Typical Obama supporterPUMAPac FOUNDER HARRASSED BY DEAD BUNNIES: Darragh Murphy, one of Hillary Clinton’s most passionate advocates and the founder of a political action committee devoted to getting her elected or something, “said Obama supporters have harassed her and her followers by banging on their windows with pots and pans in the middle of the night, making phone threats and leaving dead rabbits on their doorsteps.” Yoiks.

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Terry

    How does she know it’s Obama supporters? Are there little hijabs on the bunnies?

  • ManchuCandidate

    Considering the level of crazy coming mostly from the diehard PUMAs, shouldn’t the dead bunny and stupid antics be the other way around?

    For the last two months it’s been pretty much, Hilsbot who? Who cares about the poor PUMAs. After reading the internal campaign memos from her campaign, it’s pretty obvious that the Demrats chose wisely. If the PUMAs want some of that major incompetence then they’re more than happy to have it.

  • Botswana Meat Commission FC

    Is there any animal that straddles the line between cute and delicious as well as the rabbit? I think not.

  • Servo

    They just don’t get it. Little wonder why they’re single. Fuck banging pots and pans, a 105mm Howitzer is a much better prescription.

  • RuperttheBear

    Isn’t it called COUGARpac?

  • Electric Zen

    Wow, I didn’t believe that stuff before about Clinton and the Hilltards being the victim of a vast, left-wing, misogynistic conspiracy, but I guess the bunny story proves they were right all along.

    Also, I’m looking for a bassist for my new alt-punk group, Clinton and the Hilltards. Tryouts are 3pm tomorrow. We need a hot chick who can play well. It’s OK if you can’t play well.

  • Delicious

    Dead rabbit? Is Hillz pregnant?

  • RuperttheBear

    [re=58420]Electric Zen[/re]: I think all the cool musicians are playing for Stephen Cohen and The Jews.

  • donner_froh

    [re=58420]Electric Zen[/re]: Bassist who plays well–does that mean knowing three chords or four?

  • CrunchyKnee

    I got nothing…but a hangover.

  • Airborne Toxic Event

    Those weren’t bunnies, they were squirrels. Stupid fucks.

  • PeteJayhawk v2.0

    Either bang on the windows or bang on the pots and pans…but banging on the windows with pots and pans just seems like overkill to me.

  • freakishlystrong

    PUMApac: Fatally Unattractive..

  • EnBuenOra

    Wait — how do we know that these aren’t the same people leaving dead bunnies on doorsteps like they did the anonymous blogger cited by Pam Atlas Juggs who was being threatened for ‘proving’ that Barack Obama’s birth certificate was fake and that he was really born in Indonesia and also in Al Qa’ida and also in the World Trade Centers on 2001?

  • Diadhuit

    Come on, I have been leaving dead bunnies for these crazies since 2002!

  • Elitist Republican Tard

    “[PUMAPac has] 10,000 members and has raised $50,000”

    Um… let me do the math here . . . hang on . . wait … carry the one…

    That’s only like a $5 commitment per member. Or, nationwide, out of a pool of 18 million bitters or whatever, only 500 people cared enough to donate even $100?

  • JadedDIssonance

    I bet someone in the area just wanted to welcome the Pumas to the neighborhood! I like to leave my neighbors cookies all the time. The PUMAs were upset that they missed the excitement of the chase and kill.

  • The Incomparable Tiny Valdez

    Ms. Murphy, a mother of three who lives outside Boston, believes that the only way to save the Democratic Party at this point is to destroy it. Mr. Obama must lose, and his supporters must be purged.

    Hell hath no fury like a Hilltard scorned!

  • Makeithurt

    Oh that’s great. Anarchist old Gen-X’ers still into grunge and wheat grass juice swinging dead bunnies around — such classy kids O-TowelHead’s followers are. Real class. Wonder when they’ll ever get out of Community College and move out of their parents’ basement?

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=58439]JadedDIssonance[/re]: yeah! Heck, in cat language, bloody carcasses are love tokens.

  • graceless

    Have they called the police? Was anybody arrested? Or are they just lying? Please people, somebody call, BULLSHIT!

  • Doglessliberal


    1) I happen to think community colleges are truly great institutions that make is possible for a lot of people to get educations they otherwise could not have afforded (and I was a privileged kid who got to go to a private school). That is snark free.

    2) what is your problem? Having a bad day? Sheesh.

  • donner_froh

    In the heartland of the bitters–West Virginia, central Pennsylvania, other places where REAL Americans live–it is neighborly to leave rabbits, squirrels and ground hugging rodents. Usually they are properly gutted, dressed and ready for the spit but in the case of roadkill sometimes just scraped up and nicely arranged on the porch.

    The PUMA girl be happy that she has become one of the gang.

  • Doglessliberal

    And, hey, maybe the bunnies are actually suiciding. How do we know they are not really depressed bunnies?

  • Servo

    The question they asked themselves was “What would Martha Stewart do?”.

  • MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend

    This reminds of that Save Toby website.

    Bugs/Daffy ’08!

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=58445]Doglessliberal[/re]: hah! make “it” possible. Obviously, I did not get an education in proofing at my private college.

  • SayItWithWookies

    On mybarackobama.com, one blogger accused Ms. Murphy, who voted for Mr. McCain in the 2000 Massachusetts primary, of being a McCain plant and called her a “Republican Astro-Turfer.” She denies being a plant.

    Yeah, that’s a perfectly ridiculous accusation. She’s a Rove plant, obviously.

  • donner_froh
  • AngryBlakGuy

    …dead bunnies? maybe they are misinterpreting the gesture? My father had a dog when he was young that use to kill chickens and leave them on the porch as gift. Maybe the Obama-tards are trying to be friendly? Now if they were leaving flaming bags of shyt on your doorstep then that’s totally different case. Speaking of which has anyone seen my lighter and brown bag?

    [re=58427]CrunchyKnee[/re]: …I feel your pain buddy, I showed up late to work wreaking of Jack Daniels, stale cigarettes and cheap perfume from the girl I was sexually harassing at the bar last night.

  • pondscum

    [re=58413]Botswana Meat Commission FC[/re]: Deer. Big, brown eyes = delicious

  • Fear of a Black Reagan

    The bunnies died in a mooslim honor killing. And also because of Sexism.

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    My cat, Aldous Huxley, leaves dead rabbits on the back porch all the time. I’m fairly certain he’s an Obama feline.

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=58454]donner_froh[/re]: “Hilarious Bunny Suicide Pictures”! Words one would never expect to see combined. I love it.

  • graceless

    [re=58455]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: I got your zippo right here, baby.

  • The Real JR Revisted

    The victimization is now extending to harrasment and stalking?

    Lady, nobody wants you. Get over it. You’re lonely, I’m sorry. Work at a soup kitchen or something and just get out of the house and be useful.

  • pondscum

    [re=58454]donner_froh[/re]: Crap, that is hilarious! Reminds me of 101 uses for a dead cat.

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=58468]pondscum[/re]: My parents got that book for most of our relatives one Xmas eons ago when it first came out. Unfortunately, some relatives were humor-challenged.

  • nbawriter

    [re=58413]Botswana Meat Commission FC[/re]: I’ll go with koalas. And you can’t counter that argument without eating one, pal.

  • sarcasticusername

    20 bucks says some confused PUMA thought she was a secret obama lover. heck she probably did it to herself; the internal struggle to resist the inadequate negro’s great charms has obviously done a number on the few brain cells she had remaining. STAY STRONG DARRAGH!
    seriously though, i can imagine these women sitting around in weight watchers style support groups, it’s creepy.

  • snig

    My guess is it was actually something like these:
    Safer for work than the average Wonkette page.

  • pondscum

    [re=58473]Doglessliberal[/re]: Are those same relatives Hillary supporters? I’m seeing a connection here…

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=58481]pondscum[/re]: some are, but most are Republicans. Holidays were interesting.

  • The Real JR Revisted

    Reading the comments in the Observer article, I feel like I’m in some sort of Twilight Zone.

    Honestly, is it like the same 5 people commenting over and over again. Spamming just to confuse with sheer volume?

  • mookworthjwilson

    My favorite comment from that article…some guy describing the PUMAs: But, basically, they are the Boston Tea Party as choreographed by the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, under the direction of Zool

  • mookworthjwilson

    [re=58413]Botswana Meat Commission FC[/re]: Baby Goat.

  • Cicada

    [re=58484]The Real JR Revisted[/re]: Yes. It seems to be the PUMA methodology: spam spam spam and spread the word of NOOBAMA. It’s the same demented method that has endeared Ron Paul to so many people.

    I have a hard time believing Darragh Murphy’s stories. First she claimed to be a Dem but was a registered Repub. Then there’s the fact that she voted for WALNUTS in 2000, but now claims to only be supporting him because of her “outrage” at the Dems. Perhaps some demented Obama supporter is snuffing bunnies, but methinks it is a wee bit more likely that the serial liar is at it again.

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=58487]mookworthjwilson[/re]: lamb, horse, monkey, anything that can be killed and eaten has been on this planet. Gorillas are regularly poached and eaten as “bush meat”. Sadly, those gorillas are probably more intelligent than many members of the Bush Admin.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    On behalf of all Lapine Americans, I’d like to express my outrage against this senseless slaughter of my fellow fuzzy citizens. Please, people: Rabbit corpses should be eaten or turned into clothing or used as sex toys, not left lying around. Unless you’re doing it to traumatize children, then I’m down with it.

  • KevoTron

    [re=58413]Botswana Meat Commission FC[/re]: Paultard babies.

  • Cicada

    [re=58441]Makeithurt[/re]: O-Towelhead? You have wounded Barry with your rhetorical brilliance, good sir (or madam).

    O-Towelhead’s followers are not community college attending, basement-dwelling underachievers. We are graduate degree holding, basement-dwelling underachievers. Get it right!

  • JadedDIssonance

    [re=58449]Doglessliberal[/re]: Perchance a Lapine sacrifice to the PumaLords? They will be given 99 bunny virgins in heaven. (Those are hard to find!)

  • AngryBlakGuy

    [re=58441]Makeithurt[/re]: …just plain wrong on so many levels! Lemme break it down for you:

    -Anarchist: Don’t vote; instead they sit around smoking weed railing on “the man”. And when they do get off their azzes its to burn a couple cars and have their heads caved in by riot police.

    -Gen Xer’s who drink wheat grass: Those people are voting for Nader

    -Community College: Obama’s followers all attend Ivy League schools, because they are so filthy rich or though the use of Affirmative Action(or both, whatever pisses off trailer park America the most).

    -Living in the basement: Paultards are basement dwellers not Obamatards

    …I hope this clears things up for you; now go back to your double wide and beat your wife/cousin!

  • Gopherit v2.0

    [re=58475]nbawriter[/re]: They come pre-infused with eucalyptus. Mmmm.

    Me, I’d pick lamb. Damn, those fluffy little guys are tasty.

    I thought Pumas ate rabbits? wats the big deal?

    [re=58527]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: [re=58475]nbawriter[/re]: [re=58413]Botswana Meat Commission FC[/re]: …how about that Chinese girl that “sang” at the Olympics, she looks pretty tasty?!

  • medievalist

    [re=58484]The Real JR Revisted[/re]: Yes, the comments are crazy, OFTEN IN CAPITALS, and — of course — racist:

    “I knew Hillary was capable, but I wanted to see who this Obama character was and the more I heard and the more I saw I was completely baffled why he was in the race….. It’s ironic the O.J. hotel robbery hit the air real close to the time of Reverend Wright’s rant and rave….I started hearing Obama this, Obama that and I was still looking for why he was being put on such a high podium, and then you’d see O.J. with his smug grin, Obama had that same smug grin.”

    Gotta love ’em.

  • Gopherit v2.0

    [re=58459]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: You mighty be on to something here, given how many PUMAs are probably Crazy Cat Ladies, too.

  • sati demise

    [re=58526]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: but of course none of those people are real Americans to Makeithurt.

    The only real Americans are white bitters.
    You know the ‘in’ crowd who are CONFUSED about Mr. Obama because they spend all their time watching soaps and gossiping instead of reading Obamas policy statements or the fuc*in’ Democratic PLATFORM.

  • BadNewsJack

    So thats where I put my dead rab….. i mean to say… oh fuck it, I did it.

  • Voted for Mondale

    Wait a minute – we know Hill and Bill killed Kathleen Wiley’s cat – maybe they’re just branching out into rodents. There’s only one way to tell – was the head bitten off?

  • AngryBlakGuy

    [re=58539]sati demise[/re]: …hey, dont be so rough on them! For them to read Obama’s policies they would actually have to have the ability to read. All the brain damage caused from inbreeding, huffing spray paint and drinking moonshine diluted with floor cleaner has taken its toll on many a “Red Staters”.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    30 lashes with a wet, flaccid rabbit corpse, Jack.

  • The Real JR Revisted

    [re=58536]medievalist[/re]: Oh, that random O.J. rant was absolutely amazing. Gold Star for that primetime batshittery.

    Even if these people weren’t already the sort of PUMAs who couldn’t help being sociopathic liars, it’d still have the hoax-stink all over it, like all the other political trolls who cry wolf and spray paint swastikas on their own property for attention.
