Sixth Anniversary Edition: It's not easy being a DUmmie
Today the DUmmie FUnnies is celebrating its SIXTH ANNIVERSARY! WOO-HOO! Yes, it was on September 22, 2004, that PJ-Comix posted the first official DUFU as its own feature on Free Republic. Over the years--and over a thousand Pingees later--we have found hours of endless entertainment in the rantings and ravings of the DUmmies of Democratic Underground, the KOmmies of Daily Kos, and the HUffies of Huffington Post. The Looney Left has provided us with loads of laffs!
And so for our Sixth Anniversary Edition, I have chosen a piece of quintessential DUmmieness, here in this THREAD by DUmmie nashville_brook, "It's not easy being a Democrat."
In keeping with that theme, let's begin the festivities with this musical salute to our friends on the far-out left. Click a music link and sing along!
Tune: "Bein' Green" MIDI Original
It's not that easy bein' DUmb
Havin' to manage with a mind that's kinda numb
When I think it could be nicer
Bein' sane or lucid or smart
Or something much more sensible than DUmb
It's not that easy bein' DUmb
It seems you squirm and suffer, not like all those lousy freeper scum
And people tend to think you're looney
'Cause you're out standing in the nighttime barkin' like a moonbat
Or beating a drum
But DUmb's the lot in life of some
And DUmb can be frank's fellow alum
And DUmb can be big like a bouncer
Or important like a pundit
Or poor like a bum
When DUmb is where you're comin' from
It could make you rather glum
But I'll just go flap my gums
I'm DUmb and it'll DU fine
And I think it's what I have become
So let us now explore the exciting world of DUmmiedom, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, the wag tailoring the doggerel, Charles Henrickson, barely getting this DUFU in before our anniversary turns into a pumpkin, is in the [brackets]:
It's not easy being a Democrat.
[It's not easy being a DUmmie.]
Democrats, unlike Republicans, have the burden and the honor of representing The People of the country.
[Democrats are People. Republicans are . . . unlike People.]
As such, we're a multi-faceted group with a spectrum of interests reflecting the amazing quilt of Americans. . . .
[The DUmmies are a regular CRAZY QUILT of odds and ends! Well, mostly odds. . . .]
We're women and men.
[Sometimes at the same time.]
Gay and straight.
[GSLTBQRSTUV. . . .]
Hispanic, Anglo, African-American, Asian-American. From European roots. Christian, Muslim, Atheist, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish.
[Strike that "Christian" part. Anything but that!]
Some are more privileged. Some come from nothing. Some are homeless. Some are unemployed. Some of us belong to Unions. Some work in professional services. Some in medical fields. Some are artists. Some are mothers. Some are childless. Some are disabled. Some speak english as a second language. Some speak english as a fifth or sixth language.
[Some write English as a form of torture.]
Some of us live in densely populated cities.
[Some of us are just dense.]
Some of us live on farms.
[You ALL live on our DUmmie Ant Farm! Hee! Hee!]
Some on the coast.
[Some in the basement.]
We're the every-changing fabric of this country. . . .
[You're the Polyester of Political Posturing.]
we don't believe that the magic hand of the free market will solve any of our problems.
[Marxists, not markets!]
we're a party of The People, and that's messy.
[Especially when it's people like benburch.]
As Democrats, it's our job to lift up those people up. . . .
[Good luck lifting up Fat Che!]
When we go to the table, we have to bring everyone with us.
[Except the rethuglicans. And the teabaggers. And the fundies. And. . . . OK, thank you, DUmmie nashville_brook. Now let's hear from your fellow inmates . . .]
Well said. It makes it even harder when the people supposedly representing us make sport of throwing as many of us under the bus as is humanly possible.
It is tough, this being a Democrat. . . . But, if you are gonna play in the pool, you have to choose which end to swim in... the deep end, or the shallow end with the babies.
[The DUmmies have gone off the deep end.]
I hope every Democrat has a chance to read this. . . .
[I hope every Democrat can read.]
So well said I wish I could Rec this 100 times!
[A Democrat getting ready for Election Day, I see.]
we have to wrap our arms around each other. . . .
[Again, good luck doing that with ben!]
We are bankers, defense contractors, and health insurers??
[No! Boo! They are not People!]
We *are* the world. We *are* the village.
[The village idiots. But that's what we love about you guys! Thanx and a big MWUH! from all of us here at DUmmie FUnnies for making this a FUn six years!]
