Hey you!  The Kossack with the glazed-over eyes!  You've been reading too many thoughtful analyses of the Lamont victory - you're brain's about to shut down!

What you need is some comic relief, and I know just where to find some.  Come with me, if you will, down a special side tube that connects the restroom facilities in the Cave of the Moonbat with its Freeperland septic tank.  Let's see what our knuckle-dragging troglodyte cousins have to say in reaction to Joe's loss of mentum...

First, some terminology for those who might not be familiar with Republidoublespeak:


  •     Moonbat - their word for us; intended to be derisive

  •     Joementum - same meaning(s); may refer to the man himself, or his misunderstanding of electoral physics

  •     Freshmaker - Ned Lamont; Markos' commercial really got under their skin

  •     Loserman - see "Joementum"

  •     Kos Kids - us; several spellings possible

  •     MSM - mainstream media; also drive-by media (dittoheads), traditional media, legacy media
  • Those who have not spent time lurking near Rethug swill troughs should also note a few things about their lexicon (all errors of spelling, grammar, and punctuation are sic., of course):

    Sentences tend to be brief; these are men of few words, even when they write to themselves:

    To: Ciexyz

    My profound sympathies to Lieberman, that his own party pushed him aside like yesterday's dirt.

    The familiar "yesterday's dirt" analogy is only one of the many profound-sounding bloviations that one encounters in Freeperland.  To wit, note the sagacity on display here:

    To: psychopuppy

    The de-mokkker-rat party has been weighed in the scales and found wanting.

    Or here:

    To: psychopuppy

    The Democrat Party is now officially the party of cut and run cowards and traitors (of course, they were all along, but this just puts a sharper point on their pointy heads).

    But even in the lower realms of Freeperdom, one finds people casting pearls among the swine.  In the following example, one gets the distinct impression the typist is nearing full sentience - that with just a few more facts and a little bit more time, it might actually be able to enter the reality-based community someday:

    To: psychopuppy

    Lieberman's a sore loser, just like he was in 2000. You run in the primary. If you lose, tough darts. All he's proving here is that it's all about Joe. I hate the DEMs, but if they want a moonbat, they have every right to vote for one, and if Joe had any real class, he'd concede and move on. It's interesting the sense of entitlement that overcomes incumbents. They think once they've got the office, it's inconcievable that the peon voters might vote them out and pick someone else. Again, I hate the moonbats and Ned Lamont is an idiot, but Lieberman is being a sore loserman. He ran, he lost. Now he needs to get over it.

    Slightly higher up the food chain is RedState.com, where wingnuts can be observed in their natural habitat, trying as always to jam the world into their view of it:

    Lieberman is the next Zell                by Homunculus

    Jeffords isn't a good analogy. Like Zell, the crazy Dems have left Lieberman for the outer fringes of mainstream Marxism. The additional good news is that the Dems in the Senate, Slick W, Zowie Howie Dean, et al, ALL say they will support the Party nominee. But it appears Lieberman has a great shot at winning the general election with a coalition of his 48% of the Dems, a goodly number of Republicans (given the weak candidate they nominated) and lots of independents. This leaves Joe his own man, with no reason to caucus with the hacks who left him for the Dkos kindergarten.

    Lieberman may be more important to our side as an independent who votes with us most of the time. This could be a home run for us.

    For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. St. Paul

    Ever vigilant against our Marxist ambitions (I'm humming "The Internationale" as I write this), some of this type monitor our activities, just as our Beloved Leader directs us to monitor them:

    The Purge has begun                     by SteveLA

    Central Chairman Kos has spoken. Let the purge begin.

    "Joe Lieberman is not an independent Democrat. He needs to be stripped of his committee assignments and have those handed to real Democrats. And then we need to buckle down and finish the job we started."

    Lets see how long it takes the Children's Wing of the Democratic Party to show how truly wonderful things will be when they take power.

    Yeah, let's see, shall we?

    Over at Little Green Footballs, the consensus is that Lieberman will be such a strong independent challenge that the Dems are doomed forever, but one can still unearth some true gems:

    Of course the rich Dems in Conn like Lamont.
    He is richer than most of them. Grandpa worked for JP Morgan. He is old money.
    Scratch a rich lib and you get an aristocrat wannabe.

    So Lamonts victory speach atcually turned out to be a bad Monty Python remake.

    "Run Away! Run Away!

    (It was the killer bunny that attacked that other great democrat. Jimmah Carter. That was no ordinary bunny! That was a killer bunny!)

    Really, you should go back and read that last one again, and remember: this is what we are up against.

    Finally, witness their version of a troll hunter, who's going after a good guy that snuck onto a comment thread at Right Wing News:

    ><---wouldn't mind seeing Blow-with-the-polls-Joe shipping his dog and pony show off to the Repubs.

    You wouldn't mind giving a whole blue state to your enemies just to see a guy you don't like leave your party?

    Well, yours IS the party that wouldn't mind destroying the entire Western civilization just to get back at Bush for "stealing" elections.

    I'm kinda bummed that this last one has seen through all of the KosKoolAid deceptions emanating from Great Chairman and has truly discerned what we are all about.  George W. Bush steals an election, we work to destroy the entirety of Western civilization - it all makes perfect sense...wonder why I didn't see it before?

    More Tagging tips:

    A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

    Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

    If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

    Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

    Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
