"Chad Lee denounces Tammy Baldwin's bouncing breasts" — Dean Robbins lies/jokes bizarrely in Isthmus.

He's commenting on this ad by the GOP candidate in Wisconsin's 2nd Congressional District:



Dean attempts a quip: "I'm almost certain Lee wants us to see him as the preferable choice here. Did he not realize that he's made dancing with Tammy Baldwin look much more fun than strolling with him?"

Does Dean not realize that we don't want our representatives to be having fun, especially not when things are so bad?

Tammy definitely needs support . . . in more ways that one.

Quayle said...

Bouncing breasts in times of trouble - while they may not impede our rejuvenation, any red angel female horn players will surely be the end of us all.

edutcher said...

I take it The Isthmus is either the campus newspaper or the local alternative.

The message is about partying while the country goes to Hell.

Nero, Rome, Fiddle.

I think the kid needs a history lesson.

BJM said...

Huh? How does Dean objectifying Baldwin in demeaning terms harm Lee? Why do Liberal women tolerate this crap?

Ann Althouse said...

Isthmus is the local alternative newspaper. Free. Not a student newspaper. It's been around for decades. It's the same newspaper that did a cover story on me, bizarrely going on and on about my supposed egotism based on my *declining* to be interviewed. It's very politically slanted to the left, which suits this city, of course, where Lee doesn't seem to have a change. But who knows? Now, there would be a big upset.

On Hugh Hefner's day, a playmate Congresswoman deserves a pass.I suspect that this was only doing a normal Pelosi lead Democrat victory dance the day they passed Tarp and all became instantly wealthy through pork projects. A trillion dollars is nothing to sniff at...let them celebrate... until Black Tuesday.

David said...

Ok, but the guy is named "Chad."

But she's "Tammy."

He lacks gravitas.

She lacks both a good bra and common sense.

Partaaay wit' da tax monaaay!

She won her last four races:
69%-31%
63-37
63-37
66-34

Does Lee really think bouncing breasts are going to deter these voters?

EDH said...

The transvestite trumpet player made me think there might be an additional subtext to the contrast provided by the cut-away of Lee "strolling" as one man and one woman.

Indeed, the video is from a "Wisconsin Capitol Pride Rally."

Kurt said...

What? You opted not to include the infamous "breasts" tag for hit post?

Kurt said...

me and my typos... i'm getting used to a new keyboard. i meant to write "this post" not "hit post."

Seven Machos said...

I did not view this video. Please tell me there is a trampoline involved, though. That might get me to click.

Fred4Pres said...

Mrs. Lee (off in the distance at the end) looks cute, but she would never act like a shameless hussey like Tammy Baldwin.

Fred4Pres said...

7 Machos, you asked, I deliver.

Seven Machos said...

Thank you, Fred!

Emil said...

I'm all for bouncing breasts - but for some reason Tammy's leave me cold. I dunno.

Anthony said...

With Althouse, it always comes back to breasts, doesn't it?

In any event, I think it was a cheap shot. Where was she having a ball? I have seen pictures from WWII and the Depression of my parents and grandparents having fun. Live goes on.

Methadras said...

Is Chad Lee a republican or a conservative?

Clyde said...

I have the same reaction to this one that I had to the goofy-ass MoveOn.org Back From the Future ad: "Nice tits."

For some, they may be her best features; for others, two of her only three redeeming qualities.

Dan from Madison said...

That is a crap ad, and the Lee campaign could have used a better clip than the bouncy breast one. That ad even stinks outside of the breast clip. There is PLENTY to campaign against when it comes to Baldwin, plenty of specific things he could have brought up. Alas, boilerplate garbage instead.

If the guy gets 40% of the vote it will be a major victory for him. Too bad Sharpless lost by that razor thin margin back in the day. Since then the Republican candidates for that spot have been totally lame.

EnigmatiCore said...

Meaty beaty big and bouncy

Bob Ellison said...

@Quayle, your post started off great, but then you went in a different direction.

Bouncing breasts in times of trouble--
That's just wrong, says Mr. Lee
Chad, hear these words of wisdom:
Let it be.


[word verification: lograp-- so close!]

ndspinelli said...

"I'm Chad Lee, and I'm not gay."

Baldwin would be a joke anywhere but Madison, here she's in Congress.

Calypso Facto said...

Tammy has the lesbian lock on Madison, the most estrogenized city in Wisconsin. A Progressive's Huey Long, she too would either have to be found in bed with a dead girl or live boy to not be re-elected...

MadisonMan said...

Too bad Sharpless lost by that razor thin margin back in the day. Since then the Republican candidates for that spot have been totally lame.

I'm not sure Sharpless would have been a good Representative, but yes it does seem the Republican Party will frequently scrape the very bottom of the barrel to find the anti-Tammy candidate.

The ad is very uninspiring. Watch it with the sound off -- it could be for any non-incumbent.

roesch-voltaire said...

Clearly this woman gone wild needs to be taken down and put under the thumb of this conservative. Seems to be a trend?

Fred4Pres said...

So how is this race going? RCP does not seem to be tracking it.

MadisonMan said...

I'm sure the incumbent will win. Alas.

Someday, some building in Madison will be named after her, just like the Kastenmeier Federal Office building downtown.

DADvocate said...

Tammy doesn't look like someone I'd want to dance with, or she with me. Her triceps on her arms flop quite nicely too.

Loooove the sunglasses. Not.

former law student said...

Does Dean not realize that we don't want our representatives to be having fun,

We don't want them to be having fun on some lobbyist's yacht -- we don't want them to be having fun in Davos or Gstaad. But Tammy was apparently having fun in Wisconsin -- the same sort of harmless cost-free fun that walking hand in hand with your spouse constitutes.

"Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries," lyrics by Lew Brown, music by Ray Henderson (1931)

Life is just a bowl of cherries.
Don't take it serious; it's too mysterious.
You work, you save, you worry so,
But you can't take your dough when you go, go, go.

I was curious about Chad Lee -- his business depends on well-off people who disdain cleaning their own houses. Plus he's a former "Christian" rock musician, as if a label could sanitize the devil's music.

TheGiantPeach said...

Earnest telegenic young male vs. annoying liberal woman in an election the Democrats cannot possibly lose. Reminds me a little of Scott Brown.

There was an upset in the 2nd District in 1990, when Scott Klug defeated Kantenmeier (who is still alive, and not as old as I thought he would be (he's 86), as I just discovered when I went to check the year of that election.)

This Chad Lee guy seems a little stiff to be Scott Brown (or Scott Klug) material, though.

froggyprager said...

I would rather have Tammy dancing like this than hike the Appalachian Trail or tap feet in a airport bathroom.

former law student said...

I didn't get it at first, despite the comments -- the real message is that Tammy is a lesbian (shaking her maracas at a gay pride rally) while Chad is heterosexual (chastely strolling with his opposite-sex mate).

DADvocate said...

hike the Appalachian Trail

Try it some time. You meet some really hot Latino chicks.

Titus said...

I don't care for this ad.

Shorter version, Baldwin is a big dyke that doesn't wear a bra and lets her tits fly every which way and pals around with drag queens.

Chad Lee on the other hand is very straight and even has a significant other from the opposite sex.

Titus said...

No dancing during bad economic times.

Tammy should be required to wear a burka-I bet the dyke wouldn't like it much.

She should also be strolling along a beautiful river with a member of the opposite sex after instathings doctor wife cures her.

Titus said...

Just saw the ad on tele 5 minutes ago.

It has been revised.

We still see Tammy's tits but "Chad" is no longer walking with the fish in the end-only Chad.

MadisonSteve said...

This ad is exactly why I am NOT voting for Chad Lee; Cheap shot visuals and a pathetic message. Who knows when the clip of Tammy was taken? Are bouncing breasts supposed to stir up Chad’s base? Bad times mean no dancing? Has Chad's supposedly wholesome girlfriend danced in the last two years? All image, no substance, and a message that should be insulting to anyone with above average intelligence. If this GOP cliché would have run on his qualifications, nobody would know his name, so he runs a cheap shot ad and now I am paying attention, and voting for Tammy Baldwin.
