Here’s the deal, remember Howard Dean? The democrat running for President who went ballistic and started screaming like he went bat shit crazy when he lost a primary, about how we “are going to South Carolina, and New Mexico and AUGHHHHHHHH!” Something to that effect.
Ok, according to the Post-Gazette, yesterday the Deanster was in town for a democratic fundraiser. A group of young Republicans decided to have fun with his visit and hosted a humourous protest of sorts (they weren’t the first, apparently some in South Carolina did it a while back too). So instead of being what is typically cast as the standard humorless, stodgy Republicans, they decided to make it lighthearted and have a contest to see who could best imitate the Deanster screaming.
Well lo and behold, who shows up but some totally humorless Democrats who, according to one of the Democrats, want to
talk about serious issues, like war, racism, poverty, reproductive rights.
Riiiiiiiiiiiight Miss Jules Bonnot, 21, of Bloomfield. Does lacking a single ounce of humor, swearing, calling the Republicans in the contest “racist” and “homophobic”, and ripping up their signs until the police told you to knock it off, all equate to “talk” in your universe? God.
Anyway, continuing on, after these Democrats calmed down a bit, my hero named Dan got up to resume the contest and began his turn in the contest by saying
Howard Dean is gay.
Bwah!!!!! I love it! (Edit: that “Bwah” is not addressing the word “gay”, it is addressing the huevos that Dan has to say that after being called a “homophobe” by the Dems.) That is one brave guy! Most awesome thing I’ve heard all week. Of course, after he said that he was immediately surrounded by these particular Democrats again, who obviously couldn’t find a sense of humor with a flashlight, maps, a compass, and GPS.
To me this is not a Republican/Democrat issue, this is a winners/losers issues. The Republicans come out the winners because they were just trying to have some fun with it, and the Democrats come out the losers, because guys? Get a life, find a sense of humor somewhere, and find other places and ways to “talk” about those issues that matter to you. Sheesh.
Dan? Call me! (Edit: Nat? Call me!)
