Saxby Chambliss Thinks Georgia Looks Like *This*

by Jim Newell

Georgia slaveowner Sen. Saxby Chambliss recently participated in this thing from National Geographic, which “invited all 100 U.S. Senators to draw a map of their home state from memory and to label at least three important places.” Most of the participating Senators sketched their states admirably. Chambliss, meanwhile, drew Mississippi, but with more saw teeth on the borders (to keep the Africans out) and a rectangle called “mountains.” This is truly catastrophic. [National Geographic]

Apparently, in Georgia, mountains are rectangular.

trondant November 19, 2009 at 2:37 pm

The saw teeth to the east are to keep out people from the Bad Carolina. Sadly, they don’t work all that well.

Saxby Chambliss: putting the ‘tain’ in ‘taint’!

Extemporanus November 19, 2009 at 2:38 pm

If you think that’s bad, you should see Max Cleland’s drawing.

Click November 19, 2009 at 2:38 pm

Looks like a retarded Christmas tree signed by a shit-faced Santa.

What Fresh Hell is This? November 19, 2009 at 2:38 pm

Point your little sharp draft-dodging teeth another way, you moran.

el donaldo November 19, 2009 at 2:38 pm

Is that Georgia, or a Christmas Tree? You mock Saxby Chambliss’s Christian faith, you godless liberal heathen? WAR ON CHRISTMAS!!!!1!!!

4tehlulz November 19, 2009 at 2:38 pm

Also, why does Georgia have a square dick dangling from it?

Cicada November 19, 2009 at 2:39 pm

It appears that Saxby’s Georgia is also sucking in it’s gut. This is an obvious pander to his beer-gutted and Spanx-wrapped constituency. Well played, sir, well played.

Oldskool November 19, 2009 at 2:39 pm

He must go shopping with Charlene.

[re=462721]user-of-owls[/re]: Damn, I was just about to add that, with a “more” in front.

The ‘S‘ in his signature sure is spiffy though!

ManchuCandidate November 19, 2009 at 2:41 pm

Could have been worse. Orly Taintz claims that Barry drew a map of Kenya.

What Fresh Hell is This? November 19, 2009 at 2:41 pm

[re=462729]4tehlulz[/re]: Georgia’s dick that it tries to stick into Florida is actually small and atrophied.

chascates November 19, 2009 at 2:41 pm

Can we see the one for Alaska?

Blue_in_VA November 19, 2009 at 2:41 pm

Al Franken is such a goddamn lovable geography nerd. His drawing pwns all the other lame-o Senators. Hell, he even used annotations, and included the border states.

El Pinche November 19, 2009 at 2:42 pm

On word Sax, Al Franken. He can draw all of them, BIATCH!

CrunchyKnee November 19, 2009 at 2:43 pm

One would think that SkoalRebel’s house would have made the map, at least, also, too.

Blue_in_VA November 19, 2009 at 2:45 pm

Also. Susan Collins clearly cheated. That bitch ain’t free form.

Monsieur Grumpe November 19, 2009 at 2:45 pm

One of the few times it’s good to be from Wyoming.

Jim89048 November 19, 2009 at 2:45 pm

Franken coulda made a mint selling his own drawings.

hockeymom November 19, 2009 at 2:46 pm

Franken’s was the best….Enzi’s was the worst. He drew a square.
The Senator from Idaho was enthusiastic about his state, but gets minus points for penmanship.

jmfleetwood November 19, 2009 at 2:46 pm

Looks more like Mississippi, hmmm.

you cannot be serious November 19, 2009 at 2:47 pm

Will Colorado and Wyoming get dangling participles too?

glamourdammerung November 19, 2009 at 2:48 pm

[re=462723]Extemporanus[/re]: Cleland did not get a drawing only active senators were invited and Georgia they kicked his coward ass to the curb to put in handsome war hero Saxby Chambliss.

ithasatilde November 19, 2009 at 2:49 pm

[re=462743]chascates[/re]: Actually, a great thing about the Alaska drawing is that Senator Icecube didn’t even label any important places– National Geographic had to pick names out of a hat and pray “Wasilla” didn’t come up.

shortsshortsshorts November 19, 2009 at 2:49 pm

RAARRR. Mississippi is like a shark. It bites.

shortsshortsshorts November 19, 2009 at 2:49 pm

GEORGIA, SHORTS. GEORGIA… I AM SO CONFUSED RIGHT NOW.

glamourdammerung November 19, 2009 at 2:49 pm

Also, I think the drawing is supposed to be a death panel.

magic titty November 19, 2009 at 2:50 pm

[re=462758]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Why am I still laughing at this?

Godot November 19, 2009 at 2:51 pm

[re=462767]ithasatilde[/re]: He did mark off three places, he just didn’t label them. Which is a style I can appreciate.

“Hey, I said this shit was notable. You callin’ me a liar? Fuck you!”

Terry November 19, 2009 at 2:51 pm

Did you follow the link? I think Susan Collins had a intern trace Maine for her and she just labelled it.

Cicada November 19, 2009 at 2:52 pm

[re=462758]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: I can’t believe Enzi got full credit for that drawing. He didn’t even bother to draw the borders of the state, just some weird squiggles for Yellowstone and Devil’s Tower.

C-, at best.

Cape Clod November 19, 2009 at 2:52 pm

Chambliss has better things to do with his hands. Like feeling up his preteen grandaughter in campaign commercials.

JMP November 19, 2009 at 2:53 pm

After two breast posts in a row,we get this sketch? Not that there is anything wrong with the post, but I was hoping for more breasts.

pampl November 19, 2009 at 2:53 pm

Holy shit, Idaho needs some ritalin

chascates November 19, 2009 at 2:55 pm

Wyoming is easy enough John Cornyn could have drawn it.

Al Keiderman November 19, 2009 at 2:55 pm

“Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see

Oh Georgia, Georgia”

You think there’s too much jaggedy in Chambliss’ map? Wait til you get a load of West Virginia as interpreted by Robert Byrd.

Mr Blifil November 19, 2009 at 2:58 pm

I was expecting more Great Monuments of the Confederacy.

liquiddaddy November 19, 2009 at 2:58 pm

[re=462740]magic titty[/re]: His signature looks like all the nice lady elementary school teacher’s sig’s I ever saw. Why does he write like a girl?

Flanders November 19, 2009 at 2:58 pm

[re=462743]chascates[/re]: It wasn’t bad, actually. My favorite in terms of technical correctness was Wyoming.

Zadig November 19, 2009 at 2:58 pm

[re=462775]Cicada[/re]: No, he drew the borders all right. It’s just that the borders are literally a rectangle.

Blanche Lincoln has not made up her mind yet whether or not she’s going to draw a map of Arkansas or support a cartographic filibuster instead.

AnnieGetYourFun November 19, 2009 at 3:15 pm

Of coruse fucking Al Franken would go and draw partial borders for surrounding states as well. Show off.

Extemporanus November 19, 2009 at 3:18 pm

[re=462765]glamourdammerung[/re]: I know.

I was making an insensitive reference to the fact that he’s a Chambliss-beaten triple amputee with a terrible eye for art.

norbizness November 19, 2009 at 3:18 pm

Don’t know much about history
Don’t know much about geography
The devil done wrote those science books
And don’t even get me started on that French I took

But I do know that Jesus is Lord
Actual facts just get me bored
And that’s why I’m the wonderful GOP.

freppish November 19, 2009 at 3:18 pm

Wyoming wins, he just drew a box with yellowstone, devils tower, and some other park, no cities listed because well, who can name a city in Wyoming?

Dangerous November 19, 2009 at 3:19 pm

Actually, it looks like a hybrid of Georgia and Mississippi. He got the left (west) side of Georgia correct (ironically), but the right side is a mess with the bump in the wrong place, but it’s also wrong for Mississippi.

There are lots of better reasons to slam Saxby Chambliss than his weak drawing ability.

Well, he is related to Robert Chambliss of Mississippi. so not surprised at all. ;)

Enzi seems to have used a stencil to draw a perfect square for Wyoming; but he did a nice sketch of the mountain from Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which is awesome.

the problem child November 19, 2009 at 4:06 pm

I think Dick Durbin should get points for being cute about his three places.

Extemporanus November 19, 2009 at 4:16 pm

[re=462904]the problem child[/re]: Maybe that’s because there are over 40 different words for each of them.

Also, did they really have to use red dots? It makes the U.S. look like an albino Biggie Smalls.

Johnny Isakson’s map of Georgia — actually worse than Chambliss doodle.

For the record, the other Senator from Georgia also seems to think that he lives in Mississippi.

Tundra Grifter November 19, 2009 at 4:41 pm

Just who the heck does National Geographic think it is, Katie Couric? Going out and asking fact-based questions! De nerve!

However – neither Senator from Colorado could draw a square?

Wow!

saggyboobedhag November 19, 2009 at 4:46 pm

His “mountains” rectangle excludes the part of Georgia where Deliverance was filmed. Hmmmmm.
