Noses and boots

A couple items from Gannett News Service reporter Erin Kelly on the Vermont delegation in Denver:

- Sen. Patrick Leahy said Wednesday that his speech before the Democratic National Convention was delayed a bit Tuesday evening because he suffered a nose bleed just before he was about to take the stage.

Leahy had been scheduled to speak immediately after New York Gov. David Paterson.
Instead, the schedule was quickely re-arranged as Leahy's wife, Marcelle, a nurse, tended to him. He gave his speech without incident about 20 minutes later.

Fellow Vermonter Howard Dean, chair of the Democratic National Committee and a doctor, went backstage to find out what the holdup was.

"He asked if he could do anything, and I told him, 'No thanks, the nurse has it under control,' " Leahy said.

Leahy said Denver's altitude and dry air caused the problem.

- Since he is about 1,500 miles from Vermont, former Gov. Howard Dean figured it was safe for him to pull on a pair of black cowboy boots without subjecting himself to ridicule from his fellow Vermonters.

Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told Vermont delegates to the Democratic National Convention this week that he has been looking for an excuse to wear the boots since 1992, when the governor of Oklahoma gave them to him as a gift. Dean was Vermont's governor at the time.

"Of course I couldn't wear them in Vermont," he said. "If you wear cowboy boots in Vermont, you're considered to be either an eccentric or a poser."

Who knew Dean was so sartorially conscious?

Dean said the boots seem appropriate in Denver among the cowboy hats and statues of horses.
"I haven't taken leave of my senses," he assured the Vermonters. "But when in Denver ... ."

- Erin Kelly

Howierd Dean took leave of his senses when he ran for President. What a joke he is.
 
McCain is a bigger joke.

"Jeff Cooper the voice of the Dumbocratic party in Vermont"

Nah, but at least the gops have your ignorant anonymous ass to show them the way.

Well, little fella, you're dumb, you're scum and ya got bupkis, but look on the bright side. At least ya managed to spell my name right.

Say goodnight, greasy.
 
Start moderating this discussion or begin to lose the few of us who read it. Am getting sick of the sick comments that just keep rolling on.
 
Didn't the new really young guy used to have a spokesman when he was at transportation? I'm surprised they let him talk on his own now. I mean, if he needed a spokesman at transportation, he must not have been competent on his own.
 
The Free Press wants coop here. Otherwise they would have blocked him months ago.

Trolls make traffic. Traffic mean more banner ad views. More banner ad views means more money for the Free Press.

When customers look at the name of the company in question they make a subliminal association with the words of JWCoop10 and stay as far away from the business as they can

Well, little nameless-nitwit fella, if you don't like anonymous trash spewin' anonymous trash, stop spewin' anonymous trash.

Your fate is in your own little anonymous trash hands.

Always a pleasure.
 
Jim Douglas cut funding for State Colleges, but gave his own staff bonuses of $10,000 each.

Your tax dollars at work !!
 
Jim "Mr. Trooper" Douglas still hasn't filled 20+ state police vacancies, but he is well represented in the newspapers.

"The Free Press wants coop here. Otherwise they would have blocked him months ago...."

In other words, you're still dumb, you're still scum and your ignorant anonymous ass has still got bupkis.

Thanks for clearin' that up, little fella.

Stay cold, phony boy.
 
Douglas's advisors deserve the money more than the state troopers.

The troopers don't do anything.

Well, given the fact that doogie's only concern is the care, feeding and preservation of doogie, it's easy to make those cuts and justify those bonuses.

It takes a lotta high-priced gop-slime liars to keep Vermonters away from the facts, cause if they ever get together, doogie's toast.

Gee, you've got yourself some huevos grande there, little fella.

It takes some serious stones to anonymously trash the troopers like that. Your back must just be killin' ya from luggin' those things around all the time, little nameless-nitwtit fella.
 
Do you even have a job loser? Or are you part of the unemployed blogging bathrobe brigade?
 
Too bad all the Vermont bloggers in Denver are all left-wing Obama supporters. It would be nice to hear their comments on the latest actions of the Obama Nazi Storm Troopers to shut down a radio station talk show host who has finally uncovered the secret documents concerning Obama and Bill Ayers and their plans for Chicago. The Obama thugs are ordering their lackies to flood the radio show to prevent the host from revealing what he has found out. Oh well, Chicago dimocrats at their best.
 
I guess Bubba can't talk about the issues, so he just makes up stuff.
 
No way, No How, Nobama
 
If you think it's made up why don't you check today's Drudge Report on the Obama Storm Troopers' efforts to silence station WGN's Stanley Kurtz. I realize the Obama drones don't want to hear anything about Ayres, Dohrn, Wright, and Rezko, but, hey sometimes it just gets out!
 
Yea, the ultra-right-wing Drudge Report would never tell a lie.
 
4 more years in the White House !!!

100 more years in Iraq !!!
 
The Drudge report merely headlines events occuring around the world with no editorial comment. Of course, like FOX News, they often incur the wrath of the drooling hydrophobic left-wing nuts (i.e., jwcoop)that don't believe in freedom of the press!
 
False. Drudge lies. He lies often. He's lied about the number of dead soldiers in Iraq. He's lied about Democratic campaign contributions. He's lied about the Plame leak case ... he lies all the time.

Bubba would rather not think for himself ... so he just vomits up what has been spoon fed to him by the ultra-right wing media.
 
Bubba,

Good work. Check this article in the Washington Time on B.O.'s voting record as a state senator. Tough to believe but he leans farther left than Bernie S.

http://www.washtimes.com/news/2008/aug/28/obama-votes-in-illinois-cast-left-of-party/

Captain America
 
McCain votes with Bush 95% of the time ... when he shows up. McCain actually has the worst attendance record of ANY US Senator.

Hard to believe that someone who never shows up to work would ask for a promotion -- but that's the John McCain way!
 
Why is Douglas giving his advisors $10,000 bonus checks at the same time he's cutting funding for state colleges?

The Vermont state colleges are the least funded in the nation ... and now Douglas is going to cut their budgets even more?

Why do his advisors deserve $10,000 bonus checks when the average Vermonter is struggling to make ends meet?
 
Coopy spews "Sure, that's where I always go for all my alien baby news needs, bubble boy."

..and I thought your reading list was limited to the National Enquirer and the daily Democratic talking points.

Because Doogie couldn't have put them in that position without them.

Naw Jiffy, you're their boy. They love trolls and you are the king when it come to trolling.

Wordsmith like you, I bet they'll have you writing all of the news for the print edition too.

Keep pissing into the wind buddy.

Perhaps "Rambo" jw could tell us about HIS military record (should have been in the 70's?) seeing as how he is always denigrating true war heros (i.e., McCain, the Swift Boaters). Like the coward Dean, I'm sure someone else took his place.
 
OK Terri Hallenbeck, Sam Hemingway and Nancy Remsen. On your toes.

It's time for another day of obeying the word of Jeff W. Cooper.

Remember kids it's his way or the highway. His words are not opinion but indisputable truth. If he tells you that down is now up and up is now down you jolly well better agree and be quick about it.

The three of you have been making him do all the heavy work but that is over and done with now. From hear on out you need to be sure you are working towards his greater glory and posting in the Cooper style.

Get busy memorizing and using these examples of Jeffrey W. Cooper wisdom:

You're dumb, you're scum and ya got bupkis

ignorant anonymous ass

clueless-cretin contention

Gee, you're gonna have to speak up, schmuck

In other words, you don't have a case or a clue and ya don't know what the hell you're talkin' about

Thanks for clearin' that up

Take it where the climate suits your sheet, schmuck

Disappear

Dismissed

neo-nazi nitwit

nameless-nitwit legion of loons

Why do you ask, little nameless-nitwit fella?

Stay cold, phony boy

Your ignorant anonymous ass is gonna be spineless slime with bupkis no matter where ya go or what ya call yourself, schmuck

Don't blame me 'cause your ignorant, anonymous ass keeps tippin' it's hand, schmuck

Now grab the pump, put some air in your bride, climb the stairs to the kitchen, take out the garbage, earn your keep and tell your ma I said, hello, little fella

Always a pleasure

I just call ignorant anonymous trash on their ignorant anonymous trash

In other words, you want to return to the thrilling days of yesteryear when this was the all nameless-nitwit nonsense, all the time channel, when your ignorant anonymous asses could fall all over yourselves agreeing with the bubble boy and anonymously attack Doug Hoffer or anyone else who dared to disagree with your brain-dead bigotry and psychotic slop.

Evidently, I'm not repeating myself enough for the ponderously-slow, dimwitted, lunatic-fringe likes of you nameless nitwits, little fella.

Again, just which part of that's just not gonna happen, schmuck, is givin' your ignorant anonymous ass trouble?

I would have hoped I'd apprised and admonished your ignorant anonymous asses of that fact enough for it to sink into your noneskulls before last T-Day.

Clearly, that isn't the case.
That's unfortunate for both of us, little fella. I don't like having to repeat myself any more than I like nameless-nitwits with bupkis spewin' the same psychotic gop-slop nonsense over and over and over again.

Again, if you're not the nameless-nitwit in question, get yourself a screen name if ya don't like being lumped with the loon in question. If not, go schtupp yourself and get to the part where I'm supposed to give a damn.

Nice talkin' to ya.

I hate to confuse ya with the facts

Clearly, your ignorant anonymous ass is an adherent of the utterly- psychotic "shoot first, spellcheck later", school of thought, little fella

Nice try, little nameless-nitwit fella, but what's sad is that the ignorant anonymous trash likes of you "thinks" you possess the capacity for rational thought and know up from down, clown

Christ, how many do you gopologists need, nitwit?

Yeah. And. Ya wanna hurry up and get to the part where I'm supposed to give a damn, little nameless-nitwit fella?

Yeah, I think my nephew can handle threats of legal action from clueless-cretin complainants anonymously alleging they were slandered or defamed. That's probably as good a warm up exercise for toilet training as any, little nameless-nitwit fella.

Well, based on your woeful knowledge of Fifth Grade Social Studies, bubble boy, evidently, not enough during your formative years, little fella.



You’ve allowed this for months so you must approve. IF you love Coop so much you might just as well take up his style and make the whole Free Press just like him.

Symington and Pollina are even worse!
 
They will band together to beat Douglas.
 
By gum, because we deserve that $10,000. We have to work all day trying to find projects for all of Jim's campaign donors, so they can get a nice state contract. Sometimes that means getting rid of some state workers to create new money streams for Jim's business associates. It's hard work with that pesky union and these whiny special interest groups, but Opie, the Cringe, Two N's, and all of us love Jim a lot so we do it. Have to go. Need to get a message out to the mouth organs.

"Naw Jiffy, you're their boy. They love trolls and you are the king when it come to trolling."

They might beg to differ, little nameless-nitwit fella. Just a hunch.

"Wordsmith like you, I bet they'll have you writing all of the news for the print edition too."

I'd be pleased as punch to have them weigh in on that statement, too, little fella.

"Keep pissing into the wind buddy."

Thanks for the tip. Clearly, you speak from a wealth of personal experience on the subject, but logic dictates that I'd have to commence the practice before I could continue it.

Nice try. No sale.

Stay cold, phony boy.
 
By gum guys, you all sound a bit jealous. Bonuses generally aren't gifts. They are a variable part of a person's total pay package. What you don't know is whether or not 100% of the possible bonus was paid or not.

Having said that you too could find a job with a bonus if you want to....go to college, put your nose to the grindstone, advance your career to a level where incentive bonuses are commonly a part of the compensation package. It's called the American Dream but you have to earn it.
 
Has John Edwards shown up in Denver yet? I thought he was supposed to speak on democrat family values.

Reelect the jimi douglas experience - his opponents are even worse. Just don't ask him to explain why.

What's next, show sympathy for the incompetent devil you know!

Give the doo-goo child a slight return!!

Heck of a job, whatever the hell your name is, nitwit.

Always a pleasure.
 
Someone making $100,000 + a year in salary do not deserve a $10,000 bonus at a time when the state is cutting back on judicial services for lack of funds.
 
Yea Bubba, I can't wait for John McCain, Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Foley and Larry Craig give speaches on family values at the GOP convention.

I hear that McCain's 'stance' is as wide as Larry Craig's.

It's about priorities. What do we need more? Big bonuses for bureaucrats in Montpelier?

Or better roads?

Or a properly funded court system?

Or a fully staffed police force?

Douglas chooses the bureaucrats.

Ya got 18 showin', bubbles. Ya want another hit now, too? Fine. It's your funeral, schmuck.

Anyone who has ever run a business knows that you don't give your top people bonuses at a time when you don't have enough money to pay the rest of your workforce.

Doogie would have to give a damn about something besides Doogie to put Vermont first, pal.

Perish the thought.

Doogie needs those clowns and a campaign chest loaded with loot to convince enough people that he gives a damn about something other than doogie when he's spent the past six years proving that he doesn't.

Deception on that scale don't come cheap and ya can't expect the campaign to pick up the tab when he can stick Vermonters with the cost of his incompetence.

He's a gop for Christ sake. They get merit badges for that kinda crap. If he had any integrity, they'd rip off his stripes and drum him out of the party.
 
JIFFY HAS SPOKEN!!!!!!!

Adult basic education Jiffy, look into it.

That and getting your meds adjusted might do wonders for your basic reading comprehension skills.

Until then stick to “Pat the Bunny”, “Goodnight Moon” and other materials better suited to your abilities.
