... or wear it anywhere to flaunt your devotion to the Althouse blog... or just to annoy/perplex people. Click here to buy.

Not my kind of button.

But a button with a photo of the "bullhorn guy" would let anyone who sees it hear what they want.

It would also be an answer to the smiley face.

You should charge extra to people who make special requests.

ANARCHY NOW!

Irene said...

It's the thing to wear all over Madison.

Maybe we are entering the realm of cult of personality around here?

You know, I expected more, plantwise, from the wife of a horticulturalist.

Hey! Althouse!

Wisconsin made the number one state for this:

Simon said...

Or show your devotion to Judge Posner with a "What am I? A potted plant?" button.

Chip Ahoy said...

I am not a plant! I'm a human bean.

Chip Ahoy said...

I designed a button for you using your own photography.

Well, it's good that Althouse isn't a fake chinese rubber plant.

Although (stretching a lot) it could be argued that she's been in a town full of rubber plans to get rid of itself.

My Dad had one of this badge-a-minut" devices that make professional looking political buttons. I have it now and it still works!

Perhaps Meade would be interested in a complimentary "Don't Tread On Meade" button--sort of a payback/exchange for the shirt he made.

How about Militant Homosexual Republican? You want heads exploding??? KA-B-OOOM!

Oh, that is so genius, so American, Chickelit! I love it. It's like a political Bedazzler!

As I said, one that says, "Neutrality - Cruel and Kind", has to be next.

Almost.

Militant Homosexual Tea Party.

vbspurs said...

Militant Homosexual Tea Party.

Wicked! In the religious and New Englander sense, both.

Maybe Meade can provide his opinion on what would be a good a horticultural speciman to liken to a Walker Plant?

Joaquin said...

Didn't know this was a shopping site.

vbspurs said...

Yes it is, Joaquin. It's also an auction site, a horticultural prize show, a bordello, and a huqqah lounge.

The кнопка button of politics she was invented by Lenin in 1917. Also he invent the Ford Model T, stolen by capitalist pigs. Lenin, man of future!


In Soviet Wisconsyn, Althouse plant YOU!!

We have a few of these Socratea exorrhiza in Madison's botanical gardens' conservatory.

This one ("Don't blame me, I voted for...") is more all-purpose:

Fred4Pres said...

Please do not tell me that there will be an Althouse premium site too. Because that will be too much.

Fred4Pres said...

I hope you did not buy too many of those buttons, because this Walker thing, while significant will have a half life of about a week once it is over (and it appears close to over).

Fred4Pres said...

While Wisconsin is a state with many subtle charms, too much is too much. The Superbowl and now this?

Paddy O said...

Speaking of Wisconsin protests (and because the other threads were just too much needed bits of change to post this there)...

California is cutting billions from its budget. Look what gets cut when public unions own the government.

When public unions have the power, they get the security, while the poor and needy suffer.

Paddy O said...

By the by, a "Meadehouse Garden Shop and Wine Bar" would be a great place to hang out for anyone living in or traveling to Madison.

I will gladly pay you Tuesday, for a Meade button today (please, please, please). Post a pic?

I like the "Don't Tread On Meade" button idea better, too!

I'm traveling to Madison in June! Hope to meet up with some Althousians.

To those that like to quote various 'polls' to support their 'claims', you should be aware of how very manipulative the process of polling can be.

Unconvinced? Here's a simple example that I borrow from our friends at LegalInsurrection:

Issob Morocco said...

Thanks Meade, that is a great specimen!!!

Socratea exorrhiza

A little busy to use as a button background.

fernstalbert said...

Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blogging, humor and pictures. Saw your interview on Fox yesterday. Thanks for the updates and reasoned coverage of the events in Wisconsin this past month. Cheers ps: Meade is a treasure and you are both very brave to confront and engage the unions and the professional protesters.

Carol_Herman said...

CHIP AHOY, that button design is fabulous!

Meade said...

There's also THIS for anyone who wants one.

Good grief.

'The palm is pollinated by beetles, and various organisms consume its seeds or seedlings.'

I don't think Scott Walker is 'pollinated' by beetles...

Garage?

OK, I'm on it! Not today (too little time) but tomorrow?

If only you can get the mindless lefties to wear "I'm a House Plant!" buttons ...
