Clowngress (clown + Congress)

"Clowngress” (clown + Congress) is a derogatory nickname for the U.S. Congress—although some might jokingly say it’s an insult to honorable clowning profession. “In the corridors of Clongresss” was a caption to a Gary Larson’s comic strip, The Far Side, on January 14, 1992.

Similar terms include “clowndidate" (clown + candidate), “clowncil" (clown + council) and “clownigarch" (clown + oligarch).

I hereby resolve to only refer to Congress as “Clowngress”, since they’re a huge joke.

No more predation and killing by the biggest government on the face of the earth? We should be so lucky. Despite the lying claims coming from Clowngress and the media, the Pentagram will bomb, the drones will blow up, NSA will spy, the FBI will spy, the CIA will spy and assassinate–go down the rest of the list of the alphabet from Hell.
