Political and topical news and commentary
I've never seen so many stupid comments!
Published on October 15, 2008 By adnauseam In US Domestic

I am shocked at the inane, insensitive comments posted on JU about the upcoming election. Here are some of the things that irk me:

 

Many bloggers (and you know who), seem to to relate Obama with a certain Mr Ayers. Like old gossip-knitters terms proceed from Ayers to activists to terrorists. Ridiculous assumptions are made, stupid accusations spread and 1,2,3 Barack is hiding in the same cave as Bin Laden.

I do not include all JU bloggers in my condemnation but I do include some who I thought were wiser. Here's a sample ("One thing to concider(sic), McCain would never intentionally harm America where as (sic) Obama would sell us out to the highest bidder." This comment is inflammatory, uninformed and defamatory. What proof exists for this comment? It is definitely not written in jest. On the other hand, I apologise if it was written by a twelve year old!

There are other examples--read unitiated. I'm just sick of people coming to conclusions they've never thought about at all.

I realise this is a free forum as it should be, and comments can be as open as necessary but surely we can put some intelligent thought into our comments (humor always welcome, of course). 

I will not delve into the election but be prepared for the "Sell-out" man to win!

Well, I have to say Adnauseam that I am a bit disappointed in you in that you wrote an article about the truth but only point towards one side of the guilty parties.

How many times has McCain been insulted as well on this site? How many times has Palin been compared to the devil, a monster or a baby killer? How come if people here agree with McCain and/or Palin they must be ignorant and/or stupid?

Like you, I, too, would have considered you wiser than to write an article about "inflammatory, unimformed and defamatory" comments about 1 candidate instead of both. But I guess I was wrong.

There's an old saying in Puerto Rico (one of many I know):

"Un muerto hablando de un olcado (colgado)." Basically it means hypocrit.

You seem to have a liking for Obama.  But I note that you did not post any of the comments made about Palin.  Obama comments are tame in comparison (and that is just here at JU).  Selective outrage?

OK, Charles, Hypocrite here is a little vague. It means you change your mind (to be brief) and without reason. I have not swung my attention away from Obama. Furthermore I don't care what you say about McCain. I would be a hypocrite if I thought McCain was insulted as badly. He hasn't. My point was that Obama is accused of selling Americans out. Who said that about MCCain?  

Sarah Palin is an embarrassment to MCCain and I cannot, for the love of me, figure out why  he chose her.

Well that's obvious considering you article was about people on JU insulting Obama not both Obama and McCain. God forbid you would actually say something along the lines of "not that McCain has not gotten his fair share of insults" to be fair. After all, isn't that what people who support Obama are about? Fairness?

Furthermore I don't care what you say about McCain.

Of course, why would you. To acknowledge anything I say would mean I am correct and we can't have that on you article, right?

I would be a hypocrite if I thought McCain was insulted as badly.

Oh heaven forgive that McCain gets his fair share of negative ads and reporting. But then in the media itself showed McCains gets 57% of negative reporting while Obama only gets 29% LINK. I guess you woild have to be a hypocrit then.

My point was that Obama is accused of selling Americans out. Who said that about MCCain?

Well let's see, he wants to instill European values and even Jesse Jackson himself feels he is selling out his own Black people. He has distanced himself from everyone he once deamed a friend, a co-worker, his mentor and even people he supported once. Sounds like a sell out to me.

Sarah Palin is an embarrassment to MCCain and I cannot, for the love of me, figure out why he chose her.

That's an opinion, something you are entitled to. But lets stick to facts here, not wet dreams. Palin does not have to appeal to every American, that's just impossible. You don't like her? That's OK, this is a Democracy and we get to vote for who we want and you know what? You don't always get what you want. But if you wanna look to embarrasment, look no further than the Democrats who can't seem to keep their mouths shut. Clinton praising (and almost hitting on ) Sarah Palin, Murtha calling Pennsylvanians Racist and Rednecks and Biden, this guy is one hell of a catch, questioning Obama's VP choice and telling people Obama will be tested as if he feels Obama may not be up to the challenge. Then there's is your holy candidate Obama who clearly stated he wants to "spread the wealth". You have a really interesting opinion about embarrasment.

I have to ask a stupid question, please bear with me.  What is JU.  I've been leaving coments through ThePoliticalMachine website.  Is JU a different site or what?  I feel a little like a dummie every time I see JU.

It is a free blog site Brad set up.  many of the articles posted on TPM are cross posted and vice versa.

the address is www.joeuser.com (I know, a real duh there).
