Rethuglican National Convention in Pictures, Part Deux

There was much excitement behind the scenes at the Rethuglican Convention! There was a lot of planning going on!


All of Captain Underpants’s lobbyists friends and advisers were there, including Karl Rove, Phil Gramm (who kept his hands over his ears, lest there be any whining! πŸ˜† ), Randy Scheunemann, Joe McLieberman, Nicolle “the media sucks” Wallace, Lindsey-poo, and Charlie Black. Captain Underpants snoozes in the background until they wake him up to tell him what he honestly and truly thinks.

There were lots of luminaries of the Rethuglican party there, including the lovely ladies….


…Barbara Let ’em eat cake Bush, Pickles Laura Bush, Meg Whitman, and Carly Fiorina.

Oops! How could I forget this lovely lady, Roberta Underpants….


They didn’t let Roberta speak, except on film, where they could edit her, in case she made disparaging remarks about Mormons or something that might embarrass the party.

Captain Underpants’s former rivals for the nomination were there to suck up, because they had no choice if they ever want to run for anything again support their good friend, Captain Underpants…


…including Sam Brownback, Grampa Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney, Rudy 9/11 Giuliani, and Mike Huckabee. (Funny, Ron Paul wasn’t there. He used to hang out with the guys!)

His BFFs were warming up for their speeches backstage, too! No way would Joe McLiebercain and Lindsey-poo Graham miss a chance to blow Captain Underpants so they could get cabinet positions extol the virtues of their buddy!


I hope you are enjoying our look back on the Rethuglican National Convention and will come back tomorrow for the final installment.

    HAHAHA! I love these!

    That Babs, she could scare the bark off a tree. And I’m fairly certain that that image of Grahammsey will haunt me in my dreams. Of course, I do kind of deserve it for the song stuff yesterday….. πŸ˜‰

  2. gotta, i used that pic of bar once before, and i was so excited to use it again!
    i have to admit, i was cracking up while i was making that pic of lindsey-poo, and it cracks me up again every time i look at it.
    and, yes, you do deserve it! πŸ˜‰

    cool cartoons, nonnie. Looks like you have captured the character of all the major players. Why is it that folks with NRA caps and suspenders and pocket protectors never seem to have any trouble getting to the ballot box? And, where are they the rest of the time?

  4. cartoons? those are photos, fotc! where ya been, kiddo?

  5. nonnie
    you are my hero. that is about on par with DaVinci and Van Gogh…

    the Babs the Impaler picture is my favorite, but why is Cindy not attending the coronation of her fossillized husband?

    email me at
    i have a couple of ideas for you (since you are far better at this than i could ever be)

  16. jeb,
