    Angry Dems: Bush Win Worse than 9/11

    The results of Tuesday's election have driven Democratic ultra liberals completely batty, with some now saying George Bush's victory was actually worse than the 9/11 attacks.

    An online poll conducted by the Web site Democratic Underground found that 72 percent agree that Bush's re-election was the more devastating of the two events, with 28 percent who said it wasn't.

    DU members were invited to explain their votes. One typical response:

    "9/11 was an outside attack on our country and was terrible. 11/3 was an inside attack on everything our country stands for and should be, it will have been far worse historically."

    Other DU'ers, however, realized how nutty the comparison was. Complained one poster:

    "This way out attitude, I'm afraid, is what contributed to our loss Tuesday. How mainstream is it to believe that an election loss is more depressing than one of the worst days in the history of our land?"

    I wonder if Newsmax writers were banned too. :laugh:

    Absolutely pathetic. In a saner day and age, you'd have gotten the shit slapped out of you for saying less.

    When even the people on DU are fighting among themselves, it makes me wonder how far away we are from the Democratic Party splitting in two. I could see this leading to the new Progressive Party sometime in the next few years.

    Hmm....well I think these people should get the fuck out!! I would slap someone who said a president getting elected was worse then thousands of people being killed. There's gotta be a way we can expose DU for this. This pissed me off.

    Not likely. While you might expect the Democratic Party to split into the Socialist (far-left DU, Micheal Moore) and New Progressive (Moderate-Leftists, Clintonistas [Bill, not Hillary]) Parties, you must remember for Dems everything is trumped by the greatest moral of all, Political Expediency. Rather than split their votes between 2 parties, they will still just keep one party to try and counteract the Republicans.

    That is why I decided not to be a policeman. I wanted to be a cop when I was in high school. But I know if I'm on duty and I see this shit, my nightstick is gonna get alot of miles put on it. I could just see the headline "Out of Control Policeman Beats Protester to Bloody Pulp".

    I think the ACLU would be the only one with a problem with that.

    This kind of riduculous bull is exactly why their party lost. When will they see that they are no longer Democrats,but far left Liberals and the country is not going that way?! They are lacking common sense and totally out of touch with all of us. I just knew there would be tantrums and all kinds of insane rhetoric going on. It seems like all that I hear on the wonderful(sarc) news is that " Bush is going to have to work with the Dems". No, he doesn't have to work with people that spit out useless insults that get our country nowhere. For Pete's sake,there are lawsuits all over in Ohio,these people don't know how to loose.

    I was coming out of the bank yesterday and heard a black woman telling her friends that Gore would have won last time if he had just let Clinton canpaign for him. Geese,does she really believe that someone is going to change their vote because of him? Quit trying to make excuses and accept that this is who the majority wants to make the decisions around here.

    I went over and looked aroung at DU,and what they are saying is no surprise. They will loose everytime making these kinds of sick comparisons!!!
