DUmmies debate: "It's clear that Hillary is not particularly beloved here"



For some reason, Hillary Rodham Clinton does not engender loads of love over in DUmmieland. Even though Her Thighness is a Big Government Socialist of the highest order, you would think, based on DUmmie comments, that she is Pat Buchanan in a pantsuit. And even though the Air of Inevitability has gone out of her campaign, the DUmmies still have to wrestle with the distinct possibility that Mrs. Clinton may end up as their party's nominee. So what to do if that dreaded prospect eventuates? Hold your nose and vote "D" anyhow? Wander off the plantation and vote third party? Stay home in mama's basement, stuff your face in depression, and grouse on DU?

The DUmmies thus find themselves on the horns of a dilemma, as seen in this
THREAD, "It's clear that Hillary is not particularly beloved here." The Hillary Question also raises an internal debate about how representative DUmmieland actually is, in comparison to the Democrat electorate. So let us now sit back and watch the Anti-Hillaryites and the Even-More-Anti-Hillaryites go at it, in Bolshevik Red, while the humble commentary of your guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, wondering how the DUmmies can ALMOST make Hillary into a sympathetic figure, is in the [brackets]:

It's clear that Hillary is not particularly beloved here at DU, right?

[Democratic Understatement.]

I mean geeezus, in a current DU poll asking would you choose Biden or Hillary, Biden is winning with 87 percent of the vote. 87!?!?

[Plugs is benefiting from his DUmmie FUnnies' endorsement.]

I'm starting to worry what might happen if indeed she is the nominee. I'll still vote for her, but yikes.

[Worry on, DUmmie cboy4. Why do you think Rove has decreed her as your nominee?]

If she's the democrat nominee. . . .

[Woops! The "DEMOCRAT" nominee?! DUmmie NeedleCast, you have just opened yourself up to suspicion for being a LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!]

OMG, it's "Democratic" nominee... NOT "democrat" nominee.

[DUmmie cboy4 can smell a LFT a mile away!]

DemocratIC.

[So can DUmmie WinkyDink.]

Sorry, nachos. Had a bit plate of them in front of they keyboard and was trying to type around them.

[No excuse, NeedleCast! You said, "DEMOCRAT" nominee! To the Hague with you, you obvious rethuglican!]

There is a small contingent of Fervent Clinton haters here who endlessly post useless stink-bomb threads. . . . These people are turning this board into a sewer.

[Actually, I think that's Hillary's pantsuit you are smelling.]

If HRC is the nominee, I will hope to develop a deadly disease before November.

[Maybe your BDS will morph into terminal HRCDS.]

That would suck. You should just hope to get hit by a train or something. You know, make it quick.

[Sounds like Hillary's nomination could depopulate DUmmieland.]

you would jump on your soap box and screech to the world ... "NOW I KNOW I WON'T VOTE FOR THAT WOMAN".

["I will NOT . . . have electoral relations . . . with that woman . . . Mrs. Clinton."]

If DU represented the general population Dennis would probably be the front runner. . . .

[If DU represented the general population, I think *I* would lie down on a train track!]

My worst fear is that if any of the other Dems win the presidency we won't have anything to talk about on the DU.

[And that would be bad for the DUFUs. Hmmm . . . GO HILLARY!]

If She Is The Nominee - I'll Write In Another Candidate. . . .

[Cynthia McKinney? Puh-leeeze?]

Yeah, that's a wonderful idea. Ensure that the Repubs win. Thanks.

[Yeah, thanx!]

oooh, i can feel my predictions coming true. . . .

[I think that's your meds kicking in.]

And Huckabee becomes president for 8 years. . . .

[Maybe you didn't get the memo, but the Huckaboom has gone Huckabust.]

If you imagine that your write-in vote . . . "sends a message", if you imagine that politicians are going to look at the 1% who voted for Mickey Mouse or Stephen Colbert. . . .

[I'd take the Mouse over Stephen Colbert.]

I don't want her as the nominee, but if all the Democrats stay home, then the Republican wins.

[So all you Democrats, be sure to turn out and VOTE on November 5! Remember, remember, the Fifth of November!]

Real Democrats are tired of Republican-lite choices like Clinton and Obama. . . . Your voting reality gives us candidates like John Kerry. Your voting reality sticks us with ineffectual "leaders" like Henry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

[Give us Kucinich! Give us Gravel! The wackier the better!]

will you do the same if the nominee is Biden, Dodd, Edwards or Obama? they've all been enablers - Clinton's no better than any of them, but I don't think she's much worse.

[TO THE HAGUE WITH THE LOT OF THEM!]

That's no different than throwing away a vote on Nader. And your post is against DU rules.

[You must only speak in favor of a DEMOCRAT! Prepare for tombstoning!]

my favorite, at this moment in time, is Biden, for all sorts of reasons that I won't enumerate here.

[It's the DUmmie FUnnies' endorsement, isn't it? Go on, you can say it.]

DU in NO WAY reflects the Democratic Party at large. Lately DU is a very small microcosm of left wing fanaticism combined with a similar number of right wing troll agitators.

[DUmmie Gman, you get today's Kewpie Doll for a brief moment of mental clarity. Congratulations!]

do you even understand what real left wing fanaticism is? Do you see loads of pro Mao, Lenin and Castro posts?

[Mao, Lenin, Castro. . . Peh! Republican-lites!]

Are the majority of people here calling for a communist take over?

[In Bolshevik Red!]

DU is really not a fanatical left wing site . . .

[. . . said the DUmmie with the Kucinich avatar.]

she is fine by me. . . .

[Is that you, Huma?]

I can go door to door with enthusiasm and energy to talk about Biden.

[Is that you, Joe Biden?]

If HC is the nominee, I might have to hire my neighbor to drag me to the precinct to vote.

[See? Hillary will create JOBS!]

when it comes down to actual match-up of candidates, it appears that among actual voters she's the weakest of our lot against possible Republican contenders.

[Shhh!]

Look up nepotism. Her pic will be nearby.

[Or see her book, "Stand By Your Man: Mrs. Clinton's Guide to Gaining Money, Fame, and Power."]

DU skews left. We do not represent the overall populace.

[Ya think?]

this place is zero gage of the real world.

[The Reality-Based Community.]

If she is the nominee, the mods will be busy tombstoning a lot of assholes.

[So many to choose from.]

I'll vote for her, go home, cry, and throw up. . . .

[Go home, cry, and throw up? Isn't that your usual routine, Will, after a night at Bukowski's?]

I B Love her.

[I B LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]

We are so f*cked if Clinton is the nominee. And if you ask me, it is by design.

[Heh heh heh. . . .]

Hillary is poison . . . political poison.

[Arsenic and Old Crusty.]

If Hillary gets the nomination I'll go out and purchase an industrial strength clothespin to clamp on my nostrils. . . .

[That pantsuit IS pretty overpowering. . . .]

Um, yeah, actually. DU loves them some Castro. They love Lenin's policies of collectivization and nationalization, and Mao's policies of suppressing dissent. So while you might not see an "I *heart* Lenin" thread, they do love his ideas.

My father-in-law said he wouldn't vote for Hillary; and was told by my mother-in-law that if he didn't vote for her, he would be sent to the Hague.
Remember, the DUmmies believe this is were the Halls of Justice and the Superfriends are. His punishmnet would be to have to wear Aquaman's Speedo...With Aquaman still in it... He looks pretty funny in his Hillary for President T-shirt.

Dear God in Heaven. The Dems are DEBATING. We're on the Highway to Hell now, folks. This is some scary-ass shit. These friggin turnip heads are actually debating about their PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE. How stupid are these guys? Debate Shmeebate.

How's things going with the repububliDUms anyway? I certainly hope there's no debating going on. We all know where that can lead.

Dude, that's not PJ. It's our beloved guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson. You should pay a little more attention to what is posted.

BTW, the DUmmies don't debate, they argue incessantly. And if you disagree with the DUmmie collective, you get banned. You know, tombstoned. Just how does that equate to a debate?

I mean, really, trogalman, Clinton will be your nominee, or she will destroy your party. She does not like to lose. Which I can admire. I love me an ornery President, just not an ornery socialist President. I like my guns too much to let another Clinton into office.

Lots of pro-Castro, and plenty of pro-Chavez, too.

I loved to see the Democrats march like lemmings for HRC, rushing to judgement, "inevitable", etc., the candidate untested.

It troubles me that Her Highness has run into a rough spot with Obama and to a lesser extent Edwards, it means that the Dem's might actually be questioning her electability, and thereby make a better choice.

Of course when they did so in 2004 they came up with Lurch, (AKA John F. Kerry), so maybe no worries.

Meanwhile, I like that the Republican race is wide open, our candidate will have been better vetted than the Democrat.

Really? I'm so sorry. Did Mr. Hendrickson write the opening? Does Mr. Hendrickson refer to himself in the third person when saying:

"...the humble commentary of your guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, wondering how the DUmmies can ALMOST make Hillary into a sympathetic figure..."

Or did PJ write the opening? You decide.

"And if you disagree with the DUmmie collective, you get banned. You know, tombstoned. Just how does that equate to a debate?" - Ray

Yeah. Works both ways. I don't like it either.

RepubDUms don't ever ever ever worry about "electability". Never. And why should they when they have God, Country, and Intelligent design?

Besides, Publius, why should you be worried if the Dems make a better choice? Better than what? The Mittster? Huckster? Rudy "How you doin?" Gulliany? Hmmm.

No. Leave our troubles to us. We'll deal with it. We're encouraged by the fact that the American electorate would probably elect a herd of cattle instead of a Republican. So, no worries.

Nice to know that you can speak for the whole American electorate. Remember 1984, when it was going to be a race to close to call. Yeah, Reagan won 49 states.

If you think the win is yours just because we've had eight years of Dubya, you're dreaming. You guys will have to fight for it, and Hilary can lose it for you very very easily. Half, I repeat, half the country hates her, as in they will never vote for her. Of course, her husband didn't need half the vote either time to win.

Morons from Texas with the initials RP...they're a Clinton's best friend.

Am I? One could make a pretty solid argument that those on the right have been wrong about absolutely everything. Everything. Just because you're blind doesn't mean the rest of us are. Polls confirm this again and again. America doesn't like the president. America really doesn't like Cheney. And they really, really don't like congress. America doesn't like any of them.

My personal opinion is that the RepubliDUms don't stand a snowball's chance in hell of winning this election. Not that this will make things any better. But, we can stop the bleeding if we get our heads out of our asses.

Oh. They're playing Lennon's "Imagine" in Times Square. On New Year's Eve. Lots of cheers. Wingnutia must be frothing.

Bush is not running, and Cheney is not running.

None of the people running have been involved with the Bush administration in any way, and they sure as hell aren't gonna have Dubya or Dick at their rallies.

If it was 2005 I'd agree with you. But on the first day of 2008, as the surge continues to pacify Iraq, as the economy chugs along, as Hillary trots out a plane ride to Bosnia with Sinbad and Sheryl Crow as foreign policy experience, well I think we do have a real contest.

Right. Not one. Does anyone honestly buy this bullshit? Jeesh.

Both Bush and Cheney are running. Every decision made in the last 8 years is, unfortunately, a 100 pd weight around the neck of every republican, like it or not. If you're not able to grasp this simple concept then you have the brain of a watermelon.

Nothing wingnutia believes to be true is true. It's that simple. Most of America, except you britt, gets that.

HAHAHAHA

Bush is not running. He is retiring, and so is Cheney.

Rudy: Not a part of BushAdmin...federalism, look it up.

Mitt: Ditto Rudy, unless you want to count the Salt Lake Games as involvement.

Fred: Been acting, napping, sometimes both at the same time.

Huckabee: Governing Arkansas, lying, being corrupt (I cheated, reused my Bill Clinton description)

Ron Paul: Actually in the Federal government. Also batshit crazy. Coincidence? Maybe not.

You see? No connection. Not a single one. But hey, you are a member of the same community that believed the bogus exit polls in 2004. So whatever, keep on thinking you have the election sewed up.

Complacency is the ally of the Republican Party. So is your Congress with their incompetency. So is the success of the surge.


Oh, and please stop saying America is with you. If they were, I'd be in Gitmo for "emotional terrorism", "hate crimes", and of course, owning enough guns to occupy Paris. OK, bad example*.

McCain: Maverick, Gang of 14, pro-amnesty. Not a big fan of Bush. More importantly, not a member of the executive branch, and thus not a member of the Bush administration.
