A confession

PUMAs are starting to bore the shit out of me. Reading more than two sentences of their tiresome rants seems like a chore these days. They’ve become so predictable — someone could write a program that would factor in common headline terms and spit out pro forma screeds that would be indistiguishable from the real thing.

In fact, maybe someone has done just that, and the Paid PUMA Queen (PPQ) skipped off to Monaco with the loot contributed by J4H and the other suckers. That would explain why the PPQ is able to simultaneously hold so many contradictory opinions, e.g., Krugman is right — Obama is not addressing the economic crisis boldly enough! And OMFG, Obama is intalling a socialist system by intervening in the economy!

An automatic rant generation program wouldn’t necessarily catch the lapses in logic. But neither would a stupid person who has no fucking clue what she’s talking about but an economic imperative to gin up outrage several times a day. Occam’s Razor would tend toward the latter. But either way, I’m finding it tedious. How ’bout you?

  1. Even I have grown indifferent to them in the past week or so, sock puppetry notwithstanding.

    “but an economic imperative to gin up outrage several times a day”

    This is what I meant when I compared Murf to Marat – using a readership platform to preserve a moment of personal glory – in Darragh’s case those first heady weeks of support her PAC received, and the big plans which sprung up from that support.

  2. I agree with you betty, It’s becoming harder and harder to come up with anything substantial or different which hasn’t been covered already. The best I could hope for is that the mimi political run and subsequent failure causes more heads to explode which then results in a prowl about Miami politics being corrupted to be issued.

  3. yeah, I think I’ve moved on to Oily Taint and the Birfers. I’ll check back with PUMA occasionally to see if Jenni has finally gone postal, but other than that I’m done, as Mr. Steele would say.

  4. Umm Betty? That’s why we read this blog and not the PUMA blog. This is much funnier, it has you, Kerry, JohnD and umm, so no, I never tired of reading the pumas because I only read you!

  5. Same — without new stimuli, their absurd wrath is becoming far too repetitive. Besides, they seem thoroughly fragmented, so the non-entertainment part of my work is done.

  6. Poor pumas. Another epic fail. They’re done. How many are left on the Cesspool?

  7. While I’ll never leave my original love – the PUMA – I too am drifting away. The birfers get a good chunk of my stupid watching.

    I am looking forward to, however, them figuring out who’s been sockpuppeting over there.

  8. Where the hell is jenniforhillary these days? What did I miss?

    But did you ever consider how we suffer, Humboldt? Huh? Huh? Did you? Because believe me, man, we suffered plenty. Mainlining that kind of uncut lunacy day in and day out takes a toll.

    I don’t know that I’ll ever be able to quit the kittehs altogether. I’ve tried before. I’ve gone cold turkey for as long as a week or so. And then I’ll think, oh, it won’t hurt to just have one. Just one quick peek at a PUMAPAC thread. Just one hit of The Confluence. And the next thing I know, I’m completely off the wagon.

    I suspect this inability to tolerate their pro forma bitching will pass too. Something will happen that will draw them like catnip — maybe Michelle Obama will wear an orange pantsuit or something. And I’ll be unable to resist pointing and laughing at their absurd reaction.

    Sadly, I will probably be unable to resist heaping derision on those loons until they hork up their last hairball. But for the sake of my health, I gotta take it in moderation, you know?
