"In the last 10 years our nation has changed beyond recognition."

The DUmmies are as down in the DUmps as can be. They are morose. They are glum. They are in a blue funk. Why? America is OVER! Finis. Kaput. Stick a fork in her. The Democrats have bitterly disappointed, and now the Rethugs are on the rise. The corporatist "THEY" are in firm control. Hopeless, all is hopeless.

Of course, these drama queen gloom-and-doom lamentations spell FUn for us here at DUmmie FUnnies! I call your attention to Exhibit A, this
THREAD, "In the last 10 years our nation has changed beyond recognition."

This thread comes from our old friend, DUmmie madfloridian. You remember her. She's the Howard Dean groupie who would try to make every thread about the unappreciated Howard Dean, to the extent that even other DUmmies would get sick of her, and then she would sulk and threaten to leave. Maybe this song will refresh your memory. Click the link and sing along!

Tune: "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady"

She is the most grouchiest Marxist
Under the ground
Pitt! Ferrari! Bobo!
Rolled in a mound. . . .

Ohhh. . . .
It's madfloridian
She's done flipped her lid again
Floridian, the bad mood DUmmie
She's a Howard Dean fanatic
With a knack for things dramatic

It's madfloridian
That DUmmieland idiot
Floridian, the queen of DU
When attacked she will threaten to leave the zoo
But five minutes later she's crying "boo hoo"
There's always a "don't" but there's never "adieu"
You can laugh at madfloridian!

When her thread hits the scene
And it's all filled with Dean
Don't you speak up and criticize
For that's when you will see
She's a martyr DUmmie
Contending to win the self-pity prize

Oh, it's madfloridian
She's done flipped her lid again
Floridian, the bad mood DUmmie
She's depressed about Obama
Everything's a melodrama

It's madfloridian
That DUmmieland idiot
Floridian, the queen of DU
When attacked she will threaten to leave the zoo
But five minutes later she's crying "boo hoo"
There's always a "don't" but there's never "adieu"
You can laugh at madfloridian!

Well, madfloridian is not the only DUmmie singing the blues these days. So let us go down to the DUmp and view the melancholy, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, the wag tailoring the doggerel, sad only because he doesn't have the Zoloft and Paxil concession for DUmmieland, is in the [brackets]:

In the last 10 years our nation has changed beyond recognition.

[The Decade We Decayed.]

In 2000 we saw a side of our neighbors and friends we had never seen before. The election was divisive enough to bring out the radical side of people we had known for years. In 2003 it was a nightmare. . . . Our neighbors had signs in their yards supporting the president and the war.

[NEVER BEFORE had such things happened!]

Hubby and I realized our neighbors were conservatives, we were not.

[The people down the block were . . . were MONSTERS! ALIENS! It was like a Twilight Zone episode or something!]

In 2003 we got excited because someone in our party was speaking out and saying that it was wrong to go to war when the truth was not being told.

[Hmm, madfloridian, I wonder who that someone could be. . . .]

He wondered out loud why out Democratic leaders were voting for Bush's unilateral war on Iraq.

[Is he someone whose name we would know?]

He wondered why we were supported Bush's tax cuts. . . .

[Might he be a former governor of Vermont and a one-time presidential candidate?]

In fact that guy was on Rachel Maddow tonight saying the same thing.

[I'm gonna go out on a limb here. Does his name start with Howard Dean?]

He said something else tonight also on her show. He said that . . . that . . . that. . . . He said. . . .

[If Howard Dean says anything, anywhere, madfloridian will report it.]

Hubby and I both got tears at that because we know he is right.

[In your heart you know he's right.]

He tried to change the system, and was chair when we took back the House, the Senate, and the White House. Then the party leaders made sure there was no place for him among them. The cut off started at once, and it was swift and to the point.

[Where have you gone, Howard Dean? Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you!]

I see that the very same centrists who helped run the DLC and the Third Way are forming a new party. They are calling it a centrist party, and the official name is the No Labels party. . . . They think the Democratic party as it exists now has been taken over by liberals, I guess.

[I can't imagine how anybody could have gotten such an idea!]

our party, instead of standing with its so-called liberals...has denounced them and moved right. . . . There should have been someone to stop it. There has not been.

[All because we did not fully appreciate the wonderful and amazing Howard Dean! Oh, sorrow! Oh, regret! Oh, let's hear from the other DUmmies . . .]

there is no one looking out for us. no one.

[John Kerry has your back. So I've heard. You know, the guy who served in Vietnam?]

I, plus so many more like me, will not go quietly into the night. . . . I decided to do something unexpected. I have made this decision fully expecting to end up on the DHS hit list or dead. No biggie, our forebears took such risks to establish this democracy. Death is just one price we might have to pay to help insure that our amazing democracy evolves further. When I have the key components of my advocacy in place, DUers will hear all about it. . . . More to come, and I respectfully remain, Ms. Silence B. Damned

[DUmmie chervilant, aka Ms. Silence B. Damned, has a PLAN! She will NOT go quetly into the night! DUAC! DUAC!]

Maybe it's time for us....I mean, maybe the American Empire is over.

[OK, forget that activism stuff. It's over.]

I think the reason why I feel such deep despair is that I sense the tide of history turning against us.

[Tsunami Tuesday was a bummer, DUde.]

Obama is part and parcel of the problem. I hope he is a one-termer. . . .

[The Rise and Fall of an American Messiah. There's your title; now somebody can write the book.]

This is my 10,000th post on DU. I had thought I would post something profound. . . . I see that is not necessary. . . .

[In fact, on DU, it's not even possible!]

Paul Wellstone tried.

And he was killed for his efforts. I will never believe he had an "accident". . . . There are no "accidents" anymore.

Airplanes are pretty convenient for murder especially those with a political agenda. I also believe Karl Rove had his hand in the murder of Mike Connell to keep the lid on the crooked election in Ohio in 2004.

[Fear the Rove.]

Rock stars, athletes, and politicians die in plane crashes because they are in planes so often.


Frustrated and angry describes it well.

["FRUSTRATED AND ANGRY" should be inscribed on the entrance to DUmmieland.]

Unfortunately our best option right now is raising hell within the party as pushing the pendulum back through our once in a generation mandate seems to have failed.

[EPIC Fail! So go with that "raising hell within the party" option.]

Throw in that mix a fanatical religious twist and we have America 2010. These people will not be satisfied until they control every American's life with their fantatical religous beliefs (sound familiar). They will not be happy until Corporations can poisen us, kill us in the workplace and pay us pennies for 12 hours a day.

[THEY! I hate They!]

Hopefully, Obama will be reelected so that he can prevent the Teatard Movement and the Repigs from denting any further progress that we've made towards healing our economy and cleaning up the enormous mess left by Bush and his cronies.

[You know, the Democrats may have to run against Bush for the next 50, 60 years. It will take that long to clean up the mess. Maybe forever.]

I dread thinking of the world my grandchildren will grow up in. And I must take some blame for not doing enough to keep it from happening.

[The central question is: Did you support Howard Dean or not?]

I've started squirreling away those huge bags of rice from Costco and am trying to get a friend to teach me to hunt.

[If you hit your prey JUST RIGHT with one of those huge bags of rice, you will at least stun it!]

Sometimes I wonder who I am and why I bothered. . . . We need to examine where it all went WRONG...because it was a HORRID F*** UP!

[January 19, 2004. West Des Moines, Iowa. "YEEEEEEEAAAAAAAARRRGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!" And you . . . are there.]

It wasn't so much a f***up as it was a victory by the reptiles. Reptilian Republicanism. Maybe I just invented another useful meme.

[I have a meme! Gordon Gekko, Lizard Cheney--it all fits!]

If you want to see a picture of the future...imagine a boot stamping a human face, forever. . . .

[Jack-booted rethugs! D*MN them!]

George W. Bush . . . was elected by the only votes that mattered that year. He won 5-4 in the Supreme Court. May those five rot in Hell, if there is such a place.

[A provisional damning.]

I campaigned hard for Barack Obama. Now I'm looking abandoned and stupid to all the family and friends whom I'd persuaded that Obama was 'really different.'

[HA HA! < /nelson> ]

madfloridian Has Been so effective in almost all of her posts, and yet... here we sit!

["Here I sit. I can do no other." --Martin DUther]

It seems to be falling apart bit by bit and I for one am feeling more and more helpless by the day! The HORIZON . . . looks very bleak! I've commented til I'm blue in the face and still we are at THEIR MERCY! I KNOW we must do something, we really must because THEY won't! They're coming to take it all away and we seem powerless to stop ANY OF IT!

[Vague discontent! Free-floating anxiety! THEY! Oh NOES!]

What in the world has paralyzed us? media? apathy? hopelessness? we should all be in the streets . . .

[Playing in the traffic.]

I think we want to take the high road. . . .

[You're less likely to be hit there.]

It's the same with almost all Dem politicians. Are they afraid of the Rove style tactics, threatened with their lives if they speak out?

[Think of all the Democrat politicians who have died: Wellstone. Byrd. Ted Kennedy. JFK. FDR, for goodness' sake! All struck down by that evil man! D*MN him!]

I would give my life if it would make this a better nation, and they should be willing to do the same. Fear is not an option now. People are already dying in droves - in war, from lack of healthcare, freezing to death on the streets - and its only going to get worse.

[Fear NOT the Rove! Rise up! People are dying! In droves! In the streets!]

Howard Dean should be back running the Democratic party (he should never have left), but we all know that will never happen.

[Oh, if only! The one man who would stand up to the corporatists! No, he's too good for us! There will never be another Howard Dean in our lifetime!]

*I* recognize this place. It's become soviet russia. . . .

[Isn't that what you want? The atheistic Workers' Paradise and all that?]

The cream doesn't rise to the top. The crap does.

[Words to live by.]

Oh, what a world these monsters have created for us, our children, and our grandchildren. I am becoming afraid again.

[Hide! Stock up on giant rice bags and flee to your storm cellars! It's OVER!]

I have a friends and family that I simply can't be around due to their hard right political and religious beliefs and actions.

[All the more reason to get in your storm cellars! Truly, Democratic UNDERGROUND!]

it ALL DRIED UP...THE MONEY...AND...the SUPPORT for VOTING MACHINE REFORM! WHO KILLED IT AND WHY? We've never investigated it......we just "MOVED ON." At some point just "MOVING ON" means you didn't clean up a mess and you can't sell your house or be a respected citizen if you leave SH*T ALL OVER THE PLACE and MOVE OUT AND ON! WHO TOOK CARE OF THE SH*T that was LEFT THERE? REPUGS? DEMOCRATS?.........or is that SH*T LEFT THERE STILL DENYING Us the ABILITY TO MOVE ON and ACHIEVE ANYTHING?

"If you want to see a picture of the future...imagine a boot stamping a human face,forever."

The future looks Orwelleian in DUmmieland as jack-booted Rethuglicans break down basement doors and kick liberal ass.

A DUmmie apocalypse pends as "madfloridian" plans to immolate hereself in some empty gesture. Meanwhile other DUmmies are stocking up on canned food and learning hunting skills---look for a rise in accidental gunshot wounds.

And this is a lefty problem? Are you fuckers blind to your own rhetoric or what? Christ.

"his leadership would cause the "downfall" of the country."We are becoming a weak nation," he said, calling Obama a "false prophet" and his administration the "Obama oppression."

"What cannot be done through the legislative process can be done by other means. Whether they are ethical, legal, or constitutional or not is another matter altogether."

"Al Gore's not going to be rounding up Jews and exterminating them. It is the same tactic, however. The goal is different. The goal is globalization...And you must silence all dissenting voices. That's what Hitler did. That's what Al Gore, the U.N., and everybody on the global warming bandwagon"

Are you asswipes seriously saying you've been level-headed about your own stupid dire predictions? You guys scream "socialist", "communist", "hitler", and "Kenyon", at every opportunity.

Remember when we're we talking about high-powered remote controls capable of switching off Fox News? Remember when were we talking about the black riots during the Dem's convention?

Wanna talk drama queens? I'll kick your collective asses. Secret Muslim. Secret re-indoctrination camps. Secret black reparations. I could go on and on.

When it comes to bug-eyed psychotic, you guys take second to no one.

I stopped wearing my What Would Jesus -- band -- Do, and I've lost all sense of right and wrong now."

"The first thing that has to be done is secure the border ... East Germany was very, very able to reduce the flow. Now, obviously, other things were involved. We have the capacity to, as a great nation, secure the border. If East Germany could, we could."

These stupid platitudes don't suit you, elrond. You've probably started drinking Bud Light and are...liking it. Are you aware of the depth of your betrayal, elrond?. I pray for you.

Looks like we're going to get another 2 years of the Bush tax cuts. Why don't you try to convince me that this is a good idea, elrond. Wouldn't that be time better spent than this pointless swimming in a cesspool of filthy insults and pointless name-calling (not to say that I, troglaman, don't find the 'filthy insult' game intriguing)?

Convince me, my Bud Light swill drinking friend. Tell me why this will be good for the country.

Whatever you think, I don't drink lite beer, I'm a Two Hearted Ale man.

I'm still considering this deal. But it's Obama's first real defeat, which is for the good (and it occured during the lame duck Congress with the Donks still in control). The Left is in turmoil which is also for the good.

I'm beginning to think it's marginally okay.

No, it's not his first real defeat.

I'm undecided about this current deal. If it means passing START, extends unemployment, ends DADT, and reduces the payroll tax for a year or two in exchange for a 2 year tax cut for the rich for a few hundred billion added to the deficit?...I think I'd take that deal.

We'll see.
