    Ah, memories. Wait, I think it’s the wayback machine calling…

    Why, it’s from LGF, the morning after the 2004 election!

    Good Morning America!! I finally feel like the Vietnam war has been won.! Glad I served and got called baby killer, spit on, and called a dope.. Its worth it to see the LEADER of the Communist effort in this country finally surrender.

    Well, I’m glad “BingoBunny” could clear that up for us. I guess there’s nothing left for us this morning other than…

    My favorite:

    I quite. I not going to vote again.

    Of course, he probably meant to say, “Me not going to vote again,” but anyone can make a mistake when traversing the series of tubes.

    Beware! There’s only one thing more dangerous than crazy people who are winning, and that’s crazy people who are losing.

    I think this one’s my favorite. Clearly, it works with children:

    “Islam must have a boot smashing into its face forever until it becomes a grown up religion not bent on murdering everyone on the planet…”

    It’s actually a bit creepy if you go to that thread and see all the people sanctimoniously saying how sorry they’ll feel for all the coastal liberals who’ll get vaporized in the terrorist attack that’s sure to come now that they can’t, I guess, cut any more taxes.

  6. says

    In a just world, that guy who called for a military coup would get picked up and charged with treason. Or maybe not tried at all, but just held in a secret detention center with no charges, no access to family or counsel, etc. Talk about karma biting you on the ass.

    LGF comment 1255:

    No amount of appeasement will work. Their genocidal bloodlust is without limit.

    [We must] Decimate and take the oil from the Iraqi South. Stand ready at a moment’s notice to do something similar in Iran.

    Is projecting a standard MO for these folk?

  8. rrt says

    I do love the fact that any future terrorist attack will instantly be liberals’ fault because we wouldn’t let the LGF crowd wipe out half the Middle East.

    It is their standard MO. They are gutless and want to wage a holy war. They just want to do it from the comfort of their basement while eating Cheetos and getting orange dust all over their keyboards.

    How many of the LGF crowd signed up to serve? Or encouraged their kids to enlist in their
    Holy Oil War?

  10. David Harmon says

    Markus: “Is projecting a standard MO for these folk?”

    YES! In fact, it’s probably their second-most popular psychological defense, right after “binary thinking”.

    Read the Ap story on the election and feel even better.

    Democrats defeated Republican Sens. Rick Santorum in Pennsylvania, Mike DeWine in Ohio, Jim Talent in Missouri and Lincoln Chafee in Rhode Island — four lawmakers who covered the spectrum from conservative to moderate.

    But they came up short in Tennessee as Republican Bob Corker won a hotly contested race, defeating Rep. Harold Ford (news, bio, voting record). Jr., who had hoped to become the first Southern black senator since Reconstruction.

    Burns, seeking a fourth term, trailed Democrat Jon Tester. Allen trailed his Democratic challenger, Jim Webb, by a few thousand votes, with a strong likelihood of a recount.

    Indiana was particularly cruel to House Republicans. Reps. John Hostettler, Chris Chocola and Mike Sodrel all lost in a state where Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels’ unpopularity compounded the dissatisfaction with Bush.

    Republican Rep. Nancy Johnson (news, bio, voting record) lost in her bid for a 13th term in Connecticut; Anne Northup fell in Kentucky after 10 years in the House; Rep. Charles Taylor (news, bio, voting record) was defeated in North Carolina.

    One of the biggest surprises of the night was Republican Rep. Jim Leach (news, bio, voting record)’s defeat in Iowa after a career that spanned 30 years. He lost to Dave Loebsack, a college professor making his first run for elective office. The two parties spent lavishly on television commercials in dozens of districts deemed competitive — but not that one.

    Scandal took an undeniable toll on the Republicans. Democrat Zack Space won the race to succeed Bob Ney, who pleaded guilty to corruption this fall in the Jack Abramoff scandal. Republican Rep. John Sweeney (news, bio, voting record) lost his seat in New York several days after reports that he had roughed up his wife — an allegation she denied. Republicans also lost the seat that Rep. Mark Foley (news, bio, voting record) had held. He resigned on Sept. 29 after being confronted with sexually explicit computer messages he had written to teenage pages.

    Rep. Don Sherwood (news, bio, voting record) lost despite apologizing to the voters for a long-term affair with a much younger woman; and Rep. Curt Weldon (news, bio, voting record), also from Pennsylvania, was denied a new term after he became embroiled in a corruption investigation.

    The GOP also lost the Texas seat once held by former Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

  12. Baratos says

    If voting becomes a priviledge rather than a right, the first people I want to keep from voting are those fundies. Its my idea of justice–if you are going to take away the rights of another group, be prepared to lose those rights yourself.

  13. Nix says

    Whenever I get dragged to LGF (by e.g. some thoughtless bastard linking to it) I stare at it in horror for a while before deciding that it’s actually a parody.

    A shame it’s not a very good one. They over-egged the pudding so drastically… nobody in a civilized country could be *that* insane without receiving psychological care (probably institutionalization would be called for: these people clearly aren’t capable of reasoning or functioning as adults).

  14. Rey Fox says

    “I think this demostrates pretty clearly that voting should be a privilege, NOT a right.”

    Couldn’t agree more. Let’s start by taking the vote away from anyone who still thinks Saddam and Iraq were behind 9-11.

    If so, ‘this nation’ might benefit from some change …

    On the other hand there are a good number of unsaved Republicans and Democrats in there too, people who do not have God’s interests at heart. In some ways they are even more a danger to this nation than this guy.

    As described by the Bible, ‘God’s interests’ appear to be dominating women, controlling other people’s sex lives, mass murder, egotism, …
    People who do not have those interests at heart are ‘a danger to this nation’?
