The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves. — Lenin

PUMA (“Party Unity My Ass”) is purportedly a group of Hillary supporters who won’t give up. They want — well, I don’t know what they want. I’m not convinced they’re on our side at all. Here’s something terribly important that the whole WORLD needs to know. I don’t know about (some of) the women who consider themselves “members,” but the FOUNDER of PUMA is a McCain supporter:

I believe that the Republicans are cheerful rat-fuckers and therefore would not hesitate to set up a secretive operation of people running around claiming to be Clinton voters who are voting for McCain to keep the legend of the PUMAs alive.

And the world asks: “Aw, whatsamatter, honey, cantcha take a little over-familiarity?”

Well, no, thank you very little. We can’t take a little over-familiarity — OR joke about our rights and about sexism, for that matter.

For starters, just try to imagine Obama calling a male reporter of any age “Sweetie.” That should give you your first clue: it’s sexist, dammit!

Second, try to imagine (more…)
