Before I depart for an extended sleeping session, me being a sleep-loving kind of gal, a few things:
(1) I’m most certainly not the brightest star in the sky (I need a calculator to add 57 + 8 … I’m not kidding), but with the kind assistance of WordPress’s troll-detecting devices I can, with a single click, figure out who’s being a silly billy.
So, to the people trying to post stuff like:
“I’m a long-time lurker and a passionate supporter of President Obama, but ……”
….. you do know you’re logged here already under, oooooooh, several different names? Each one of them expressing no support at all for PBO, just grave ‘concerns’.
Three words: Must. Try. Harder.
eg ‘Legend of Eldorado’ …. you attempted to post your “first” comment yesterday, which was a personal attack on a regular here …. unaware that WordPress’s James Bond-ish troll-detecting devices showed it was about your 10th attempt, under as many names, to post your “first” comment.
(2) To those who claimed to be “long time lurkers” and “HUGE” PBO supporters, who chose to finally emerge from their lurkdom yesterday to complain about me shrubbing that pathetic excuse of a man, GWB, I say:
Give me a f**king break!
Seriously, are you kidding me? Absolutely none of the treatment dished out to President Obama over the last three and a half years stirred your juices enough to leave lurkdom and comment in his support …. but an irreverent post about the turd that is Bush energized you?
You know, methinks that says a whole lot more about you than it does about me.
Passionate PBO supporters? Thanks for the laughs.
If you don’t like how things are done here, then click elsewhere – okay? It’s not Blog.gov, so to those ordering me to remove the shrubs from Scumbag Bush’s face, I bare my buttocks in your direction. And trust me, they’re not a pretty sight.
Again, if you don’t like the blog’s disrespectful ‘tone’ towards that contemptible piece of crap, who stole his second term and started an illegal war that cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocents, then maybe you need to tune in to GeorgeRocks.com ….. trust me, this place will never be for you. And NO apologies – ever.
(3) To the good folk who’ve attempted to post here for the first time the last few days, there’s a shiny new policy (I’ll update the ‘How Do I Comment Here?’ page asap): no newcomers will be accepted between now and November unless they sign up with longstanding Twitter/Facebook/WordPress accounts that show they’re PBO supporters and not dim-witted Willard-worshipping twats. I have neither the time nor the desire to weed out the trolls.
(4) Today was, maybe, the worst of days. Shitty, crappy, etc. And there’ll be a whole heap of days just like it between now and November.
So, we have two choices:
(a) Give up. Curl up in a ball and die, and prepare for Willard’s inauguration.
(b) Take a deep breath, have a gin or three, dust ourselves down, have a good night’s sleep, wake up, and vow to fight back even harder.
I go for (b).
Are you in?
Myra Soukup is, and that’ll do for me:
