What bears are they talking about? Brown bears, black bears, polar bears, grizzly bears or the Chicago Bears? The Chicago Bears for from Obama's home base. If they've turned on him, things are really bad!

I blame the weasels.

If they say Kodiak I'll be pissed.

It's always the badgers. Those sneaky little bastards.

Well, it might actually be sorta true if you think about it in the Andrew Sullivan sense.

Those polar bears are getting revenge for having to float on that damned iceberg.

This guy is really tripping on that yellow brick road.

From Maria Bamford's stand up comedy routine:
"Maria as a cult leader: Maria, what are you afraid of?

Maria as herself: Bears.

Maria as a cult leader: Maria, WHAT are you afraid of?

Maria as herself: The Great American Grizzly.

Maria as a cult leader: MARIA, WHAT are you afriad of?

Maria as herself: getting choked up I'm afraid of getting sucking into a crazy, creepy cult. WHY? Why am I afraid of that?"

He's blaming Barney Frank.

THE PLIGHT OF THE BABY SEAL

First they came for the lions, and I did not speak out—because I was not a lion;

Then they came for the tigers, and I did not speak out—because I was not a tiger;

Then they came for the bears, and I did not speak out—because I was not a bear;

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out.

Drudge report, January 22, 2010:
Spokesman for the White House announced today that "White House Says Bears Part of Blame for Senate Loss." The sex scandal that burst into view when Gentle Ben was campaigning for Martha Coakley and was caught in an internet sex video getting a "Cleveland Steamer" from Madonna.

A big reason behind my vote for Brown was my white male anger at having my picnic baskets stolen all the time. Why can't Obama tell Ranger Smith to do something?

They always laugh at Smokey. and then they pay.

Original Mike said...

Blaming Uncle Walter.

Ken said...

Well, if it's POLAR bears, they'll be extinct in a week or two.

What a Chicago football team has to do with the Senate, I cannot fathom.

New York Times January 22, 2010:
In an amazing coincidence, the final nail was driven into the Senate campaign of Democratic Candidate Martha Coakley due to a terrible auto accident that occurred on the bridge to Chappaquiddick the weekend before the special election. The candidate was driving some supporters home and was about to drop her last passenger a Mr.Winnie T. Poo off at his motel when she veered off the bridge and ran her Pruis into the tidal basin. After repeated attempts to dive down to the car to rescue Mr. Poo, the Senate Candidate realized that it was hopeless and adjourned to her own motel room for a hot shower and a session of spin control.

In the end, she realized she could not be elected Senator after leaving someone to die at the scene of an accident.

Coakley looked more like a horse than a bear IMO.

exhelodrvr1 said...

Duh - it obviously refers to the stock market.

Those lyin' fat cats and bears! Oh my!!

Freeman Hunt said...

"Grizzly Gov"

I love the image of bears roaming around, influencing political events. Maybe even bears in suits. Maybe even bears sitting at breakfast tables, reading this headline and looking put out!

Las Vegas Sun Journal, January 22, 2010
In a stunning twist of fate, one of the top strategists of the Martha Coakley campaign has forsworn politics for a new career as the first male bear prostitute in Nevada’s history.

Long a bastion of legal prostitution, “Teddy” as he is know decided that the change in careers is not all that radical a notion. “I have always felt like a prostitute, after all I have spent all of my life in politics. Now I will just get paid for it.”

Scandal had tainted the ursine consultant when he briefly was tangentially involved in the prostitution ring that was uncovered while he worked on Congressman Barney Frank’s staff, but he had seemed to turn his life around and had gained a prominent role in the Senatorial campaign of Attorney General Coakley.

(Not safe for work)

Polar bears or Andrew Sullivan bears?

David said...

DOW DOWN 600 POINTS SINCE SENATE ELECTION.

BULLS BARELY BEAR BEAR MARKET.

WHITE HOUSE BARES SOUL SAYS BEARS PART OF BEARS' BEAR MARKET.

My favorite ad of the campaign season was the short one of Smokey, with a "Vote for Brown" band around his ranger hat simply saying: "Only you can prevent Obamacare."

My second favorite was the crying Indian, opening a envelope to read, on "Death Panel" stationery, that "Your request for chemotherapy has been denied."

Michael said...

It's those pesky right wingers fault, always pushing for the right to arm bears.

edutcher said...

Well, Barry said it was fine if it was gonna be BarryCare referendum.

He wanted it. He got it.

Not unlike the legalo.

knox said...

This whole thing makes me think of "The Hotel New Hampshire."

MamaM said...

But the rest of the blame

skunks, snakes,
toads, bats,
scorpions, lizards,
sharks, eels,
vultures,hyenas
hydras, dragons and vampires.

That is so fucking stupid as to be a joke in my mind. Also for the queens, dykes, fems, twinks, and any other moronic affiliations that homosexuals group themselves under while asking the rest of the universe to accept them as a homogeneous whole. Idiots.

Stephen Snell said...

Mr. York hinted at it, but: Teddy Bear.

Where did Meth get a Howard Dean baby pic?
