From 48 To 52 (With Rolling Updates)




Posted at 22:07 by Gavin M.

we would love to see a group project where mccain supporters reached out to the obama folk (and others) in a gesture of reconciliation…

simple messages.

perhaps it is naive. the differences are real, i know. but we have to repair the damage done from this election cycle somehow…

the fringes (all of them) have been allowed to dominate our conversations for too long. to create a cycle of hate, ill-will and revenge.

it’s a tough and delicate challenge – if you want to try it – send a pic of you with a sign, or a vid, or anything to sadlyno.com

maybe it works, maybe not – i know it won’t speak to many : but i think we give it a whirl and decide for ourselves, yes?

    There were a couple 48 letters there, some quite nice, but not all. I swear there was another pre-accusing Obama voters of hypocrisy for when we inevitably crack down on dissent, but it seems to be gone? It struck me as pretty nasty but appears to be gone.

    There was, with a horribly-mangled picture of Reagan standing in front of a flag on the side. The lesson here is that, dipshit wingnuts aside, the Republicans have little to no investment in their candidate’s nasty campaign and are more than happy to see the Presidency filled by a decent, honest man who inspires so many of us.

    It’s especially big of them in light of the Schmidt strategy in the last few weeks being to incite a race war. They’re a lot better than their party.

    Sorry, folks. No frakkin’ sale. We remember “Jesusland.” And stuff like this. And if you have a few hours, scroll through Malkin’s “Bush Derangement Syndrome” archive. We remember everything – being called racist warmongers, Christianist nutbags, racists, and all the rest of the vitriol you folks threw at us in your “AAAHHH CHIMPY MCBUSHITLER HALLIBURTON IS THE EVILEST” stage of political development.

    You spent the last eight years engaged in a disgusting orgy of divisive political hatred and now you want to play nice and pretend we’re all united now? I for one am not going to treat President Obama the way you treated President Bush. That doesn’t mean, though, I’m going to just forgive and forget the fact that you’ve polluted the political landscape with your bile and patchouli-stanking spittle.

    In the spirit of putting the partisan politics of division behind us, I will do my best to show calm, poise and competence. I will be the model of civility. Here, let me try:

    I sorta think of Limpdick et cie as predatory lenders and most of the McCain voters, at least around where I live, as their victims.

    Most of them are actually pretty okay neighbors that have been misled into being deathly afraid of what “Obama’s gonna do!!!” So, in a sense, I want Limpdick and Coultergeist and the rest to ramp up the shrieking and raise the Obama terror alert to Nuclear Red so that when Obama and the Dem Congress actually start fixing things and doing other practical stuff instead of going Black Panther Commie, these assclowns will lose all their credibility forever.

    Of course, once the vast majority of people stop taking them seriously, wtf will I do with my free time?

Since of course none of that really happened, I can see I was way out of line. I totally apologize.

  83. Dragon-King Wangchuck said,

    MzNicky,

    Do you also not allow MrNicky out while not wearing a shirt, or wearing a mesh muscle shirt? Or does he wear large sizes due to being large for reasons other than fat?

    Anyways, let me reiterate here, that third picture? I’m not saying she’s hot, but for someone of that weight to pose in that manner, suggests a comfort level with her own body that is… okay, it’s hot. There I said it – the fat chick is hot. I think she should wear tube tops all she wants. But not with sweat pants – that fucking crosses the line.

    D-K W: The Spouse chooses his attire wisely. He is 6’3 and, ahem, big-boned, and like many of us old Boomer geezers he carries more body weight than he needs to. Should he ever head out the door in a mesh muscle shirt, which he never would, I’d suggest he reconsider.

    There are certainly a large number of McCain voters that I’m more than willing to talk to/work with/whatever. I may not understand their vote, but that alone is hardly a reason to excommunicate them. After decades of bombardment by the right-wing radio and pundit stream of uselessness, one cannot entirely begrudge another’s having swallowed a certain amount of bullshit. With them, “go along, get along” is not out of the question. We can work out differences.

    Those are the relatively benign ones, though. To the extremist fuckwits who are the driving force of “Movement Conservatism”, I say “Vigorously fuck yourselves with sharp and rusty farm implements.” Not that those twits are even for a moment thinking about moving their positions closer to the majority and working together as a country anyway. They have proven again and again that they are quite incapable of that. They would much rather kneecap democracy and try to sow enough division so that they can weasel some small splinter of their agenda in. Fuck ‘em.

I’m funny looking and homely – think Shemp Howard with Willie Nelson’s hair – so it’s a matter of time until I scroll down one of these things and, sure enough, it’s me back when I still drank doing something stupid. Also, it’s entirely possible I know that big dude at the computer in that last picture. I’ve know a dozen guys who look like that, all of whom work on computers. It’s kind of unsettling to think about, actually.

    Bush Derangement Syndrome has a silver lining: it, along with the other bits of grand lustrative intellectual violence between 9/11 and Iraq, basically made it so that almost nobody who personally propagandized for Bush will ever be able to escape the taint of that by claiming to be among his critics. Nobody who comfortably fit into the political establishment even started criticizing our Dear Leader until a few years ago.

    The fact is, you liberals…

    Sorry, I just couldn’t resist. But anyway, I feel as though I must congradulate y’all on your victory. You’ve been looking foward to this moment for along time. The only thing I can imagine would make me this happy was if Tom Tancredo or Duncan Hunter were elected President.

    But anyway, enough with the pleasentries, I’ll get down to business. Your victory is going to be short lived. Remember what happened in 1994, the Contract with America, and subsequent Republican takeover of both Houses of Congress? Well, the leader of that movement, the highly intelligent and articulate Newt Gingrich, is seriously considering running for the Chairmanship of the Republican National Committee.

    A solid conservative like Newt Gingrich, who is highly intelligent and able to articulate conservative principles to average people is just the man who can revitilize the conservative base. He’s tough and not one to reach across the aisle to compromise, which has been President Bush’s downfall. I know, I know, you say he has alot of bagage. Well, to that I say, it doesn’t matter one bit. As Chairman of the Republican National Committee, he’ll be completely out of the public spotlight. But, he’ll be behind the scenes making all of the key decisions and reformng the Republican Party platform, to turn the Republican Party back into the Conservative Organization it was during the Reagan years.

    A tough, conservative of principle, like Newt Gingrich, will systematically weed out, all of the Rinos and compromisers from the Republican Party leadership. Here is a man of principle, who will not compromise on the issue of illegal immigration, in order to be more “bipartisan”, which was Bush’s reason for the thankfully failed, comprehensive immigration reform.

    With a tough, articulate, conservative like Newt Gingrich at the helm, expect a Republican landslide in 2010.

    I’d have to agree – there’s quite a lot of folks who voted GOP on Tuesday that are far better than their ticket is … people who sincerely WANTED to vote for Obama, but dreaded the peer-group heat or familial static that they knew would be their lot if they “let the others down” … & for some, voting against the ruling party in a time of war is tantamount to sedition in their minds – but even if they voted poorly or misunderstood the real issues, their hearts were & are in the right place.

    However, there are also those OTHER folks – the ones that make this site such a goldmine of lulz – to wit:

    337 Oh, thank goodness!

    The very thought of you actually acting your age, just because the other side spanked you thoroughly by running on all those goofy “issues” – let alone your having the intelligence or maturity to roll up your sleeves & do your part to help your country out, right at the moment in history when it needs you the most – is simply beyond the pale … if this site were to suddenly develop a lucid POV, a sense of fairness, or a soul, its entertainment-value would drop like a stone in a pond.

    You’ve been bringing tears of laughter to the faces of those of us with three-digit IQs for so long now already – you OWE it to us to keep up the, er, “standards” that’ve made you what you are: a solid-gold punchline to an ongoing joke.

    Bless you – & all the OTHER thoroughly-discredited myopic pouty-baby “poor losers” like you – who will never never NEVER get over being ass-whupped by the black guy with a funny name … I speak for many when I say I’m rubbing my hands with glee in anticipation of the next four years of ignorance, self-righteous folly & reptilian spite that this particular cul-de-sac of Wingnut County has become famous for.

    Oops! Did I say “four years?” Silly me! I meant to say “at LEAST eight years” – my bad.

    I don’t know. If they actually “got it”, they would be, by necessity, a VERY different party. Maybe even one that could conduct reasonable discourse about the governance of a nation, rather than merely trying to bludgeon anyone they can label as “different” in some sort of never ending power grab. If they were capable of “getting it”, we might actually have worthy adversaries with whom we disagree on issues but could come to compromises with, rather than a bunch of WATBs that think “bipartisanship” = “date rape” with them on top.

    If they really “got it”, I think it might be okay. Of course, they’d still never win, because part of “getting it” would be jettisoning the solid one third to one half of their party that votes hate and only hate. Unfortunately, they need those horrible fools, and both party and fools know it.

    I don’t think we have to worry about them “getting it” for quite some time.

    Anyway, it’s not like “50 impossible things before breakfast” is not a bad idea, mikey. Depends on the mind that’s thinking them.

    Like, I think of things like space cars that run on hydrogen, world peace, and the world subsisting on free-range meat at a very reasonable price – not the manufactured, caged-in-shit animals. I’m a Wisconsin gal; I grew up in the city, the city being Milwaukee…and we all have a healthy respect for cows, sheep, and pigs. To put them through torture is to diminish us; cows may be stupid, but they still have a sense. Same with pigs and anything else that’s living. You’d find, in my small corner of our state, the third most progressive municipality next to the two in Madison, a place where we don’t really care who the fuck you are, as long you contribute to our well-being. And the wingnuts are laid bare; the “jewish” thing leaks through and through…that to be mindful of the earth, “kosher” in a way, is hostile to the “christian” way of life. I am a Christian, and their words hurt me too…enough to make me atheist. I don’t believe that such a god could exist without hurting those would go against his word, but they do, therefore…I cannot believe in God, proper. It’s a struggle all the time. But you know what? Well raised cows and pigs are damn tasty, and as long as I have a doting parent and a maiden aunt, I will have free range food. For that, I am grateful. And it’s awesomeness in my state, that we have plenty of organic options. Now if I could only move to Chicago without becoming a comptroller…

    I’ve wanted since election night to go kick them in the side of the head. I did it the day after the election, I ran over to riverdaughters place and called them a bunch of useless retards. It’s really unsatisfying.

    I wanted to hate on them because they imagined a world where they were dealmakers. The whole idea was that they would monkey-wrench the thing for McCain. That Epic Failed. What they were was a bunch of useless nothing. So I wanted to go tell them that. They already knew it anyway. They were sack-cloth and ashes before I’d got there.

    I’ve got no idea what to do with the PUMA’s. They are too stupid to be educated, that’s just a fucking fact. Hating on them started to feel like hating on the Short Bus crowd at high school.

    And just because the idiot brought up Indiana, I was part of Team Blitz Indiana Obama ’08. I worked Lake County. The entire place was canvased. Every single house. If you were registered to vote we got you. The Obama database was synched with the secretary of state and if you were supposed to vote Obama we checked it off and if you hadn’t on election day someone was at your house. I had a campaign cell phone and if someone hadn’t voted who was registered and we found them we called in a ride that minute. It reached 100% of registered voters in Lake County.

    Obama winning there was a tour de force that I really hope isn’t lost.

    We are slapped with too many stereotypes and have been defeated by a social movement. It is NOT socially acceptable to be young, educated, urban and Republican. If the party is going to succeed, that HAS to change. Build an exciting, inspiring and charismatic party that captures young hearts and minds and reminds them why it’s “cool” to be Republican and people can proudly say we are Republican AND educated AND informed AND caring AND diverse AND forward-thinking.

    Bwahahaha. You could probably make shit like this up, but it wouldn’t be as entertaining.

    Adopt the message “reach for the stars”
    President-elect Obama has made it clear in his policies that he sees the government as our babysitter, and he intends to limit how far some of us can go, believing it patriotic for us to spread our success around.

    The RNC should adopt a message of individual responsibility. It’s up to you whether you succeed or not, and we think you should reach for the stars. As part of that, the platform should emphasize ideas that let people succeed–low taxes, quality education, and family values (even something as simple as asking people to have dinner with their family at least once a week).

    Good Lord. It’s kind of hard to tell just what is trolling and what is serious over there.

    I mean, in the stop allowing religious bigotry in the party thread, we have,

    After Palin gets a little coaching on national politics and foreign policy, she can beat that Muslim exorcist Jindal and Pawlenty who is too boring. I refuse to vote for Mormons like Romney. Sarah Palin is a quick study. You can tell she’s smart. She’ll be the next Reagan. Reagan didn’t know a lot and was governor for few years but he was coached and he was a transformational president.

    Which is just amazing, and we have,

    I could not disagree more. Religious bigotry is one of the Republican Party’s greatest strengths — it’s just that we need to focus the bigotry outwards. The one silver lining in the 2008 election was the passage of Proposition 8 in California — and it was accomplished with the help of big money from bigoted Mormons. We know they’re going to hell, and who cares, as long as they hate teh gay???

    Which is clearly trolling, but without the “teh gay”, it might pass.

    Then we get more real winners,

    Mormonism is a nothing but a sentimental concoction based on teachings of Joseph Smith late 1800′s then Brigham Young perpetuated the farce. 75% King James Bible and 25% gibberish nonsensical sentiment should be recognized as a fools faith. Baptism of the dead, the sealing of the family if you can explain this belief system using rational logic I’ll eat my hat! As they say ignorance is bliss!

    S.O.P. for Republicans.
    Via thinkprogress,

    BOZELL: Conservatives didn’t play a role in this campaign. This was a moderate Republican against a liberal, left-wing Democrat. And the left-wing Democrat beat the moderate Republican. … If you look at the exit polls this year, you’ll find two fascinating results. Number one: This country remains every bit as center-right as it has for a generation.

    HEMMER: You don’t think that’s changed at all?

    BOZELL: No it hasn’t. … Number one is that the public is conservative; number two: Barack Obama won as a conservative. That means Barack Obama does not have the mandate to enact the progressive agenda he wants to enact.

    That sort of logical gyration deserves a place on the Olympics roster.

    With a tough, articulate, conservative like Newt Gingrich at the helm, expect a Republican landslide in 2010.

    Newt Gingrich? Would that be this Newt Gingrich?

    By 1998, Gingrich had become a highly visible and polarizing figure in the public’s eye … in 1997 a strong majority of Americans believed Gingrich should have been replaced as Speaker of the House, and he held an all-time low job approval rating of 28% … During this period, Gingrich focused on the perjury charges against Clinton as a unifying campaign theme in national Republican advertising. While Republicans believed this theme would ensure gains in the 1998 midterm elections, they instead lost five seats in the House — the worst performance in 64 years for a party that didn’t hold the presidency. Polls showed that Gingrich and the Republican Party’s attempt to remove President Clinton from office was widely unpopular among the American public.

    Gingrich … announced … that he would not only stand down as Speaker, but would leave the House as well. … he had lost control over his caucus long before the election, and it was possible that he would not have been reelected as Speaker in any case. [Wikipedia]

    I think there is a spoiled brat petulance about her . In her own words she was miffed with Couric because Couric was asking her questions instead of allowing the interview as a platform to attack Obama , she believes that the press calling her out on her attacks somehow violated her first amendment rights .
    Of course damning her damns McCain above all . Nobody pointed a gun at McCain’s head and asked him to select her .

    This isn’t actually a bad idea, if you leave out the fact that Republican attitudes and policies make it impossible. Sarah Palin’s nomination was the first step in how the clueless party elders go about handling an idea like this.

    This reminds me of my first real job– a t-shirt screenprinting factory. The company soon moved to a shiny new facility, but for some reason couldn’t get production back up to the levels at the old, run-down place despite having almost twice the machinery.

    One day, the management took each crew, one at a time, into a conference room and asked us what we thought the company could do to get the production numbers back up. I started looking through the classifieds the next day; they might as well have set up a neon sign over the entrance saying “WE’RE FUCKED AND WE DON’T HAVE A CLUE WHY”.

    (for the record, I thought the old facility had the machines so close together, we could see each other’s production numbers, and that led to a friendly, unofficial rivalry between crews. The new place had the machines so far apart and isolated, that sense of competition evaporated. Plus, the new machines sucked. That didn’t seem to register with the management drones, though. But I’m not sure how that works with the analogy I’m trying to make above.)
