Worst Quotes from the Kostards for 2007

2007 is almost over, and John Hawkins brings us an early Christmas present (or maybe it's more along the lines of a lump of coal... you decide) in the worst quotes from Daily Kos of 2007.

How he's able to pick just ten insane quotes from Daily Kos, I don't know. There's so much moonbattery, idiocy, paranoia, hatred, anger, and all around lunacy over there that I know I wouldn't be able to narrow it down to such a small list. The website would be hilarious (unintentionally so, of course) if the Kwazy Kos Kids weren't taken so damn seriously. Markos Moulitsas is one of the most powerful players in politics today. Democratic politicians regularly write for Daily Kos, and the Democratic presidential candidates couldn't get to the 2007 Yearly Kos convention fast enough. These raving moonbats are very influential, indeed, and they are definitely part of what has forced the Democratic Party to shift so dangerously far to the left.

I won't list all ten -- visit Right Wing News to see them all. But here are my favorites:

"I wrote a diary a short time ago about how the Bush administration helped ruin my marriage. It wasn't because my husband was a Bush supporter or anything...it was because of all the stresses from job loses, living without health insurance and getting sick, to my husband being forced to take a job where he wasn't home much that helped ruin my marriage." -- angrybird

I saw this quote as a perfect example of BDS today. Liberal Democrats hate President Bush so much, that often they will blame him for anything and everything that goes wrong in their lives. This Kostard's marriage didn't last, and what was the President supposed to do about that? Intervene for her? Personally make sure her husband gets a good job, and that they both stay employed, so neither one of them gets stressed out, ever? Last time I checked, marriage was considered to be "For better or for worse, in sickness and in health, til death shall we part", not "As long as we both have a job and health insurance, are healthy, and are not stressed out". But I must clearly be mistaken.

I often find BDS to be a crazy mix of paranoia, egotism, anger, lunacy, and narcissism, all rolled together into one mentally-challenged moonbat. And this wackjob shows that rather perfectly, I think.


"I know I'm a Jewish lesbian and (Ahmadinejad would) probably have me killed. But still, the guy speaks some blunt truths about the Bush Administration that make me swoon...

Okay, I admit it. Part of it is that he just looks cuddly. Possibly cuddly enough to turn me straight. I think he kind of looks like Kermit the Frog. Sort of. With smaller eyes. But that's not all...

I want to be very clear. There are certainly many things about Ahmadinejad that I abhor -- locking up dissidents, executing of gay folks, denying the fact of the Holocaust, potentially adding another dangerous nuclear power to the world and, in general, stifling democracy. Even still, I can't help but be turned on by his frank rhetoric calling out the horrors of the Bush Administration and, for that matter, generations of US foreign policy preceding." -- sallykohn


This is, I think, another example of BDS gone rampant. A Jewish lesbian has "a crush" on Ahmadinejad because he doesn't like George Bush. The fact that he hates the President and the United States in general excuses every horrible thing he has done and will do, which she names herself! But hey, for a Kostard, as long as you hate George W. Bush and the U.S., you're A-OK with them. You can do whatever you want, as long as you make sure to call the United States the Great Satan fairly regularly and condemn anything President Bush does. Libs will be perfectly fine with that. Hate Dubya, and you can do anything. Moonbats will simply look the other way.

And for what it's worth, in my opinion, the fact that a monster like Ahmadinejad hates President Bush only makes me like the President even more.


"I have never in my 50 years of life been more frightened then I am now. I have seen the arrogance of this White House and the massive damage done to our country. But the Katrina-size storm clouds are gathering folks. If we do not wake up now and flood Congress to impeach the President and Vice President, one year from now, Daily Kos may be banned and Markos himself may be disappeared, in a federal prison somewhere.

....This is deadly serious folks. This is not just another diary. We ignore this threat at our own peril. I would suggest even I in writing articles like this and the many writers at Daily Kos are personally at risk of being arrested in a future dictatorial United States. The government will use these writings as an excuse to put us away.

....I say WAKE UP Daily Kos!! If the people at Daily Kos cannot take this seriously and try and do something about it, then the United States, as a free country IS doomed. Enjoy your freedom to read and write at such sites as Daily Kos, because that freedom will be taken away WHEN Bush declares martial law." -- slw0606


This is the kind of paranoia that runs rampant among the Kwazy Kos Kids, and among leftists in general. Sometimes I wonder if they honestly believe the things they write. Do these idiots really think that George Bush is going to declare martial law and refuse to give up the presidency? And what is it that makes them so damn paranoid? The ironic thing is that it isn't President Bush, or Republicans, or conservatives, seeking to censor and stifle opposing viewpoints. Its liberals and Democrats. You see it in the Fairness Doctrine; in the hatred towards Fox News and talk radio. You see it when Democrats riot against conservative speakers. They try to shut down opposing viewpoints constantly, but then tremble in their environmentally-friendly homes, fearful that Republicans are going to jail dissidents! I just find it hard to believe that they really believe what they are saying. But, when it comes to the Kostards, you never know.


"...We need to lose this war and not start the next one so that we can remain a free people. Diminished on the world stage? Perhaps, like Great Britain was diminished when it surrendered its colonial empire. But free." -- bluedogtxn

This is just another example of what every conservative already knows: they want the United States to fall. They claim they love their country. They claim to support the troops. But every leftist to say so is lying. They don't support our troops, and their allegiance is to the U.N., not the United States. Cheering for an Iraq defeat is not unusual over at Daily Kos by any means, sadly enough. I just can't help but wonder why it is that Democrats and liberals have to be so anti-United States, anti-war, anti-military. Almost every Democrat will probably name JFK and FDR as heroes of theirs, but those men were decidedly not anti-United States and not anti-military. They were willing to stand up and fight for their country, a country they loved. Leftists today hate America and love globalism. For them, we should be kneeling at the altar of the U.N. and the world leaders presiding there.

To see what the other winners were, including the number one quote (a quote that to this day makes me furious!), head on over to Right Wing News. Knowing your enemy is the best way to defeat them, so make sure to get familiar.

Are you trying for the Best Imitation of Kostard Paranoia on Wizbang Award? It's a gallant attempt, and may get some style points for being first out the gate, but it's not yet a winner.

You need to reach deep inside and give it your very best effort to produce a true masterpiece of Kostardity at which everyone on Wizbang can marvel.

"Friends, the most important moral decision a man makes in the course of a day is "Who am I going to kill today?" That's a decision you should agonize over, dream about, rehearse in your mind for hours, not just leave up to some hare-brained President you didn't even vote for.

"A man's killing list is a very personal matter. It should be between him and those persistent voices in his head."

Being a woman, am I allowed to have a killing list? Because goodness knows, I get up every morning and agonize over mine. I ask myself: Is it for a good reason? Is it strictly personal? Have I rehearsed it sufficiently? Do the voices in my head approve?

JFO:

Now the funny thing is I've visited Kos once or twice. Like Wizbang they have some reasonable comments and some crazy comments. I don't particularly like the blog. I prefer sites like The Moderate Voice. I understand some of you (wing)nuts wouldn't have any idea what being a moderate is all about.

marc, your schtick is old and worn out. Just scroll through the comments, any day would be fine, and if you exercise just at tad of intellectual honesty you'll find plenty of what I'm talking about. I'm not holding out much hope for your intellectual honesty however. You've never demonstrated any before.

Right at the very beginning Right Wing News has this:

Keep all of that in mind as you read these excerpts and quotes, all of which come from the Daily Kos writers, not from commenters on the blog

These are the actual articles posted. Not the comment section.

Speaking of cowardly, why don't you enlighten us on who this poster is on Wizbang is to which you refer and how that poster is in keeping with this moonbattery from Kos. Speaking in generalities in a comment section coupled with insults is pretty weak knee.

Come on and be a stand up guy/gal/it and share who it is and what they wrote so we can judge.

There is a huge difference between commenter's that link to articles, relay personal experiences or anything of value verses someone whose only comments are "you're a poo-poo head" in every single comment posting.

You are one those that think they are "hot snot on a silver platter", but to the rest of us reading your poo-poo head posts, you come off as "cold boogers on a paper plate".

Whatever, they both have comment sections and they are usually in agreement with "the diarist". Everyone in their group think post basically the same thing whether it's the "main" article or a "diary".

I was going to troll through the comments on the winning entries to compare and contrast those comments from the "main" articles.

But I see they have temporarily shut down the site.

Probably time to do a little aisle clean up since so many are peeking in right now.

One need only check in at Kos or DUh any day to find dozens of similar entries. I suspect John just selected and saved a few along the way, knowing it would be physically impossible for anyone to wade through all the tripe and find objectively "worse" entries.

JFO makes a general statement, but refuses to back it up with specifics. Sure, we have the occasional comment here about "Clinton death lists" and other weird ideas, but nowhere near the percentage of sheer nonsense posted at Kos - and no one, to my knowledge, has yet claimed "Hillary ruined my marriage," although thinking about her at inappropriate times could easily have that effect.

While Kos "diarists" aren't quite the same as our "editors," it wasn't necessary to wade through the fever swamp to find the entries Hawkins selected: they were "promoted to the main page" either by a Kos editor or by reader approval votes. These are NOT "extreme examples;" they are at least commonplace - if not "mainstream Kos" (if that isn't a contradiction in terms).

My "schtick" as you call it may be old and worn out, but it far exceeds anything you have posted on a regular basis.

And of course it's in opposition to your schtick that includes making wild, and at times false statements and when respectfully asked to back them up with proof you respond like you have in this instance, like a 6 year-old screaming "'cause I SAID SO!"

Tell me JFO from the normal placement of eye eye sockets do you have a prime viewing spot to see your colon?

Ah, I get it. They're "diaries". That means there's an excuse for the insanity. They're not "authors" they're "diarists".

ha-ha

And no - NOT anyone can post a diary at DailyKos. They have to be sufficiently to the left of center all the way to so far left that operating under a pseudonym on the internet is the only way they can communicate that crap.

Next we'll hear that Rove has planted right-wing operatives there to say these crazy things to make them look bad.

So...crazies at Kos?

Talk about Krazies. This one circulates in the innermost circles of the White House.

How about the ultimate Krazy, the neo-con kook advisor to both Bush and, currently, Benito Ghouliani, Norman Podhoretz, "Dark Suspicions About the NIE."

"[The NIE] has just dealt a serious blow to the argument some of us have been making that Iran is intent on building nuclear weapons and that neither diplomacy nor sanctions can prevent it from succeeding...
...I entertain an even darker suspicion. It is that the intelligence community, which has for some years now been leaking material calculated to undermine George W. Bush, is doing it again. This time the purpose is to head off the possibility that the President may order air strikes on the Iranian nuclear installations."

Look to your own house, Cassy.

JLawson:

Considering the track record of the CIA on Pakistan's nuclear program (CIA said they weren't even close until they did their tests) and Saddam's WMDs (CIA said he had them until we actually looked) and on the fall of the USSR (rock solid, according to the CIA, until it imploded)...

Anything the CIA puts out as gospel ought to be taken with a VERY large amount of skepticism. If they say the Iranian program isn't a threat and hasn't produced anything - I'd consider it a much better than even chance they're getting ready to pop off a test shot. Maybe on Israel. (Hey, it's a two-fer - if the bomb works, they wipe out a lot of Jews. If it doesn't, then they spread radioactive crap over a wide area, hopefully killing a lot of Jews. Win-win either way if you're of that mentality...

I just think it'd be a real good idea to distrust anything out of the CIA, without independent verification. And with nukes - well, who's going to get fired at the CIA if they're wrong?

Am I paranoid about nukes? Fuckin' A, you betcha. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the only two times nukes have been used on a civilian (or military) target. You thought Katrina was a catastrophy for New Orleans? You ain't seen nothin' - and I for one don't WANT to see it. If that means we've got to be a hell of a lot more proactive with nutjob countries slavering after the nuclear bone, so be it - but if you block it as hard as you can politically don't come bitching and crying after a city in the ME or Europe gets lit up saying you didn't mean for THAT to happen, and why didn't someone DO something before it did!

LoveAmerica Immigrant:

It was crazy believe that 9/11 could happen. Now it is crazy not to assume that a nuclear 9/11 could happen. If the NIE is correct, we all should thank Bush for taking out Saddam. That should be a major factor for Iran 's decision to halt their nuclear program. But it will be crazy not to assume that the intelligence may be wrong again.
