Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Get Used To Disappointment edition

Good morning, folks!

Sorry about the outage and the subsequent flood of queued posts. Our host was brought down by a DDoS attack – hopefully it’s mitigated, and the infected zombie machines’ IPs are blocked from the internet forever:

“Hey – I can’t get to any internet sites! I wanted to download some more virus-laden games and ‘special offers’ !”

OK – to business.

Seriously – it has to be hard to be a Freeper. I’m not talking about the endless freepathons, the enormous pressure to be the first to post the fauxrage of the day – I’m talking about the constant disappointment.

When you’re a Freeper, there is no “happily ever after” – your heroes turn on you, your successes turn to ashes – there’s never a victory. Even “successes” like Dubya slide into obilvion as the mists of hoo-hah die down and the stinking reality squats in the noonday sun like a run-over toad.

So – some of the recent disppointments, in reverse order.

First –Joe The Bummer!

(Reuters) – An Ohio man who rose to fame as “Joe the Plumber” by challenging then-presidential candidate Barack Obama on tax policy in 2008 has taken a unionized job with one of the U.S. Big Three automakers, he said on his website.

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, a conservative, announced on Sunday that he recently had the “fortune of being hired by a great company”, Chrysler Corporation, where all workers must be United Automobile Workers union members.

Never ever put your faith in a politician, or anybody who wants to be one. You will be disappointed.

Understood. It was a rhetorical question. My point is why did the guy have to make a public announcement, anyway? He simply made himself a tool for the left. Nice going, Joe!

Why, indeed? What nefarious plot must be behind this betrayal?

Imagine the reception he would have gotten by his coworkers the next day if he had dissed them…

Peer pressure’s a bitch, innit?
More disappointment after the clicky-thing…
