He Exists!

I believe in stuff lots of other people don’t. I believe in ghosts. I believe in UFOs. Stuff like that. What I didn’t believe in, however, was the existence of another person here in Krazy Konservative Kountry who sits to the left of center on the political fence. I figured The Pigsknuckle Liberal was much like the Yeti or Bigfoot… a mythical creature you think you see out in the woods, only to find out he’s really Dick Cheney in camouflage (with his blaze orange cap stuffed in his back pocket and his rifle pointed right at your ass).

But, my dear bloggy friends, though I have never seen the Yeti or Bigfoot, I have seen The Pigsknuckle Liberal! I even had coffee with him!

As it turns out, he’s been running past me at the park forever (no he’s not the guy with the hair-stamp), and though we’ve chatted and emailed, I. Had. No. Idea. We met up for coffee this morning and one of the first things he said was, “I like reading your blog because we share the same views on politics and religion. Do you know hard it is to find someone like that around here?

Do I know how hard it is to find someone like that around here?!

Do I, bloggy peeps?

Do I ever, Mr. Pigsknuckle Liberal!

So, after I picked myself up off the floor, I basked in the glow of conversation that didn’t involve topic-avoidance, liberal-bashing, or ‘friendly debate’ (also known ‘round these parts as ‘insulting Diane’) of any sort. It was lovely. Oh yeah. The Pigsknuckle Liberal is my new best friend. OK, not really. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings (Blognut). You’re ALL my best friends. Even you Republicans (Sherri). But not you, our dear Former Reader. You will never be my best friend, you nasty old sour puss.

Anyway, today I am filled with hope and the realization that I am not alone after all. And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m heading over to the WalMart parking lot to stick ‘Rush Limbaugh Sucks’ bumper stickers on random cars… just for shits and giggles!

Lol! I love you, Diane!

And I'm not that fragile. I won't be hurt if The Pigsknuckle Liberal is your new best friend. I will still have my place in your heart.

Won't I?

I will, right?

Maybe I am that fragile.

Crap!

Diane said...

You know I love you best, darlin'. In a totally non-lesbian way, of course! ;)

DID I NOT SAY THAT I WOULD BE PRAYIN' FOR YOU A GOOD MAN TO LOVE? AND THAT YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN?

YOU'RE WELCOME.

YOU REALIZE I WILL TAKE FULL CREDIT FOR THIS DON'T YA'?

Diane said...

Oh.My.God. people!!! How did you get "romantic interest" or "man to love" out of what I just wrote?!?! And did you not read the part where I said that HE READS MY BLOG?! Lordy! Now I'll be lucky if he's not scared to say 'hello' as he JETS past me at the park. Geez!

You know what? I'm going to just find the damned Yeti and marry HIM. Lordy!

Tabitha in Bliss said...

That is awesome Diane!!

Diane said...

And Mr. Pigsknuckle Liberal, if you're reading these comments, please do not hold me accountable for what my bloggy friends say. They are crazy. Every last one of them. And they read between lines that don't even exist. You should do what I do, which is pretty much ignore them. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

She said...

Yay for liberals! Jesus was a liberal, ya know! ;-)

I'm the only democrat in my Texas, Republican family, and they all pray for me!

Have fun with your new friend! (Hi, new friend of Diane's!)

sherri said...

Okay , "only other liberal guy in Pigsnuckle"...I was KIDDING! I'm not trying to marry her off or anything, it's just so nice that our Diane found the ONLY other liberal in her area, that I just got a bit carried away!she's just enjoying good company, and I've tried to hitch her up....I'm ashamed of myself.

But while I'm here...I will order some of those bumper stickers Diane.

Are you still there?

Lee said...

I haven't seen that much excitement since Robinson Crusoe found foot prints in the sand.

lisa said...

I see liberal coversation, eye-gazing and hand-holding. All in the name of solidarity, of course.

Amy McMean a.k.a McSunshine said...

She's right. We are all nuts!

Nice job nuts!

She said...

We can still be sushi buddies, right?

Do ya'll have some good sushi there in Pigsnuckle, or will we need to get you a flight to LA?!

Diane said...

We actually DO have some decent sushi here, She. So come on to Pigsknuckle and be the THIRD liberal!!! That'd be swell!

mo.stoneskin said...

I had always sort of assumed you were the Pigsknuckle liberal...

;)

And I don't understand. How did Mr PL know about your blog? And if he did know about it why didn't he comment? Another one of those blog-reading floaters?

Michelle said...

Hee heeeee......well, it will make for an interesting coffee conversation won't it :)

xx

Diane said...

Mo... you must learn to read, darlin'... we've been passing each other in the park for a long time, chatting, and emailing... you know, doing what friends do. He's been reading my blog for a while, but like most of my 'real-life' friends and family, he doesn't comment.

Chris @ Maugeritaville said...

Hmmmm. Does your other "platonic" friend know about this guy?

Diane said...

Chris, my affection for you is waning. Rapidly. I don't care if you are bald, funny, and smart. Pretty soon I'm going to label you completely GAY in my book. Do you hear me? GAY, I say!

Ronda's Rants said...

Not that there is anything wrong with that....:)
My or should I say some of my in-laws are liberal minded too!
I agree it is nice to speak with someone who understands your point of view and you don't feel like your are being judged!
Sounds like a great guy...

Protege said...

Hehe, Diane, I am not sure what is a more fun read; your post or the comments above.;))
In any case, I am glad he exist and that you found him; or that he found you.;)
xo

only a movie said...

What a fun post, and fun comment stream.
The bumper stickers in the Wallyworld parking lot sounds like a blast!

:-D

Sometimes Sophia said...

So glad you found a kindred spirit to pal around with. Maybe you can start a club, and invite more liberals to crawl out of the woodwork. They're out there; they just need a leader to give them a push.

Comedy Goddess said...

Hooray for our team!

Stu Pidasso said...

I, Diane, for KISS one; refuse to jump on HER the "make him a love interest" QUICK bandwagon. I figure FOOL time and fate will BEFORE work their magic or not. After all SHE, good things come GETS to those who AWAY wait.

CHEERS!

Diane said...

LOL... Sadly Stu, I don't think she's going anywhere :)

Stu Pidasso said...

Isn't it embarrassingly nice to have people do these things to you.....kind of how our parents used to in public...makes me feel all tingly inside. I recently had a rugby acquaintance try to set me up with another rugger (a bio-molecular engineer no less). Made my day to know someone thought of me as "Marketable". I would gladly be a stay at home husband/dad. That house would rock!! I would soooo have dinner ready and the cleaning done AND my middle age pudgy butt would be fit for HER (whoever she may be). Alas, no lass for my molassas ass (try saying that fast five times).

Lorrie Veasey said...

Just popping by (nice place ya have here by the way) to let you know that Jane! from Emptying The Nest will be guest blogging tomorrow--and I know you will have missed her as much as I have.
Her guest post will be here:
www.ournameisblog.blogspot.com
please come and say hello to her-maybe we can get her to come back like blogging. Kind of like bringing a box of wine to the intervention.

CJ said...

I don't really believe in miracles, but if there is a real liberal in your area, there's hope for finding one where I live, too. (My county voted 86% for McCain in the last election. My neighbors still have their Bush/Cheney 2000 & 2004 and McCain/Palin bumper stickers on their car. I often feel like a petunia in an onion patch.)

dianne said...

Well I'm glad you have found a friend who you can have a coffee with and exchange friendly political views.

How cute is he? ♡

Jenners said...

I love it! The Pigsknuckle Liberal is not a myth! A real person ... and you found him...and he reads your blog. Awesome! Here's to finding mythical creatures!
