Well, that’s that.

Doop-de-doop, watchin’ CNN.

…Oh, okay; let’s see what they’re saying over at Talk Left.

I keep thinking of that line from Star Wars

when the Senate votes for Palpatine: “So this is how liberty dies. With thunderous applause.”

Speaking for me only.

That sharp, wet explosion you heard before was Larry Johnson’s spleen.

    Well, yeah, sure. Of course.

    Because replacing George fracking W Bush with Barack Obama will certainly sound the death knell for liberty in america. It’s sad, really. We have so cherished our liberty up until this moment, the horror and misery of having to watch it slip away at this late date is unimaginable…

    The Nomination vote was absolutely the most pathetic exhibition of political manipulation I’ve ever witnessed. I know that Hillary had no choice, her life is invested in the Democratic Party, but mine isn’t even though I’ve voted Dem for 40 years.

    So Barack made history today and for what it’s worth for AA’s as a minority race I appreciate the importance of that moment, but as an American who wants what is best for America and Americans, I am disappointed in the result.

    Know this all who care to listen, there are millions of us who were former Dems who will never again bow at the altar of the DNC. We declared our independence from it’s corruption and we will vote our conscience in November. May the best MAN win!

    Well, I agree that hearing Larry Johnson’s spleen explode is pretty awesome. But what would be even more awesome would be if someone posted this link into his comments, along with the claim that it’s part of the stagecraft for the acceptance speech (it isn’t; it’s actually a travelling exhibit of AF1, but the photo caption and article don’t clarify that). Because if there’s anything more awesome than hearing Larry Johnson’s spleen explode, it would have to be watching Larry Johnson’s head explode.

    As a former supporter of HillDawg’s bid for Preznit and a huge fan of the Clintons (thorns and all) I am forced to ask…

    Is it worse to still be so damn bitter after her f-in’ A speech last night or is it worse to quote any Star Wars: Episode Blows film?

    I think the former, but the latter gets my pants antsy, too. I will get you George Lucas and your little hate crime that is Jar Jar Binks, too.

    The spam protection prevents me from accurately quoting McCain’s characterization of his wife. I’m eagerly anticipating her encomium to Maverick McStraightTalk as a contrast to Michelle Obama’s speech; nothing says “regular guy you should vote for” like a little verbal abuse of the wife followed by her telling you what great guy he is.

    After he exits the stage, he’ll appear in the doorway of the faux aircraft, and while tossing effigies of Bush and Cheney from the door, will shout, “now get these motherf***ing snakes off my motherf***ing plane!!! And bring me some more iced tea, motherf***er!!!”

    Now that they couldn’t pull that off, they are merely trying to sow disunity. And of course, that’s the narrative most interesting to the press.

    Personally I think this post is sadder.

    I saw the photo of the different colored pantsuits that her aides were holding by the podium. They were trying to decide which color she should wear for her speech at the Democratic National Convention. I think there were five to choose from. All I know is that I was hoping she would pick orange. It looked good with the background and I knew what the color orange would signify.

    [snip]…

    Orange is the symbolic color of the Ukrainian Revolutionaries who protested the “selection” of the President in a rigged election. There was massive corruption, voter intimidation and direct electoral fraud.

    Actually the orange pantsuit was supposed to represent the orange jumpsuit worn by prisoners, because Obama has literally IMPRISONED Hillary by not tapping her to be VP.

    He should have tapped her! Why didn’t he tap that?

    I have voted Democrat in every election since 1912 (even Dukakis!) but no way am I voting for that untested Obama. Instead I will vote for John McCane, even though he is completely batshit insane and wants to invade Iran, Ireland and the Isle of Man, because he is at least white and jowly like Hillary.

    Hey, if the press wants to spread John McPOW luvs Hillary, I take back 25% of the nasty things I’ve said about it. I’ve already had to take back 30% because their constant harping on the poor wittle PUMAs has Camp McLittlePinkHouses spending money on ads to reach out to a small but incredibly noisy group of voters. Did you catch Rudi NounVerb911 talking about how Hillary was “dissed” by the Democrats? Meanwhile, the average Republican voter loathes Hillary with the heat of a thousand wet starts. Sweeeet!

    Yeah, maybe some of the PUMAs are Repubs, some are just schmucks (‘cos the GOP doesn’t have all of them), but part of me half hopes this is an elaborate game designed to send McPOW chasing after imaginary voters.

Hillary never should have started that shit and yeah, great she’s doing what she can to plug up that mess but this was all so extremely unnecessary.

    You know when the optimum moment to pull the plug was? Remember when she was headed for the Kentucky primary and the Derby was coming up and she said “I’d put money on the philly”. Then the Philly came in seconds and broke her ankles and got euthanized right there on the track? That’s the moment you can look around at everyone and say “You know what, I’m outta here, that’s bad juju or God speaking to me or something, but I’m out”.

They must’ve gotten a suitcase of leftovers from Limbaugh’s Oxy stash, because this grade of stupid isn’t normally available over-the-counter.

    1) My candidate did not get the nomination.

    2) My candidate did not get the nomination because the system is corrupt/biased against women.

    Therefore;

    3) I will participate in the corrupt system by voting for a proto-fascist, anti-woman, intellectual pygmy who doesn’t care about unleashing the biggest war in the history of everything because he will be safely in his bunker shouting at his wife.

    Really, I don’t know what world The Truth lives in. Michelle Obama disappeared from the public view? Umm when?
    Try a google News search for “Michelle Obama”. Then try one for “Cindy McCain”. Then try one for “Laura Bush”. One of those three people have been in the news more than twice as much as the other two combined…

    Or maybe Troofy meant that Team Obama’s been hiding Michelle in order to reprogram her as a Stepford Wife.
    She’s been pretty prominent this month (something about a convention), and is on the cover of the September Ebony (incidentally, a great cover – and by itself shows the lie in the Truth’s narrative – that’s no Stepford wife on that cover) and Radar (another non-domestic Michelle cover).
    The Obamas were on the cover of the June 30 Us.
    Her guest hosting the View was in June.
    Big stories in Newsweek in February and TIME in May.
    Interviews with Larry King, Katie Couric and Soledad O’Brien in February
    On Good Morning America in May.
    Olberman in June.
    This isn’t counting campaign events such as the April appearance at CMU. This is what’s squeezed in while she isn’t on the trail. And I’m sure I missed a bunch.

    Maybe Troofy meant – well there’s not a lot of Michelle in the media for July. You mean when the Obama’s were vacationing in exotic Hawai’i?

    It’s pretty amazing how stupid he is.

    I just returned from the party on the other side of downtown Denver; you know, the one with Nader, Sheehan, etc. I didn’t stay for the whole thing since I went with a parking meter after refusing to pay the military-industrial-UniversityofDenver complex a stunning $10 to park. Fascists.

    The intro band was appropriately angry, and the pseudo-Alan Ginsberg poet that I couldn’t understand was entertaining in a timewarpy sort of way. There was a long video of the history of St. Ralph to fill the dead air, which amazingly left off with what seemed to me like a fairly obvious indictment of Ralph for the spoiler role of 2000; weird, that. And the disco played after the video and before the live speakers was even stranger, especially after the loud and rangy intro band (named Pee Pee, by the way). I left after Cindy Sheehan spoke, and in some ways it was telling that the loudest applause up to that point was for Rosa Clemente saying that people shouldn’t get out of college with $100,000 in school loan debt. Given that The U of Denver is a really expensive private school, I was rather amused.

    And then there was … Aw F*uck it; I can’t keep making fun since the saddest thing for me is I agreed with everything they said there and still I know I will vote for Obama because I am old enough to accept both Mikey’s prognosis and the Lesser of Two Evils approach now. Bless ‘em all for their idealism; I’m just not there anymore. And two words: Supreme Court.

    Yay! Cigarskunk makes a triumphal reappearance to the S,N! comment threads!

    I too clicked on the link over to the PUMA page … reminds me of the early AOL chatroom phenomenon. Where there were all these chatrooms that allegedly had “hot lesbian chat.” Friend of mine who worked at AOL told me that when you ran down the handles to the userids to the people who were actually in the chatroom, it was actually a whole buncha desperate, pervy loser dudes in their basements typing stupid, inane messages to a buncha other desperate, pervy loser dudes. No actual lesbians really went into those chatrooms, or if they did, they quickly exited, weirded out by the level of disconnection from reality – the fact that real, live LGBT folks *never* talked to each other that way, and that the fantasies they were purveying on each other were not things that really interested anyone other than pudgy midwestern paste-eaters living in their mom’s basement.

    Pretty much the same scene over at PUMA HQ. Probably the same people behind the curtain, come to think of it…

    And thus we come full circle to Cigarskunk, which is the mark of real, talented snarkcommentry.

    If you get a million college students to register to vote, the Republicans will make them all share one fuking voting machine. If you sign up a million poor people to vote, the Republicans will threaten them with the police.

    If your candidate is poor, he can’t even get into the race. If he’s rich, then he’s a la-di-da prima donna hypocrite elitist who DEMANDS hard to find beverages. If he has a lot of accomplishments, then he’s liar and a braggart. If not, then he’s too inexperienced. If he doesn’t speak to huge crowds, then HA! HA! HA! he’s a dork and everybody hates him! If he speaks to huge crowds, then he thinks he’s god.

    Hillary got a small taste of that, and damn, if her supporters haven’t acted like big babies about it. I can’t see how they’d expect to whine and cry themselves into a November win.
