The new Miss World is a United Statesian.

Alexandria Mills.

What's her favorite book? "'Guess how much I love you,'my mom used to read it with me." Don't laugh. I'll bet most of the people you know, if they were being honest, would name a children's book as their favorite book.
Tell us a little something about your Country?

The USA is a melting pot for all cultures. My home town is famous for the Kentucky Derby Horse Race.
Yeah, the USA, la la la... let me tell you about Louisville! Louisville, Kentucky:
"... Not London. Not even New York. This is a weird place. You're lucky that mental defective at the motel didn't jerk a pistol out of the cash register and blow a big hole in you.... Just pretend you're visiting a huge outdoor loony bin... If the inmates get out of control we'll soak them down with Mace."
That reminds me. The Rally to Restore Sanity is happening today. Are you there? Are you watching it on C-SPAN? Sanity. Are you up for sanity today? I've got the sanity rally recording on the DVR and I'm going to scroll through it — I say "scroll through" these days, not "fast-forward" — later. Meanwhile, remember when the smart reaction to politics was insanity, back when we read Hunter S. Thompson essays?
A radio news bulletin says the National Guard is massacring students at Kent State and Nixon is still bombing Cambodia. The journalist is driving, ignoring his passenger who is now nearly naked after taking off most of his clothing, which he holds out the window, trying to wind-wash the Mace out of it. His eyes are bright red and his face and chest are soaked with beer he's been using to rinse the awful chemical off his flesh. The front of his woolen trousers is soaked with vomit; his body is racked with fits of coughing and wild chocking sobs. The journalist rams the big car through traffic and into a spot in front of the terminal, then he reaches over to open the door on the passenger's side and shoves the Englishman out, snarling: "Bug off, you worthless [censored]! You twisted pigfucker! [Crazed laughter.] If I weren't sick I'd kick your ass all the way to Bowling Green--you scumsucking foreign geek. Mace is too good for you...We can do without your kind in Kentucky."

Excellent choice!! Hunter Thompson is the perfect motherfucker to put all these pinheaded shitbags into perspective!!!

Fucking shoot Stewart and that idiot Colbert!!! In the nuts!!

Moose said...

Hunter S. Thompson was MY kind of liberal...

Steve Pierson said...

I'm wondering what word had to be censored in that quote. More vile than pigf*cker, apparently.

"I'm wondering what word had to be censored in that quote."

There's a link. You could read the essay.

MnMark said...

I am floored that a white American woman - from the South!!! - won an international contest. I thought those days were long gone...no self-respecting beauty contest chooses anyone but a "woman of color" anymore.

I'm not at the Puerile Majority rally today but Roach Voltaire undoubtedly is. He'll be back tomorrow to assure us that it was lively.

Mary Beth said...

How can you judge the sanity of Louisville during the Derby? The city is full of visitors. The sane ones of us are at home having a party or have left town to avoid the crazies.

Michael said...

Poor Hunter. God, I miss him. It would be so great to see him there in D.C. at this rally, pulling one of his beloved guns out and firing it into the air. Hunter hated pacifist pussies.

Steve Pierson said...

@Ann Althouse. Read the essay - I don't understand the censorship parameters. Just my opinion. I enjoy reading your blog - it is always interesting.

ndspinelli said...

Thompson was an acquired taste. I shared his hatred for Nixon[truly a felon] and love for escaping reality by any means neccesary.

deborah said...

O/T I just turned on the Rally, and Stewart and Colbert are dying out there.

Clyde said...

I'm watching Smugapalooza on TV, just to see how amusing it might be. Mostly not, at least to me. And after the Peace Train/Crazy Train/Love Train contretemps, all of a sudden that Wisconsin train isn't looking so bad.

Alex said...

No she isn't. She's reich-wing tard who enjoys seeing women get their heads stomped on by Glenn Beckian stormtroopers.

Clyde said...

One thing I noticed is that for this rally, the stage is directly in front of the Capitol, as if to say, "You shall not pass!" I don't think that stage is tsunami-proof, though.

Richard Dolan said...

Well, that was quite a ride from today's sweet Ms USA-World, via kiddy-books and through the Sanity Rally, ending up in the crazed '60s of HST. Is that what's on offer at the end of Sanity Road?

It's Candyland for the tangerine flake crowd -- over the gumdrops, by the candy-canes, through the molasses swamp and ending up in Sweet, Sweet Heaven. Jump in, dude. That means you, O-man.

I notice they're avoiding all shots at the rally that could provide crowd size comparisons. The shots are actually quite skilled to maximize the appearance of crowd. They pan backward then abruptly stop to another crowd shot from a different angle. They scan across the crowd then abruptly stop to another crowd shot from another angle, the same one as before. The heads are scanned to appear as if the crowd continues on toward the horizon shot as if bobbing on an ocean. They keep repeating the same scans from the same angles. Anything but a complete overhead shot that shows the thinning boundaries.

The bits I've listened to are actually painful to my ears that force a recoil from screeches. What a load. I can almost feel sympathy if I were not so annoyed.

But. As the camera shows closeups from within the crowd I keep thinking, "Boy, idiots sure are adorable." I'm seeing all these truly gorgeous tender lovelies that I could easily have my way with, and nefarious ideas suddenly blossom in my mind.

Alex, you right wing hack, leave Ann alone.

Loved the rally, Jon Stewart talked from the heart and cut through the crap that both sides proliferate.

Jon, you are my hero.
Sanity reigns

BTW, Goodnight Moon

United Statesian?

Christ, it makes you want to take the PC crowd and fulfill some of Alpha's wet dreams.

PS Fascinating how little the media made of Miss World this year. An American who loves her country.

If she was another Dixie Chick, non-stop coverage.

PPS Disagree with spinelli. Nixon, though being an accessory after the fact, was a bush-leaguer compared to Willie or The Zero. And, unlike the Chap of Quiddick, he never killed anybody.

PPPS Thompson was another drug-addled useless idiot.

The Crack Emcee said...

"The new Miss World is a United Statesian."

The term is American.

Sheesh.

victoria said...

Oh,Chip, I think the crowd are larger than you wing nuts would like to think they are. Do you think that only wacko Glenn Beck can attract crowds, bussed in by the Tea Party. No no, normal people are there now. I would have loved to come to DC to the rally.

Alex said...

Oh come on Vic - you know Ann is a reichwinger.

Fred4Pres said...

I miss Hunter too. I wish he did not have to go.

Fred4Pres said...

Smitty, at the Other McCain, summed up Steward and Colbert well:

Stewart and Colbert are two salmon seeking to spawn, desperately swimming against the current of common sense and public opinion, straining to work their way upstream in the River of Progress, and arriving at its origin, to discover a sewage treatment plant.

Alex said...

No no, normal people are there now.

Ah yes everyone who came to the Restoring Honor Rally was bussed in by Glenn Beck. Evidence?

Alex said...

vic - define "normal people" using something that doesn't indicate libtardness.

Revenant said...

"United Statesian"?

campy said...

A person can get whiplash trying to follow Alex's mood swings.

ricpic said...

Louisville, which is in the semi-south, must always be portrayed as benighted because, like much of the south, it's a place that hasn't completely bent the neck to our homegrown Imams of the liberal persuasion.

That's pretty good.

Clyde said...

And is it just me, or is Miss Venezuela (in the red dress) muy caliente?

sol said...

Everyone should believe in something and these young women all believe in their deodorant .

When I lived in Alexandria, we had to take our wheat to Fairfax County.

rhhardin said...

Where does Miss World rank relative to Miss Universe?

rhhardin said...

There's an old MAD cartoon, Pizza places, "Best Pizza in the City," "Best Pizza in the State," "Best Pizza in the Country," and so forth, ending with "Best Pizza on the Block," which has the huge crowd.

Fred4Pres said...

Ms. Venezuela is a hottie. Venezuela is know for its baseball players, hot women, and crazy leader.

Fred4Pres said...

I am not commenting on the "Peace Train" thread because Cat Stevens is annoying.

Penny said...

That's really funny, rh. Right up until the time that someone decided to make home delivery a game changer.

United Statesians...You gotta love 'em.

Synova said...

There is a USA candidate for Mr. World... a plastic surgeon resident from Miami?

Oh, and he thinks that Hunter Thompson is the best poet ever... or something.

Really.

Too funny if that's a coincidence.

virgil xenophon said...

Louisvillian Bob Edwards (formerly of NPR) once described Louisville as "Neither especially Southern nor especially Mid-Western--but especially neither." And having lived in Louisville 76-94 I can heartily attest to that! LOL!

Your idea showing your thinking sence very and muturity level of the mind thank you. They pan backward then abruptly stop to another crowd shot from a different angle. They scan across the crowd then abruptly stop to another crowd shot from another angle, the same one as before. The heads are scanned to appear as if the crowd continues on toward the horizon shot as if bobbing on an ocean. They keep repeating the same scans from the same angles. Anything but a complete overPhone Sex
