DUmmies OUTRAGED About Greens On Pennsylvania Ballot
Remember how the Democrats were oh so happy over the candidacy of Ross Perot in 1992 and 1996? Well, that was because Perot siphoned votes away from Repbublicans. Now that the Green Party has qualified for the statewide ballot in Pennsylvania, the Democrats and the DUmmies are absolutely OUTRAGED, mainly because they know the Greens will take votes from them as Ralph Nader did in 2000. You can watch just how upset the DUmmies are over the Green candidates in Pennsylvania in this THREAD titled, "It's official (TPM) GOP aided Green Party in PA. . ." So let us now watch the DUmmie anger over Greens on the ballot in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting Democrat aid to qualifying Libertarians for the ballot, is in the [brackets]:
It's official (TPM) GOP aided Green Party in PA. . .
[It's official---DEM aided Libertarians in the other 49 states.]
OK, we've done it. We've nailed it down: Every single contributor to the Pennsylvania Green Party Senate candidate is actually a conservative -- except for the candidate himself.
[GASP! What a dirty Republican trick. Getting more choices on the ballot. And speaking of choice, I now note there is a pro-choice candidate on the PA ballot for U.S. Senator. Hee! Hee!]
The Luzerne County Green Party raised $66,000 in the month of June in order to fund a voter signature drive. The Philly Inquirer reported yesterday that $40,000 came from supporters of Rick Santorum's campaign (or their housemates). Also yesterday, we confirmed that another $15,000 came from GOP donors and conservatives. Only three contributions, totaling $11,000, remained as possible legit donations.
[Were these contributions illegal? No? Then END of story.]
Slimy. Still, it's politics.
[It's slimy to allow for more CHOICE on the ballot?]
I think this is pretty low even for politics.
[Not quite as low as ILLEGALLY keeping the polling places in St. Louis OPEN after closing time.]
This is why Richard Reardon did not become CA governor
It is far from slimy, it is strategic campaigning. If the voters are going to fall for it, then they deserve what they get. In the 2002 California election Gray Davis knew that he could not beat Richard Reardon in a statewide election, but he also knew that he could defeat Bill Simon, Reardon's Republican primary competitor. Democrats sent money to Simon, staffed phone trees, even walked districts for Simon. Simon got the nomination and the republicans lost the statewide election.Republicans in California are so completely screwed up that they fell for the trick, hook, line, sinker.
[But when Republicans spend a few bucks to help the Greens qualify for the ballot in PA where the petitions necessary were purposely set high by the Democrats, that is somehow a slimy outrage?]
Why does Santorum and the Pubs think it's good for them to have the Green Party on the ticket? I don't understand????
[If you have to ask then I can't explain...DUhmmie.]
the green party siphons progressive votes away from the dem candidate.
[Or, in my vicious rightwing patois, they siphon leftwing liberal lunatics away from the Democrats.]
I honestly see this GOP scam as a last ditch effort!
[Getting more candidates on the ballot is somehow a scam? Was the Perot candidacy also a scam?]
Not surprising, but did the Greens know it was dirty money?
[Democrats seem to have no problem accepting George Soros dirty money.]
Some official of the Green Party was on NPR praising Santorum for supporting "ballot access."
[Shame on Santorum for supporting ballot access.]
There is absolutely no excuse for the Green Party allowing itself to be used as a front for Republican dirty tricks, and there is no way this campaign was not aware of who was supporting them. Hell, they had to report it themselves. The Greens involved should be held directly and publically accountable for accepting this funding, and for failing to disclose to their supporters who was actually funding them. And let's not forget the Republicans, who had to be the muscle behind this scam and who funded it with five figures of backdoor donations. Everyone involved in this should be scurrying back under a rock.
[And hide their heads in shame for supporting ballot access.]
If the Dems loose, it will be because of Diebold and/or their own weak positions.
[Already lining up your post-election excuses?]
I know people who vote for Greens and other "off-party" candidates. Some of them have admitted they will vote a third party just to be cool and "fringey." And I know they're not alone. There are plenty of third-party voters who are nothing but immature and uninformed, so there's nothing that differentiates them from more "mainstream" voters. An uninformed voter is dangerous, period, even if they're voting Green. So for many, it has nothing to do with being dissatisfied with the Democratic party. It has everything to do with trying to stand out.
[By definition, all DUmmies are uninformed.]
We don't need any help from the GOP to make us look out of touch.
[You do just fine in this regard all by yourselves.]
GIVE BACK THE FUNDS OR WE WILL DESTROY YOU, GREEN PARTY!
[GIVE BACK THE FUNDS, GREEN PARTY, OR WE WILL SOIL OUR DIAPERS!]
The Greens worked specifically to make Gore lose in Florida in 2000. With full cooperation from the GOP (via Rove). Mission accomplished. And people wonder why third parties are not embraced in the U.S.
[Except when the Democrats embraced Ross Perot when he was running for president.]
90,000+ Green votes in Florida. Less than one half of one percent would have saved our country a lot of pain. Florida was clearly in the jeopardy column for Gore and yet in the final weeks of the "race", Nader, out of state Greens, and of course GOP "Greens" spent a lot of time and money there.
Statistically, that one half of one percent would have voted for Gore (not for Bush, nor not voted at all) if it wasn't for the effort of the above individuals and groups.
[Those thoughts still haunt Al Gore nightly. Of course, Gore would have still won if he only carried his HOME state.]
