1. Stuff and Nonsense
Distraction from what we should be discussing, you know that annoying Iraq war and Social Security. But if you want to find out about the Valerie vetwife affair seek out the posts on this board, especially the one with over 200 posts.

6. Yeah, a total distraction
It appears vetwife and Gannon are in a hot affair.

They both have considerable stocks in Iraqi contracts and they're erotically jubilant. An orgasm a minute.

They don't want to look at www.icasualties.com

10. You mean icasualties.ORG, right?
www.icasualties.org

icasualties.com is not a site.

2. Well....
It started with this thread:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

And then others following either in support of her or not.

9. Thanks. Missed all the excitement and... never heard of her
seems like a person in need of a lot of attention and assurance.

I do hope that DU is not a substitute for a psychiatric couch.

25. It definitely wasn't what one would call excitement!
We all have our specific point in time, especially the present time -

12. I like the way she spelled polarization
Kerry wasn't my first choice by any means, but he wouldn't make me turn to GWB on his worst day. Clearly, Vetwife is not DU material.

I have disagreed with quite a few people on this site and I have even gotten snooty...but then again, I'm thin, neat, attractive...and LIBERAL. Vethouse...I mean Vetwife is none of the above.

The website was a dead giveaway. Also, I grew up in Pat Robertson's backyard and Limbaugh/Freeptoid-types can seem okay on the outside, but give me a fucking break; if you're a Bush supporter, you're either a dipshit or an asshole. Those are the two possbilities.

You voted for Bush? You are either A. a dipshit or B. an asshole. The only grey area here is dipholeshitass.

Okay; with that, I am concluding that it is time for bed, and at the very least it's time to stop posting because this is really embarrassing.

Sorry, my sweetheart is out of town this weekend and I am sitting in front of the computer getting tanked....and rather enjoying myself, dammitall!!!!

Wish I could have gotten into it with Vetblimp, uh...I mean Tammy Faye Vethog...it's the alcohol talking, really; it isn't me...there's some macro in my computer that just started typing this stuff...damn that Bill Gates...that's what America is all about, right? Blame someone else? I didn't call that Vetskank a blimp, Bill Gates did, that capitalist nihilist sonofabitch...I know he's in cahoots with the Vetswine...I mean Vetsow...NO...Freepbait....whatever. Bon *belch* *hiccup* soir!

13. Hilarious post!
Very mean and nasty, but I couldn't help but giggle. And she wasn't nice to us either.I know two wrongs don't make a right but honestly, your post is funny! I can't stop giggling. Everyone else has been soooo serious about this! :evilgrin:

16. I'm usually pretty composed...

Glad to have been able to share a feeling with a fellow DUer.

Peace.

26. LOL!
Whatever were you drinking? Excellent post. Except there are many of us Democrats who are not " thin, neat, attractive". I am a voluptuous and attractive Liberal! :)

29. Welcome to DU and as I see it,
maybe you've been a lurker for a long time or know nothing and are incredibly rude. Please forgive me for calling you rude.

5. Better make coffee...
Here is the original "swan song" post and replies...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Some more...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Here are pages from an MSN forum of hers, including where she announces she is changing party affiliation in the second link...

http://groups.msn.com/FocusGroupNow/amandakato.msnw

http://groups.msn.com/FocusGroupNow/_whatsnew.msnw

Basically, Vetwife is revealed to be moderating at CU (the DU bashing site) and at American Conservative Forums' Veterans forum.

The only conclusions I can come to is that she is either a sincere, but emotionally unstable zealot capable of changing over to the shrub voting side under duress, or she was a sleeper mole here the whole time. Nothing else really makes any kind of sense.

11. I'm leaning towards unstable, but sincere. She f'd up. I'f I'm wrong
I'll probably never get over it.

Please see my other posts. I have talked with her today and chastised (sp?) her harshly. As I have done all along during the time I knew she was posting to other sights. To me, she said she was sorry, just for whatever it is worth.

19. she is an obvious troll
her high post count will, no doubt, make her a hero "over there".

Another attempt of the RW shills to portray DU as the Unamerican Lunitic fringe.

Up yours VETWIFE and good riddence.

24. Totally agree...
IMO, since Gannon's cover was blown they are crawling out of the woodwork. My husband was a Vietnam Vet - I've never had anything except respect for soldiers. It's Rummy and the Big Brass who need to see some Brig time.

Your point is well taken, she worked a long time in here to gain respect without blowing her cover. I've been a member for awhile, but not a constant poster, so I don't remember her that well. However, being a Mod on a political forum - there seems to be a problem with trolls the past few weeks. An embedded troll, she must be on the payroll.

When I heard FOX mention the DU one night, I knew we must be a pain in their collective butt.

If said person really loved this country, Bushco is the last place she would run to.

Really, forget her she's not worth it.

Just my 02.

because we here at DU were not sufficiently impressed with her and didn't put her up on a pedestal!

21. Anyone else notice "vetwife" did this while Rush is off...
... on his tax-dollar supported Grand Tour of Afghanistan
basically selling the same Kool-ade?

Hmm...

I also noticed "vetwife" didn't post here much after, say,
the Sep-Oct 2004 time frame.

It's a set up... Forget it and forget "her".

27. I've been away for a week
I returned when her original "I'm leaving post" was in full flame. I didn't think much of it then, and I don't think much of it now. From what I saw, there wasn't much "there" there to begin with. There are far more important things to concern your life with than this.

I don't share it, but that's not her problem OR mine.
