what does it mean?
President Bush's solid victory in yesterday's election provoked a response from the Democratic Underground that I find typical of Leftist thinking:
I cannot possibly put into words how disappointed, angry, and perplexed I am right now. The reported results coming out of Florida and Ohio simply make no sense to me. I cannot comprehend how we could have such a massive increase in turnout and not win the election. To paraphrase that little weasel Tucker Carlson: You don't wait in line for five hours to vote for more of the same. Who knows, maybe some people really would wait in line for more of the same. But my impression is that something just stinks here. As EarlG told me this morning: The result is either massively fraudulent or deeply disturbing.
I vote for "deeply disturbing."
I sometimes don my Level-A Haz-Mat suit and wade into the DU for a few laughs. That place has more asswittery per square inch than any other blog on the planet, and the people posting there believe that they are brilliant and reflective of the mood across America. How could their candidate possibly lose the election unless the Republicans cheated?
The Democrats need to take a good look at that red state/ blue state map; then, think about the word "values." Mainstream America does not share the values (whatever the hell they are) of the Democrat party and I believe that fact cost the Dems this election.
I also believe that trotting out Michael Moore (okay... they didn't trot him... they ROLLED the fat bastard onto the stage) as a spokesman for the party was a mistake. Moore's hysterical antics in Florida didn't seem to help the cause. All Moore did was show people how anti-American lefties have become today.
You don't win back red states by having Bill Mahar read translated exerpts from Osama Bin Laden's latest video while the crowd cheers the anti-American screed and Maher says that he agrees with a lot of what Osama said. You WOULD, Bill.
Keep up the good work, Democrats. I don't want you running my country, and if you keep going the way you're going, I won't have to worry about it.
My favorite post at DU was:
I have a tent. I have a car.
I am going to Ohio.
Who is with me?
"You don't wait in line for five hours to vote for more of the same. "
Wrong!!!....fuckwit!! You do if you believe that the alternative is to dodge shrapnel and falling buildings due to terrorist explosives!! What Bush did was to attract every terrorist to Iraq, and engage them there, rather than here in the USA!! They're all in one place now, so we can kill them a lot easier than if we had to chase them all over California. You Dimocrats have the all the brains and logic of a brick! Indeed!!
You just said in those few words what millions of Americans know but cannot articulate as well as you did.
I think my husband put it best. You can walk into thte booth with every intention of doing one thing, but when it comes to putting pen to paper, you know what you have to do to live with yourself.
The REAL reason Kerry lost is his wife. Can you imagine her in the White House as First Lady after too many gin soaked raisins? No fucking way. I know folks who love Kerry and think he is the shiznit, but loathe his thing of a wife.
Mrs. Laura Bush on the other hand is classy, smart and just right for the job. George should give her a big ol hug and some serious cunnilingus for her getting him reelected.
Ha, I made myself giggle.
Well now we can all get back to just plain pissin and moaning. My biggest fear that Kerry would win and that weasel Edwards would be one heart beat from being president. Talking to a democrat is like trying to teach your dog not to eat turds, it is a lost cause.
Yeah, well now I have to deal with the weasel. He just bought a farm in Carrboro and he'll be moving there now that the Dem ticket bought the farm. I can't imagine running into that fucker at the grocery store or the local diner.
I'm a Buckeye and I waited in line to vote for W and it was damn well worth it! And never forget, that tubolard Michael Moore is a Wolverine!
That's why Laura always has that little "Mona Lisa Smile" FloridaBill.
For the first time in my life, I pushed the "straight ticket" button for the Republican slate.
I did not like doing that.
But the once great Democrat party has been taken over by its moonbat wing and they left me no choice.
Rob, I agree with everything you said in this post except for the last paragraph. I do not want the Democrats to keep on doing the stupid crap they've been doing these past 30 odd years. We need at least two good political parties in opposition to each other - one to champion the interests of business and the other to champion the interests of the common worker. (Note - That these interests are not mutually exclusive.) However, BOTH parties should champion the interests of the USA in the world at large.
My fervent prayer is that the Democrats learn from this thrashing and purge themselves of the traitors and lunatics in their midst. Perhaps then, we can reunite as a people and go back to a more sane and positive political atmosphere here in the USA.
Actually, that was my favorite as well, but by the time I went back to snag
I have a tent. I have a car.
I am going to Ohio.
Who is with me?
The discussion area was "protected".
I say to them, come the hell on up here. Don't stop until you get to the lake up north, or the state to our "east", because if you look at the map that shows the way the counties voted in Ohio you're not gonna have a place to pitch your tent dipshit.
Maybe Buckeyes aren't just useless nuts now are they?
I waited an hour and a half and had to friggin hike into the polls from the only parking spot I could find 3 blocks away. Small price to pay to vote for W and do my part to save us all from the John's.
Woooo Hoooo! 4 more years without an egg sucking, dog liberal in the white house!
Didn't you guys get the memo? Karl Rove created Democratic Underground to make the Dems look bad. But even he underestimated the extent to which Dems take this sh*t seriously. They are almost as bad as the Religious Right.
I cannot stand Bill Mahar. Him and Michael Moore should marry each other.
For those who might not have seen the county map Here it is. For those thinking about Canada, check This out.
