Palin e-mails cause Freudenschade breakout in DUmmieland!
"Freudenschade" is defined in the DUFU Dictionary as the premature elation of the DUmmies when they pop the champagne corks too soon and then have to taste DUst in their mouth when things go south. The term originated when the DUmmies were SURE Fitzmas was just around the corner, and one of them rejoiced with the malaprop, "Freudenschade, baby!" So every time we see a Freudenschade moment over at the DUmp, it gives us big LAFFS here at DUmmie FUnnies!
We have such a moment now. The release of Governor Sarah Palin's e-mails promised to be a TREASURE TROVE of embarrassment for Caribou Barbie. The DUmmies were excited, licking their chops! "Wait till we SEE all the airheadedness on display! Oh boy oh boy oh boy!! I can hardly wait!" Then came E-Day. Planeloads of journalists were dispatched to Juneau to finetooth-comb the stuff. And what did they find? Nothing. No gotchas. Just a hard-working governor taking care of business. What a letdown! DUmmies disappointed, big-time. And that, my friends, is Freudenschade!
A whole lot of Palin e-mail threads over the last few days. We'll pick and choose from several, starting with these threads:
THREAD, "Alaska to Release (Over 24,000 of) Palin’s E-Mails"
THREAD, "sarah palin’s e-mails: What to expect"
THREAD, "Washington Post asks for help to investigate Palin emails."
THREAD, "Sarah Palin Emails to be Released"
So let us go to DUmmieland and ride the roller coaster called the Freudenschade Express, in 24,000 Pages Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, reminding you that Palin Madness Syndrome (PMS) has no known cure, is in the [brackets]:
Alaska to Release (Over 24,000 of) Palin’s E-Mails
[Oh boy! 24,000 Ditziness Hours! Freudenschade, baby!]
Are taxpayers going to get hit with the cost of translating them into English?
[They're looking for volunteers who read Palinese.]
I hope they expose this grifter for who she is once and for all
[E-Day is coming! Tomorrow she goes down!]
sarah palin’s e-mails: What to expect
[The end of Sarah Palin! WHEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!]
Misspellings and bitterness
A lot of wink smilies and frequent use of "ya betcha".
[ ;^) ]
this could be hugely embarrasing for Palin.
[It's the END, I tell you, the end!!]
Washington Post asks for help to investigate Palin emails.
[Get Journalist Pitt on the line. He could get a SCOOP!]
We should put together a Democratic Underground team. I want in on that action!
Sarah Palin is braced for the release of tens of thousands of pages of emails sent when she was governor of Alaska and which opponents say could damage a potential run for the White House.
[Braced for the damage! Oh, this will be gooooood!!!]
Which explains the timing of her bus tour. Fleece her followers quickly before they see what a total nitwit she is.
[TOTAL nitwit!! Yes! WOO-HOO!!!]
I'm popping popcorn, how about you?
[I'm popping the CHAMPAGNE, baby! WHEEEEEEE!!!!]
I have to admit a certain guilty anticipation of the level of insipid dumbness likely to be revealed. I believe they will be comedy gold.
[Comedy gold! I BELIEEEEEEVE!!!!!!!!]
oooo fun fun fun
[Let the FUn begin!!!]
live blog for the Palin email release. The first emails are online now.
[The moment we've been waiting for!!!!]
It might be interesting to see a few good mooseburger recipes
[Yes, Mooselini in the kitchen! I love it! Oooh, I'm so excited!!]
It looks like the emails are Al Capone's vault. nothing there.
sounds like they really didn't find anything important in all these emails.
[Just unimportant stuff like a governor doing her job. What a letdown!]
m$nbc says it...'sarah palin emails will help her...no smoking guns'
[Help her?? HELP her????]
Makes her look both like the victim AND just an ordinary gawd-fearin' governor. It's a win win for Sarah Palin.
[A win win. Hee! Hee!]
[Irrelevant. That's why the East Coast newspapers airlifted 24,000 reporters to Juneau to cover this stuff.]
She has been playing the media like a fiddle.
[Don't fret. She's irrelevant, you know.]
Impact of released messages: Palin runs? The batch of emails long sought-after seem to have painted her in a positive light. It may even propel her into a candidacy. . . .
[Batch set her up.]
Her luck is unreal. . . .
