It is great to see that Ann's dream to be a part of the third tier of the rightwing hate machine come true! Ann, you must be so proud.

Lincolntf said...

Got it streaming. Nice. Haven't heard Althouse yet.

vbspurs said...

Wow, I'm glad I checked back! Was about to post an OT breaking news bulletin, about a second Japanese reactor failing. Gulp.

Good luck, will be listening.

Cheers,
Victoria

Ann Althouse said...

Still waiting to go on.

Palladian said...

Jay, dude, she's just not into you. Move on, buddy!

And she's a pretty hate machine.

vbspurs said...

Still waiting to go on.

Ask Andrew about Orson Bean.

vbspurs said...

*waves to Palladian*

Jay Retread said...

Yes Palladian, she does have that Andy Warhol in drag look working for her.

vbspurs said...

Living in a right-to-work State, I confess, a lot of the argumentation flies right by me, because Florida is an anti-union paradise. Plus, we have an amendment for balanced budgets.

Hello Victoria!

Palladian said...

"Yes Palladian, she does have that Andy Warhol in drag look working for her."

Keep tellin' yourself that, buddy, if it makes you feel better. Man, we've all gotten our hearts broken by falling for someone way out of our league. It'll get better, man, I promise. You'll get back up on that saddle again one day, L.E.

Hopefully Ann will address the fact that the Fond du Lac police, instead of doing their job of protecting and defending, the police are advising Republican Congressmen to NOT participate in the St. Patrick's Day Parade.

That should tell you one of two things: either the Fond du Lac police are aware of reasonable threats made by unionists to the Republicans that should be make public (including arrests of those making the threats) or the police are unwilling to do their job of protecting those Republicans.

One or the other.

WMAL was my favorite station of when I was a youth. Hardin and Weaver, Felix Grant, and so on. Long ago, far away. I hear it's changed.

Jay Retard...damn libs can't spell.

Oh, the wailing and nashing of politically correct teeth.

Nonsense, who doesn't want to hear about faeces smeared on Capitol doors.

Little April was not the best student in Sunday school. Usually she slept through the class.

One day the teacher called on her while she was napping, "Tell me, April, who created the universe?"

When April didn't stir, little Johnny, a boy seated in the chair behind her, took a pin and jabbed her in the rear. "GOD ALMIGHTY!" shouted April and the teacher said, "Very good" and April fell back asleep.

A while later the teacher asked April, "Who is our Lord and Savior," but April didn't even stir from her slumber. Once again, Johnny came to the rescue and stuck her again. 'JESUS CHRIST!" shouted April and the teacher said, "very good," and April fell back to sleep.

Then the teacher asked April a third question. "What did Eve say to Adam after she had her twenty-third child?" And again, Johnny jabbed her with the pin. This time April jumped up and shouted, "IF YOU STICK THAT F*****G THING IN ME ONE MORE TIME, I'LL BREAK IT IN HALF AND STICK IT UP YOUR ASS!"

The teacher fainted ... but not before congratulating April on her correct answer.

Go Jane! Teachers like her we need.

Glad to see (hear) you're getting to reach an even wider audience.

vbspurs said...

Last I'd seen containment hadn't failed at the first. You probably know more than I, mum.

Say a prayer for those people.

It used to be the boys would send some guy named No-Nose Calvelli to deliver that kind of message and the cops would usually take offense.

Now the cops are doing the mob's work.

Welcome to the United Soviet Socialist States of America.

vbspurs said...

Andrew pronounces Althouse with a broad A (as in Al Gore), rather than a closed one, as I do (awlt-house). Who's to say who is right.

lemondog said...

Sounds like he is saying 'Outhouse"

Quayle said...

Queued up and listening.

I want to hear unfiltered, hard core, steel trap analysis.

But no pressure.

vbspurs said...

LOL, Quayle. I'm curious how Lincolntf will react to her accent. First time, I was expecting her to have those flat Midwestern vowels, though I knew full well she was from Delaware.

Lincolntf said...

I'm listening...

vbspurs said...

Here we go, Andrew pimping this very blog. "Best blog this side of Milwaukee".

vbspurs said...

Meade can come to the line! Go Lawrence!

vbspurs said...

I'm listening...

The tinny quality of the line is mangling her voice...

Quayle said...

You're doing fine, Ann. Breath. Take a sip of wine during Andrew's next question. Take a deep breath.

And jump back in.

Lincolntf said...

Definitely Eastern! Never woulda guessed it. Sounds a bit like one of the NPR heads out of Cambridge, but I can't remember her name.

vbspurs said...

Ann sounds excited. She's usually very regal in her vlogs.

OOOOOOOOOOH. Ann corrects the pronunciation of her name!!

Quayle said...

Good correction - it was starting to sound like Outhouse.

Lincolntf said...

Nice catch with the "Outhouse" correction. Sounded bizarre.

vbspurs said...

Sounds a bit like one of the NPR heads out of Cambridge, but I can't remember her name.

Terry Gross?

And yes, very eastern seaboard. :)

Third Coast said...

Is that a northeastern/new yawk twang I detect?

vbspurs said...

Is that a northeastern/new yawk twang I detect?

I don't know about Delaware, but the folks from Cranston, RI sound positively Brooklyn.

Quayle said...

Vulnerable because nobody told them that they need to be their own person and not float along in the lefty stream.

Quayle said...

Heeeeeeeeeerrrrrrreeeeeee's Lawrence!

Lincolntf said...

Go Get 'Em Meade!!

vbspurs said...

This is my first time hearing Meade. Nice laugh!

vbspurs said...

Wow, he sounds exactly like JFK Jr! How eerie.

Quayle said...

He's a natural.

I'm thinking the 4 - 6 PM drive time slot would be perfect.

You agree?

Lincolntf said...

AA managed to hit on all the salient points that have been (at least nationally) deliberately lost by the media.
Great job.

vbspurs said...

I think Meade is doing well, considering he's not as used to being interviewed as Ann is.

AprilApple said...

Nice job.

vbspurs said...

I'm thinking the 4 - 6 PM drive time slot would be perfect.

I'd listen to it, and would be willing to pay for VIP access to the studio.

lyssalovelyredhead said...

Nice job.

It sounds so funny to me to hear Althouse and Meade called "Ann" and "Lawrence".

The Crack Emcee said...

I'm listening to it - Meade's on now, discussing the woman who lost her job.

I'm glad to hear that, actually. Makes all the crap libs have put me through feel balanced out, somehow.

You guys sound great.

Lincolntf said...

I love Breitbart, but if I called him "Brateburt" all the time, wouldn't he expect me to wise up after the second correction?
Come on, Big Garble, get with the picture.

Great point on Madison liberals think they are the epitome of good. It really is a bubble over there.

Jay Retread said...

God, I can not believe I just wasted ten minutes of my life listening to that. Though it was funny when this guy, who I have barely heard of, gave Ann/Meade the lapdog brush off at the end.

vbspurs said...

"Brateburt"

*snert*

Reminds me when folks pronounce it "Breetling" and not "Brightling" for Breitling.

Hey Crack!

The Crack Emcee said...

vbspurs,

Hey!

TosaGuy,

Great point on Madison liberals think they are the epitome of good.

I thought that was good, too.

I'm still listening - there was a murder/sexual assault at a yoga studio.

Man, that's a liberal town.

Third Coast said...

For amateurs, they done good. Technically though, I suppose AA is a professional yakker.

Ann Althouse said...

About the pronunciation of my last name. People who say it like that are influenced by their knowledge of German. It's a German name. He's pronouncing the "Al" the way you'd pronounce the "Al" in "Al Gore."

It doesn't make so much sense to say it like "all" as in "you all," now, does it? When I pronounce it that way to someone who has to spell it, they assume it begins with "O."

TosaGuy said...

I didn't know that one gal got fired.

I don't think any of these people comprehend that civil disobedience or bad manners sometimes has consequences.

Civil Rights marchers knew they were getting arrested and getting the firehose.

In Madison, this is "civil disobedience" as one big party. Everyone has a hobby. Every city has a common tradition. It Madison, it's protest theater. If there were real arrests and real fines or jail time, or actual consequences for skipping work, then far fewer would write doctor slips, kick in wooden doors, hassle those who disagree with them or fake sick days. It's all a big game and what those in Madison don't realize is the rest of the state sees it for what it really is....spoiled insular children.

TosaGuy said...

Just occurred to me with all of these recalls. WI will have voter ID by the time any recall election takes place.

Now, she may learn the significance of the monuments "she designs".

Thank you for the update.

Re: Althouse's accent

I get a kick out of the mix of familiar regionalities in Althouse's speech (which jumped out at me starting in podcast days). Her speech definitely has a mix of Delaware and the Midwest (with a strong dose of academic-type, university-town cadence thrown in), all three of which patterns I'm very familiar with.

Lincolntf said...

I (and I assume others) see the "Alt-" part of Althouse as looking like the beginning of "Alternative". If it was spelled Althaus, I would probably (unconsciously) pronounce it the German way, but maybe not.
My own curse is that I have a surname that causes everyone to ask "one M or two?", and they still always screw it up.

PaulV said...

I thought AA's name was pronounced Our House.

reader_iam said...

Meade, on the other hand? No Delaware there. But the speech pattern/accent is likewise oh so familiar.

edutcher said...

Ann doesn't have an accent. Neither do I.

All you people who don't come from around Philadelphia have accents.

So there.

Jay Retread said...

God, I can not believe I just wasted ten minutes of my life listening to that. Though it was funny when this guy, who I have barely heard of, gave Ann/Meade the lapdog brush off at the end.

No, he never heard of Breitbart, the guy who broke ACORN.

Of course not.

It's just a coincidence the voodoo doll next to his bed looks exactly like a guy with the initials A. B.

reader_iam said...

Say "water," Ed. Also, the word "mine." For example.

; )

Jay: He was coming up on a hard break, which Meade may not have realized. The Larry Kudlow Show starts at 7 p.m. (eastern, thus 6 p.m. central).

I gather that Breitbart is somewhat new at broadcast radiocasting, so maybe he didn't handle that as elegantly as he might (and trust me, I'm no Breitbart fan--just trying to be fair). And I assume Meade's not all that experienced** at being a broadcast guest.

Yet, anyway.

**Althouse, on the other hand, has been on the radio many times.

PJ said...

I love Breitbart, but if I called him "Brateburt" all the time, wouldn't he expect me to wise up after the second correction?

I'm guessing he was preoccupied with the warning that he'd better not say "Larry."

And was that the debut of old-media Meade?

Next time he calls you Ann Outhouse, call him Andrew Beerfart. That'll teach him.

Google yankee-rebel [or vice versa] language test. There's an advanced one, too. My rebel score was 12% on one.

Milwaukie guy: I tried the test and I got the following:

45% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom.

What the--?

Just, wow. And an LOL, too.

That's okay. It's not like you were going to do anything important with them.
