Under the Bus Denial: You might be Experiencing It

Hello, my name is Dakinikat  and I’ve been under the bus since Obama and the DNC told the U.S. that they didn’t need Hillary Voters to win the GE.  Since I am now a veteran of under-the-bus syndrome,  I have been authorized to point out symptoms and suggested cures for those of you from Daily Kampf, Huffpoop, and even my old haunt FireDawgFLake that have just recently been thrown UNDER THE BUS.  Let me help walk you through Under the Bus Denial.

Yes, I know, you’re standing there, thinking… why did he throw me under the bus.  

Yesterday I was important.  Yesterday I was a person with a vote  that counted.

Remember, this is your first clue.  There is a meeting held some where in a dark room where he finally says something to the effect of:

However, I need to make a decision in the next few months as to how I manage that since I’m running against John McCain, which takes a lot of time. If women take a moment to realize that on every issue important to women, John McCain is not in their corner, that would help them get over it.”

Rep. Diane Watson, D-Calif., a longtime Clinton supporter, did not like those last three words — “Get over it.” She found them dismissive, off-putting.

Yes, Representative Diane Watson, you are under the bus.  You must embrace it in order to heal and move forward.  You know you’re beginning to get better when the Unity Pony comes calling and something seems to be amiss.

I’ve chose a few posts from Huffpoop (yes they are real) about the FISA position.  Perhaps you’ll recognize some of the symptoms and realize you too, could be suffering from under the bus denial.

“Choking on all that Kool-Aid I drank after Iowa. wow! I feel like Barack just punched me.”

This definitely is symptomatic of coming to terms with being UNDER THE BUS.

“I think it’s time for some emails to the Senator’s senate office pointing out that we the people, who have funded his campaign, are not pleased.”

Sorry, sweetie, you are in strong denial of being under the bus.  Please get with an Under-the-Bus partner and by all means, go to OTHER websites.  LOOK for the PUMA LABEL.  You can be helped.

“why wouldn’t he give us a taste of that change we yearn for? why won’t he be the leader that we are all expecting him to be? it doesn’t seem like this would be such a hard battle for him to fight…especially since we have been told he taught constitutional law. 41 senators is all he would need to fillibuster this bill. do you honestly believe that would be a difficult task for him to accomplish? just seems to me that this is the opportune time for him to show us what kind of president he will be.”

Yes, classic denial.  Notice the fleeting hope that this yet might be resolved some other way than saying “I’m now UNDER THE BUS”.  

“If he is forced, politically, to support some bill or other, how is going to bring the kind of change he has promised us? I’ve never heard such orginal excuses as I have seen on this thread this morning. Can’t we just be honest about it and say that if all the other Democrats were wrong to support it, so was he?”

Wow, that is a strong sign of moving from the denial of being thrown under the bus, to the anger of being thrown under the bus.  This blogger at HuffPoop has actually come a long way in less than 24 hours.  Now, here’s my advice for those of you in this place.

Remember just to wake up tomorrow and say:


“Hello, my name is Cheetoh”

and I’ll be right there …. Hello Cheetoh.  Then you say this,

“and I’ve been Under the Bus for 1 day now.”


Then go to your computer and THEN to this site:  http://www.justsaynodeal.com/

What you will find is at least 18 million others who were also thrown under the bus and we’re all here to help you.

    Dakinikat – did you happen to belong to the Hillary Rodham Clinton fan club when you lived in Nebraska? (I was in Elkhorn in 1998/99)

  2. dakinikat says:

    Nope … I was down here in New Orleans by then …

  3. wry says:

    I was in denial for a long time. I’m better now. I like it here, under this bus. I didn’t realize I was a racist until an Obama bot from my own family told me so.
    So here I am…not getting over it. Ol racist me.In denial no more.

    Oh yes, I truly enjoyed reading comments today on Huffpo & TPM 🙂 I kept chuckling to myself because I knew all along that Obama was a fraud. Let’s hope that these new members of Under the Bus will remember how Obama crushed there dreams and not get starry eyed again no matter what he promises. Some of the funnier posts were those still clinging to their hope of the Messiah saying that Obama “promises” to deal with it once he’s Prez. I can’t understand how people don’t see his lies after his daily 180s on all his previous stances. I can’t keep up with all of them this week…pretty soon he’ll start sounding like GWB III 😆

    I especially liked the naive one who wrote “we the people, who have funded his campaign.”

    Been under the bus before I even knew it.
    Baby Boomer, woman, voter, concerned about the fights of the 60’s and 70’s, remembering Clinton’s legacy, loathing Reagan’s – I’ve been thrown under the bus so many times, i don’t know which side is up!
