There are even claims of a PUMA group which has nothing to do with wildcats or mountain lions, but with irate Hillary supporters. PUMA is apparently an acronym for "Party Unity My Ass". There is even a PAC apparently organized on the idea that Hillary supporters are so bitter and vindictive they will vote for Sen. McCain.
Well, somebody has done some digging on one of these groups. It appears that it was started by a McCain contributor, but there are already guesses it is a shill group for a shill group allowing GOP claims that it was actually a Democratic plot. What a twisted web is tangled by the media now and then. Anyway, take a look at the site below:
Pandagon on Pumas are "swiftboats There you will find more on this story:
I've been suspicious from the beginning about the existence of "PUMAs": Female Clinton supporters who are so bitter about her loss that they will throw equal pay, reproductive rights, the environment, and a chance at peace under the bus to get their revenge by voting for McCain. I'm skeptical even though they show up in comment threads all over the internet, claiming they're real. I'm skeptical even though they wrote Rebecca Traister letters claiming that they exist. I believe that the Republicans are cheerful rat-fuckers and therefore would not hesitate to set up a secretive operation of people running around claiming to be Clinton voters who are voting for McCain to keep the legend of the PUMAs alive. If you can convince people that there are PUMAs, then you accomplish two giant goals for the McCain campaign:Some documentation at the site pulled from the required filings of PAC groups, etc. Take a look for more information. Probably not the kind of thing that will gladden the hearts of those heartsick about the odds for Sen. McCain nor support the idea that there are a lot of real PUMAs out there. ***Stay tuned and check old posts here for information on actual mountain lions-- Doug Wiken
