Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue Nov 13, 2012, 06:54 PM

I wish the pundits would stop talking about the secession petitions.

All it does is lend an extremely fake veneer of legitimacy to the nonsense, as well as giving the idiots who sign them the publicity they crave. It's never going to happen and there will be no response from the White House, so I wish the pundits would treat the idea with the silent contempt which is the only appropriate reaction.

2. Because that is exactly who the pundits are, fake illegitimate crack pots, and have been so for some

Time. In fact that is how I classify the MSM today

They are a disgrace to what used to be news organizations

3. Why not?...

The American people need to know the lengths Romney supporters are willing to go; to see the hatred in more than total number of votes

4. I agree. Might as well do front page stories about people's angry Facebook posts on the election.

This is no more newsworthy except that people who have actually put their names to this stuff have made a bigger ass of themselves than the Facebook people.

6. Never is indeed a long time

I will give this the odds of flying pigs, Texas a tad less than flying pigs, but never is not in any historic timeline.

8. But they need to fill those air times, when it's too inconvenient to report what's

really going on, all the Machiavellian intrigues happening in Washington right now and I'm not talking about the Petraeus scandal.

9. I'm pretty sure

most of the signers hadn't thought it through and really wouldn't like it, if the rest said yeah, go for it. It's just a joke to them, just as the teaparty was. It's just the latest "cool" thing for angry repubs to do.

10. DU, too.

Except to heap additional ridicule on them, of course. Always more room for that!

12. It's a publicity stunt and they don't deserve the publicity

They also don't deserve so much attention here. There will be no secession. It's the stupidest publicity stunt and if someone said something about wanting to secede to me I'd just laugh at them.
