E Pluribus Unum, Not. (Updated)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 6:39 pm

This is sad.

It is website on which people are invited to submit pictures of themselves expressing “to the rest of the world” on hand held signs (no sound) how sorry they are that President Bush was re-elected. Some are even taking the opportunity to appeal to the terrorists to please refrain from bombing their particular location.

Words fail.

If you feel like bothering, the download may be a tad slow, due to either the images or the traffic the place is probably getting.

Thanks to Mike for the link.

Update: The link now leads to a “Go Daddy” site. I verified that the URL was the same one that worked earlier today. The pictures were large, so maybe the site quickly smoked its bandwidth (like I know shit from Shinola about bandwidth). Then again, maybe some computer whiz smoked the site. Even though I found the site to be utterly loathsome, I would not want to see it hacked. I prefer to leave that kind of crap to the other side.

Update 2: Dan Kauffman has provided a working URL in the comments to this post.


  1. Eh, Jim, the link goes to a garbage site here:

    The traffic from your site got to be too much?

  2. It seems to be parked but it shows up on google, might have to check it in google cache?

    I put MY answer to folks like that here.

  3. I’m still convinced that the site was a spoof. All evidence to the contrary, I just have a hard time believing that people could be so…I don’t know…is “stupid” the proper word to describe this?

    If anyone still hasn’t seen the site, Tim Blair has some selections posted here:

    We definitely have to find a way to get Tim to the next blogfest, Jim.

  5. Come on, guys. You won. With a candidate who evokes strong emotions on both sides. Let the losers blow off some steam.

    Do you think there wouldn’t have been sites ridiculing Kerry if he won? Tell me you are not that naive.

  6. “Do you think there wouldn’t have been sites ridiculing Kerry if he won? Tell me you are not that naive.”

    In fact, it’s my understanding that there are sites ridiculing Kerry for losing.

    Um, like this one. 🙂
