To think a rat would have anything to do with FR. There are even things a rat won't do.

6. It was the best thing about DU

Now that I think about it, this is how drug dealers work. First they come around and say, "Hey, man, wanna try the Top Ten Conservative Idiots? Maybe a little Bob Boudelag, while you're at it..."

And then WHAM! It's almost twelve years later. You're paying some guy who dresses their avatar up like a Simpsons character -- on a monthly basis -- to tell you that your posts are "against the rules" or "tasteless and crass" or "borderline illegal." You're spending six hours writing and re-writing the perfect gotcha post which will enable you to finally win a six week flame war ("I'll show them why poodles are better than chihuahuas!"). You've stopped going to Olive Garden entirely: not because you dislike the Olive Garden, but you've read so many Olive Garden posts that merely driving past gives you a vague feeling of unease.

And I'm not going to rehab! I don't care what my wife and children say! I am going to my night job, though (but I'll be reading DU on my phone while I'm there).

To cover the costs of hiring someone to do it full time.

If 2,000 other DU'ers kick in $20 each....

20. It's not a job that can be hired out.

It would have to be EarlG, or it wouldn't be the same. Some things should not -- and in this case, cannot -- be outsourced.

EarlG or bust, IMO.

The same idiots tended to behave like idiots week after week.

17. You'll have to add some new key symbols, though.

Something for when a Republican lawmaker says something blindingly stupid about rape, and for when a candidate says something contemptuous of voters, and for when a 1%er says something that shows complete lack of understanding of the lives of the 99%.

Maybe we could get a volunteer to start a thread once a week and let everyone contribute their candidate and reasons.

It helped me get through some really depressing political years.

Hi,
I too always looked forward to that, always funny as heck. Of course like an earlier poster said, it may have to be expanded because there are just so many batshit crazy idiots so loud and so proud.

Peace

29. I think we best just let it go folks and not bring it back.

After all there is a heck of alot of competition each week with people eager to make the top 10 list that the person who was tracking it wouldnt be able to get any sleep.

Then everyone can contribute and say which conservative was the biggest idiot that past week. It could be Sunday night entertainment.

38. If a weekly Top Ten is too much work, go for monthly.

Of course I'm not volunteering to do any of the work, but it's free advice ... so ...

"Providing political satire and commentary for Democrats, a weekly Top Ten Conservative Idiots list and a wide range of discussion groups."

Soooooo - where is the Top Ten Conservative Idiots list we were promised?????????
