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?
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!]
[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.
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.
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.
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. . . .]
