I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy for Althouse because she hasn't done a single post on those phony teabagging parties. Thank you, Althouse.

ACORN shoots, they score!

blake said...

Gee, "those phony teabagging parties" make me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Revenant said...

I like this conspiracy theory that the protests aren't really real. Especially since so many of my friends and family have been to them. :)

Just when nature is blooming the gummint delivers a body blow to your kishkas. What a compassionate buncha bastids. Tea Party tomorrow. Turn out for it. Make Zero and his henchmen quake.

ricpic said...

Ya gotta admire the pure gall of Zero. Today he said it's all the fault of those big bad bankers for forcing, that's right, forcing, scores of thousands of noble black and hispanic innocents to sign on for mortgages they knew they could never pay back but nevertheless they were tricked! tricked! by the evil white plutocrats to take the loans. And not a word about his marxist thug pals in gummint holding a gun to the bankers heads to make the loans in the first place. All hail the biggest bold face liar of them all - Zero! Zero! Zero!

Cut leaf toothwort is out, in the Central Ohio rain.

About three days late.

I'm glad she's not covering the phony teabagging parties too. Those A New Way Forward guys are seriously lame.

Now if she wanted to comment on the real tea bag parties, I'd certainly enjoy hearing her thoughts.

those phony teabagging parties.Please, no reports on real teabagging either.

People that smoke cigarettes don't deserve medical treatment for various ailments which are often directly related to the cigarette smoking.

Such a person, who also deems to engage in extreme profanity, isn't deserving of any sympathy whatsoever.

Love,
Maxine

If there are peach blossoms there must be peaches. What happens to the peaches. I'm imagining some are eaten fresh, dripping with juice, but what about the others? Pies, chutneys, cobblers?

Meade said...

Love Maxine will be delighted to know that medical treatment was withheld from Humphrey Bogart, Pat Nixon, Lucille Ball, Bette Davis, Paul Henreid, Sammy Davis, Jr., Walt Disney, George Harrison, and Peter Jennings. Why? Because they deserved their respective ailments. The dirty little no good smoking sons of bitches.

Maxine Weiss said...

The Future Husband feels his newfound status gives him the right to obnoxiously preside over the comments section, and to engage with me like never before.

--But that's only one of the reasons why I'm against this marriage.

Love,
Maxine

Is there anything Maxine is for, apart from feathered bangs and Disneyland?

Peter V. Bella said...

I always love the phony anti-war protests, the phony racial protests, the the nonsensical protests for fair trade, the save the- fill in the blank-, and all the rest of the phony issues liberals protest.

I used to really love them when I worked. Kaching!!! Over time!!! Loved those phony protests all the way to the bank.

Penny said...

The good thing about tea is that it is still affordable, unlike cigarettes. No way would a smoker send a cig to Washington these days.

On a brighter note, I think it's tough to beat peaches and cream with a little sugar, Jason.

Jason (the commenter) said...

Penny,

My problem is I used to live in apple country, now I live in orange country, and I completely skipped peach country!

Revenant said...

Ya gotta admire the pure gall of Zero.We would, if we knew who the hell "Zero" was.

MadisonMan said...

Peach Pie is far superior to Apple Pie.

(The less said about Orange Pie the better)

MadisonMan said...

Zero Mostel.

He's baaaack.

In face, if you read ricpic's comments and imagine Max Bialystock saying them, they are far more interesting.

Jason (the commenter) said...

Peach Pie is far superior to Apple Pie.Them's fighting words. But then, you're in Wisconson and you poor people don't even have apples.

TMink said...

I will also be at one of those phony tea parties. I hope I am there with 2,000 of my phony friends.

I will take some phony photos and post them.

Phonies unite!

Trey

Hm... come to think of it, it IS easy to picture ricpic calling me "a fish-faced enemy of the people".

Chip Ahoy said...

Teabag parties. Ha ha ha. That's a good one. I do admire originality and the way an innocent phrase can always be made to sound lewd.

But more interesting to me than distorting language is the amazing stuffing I'm making right now out of drying sourdough bread for two roasters. I just tasted it before it's even cooked and if I say so myself the apples, dried cherries, raisins, pecans and cranberries are spectacular touches. I must now butterfly the birds and place them on a rack over the dressing so the drippings fall into the dressing. Dinner is in an hour and a half, if you would stop by we could share it and make up more funny phrases together and amuse each other with further language perversions.

Greetings to y'all Yankees from the Peach State where the juicy, ripe,fresh peaches come from, along with honey roasted Pecans and Pretty Women. A Happy tax day, and a very good night to all of you guarding the Canadian border for us.

rhhardin said...

I like the way Turbotax fails when it fails.

You just have this form with no way to get to a question that allows you to enter any numbers from it. It's the Orwell escape.

Oh well, call it interest income and forget it. You pay a little more tax but you don't have to deal with the imponderables.

The tax code may be too complex when nationally sold tax software can't deal with it.

rhhardin said...

I used to write actual programs to do my own taxes, as I find it easier to transcribe the directions into code and then enter the numbers than to do the steps with numbers.

The overwhelming benefit is that you can instantly redo it with additional numbers.

That ended a few years ago when the directions themselves became too complicated to follow, and I went to turbotax where programmers are paid to do the unpleasant work of actually understanding it for you.

Now even people paid to do it can't handle it.

MadisonMan said...

Jason, WIsconsin is one of the top 10 Apple-producing states. What we don't have, lamentably, is peaches. Winters are too cold.

Nasty, Brutish & Short said...

So it is a peach tree and not a red bud.

MadisonMan said...

Correction: Wisconsin is #12 in Apple Production.

AST said...

As some one mentioned on Dennis Miller's show this morning, it seems like just yesterday when we were hearing that dissent is a form of patriotism from the left.

Ann Althouse said...

The tree is in southern Ohio, btw.

MadisonMan said...

I hope everyone knew that. Look at all that green in the background! That's not Wisconsin right now. But maybe the next few warms days will make green pop here.

Meade said...

I do like your peaches.

Thus I shall shake your Prunus persica tree.
