President Barack Hussein Obama: VICTORY LAP (of REVENGE) nsfw

the nerds win always and forever. period. go back to alaska--jocks.

Dear Tacoma,

Over the last few years my enemies have tormented me to no end with their vicious partisan politics and backwards hill-billy beliefs.   Now that the shoe is on the other hand, it is finally my HOUR for REVENGE!   

How do you like those apples?  REVENGE APPLES, T-TOWN STYLE!

lets begin...

all the haters haunting the News Tribune community/comment thing    FU!

Dino Rossi....   FU! 

Building Industry Association of Washington....   big FU!

the dudes running that Uncle Sam sign on I-5,  FU!

professional initiative quack Tim Eyman....   FU.

5views.com     FU. 

Alaskan Governor Sara Palin, FU 

during McCain's concession speech, as I pressed my face to the television I imagined her tears to taste like sweet sweet candy.  Yes you are not the chosen one.  Your prayers have fallen on deaf ears.  Your god has forsaken you.    ha ha ha ( ho. ha ha ho)!

my friend Mofo from the Hood,    MoFU ! 

to all the great thinkers of the internet, my contemporaries in the red internet political cartooning spectrum...   and the all encompassing kingdom of those, my enemies,  i have forgotten:

I thought I was happy after the end of this election cycle. Let it all out man, it's not healthy to bottle that stuff up.

Too bad about Hill though.

One wonders what kind of pornographic video was worthy of presentation at the campaign headquarters on election night in commemoration of his historic run at the office of Pierce County Sheriff.

Nailin' Palin?

Mr. Anderson, I've always admired your misguided imagination and tenacity.

Peace be with you.

I too feel the need for gloating and retribution, but when Obama said " I may not have earned your vote, but I've heard your voice and I'm your president too" all my feelings of wanting to shove his win in the face of conservatives fell away.

I think this really is a new time, I really think we can all work together. This is an extraordinary time, the economy is in the crapper, we have two wars and now we have this new leadership. I have hope.

Although I did comment on 5 views with a big Ha so I'm still a little gloaty ( yes I know that's not a word).

Obama is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, G.I's---Government Issue citizens. Is he the Commander in Chief of private citizens?

Secondly, in order for private citizens to make wise choices, it is necessary to have the right of free assembly and freedom of speech which will include the exchange of true information.

Lastly, FeedTacoma is my favorite public service sight. I haven't personally experienced any censorship here (that I know of) although I understand that such measures could be performed.

I have experienced censorship on another Tacoma site many times for politcal views derived from public school textbooks.

interesting observation...

NP - Jesse Hill 29,731 20.65%

- - -

"executive excellence" - Mike Lonergan 23,894 14.65%


I sincerely hope that the next time THE TRAVELLER presents himself at the CITIZENS FORUM he points out he got more votes than Mike Lonergan. That's got to sting a little i'm betting.

* * * SPOILER ALERT * * *
tangent: "Mofo from the Hood" and Mike Lonergan are the same person
* * * * *

even so, to answer your question about the 'pornographic film' described by Electric Elliot in his adventures documenting Mr. Hill's campaign headquarters... it's important to consider that Electric Elliot in his ultra-orthodox conservative world view that any film depicting a woman dressed sans Burqa is considered 'pornographic'

I suspect they were watching the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice

Ahhh. . . gotcha. Still, that's a mistake anyone could have made. Those come hither stares of Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle lead one to believe the down and dirty action could start at any moment.

by Mofo from the Hood on 11/6/2008 @ 9:58pm
Lonergan's vote tally was somewhat predictable based on my work-in-progress theory of common sense. I start with this existential question: In the course of my day, on any given week, in any given month, over any given year: about what percentage of my actions make sense to onlookers inhabiting or passing through my reality? That is to say, do my actions correspond to reality in terms sensical or nonsensical typical actions of other people? What percentage of onlookers identify with and accept my idiosyncracies within the temporal and spacial coordinates as specified?

I can start my experiment with one solid assumption, if not absolute truth. I have a 50/50 chance that my actions will be identified and accepted as sensical by a random onlooker. That is assuming that 50% of onlookers is sensical and 50% of onlookers are nonsensical. The goal of synchrony between myself and a random onlooker or a plural contingent is proportionally more probable as temporal and spacial parameters expand outwards from a desired axis mundi.

But the aim of this exercise is to reconcile the theoretical and practical implications of the experiment toward a time-sensitive application. The difficulty of coordinating and directing a highly plastic contingent of synchronal onlookers to a voting booth becomes apparent when one factors in all possible distractions, enticing or otherwise.

Well, sorry, time is up for this session.

Anonymous attacks, claims follow Palin home
By Sean Cockerham / Anchorage Daily News
Friday, November 7, 2008 - Updated 1m ago

Gov. Sarah Palin, the day after coming back to Alaska from her two-month run for vice president, was sorting through which clothes to send back while under attack from anonymous John McCain staffers in a frenzy of finger-pointing.

"It’s a circling firing squad," said Meg Stapleton, who is under contract as the governor’s campaign spokesman for the next week.

The anonymously sourced salvos are being launched in media including Newsweek, Fox News and The New York Times [NYT]. The claims include that Palin didn’t know Africa is a continent, went on shopping sprees on the Republican Party’s dime, and threw tantrums that left staff in tears. Palin supporters said it’s just people trying to scapegoat the governor for the unsuccessful presidential campaign.


"It’s really amazing, I think it’s unprecedented in terms of presidential politics to have this level of vindictiveness and pettiness. It’s like these people fell out of favor with a middle school 14-year-old girls’ clique. It’s really unbelievable," Scheunemann said.

by fredo on 11/8/2008 @ 10:25am
I'll start out by mentioning that I voted for Obama. He was the best choice this year.

Obama's strong showing was at least partially attributable to his high interest in working with and for all Americans. He had an unwavering allegiance to working in a bi-partisan manner if elected. President Bush has offered to assist in a seamless transition of power. McCain made a beautiful concession speech and requested that the country unite behind the new president-elect.

Here's the question I have. Why have so many feed Tacoma bloggers, who obstensibly support Obama and his positions, gone so negative on the Republicans? If you want people to be gracious in defeat, you must be gracious in victory.

by NineInchNachos on 11/8/2008 @ 11:16am
sure being gracious is the way to go, but how many humorous rabble rousing forum posts can you distill from high-brow ethical behavior?

by fredo on 11/8/2008 @ 11:26am
Mr. Nachos@ A good point. OTOH, I thought the ironic disconnect between between Obama's message of reconciliation and Obama's feedTacoma "supporters" nastiness was worth noting.

Thanks for the great photo of another Fredo!

by chrism39 on 11/8/2008 @ 11:46am
You are right Fredo.

by marumaruyopparai on 11/8/2008 @ 6:43pm

Obama's talk of reconciliation and bridging the gap between the left and the right is necessary for political expediance. As for the rest of us who are responsible only for voting as we see fit and hoping that our choice best represents us in office, we can gloat as much as we want. Do you really think the "kill 'em with kindness" approach will make any difference to the portion of the electorate that still thinks Obama is an arab, commi, terrorist? I don't think so, I see no reason or benefit to taking the high road here. If it feels good to let it all out, let it all out. The onus is on Obama to rally any non-believers behind him through sane and competent governance.

Frankly, I don't want to live in a society that isn't angry after the last eight years of administration. After eight years of arguably one of the worst administrations I think this country has seen the best the republican party can come up with following a tough loss is Sarah Palin in 2012, really??? Sarah Palin?? The republican base would elect 'dog poo in a jar' for president of the United States of America if they were confident the dog poo was vehemently against gay rights and abortion and would place conservative judges on the Supreme Court bench. The fact that they were willing to rally behind McCain is proof of that. The conservative base HATES McCain, but all he had to do was say the magic words: pro-life and no gay marriage and pick an emotionally unbalanced conservative religious zealot from the Alaskan tundra as his running mate and all was forgiven (up until the point that he lost, now the conservative pundits hate him again)

And given all the shit talking that's taken place during the Bush administration while he was in office, it only makes perfect sense that the dam holding back people's real feelings would break after said administration is finally removed.

by marumaruyopparai on 11/8/2008 @ 6:49pm
I'll finish by saying that I don't think RR has gone negative on republicans here. For anyone who's been paying attention to RR's blogging, cartooning and commenting record when it comes to republicans, this post seems pretty run-of-the-mill standard.

by NineInchNachos on 11/8/2008 @ 7:49pm
good talking points marumaruyopparai,

however i'm not just out to get republicans... I think there are good republicans and bad republicans just like I think there are good democrats and bad democrats.

I attack people on the basis of content of character not by the color of party affiliation.

McCain is not completely evil. When he curtly pulled the microphone from the retarded hillbilly woman who said obama 'is you know, an arab' I thought that was commendable.

MEANWHILE: Palin is a nazi and should try reading some god damn books instead of firing librarians.

by Mofo from the Hood on 11/8/2008 @ 8:13pm
This past election season would have been far more interesting if the Democrats would have chosen as their candidate Born Again Christian President Jimmy Carter. That would have been a fair fight against McCain.

Mr. Obama is a former professor of constitutional law. If he wanted to, he could really F-up the country with ass-backward laws that have no rational basis. We all know that this country is filled with a gruesome assortment of folks that insist on laws to force taxpayers to fund their kinky lives and deaths.

Mr. Obama is in a position now to offer sober leadership to sober Americans. As for America's gruesome sector, they may likely skitter back into the shadows if forced to face the light of reason.

by marumaruyopparai on 11/8/2008 @ 8:33pm

Those are more than talking points RR, that's how I feel after this very contentious election. My underlying point is that there are angry, judgemental people on just about any side of a political issue that you can think of, and that goes double for the presidency in the current political climate. The republicans can take care of themselves, a little gloating won't hurt anyone.

I never said McCain was evil, I simply noted that all he had to do was stick to very simple core issues and choose a lunatic for a running mate in order to rally a large portion of his base (the portion that prior to him winning the republican nomination HATED him and his politics). I think McCain did what he felt he had to do, not what he wanted. It backfired. I'm not a banner waving Obama supporter either, but I felt he was a good alternative to a politician who I feel sold out alot of his values for political viability and I think he also will give minority voters who feel disenfranchised a feeling that they're every bit on the same tier as everyone else in this country. And then given the retarded two-party political system we live in, third party politics were not even a consideration this cycle.

I agree completely that you're an equal opportunity offender and don't think I implied otherwise. I simply intended to make note of the fact there are certain hard-line ultra conservative elements within the republican party in this country and of course in Tacoma that you have unabashedly taken issue with. Considering that fredo was refering to the 'losing' party in the wake of this election that was being treated unfairly by more liberal voters, that was the party I made reference to.

Liberals are venting after eight years of Bush, big f'n deal, they've earned it.

by NineInchNachos on 11/8/2008 @ 10:24pm
just finished watching the new errol morris documentary STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE and my rage levels are nicely replenished.

Bush will go down in history as the Torture President.

I'm hoping Obama will come out with something more positive.

Jimmy Carter is a nuclear scientist. Science always wins in the end.

by fredo on 11/8/2008 @ 10:43pm
If the Democrat party had done a better job motivating their constituency in 2000 and 2004 we wouldn't have had to suffer 8 years of Bush so I guess we could blame the democrats for the current situation.

For the record my critisim of the post election posturing was not in reference to anything RR had to offer. The negative comments are to be found on various discussion postings and by various commenters. By all means, go ahead and gloat but ...that's not Obama's style.

by marumaruyopparai on 11/8/2008 @ 10:49pm

Nah, gloating is not my style either. And I'm not criticizing your criticism of those who do. I just felt compelled to rationalize and defend the anger and gloating because I feel there's some validity to it. After Bush's back to back terms so many liberals had such a huge hardon to finally get a liberal in the White House that I regard the gloating as completely inevitable.

I was just picking RR out as the most immediate and obvious example.

by NineInchNachos on 11/8/2008 @ 10:54pm
yeah you know you're on the right track when you get libraries named after you. If only the American Auto Industry was as far sighted as a peanut farmer...

non-gloating is a good presidential trait

can we all agree to that?

by marumaruyopparai on 11/8/2008 @ 11:15pm
Well. . . okay, but just this one time. Then I'm back to contentious disagreement for disagreement's sake. . .
