The On-Crack Ass Clown for December, 2017

Well, we're down to the wire ... there are just two days left in 2017, and it's time to name our last Ass Clown awardee for the year. The distribution of Fridays in December has resulted in our need to name not two, but three award recipients, and so it is with the usual flatulent blare of trumpets that I announce

The On-Crack Ass Clown
December, 2017

and the award goes to

Counselor to the President
Kellyanne Conway

It's difficult to believe, and yet it's a measure of the craziness of the past year, that Kellyanne Conway has not received recognition as an Ass Clown awardee in 2017. Her shameless defense of the indefensible has been amazingly effective, and she was responsible for the entry into the Linguistic Hall of Shame of the term "alternative facts." Rising from humble beginnings, Ms Conway worked on a blueberry farm as a teen, won the New Jersey Blueberry Princess pageant in 1982, graduated from St. Joseph's High School in 1985, and then attended Trinity College in Washington, D.C., where she earned a degree in political science. She earned her law degree with honors at George Washington University Law School in 1992. After endorsing Texas Senator Ted Cruz in the GOP presidential primaries in 2016, she switched her allegiance to Donald Trump, going on to become his campaign manager after the resignation of Paul Manafort.

After the election, Ms Conway moved to the West Wing as "Counselor to the President," serving as a fiery spokesperson and aggressive defender of the Trump administration and its policies, never giving an inch in debates even when confronted with clear evidence rebutting her positions and assertions.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Readers, Kellyanne Conway - Secret Service codename "Blueberry" - is named as our final awardee for 2017 - the On-Crack Ass Clown for December. All I can say is, "oy."

Have a good day, and be sure to come back tomorrow for Cartoon Saturday. More thoughts then.


UPDATE - Here are the current standings in the Ass Clown of the Year competition. Relative positions are unchanged from the last update, although the numbers of votes for each candidate have continued to climb:

Roy Mooore would have been a better choice.

She should also get the too much time in the sun award.

I've redirected my 10 daily votes to The GOP Congressional Majority.

Mariette said...

I vote for Vladimir Putain.

She certainly is worthy. It is amazing that she hasn't been awarded before now. I think "the usual flatulent blare of trumpets" is perfect.

Why does AC of the Year have to be such a hard choice?! The Congressional Majority gets 10 votes for their tax bill and their baseline disastrous policies. Trump still gets 5 votes, from my neighbors.
