Tales from Indiana

A cool moment in a convenience store this afternoon in the deep red of Indiana, Mike Pence's district. There was a very long line (a professional lottery player buying way too many tickets apparently), anyway a lady walked in wearing an Obama t-shirt. I was waiting for eyes to roll and muttering to begin, but to my surprise one old guy said "Like that shirt" and people in the line started talking about the debate and Obama and there was a consensus that Obama did well and was going to win. Now this is in a town where even the Democrats are Republicans. I was grinning from ear to ear and didn't even mind waiting for 5 minutes on lotto man. The times they are a changin'. Dig it.


It's a sucky, poorly written bouncy but at least the DUmmy is making an effort to end the bouncy drought. And I give it 1/2 bong for the "dig it" just because I haven't heard that term in decades.

Why do all DUmp bouncys take place in convenience stores, backyards, and grocery stores? Do these people never work? Go to church? Attend sporting events? :confused:

Most DUmmies have an aversion to work and church. And their idea of sports is competitive Cheeto eating and keyboarding, activities that don't have organized events.

Well, that would explain the shortage of bouncy venues, I guess. It always strikes me as weird since I go to a convenience store maybe 2 times a month, if that.

I go to the convenience store a few times per week - we're out in the country and it's the closest place to get milk, gas, etc.

Funny, as often as I go, I've never seen a political discussion at the convenience store. And I've even seen SUVs at the gas pump with McCain or Bush stickers, but nobody ever confronts them.

I've never been in a line anywhere - grocery story, Wal-mart, convenience store - where people talked about anything of significance.

Don't forget the run on Dr. bouncies we had going there. I thought they needed health ins.
I have only heard one bouncy, but real, in a coffee shop. About Sara Palin, what a great pick. This woman went on about how GWB had let her down. The only reason I could her was she was sitting three tables from the guy she was talking to. I never did get my food. I had to go to work hungery.

ZERO BONGS

Seriously dull bouncy.

Where the hell did all the notoriously pathetic overacted bouncies go???

I sort of believe this one...if they were all in line to buy lottery tickets. I doubt many repigs are dumb enough to spend the time waiting, or the money on those kind of odds. I can see a line of Obama voters doing both. :D

Most DUmmies believe that work= selling out and becoming slaves of the mean old corporate empire, that church is for brainless "fundy" fanatics (Yet many have no problem with astrology and various forms of paganism/ the occult), and that sporting events are for dumb, unsophisticated rednecks (A conclusion most likely drawn from the fact that most of them were always picked last for sports and games in school).
I wouldn't even call it a Bouncy, as it really contains none of the traditional elements of a Bouncy ("Repukes," "Fundies," oppressive cops, confrontations, conversions, etc.)

I had a good chat over coffee at a convenience store today.

I stopped for coffee this morning at my favorite convenience store, and a customer at the counter asked me if I thought she was an airhead. Naturally I asked who, and he said “Sarah.” I told him I did, and then we started chatting. He said that he didn’t think McCain was that bad, but he was concerned that Sarah had been picked for a running mate.

I told the guy that I thought McCain, just like the statement in “A Few Good Men” had “…no code. He had no honor…”

“Did you know,” I asked, “that McCain was out chasing skirts before he had divorced his first wife, who had been disfigured in an accident while he was a POW? Or that he had crashed four aircraft prior to the one in which he was shot down? Or that he finished right near the bottom of his Naval Academy graduating class? Or that he consistently voted against bills for vet benefits? Shall I go on?’

The guy had not heard any of this. We had about five more minutes after that, and when I left, I heard him asking the clerk “Did you know…”

It was a good cup of coffee.

That is because the bad guys know there are cops hiding in the bushes!
