Radio alert.

I'll be on the "Week in Review" show with Joy Cardin on Wisconsin Public Radio at 8 AM Central Time t0morrow morning. That's 9 AM ET.

Go here to listen on-line live. You can call in. We'll be talking about whatever news stories of the last week people want to talk about. And you'll be able to listen to the archived show here, later.

The other guest — the "left" to my (supposed) "right" — is former Wisconsin Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager.

Can't you just inform them (nicely, not cruelly) that you are neutral?

Ann Althouse said...

In Madison, that's the right.

"In Madison, that's the right."

haha. If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

It's.....Mrs. Hornblower ! said...

Why on earth are you even listed?

I thought all the really important people in society were "unlisted" .

antiphone said...

In Madison, that's the right.

You voted for Bush. Yours is the constituency of imbeciles.

Seven Machos said...

Public radio is so funny.

We're discussing political action today. Here on the left we have V.I. Lenin. And on the right, Eugene V. Debs.

Catharine said...

If commenters rise to the occasion properly, this thread could be one of the best ever.

Antiphone: She voted for Obama. Hers is the constituency of brilliants.

Joy Cardin's appearance on Saturday Night Live years ago was great.

But I'm not going to listen unless you ask Peg Lautenschlager her opinion about the recent talk about excessive drinking in Wisconsin!!

Do it, do it, do it!!

General Lautenschlager!

Haha, jeez what a name. Makes me think of this.

antiphone said...

She voted for Obama.

Yeah, I know that but it doesn’t take brilliance to vote against Republicans, just common sense. On the other hand, it requires genuine idiocy to vote for a second term of Bush after witnessing his administration in action for four years.

jdeeripper said...

Maybe it's rude but tell Joy she should consider updating her photo.

She looks like one of those archeological reconstructions of a Bronze Age Celtic woman whose remains were found in a bog.

Catharine said...

Oh, dear, it seems, that this thread may not rise to it. One can hope for better luck with the thread attached to the actual appearance come the morn, as opposed to the advert in the "prev-eve".

(Althouse's appearances on the Joy Cardin shows rock.)

Ah, well.

Antiphone: Beware of silly assumptions and silly word substitutions, especially if you want to appear smart. Read more closely. Be more sharp.

Seven Machos said...

Antiphone -- Five thousand dollars says that voters with only a high school diploma and high school dropouts went for Obama by at least 15 points.

Let me know the bank at which you want to escrow the money. Thanks.

antiphone said...

I see what draws people to this blog. It’s that smug sense of superiority that can only be achieved by the truly clueless.

Seven Machos said...

Antiphone -- I take it you don't wish to bet about how imbeciles vote? Why is that?

Seven Machos, lets see if I understand your definition of imbeciles:

voters with only a high school diploma and high school dropouts

Is that how you define imbeciles? I would have to disagree. There are plenty of imbeciles with all kinds of degrees. You’re probably one yourself. No?

Go to the WPR website and search "Iran" and you will find a half dozen shows from Dec. 2007 on a National Intelligence Estimate that claimed Iran had discontinued it's nuke program.

Eleven months later we learn Iran has enough enriched uranium to build a bomb. Not one show on the subject from WPR.

Seven Machos said...

Dude, anyone who would come here and spout your banality has a weak and tender mind.

I get it, though. There could not possibly be a correlation between stupidity and failure to finish high school. Of course. Naturally. Impossible. Why, I bet there are plenty of brilliant high school dropouts in your Dungeons and Dragons league and who work at the same convenience store where you work. Wanted to get that GED and go to college. Just never got around to it.

Seven Machos said...

Now that Obama is president, Iran will no doubt halt its nuclear ambitions. All it takes is a little negotiation. Hey, let's put a minimally-guarded embassy in Tehran, too.

antiphone said...

Well Seven Machos, it sounds like you’re a real super achiever, not much of a man of the people, salt of the earth type though. How many degrees did you have to earn to get that stuck up, do tell.

Seven Machos said...

Right. When you have been beaten like a drum, go for the ad hominem attack.

I am a doctor the law, just like Althouse. And yes, as a matter of fact, dude, I would like fries with that. Thanks? Do you have forties here?

antiphone said...

Well it’s a good thing you haven’t let your academic achievements go to your head. Some people become kind of elitist and condescending once they start breathing that rarified air in those ivory towers.

Seven Machos said...

Too true, dude. Too true. There are even ass clowns out there who call over 50 percent of the country imbeciles.

antiphone said...

With all that law education you bought yourself I don’t suppose there was much time to study basic math, in it sounds like you must have just skipped over high school altogether because to believe 50% of the country voted for Bush you’d have to assume 100% of the country voted. Most of us with the extra time to read a newspaper know that not even 100% of the potential voters in this country actually vote. The percentage of citizens of the US who voted for Bush is closer to 25% than 50%. You might want to consider some night classes in basic math Seven Machos.

Seven Machos said...

You're right, dude. I stand corrected. You merely called more than 50 percent of people who voted imbeciles.

antiphone said...

Yes Seven Machos and thanks for the evidence you’ve presented to support that conclusion.

Seven Machos said...

How original, but if you think there is a logical or rhetorical error you might want to identify it.

“Lautenschlager” produces some real gems.

How about “Ace Lather Lungs?”

And then there’s “Challenge As Rut.”

“Aural Stench Gel.”

“Leaches Lag Turn.”

“Hectares All Gun.”

There are many more where those came from.

For it is truly written: with a name like “Lautenschlager,” when it comes to anagrams, the world is your Rye Sot.

Bissage said...

You know, now seems as good a time as any to issue a global apology for this obnoxious tendency of mine to post a comment only to repost it to fix a typo or something.

But there’s a reasonable explanation.

rsb said...

so what's your point?

Ann Althouse said...

I hope some of you try to call in!

Get ready.

"I hope some of you try to call in!"

I'm still snuffling from a cold, so I'm out... But will be listening.

As Seven said, the guise of neutrality that they throw up by having a moderate and a lefty on the show is particularly thin when all three participants voted for Obama.

AJ Lynch said...

I agree but Antiphone sounds like he is still in junior high.
