The results will surprise you

Time for Hillary to Run…..

I also loved this from the comments



It’s DU-Dies time!

In the Lower Expectations category, after finding out any GOP candidate beats Obama, this headline

Dole leads Clinton in March 1995 TIME poll…

Must have been because of all that raycism that Clinton beat Dole like a drum

In the DUH cathegory is this awakening

Has this place become an Echo Chamber now, where have all

the flowers gone?

Mods, please do not lock this as I do not think it is against the discipline here. I am truly concerned when I see only one DUer with over ten OPs on here.

This place used to be so vibrant with so many different points of view, alas, something makes me wonder!

Where have all the flowers gone?


You are 2 years late when it became a one candidate primary site, but thanks for noticing. Comments are cute too

catch 22

if anyone answers honestly, your thread will be locked or disappeared.

FYI, thread is locked.

Re: Primarying Obama In 2012 (I’m Not There Yet) BUT…

Funny as his thugs canceled the 2008 primary too

Thoughtful poster there captures the guiding principle of the Omaministration

We Have Nothing to Fear, But Fear of a One Term Presidency

Here’s a question that comes 2 years too late

Is Barack Obama a “progressive”?

Too bad they didn’t wonder about it on the campaign trail during the love of Reagan, praise of Blackwater

Last resort department: People who hate together…

I am posting this to help re-unify DU

What follows is nothing but a photo of Palin winking. Gleeful attacks and further unflattering photos follow.

Oh please

you know you want this.

Good answer to a ridiculous order barked from Daily News

Dems, get behind your President

First and only needed answer

Reply #1: Mr President, get behind your Dems

And the DU-die for this week goes to the entire dissection of the Sherrod blunder

In the category “meanies made him do it” in the Shirley Sherrod story comes the headline

Breitbart is getting his wish! The President and his admin blamed for something negative….

proper snark eventually follows, is missed

4. Exactly. People talking about this….

are giving aid and comfort to the enemy.People need to watch what they say. We need to immediately forget about and stop talking about Sherrod. It sucks that she lost her job, but we can’t let that get in the way of the bigger picture.

On the same theme, a ray of common sense

FOX News and the MSM did not fire Sherrod…..the Administration did!!!

which is immediately “parodied” by an operative

Fire YOU Fire Me FIRE EVERYBODY Dammit! You Weak Piece Of Shit!!

Fellow operatives LOL all the way down, with one ‘splaining to us

3. It does get a little bit ridiculous, doesn’t it?

Look people, this is not a NATIONAL event, it’s a mistake, period. AND, IT WILL BE CORRECTED. Everyone needs to take a fucking chill pill.

and to all Obama apologists a good retort on the “mistake” defense

9. Not like the White House or the NAACP had any reason to be skeptical about Breitbart…
I still find it hard to comprehend that this was a tape of an NAACP event..and they were still “snookered”?

Update: due to popular demand, adding this attempt to rewrite history in this most pushiest of polls

Do “Obama killed the public option” threads belong in the 911 forum

At what point do we accept that people were duped by an irrational conspiracy theory because it reaffirms what they would like to be true? Does it deserve to be taken seriously anymore.

Poll result (68 votes)
Yes, it’s a kooky conspiracy that doesn’t belong in serious debate. (62 votes, 91%) Vote
People are misguided but free speech allows stupidity. (1 votes, 1%) Vote
I believe the accusations no matter how little evidence there is! (0 votes, 0%) Vote
Something obnoxious about a furry rodent. (5 votes, 7%)


Today, Newseum, the site where I get my tabloids had a whimsical goof: it showed the Boston Globe cover from last year

Which prompts the question: where are they now? Or rather, where are we now?

We knew how his campaign went.

Boasting he was  going to put an end to all that and unofficially – with or without the help of the Jurnolist – accuse all opposition of racism.

When Rev Wright made himself the story, Obama historically declared he cannot distance himself from Wright. Then promptly did, days later for being called…a politician.

And what did Obama do with the latest racist story? He hid.

headlines from yesterday

White House keeps President Obama above racial fray

Jurnolister Ben Smith reassured us that
“The White House struggled mightily Wednesday to make things right with an aggrieved Shirley Sherrod — but it is working nearly as hard to distance President Barack Obama and his top aides from the racially tinged firing fiasco. “
From CNN we have this

Aides: White House trying to distance Obama from Sherrod controversy

White House aides said Wednesday they do not expect President Barack Obama to call Shirley Sherrod, the black former USDA employee who resigned after a video clip of her discussing a white farmer surfaced earlier this week.Obama did not appear at the White House briefing Wednesday to discuss the issue. At the briefing, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs apologized to Sherrod on behalf of the administration.

But like Wright, the Cambridge incdent, the stiry became

Shirley Sherrod Becomes Obama Political Problem

NPR quotes from Field Negro blog,

Ms. Sherrod, I go to an excellent cleaner here in Philly. They will do a great job of getting those tire marks off the back of your beautiful dress. Still, I bet that bus must have been pretty heavy.

Don’t worry, your back will recover. Just ask some of the other Negroes who found themselves under the O bus what they used to make themselves feel better.

So, finally, Obama had to pop in, this time throwing Vilsak (previously supported) under the bus.

Since, Obama personally called Sherrod to apologize – her answer about returning is still pending. So what to make of this aide comment to CNN

“No more beer summits here,” one aide said. After Gates’ arrest, Obama, Gates and police Sgt. James Crowley met at the White House for beers.

This may still be reserved for penis-Americans only.


A new headline

US officials stumble on the firing of Shirley Sherrod

with new information

he clip, dug up by a conservative activist and replayed by Fox News, sent alarm bells ringing not just at the USDA but at the White House.Mrs Sherrod was phoned not once but three times as she drove home – and she says the official who phoned her at the prompting of the White House was so desperate to get her to quit that she ended up pulling over to the side of the road and resigning by e-mail.

The corruption story that amused me most is from the not crying in his tea cup John Kerry – who also doesn’t pay taxes

A little less happy with the Rangel story but here it is

Someone at Newseum has a wicked sense of humor – in the midst of the Sherrod story they display last year’s cover  OBAMA SCOLDS CAMBRIDGE POLICE

Oops! It makes sense now that he gets to scold himself his own people …

and in the oil-kill news blockade states they are preparing for tropical storm Bonnie
