I hear the phrase “exit strategy” and I automatically think about Iraq, and the Bush administration’s lack of a strategy (or desire) to get out of that ill-conceived war. So as we exit 2007 it’s important to pay attention to our own strategy for exiting the disastrous policies of the past seven years. Looking at the obstructionism of the Republicans in Congress and their party’s steadfast determination to stay the course at home and abroad, my personal exit strategy begins with more and better Democrats… and locally, that begins with Darcy Burner.

The 4th Quarter fundraising period is drawing to a close, and where Darcy stands in relation to Dave Reichert and to her fellow Democratic challengers will largely determine the level of financial and logistical support she will initially receive from the DCCC and other organizations. A strong showing will put Darcy near the top of the list, positioning her to make a strong run out of the gate in 2008. A disappointing showing could set her campaign back into the second tier of competitive races, giving Reichert the breathing room he so desperately needs.

Darcy needs your help to prove to the folks in D.C. that she has what it takes to kick Reichert’s ass, and that’s why I’m asking you to give whatever you can to help push Darcy’s 4th Quarter results over the top. Darcy is hoping to raise an additional $25,000 by the end of the quarter — if we all chip in, she can do that and more, and we can all do our part in bringing change to the other Washington.

Please give to Darcy Burner today.

The best exit strategy for Republicans is the door that opens to the alley 10 stories below. Hey — just kidding! Holiday wingnut humor.

2. Roger Rabbit spews:

In the true spirit of Republican Christmas cheer, Don Brunell, boss of the Association of Washington Business, is bitching about Washington’s minimum-wage workers getting a 14-cent an hour inflation adjustment.

Funny how Brunell isn’t bitching about his Republican business owner clients raising prices. Or about the inflation-inducing policies of the Republican administration. He seems to think our state’s poorest workers should bear the burden of the Bush Inflation by themselves while rich Republican business owners skate.

Brunell is also whining about the “burden on small businesses” of unemployment insurance, workers’ compensation, health care, and regulations. They’re costs of doing business, asshole!

Fucking grinch … I just knew some jerk was going to come along and spoil the holiday spirit.

If Darcy isn’t in the top 5 of the DCCC’s support list than they’re even more of a bunch of dopes than I think they are. I will always support individual Democratic candidates. I will never support the corrupt Democratic party.

In other news, Republicans are up to their same-old dirty tricks again …

“S.C. Republicans Get Bogus Romney Card

“COLUMBIA, S.C. (Dec. 30) – Many South Carolina Republicans got a bogus holiday greeting card this week, purported to be from … Mitt Romney, that cites … controversial passages of the Book of Mormon. …

“‘It is sad and unfortunate that this kind of deception and trickery has been employed,’ said Will Holley, Romney’s South Carolina spokesman. ‘There is absolutely no place for it in American politics.’

“South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Katon Dawson said he intends to ‘contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Elections Fraud Division and other appropriate authorities, provide them the copy of the mail piece delivered to South Carolina Republicans and ask for a thorough investigation into this matter.’

“The card contains passages that underscore some differences between the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and those of denominations that are prevalent in South Carolina. ‘We have now clearly shown that God the Father had a plurality of wives, …,’ reads one passage …. The card also cites a passage on Mary’s virgin birth that underscores her race. ‘ … I beheld a virgin, and she was exceedingly fair and white.’ …

“Romney’s faith has been a recurring issue in South Carolina, where Christian conservatives dominate the GOP primary.”

How is the Democratic Party corrupt? We don’t do stuff like you see @4. For filthy and evil behavior, Democrats don’t even come close to the slobbering knuckledraggers of the GOP … the worst we do is a little internecine mudslinging, which by the way is a family affair and none of you goobers’ business.

Using lawyers to file legal challenges to Nader being on the ballot is … what? Illegal? Immoral? Unethical? How? If the guy doesn’t meet a state’s legal requirements for getting on the ballot, he shouldn’t be on the ballot. If he does, he stays on the ballot. Such challenges don’t affect Nader’s ability to campaign — they work through the election commissions and courts while the campaigning goes on. Only an idiot what compare open and legal ballot challenges to underhanded dirty tricks as described @4.

Once again, puddinghead proves that goobers are fools and numbskulls.

No sweat off your back, eh PStupes? He hails from Gig Harbor. He has to be tainted!

There was a time when I served with pride, knowing that by serving with the finest men and women in the country, we were part of an organization whose core values required us to “do the right thing,” and that we were far different from the Soviet Union and its gulags, the Vietcong with their torture camps and a society of surveillance and informers like Nazi Germany….

Waterboarding was practiced by the Khmer Rouge at the infamous Tuol Sleng prison. Most recently, the U.S. Army court martialed a soldier for the practice in 1968 during the Vietnam conflict.

The whole point here is that the nature of the internet requires us to be vigilant over what gets posted here. Until Puddybud learns that serious accusations of any type require facts, he can’t post here. He either learns to back up his wild accusations or his comments will be deleted.

27. Lee spews:

36. Puddybud spews:

Let’s see my reasoning. I had to perform “research”. I use the simple HorsesASSHolers rule of guilt by association. Unless you declare you left the reservation (Mike Steele, Ken Blackwell, JC Watts) you know they are democrat. He lives in a blue city in an almost blue county, in a blue state. Can you dig it Lee?

First when I read he’s from the 26th Precinct in Harlem, I remembered the brouhaha over Bill Clinton and his offices in Harlem. The complaint was he’s just down the street from the 26th Precinct. Google this map from: 55 W. 125th St. New York New York to: 520 West 126th Street, New York, NY, 10027

Puddy doesn’t forget many things: http://www.readio.com/archives/0108/20/nyclickers2.html

1) In 2004 90% of the black population voted democrat. I have a 9/10ths chance I am right.
2) Black City Cop in the 26th Precinct. 9/10th of blacks like democrats
3) The 26th Precinct is located in upper Manhattan and is bounded by the Hudson River and Henry Hudson Parkway. That’s Harlem HorsesASSHolers. 9/10th of blacks like democrats
4) From a liberal city Middletown, NY – The county barely went for Bush, the city went for Kerry.
5) Trent Young is black, lives in Middletown, New York State
6) The Mayor Marlinda Duncanson, Middletown, 16 James Street Middletown, NY 10940 is a democrat. She was Common Council President.
7) The Middletown Common Council is dominated by democrats
8) Puddy rule of liberal MSM news stories, if he was a Republican, his politics would be front and center. Again look up Michael Vu and tell me how long it takes to determine he’s a democrat.
10) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politics_of_New_York
11) Bill Clinton’s offices 55 W. 125th St. Harlem

So Lee if you hate the politics of guilt by association, then I assume you’ll hold the leftist HorsesASSHolers to the same high standard? Can you dig it Lee?

Puddy:
Question #1 I am. It’s obvious when you meet me. Maybe I’ll unzip too!
Question #2 90% are lock step in agreement with you.
Question #3 Meeting GBS put that question to rest here. Except nothing is every at rest in your mind.

DUH! It has nothing to do with color regarding him being a rapist it’s where he’s from and where he works, NY and NJ two blue states. Otherwise you’d look at me and think I was a rapist with RightEqualsStupid called me four times. Every hue and country has rapists. That’s what I meant. I am not saying every black is a racist. When there have been white guys accused of bad crimes in blue states I call the same thing. Look it up Lee. He was from lower NY State, working in NYC as a cop.

Go for it…I will not waste my time trying to find out if that NYC Cop that lived in Lower NY State was a Democrat. And what if he is – would it matter? Are you suggesting that Democrats rape more. If you one makes the same correlation that you are trying to make with White Collar crime, then I guess it would be OK to say that more Republicans commit WHITE Collar Crime.

69. Puddybud spews:

[Deleted - see comment #71]

70. Tommy Thompson spews:

xamples of white collar crime include: antitrust fraud, bankruptcy fraud, bribery, computer fraud, credit card fraud, counterfeiting, embezzlement, identity fraud, insider trading, insurance fraud, kickbacks, money laundering, obstruction of justice, perjury and price fixing.

White collar crime is steadily on the rise, thanks to our technologically advancing society, which relies on the increased use of cellular phones and computers to access personal and financial information. The National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), a nonprofit agency that supports state and local police in their efforts to prevent, investigate and prosecute economic and high-tech crime, reports that while arrests for violent crimes have decreased in recent years, arrests for white collar crimes – especially fraud and embezzlement – have increased.

The rise in white collar crime incidents has also contributed to a rise in cost to the nation. According to National Fraud Center statistics, the cost of economic crime has risen from $5 billion in 1970 to $100 billion in 1990, and is only expected to increase as occurrences become more frequent. For example, the Federal Bureau of Investigation”s Economic Crime Unit reports that telemarketing fraud, one of the fastest growing types of white collar crime, has become an increasing problem in recent years, victimizing millions of people at a cost of $40 billion annually.

Lee popped a gasket. Yet over the many months when this attack was posted by one of your ilk, he gives it a pass.

OK, genius, let’s deal with reality here. As you probably remember, my old boss was Kenneth Freeman, the one-time cop who was living in Seattle, but fled to China instead of facing trial for allegedly sexually assaulting his own daughter. Now he was a cop, and he lived in a blue city in a blue state, so does that mean he was definitely a Democrat? Of course not. The factor that makes you assume that he’s a Democrat is the fact that he’s black, even though you are black person who hates Democrats. So then, when I asked you why you assumed that a black man like yourself was a Democrat, even though you are an exception in your own generalization, you wrote:

It has nothing to do with color.

Really? It doesn’t? And please don’t even think about saying that I’m taking that out of context. You can see the comment you’re responding to right here. Then, to explain away why you said that a black rapist was “one of us”, and after claiming that race had nothing to do with it, your first excuses are:

1) In 2004 90% of the black population voted democrat. I have a 9/10ths chance I am right.
2) Black City Cop in the 26th Precinct. 9/10th of blacks like democrats
3) The 26th Precinct is located in upper Manhattan and is bounded by the Hudson River and Henry Hudson Parkway. That’s Harlem HorsesASSHolers. 9/10th of blacks like democrats

All of a sudden, it was about race. Surprise!

Puddybud, anybody can come here and be an asshole and I can deal with it. But every asshole should be bringing something to table other than calling people Clueless Gooberfool and trying to convince us that we only have to be 80-90% certain of something before we can start using it as a political cudgel. We don’t enforce the comment policy as much as we could here, and so it definitely looks like it gets used randomly. But just about everyone from Roger Rabbit, to Politically Incorrect to Piper bring stuff to the table, even if I disagree with a whole lotta shit they say. That’s why I don’t delete their comments.

You don’t bring anything. You’re just an annoying fuck who comes here to be obnoxious. I mean, seriously, that was the first comment you left in that other thread? – to post a link to a black NYPD officer who raped someone and then say he’s “one of us”? WTF? We don’t need you here, and seriously, I could give a fuck if we block your IP. Explain yourself or the comments keep getting deleted.

Once again, Puddybud, I’m still awaiting an adequate explanation for why you chose to claim a rapist was “one of us”, then claim that you didn’t say that because he was black, and then did a complete 180 and claim that you tried to associate us with a black rapist because 80-90% of black people vote for Democrats.

This shouldn’t be hard. Either you lied, you have a different rationale then you’ve claimed for divining that he was a Democrat, or that you’re being an asshole on purpose. Everyone here knows that it’s the first and third. Just come clean.

Yes, people have called you names before. And yes, I haven’t done this to them. And I didn’t do it to you until just know even though you’ve certainly been in violation of our comment policy a number of times. Ask yourself this: Do you really think any of the other people who come here are sitting around curious of what pearls of wisdom you’ve brought to this comment thread that they can no longer read? If you really believe that, you arguably need your head examined.

I never do. I’d much rather have a comment thread with 15 intelligent comments than a comment thread with 250 posts of internet diarrhea. Generally, I’ve been patient about how much crap shows up down here (and it’s certainly in our interest to clean it up if we want to be a serious political site), but Puddybud crossed a line. He either needs to explain himself, apologize, or just find something better to do with his time.

Re: 97. No I tried but maybe if you know the author you could ask him to give a coherent review of the book like the left of center New York Times DAVID OSHINSKY did.

I am a fairly low-income retired person hoping to support a few good Democrats for Congress in ’08 via ActBlue. I would really like to support you, and do not consider myself a one-issue voter. But: I have very reluctantly concluded that the Democratic congressional leadership is part of the problem, not part of the solution. Therefore, I will only support candidates who commit publically to support a serious challenger against Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid, and their colleagues in leadership positions such as Steny Hoyer, Rahm Emanuel and Charles Shumer.

Lee: I will look at it but that last time I made a foray to another liberal website I was sadly dissapointed.

Let’s just look at one point of liberal facsism though. You don’t need the book for this.

Interesting, thanks for the comment. Speaking for myself, I’m still generally supporting most Democrats to ensure that there’s a Democratic majority and a Democratic White House. But if they have both of those things and don’t start making some of the tough decisions that need to be made (especially regarding how we’re dealing with the Middle East), I will be expecting quite a bit more from Democratic candidates in 2010.

OK, then which ethnic group is the American left supporting the suspension of habeas corpus for in order to lock people up en masse right now?

I never said that the left has never become authoritarian and anti-liberty. What I’m saying is that claiming that the current American left is somehow comparable to other fascist movements is beyond silly. And you don’t have to read Goldberg’s book to know that.

126. rob spews:

Re: 123, Now that I have called you out on your fascist deleting I will give you an answer to your question.

The left goes out enmasse to force conservative speakers off the stage at planed events. That is fascist; there is no other description of it.

I asked aka: tommy tomphson at 88 to give me an example of republicans doing that and he made a referance that he wanted to have gay sex with me. I told him to go to gay hill for that. He didn’t give me an example of conservatives quelling free speech though and I am not sure if he is just to ignorant to spell “Censor” as opposed to “sensor” or if that “sensor” is some kind of gay sex thing. Typical of a liberal.

127. rob spews:

125: you gave several referances to deleting his comments. Those are all gone now. Good job Gobel.

128. rob spews:

Lee, this is probably not a good night for you to speak in defense of “liberal fascists”

129. Lee spews:

@127
I am deleting his comments. I asked him for an explanation for things he posted earlier and he won’t explain himself. I think he was deliberately being an asshole and as one of the site’s monitors, I don’t think we need that. We run this site and we make the rules. If Goldy or Darryl or anyone else thinks I’ve crossed a line here, I’ll apologize. Otherwise, I’m still waiting for Puddybud to make it clear that he’s not just here to be an asshole.

And by the way, it’s Goebbels.

130. rob spews:

Ha, sorry I misspelled your name but what about all the comments you made while deleting his posts. They seem to have mysteriously disappeared?

131. Lee spews:

@128
Fascists squelch political speech. What I’m doing to Puddybud has nothing to do with any political opinion. It has to do with how he interacts with everyone. If I want to squelch political speech, then how come, in all the arguments I’ve had with Piper, I’ve never once deleted his comments?

132. Lee spews:

Um, no. None of my own comments have been removed. But I edited one to make it longer (hit send too soon)…

Re: 132. Oh really, want me to send you the screen save and then make the same absurd claim?

135. Lee spews:

@133
Again, it has nothing to do fascism unless it’s the suppression of political debate. Puddybud isn’t having a political debate here, he’s having a temper tantrum. Posting a link to a rapist and saying that he’s “one of us” is not political debate. Do you really struggle to understand that?

Wrong. I do it because wingers do it. I mimic wingers so you can see what winger behavior looks like when liberals do it. The idea is to give you a new perspective on what your side is doing. What I do is art. The purpose of art is to get you to look at familiar things in new ways. But I don’t expect a limited intellect like you to comprehend.

141. Roger Rabbit spews:

@52 Your confusion arises from assuming you could play by wingnut rules on a liberal blog.

142. rob spews:

135: I already told you, I didn’t see what he posted and could care less. There are a bunch of things said on this site that there are NO facts to support. Like for example tonight that republicans stifle free speech. The author of that comment disappeared when challenged but his comments didn’t.

By the way I am ok with that. I am also ok with you being the judge and jury over what is said here and what is not.

I have to say, even with censorship, this blog is a good deal more generous to trolls like pudwhacker than any rightwing blog I’ve ever seen is to any liberal who attempts to carry on a civil and factually objective discourse.

I’ll bet every time they arrest one of those right-to-lifer terrorists who shoot doctors and torch abortion clinics, the first words out of his mouth are, “I want a lawyer!” And I’ll bet they want habeas corpus, and a jury trial, too! And they aren’t even waterboarded.

Sorry, but that’s not the bar here. I don’t delete comments just because the poster can’t back up their facts. That has nothing to do with what we’re talking about here. Puddybud said that a rapist is “one of us”. That right there is enough for most people that he’s not here to have any kind of political discussion at all. Then, when I responded to him, he told me that race had nothing to do with it, but then claimed that race had everything to do with it. I’m sorry, but that’s very clearly being obnoxious for the sake of being obnoxious. That’s not fascism, that’s dealing with an asshole. It’s no different than a bouncer kicking someone out of the bar for being a drunken ass. Does that make the bouncer fascist?

I just don’t appreciate hypocrisy.

rob, while you’re at it, you might also mention that Woodrow Wilson (a Democrat) instigated sedition laws and jailed people for criticizing him, and the KKK terrorists of the New South were all Democrats.

Sooooo … if your point is that Democrats aren’t perfect and have done some unholy shit — we admit it.

But we’ve changed. Wilson’s sedition bullshit wouldn’t get the time of day from today’s Democrats — in fact, that’s a GOP platform plank now. And all the KKK thugs are Republicans now, too. And a Republican hater (Malkin) is talking up FDR’s internment camps, and another Republican hater (Coulter) calls for re-establishing concentration camps in America. Funny how all these people are in the GOP. Maybe the reason is because Democrats finally grew up, and Republicans are still shrieking toddlers yearning for the 19th century’s social mores.

165. Roger Rabbit spews:

@121 Actually he wasn’t. American liberalism had many fathers — John Locke, John Stuart Mill, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, and yes, Abe Lincoln … and many others.

“In the months before the 2004 election, dozens of people across the nation were banished from or arrested at Bush political rallies, some for … simply for holding signs or wearing clothing that expressed opposition to the war and administration policies.” — http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2006-07-23-bush-protesters_x.htm

“Similar things have happened at official, taxpayer-funded, presidential visits, before and after the election. Some targeted by security have been escorted from events, while others have been arrested and charged with misdemeanors that were later dropped by local prosecutors.” — Id.

“Jeff Rank and his wife, Nicole, … [were] handcuffed and booted from a July 4, 2004, appearance by the president at the West Virginia Capitol in Charleston. The Ranks … had free tickets to see the president speak, but … were arrested and charged with trespassing for wearing anti-Bush T-shirts. ‘It’s nothing more than an attempt by the president and his staff to suppress free speech,’ said Andrew Schneider, executive director of the ACLU of West Virginia, which is providing legal services for the Ranks.” — Id.

” … [I]n Denver, [Leslie] Weise and two friends were evicted from a Bush town hall meeting on Social Security reform. Weise … [and] friends Alex Young and Karen Bauer … , dressed in professional attire and holding tickets …, arrived at the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. … Weise and Bauer were … detained and told by staff they had been ‘identified’ and would be arrested if they tried ‘any funny stuff,’ according to court records. After finding their seats, they were approached again by staff and removed before Bush began speaking. Days later, Weise learned from Secret Service in Denver that a bumper sticker on her green Saab hatchback — ‘No More Blood for Oil’ — caught the attention of security. ‘I had every reason to attend that event, just as anyone else in the room had that day,’ said Weise. ‘If we raised security to a higher level just because we had an opinion different from the administration, I think that goes far beyond what is appropriate for this country.’” — Id.

“At the Republican National Convention in New York City and at other campaign stops, security segregated protesters in designated ‘free speech zones’ set up at a significant distance from each rally. … Political experts agree Bush … went to greater lengths than … any past campaign to choreograph a seamless, partisan rally free of the embarrassing moments that attract media attention.” — Id.

“The American Civil Liberties Union national office today filed a federal lawsuit against a former high-level White House staffer for enacting a policy that unlawfully excluded individuals perceived to be critical of the administration from public events where President Bush was present. The policy is laid out in an October 2002 ‘Presidential Advance Manual’ obtained by the ACLU. ‘The White House has gone too far in its attempt to make dissent invisible,’ said Chris Hansen, a senior ACLU attorney …. ‘When taxpayers foot the bill for a public event, the president does not have the right to use a partisan litmus test to stack the audience with his political supporters.’

“The ACLU … obtain[ed] a heavily redacted version of the Presidential Advance Manual from the Justice Department. This manual … repeatedly instructs organizers about ‘the best method for preventing demonstrators,’ [and] ‘deterring potential protestors from attending events ….’ The ACLU said it is clear … the aim of the White House policy is to keep people who are critical of the president away from him and from the news media. … ‘When the president attends a public event, the First Amendment does not allow him to speak or listen only to those who agree with him,’ said Arthur Spitzer, Legal Director of the ACLU of the National Capital Area …. ‘Public places cannot be “cleansed” of all dissent just to make the president look popular on television.’” — http://www.aclu-co.org/news/pressrelease/release_denverthree_jenkins_natl_JUN07.htm

“The ACLU is suing Gregory Jenkins, former Director of the White House Office of Presidential Advance and a Deputy Assistant to President Bush, for setting the policy in the manual. Jenkins’ policies have led to the removal and, in some cases, arrest of innocent people from taxpayer-funded events.” — http://washoedems.org/node/470

A famous example is the photo of a VFW veteran with a cardboard “Bullshit Protector” over his ear. http://patriotfiles.org/images/BullShitProtector.jpg

The rightwing blogosphere lifted this photo (without permission) from the Associated Press and changed the original caption (without permission) from

“Bill Moyer, 73, wears a ‘Bullshit Protector’ flap over his ear while President George Bush, on screen at rear, addresses the Veterans of Foreign Wars at their 106th convention Monday, Aug. 22, 2005, in Salt Lake City. Moyer served in Korea and Vietnam, and in the post-WWII occupation of Germany.”

BTW, I did NOT say any Republican congress scum were KKKers, what I did say was all the KKK scum are Republicans now, which is not the same thing.

@175 “I guess we could go down to 3rd and Pine and ask the black folks how much better their lives are with democrats in power.”

Better yet, we could look at polling data showing over 75% of them vote Democratic.

@181 Oh, I’m sorry. I thought you asked me for “facts to support … that republicans stifle free speech.” I don’t recall your saying anything about legal judgments.

Wow! This thread is already up to 200 posts! Taht’s more than the sucky little jihad blog* gets in a year!

* I call it the “jihad blog” because it contains material of this ilk:

“Congratulations Speaker Pelosi, now let the bombs fall where they may. My prediction: terror attack on domestic soil passenger aircraft within the next six months. Casualties in the 2-300 range. And, unfortunately, maybe that’s just what we need. It’s obvious people don’t remember what happened 5 years ago. Posted by FullContactPolitics at November 8, 2006 10:52 AM”

@183 Since I read that comment about 8 or 9 years ago, I doubt it’s still on their web site; but even if it is, I’m not inclined to spend my time searching for it just to kiss your ass. I know what I read, jerk.

I have a better idea. Why don’t you bend down and kiss my cute cottontail! For a good time, call 1-900-LICK-ROG. This is a toll call; all proceeds go directly to the Help Roger Rabbit Live Like A Republican Fund.

Hey rabbit, you democrats following women have seen the lowest approval rating for congress in the history of the United States. Of course that isn’t hard to figure when you have earmark whores lie Patty Murray, and Norm Dicks. Liberals are disgusting.

@198 You asked me why I don’t debate wingnuts. I’ll tell you why. Because participating in a debate requires a capacity for logic that people like you lack. I’m NOT going to take the trouble to spell this out for you. Everyone else gets my point. If you don’t, that’s your personal problem.

Re: 203, as I figured, another liberal lie.

Do you ever get tired of your propoganda?

208. rob spews:

Re: 206. That’s odd that you would say that. Even Lee who is a devout liberal already warned you on this site at 27. I guess you forgot you already got spanked for you fantasies.

Silly rabbit.

209. Roger Rabbit spews:

@205

“Hey rabbit, you democrats following women have seen the lowest approval rating for congress in the history of the United States.”

That’s true. Even Democrats have it in for this Congress. Want to guess why? Because the Democratic majority in Congress, and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, roll over for Bush like lapdogs, that’s why.

“Of course that isn’t hard to figure when you have earmark whores lie Patty Murray, and Norm Dicks. Liberals are disgusting.”

Earmarks weren’t a problem when Republicans did it, but now that Democrats are doing it, they’re a problem. Funny how that works, isn’t it, you fucking hypocrite?

210. Roger Rabbit spews:

@208 Tell you what. Write your complaints about me here [ ] and send them to Lee.

211. rob spews:

I am talking about facts. You made the following slanders against conservatives and you have failed (as liberals do)
to back them up.

You said Ann Coulter wants concentration camps in the US. I have asked your lying ass twice now to show me where that happened and you as a liberal representitive can’t do it

I asked you for proof of someone pulling someone’s hair that that hair puller is a republican. You failed to to that to because you are a liberal facist.

212. rob spews:

Re: 210. What a pussy, I don’t expect fair treatment on a facist website. I will just deal with you here.

213. rob spews:

Re: 209. The reason you have weak leadership is because you elected Patty Murray, Maria Cantwell, Norm Dicks and Harry Reid because they are women, not leaders. A lame duck President and a minority senate and congress spanked them and sent them home.

If you are fine with Murray and Dicks spending millions of your tax dollars to get contributions than live with it. I have to live with is because of all you whimp liberals that have moved to washington

Sorry, rob, I’m done for tonight has I have to prepare for tomorrow’s stock market opening bell. To get the same effect, go slam your head against a wall.

215. rob spews:

Amazing how that works. You slander Repulicans and Ann Coulter and you can’t back it up. You are a pussy Rabbit.

Have a nice nite.

216. rob spews:

Lee, You see how this works don’t you. You have a liberal commentor that makes up things and when he gets called on it he can’t produce. He slanders people and parties just hoping that no one will call him on it. I called him on it several times but he couldn’t come up with any facts. His life revolves around being obnoxious.

I asked him 3 things

1. show me where Ann Coulter wants concentration camps in the US

2. Show me where someone pulling someone’s hair is a republican.

3. Show me where any of the lawsuits filed (that he posted) turned out in a favorable ruling for the ACLU.

Rabbit was unable to do any of the three. He just posted them to be obnoxious.

Maybe if you were fair you would deltete this assholes fantasies. I am not holding my breath.

Lee was more than fair, he didn’t delete any of your obnoxious posts.

Lee, You see how this works don’t you. You have a liberal commentor that makes up things and when he gets called on it he can’t produce.

So what? You equated my demand for an explanation from Puddybud to be fascist when it wasn’t. I didn’t delete your comments.

He slanders people and parties just hoping that no one will call him on it. I called him on it several times but he couldn’t come up with any facts. His life revolves around being obnoxious.

Generally, his behavior on this blog has been a reflection of the Puddybud’s and other trolls who come here to be obnoxious. If it continues beyond that, I’ll be doing something about it.

I asked him 3 things

1. show me where Ann Coulter wants concentration camps in the US

You must not have read any of her books. I have. That woman is clearly past the point of being able to accept the idea of internment. She’s almost at the point of being able to accept genocide as a tool of war.

2. Show me where someone pulling someone’s hair is a republican.

Pulling someone’s hair? C’mon.

#22 Lee says:

Puddybud, I’ll be awaiting your explanation for why a black police officer who raped a 15-year-old can be assumed to be a Democrat. Until then, you can’t participate here. When you successfully explain yourself, I’ll stop deleting your comments.

   
According to the rule of the liberals/democrats/dixiecrats/progressives, the republicans are racist, no black person would be a republican because that would be against their own best interests. Unless you have proof this cop was an “uncle tom,” “oreo” or any of the other names democrats call blacks that cross the isle, Puddy must be right.

You’re missing one of the major parts of this. Puddybud is black. As a result, he’s an example of the exception that he’s pretending doesn’t exist in order to make his point. When I forced him to acknowledge this, he then lied to me. Shortly after that, he refuted his own lie. All I’m asking for is an explanation. If you want to participate here, you can’t be an asshole just for the sake of being an asshole. You also have to be providing some benefit (either or humor or insight). Puddybud is not here to engage anybody in political debate. He’s here to be as obnoxious as possible, and we have every right to exclude him if he can’t explain the rationale for his behavior.
