Hey, Michele...here it is!

Too bad that Dr. Knuckles guy left. He was a hoot.
Now things are starting to make sense!!
After all these years, I found myself back on the Bizarro Internet. Not sure what happened, but once again I was Republidave and as much as I tried to type cool stuff, it came out as a rant about fake news or paid protesters. It got ridiculous so I just lurked.
Oh god, this one conservative, Bienvenido, was so annoying. Kind of an attention whore who thinks he's SO funny. But apparently he has the blessings of the mods. Even one of decent mods, Duncan, seems to give Bienvenido a pass. Duncan is really cool. He's lobbying the site owner to have mod turn-overs every six months. Everybody wants him to stay on staff, but he insists that the staff needs fresh leadership. Really smart guy.
Actually, the mod staff is pretty cool--that's why I hate having to be Republidave so much. Like, for example, I'm Beast...she's probably one of the smartest people I've run into on the internet. She and her boyfriend who's also a member are really cool. Cute couple. And Stomper is brilliant. Another cool liberal. And with jerks like the ultra reactionary StawJan...well, it's good to have some balance on mod staff.
Probably one of the coolest libs over there is Cayenne. Despite Bienvenido's best efforts at trolling, Cayenne is like three steps ahead of him. Really sharp and genuine.
Beryl is an odd one. She keeps claiming to be right-winger after a life as a liberal. But Bienvenido and Redneck keep catching her holding liberal positions.
Glad to be back on the normal Internet and being Davocrat again.

I keep getting bumped to Bizarro Internet...
Earlier today MissouriMud was giving Duncan shit about his moderation. She was just pissed off because Duncan wasn't giving Trump supporters enough leeway. But Duncan, wise as ever, explained the whole situation, only to be piled upon by MissouriMud, Clamshell, Buddha--with her stupid dog avatars--Coal Furnace and Saturday13th. They were actually pissed off that Duncan was holding moderator elections, even though they oppose everything he ever did.
Cayenne weighed in on Duncan's behalf and made a really reasonable case that managed to shut down MissouriMud who had recently been accused of stalking LockmanJuan, one of the more eloquent liberals on the site. Some think he's a sock for EveryoneknowswhoIam. But I doubt that. They're both really cool guys.
So the bizarro Political Hotwire never ceases to amaze me. Frustrating as always, because everything I type comes out as RepubliDave saying something about how Trump won because the liberals outlawed Big Gulps and that right wing idiot Bienvenido is always sidling up to me making me look even dumber. Last night he tried to skirt the site's word blocker by typing racial epithets in pig latin. That lasted for about 10 minutes and Jeff Ianeries, the righty mod gave him a one day ban after Cayenne of all people weighed in on Bienvenido's behalf. She's a lot more patient than me. She's amazing. To top it off, she posted some photos in the member photo gallery of her with her grandkids, but, man, she looks like Maureen Dowd!
BUT THEN, Chunk the site's owner stepped in and declared a new zero tolerance on racial epithets. Chunk's great as an admin/owner. The site runs great and if you ever have a problem or question, he jumps right on his PMs. He's even nice to RepubliDave and I'm a fucking idiot over there.
