Fifty-first in a series of real-time empirical observations

In the time it takes you to read this post, nearly everyone who attended YearlyKos 2006 will have forgotten about it completely—with the exception of one rather pale dude from Iowa who inadvertantly got lucky with a tipsy Trenton schoolteacher who found herself so wildly turned on by the word “caucus” that the mere mention of it compelled her touch herself inappropriately.

—Well, him, and the guy who stole Barbara Boxer’s wine glass for the express purpose of harvesting the California Senator’s DNA and having her cloned.  You know—for freedom!**

  1. Well, If that’s not a reason for a cloning ban, I don’t know what is…sheesh

  2. Oh, I don’t know. For a lot of these folks, this was the first time in a long while they’ve gone out in public and been accepted, instead of pelted with stones and driven back into their mother’s basement by the righteous fury of the community. It might stick in their minds a bit longer. The Elephant Man really enjoyed that opera, you know.

  3. Robert, that got an outloud laugh from me.

  4. Oh boy the cat fights are on…Kos calls Byron York a “chickenshit(hawk)”—snore, you’d think they would have used the little yearly circle jerk to dream up some new and creative retorts…meanwhile Hamsher is doing what she does best, implying people have “substance abuse” problems…this time “Wankette”…she pounced out like a 1000 word screed as usual keeping it high brow…making fun of Wonk’s skinny legs too!

    Check out Hamshers comment section to that thread…she is really, really nice to one of her fellow travelers who happens to think the post was a poor use of time, smarts and energy…she is wicked.

  5. Ixnay on the oningclay!

  6. It seems that you enjoy YearlyKos as much as I enjoy this blog. Glad everyone is having fun.

  7. “Remember: The second time as farce”

    I don’t know why that popped into my head. Along with a picture of a jumping armadillo.

    Strange. Up the meds, or try walking on water?

    Decisions, decisions…

    SB: near

    term prognosis

  8. Any truth to the rumor that the pale Iowa guy and the tipsy Trenton schoolmarm first hooked up after roasting marshmallows over a bonfire of Ann Coulter books?

    At least that’s what I heard…..

  9. I think the Trenton schoolteacher must have thought Iowa guy was, like, 13.

    And she’s a biology teacher (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) who heard “caucus” and thought people were talking about bacteria.

    Especially when the staff caucus was called.

  10. A-hole has just been mailing it in lately.

    I wonder why the lack of spunk (not that kind).

    Must have something to do with the death of a good friend.

    Soft, pudgy, cuddly kind of guy he called “Zarqi”.

    Buck up little friend, you’ll find another mass murderer to root for.  Losing loved ones in loud USAF boom-booms is all part of growing up.

  11. “Staff caucus”!!!  Okay, I spewed my beer on that one.

  12. Soft, pudgy, cuddly kind of guy he called “Zarqi”.

    He’s so progressive! With that love it or leave it attitude of his.

  13. JEALOUS BITCHES!!!

  14. He didn’t do it for freedom. He did it for ebay.

  15. You guys!!

    Super cool news!

    You know who I saw on CSPAN’s IMPORTANT coverage of Yearly Kos?  Darksyde!!!  Remember when he posted here once?  Remember how it was our only chance to ask a real front-pager questions? It was a real brush with greatness. 

    Jeez.  And now he’s on YearlyKos on CSPAN. Sooo cool.

  16. OMG!!!!! Maybee, That’s incredible!!!! i would have commented sooner, but I just came to after swooning about that bit of info.  wow! CSPAN!!!!

  17. “This community first demonstrated its power by supporting Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign,” the Washington Post reported in a typical passage, “helping him raise tens of millions of dollars and propelling him into front-runner status for the Democratic nomination until his candidacy imploded.”

    We need a new political term to underscore the WaPo’s take on “power.” I believe we have to go beyond “soft power” to something along the lines of “flaccid power” to describe the Kostards impact on things.

    Also, I don’t remember Dean’s campaign imploding.  It was more of a multiple warhead airburst…with screaming and stuff.

  18. - How about “Noodle power”…. talking insanity to reason…

    - As I recall his “primary run” ended with the win in Vt. Something like “dead on delivery”.

    - On the Yearly Kossack-out, I understand some of their own were hammering the Kos kids pretty good. Why don’t they make a movie of that, something like “The Late Great Democratic Party”….

    - Anyway, if Ann Marie came home with a sore ass, then shes happy…..

  19. A-hole has just been mailing it in lately.

    Yep. The first ever example of electronic masturbation.

    I told him on an earlier thread he’ll go blind if he keeps this up.

  20. Uh oh.

    Fitzgerald has made an announcement.

    Karl Rove will NOT be charged, and obviously, has NOT been indicted.

    Leopold and crew (and Jeff) are now officially WRONG.

  21. Fitzy’s stock just crashed on the left.

  22. Karl Rove will NOT be charged, and obviously, has NOT been indicted.

    Sure, that is what he wants you to think.

    This is a double-secret indictment.

    Fitsy is just lulling Rove into a false sense of security, waiting for him to slip up.

    He’s pretty crafty that way, for, you know, not being a Jew. (/leopold)

  23. Rove really wasn’t that big of a fish anyway.  Bob Ney is the real Godfather.

  24. I just saw a guy standing at an intersection holding a sign:

    “Will break story for food.  God bless.”

    Does anyone know what Jason Leopold looks like?

  25. “Hi, I’m Jason Leopold, you may know me from such stories as ‘I’m Totally Full of Shit, Volumes I-XXV’.”

  26. Obviously, Gannon/Guckert got to him and took pictures. But don’t question my anti-homophobia.

    Damn you, Rove!

    tw: All the world’s a stage

  27. Prepare for the Leopold frogmarch from “Truthout.”

    tw: Psych. LOL

  28. Really, guys, it’s not nice to point and laugh.  I’m sure this is a dark day for Leopold.

  29. I just heard that Rove has been cleared in the Plame case. How’s truthout taking it?

  30. Bush is in Baghdad.

  31. How can he be in Baghdad when a hurricane is about to hit?  Shirker.

  32. MayBee—thanks for the tip! 

    Bush is in Baghdad!

  33. UP

    TODAY’S NEWS: No news today.

  34. How can he be in Baghdad when a hurricane is about to hit?  Shirker.

    And when we’re losing territory there to ..um…someone, or a lot of someones, don’t really know who, but we’re losing to them, etc…

    The truth is, of course, that Sealed v. Sealed is America v. Bushitler and Chimpy went to Baghdad because he can’t be indicted over there.

    And, he said he was going to be at Camp David finally trying to come up with a plan for Iraq. BUSH LIED!!!

    /moonbat off

    Good on you, Mr. President. Please give those flyboys an extra pat on the back for us.

  35. Are you kidding TallDave? His plan to kill the DLC is to get behind them!  Poor Warner, unwitting party-thrower in Kos’s diabolical scheme.

  36. now now, we are just going to have to be a little sensative to the moonbats today. They have worked so long and hard on that Grand Unified Conspiracy Theory, such a cold smack up along the side of the head with the flounder of reality has got to hurt.

    Might to a great day to buy some stock in Pharmacuticals.

  37. Lament of an East Coast ProteinWisdom reader:

    Oh, would that timezones

    Didn’t seperate myself from thine

    Sharp wit early in the morning.

    Especially on those dawns

    When Reality’s jubilant sunrise breaks

    Upon dumbasses like Jason Leopold.

    TW:  ‘Indeed.’ Heh.

  38. something along the lines of “flaccid power”

    Wishbone, may I use that?  I have some papers to write for ILE-CC, and I thinks some bored instructor at the Command and general Staff Officer College at Fort Leavenworth might perk up seeing that term in an essay.  I think I can slip it in somewhere near a reference to Samuel Huntington and the “clash of civilizations”.

    Thanks for that.

  39. Oh my…the DUers are beside themselves!

    … There’s still Libby’s trial to look forward to.

    …The fix is in.

    …On the other hand, I am sure that there are numerous other criminal enterprises that Kkkarl has participated in, so we just have to keep digging.

    And of course, they are trying to soothe each other that this MUST mean Rove turned Cheney and a Cheney indictment is on the table.

    meanwhile Truthout is “standing by their story”

    But Truthout.org—the one publication to report, repeatedly, that Rove was definitely going to be indicted—isn’t buying it.

    I reached Truthout editor Marc Ash on his cel phone this morning. “I wasn’t aware that he had said that,” he said of Luskin’s announcement, but insisted that Truthout was “absolutely” standing by its earlier reporting.

    “We’ve done a lot of work on this story, we’ve talked to a lot of people,” he said, “and some of the people who provided information for the story are absolutely in a position to know.”

    So if Truthout’s reporting—by correspondent Jason Leopold—is correct, is Ruskin lying? “Robert Luskin’s allegations are in the best interest of his client, not necessarily the press,” Ash said. “I think that the information he is providing is directly contradicted by the information we have.”

    BWHAHAHAHAH!

  40. Ok, I looked at the footage from the Kos Shindig and I saw something that disturbed me. Despite my political leanings, I want to issue a call for both sides of the asile to heed. A common call to decency, as it were, in this one request: “Stay away from the tanning beds if your going to speak in public.”

    It’s freaky, in a not good way.

    (It’s not like George Harrison ever won anyone an election. Geez.)

  41. The truth is, of course, that Sealed v. Sealed is America v. Bushitler and Chimpy went to Baghdad because he can’t be indicted over there.

    Pablo, you are brilliant.  I do not think we have an extradition treaty with Iraq.  Your theory is the ONLY THING that makes sense.

    Good on you, Mr. President. Please give those flyboys an extra pat on the back for us.

    Amen.

  42. Don’t miss Tim Blair’s take on YearlyKos.

    The highlight:

    You are only 1,000 people at the Riviera Hotel. Check the attendance at these conventions, also scheduled for Vegas this month:

    * Western States Roofing Contractors Association: 4,000

    * Las Vegas Hair & Nail: 12,000

    * Electrical Apparatus Service Association: 4,000

    * Intl Esthetics Cosmetics & Spa Conference: 33,000

    * Coffee Fest: 8,000

    * Casino Chips & Gaming Token Collectors: 5,000

    * Truck Show: 30,000

    Don’t stress people, the Kos kiddies are still outnumbered four to one by the Western States Roofing Contractors Association.

  43. Maybee, you just can’t parody the left:

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a look of misery and dejection on the face of my daughter as I just did a moment ago.  She just couldn’t understand why the President would be going to Iraq when so many things are wrong in this country. “Doesn’t Mr. Bush care about us anymore?” she asked pitifully.



    I tried to keep my voice steady, but it became increasingly difficult – the rage and feelings of helplessness were just too much.  I think my daughter could tell something was wrong.  I found myself at such a loss for words – nothing made any sense; nothing makes sense anymore.  I finally had to admit, “Honey, I just don’t know – I don’t know what’s going on in this country anymore…”

  44. Shank,

    I’ve long thought that Jeff should give me his phone number, so when something really big breaks, I could wake him up and he could post a tad earlier.

    Sound like a plan? I’ll be waiting for your email, Goldstein.

    t/w : pushing the boundaries beyond what Jeff finds comfortable.

  45. The truth is, of course, that Sealed v. Sealed is America v. Bushitler and Chimpy went to Baghdad because he can’t be indicted over there.

    I sat down with her on the sofa and (as calmly as I could) tried to explain to her why the President seems to be abandoning his country.  “Honey, I think his boss, Mr. Rove, sent Mr. Bush out of the country in order to keep himself out of the newspapers.  You see, he wasn’t sure if he was going to be arrested today or not, and so he planned Mr. Bush’s trip ahead of time just in case…”

  46. More from TallDave’s find :

    When I finished her lower lip started to tremble and her eyes began to fill with tears, “Daddy” she said, “why are the Republicans doing this to the country?”  Well, that was it for me:  I finally fell apart.  She just fell into my arms and we both began sobbing for several minutes.

    What is with these people? Leaving children under the care of an extreme moonbat is child abuse. Children and politics do NOT mix. My oldest is 11, and I still tell him to lay off the politics.

  47. TallDave: It’s so unfair to do this to us before we’ve added sugar to our coffee.

    On the bright side: According to Byron York and Michael Barone, the Dems should be deeply concerned about the fallout on their campaigns once the vitriolic and insane spew from the Kos krowd starts reaching the light of day. The average Dem voter would blanch at the noxious fumes coming from that cesspool.

    So let’s all make sure that Kos and his minions get all the publicity they can handle. We can’t afford to forget that Lenin took over Russia with fewer people than are at some board meetings. It won’t do to be complacent.

  48. Michelle Malkin trotted out kos’ “Screw Them” quote on O’Reilly last night. Sasha Burns noted that Markos wasn’t so popular when he said that, so you really shouldn’t worry about it…

  49. TallDave:

    Is that what Greg Kuperberg meant with “reality tending to the liberal”?

    TW ‘tell’, as in ‘Do’.

  50. This just in: Fitzmas cancelled

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,199241,00.html

    SB: anything

    on Truthout comitting suicide?

  51. ……so I shut off the engine of the huge SUV with the dual gas tanks (one with a hole in it too kill the weeds on the lane as I pull out of my property which I just sprayed with TryBeak, the triple action formula that is guaranteed to kill all endangered birds, damn birds and their screeching). 

    “Daddy?  Why was that dirty, smelly man going number 2 under the “No Left Turn” sign by the traffic light?”

    “Honey, he was a reporter and he tried to destroy someone without first getting his facts straight.  His credibility suffered, and now he’s working the refrigerator-box beat for his new blog “Help. Please.  Will let you pee on me for food.”

    “I’ll never be like him Daddy.”

    “That’s good honey.  Now have another Reeses Cup wrapped in lead-based foil and throw the wrapper out the window.  The last of the timberwolves will lick off the chocolate and die.”

    “I love you Daddy.”

    “I love you too, honey.”

  52. Leaving children under the care of an extreme moonbat is child abuse. Children and politics do NOT mix. My oldest is 11, and I still tell him to lay off the politics.

    Carin,

    Amen Sister. One of the most important things to do as a parent is to make sure your kids feel safe and everything is going to be fine. Could you imagine having this nutjob as your mother with all this gloom and doom the sky is falling bullshit. Why in the world would you make your kid cry over politics. It all is very twisted. Using your own kid as a pawn to make a political point is sickening. Poor kid, it is going to take an army of therapist to put the pieces together.

  53. mojo

    Truthout is sticking to their story

    this is fun!

  54. Sasha Burns noted that Markos wasn’t so popular when he said that, so you really shouldn’t worry about it…

    Did Sasha Burns’ mouth still make her look like she could bite off a dingleberry from Michael Moore’s bunghole through a picket-fence?

    Just wondering.

  55. I didn’t notice, alppuccino. I was too busy looking for new galaxies in the twin black holes that are her enormous nostrils.

  56. Michelle Malkin trotted out kos’ “Screw Them” quote on O’Reilly last night. Sasha Burns noted that Markos wasn’t so popular when he said that, so you really shouldn’t worry about it…

    Actually it was Fox News Commentator, and feline sexy fly honey, Kirsten Powers.  ahhhhh, Kirsten Powers, mmmmmmmmm.  Big E likey.  Although to be honest MM is wayyyyyyy hotter but she intimidates we with her intellect.  No such problem with KP.

    For some reason O’Reilly has them on together all the time.  It’s very distracting, I spend the whole segment drooling on myself and cursing the show’s director everytime they put O’Reilly on the screen.

  57. - There seems to be a pattern among the denizens of a certain segment of the population, as evidenced by an event during the “Broome closet community college caper”, and now this.

    - “Using children as a shield”…. What other group do we know that does that?

  58. Yeh Big E…. thats one “KP” doodie I’d volunteer for any time….

  59. Kirsten Powers is nice, but not as crotch-meltingly hot as a few other Fox foxes.  Besides, she’s just on there as a token Dem – a little bone the Cheney network throws to the reality-based crew, doncha know.

    She just couldn’t understand why the President would be going to Iraq when so many things are wrong in this country.

    She probably also couldn’t understand what it’s like to go feet-first through an industrial shredder, or to see your family executed in front of you by medieval death cultists.  So, y’know, perspective and all that.

  60. “Doesn’t Mr. Bush care about us anymore?” she asked pitifully.

    Pitiful indeed.

    What a insanely selfish kid these people are raising.

    How about: “No honey, he is President of the United States, not your babysitter.”

  61. Was that Kirsten (who has not a damned thing on Juliet Huddy)? Sasha was on something last night, and her facial holes are seared into my memory. Seared, I tell you!

  62. She does have some mondo nostrils.  She could probably be a pretty decent distance runner with that XXL air cleaner (if she installed a bug guard for that massive grille).

  63. Big E, American Son, Pablo, alppuccino,

    Stop, you’re tempting me to try Fox News again.  The eye candy might be nice, but I just can’t stand:

    Bill “I’m Right, Boorish and Boring” O’Reilly.

    The Sean and Alan “Talk over the guests when they aren’t talking over each other” Show.

    Greta “exploit young white blond girl tragedy until even I can’t stand it any more – with legal commentary from Aruba” Van Susteren.

  64. MarkD, just do what I do—don’t watch FoxNews after 8 p.m. Eastern.

  65. Mark,

    I think of Greta more as shouting from the street corner:

    “Get yer dead white girls right here! Get yer dead white girls!”

  66. That’s the most posts I have ever seen on such s short story. I had to pitch in:)

  68. Good Day! The extraordinary experience of meeting a completely exception person like the one named Iowa who got very bless with a Trenton school teacher who found herself so wild when she heard the word “causus”, if you know what i mean, that mere mention of it compelled her touch herself in appropriately could be one of my my unforgettable experience.
