First, there was this diary, in which the diarist tries to distinguish between legitimate concern and trollish concern. The diarist also asked for a soup recipe, and got one--the person who gave it to him got HR'd for, I suppose, the appearance of calling the diarist a troll by posting the recipe. Or something like that.
Then, there was this diary about getting HR'd for giving someone what they asked for. Namely, a recipe.
So I got to thinking. Posting recipes and pictures of cats used to be the way folks responded to trollish diaries years ago on Daily Kos. Some still do, but the tradition has faded as we have grown and evolved. A while back, I posted my original "This Is A Troll Diary" with the express purpose of talking about the tradition and also--selfishly, I'll admit--the purpose of swelling my collection of good recipes.
So, what better time to post Troll Diary Number Two? In the comments, I welcome recipes, but also discussion about Daily Kos culture--stuff past and present, stuff that's changed, stuff we used to do and don't anymore, and stuff we like and don't like, miss and don't miss about how we were, where we are, and where we're going.
But first, after the divider-doodle, the troll diary itself...
Why Obama Is Going To Lose
President Obama thoroughly let down his base last Wednesday with his intentional sabotage of the Presidential Debate because secretly, he hates America. Because of his Kenyan anti-colonialist tendencies instilled in him by his Muslim father (it's true because Dinesh D'Souza says so), he is out to destroy America by losing to Mitt Romney. Republicans are wrong about his being a socialist though. He's really in league with big banks and the 99 percent. He's also a self-loathing racist who keeps African Americans and poor minorities fettered by government handouts, especially processed cheese food. Secretly, he eats lobster every night while watching the O'Reilly Factor and reading The National Review.
President Obama is going to lose because the American people are smart enough to know that he's a horrible Democrat, a milquetoast Socialist, and a very bad Republican wannabe. He's a total failure. He dreams of going back to Kenya and exploiting natural resources and getting huge speaking fees like President Clinton and travelling to Venezuela to do ribbon cuttings at schools named after Lenin and Castro.
President Obama is going to lose because I didn't get my pony, the GOP got theirs but strapped it to an AMC Gremlin, and because it would make the pundits happy because their contracts would be renewed for another four years.
President Obama is going to lose because I say so.
