Vodka Pundit Grievously Insults Famed Omega Theta Pi Bluto Blutarsky

Things have gone way too far in the dextrosphere when the POTUS is compared to John Blutarsky:

Remember in Animal House, when John Belushi’s character yelled “Food fight!” in the cafeteria, got a good one going, then made himself a quick escape from the ensuing chaos? That’s right — we have John Blutarsky as commander-in-chief.

I am sure that the Bob Belvedere Chair of Applied Blogwhoring at Faber College will agree to my objection on the following grounds:

  • Blutarsky represents the finest in the American Falstaffian tradition, and should not be denigrated by comparison to the likes of BHO.
  • Leaders are people with followers. BHO, attempting to start a food fight, would throw like a girl, resorting in much pointing and laughing, but only at him.
  • Blutarsky would never appoint Biden to screw up anything that Bluto couldn’t better tube himself.

In defense of the Vodka Pundit, he may still be in insulin shock over the last speech BHO gave.
Now, while BHO may be less of a leader than Blutarsky, Tim Pawlenty is more:

Pawlenty, a former Minnesota governor who oversaw a state shutdown during his tenure, said Wednesday that the $38 billion in cuts agreed to in a last-minute compromise isn’t enough. He says that number isn’t accurate and the deal is “wholly unacceptable.”

Last week, Democrats and Republicans narrowly averted a partial shutdown of the government by agreeing on a spending plan for the rest of the current budget year, which ends Sept. 30. Final approval of that plan is expected this week.

Pawlenty has announced a presidential exploratory committee and is scheduled to speak at anti-tax events in Concord, N.H., and Boston on Friday.

I liked T-Paw’s book, and I’m sad to see the haters have driven it down to three stars. However, something at a detail level between that book and the full Paul Ryan plan would be interesting.
These GOP overtures, while not nothing, are still too centrist for my right wing reactionary self.
