Tears flow in DUmmieland: "I'm all choked up..."
Tears are flowing in DUmmieland. And no, it's not from the pepper spray. It's because America--at least the Democrat Party--has had the goodness and enlightenment to NOMINATE AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN! Boo hoo! Sob! I can't believe I lived to see this day! Pardon me, I'm a little verklempt! Talk amongst yourselves. . . .
There, I'm better now. As I was saying, this is a very moving moment for the DUmmies. So let's begin with a musical tribute to White Guilt. Click the link and sing along:
THE LIB'RAL WHITE CROWD THAT CRIED
Tune: "The Little White Cloud That Cried" Original
I was thinking, "Down goes Obama"
Feeling Barry's sure to slide
When all at once I saw, filled with drama
The lib'ral white crowd that cried
They told me they believe what he preaches
And no one cares what he tries to hide
They said sometimes just warm fuzzy speeches
Make all the lib'ral crowds cry
They said Barack will solve all our issues
Heal our souls, still all our fears
Don't ask how, just pass us the tissues
Our eyeballs flow with tears
They asked me why the rest of the voters
Don't believe, their eyeballs are dry
That's how I know that come this November
The lib'ral white crowd will sit right down and cry
The laughably lachrymose THREAD is called, "I'm all choked up..." So grab a hankie and take me out to the bawl game, in blubbering Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, almost ready to join the worshipful multitudes tomorrow night at the Barackropolis, is in the [Barackets]:
I'm all choked up...
[I'm in love! I'm all choked up!]
When I was born Black & poor over 60 years ago in rural Mississippi there was no way I could have ever even remotely conceived this moment.
[This sixty-year-old black man from Mississippi is probably really a forty-year-old white lesbian from Massachusetts.]
Should I not live to see this election through. . . .
[Being a poor black sharecropper in Mississippi is rough enough, but then there's always the threat of lynchings.]
Thank you America....
[Thank you, Barack America. Now let's hear from the other crying DUmmies. . . .]
And reading that got me all teared up. Bless you.
[Kumbayah, my Lord, Kumbayah. . . .]
I cried during the nom too & I made my husband watch!
[I guess he knows how to get some action in the bedroom later.]
"This is history! You make me watch great football plays. For me this is a great play!"
["Sure, dear, whatever you say . . ." (as he mentally reviews his fantasy football picks).]
Beautifully stated....may you live to see all of Obama's eight years as President and many more.
[Eight is enough! In fact, ONE year of Obama as President would be too much.]
Now I am crying also. . . .
I just wish that certain *white* people on this board and in the "liberal" blogosphere had the decency to not be such @$$holes and work to play African-descended people against women during this cycle.
[Let me guess, you're one of the Hillary Harridans.]
Iowa here sharing your tears...
[WEAR THE TEAR!]
Passing Kleenex. . . .
[That must be painful.]
Now you have ALL of us teared-up! I'm just so happy we can share these tears of absolute joy with each other.
This 57 year old, white, ex-combat infantryman, is getting a little misty as well.
[. . . wrote the 27-year-old transgendered grad student.]
Oh jaysunb, you make me cry, I am so happy and joyous for you.....
[It's blubberin' time!]
D*mn You. Now you got me blubbering like some old fool.
[That's because you ARE an old fool.]
This convention is making me go through the tissues like no tomorrow.
[But save some for tomorrow, when we make the pilgrimage to the Barackropolis.]
Congratulations - to all of us.
[We are the ones we've been waiting for.]
I can't help but think that folks like Rosa and Malcolm and Dr. King and all those involved with the movemnt helped free us all -- blacks from their oppression and whites from their bigotry.
[Therefore, since we've all been freed from oppression and bigotry, when Obama loses in November, it will simply be because he's a lousy candidate, right?]
Your post just got me teary!!
I'm crying with you. . . .
your post brings tears to my eyes. . . .
[Glub, glub, glub. . . .]
I had no idea I'd be so hyperventilating during all this. . . .
[Careful with thos asphyxiation games, ben.]
my emotions are way over the top!
[That's why you're a liberal.]
I promise you - that I will do all I can to get Barack Obama elected in November.
[Barack will call you when he needs you, Rev. Wright.]
I'm white and 46 (today) and am sitting here crying with you.
[It's my party and I'll cry if I want to, cry if I want to. . . .]
Now I'm getting weepy, too.
Now I'm going to cry!
The tears are flowing.
[Flash flood warnings are in effect. . . .]
This is the mountain top.
[Please make the fountain stop.]
You have shouldered the hurt and I as a white have shouldered the embarrassment.
[White Guilt in a NUTshell.]
New Hampshire unanimous for OBAMA!
[Indonesia unanimous for OBAMA!]
It's a great day for Americans and the world!
[Bah, who cares about Americans? It's what the WORLD thinks that counts!]
[WHITE GUILT lives.]
I'm a 32 year old middle class white girl . . .
[. . . pretending to be the son of a black sharecropper.]
I can hardly read the thread titles.
[We'll hold a fundraiser for you, sfexpat2000.]
Barack Obama, the first African American president of the united states.
[Well, sort of--on the African, American, and President parts.]
There are no words.
[For Democrats, there are ONLY words.]
As a Canadian, I have followed the Primaries and now the Convention.
[Take care of your own country, you stupid hockey puck.]
rest assured many people from all over the world are rejoicing with you all.
[They LIKE us, they really like us!]
As a person originally from the Caribbean, I really do share your sentiment.
[Parrots of the Caribbean.]
Stock up on those tissues, you will need them for Inauguration Day.
[Stock up on those tissues, you will need them for Election Night.]
I've never been as proud to be an American as I am today.
[Is that you, Michelle?]
You'll see the election. And we'll toast victory along side of you.
[WHEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! Freudenschade, baby!]
this old white woman found herself crying too.
[There, there, Hillary. There's always 2012. . . .]
This is not the end of racism, but IT IS, FOR CERTAIN, THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF RACISM.
[Gotta give yourself that escape clause for when Barry loses in November. . . .]
Hugs to you.
[God bless us, every one!]
