American People Give Republican Party Major Responsibility: big $ale on truck nutz

by Jim Newell

Well now we have leverage with the Republican party to rebuild it in the likeness of Truck Nutz. The Paultards, meanwhile, have nothing. [Rebuild The Party]

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

No wonder why Gingrich doesn’t want to lead this party if they thought that this un-moderated, “customer feedback” idea was a good thing.

Hurray! This is the greatest day for liberty since 1776, at least.

Internally valid November 11, 2008 at 8:16 pm

Um . . . I’m actually a little concerned that we were able to beat the Paultards. Either they’re slipping or we’re, well, let’s not go there.

You’ve made me proud, America. Now make sure someone stays up tonight casting votes to keep us in the lead. Not me, as I need to wander upstairs for some victory sex. Hopefully my wife’s interested, as I am getting tired of taking advantage of myself.

Vewol Mevemont November 11, 2008 at 8:53 pm

I admit that I’m partial to the “Carve backward B in face; teach themselves a lesson” option, but I voted Nuts to be a good sport. That’s called reaching across… no, reaching around the aisle.

Texan Bulldoggette November 11, 2008 at 8:54 pm

[re=174012]HybridzCantHandleTheNutz[/re]: My God, I had no idea those existed. Those people should be giving Wonkette a cut of the royalties for all the free publicity.

Those are almost as sad as these douche bags who buy fake balls to put in a neutered dog’s empty nut sac to make him feel like he still has a pair.

Cicada November 11, 2008 at 8:54 pm

But do TRUCK NUTZ have the mandate necessary to unite the GOP under a pair of enormous rubber testicles?

Sussemilch November 11, 2008 at 8:59 pm

Never doubt that a small group of truck nutz can change the world, for in truth they are the only thing that ever has.

HybridzCantHandleTheNutz November 11, 2008 at 9:03 pm

[re=174020]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: I guess we could go with the notion that no publicity is bad publicity, but otherwise, I’m not so sure we advanced their popularity among Republicans today, and something tells me that most of their customers are Republicans. But something else tells me that the TRUCK NUTZ market doesn’t spend much time on the PaulTard blogs.

PoliTacky November 11, 2008 at 9:04 pm

I love the smell of TRUCKNUTZ! in the morning… it smells like… VICTORY.

natoslug November 11, 2008 at 9:09 pm

[re=174020]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Neuticles!!! Interestingly, the only dog I personally know with a pair belongs to my lesbian pretend-girlfriend. She and her partner didn’t want him to take it personally when they had his nuts whacked off, so they opted for a set of neuticles (or crotch-clackers, as I prefer to call them).

PuffAdder November 11, 2008 at 9:09 pm

“I love the smell of TRUCKNUTZ! in the morning… it smells like… VICTORY.”

When coupled with the smell of dead moose and used GOP-bought panties… then yes, yes it does.

wheelie November 11, 2008 at 9:13 pm

My favourite remark from the Comments on that site, from CoolRefreshingJesus:

“My dad once told me a story about his days spent in a bamboo hut in a makeshift prison toward the end of the War. It was the 4th of July and his spirits were very low. He wanted to be back behind the wheel of his old ’61 Chevy, a beer in his hand, mom’s delicate face in his lap. He began to weep. Then a guard approached, knelt, and drew in the dirt outside my father’s cell a crude set of TruckNutz.”

Take a bow, someone.

j6n November 11, 2008 at 9:14 pm

[re=174020]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: now buy a pair and nail them to the wall and now they’re…

Comments People! We are still lagging the Paultards in terms of comments. This should be easy since we don’t often complete sentences containing TruckNutz and proper capitalization is forbidden. I’m not interested in reading the Paultard comments, but I suspect they are multi-paragraph rants so we can easily catch up

eastcoastliberal November 11, 2008 at 9:40 pm

That was Hard Work!

Borat November 11, 2008 at 9:44 pm

Do we have any reporters (with proper credentials) that can call the RNC and DEMAND to know what they make of the results of their poll?

I’d like to see an article about the ‘findings’ of their vote

PuffAdder November 11, 2008 at 9:47 pm

“Do we have any reporters (with proper credentials) that can call the RNC and DEMAND to know what they make of the results of their poll?”

I did actually call them for a comment, but I couldn’t make out the response. It sounded like, “Mmymph mouff ip pfull og truckk nutzzz.”

I’ve moved on in the world. In the race between Truck Nutz and Doctor Congressman Ron Paul (R-Blimp) I’ve decided to endorse NutsForTrucks, a competitor that appears with a lower Google listing for the term “TRUCK NUTZ” than the monopolistic Official Truck Nutz(tm). These rival NutsForTrucks boast more realistic scrotal veins, so that the granny behind my shiny black F-150 can know that my automobile has REAL MANLY GENITALS. I know, it’s a fringe choice, but I just can’t vote TruckNutz when there’s a viable third party candidate.

HE DOESN’T THINK WE SHOULD KILL ALL THE MUSLINS AND START WWIII SO THAT JESUS WILL RETURN, AND THEN THERE’S GONNA BE AURORA BOREALIS IN ALASKA OR SOMETHING — THE DETAILS ARE HAZY.

[re=174161]mattbolt[/re]: In a way, it could be viewed as the difference between a group of friends in private making jokes, and one that goes out in public. The problem in this case is, obviously, that the little group of friends who finds it humorous to make jokes about downs syndrome and call people “paultards” is purposely going out there and spreading it around – to the people that will find it offensive. I think that might be considered the time that an “in-joke” steps into intended harassment of others.
[re=174165]facehead[/re]: Oh believe me, I found the GOP incredibly disrespectful too. While you are probably saying that as an outsider looking in, I say it from my own personal experience within the party, dealing with the sorts of corrupt officials that are running it. I don’t mind a little bit of mockery aimed their way, but I think a line is crossed into counter-productivity when you bring children, or offensive slurs aimed at opponents.

[re=174184]Volumptuous[/re]: Paul voting for the holiday was one of two notable times he voted for something not expressly authorized by the Constitution – the other being his support for NASA.

He did not oppose the medal for Rosa Parks, but rather, he opposed the use of tax-dollars for the medal – as he did with the medal for Mother Theresa and Pope John Paul II. Instead, he proposed that all congressman put forward $100 of their own to pay for it and show their support. Noone else joined him in the effort, though.

“The challenge is daunting, but if we adopt a strongly anti-Washington message and charge hard against Obama and the Democrats, we will energize our grassroots base.”

[re=174191]messickc (ROLL TIDE!)[/re]: Well, I didn’t write the introduction to the site. I did, however, give my support to a couple proposals, such as ending the drug war, opposing the patriot act, and adopting a socially libertarian stance as opposed to a warm embrace of the religious right.

I don’t have a problem working with democrats where there’s common ground on these issues, either. In fact, that is sort of one of my points about this whole spam deal – by blanketly insulting and attacking all Republicans as bigots/racists/retarded/whatever else, you are insulting a lot of people who actually, I suspect, share a lot of common ground with you and can be worked with.

[re=174197]messickc (ROLL TIDE!)[/re]: Sure. These are important times, with important issues. The more people are able to work together on areas of common ground, the better. I think sites like rebuildtheparty.com have a chance, albeit small, to impact things for the better if used properly – and before all this spamming happened, I think it had been used right. Imagine how much better things would be if, rather than spend this time undermining those causes of common ground, people put it into constructive efforts? So I definitely think that is the way to go.

Plus, I wouldn’t want to be hit by any trucknuts.
[re=174202]CuntryFirst[/re]: I agree with you somewhat, the site was unlikely to have much impact before the spamming. You did a good job reducing the chance even further, but as I hinted at above, maybe that’s not such a good thing for you.

This obviously isn’t the only thing we can do – the party establishment isn’t permanent, after all, and if they can’t do the job right there are plenty out there who can. But will the right people get in? I guess that’s politics for you. It’s a process.

And low and behold, when they did that the majority of people going to the site were people who want a less invasive government on personal issues. People who want to see the Patriot Act repealed, the government get out of marriage, the endless wars stopped, the budget balanced, the debt reduced.

The same people they had banned from their sites (at least in the case of Redstate) were back at this one saying the same things they said last year. Would we be ignored again? Well, you certainly helped delegitimize the site through spamming it. As I said before, even if this was the goal, maybe it isn’t such a good thing considering you probably share a lot of common ground with us on these issues.
[re=174256]Anonymous Office Zombie[/re]: You aren’t hurting your “gop oppressors.” They love the status quo, and would love for any effort to change the party in the direction we want to be undermined. Rather then undermining them, you helped to undermine those of us who oppose them.

[re=174264]Bojevus[/re]: Someone else said basically the same thing as you, so I will just quote my previous answer (it is getting rather late afterall):

I agree with you somewhat, the site was unlikely to have much impact before the spamming. You did a good job reducing the chance even further, but as I hinted at above, maybe that’s not such a good thing for you.

This obviously isn’t the only thing we can do – the party establishment isn’t permanent, after all, and if they can’t do the job right there are plenty out there who can. But will the right people get in? I guess that’s politics for you. It’s a process.

A one party state isn’t happening. But what if the two main parties both oppose the above things? While the site most likely wasn’t set up expecting to get the sort of response it got from people who want less government interference in personal lives, that’s just what it got. Spamming the site doesn’t help further those ideas.

Mista Eko November 12, 2008 at 11:24 am

[re=174378]Rangeley[/re]: Making a website thinking that the sea of internet humanity will generate fresh and bold ideas doesn’t help the party. Making a website period doesn’t help the party. Digging the site and telling everybody on RonPaulForums to go vote on it and btw the site doesn’t check for e-mail verificaion (which is spamming) doesn’t help the party. Anything facebooky, bulletin-boardy, and youtubey will not help the party.

So the site deserves to be mocked and defaced.

As you do want to reform the party, and for that I’ll tip my hat to you, I will say that doing so requires a different set of actions altogether. Civic involvement is what you seek. Monitoring city hall, letters to the editor, marches, harassing people on the corners for money, working with local officials, community organizing! Now’s your best shot for a generation.

Rangeley November 12, 2008 at 3:46 pm

[re=174709]Vewol Mevemont[/re]: Well, I wouldn’t want to start a political debate here, but the lack of laws does not mean a lack of rules. There’s no law that says you can’t swear in other people’s homes, for instance. But if you went to a certain house and it’s owners felt you were causing a disruption, they have the authority to ask you to leave their house and property. You are there because they gave you permission (and you can’t be there without it,) so they can just as easily take it away.

Similarly, websites, such as rebuildtheparty.com, often require you to sign onto a terms of service agreement – a step further then the above in that they tell you up front what they deem unacceptable. Rebuildtheparty.com outlines as unacceptable, in particular: abuse, harassment, derogatory and discriminatory language, among other things. In registering, you both agree not to engage in that sort of behavior on the site, and recognize that if you break the contract, they reserve the right to stop you.

Their effectiveness at enforcing their own rules aside (it hasn’t been so impressive,) this is a good example of the concept that power should be decentralized. Rather than the government imposing it’s particular view on what should be allowed in websites and what shouldn’t, sites themselves can determine this, with different sorts of sites having the freedom to determine the right rules for themselves. Obviously, Wonkette.com has a different set than rebuildtheparty.com, with good reason. They are different sites with different goals. Each site will always be better at drawing the line than the government – not only because they know the sites goals better, but they, unlike the government, are not beholden to special interests and the lure of power – which could distort even an informed government’s decisions on an issue such as this.

I hope you aren’t arguing for government intervention into where to draw the line as your “real world” solution, as such a power could easily be used to clean this site of the form of “humor” it is built around. I certainly wouldn’t want that – rather, I simply ask that you respect the different rules of other sites, and perhaps find a way to have fun that doesn’t interfere with real efforts to change the country for the better.

Vewol Mevemont November 12, 2008 at 6:52 pm

[re=174897]Rangeley[/re]: Good Christ, my analogy was very general, not an a call for the internet humor police.

By the way, your distinction between laws and rules is bogus. The “rules” you gave are only enforceable because they’re backed up by the power of laws. You would be surprised (or perhaps not) at the lack available remedies for intrustions into your website as of just a few years ago. You have some remedies now — mostly ineffective remedies, and remedies that are entirely based upon various computer interference type state and federal laws passed fairly recently. Likewise, your ability to prevent people from swearing in your house is premised upon the existence of certain laws. A better distinction might be between laws conferring “property rights,” and other laws, but even that distinction is too simplistic.

Rangeley November 12, 2008 at 7:31 pm

[re=175199]Vewol Mevemont[/re]: I’m not sure how my distinction is bogus? The rules are set by the property owner, not the government. While the government would act as a lost resort enforcer if the property was being used in a way by others against the will of the owner, just what constitutes misuse would be determined by the owner. Meanwhile, it would indeed be a different situation if the government made a law defining what misuse is, for instance outlawing profanity use by guests, preventing people from using a neighbors pool unless the neighbors are present, etc.

[re=175236]Rangeley[/re]: Am I still allowed to piss in my neighbor’s pool when he isn’t present?

Every time I see “muslins” is like the first time…I just get so damn giddy. I hope that wonder never ends.

Blasphemy!!! TRUCKNUTZ are our LORD and GOD and we serve them only. NoBama Hussein is merely the prophet of the TRUCKNUTZ, hallowed be their name.

[re=175326]wonktard[/re]: Count me in with our undead office collegue. I don’t know who this “Obama” lad is, but I’ll only promise to set up an “Obama” shrine once he promises me some trucknutz.

[re=175447]Snarkfest[/re]: Indeed, and apparently that’s irking a few of The Serious People. In response to the helpful suggestion that the GOP contract with Truck Nutz (and before going on an oddly dull rant), the not-so-aptly-labeled Grand asked,”Who invited the Wonktards?” And here I thought helping Republicans was a bi-partisan effort. Hell, I was also under the impression that the internet is no longer merely a single big truck driven by Ted Stevens, but an endless series of motherfucking Truck Nutz. Hey Republican Party: Invite my balls.

Along with my Nutzvote I threw in one for “step away from the religious right.” As one of the few ideas that actually makes sense, it has been unceremoniously removed from the entire site.
