The Coffee Party Percolates Over With Passive Aggressive Whining

Bless their hearts. A friend pointed out via email that the only bit of this article at Politico, describing Coffee Party leadership discontent, that is necessary in order to understand what happened is this part:

“We are writing to you because it is our belief that much can be learned from the experience of the Interim Board, and the dynamics on the Board which we believe seriously impeded our process. We would like to identify some issues which, from our point of view, have become problems within the Coffee Party, and which, if not corrected, will hinder its success,” wrote ousted board members Bahiya Cabral-Johnson, Teri Torres-Hart and Sabina Virgo in an open letter.

Ah, the old liberal whine-fest stand-by; the open letter. Wonder if they got some tips from Michael Moore? I assume only if they offered him donuts with his coffee. Anyway, note the three names of the ousted board members.

You see, it is not so much a Coffee Party as it is a coffee klatch gone bitchy. Meow, ladies!

    Only 67% of them have hyphenated last names. They’ll have to try to do better next time.

    Discovering that the Coffee Party even still exists must rank in there with discovering that the Shakers are still around and Hobbits are still living in The Shire.

    :^D :^D :^D :^D :^D @Pat above: These are not Hobbits, they are called Boggies, and they live in the Sty.

    ” Slow and sullen, yet dull, they prefer to lead simple lives of pastoral squalor. They don’t like machines more complicated than a garrote, a blackjack or a Luger …. As a rule they now avoid us, except on rare occasions when a hundred or so will get together to dry-gulch a lone farmer or hunter. … They seldom exceed three feet in height, but are fully capable of overpowering creatures half their size when they get the drop on them. … Their faces have a pimply malevolence ….”

    “They give dull parties and cheap gifts, and they enjoy the same general regard and esteem as a dead otter.”

    “Their beginnings lie far back in the Good Old Days when the planet was populated with the kind of colorful creatures you would have to drink a quart of Old Overcoat to see nowadays.” —- Harvard Lampoon, “Bored of the Rings”

    BTW, Snark and Boobs, thanks for the email notice on this and other posts, been so busy I have not been able to check my blog list in the morns!
