Skip to comments.Obama's Army Protection Racket (Monty Python sketch)

Mr. Obama's attempt to extort a supporting vote out of Ben Nelson by threatening to close Offutt AFB reminded me of a skit from Monty Python. (Most things remind me of Monty Python sketches but that's beside the point.)
The "Army Protection Racket"
There's a brief sketch before the main sketch which starts at 1:28.
Too bad we can't just declare the whole thing "silly" and end the sketch.
Pretty good. And it illustrates what’s going on with Nelson. He may decide to end the sketch though by not voting for the bill!
Fingers crossed, but I’m not holding my breath on it.
This is the Chicago way of doing business........extortion is a way of life for Obama and his Chicago Mafia. Now that we know how business is done in the Capitol...300 Million for Mary Landreau - wonder what Ms. Snowe or others will take for their vote....Americans vote these foul people out of office!
Yeah, that’s one of my favorite MP sketches.
