oooooo...when Ellen calls him 'Daddy'...now that's sexy! If we could only get Maureen Dowd to do the same...

Ron said...

...and the day we get Rosie O'Donnell to call Cheney 'Daddy'...my head will 'esplode!

Ruth Anne Adams said...

That was good-natured and sweet.

Michael said...

What Ruth Anne said.

I was also struck by how much Jenna looks like her mother when she was younger.

Revenant said...

That's very cute.

AJ Lynch said...

Ah daytime TV (which is my idea of my own worst hell: being made to watch daytime TV for eternity).

But enough with daytime TV - Isn't anyone here worried about where LUCY has been?

dax said...

Ron - There's just something about Maureen Dowd that just 'doesn't do it' for me. Maybe it's her Hobbitt feet?
BTW, that was a cute and sincere clip.
God save the AL.

Karen: Hey Poodle.
Jack: Who's your daddy?
Karen: You are.
(Next day)
[Jack is angry with Karen]
Karen: Hi, poodle.
Jack: Mm. How are you?
[to Grace]
Jack: Hi, Grace. Who's your daddy?
Grace: [confused] His name is Martin Adler.
Jack: Oh I thought it was Pedro Martinez.

MAUREEN DOWD
Published: December 5, 2007

...W. loves to act as though psychology is voodoo even though his whole misbegotten foreign policy has been conducted from his gut, by checking the body language of his inner circle and looking into the hearts and souls of dictatorial leaders.

If I were looking at the latest fiasco from a Psych 101 point of view, I’d say it was another daddy issue for W.

Poppy Bush, who was once C.I.A. director, loved the agency and liked to sign notes: “Head Spook.” The C.I.A. headquarters bear his name.

W., by contrast, has voiced contempt for the intelligence community. In 2004, he dismissed a pessimistic National Intelligence Estimate that didn’t match his sunny vision of the Iraq occupation, saying that the analysts were “just guessing as to what the conditions might be like.”

When W.’s history is written, he will be seen as the rebellious teenager crashing the family station wagon into his father’s three most cherished spots — diplomacy, intelligence and the Gulf.

President Bush is good. Hillary Clinton is bad.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Did anyone else share this reaction: a little nervous that Ellen would say something political or mean, and then relief that she didn't?

chuck b. said...

Ellen is good. Rosie is bad.

"President Bush is good. Hillary Clinton is bad."

No doubt the attitude is arch, but the words are true.

MadisonMan said...

Ruth Anne: Yes. But in retrospect, I think Ellen is pretty polite, so maybe I shouldn't have worried.

Revenant said...

Yeah, Ellen doesn't strike me as a person who would get all partisan and mean. She has a very personable persona.

ricpic said...

Yes, Ellen is a nice dyke.

integrity said...

The only problem I have with Ann is that she is an incredibly depressing woman, not girl, woman. To think this site is what a 50+ woman has devolved into is very depressing and sad.

The arch comments like the one above don't really work and should be beneath a woman of her age and education, why bother?

A 50+ female antagonizing people is virtually astounding to witness, this is how you set an example for your children?

Ugh, no wonder the country is a mess.

Ann Althose said...

Shalom gentlemen.

JackDRipper said...

Maxine Weiss is good. The guy pretending to be the chick blog commenter Maxine Weiss is bad.

Pogo said...

"The only problem I have with Ann is..."

Like anyone gives a shit, integrity.
And what sort of name is that, anyway?
Integrity?
What, are you a 19th century schooner? A playboy's ironically-named yacht?
Sheesh.

Ann Althose said...

The fact is that Ann is an impostor. I am the real Ann Althose. I will sue her for impersonating me on the Internets.

nick danger said...

Hahaha, integrity!

YHBT! HAND!

Palladian said...

Though it's easy to miss, notice that the person posting on this thread is using the name "Ann Althose". Nice tactic, designed to sabotage Althouse's name and smear her some more. It would be creepy if it weren't so pathetic.

Henry said...

YHBT! HAND!

I learn something new every day.

Ann Althose said...

Jeebus, Palladian, you really are a fluffer aren't you? You posted the same thing in two different threads.

Jennifer said...

Aw, that was sweet.

Revenant said...

Jeebus, Palladian, you really are a fluffer aren't you?

"Ann Althose" is christopher.

He's the only one to use that particular Simpsonism here in the three months, and he's done so repeatedly. Interestingly enough, if you go back a little farther you note that the previous user of the term was another capitalization-challenged leftie troll: "steve simels".

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Revenant: Maybe it's James Lileks... or someone who reads him and wishes he could write like Lileks.
