I don't read her site. Is she opposed to comma usage in general or just for this screed? I know that seems a little thing, but there is something of civility in the proper use of grammar. This woman has no balance, no center, no understanding of the world around her. If she were not so hateful, it would be sad.

No, she doesn't believe in commas. She does, however, believe in exclamation points, sentence fragments, and all-caps.

That, and every nutty fucking conspiracy theory she hears.

Pammycakes, Obama won by almost 8 million votes. You Pammycakes, you are the fraud. Maybe the plastic surgeon can make you feel better, as you will be getting no help from reality.

Signed

- not a fan of Atlas Juggs.

Wow.

We have seen the thuggish abuses of power that brought Obama into office, but that is only a taste of what an Obama administration in control of the Federal government will be able to do.

Has she been asleep for the past 8 years? For the whole "suspension of habeas corpus" and "we don't need no stinking warrants" and "Geneva Convention? Sorry, I don't watch Sci-fi" bullshit?

For my own part I do not recognize Obama as my President, nor will I refer to him as such. He has no legal right to serve in office nor has he won a legal election. Nor do his cronies have any right to serve in any position they are appointed to

This a post from 2000, right? RIGHT? (Let me guess: she was one of the "We won--get over it" crowd in 2000, huh?)

Surely, there's some medication that could help this poor woman...

Is he was really that arrogant, wouldn't he have stopped campaigning weeks ago?

Does she think she's atarting a movement? Really, that is just a speech that any coach would give to a losing team plus a few delusions.

Fuckin' frightening, folks.

a long winter is coming if not of the thermometer, then of the soul.

Meanwhile, we all continue to slog through the long winter of truly crappy writing.

Wow. This is fucking crazy. I hung up on a relative last night after they said that they don't recognize Obama as president either, nor will they respect him. WTF? I was hoping for a little bit of a longer honeymoon than this. Wow.

db.....You think this is crazy, you should have seen her screed on how Obama is Malcom X' love child.

db, that's sad to hear. Give 'em a few weeks, they're still in denial, soon they'll be bargaining.

I read her site occasionally and I think she writes quite well. She is also a raving lunatic.

Hmm. Doesn't recognize him. Well, I understand that, I said the same about the usurper in 2000. Of course, he had actually USURPED THE ELECTED PRESIDENT BY SUPREME COURT FIAT.

This though - he won. He was elected. He IS the president.

So now, we can all refer to her as an unAmerican Traitor who hates her country cuz she refuses to recognize the "duly elected" president (even though this one really is?)

Jude, you are braver than I, to slog through that.

I can't believe they haven't sent this woman to the funny farm yet. Seriously, lady, you've got issues.

I once read "The Rise of David Duke" a book by some NOLA J-types who were chronicling the KKK leader's rise to power in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The frightening thing about the book was that for all the stunts he pulled (the Klan Patrol along the Mexican border was a particularly interesting one) it was when he donned the suit instead of the hood, the banner of the state instead of the banner of the Klan and the voice of "calm" as opposed the voice of "anger" that people really started buying into his shtick.

In reading this, I'm fearful of what we will see over the next four years from these types of folks. The ranting, raving, N-dropping, stereotyping fools are easy to sidestep and smack down. It's these people (who, for the record, I think weaves some amazingly good prose) that can be the most deadly, as she uses intellect and strong verbiage to lay out the agenda of hate. She does it in such a deft and calm manner that it really is chilling.

I worry about who's listening and who's buying under the guise of "I'm not a racist, see, but..."

Creepy.

Unhinged.

Really, what more would it take for her to recognize the election as legit? For God's sake, he won by more than Bush ever did, even if you ignore the shenanigans that went on in Ohio in 2004! He kicked McCain's ass from here to the other end of the country, taking states that nobody believed would go Democratic. McCain fucking conceded by 11:30 Eastern Time. But she doesn't concede? She doesn't think this is legit?

Honest to God, if Jesus Christ Himself came down from heaven and stood in front of Pam and told her that yes, Barack Obama is in fact the President elect of the United States and deserving of all the respect due to the office, she still wouldn't accept it, would she?

Some people really are beyond help.

Sorry, Nora.

Pam Geller's Jewish. She wouldn't care what Jeebus has to say. :)

Donnie--nice to see you, brother.

And do some of you people really think she writes well? Her shit reads like an ADD-afflicted middle schooler to me.

Nora -- I don't think she would take Jesus' word, being militantly Jewish (a la Meir Kahane).

Jude-

I always had a thing for Bret Easton Ellis's early work, which also was devoid of a great many punctuation marks. The language is clear, the writing is strong and her use of metaphor isn't outlandish. Maybe I've been reading Freshman Comp papers too long, but it's not bad (the writing anyway). Even as an Ellis fan, I'm thinking she needs to start subdividing some of those sentences and keeping simpler structure. Still, again, compared to the general "dees folk gonna be roonin our 'conomy" blather I get out of most of these rants, this is well written.

It's this kind of stuff that sways the middle to the right. The folks with just enough education to feel educated gravitate toward this. They can't agree with the full-on spewing-crazy whack-jobs. However, with longer sentences, bigger words and such, the folks who want to be angry but can't go full-bore anger nuts are usually able to grab on to this.

It's frightening. And yes, it's not Hemingway, but it's better than average...

Doc

Her post and some of these comments are weirdly amusing to me. Change "Obama" to "Bush" in there. You wouldn't have been surprised to read that on any left-wing blog. I think I *did* read it, actually. It's really strange, like Geller somehow internalized the anti-Bush screeds, and now they are popping out in distorted form. Massive cognitive dissonance at work there, I think.

But then at the same time, I am also seeing comments that sound straight out of right-wing blogs talking about those left-wing blog posts. OMG overblown florid language! On a *blog post*, no less. Heaven forfend!

Is that how it is going to go now? We just swap masks?

Yo, Pammie: Project much?

That said, do not underestimate how many people there are who think this way. And do not underestimate what they will be willing to do. They impeached Clinton; now, their anger is even greater.

Is that how it is going to go now? We just swap masks?

Let's see, in 2000:
-The race was extremely tight
-Gore wins the popular vote nationwide
-There were well-documented irregularites in the Florida vote
-There were complaints and protests about these voting irregularites throughout the whole election (not just "after our guy didn't win")
-Jeb Bush was gov. of Florida
-Florida Sec. of State Katheryn Harris was W's state campaign manager
-Bush filed a lawsuit in the US Supreme Court to stop the recount
-The US Supreme Court had questionable (at best) jurisdiction in this matter, and many legal experts insisted they shouldn't even hear the case
-The Court finds in favor of Bush, AND states that this case "doesn't count" as a legal precendent
-Congress felt the issues in the 2000 election were substantial enough to merit a legislative fix (HAVA--not so fixy, but still...)

In 2008:
-Obama has been ahead in the polls for weeks--and evenually leads every single poll by a respectable (if not comfortable) margin
-McCain pulled his campaign out of several states to concentrate his resources on crititcal areas
-McCain admitted straight up he was running behind, that he was the "underdog"
-After Palin ratcheted up the rhetoric, many conservative intellectuals abandoned McCain and publicly rebuked him
-There were only a few minor complaints about voting irregularities, and no protests anywhere
-The election had a record-breaking turnout of 64%! (I can't remember a single election over 50% in my entire lifetime)
-Obama won the popular vote by the biggest margin in twenty years
-McCain did not contest the election in any way--in fact he conceded before several states had finished polling.

I can totally see the comparison.

Not that this makes Crazy Pammy any less crazy, but -- please note that the screed quoted above is not the work of Crazy Pammy herself.

She's merely reprinting the looney-tunes words of another wingnut blogger who calls himself "Sultan Knish."

Ah. My bad, dumpendebat. I thought that was uncommonly lucid for her. :)

She's merely reprinting the looney-tunes words of another wingnut blogger who calls himself "Sultan Knish."

Aha! OK, that makes more sense. This didn't have nearly enough all-caps sentences to be the work of Pammycakes.

Why this douchebag uses a perfectly ok book to hide behind and spew her obviously bigoted crap is beyond me? Atlas is just a fucking book and not a Bible. Again, it's not Rand who bothers me but her cultists. They are the very embodiment of the sheep-collective she wrote against, who thump her writings as their holy books. And they accuse us of being stupid enough to think Obama is our messiah. What a bunch of idiots.

"I'm not your messiah."
"Yes, messiah."

I like your blog. I'll be back!

We have seen only a shadow of the ruthless methods that were used to bring him to power, and even that shadow is mostly dismissed as conspiracy theories. But that is also our best hope.

Is she saying that conspiracy theories are her best hope or is this just Asperger Syndrome?

The aroma of wingnut angst is pleasing to Ba'al.
