A Frank Guide to Appealing to the Nutroots

Hi, it’s Frank J. of IMAO, America’s favorite Frank J.

If you’ve ever gone to a place like the Daily Kos, you’ll notice that those guys are crazy. I mean literally sitting in a circle, eating their own feces while ranting about how President Bush stole their bong crazy. It’s been documented.

Still, the Democratic Presidential candidates need to appeal to these guys — at least to get through the primary. This is hard for them, because their concerns are widely different from anyone else in the country. The front page of the Daily Kos is pretty much always taken up by calls for subpoenas and impeachment and the status of their ongoing war with Joe Lieberman (you can almost hear them shout “jooooo!” while shaking their tiny fists every time he’s mentioned; he’s Senator until 2012, guys — the war is lost. It’s time you pull out of that quagmire). Any major news concern to most of the country — like the current attempted terrorist attacks — will be lucky if it even gets a mention by them. The current favorite presidential candidate of Daily Kos is John Edwards, a prissy little girl trapped in a man’s body who has no chance on a national stage. Obviously these types of people are chemically imbalanced in their brains which makes it hard for an astute politician to know what to do around them. To help, I wrote this guide:
