William Rivers Pitt Feels DUmmie FUnnies Heat
As many of you already know, the DUmmie FUnnies is now attempting to become a finalist in the 2007 WEBLOGS AWARDS contest. If the DUFUs makes it as a finalist, then this very DUFU edition will be an EXCELLENT reason why you should vote for it as the FUnniest Blog on the Web. Why? Because of the angst it is sure to cause William Rivers Pitt as well as the rest of the DUmmies (and KOmmies). Think of it. The one blog on the Web awarded as the the FUnniest is dedicated to pointing out the foibles of the Pittster and his fellow leftwing loons. If the DUmmie FUnnies wins this honor, you can bet that Ol' PJ will make sure to point out in all press interviews that much of the success is due to the Pied Piper who has provided us with such TERRIFIC unintentional comedy material over the years.
Yes, feel the heat, Pitt. Feel the heat from that the DUmmie FUnnies already caused you last Tuesday when we pointed out how you were not so subtly SHILLING for Hillary. Apparently, Pitt has been singed by that heat and now has to post a followup THREAD titled, "A plea on behalf of DU's Hillary supporters," in which he explains that, heh-heh, he wasn't really shilling for Hillary even though that is exactly what he was doing. Sorry, Pitt, by your awkward angling to become a player in the Hillary campaign is way to obvious to all. Unfortunately, you are condemned to being forever consigned to the Thanksgiving kiddie table to eat crow while at the grownups table they are playing the real game of politics. Oh, you will probably be given some throwaway volunteer job with a fancy title like Director of Campaign Literature Distribution but all that will mean is that you get to stuff envelopes and hand out bumper stickers without pay. So let us now watch Pied Piper Pitt attempt to relieve the heat placed on him by the DUmmie FUnnies while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who plans to really press his loyal DUFU readers to vote for this blog should it make it into the finals, is in the [brackets]:
A plea on behalf of DU's Hillary supporters
[More like a plea on behalf of Pied Piper Pitt who is feeling DUmmie FUnnies heat.]
For the record, I am not one. I have chosen no candidate to support yet.
[Ding! Ding! Two Pitt lies in a row.]
But I wanted to say this.
[Please don't believe the DUmmie FUnnies!!!]
It is a hard thing to be a Hillary supporter on DU. Yes, her voting record isn't all that great, and yes, she would be a continuation of this American presidential primogeniture process that has had two families in the Oval for twenty years, and yes, there's more.
[The more of it for Pitt is she is the one with the money and also the one with the nomination in the bag.]
But respect the fact that we can disagree without combat.
[Translation: Please don't flame me while I publicly angle for a job with the Hillary campaign.]
Respect the courage involved in supporting someone far to the right of the DU mainstream (and that's true, folks: we're way to the left of the Dem party and most of America). It takes guts to stand your ground in a fusillade.
[This is Pitt sending out not so secret smoke signals to the Hillary campaign. Sorry, Pitt, but Hillary will NEVER get over the fact that you caused her public humiliation with her scoop about Karl Rove being indicted on May 12, 2006. BTW, I notice that you have made NO mention of your partner in journalistic fraud, Jason Leopold, in over a year.]
Now, I'm not saying Hillary supporters who go ad-hominem should be respected. They should be ignored.
[Pied Piper Pitt learns a new word to wave around, "ad-hominem." He overuses it 3 times in this thread alone.]
But the best man I have ever known in my life, my grandfather, was a rock-ribbed conservative Catholic Republican. He spoke with respect, argued with passionate logic, and earned the respect of his opponents.
[All qualities lacking in his grandson.]
It's easy to be a Kucinich supporter on DU; he polls at 5% nationally but wins every DU poll by 80 points. It's hard to be a Hillary supporter here, and the Hillary supporters who stand their ground and debate with respect should get respectful disagreement in return.
[Wow! We already know that Pitt backstabbed Kucinich once when, as his press secretary, he fed confidential information to the Kerry campaign but now he is backstabbing his former boss again.]
Just a thought for consideration.
[That you have not yet ceased to backstab Dennis Kucinich? And now to hear from the other DUmmies plus more Pitt cameos...]
On the other hand, disagreement with her policies are often met with "misogynist!!" One can think her health insurance plan is a sell-out to the drug and insurance industries and shouldn't be met with claims of "basher" and "hater"!
[Let's hear Pitt's reasoned response to this Hillary objection...]
"Hillary supporters who go ad-hominem...should be ignored"
[So is Kevin Spacey, who wouldn't go to your apartment, a hominem?]
I wonder if we are to the left of the party and "most of America". The average DUer, (the poll taking kind, anyway) iirc, is a suburban, middle class, middle aged white woman -- a group known for their extreme political views?
[The average DUmmie is a moonbat living in mommie's basement.]
THERE HAS NEVER EVER BEEN A DEMOCRACY THAT HAS NO MIDDLE CLASS AND THE MIDDLE CLASS IN AMERICA IS BEING DRIVEN INTO OBLIVION BY THE POLICIES OF THE TWO CORPORATIST PARTIES. The Republican Party has become a new age Right Wing American Taliban.
[Thank you for verifying the "moonbat" part of my description of an average DUmmie.]
The Dems, by and large, have left our own best interests in the dust. Then stomped the shit out of 'em...
[Meanwhile, Pied Piper Pitt is still trying to find his angry.]
It's the Duopoly, Stupid.
[It's the ad-hominem, Stupid.]
But there are legitimate beefs with her IWR vote, etc. 99% is great...but that 1% has some whoppers in it, at least in the eyes of many here. Not unreasonable to state.
[Posted Pied Piper Pitt in a pathetic attempt to criticize Hillary just enough he hopes to placate the DUmmies but not enough to alienate Her Highness...he hopes.]
Good 80% of the gun owners are rabid nut cases.
[Unlike the utterly rational DUmmies.]
a plea on behalf of me - can HRC supporters stop posting "inevitability" threads please? I like the quaint old fashioned idea of waiting for the actual primaries to begin before declaring someone as the victor.....
[LEAVE HILLARY ALONE!!!]
Sadly, there's an awful lot of intolerance for the centrists and the conservative Democrats here. And that's a shame--because the Democratic Big Tent is very tolerant out in the real world.
[And from what Alternate World are you posting that the Democrats are very tolerant?]
Et tu, Will? FYI, we are NOT far to the left of the mainstream. We ARE the mainstream. We just don't represent the views of the corporate profiteers.
[Et tu, Will? That is what Dennis Kuncinich asked when Pitt stabbed him in the back.]
Potato/po-tah-to. Some say clouds make the rain, others say God makes the rain...but we all get wet. You're correct...but the polls are the polls.
Sad fact: every candidate has DU supporters who are galactically obnoxious assheads. Every candidate. No one candidate has cornered that market on DU.
[And we know which candidate you are being a galactically obnoxious asshead for, Will.]
What...that ad hominem people should be ignored?
[The Pied Piper plays with his new ad hominem word once again.]
I think she is hiding her true nature in order to get elected. Honorable? maybe not, but I think we'll be amazed how progressive she truly is if she gets into office.
[Don't worry folks. Hillary is really a Bolshevik. She just is just hiding that fact for electoral purposes.]
Kucinich has a disproportionately high number of supporters
here, compared to in the general Democratic population.
[Kucinich also had a disproportionately high number of backstabbers working for him.]
Thanks for your thoughtful post, Will. As a Hillary supporter, I very much appreciate it.
[Don't forget to tell Hillary that Will is also a supporter. Wink! Wink!]
I agree with you for the most part but I don't know what "go ad-hominem" means.
[It's the secret word you whisper into Kevin Spacey's ear when you want him to visit your apartment.]
Have the internment camps been readied?
[Just one more Wal-Mart left to be built and then all will be ready.]
Hypotheticus Horibilis, Ma'am, Is A Mug's Game
[Ad-hominem is Will's game.]
The part that you don't "get" Will, is that for some of us IT IS COMBAT
[The part that you don't "get" DUmmie, is that for Will IT IS EMPLOYMENT.]
Sorry, Will. There are too many people fighting for their livelihoods here.
[Sorry, DUmmie. Will is fighting for his livelihood here.]
DU doesn't need your combat tactics. The country beyond does. If you think you're getting something done for the country by tearing up DU, you are 1. Wrong, and 2. Part of the problem.
[Responds Will to this ad-hominem attack.]
Nope. I'm educating people on what someone stands for. How DARE YOU blame me. HOW DARE YOU!
[LEAVE PITT ALONE!!!]
That's the problem with combat. You try to shoot me, like as not I'll shoot you worse.
["Somebody messes with me, I'm gonna mess with him." ---Al CaPitt.]
And capital letters won't help you either.
[How about these capital letters, Will? ---AD-HOMINEM.]
You're calling out DK supporters, I'm not sure why you're surprised to hear from me.
[Even better, he backstabbed DK himself.]
I am not calling out DK supporters, for God's sake. That interpretation is really deranged, man. I'm saying DU's support of DK is disproportionately large compared to off-board national support for DK. That's just f*cking fact. If you take that as a call-out, it goes a long way towards explaining why there's so much bullshit fighting around here.
[Angrily replied DK's former press secretary between backstabs.]
how many candidates are in the primaries besides HRC? How many, besides HRC, did you mention in the OP?
[If he thinks they will pay him then they would be worth a mention.]
You know what? I'm asking the mods to lock this. This thread has turned into a piece of shit. I'm under no contractual obligation to put every candidate into a post. I don't even understand what you're on about, and I'm really disappointed to have this conversation with you of all people. Just sad.
[As a measure of how little influence the Pied Piper now has in DUmmieland...this thread was NOT locked. Just sad.]
are you contemplating another 'exit' strategery because your thready poo didn't go as you wished? I would have thought you had thicker skin and were a little wiser as to how people intrepret obvious things.
[Pied Piper Pitt exited DUmmieland permanently in August only to return a few weeks later when he finally awoke from his Bukowski's bing drinking coma. BTW, can someone out there explain to me how Pitt can afford an apartment in Boston and binge drinking every night in Bukowski's while he holds down NO jobs? And don't tell me he is living off his book royalties.]
