Kiss my ass, Ed!

From Politico:

Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell says discouraged liberals need to “get over it” and support the Democratic Party, before they regret it.

“This isn’t about President [Barack] Obama,” Rendell said on MSNBC’s “Last Word” Monday night. “It’s about whether the Democratic Party, not perfect, but certainly bent on trying to preserve theories in government and progressive practices, is going to be in charge of the Congress or the Republican Party. And it’s not the Republican Party of old. This is a scary Republican Party.”

Of conflicts the left has had with Obama, Rendell said, “We ought to get over it.”

“If we’ve got some issues with President Obama, save them for another day,” he said.

Exactly what day would that be, Ed? In 2012 you’ll be telling us the same exact bullshit, and doofuses like BTD will be promising to hold Obama’s feet to the fire after the election.

But if Obama wins (please God, no!) he’ll just spend another four years punching hippies while his toes get frostbite.

I say fuck that and fuck you Mr. Rendell.

BTW – we still haven’t forgotten when you formed HOUND:

We have formed HOUND (Hillary-Obama-United-Not-Divided) in response to the creation of PUMA (party unity, my ass — or its cleaned up moniker, People United Means Action).

Get over this:

  1. I totally get the Tea Party.

    I do NOT want to vote for the Democrat on my ballot and I do NOT want to vote for the Republican.

    And Ed Rendell can kiss my grits.

  2. On election night that’s going to be my mantra, get over it.

  3. Like the Dixie Chicks, “I’m not ready to make nice!”

    • I prefer this version:

      • Forgive, sounds good.
        Forget, I’m not sure I could.
        They say time heals everything,
        But I’m still waiting

        I’m through, with doubt,
        There’s nothing left for me to figure out,
        I’ve paid a price, and I’ll keep paying

        I’m not ready to make nice,
        I’m not ready to back down,
        I’m still mad as hell
        And I don’t have time
        To go round and round and round
        It’s too late to make it right
        I probably wouldn’t if I could
        Cause I’m mad as hell
        Can’t bring myself to do what it is
        You think I should

        I know you said
        Why can’t you just get over it,
        It turned my whole world around
        but kind of like it

        I made my bed and I sleep like a baby,
        With no regrets and I don’t mind saying,
        It’s a sad sad story
        That a mother will teach her daughter
        that she ought to hate a perfect stranger.
        And how in the world
        Can the words that I said
        Send somebody so over the edge

      • Good one! Butt some might think being in black and white makes it seem raycist.

        • To me the sexism of ‘sit down and shut up little girl’. The moments in time that the song and their clothing represented. And the threat of a lobotomy through chemistry for uppity women were stronger themes than any racism that could be imagined.

          If the Obots want to try and imagine racism in that particular video….they’ve truly forgotten all perspective.

          • Of course, that didn’t stop the Obots in the past.

            And they have lost perspective on complaining about Bush II polices that Bush III continued.

            So maybe they hate the Dixie Chicks too. 😉

  4. “It’s not about Obama”: One and all, they now distance themselves and the party from B0. Too bad they didn’t do that in 2008 when it would have made a difference.

    • HONK!

    • Just like that DC rally wasn’t about Obama?? …then opps , it was. It’s not about Obama huh? I guarantee that if the Dems keep the house , Mr it’s not about him will take the credit and the Dems will give it to him…it’s a sucker punch

      • Well, yeah. If they retain seats, he’ll take the credit, and if they lose seats, it won’t be about him. But we’ll all know it is, and they do too. Hopefully that will inform the 2012 decision making.

    • Obama just did a TV ad in my congressional race. If it’s not about obama, then why is he doing that?

    • He’s even outdoing McCain. The day before the election, JM was always slobbering over Bush, then right after it’s all, “Look at me, I’m a maverick, now that it’s too late to do anything about it I’ll mildly criticize Bush.” But even he never had the audacity to push his luck by telling us to pick another day. Election Day is precisely the wrong day to express one’s outrage, let’s start thinking seriously about Arbor Day.

    • Hmm…I thought it was ALL about Obama back in 2008 when all the Obots I knew said he had longer coattails than Hillary. They need to eat crow for all the shiznit they pulled two years ago. I’m just going to sit back and enjoy the show.

  5. Ed, let us remind you — your “Democratic” party said they didn’t need us.

    Let us know when you get a real Dem party again. Until then, we’ve still got issues with Obama. Stuff like health care, jobs, education, habeas corpus, FISA, bank bailouts.

  6. Clown , you are on a roll…great post!

    Exactly what is the difference between the scary GOP and the Modern Dem? Dems do what the upper crust want too ….ringing their hands as they cave in AGAIN…is not a difference and does not warrant my vote…F./’em

    It’s about whether the Democratic Party, not perfect, but certainly bent on trying to preserve theories in government and progressive practices

    I dispute that Mr. Governor…The Modern Dem part is NOT bent on preserving nothing…. but the top 99.999% are just like their GOP counter parts

    bent on trying to preserve theories

    Huh? what does that even mean to someone looking for work?? The supposed good intentions crap mean nothing if you just roll over and over…It’s a con. This is where the enabling stops

    • This is where the enabling stops

      Honk, honk!

    • HONK HONK HONK!! Also emergency flashers and hanging out the car window yelling, “Hell, yeah!!!”

      I’m sick to death of both of them, and this every 2-4 year game of “but the other guys are worse” is done. DONE. Not. Playing. Any. More.

      I may just try to vote every incumbent out of office every time until SOMEONE starts listening.


  8. Melissa Mac over at Shakesville:

    Hey, Rendell, maybe instead of yelling at us, you should yell at the dipshits in your state who are trying to exploit the abortion exception in the health care bill, which was proposed, championed, and ultimately supported by the Democrats you’re admonishing us to vote for, without a trace of irony that THIS IS THE KIND OF SHIT that’s alienating progressives from your retrofuck party who’s actually moving BACKWARDS on women’s autonomy.

  9. Isn’t the plural of doofus doofi? Other than that, I heartily concur.

  10. Honk, honk!

    Póg ma thoin, Rendell

    These guys must really suffer from short term memory loss.

    RT @KeithOlbermann: Ratings in for debut of Parker-Spitzer last night. 460,000 total viewers (Countdown 1,122,000; FNC 3,113,000)

    I think that’s called Faux Rules

  12. Used to have great respect for Ed Rendell. I remember how he and Chelsea Clinton went “pub crawling” at gay bars in Philadelphia and I learned for the first time what a wonderful young woman Chelsea Clinton had developed into. (Wasn’t that when the ‘meme’ that Hillary Clinton was “pimping” her daughter began?)

    What a disappointment when he started that ridiculous “Hound”ing! I lost all respect for him then and there. Why is it so difficult to both show loyalty to your party and still retain your integrity?

  13. they are supposedly rewriting the caucus laws here in Texas, but i don’t believe the woman in charge has even bothered to watch We Will Not Be Silenced

  14. Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell says discouraged liberals need to “get over it” and support the Democratic Party, before they regret it.
    As Bartleby the scrivener says, “I prefer not too”.

  15. There’s a flamewar on twitter with each side doing WhyImvotingDemocrat and WhyImvotingRepublican and it’s got every right and left wing meme in the book on it

  16. Teh Stupid – it’s catching. I saw recently Mark Green in NY saying this nonsense – another one who should know better.
    They are all marching lockstep and acting arrogant as their orders from above require them to.

  17. Word to Rendell and all Democrats:

    the electorate isn’t voting against their interests, they are voting against YOU.

    GET. OVER. IT.
