Increasingly Bored With PUMAs…

I’ve been absent a few weeks, which is one of the benefits of having such great guest bloggers, and checking back in today I saw Betty’s post below confessing boredom with the PUMAs. I share the sentiment, somewhat. I particularly appreciated Betty’s noting that many of the PUMAs, most notably Darragh Murphy, hold and express supremely contradictory opinions. Their only constant is that Obama is evil and wrong. During the last several months Murphy has championed both Paul Krugman’s critiques of Obama’s stimulus as too small, and the right wing critiques that deny entirely Keynesian stimulus. How could a person who doesn’t believe in Keynesian stimulus think that our stimulus was too small?

Increasingly, debinking PUMAs, or even pointing and laughing, has started to feel like pointing out that Pam Geller is an unhinged lunatic that hates muslims; it’s self-evident, and renders much of the work unnecessary.

However, I still derive an insolent pleasure, on some level, from marveling at how supremely stupid many of these people are. Furthermore, on some level I believe that people like Kim Haas and Darragh Murphy are so stupid and insane that their current derangement shouldn’t be forgotten when they get sick of PUMA blogging. When Kim Haas runs for school board, I want people to be able to google her and discover that she’s a raving lunatic. When Darragh Murphy runs for city council in Carlisle, MA, I want people to be able to discover quickly just how intellectually dishonest and deficient she is. It’s only fair to everyone.

I was sick for a week and a half, and I need a PUMA-break every once in a while, but I’m back. I’ve got a couple things I’ve meant to blog about in the works, but it’s tough, because I can’t even hope to keep up with the rate of stupid they churn out.

In the meantime, check out Kevin K.’s massive take down of the turd formerly known as myiq2xu (now known as meatprod4u). Meatprod is not just a hypocritical PUMA douchebag, but he’s actually such a sexist asshole that I would probably punch him in the face if I ever ran into him at a party. Of course, he’s probably too much of a sniveling shitbag to speak as boisterously in person as he does online.

    I really like the Quentin Letts post!

    Of course, Bostonboomer would like Quentin Letts, he’s a conservative who writes for the conservative tabloid The Daily Mail and the conservative broadsheet The Daily Telegraph. The left-leaning Guardian has called Letts a “homophobe.”

    Brits are Bored with Barack

    Yeah the cesspool is getting boring since it continues serve up the same old tired right-wing nonsense.

  2. Heh. Well, as you point out, I don’t think those media sources are at all representative of the feelings of “Brits” at the moment (and we just love being stereotyped along with RWers, but no matter).

    Fact is, after eight fucking years of daily fear and misery and anger under GWB – and feeling like we missed a whole slew of bullets when McCain/Palin didn’t get elected – even if it were true, it would be a luxury to be bored by a US president!

    As it is, the PUMAsd are going to have to wait a while if they expect to see widespread evidence of that boredom over here to shore up their increasingly shaky grasp on what passes for reality on their sorry blogs.

  3. Heh. Love it when you don’t realize Firefox has remembered your login from another “excursion”!

    As for the PUMA/Obama boredom thing, I think it’s more to do with being bored with themselves and their need for constant screaming outrage and self-justification.

    Aww, it must be boring to have to doublethink every single day. Over the past few days, their main activity over on the Effluence seems to have been obsessing over Michelle Obama’s fashion sense while complaining that the media’s misogynist for the way it treats female public figures.

    Well, actually, over here, the media hasn’t focused on this to the same exclusive extent – it’s had quite a bit to say about Mrs. O’s conduct in other areas. Such as making an inspiring first speech as First Lady to young women from a decidedly multicultural and somewhat disadvantaged London school – just the usual yada-yada like how it’s cool to be smart and how women who “make it” have a duty to reach out and help others, and that old feministy nonsense, you know. Nothing to see here folks. Wasn’t that sweater too tight?

  4. Hi,

    I wanted to draw your attention to this important petition that I recently signed:

    “Demand for myiq2xu To Be Removed From The Confluence”

    http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/myiq2xu?e

    I really think this is an important cause, and I’d like to encourage you to add your signature, too. It’s free and takes less than a minute of your time.

    Thanks!

  6. Jawbone, nah, don’t think so. As MYIQ=1/2acats aka meatprod4u is the perfect example of a puma bigot. Not interested in any Liberal issue such as health care. Prepared to go with whatever Krugman Left to StormFront Right talking point as long as it is anti Obama.. Completely dismissive of race issues and only interested in issues of sexism in as much as it affects their candidate or their mix of white middle aged bigots (allowing for a few token people of colour who they continue to racially abuse anyway).

    MeatProd4U personifies the PUMA movement.

    Go ahead and submit the petition. If SwampChucky posts it and debates it I would love to read the consequences. The consumption of their own would be a work of tragic art.

  7. Um, the first signature’s a bit of a giveaway, “jawbone.”

  8. Nijma, please stop sock puppeting. You’re free to comment here, but do so under your own name.

  9. Well, it was spelt “nijima,” but I guess IP addies tell all (I’d assumed it was someone else stirring it, but my psychic powers aren’t what they used to be …).

    Anyhow – I think myiq’s just fine where he is – as good as ten men short, and all that.

    And he handily epitomizes PUMA double standards (see “misogyny’s fine when we do it,” “a right-wing source that pillories Obama trumps any other that doesn’t,” etc. etc.).

  10. You want us to freep a goddamned PUMA petition?
    Thanks, but no thanks, I’m not your keeper and I don’t consider anything PUMAs do to be particularly important.

    Look, I don’t post on confluence and that means I am in no way responsible for the assholes that do.
    Besides, I’m sure all those progressive, strong and effective feminists posting at PUMA sites are quite capable of managing 1 misogynistic jackass without the help of obots.

  11. “Jawbone”,

    Why in the hell would we sign a petition to get rid of our entertainment?

    Peddle that shit over at PUMAPAC if they still let you post after your Muslim-humping the other night.

    Please. You and KarenWI showing up is the only watching over there anymore.
