The Grand Old Party. Republicans. The party of Lincoln.
Now the party of Elmer Fudd. THIS IS NOT A JOKE.
Elmer Fudd - now otherwise know as Mitt Romey - takes center stage. Elmer is a fictional cartoon character and one of the most famous Looney Tunes characters, and the de facto archenemy of Bugs Bunny.
Now Elmer takes on the President of the United States of America. "Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits."
Personally I think Elmer looks more like Paul "P90X" Ryan.
Before you hate me, I didn't say Mitt or Paul was Elmer Fudd. No, Rush Limbaugh endorsed cartoon character Elmer Fudd to replace Mitt Romney as the Republican nominee for president. No joke! Rush did this on the radio Sept. 10, 2012.
But I think Rush may be on to something. In "Hare Brush", it is revealed that he (Elmer ) is a millionaire and owns a mansion and a yacht.
At one time, the Republican Party was the party of Lincoln. Now, the de-facto head of the Republican Party says that they don't care if their candidate is Elmer Fudd, so long as they defeat Obama.
I think they got their wish!! Elmer was usually cast as a hapless big-game hunter, armed with a double-barreled shotgun (albeit one which could be fired much more than twice without being reloaded - the Ultimate Clint Eastwood wet dream) and creeping through the woods "hunting wabbits". In a few cartoons, though, he assumed a completely different persona—a wealthy industrialist type; occupying a luxurious penthouse.
Seriously, I don't make these things up. Rush has called Mitt, Elmer Fudd, who was shown as a wealthy industrialist.
Although it was usually Porky Pig who brought the WB cartoons to a close with his stuttering, "That's all, folks!", Bugs would occasionally appear, bursting through a drum just as Porky did, but munching a carrot and saying in his Bronx-Brooklyn accent, "And dat's de end!"
