I've Got A Bad Case of Schadenfreude

Yes, I admit it. I have schadenfreude. I've waited oh so long for this, and now it's so good. McCain and Palin are at each other's throats, "Diva," "Old Fart," "Rogue"--what did you expect you senile old man? It's too sweet. Ted Stevens was convicted of 7 , yes that's seven, felonies, yes dear, felonies. Five years in the pokey for each. The timing couldn't be better. It's looking bad for all of them, and for me it's time for schadenfreude. Sing it to me. Where's my stein? That bullet proof majority in the Senate's looking easier and easier a hill to climb.

I paid my bill at Comcast today and usually that's a drag. But the clerk who waited on me (after I waited for her for eighteen minutes) said, "I'll sure be glad when the election is over, and I'm really hoping for change." We did the famous terrorist fist bump while rather loudly whispering Obama. Paying Comcast didn't hurt so much this month. I hope she doesn't get fired.

A friend of mine who lives next door came home from work. She stopped in for a smoke. She asked me if I'd seen the bumper sticker "MOBAMA, Mormons for Obama," and we did a fist bump too. Ah, schadenfreude is good. Wish I were a beer drinker, I'd have swung by the liquor store for a nice German Pilsner. I'd have a toast to Schadenfreude!

SHIT, for a nanosecond, I thought that McCain and Palin were screaming at me, then I realized...

"Dad, do you know what schadenfreude is?"

"No, I don't know what schadenfreude is, please tell me 'cause I'm dyyyyyyying to know."

I always get a happy when something bad happens to wingnuts. People tell me that's not very Christian. I tell them I'm an atheist.

Oh shit, they're right, we ARE amoral crackpots! Oh well.

There's nothing Schaden about your Freude.

And here I thought they couldn't see past Romney.

I won't feel good until I wake up Nov. 5, immediately turn the TV on and hear that Obama has won.

I remember 4 years ago I was certain I would wake up to the news that Kerry was president. I also remember that stunned feeling as I sat in bed watching the smarmy face of Bush.

the election can still be stolen and someone IN INDIA no less asked me if the rumors that Obama is gay were true. I never heard this shit before and I googled it, I suggest you do, too.

if the racists can't get him, the homophobes will.

it ain't over 'til it's over.

No beer?

OK, name your poison, Utah.

And should we ever meet, be prepared to have at least one with me. On me, of course.

God Tengrain, you are so sexy.

After eight years of this, you should get a double schadenfreude.

And the GOP is complaining Ayers? I wish I could remember the list of GOP terrorists that Randi Rhodes just listed. It's fun to post that sort of list on conservative blogs.
