Maybe I'll make everything a poll today.

Okay?
It's Poll Day!
It's Pole Day!
It depends on the quality of the choices, such as "none of the above."
No. Now stop dicking around and get posting.

Blogging's not easy.

Creation takes energy.

MamaM said...

This post first came up as the series of typed links that create the poll...which I took to be an example of the work that went into it. It was impressive to see.

Be creative. We'll follow.

@MamaM That code is produced automatically at the Pollcode website. I just typed in the text and copied the code. The reason it showed up like that was that I should have pasted it in the HTML window and not the "compose" window in Blogger.

Glad you liked it!

It is the effort to use cruel neutrality that is wearing on you. You are not naturally cruel.

Is summer idyllic or is it war?
The skunk is grubbing all over my lawn.
The bandit masked raccoon that devil's spawn
Is brazenly raiding my garden store.
I've trapped the raccoon I've trapped the skunk.
Next comes being bitten or being stunked.
Or both.

I know Ann wants to bury this, but...

It is sad that Ann Althouse yesterday was so quick to hold Andrew "William Zanzinger" Breitbart coat while he took aim with his cane against Shirley "Hattie Carrol" Sherrod.


But, Ann reacted to his deed with a shrug of her shoulders
And swear words and sneering and her tongue it was snarling.

But you who philosophize disgrace and criticize all fears
Take the rag away from your face
Now ain't the time for your tears.

Someone tell Broder that women can dick around too.

Come to think of it, they may have invented it.

Now stop dicking around and get posting.

And those are different activities?

Canada's 13th Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker (PM from 1957 to '63), commented most aptly when, in the midst of an election campaign he was asked what he thought of the polls.

"Polls are for dogs," he said, "and they know best what to do with them."

You know Jake, you should READ what Breitbart wrote. You know, like r-e-a-d.

And you should maybe watch the whole video?

(And has someone discovered what NAACP edited out at minute 21?)

And now Sherrod says Obama isn't black enough?

edutcher said...

Does that make Ann a poll dancer or does she merely have the poll position?

You must remember, Lefties don't care about the truth, Uncle Saul said so.

As to The Zero's lack of color, I think that's the opening of blacks walking away from him. He has been a disaster for black people, especially young ones in need of a job. If you hear no major pushback about this from the usual suspects, watch for his poll numbers to head for the 20s.

I was always of the impression that the etymology of the phrase "dicking around" was related to male mastrubation.

Big Mike said...

@Jake, Sherrod came out of this better than she deserved to, and Ben Jealous, Tom Vilsack, and Barack Obama came out of this with pie on their respective faces. But the sad reality is that they smashed the pies on their own faces by speaking and acting before they had all the facts.

They -- and you -- could learn from Fox News, which reportedly insisted on researching the story and getting Sherrod's side of the story before going with it.

And, by the way, welcome to the Internet. Bloggers post about what they want to post about. If you are offended by what you read, then go read someone else's blog that's more congenial to your biases.

And since you are so obviously a newbie, I should explain that we normally type "by the way" as "BTW." Other frequently-exercised acronyms are "ROFLMAO," which described the response most of have to your silly posts, and "STFU," which describes what somebody like you should do when he brings a single-digit IQ to the comment threads of a law professor's blog.

Only on Pole Day.

Jake, your comments are no more relevant, insightful, or convincing whether you post them under "Jake" (*) or under "phil".

You remain an obnoxious, obsessed little twit that no one takes seriously, regardless of which name or account you're using.

Dicking around on a pole day gives a whole new meaning to the word 'posting'. Go Ann!

Sometimes I wonder if Meade takes over from time to time. This feels like one of those times.
