"I'm DONE!!! Democratic Party can go to hell for all I care"
This may well be the angriest the DUmmies have ever been. That's saying something. This is Howard-Beale-mad-as-hell mad. This is Yosemite-Sam-steam-coming-out-his-ears mad. That's mad.
What are the DUmmies upset about? Their own Democrats. The health care bill their Senate is about to pass. Why? THERE'S NO PUBLIC OPTION!!! DUmmieland is about to IMPLODE!!! They're all ready to LEAVE the Democrat Party, even though they're posting on DEMOCRATIC Underground!! It's a mutiny! It's a riot! It's . . . Situation Normal, except more so.
Right now DUmmieland is FILLED with outraged threads. I've picked the current "Greatest," the one sitting atop the leader board, namely, this gentle and thoughtful THREAD, "I'm DONE!!! Democratic Party can go to hell for all I care."
So grab a blood pressure cuff and let us witness the implosion, in Apoplectic Red, while the mellow commentary of your humble guest corresponden, Charles Henrickson, counting down the days to November, is in the [brackets]:
I'm DONE!!! Democratic Party can go to hell for all I care
[They're working on it.]
Letting Joe Lieberman rule and laugh and not do a thing about it. Giving that lying sack of sh*t chairmanships and leverage while folks are dying.
[Little Joe is not a popular figure in DUmmieland today.]
I've been through good and bad on DU since 2001, but this was the most disgusting, hurtful thing I've had to witness in politics.
[More disgusting than a Barney Frank fundraiser?]
You can bet your ass I will not donate to DNC or anyone associated with this mess. I might even sit out this election.
Joe should go. gimme a dozen more Kucinich's, then we'll get some "change".
[Like a robust public option for men from Mars.]
Maybe Obama enjoys sharing the presidency with Joe.
[Barry wants to spread the wealth around with Joe the Insurance Agent.]
Let's see the Democrats 'get tough' for a change
[GET TOUGH, CREAM PUFF!]
Why is he not listening to voters and health care advocates like Howard Dean and the people who have screamed and hollered first for single payer then for at least a strong public option?
[Howard Dean, the Howard Beale of the Democrat Party. YEEEEAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!]
There are quite a few pissed off DU'ers here
This is the saddest day I can remember for being dem. . . .
[Cue the photo of the Crying DUmmie.]
Outrage is too tepid to describe my feelings.
[This is Elin-Nordegren-golf-club-in-her-hands mad!]
We've been had.
[We be mad.]
"F***ing Livid" works for me in times like these.
["Times like these" = every day I've ever been on DU.]
I have been carrying Obama's water here for weeks and now I'm done.
[No more H2Obama!]
I cannot believe how pissed and betrayed I feel.
[Not me. I BELIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!]
I did not expect a Democratic President and a Democratic Congress to force every American to have to purchase from a corporation their healthcare.
[NOBODY expects the Expanded Imposition!]
IT MAKES YOU REALIZE YOU'VE BEEN CHUMPED
We got seriously PUNK'D.
I see nothing but a burning bag of dogsh*t.
I'm about ready to puke on my computer.
[That's called "pulling a Pitt."]
now I'm prepared to vote against all my incumbents in the primaries if possible, but in the general for sure. If the Democrats won't help me get a better candidate in the primary, I'll vote Republican just to encourage other Democrats to run next time.
I'm really PISSED!!!!!
[Happy place, happy place. . . .]
We start campaigning for Kucinich for president 2012 and we start right now.
[Yes! Go for it!! "THE EVIL ELF FOR EQUAL HEALTH!!"]
You need a serious reality check if you actually believe that Kucinich has any kind of chance.
[Reality never stopped anyone in DUmmieland before.]
I want Kucinich to start a new party. . . . I want it to be a new left party of course..even call it the New Dem's or something. . . .
[Kookcinich can start the "Unidentified Fighting Oddballs" (UFOs).]
Democratic Underground should change a few ground rules and then change its name to Progressive Underground.
[Sorry, "PRUmmies" doesn't work.]
The message we send to the dems, when we continue to vote for the lesser of two evils, is that they can continue to betray democratic values because we'll continue to vote for them. It's total insanity. I don't think the dems realize how incensed the base is at this betrayal & that we have reached our boiling point.
[The Dems are the Per-DU Boilermakers!]
we need a leftist party in this country. . . . now all we need is a name for said party.
we need a cool mascot though. like a velociraptor.
[Sorry, you can't have our beaver!]
As long as it's waving a red flag, that's fine.
[The Soviet flag is available.]
Registered with the Socialist Party of Florida (Democratic Socialists, like Bernie Sanders in Vermont) a few weeks ago.
[Let's see, "Socialist Underground". . . . "SCUmmies"?]
We've been duped!
[DUped, I tell ya!]
I can't remember ever being this disgusted. . . .
[What about the Barbara Mikulski Swimsuit Issue?]
I will never vote for another democrat. . . .
[May your tribe increase!]
Health care "reform" that = a mandate to buy private insurance + expanded war + no jobs =
[THE FORMULA OF DISCORD!!!]
I won't get fooled again.
[Until next time.]
No more driving Dems to the polls on election day. . . .
[They'll have to WALK from the cemetery now!]
I feel sick to my stomach.
[EASY, Will! Slow down! The night is still young!]
The Democratic party will never get another dime from me. . . .
[Not One Dem Dime Day!!!]
We don't even exist.
[Did somebody say something?]
We cave, we placate, we let Leiberman stay meanwhile Republicans can have sex with prostitutes who are found dead and THEY GET AWAY WITH IT!
[In fact, they get away with it SO MUCH that . . . NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD OF IT!]
Yes, we've elected a bunch of feckless, gutless, corrupt jackasses to both houses of congress.
[But they're OUR feckless, gutless, corrupt jackasses. . . . This DUmmie will keep voting Democrat.]
Gutless bastards. . . . I am beyond disgusted. . . . We are stuck with a bunch of lying, sniveling pieces of crap. . . . They can all go f*** themselves...I just get angrier and angrier the more I type. . . .
[DUmmie ramapo, you win today's Peace, Love & Tolerance Award®! Congratulations!]
I feel sick.
[Hit the porcelain, Will!]
the mods have got their .22s cocked and ready. There's a whole lot of tombstonin' goin' on.
[Cocked and coded!]
Thankfully the mods are way to smart to mistake people venting genuine and understandable anger for trolls.
[Unless the mods themselves are . . . LOUSY FREEPER TROLLS!!!]
Great. Let's welcome the f***ing GOP back next year.
[I, for one, welcome our f***ing GOP overlords.]
Bye now, I'll let you all go back to your rising blood pressures. From what i've read here, i see a couple of nervous breakdowns, 1 heart attack, and three strokes in your futures. Hope you got good HEALTH INSURANCE!
