Rant0matic: Oliver Cromwell Types for Me

Oliver Cromwell – April 20, 1653: It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil’d this sacred place, and turn’d the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress’d, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!”

    Please, Dems, get her some medical attention, this is embarrassing.

  • Rick December 20, 2019, 9:14 AM

    Isn’t this why RICO laws were enacted? Lock up the lot of them.

    If the US had a patriotic military leadership, (of which we do not) these thugs and slugs would be in chains for the rest of their lives or worse. The French revolution can be a learning experience. Or, enough is enough. “Off with their heads”.

    Can anyone imagine that she could get through a job interview as a gas station attendant? A waitress?
    A cashier in any type of retail store? How is it then that she is the leader of the Democratic party?
    I do not understand.

  • ghostsniper December 20, 2019, 9:58 AM

    “How is it then that she is the leader of the Democratic party?”
    Because she’s the best they can get, obviously.
    And she’s been there for decades.
    This isn’t new stuff.

  • Deana December 20, 2019, 10:07 AM


    Precisely. What manager who cares about their business would put this sort of person in charge of anything?

    I have to wonder if her family has any concerns for her mental state.

    I think it was someone on the Zman site who quipped that Nancy is always one pill away from a complete nervous breakdown. So apt. She seems on edge all the time.

  • Blondi Utronki December 20, 2019, 10:13 AM

    I can’t stand it when people talk with their hands.

  • MMinLamesa December 20, 2019, 11:26 AM

    She’s having a real hard time putting sentences together, I’ve been seeing this for years. Lots of fried synapse…LOTS. I say she’s like Now WTF?

  • Jeff Brokaw December 20, 2019, 11:29 AM

    We need an age limit on elected office.

    Of course Nancy has always been a corrupt joke, as is 97% of Congress at all times. Now she’s a doddering old fool too.

    Great work Democrats, you’re really covering yourself with glory these last few years.

  • James ONeil December 20, 2019, 11:36 AM

    To paraphrase a comment I read on the web today:

    Any time you’re feeling that you’re a bit stupid, just think about how many folks voted for Nancy Patricia Pelosi.

  • james wilson December 20, 2019, 11:54 AM

    If the entire Dem Congress were beheaded tonight they would shortly reappear in a very similar version, but worse. Politicians are but the face of the borg, they are not the borg, but I wish all my enemies were in Pelosi’s state of decomposition.

  • John the River December 20, 2019, 12:40 PM

    Donald J. Trump, almost alone against the entire Democrat Party. Seems a bit unfair, makes you want to jump in to even the odds; but I could never work with a Democrat!

  • captflee December 20, 2019, 1:27 PM

    Now, my official labors have on a number of past occasions placed me in the presence of politicians of many sorts, from the earnest and befuddled (then VA Lt. Gov Tim Kaine), to the energetic and inquisitive, yet oleaginous (then MG Petraeus), but I can authoritatively state that the one pol from whose vicinity I immediately wanted to flee, so as to preserve my soul from being sucked into the vortex of madness and evil that constitutes her very being, was San Fran Nan, then a mere factotum within the California Democratic Party, and not yet elected to any office.

    So as not to have to run the gauntlet into the West Oakland BART station, I had accepted a ride back to SF with the general manager of one of the ship repair companies then working on our vessel, but rather than first dropping me at my lodgings at the stately El Cortez (SF address on Oakland per diem!), he insisted we first stop off at some Donk soiree up at the Nob Hill Fairmont, at which he was to cough up a small stack of checks, the combined total of which would have not much more than a decade earlier bought a new Porsche 911T, and apparently the price of doin’ bidness in da Bay Area.

    After we manfully attempted to recoup some small fraction of his investment at the bar, the line of supplicants at the feet of MaeRose diminished to the point that we could hope to quickly fork over the lucre and scram. Presented to her as a federal employee and union member in good standing by my ride, she prattled on for what seemed to me several uncomfortable hours, up until the moment I mentioned that I had recently made what was, for me, a substantial contribution to a certain Senator Helms. I do believe that had I dropped trou then and there and defecated in the punchbowl she would have been less shocked and offended. Tending toward the jovial and collegial, I’m generally pretty hard to get a rise out of, but let me tell you, that woman’s demeanor struck me as loonier than the bums on Market Street.

    Crooked and crazy pols were not exactly unknown to me, FFS I was in those years home based in the Big Sleazy, and them Looziana ones are some real peaches, given how at least a plurality of the denizens thereof appear to prefer politics as purely entertainment, irrespective of accomplishment, producing such vivid characters as Huey P and Edwin Edwards, while GoodGov types like Dave Treen were damned and discarded by voters as too boring. Hell, the father of one of my friends was one of the shrinks involved with the Earl K involuntary commitment. Let me tell you, though, ain’t no crazy like Bay Area crazy.

  • Casey Klahn December 20, 2019, 2:25 PM

    All stellar comments. To james wilson: a salute.

    Since the topic is wandering conversations, please allow this slight tangent which is actually on spot.

    I created a meme yesterday that I will describe. Picture Mel Gibson as Braveheart, in his battle array and paint, with his fierce cohort. Top Text: When the Virginians depose their governor/ Bottom Text: Then notice that DC is right next door.

    Somewhere, a nursing home is missing a resident

    My old joke for NP was “somewhere a wax museum is missing an exhibit” but that no longer does her justice

  • OldFert December 20, 2019, 3:41 PM

    Where’d you find the video of Aunt Clara from the old Bewitched TV show? I thought she died years ago.

  • Desert Rat December 20, 2019, 4:58 PM

    I prefer to think of her as perfectly representative of her district.

  • Nori December 20, 2019, 5:43 PM

    Have another vat of wine,dear.

    @ Rick
    Re: “Isn’t this why RICO laws were enacted? Lock up the lot of them.”

    Back in the day, we the people were told that the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act was passed in order to battle the mob and drug cartels, but now the truth can be told: “Don’t steal – the government hates competition”…

    Oh, and as long as we’re on that subject, the RICO laws were the thin end of the wedge which eventually was perverted into asset forfeiture laws by which crooked cops can seize people’s stuff anytime they feel like, without any repercussions whatsoever.

  • Deplorable Bryan December 20, 2019, 11:59 PM

    Is it me, or does she have 2 sets of eyebrows?

  • Jack December 21, 2019, 6:55 AM

    Deplorable Bryan, I cannot decide that either but I will state emphatically that this pitiful and demented creature has a set of neck wattles that would make any tom turkey envious to the point of being ready to murder to have them.

  • Nori December 21, 2019, 11:41 AM

    That 2nd brow is her nictating eyelid.
    Further proof she’s one of the Lizard People.

  • Old Codger December 24, 2019, 7:38 AM

    And she’s been there for decades.
    This isn’t new stuff.
    Too, she, being from strong East Coast Mafia stock, is positioned as the prime distributor of Mexican Cartel goodies, upon which DEM rats thrive and become multi-millionaires! Exhibit A = Mad Maxine Waters, , who wouldn’t otherwise have survived her first working day as a motel housemaid.
