Take them out for a ballgame

Independent and third-party candidates always have a tough time getting major-party candidates to let them join in their reindeer games. Just ask Peter Diamondstone, who's due in court Sept. 11 on charges related to his efforts to play in the debate game in Waitsfield last month.

Here's a creative approach from independent gubernatorial candidate Sam Young:




"Sam Young, an independent gubernatorial candidate from West Glover, has
issued a challenge to all of his opponents to play ball. In the spirit of
non-partisan politics, Young has invited all of the gubernatorial candidates,
their staffs, and supporters to join the Northeast Kingdom for a game of
mixed-teams softball. The game is scheduled for Sunday, August 24th at 2 p.m. in
West Glover. The game will be played at the home-field of Dennis and Peggy
Gibson, owners of NEK Balsam.

"Following the softball game, the candidates will take part in a
Question and Answer session at Parker Pie of West Glover, beginning at 6 p.m.
This part of the event will be moderated by Bethany Dunbar of the Barton
Chronicle. Questions will be collected from Vermont voters via e-mail to the
Chronicle and earlier in the day at the softball game."

It almost sounds too quaint for the other candidates to turn down.

******Update*********

Young says Anthony Pollina and Tony O'Connor have RSVP'd in the affirmative. Gaye Symington will be in Denver with the Dems and Jim Douglas' people have not returned several phone calls.

*************Uodated update*******

Douglas campaign manager Dennise Casey says she was in touch relatively immediately with Young's people about the idea. While they're not sure yet if Douglas is available for a few pop flies, the staff wants in, Casey said.

Young acknowledges that he spoke too soon about the Douglas campaign lack of contact.

The governor will require a hitting tee and a very large batting helmet to protect his giant cranium. He would also like to wear a suit while playing.
 
Douglas has wingtip cleats.
 
How about reporting some real news such as who does your hair Terri?
 
Reindeer games. Cool.
 
Make sure you remember to put Neale's bicycle helmet and coil leash on before taking him to the ball field. He likes to wander.
 
Will Laroche be Douglas' pinch hitter?
 
I have a wall size poster of Jim posing with his favorite balls and bats.
 
Douglas should skip the ball game and figure out why he still hasn't transfered any state troopers to the Special Investigative Units for sex crimes.

I guess he still thinks that sexual crimes against children are someone else's problem.

They are. They're the problem of Vermonters and whatever elected officials we can find to give a damn about us and the problems we face in return.

Clearly, the jimi douglas experience ain't on the bill.
 
Like Symington, Sears and Shumlin have really taken the lead on this issue.

Coopy, you really need to think beyond the official talking points you are allowed to cut and paste from.

A smart guy like you should be capable of critical thought.

"Like Symington, Sears and Shumlin have really taken the lead on this issue."

Gee, I really hate to keep confusin' your ignorant, anonymous ass with the facts, little nameless-nitwit fella, but given the fact that the names you've cited are all currently members of Vermont's Legislative Democratic Majority and as none of them are currently members of Vermont's Executive Branch which has been and it remains the responsibility of the executive branch to enact and enforce the law, your clueless-cretin comments are, once again, not relevant to the matter at hand, so, once again, the only thing you've managed to do is to make it abundantly clear that you remain dumb, you remain scum and your ignorant anonymous ass continues to have bupkis no matter how often ya keep posting the same psychotic slop.

Clearly, the third time wasn't the charm, either.

Clearly, given your extensive body of work, those facts have never been in dispute and remain self evident.

Moreover, sadly, for the past six years, Vermont's executive branch has been comprised solely of incompetent, unqualified gop-slime.

"Coopy, you really need to think beyond the official talking points you are allowed to cut and paste from."

In other words, you want me to ditch the facts, chuck the evidence, eschew reality and deal exclusively in the factually-challenged/fundamentally-dishonest, psychotic slop that remains the sum total of your ignorant anonymous ass's act, follow your lunatic-fringe lead and lie my ass off like you and your coalition of the clueless-cretin comrades.

Thank, little fella, I'll pass.

"A smart guy like you should be capable of critical thought."

Well, given the fact that your undeniably diminished capacities exempt you on all counts, at least that's one series of allegations your ignorant anonymous ass will never face, little fella

Just the facts, ma'am.

Always a pleasure.
 
Thanks little Jeffy.
 
Thanks little Jeffy.
 
Gee, good thing your ignorant anonymous ass can get beyond posting the same delusional dreck talking points over and over and over again along with my name, little factually-challenged/fundamentally-dishonest/nameless-nitwit fella.

Always a pleasure.

You mean you Jiffy?
 
Nice cuttin' and pastin' Coopy. Really, it is okay to stray from the talking points.
 
Ya mean like your ignorant anonymous ass is doin' now, little fella?
Nice try.

Always a pleasure.
 
I don't think you can find where this has been posted in this form before, JW. Prove your statement little guy.
 
Your ignorant anonymous ass already did it for me, deducebag.

Always a pleasure.

Well, those terms certainly capture the essence of your ignorant anonymous ass, little jerry, so if you're more comfortable being referred to as such, suit yourself, little fella.

Always a pleasure.

That'll be music to Little jerry slimeball's ears when your ignorant anonymous ass informs him of that, little nameless-nitwit fella.

Always a pleasure.

Make up your mind Jerry. Am I you, the other Jerry, a different Jerry or not a Jerry.

BTW the planet X gag is great. It's about time you came up with some good material for a change.

Like I keep tellin' your ignorant anonymous ass, little fella, you're still dumb, you're still scum and your ignorant anonymous ass is still gonna have bupkis no matter what ya call yourself or where ya do it.

Is that still too fast for ya, little fella? If so, that's a shame. I'm not gonna dumb it down for your ignorant anonymous ass's consumption any more than that.

"BTW the planet X gag is great."

Just tryin' to accommodate your ignorant anonymous ass and make ya feel at home, little fella.

I hate to see ya floppin' and flounderin' around like an invertebrate outta ooze, slug-go.

Clearly, life with those of us who walk upright has been tough on your ignorant anonymous ass and it's not gonna get any easier for ya come November, nitwit.

Always a pleasure.
 
Well Jerry while you've failed to deal with your cob up on the whole Jerry Story you were kind enough to fess up to the planet X story being one of yours.

Like I keep telling you Jer. You're an idiot. No amount of your blowhard cut and paste jibberish will change that.

Must be your got Jereen to write the Ppanet X material for you.
 
Sorry Jer, that was supposed to say Planet X

"Well Jerry while you've failed to deal with your cob up on the whole Jerry Story you were kind enough to fess up to the planet X story being one of yours.

Your ignorant anonymous ass is talkin' to itself again, little jerry slimeball.

So, even the other members of the none klan won't listen to your delusional dreck any more.

Gee, I'm shocked.

You'd best stick to anonymously postin' other people's names while periodically makin' threats to harass their wives by name in print, little jerry.

You're good at that sort of thing, little fella. Clearly, anything requiring smarts or stones is beyond you, so your ignorant anonymous ass best stay within your clueless-cretin comfort zone, little jerry slimeball.

That's your best bet, little fella.

Nameless nitwits with bupkis really should know their limitations.

Beyond that, you're too fookin' stupid to get what it is that ya don't get, little fella.

No matter where ya go, what ya do or where ya do it, little fella, you're always gonna be dumb, you're always gonna be scum and you're always gonna have bupkis you can't substantiate and frequently can't spell.

I can set my watch to it.

Always a pleasure.
 
""Well Jerry while you've failed to deal with your cob up on the whole Jerry Story you were kind enough to fess up to the planet X story being one of yours.

Jer for over two years you have been unable to sort out that I am not Jerry.

Now for whatever reason you seem to think I am you.

In a way I can see how a simp like you might get confused sorting one unknown party from another but I would expect you might have some slight inkling as to who your own fictional creations are.

Is that right? Your ignorant anonymous ass is talkin' to itself again, little fella. Work out your ignorant anonymous trash identity crisis on your own time, sport.

You nameless-nitwits with bupkis don't know what day it is and are cluelessly sleepwalkin' through life on your best day, little fella. You're not havin' your best day. You're too dumb to get what it is ya don't get, punk.

You're dumb, you're scum and ya got bupkis no matter what ya call yourself or where ya do it, little fella.

"Now for whatever reason you seem to think I am you."

I do, eh? Nice try, little fella.

Always a pleasure.
 
OK Jer, you win. Everybody in the world is Jerry. Jerry is everywhere. Everyone is Jerry but Michael J Fox.

Unless his middle name is Jerry.

I'll run down to DMV and talk to Jerry about getting my licence changed so my name will now read "Jerry, Jer. Jerhansen.

Give my regards to Jerry and remember me to Gerald Square.
 
"OK Jer, you win. Everybody in the world is Jerry. Jerry is everywhere. Everyone is Jerry but Michael J Fox."

Well, I'm happy to hear that you've worked out your inner conflict issues, little fella.

Now your ignorant anonymous ass can get back to doin' what it does best - spewing psychotic slop you can't substantiate and frequently can't spell, repeatedly posting my name, address, phone, e-mail and google map directions to our place while periodically threatening to harass or harm my wife by name anonymously and just generally being ignorant trash with bupkis no matter what ya call yourself or where ya do it.

Clearly, that's why the Good Lord put ya here, little fella.

Always a pleasure.
