"They're watching us and laughing... to them we are pussies. It's like they look at us and they're like, 'Oh, look at those wimpy little pussies.'"

Fabio talks politics. Thats what he says about Abu Ghraib. On Iraq:
"Those people, they hate us no matter what," he says. "And you know, we started the fight, so let's finish it. You can't just walk away with your back to them, because they gonna stab you."

But don't get excited, Republicans. He's for Hillary:
"She's so smart," he says. "And with her, you're getting two with one. You know I love women, because I owe my success to women. To me, it will be the biggest reward. I would love for the first time to have a woman president."

And with Hillary in charge, he says, the Iraqi insurgents better watch out. "When a woman gets pissed off at you," he says, "she's going to get you, you know?"

I know.

Why not have Hillary run with Fabio as VP? Certainly, no worse than many and much more telegenic! If Hillary happens to eat the McKinley Samich, The World would have to Love President Fabio!

She could pose with Fabio with the slogan, "Bill's not the only one!"

Ron said...

I could just see the Hillary/Fabio bodice-ripper book cover..."Twilight's Last Gleaming."

MadisonMan said...

Doesn't Palladian do photoshop? I think he should make the book cover.

AllenS said...

They look at Fabio and say: "Oh, look at him, he has such long and pretty hair."

He's not half wrong.

Not entirely sure the insurgents are going to be concerned about sleeping on the couch.

Jeff is right about Hillary. If we want a woman in the White House who will scare the terrorists **itless, lets elect Lorena Bobbit.

jeff said...

I suppose she might hit one in the head with a thrown lamp, but for every terrorist we hit in the head with a lamp, we create 10 more. Or something like that.

Jennifer said...

That's deep, man.

jeff said...

It's one reason I support shooting them instead.

Freeman Hunt said...

Heh.

I would like to read more Fabio commentary, not just on politics.

jeff said...

"UNEASY RIDER Despite his love of motorcycles, Fabio is concerned about America's dependence on fossil fuels"

Despite? Despite? My bike gets 40-50mpg depending on how hard I ride it. Who writes this stuff?

JohnAnnArbor said...

I remember a while back Fabio wrote his own romance novel, and one of the lady writers was not amused. She said that pretty men should be seen, not heard.

Jeremy said...

What's he doing? Between Obama, Thompson and Paul don't we have enough candidates that we can imagine to be exactly whatever we want them to be?

Paul Zrimsek said...

Don't be so coy, Fabio. What sort of nasty rumors is she going to have Sid Blumenthal spread about al-Qaeda?

Joshua said...

Fabio nicely summarizes the Republican foreign policy position.

Legal Scholarship said...

How exciting it must be for you to be able to say "pussies" twice in one post. But I still don't see how or why I would ever want to evolve -- I mean, devolve -- in the direction of this virtually scholarship-free blog.

Ron said...

Fabio's various Life Quests brings him to Madison (or Brooklyn, as appropriate!) where he sweeps our bloggeress off her feet. Does she give Blogger and Madison for a passionate life...wherever Fabio lives, and WordPress? Or does she Let The Decision Stand (our Title!) and stay a lawprof?

JohnAnnArbor said...

But I still don't see how or why I would ever want to evolve -- I mean, devolve -- in the direction of this virtually scholarship-free blog.

Um, Althouse writing stuff doesn't mean she thinks people should be just like her. Your comment is bizarre. Her blog isn't about you.

an empty vessel for the fantasies of flyover state housewives

The biggest Fabio fan I ever met was an East Coast career woman. Go figure.

I nominate this article as "Hoot of the Day," and not just for the writing alone.

My absolute favorite bit:

"I have a business mind," he explains. "I come from a business family. My father was the second man in the world to build conveyor belts. I love business, and I love people."

knoxwhirled said...

What a disjointed collection of non sequiturs. Fabio the mimbo doesn't disappoint

Not a problem. Just shoot over your address and I will dispatch a emergency response team to rescue you from the person holding a gun to your head, forcing you to read this blog.

"Fabio nicely summarizes the Republican foreign policy position."

In what way? Come on Joshua. Own your position. Tell us why. Or are you just another Chris/Lucy wanna be?

Gedaliya said...

Who is "Fabio"?

john said...

If Hillary wins, will her new proposed health plan cover nipple enhancements?

Pussies is synecdoche (part for the whole), like asshole.

Try it.

They're watching us and laughing ... to them we are assholes.

See?

On this thread I mentioned another aging self-parody, Elvira Mistress of the Dark.  I was hoping Althouse would do a vlog with her next time.

Elvira is obviously more intelligent than Fabio.  She's better at acting.  She's funnier.  And, to me at least, a lot easier on the eyes.  Why not ask her what she thinks of foreign affairs?

I suspect she's all for them.

And for those of you who pretend to want Althouse to do nothing but a serious (and boring) law blog ("you, a law professor!"), just take a look at Althouse's Karsh-like blog portrait.  Do you think that woman ever would be boring?

Palladian said...

"And, to me at least, a lot easier on the eyes."

Hell, I'm gay and I think she's a hell of a lot easier on the eyes. Fabio's disgusting.

"Why not ask her what she thinks of foreign affairs?"

Unfortunately, given that she's a PETA supporter, I'm not sure I'd be impressed by her foreign policy. She wouldn't bend over backwards trying to deal with foreign enemies.

She would, however, happily bend over forwards.

Ron said...

Ah, I see Sullivan has linked here already! Poor Andrew, just another Fabio-wannabee...

Could we not write the Elvira/Fabio ticket as sublime Hillary/Bill parody? Oh, yes...

Could we not connect the Federal Nipple Enhancement program to Hillary's new energy policy? Reform topless laws throughout the land and distribute solar panel pasties. Throw in the bump and grind of burlesque, connected Prius-like to some kinda flywheel battery storage, and we'd get at least as much energy as geothermal...

Ron said...

The terrorists think we fear their jihad? If they saw Elvira have her nipples on The Button, knowing full well there would be no Mutually Assured D├ęcolletage, our victory would be assured...

TMink said...

Hey Legal Scholarship, I tried to check out your blog to see some real legal depth, a discussion of the issues, witty posts, hard thinking, that sort of thing.

Only you have no blog.

Not even a profile.

Lightweight.

MadisonMan said...

Who is "Fabio"?

Wow.

ricpic said...

Guys like Fabio ain't that great in bed.
Ho hum, just another day at the orifice.
Guys on the other hand who get the no go red...
They're hungry hounds when they finally luck into bed.
So gals, forget about the leonine mane.
Go for the mangy cur what's got real pussy on the brain.

Post of the day. Maybe the week.

Revenant said...

Why the heck has Fabio been in the news so much lately? I swear I haven't heard a single thing about the guy since the 80s (or was it early 90s?).

Pogo said...

We are doomed to relive the 1990s, but this time as farce; including Fabio, grunge music, and the stained dress.

Time to haul out those Beanie Babies!

Fabio. He suddenly interests me, this Fabio. I was prepared to dislike his opinion, this Fabio, because he is Italiano, you know, and not just Italiano but fabuloso Italiano, so I was prepared to dislike this fabuloso Italiano, Fabio, and sus opioniones Italiano.

So then comes the surprise! Now I must respect his opinion of women, he has, no doubt, experiences that are numerous, if for a camera at least, would produce such political acumen, no? The worst of all worsts is for them to laugh at us and think of us pussies. Therefore elect Clinton.

Blake said...

Aren't Elvira and Althouse about the same age?

Ron said...

Aren't Elvira and Althouse about the same age?

Yeah...and we've never seen them in a picture together...maybe Althouse is Elvira's Secret Identity!

Clang!Honk!Tweet! said...

Hmmm...Both Elvira and Althouse started out as redheads.
Just how did Althouse get so good on camera?
She looks like a pro.

I know things have gone south in the Elvira business for quite a while.  Somebody that smart is bound to have another gig.

Could it be??

knoxwhirled said...

her nipples on The Button

LOL

Dee said...

Sorry, but Fabio's statement reminds me of the "pussies, dicks, and assholes" monologue from Team America.

Kirk Parker said...

Hey MM, I'm with Gedaliya: am I supposed to know who this person is? If so, why?

(Note to the curious: I watch no, that's literally zero, television, so maybe that explains it.)

former law student said...

Fabio made it big twenty years ago, by posing barechested for the covers of romance novels. He is famous for his long hair and hairless chest. He is part of our common pop culture -- think of him as the male Charo.

Trooper York said...

He also posted several times about his life as Hillary's second husband on various threads futher down the page. We already covered this ground some time ago.
