We wish we as a site existed in 2006 to stop the DNC from taking the Democrat nomination for president away from Hillary Clinton and awarding it to Obama — if we had an internet presence then, we would have done everything we could think of to derail Obama’s campaign before it ever began, before the DNC decided to make him the next president. We will forever be haunted by the fact that we can never have the last four years to do over again.
So, every day we want to do as much as possible to prevent Obama from winning a second term. His radical agenda must be stopped. We will put every idea we have for preventing his re-election out there, and ask for as much creative support as possible to do whatever we can to stop all those who are either pushing for Obama, or who are backing Republicans we know have no chance in Hell of beating Dr. Utopia.
We believe the RNC is already conspiring to make Mitt Romney or Tim Pawlenty the 2012 Republican nominee — this would be an unmitigated disaster, as we do not believe either of these man can beat Obama. If not Romney and Pawlenty, the RNC appears to be pushing Mitch Daniels, John Thune, and John Huntsman as well.
All of these men are about as exciting and energizing as soggy cucumbers-and-mayonnaise sandwiches on Wonderbread, dipped in skim milk and served on frilly doilies. They are all natural born losers.
Anyone who wants to see Obama defeated needs to stop the RNC from doing to Sarah Palin what the DNC did to Hillary Clinton — namely, screw her out of the party’s nomination.
We will repeat the cucumbers-and-mayoinnaise Vichyssoise Republicans line as much as possible between now and 2012 — until it sticks against Romney and the other half dozen political dwarves the RNC, DNC, and Lamestream Media dream of pitting against Obama in a losing contest.
We would like to have a few images of these men to use going forward, which we hope will become iconic and spread through the web. Here’s what we’d like to see, for all those with the photoshop skills to put something together:
(1) We’d like to see a set of cucumbers-and-mayonnaise sandwiches that have been cut with a gingerbread man cookie cutter, so they look like little men. These men are all holding hands in a straight line, like the men in a chain of paper dolls. The little sandwich men are displayed on a fancy table setting of some kind, like that found at a country club. There are stacks of regular cucumbers and mayonnaise sandwiches on the table as well…additionally, there is a jar of mayonnaise, some whole and sliced cucumbers, and a carton of skim milk on the table. The carton of milk has a “WANTED” picture on one side, where the MISSING CHILD picture is on some milk cartons. The WANTED picture is Sarah Palin…and under her picture there’s the wording “Sarah Palin — The Candidate Who Can Actually Beat Obama in 2012″. If you can come up with a better tagline, please add to the thread.
(2) In another version of this, the sandwiches are whole, but the faces of Romney, Pawlenty, Thune, Huntsman, and Daniels are all watermarked on the bread…or otherwise appear, as if their faces are made of sandwich bread. These sandwiches are on a tray in the Oval Office…with Obama sitting at the Resolute Desk, with his feet up, preparing to devour them all. If that’s too hard to pull off, just a tray of the sandwiches with these men’s faces on them would work.
(3) A picture of Romney, Pawlenty, Thune, Huntsman, and Daniels all in a 50s retro kitchen, making cucumber and mayonnaise sandwiches, and making a big mess fumbling and bumbling doing it. We can use this in the future as part of a “Sarah Palin’s needed to clean up the mess” meme.
We think the tag “cucumbers-and-mayonnaise-Vichysoisse Republicans” will stick to the Romney bunch.
It’s a proactive, prescient, and preventative strike against the RNC’s efforts to pull that “It’s his turn” sausagefest garbage and award the nomination to Romney, because Republicans are so good at losing, why stop now.
It’s our sincere hope that both Romney and Pawlenty have sense talked into them between now and 2012 and realize that they won’t win, and that they should both get behind Sarah Palin now, and help her run her general election campaign from Day One, never having to bother with a contested primary. Obama will be running his general election campaign from Day One as we don’t anticipate Hillary Clinton or anyone else challenging him. Thus, while Romney, Pawlenty, and the cucumbers and mayonnaise gang drain Palin’s resources in another “all the boys against the woman” round of primaries, just like the Democrats did to Hillary in 2008, Obama will be sailing towards his re-election with the media working 24/7 to first make Romney or Pawlenty the Republican nominee, and then once that’s secured, kicking into hyperdrive to destroy Romney or Pawlenty as the nominee so that Obama is granted his “historic and unprecedented second term”.
We can stop this, folks.
But we need your artistic help. We need big mouths to help us spread the imagery and branding that Romney, Pawlenty, et al are the Cucumbers-and-Mayonnaise-Vichysoisse Republican gang of losers.
If we do this, we’ll be a step ahead before the rest of the country starts even thinking about 2012.
UPDATE: Thanks to Bijou for our first entry. Keep ‘em coming!
As we have seen repeatedly, for something to catch on with the public, there needs to be a visual people can see that makes the story stick.
Rahm Emanuel’s attack on Congressman Eric Massa, done naked in the Congressional showers, is the sort of thing that illustrates, well, nakedly the true nature of what the Liberal Socialist Democrat party has become. Their naked disregard for the will of the people. Their naked disrespect for anyone who does not share their socialist bent. Their naked inherent destructiveness.
No one wants a gaunt, shriveled, former ballerina to accost him, naked, in the showers, screaming and yelling, ranting and raving.
So, we need a good visual depiction of this — but it’s a real challenge because we need it to be PG-13 at most. Nothing graphic. Perhaps steam clouds can hide the parts of Rahm that only hunky Secret Service agents or people he’s screaming at in gym showers get to see.
There’s quite a list of things the public’s becoming aware of in terms of Rahm Emanuel’s bad behavior”
(1) Sending dead fish to people he doesn’t like
(2) Calling people he’s mad at “f***ing retards”
(3) Screaming naked at men in showers
What will Rahm do next?
Is there a way we can combine all of his bad behavior into one illustration so that it can sink in with the public?
Is there a way to combine all of this with the children’s story “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, because it too involves the nakedness?
Let’s brainstorm ideas for using Photoshop to make this whole Eric Massa Shower Shouting episode worse for Rahm Emanuel…since, because he’s so caustic and explosive, we know it would push Emanuel to strike out at others in the White House and DNC over it, and that will just add gasoline to the fiery Democrat Civil War we believe has already begun.
Maybe an image of regular voters in the shower at their home, and Emanuel pops in, naked, to scream at them, tell them how stupid they are, and shout at them to get behind the Rationing bill?
Perhaps if we can relate what Emanuel did to Massa to what the administration is trying to do to the public, we can make people see how horribly this White House is behaving.
UPDATE: A reader suggested using PSYCHO imagery and we think that’s just brilliant.
(a) Have a voter in a shower behind a curtain like Janet Leigh…but have it be a male voter.
(b) Have Rahm burst through the shower curtain, also nude, pointing his finger and screaming
(c) Steam from the shower or part of the shower curtain covers Rahm’s “Emanuel”
(d) “Emanuel” is a euphemism for “shriveled, nasty, teeny penis”
(e) Use the PSYCHO movie font to say something like “Democrats’ attempts to Rahm through Healthcare Rationing are PSYCHO. Coming soon to a shower at your house”
Keep adding your great ideas to this thread. Together, we can create some winning images like we did with the Martha Coakley incident where her goons pushed that journalist to the ground so she didn’t have to answer questions she didn’t want to deal with.

The new Tim Burton version of Alice in Wonderland is coming out in March. It’s going to be a massive hit (unlike “The Princess and the Frog”, which bombed, its images will indeed become part of pop culture).
We think it’s smart to start making photoshops of Dr. Utopia as the Queen of Hearts…and all his minions as the various other creatures of Wonderland in service to this queen.
Jabber-Biden just sort of writes itself.
Pelosi and Reid as the Tweedles is another obvious one.
Dr. Utopia is an effeminate, radical, lunatic demanding complete control of the country…much like the Queen of Hearts as played by Helena Bonham Carter.
We tried depicting Dr. Utopia as Dr. Facilier from the Disney cartoon “Princess and the Frog”, because that character was clearly based on Utopia visually, but so few people actually saw the movie that it never registered who we were lampooning.
Things will be different with Burton’s Alice…a movie about Alice’s quest to bring down the evil queen and restore freedom to Wonderland.
The Golden Age of Hope and Change under this madman is as surreal as any “wonderland”.
Both Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin can take the role of Alice…though Palin will be the one most likely to come face to face with the Queen of Hearts in 2012.
We think we can do serious damage to the White House with this imagery…so we’re trying to get ahead of this before the public sees the movie so the images stick.
If you can start work on some good images, email them to us at HillBuzz@gmail.com
This is the biggest Photoshop challenge we have ever run…and we want to use this as a resource for anyone trying to take down the Left in this fall’s election.
A few days ago, we talked about an idea someone sent us about doing a whole riff on Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, but using Dr. Utopia as “Snow Job” and picking seven terrible Democrats to be his “Seven Dunces”. We love the concept…but want to make it more applicable to ALL the terrible Democrats, all 59 of them in the Senate, as well as all the really bad ones in the House.
We don’t have a good name for all of this yet, but it fits in with the storybook Chrissy-the-Hyphenated made for The Twelve Days of Obamamas. Dr. Utopia, depicted as part Dr. Facilier from the Disney Princess and the Frog movie (which based that villain on Dr. Utopia, appearance wise), riding a unicorn, in an enchanted forest filled with little, greedy, idiots…each one with a name that represents that particular Senator or House Member.
This is going to be a HUGE PROJECT…as there are so many of people involved.
Maybe we can take them 10 at a time…making a picture for each person, and selecting a unique Dwarf-type name for them. Instead of Happy, Grumpy, Sleepy, etc., you’d have Slutty (Ben Nelson), Dingy (Harry Reid), Twitchy (Nancy Pelosi), etc.
We could start using these as our go-to photos for each of these people, as well as make collages and other art with them to symbolize the stupid things they do to enable this socialist administration.
How about the below for the first ten:
(1) Ben Nelson – Slutty
(2) Harry Reid – Dingy
(3) Nancy Pelosi – Twitchy
(4) Claire McCaskill – Dopey
(5) Evan Bayh – ?
(6) Barbara Boxer – ?
(7) Chuck Schumer – ?
(8) Kirsten Gillibrand – ?
(9) Dick Durbin – ?
(10) Max Baucus – ?
Any idea on good names or which pictures we should use in the photoshops? We need the absolute worst possible photos of these people that make them look the most terrible. Either put a link to the photos in comments below, or send photos and other thoughts to us at HillBuzz@gmail.com
February 6th is Ronald Reagan’s birthday (which, in 2011, will be the day Palin announces her presidential campaign).
February 11th is Sarah Palin’s birthday.
February 12th is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday.
February 22nd is George Washington’s birthday (but in the Old Style calendar, used when Washington was alive, it is February 11th).
We’d love to see an image of Sarah Palin in front of a birthday cake, with the ghosts of Ronald Reagan, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln behind her. We picture them as blue ghosts, like the ones they always had in Star Wars movies, when Obi Wan Kenobi or whomever appeared in ghost form at the end of Return of the Jedi.
Also in the room, we picture a moose, a bald eagle, a husky, and a mamma grizzly…the symbols we want the Palin 2012 campaign to use.
Maybe on the birthday cake, we’d have the icing read, “Happy 46th Birthday to the 45th President”.
Have the cake be a patriotic red, white, and blue.
Put the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence in beautiful frames on the wall.
Maybe have this birthday party set in the Oval Office.
Any other good ideas for the image?
If we do a good enough job on this one, maybe someone could get it to the Governor herself and let her know how much support she has.
PS — any other presidential birthdays in February?
Here’s a photoshop challenge for you artists: come up with some graphics for a slogan we’ve been trying to start for the GOP. “Republicans. Not as evil as you think.”
We got the idea for this last summer, while walking around at Market Days here in Boystown. The Log Cabin Republicans had a booth, which is about all of two times these guys ever show their faces in public at events that aren’t cocktail parties at high-end bars and restaurants. The Log Cabins just stood there, with blank looks on their faces, not engaging any of the people walking by. They had nothing fun or interesting to draw people towards the booth, and were apparently just there to take the abuse heaped on them by low-information fops walking by, who like shouting “You’re evil!” or “Gay Nazis!” at Republicans.
So, we thought, why not turn this sort of irrationality back at Democrats and use the “You’re evil!” stuff to the Republicans’ advantage?
We imagined Republicans using the slogan “Nor as evil as you think”, with all sorts of fun visuals.
(1) Republicans running through fields of flowers
(2) Holding puppies and kittens
(3) Helping little old ladies across the street
Since Market Days is an out of control, wild, street festival, where many people wear costumes, we also thought this “Not as evil as you think” campaign could incorporate all sorts of great costumes, too.
Like Dracula, Frankenstein, and other monsters. Just imagine a pair of vampires running through a field of sunflowers, smiling, with the “Republicans. Not as evil as you think” above it.
For parades like Pride, THAT could be the float. Republicans could be dressed up as all sorts of movie monsters from the classic Universal days, and “Monster Mash” could play as the float passed by.
It’s the same thinking we had with Scott Brown’s Cosmo photo spread. We started calling him “Hottie McAwesome” to embrace the thing Democrats would attack with.
Well, here in Boystown at least, people don’t attack Republicans on policy points: they just call them evil and say they are monsters.
Okay, so why doesn’t the GOP embrace that?
Run a whole ad campaign showing classic movie monsters doing nice things…and use “Republicans. Not as evil as you think” as the tagline.
We’ve tried giving this to the GOP for some time now, and everyone we tell it to laughs and likes it, but then no one ever uses it. So, just like with Scott Brown and “Hottie McAwesome”, we’re just going to start pushing this on our own and see if it takes off.
We think it will help independents and moderates, who have never voted Republican before, get over the cultural bias they have towards “those evil Republicans”, because of how they grew up.
Remember, in our households as kids, we were taught “Democrats are good, and Republicans are evil”.
Well, all things considered, not as evil as we thought, apparently…and we bet the same is true for many, many others out there as well.
You know what would be great, too?
How about a shot of some hot guys in red speedos playing volleyball or something, with the tagline: “Repubicans look great in Speedos too.”
If someone made a great one of that, we’d totally hang it up here at Buzzquarters, we swear!
Anyone up to a photoshop challenge?
Thanks to Maggie for the great suggestion of running a “Hall of the Mountain King” YouTube whenever we talk about dissecting troll comments…but we’d also love a photoshop of a troll dissection itself.
How about using the “Operation” board game graphic…and then showing various things being removed from trolls.
What should those things be?
In operation, they remove “funny bones”, “butterflies in stomach”, etc.
With trolls, what are the tactics they employ that can be creatively identified and graphically represented? What makes them tick?
What should be in the “Troll Dissection” image we can use from here on out whenever we are taking these comments apart, line by line, to show moderates, independents, and conservatives how to beat the Left at their own Psy-Ops games?
PHOTOSHOP CHALLENGE: We need a chart that makes the relationships of trolls attacking us readily understandable
This is an unusual photoshop challenge — which also appeals to people out there who have great organizational and analytical skills.
For the past few days, you’ve helped us assemble clues as to who is attacking us on the Left. This pertains to the January 20th, 2010 libelous claims made against one of us personally on the site TheBigotBasher.wordpress.com, which gave h/t (hat tips) to places like Rumproast.com and Stupidpumas.com, while Daily Kos and DemocraticUnderground spread these libelous attacks against us, and encouraged their readers to call us, on the individual and personal level, RAAACIST! in as many places as possible.
They outed one of our real names. They used a real photo of one of us. They called that person a racist, knowing full well his current and future employment would be impacted by this charge, and that his personal safety in a city like Chicago would be jeopardized.
The problem with so many clues is that it’s hard to piece the puzzle together to figure out what is going on and who is involved.
Here are threads that have a great deal of clues in them:
We need help creating a diagram of what’s been happening, who’s involved, and how this all is tied back to the DNC and Obama White House. That last bit is the hardest nut to crack, but we believe our sleuthing will indeed get there.
Visually, if we can chart out the sites involved and what they did, we can use this as a case study of how these attacks are coordinated and planned, and that’s the first step towards developing an effective counter-punch to use against these goblins in the future.
The chart of everything that’s been happening, and everyone involved, is crucial to our ability to write up a complete report on all this — and that report is needed not just for the litigation against the parties involved, no matter what country they are in, but will also serve as a primer for anyone else out there who is attacked like this.
In short, we can do the legwork, set up the battle plan, and write a chapter in the Anti-Alinsky Playbook so that whenever these attacks happen, people don’t have to keep re-inventing the wheel.
We’d like to collect all clues in this one thread, so anything else you can add about the attackers, please do so in comments here. This way, we won’t have to keep scouring through many threads to get to the meat of what’s needed. It can all be in one place.
UPDATE: Here are more clues:
STUPIDPUMAS Twitter feed has mysteriously disappeared as of 1/25/10. Here’s a link to the Twitter search that shows it existed until recently. Why would this just mysteriously disappear if the people behind StupidPumas weren’t in on the attacks on us?
This is the current WHOIS for the site Rumproast.com — it was scrubbed and changed just a few days ago. ANOTHER mysterious coincidence.
The owner of Rumproast is a man in New York named Kevin K*******. We’ll just call him Kevin K.
We have the registration for Rumproast before Kevin K. changed it to private just a few days ago. It looks like this:
XX-XX XX Street #C21
Sunnyside, NY 11104
Domain Name: RUMPROAST.COM
Created on: 25-MAR-99
Expires on: 25-MAR-10
Last Updated on: 14-JUL-09
Administrative, Technical Contact:
XX-XX XX Street #C21
Sunnyside, NY 11104
Obviously, we have all the info that’s blanked out as “X” above. We have screenshots of all this in the dossier we are building linking all of these PUMA Hunters together.
They banded together to attack PUMAs…so let them join together as defendants in all things to come.
Rumproast.com was h/t (hat tipped) by TheBigotBasher.wordpress.com as the source of the attack against us. In the January 20th post TheBigotBasher.wordpress.com made (which we won’t link to), at the very bottom was the credit given to Rumproast for launching this attack.
Kevin K. used to work for a now-defunct dot.com called Hot Socket. His linked-in profile says he works for a large advertising firm. The same one Michelle Malkin identified as being behind the astroturf attacks on Sarah Palin in 2008.
Isn’t that a mysterious coincidence?
A lot of times, when Kevin K. writes on the Internet and maligns people, he uses this quote:
Kevin R. XXXXXXX
“Show me a man who was born without a mouth and I will show you
a man who must eat with his nose” — Upton Sinclair (1921)
“TheBigotBasher” appears to be a 39 year old man in England named Sean O’Sullivan, who goes by the name “seanosul” a lot of times on the Internet when he too maligns people
Sean O’Sullivan is obsessed with video games, politics, and consoles.
Here he is on some dating websites in the UK, one of which it appears he lies about his age to score with British guys who will be really disappointed when a 39 year old queen shows up when they were expecting a chicken delivery.
Interestingly enough, it appears this guy’s name MIGHT actually legally be Eamonn Sean O’Sullivan, but he (for obvious reasons) goes by “Sean” instead of Eamonn.
We believe that’s why this guy thinks no one can ever find him, because he thinks people don’t know his real name. Well, his real name may very well be Eamonn. Or possibly Rumplestiltskin.
“TheBigotBasher” also posts sometimes as UKforDems on various boards where he maligns and libels people. Here’s where the connection is made between BigotBasher and UKforDems.
When you Google “UKforDems,” you see the name is all over the Democratic Underground, No Quarter, New Agenda— PUMA hunting.
And here’s a “Sean” on Stupidpumas showing his response to people on No Quarter, under the name “UKforDems” http://stupidpumas.wordpress.com/2009/02/02/stupid-puma-physics/ “sean”…ok.
Thus, Sean O’Sullivan (who is probably Eamonn Sean O’Sullivan) goes under the names: bigotbasher, Sean, seanosol, and UKforDems.
Here’s more weirdness attacking Darragh Murphy:
Here’s his YouTube channel: note the Simpsons videos and things related to Hillary Clinton, Harriet Christian (a famous PUMA we love), and PUMAs. Seanosul is obsessed with “The Simpsons” and writes about them frequently all around the Internets.
Apparently, Seanosul works for the British Government. We wonder if they know what he is up to all day.
Sean O’Sullivan says his job title is: “Benefits Consultant, Independent Local Authority Contractor, West Midlands” which makes sense because he described that kind of work on his windows live blog, and it’s his county. I don’t know, it sounds like social work/ government job/ welfare social worker sort of.
More on Seanosul:
Sean’s birthday is January 13th.
He was from midlands area of England, lived in Brum (short for Birmingham).
On January 25th, Kevin K. from Rumproast started scrubbing as much of his information off the Internets as possible. We took screengrabs of all of this before he could delete it all.
Kevin K. once used the names “Tooney Bin” and “Balloon Juice” on the Internets.
We’re asking all PUMA sites that were ever attacked by TheBigotBasher or any of his cohorts who post at places like Stupidpumas, BettyCracker, Daily Kos, Rumproast, and other sites to share the information they have on these people.
Here’s more that we found today on TheBigotBasher. This guys uses many different email addresses and posts under many names. We’re starting to be able to match his IP address used to attack people, libel them, and harass them on multiple boards. The same addresses keep popping up, with all roads leading back to TheBigotBasher.
Here are some quotes:
“Show up at his house”
“bloody his nose”
“find out where he lives and teach him a lesson”
It goes on and on and on.
The MO on these attacks is this:
(1) BigotBasher posts more racist slurs against us on his site on WordPress
(2) Daily Kos then picks up that post and get its members to encourage people in Chicago to find us, beat us, bloody our noses, and ultimately kill us
(3) Next, DemocraticUnderground and the rest run the Kos post, reporting it as news and fact
(4) The Left, thus, has activated its troll and goon squads to commit physical violence against those it has targeted
This has been going on every day since January 20th, the one year anniversary of the beginning of “The Golden Age of Hope and Change”
Part of getting more people out there involved in hitting back at Liberals is discovering new artistic talent. In the last few weeks, we have been FLOORED by the mad skillz some of you out there have with photoshop and other photo manipulation software. It’s incredible. Many of you have the talent to become political cartoonists, and we hope we can help you get there.
Anytime you read an essay of ours that you think is screaming out for illustration, have at it!
We also want to keep posting these regular Photoshop Challenges to not only see what you can come up with, but get you all ready as a Rapid Response Team, which can spring to action when things are needed in the future on an immediate basis to take take advantage of an opportunity in the news to really lampoon the Left. Remember, the greatest weapon we have against these thugs and bullies is humor. Make them into jokes, and their power crumbles. Technically, they already are jokes, many living in their mothers’ basements, but we just need to get the general public to see this and laugh at them.
For the longest time, we’ve wanted shots of George Soros as a dinosaur/human hybrid. When we hear his name, “George Soros”, we think of it being spelled “George Sauros”, like some kind of creepy T-Rex, Triceratops, or other dinosaur with human features.
The Triceratops would be most fun…because the T-Rexes are overplayed, and Trikes were our favorite dinosaurs growing up. We picture “Sauros” in his lair, plotting and scheming, trying to crash our economy and impose socialism in this country. Like a real life James Bond villain, who is part dinosaur (and, at 80 something, hopefully not that much longer for this world).
Anyone with a great take on “Sauros”, email it to us at HillBuzz@gmail.com
Massachusetts voters are under assault from Liberals on all sides, with Dr. Utopia himself leading armies of the dead to rise from their graves, Thriller-style, to vote for Martha Coakley next Tuesday. ACORN’s forces are marching on Massachusetts like towering Ents in the Lord of the Rings saga: nasty, gnarled, trees like something from the evil forests of Oz. The SEIU’s thugs are heading to Massachusetts to beat union members into submission, forcing them to vote the Liberal line as always, like the deformed taskmasters in service to Xerxes in the movie 300.
There are a lot of ways to symbolize what Liberals are up to in Massachusetts.
How would you do it?
