Grande Conservative Blogress Diva.

Once again, I'm nominated for this title. Once again, I won't win. Tell me all the reasons why I shouldn't. I've heard it all before.

We conservatives for the most part like you, but you are not (yet?) a conservative yourself and so cannot win.

Just watch, now that I've predicted this, you will finally win.

Professor, I served with Grande Conservative Blogress Diva, I knew Grande Conservative Blogress Diva, Grande Conservative Blogress Diva was a friend of mine. Professor, you're no Grande Conservative Blogress Diva.

I made all of that up, myself.

I think it has something to do with the second seal being opened or camels going through the eyes needles...

May the best man win.

EDH said...

Obviously, it's because you won't sleep with the judges -- us.

Well, all but one.

Cedarford said...

Reasons you won't that you have likely heard before:

1. You are a centrist.
2. You have an education beyond a 4 year liberal arts degree it took you 7 years to get. To many conservatives, that makes you a very suspicious character..
3. You are not from the South, though many people forget Delaware is culturally a lot more like Virginia or rural Maryland than it is another Vermont.
4. You don't believe in the 6,000 year old Earth, creationism, or having a Down's baby is a prolife blessing given by Jesus...Worrisome stuff to a true deepsouth Conservative who 90 years earlier was an ignorant and proud of it, Wilson Democrat..
5. Many True Believers who still think Dubya was Our Beloved American Churchill, that Jesus and free markets will always deliver cheap abundant oil, a right to dump waste in rivers is a now-trammeled and broken by Gummint right, and global warming doesn't exist because they saw frost in October...Also really disliked McCain as well and they are in contention for Conservative Blogress Diva.
But they didn't vote for a Negro instead of the hated McCain!!
6. You are artsy. You know what conservatives think those people are like.

LarsPorsena said...

7. You attract loons like C4d.

SteveR said...

By his definition, I think you qualify but most people don't read his definition.

@Cedarford

Even though your previous comments are "drippings vis goo", as an honest retort, I don't know of any politically-aware conservatives my age (40) that could be described by any of the facets you mention.

David said...

You are a law professor.

garage mahal said...

Cedar
One of your best, although I think you could have gone with "global warming doesn't exist because it's cold in a Nordic country in December...."

Ricardo said...

Elections always say more about the voters, than about the candidate who wins. Do you really believe that you share very much with the GAR (great American rabble)? Do you want to share very much with them?

former law student said...

Who won last year? We can help deconstruct what it takes to win, to better position the professor to next year.

Will Althouse's newlywed state increase her chances or lower them? Do gays make up the bulk of the voters? Or do all candidates let their readers know of the vote?

She has provided conservatives with more red meat this year, but she'll never be Michelle Malkin.

traditionalguy said...

The use of Purple Colors in your pics has blown your cover. Purple is not pure Red...there is Blue mixed in the Red to make Purple. Ah ha, and you running for Grande Conservative. No are no more than a petite conservative enamored of Bob Dylan and good writing style. P.S. Please do not change a thing.

HelenParr said...

If it were just for 'diva', you'd win hands down.

Joan said...

Grande Conservative Blogress Diva is aiming too low for you, Ann. You don't limit yourself to conservative topics. You're the Supreme Blogress Diva, no group identifiers necessary.

bearbee said...

@Cedarford, nothing beats a hackneyed stereotype.

Zachary Paul Sire said...

Why you'd want any honor from that embarrassing, poorly written, childish, and, most importantly, self-hating Gay Patriot blog is beyond me. It reads like a snotty high school girl's diary where she complains about all the boys who won't date her. Although, what an honor for you to be nominated alongside Michelle Malkin! Jesus.

ContraMan said...

A true Diva is ordained, not elected. She should not seek that which she and her adoring acolytes already know her to be. But Madison Wisconsin, as a seat of her power, does raise doubts as to her Diva legitimacy among some. i.e me.

holdfast said...

Um, because you are not conservative, and you voted for Obama? You write a great blog and have some very interesting commenters, but you are simply not conservative.

edutcher said...

Cedar just filed his petition for Grande Lefty Anti-Semite Blog Commenter Diva.

Lefty Anti-Semite - is that distinction without difference these days?

Matt Eckert said...

Sorry but I voted for the Crack Emcee.

Big Mike said...

dbp and holdfast are perfectly correct. You will not win because you are not particularly conservative. You are only conservative by the standards of Madison, Wisconsin, in general, and the University of Wisconsin in particular.

Now you and Meade go eat your cheese.

Methadras said...

Reasons why you shouldn't win? There is only one. You aren't a conservative.

Penny said...

"Once again, I won't win. Tell me all the reasons why I shouldn't."

Because no one ordered the REALLY big, conservative tent.

Patience, dear. Good things take time.

JohnAnnArbor said...

Didn't SondraK win one time?

Kensington said...

Be grateful you don't qualify. If you were a conservative, your support of President Socialist would be contemptible rather than merely disappointing but unsurprising.

I like this blog, but Grande Conservative Blogress Diva you ain't.

traditionalguy said...

I doubt that a Grande Conservative could recognise a Diva if you put one on a plate and handed it to him. Diva-ness is an attitude of female authority among free thinking people that doesn't attract many conservatives. That is why God created the democrats to give Divas a fair shot.

ContraMan said...

Please, my fellow conservatives, the Divine Ms. A does not require us to judge her, but it is for her to judge us.

'Cause she's got the Latin for the judgin'and we don't.*

*"Beyond The Fringe"

info said...

you are winning the vote so far...but kinda hard to take anybody that seriously that voted for uhbuhma...just saying.

Kensington said...

info:
"you are winning the vote so far..."

Holy God, it's true. Sorry, Professor. I wouldn't usually bother with something like this, but the idea of you winning a conservative diva award is too absurd, however much I enjoy this blog.

I'm going to go vote for someone else right now.

Kensington said...

Oh, wait. I see now what the rules are:

"And recall we here at GayPatriot define a diva as “a strong, confident woman who commands the respect of men.” A conservative blogress diva need not be conservative. All she must do command the respect (or have otherwise earned the admiration) of gay conservatives."

So although Althouse isn't conservative, she's still qualified by their rules. I still wouldn't vote for you because I cannot respect that Obama vote, but I'm also not qualified to vote on the basis of who gay conservatives respect the most. I dunno, so I'll continue to abstain.

However, The Anchoress is my personal favorite, though, and I hope she wins.

"Tell me all the reasons why I shouldn't."

You're not bitchy enough. Work on it.

John Lynch said...

Not conservative enough for that audience. Duh.

JAL said...

Witt -- you ain't seen her do the diavlog thingey much have you?

LutherM said...

"Once again, I won't win. Tell me all the reasons why I shouldn't."
Because, as Browning wrote, "God's in his Heaven - All's right with the world!"

Verification word: thick

lol. Speaks for itself.

Of course he does, how else is he going to seek the validation he so craves.

For once, Paypal Credit card Accepthe felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely at 1200 midnight.
