Late Night: Elephants on Parade

Analogy time: Rain is to Deluge as Parade is to _____?

Seriously, I’m asking—what’s like an absolutely ginourmous parade? Because when it came to Elephants making asses of themselves, whatever that is. . . is what we had this week. It was like a Noah’s Ark filled only with Republicans. . . with no limits on how many of any kind.

And, come to think of it, maybe that ark scenario is their, uh, wet dream. Imagine, everyone they know, love, and can identify through their secret handshake (hint: no fist bumping involved) on board—and absolutely nobody else. Meanwhile, the rest of us, all those sad-eyed socialists of the lowlands, all those frappuccino fascists, all those, you know, what’s the term. . . oh, yeah. . . people of color—all those folks are left off the SS John Galt, and allowed to drown in a flood of “porkulus” and brotherly love. . . or something like that.

Oh, and, added benefit: there’s plenty of fresh water for their million tea bags!

With that in mind, here’s Texan John Culberson—a real live elected US Representative—defending teabagging as “a spontaneous horizontal demonstration” (I kid you not), and so very much more.

Like I said, it was big week for big stupid. What was your favorite picture, interview, or story?
