So if, at Kirby Puckett's memorial service Sunday at the Dome,
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 09:21 PM by dflprincess
anyone mentions baseball or one of the speakers becomes emotional and perhaps suggests the Twins should try and have a winning season this year for Kirby, will the right wing (or maybe fans of other teams) go nuts about the memorial being turned into a Pep Rally?

Just wondering.

1. LOL
Probably!

I am sure the White Sox will scream for equal press time!

3. Stadium backers may use this event to try to push their agenda,
whether they're right wingnuts or not.

4. Proably after the cermony, not during it
I can see it worked into the KFAN-like sports talk shows during the next few weeks.

5. I don't know, but wouldn't it be fun to feign indignation?

6. I smell a great LTTE here!
Conservatives should be outraged!


"There are forces within the Democratic Party who want us to sound like kinder, gentler Republicans.
I want us to compete for that great mass of voters that want a party that will stand up for working Americans,
family farmers, and people who haven't felt the benefits of the economic upturn."--- Senator Paul Wellstone

7. well, they PLANNED in ADVANCE to defile the Wellstone memorial, so..
...you can figure the script for Kirby is already written.
...There'll be some old geezer who'll say 'I'm still a White Sox fan' or something like that. and you'll hear the howling within about two minutes...

SERIOUSLY: I was in my car -- used my secret parking spot -- fifteen minutes after the memorial ended and ALREADY they were spouting the GOP talking points....

they had it written in advance...


hey, deef!

8. Maybe we should all call Sarah Janecek's show tomorrow afternoon
to express outrage.

9. All it took was a DU post for Rethuglicans to cry foul
The half-wit GOP hack who runs Minnesota Democrats Exposed used this DU post to accuse the Democrats of turning the Puckett memorial into an "attack on Republicans." I guess it doesn't take much imagination to fill a blog like MDE--just the mere suggestion that Rethuglicans might claim Democrats turned the memorial into a pep rally is enough for this loser to go ballistic. How sad.

11. Proving once again that Republicans can dish it out
but they can't take it.

12. Half-wit? That's giving him more credit than he deserves.
There's nothing being exposed here except the Republican's hypocrisy.

13. I finally went over and looked at MDE
(I feel so dirty - but I'm working from home today so I can take another shower). It's amusing that his headline refers to "Democrats". Let's be honest one Democrat (me) made one of the sarcastic observations that are my speciality. A few more Democrats, taking the post in the spirit it was written, expressed some mild amusement at the original post and made some tongue in cheek comments of their own. Suddenly, this small band of merry pranksters morphs into "Democrats turning Puckett memorial into an attack on Republicans". True, more than one Democrat has commented, making it technically correct to use the plural but the headline would lead one to believe that hordes of Democrats are doing this and meaning it seriously.

Knowing that MDE is monitoring us and knowing that Republicans have neither a sense of irony or a sense of humor I should probably be more careful with my comments - or maybe I'll just think of ways to torment them with more snide remarks. (New headline at MDE - Democrat(s) vows to torture Republicans".) Whoops - there I go again.
