This cracked me up

Awesome Ronald Reagan on a Velociraptor! Just to cheer up my dispirited conservative readers on the Fourth of July.  In fact, I think all Americans and, indeed, all the world can only stand back in amazed wonder. This doesn’t even need consummate Vs or a beefy arm.

That’s *my* kind of Reptile Republican!

  • David K. Monroe

    Sweet! But not quite as cool as George Washington on a Tyrannosaurus!

    The sword makes it!

  • JB
  • Mark S. (not for Shea)

    I still prefer Chewbacca on a giant squirrel fighting Nazis. That’s the candidate who has my vote.

    Now we all know who to write in this November.

    • ivan_the_mad

      Trogdor the Burninator, that is. But I hear hear Awesome Ronald Reagan on a Velociraptor is being vetted for VP.

    Reagan… too liberal for me.

  • Dave G.

    Reminds me of the old Genesis video for “Land of Confusion.”

    • Ted Seeber

      That was actually a part of a British show that never quite made it here called Spitting Image; the only three episodes I’ve ever seen were the “Land of Confusion” video, and two episodes centered on the White House that were marketed on NBC as “The Ronnie and Nancy Show”. From Wikipedia, most of the rest of the episodes (also done in a mix of claymation and muppets) were more about Margaret Thatcher (Reagan with a Blue Dress, Blue Dress, Blue Dress, Reagan with a Blue Dress on) and the Royal Family.

      Hmm…I wonder if it’s available on Youtube now?

    It’s always a good day when there is a Trogdor reference.

    • Nate

      Indeed. Just in time for the Fourth. God Bless America.


      • Nate

        Holy cow. And Safari’s spell check corrected ‘burninating’ to ‘burnitating.’

        And I didn’t catch it. FAIL.

  • K T Cat

    The best thing is that the RPG is Soviet-made. I’ll bet he got that from the body of a dead commie.

    • Chris M

      Hey, if the RPG-7 is good enough for John Rambo, it’s good enough for Ronny Raygun!

    • ds

      I thought he sold all those to Iran.

  • Hezekiah Garret

    This is obviously Photoshopped!!!

    Dutch would have never lost his cowboy hat like that.

  • Kevin J. Bartell

    I’ve been following Jason’s work for a couple of years, now. Among other things, he’s also done Abraham Lincoln riding a grizzly bear, George Washington, Zombie-Hunter, and (my personal favorite) Teddy Roosevelt vs. Bigfoot. You can check him out here:

    Happy 4th!

  • Margaret

    I dunno, man. I think it could use a couple of spinity things… Happy 4th.

  • Qualis Rex

    LOL! This is hilarious! I just only recently discovered your blog, and as a very orthodox and traditional Catholic I appreciate how you keep the focus of church ideals without forcing them into a political box (i.e. if you are a REAL Catholic you MUST vote for whom and how WE tell you to!). Other mean-spirited blogs (not at all as “creative” as they think themselves to be *ahem*) are far less Catholic than they try to market themselves (i.e. putting a large picture of Our Savior on the front page does not excuse the racist comments and ad hominem attacks/lies that the hosts frequently resort to).

    In sum, keep up the good work/good fight. I always appreciate Catholic blogs who remind us that our souls depend on us being first and foremost Catholic before politics, national identity, etc.

  • Ryan M.

    The Gipper spent so much time and tax-payer’s money on “Star Wars”, when this picture makes it obvious that what the Cold War really needed was “Jurassic Park”…

    • Ted Seeber

      Star Wars (or at least Ronnie’s version, which was “spend lots of money on nothing to push the Soviet Union into an arms race for impossible weapons to bankrupt the communists” is about the only thing he accomplished that I agree with.

      Otherwise, in the spirit of Land of Confusion, may I present An Audience with Ronnie Reagan:

  • Qualis Rex

    @Ryan – I think I envision Reagan as more of Gandalf from “Lord of the Rings”; holding his scepter and resounding, “you shall not PASS…The Florida Wilderness Act of 1982″
