    not too bright:

    But why the hell do you hilbots equate a political movement with a cult. Did anyone do that with FDR or JFK? Don't you know that it makes you look like the biggest douche bags on the planet?

    Stupid and assholish is no way to go through life.

      I have never once bashed a supporter of any candidate because they believed in their candidates message. I'll go after the candidate first. But Hillary supporters on this and other sites have started attacking not just the positive message of the Obama campaign but they are also going after supporters that believe in that message. First it was about style over substance until the hilbots were directed to his website where they learned he has substance and then some. And I'll remind you that when he first entered the race people accused him of being too scholarly equating him to Kerry. He speaks of hope because we need hope. He speaks of change because we desperately need change. And he can back it up with responsible policies and commitments to the American people. So what's left to attack? Hillary supporters are now trying to create the Cult of Obama. It's a POLITICAL MOVEMENT! I'm anythng but stupid and assholish, but I will treat people the way they deserve to be treated and if hilbots keep posting bullshit diaries that make groundless assertions like this one did, then I will hit back. Sorry if you feel I lumped you in there with what seems to be every other hilbot on this site.

        I support Obama. I defend others when warrented. Calling people Hillbots is no different than calling Obama supporters cultists.

        And trust me, as someone who has defended Hillary I have been attacked viciously by many of te Obama folks. Including the accusation of racism on more than one occasion. There are complete and utter assholes on both sides.

          And their is a huge difference between Hilbot and Cult member. Hilbot is funny. I wish we were Obamabots. It's cute. But cult member? Come on, Mike, you can't seriously think that being called a cultist by people that don't see their own destructive inevitability is the same thing? I don't. Why defend people that would just as soon throw you under the bus? I'm not for attacking people without good reason and when the dust settles we're all still democrats. But, cultists?

          cult n.
          1.
          a. A religion or religious sect generally considered to be extremist or false, with its followers often living in an unconventional manner under the guidance of an authoritarian, charismatic leader.

          Cult goes to far and is not the same as hilbot. I was quite when everyone was ganging up on Obama for having no substance. I did not take part in the anti-hillary hit diaries. But "cult" is going too far. And I don't have to take it lying down.

            I just can't believe that I have to point this out.

            Of course you think it's funny. They think calling Obama supporters cultists is funny too. What none of you jackasses seem to get is that both sides of this are more like Republicans than Democrats.

              Cultist and a nickname. How can you not? Cultist has a particular meaning. Hilbot is made up. David Koresh is not funny. David Hilbot is.

              Well not funny really, but Hilbots never get people killed. Cultists do. I get your point. You feel that a pile of shit would be just as sour by any disparaging name. I think it's a matter of degrees and calling me a cultist is going to far. I do get your point, you don't get mine. It really doesn't matter anyway, we'll all be Obamabots soon enough.
