"But what most of the many folks who visit his sweetie’s blog don’t know is that 'New Media Meade' has expanded his role..."

"...by collecting images at protests she just might not approve of. Undaunted, New Media Meade just cannot help himself, he is drawn to a protest just like the moth to a flame. Here’s one."

Hmmm... Well, I don't approve. So I can't show you that. So I'll show you this:

Somebody's jealous.

Phil 3:14 said...

Well snark IS the currency of the blogosphere.

traditionalguy said...

Yes, there is the sweet smell jealousy in the morning. Meade is the one of the Althouse team that seems determined to get involved. The Professor just mentions a demonstration and Meade is off to the Capitol with his pancake trailing behind him. My congratulations go out to the dynamic duo who find so much fun in life and share it. A blogger is just not supposed to have that much fun, guys.

Fred4Pres said...

Meade is just too edgy!

Maguro said...

LOL. Always good to see an Aunt Esther reference.

Alex said...

Well snark IS the currency of the blogosphere.

So who is going to stop the snark first? I don't see Shiloh/Ritmo laying down their arms. They are the worst scumbags around. They speak in polite tones while insulting you to your very core.

Triangle Man said...

That was pretty funny.

Iconic Meade.

sonicfrog said...

Ann, you should change the blogging Heads pic to the Aunt Esther one, and count the minutes before one of the liberal hot heads comes charging in accusing you of being a racist for posting that.

Marilee said...

Well I went there and I'm sorry I did. What a bunch of hooie. Not familiar with that blog so I don't know if it's their standard fare. Whatev's

Ann Althouse said...

"Ann, you should change the blogging Heads pic to the Aunt Esther one, and count the minutes before one of the liberal hot heads comes charging in accusing you of being a racist for posting that."

Even just linking to that. I had this experience.

madawaskan said...

Gawd- Althouse yet another picture of you and Rob Wright.

Quit spamming the blog!

madawaskan said...

This is almost as bad as-

Sean Penn + Scarlett Johansson.

******

Trooper York said...

Seriously Maddie you have to know that Bob Wright makes Pee Wee Herman look like Charles Bronsen.

AJ Lynch said...

Pretty funny stuff for a Hoosier [I assume "Gerry from Valpo" refers to Valparaiso].

G Joubert said...

A trend I see is your detractors have a tendency to go personal on you. I think it's jealousy too.

Dan from Madison said...

Detractor? It is just satire folks, have a chuckle. Ann and Meade seem to have had one.

madawaskan said...

Trooper

So I just asked this dude-(who when it comes to "culture" doesn't know his ass from his elbow)

Who do you think Sean Penn is dating?

Answer:

Kei$ha?

I'm all like dude, that would actually fit better!

AlphaLiberal said...

Ok, that's funny.

I did too. They need some technical assistance; then the possibilities would be endless!

KenK said...

WTH did you link to this a-hole? I see what's in it for him but not for you.

MadisonMan said...

I so wanted to hear Pee Wee say I know you are but what am I? to althouse!

Lem said...

RIP Carl Dean ;)

deborah said...

Althouse wouldn't have a prayer against Aun' Esther.

shiloh said...

Again AA, when snl satirizes you ~ you'll know you have "arrived" ...

but as Meade would say, don't hold your breath 'til you turn blue! ;)

me and mine,
Made me look, made me stare.

The Crack Emcee said...

ROTFLMAO!

HT said...

Oh my God that was funny. Thank you for posting it. Meade's comments also funny. Good sports. But then someone comments that "Althouse has long been after a gig on Fox..." Boo. (Boo for its predictability.)

ricpic said...

The constant snark is a way of deflecting attention from the wealth of easy clown pickings the kook left offers Meade's camera.

Meade said...

Lem said...
"RIP Carl Dean ;)"

gracias.

Mr. D said...

Very nice. One of my favorite exchanges from back in the day:

Aunt Esther: Fred Sanford, the Wrath of God will strike you down!

Fred Sanford (brandishing baseball bat): And this Louisville Slugger will knock you out!

bagoh20 said...

Always punch up.

Pastafarian said...

MadMan, you're not the only one. I was hoping they had some footage of PeeWee from a few years ago, and they'd put that next to footage of Althouse and make it look like a conversation.

That was really well-done satire, without getting nasty. Funny, funny stuff. I love the expressions on Meade's face as he's photographing those particular subjects.

That's the best Althouse-related satire I've seen since someone satirized a Cedarford post, right down to the structure of the thing, with rows of asterisks like this:

******************

...to separate the sub-topics.

David said...

Some seem to think that this Meade fellow is a kept man. As though this is a bad thing.

They fail to see how cutting edge kept manhood is.

They also think Althouse and Meade are conservatives.

Strange.

Very true, David. What's funny is that kind of attack always comes from the humorless (il)liberals - Mutaman or Jay Retread and others. They're blind to the reveal of the sexism and classism in themselves.

You have to laugh.

NotYourTypicalNewYorker said...

Har-Dee-Har-Har!

Kirstin said...

It reminded me of Lars and the Real Girl.

The Grand Inquisitor said...

LOL. Meade, just looking at you on the videos, it's hard to believe you could even tolerate not having a job.

Are you retired, or somehow employed?

I don't read most of the threads, so sorry if this has come up before. There is no hidden insult or ageist meaning in my question.

You're a damn helpful journalist, if that is what you consider your occupation.

Maguro said...

Did a satirical Gary Rosen appear five minutes later to denounce him as an anti-semite?

Chris said...

This is all good.

Thanks for all the giggles everyone!

Mutaman said...

"What's funny is that kind of attack always comes from the humorless (il)liberals - Mutaman or Jay Retread and others."

Actually I think a teabagger yelling "Keep Your Government Hands Off My Medicare" is hilarious.

Its also pretty funny that as one who pays some taxes in Wisconsin, I pay for Meade's support.

Mutaman said...

"They're blind to the reveal of the sexism and classism in themselves."

"Classism" is the word Meade uses to descibe the philosophy of those of us who think GE ought to pay a few dollars in taxes.

"sexism"? Hey meade , its been many years since I hit on young women on the square. From what I hear, the same can't be said about you.

Be that as it may, I call you out to cite one thing I've ever posted here that could be defined as "sexist".

pbAndj said...

" shiloh/PB&J/some phony folksy + vbspurs."

I'm not sure how that would work, since I (under an earlier name) have already been banned from her tube-world (twice!).

Maguro said...

"Classism" is the word Meade uses to descibe the philosophy of those of us who think GE ought to pay a few dollars in taxes.

As a right-thinking progressive, I'm sure you're all in favor of tax credits and exemptions to promote Potemkin "clean energy" projects like windmills. But when GE predictably takes advantage of these boondoggles to (legally) reduce their tax burden, you're just OUTRAGED, aren't you? LOL.

Roux said...

Bob Wright takes his mask off a reveals his true persona....

Trooper York said...

Its classsism because academic douchenozzles are not used to a blue collar guy like Meade who has a seasonal job. They give no value to people who work with their hands.

And of course he is always hands on with the blogger lady. So to speak.

Mutaman said...

"a seasonal job."- Is that what they're calling it these days? What season is that- the season of summer in Wisconsin: July 10-July 11th?

Mutaman said...

"But when GE predictably takes advantage of these boondoggles to (legally) reduce their tax burden, you're just OUTRAGED, aren't you? LOL."

If you think GE's tax avoidance is due to "clean energy" projects, I've got a bridge to sell you. The next thing you'll be telling me is that at some point GE's tax avoidance will tickle down to you and me.

Maguro said...

"Tax avoidance" is what you and I practice when we sit down with TurboTax to do our 1040s. Do you deliberately pay more taxes than you need to, Mutaman? If not, why would you expect GE to?

The fact that the tax code has so many loopholes and perverse incentives is ultimately Congress's fault, not GE's.

Methadras said...

Damn, Meade is looking a little anemic. More protein Meade.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

I'm not sure how that would work, since I (under an earlier name) have already been banned from her tube-world (twice!).

I guess that that means that you are an unwelcome a-hole no matter what color sock you put on. Hard to hide your true self.

Skippy said...

Have to admire Althouse for linking to that hysterical piece. I wondered, too, how a law professor has so much time on her hands.

Trooper York said...

Gardening is a seasonal job dude. You don't start until the snow stops. I don't know much about it and Meade doesn't need me to defend him. He plants his seeds when the time is right.

If you don't believe me you can ask Mrs. Meade. Just sayn'

Mutaman said...

Meade likes to watch.

Trooper York said...

Who doesn't like to watch. And sometimes it can work out great. If not for you, well than maybe for your grandson!

Aunt Ester and Fred Sanford. Thats S-a-n-f-o-r-d, period.

Sigh. The only truly funny Lear Sitcom. Those were the days.

Fort said...

Certainly Bill Buckley never endured...

Oh fuck.

What a horrible clause.

Fort said...

An Attempt at Explaining...

October 1, 1989-The New York Tiimes

William F. Buckley, Jr., the editor, author, and amateur harpsichord player, will perform with the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra later this month. As the date of his guest appearence approached, he agreed to submit to an interview, by himself, on how he prepared for his orchestral debut.

BUCKLEY: What made you decide to play a concerto with the Phoenix Symphoney Orchestra?

BUCKLEY: That's easy-I was invited. The interesting question is, what made the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra decide to invite me?

BUCKLEY: Well, do you have the answer to that?

?

Fort said...

BUCKLEY:

After my first few months of shock, little hints drifted in on the disorderly beach of my correspondence. Yes, I now know how the idea began. In one of my autobiographical books, I apparently made some reference to the singular pleasures it must give a musician to be able to play, night after night, masterpieces written by great composers, by contast with the fate of the contemporary public speaker who needs to be satisfied with reiterations of his own invention. But that blissful alternative, commented, is available only to the artist, which is what I hoped to be up until the age of fifteen when I was precocious enough to recognize that I didn't have the talent to become one."

Fort said...

Before the Sheen nonsense, I called the writing's of WFB the "winning playbook."

I stand by that assertion, and wish only for my pedestrian observation to resonate amongst voters.

The Grand Inquisitor said...

"I wondered, too, how a law professor has so much time on her hands."

Seriously?

Most law professors alter their last year's lessons only slightly. They aren't that busy until it's time to grade exams.

They have to keep a few hours to talk to students, write the exam, and do enough homework to cover their course (Which they probably already know really well).

That leaves tremendous spare time. *Every* law professor I met who was worth a damn had a second job. Most of them made so much in that second job that their professor work was more like a hobby.

I guess that's the benefit of becoming a law professor, which isn't really all that easy.

Skippy said...

"Most law professors alter their last year's lessons only slightly. They aren't that busy until it's time to grade exams."

Yeah, Grand Inquisitor, I wasn't being serious. I meant: God-almighty, these law professors really ought to be working parttime jobs with lousy benefits and no retirement. Like the rest of the country. And we should treat them with the contempt that this law professor has for the OTHER public employees. They are just lazy, overpaid teachers sucking off the public teat, anyhow. That's what I meant. Sorta.
