I've got a psycho Palin supporter on my tail...
Edited on Wed Jul-15-09 11:30 PM by CoffeeCat
So, I'm on Facebook tonight, and I answer a poll, "Should Sarah Palin run for President in 2012?"

Since "Heaaaayyyllllll NO!" wasn't an option, I clicked "No" and added a comment, "Yes, I think Sarah
Palin should be President--President of the National Nimrod Association."

A minute later, I get an unsolicited, private Facebook message from Melody L Judy Stobbe. I don't
know this person. I've never heard of her. The message says:

"Why is it that women are so jealous of other women who are successful with marriage, family and career...oh, lets not forget, intelligent, straight forward and not polically correct, and pretty...is a reflection of what they don't see or want within themselves...

Oh REALLLLLY, Ms Melody L. Judy Stobbe?

So, I replied:

"I don't agree with your initial supposition. I don't believe that, as you said--Women are so jealous of other women who are successful with marriage, family and career...etc.' You just described myself and the fabulous women in my life--including family and friends. I had a luncheon today in my home--and was surrounded by accomplished, gorgeous women--doctors, authors, teachers and artists. So, who are you and what are you talking about?
And why on Earth are you wearing a Christmas tree skirt?"

(Here's the link to her FB pic, so you can better understand the Christmas-tree skirt comment:


Melody L Judy Stobbe replied back again:

"cuz I can..why on earth are such successful people hanging out with someone with so little class...don't think you fit into the category I just described...,you are tooooo self absorbed and rude. But that is what our Country is all about 'freedom' to believe one's all that and not..."

OHhhh...DU--you guys are so funny and creative. What should be my next reply to Melody L Judy Stobbe?

6. Don't sway from the OP. Hammer her on Palin. It's about Palin, not you.

GOPiggies love to make it personal to throw you off the track.


Just hammer her on Palin, and when she tries her "why do some women..." horseshit just loop it back to Palin the disaster.

This freak loves Sarah Palin. I'm not going to change her mind. She's obviously a total
whack job.

It's best that I just insult her and make jokes.

Edited on Wed Jul-15-09 11:37 PM by Believing Is Art
I thought those went out in the mid-90s . . .

Just point out that Palin must not be very successful is she had to cut and run. Then request that she not message you again else you'll have to report it. No point in defending yourself against someone you don't know that makes it personal right out of the gate. Really there's no point in arguing about anything with some random loser on facebook.

17. Unfortunately by resorting to mocking her clothing/appearance
you're making her point as much as you are refuting it.

Based on that, I think your next reply should be to apologize and admit you were out of line on that, and instead of arguing about your personal life, list the Sarah Palin policies or statements which are idiotic. You can't really blame her for attacking you with "your critique has no merit or substance" when you haven't provided any.

...and I'm tired!

I mean really...if you have to EXPLAIN to someone why Sarah Palin is a holy nightmare from hell--haven't
you all ready lost them?

I have no hope that my measured, sound political argument would be met with anything but stupidity.

So, I'm just having a little fun.

And...by God--does that shirt look like a Christmas tree skirt or what? I totally nailed it!

39. If you aren't going to change her mind
maybe you should just drop it.

I don't really have any desire to join with you in making fun of some woman's photo. The shirt's not my taste, but lots of people dress in clothes that aren't my taste and I'm not one to talk - I spent my morning dressed in my army camo pants and a yellow plaid flannel shirt.

She accused you of being sexist, your initial response is to react in a sexist way and then come here to encourage others to trash her in sexist ways. And you are gleeful about that.

It's not your best side, I kind of wish if you're going to do it, at least you wouldn't bring it here.

63. I understand what you are saying...
I actually don't think it's nice to make fun of someone--and making fun of someone's clothes
isn't kind.

I really don't plan on replying to her. She emailed me and insulted me---and I ribbed her about
her sparkly, red shirt.

I think we're even now. I just knew that DUers--who can always make me smile and laugh--would have some
hilarious comebacks.

Instead of replying back to her--which would be silly nonsense--I don't even know this woman, I just thought
I would try to see the hilarious side to all of this. DUers always have the wittiest comments and they're always
able to make me smile.

I didn't like the nasty exchange this woman solicited--and rather than continue a conversation with her, I decided
to yuck it up a little with DUers.

67. I hope that you will contact the mods
and ask them to delete the thread (not just lock it). If she googles her name, this is what she will find - it pops up near the top of the page.

You can think she's a jerk, she's intolerant, she's wrong on everyone of the issues, she's any number of things ... but as a progressive you should have enough empathy to be able to put yourself in her shoes enough to imagine what it would be like to search your name and find a whole community making fun of how you look as a woman - and to realize that everyone else who looks you up will read that as well. This is playground bully stuff, and it's cruel, regardless of what kind of a jerk she is on her facebook page.

Others are suggesting that I stay above board, and keep the conversation politial--and about Palin.

Ok...this woman, who I don't know--sent me a message, accusing me of being jealous of Sarah Palin and her
wonderful attributes, and then she suggested that I could only wish that I had the wonderful traits that
Sarah has.

I don't think reason and wisdom are possible with this woman.

I probably won't reply to her...but I love your comment. Wonderfully witty!

57. This woman is a loon
Mrs. Stobbe shows just the perfect amount of reverence for women who have established themselves in their chosen field (or at least the field chosen for them by their husband or father).

Mrs. Stobbe is secure in her womanhood and faith in God to be proud of the successes other women achieve outside their marriage an within the bounds set by her husband or father.

Did Liberace have a sister?

38. Why does Melody think you're jealous?
Edited on Thu Jul-16-09 12:40 AM by Beartracks
She thinks if you don't agree that Palin would be a good president, you have a problem with successful women? That's on a par with people claiming that if you don't accept Michael Jackson's funeral coverage, you must be a racist. :eyes:

More to the point... while Palin may indeed be considered successful with her marriage, family and career, and can be considered intelligent and straightforward, there is no guarantee that those qualities make up for misguided ambition, drama-queenness, bad choices, and snarkiness that were on full display during the campaign and beyond. These behaviors were there for all to see, so you are able to make an informed opinion about Palin. Ms. Melody, on the other hand, has never seen YOU at all, so she can't possibly guess at your motivations, beliefs, shortcomings, or anything.

The last bit about Palin not being politically correct -- well, sometimes that can be a virtue. But being politically correct just for the sake of doing it is insincere and disingenuous.

Anyhow, stay away from the ad hominem attacks in your responses - picking on her shirt, for example, has absolutely nothing to do with anything. Keep the focus on Palin, who proved that being a straight shooter doesn't mean you're firing in the right direction or at the right targets.

56. I'm making a distinction...
Edited on Thu Jul-16-09 12:41 AM by Beartracks
... between intelligence and common sense, good judgment, etc. Obviously, she makes many blunders, exhibits an utter lack of class, proposes dangerous and wrongheaded policies, and says stupid things -- so did Bush -- but that doesn't mean she's a moron. (A morAn, yes, but not actually a moron.) Okay, I will agree that perhaps "intelligent" is too strong a word to ascribe to Palin's demonstrated abilities to walk and chew gum at the same time. But remember: even evil geniuses can be intelligent. That doesn't make them smart.

As far as straightforward, I meant only to refer to her "shoot from the hip" style. Of course, that's her own description of how she talks; but that kind of "straight talk" style doesn't mean that her words are accurate or never intended to deceive.

Sorry for the confusion (and alarm!). Hope this clears it up.

P.S. I also edited the original post slightly.

Yes, if I don't like Palin--then I must be jealous of successful women AND also lack that success myself.

Whatever.

I seriously think this woman has some mental issues. Who writes stuff like this to a person that they don't know?

I guess that's why I can't take her seriously. That's why I resorted to the Christmas tree remark. She's a total
loon.

I actually know some Palin supporters who are intelligent and thoughtful. This woman just isn't one of them.

Same here. I'm related to some of them! And they are not stupid people. But they are convinced of Palin's fitness for office.

You can't ACTUALLY be stupid and convince people that you're not. Although... I guess you could be stupid and have HANDLERS convince people you're not. But I digress... Even if Palin isn't stupid, that doesn't mean she's honest, or forthright, or qualified.

43. Successful with her career? Which one? The job she is quitting halfway through?
Edited on Thu Jul-16-09 12:42 AM by mitchum
Or being on the losing presidential ticket?
Or as a combatant with a teenage boy?
Or as a national punchline?

Successful with her family? The one that includes the son who chose the military rather than criminal charges? And the unwed teenage mother?

Ms Melody sure has some strange definitions for "successful"

47. I'll bet good money that this woman has a different flag banner for every holiday.
Snowman with holly, heart, shamrock, bunny 'n' eggs, you name it. And when there's a lull between holidays she pulls out the appropriate generic seasonal flag.

The boxer shorts adorned with little hearts is probably my all-time fave.

50. You know what you could do ...
... make her doubt her savior Palin.

She claims you're jealous of "women who are successful with marriage, family and career" and implies she's talking about Palin.

Well, remind her how "successful" Palin was/is in those areas.

Her career was going so well that not only did she not get a promotion, but she's now quitting to avoid scandal. Her family is in shambles because she takes advice from a witch doctor and (here's the one that will get her really going) her marriage is on the rocks as well.

Now, what she'll probably do is insist that Palin's marriage is perfect. Simply do not engage her in that part of your reply; continue on about Palin's failures as governor and mother. Only occasionally bring up her marital problems.

I added a bit in the Truthiness page for Mrs. Stobbe about Palin's failed marriage for ya: http://www.wikiality.com/Mrs._Melody_L._Judy_Stobbe

52. I would say:
Serious question, Melody: What makes Ms. Palin qualified to be the PRESIDENT of the United States? Why are your standards for who should be in the highest office of the land SO LOW???

68. Tell her it is not a good idea....
to type when you're sucking lemons. It also helps to have your brain cells firing with some syncronicity.

Hey! That's probably why she admires Palin. Palin's brain cells were never introduced. All three of them are independent contractors.

70. Palin successful? HAhahAhAHAhAA!
Successful means not quitting a 4 year term with 1.5 years left.
Successful means not having 20 ethics violations.
Successful means not losing in the Alaska pageant to a black woman and then saying "So the n*gg*r beat the b*tch" at dinner.
Successful means writing an ninth-grade level essay to a newspaper and not contradicting yourself.

I hammer her hard on those points, and if she comes back with a weak-sauce argument, bring up the kids.
Remember folks; this is Sarah Palin we're talking about here. She took the gloves off when she came with the "He pals around with terrorists" crap during the election. And the "real Americans" crap as well. She GAVE NO QUARTER, therefore she shall NOT RECEIVE ANY QUARTER.

76. One reason not to answer someone like that at Facebook...
I think that if you answer someone that you don't know and who isn't a friend of yours, they can see your page for a month. Block her now and she won't even be able to email you back. You never know just how crazy they are!

I once posted a nice comment about Biden on the White House page at Facebook and got a completely crazy email from some man in FL who had issues about Biden. How nuts does a person have to be to join a page or group they disagree with so that they can email or harass other members?

80. That's precisely what I'm thinking...
This woman is nasty. She looks like a nasty, bitter person.

I don't know anything about her and she knows nothing about me. Yet, she presumes that I'm jealous of Sarah Palin
because I lack a litany of wonderful qualities--that this woman assumes Sarah Palin has.

That's beyond bizarre. The fact that this woman is oblivious to how immature and foolish she sounds--makes me wonder
if she doesn't have a screw loose.

I would have welcomed a rational conversation about Palin--and why I disagree with her. I have friends who like Palin.

Someone who I don't know, emailing me and saying, "You're jealous cuz Sarah Palin is successful and beautiful and you're not"
is wacko.

82. Yes, that's what I'm wondering
"How nuts does a person have to be to join a page or group they disagree with so that they can email or harass other members?"

She could be some nutjob who is so obsessed with an email exchange that she'd do something like post her full name and a bunch of nastiness about her on some large forum just to get a mob mentality of posters to harass and insult her.

;)

Edited on Thu Jul-16-09 02:50 AM by lunatica
And then commend her on her insight.

She'll think you think she's talking about Palin, which, as I was reading it made me think she was.

85. Just saw this thread
and I agree with you. Delete her comments and ignore her. BLock her if you can. I'm on Facebook and haven't had any snarky comments made. But if I had I'd ignore the person. Why engage someone whose mind you can't possible change anyway?

90. That her logical fallacies are showing and she should have that fixed
Someone could trip over them and sue. She will then think that you have unfairly maligned her and will want to know if logical fallacies is something dirty and if so, she might alert on you for speaking porn at her on Facebook.

She wrote: "
"Why is it that women are so jealous of other women who are successful with marriage, family and career...oh, lets not forget, intelligent, straight forward and not polically correct, and pretty...is a reflection of what they don't see or want within themselves..."

What does "is a reflection of what they don't see or want within themselves" mean? Are women supposed to be jealous of what they don't have or not jealous because they don't want it? What does this mean because none of this post makes any sense or has a logical inference line that gets from one point to another with that phrase in it. Also, where is the line that speaks about jealousy? Are all women presumed to be jealous of others simply because they don't want them as a candidate or disagree with what they say? It is possible to not be jealous of someone and disagree with them or be jealous and still have rational disagreement so where is the proof of this.

Of course, none of this may be heard. I suggest you stick with the following:

"My coven determined last night that Ms. Palin was a threat to our Satanic plot to take over Wasilla. As I have missed a few midnight meetings of our prayer circle and nude orgy lately due to my kids summer camp schedule, I thought I would get in good with the High Priestess by, you know, showing jealousy of Sarah Palin in a poll on Facebook. You caught me. Boy are you sharp.

Curses, foiled again."
