i Hit The Big Time

i am officially big-time. Gennie of Dizzy-girl notified me that i got quoted on the Democratic Underground cranksite. Here's the post:

What a rightwing blog says about protests of Republican Convention

'We can expect a big freak show at the upcoming Republican Convention in New York. The far left nut jobs will ensure Bush's re-election, even though they will think they're doing the opposite. In fact, i hope they go on a total Bush-hatin' rampage in the streets of New York. Everyone knows who's side they're on, and the worse the protesters act, the more people will realize how low the Democratic Party has fallen.'

-The rightwing blog, Annika's Journal, July 26, 2004


If you go, please wear business clothing (suit and tie for a man)
and please don't block traffic.

I'm expecting the police to taser and club peaceful protestors, and I hope things stay calm.

That's a freakin' joke. You usually gotta have a job to own a suit and tie, and none of those people have jobs. If they did, they sure as hell wouldn't have time to be protesting. Plus, asking these professional protesters not to block traffic is like asking shit not to stink. Their whole purpose for existence is to make themselves noticed in the most obnoxious way.

To paraphrase David Crosby: Let your freak flag fly baby!

I want you to buy all the shares of GM and Halliburton your means allow: put them in my group's total control: and keep on until we have controlling interest of the entire corporations! Then I will place the benevolent and uber socially responsible Michael Moore as the CEO of GM, and the urbane, wise and uber evolved Ted Rall as Halliburton's CEO!

We can do it - we can make the difference! We can control corporate America and make it Progressive! BUY! ACT NOW!

I see one of the nut jobs escaped the insane asylum and is ranting on your page.

Does this idiot even know how Moore tramples on the rights of indivduals and the truth and exploits them to get what he wants: 150M in the bank. Why doesn't she start by exhorting Moore to use his ill gotten booty for better causes....
oh, that's right, he doesn't have a conscience!

Michele, call me either crazy or naive, but I'd assumed that Zizz's comment was a joke. Uh, right?

Bush and his minions at NASA created Hurricane Charlie! This gives him an excuse to write his brother a blank check instead of educating blacks. It'll also get his white Christian ass all over the media there in violation of McCain Feingold!

Wow, that's hitting the big time. Noticed on the DU? You're my idol.

Congrats, Annie -- you've not only hit the bigtime, but you've caused dozens or hundreds of lefties to waste precious man-hours whining about you. (Take a look at the comments generated by the post you linked to.) "We're not freaks -- we're regular Americans! Practically everybody I know is a patchouli-wearing permanent student with relaxed standards of personal grooming!" Fantastic! The more time they spend arching their collective backs, hissing about you and reassuring one another that they're in the mainstream, the less time they spend fucking up my country.
