PUMA: more wild and wacky election fun

Just got introduced to PUMA – Party Unity My Ass. Apparently, these are the “dead-ender” Clintonistas (insurgency implications included). Here’s some quotes from two PUMA sites:

PUMA Power:

Now is not the time to put a love object in office, a weakling who will be entirely dependent on his power elite enablers. Or worse, he may be a dissembler who has barely disguised his contempt for the voters.

There will be a lot of calls for “Unity!”. But let us acknowledge what this really is. “Unity” is a weapon that the party is going to use against us. It is the emotional blackmail of the teenager. “If you don’t let me have my way, it will be all YOUR fault if something bad happens!” “If you don’t get in line, it will be YOUR fault if we lose.

Cannonfire (toward the end of the post):

The Obot journals have published a few pieces on how to talk to the PUMA partisans. All of these pieces show them to be just as clue-free as Garrett and Dan were in that old skit. None of these pieces suggests that the progs might make some headway if they showed some humility. Here’s a suggested start:

“We spread lies against Clinton. We acted like Freepers. We’re sorry.”

Pure ego forbids them from making this admission. Indeed, the Lightbringer himself has said that he had to “bite his tongue” in dealing with Hillary — as though he were the offended party, as though he were on the receiving end of a smear campaign!

There’s no humility in Obotland. As these reponses to Traister’s piece exemplify, they remain mired in their revolting Messianic adulation of the Lightbringer (even though they no longer even try to defend him against charges of serial prevarication) and in their hatred of all things Clintonian . . .

What a really interesting campaign this continues to be.

Update (2008 June 28 ): US News mentioned this phenomenon, noting that more than 100 anti-Obama blogs have been created in the last 20 days.

Update (2008 June 29): The Confluence has a photo essay on a PUMA protest at a Unity event with both Obama and Hillary. Very interesting. Here’s Just Say No Deal, Party Unity My Ass, Democrats 4 McCain, DNC Monopoly, PUMA Party, and there’s a lot more out there.

Also, I have a new post up about Obambi.com and other hate sites.

Update (2008 June 30): Anti-PUMA activities?

    Because of Rezko, Ayers, Wright, 20 years of Black Liberation Theology at TUCC, Levine, Sinclair, Pfleger, Moss, Meeks, Chicago board games, MI delagates given to a candidate not even on the ballot, etc. , and as a lifelong democrat, 32 years, I will be voting for a Republican for the first time ever.

    Hillary or McCain 08!!!!!

    Hillary or McCain are my two choices as well. I think both would do well as CINC.

  3. […] Obambi: hatin’ on Obama Posted June 29, 2008 Filed under: politics | Tags: Barack Obama, hate, Obambi, PUMA | Obambi is an eye-opening site that shows there is some serious Obama hatred around.  I ran across it looking through PUMA sites I mentioned previously. […]

    Wow! Just heard about you guys! This is exciting!!
    Anybody here have any idea why the *media* is not talking about Phil Bergs lawsuit? I think it should be being talked about. It is more of the same questionable action of Obambi, people have a right to know!
