Skip to comments.Funny Thing about Democratic Underground
Posted on 09/10/2008 10:03:00 AM PDT by Shenandoah
I was just over on the Democratic Underground site to see what they might be saying about Sarah Paulin, and I noticed something very peculiar about the people who post there - they don't post complete thoughts. I went through thread after thread, and they were all alike. I had logged on there hoping to read some provocative commentary and to get a feel for what hard-core leftists are thinking, but I couldn't find any posts of any substance - no insightful or well-thought out comments. For the most part, people there just type a little blurb in the heading of their post, but don't follow up with any written statements. If you're lucky, you might find a smiley face or a LOL in the body of their posts, but not much more. Why does the term shallow come to mind?
Did you shower before you came back here?
This is your brain.
This is your brain after 20 years of dope smoking.
They are called DUmmies all over the ‘net for a reason....
Unfortunately, its not much better over here at FR. Thread after thread with nothing more than a trite phrase or a sentence fragment of opinion. Gone are the early days of Free Republic when substantive opinion and analysis was common. I think that many of those folks still tune in to see what’s going on, but we seldom read the wisdom of their thoughts and analysis.
Did you see the hoopla that some big piece of Mccain scandal was going to break today ? Something about prescription drugs and the Washington Post.
The F-word is a complete thought for them.
I know exactly what you mean. It was to the point where I thought I wasn’t logged in properly — I kept saying “Where are all the comments?!?!” — then I realized, it was just pages of one-liners, and the same one-liners over and over again. DUmmies like the smell of their own farts, I guess.
Browsing through DUh is like walking through an adult book store. You look straight ahead, don’t touch anything and try to forget why your shoes are sticking to the floor.
You can't post what you don't have.
Absolutely. Did you happen to hear Rush’s last caller? He (a Palin critic; self describer “Independent”) claimed Palin “couldn’t put two sentences together”.
Now, if you don’t give a crap about verifiable reality, there are a dozen or so (mostly scurrilous) things you could say about SP, but of all those things, the thing you cannot say if your senses give you even moderately accurate information is that she is not articulate. As Rush said “She hasn’t stuttered even a single time during her appearances!” And yet this guy made this statement.
I admire Rush greatly not just for his history; but for his uncanny ability to crystallize conservative thought so concisely; his great sense of ironic humor; and I admire his relentless politeness in listening to and generally hearing out callers no matter their position(s). In this case, he asked the caller to repeat himself so that the whole country could see what an idiot comment he was making.
If you listened to Obama give enough off the cuff speeches, you would uhh, uhh, and, well, uhh... what was I uhh, talking about...?
