Anthony Weiner for President?

Unsubstantiated rumors circulating the web claim embattled Congressman Anthony Weiner might turn the tables on his detractors by running for the nation’s highest office.

Bill Clinton set the bar on sexual chicanery in the White House during his Lewinsky affair — but fostered a great economy at the same time. Perhaps there’s a connection of talent here, one beneficial to Rep. Weiner’s potential comeback.

Satire/news website IUDEXonline just uploaded former CRACKED Magazine Publisher Dick Kulpa’s “Top Ten List” of possible slogans Weiner may wish to use during any potential Presidential run.

These are based on famous slogans from past elections. “Weiner’s the One” was borrowed from Richard Nixon’s 1972 campaign, and the obvious “A Weiner in every Bun” is derived from the famous Herbert Hoover “Chicken in every pot” slogan. There are eight more, one of them inspired by an Alice Cooper hit song!

In another breaking IUDEXonline story, the results are in on Sarah Palin’s emails, Be prepared for a shock!

Is Al Qaida Plot Causing Speaker Boehner to Cry?

John Boener weeps again

House Speaker John Beohner's loose tearducts are beginning to irritate some people.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — They vowed to turn American cheers into tears, and it looks like Al Qaida is succeeding, say sources, who claim to have uncovered a bizarre terrorist plot designed to turn U.S. officials into crybabies. Oddly enough, it appears U.S. Speaker of the House John “Boo-Hoo” Boehner is their prime target.

Speaker Boehner allegedly broke down twice as he spoke during a recent commencement exercise in the nation’s capital, according to major news organizations. If true, this is the latest in a series of crying jags besetting the prominent U.S. official, stemming from victory speech wails to a breakdown on the TV show “60 Minutes.” Other weeping incidents have also occurred in his recent past, according to press reports.

But there may be cause for all this: The unnamed sources claim a mystery parcel — filled with onions — was found “in close proximity” to Boehner’s podium. Other evidence has also been found, they add.

But “terrorist plots” may not be the culprits. A psychic claims Boehner’s propensity for crying stems from an alleged rejection by girl playmates back when he was a boy.

In a recent alleged incident, several key congressmen supposedly chastised Boehner , comparing their pit bulls, German Shepherds and Dobermans to an alleged poodle in the Speaker’s possession, and at one point Boehner began to cry. Feeling sorry for their colleague, the offending representatives backed Boehner for Speaker of the House.

This satirist has not found any evidence of any poodle in Boehner’s possession, and attempts to reach key people went unanswered. Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was said to be “snickering too much” to comment.

“Speaker (John) Boehner is part of the line of succession to the U.S. Presidency,” warns an outsider. “Whatever is ailing him, be it Al Qaida plots, onions, hemorrhoids or defacto emotional issues, he needs to “man up” and get this resolved before America starts to look like it’s run by a bunch of sissies. Perhaps an on-off spigot attached to each eye will do it.

Alternative Osama bin Laden “Death” Pix for Folks Hot to See SOMETHING . . .

Captain Cartoon has posted his own interpretation of Osama Bin Laden’s face as it might have looked during the SEAL raid on his compound. One image reflects his looks when he first laid eyes on SEALS, and a second Osama image shows him after he was put out of his misery — at least as per the Captain’s interpretation.

President Obama’s decision to categorically NOT release the Osama death photos “is in all probability the right move,” says the Captain. “But I felt all those people waiting to see ‘something,’ needed something.”

Keeping in mind that Captain Cartoon’s caricature site is “family friendly,” the Captain did exercise some discretion in posting this imagery.”These are somewhat ‘sanitized,” he admits.

Along with these images is his latest royalty-free Obama-Osama cartoon, swiftly drawn and uploaded immediately after the death of Osama bin Laden was announced. Plus, royalty-free cartoons showing Donald Trump in superhero tights and Charlie Sheen in a “Whiners” T-shirt can also be seen.

All these images, and more, can be seen here.

Elvis Presley Agrees With Trump — “Show Me Obama’s Birth Certificate!”

WEST PALM BEACH — IUDEX online is reporting that Elvis Presley is offering to come out of hiding and perform in public if the President releases his actual birth certificate!

Dovetailing on possible Presidential contender Donald Trump’s accelerated investigation into the ongoing “birther” controversy, the caller purporting to be Elvis offered to appear on Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice “once the certificate is released.”

IUDEX Online had no way of knowing if the caller was actually Elvis, who allegedly died in 1977. Numerous reports of “Elvis sightings” have been made through the years. “It sure sounded like ‘The King,'” said IUDEX online’s publisher. See more.

In a related story, a IUDEX online poll indicates Donald Trump would win the Presidential election hands down. “Folks are seeing The Donald as a real superhero, says IUDEX online’s publisher. “He’s certainly proven himself in both handling money and problem solving.”

Some experts view Trump’s foray as a publicity stunt, but others worry he’ll get in over his head. “Trump may have made his mark in the real estate business, but he’s got lots to learn in the handling of real state business,” said one.

Alleged insiders also say Trump is considering recruiting a squad of cheerleaders, dubbed “The TRUMPettes,” for his coming Presidential campaign.

Donald Trump as a superhero

Donald Trump may be just the superhero this country needs to help get America back on track.

Cartoonist says ‘Use Cartoon Billboards and Campaigns to Stop Union-Busting GOP’

As corporate-backed Republicans target the working man’s major organizations, i.e. labor unions, political cartoonist and caricaturist Captain Cartoon thinks it’s high time to fight back — with cartoon campaigns!

The veteran political cartoonist has harnessed cartoon campaigns in support of (or in defense of) numerous issues, with admirable success. His most recent campaigns utilized gigantic cartoon billboards drawn on behalf of various police unions.

“I’m neither pro nor anti union,” says the artist. “Rather, I’m ‘pro-America.’ However, it’s becoming more apparent to me that there’s a definite ‘Republican-fueled’  targeting of ‘the little guy’,  and what better way to accomplish this  than to destroy one of the common man’s most powerful institutions, i.e. organized labor,” he said.

To that end, Captain Cartoon is prepared to draw cartoons — at discounted rates — in support of union supporters in Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana.

“Trust me, political cartoons — created and presented effectively — tend to get their point across, if not send the bad guys ‘heading for cover,'” he added, “I aim for the jugular.”

See  the Captain’s latest cartoon billboards, as well as impressive results of some of these campaigns, here!

Two new Wikileaks cartoons by the Captain

Julian Assange caricature

Digital caricature of Julian Assange, produced by Captain Cartoon

Julian ASSange’s appearance on Captain Cartoon’s radar has manifested in the form of two new Wikileaks cartoons produced by the South Florida cartoonist.

The first cartoon shows Assange in the presence of a naked state department “fat lady”, with the Wikileaks flounder himself holding her dress. No effort was made to actually I-D the pictured lady, but one can make an educated guess as to who she is supposed to be.

“The fun part was actually trying to envision Hillary Clinton naked,” says the cartoon Captain. He once photo-manipulated her image by throwing (stuffing) the former First Lady into a bikini during his Weekly World News days.

The Captain followed up with a digital caricature of Julian Assange, (shown above), drawn with his Wacom tablet onscreen. “I really wanted to capture his ‘pouty, spoiled brat look,” says the Captain.

Vehemently opposed to the unauthorized publication of stolen documents, not to mention the rippling, crippling effect that action will have on our country’s ability to “do business,” Captain Cartoon plans more cartoon commentary on the Wikileaks subject.

Both cartoons have been posted on Captain Cartoon’s website for free use.
