DUmmie FUnnies 10th Anniversary!!!
Yesterday, my DUFU co-conspirator, Charles Henrickson, reminded me that today is the 10th anniversary of the DUmmie FUnnies which originated in the wake of the "fake but accurate" documents revelation of the 60 Minutes "revelation" about George W. Bush in the Texas Air National Guard. It was the start of many hilarious reactions of the DUmmies to events in the news, the next big one being John F. Kerry's loss in the election. And who can forget Fitzmas where WILLIAM RIVERS PITT is still waiting 24 business hours for Karl Rove to be indicted. So many of you might have wondered why so few stories recently.
Well, I have some lousy excuses but the primary ones are that almost everything the DUmmies have posted lately looks like a road already traveled and just didn't interest me. The other excuse is that I was deep into couponing. Some days I would work it from early A.M. until 11 P.M.. Okay, now that I got the excuses out of the way, let me tell you why things might soon change. IF the elections this year go the way I hope, then renewed angst from the DUmmies will provide fresh material for months or even years to come. As to couponing, something strange happened. In stark contrast to the incredible deals I used to see, such deals have become few and far between. My suspicion is that coupon consultants have been hired just to make coupon deals tougher. Suddenly stores have stricter rules and the coupon deals have gotten weaker and weaker. For example, up to about 3 years ago body was was frequently available for FREE almost every other week. Nowadays, you will be lucky to find such a deal twice in a year. This past July was my worst couponing month in five years...until August which was even worse. And now September appears to be even worse that August. Yeah, I still save money and still rarely pay full price for anything but the days of mass quantities of good for FREE via coupons appear to be over. Therefore, less time for couponing means more time for DUFUing. That plus hopefully good news early in November will mean a much higher frequency of the DUFUs.
Okay, so now a DUFU for today. In this case, we see that Hillary might not get the automatic coronation she is hoping for as you can see in this THREAD, "MSNBC: Climate activists not ready for Hillary." Almost as much FUn as a DUmmie meltdown would be a Hillary meltdown. This time Hillary MUST be coronated. It won't happen again. And the DUmmies apparently aren't going to make it easy for her. So let us now watch the DUmmies slam Hillary in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, looking forward to more DUmmie fireworks is in the [brackets]:
Climate activists not ready for Hillary
[Neither are DUmmies.]
NEW YORK – Some of the prominent environmental activists who gathered Sunday in New York City for a massive climate change march are not ready to support Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president.
[Vote Bernie and cause Hillary conniption fit.]
“I think Hillary Clinton has an awful lot to demonstrate to environmentalists and people who care about climate change,” Bill McKibben, the founder of 350.org, who helped organize the march, told msnbc. “She oversaw the complete fiasco that was the Copenhagen Conference as secretary of state. That was the biggest foreign policy failure since Munich. It’s not a proud record.”
[Since Munich? How about Benghazi?]
And on Sunday, Clinton allies defended her environmental bona fides. “As Secretary Of State, Hillary Clinton led efforts to combat the growing threat of climate change both at home and abroad. Clinton created a special envoy for climate change, and she launched the Climate and Clean Air Coalition – a group of 37 countries that agreed to work to reduce their emissions. At the Clean Energy Summit held recently in Nevada, Clinton said climate change is ‘the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges we face as a nation and a world,’” said Adrienne Watson of the pro-Clinton rapid response group Correct the Record.
[Rapid excuse is more like it and now on to the DUmmies...]
And speaking of war: Who's the single worst polluter on the planet? If you guessed, "The U.S. Defense Department," give yourself a prize. So, Hillary's unflagging support for military adventurism is not just a single issue. It's also an endorsement of climate destruction.
[So the Defense Department is the reason all those Chinese in Peking have to wear face masks while breathing their brown air?]
She betrayed us and joined with George Bush. How can you ever trust her?
[SHE BETRAYED US! </ algore_impression>]
'How Hillary Clinton's State Department sold fracking to the world'
[Don't worry. Matt Damon will still vote for Hillary.]
No more dynasties.
[I'll trade you a Jeb Bush for a Hillary Clinton to NOT run in 2016.]
There will be a robust primary with many challengers to the Inevitable.
[Who? Bernie and Biden?]
The Clintons will discover that it was way too early for them to start campaigning under the guise of the book tour - premature electionation will do them in as the errors in judgement when Hillary speaks keep piling up in that long duration of time to the election.
[Perhaps she will just continue to say NOTHING.]
They will not be able to hold up - Hillary started speaking out on many issues around the book opening, and then suddenly goes silent on current events, like Ferguson, and then takes a bland, noncommittal stance that a focus group suggests is best, as to not alienate anyone. This is not leadership material and people are getting it.
[Despite the clamshell act, she can still get nominated.]
