Maybe she should have taken that black Lab over to the Capitol. It damn should couldn't do a worse job protecting the Capitol than the Wisconsin police have.

PETER V. BELLA said...

O/T. Our incompetent and inept governor just signed the Internet sales tax law. Affiliates will be forced to charge sales tax. Amazon sent an email to all Illinois Affiliates canceling their accounts.

I suppose the libturds will be applauding this move.

Leo Ladenson said...

It's just a poor dumb animal. It should stay out of politics.

And the dog too.

mesquito said...

Dear Wisconsin teachers:

I pay 100 percent of my health insurance premiums. Somehow, I'm still alive.

Carol_Herman said...

It's a nice dog.

The kids however are probably gone on spring break.

As Jesse Jackson threatens to "escalate" among a bunch of white folk, doesn't seem to be quite the stuff of racial tensions.

Weren't the crowds once larger?

(You know all Governor Walker has to do is make it illegal to park in front of the Rotunda. And, hire a few meter maids.

edutcher said...

Nothing says grass roots like those homemade signs.

PS Sherlock could take that mutt.

Lincolntf said...

She has a black dog, but has she ever had a black student?

wadeaminute said...

Finally, there is a protester-of-color in Madison. Cute pup.

Pogo said...

When we are all socialists, I will take that dog. Common property.

Same here.

won't someone think of the puppies!!!

Poor black beautiful innocent dog,
Better by far than your master,
A shaming light in the human fog --
Unrequited love for the bastard.

ricpic said...

Shite. Unconditional not unrequited.

This is the best ad for AFSCME I've ever seen.

Well, it's the only one I've seen, and a parody at that. But whatever.

It's also technically NSFW for all you good, hard workers out there. Well worth the view, either way.

george said...

That dog is obviously an impostor. If it were a real union dog it would be at home peeing on the couch, chewing the furniture and demanding the other dogs in the neighborhood bring it their milk bones.

vbspurs said...

Mighty fine dog, mighty fine. You have some good kennels up there in Wisconsin.

Cheers,
Victoria

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

"dog" seems somewhat harsh. Although I will admit she is a tad overweight.

Methadras said...

Poor dog doesn't even know that he is the tool of a leftard.

vbspurs said...

You know how when you take kids to a political rally, you wish to impart something about yourself and likeminded folks there?

- Respectable
- Upstanding
- Responsible for others

What do people who take their dogs to a protest, wish to impart about themselves?

lucid said...

Why are the police and firemen exempt from losing collective bargaining and from paying more for their health care and pensions under Walker's plan?

vbspurs said...

That hooker with her leg up against the wall, enticing johns, has seen better days.

Lem said...

Victoria dear..

Nice to see you.. I've missed you so much.

You are just in time for the celebration ;)

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

That hooker with her leg up against the wall, enticing johns, has seen better days.

She sure is looking a litte dog-eared.

Welcome back Victoria! Good to see you hanging around.

vbspurs said...

OT: Get your fresh red hot death threats!

Especially like the last twit's tweet.

Michael K said...

I loved that TV ad. I could see it being put to good use.

MadisonMan said...

Same here.

Evidence?

I have to say I am completely upset. They sent home Ashton. Seriously, ASHTON is the first to go home? Not that drip Haley with the Feather Earrings and that dreadful dreadful top? Or what's-her-name Spanish SInger Lady with the Constipated Look? But Ashton? ASHTON? I think it's a good thing for Toilet Cleaner Lady -- the first one to hug Ashton, too, at the end, which is a good sign. Ashton's voters will go to Naima (?)

It was really interesting that the bottom three were all women. Why does America hate women?

vbspurs said...

Thanks so much, Lem and Bushman!! Mwah!

Not OT at all, mum, and it looks like the tweet, twit, twat, or all of them have been excised.

PETER V. BELLA said...

"What do people who take their dogs to a protest, wish to impart about themselves?"

When dogs take their people to protests it is a form of training them to associate with other people. People are only taken to protests by their dogs when they are properly paper trained.

Some places even have people parks, where dogs can take their people to romp and play with other people. But, the dogs must clean up after their people.

MadisonMan said...

That black dog is very handsome. Those eyes are fabulous.

What do people who take their dogs to a protest, wish to impart about themselves?

That they're too lazy to housetrain their dog.

I would not take my dog to a protest. My poor dog would be a little alarmed and intimidated by all the people, and he's so darn cute that people want to pet him and that kinda freaks him out too. Rescued dogs have issues but they're very loving to their owners.

vbspurs said...

Not OT at all, mum, and it looks like the tweet, twit, twat, or all of them have been excised.

No way, you're right, edutcher!

My God, it's getting to the point online that you have to SCREENCAP EVERYTHING immediately, before it falls into the memory hole...

Anyway, one Michael Stewart wished death to Scott Walker, and me. And you. How civil.

Chip Ahoy said...

Hello, Victoria. Good to see you.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

My neighbor has a black lab named Fred. He is the most chilled out dog I've ever seen. The only time he gets worked up is when he sees a snow blower. He loves catching the discharged snow in his mouth.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

MadisonMan, put down the AI and slowly back away. I barely made it through the opening number tonight. I think the singers are better this year but the personalities just aren't very compelling. And you know the judging is out of control when Randy has to play the bad guy.

Coketown said...

Considering it's the woman holding the sign, "Protest Dog of the Day" seems a little retrogressive.

Lem said...

C-SPAN is airing the Wisconsin General Ass. Speakers speeches b4 the vote earlier today.

Pogo said...

Vic, the death threat tweets were just moved.

MadisonMan said...

That opening was dreadful -- but almost in a so bad it's good way. I was trying to tell if Scotty was actually singing during the Michael Jackson medley. I'm still not sure.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

lol. I was thinking the same thing about Scotty. I was just waiting for him to tear into some Michael Jackson. At least that would have been interesting.

MayBee said...

MadMan- oh, please issue spoiler alerts before you blurt!
Thanks,

deborah said...

The woman with the dog looks so pleased that Meade took the time to notice her dog.

I hope she doesn't read the comments, but being in Madison, she might.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

When we are all socialists, I will take that dog.

I miss the old CCCP style Pogo. What ever happened to that dude?

Shawn Levasseur said...

For all the bad jokes, this photo probably represents a lighter moment. Meade and this woman probably were quite friendly and had a nice moment talking about the dog.

At least I'd like to think so.

Heck even the sign the protester is carrying is realatively civil, with the implied threat of taking the fight to the ballot box (which is a proper way to go about complaints about governance, not "storming the castle" or capitol as it were.)

Emil Blatz said...

I'm not sure where this was taken, but if it was a block off the square, this dog could be the hound of the Baskerville.

somefeller said...

Fat bitch is a commie and would not deign to read anything other than Daily Worker or the Awl or some other leftist shit.

Well, not everyone can be a literary polymath like you, Sixty Grit.

Paddy O said...

Dogs make everything more fun and good-natured.

Well, except police chases. If you're the criminal.

But everything else is made more fun and good natured by having a dog around.

Nor a com-simp like you, somedouchefeller.

And such a rapier-like wit as well!

But keep on bringing your best attempts at snark, you douche. You lost this fight and will continue to lose. This country is not made up of socialists and we will make that clear from now on.

Funny, I don't recall posting comments supporting the Wisconsin teachers unions on this weblog, nor comments in favor of socialism. Probably because I don't support either. So that isn't my fight to lose. And baby, this isn't my best attempt at snark, believe me.

MadisonMan said...

MayBee -- I'm sorry! Ack! I wasn't thinking of the West Coast (obviously) when I wrote that. Mucho apologies.

Steven Tyler looked positively skeletal and grim at the end of the show. Frightening! I think one week he should come out in a bald skull cap -- totally real looking -- just for a change of pace.

Chip Ahoy said...

Once I smashed my fingers by stomping them with my own boot.

How can that happen, you ask?

By doing what that woman in the background is doing except my hands were spread against the wall behind me. When I lifted up my boot behind me it went STOMP right on my fingers between boot and brick, and I was all, "Frick dish! That was stupid."

I hadn't realized you were gone. Welcome back. What happened?

Anga2010 said...

Protest is over. YAY! Now... how about Russell getting kicked off the island?
Now that you don't have to do the crazy news stuff, mebee we can get back to regular viewing?

blake said...

Hey, I don't even HAVE insurance and I'm still alive, too.

Poor, but alive.

blake said...

Hey, vbspurs!

I don't see the threat tweet against you in that link!

(I'm embarrassed I haven't been threatened yet.)

Victoria, I wasn't a commentor when you were here before, but I read your blog and always looked forward to your comments here. I was thinking about you a couple of weeks ago. I'm so glad to see you back!

Julius said...

Freaky-eyed black Protest Dog is clearly a Muslim Dog... that Mohammad Atta look (but in dog) gives it away. Check the terrorist's Wikipedia page to see it for yourself.

Call Peter King! Muslim Protest Dog is on the loose. He might defecate in your landmark building. Plus fat lady owner is obviously oblivious to Protest Dog's religiofascist tendencies... but owner is clearly libtard and things like this always slip by the libtards.

madAsHell said...

Wait just one minute!!

Did she put a ring in that dog's nose??

Soooo....it wasn't enough to pierce your labia. You had to pierce the dog's nose as well.

madAsHell said...

Never mind.....

dick said...

Ditto on welcoming VBSPURS back. She was one of my favorite posters a couple of years ago. Hope all is going well with her.

chickelit said...

I don't think so..but LOL anyways.

chickelit said...

I remember that too.That dude spoke so russianly so well- things like:

"So, comrade Queen of Dust Bunnies, what is that you are thinking...?"


wv = prova
LOL! I just needed a "d"!

vbspurs said...

Did you guys check out Memeorandum's link on Eva Braun in blackface? I swear to God -- check it out. Hitler married Al Jolson!

Thanks for the continued welcome, everyone. I will reply shortly. It's just that I'm away from my desktop and on the iPad. And YES, I am pumped for tomorrow's iPad 2 debut. Woot!

Wv: clavist ...there's an app for that.

Looks like Snoop, from the Wire, was arrested in a heroin/marijuana sting--you guessed it--in Baltimore

TrooperYork will love this tidbit.

Miss Victoria--classiest lady on the internet--welcome back ma'am

hope all is well, you got your self protection device (aka pistol) and are now proficient in its use--regqrds to your mom as well

chickelit said...

Miss Victoria--classiest lady on the internet--welcome back ma'am

I second that, Roger

chickelit said...

Though I must add that I'm conflicted.

Palladian said...

"Looks like Snoop, from the Wire, was arrested in a heroin/marijuana sting--you guessed it--in Baltimore"

You can read David Simon's bien pensant liberal non-sequitur, released in conjunction with her arrest, here. Note the resurrection of the "two Americas" blather from the now-laughable Edwards campaign.

Lovely this post and nice look

Walker's wife might be pleased, if she is into that kind of kink.

lemondog said...

Beautiful well cared for dog. That says good things about the owner.

Just viewed this newly posted video of a dog trainer actually saving the life of a dog that collapsed and stopped breathing, while attending an obedience lesson last weekend.

Dog was later taken to a vet and diagnosed with a heart problem.

There should be a protest dog of the day every day.

O/T -- the sun is streaming in the windows here. Boy do I need to clean my windows! Spring Cleaning weather is just around the corner.

lol. If I remember correctly, he once addressed me as "Kholrabi, man of the bush."

Hey, vbspurs!

I don't see the threat tweet against you in that link!


Vbspurs even gave you the guy's name, Blake. It's the last tweet on the page, before the update with the letter. The one that refers to "all of the Republicans who share their values".

Trooper York said...

It was no surprise that Ashton went because she screwed up. If you are going to sing Diana Ross you have to go full concert in Central Park wolfpack wilding style singing "Evergreen" or something like that.

You can't half way it in the early rounds.

Plus she doesn't have a natural voting bloc. Neither does Haley or the constipated puerto rican chick.

They are out next.

Ken said...

Isn't it sad when just holding a sign proves that your dog id smarter than you are?
