An excellent puma blog, Autographed Letter Signed, has an exquisite new post, detailing the exact same sense as this blog has experienced over the last two years. Namely, stunned exasperation at the media’s role during the recent election cycle, and heartache at the way Democrats turned against the Clintons, Hillary specially.
As painful as all of that recapitulation is, this post by Kathy Barkulis is a must read. It’s simply, Pure Puma.
Why do I post it here? Well, turns out Barkulis is the same person as the lady we saw during the CNN-Tax Tea Party confrontation video. Who knew?
When I finished reading that post, and only then found out that the author was that same person as in the video below, believe me, it was a deja vu moment, a Harriet Christian moment, if you will. That, is not too surprising either, as it was exactly a year ago that that lady burst on the scene, and won herself over as the original she-puma.
Do go and read the post. Click on the image.
Original Post Begins Here:
All Pumas know what sort of perfidy the media is capable of. For well over an year, we watched Hillary being savaged, Sarah being maligned mercilessly, candidate BO being praised sky-high and then totally venerated. PUMAs are well-versed in the media dirty tricks, lack of conscience, misogyny, and virulent left-leaning talent.
Shutthefreudup was borne of such angst. During the ’08 campaign, the media bias was well documented in all pumasphere and here as well. See here, here, here. As noted here, Zombie wrote brilliantly about the meta game that went on during the longest presidential campaign ever!
Now, comes the Tea Party coverage. This video is just one reason why I gave up television two years ago, and am not likely to go back to it ever. The woman reporter virtually smears a whole movement as being as Nobamist, picks out the extreme nut job on view and totally ignores everyone else. She even mentions Fox, as a reason to devalue any citizen complaint, Nice!
To do anything activist nowadays is automatically directed agains the president, wow! What a change a couple hundred years have brought, too bad the King didn’t have access to CNN back during the Boston Tea Party days!!
Here is Rachel Maddow of some other network, she chortled endlessly over her own naughty thoughts.
Enough already! Giggles over tea bags? Sex and the City caused Carrie and us to blush about this one, delightfully enough, some SIX years ago!!
For crying out loud, Rachel, you really are late for this party.
The last word on the Media’s idiocy must go to the great Bob Somerby of Daily Howler, to wit:
For Maddow, Tuesday would be the fourth straight night of utterly juvenile dick jokes. (Last night’s program made five.) And so, a familiar dodge appeared. After treating us to a few quick dick jokes, Maddow pretended to explain why she’s been behaving this way: “I can’t help myself,” she said. Again, we ask our basic question: Has anyone on cable news ever been this disingenuous? [sic]
Sadly, this is becoming a standard feature of the Maddow Show. In this utterly bogus performance, “Sunday morning Rachel” appears, apologizing for the conduct of her “Saturday evening” alter ego. Her “admission,” of course, is utterly bogus—a juvenile way to have life both ways. As of last night, the prurient host has devoted five straight nights to long strings of “juvenile” dick jokes. On two of those nights, she has pretended that she is embarrassed by these conversations. On this third occasion, she pretends that she keeps doing these things because she can’t help herself.
But the news is a very important thing. A response to this nonsense writes itself:
Beyotch! If you can’t control the things you do, you need to get yourself off the air! Stop telling yourself that you’re a Rhodes Scholar. Go somewhere else. Get some help.
David Shuster went on a rampage of puns, double entendres, and glib Mattews-level sound and fury.
Even the highly talented baseball broadcaster Steve Stone couldn’t have reached this level of puns and wordplay!
Does any of this matter, it’s all politics, and of the moment only, right? Don’t we always move on to the next hot topic anyway? That, is exactly the point. For, lost in all of this is a sad, and bitter truth about the media and what it can bring about. Again, Daily Howler’s Bob Somerby:
All through the 1990s, liberals and progressives sat back and took it while Clinton, then Gore, were relentlessly savaged. (George Bush ended up in the White House.) Now, progressives sit back and take it again, as this pair of simpering chimps make a joke of “progressive” news programs.
For as long as we’ve been alive on this earth, sneering pseudos of this type have undermined progressive interests. Long ago, they helped elect Nixon. Rest assured: In their open contempt for average people, they’re hard at work on the project again.
If this post accomplishes just one thing, gets you to visit Daily Howler, and return to it often, then some good shall have been achieved. Keep howling, Bob!
A new wind is blowing across the land -, numerous little ripples are slowly coalescing – , tiny low rumblings that were just minor shudders are building into a large quake ….
You pick the analogy as suits your temperament. Let the poet in you chose element and the image. The sentiment is same.
The 18 million voters who chose Hillary are not about go aboutface!
Call it abiding love, unyielding affection; call it demand for respect, call it a plea to be heard; call it whatever, the simple truth is NO DEAL.
Hillary voters are here to stay, and BE COUNTED.
Point your browser to The Denver Group and bookmark it. It is going to be the place to watch.
Meanwhile, here is another lovely video that sings the same anthem:
NO DEAL: Join The Coalition of Millions
The millionwomanmarch website changed its name to 18millionvoices. Rise Hillary Rise.
So proclaims Geek Love, an ardent Hillary supporter. It is a matter of Izzat ka sawaal hai sort of situation for fans of Hillary. Indeed, it is A matter of honor. See, the lady much besmirched already is now vulnerable to pressure of unseemly weight. Another website proclaims with supreme confidence, We’ll Take it From Here Hillary!
In the advanced game of high office politics, debt is a four letter word. Hillary is in the red for about 25 million, give or take a couple. So the men are looking down their denz (DNC) noses and saying to her probably, fall in line or fall out of payments. This makes future steps tough to take ie. keep the nomination fight alive; get name placed on the ballot; halt the mad march toward obvious defeat in Nov. which is evident to every child in the political USA except the pompous power brokers at DNC. Indeed in one blog recently they were supposed to have said that ‘even if the election might be lost, the future would be bright with all the new young voters.’
This video is fun to watch, hope it motivates to contribute!Come A Long Way
There are still Hillary supporters around who will not give up, for whatever reason. We want Hillary to be our leader, fight for us, and lead us. We will follow her all the way to a convention floor fight, ballotting and so on. To show the world, we really believe in being democratic/Democratic. But debt is a very real issue.
You see, a firm stand by Hillary is not possible as long the sword of Damocles is hanging over her in the form of campaign debt. While Hillary has some money, it is set aside for a general election and is not usable for current debt. Campaign laws also restrict how much individual voters can give. If you have not given to Hillary before, now is the perfect time. Keep Hillary free and non-dependent!’
