10th District Convention Today

By Loudoun Insider

I’ll be there but must go elsewhere immediately afterwards.  And I haven’t figured out how to post from my new phone yet.  So have at it here, budding citizen journalists – final predictions, results, and inevitable wacky goings ons.

    George and Monk, I’m right with you. What I saw Saturday was a bunch of leftist brats who didn’t get their way. If Lind reflects the views of those who voted for him, we are well and truly screwed.

    Linda, like your avatar suggests, you’re a nut surrounded by squirrels. You got your boxers in a bunch because I drew a parallel between the progressive-like actions portrayed by you and yours, and the socialist group that shares the same name as your avatar. Get over yourself already.

    Is this guy a Bob Dole wannabe, or what? That is to say, Bob Dole whacked out on some seriously bad stuff.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    New favorite phrase: “the leftist right”.

  • Barbara…The point is that the LCRC rolled out a unity pledge in every attempt to silence their critics on the blogs. It was aimed right at the bloggers in the group.
    As for the videotaped affair, there was a technician in the room, and the door was religiously maintained and locked , with a few spans when it remailed ajar while stuff was bustled in.
    And as long as you were over 40 to 80 miles away, perhaps you should just shut the hell up about what went on (since you don’t have a clue about the actual logistics, and it appears that Call me George was practically under Greg at the time, while I was directly across an aisle, myself.)

    As Eric Cartman says: “I do what I want”

  • Edmund, I’m with LI on this one….I really like “Full” Wingnut, as opposed to partial wingnut. I’m probably a “partial” wingnut…but these folks go ful wingnut, and that phrase is just too funny.

    At least I have the balls to call out problems within my own party in order to improve it. Your type defends yours until it’s so far left, you may fall off the planet, a la the flat earth society. There’s probably a 12-step program for that, edmund, but you must first admit you have a problem.
    .
    Let me know if you need a sponsor.

  • Linda B says:

    This thread has it all, from soop to nuts one might say. Ravi, I do hope you’ll share your saying with all of us, as at this point that is the only reason I am continuing to check in.

  • Call Me George says:

    Hey, looky what I found. And guess who came to mind when I read it? Edmundbaconator, this one’s for you: http://www.theonion.com/articles/well-it-looks-like-my-work-here-has-been-successfu,17492/

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    Please continue to post Ravi, many blessings from the blogging ladies!

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    George, Eddie has had a long and weary path to a “no-man’s land” ideologically and politically. I’ve been through many a battle with Ed over the past 2 (maybe 3) years – we’ve fought continuously, we’ve laughed, cried and almost sang kumbaya a couple times. Several others have as well.
    *
    I still scratch my head over his continued support of Obama – but at least he is consistent. Another thing you can count on is Ed pointing out irony with much needed humor. So, at least he has that goin for him – right Eddie?

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    Dean, spin it how you will.

    Your ego and your need to control made up quite a little narrative, that apparently had zero to do with reality. Unless the new alternate reality is that the zapruder film actually DOES exist, in spite of Ms. Lee’s statement that ain’t nobody there but the sound guy, and “the trusted” of the outgoing regime have determined not to hand it over to anybody, in which case it “officially” doesn’t exist?

    Why not refrain from twisting yourself into any tighter of a knot, and just accept that you ran right over the top with a story entirely in your own imagination?

    As for Cartman, I see the parallels between his approach to the world and yours, but I’m sorry, as I would with him if he were real, I just don’t “respect your authorita!” over me, my thoughts, my first amendment rights, and so on.

    Mainly because, like his, it is totally self-conferred, and often out of touch with reality.

    (I’m getting this terrible mental picture of Butters following you around with a video, while you sing “I am the dawwwwwg! The big big dawwwwwg!” *shudder*, but funny!)

  • “Your ego and your need to control”
    O stopped reading after this ignorant, twisted and damned-close-to-retarded diatribe from someone who has a small echo chamber in her basement and constantly berates me and my associations from the safety of THAT basement.

    Barbara…I have disengaged. They will sink or swim on their own merits in the coming years. I will still be in the mix, but for my candidates…just as I stopped giving money to the NRC…because I could do better with the candidates here than the NRC could from the National level – and as a bonus, I’d know immediately if a “nudie bar” meet-n-greet was in the making. No more funding for the corrupt. Unfortunately, what we cleaned up at the State level of the RPV is now going to be rampant in the 10th district, unless some of the players are removed. And I ain’t talking about Howie.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    “Ignorant, twisted and damned close to retarded diatribe”?

    You mean like this?

    ———————————-
    and from another blog:
    ———————————-
    “Greg, you need to diplomatically ask (well in advance- we do not mean THAT day) to be included in videography that is lisenced. That way , they can get the form to you that says you will NOT edit the tape to malign either of the partipants.”

    ———————————-

    “….we ain’t hiding anything. The 10th already had a videographer assigned”

    ———————————-

    “If you were seated in the center aisle, (as Loudoun was) the video was recording in the office at the back of the Loudoun delegation in the AV room over top of the auditorium.”

    ———————————-

    “Also, since it’s the norm at 10th District consensus events, why is it weird?”

    ————————————

    “Stoner…you should know better. The Wolf Speech, the endorsements, the two candidates speeches…ot’s all recorder for posterity….by a 10th District Videographer who we are ASSURED will never allow it’s contents to be altered or edited.”

    ————————————–

    “Howie is the boss, now. He wasted no time in getting the lists that he needed…within minutes of the announcement. Getting the footage from him should be no problem.
    The footage is not edit-proof. The edit-proofing was in the actual possession of the video by secure parties. Once it has left the possession of the trusted in the Committee, it, too , is supceptable to altering. Now that Howie’s at the helm of the Chain of Custody, if it’s secured and abused ….it’ll be just another ding against Howie (for releasing it).”

    —————————————

    then, after this from a member of the 10th DC:

    “All he had have done was to get permission from the 10th District Committee. The 18 member committee would have considered it. There is a recorded voted by the 10th District committee (11-5) against video taping meetings etc. There was no videographer set up for taping.

    In all fairness of full disclosure, the delegates should have been made aware in advance that the convention would be video taped. That disclaimer could have been put in the official letter that was sent to all the delegates by the chairman.

    Greg had asked for prior approval from the 11th District to video their convention. Why was the 10th District treated differently by him? Simple answer, he wanted to cause this turmoil.

    LL, thanks. To be in no man’s land requires a sense of humor.

    George, back to work.

  • Ravi Oli says:

    Mr. Call Me George, Ravi is a great fan of Bob Dole and learnt to carry a pen from him, so much of the time. Ravi has read your many many posts and likes you Mr. Call Me George, very much indeed. You are like the long-term friend of Ravi, who was always invited to arrive at the party 4 hours after it started. Ravi’s friend had a special gift – he could clear out the party in minutes. Ravi never had to deal with the, how do you say, “linger-longers.” A most valuable skill, Mr. Call Me George.

    And now for the special thing that has been said many times by many people from many places, but especially where Ravi is originally from: Look to the future, because that is where you will spend the rest of your life.

    And for the elders among us: First you forget names, then you forget faces. Next you forget to pull your zipper up and finally, you forget to pull it down.

    Many blessings to all this holiday weekend. Remember the veterans and be thankful that we live in America and are Americans. We may not always agree, but perhaps we can be a bit more respectful.

  • We all read it the first time, dumbass. But since you need SOMETHING to bask in to interrupt the terrible loneliness of being a has-been….go ahead. Enjoy this solitary moment…and then we’ll all move on…again.

    You remind me of the Warlock in the movie Public Enemy. Rockin’ five generators to keep your “command center” up and running with the latest intel.
    And I walk in and toss a few pearls that can keep you rolling around and chasing them for the 8 hours of my day until I arrive back from my J-O-B to toss more.

    bombiraq? Is that you? Could it be that I’ve finally found you after all of these years of searching? Oh, glory be! My pet! My pet!
    .
    So, have you made it out of the looney bin yet, or did you just abscond with the laptop from the nurse’s station again? If it’s just the nurse’s station scenario again, have you at least learned to close the back of your gown?
    .
    I am SO sorry I left the gate open that ONE time, my little bomby. Just goes to show you that it only takes once. What a regrettable mistake on my part.
    .
    And now you’ve changed your name to Ravi. Well, that’s just fine. I hope you don’t mind if I occasionally slip and call you my little bomby, my little bomb-bomb-bombiraq.
    .
    As for the “forgetful” bit of your little soliloquy above, did someone “forget” to take their meds?
    .
    Good to see you again, bomby… oh, sorry, “Ravi” (wink-wink). Gosh, I’m just tickled to know you’re ok… relatively speaking, of course.

  • Ravi Oli says:

    Ah, Mr. Call Me George, You make Ravi laugh! We will be good friends, of this I am certain even though you remind Ravi of the razor blade that longs to shave once again. Alas, it is good that God loves all of his children, even the ones he fashioned from sandpaper. Here is a question for you Mr. Call Me George, when you attempted to date women, were you the one who always tried the pickup line that went, “So, baby, how do you like your eggs, scrambled or fertilized?” Yes, Ravi thought it was you! Oh yes, Mr. George, Ravi feels we are destined to be fast friends! Indubitably.

  • Call Me George says:

    Dr. George in da howse (just trying to relate to the patient).
    .
    Symptoms:
    .
    May 23, 2010
    .
    “george, what’s with the gratutitous reference to Pol Pot? The only person I’ve ever heard toss that into the mix was an old regular at the now-defunct Operative Word.”
    .
    “I filed my paperwork and paid my fee, and my husband forgot all about it and surprised the family with a weekend getaway, from which we just returned.”
    .
    “I’ve heard a few recaps, but the commentary is, as always, fascinating.”
    .
    May 24, 2010
    “My neighbor relayed pretty much the same–that it wasn’t clear what was going on, but that it was something some people were pretty fired up about, and precisely because they couldn’t assess what was happening, they didn’t vote on that item.”
    .
    “It appeared about even to them, and they wished it had been decided by a show of hands or other enumeration for clarity.”
    .
    May 25, 2010
    “Yes, the 10th is a completely unique, special and different place entirely unto itself, for which yes, there must be different rules as time and circumstance allow, simply because of the remarkable sensitivity of the place.”
    .
    May 26, 2010
    .
    “Ladies, FWIW, it may be time to say “Don’t Feed The Trolls”.”
    “george, I don’t care if you agree with me or not.
    ————————————–
    Neither do I care who you are, because as long as you are anonymous, what difference does it make?
    ————————————–
    Yes, I’ve seen real political trolls, and you qualify.
    ————————————–
    Finally, why do you assume you are “the fair-haired boy”? Simply because you’ve arrived, and you’re pissed?
    In Loudoun, all that means is “Take a number”.”
    .
    ““bless your heart” ranks up there with “Oh, How Nice!”
    Welcome to VA, Neanderthal.”
    .
    May 27, 2010
    “I vote for just stand back and let people fall on their faces, while working FOR Wolf (which doesn’t mean AGAINST any folks you dislike who are also working for him).”
    .
    May 28, 2010
    .
    “Your ego and your need to control made up quite a little narrative, that apparently had zero to do with reality.”
    .
    “Oops.
    .
    Dawg.”
    .
    Diagnosis:
    .
    Patient is suffering from a serious case of self-centeredness, also known in females as “C-U-Next-Tuesdayitis.”
    .
    Please note some of the quotes above where the patient assumes to know a new poster to the blog based on a Pol Pot comment. While Pol Pot is not as historically infamous as, say Hitler, he is without a doubt a serious SOB that more than a couple of people have referred to in the past.
    .
    Then there’s the wannabe insightful contributions containing, “I’ve heard a few recaps…,” “My neighbor relayed…,” “It appeared about even to them…” You get the idea. Nothing like that second-hand account to really make you feel like you were right there in the thick of it.
    .
    Also, please see the remark regarding the sensitivity of the 10th district as if it were Mt. Vesuvius. (She’s gonna blow!!!) Perhaps the patient is referring to a Freudian need to figuratively combust, as exampled in most of her posts to strangers and acquaintances, alike.
    .
    In addition, there is the (being polite here) “undercurrent” of authoritativeness. That is to say, the patient is letting everyone know “she’s in charge.” This usually means she can’t control anything in her own life, therefore she must control others. Typically this refers to one’s appetite, physically bad habits like drinking or smoking, or both, and probably letting the house go to hell in a handbasket, as well. If the patient has children, then the patient is smothering in their lives, poor dears. And God help the husband if she’s married – that is one beaten down, emasculated sonofapup. Pity him.
    .
    Lastly, the patient evidently believes she is black (see “Dawg” reference). Disturbing.
    .
    I suspect this may even be a terminal case, if patient doesn’t make some drastic lifestyle changes.
    .
    Cure:
    .
    Like alcoholism, weight problems, drug addictions, etc., this is a chronic problem. There are stages, or “steps,” if you will.
    .
    The first order of business is the patient needs to be removed from society and placed in a padded cell, a la bomb… er, “Ravi.”
    .
    Immediately following is to get the patient laid. And laid often. Since there are usually no volunteers, there are usually only a couple of options: 1. One of the gents needs to “take one for the team,” as it were. She seemed particularly smitten with Neanderthal, but no need to rush into these things; B. Hire a professional. Yes-yes, it’s both illegal and immoral, but just remember it’s for medicinal purposes. Like marijuana.
    .
    There are, of course, ten more steps, but I’ll leave it like this for now and just write a dissertation on it and become world famous. I’ll apply for some grants and be like edmundbendoverandtakeitator and sponge off of the working taxpayers.
    .
    I wish the patient luck since I sincerely doubt the advice will be taken. In these cases, they typically don’t.

    Tell me, bomby-baby, is your collar size still the same? Do you still like the little pink rhinestones? You always were one for bling.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    george, some serious projection going on there.

    I won’t say have fun, because you sure don’t sound happy.

    Too bad.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    Georgie Porgie Puddin Pie, Did you have too much to drink last night?

  • Ravi Oli says:

    Ms. Loudoun Lady, Ravi implores you to excercise the greatest possible degree of caution in engaging Mr. Call Me George. His many references to mental hygeine are very telling. As has been said throughout the ages, where I am from, “When provoking the hornet’s nest, it is best to use a hand-grenade”.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    Ravi, I respect your wisdom, but I say let him rave.

    We are in what danger from an anonymous identity on the internet?

    Zero, other than the hits we’re supposed to take personally.

    The desired result is that we all go away, shut up, and leave things to the self-proclaimed arbiters of a kinder, gentler party.

    As exemplified by “george”.

    I tend to think of him/her as a different phrase–”let george do it”.

    No, thanks.
