Althouse, I laughed out loud at this. I think it's the first time liberal dweeb,Tbog, has ever been truly funny.

Is that your Facebook picture?

traditionalguy said...

I empathise with the Tbog poster who is himself left in outer cyberspace wishing that he too had a heart and a brain. He wishes that Althouse would give him some of hers since she has way more that she needs. But he is trapped in his heart and mind's comatose state listening from afar to the warm comradery at the Althouse salon.Sad.

Bissage said...

That’s pretty much the type of mindless insult I was talking about here.

I guess maybe that sort of stuff is meant for the cheap seats.

PoNyman said...

This took me a while to get (and maybe I still don't get it.) Is he saying that Althouse is in a coma? And if so, how is it possible to take a quote the person in a coma? Is he a mind reader of some sort?

I don't understand the left's priggish attitude towards drinking wine... I mean, really, those sophisticated Europeans they like so much drink a lot of wine. Oh well, I guess "tbogg" is just another puritanical provincial American rube who thinks drinking wine is sinful and dangerous. Maybe that's why those people always seem so sour and unhappy. A life without wine will do that to you.

SteveR said...

It used to be harder to show the world what an idiot you were.

former law student said...

I recognize that attempt at an Internet salon.

Cheers, Professor!

vbspurs said...

LOL.

This was so left-field, so sucker punch-like, so priggish I had to laugh out loud.

Please, the Left are all about license and tolerance, that it speaks TONNES when they seek to ridicularise by judging people about drinking wine, etc.

One wonders what would happen if the marijuana laws are slackened and suddenly, a right-winger admits to smoking it privately.

YOU JUST KNOW THEY WOULD BE LABELED A POTHEAD AND TORN DOWN...for doing something most approve. Because the Left frikkin' live, it literally gives them life, when they can tear down the Right.

Cheers,
Victoria

As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria.

Scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. coli) - bacteria found in feces.

In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.

Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health

Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid,than to drink water and be full of shit.

"As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria."

At last I agree with garage!

As W.C. Fields (may have) once said:

"I never drink water. Fish fuck in water!"

"I never drink water. Fish fuck in water!"

Beautiful. I also think it was W.C. that put steel marbles in the freezer to put in his martinis, instead of ice, which watered his drink down too much...

AllenS said...

Excellent, garage.

Tbog seemed to be saying that he would be in a Twilight Zone if faced with 23 years of conversation with the beautiful and brilliant Ann of the Purple Althouse. He must also be suffering from Sullivan's Psychosis Syndrome that feels unable to connect with the essence of femaleness around him and wants it to just go away.

Work is the curse of the drinking class -- Oscar Wilde.

Read it on a t-shirt this morning at the gym.

It's all in good fun. Although a little bit sad the boxed wine thing is the only joke they've got, it's recycled in every comment section I've read when the subject is Ann A.

Actually, if you think about it, a plastic bladder collapsing as the liquid is drained is an ingenious way to keep wine from oxidizing. Beats all the other methods I can think of, like the wine bars that replace the air at the top of bottles with inert gas each night to preserve the freshness of the wine that remains.

The Right does the same thing with photos. At the M. Malkin site, Hot Air, Ace of Spades, for example, every time they run an item on Pelosi, H. Clinton, Reid, Franken, B. Frank, and I mean EVERY time, they associate the item with the most ridiculous or damaging photo possible they have on file. Most annoying, childish. By comparison, the photo of Ann enjoying a glass of wine and the ridiculous implication that therefore everything that emanates from Ann's site can therefore be dismissed as wine-fuled, is hardly damaging at all. It's amusing. The boxed wine comment is an attempt at being clever from somebody who's got nothing, absolutely nothing at all.

On Saturday I went to a dinner party at a remarkable apartment within a rejuvenated building. You should see this place. There are only six condominiums in the building originally designed for dozens, each address takes 1/2 a floor, coffered ceilings, gigantic canvases, exceedingly dim but nonetheless extravagant lighting, etc. When we sat down for our bowl of bean chili (the only thing the host knows how to make, which containing mostly beans, shows the host knows aught about chili -- they'd be barked right out of Texas) the host said, something something "by golly. That's my Sarah Palin imitation don'tchaknow." Liberals all, the guests at the table laughed. It was cute. And it was harmless and not the slightest bit vicious.

I was typing a spiffy reply, when I suddenly realised my heart is not in it after I ODed on Althouse yesterday.

I'll be back later, after I've cleared out the cobwebs in the 88F sun. :P

Cheers,
Victoria

A brilliant idea! But let me paraphrase some wisdom from Patrick in Auntie Mame - he said she didn’t like olives in her martini, because they take up too much room.

Beaverdam said...

Boobs and wine. Sigh.

For Fathers Day my daughters gave me this set of soapstone cubes that serve the same purpose

"TBogg" is a (presumably) grown man who -- spurred onward by whatever awful strain of mental/emotional ebola it is that relentlessly rots and hollows out such lost, luckless creatures -- has a "thing" for savaging mentally handicapped infants -- craven, contemptible behavior, even for a leftist.

They don’t really care, just like they don’t really care that Rush had a drug problem. It’s just a club to beat their opponents over the head with.

SteveR said...

“'You are drunk Ann Althouse, you are disgustingly drunk. 'Yes, TBogg, I am drunk. But you, TBogg are stupid, and disgustingly so. But, tomorrow morning, I, Ann Althouse will be sober.”

Ann Althouse said...

I'll never understand why holding a glass of wine raises the inference that a person is drunk. The glass is full or almost full, which tends to signify that the holder of the glass has had a few sips. Don't these people ever go out to dinner in non-fast-food restaurants? I'm surprised the criticism is that I'm dissolute ... as opposed to living in an elitist upper-middle-class bubble.

traditionalguy said...

The easy to throw charge of the drunkeness sin is inbred in Baptists. These free thinkers are revealing their childhood family of origin still reminds them of the only Unforgivable Sin over at First Baptist, at least for public slanders. Those raised Episcopal and Prysbyterian would never think this thought. Why should they?

Elliott A said...

@Ann- How is someone to know that is your first glass?

"Are you now or have you ever been Foster Brooks?" ;)

Republican said...

Perhaps this explains why Althouse has given up Twittering.

m00se said...

Shouldn't this post have the "boobs" tag?

If unseen glasses count, then everyone looks drunk.

On Firedrake's site, one of the comments [kama] said:

BTW, trapped helplessly in a country that could not hear me was the way I felt during the Bush years.


We heard kama, we just disagreed with what the libs where saying. I love how the libs assume that if we had only heard them we would have, of course, agreed with them. But, it is much easier to assume that the problem is in the listener, than to ask if the problem is with the message.
