Poor Mo Rocca. He struck a particular rich vein of shrill inanity. Let me present several choice gems, as the insane frantically nurse their wounds by drinking the blood of invisible enemies:
"Has the world gone mad. A man who is a closet Muslim, (who honestly I was going to vote for) until I found out that he had been attending a church for many years where a man (not a man of God) was preaching hate towards not only whites but also all Americans" -Kathy, who doesn't do nuance.
"READ your history books, folks! Cuba wanted change and flocked after the youthful charismatic candidate - guess what - they are still living with that change; his name is Castro."-shrspen, using the "Change, ergo Castro" gambit.
"It amazes me that the American people are so stupid to put this punk in the whit house especially after all the things he has said about white people in his book and his associates this man is not even an American citizen, he said he would rather help the muslims than the Americans he is a traitor a punk and an ignorant pile of crap, and now comes the socialist states of America, god help us and now is the time to pray for the neo nazis, we need them now more than ever." -william evans, who is hopefully a Poe.
".....thank "Mohammed Hussein" that Gumby will be in the BlackHouse for only 4 years. It will be a hoot to see what his first rulings are on: Original or Crispy Fried Chicken ......what....a....joke...." -Jeep, who had most likely spent the last few hours weeping into his KKK hood.
"I THINK NOT UNLESS WE ARE GOING TO CONGRATULATE THE MUSLIMS FOR FINALLY HAVING AN OPEN DOOR POLICY TO COME FLY PLANES INTO OUR BUILDINGS AT THEIR LEISURE NOW...KINDA SAD HOW MANY NEW YORKERS VOTE FOR A GUY THAT SUPPORTS THE SAME RELIGION THAT BLEW THE HELL OUT OF THEIR STATE, I GUESS THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN, GIVE IT 6 MONTHS AND THEY'LL SADLY REMEMBER" -JT, COTTAGE GROVE, OREGON, who thinks that compensating with Caps Lock is original and edgy.
"THIS IS A SAD DAY FOR AMERICA, AND THE WORLD, YOU HAVE JUST VOTED IN THE ANTI-CHRIST, TO RULE THIS NATION, HE WILL BE SOMEONE FOR CHANGE AND BE FROM DIFFERENT ORGIN" - NANCY, who has been reading too much of the "Bigot's Annotated Left Behind" series.
"I am so sad that Americans are so stupid! They do not even research anything. Whoever thought we had it bad right now just wait for these four years. OMG! I think I need to move to Canada! Americans (McCain supporters) please start digging your bunker because we are going to get bombed!" -noyler32, brilliantly blending paranoia with blatant irony.
"Sane is not associating with terrorists. And not negotiating with them. There really is a common thread there. Sane is years of experience and heroism when things are their most trying. Sane is in substance. Sane is not electing an inexperienced, green emergent because he delivers good speeches (sans substance) and has the media on his side. I think this country needs a good shot of thorizine." -watleyredbarrel, pretending to be sane.
"911 changed the USA for ever. It sickens me to have the Muslims run this country. I truly believe anyone who can not honor our American Flag a symbol of our right to be free has something other than America on his mind. Think of the other countries laughing at us right now. There will be major change in the next four years.
"God Bless Us" No mattered if the demarcates or the republicans ran Obama on there ticket I could never bring myself so low as to vote for a Muslim. 911 made me prejudice if that is what you are referring to. I didn’t just wake up one day and say “I want to be prejudice”" -DP, expanding the War On Consonants from the letter "g" to the later "d". "-ed" endings have had it too good for too long.
"I have never been so disgusted in my country as I am tonight. We all have very short memories. it wasn't bad enough that the Democratic party had no better Candidate to put forward for President. But to think the American People would consider, and elect this disgrace as the leader of the United States of America. A man who won't recognize our nation's symbol's for what they are. We have really forgot 9/11/01. The sad fact is, when this obamanation takes over, 9/11 will look like a tea party. I for one will expect total accountability, if we are capable of directing blame. We have never, ever, been safer as a Nation then we are now. And the sad fact is when our country comes under attack, and it will, Our Historic Leader will conveniently be out of the country. " -ETrennes, Professional Psychic.
"Do we not recall 9/11...for no good reason...men, women, children, mothers, fathers, uncles, brothers,etc...so many people killed ON AMERICAN SOIL...not one had a choice to survive...and today the people of America choose a "Barrack Hussein Obama" as Commander-in-Chief???" -Kath: Totally not a racist.
"Some of this election had to be fixed..lol....How in the world, the people of this country put this man in the white house is beyond me. Has to be some other agenda that we the people dont know about....People voted for change just for change sake. The change could be worst..lol..But i guess they dont care....as long as there is change...lol.....Be careful what you hope for..lol." - GaryW; speaking the truth/fearmongering/lol.
"Simply put, this man will go down to be THE
worst president in American history.
Obama won because of the media's rock-star treatment for a man who says absolutely nothing, but with great eloquence.
Change? That's all you'll have left in your pockets by the time this complete idiot is through taxing you." -Gormann66, Mind-reader/Prophet/Economist.
"Our forefathers..our great leaders who once made this country what it was..based on honesty and religion are all rolling over in their graves..How could people honestly vote for a man who wont say the pledge of allegence, who doesnt believe in this country except as a stepping stone for terrorists to take over..who will just make this country go to hell in a hand basket as the saying goes...I agree with the person who said we will become just like cuba..." -Pat, who doesn't know how conspiracy theories are supposed to work.
"THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WILL BE NO MORE, IT WILL BE A SOCIALISTIC, MUSLIM, ARAB, PRESIDENT LEADING AMERICA DOWN THE PATH OF DESTRUCTION. AND WHERE IS OBAMA'S ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE? WILL NO ONE DEMAND HE PRODUCE IT FOR AUTHENTICATION PRIOR TO SWEARING IN? I DO APPLAUD OBAMA FOR KEEPING HIS WIFE OUT OF SIGHT AND SOUND AS SHE HATES WHITES AND THIS COUNTRY. IT WILL BE AN INTERESTING 4 YEARS IF WE LAST THAT LONG, GOD HELP US." -jane graham, a victim of Hannity Overexposure Syndrome.
"CHICKEN SHTS...The united states of america, has no use for the fearfull pathetic morons that have plagued these forums for 2 years...Are there any VETS out there...thinkers out there??// OH POO, now youll have to rearrange your underwear drawer to accomodate DEPENDS so you dont sht yourself, everytime OSAMA/OBAMA/YA MAMA, gets on the TV...sheeple...get a grip, if you are so fearfull of one man you will never meet...who brings in your mail, goes for groceries, gases up the car? This is the USA folks...if this turd screws it up? He will get what the last turd got...a fat pension, personal library,and lifetime security guards...and a stupid worthless coin with his bad pic..." -alan patch, a less than ideal rebuttal to the madness.
"For the first time in my life, I am ashamed to be an american. All of you who voted for oslama will get nothing that he promised and much more than you bargained for..you'll see! but, it may be cormforting to you to know they're celebrating in iran today too!" -truamerican, who will not be one for long.
"Shortsighted people did not take the "whole" picture into consideration. I see the uneducated minorities are already dancing in the street. yeah...like this is a good thing. don't complain when things don't turn out the way you thought Obama supporters. he does not have the perserverence or leadership abilities McCain has." -gofigure!?, who uses strange definitions of the word "leadership".
"At one point during the campaign, Michelle Obama stated that for the 1st time in her life she was proud to be an American. Now, for the 1st time in mine, I'm ashamed. I cannot believe there are so many people that can be fleeced. Sure, Barack Obama is charismatic, but so is Hitler -- and Obama seems to have just as many people fooled!" -debbie, Godwinning for the lose.
"I cant believe all the tupid young people, They ar enot old enough to remember the last time we had a democrat for president, let alone a black muslim. I fear the worst has just begone. GOD HELP US ALL" -Sonia, who needed to wear irony-proof armor to type up that post.
" It’s a sad day when people speak about not judging others by the color of their skin, but people place a man in the most powerful position in the world, because of his color. It’s either that or two other things, they didn’t look into his voting records on Abortion (the murder of innocent children) & taxes, his stance on homosexual marriage, his radical views on our defense, his views on America (spoken by his friends & his pastor Rev. Wright)…or we just don’t give a flying rip about America, our freedoms & where we stand before God.
I know by the sign that you were standing behind, that you believe that anyone who voted against Obama is racist. I’m white, some Native American, but I was really hoping that we were starting to become a nation that was more worried about character & not color. But, I kinda hope that people voted for him on color, because if they are good with his immoral views, then we are worse off than I thought." - shawn mason: "No, you're racist!"
"I am with the comment that said maybe we should just quit our jobs and allow this "wonderful" new democratic office to take care of us. Other wise we just hand over almost 1/2 of everything we make to take care of people who just won't work." -patrice, who reeeeaaallly doesn't like taxes.
"America is now just another third world socialist country. Obama, Pelosi, Reid. I always say countries deserve the government they get. For me, I'll be keeping my money off shore. He may want to redistribute wealth, believe me folks, it won't happen. People with money will simply move it elsewhere, and forming companies in places like Cyprus is oh so easy." -Tom, giving us a taste of how much "real Americans" care about America.
"Dear Jubilant Socialist Party Members,
Hate to be the one to break it to ya, but Capitalism has produced more common wealth than Socialism and Communism added together, then multiplied times their weight, then squared.
Enjoy your brief moment in the spotlight. I'll be back...
Freedom" painesright, mailing to the wrong address again.
"If Barack Obama applied for a job with the FBI or the Secret Service, he would be disqualified because of his past association with William Ayers, a known terrorist. And yet, he is heading for the highest office in the land.
If Obama is elected President he would not pass the security screening to be his own body guard!" -daphne, entertaining us with playful spin.
"Wake up!!! Bloggers who stated that he was calm even after his Grandmother died two days ago...says it all. He doesn't show emotion, he doesn't care about his own family, let alone the American People. This was a Black Vote, period...I for one, will be watching my back, and the skys above....we all need to be on our toes now. Especially since CNN reported this morning that the "Taliban is now willing to NEGOTIATE with American"!! Negotiate with terrorists!!!" -Houston, who is mourning a lost opportunity to call Obama a pussy.
"you are nothing but puppet nation and has been mastermined by a zionists agendas for succing up your economy. You got drawn into and perished by their ever cunning and greed ideologies. So manipulative and who introduced the concept of interest to the world." -joy, on drugs.
"You know the sad thing is, BHO won simply because he was black, not because he has the qualifications to run the most powerful nation in the world. JMC didn't stand a chance with having to fight the mainstream media too, but as soon as BHO is established in the White House, we will become exactly what he & his AntiAmerican buddies set out to make us..The USSA, United Socialist States of America... He HATES America..I guess Ayers will be Minister of Defense,Wright will be charge of the state run church,the black panthers will become the black guard of the White House,ACORN will in charge of welfare,Barney Frank can be minister of Gay rights, but sadly no one will stand up and help the millions of soon to be killed babies who will die as a result of "choice"...Woe be to us...I fear we are in for destruction, just like Sodom & Gomorrah..." -dls54, a walking repository for the election year's talking points.
"Tonight reminded me of a scripture in the bible. where they siad a way with Jesus and release unto us Barabbas. They chose a evil man in the stead of a Good man a honest man. and upright man. And I hope and pray that God protects America from Socialism and Cummonism. And that Gods ears are open to the voice of those who say kill the unborn. I pray that he will bring much pain and suffering their way. To teach them that this Jesus is real and to fear the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. and all that is an abomanation unto the Lord will be destory with the brightness of his coming." -Dolores Holstein, pro-life enough to pray for the death of dissenters.
"Black have had the right to vote for many, many years and this years presidential election only proved to me, that blacks finally used the right that many whites died for.
Their chant, "We shall overcome" now turns into, "We will take over".
Carter opened our gates to all of Cubas prisoners and the worst of the worst. Obama will now open our gates to radical Islamic muslims, whose soul goal is to dominate the world.
Jews who voted for Obama can sit and wait for another Holocaust, because it will come and when it does, they have no one but themselves to blame.
All Christian rights, in public, have been taken away but we can now look forward to the endless hours of chanting and ranting from Mosques that will pop up on every street corner." -Pat [again], totally not an islamophobe.
In fairness, there was a lot of a crazy in those comments on both sides of the aisle, as well as some reasonable posts from both. But...these were the funniest.
