Liberal Congressman Cohen references "Blazing Saddles"
C-Span | 7/30/11 | Self

Posted on 07/30/2011 9:53:58 AM PDT by Migraine

I was just watching the short morning speeches on C-SPAN when liberal Mr. Cohen from NC (I think), was referring to the fact that conservatives are now opposing the raising of the debt ceiling; but they supported same when Bush was president.

He referenced the scene in "Blazing Saddles", when the citizens of Rock Ridge were asked by the new black sheriff for just 24 more hours to solve the crisis. Denied. Whereupon Sheriff Bart protested, "You'd do it for Randolph Scott." The citizens then showed reverence at the mention of that name, and capitulated.

Funny, but I've got a lot more Blazing Saddles quotes to use AGAINST the liberals. And can you imagine what would happen to a conservative congressman if he invoked metaphors from Blazing Saddles?

Actually, I picture a scene where dingy harry and the boys are sitting around the campfire eating beans and all you hear is constant farting and all you smell is noxious odor.

Great movie. There may be an element of truth to what Cohen says.

But then, the same is true for RATS. Urkel, 'Roid, and Nanzi P all voted against raising the debt ceiling in aught six.

There's even a YouTube video of President Clouseau admitting to Georgia Snuffleupagus his no vote was just a matter of him playing politics. I'll see if I can find it.

If Obamalamadingdong was playing politics then, why should we believe he's not playing politics now?

Don't answer that. That was a trick question.

...conservatives are now opposing the raising of the debt ceiling; but they supported same when Bush was president.

The DemocRATs are conveniently leaving out the fact that Congress voted to raise the debt ceiling THREE times for Obama previously. I guess Obama wasn't black then.

You know, today, I don’t particularly care for thw kind of people that made this movie. But, I have to say, that this is the kind of inspiration that has made them ‘the cream of the crop’.

Blazing Saddles could never be made today, and that is a shame. It was made back in the time that we all cared for each other, we all helped each other, and most of all...we were all Americans.

Obama...and the Black Panthers
have ended that feeling, we can’t even goof on each other anymore. He wants us all to hate each other and he wants us to be...
Eternal enemies.

It is not ‘Whitey’ that is the problem. Thr problem is with ‘Blackie’ (so called, ‘leaders’).

Steve Cohen is from Memphis TN...extremely liberal Jewish feller who represents a very liberal mostly black district (9th)

He is obviously not without talent in the chutzpah and schmooze department

He is also the one who more than anyone got smoking banned in many places in Tennessee

A do gooder.

I was just thinking of the scene where the black sheriff hold a gun to his head and says to the angry crowd, "Stay back! or I'll shoot the ******."

I think either that or "Excuse me while I whip this out," is the more appropriate metaphor for what's happening now.

... liberal Mr. Cohen ... was referring to the fact that conservatives are now opposing the raising of the debt ceiling; but they supported same when Bush was president.

"Congressman Cohen, there is a big difference between those two scenarios."

"You mean that Bush was white and Obama, like the Sheriff in Blazing Saddles, is not?

"Umm ... No. I mean that Obama TRIPLED the deficit and Bush did not."

A friend of mine -who is Jewish said the problem with most American Jews is they are Liberals.i.e. more Liberal than observant. In Cohens case I suspect he knows more about Blazing saddles than he knows about the US Constitution.And more about Democratic Party policy than he knows about Torah law.

Just from the headline the first scenes that came to mind were:

2. “Mongo just pawn in game of life”
