Worst Political Christmas Card of the Season

There are still a few hours to go until we reach the 2012 horizon, so there is still plenty of time for some GOP candidate antics.  They would have to register high on the wackjob scale, however, to top this.

Suffice it to say, it’s been a pretty embarrassing year for Neil Livingstone and Ryan Zinke.  However, they have managed to squeeze this last humiliation in before the New Year.

This is certainly the weirdest holiday card I’ve ever seen from…well…anyone.  What says “Merry Christmas” less than Livingstone and Zinke in a sleigh with Zinke brandishing a scope sighted M-16, a dead wolf on the front of the sleigh, drone wings, hidden pistols, and an unintentional homage to Obama–a crossed out face of Osama bin Laden. And don’t forget the bag of extractive-industry-only jobs and the PhD certificates.

This is one oddball message to wrap up into a Christmas card and send to the electorate.  Presumably, the “strategy” behind this is to show that these guys ARE TOO! nutty enough to compete with Drew Turiano and Chuck Baldwin. A larger version can be seen here.

      “He knows when you are sleeping.
      He knows when you’re on the can…
      He’ll hunt you down and blast your ass from here to Pakistan
      Oh!…
      You better not breathe, you better not move, you’re better off dead… i’m tellin’ you dude
      Santa Claus is gunning… you down!”

    With all the “thought” that went into this card. It’s interesting to note that there is one thing that is conspicuously missing. Let’s not forget the utter lack of references to “the reason for the season”: Jesus. Quickly, somebody call in Dennis Rehberg, who can launch a full scale war into this latest manifestation of the war on Jesus Christ. Conspiracy!!

  2. Paul S.

    Has anyone seen Jesus’ long-form birth certificate? This whole Jesus thing might just be a conspiracy. Keep up the good work Livingstone!

  3. Steve Simpson

    Translation of Livingstone and Zinke: Celebrate the birth of the savior you have, not the savior you wish you had.

  4. Drill Baby Drill

    These men are trying to send the message they are delivering jobs, and to present to the voters a picture of who they are and their background. Promoting discussion of this sort will only further their name recognition and conservative clout. Your liberal attacks only further that purpose.

          Now that’s just poor photoshopping. Seriously though, it’s hard to believe that no one can find a (real) worse example than this. I”m just now noticing the fake muscles Zinke has given his cartoon figure. Pathetic.

    Luv it. But here’s a better caption: Merry Christmas….from the FLYING DILDO BROTHERS! What a couple’a freakin’ maroons! The ONLY thing these gumbas are lacking are dildos for headwear! (cammo of course)

    Here we have two bozos who have SUCKED off the gubmint dole their entire lives, and now, as they are approaching old age, they want to pimp OUR resources to pad THEIR retirements! That’s called bein’ a freakin’ loser!

    But it is a leetle disconcerting to hear zinke talkin’ about “revolution” and then sending a christmas card with an M-16! This dude is SERIOUS wackjob! Jesus just LUVED him some dead wolves and drilling rigs!

    Bottom line? These pathetic bugnuts got industry pimp written all OVER them! Sad, so sad that the Pubbie prezidunce field got nuthin’ on these buffoons!

    Hey, Flying Dildo Bros., try getting a REAL job some time, losers! ( that is other than suckin’ offin’ Unca Sugarteat and trying to extort money from dicktaters!)

    But I DO give them a 10 for comic relief value! Sheesh.

      And if you haven’t read Pogie’s blog on Livingscam, you must, ALL of it, including the links listed provided by others. It’s important to understand just HOW wierd and outta control this guy Livingscam really is. Tell me is you see any “Montana values” in his bio. HEY, if you want to know the proper way to cut a bad guy’s throat, neil’s you man! There is much need for that here in Montana, right?

    p.s. And the one little thing that the Flying Dildo Bros. could have added to the card to make it more Santa like would have been maybe “Greetings for the Ollie North Pole”! Why? Well, it seems that little Livingscam was an ADVISER to ollie north during the Iran Contra scandal! Nuff said, huff? The dude is as sleazy, cheesey, and slimey as they come! He claimed to run his own “private CIA”! How nice. Do we REALLY want an ollie north type sleazeball as our guv? I think not. Everything this guy has touched has turned to slime. Creepy isn’t it? And very weird that he has come to Montana. He’s better suited to defending the criminals of Gazprom in Uzbekistan! What a joke.

    And zinke, the big christian boy, cozying up to slime. Was that what HIS idea of Jesus is all about?

  7. Ryan Zinke

    Happy New Year! Lighten up, it’s a fun card. However, the comment that military service is tantamount “sucking off” the government is disgraceful. A reminder good Sir, that the reason you have freedom of speech is some soldier, sailor, airman, or marine fought and sometimes died to defend your right. P.S. The weapon is an M-4 and not an M-16. If you would have served you would have known the difference. All the Best and God Bless our Troops. Ryan

      Nam ’71-’72. Dog Handler. Carried a Car 15 and a 1911. And I do appreciate military service, but I DON’T appreciate senseless, evil, unnecessary wars like Iraq for corporate profit. There is nothing about senseless wars that insures free speech in this country. And really, as we lose our freedoms daily, quite the opposite is true.

      Peace. Let’s try it. Now that your out, fight for peace and justice. And indeed, God bless our troops. Don’t slaughter them for nothing!

      nam 70-71…

      my son is also service connected disabled vet from iraq.
      every generation of my family has served since peter norton in 1740.
      and…
      i say bullshit.
      not a single vietnamese EVER attempted to deprive a single person in this country of their free speech or any other sacred right.
      larry is dead, er, live on!
      i will die any day for my family, community or country…
      but not for someone else to get rich and diminish OUR rights in the process.
      the “threat” gig is the same one hitler used to invade poland…
      bullshit then…
      bullshit now.
      the only one threatening my rights, as madison(?) warned, is my own country.

    p.s. And what I find “disgraceful” and shameful is a Christmas card featuring a machine gun! Sorry, that’s just the way us pagans are. As Ghandi said, “I like your Jesus but not your Christians”. And I would add especially ones that profane the spirit of the Christ on the celebration of His birth with weapons for slaughter. Sorry, but I don’t see the fun in that. What Jesus do you follow, the Rambo Jesus? My Jesus threw the money changers (read corporate fascist bastards) outta the temple. And he didn’t need no M-4 to do it. I like that.

  9. Lt. Col (Ret, USAR) Rich Liebert

    Weapons on Christmas card puzzle me, as aren’t we supposed to encourage Peace of Earth (yes, I like ‘Peace thru Strength’ I was weaned on)? I don’t think General Eisenhower would have approved and we all know what he thought about the Military-Industrial (and Congressional) Complex. I greatly respect Cdr. Zinke and the warrior virtues – which include courage and compassion – have been greatly corrupted by Corporations bent only
    on profit, not true security as they work to keep us in constant fear. Please. Peace of Earth.

      I think we can all respect sen. zinke’s service. So, I guess the question that we’re all asking is just WHY he would lend his good name to ollie north’s good buddy, livingscam? This dude is off the charts bad news. He appears to have been involved in most every corporate criminal activity in the last thirty years, or at least he claims to have been. He has advocated for illegal wars, and THEN profited by them. He has represented some of the most vile criminals the world has to offer. Are THESE the same Montana values zinke supports? Does livingscam think that Montana is now third world enough that his contras will work here? Is THIS the “revolution” that zinke speaks of? Is Montana the new Nigeria?

      This entire campaign is bizarre. A cursory look at livingscam’s background indicates that he would be very bad news for Montana. We don’t NEED extra-legal solutions with “muscle” to our problems. We don’t NEED some moron who claims to have his own private CIA. We don’t NEED ollie’s buddy. We can do better than guys who consort with felons, and folks who should be in jail!

      Maybe sen. zinke himself could respond with just what he finds admirable in livingscam’s background. Maybe zinke thinks Montana NEEDS a private CIA! And some assassins!

      1. Dan T.

        I respect the service of anyone who served. So, I have always wondered how Rick Hill avoided being drafted in the Vietnam war. Anyone know?

    Larry, your circumambient preoccupations do display keyboard dexterity, however this rehash of antique sublines is barely raising a feather in the cult.
    btw, toy must have a big mop

    1. Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers

      Well, I’m glad that you cleared THAT up for us, Dogberry! BHWHAHAHAAAAAAA! Too funny. Makes a whole lot more sense now!

    2. Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers

      Here, Whizz, I save you the trouble, moron, and do you next post FOR you!

      Dogberry: Marry, sir, they have committed false report; moreover, they have spoken untruths; secondarily, they are slanders; sixth and lastly; they have belied a lady; thirdly, they have verified unjust things; and, to conclude, they are lying knaves.

      Like it? Me too! BWHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!

      Do stick around, Whizz. You’re good!…….humor fodder.

    Has anyone noticed that it is not a Christmas card? No place on this political card is Merry Christmas actually mentioned. As a matter of fact, it is a Political New Years greeting. Maybe Livingstone and Zinke are trying to keep church and state separate here. It doesn’t look like they are focusing on religion, rather their focus is JOBS! Also like all politcal adverts, it has all the necessary “paid for by….” I’ve never seen a Christmas card with those words. Looks like these two are anything but traditional

    You guys should go to Ryan Zinke’s facebook page. Apparently they’ve set this to superhero music and made some kind of slide show.

    1. Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers

      Well of COURSE they’re super heroes! I mean, it’s damn EASY to impress their followers! You see, there are LOW information voters, and NO information voters, and then, even beyond those two categories are the LivingSCAM/zinke voters! These dudes are in a class by themselves! They are the true revolutionaries, the so-called Palinistas! The drill baby drill crowd!

      Oh sure, they’re dumber than dog shit, but HEY, they vote! And that makes them game! They LIKE a guy like Livingscam who defended a traitorous felon like ollie north, whom I affectionately refer to as Lob Lolly Ollie. He’s that kinda guy!

      So, expect to hear the superhero bullshit ’cause that’s all they got! NEVER ask them an actual question, because they have no answers! It’s simply a new scam by Livingscam! Nuthin’ there but thin air! Ask ol’ Livingscam how he’s gonna PRODUCE all them jobs! Ain’t happenin’. Montana’s moved on. Neil’s stuck in Contra mode. He’s apparently gonna unleas his OWN private CIA and his inbred reetarded Palinistas on Montana!…..BWAHAHAHAHAAA!

      Yes, you can laff now. Neil Lob Lolly Ollie and his Palinistas ain’t a’gonna get much traction in Montana. It AIN’T the nineteenth century, even for a guy who has his own private CIA!………..BWHAHAHAHAHA!

    Is this for real or did someone make this as a parody? Sorry, but I have to ask. If its a parody, can we add Qaddafi’s head crossed out too, like it was added then scribbled out at the last minute?

    1. Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers

      What they REALLY should have had hanging off the sled was a little likeness of Ken Saro Wiwa, world renowned author and playright. For you see, this is EXACTLY they type of activity that a moron with his “own private CIA” specializes in on behalf of the coporate fascists. If you don’t know who Ken Saro Wiwa was, you should. And if you don’t know what a private CIA is all about, you should.
