Posted on 10/08/2008 10:21:03 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Freudenschade, baby! This is a special edition of the DUmmie FUnnies. Instead of DUmmies or KOmmies or HUffies, we are focusing on Slate senior writer, Timothy Noah, who is so confident of Obama's "victory" in November that he jumped the gun and posted the not so hidden liberal agenda out in the open. You can read his Slate ARTICLE titled, "The New Complacency," as well as an ANALYSIS of that article over at NewsBusters. So let us now join honorary DUmmie Timothy Noah in mid-gloat as he is about to reveal WAY too much in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, thanking Noah's bark, is in the [barackets]:
There's a new scent in the air. If you're a Democrat, you haven't felt it tickle your nostrils since October 1996, when everybody knew that Bill Clinton was about to beat Bob Dole. The perfume hasn't been this strong since October 1964, the eve of Lyndon Johnson's landside presidential victory. It's the sweet smell of success that you can take for granted.
[If a liberal farts by himself and there is on one else around to smell it, will it count as a scent?]
With every passing day, it's harder to imagine that the next president of the United States will be a Republicaneven a "maverick" Republican like John McCain. A consensus is emerging that the next president will be Barack Obama, a Democrat. Obama may not win in a landside, as some predict, but the common wisdom is that he will win and that the Democrats will expand their majorities in the House and Senate. Like the houseguests in Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, swing states are disappearing one by one. Goodbye, Michigan; farewell, Ohio. Will Florida evaporate next? Colorado? Missouri?
[Yes, yes! Count those chickens before they hatch!]
Conservatives can carp all they want about the insularity of the cultural elite, but it's been a very long time since liberals had the chance to experience electoral complacency at the national level. You'll forgive them if they take a moment to taste it, savor it, perhaps bottle a little extra to tide them over during the next conservative ascendancy. Practically the only thing you can't do is securitize it, but it would be churlish to complain about that, given the central role the financial markets' collapse played in bringing the New Complacency about. Democrats, you want to worry about something? Worry about your portfolio!
[Taste it. Savor that Freudenschade victory champagne. It's been a long wait.]
During the past 25 years, there have been countless sentiments that respectable Democratic politicians were never, ever supposed to say out loud for fear of angering the all-powerful Republicans. It still isn't wise for Obama to say them, but maybe the New Complacency will loosen other tongues within the political mainstream. Even if it doesn't, it's fun to think about what those utterances might be. What follows is a list, compiled with help from my fellow Slate staffers. The views expressed don't necessarily reflect those of the contributorsone of whom is a conservative Republicanor even me. But they sure are a refreshing change from what we've been hearing since 1981. With a little luck, they may soon be orthodoxies.
[DUmmie Noah is so confident of victory in November that he lets down his guard and stupidly posts the liberal agenda out in the open. Now comes the really FUn part!!!]
I think Karl Marx had some valuable insights into capitalist economies!
[With a little luck you hope that Karl Marxism becomes our economic orthodoxy.]
I think abortion should be safe and legal. Rare is fine, too, but the way to achieve that is contraception, baby!
I think Mormons are kooks!
The Second Amendment does too allow government to ban handguns!
[Keep that latter one in mind, you Pennsylvania voters.]
Let's standardize the federal age of consent at 16!
Promiscuity between consenting adults is good exercise!
I don't support the troops. I support some troops, depending on whether or not they've committed war crimes!
[And there will be war crimes trials under an Obama administration.]
The military-industrial complex is a greater menace than most foreign nations!
If Israel isn't out of the occupied territories in six months, we'll cut off all aid.
[Be sure to forward that one to Susan Silverman of the Great Schlep.]
America isn't the greatest nation in the world. We think it is only because it's our country. Duh!
[May we now question your patriotism?]
America's official languages should be English and Spanish!
[Kiss goodbye to some more states and deduct them from the Obama column.]
What's so great about the Judeo-Christian tradition?
Big-city values are better than small-town values!
I'm glad the Muslims whupped the Christians during the Crusades! Served 'em right!
[Which explains why the liberals are rooting for the Islamo-Fascists now.]
I'm not a "progressive," for Pete's sake. I'm a liberal!
I'm not a "liberal," for Pete's sake. I'm a leftist!
I'm not a "leftist," for Pete's sake. I'm a democratic socialist!
I'm not a democratic socialist, for Pete's sake. I'm a Communist! Just kidding!
[You might be just kidding but the DUmmies in DUmmieland are not. Okay, folks, please e-mail this edition of the DUmmie FUnnies around so a lot more people out there can find out what the liberals are planning if Obama wins. And thanx to Slate writer, Timothy Noah, for prematurely releasing the not so hidden liberal agenda. By doing so, you might have pulled the rug from under an Obama victory which you are already celebrating.]
The raw footage of Joe Biden will definitely have an effect on this election IF it is made public since most rational people would fear Biden being just a heartbeat away from the Oval Office after watching the video.
In before the ping!!
IB4TP again baby!
$10? Sounds fair to me.
even better - you’re IB4TP! Welcome to this most exclusive of clubs!
Wow and IB4TP too!!!! Woo hoo!
Will Pitt would breathe a sigh of relief.
“The perfume hasn’t been this strong since October 1964, the eve of Lyndon Johnson’s landside presidential victory. It’s the sweet smell of success that you can take for granted.”
Hey Hey LBJ, How many babies did you kill today?
Yeah, they loved him after another 4 years, right?
Be sure to check out this VIDEO of Joe Biden in this July 23, 1986 ABC News Broadcast. Biden appears at about the 1:25 mark and is on for only about 30 seconds. However, this newscast edited out the incredible long (and insane) rant by Biden. I saw a summary of the raw footage and his rant might last as long as 10 minutes. I do know it lasted quite a while and shows Biden to be quite unstable in the extreme. Hopefully the raw footage can be revealed to the public.
I'm awaiting a conservative ascendency too. And I won't see it even if Obama loses. Where do they get this tripe?
Bush's low approval rating is because conservative don't believe he was conservative ENOUGH!
TTBP and (a personal first) IB4TP.
PJ must be distracted by a phone call from Gov Vilsac?
Show me which ones are better. put up or shut up.
Finally! A liberal states what they realy believe.
Well which is it? English or Spanish? Why not just go whole hog and demand that The USA become the UEsA?
Another liberal advocating the murder, rape, and enslavement of Christians. He must have loved all the chapters of history on this when he went to school.
I'm sure to a liberal, it will smell like potpourri.
Clippy at homey.
The inner workings of a perverted mind.
Ha ha, you read Agatha Christie!
This is the video that will affect the election for sure!
“The raw footage of Joe Biden will definitely have an effect on this election IF it is made public since most rational people would fear Biden being just a heartbeat away from the Oval Office after watching the video.”
I hope we get it.
Wear the Bear!
Hey, I’m juggling at least 4 major projects right now plus I don’t live in the DC area so I have to hand this project off to someone else. You have the info you need, so someone out there find it. Believe me, the raw footage is quite something to behold or how else do you think I remembered it after all these years?
I’ll see what I can do to help.
I posted the brief clip so people will have confidence that the video exists. This was a VERY SMALL segment of what Joe Biden actually did which was act like a complete fruitcake over an extended period of time. The networks have the raw footage but won’t release it. If they had such footage of Sarah Palin they would have broadcast it within days of her announcement as Veep.

BTW, in the entire time that Biden was talking I don’t remember him once talking like a normal person. He was screaming the whole time and sounded quite irrational.

we need some people dressed up as KKK members to try and get in at a Palin rally I supposed they'd be arrested, but man, what a story it'd make - they could simply say - "we are confused - we heard her on the television saying things we strongly liked and wanted to come and support her, and if this country is so arrogant to ignore its roots, then we'll support her being the next Grand Wizard of our group!"
That'd make me laugh... The McSame/Plain campaign has turned into a rallying cry for hysterical bigotry. They have no shame apparently.
DNC brownshirts. They’d do better to show up dressed like that at public appearances from Robert Byrd (D-KKK) but they have no honor.
These DUmmie remarks aren’t even laughable; they are scary. Especially if Mr. O wins. This would truly be the triumph of evil.
To my fellow Jews — this Yom Kippur, pray really hard.
Can you smell . . . what Barack's got cookin'?!
Is that you, Barack Obama?
It IS you, Barack!
Sounds like most FReepers.
¡Contra la pared, compadre! ¡Sí, se puede!
Right. Cuba is. Everyone knows that.
My friend Hercule Poirot and I would like to know what’s wrong with reading Agatha Christie?
After all, she had standards and taste. I learned form her that no matter how expensive the dress, one should look at the shoes.
That’s how I know Sarah Palin is a class act, while Michelle Obama is trash.
Thanx for that partial transcript. It does show Biden was ranting for an extended period-—up to ten minutes. However, the transcript doesn’t really convey the bizarre histrionic by Biden. Even he later said he was embarrassed by his performance.
This could backfire, if I understand the context of this correctly. We’re talking about apartheid, and I’d get pretty passionate about it too. I remember my disgust at Jerry Falwell’s public support of the policy.
The last time cocaine was affordable.
McCAIN IS NOT OBAMA LITE
THERE IS MORE THAN A DIME'S WORTH OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO MAJOR PARTIES
IT'S OK TO VOTE AGAINST THE WRONG EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT SURE YOU'RE VOTING FOR THE PERFECT
Yeah, that worked out well.
LFT! Value is a capitalist paradigm! Gatherer/Hunter is where it is. Get yourself right with the commune.
