Do Ya Know Who Your Friends Are?


Ya know what makes for political success? Knowin’ who your friends are. Which also means, knowin’ who your friends ain’t. An’ if dere’s one t’ing de Boss is good at, it’s fingerin’ his enemies.

Nuttin’ poisonal, ya unnerstand. It’s just business, see? Like when David Axelrod said Carrie Prejean was in de runnin’ to be de President’s dog. C’mon! Do youse t’ink for one minute Axelrod don’t know what a juicy tomato Carrie Prejean is? Why, one day, while he was doin’ some resoich, I was dere when he googled Carrie Prejean and he saw de listin’ for “Carrie Prejean Nude Pictures” – let me tell ya, he homed in on dat link like a rat goin’ after a hunk a’ gorgonzola; an’ take it from me, he was plenty pissed off when he clicked on de link an’ it took him to dat McCain guy’s blog.

An’ when de boss attacked Rush Limbaugh – hey, like I said, he didn’t have anyt’ing poisonal against de guy. So what, Limbaugh was a drug abuser and he can’t seem to get along wit’ none ‘a his wives, an’ he’s a fat putz; live and let live, dat’s de Boss’s motto.

So, mind your p’s and q’s an’ everyt’ing’s gonna be jake. An’ if ya do catch a little heat from one a’ de President’s button men, remember: it’s just business.

Oh, yeah, and youse, dere…Paco, or whatever your moniker is…youse’ll be catchin’ a little business if yez don’t stop talkin’ about de Obama Nostra – which, as everybody knows, dere ain’t no such t’ing.

I can just hear Paco when we turf Bari al-Taqqiyah out of the White House in 2012...

"Mr. Paco, what do you plan to do now?"

"I think I'll have a drink."

El C. scores by properly identifying this week's gangster!

I think technically it's called the Obamafia these days...

Yojimbo said...

Evidently the "Obamafia" is about to add a "Pay Czar"! Good God almightly! Since these bozos are outside the pervue of the Congress this guy could regulate the pay of every person in the US without one sentence of legislation.

Even Orwell is rolling in his grave. The EU bureaucrats are probably facing west and proclaiming "We are not worthy".

Yojimbo said...

Wonder when he is going to appoint a "Public Safety Czar" that can eliminate gun ownership by executive fiat?

Shouldn't give them any ideas I guess.

Paco said...

How long before they appoint a Czar of Czars - you know, a czar to keep an eye on the other czars.

richard mcenroe said...

I have notes somewhere for a Laumer-esque short SF about a possibly mythical Bureau of Bureaus (BuBu) that was theoretically in charge of keeping the other Bureaus from destroying society.

Now I know how Jules Verne felt. "Mon Dieu! I was only making the joke!"

A pay czar! Damn. I hope that means I get a raise.

Oh, wait. I'm not employed anymore.
