'Listen, whoever comes to you with this Barzini meeting, he's the traitor.'Barack Obama’s favorite movie is The Godfather, and today he gets to recreate the scene in which Abe Vigoda begs forgiveness for his crimes against the Family, and dashing young monster Michael Corleone offers exile in Las Vegas, but then has Vigoda savagely assassinated on the way to the airport. This will happen in Chicago today, basically, but clueless old McCain is being lured to Obama’s lair with false rumors of a cabinet appointment.

McCain is bringing worthless old fag Lindsey Graham to the meeting. Rahm Emanuel will be there to kill them both.

    But wait… Is Barry just gonna hires his frenemies? Are they not my frenemies too? Is Barry, therefore, my frenemy as well? A team of frenemies sounds like an episode of Degrassi, and definitely not change we need…

    It was Michael’s brother-in-law that was ‘offed’ in the car on his way to the airport and Las Vegas. Tessia (Abe V.) was outed as a traitor, telling Tom Hagen, “tell Michael, it was only business, I always liked him” and then asking Hagen to get him out of it.

    This makes Obama Michael Corleone and Joe Leiberman is Abe Vigoda (who is Jewish… a coincidence??? I think NOT)

  • Twenty dollars can buy many peanuts!

    Carlo Rizzi was the guy who Michael fake-offered exile in Vegas, but then had strangled by Clemenza in the car. Tom Hagen took care of the arrangements for Tessio (Vigoda).

  • Woodwards Friend

    You are confusing Vigoda with Michael’s son-in-law. That’s who was killed on the way to Vegas. Rahm Emanuel should probably avoid the front seat for a while.

  • The Pumpernickel
  • Woodwards Friend

    I mean brother-in-law.

  • WadISay

    To Barry, “having a sit-down” means meeting with. To McCain, it means a bowel movement.

  • GlennBecksTaint

    There really should be only one motto for this new administration:

    “What would Putin do?”

  • BitterDwarf

    There is absolutely nothing to be gained by appointing McCain to anything. All the Republicans hate him now, too, so it’s not like he’d bring any influence over them. I’m guessing both Mr. Grahm and walnuts have “accidents” soon after the meeting…

  • psychedelicSludge

    Obama/Rahm are classy and practical. They’ll hire McCain for the cabinet and just mail him a video of the Godfather.

  • Sassette

    This is the best story on today’s meeting that I have seen by about FIVE AND A HALF YEARS.

    Rahm just takes fingers. So do I.

    You know that picture of Walnuts catches him at his most dignified, I mean what would you look like if your butt bag blew up on stage of a Presidential debate. I think he held it together pretty good.

  • BigBrainOnBrad

    That was Gianni Russo as brother-in-law Carlo Rizzi that was killed in the car after being offered exile in Vegas. Abe Vigoda as Tessio asks Tom Hagen if he can get him off the hook “for old times sake” before going quietly to his presumed but unseen demise.

    What cabinet appointment would NUMBNUTZ be qualified for, anyway? Cabinet of Facial Contortions? Cabinet of Terrible Decisions and Erratic Behavior? Cabinet of Crashing Planes?

    How about instead we shove him in a cabinet and lock the doors… forever.

  • psychedelicSludge

    Honestly, McCain these days looks like there’s a psionic twin in there who’s about to bust through his abdomen and start giving him orders. Or was that an actual Wonkette story last week.

  • FreshCliches

    Next up, Palin pleads with Rahm:

    “It ain’t the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I’m smaaht! Not like everybody says… like dumb… I’m smaaht and I want respect!”

    Sarah, you’re nothing to us now.

    Obama To Leiberman: “Joe, your an older Senator, and I love you, but don’t ever take sides against the Party again”

    I want Obama to appoint Johnny-Mac to something. That way OUR governor can appoint our Sety of State Brewer to his seat, then SHE can take a post with the administration, making Terry Goddard, a dem, Governor. We need a Democrat for guv in this state to veto the shit out of moronic legislation.

    If Janet leaves Arizona with a republican governor and the republican legislature, we are FUCKED! We have wacko Repubs here…. make Sarah Palin seem sane.

    Arizona Republicans SUCK: We have John McCain.. you’ve heard of him…. and Jon Kyl who WANTS the auto industry to FAIL or at least go Chapter 11 to fuck over the unions and labor agreements. We had a legislator that proposed allowing guns in bars and another one that proposed allowing guns in schools. Janet N is the only person that has kept some dumbassed bills from becoming laws. She goes we are FUCKED!!

    She could be Secretary of Science czar.

  • Mustang

    Okay, this is all funny and ha ha and stuff. BUT WHAT IF HE AS REALLY GOING TO OFFER HIM A POST?

  • NavinJohnson

    So… if he appoints McNasty to SecDef, does Napolitano get to appoint the replacement? If so, this would be one of the most calculating and ballsy political maneuvers of my lifetime, muzzle another potential opponent and at the same time keep reforming the senate to his liking. You know that McNasty would kill for the opportunity to outrank his father and is just shortsighted and egomaniacal to take SecDef. Michael Corleone indeed.

    But let Obama find something else for the Mac, like King of Earmark Regulation..
    Then Janet Nepolitano will appoint a Az. Dem to the McCain seat in Congress.

    It was Carlo Rizzi who was strangled in the car. Tessio (Vigoda) never got a chance to talk to the Don. He was just driven away and we never knew how he got it. That would have been been a cool outcome for Walnuts.

  • problemwithcaring

    It’s a well-known political mythology that all the idiotic sex deviants that made careers off their fabricated moralistic outrage over Clinton, will slowly and publicly reap the same sexual humiliation and shame they joyously sowed.

    [re=178455]Doglessliberal[/re]: That’s great news! So AZ now has the oldest fuck ever to run for President, and the dumbest fuck in the Senate!!

    Folks, please, please PLEASE understand that not all of Arizona are dumb and/or old fuck Republicans. Please remember that there was a time when we sent honorable Republicans like Barry Goldwater (yes he was a conservative, but not mean, nasty, and dumb like our current senators) and great Democrats like Mo Udall.

    Arizona was once a great PROGRESSIVE state, not one full of fucking moronic arch conservative asshats.

  • azw88

    [re=178452]sati demise[/re]: AZ law requires Janet to appoint someone from the same party as the outgoing office holder. She could appoint AZ Sec of State Jan Brewer a Repub to fill McCain’s seat. She is next in line to be governor is Janet goes… That would make Terry Goddard, a Dem, next in line, and thus she could go off to DC to be AG or Supreme Court Justice…..

    Is Richardson “Fat Clemenza?”

  • thefrontpage

    The Vegas thing was actually offered to Michael’s sister’s husband Carlo, who, like Tessio, Abe Vigoda’s character, had betrayed the Corleones. Michael, to prevent Carlo from trying to flee or defend himself, actually gives Carlo a plane ticket to Vegas, tells him to go to Vegas, and tells him that he’s “out of the family business,” and, when Carlo tries to apologize, Michael cuts him off with a great, sneering, “Now get out of my sight.” Carlo is taken out to a car, and longtime family official Clemenza calmly says, “Hello, Carlo,” does that rope around the throat thing, and kills him right there in the car in the driveway. They don’t show Tessio getting it, but no one ever forgets Tessio, knowing that he’s about to be killed, looking dog-faced at Tom Hagen and begging, “Tom, can ya’ get me off the hook, for old-times sake?” And Tom says, “Sorry, Sally,” and that’s it for Tessio.
