“Yeah, I didn’t think so.”

Here’s some of that great press coverage in Denver the PUMAs have been crowing about:

Sunday evening, a few dozen [Clinton-turned-McCain voters] gathered in a former garage-turned-café a few minutes and light-years away from downtown Denver for the premiere of a new anti-Obama documentary, “The Audacity of Democracy.” Participants included PUMA founder Will Bower - part of a pro-Clinton group that visited McCain headquarters shortly after she conceded in June - and Andy Martin, a conservative activist and author of an anti-Obama book who has been credited by supporters of the Democrat’s campaign as the original source of the false rumor that he is a Muslim.

Nearly all of those interviewed said they planned to vote for the Republican ticket in the fall. Some insisted Clinton might still stage a convention floor coup and win the nomination Wednesday; others said they believed McCain might tap her as VP of a unity ticket

Reports that Clinton was planning to ask her delegates to support Obama were greeted by some there with angry disbelief. “Have you heard it from her mouth? Have you? Have you? Did her campaign say it on the record?” demanded a woman in a black pro-Hillary t-shirt. “Yeah, I didn’t think so,” she said, and walked away.

The premiere party last night was a huge success.

Only in the PUMAsphere would an event with a few dozen attendees be considered “a huge success.”

“huge success”?? I’ve seen more people line up for bottled water at Walmart.

Check out this article in the Boston Globe by PUMA surrogate Lisa Wangsness “Hillary Supporters Gather”. http://www.boston.com/news/politics/politicalintelligen ce/2008/08/hillary_support.html She’s claiming 100 people were there and gushes about the whole thing.  Well she definitely has the PUMA trait of inflating their statistics.

Funny how we never see pictures of these “huge” successes :)

To say the PUMA people are delusional is being kind. Wouldn’t you feel like an idiot if you showed up in Denver expecting at least a few hundred or even a few thousand PUMAs and it turns out there aren’t even 50 at the premiere party?  I know I would.

There were technical difficulties at the Audacity “premiere”:

Shortly after 9 pm, one of the organizers announced that the moment for the long-awaited, and much publicized, screening had arrived. Everyone filed into the back room with a high ceiling and a roughly 32-inch flat screen television facing ten rows of foldable seats, where the PUMAs sat for some time, growing restless as nothing happened on the screen, no matter how many buttons and jacks were pressed or prodded.

“They’re trying to make it work,” one elder-stateswoman PUMA member said after rising from her seat. “If everybody could just relax.”

To kill time, Murphy, dressed in a red gown, thanked all the PUMAs from all over the country for coming. “I’m not going to cry,” she said bravely.

Another few minutes went by. The director, Brad Mays, a shaggy man who looked something like Bruce Vilanch, stepped forward and explained to the impatient women, “I was just burning the disk like 40 minutes ago,” and offered some technical information about the television’s “ratios.” He warned the viewers that what they would ultimately see would be heavy. “Some of this will be like reading Marshall McLellan when it first came out,” he said. “Difficult to wrap your head around.”

(Note to Brad: It’s Marshall McLuhan, not McLellan.)

To Pumapac, this was “good” press.


There are no pictures because none of the hundred Pumas whom the pac supported to travel to Denver can spare 10 minutes to upload photos to Flickr. In spite of the 24 hour “live blogging” center funded by pac funds.

Or, Pumas who think Google Earth displays live satellite photos of their Denver headquarters and who can’t find the PayPal button on their own blog pages think “uploading” is the work of the Devil—whoops, I mean, the DNC.

Or, some Pumas are smart enough to understand that photos will make clear the extent of their “movement.”
