Front Burner

8th Congressional District candidate Darcy Burner earned two posts on Slog today, the first from Eli Sanders pointing to the national Dems growing confidence in her campaign, and the second from Dan Savage asking you to help put her over the top of her quarterly fundraising target. I agree with both, but especially want to emphasize the latter.

The national Dems are paying attention to Darcy Burner’s race and they’ve got a bunch of money to dump on her

    re 12: Gingrich , “Boner”, and DeLay were not “wiretapped”. Their cellular phone calls were intercepted by perfectly legal scanner that you can buy at any Radio Shack. A couple recorded the conversation which was between several highly placed Republican politicians about how best to proceed with a CRIMINAL COVER-UP of Gingrich’s political crimes.

    I sent my $50! And I plan to send her at least $50 every month until November. I’m in her district, so I get to vote for her, and she’s one of the few candidates who’ll get some of my volunteer time this year, too.

    Anti-Goldy,

    “Get your facts straight dipshit, I’m not at PLU.”

    Thank God! You escaped with your wingnut “values” intact!

    “As for recruiting, I’d have considered it before I graduated (something you don’t seem to have ever done, judging from the discourse here), but they don’t let recruiters on campus anymore.”

    Hmmmm…maybe the liberals have gotten to you afterall. I sense a reluctance to go and fight for your country. You can overcome, AG, you can overcome. Sign-up today!

    “What’s with all of the ‘join the military’ cracks anyways? I thought you guys were against the war ;0)”

    We just want the “right” people fighting it. I mean, the neocon effort has been so utterly fucked-up in every way. It must be because there are too many liberals in the military.

    See what you can do to help!

    And Anti-G, we are agaisnt the Iraq war, that is why we want all the supporters of the war to go there and die for Haliburton.

    Geez…I might be willing to offer you a bet on that, but given the Wingnut track-record on paying up on bets ’round here (Read: the dishonorable Mark the Thieving Redneck), I’ll have to pass. After all, I ALWAYS make good on my bets.

    But, Anti-Goldy, you come off as such a sincere and fine young man. I don’t understand why you are poisoning you mind at a liberal recruitment facility like PLU. Wouldn’t you be better off in Iraq, where the President can REALLY make good use of your capabilities?

    I strongly recommend you get the hell out of that liberal institution and visit a recruiter! The sooner the better!

    Thanks for all you do Goldy.

    BTW: Richard Pope believes Klake’s use of Nazi Publications is appropriate when trying to prove the hilariously evil bullshit that “More Black people and Indians owned slaves that white people did”.

    Richard Pope stand as much chance of winning an elected office as Mark The Welsher Reddick does.

    Goldy-You’re such a fucktard, man. Darcy Burner is going to get burnt, bad. Reichert’s voted against the majority on several key issues; that’s already scored him points with moderates who don’t want a rubber-stamp Republican.

    My prediction: Burner loses to Reichert by more than 5% of the vote.

    MTR ANTI-HATRED VIGIL: DAY 4

    On Sunday, March 26, Mark the Redneck claimed the following:

    “Me? hate and intolerance? When? Give me an example.
    No, you guys have cornered the market on hate and intolerance.”

    Commentby Mark The Redneck— 3/26/06@ 3:38 pm

    This comment was pretty cheeky, because MTR has proposed genocide far larger than that perpetrated by the Nazis:

    “There are 6 billion people in the world. 2 billion of them are muslim. That means that all the rest of need to pair up and kill one of them. When we all do that, the problem will be solved. And it really is like a cancer… you hafta get every trace of it… every cell, or it will come out of remission with a vengeance. This also solves the global population problem you guys are so worried about, so we kill two birds with one stone.”

    I just think it’s hilarious that you guys actually think you can knock of Reichert with such a low caliber candidate. You might have a chance if you had a real candidate, say, Ross Hunter or Laura Ruderman. You know, someone with experience and a resume that isn’t worth laughing at?

    But some random retired Microsoft employee? Hell, I’ve got more experienced, qualified candidates sitting around my friends kitchen table on some random night playing $10 poker.

    You’d have a better chance of knocking off Jeb Bush with some random trial attorney, and last I heard that didn’t go so well.

    Well, Vagina Lips, that depends. The government wiretaps drug dealers and other assorted suspected criminals all the time (warrant required, ‘natch). The results are problematical, to say the least. In this case, the “chill” factor obviously did not work, since Newt and his criminal co-conspirators continued with their crime.

    So let us turn the question back to you: Are you stupid, or just a moron?
