Everybody wants to take a photo of a man wheeling the large pile of shit that has a "Hello My Name Is Scott Walker" sign stuck in it.

Michael Moore's post-breakfast contribution to The Cause.

Michael K said...

Cute. The Obama team is working overtime to produce these visuals for us. They might not be as happy with them in 2012.

LawGirl said...

At least the presence of the shit pile will help the protestors blend in with background smell.

chickelit said...

Looks like clear beautiful skis in Madison Wisconsin again.

I'm so glad the sturm and dung is over with.

Trooper York said...

Nice state you got there.

Exactly: I see a big pile of bullshit and I think Obama 2012.

TWM said...

See this is the kind of shit that happens when you allow a state to go so far down the black hole of liberalism

Trooper York said...

No wonder we haven't heard from Jeremy all day.

He must be empty.

Look! A shovel ready project.

The pile of shit that this has created will create fertilizer for the rest of the nation.

Don't worry the President is on top of everything right now, phew!

"I was bullied for my big ears"

chuck said...

Ah, modern art. I guess he is saying Walker is like the Virgin Mary. There's even a transgressive sex theme in there.

The Drill SGT said...

Horse shit, and that's what that pile is (for you city types) is excellent, though a bit smelly, as a sidewalk anti-icing agent :)

TML said...

Some great wit here. I almost LOL'd a few times. OK I COL'd (chuckled out loud) at the Michael Moore defecatory output comment from Kent. Overall, I'm really, really kinda sad that these people are acting this way and that there's such a huge gap between what people (Dems/Libs) say they want in behavior and how they themselves act. It's just head-shakingly amazing. Indeed, I wonder if these images will be fron and center as "Decision 2012" gears up or if we'll be treated to more speculative blather about the Tea Party. -sigh-

Brent said...

This pile is what's left over after Walker had the Democrats for breakfast.

Lem said...

Oh yea.. I see here what NPR's Shiller meant..

Liberals are so much more intelligent...

Scatological.. wow.. how brilliant.

gloogle said...

So, the best they can do is figuratively stamp their feet and call Walker a "poopy-head".

Yep, that's about the level of liberal discourse these days...

Henry said...

Funny. Clever invective is rare.

Jenny said...

Wow, snother demonstration of their intellectual superiority.

Thanks for the laugh.

Um, he really ought to have a sign that says, "Hello My Name Is NPR" because they're now in the crapper.

Garage is in the middle of making his contribution and once that's done his mom will certainly whinny up to the cause.

I think you could use a vowel movement...heh.

Oh gawd- I shit you not-I'm listening to the Assembly on delay right now and a WI Democrat lady is reading a letter from a parent about his kid-

"Jeremy".


She ends the letter reading with-

Oh ya.

There was another Democrat talking about lighting up his garbage barge-some crap like that.

And that if you set it on fire it still smells.

I swear half the Dem legislature might be trolls here.

This is the finest post that I have ever seen on a pile of shit.

You recognize, don't you, that by focusing on, and amplifying, the silliest aspects of the protests at the capitol, you yourself look small and silly.

What a sad point of view you bring to this debate.

I expected more from a law professor at UW.

Pathetic.

Aren't they so loving and kind?

Quayle said...

You recognize, don't you Chris, that the entire thing has been silly - every last protester.

You have no good argument on your side - nothing that you could calmly say to persuade - so you've gone with the fever of the crowd.

It is wrong in a democracy to require people to join a union, and to require them to pay to that union.

It is wrong for unions to be formed against taxpayers and their representatives.

It is wrong for unions to donate to the very politicians that will be negotiating with them.

And what do you say to these?

Nuttin! You got nuttin!

This is what community organizing is all about. Too bad we didn't understand that before the 2008 election, but it's becoming clearer every day now.

Hell I miss complete... sentences.

When is Spring Break for most of these pikers-that should take the steam out of this.

Drew said...

Stay classy, Dems!

Chris said...

You know what stinks to high heaven?

Sneaking around and pushing through a law without notice, so that even the Capitol police are taken by surprise:

"Senate Republicans' intent to hold a vote on a revised version of Walker's budget repair bill caught not only legislators but law enforcement by surprise. Tim Donovan, spokesman for the Department of Administration, which includes the Capitol Police, said he was only given an hour or so notice of the 6 p.m. meeting. He quickly called for reinforcements but said they were not enough to handle the 5,000 to 8,000 demonstrators, some of whom came in through the windows and swarmed through a pair of unlocked doors at the Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard entrance."

Oh, and despite Prof. Althouse's off the cuff remarks (she appears to be in over her head here-- which is happening way too much lately), it looks like it was illegal.

What was the "emergency" this time?

commentor said...

"I just think it's socially irresponsible to dwell on the huge wheeled pile of crap"

- head-tiltin' Chris.

Justin said...

Wheeling in another load of protesters I see. That's about right, 1 guy working, a shit load on the free ride.

Pogo said...

Mr. McGuire: I want to say one word to you. Just one word.
Benjamin: Yes, sir.
Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
Benjamin: Yes, I am.
Mr. McGuire: Pampers.
Benjamin: Just how do you mean that, sir?

commentor said...

My god. Law? What law?

If only the protesters had known about this law they could have protested about it...

Politicians with a majority voting through a law with only a few weeks notice. Diabolical.

madawaskan said...

Chris
Are you reading your own comment?

OK. The Capitol police would need to be notified?

I think that explains your next question-

what was the emergency?

You actually answered yourself you just don't realize it-and you did it backwards.

madawaskan said...

Riddle me this Batman-is the majority party required to notify the Capitol police every time they take a vote?

Is that the usual procedure?

madawaskan said...

*crickets*

TWM said...

As Madawaskan said, if the police had to be notified then there was certainly an emergency. My thinking is that most legislation passed doesn't require a notification so security can prepare for a shit attack.

traditionalguy said...

Wait a minute, a pile of shit is useful for feeding next year's beautiful growth of a newly planted job producing economy freed from the virus of Union Rules stopping commonsense management. This vulgar nut is accidentally pro Walker.

madawaskan said...

Leo Ladenson said...

Sneaking around and pushing through a law without notice, so that even the Capitol police are taken by surprise


It's been my experience that most legislation gets passed without informing the relevant police authorities. I don't think the police were surprised by the legislation but rather by the anti-democratic mob that tried to stop the legislators.

Leo Ladenson said...

TWM beat me to it.

Maguro said...

And let's face it, at this point it's clear that the cops are in league with the protestors so notifying them would have accomplished nothing.

wdnelson93 said...

on another note, there is a facebook page called "Boycott Scott Walker Contributors". This would be a good time to go there and see what businesses could use the support of conservatives.

Oh, and madawaskan too.

george said...

All of this lovely banter aside. I want to know what steps the legislature is prepared to take to protect the students and teachers who did not go along with the protests. There is no way in hell my kid would ever go back to one of these "schools."

Having witnessed the total lack of professionalism, or even simple reasoning skills, of the union members involved in this protest there is no way you can convince me that there will not be reprisals. That is what unions do when they lose.

Also, this can't be over until every teacher that walked off the job is terminated and the doctors who gave out excuses like candy lose their licenses. You can protest all you want but you can't do it on the public dime or by abandoning your charges. You can't rabble rouse in the classroom and agitate for the kids to take your side as I am certain was done.

Precedents are being set. But more importantly people can't get away with committing offenses up to and including fraud simply because they have gamed the system. None of these people are irreplaceable and they certainly shouldn't be above the law.

As I said earlier, I've begun working on a poop pile for 2012, so I can be as dignified as you are, sir. Thank you for broadening my horizons.

Paddy O said...

Chris, I know you likely have been raised to think it's all about you. But it's not.

See, conservative ideas start with the fact that you cannot demand from the rest of us what most suits your particular interests. You can't demand, for instance, that Althouse shape her blog to fit what you wanted out of her blog.

And you cannot expect people to cater to your whims and fancies and biases. If you came to learn about conservative ideas, I suggest that National Review Online is probably a better source for that.

Hereabouts, it's more like a cafe where people just talk about what they want and post what they want.

But I don't think you care about learning about conservative ideas. I think you like to make yourself feel all adult and mature by scolding people, handing out demerits, and such.

But, no one likes a school marm.

Especially one that brings their own definition on what is expected, then demands everyone live up to such rules.

Chris said...

chickelit--

OK, I will. I expect a lot of comments to be pretty silly, and I enjoy a good laugh as much as anyone.

I don't think that belittling the protestors is going to solve what ails Wisconsin, though.

And I believe that what the legislature has done is not going to help much either.

We'll see, right?

Thanks to everyone who made lively remarks.

So what, you expected puppies and birthday cakes to show up in the pictures? This is what is happening in Wisconsin at the moment. If you really cared about learning about conservative ideas, then clearly this isn't the place for you.

Thorley Winston said...

I’m a little surprised that with all of the concerns about public health that there isn’t some statute or ordinance in Wisconsin or Madison that prohibits transporting such a large quantity of unsecured animal waste on a public sidewalk. Or maybe there is and the same “safety” officials who are charged with its enforcement and exempted from the collective bargaining changes are looking the other way.

When Meade and Ann started out covering this awol Dem senator fiasco, it was obvious that they were a bit unsure of what to do (remember Ann's comments that she got drafted into covering this and that she is a pussy (her words, not mine))?

They figured it out as they went and ended up making this enormous contribution to the country in understanding what was really going on.

Congratulations for a job well done and demonstrating that OJT sometimes works out well.

If so, you lucked out by accident, but not necessarily for a locus of strict conservatism. This is an excellent site to learn about a diversity of opinions and values. Not all are "conservative" and not all are "liberal." It's not a cookie cutter kind of place. It's what "makes it" IMO. I've lurked for years, and commented infrequently ... and don't regret it a bit.

I think Drill is right. In addition to the papier mache, a tip off is the symmetry and remarkable consistency of the pile. Any respectable dung shoveler knows that containers for the stuff need sides. This should be a truth in advertising violation.

Please tell me this bozo with the cart-crap isn't a Teacher. Not that I'd expect any Wisconsin teacher to admit to their profession after Iowahawk displayed their utter failure relative to their Texan counterparts.
Whether the failure of Wisconsin Teachers to effectively educate African-Americans is an official Wisconsin policy or a by-product of their overall low standards is a question that should be extensively investigated. Jesse Jackson is already on the scene, so the process should get a jump-start.

Conservatives 4 Better Dental Hygiene said...

Chris, the defensive, Glenn Beckish responses are to be expected. They blame their stereotyping and fascination with negativity on the opposition, you see.

And how fitting, seeing as how just before Beck's recent and most damaging debacle, Bill Maher presciently described the guy as being close to playing with his poop.

These cons here, well, they're still just at the stage where they're fascinated by the poop that others brought on display. But not too far off from where Beck metaphorically went, now. The backslapping, Islamist-style trimphalism they've consistently displayed tells you just how close to the edge they've gotten.

Our nation is currently locked in a death-rattle struggle between two ideologically opposing sides. To that end, they will point out anything which makes the other side look foolhardy or better yet, deranged, to the greater American public. This, in turn, they believe will score massive points with dispassionate neutrals, turning them more towards their side than to the opposition's, and latterly, helping them to win the political day.

Everyone knows the score.

So what's your beef again? You're sore it's your side being shown as immature and hyper-partisan?

Does the content selection here really reflect on the other side (whose position, mind you, still has more and even growing support)? We are, after all, talking about a blog that was obsessed with bathrooms and even featured a "citizen-journalist" nearly catching himself in a Larry Craig moment after banging on an occupied men's room stall.

The difference between this photo and that of a Tea Party rally's photo, is that a steaming pile of manure bearing signage identifying it as being a particular politician is buried in some obscure blog (sorry Ann) who about 30,000 people will get to see.

If it were, oh I dunno, say a steaming pile of manure identifying it as Barack Obama, it would make the front page of every "paper of record" in the known world, with readership numbering in the millions, fingerpointing it as "typical behaviour" of that political group, followed by wailing calls for civility and censure.

That, my friends (pace John McCain) is the difference between the Wisconsin protest coverage, to date, and that accorded to the Tea Party movement.

You would think that a physician as passionate(?) as Pogo would have a better opinion of proper dental hygiene, but apparently he assumes that would be a sore spot for a Brit like his friend Vicky.

Chris, the defensive, Glenn Beckish responses are to be expected. They blame their stereotyping and fascination with negativity on the opposition, you see.

And how fitting, seeing as how just before Beck's recent and most damaging debacle, Bill Maher presciently described the guy as being close to playing with his poop.

These cons here, well, they're still just at the stage where they're fascinated by the poop that others brought on display. But not too far off from where Beck metaphorically went, now. The backslapping, Islamist-style trimphalism they've consistently displayed tells you just how close to the edge they've gotten.


Hey look everyone, the shit on the cart is back here to post.

Geez Methy-Head Baby Rattle (the inspiration for Vicky's phrasing?). Don't you have some terrorist training camp videos to admire?

Yay. Charlie Sheen found a job.

Oh you mean the ones that show Wisconsinite public employee union member gearing up for their next wave of jihad, uh, I mean protests? Yeah, been watching them here all day.

Conservatives 4 Better Dental Hygiene said...

Dude, she never even really disappeared. You just needed to look.

No thanks. If I wanted to find a Tory apologist for royalist politics, I'd just read Buckley. ;-)

Ahhh... confusing free speech with religious compulsion. Methy Baby Head shows his true colors and perhaps ponders whether he will resort to beheading anyone who says anything bad about conservatives.

I've tried to link to a funny-maybe-not-really poo pic in Engrish twice, without it showing up -- boy are my HTML skills rusty. Sorry guys. Here is the linky.

HELLO AJ, BJM, MayBee, and Trooper!!! Missed you LOADS. :)

Cheers,

Pogo said...

What's weird about Ritmo is how very occasionally he will be normal for 2 or 3 posts.

My conclusion:
1) It's a set-up for the inevitable Lucy-pulling-the-football-away.

2) Someone else is posting on his handle.

3) Very occasionally, he is actually normal.

chickelit said...

@vbspurs: Mwah!

I think there are still many commenters around from years past. Even Ron shows up from time to time.

I saw you midnight tweeting some Carnival in Rio. Did it get rained out?

Conservatives 4 Better Dental Hygiene said...

Are you posing as a psychiatrist, Pogo? You know, for someone who gives his IRL e-mail address away in the Blogger profile, you sure like to make a point of advertising your unhealthy obsessions with me.

Do you just make shit up as you go along or do you have to ask the guy who was pulling your cart for permission to come here? I'm sure there is a Titus joke in there somewhere where you pay him a $100 and ask him to eat more cheese for consistency so you can look like the picture in your cart.

Paddy O said...

I knew it! I knew it! I knew we'd be seeing vbspurs again soon.

Something is in the air and it's brought some really good folks back around again.

Welcome, Victoria.

Is there an alternative universe in which this sentence would make sense?

Anyway, sorry for raining on the poop parade. You guys are way too crazy for me today and more interesting plans beckon. But it was fun while it lasted. Toodles! ;-0 (Or, in honor of vbspurs' return, should I say "Cheerio") ;-0

chickelit said...

@Pogo:
I thought Trooper York's blog did a good job at partially soothing the savage beast within Ritmo. I mean look how he tamed HDHouse.

Singletons or pairs of Althouse commenters with special enmity or anger issues should be compelled to go there for rehab.

vbspurs said...

I think there are still many commenters around from years past. Even Ron shows up from time to time.

Ron I've always seen here, whenever I lurked in times past. It was the sight of our Simon that startled me, and that of knockout Darcy.

And I'm very glad.

I saw you midnight tweeting some Carnival in Rio. Did it get rained out?

It POURED, and the "arquibancadas" got direct lightning strikes -- but Thor the god of Lightning is no match for the ebullience of the Carioca crowd at carnival.

BTW, my fave samba school, Beija-Flor, won it again this year. Yay. :)

Conservatives 4 Better Dental Hygiene said...

Lol. Blog rehab.

Trooper's a good guy. He also has a fertile mind. The combination is irresistible to those addicted to shooting down (up?) bad comments as if they were internet crack.

chickelit said...

@vbspurs I think Ron qualifies as a "legacy commenter".

I wonder who would get the prize for longest continuous recognizable commentary on the Althouse blog?

Poor boy. You don't even realize how badly you are losing. And you are losing really, really badly. Silly Klucker.

vbspurs said...

Hey Paddy!! It's REALLY great to see you!

I saw DrillSgt on another thread, plus Lem, and Freeman, and well, it really is like coming home. :)

I'm off for dinner, and to take a break from the mini-threadjack due to my return.

This is really a great thread. Kent's Michael Moore crack had me in stitches.

Conservatives 4 Better Dental Hygiene said...

Lol. I must lack access to those extra special magical poll results that your fantasy website fed you. ;-)

chickelit said...

Imagine if Charlie Sheen commented there. Could Trooper bust his balls?

Ann Althouse said...

"I wonder who would get the prize for longest continuous recognizable commentary on the Althouse blog?"

Palladian.

(And Meade.)

Conservatives 4 Better Dental Hygiene said...

Are you kidding? Trooper would look at Sheen as comic gold. At least, that's my take on it.

Well, they've gone from annoying to immaturity in amazing speed.

Nobody commented on my first poop joke. Thouse was not a typo. or has that been done before...

So -- was the paper mache pile of poop constructed by union labor? If so we could and should find a union label!

I thought I heard a bugle in the background.

Welcome back, vb.

Pogo said...

@chickelit
Absolutely; one of Troop's admirable qualities. I myself have the bad Irish habit of pissing people off.

At least, I like to blame those damned celtic ancestors. Sure beats self-blame.

BJM said...

@chickelit

A shirtless Meade could till it into the grounds surrounding stately Meadehouse Manor. Althouse could video him and post it, causing her female audience to swoon.

Is it hot in here? *fanning self*

Methadras said...

Oh, I thought that was C4.

You can't bust what he doesn't have.

vbspurs said...

Thanks, edutcher!!

Ann clarified who the oldest, continuous poster is here:

Palladian.

(And Meade.)


You frankly only stood a chance with one of them. Nice going. ;)

Trooper York said...

Thanks for the kind words. But the reason it is diferent is we tend to cut each other more of a break. And I don't really do politics. So we can talk about things we agree on:

Hot chicks and sandwiches.

Trooper York said...

I will mention that it is a pity that this blog has abandoned American Idol which the reason I first began to comment here.

Too much politics can turn you into a pile of shit....or something.

Johnny said...

I am 100% sure this idea came straight from Obama! It's probably in his little community organizer book he keeps under his pillow. When all else fails wheel in the shit!

My God, it's old home week here at House of Alt! Bonus!

Chris: I came to this website to learn more about conservative views.

Bullshit. You came here angry that Althouse has caught the Union Brat antics on video. And you actually thought an appeal to conformity ("you, a law professor") would get her to lighten her coverage.

You're transparent. And stupid. Go fuck yourself, Libtard.

You know how I found this blog? Boobs and not the leftards here either. It was Ann's anger at the boob girl posing with Clinton. Her ire was fascinating to watch because it, from my point of view at that time, came out of nowhere. Then once I landed at this blog, I thought I'd hang out and say hello. Still saying hello.

Palladian said...

I came to this blog via Reynolds during one of the first vortices, the Great Open Sores / Pajamas Media War of 2005.

To be fair, I think a few people who still comment today preceded me, such as chuck b, XWL, and of course the oldest commenter ever, vbspurs.

But of course I'm still the best!

Palladian said...

"On Blogger Since July 2001"

Wow, I was on Blogger when it was almost unique among blogging platforms and still owned by its founding company, Pyra.

The sad part is that almost NOTHING about it has changed since then. Once Google acquires something it tends to squeeze it under its fat ass and forget about it. It's almost laughable how antiquated and unmaintained Blogger is today and yet it's still operational, like someone using a Nash Rambler as a daily commuter car.

chickelit said...

I still have electronic copies of a brief email exchange I had with Althouse in the fall of 2004 (I'm sure she has no recollection). Like you, I found Althouse through InstaPundit. I must have read her then but I didn't start commenting until 2006 or so. And then not regularly until a couple years later.

Paddy O said...

"Like you, I found Althouse through InstaPundit."

Same with me. Also in Fall 2004, I think. I was really into that election and found all sorts of places to read more and more. I think I took a break from blog reading after the election, but I have no memory of how long.

I'm also not at all sure when I started commenting regularly. I tried to look in old posts, but it seems like there aren't any comments from early 2005 or all of 2004 left posted. Not sure what happened to them all. Did Althouse have a comment blackout for a while?
