Lemme have it. I've probably got it coming.
Posted by Jim Treacher at November 6, 2008 01:19 PM
I am counting down until the first media comparison of Russia turning missiles on Poland as Obama's Cuban Missile Crisis.
As a fellow NUMBskull, I'd like to say thank you for keeping it real, for standing by Palin (who is and always will be AWESOME), for honoring McCain, and for pointing out the BS that is still streaming from the media's bowels on a regular basis.
I hope we survive our dear leader's reign. I am expecting word any minute now that dissent will hereafter be considered a hate crime.
I appreciate what you're doing here. Keep it up.
Your mom wears combat boots to breakfast.
Chill, I think you've been getting too caught up in internet world. Neither Obama nor America are turning toward socialism. If I'm wrong I'll take your first shift at the collective farm.
You have done great work since I've been reading you the past few months. Hopefully, you won't be sent to the re-education camp too soon.
Now keep it up, ya silly NUMBskull!
Looking forward to meeting you at re-education camp!
...this one time, at re-education camp...
"Lemme have it. I've probably got it coming."
Probably? I'd be willing to wager that you definitely have it coming - whatever "it" is.
National Unity My Ass would have been NUMA..
yeah.. stay away from anything regarding Numa Numa..
I'm already a Moron over at Ace's place.. why not a numbskull too?
"Lemme have it. I've probably got it coming."
To turn the headline into an Obama speech..
"Jim sounds like he wants it. He may even need it. He was it to go there. And with your help, Jim will be able to get there for it. Yes, Jim can get it. Yes, Jim can get it. Thank you and God Bless"
You know, deep down in places I don't talk about at parties, I want you on this wall, I need you on this wall.
You had me at Space Unicorns.
And if I keep quoting Tom Cruise movies, I'm going to start abusing myself.
"And if I keep quoting Tom Cruise movies, I'm going to start abusing myself."
pix plz lol
My guess is, they'll confiscate my firearms while I'm at the office.
That's how I'd do it, anyway.
Your thoughts on this:
It's in the spirit of "Sorry Everybody" (I'm sure you remember that one..)
"From 52 to 48 with love
i would love to see a group project where obama supporters reached out to the mccain folk in a gesture of reconciliation...
something with the intimacy of the http://www.sorryeverybody.com/ project - but without the partisan divisiveness. simple messages. the feeling of being left out or ignored, or the target of payback is what made the last eight years so hard.
perhaps it is naive. the differences are real, i know. but we have to repair the damage done from this election cycle somehow..."
I don't know about you, but I just want to know where they hell these people were 4 years ago? 8 years ago? Ugh. I don't have the heart to be nice anymore. Not after every liberal in the country decided to join the BDS club.
This is what I'm getting at FOXNews.com this afternoon:
Status : 504 Gateway Time-Out
Description : Unable to connect to origin web server. The web site you are attempting to access is currently unreachable. This may be due to a network outage, or the web site might be experiencing technical difficulties.
That was fast.
I've got friends who are on the "Obama's not a citizen/show the birth certificate" bandwagon. It's nice that I can come here and get a dose of "Oh, lighten up, all of you. There's more than enough about Obama to oppose without making sh*t up."
Also, I'm holding out for my own wind turbine powered by unicorn farts, myself. Space unicorns just seem a little over-the-top, you know?
So, Jim, ehhhh...
Good job! Yeah, that's it! Good job.
I spun ya a fiver last month, just to show my appreciation. Know it's not much, but I'm a self-employed, small-business target these days, waiting for the midnight knock on the door.
Keep your chin up. Considering this gig's not paying much, do what you need to to afford the PBR to wash down that government cheese.
Me? I'm looking at the Republican bench, seeing for whom I am going to get active for 2012.
This is not even the 6th inning and some mooks are acting like the game is over.
You have done and are doing a great job. Keep it up, I know darn well this isn't over. The day after the election I decided to start volunteering for the Republicans, and I've never before in my life done anything political.
Well, jeez, Treacher, it's about time you did this! I've been trying to e-mail you for weeks and that crazy link you have demands money for access.
It's a great blog and I was always a little sorry when I read everything you'd posted for the day and I had to wait for the next run. I hope to see lots more because there's still plenty more to fight for. My little blog is not nearly as developed as yours (and thanks for commenting in it!) but I think every little bit helps. Any kind of resistance makes for one more pebble in the shoes. And I'm proud to point to you as one of the biggest pebbles.
I don't plan on seeing you in any re-education camps, because I don't plan on seeing any American sent to one of those shitholes. The fight is gone from me only when my body is cold and stiff. And even then I'll come back and haunt the bastards.
Thanks for standing up for our land and our values, and for maintaining a wonderful humor while doing it.
I've often wished I could say something here, but I'm emotionally spent at the moment. I do enjoy you very much, and over at HA.
One thing I noticed right now at Foxnews.com is most of the sensationalized Palin headlines are down--just one small blub about "blame"...hopefully, it's over. Maybe it was the outpouring of rage.
Thanks for the site, dude. So when are you going to gather your loyal followers together for a drink to drown our sorrows? Some of us must live near you, or at least not TOO far away...
Since I won't have to work anymore to pay for anything I'll have a lot more time to waste, er, spend reading your blog.
People who try to stand against the tides of history are a bunch of whiny losers. How can you not want to elect the first black diety to POTUS? C'mon!
Waiting for your thoughts on change.gov. I thought it was a prank at first. Truthfully, I don't think that it's fully sunk in that it's not a prank...
I hope we still get lots more posts over here because I have been reading this blog for yeaaaaaaars. You are rad, Treach! You. . . are . . . rad. . .!
Love ya Jim, you need to keep on keeping on for the rest of us. And sign me up for phone duty for Iowahawk in 2012, I gave him my last $50 this cycle instead of the McPalin. And PLEASE, let's all get on this change.gov thing right away...holy shi-ite, my jaw hit the floor reading through this, this, re-education syllabus.
I think I love you.
Aw fuck it.
I KNOW I do.
In Iowahawk's blurbs, you're quoted thusly: "I don't LIKE you. I LOVE you. In a GAY way."
I like you.
Oh jeez again. Why am I plagued with this? This...when something weird is up and I finally get a chance to mention it, it doesn't do it anymore.
Dunno what it was but now it's gone. Wish everything would go away so easily. Let me try:
Treacher, there's this guy who threatened to take away my gun and send my kid to a government school and make me pay for health insurance I don't need. Help!
Hey! Where's my gas!! I had to pay today to fill my tank....and my mortgage is coming due!! Are you the dude with the dough?
Re the 52to48withlove site... as I said on my own blog, "I suppose it would all depend on just how many of these people didn’t spend the past eight years calling people like me racist fascist babykilling warmongers. And as that’s something I’ll probably never know…"
It takes more than a kiss and a cookie. Or maybe Jesus would have been okay if Judas had handed him a cookie too? Whoops -- the party's gettin' serious! Never mind.
Please don't go away again for so long. You are needed to provide Saturday Night Live material about Obama to liberal writers who are too lame and unimaginative to come up with it themselves.
the late-nite comedians and SNL definitely need your help, so start providing material. of course, that will solidify your first-in-line status at the re-education camp. so you definitely have it coming.
God Damn Obama.
Thanks for your election coverage. You're bitter and clingy but I still like you.
It's good to know that once my Dem boss finally burns through that business line of credit from WaMu and runs the company into the ground:
1. The Messiah will take care of my bills.
2. There will be Jim Treacher to make me laugh.
Jim good job on the site. These next 4 years will suck but with you around it's will be bearable.
What you have coming, young man, is a strong, firm pat on the back, a nod, a Dangerfield "one o' these", a thumbs up, the "pistol point & wink", and a big wet "sailor & sweetheart on VJ Day" smoocharoo from us, the grateful mouthbreathing lower 48.
Now go get a real job so Obama can have your taxes. However, I think, should he actually try his tax plan, he "would not survive the attempt."
We're done here. Thank. You.
Shouldn't it be from 57 to 48? Stupid progressives don't even know how many extra states Obama created.
Actually, I'm torn over that site. On the one hand, everyone who agrees with me has been relentlessly demonized as bloodthirsty subhuman monsters for several years.
On the other hand, all those people were willing to write something on pieces of paper at their desks, and upload cell phone pictures of themselves to a website.
Man, I forgot the whole "sorry everybody" nonsense.
And the 52/48 bit? Not buying it.
In two years when the economy is in the toilet I'm not apologizing for my vote; and I'm not planning on "working together to try to make failed and idiotic policies work".
On the other hand, is www.IFreakingToldYouSo.com available? I might have a use for it if I'm right.
But hey, I could be wrong; raising taxes and increasing the cost of energy, transportation, and farm goods might be exactly the solution to solve a recession. At least I can't think of anyone having tried it before... I guess we'll find out.
As for the 52/48 thing, it's simply amazing how magnanimous they're willing to become now. And it's amazingly insulting, given the shit that they've flung at us over the past eight years. I guess now that they've won, we're not a bunch of fascists anymore, huh? Well, fancy that.
I say we push forward with the Treacherdyne T1000. Or, we fit Treacherbird 5 with nukes. Either one is good for me.
Screw the 52 to 48 jerks. Do they think we just forgot the last eight years?
Thank you for you all you do to keep us sane.
P.S., I also think the Pine-Sol lady would be a much better POTUS than B.O. She just looks like she won't take s*** from anyone, and if you ask her for grocery money because you blew your paycheck on a tattoo she'll tell in no uncertain terms that you're a moron.
This site causes me to both giggle and shoot pre-ejaculatory fluids from my special no-no area.
Good job sir.
I can let you have it, it's what you deserve. But it would end my marriage. Wait, then I would be an single Mom and able to take part in all that redistribution of everyone's wealth. OK, big boy, when/where can we make this happen?
Thanks for all the laughs, I expect a lot more to be forthcoming in the next 4 years.
Keep up the good work Jim!
And to the 52/48 people, I got a 50/50 for you:
You can kiss one side of my ass and then kiss the other.
I dunno, I'm willing to take what I can get with those 52/48 people. Sure, they were cowards and had no desire for unity or kind words and common decency when it mattered, but they probably don't have as many rude bumperstickers on their volvos and minivans as the bigger jerks on their side. Maybe just one or two.
But seriously, fine. Great. Thanks for not being dicks guys. Hey, that should be the response site. THANKS FOR NOT BEING DICKS. It has to be said, they deserve it.
You know who else wasn't a dick? Eddie Haskell.
Eh, you know how I feel - kind of like the way two REAL men do, you know, the kind who put Viking helmets on and ride each other around the room...wait...what?
One more thing - Reason sucks these days, all they do is pose as some kind of "wow, we're so contrarion to everything that we're the coolest kidz evah." Totally lost their way - infantile, narcissistic douchebags.
You need to buy Fallout 3. What an awesome game. You'll get at least 50 hours of playtime out of it. More than worth your $60.
You can wear Abe Lincoln's hat and shoot his hunting rifle at ghouls who scour the irradiated ruins of Washington D.C. and crave human flesh. If that doesn't sell you the game, I don't know what will.
Jim, will you ever be on Red Eye? Please say yes! You and Greg are practically lovers.
"One more thing - Reason sucks these days,"
In one sense this is absolutely true but it implies that Reason didn't suck back then either.
I mean, sure, hey, my political bearing is best described as libertarian and I even tried to throw a few votes that party's way this year but there's a reason Libertarian is a third party. It has something to do with the advertising demographic at Reason being made of people who are angry at the government because they want to inject a mixture of heroin and absinthe in their willy-dilly while peeing on a church sign.
Good points all, but I was hopeful that Welch would bring some much - needed sanity to the mag. Sadly, No!
As a conservative Christian, I'm concerned about those like Jim Treacher who haven't joined the rest of us concerned conservative Christians in posting an apology to the 52 for having been stupid and selfish and short-sighted enough to have voted for Shooty McBitchface & the Old Guy.
The rest of us in the losing 48% have already gratefully accepted the olive branch being generously extended in the twin spirits of Hope and Change by the 52% Who Are More Enlightened Than Us® and have repented of our stupid selfish short-sighted BusHitlerian ways.
As a happy convert to the ways of Obama the Lightworker and relieved of such petty stresses as "how to pay my mortgage" and "how to put fuel in my car," my only concern now is for the lost souls of those handful of 48-ers who like you have blithely rejected the 52-ers' call to national unity.
Every single other Republican I know has given up his or her bitter clingy neo/paleo-con ways in the interests of a brighter, happier, more united America (now! with 70% more rainbows & unicorns), and the only thing making us a little sad :-( is that there are still a few self-deluded hold-outs like you.
Stop being such a racist fascist baby-killing war-mongering Gaia-raping dinosaur and post. your. sign. NOW.
A concerned conservative friend.
P.S. Every time you post that smart-alecky N.U.M.B. thingy? A little baby unicorn dies. Explain *that* to Michelle's kids, hmm?
