Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Apr 12, 2013, 12:08 AM

Sorry, this is too #%^*ing weird

For four years, virtually every DU post of mine has turned into a re-creation of the final scene in Blazing Saddles, with almost all pies going into *my* face.

Suddenly, over the past few days, I've become mainstream. Or the mainstream has become me.

Boring!

It's true. There was a 15 year study to prove it.

7. Some people will use any excuse to talk about private parts and sex.

Just do it in the context of some 'serious' issue and you can use all the vulgar, sex words you want. I laugh at how obvious it is the thrill some of them get out of pretending to be outraged over some sexual thing or another and in the process, very seriously of course, pragmatically even, they roll out every sex word they ever heard in their lives.

Just make sure you provide 'context' and you won't get in trouble at all. Everyone will be serious with you.

5. They just don't want us to know that the majority

of Americans prefer the policies of the Professional Left to the policies of the Third Way. We are a left leaning country. Isn't that awesome? We are in the majority, we were right, we are always right and we are mainstream.

Sea change of some sort. Like suddenly everyone realized that the Emperor is buck nekkid.

I guess now that so many are on the same page, the next step is to band together and fight?

9. I'm ready and from what I'm hearing so are a whole lot of other people.

Starting with 'I will never support in any way anyone who voted to cut SS. I support Democrats. Such a person is not a Democrat.

Nor are they mainstream!

15. With me I just reached my limit.

I consider that a betrayal of trust....he assured us he would not do it and as soon as he no longer needed us to vote for him he betrayed that promise...
I just realized I was enabling it.

But I do feel sorry for those that must now face the fact that the trust was betrayed...it is hard when you invest so much emotions on someone and they do that too you....and some never will admit it because it is just too painful...but that is not me.

17. your supporters have always outnumbered your detractors IMO

But the minority has so relentlessly flooded us with denunciations of all things progressive that the atmosphere became intimidating. The general tone of discussion has been dominated by authoritarian masochists who worship power, in lockstep with authoritarian sadists out to punish and humiliate the powerless.

Events of the last three days have pulled the rug out from under all authoritarian so-called Democrats, and those long intimidated into silence by them are speaking up in support of their targets. If not speaking up, giving lots of recs. For three days now the top ten or so rec'd threads were emphatically anti-CPI.

26. Ever hear the song "Harper Valley PTA"?

 


BTW, you do realize that a vast majority of the people who are your today's friends,
would never vote for your candidate(assuming it is your candidate), don't you?

Heed the words of Liberal Tom T. Hall and better keep a supply of old dogs, children and watermelon whine around because well, he told what happens to "friends"

or as the Shirelles sang "Will you still love me Tomorrow".

or as the old Get Smart episode showed
"Off with their heads"
oops
"On with their heads...on with their heads"

for those that remember Maxwell Smart long before Steve Carell invented him.

and also heed the words of Tom T. Hall who as his biggest song said "I LOVE"

note, Tom T. Hall, a true liberal, did not spend 24/7/365 being negative.

Negativity kills.
Love lives.

Check your ego at the door. Oops too late.

And no, the same 10 doesn't mean mainstream. It just means 10.

and the first thing I saw when I went to Kos is that it was a pro-Kos/McAuliffe popup
So, you like Terry McAuliffe now?

That surprises me that you are mainstream liking Terry McAuliffe. Good first step.
He has my support too.

29. McAuliffe should take over the DNC again

I never understood why "massively losing elections because voters hate Third-Way Policies and your tactics suck" was considered a negative.

Must be Nader's fault.

30. McAuliffe is going to bring Virginia in for Hillary in 2016

 

and I am sure if your candidate were running, she would happily accept the endorsement and money from the Democratic committee Charles Schumer so she could win if she was running to win and not play games.

I would assume you would want Virginia to have a democratic governor and senate over a republican one

wait a minute, I remember what Benny Hill said about assuming.
Better not assume anything.


btw, that was not the point I was making with the McAuliffe line.
I was marveling that I found NO anti-Obama stuff there, after the last couple of days of Koz links seemed to indicate otherwise.
Must have been some Ron Paul fans in the comments section, but not the writing staff of Koz itself.

She's inevitable - again! McAuliffe will deliver - again!

Resistance is again futile! All our base still are belong to her!

btw, is Nina Totenberg a name that is good or bad?
Is a place she would or did write at, a good or bad place?

Trying to figure something out.
