We are on the verge of really screwing up a huge party the Republicans were planning on throwing for themselves this November.

I hope we succeed in ruining their party, which would have gone something like this:

The Invitation:

Republican Going Away Party This November! It’ll be a Blast!

Come one, come all to our fabulous going away / pity / hate PARTY this fall! Sure, we’re probably going down faster and harder than the Titanic, but we’re gonna go out with style! Everyone’s invited! Book your reservations early and join us! Fun Party Activities will include:

- Ronald Reagan masks for the first 100 arrivals!

- Everyone gets a free Stay Out Of My Village - Bitch T-Shirt!

- Prizes for the guest who comes closest to guessing the total number of lesbians Hillary has slept with in the past 12 months!

- Guest speaker topics include ‘Whitewater – what Ken Starr didn’t tell you!’ and ‘TravelGate – Worse for the USA than the Iraq War?’ Book early for these sure to be sold out lectures!

- A ‘Who Killed Vince Foster’ Murder Mystery Game! Was it Hillary? Was it Bill? You’ll love the surprise twist ending to this one (hint – it rhymes with ‘Planet Keno’)!

- Dennis Miller will perform his new hit comedy routine ‘The True Meaning of IS’!

- Jonah Goldberg will teach us all how the upcoming Clinton DoOver Presidency will be the road back to a fascist USA!

- Mary Matalin will perform LIVE her new hit country song ‘My Husband Is a Moran Who Gives Me Inside Dirt Fer Nothin And Supports Scooter For Free’! You’ll love this live performance with a special guest who’s in on the joke (some say he is the joke, if you know what we mean)!

- Free Admission (!) to all ladies who wear a blue dress!

- Can you TASTE the nostalgia? We knew you could!

Ah yes, our friends across the aisle were planning a huge going away bash, but something just might be happening to ruin their fun...

Special Announcement Regarding Our Fall 2008 Going Away Party!

Due to an unexpected possible change in the guest list, we are now planning our Going Away Party with two possible themes! You know the first one already, but just in case we have another great idea in store for you! No, you don’t need to cancel your tickets, just wait and see what we have planned as a possible (Dear Lord please don’t do this to us) Party Theme!!!:

- Our first annual ‘Obama – Osama’ dance night!

- A skit staring Rush Limbaugh and Alan Keyes as ‘Saddam’ and ‘Barack’ called ‘The Hussein Brothers Visit Manhattan’! LOLZ!

- Free Stylish Afro Wigs to the first 100 guests!

- And More!

Er, what’s that you say? You say your kids think you’re a complete tool for making fun of the Democratic Nominee for President just because he has a unique name? And they say you’re flirting with outright racism for some of the stupid crap you’re spouting? THEY are telling YOU to grow up? Hey, c’mon what do they know? It’s time to PARTAY! Partay like it’s 1999! C’mon, you know you wanna! Where’s everybody going? No, sorry – it’s too late for a refund. And besides, it’ll still be a fun party! Please. Please come to our party. Pretty please? Sigh.

----------------------

I know many think it’ll be like the 2000 election all over again regardless of our nominee. But really, it will be different. Much different. For one, there are far too many of us who know all their tricks and are ready to combat them from Day 1. For another, the scorched earth, trash the Clintons politics of old simply won’t work on our young voters today. Especially not against someone they essentially see as one of their own. I for one am confident that either nominee will win the Presidency in 2008. But only one of the two remaining competitors will ruin the Going Away Party the Republicans have been planning for years. I sure hope to see all those pre-ordered t-shirts go straight into the trash can. I know, I know – we need to recycle more but some things just belong in the dust bin of history.

Cheers.

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.

    Hateful diary

    How did I live without him?

  •  If a t-shirt read (5+ / 0-)

    "stay out of my village - N*****", I wonder if anyone would have a problem with that.

    Anytime you wonder about what is appropriate, just substitute another word that is currently unacceptable and see how that plays out.

    It is just plain wrong.  I am trying to raise a daughter.  And I am a woman.  I never used the "N" word, and I don't see why anyone would promote anything with the "B" word.

    Again, a word of advice:  You just may need us to vote for your candidate come November.  Abusing now and making apologies later may not work.

      Is a t-shirt those awful people at CPAC put out this week. Thus the link to Digby who pointed it out.

      Progress on our issues - the only thing that really matters.

      •  I understand. (0+ / 0-)

        But one problem with showcasing it here is that it is not frowned upon by many of the anti-Clinton/pro-Obama crowd.  In fact, it has been used without apology and in some cases with shocking aggression.  This site is overrun with people using attack words they would never use to someone's face out in public.

        Reading your other diaries, I understand you try to put the focus on getting republicans out (or put the pressure on those DINO's in congress that sell out to republicans so often) and I applaude your efforts.  Pulling the focus away from the candidate hate wars and putting it back on the ball game is so badly what this site needs and you help in that matter.  So, I wasn't trying to attack you but rather point out that it helps no one to get even more of this in any way, shape or form from republicans when we can't tell the difference from so many Obama supporters in regard to language used to attack Senator Clinton.

        Again, I didn't mean to attack you, just point out what I see as a problem.  I have appreciated some of your other diaries, though.

    I guess I missed the humor of this diary.

    My dogs think I'm smart and pretty.

    Your diary does sound a lot like what I've seen brewing on some Repub sites, and perhaps a preview of the crap they'll try to throw at our candidate. Too bad for them. They've partied at our expense for too long. It's past time to take our government back from the destroyers.
