I don’t know what’s a worse idea…

...comparing PUMAs to persecuted Jews or getting Debbie Schlussel to write for Big Hollywood.

Halp?

Well, she does have the “big” part down.

Man, I just looked at roster at Big Hollywood. It’s an unholy collision of wingnut.com scum.  KLo, the insufferable Bill Whittle, Roger L. Magoo, Doughy Pantload, Face Of Spuds, etc. WTF?  I guess Pam Atlas can’t be too far behind. I hope they’ve got Misha lined up to look for overt attempts at liberal indoctrination in Muppet movies.

Shorter…

American Girl in Italy:  PUMAs are like Jews.  Now I’m not saying PUMAs are like Jews, but PUMAs are like Jews.

Rest of blogosphere:  *criticism*

American Girl in Italy:  You all have poor reading comprehension!

I would love to see a PUMA write for Big Hollywood. Self-empowering romance films would immediately dominate and all hope would be lost, ironically.

I just got around to dakinikat’s screed over at RiverChucky’s house o’ crazy, and this part (among others) popped out at me.

The man has never been in an election where extremely weird things haven’t happened–like getting all your opponents thrown out on technicalities

I see this thrown around a lot by PUMAs, and it’s rarely addressed because it’s usually buffetted by even more crazy, but allow me the indulgence of explaining to those terminably naive PUMAs what this means.

As a veteran of city politics, it’s entirely true that city machines can get friendly judges to make questionable rulings if a challanger fails to cross every t and dot every i on their paperwork.  However, what happened when Obama got Alice Palmer thrown off the ballot was actually nearly the reverse.

Palmer was the “old hand,” and Obama successfully challenged her petition signatures.  Every city politico needs knows you need at least 2 to 3 times the minimum number of required signatures just to keep your opponents from challangeing you. 

Additionally, a none too infrequent occurance is that incumbents get lazy, and instead of actually getting a couple hundred signatures from district voters, they just forge signatures or collect them without regard to residency.  This is actually one of the best ways a challanger can get a leg up on an incumbent.

Not only is this not uncommon, it’s not even unethical or untoward.  As Obama said about it back then

“I gave some thought to … should people be on the ballot even if they didn’t meet the requirements,” he said. “My conclusion was that if you couldn’t run a successful petition drive, then that raised questions in terms of how effective a representative you were going to be.”

That’s pretty much exactly right.  Incumbents aren’t entitled to a ballot spot anymore than anybody else is.  If Palmer’s people submitted phoney signatures to get on the ballot, then she deserved to be thrown off.

I imagine that if Obama had filed papers to run for office using phoney or forged signatures that the PUMAs might object to that.

I would love to see a PUMA write for Big Hollywood. Self-empowering romance films would immediately dominate and all hope would be lost, ironically.

And they’d run almost non-stop on Lifetime, between showings of The Burning Bed.

I wanna see joint movie reviews by Kenneth Brummel—he’s a stupid fuck, perspective employers!—and Susan Hudgens.

Sorta like Siskel and Ebert, except they both suck ass like Roper.

Is puma the new jew - a people persecuted for their beliefs, and eventually for their failure to fall in line, and follow the chosen one?

Now, I am not saying that PUMAS have been subjected to the horrors of the holocaust, or the years and years of persecution, but I thought it was a snappy intro that might grab your attention.

O Hai! Im a kluless bitch an a big attenshun hor!

Christ, why stop there? Why not go with OBAMA ORDERS PUMAS TO REPORT FOR HAREM DUTY. Or if she wanted to stick closer to fact LARRY JOHNSON BLOWS 50,000 GOATS IN ONE HOUR.

LARRY JOHNSON BLOWS 50,000 GOATS IN ONE HOUR.

See, that’s change we can believe in. Unicorns will follow.

HTP—I can’t believe you just mentioned the words PUMA and harem in the same sentence. I may never recover…
Besides, if he’s looking for a harem, I’m sure he could do better than PUMAs, all he’d have to do is put a nice little request here. And he’d even get free sammiches!

While we’re at it you can consider this my official application for the submissive rumproast women club, I’ve been reading this blog for a while now, but I haven’t really posted. I’m afraid most of the interesting stuff happens when I’m asleep (curse the time difference, curse it!)

The MOST AUTHORITATIVE AND DECISIVE BLOG in the nation, possibly the world, has just made Jim Newell it’s “pig for a day.” I wunder wut PWORRL they will do nows? TEE HEE. (shoot me in the fucking face).

Welcome on board Nikki!  What color of tutu do you like? ;-)

Wow, for all the complaining about being attacked they sure are prolonging the war.

They’re so stirred up over Wonkette and yet we’ve been brutally attacking them forever.  I feel a little slighted to tell the truth.

Of course, I’ll leave it up to the heads of the sorority here, Betty and Marindenver, ‘cause I’m just a plebe, but I think a good hazing exercise for Nikki would be to have her make a turkey pot pie while nekkid.

Thanks for rushing our house, Nikki!

I feel a little slighted to tell the truth.

I have a feeling Kevin will be PUMA pig of the day very soon.  Unless Darragh’s ADD kicks in and she gets bored posting pig pics.

  [link to Larry Sinclair’s blog removed by Rumproast admin—no linky for the stinky]

Total fucking win. I have been laughing for 5 minutes.

Nikki—Welcome, we can use the help.  These guys can eat!

shorts—Wear protection when visiting Larry’s blog.  He collects IP’s and has a history of outing people.

Yeah, I just took it out. Sorry, shorts.  No linky for the stinky.

On the eighth day, God created TOR. You can take the link, but you WILL NEVER TAKE MY FREEDUMBS.

I’m a little offended that the house slaves have to be female.  What is an Islamogaybortionist to do if they were to come ‘round these parts?

Your lack of inclusiveness sickens me!

uhh…wrong thread…

Oh and I see “Stupid Wonkette” is back. You meanies are getting all the natives upset again.

All dirt has been thrown upon Larry Johnson!!

I have a feeling Kevin will be PUMA pig of the day very soon.

That would be a horrible waste of precious political action committee dollars.

And for the love of god, would someone explain the difference between “hits” and “visitors” to her? Not me, somebody else.

Welcome! Your first task is to fix me a turkey pot pie.

Please report to gimmeabreak to obtain you your official Rumproast apron and twin set. Unless I mean Mrs. Polly. Or Kerry. You dames all look a like to me: Fabulous!

OBAMA, HALF-SISTER & HAWAII OFFICALS FALSIFY MADELYN DUNHAM DEATH RECORDS!

And still no Whitey Tape. [Sigh]

And still no Whitey Tape. [Sigh]

Wrong Larry.

Larry Sinclair is the borderline psychopath drama llama who blows dead goats.

Larry Johnson is the borderline psychopath ex-CIA agent who blows dead goats.

All dirt has also been thrown upon Larry Sinclair.

(Korir will not be denied!)
