Heh: Nervous Liberals Suffering Panic Attacks, Losing Sleep Over Prospect of Obama Defeat

Posted by on Oct 29, 2012 at 11:14 am

The Obama cultists are very, very worried. We don’t feel their pain.

What a pity.

There’s no shortage of their kind in the politically bluest parts of California. Liberals so freaked out about the prospect of President Obama losing his re-election bid that they can’t sleep at night. Can’t talk about anything else. Can’t stop parsing the latest polls.

David Plouffe, one of President Obama’s top campaign strategists, has a word for supporters he feels are needlessly fretful: bed wetters.

“Oh, I think I’m worse than that,” Kay Edelman said.

What does it tell you when these tools in your own party call you bed wetters?

For the past several weeks, the 60-year-old San Francisco resident has frequently bolted awake in the middle of the night, in “a panic attack,” she said. She darts for her computer and checks the latest polls. Some days she’s so distraught that she can’t exercise.

Every morning, she gets e-mails from friends who’ve been just as sleepless. Most are so tense, they can croak out only a few words. “Very anxious.” “Worried.”

“Nothing more needs to be said,” said Edelman, a retired educational administrator.

Oh, to have been a fly on the wall as these lamebrains watched the first debate.

Edelman hosted a bunch of friends to watch the debate over dinner. But after the first five minutes unfolded, nobody ate. Few spoke. “And right after it ended, everybody just got up and left,” she said.

Berkeley resident Jim Blume yelled at the television while he watched the debate with family and friends.

“C’mon! Say something! That’s wrong what he (Romney) is saying,” Blume recalls telling the leader of the free world.

Alas, Obama didn’t respond to Blume’s pleas. And for the next two nights, Blume didn’t sleep. A man who has voted for only one Republican in his life – when the Beatles were touring – found himself questioning Obama and the state of the campaign.

Keep reading. And laughing.

    the reactions i get here in Lost Angels when i mock their Obama stickers are priceless… at first they can’t believe anyone doesn’t support our SCOAMF, then they get angry, when four years ago they were smug.

    you can smell the fear… it’s as delectable as sitting down to a big rare steak. %-)

    I could probably be assassinated for this but here’s a hot tip. If you don’t already own stocks in the pharmaceutical companies making anti-depressants – BUY! Word is the value will double after November the sixth.

    Shocker. Retired from leeching off taxpayers and worried about her Mandingo losing his job.
