Pissed-Off Primary Postmortem

Went a little nutzoid the other day after seeing one too many right wing explanations as to why the end of the Democratic Party is near now that Ned Lamont handed Joe Lieberman his ass. This despite Lieberman's pathetic call for an uprising, his word, on primary day, lest the antisecurity wing (his words) of the party prevail. You see, he even thinks like Karl Rove and uses the same verbiage as Dick Cheney. A girl I used to work with at the Transcript, Emma, has a blog that is occasionally funny,, but methinks she leans too far to the right. She has links to Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin and other human feces on her site, so I had to straighten her out the other day, letting loose with one of my trademark verbal barrages in her general direction after she took a shot at my boy Ned, praised Liebeman, called his wife Hadassah a badass, and said she would move to Connecticut to vote for Lieberman as an independent. That really set me off. Here's some of my response reproduced for your benefit:

"Good riddance to Joe Lieberman and his massive puppethead, fuck his wife too. I burn with hatred for the Cult of Bush and their devotees. All Lieberman cares about is the fate of Israel. He hid behind Bush's skirt when Bush was riding high and Democrats didn't forget that. The vast majority of Dems supported ousting the Taliban in Afghanistan, but refused to conflate the war on terror with the invasion of Iraq because they have minds of their own, unlike Republicans who will support Reichsfuhrer Bush right up until it's time to drink the cyanide Kool-aid. The right wing is out of ideas, save for the time-tested dementia of red baiting and painting their opponents as Al-Qaeda appeasers. The fact that you have links to hateful bitches like Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin says it all. Stick to your semi-humorous pop culture ruminations. You see nothing wrong apparently with the culture of lobbyist corruption, Tom DeLay, Jack Abramoff, shock and awe, tens of thousands of dead Iraqis, stolen elections, one-party rule, journalists paid by government contract to write pro-Bush articles here and abroad, anti-intellectualism, anti-science, torture and rendition, or supporting the consensus worst president ever. I guess everyone who disagrees with you just hates freedom, right? But Ned Lamont you get worked up about. Get used to it, sweetheart, because you're gonna have to move to a lot of different states come November if you hope to offset a Democratic onslaught. Physician, heal thyself."

Over the weekend I felt bad about using the word fuck, but it's a perfectly legitimate construct here in the blogosphere. Hey, I meant what I said. The gloves are off now. I really have no desire to debate or try to convert Republicans or Conservatives at this late stage if they still don't get the mess they've made. They exhibit all the behaviors that people in cults do -- the glassy-eyed denials, withdrawal from reality, avoidance of fact-based reality. And like a cult they must be deprogrammed. I envision a series of Khmer Rouge-like reeducation camps across the country, forced labor and total public renunciation of past bourgeois lifestyles. But that's just me.
