Althouse sighting at the Wisconsin Capitol protest today.

Did Meade bring me here for a reason?



"Let's go in."

We find the line and question a man who went through it: "Was it worth it?"



"I'll use the Port-a-Potty from now on."

ADDED: Somebody emailed to say they wanted to know what boots I was wearing. Also: "There is a guy in the background saying: you want to meet somebody? Another male voice: ya with your fists? Then a loud audible Shhhhsssssh! which sounds female." Hey, you're right! The things that get picked up on audio.

The sight of Ann being called over by Meade, who backs up the cam, is allegorical; going from the chaos to the order, as signified by the police, towards whom they move.

Isn't it the same thing outside as in? Why are they waiting to get in? Does anyone in Madison have anything to do other than whine for more caviar? You don't get these lines waiting to help the homeless or to donate time to an animal rescue.

The place has turned into Fisherman's Wharf

I note Mrs Meade was moving against the crowd. Very good, Madame.

Also very perspicacious to keep an eye on one's back.

I know your dear bodyguard also had your six, but it never hurts to look yourself.

"Was it worth it?"

If it wasn't, it wasn't that urgent.

If you're at the do, vb, say, "Hi", to Kate and what's-his-name from all the Althouse Hillbillies.

It's not for symbolism. It's to get photos of faces. Photos of backs of heads are boring.

lol, too cute. Just before he calls out, you look like a little girl walking along.

It just struck my sense of whimsy, Madame. I doubt you do much for the symbolic value. You seem to be someone who has a specific purpose in all her actions.

PS Nice legs, if I may be so bold.

The Althouse Hillbillies.

You know, that does have a certain ring! Not quite Nun's Oath Ale, but still quite charming.

I know those boots - I have the same pair (seems the only thing we have in common).

BTW, they're into their third year and the soles are starting to detach.

The original Hillbillies were Northern Irish supporters of William of Orange during the Glorious Revolution. They were also called 'Rednecks' because of their kerchiefs. When they came to America, they brought their inclinations and politics with them. They also did not like the king's revenuers taxing their whiskey. A British officer said the American Revolution was merely an excuse for Presbyterians to shoot at Redcoats. They fomented the whiskey rebellion in the 1790s. I am a Presbyterian.
