DUmmies Demand That Skinner Come Clean on Clinton Cash Corruption
Call it, Skinner. That is the demand of the Hillary supporters, including PAID trolls, to Skinner in DUmmieland. That want him to "call it" for Hillary as the nominee so all debate can end and the Sandernistas will fall into line behind Hillary. However, there is now a louder call in DUmmieland from the Sandernistas: Tell it, Skinner. Yes, Tell it, Skinner about how you SOLD OUT and betrayed your fellow DUmmies for Clinton Cash. You might recall that a year ago, the DUmmie FUnnies REVEALED that Skinner has been getting big bucks from his paymasters at the Clinton Campaign via his wife, Shelly Moskwa. Since then the payments have continued while Skinner has maintained his silence. The most recent Federal Election Commission DOCUMENT shows that Skinner's wife hauled in $14,000 from The Paymaster for the month of March. Since last year, the DUmmies, timidly at first but later more boldly, have been casting aspersions upon Skinner's honesty. However, since he continues to maintain his oath of Omerta on this corruption, the voices in DUmmieland are now SHOUTING at him to come clean and reveal the extent of his CORRUPTION. We can see this happen in this THREAD authored by Skinner himself, The Democratic Primary Ruined My Friendship! It starts out with Skinner republishing a Slate story about the effects of the Bernie-Hillary rivalry on friendship. I'll skip it to go straight to Post #44 in which DUmmie lumberjack_jeff demands that Skinner tell the extent of his corruption. So let us now watch the DUmmies demand that Skinner come clean about his Clinton Cash payments in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, watching Skinner worship the green goddess Cashia, is in the [brackets]:
Skinner, we've hung out together for thirteen years.
If you and I could sit down over a beer, I'd tell you this:
I get that the relationship isn't symmetrical, it's mostly a business/customer relationship... kinda. I know that as a site that is free to me, I'm not really a customer, but my eyes, and the words I type are the product being sold.
I'm fine with that because I felt that we had a shared purpose in... not so much promoting the Democratic party as a jersey or a logo, but promoting progressive change through the Democratic party.
... But there was a competing agenda at work; the party was also being used as a vehicle to promote oligarchy and to enrich families through influence peddling; the purchasing of superdelegates in the guise of "helping downticket", money laundering by exploiting citizens united and superpacs to their full capacity.
[The Skinner family is certainly being enriched but continue lumberback_jeff...]
When I heard that you have a personal financial stake in the success of that family, I was concerned that I'd been sold out. That what I understood to be our shared agenda had been abandoned.
[Of course you have been sold out for way more than 30 pieces of silver by Skinner. Please continue...]
I appreciate that you haven't... what? Banned Sanders supporters? Not quite sure what the "call it" folks have in mind actually, but I think it would be a show of good faith for you to explain (or deny) the family connection to the Clinton campaign, and to talk about the measures you've taken to be fair with your community, approximately 70% of whom supported Bernie.
[Skinner has had a year to explain his secret acceptance of Clinton Cash but he still maintains his silence on this matter so don't expect much from him. All you and your fellow DUmmies can do is continue to focus on this corruption until hopefully Skinner will be embarrassed into making some sort of statement on this matter. And now on to the other DUmmies...]
Skinner really has not proven he is running a democratically driven discussion board, and we're supposed to stand up and take this?
The Hell I am...
[Of course it's not democratically driven. Skinner has turned DUmmieland into Cash & Carry. Money Talks, BS Walks!]
Is what you have posted a preamble or rationalization to a forthcoming purge?
[Get on Team Hillary or take a hike! So demands The Paymaster.]
If Skinner starts purging people who dislike-to-despise HRC, he'd have to slash almost all of DU.
Then he'd have not much of a website left.
[No but he would have plenty of Clinton Cash left and that's what counts.]
The article is bullshit... not real life. I wonder why Skinner is pushing the meme
Skinner, the only thing Michelle's article gives me perspective on is how the NARRATIVE GETS HIJACKED by people who get paid to explain it to us.
[Ahh, this DUmmie is referring to the PAID Hillary trolls now posting in DUmmieland. David Brock is handling those cash disbursements but Mrs. Skinner gets her Clinton Cash directly from the Hillary campaign.]
Thanks for the anti-Bernie supporter hit piece, Skinner.
[At least he got paid well for it.]
I've seen this mentioned a couple of times. But I haven't seen anyone spell it out. What is the claimed connection between Skinner and the Clintons? If you don't want to type up a long response that has already been said on DU, could you link me to it?
[Clinton Cash paid to Mrs. Skinner via the Clinton Campaign. $14,000 just this past March alone.]
A connection to a candidate doesn't ALWAYS mean that person supports the candidate. One of my friends and mentors was related to John Edwards, but I did not choose to vote for him in the 2008 primary.
[Is that you, Rielle?]
Though, I would be interested in reading the connections between Skinner and the Clintons. I have always found Skinner to be even handed, regardless of who he supports. It's something I admire about him because he's much more level headed than me. he doesn't seem to get worked up easily in his posts, etc.
[Skinner and the Clintons are connected by $$$$.]
It's time, skinner! Just change the name of the website to: Hillary, Come Hell (very probably) or High Water (um, yeah, already happened).
[$$$$ eases the way thru Hell and High Water.]
I appreciate what you tried to do by posting this article, Skinner. But if there is a clamp down on Sanders posters here, I fear it really will for all intents and purposes end this site as we know it, and that would be a shame in my view.
[Apocalypse Now! It will happen when more DUmmies realize how Skinner has BETRAYED them by secretly taking Clinton Cash and remaining silent about it.]
Triumph the Insult Dog Mocks PC Children of the Corn
This is one of the FUnniest of all the Triumph the Insult Dog Videos. Triumph visits the University of New Hampshire campus and confronts a group of absolutely humorless Politically Correct students. What results is COMEDY GOLD. Oh, and don't miss the hilarious bit where the PC students are asked to describe a certain suspect to a police sketch artist. Exit question: How many of these PC students have DUmmie screen names?
Remember whenever the Democrats lost an election, the DUmmies would accuse the Republicans of vote fraud? Of course, DUmmies would also get completely outraged if Democrats were accused of the same crime. Could never happen. As rare a an asteroid strike on the planet. Well, the DUmmies have now changed their tune. They are now accusing DEMOCRATS of massive vote fraud in the Iowa caucuses. Yeah, obviously the Hillary Clinton campaign was involved in it but they needed the help of the Iowa Democrat party bosses to enable the Hillary Clinton "victory" which was really a tie that was in actuality a Bernie Sanders victory. Think of it. Six coin flips to choose delegates and EVERY ONE of them goes for Hillary. In another case, there was only ONE vote in an Iowa precinct and the person who cast that ONE vote claims he voted for Bernie yet it was recorded as a Hillary vote. Right now the Des Moines Register is cataloging many, many more instances of vote irregularities which just so happened to have gone Hillary's way each and every time. Therefore it is enlightening to see, with the aide of the DUmmies in their thread titled, There is now enough evidence to think that Bernie actually won the Iowa Caucus, just how corrupt the DEMOCRATS are. So let us now watch the DUmmies accuse the DEMOCRATS of vote fraud in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, recuperating from my All You Can Drink Rum Festival yesterday, is in the [brackets]:
There is now enough evidence to think that Bernie actually won the Iowa Caucus.
[GASP! Democrat vote fraud! Who could have imagined it?]
Too many vote-count irregularities. Too many "transpositions" of odd-numbered delegations, always in Hillary's favor... for example, taking a 5-4 delegation for Bernie, and having it entered in as a 5-4 for Hillary. "Oopsie!" How cute. Vote fraud doesn't have to involve obviously evil bad guys stuffing ballots in back rooms. It can easily be some low-level apparatchik dishonestly typing in the wrong numbers. It only takes a second. The deed is done so quickly, it hardly seems like vote fraud at all...
[Yup! This definitely sounds like a Democrat vote fraud MO.]
Obviously, this is just my opinion about who really won. But I think everyone would agree, a full investigation is now required.
[Yeah, good luck getting the Iowa DEMOCRAT party to turn over the raw vote numbers. Now on to the other DUmmies claiming DEMOCRAT vote fraud...]
To call someone who is reasonably calling for certainty in elections a conspiracy nut only furthers the perception is very...Republican and bullyish - in my opinion.
[LOL! Using DEMOCRAT vote fraud to slam Republicans.]
Thus far, 4 people have come forward to say that the numbers were reported incorrectly. Clinton was given one delegate that she didn't earn. Bernie had one taken away. All errors found have favored Clinton.
[Gee! What a coincidence.]
The entire Editorial Board of the Des Moines Register has called for the Iowa Democratic Party to examine the caucus results.
[Yeah, the ones who committed the fraud are supposed to investigate it. LOL!]
And of course Hillary knew nothing about it. But the look on the faces of Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea during her victory /non victory speech before they high tailed it out of town and refused to respond to questions, perhaps suggests otherwise.
[That was the angriest "victory" speech I have ever seen.]
The one thing that the Clinton's learn well is never to leave their fingerprints on anything. Just like the server issue, it was obviously under her authority but underlings will pay the price. That is the cost of being associated with a Clinton.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Of course she didn't personally coordinate irregularities (I guess)...
BUT the "fix" was so in (with persons that are dedicated, die-hard Hill devotees, that will do anything) in many regions of the state...that it wouldn't come as any surprise that there could have been a few number changes. How many reports and videos of not only things in Iowa but Democratic offices around the country that have only Hill promotional materials and/or won't allow Bernie materials...thank you DWS for making it crystal clear the favored candidate.
[If Hillary continues suffering primary losses, the dirty tricks against Bernie will grow astronomically. Perhaps pics of Bernie with the Fidelistas when he visited Cuba years ago?]
Looks like its not gonna be a two tenths close. But a much wider margin with obvious cheating going on. But you go ahead and cling to that two tenths.
[BTW, head of the Iowa Democrat party owns a car with an "HRC 2016" license plate.]
I accept the official number from the Iowa Democratic party. Exhibit A: License plate HRC 2016. Blatant favoritism displayed prominently does not make me trust the "official" numbers.
[Blatant favoritism for Hillary? DWS would never allow it.]
there are some people within the DNC/Iowa Dems that don't want to release the total official count for a reason.That reason being is that Bernie won..but go ahead prove me wrong and I will the first tell you "well guess I was wrong".
[Yes, how convenient the RAW NUMBERS have not been released. Meanwhile the Republican raw numbers are out there for all to see.]
I get a kick out of watching democrats argue against transparency.
[Me too. Makes for great DUFU material.]
I bet the actual raw votes show a SOLID win for Bernie. We'll never see them.
[Welcome to the Wonderful World of DEMOCRAT vote fraud.]
Ah yes. Vote fraud only happens in other countries.
[And, until now, in other parties.]
The DNC has refused to release the raw vote count, what are they hiding?
[The real winner.]
we damn well better get to the truth before the rest of the states get a chance to rig their primaries.
[All future coin tosses will still be in Hillary's favor.]
Of course he won! And EVERYONE KNOWS IT. The cheating, lying, stealing and CORRUPTION is only going to make More people go out and vote, who may have just stayed home. Once again, HRH and all her corrupt THUGS, screwed up - Big Time. People are pissed!
[As well as amused.]
Some Americans don't like in your face election stealing.
[Does that mean Al Franken has to give up his senate seat?]
We must remain vigilant because they plan to pull this shit in every state.
DUmmies Suddenly NOT Sick & Tired of Hearing About Hillary's Damn Emails
During the first Democrat Presidential Candidate Debate last year, Bernie Sanders told Hillary Clinton that "the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails." That was the attitude of the DUmmies as well and for months afterwards not much was said about the topic in DUmmieland...until now. Suddenly, with the Iowa caucuses looming this Monday, her "damn emails" have become a hot topic in DUmmieland especially since some of her "damn emails" are rated top secret at the highest level and could be easily hacked from her private server. You can see the sudden DUmmie outrage at Clinton's emails labeled 'top secret'. Actually it is the Bernie Sanderistas who are suddenly outraged about Hillary's emails. Therefore the very few Hillary supporters in DUmmieland provide comic entertainment in their support of her as they get fervently attacked by the rest. So let us now watch the DUmmies work up strange new outrage over Hillary's emails in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who has returned from the wilderness after a very brief break, is in the [brackets]:
Clinton's emails labeled 'top secret
[DUmmies labeled 'bored' ...until now.]
Source: The Hill
The Obama administration will entirely withhold seven email chains found on Hillary Clinton’s private server because they have been classified as “top secret,” according to The Associated Press.
The former secretary of State’s presidential campaign quickly dismissed the news, which spokesman Brian Fallon called “overclassification run amok.”
“We adamently oppose the complete blocking of the release of these emails,” the campaign aide said on Twitter.
The revelation comes days before Iowa holds the first-in-the-nation nominating contest and on top of mounting scrutiny of Clinton's use of the private email server.
[Yes. Days before the Iowa caucuses which explains sudden DUmmie interest in a topic that they would normally write off as just "righwing" spin. So let us now watch the DUmmies show their sudden great concern about this...]
Just got an AP bulletin on my phone about the same thing. It's definitely informing/infecting...the news cycles. If she's to be the nominee, she has to make sure this doesn't hand the White House to the crypto-fascists...
["Crypto-fascists" is DUmmie-speak for "Republicans."]
I bet it will be "mum's the word" on the major networks.
[Good news! NBC News led off with it. Go Lester!]
SHE SHOULD NOT be the nominee. Too risky with this, not to mention what may be lurking in her husband's whole "pants-down department"...
[Give that DUmmie a crooked cigar!]
If she's the nominee Trump will crush her. Not even kidding. This whole fiasco is caused by her stunning lack of judgment and tendency to go right up to the line without crossing it. She should step aside and let Biden take her place as the establishment candidate.
[Get rid of Ughs! Bring in Plugs!]
She should step aside and let Biden take her place agree completely !
[I'll drink to that. Actually next Saturday I'll drink to that again and again and again when I go to the Tropical Rum Festival in West Palm Beach armed with my ALL YOU CAN DRINK ticket (GroupOn).]
Nonsense. Based on what? And if you want to hand the WH to the republicans, parachuting Biden in is a sure way to do it.
She broke the law buy sending highly classified information over unsecured servers. She removed classified information to unauthorized locations, is against the law, that's what this is all based on. It's unacceptable.
[And yet... You will still vote for her if she is nominated.]
Worried that this could sink her chances of being elected and ended of with one of nuts on the right.
[Would you like a coupon for worry beads?]
Maybe she shouldn't have set up a private email server for work emails
[Duuuh! Ya think?]
I think it speaks to her incredible lack of judgment and absolute hubris..
[But not a lack of moral fiber and Pappy O'Daniel has plenty of that.]
Anyway, the prospect of a Republican president at this time even more so than at others, is a ghastly scenario.
[It would definitely stir up the DUmmie Ant Farm for comedy gold.]
she knew what she was doing was illegal but figured she's a clinton, she can do as she pleases arrogance is another of her endearing qualities.....
[Along with her endearing cackle. Don't you just love it?]
She surrounded herself with sycophants and yes men.. nobody in that circle was about jump in and suggest that maybe it wasn't such a good idea to set up a private, unsecure mail server.
[The yes men wanted to preserve their cojones rather than try to correct Hillary.]
This morning on one of the news shows I heard a commentator musing about whether the FBI could clear her of all wrongdoing before the election so we wouldn't have to worry about a sitting president being indicted. That's what we'll be facing if she's the nominee. Trump will have a field day.
[A YUUUUUUUUUUGE field day.]
Why would she do something so dumb?
[But isn't she supposed to be the smartest woman in the word?]
Hillary's concern is Hillary.
[At the end she will NOT go quietly into the night.]
This isn't ever going to go away. God help us if she manages to keep the lid on this until after the GE. It's not going to blow,over, it's going to simmer until it explodes all over the place.
[It will go on and on and on. Always and forever unto the end of time.]
It would be worse if the lid popped off right before the general.
[Is that the same as a Chakra Release?]
Even if it was classified after the fact... we have Sec. Of State that can't recognize classified material. Does not speak well of her.
[It's like General Eisenhower getting a document with the date and location of the upcoming D-Day invasion and wondering if the document should be classified.]
The subject content of some of them was apparently about programs about which information is ALWAYS top secret. She shouldn't have needed someone to stamp the email with a digital rubber stamp, unless she was so clueless about her job that she didn't know that those programs were automatically top secret.
[At least she ran the documents by the Muslim Brotherhood supporter aka Huma.]
Same ol bullshit.. And yet she is still standing..
[As straight as a Weiner.]
Its been widely reported that there are over 1,300 classified emails found so far.
[Yet only just before the Iowa caucuses do the DUmmies get interested in this.]
DIRTY TRICKS WEEKENDS HAVE BEGUN!!! The time honored dirty tricks weekends start in earnest, as the primaries are upon us. Who will be the next targetS, I wonder - both this weekend and next, then before South Carolina?
[Thus spaketh one of the very very few Hillary supporters in DUmmieland.]
When will she be indicted? What's taking so long? Better now than late October.
[A DUmmie aching for Hillary to be frog walked.]
Someone else will take the fall.
I agree there is over classification - but these are not confidential, but top secret
[Which means they were in Snowden's flash drive.]
Hillary's campaign wants them released because they know it cannot happen. Top secret.
[Bingo. Kewpie doll to you.]
What happens if Huma sends classified info to Hillary or vice-versa.
[Is the length of Weiner consider classified info?]
So they are spinning it as overclassification. Clever, but not good enough. Now they are impugning Obama's own people. Seems like they are firing everywhere.
[Obama's people are members of a VAST RIGHTWING CONSPIRACY.]
Sanders is supposed to be very honest and trustworthy. Makes me wonder if the Sanders' supporters that post such things as in this OP believe in those traits?
[Savor the fine whine from a rare Hillary supporter in DUmmieland.]
So just how disastrous was Hillary's press conference yesterday when she proclaimed ignorance about the meaning of "wipe" as in "wipe" the server? It was so bad that even the DUmmies are mocking Miss Pretty In Orange. Although DUmmieland is now at least 95% in Bernie's camp despite the efforts of Head DUmmie Skinner to steer things Hillary's way because of his financial ties to her campaign, the DUmmies have up to now disregarded questions about Hillary's server as mere "rightwing propaganda." They preferred to attack her for economic reasons. However, that has suddenly changed as you can see in this THREAD, "Hillary Clinton won’t say if her server was wiped." Suddenly the floodgates have opened and now Hillary is fair game over there on this topic. So let us now watch the DUmmies go after Hillary in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, predicting that Hillary is about to get TRUMPED, is in the [brackets]:
Hillary Clinton won’t say if her server was wiped
[You mean like with a cloth?]
I doubt the server would have been wiped without her consent. Clinton is not just a random person in her late 60s. In addition. If it is wiped, someone made that decision. Given that it was made after a major effort to both print out and save a subset of messaged because the State Department had pushed her to give them the emails. I suspect that when she set up this system it was done with the expectation that they would all be private. Otherwise, at minimum, the work and personal emails would not have been comingled.
[At least she prepared herself for the Big Slammer by wearing an orange jumpsuit.]
She's wiped whatever chance she had to win the General. Unrepairable.
[Is that you, Donald Trump?]
We're going to see that moment re-run 1,000 times before the General. It's a killer, because it reveals something about her that most people find intensely disagreeable. What she lacks in personality, eloquence and warmth she makes up with snark, arrogance, and cold, self-satisfied condescension. The remark wasn't even clever or disarming. Hostile and clumsy.
[But doesn't she bake some killer chocolate chip cookies?]
The comment is making the rounds on social media. But hey ... "What difference, at this point, does it make?"
[So her emails were read by the Russians and the Chinese but what difference does it make?]
She is going to pretend not to understand the context of "wiped" in reference to data?
[Playing DUmb as a campaign strategy.]
When it comes to appealing to Millenials, she's tech savvy... But when it comes to responding to difficult questions, she's a digital newbie. How conveeeenient!
[What difference does it make?]
I am supposed to believe this person doesn't know what a data wipe is?
[Wipe often to prevent hemorrhoids.]
She's acting like a lawyer instead of a candidate. She's keeping her mouth shut, due to potential litigation. That's a bad sign for her campaign. She is on the defensive and this interferes with her positive message.
[Positive message? Like "It's my time, DAMMIT!!!"]
Once politicians start playing semantic games, especially in reference to an FBI investigation, things don't end well.
[It depends on what the definition of "is" is.]
does she think people are stupid?
How to Look Guilty/Arrogant/Stupid 101.
[DUmmies are experts on the latter.]
If the computer was wiped, someone made that decision. Given the existing FOIA, and the fact that her team did the sorting, I don't think that wiping the machine was something done by her tech person without permission.
[Can't she just blame it all on her tech guy?]
. to wipe a hard drive and or a server is something a sixth grader understands. To plea that she has no clue is kind of bizarre,
[What's does "Hack" mean? Chop away at wood?]
Bookmarking for future reference when meltdown occurs. I can see exactly where this is going.......
[It's going straight to President Trump. See you at The Donald's inauguration!]
If she didn't understand what wipe meant, she would have said "What do you mean?" By saying "What, like with a cloth or something?" reaks of on purpose. This is a B movie line.
[A B comedy movie.]
Yep. Hillary is too big to jail. But she will never be elected. This scandal is the end for her. Tragic, in a way. It has all the elements of a tragedy: tragic hero, tragic flaw, tragic ending.
She's blowing smoke and it's working against her; in most people's minds where there is smoke, there is fire.
The few, the brave, the.....WAAAAAH! The demoralized. I mean utterly DEMORALIZED. Who? The handful of Hillary supporters left in DUmmieland. Like George A. Custer at the Little Big Horn, their numbers were never great but now they have dwindled down to a pathetic few. Yes, they had a big boost initially from DUmmie Leader Skinner who hyped Hillary bigtime. Of course, it was Clinton Cash that influenced his decision and until recently he was giving pep talks to boost the morale of those few, very few, Clinton supporters in DUmmieland. However, even Skinner now appears to have given up trying. Perhaps this is the signal that the Clinton money pipeline from the Clinton campaign to his wife in her role as Treasurer for Friends of Hillary has dried up. To get a visual idea of how Hillary's already meager fortunes in DUmmieland has collapsed, just look at their HILLARY GROUP compared to their BERNIE SANDERS GROUP. The latter group has dozens of threads each day with with scores of posts hailing their SOCIALIST while the Hillary Group has just a trickle of threads flowing in with a dozen posts tops...if they are lucky. The bottom line is the steam has completely run out of the Hillary Group and now they are in a freefall of utter demoralization. So let us look at the handful of Hillary threads remaining in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that even Bill Clinton is no longer defending his wife, in the [brackets]: More good news just for us!
[Please Blue Fairy. Bring us any tiny tidbit of happiness!]
Machinists' union endorses Clinton for president in 2016
[Yeah, now there is a real game changer. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!]
[Rub your rabbit's foot three times and pray to goddess Gaia.]
The union, based in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, represents nearly 600,000 active and retired members, according to its website.
[That's probably counting dead members which means they can vote where Democrats rule.]
I was looking at the list of current Congressional Members who have endorsed Hillary, 118 to date with 15 former members of Congress also endorsing Hillary. These are members who have worked in Congress who has confidence in Hillary but not in Bernie. O'Malley has one endorsement from Congress, 31 Democratic Senate members out of 44, 87 Democratic Representative members out of 188, overwhelming support from Congress.
[Please, Blue Fairy! Please, Blue Fairy! Please, Blue Fairy! Please, Blue Fairy! Please, Blue Fairy! Please, Blue Fairy!]
Why I post in this safe-haven sanctuary...I wouldn't last 6 replies 'out there'!
[LOL! This DUmmie is right. The Hillary Group is like a safe-haven sanctuary where they can post Hillary fantasies without being Berned.]
That's how you do it one union at a time!!
[The Hard Drive Wipers union will be next with a Hillary endorsement. Well, this thread already faded away at under 10 replies so let us go to the next listless Hillary thread...]
This one from U.S. Senator Tom Harkin. How long before we hear Tom isn't a progressive? Or is a corporatist?
[Defensive much, DUmmie HappyinLA who has a grand total of only 31 post? ]
Senator Harkin's endorsement is a critical one in Iowa.
He is a liberal icon (picked Obama last go 'round). In the Iowa caucus world, this endorsement carries some weight, particularly in light of the relentless media attacks on Hillary, the ginned-up 'threats' of other old candidates entering the primary race, and the so-called surge of Senator Sanders (I-VT). This endorsement is an in-your-face rejection of all that "bad news"!
[I actually read that Harkin "endorsement." All of it was about Harkin himself with one paragraph devoted to Hillary. Okay that thread fizzled out after FIVE replies and now to perhaps the most pathetic thread I have seen in a long time...]
[...and I will so desperately grasp at a straw of absolute nothings that it will turn me, DUmmie Walk away, into the laughingstock of the web.]
She, her sister and their daughters watched the Hillary videos that I sent them and read all of the articles. They are now (all nine of them) certain that they will vote for Hillary and are even talking about having a house party!
[GAME CHANGER!!! BTW, aren't the daughters aged 2 to 12?]
That's how it starts.
[Today a client being merely polite, tomorrow THE WORLD! Enough to send DUmmie Tarhell Dem into massive urinations of happiness. ]
This is great news
[Let the celebrations begin! Okay this thread died at nine but I think you get a sense of their utter hopelessness and desperation. Meanwhile, as stated, even former cheerleader Skinner has skipped the Hillary scene.]
Let us throw a pity party for Pitt. William Rivers Pitt has splt from DUmmieland again over hurt feelings. Normally he can be expected to crawl back again with his tail between his legs but this time there might not be a DUmmieland to crawl back to and the reason for this has to do with why Pitt split. You see, in the past Pitt was a member of the DUmmieland protected class. Most posts slamming or mocking him were pulled. However, this time a mocking post, "24 business hours", was not only allowed to stay up, it wasn't even locked. Why? Because it has everything to do with DUmmie leader Skinner aka Mr. Moskwa aka David Allen selling his soul to the Hillary campaign. You see, Pitt apparently lost his normal protection for the "high crime" of being an avid Bernie Sanders supporter. Skinner seems to have taken his revenge by leaving that thread mocking Pitt up in all its hilarious glory. Pitt is a member of the 99% of the DUmmies who are supporting the avowed socialist while Skinner is backing crony capitalist Hillary Clinton. Of course, no full disclosure from Skinner as to the reason for his Hillary support namely the big bucks his wife, Shelly Moskwa, is earning from the Hillary campaign as can be seen in FEC documents presented in a previous DUFU edition. Since among the profitable Hillary activities conducted by Skinner's wife is the selling/renting of mailing lists, I wouldn't be too surprised if the DUmmie personal email addys was included in those lists. Of course, Skinner has remained completely mum on his Hillary money pipeline despite the fact that he should have made full disclosure of the Hillary money connection of Mr. & Mrs. Moskwa. So goodby to Pitt and it might be for good since DUmmieland could soon melt down when outrage against Hillary and Skinner boils over. Here is Pitt's Good Bye Cruel World thread, Cheers, best wishes, and farewell. So let us now wave so long as he rides off into the distant of the blazing Bolshevik Red sun while the commentary of your humble correspondents, wondering if Skinner's future comments should be in Crony Capitalist Green, is in the [brackets]: "24 business hours"
[Quick! Send this thread to the memory hole. Oh wait! Since Pitt is a Bernie Boy, Skinner will allow the public mockery of the heretic.]
I strongly suspect that Karl Rove to be indicted from TruthOut was due to an insider to deceive and give the impression it was about to happen to ridicule them for not turning to be accurate. I have a feeling anyway.
[May 12, 2006. A date that shall live in hilarity.]
Wait- I'm confused. I must have totally missed whatever the backstory here was.
[A DUmmie without a clue. No surprise there.]
A poster that the Op hates wrote an article predicting Rove's indictment. Back in 2008 when many were convinced, including insiders in DC that Rove would be indicted, With Pitt wrote an article on his blog. Truth-Out. The poster has decided to dig this up out of the past to try and humiliate a poster he does not like. It is nasty, disgusting, stalkerish behavior.
[Actually 2006. It might be nasty, disgusting, stalkerish behavior but it has the seal of approval from the one percenter DUmmies like Skinner (Mr. Moskwa) who support Hillary.]
Is this why Pitt posted a farwell note?
[Yes, especially after he realized that Skinner gave it his seal of approval by not deleting it.]
He just said his 'cork had popped'
[Al Gore calls it "releasing my Chakra."]
I can't believe that I have been on this board so long that I knew just what the op was referencing. I remember how my hopes were dashed. I hope it happens one day and that Rove's karma catches up to him.
It's still goddamn funny, I don't care who that burns "...24 business hours to get his affairs in order..." Anybody who thought a federal prosecutor would actually say such a thing is a f***ing moron.
[How about 95% of the DUmmie morons who believed it?]
I actually bet a bunch of DUers at the time that the story was bullshit. I told them it was nonsense as soon as I read Leopold's story. Why it's being brought up now is a mystery to me, but at the time it was hilarious. It really was a symptom of how desperate people were for a solution to Bush. "Fitz" was going to save them. It was a childish belief with childish proponents.
["Fitz" could have shut the investigation down on like Day 3 when he discovered that RICHARD ARMITAGE was the perp.]
the most ironic thing was that the leak to Novak was from one of the few sane people in the Bush admin, Richard Armitage.
[DUmmies were surpremely disappointed when it turned out that RICHARD ARMITAGE was the perp. It didn't fit there fictitious narrative.]
Yes, we were all waiting for Fitzmas.
[Waiting and waiting and waiting for 24 business hours to go by.]
Not quite sure what you are aiming at, but it is pretty obvious what happened with "Fitzmas" is that the Truthout/Pitt/Leopold crew lied, and made up the story, hoping that an indictment was in fact inevitable and that their lie would later be backed up by events. There was no indictment, they made a bad bet, pretty simple.
[They sure did make a bad bet. Instead of Pitt holding court in a fine Boston eatery as a respected pundit as he had hoped, he is now stuck in a tiny cabin in the backwoods of New Hampshire holding court with many, many bottles of distilled liquid.]
I remember waiting for the indictment!
[Only 24 business hours to go!]
if people expect special treatment because they're semi-famous, they have to grow thinner skins. Pitt has gotten special treatment from the admins here--there's literally no other poster who would have been allowed back after he did what he did to get himself banned. and it's not like he can't dish it out, as those who watched his interactions with bobolink can attest
[Ah yes. Pitt threatened physical violence upon that fragile homeless woman, Bobo the Hobo.]
"24 business hours" is a part of Pitt's legacy, and he's not going to be able to run away and hide every time someone brings it up.
["24 business hours." Carve that on his tombstone.]
So, yes, when people bring up a fiasco fueled by recklessness, ego, hubris, stubbornness, and gullibility, there are going to be snickers. Especially when those who should have learned a lesson from that episode pointedly refuse to acknowledge the lessons that should have been learned.
[Well, Pitt did issue a partial birth non-apology.]
His drunken rants and crappy insults towards Obama and others turned me off. I really don't care if he stays or goes. I'm not a fan.
[Is that you, Mamma Raven?]
I read his temper tantrum rant to Skinner. I gotta say Skinner is a better person than I would be - to have allowed him back. Pitt sure seems to love the drama, I can see that. Kind of sad, actually.
[You wouldn't think Skinner is such a nice person if you knew he was BETRAYING you and most other DUmmies by failing to reveal his financial connection to the Hillary campaign.]
I'm sure Mr. Pitt will still be posting on other websites.
[Not in KOmmieland where he has been hilariously mocked in the past.]
He has had 3 books published and has been on the NYT Best Seller List.
[Vanity press books checkbooked by Mamma Raven and NYT Best Seller List only in Pitt's fantasyland.]
Pretty sure the person who runs this site is a Hillary supporter
[CASH is his incentive to support that crony capitalist candidate. Now on to Pitt's Goodbye Cruel World THREAD...]
Cheers, best wishes, and farewell.
[So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, adieu
To you and you and you]
Fare you well, fare you well
I love you more than words can tell
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul
-- Robert Hunter
[At least you are attributing it this time rather than plagiarizing it.]
These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do ... Are you ready boots? Start walkin'!

[I think this was Nancy Sinatra's only hit song.]
It's been a fun 14 years, but I do believe my cork has popped.
[And you've popped many a cork, Will. Hic!]
Good luck, be well, much love.
[And now the DUmmie reaction to Pitt's exit stage left...]
[Because his feelings were hurt and Clinton Cash Cow Skinner wouldn't protect him any more.]
I hope this is a temporary break from the fiasco du has become.
[A fiasco in which your own leader is secretly taking Clinton Cash.]
There's a lot of other old time DUers who won't be far behind.
[When they find out they have been BETRAYED by Skinner who is in the Hillary cash pipeline.]
The oldtimers are drifting away from DU for a reason. They haven't changed. DU has.
[DU has turned into a Clinton Cash Cow by Skinner. Ask him if his wife sold/rented your email addy in her role as Hillary treasurer.]
Will Pitt never needed proof. Between Rove and Turbo Tax, he never offered an OUNCE of proof, why should we hold this poster to a higher standard?
[Thanx for the reminder that Pitt also ended up with egg on his face over his Turbo Tax FALSE story.]
Oh Will, what sad news. Although I do understand. I think the Democratic party is in as much trouble as the Republicans.
[Both parties have people taking crony capitalist cash. Right Skinner? Skinner?]
A lot of us have seen this schtick before.
[Is this the fifth or sixth time that Pitt left "forever?"]
I give him 3 weeks.
[I give DUmmieland 3 days IF they acknowledge that they were betrayed by Clinton Cash Skinner.]
