Welcome to this very special edition of the Hate Mailbag. Special because for some reason we struck a rich vein of conservatives on June 5, and ALL of the following mail came in on that day. We must be doing something right. By the way, if your mail didn't make it onto this page, we're sorry. As you know, we're sheep who are terrified of opposing viewpoints and can't handle the truth, and the argument you put forth was too witty and intellectual for us. And now...
These are all completely real. E-mail addresses and last names have been removed (well, the ones that aren't fake), but we have NOT edited them for content, grammar, or spelling.

Subject: Interesting site
I don't know if this qualifies for your Hate Mailbag (since I consider myself more of a moderate libertarian than a republican conservative), but it seems to me that too much of your time and energy is spent smeering dissenters than actually refuting their claims.
It is obvious that there are many great minds at work here, but if you don't tone it down, your message starts sounding like the ramblings of post pubescent college undergrads who just found their first Royal typewriter.
Facts Are Wrong! My Facts Are Right!

Subject: Get the facts
I was reading a number of articles and the t-shirt ad. I hate to inform you, but as usual with Democrats, the facts don't matter. The only Junior that ran in the last Presidential election was Al Gore. If you check the final totals that were certified by all the states and not the ones reported on election night, George W. won by almost 1 million votes nationwide. It is misstatements like this that drove me from the Democratic party and to the Libertarian party. Get the facts at Cato.org or self-gov.org. I feel sorry for idiots that regurgitate lies and act like mind-knumbed robots instead of thinking for themselves. I thought Republicans were sore losers.
Hate Is Too Much Effort For This Lazy Fella. Perhaps We Need A "Contempt Mailbag"

Subject: Hate Mail
It's not hate, it's contempt. Hate takes too much work and it really isn't good to hate anybody. I'd like to know what happened to bipartisanship, getting along, good vibes and all of that from a Democrat point of view. It seems bipartisanship only works when it's a Republican who "sees the light" or "grows" and agrees with the Democrats. In the unlikely event a Democrat veers off the reservation, not very kind things are said about him. Example: when Miller of Georgia (a very long-time Democrat and former governor) supported this miniscule farce of a tax cut (which by the way all of it eventually expires, putting everything back as it was, thank you for nothing) he was lumped in right along with those mean Republicans as a destroyer of medicare, raider of social security, education terminator, poisoner of the environment, etc. One can just feel the love emanating from the Democratic leadership. Hypocrites all.
Republicans deserve contempt as well, but hey, this is the Democratic Underground hate mail. If the Republicans have a similar drivel-filled site, please advise so I can be balanced and bipartisan and send them a message too. For now, nothing but contempt for Democratic party and DU. Cheers.
Is Some QUALITY Hate Mail!

I just wanted to let you know how disappointed I am with your website. Instead of offering real solutions to this country's problems, you resort to name-calling and cheap, one-liners about the people who run this country. Not that I would expect anything else from those on the political left. It's not that I'm surprised. You remain loyal to a political ideology that has been discredited by history, it was the same ideology that murdered millions in Cambodia, Russia, China, Germany and Chile that leads this country down a sad path to socialism and despotism (oh wait, was that too many big words in a row?? You now commit your blind allegiance to your name-calling brethren in the US government. I'll check back at the site in a month or so to see if you can come up with any intelligent criticisms about conservatives, but I won't hold my breath.

You people have really gone off the deep end. You need help! ABC is on your list of bad conservatives? You people are so out of touch with reality it's scary. Why don't you people quit trying to enact revenge because your boy Gore lost. You have no interest in improving this country. You only want to win. What you don't know is you're destroying this country. People who are independent like me are getting tired of this class warfare crap by you democrats. Do you have anything positive to offer. I don't agree with everything that the Republicans do, but they are not bitter like the left. You t-shirt ad says it all. Who cares! Just because states like California and NY are loaded with left wing dumbasses does not mean that your adgenda is king and your ideas more important.

Okay, so mayhaps I was right... I post a message and then get the "ban" message? Go ahead, you Democrat Socialist Pigs.. keep me quiet on your stupid boards... diversity of thought is something that you must not be into... oh wait, I suppose we should have the government protect ourselves a litle more by taking away the freedom of speech, y'know... it might offend someone. You disgust me.

Oh! so going after peoples' children is the latest Demoscum tactic? You all have just put your own "Can't-read-in-the-4th-grade kids" up as fodder. Great!! We can do the same!! And just wait until those Chinese missiles come. I suspect those blue areas on the map will get whacked hardest when Wong Way's twin brother spills a Coke on that launch control console. And no missile defence to stop it!!! I hope I haven't used too many difficult words for you I.Q. of -5 demoscums. Fuck You, LOSERS.
Hey Everyone, Republicans Don't Dig Dirt - OR Lie!

Subject: Just saw your sight
Hey you freak! Lay off the crap. all right? If Bush is sooooo stupid, explain to me how he got an MBA from Harvard and , on top of that, was the most successful manager of the Texas Rangers yet? Can't do it, can you? And at least we Republicans have some decency. That means we don't go around nailing interns left and right, digging up and then flinging whatever dirt, or worse, we can find about the other guy, and lying like there was no tomorrow. The Democrats are the champions in all those fields. I'm just glad that Democrats (who are really Democrats in name only) like Zell Miller and John Breaux have seen the light and vote conservative. At least there is hope for some of you. I know see why one of my friends refuses to refer to you as anything other than Dumb-ocrats. I'm off to listen to Rush Limbaugh now. He's a hell of a lot smarter than any of you can hope to ever be. With as much false respect as a person could possibly muster on an empty stomach,

As a hardcore Republican, I find your website to be hilarious. Great reading. Fascinating how a group of people can be so misguided. One correction: How can you nitwits list Chris Matthews as a Top 10 Conservative Idiot of the Week, when he's a Democrat who worked for the legendary former Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill?
Love and kisses,
