Nuke the Punchline: New SecDef

Harvey over at IMAO has another straight line of the day up, and so it is time to pick the winners of the last one:

Obama's new Defense Secretary...

#5 Crabby Old Bat: ...has vowed to keep the world safe from rogue YouTube video producers, even if it means hiring thousands of new government workers to scour the Internet 24-7 for offensive content.

#4 HokieGomer: ...will have a small, quaint Massachusetts town wondering where it’s idiot went.

#3 Bob in Feenicks: ...has to be small enough to fit under the bus when the time comes.

#2 Laurence Simon: ...was waiting for his work visa to be approved, but Israel took him out in a drone strike today.

And the best punchline goes to Dohtimes:

Obama's new Defense Secretary should know that as much as Obama likes dog for dinner, every now and then he orders up a sacrificial lamb.

Congratulations, Dohtimes!


The best punchline for the last Nuking Politics straight line was Rodney Dill:

With Petraeus out as the CIA director, Obama will be able to get Biden to remove his tinfoil hat.

Congratulations Rodney!


Now here's a line for you guys to play with:

The Obama administration is proposing a new national animal...

Support Capitalism...


  1. Sloth.

    Wait... you said a new national virtue, right?

  2. ...the unicorn! The magical animal that would have solved all of the nation's problems...if only the greedy corporations hadn't polluted their environment and evil republicans didn't hunt them to extinction.

  3. …the opossum. It has the power to consume anything it encounters, plays dead when it thinks trouble is near and hisses and spits when poked and prodded.

  4. ...hoping to finally realize Benjamin Franklin's dream of a national symbol fit for consumption (at least in Obama's eyes).

  5. The Honey Badger - he just don't care

    (can't believe that one was still out there)

  6. ...the majestic, and tasty, bald beagle.
