Just Words?

The Future

The primary season of 2008 will perhaps be best remembered for  ‘just words’ and ‘change we can xerox’.

For Hillary supporters it has been a long struggle in self-expression.  In elections past the editorial edicts and the cartoonist’s snarks might have gone unchallenged, but this season Hillary’s supporters struck back early and often with a variety of  visuals, iconic bits of imagery and  great graphic shorthand.  Week after week the primary season produced graphics for and by bloggers. Voices that  were denied and downplayed by the MSM found expression visually in blogs.

 Here is a sampling of graphics , with a semblance of evolutionary sequence. At the top of the page, the mother of all images, our undying vision: Our Lady on Air Force One.  

Instead of scrolling down, you can go to this page and view the graphics as a slideshow!

Did you use any of these? Which one resonated most with you and why?  Were any left out of here?  Your comments are welcome.

                                                   

null An early adoptee was this lovely b&w pic of HRC used in a number of diaries, graced in later months with an edgy slogan. This was back when being a Democrat meant something else. Call it the early ‘days of innocence’ and of faith in the party.

 

 

 

 

Thanks to you, the Hillcar is going to Pennsylvania!      From the creative genius of Hillary Clinton Army came this bright spot, it could be seen wherever  a little gasoline donation could take it.  Like that nursery rhyme, everywhere that Hillary went, the Hillcar was sure to go..

 

 

 

 

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting                Rest assured, we are not an advertisement. But this pic has been around the internet in various forms and it’s eloquent. I liked the clever overlay of zero and Venus symbol.

 

 

 

 

Bitch is the New Black Sticker (Bumper)           

     When the MSM went crazy with Hillary derangement, we all remember how electrifying that skit on SNL was. Well, someone quickly capitalized on Tina Fey’s great line, yea baby. America is great or what!

 

 

 

    Heidi Li Feldman  posted this photo of elemental beauty and strength, and it soon found it’s way into the hearts of Hillary’s supporters. The raised hand, the rain drops, and the sheer determination spoke volumes. The image conveyed strength, it dazzled and stirred the blog writers. The caption on Feldman’s page, ‘Got Moxie’ boosted this pic into an emblematic place in a hundred different Hill blogs. It established itself as a principal symbol of what it came to believe in Hillary. One commenter at Taylor Marsh suggested using Blondie’s Tide is High as a campaign anthem. It certainly presaged a flood of Hillary’s victories, including landslide ones in WV, KY, PR.   For millions of blog viewers, this then was the image that sang the High Cantata, not just words indeed!

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 Taylor Marsh got everybody agog with this graphic up on her site for weeks as the controversy raged about the seating of Michigan and Florida delegates. Throughout Spring 2008,  angry, aggrieved Hill fans wore this as the badge of infamy. To DNC’s everlasting discomfort, discussions surrounding this isssue evoked a host of responses, including memories of McGovern, 1972, Gore v Bush, 2000 SCOTUS decision etc. Few flag depictiions moved so many as this one….

 

And quickly led to a number of other images to be created.

appu By June 2008, it was obvious the DNC had all along known the fix to be in. Even the pretense of trying to act principled was given up. It was apparent to ardent Hillary supporters, the base Democrats, that they were really expected to ‘stay home’.  Politics not just as usual, but most primeval and extreme form of considerations took priority.  McCain buttons were already becoming popular among Hill-crats.  The Green Mountain Forum  featured this Appeasement University. Quite witty.

 

 

     By the time Harriet Christian was caught on tape by Jane Hamsher of FiredogLake, it was already too late. Opinions had crystallised. The raspy, anguished gravel-tone of Harriet simply spoke aloud what had been graphically tattoed across the blogosphere for months now. Those who voted for HIllary  were becoming increasingly protective, praetorian and proud. In the face of left blogs and MSM that was dismissive of her,  and a culture that seemed to permit it all, Hill fans were forced to becoming partisan.

HARDENING OF ATTITUDES IN FAVOUR OF HILLARY AND AGAINST THE OTHER CANDIDATE HAD BEEN DEVELOPING FOR  A WHILE, BEFORE THE NEGATIVE IMAGES SPRUNG UP.
AND FINALLY, WHEN THE RBC/DNC FINALLY COMMITTED WHAT WAS SEEN AS PERFIDY.
THE PUMAS WERE BORN

MANOLO BLAHNIKS cried out in joy when these ladies stepped out in lock-step for Hillary in one of the ‘sexiest Hillary blogs in the city’. The Hire Heels are writers well heeled and highly schooled. A must visit website even for the shoe-less joes amongst you. The writings here rollick as much as the graphics do. Designers not just of shoes could weep over the designs of imagination here. This gal here, being urged to not splurge on shoes but bail  ‘our gal’ out of debt, is a graphic that tugs at the coldest fashionista. Who ever started the rumour that the ‘creative class’ was on the other foot?

 

 


                       

 And now look at this biological miracle, a whole group of Pumas gave birth to a Phoenix!

  • Slaying Salmon July 15, 2014
    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]
  • #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe February 13, 2013
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

  • Disgusting Joss Whedon Insinuates in Tweet That Paul Ryan Is a Pedophile April 28, 2017
    The pathetic behavior of action movie director Joss Whedon has been well documented here on NewsBusters, but his tweet on Thursday might be his worst one yet. In a Thursday evening tweet to his 178,000 followers, he used a picture of House Speaker Paul Ryan meeting young women at the U.S. Capitol to suggest Ryan’s a raging pedophile.

  • The Conservative Media Meets Trump April 27, 2017
    President Trump did something Monday I have long advocated. He met with a small group of conservative journalists, pundits and radio talk show hosts. I was among them. After ticking off a list of what he said were his accomplishments leading up to the arbitrary 100-day marker of his presidency, we asked him questions.

    WASHINGTON — We call it Kultursmog, "it" being that collection of attitudes, ideas, tastes and personages that are polluted by the politics of the left and predominate on both coasts. And who are we? We are the freethinkers who are immune to the Kultursmog by virtue of our natural skepticism and reliance on empiricism, which is to say, reliance on […]

  • Ross Douthat Goes Off NYT Reservation with Faint Trump Praise April 27, 2017
    The New York Times version of political diversity is that even if you are a scorned "conservative" you can still be tolerated on their pages but ONLY if you are resolutely anti-Trump. A supposed conservative was recently hired by the Times but read this description about him in the very first sentence of this April 12 Politico story:

  • National Press Ignoring Portland, Ore. Parade Cancellation After Violent Threats Against GOP Marchers April 27, 2017
    A development has occurred which should erase any doubt that basic freedoms are in serious jeopardy in much of blue-state America. It is at least as disturbing as the failure of the University of California at Berkeley and the Berkeley Police Department to provide for the safety of conservative Ann Coulter, leading to the cancellation of her planned appearan […]
