a wide open democracy. When the parts can’t even agree on anything, you suffer bad government, voter unrest, and saddest of all, a hanging chad. I’d say America’s middle age is going par for the course.
When I tell people my name or address, and they ask, “How do you spell that?” I always reply, “t.h.a.t.” Or, I put a “p” or “k” in front of it and explain that it’s silent, like pneumonia or knife.
Bill Ewing: It wasn’t Jefferson. It was Thoreau, quoting a straw man he was about to demolish.
LIE, stroke, LIE, stroke
All the oars are on the left though…
A truly “bi-partisan effort”, implies there will initially be some agreement, and some dis-agreement.AGREED = Oars to the leftDISAGREED= Which way is forward
If the girls don’t find ya handsome, at least let ’em find ya handy !
Omnius is a troll, I have yet to see it reply to a comment. If we ignore it, maybe it will go away.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>I happened to post this earlier on Doonesbury.
I heard an interesting discussion about Trolls, last night. Trolls say outrageous things that are inflammatory so that they can gain attention – especially, if it’s negative reaction to what they say. They may not even believe what rubbish they are spewing but repeat and repeat and repeat in order to garner that negative feedback. That way, they can say : " See, I must be right, look at how many of those right/left wing ( your choice ) a$$holes are against me ! "ITT is the mantra, around here. ITT = IGNORE THE TROLLS !
It might help if they all rowed in the same direction……and why is this “boat” not named the Titanic anyway?
Goooooal!!! Atma scores late in the game…
I don’t think they’re going to row. Those oars are just ceremonial.
Physically it must be going round in circles which is another way of getting nowhere fast.
I’ve been refreshing the page for three hours. No new comics??
One of the few times I have early morning insomnia, and the comics are late! Guess I’ll have to watch overnight TV infomercials.
It’s 5:00 somewhere, unfortunately, all of GoComics thinks it’s 5:00 yesterday.
Okay, Aphrodite it is!
