The Most Important Post I Will Ever Write: StrangeAppar8us Needs Our Help

My dear friend Strange has suffered a terrible, life-altering traumatic brain injury, which has left him blind. He is hospitalized and expected to survive, but has little in the way of resources, so we are doing what we can for him. Here is the fundraiser our jolly little mutual blog is running for him.

 We can't hope to cover his massive hospital bills, but down the road he'll be needing adaptive technology which may help him write again, and other items that will help him adjust, we hope and pray, to this new world.

This is a terrible time financially for many of us, I know, but please consider doing what you can: no amount, including a dollar, is too small. And to any of my Right-Wing Christian Conservative friends who might conceivably stop by from time to time: yes, this guy is a big honking liberal, but as you know from our acquaintance, good people transcend politics.

 Strange is a dear, sweet soul who was the person everybody in his neighborhood came to with their troubles. He took in strays, whether cats or people, and found homes for them. A lot of the cats he kept; at one time he had eight. He emailed me one night when a wealthy couple came to him with a badly ill stray whom he called "the little stranger." For one night in that little cat's life, she had a box with a soft blanket, and a catnip toy. She was obviously not going to make it, and he took her to the vet to be put out of her misery the next day.

Of course the wealthy couple stuck him with the vet bill.

If you are low on funds before the holidays, don't worry: the fundraising for our wonderful, erudite, witty, kind, friend will be ongoing. Pitch in what you can, when you can. Goodness knows, he'd do the same for anybody else. And thank you. Whatever you give will make a distinct difference in his life.

RW Pearlclutching Claptrap Of The Day: ZOMG, BLINGATE!!1!!

Populist Palin shocked at the excess!
Dancing while the 10% unemployed burn!!!!1!!!
Oh relax, Populist Sarah Palin. Michelle's diamond cuffs were borrowed, and giving a boost to the billion-dollar American fashion industry is one of the First Lady's functions. Just ask Nancy Reagan!  For that matter, does "belly of the plane" ring a bell?

I'm sorry Hillbuzz has decided to pick on Nancy~~again!~~for her desire to kick up her borrowed heels during a time of high unemployment such as the 10% plus of the Reagan years. I thought they liked her. It seems rather mean to do that to an old lady. But Kathleen has to do something to fling up a post while Kevin's on yet another walkabout, and reheated Weasels is better than nothing at all! Well, nearly better.

Brought to you as always by Mrs. Polly of Snarkopolitan, the Undead Blog, noting that the devoted Kathleen's attempt to fill in for Kevin and liveblog the ninnies' debate was breathtaking in its detail except she didn't seem to hear them boo the gay soldier! She should call a television repairman about that!

Hillbuzz: Don't Even Ask

Kevin Dujan's Little Helper Awarded Medal Of Error!
Profound apologies to Phil Silvers fans
This is a proud day for America and Snarkopolitan. No, I refer not to the ending of DADT, though watching the men and women who have long served their country at last being able to experience the freedom they enlisted to defend made me a bit teary. But that was yesterday's news, and time, like the newly out-and-proud American soldier, marches on!

 Today, Snarkopolitan is pleased to announce the creation of the SnarkoBuzz Medal of Error, awarded for the saddest evidence of delusional thinking by the poor creatures in thrall to World's Crappiest Cult Leader over at Harvey Bilk's Emporium of Cut-Rate Hate and Moneygrubbing, Hillbuzz.*
*Note: this is not an award for mere stupidity or hatefulness, since Snarkopolitan is a little blog and couldn't handle the volume.

The first winner, a man of deep sentiment and even deeper pockets, appears in the Do We Like That Obama ended DADT? Don't Ask thread, where gays are fine as long as they stick to providing first-class conservative commentary and stay out of the shower. Yes, Kevin's got a civil-rights-averse enclave of homophobes cheerily attacking female and gay soldiers on his very own blog. Gays are part of Obama's plan to ruin the military, and will get preferential treatment! Women shouldn't be where testosterone-riddled manimals could get at them, for their own silly good! 

Perhaps someone from the Israeli Army should train our U.S. forces in proper military conduct, since the Hillbuzzers have so little faith in our troops. The Israeli army is integrated, both gender and preference, and nobody complains that they don't get the job done.

But our Medal recipient, Blog-Ad evergreen newtlove, wishes to remind us that while heroic gay men and women undertook to serve their country by hiding their orientation, they weren't as forthright as his hero Harvey Bilk, who tried to enlist, but was turned away for being too honest:

(They weren't as honest with their recruiters as Kevin was, and so they got in.) 

The One, The Loud

Snarkopolitan has tried to help Harvey achieve his dream before, and from his latest absence, we can only infer that he has taken his shoulder-mounted ghost-nuns and run off to make good on his commitment to God and country by joining up.  Heaven bless you, soldier! I'm sure they'll snap you up; the Marines having fought DADT the hardest, they are now recruiting the LGBT community the hardest, because they want to be the best at everything.  
Drop And Give Me Ten, Dujan!
Simper Feh

RW Pearlclutching Claptrap Of The Day: ZOMG, UMBRELLAGATE!

YooHoo, Megan "Only Douchebags do it"  Fox!
You should watch your filthy mouth, young lady. Or perhaps wash it; putting your foot that far in is bad enough, without stepping in a load of something first.
Megan Fox loathes people like this!
Took me 30 seconds of teh Google to find this image. If this is a sample of your researching skillz, what a wonderful fit you are for Hillbuzz! Add in your tasteful race-baiting invocation of "slaves," plus P. Diddy and Michael Jackson, and Neville Chamberlain for variety, and you've got quite the virulent hatefest.

Ironic that the President created a sensation on his first state visit to China for carrying his own umbrella, isn't it?
Is there a problem, Mr. Premier?
Megan Fox is not entirely to blame for her own silliness; she just obediently picked up the story from some RW propaganda factory like Weasel Zippers and added just enough hysteria to attract other people disposed to fume over a non-story involving their favorite hate-object.

At least Kevin would be creative. Where has he got to, anyway?

A Visit To The Hillbuzz Sock Drawer

Whatever happened to dear Sebastian Gray, who wrote "Gray Matters" for Hillbuzz? Good old "Bast" had his own snappy graphic and everything.  Here he is, as designed by "our good friend Theresa" and modeled by Kevin, his biggest booster:
Kevin Dujan Has A Hole In His Sock
"Theresa" is good at capturing a likeness!

"Bast's" good friend Kevin liked his writing so much, he gave him his own twice-weekly column, although he wrote about "Bast" (and all the crew at Buzzquarters) as if he thought "Bast" would never read it.

Here's Kevin writing with, shall we say, notable vehemence about "Bast's" ex-boyfriend's battleaxe of a mother:
Kevin Dujan Loved His Smurf Clock!
So Kevin, how do you really feel about Sebastian's boyfriend David's Mother?
Sebastian had worse traumas, though, than losing his Smurf Clock to the thrice-married harridan (who even merits her own tag: "Louella the twice-divorced publicly shamed adulteress"): he was mugged. In New York City. By Blacks.

Hillbuzz Suffering Halfsphynxiation

American Artemis In CleoPalin Finery, With Sacred Dujbeetle
Harvey Bilk is prognosticating again: SHE'S RUNNING!  How does he know, when the American Artemis, or as I like to think of her, the Wassilla Sphynx, won't even tell her lamestream buddy Greta?

Because she's looking Presidential in Pink! Fashion maven Kevin doesn't remember seeing her in pink before!

Because she didn't mention the actual candidates' names! She just ran them down pointedly enough to make clear whom she was talking about. Clever!

Except for Newt! She gaves props to the man who's just running to pay some bills, as we all know, wink wink! No harm fluffing him. So presidential!

Because she praised the Tea Party and "We the People" and the Pioneering Spirit! Nobody does that who isn't running for president!

And she slammed President Obama! That settles it!

Kevin Dujan, Political Analyst

Back in 2008, I actually came up with a slogan for the Republican Party that I’ve tried giving them for two years now, and nobody ever wanted to do anything with it.
I think it’s something we could have a lot of fun with, so I’ve decided just to run with it here on to see what our more creative readers can come up with to fit the theme.
The slogan is:

Republicans: Not as evil as you think.

An American Artemis For Hillbuzz


O Great Grisly Mama of the Frozen North, Our American Artemis, your followers cry out to you for nourishment, yet none will you give them save the words "my plan," on which they suck even down to the last crumb, for from within to draw the nugatory virtue.

 We venerate thee, Fecund One, who appeareth now here, now there, wherever the light shineth on someone else, for though the voices of our tribe now raise up against thee, we will never falter in our devotion, no matter how embarrassing

Just ask Hillary.

Only@Tea: Palin Rally Speaker Eric Golub's HighLARious Jokes About Special Needs Children Get Crickets From Hillbuzz

So, Teahadists, you may have carry permits, but what if the proper weapon is a rotten tomato? In Indianola, at yesterday's Greatest Announcement Rally Ever To Never Feature An Announcement, painfully unfunny stockbroker/"comedian" Eric Golub joked about the youngest Palin being "defective:"

Palin “has such a value for human life, that she would even bring a child into this world she knew that modern medical technology would show that would be defective ideologically like Nancy Pelosi.”

What a wretch.  You'd think he'd have had to leave the stage under the assault of whatever overripe produce was to hand, but from the devoted Palinista crowd, crickets.

Hillbuzz: Protest In Person? Let's Not Be Too Hasty!

Kevin Dujan, ACTIVIST!

When it comes to fighting for the good name (or the chance to use it, anyway) of the youngest Palin, Kevin Dujan is a Grizzly! A Lion! His rage will not be brooked! He will give no quart--

--You mean, actually go there? Like, in person? Um, and bring Justin and the other boyz? Oh, never mind.

What Would Hillbuzz Do Without Suckers?

Awful Merman
So since Kevin Dujan has managed to whip up a good profitable head of fury over a thoughtless aside about the youngest Palin, whose name Kevin constantly uses as a kind of all-purpose spray-on outrage freshener, you'd think somebody might question front-pager (and major contributor) Newt Love's thoughtless use of the pejorative suffix "tard." Wouldn't you?

Hillbuzz Makes Mountain Out Of BuzzHill, Using Youngest Palin

Kevin Dujan Erasing Reality Again
When Dujans Attack, Even Deleting Won't Help You!

Kevin Dujan complaining about deleted comments is like Casey Anthony complaining about bad parenting. But even after the makers of "only@brunch", a video apparently meant to be shown at his local gay bar, apologized and edited out an offensive remark he complained to them about, they are still the latest targets of his undying wrath, which has stretched now to five  six posts and well over 8,000 10,000 words. **UPDATE** And now includes harassing an anti-bullying charity started by famously pro-LGBT straight footballer, Ben Cohen, for the crime of having an upcoming fundraiser at the bar which showed this video two weeks ago.

Let's cut to the chase immediately: one of the participants in this video made an ill-advised comment about Trig Palin. To be specific, while discussing Michele Bachmann, one man giggled, "She looks like Trig!"  The other men around the table may or may not have heard the comment, which was neither responded to or elaborated on. They continued to talk about Bachmann before moving on to other subjects, and Trig was never brought up again.

That was the whole "attack" in its entirety. It was a mean thing to say, certainly, and stupid.

Ouch, Kevin Dujan, You've Snapped My Credulity!

Oh sweet heaven.

Do you know of an accurate list of cities and venues where “The Undefeated” is playing?

I am very eager to see the Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated” but it’s not playing here in Chicago.
There was, apparently, a one-time, unpublicized showing of the movie — for one screening only — that I didn’t hear about.  With no press or advertisement, hundreds of people still turned out for it.
Evidently, the film is packed wherever it is being shown…but it’s only a handful of theaters.
Does anyone know of an accurate list of where it is playing?

Here, Harvey Bilk, let me help you find a clue.

You Never Write, You Never Call --Kevin Dujan Is Back At Hillbuzz

Kevin Dujan Donation Fever
And his own admin accidentally debunked his New Website $ob-$tory. 

Kevin Dujan  returned to Hillbuzz after another prolonged absence, ascribing it to chronic ill-health. But his current flock hive of shearlings worker bees doesn't know that the last time he went AWOL, he came back with a different heartrending tale.

Now it is the official position of Snarkopolitan to wish everyone the best of health.  So if Kevin Dujan is as ill as he says, this "out to get him" blog's proprietress hopes he makes a complete recovery.

But it's not like Dujan hasn't pulled this disappearing act before, as detailed in the post below.

Hillbuzz Dujan Vue Part Deux: Where Is Kevin Dujan AGAIN?

Where In The World Is Harvey Bilk NOW?
                             Kevin Dujan, no longer Sub-Rosa

Helloooo Hillbuzzers again! This is your unreasonably friendly hostess Mrs. Polly, (just ask some conservative friends, in, um, high places ;^}) telling you to try looking up the Hillbuzz July '09 archives. Yes, try all you want, but you won't find them, because that was the last time Kevin and his many personalities went seriously, mysteriously, AWOL.

 Now I go AWOL from poor old neglected Snarkopolitan all the time, but then I am not trying to build a major online presence, don't hit people up for money, or inveigle them into doing pro-bono work for the Cause while keeping them entirely in the dark. (Yoo-hoo Admin~ ever wonder who "Chrissy" was? She was the one who did all that work before you, was mistreated, and left.)

Hillbuzz: Hint From An Events Planner

if it’s a movie screening, and you want to meet whomever is going to speak afterwards, sit in the front row dead center if you can…because that is where the person will stand with a microphone to address the crowd.

Hillbuzz Rotating Begathon Collected!

From the $hillbuzz Dept of We've Seen This Before:
"Help support our move to the new site! This graphic does not display real-time statistics, (it sure doesn't, and how! - ed.) so check back often for updates."
~~Kevin Dujan, Propietor of
Hillbuzz~ Condemned to Eternal Donation
(Shillbuzz graphic courtesy Fundraising Ideas Center, with Blinged-out alterations by Mrs. Polly)

Due to some now-resolved health problems, I have been on Blogging Sabbatical for a few months. In these dark, crazy times, it's nice to find that a few eternal verities apply, and nothing could be more eternal or stable than Kevin Dujan's need for YOU poor Shillbuzzers to send HIM money, so he can open his new revenue-producing website for YOU. Look, the new, de-Hillarified (Madame Secretary must be grateful that her nasty buzzing tinnitus is cured--it's a miracle!) site is just about ready. And what a graphic! The fly-headed, testes-winged, drip-bodied insects who don't know up from down have a flight path weirder than Woodstock's--it's perfect.

So what's the hold-up? You should pardon the expression. It must be that YOU have not yet sent Kevin Dujan enough money for this new ad-supported site.

Now Dujan has a swell United Way-style thermometer to show you how YOU have failed him. He tells you to check back for frequent updates, but there are no frequent updates. That thermometer is just plain stuck at 1,000 $Hillbucks. Here he promised the new site in February, and gosh, it's almost the end of March.What's wrong with you people, not sending him enough money for the massive servers needed to handle all the massive traffic needed by a growing site like Shillbuzz!
Don't you want him to fight the battles he keeps promising to fight from a powerful platform capable of storing OVER 100 MEGABYTES OF ARCHIVES??? Other than a ten-dollar thumbdrive, or my 4 gigabyte Mp3 player, how can such a vast record of $Hillwitt be preserved?

Of course, waves of now-disgusted-and-departed Hillbuzzers (you can find a whole bunch of them here) will recognize the tin cup marked "NEW WEBSITE" he's shaking. They've seen it before. It's only one of many begs in a regular kaleidoscope of begging, all the elements tumbling together in endless variation, producing endlessly dazzling patterns of guilt-tripping, passive-aggressive demands, mixed with sugar crystals and tiny American flags.

Poor old neglected Snarkopolitan has somehow managed to get Google Ads without shaking down our 4.5 devoted readers, plus YouTubes and, if we (that is, Mrs. Polly) were really vindictive, BlogTalk Radio too, all for free. But the creativity Kevin Dujan, or Harvey Bilk to his former friends, displays in all his varied and constant begs, is astonishing, and so without further ado, Snarkopolitan presents:

~~The Begs of Kevin Dujan~~

(note: Dujan keeps his begging posts up for weeks or months, so the date collected doesn't reflect when each beg first appears)

Moving over to the new site, on our own dedicated servers, is the biggest and most expensive project we have ever tackled. There’s nearly 100MB of data archived
in the three years since HB began. If you have been a fan of what we do in the past and look forward to what the new site can accomplish, anything you could chip in towards defraying the costs of the move is appreciated. If reading our content has been worth $5 or $10 to you, now is the time when your help make us better than we ever could have been stuck here on WordPress.

We’re in the process of moving to a new site on a secure, dedicated server. Backing up our 2+ years of archives is expensive, and the new server means monthly fees we’ll have to pay going forward. If you enjoy the political and humorous content you get here, consider chipping in to help defray these costs. Help us get to where we are ad-supported on the new site and HB can pay for itself in 2011 and beyond. It’s a lot of hard work, and it’s expensive, so your help is appreciated. (Collected 12/29/10)

If you like what we do here on WordPress, and you read us every day, please consider chipping in to help us save towards getting a new site on a dedicated server where we can then be ad-supported in the future and wouldn’t have to ask for help to fund our political activities. Right now, this is all coming out of pocket for us, and we just never can save up enough to get a new site off the ground. (Collected 11/17/10)

We literally put every cent we had into the ground game for this midterm election.

This is the homestretch of the 2010 election. We’re putting everything we’ve got into a nonstop, on-the-ground push here in Chicago…against stalwart Obama allies who are vulnerable for the first time in their careers. We’re also ginning up ground opposition to Rahm Emanuel’s Mayoral bid, and will start that effort in earnest November 3rd.

From now until Election Day, we are pooling everything we have for an all-out effort to take down Jan Schakowsky here in Chicago. She is currently only leading her opponent Joel Pollak by 18 points, instead of the 40-something she normally leads in re-election bids. Schakowsky is a terrible Congress critter, and is married to convicted felon Robert Creamer, who wrote Obamacare in prison. She is vulnerable, and scare, and we’re committed to spending 6 hours a day, every day, from now until November 2nd to do all we can to take her down. Whatever you can throw our way will be added to what we’ve collected amongst ourselves to cover the printing of palm cards, gas and Zip cars to hit Schakowsky’s whole district, and everything else we need to make sure an independent effort is made to ask enough Schakowsky muscle-memory voters why they remain loyal to her so that they just sit home on Election Day and this awful person is booted from Congress.

With your help, we could conceivably double or even triple what we would be able to do without you… so $5 or $10 will help A LOT to make sure, together, we get to every house, every business, every store, and every street in Schakowsky’s district.

This is the best chance EVER to defeat her…and if she goes down, a stauch Obama accomplice, it will reverberate through the halls of the DNC like nothing else. (Collected October 22, 2010)

Harvey Bilk Scalps Shillbuzzers
Dujan was just exhausted from canvassing by Election Day, but not too exhausted to post the usual quarter mile of verbiage, none of it describing any experiences (unlike his Halloween posts) he had, or whom he met, or how many palm cards he printed up with the money he begged for! Nor did he include any images of palm cards, or indicate any content, etc. Why, it's almost as if none of it ever......

We’re saving up to build a new site that will be ad-supported in the future (which we can’t do here on WordPress) and to archive everything that’s been created for the last two years here on HillBuzz, as well as investing in some marketing initiatives that will grow our readership and make the new site self-supporting in the months ahead. If you like what you read here every day, and get enjoyment from it, we appreciate any help you can give as we make this push to grow and become a bigger presence in the political and satire worlds.

We don’t have a lot of time to pull this together, but we’re going to try to head over to Des Moines, Iowa on September 17th to cover Governor Sarah Palin’s appearances there…culminating in the Reagan Dinner that night.

We’ve actually been through a few rounds of this already, where we’ve worked with people who said they were going to help us get off WordPress and onto a new site of our own, with better ability to do what we want to do, but then for whatever reason things fall apart. ("whatever" is working harder here than an Alabama chain-gang in August-ed.)

It’s almost always been a funding issue, with the expense of doing the things we need to have done in terms of backup protection and server space and bandwidth usage being prohibitively high — especially when we weigh those costs against doing things we think are more important, like going to various political events and getting more items to write about. (sadly, Mr. Dujan seems not to have shown up at any of the events for which he begged traveling funds, except the Glenn Beck rally, where he alone showed up despite begging money for his imaginary friends to come along, and about which none of "them" posted any recaps, despite promising to. In fact, he didn't even show at the Chicago Conservatives 4 Palin meet-up, which would have cost him nothing but a little time.)
