“Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest (Thomas Becket) ?–King Henry II.
“Let us away, knights; this fellow will arise no more.”–King Henry’s knights.
Rumproast’s infamous forum, the Rumper Room, may have disappeared, but thanks to technology like the Wayback Machine and Google Cache, nothing on the internet ever really disappears. On a recent Cannonfire thread, Rumproast regular “Strangeappar8us” even hinted that it was just temporarily offline, not gone.
So why have they locked the doors? What is going on in there that they don’t want the public to see? Using my Google-fu, I have discovered that Rumproast’s latest targets are Sen. Joe Lieberman and Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa. Here’s their latest attempt at witty repartee (image clickable) :
“The fact that Ms. Coakley shares two things with me–a vagina and a vote for Hillary does not mean she is a proper representative.”
Color me confused. Aren’t those the only two things that matter about a person?

Maybe we should take a page from the Tom Coburn playbook * and start praying for certain senators from states with Democratic governors to kick off really soon.
I’ll start the list—Chuck Grassley of Iowa.

Oh hey, can we curb-stomp** Lieberman now? Since the super majority thingie has gone bye-bye, we might as well. Sure would turn my frown upside down.Comment by Betty Cracker on 01/20/10 at 10:22 PM~~~~~
Oh hey, can we curb-stomp Lieberman now?
Please God yes. I have no idea what he cares about, but I hope someone figures it out (Goldman? BCBS?), so we can tear it apart while he watches from his AEtna sinecure.
Seriously, though, Lieberman represents the new American dream—“I’ve got mine, bitches”—and there’s not much we can do but get our own and hope that he gets some hideous cancer.

*Tom Coburn playbook : “‘What the American people ought to pray is that somebody can’t make the vote tonight,’ he said. ‘That’s what they ought to pray.’ It was difficult to escape the conclusion that Coburn was referring to the 92-year-old, wheelchair-bound Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.V.) who has been in and out of hospitals and lay at home ailing.”
** Curb stomp. Urban dictionary: “Placing someones mouth on a curb, then repeatedly stomping and/or kicking the back of the person’s head, hard enough to detatch their jaws. Most people die from this experience, due to head, neck, or vertabrae injuries.”
