Hi there! Welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You. I'm Dave-El and that Kentucky rain keeps falling down.
Today is Friday and that means an installment of that news satire sensation of the internet, bROkEN nEWs.
I realized months ago that this Friday would come after the November 4th elections and I thought what better time to do a a tribute to a frequent and unwilling guest to bROkEN nEWs, the Republican Senator from Kentucky, Mitch McConnell. I figured either Mitch would be defeated in his re-election bid and this would be a moment to offer a fond farewell to our favorite Senator from the Bluegrass State. Or he would win his race and we would have 6 more years of
So after several weeks of planning...to eventually think about the possibility of maybe doing something about that, I realized on Tuesday that, "Oh shit! Today's election day!"* So I then hastily assembled this celebration of Sen. McConnell's re-election victory.
*Apparently millions of Democrats high on legal weed were even slower to react given the vote totals.
Boy, what a win! We not only get Mitch back but with the GOP in control of the Senate, our buddy is going to be Senate Speaker. And you know what that means? Even MORE chances to poke fun at our political pal, Mitchy Mick.
Like a lot of other politicians, Mitch has found himself appearing in bROkEN nEWs in pictures like these...
And in headlines like these.
- #BrokenNews “Senate Passes New Filibuster Rules... McConnell: 'You Will Regret This'... “ Adding, “You will rue the day!” as McConnell gathered his black cloak about him and disappeared in a puff of smoke, his sinister laugh still echoing through the Senate chamber.
- #BrokenNews "Mitch McConnell: Immigration Reform Not Happening In 2014" Mitch added, "Hell, if we play our cards right, we won't get any shit done around here! At all! Again! Sweet!"
- #BrokenNews “Mitch McConnell's Got A Gun” A gun? Just "A" gun?! The NRA is displeased: Mitch McConnell should have LOTS of guns!
But there was a special feature that belong only to Mitch. It was a feature that underscores the humanity and deep seeded emotions of this great politician from Kentucky. So in celebration of Mitch McConnell's victorious re-election to the US Senate, bROkEN nEWs now proudly present....
And this has been...
My thanks to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for providing so much awkwardness.
You know, on this most auspicious occasion, Mitch, I really should've gotten you a gift but I didn't.
Saturday on the blog, it's day one of Doctor Who Weekend as we take a look at the Doctor's most diabolical enemy.
Sunday on the blog, it's a review of Death In Heaven, the sense shattering final episode of Series 8.
Meanwhile, next Friday sees a return to form with an edition of bROkEN nEWs that is ALL New, only PARTIALLY funny.
Until then, be good to one another.
