Bush-Be-Gone Index bounces to record high
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 01:24 PM by stevietheman
Bush-Be-Gone Index

Friday's score: 2182 -- up 61.3% from yesterday. (RECORD HIGH)

Apparently, a lot of new chatter related to impeaching bush is being generated by all the recent scandal revelations.

edit: corrected the score

1. Your figure is wrong. 2182, not 1282.

2. The list needs catchy phrases like...
www.raptureindex.com

Their top score is "Fasten Your Seatbelts."

Aside from that, your methodology is completely wrong - since you rely on the "librul" media and the "trash" they spew on a daily basis.

4. Not sure what you mean (perhaps it's a joke), but the BBG Index...
survey pulls results from a wide spectrum of blogs and forums... which isn't limited to liberal-oriented ones. I'm trying to capture a "buzz" value--that is, how much people are talking about the subject of getting rid of Bush.

5. I know, I read the methodology.
I meant it solely as sarcasm - I imagine my post resembles some of the hate mail you must get.

7. I doubt any one here would have a problem with the site.
One or two lurkers maybe, but no one here has ever said bush was good for this country.

8. I've gotten freeper "hate comments" in my blog as a result of...
posting blog links in here, but I don't remember receiving any directly related to the index itself. I guess it's just a matter of time, however.

10. I've done a search on my screen name and found the freepers
have posted my comments on their thread (term used loosely here). I feel like I've come of age.

They are pretty good at trolling around here - which surprises me.

11. I just Googled and the freepers referred to me once, making fun...
of a comment that I still today stand behind: "Well, I plan to openly oppose the Pres and call for his...resignation if another 9/11 occurs. I won't care about my own life at that point. The nation will matter far more."

The Freeper response was "DUmmie stevietheman acting like Mr. Bravery despite the fact that there is absolutely NO risk involved."

No risk? What drugs must this guy be on? Does he not know the "patriotic" shits on his side that would be more than happy to start violent acts against people who would "dare" oppose the president under these circumstances? Geez.

Of course, the funny thing is... I'm openly calling for his resignation now, but due to other reasons. But I think there has been no threats because I think most people cannot stomach rallying around a president with such demonstrated incompetence, callousness and criminality, esp. after Katrina. On the other hand, another 9/11 would create a lot of irrational zombies very willing to take down people like me.
