Stuff it, PUMAs Redux

I was going to tack this info onto the end of the original (and overrun) “Stuff it, PUMAs” post from yesterday, but I figured I’d give the Krazy Kat Kacklers for Klinton a fresh litter box to poop in…

Once again, I present to you the adults of the Democratic party...


Carmella Lewis, second from right, of Denver, Colo., plugs her ears as Sen. Barack Obama speaks to supporters in Unity yesterday afternoon. Lewis, a delegate pledged to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, attended the rally with fellow Clinton supporter Freda Smith, left, of Salem, N.H., to shout support for Clinton.

From The Day...

That’s because Obama’s opponents, like Carol Stone-Oks, a school psychologist who came from Cambridge, Mass., and Carmella Lewis, a Clinton delegate holding a “Hillary” sign who’d come all the way from Denver to express her displeasure at this show of mutual appreciation, seemed to be as good as the campaigns themselves at working the tired, caged-in press. [...]

Almost as soon as crowds began to trickle through security into the grassy field, ready for the first joint appearance of Obama and Clinton since he clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, Stone-Oks appeared at the metal barricade that Obama campaign staffers use to keep reporters apart from those who attend the candidate’s rallies.

At first, she attracted little notice as she complained to reporters that a small group of anti-Obama demonstrators had been moved from the front entrance to the rally site, apparently at the direction of the Secret Service. Early arrivals were more concerned with the opening drudgery of a campaign stop: finding working power strips for laptops, asking if the wireless Internet was working, ducking under tables or shrouding themselves with suitcoats in order to see their computer screens in the blinding sun and grumbling about the conditions foisted upon them by the Obama campaign’s stage management. [...]

But eventually Stone-Oks acquired an audience, for herself and for an ally, Sharon Chang, largely because they seemed to realize that Chang was what the vast array of media was looking for: A quotable detractor of the nominee who would say she’d rather vote for Republican John McCain than anyone other than Clinton. (That threat meant less coming from Stone-Oks, who conceded that she was a Republican anyway.)

”You’re familiar with ‘puma?’ “ Chang asked the veteran reporter David Lightman of McClatchy newspapers, gesturing to the logo of the sneaker company on her shirt, but meaning something very different.

When Lightman raised his eyebrows, Chang spelled it out: “Party unity, my ass.” [...]

Meanwhile, Carmella Lewis was leaning over to tell reporters that Clinton’s backers could still stage an insurrection at the convention in August, and rolling her eyes and groaning as her candidate urged supporters to do the exact opposite. When Obama began speaking, she groaned more, then wadded up bits of paper and jammed them into her ears.

And yet, there was that unity thing.

When a compatriot of Lewis’ felt faint during Clinton’s address, those around her held out campaign signs: a Clinton-Obama canopy. A mustachioed man in a dress shirt leaned forward from behind the tangle of CNN’s cables and tripods to hand Lewis a cup of water, which she accepted immediately, not recognizing David Axelrod, Obama’s chief strategist.

And MoDo was delighted to report today about one of the few people present in the little town of Unity that day who was more despicable than her:

Carmella Lewis, with her Hillary T-shirt and Hillary placard, came all the way from Denver to make sure there would be plenty of ambiguity, duality and ferocity in Unity.

Just as Hillary was testing out the unfamiliar familiarity “Barack and me” Friday and talking about “his grace and his grit,” Carmella began loudly booing and waving her sign.

“We want Hillary!” screamed the 57-year-old retired ad saleswoman and Clinton delegate.

“It’s over, lady!” yelled some Obama supporters a few yards away.

Standing between the Sharks and the Jets, David Axelrod took pity on an older friend of Carmella’s who was suffering from aridity in the Unity humidity. The chief Obama strategist fetched a glass of water and brought it to the woman, who was wearing five Hillary buttons.

This amenity did not stop the disunity. Carmella and her friends continued to cry, “Nobama!” “We love you, Hillary!” and “We need Hillary!” as Barack Obama sat onstage on a stool behind his former rival, his finger studiously at his lips.

Carmella was not impressed with all the kissing, laughing and whispering that Hill and Bam were diligently doing for the cameras, so that the moment could produce, as Obama press aide Robert Gibbs put it on “Larry King Live,” “a great picture.”

When it was Obama’s turn to speak, Carmella announced loudly, “I wish I had ear plugs.” Then, as Obama tried to ingratiate himself with the Hillary partisans in the crowd by saying that because of the New York senator, his daughters “can take for granted that women can do anything that the boys can do and do it better and do it in heels,” Carmella put her fingers in her ears.

As Obama tried to curry favor with Hillary, looking over at her sensible, sturdy shoes and marveling, “I still don’t know how she does it in heels,” Carmella tore up a tissue and stuffed it in her ears.

When Obama pandered with a line about how he wouldn’t “perpetuate a system in which women are paid less for the same work as men,” she put her hands over her tissue-stuffed ears.

“Maybe she’d like what she heard if she listened,” sighed Axelrod.

When Obama talked about moving beyond “all the petty bickering,” as Hillary robo-nodded at his side and CNN’s Candy Crowley applied pre-broadcast lipstick above her, Carmella glared at people applauding.

I am sure these Poo Ma’s will soon demonize
Hillary for supporting Obama. They eat
their own ya know.

My goodness, you’ve had quite the infestation here! I’ve heard boric acid gets rid of them. Takes care of silver fish too.

Hey Kevin,

You should ask the PUMAs if they were responsible for this crap in Orlando last night.

Dear Sir,

Mr. Mann never spoke to me directly and he reported two outrageous errors in his article.  Below is a copy of the email that I sent to him yesterday.  After reading it, I would appreciate your noting these mistakes in your posting.

Below is the emaill I sent yesterday to Mr. Mann of The Day:

Dear Mr. Mann,

Your article was incorrect on two important points.

(1) I am a registered Democrat in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  I voted for Kerry, Gore, Clinton and Carter.  I never told anyone in my life that I was a Republican and certainly not you.  I was specifically asked by some reporters if I were a Republican and I answered clearly and concisely that I was not, and that I was voting for McCain because I believed he was without question the superior choice over Obama.

(2) Further, I did not tell reporters that the Secret Service asked peaceful protestors to move.  I was outraged because staff members of the Obama camp (who had clearly marked tags that they were staff) nastily told the protestors to move.  When I asked them if Obama had rented every inch of the school property that the rally was being held on they could not answer me.  I asked them to find someone who could answer that because I didnt believe that Senator Obama would not allow peaceful protestors to stand at the end of the driveway entering the school grounds.  One young man made phone calls to “Communications” as he put it, but no one ever came.  I asked three staff members what there name was and they all refused to tell me.  In fact one told me that he would not tell his name “...because he liked his job.”  Aghast, I asked him if staff members were specifically told to not give their names.  He said it wasnt a rule and walked away from me.  I don’t understand why they wouldn’t want to stand up and be counted as an Obama supporter.  Terry McCauliffe was certainly never afraid to state his name and that he was a staunch Clinton supporter and nor am I afraid to state my views and give my name.  In addiiton, I specifically asked a Secret Service agent if he were going to take an anti-Obama sign away from an elderly gentleman who had entered the rally with a sign, because I saw him speak to the man.  The agent said, “of course not.”  At least representatives of the Federal Government respect the first amendment even if Obama’s staff does not.

I would appreciate it if you would rectify the errors that you made in your article.

Carole Stone-Oks

Carole’s living up to her last name.  Anyone who can support Hillary and then obstinately vote for McCain has surely got a few screws loose.

McCain was the lovely man who told the following joke:

“Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?  Because her father is Janet Reno.”

At a campaign rally during the primary season, a McCain supporter in his audience asked him about Hillary:

“How do we beat the bitch?”

And of course McCain refused to chastise this supporter.

McCain is also the man who said the following to his wife:

“At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.”

So Carole, you keep shooting yourself in the face all the way to November.  Moron.

How does it help your candidate to write multiple blogs about PUMA’s? Maybe you should spend some of your free time trying to figure out what BO’s official positions actually are on a host of issues, being that they have been changing hourly. But you don’t want to do that, do you? Spewing vile and venom all over the net, along with petty insults, name calling, and other mature forms of communication have always been an Obama supporters hallmark. It’s working really well! Keep it up.

It’s called taking you off your game, cultfree.  I’m obviously getting to you folks a bit or you wouldn’t be paying attention to me. You guys have already made it clear you have no intention of voting for Obama and that you’ll actively campaign against him, so I have no intention of coddling you, making nice or pulling punches. Plus I’m really good at working my “vile and venom” pretty high up into the Googles.

I smell “Poo-Ma” spirit in Orlando.

Dear Bloggers how would you act if someone called you a racist? Get a clue man. Clinton saved this country in the 1990’s. Our country is in the pits and you want to belittle this guy? He still is the BEST president we ever had. Stop drinking the OBAMA cool-aid. The Obama campaign called this great and former president a racist. That is unbelievable!!!

Hillary supporter, woman voting NO to Obama cult club.
GO PUMA Supporters (party unity my ass)!!!

Dear Bloggers how would you act if someone called you a racist?

I’d sit down with the person who accused me of being a racist, apologize for the confusion, explain why there may have been a misunderstanding and shake his hand.

Just like I did in college following an unfortunate slip of the phrase “you people” during a heated student organization meeting.

Next question.

Personally I don’t give a “Poo-Ma” about the delicate feelings of folks like you getting outraged about being called racist. I’m sure such slurs are holding you back from jobs and living in certain neighborhoods and voting and all that.  Buck up and deal with it.

Or head over to NO QUARTER and join the online
KKK meeting they run 24/7.

David, just violated the golden rule.  *poof*

And after deleting “his” comment, I see that the same person posted as “mary” above.

PUMA: Two million sockpuppets and growing.

Kevin, I think they’re all the same person.  They all quote off the same script and use the same juvenile rhetoric.  It’s probably that mslas Pooma from yesterday.

I gotta admit it’s fun to tweak him/her/it, though.  Why is playing with trolls so entertaining?  I’m surely going to hell.

Cello, they’re not all of the same people (they’re coming from three different PUMA sites) but like wingnuts they’ve been banging around the same echo chamber for so long they end up spewing repetitive horseshit that reads like it’s being generated from the same poorly-written PERL script.

Fort Knox Five!

We might as well talk about music.  It’s not like the PUMA folks are bringing anything to the table.

Fine by me.  Can we talk about how great the Carolina Chocolate Drops were on Thursday night?  Or does that constitute me playing the race card?

No, but seriously, go see them if they ever play near you. Amazing.

As disappointed as I have been in Senator Obama during the last few weeks, these harpies remind me again why I could never have voted for Hillary.

And they called Obama supporters cultists!  These women are a psychotic break in progress.

Hahahaha…Way to go, my little minions.  They have fulfilled what they were sent to accomplish and you held up like the kool-aid drinkers I have made you.  Thank you, again, for your hero worship!!

What can I do to repay you?  Here..have a piece of gum.

What can I do to repay you?

Cancel your WebTV account and get a hobby?

Oh Kevy Boy..Is that your way of playing Big Brother!!  Oooohh..You scare me.  Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.  Why don’t you just POOF me, then?  I you can show everyone that you are the BIG FISH in this tiny pond. (tsk tsk) You’re just another of BHO’s blinded followers.  Good luck to you IF he ever gets close to that RED BUTTON!!!!

As for Carmella Lewis, since she purports to be a Clinton delegate from Colorado, I encourage you to do as I have done and visit the CO Democratic Party website, where you will find email addresses for the state party leadership and state DNC members.

I have written each of them indicating that Ms. Lewis’ status as a delegate should be revoked and she should be replaced by an alternate.  Preferably one who is able to attend public events without making a complete ass of herself and offensively disrespecting both Senator Obama AND SENATOR CLINTON with her noxious grandstanding for the media.

A person like this has no place filling a cherished seat on the Colorado delegation.

The WI Dems already stripped one of their delegates of her seat at the convention for giving interviews to the media in which she insisted she would vote for McCain.

Let Carmella picket the convention from outside with her PUMA girlfriends, but don’t allow her in the building.

What these PUMA don’t seem to fathom is that 18 million people voted for Obama too… and if Hillary’s supporters are perceived to act as the spoilers in this election, those 18 million people aren’t going to come-around to Hillary in ‘12 or ‘16.  They too have a ball that they can take home.

I guess the irony is lost on them that they selected a largely solitary animal as their mascot.  An animal that generally doesn’t cooperate with others of its own species, doesn’t appear to have any social structures, doesn’t even cohabitate with their own mates.

i can NEVER get enough of people TYPING IN CAPS and using multiple EXCLAMATION points!!!!!!  it makes me feel like i’m in a 1995 AOL CHAT ROOM!!!!!!!!  hahahahahahahahaha.

what an obnoxious pack of trolls.

James, what you’re witnessing are fits of “poutrage”.  Fascinating isn’t it?

cello—-thanks for increasing my awareness of pumas.  the woman stuffing her ears with tissues is the most embarrassing public display of stupidity i can think of since a man named Paul West covered his entire house in plastic and duct tape back in 2003 b/c tom ridge told him there might be a chemical attack.

GREAT job Kevin!
I am linking to this story over on my blog!

Ah yes, puma, hear us groan.

Hi GREAT blog you have here I’m so glad I found it. I thought I’d add my 2 million cents if thats ok.

I am so sick and tired of these well what would be the word to use cats are too large, perhaps kittens ok that works…back to my thought ...
I am one of those 18 million votes as are many other millions of people and I for one am sick of being counted as one of the litter. Now they even have the gall to have t-shirts and other worthless merchandise printed up with “18 million strong” on them?? I feel a law suit coming on.

It’s about time someone took a stand against them, I found your blog through a VERY brave young woman’s this is the address
She has found out some VERY interesting things about this litter. I urge you to take a look.

As for Billy’s post I hear more of a collective whine. ;)
