According To Mark Twain … Politicians & Diapers Have This In Common

The world has changed a lot since Mark Twain’s day. But some things haven’t.

We’re pretty confident his respect for politicians would not have improved over time. If anything, he’d be even more convinced.

We have had a woman running for President as a ‘Feminist’ even after protecting a repeatedly-accused rapist (also her husband, and President) against her many accusers. Worse than protecting him, she sought to destroy them.

We have the perpetually offended who think life’s biggest problem is which bathroom someone ought to pee in.

We have Elected officials who are actually convinced that a President with a Jewish son-in-law, and whose grandkid is learning Chinese is somehow a racist.

Nancy Pelosi said that the government taking less of your money is ‘Armageddon’.

Sheila Jackson Lee thinks the Constitution is some 400 years old and that she’s a ‘Queen’ deserving the royal treatment.

And a personal favorite — Democrat Hank Johnson believes that Guam will tip over and capsize because too many people are on it. (He was re-elected after this, somehow.)

Then there was the 2014 Democratic candidate for a Kentucky Senate seat, Alison Lundergan Grimes, that flaunted her vast knowledge of international affairs by saying that Israel’s ‘Iron Dome’ missile defense system ‘has been a big reason why Israel has been able to withstand the terrorists that have tried to tunnel their way in. ‘

The Washington Free Beacon attempted to recreate her thinking with this illustration:

Here at Clash, we have a problem with the Washington Free Beacon’s model — they clearly forgot about the land-dwelling, subterranean sharks with the laser beams on their heads.

The Israelis keep those well-hidden, but here are their water-dwelling cousins in action:

Shockingly, despite her impressive foreign policy savvy, Alison Lundergan Grimes didn’t win against Mitch McConnell in 2014.

And don’t even get me started on Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, and Maxine Waters…

…or serial sexual harasser and octagenarian, John Conyers, who has served as a Congressmen for 26 terms.  He has spent 52 years in office.  To put this further into context, the first time he was elected representative of Michigan’s 1st District, it predated the moon landing by 5 years.

This does not inspire confidence.

And we haven’t even gotten into the serious stuff, like unlawful breaches of their Constitutional authority, or weaponizing government against political foes.

The RINOs are not any better. (You know who you are!)

Twain had something to say about this problem. And we love it.

Love it so much, in fact, that there’s a new shirt!

Even Mark Twain wanted to drain the swamp!

“Politicians are like diapers; they need to be changed often and for the same reason” – Mark Twain.

And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!


Show your elected officials all the ‘love’ they deserve. Get yours now!

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.

Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
