November 05, 2012


A week off posting? I'm almost certain Schadenfreude is going to dictate otherwise.

Also, I've been waiting for the Republicans to start their own "Death to America" chants -- I suspect Mr. Let-America-Burn is just the forefront of the new GOP trend. If America won't love them, it won't be long before Limbaugh starts telling his listeners to strap on a bomb vest for Al Qaeda.

I just love the "and this is now" polls listed in the Freeper thread.
Talk about cherry picking...

The preponderance of polling gives the edge to Obama, but you can always find a daily outlier showing the opposite. To the Freepers, the outlier is the signal, and the preponderance is the noise.

How very zen of them.

Wow. Hadn't heard about the volunteer in Florida claiming to be beaten. Brings back memories of last election where someone claimed to have been cut with a ?B? for being a repub.

I also think of the people signing up people in Florida who were shown to be illegally discarding people trying to sign up as dems. Wonder if these are connected.

Hey - it might surprise you guys, but this little weekly excersize in nutpicking takes in excess of three hours to put together.

Because I type REALLY slow.


I have been telling my family and friends for at least the past few months, that Donald Trump has a goodie on Obama that he will drop at the right time!!! The Libs & Obamabots may trash Trump, but.......Trump is far wiser and smarter then Obama ever will be. Stay tuned folks!!! [October 23, 2012 8:46:57 AM by JLAGRAYFOX ( My only objective is defeat and destroy Obama & his Democrat Party, politically!!!)]

Sly fox that Trump is, I'm betting he drops the bombshell when Obama least expects it, say 11/07/12.

And the Freepathon is actually moving along. They're at 76% in just over a month. Of course there is weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth over what the Freepathon pays for, along with gloom and doom over what will happen to the site on election day. I wonder whether vanman will be back.

I'm a little surprised that nobody in South Freepistan seems to have noticed Lindsey Graham's preemptive take on the inevitable excuse that Romney wasn't conservative enough:

If I hear anybody say it was because Romney wasn’t conservative enough I’m going to go nuts,” Graham said. “We’re not losing 95 percent of African-Americans and two-thirds of Hispanics and voters under 30 because we’re not being hard-ass enough.


Thanks for all your hard work this cycle. Tuesday's going to be a tough call: crack van or watching the Freepi freep out? I guess with the speed of their site I could do both.


No post next week?? The tears of the freepers will taste much sweeter than Scott Tenorman's..
