I thought that Alpha was the favorite target.

You know: TOT.....

Larry J said...

Well, you know what they say.

Garage in, garbage out.

Pogo said...

Ouch.

chickenlittle said...

Perhaps Garage blew a 50 amp fuse...

Ouch, indeed. Though as nail-on-chalkboard as GM can be, Alpha was far more annoying.

Curious George said...

"Brooks was here"
"So was Red"
"And garage too"

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

It's not easy being garage.

traditionalguy said...

I believe Garage is going through a change of life and will emerge shortly as a wing nut Conservative.

But that will be no fun.

David said...

"I thought that Alpha was the favorite target."

Garage shows occasional humility. Alpha? Never.

This is a good day to be humble, Garage. Show your human side. We will embrace you.

Curious George said...

garage mahal said...

The state senate is going to flip to the Dem-14 in just a few weeks. Chew on that champ. Duh!

Alpha's family has requested donations to the Bolshevick Retirement Home in lieu of flowers.

Sixty Grit said...

Oh my - that's harsh! I hope someone got his shoestrings and belt.

Shouting Thomas said...

This is a good day to be humble, Garage. Show your human side. We will embrace you.

No

fucking

way

Garbage, get your ass out here!

Walker is completely fucked!

Right, garbage?

Ann Althouse said...

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Garage pass out at Michael's Frozen Custard last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

AJ Lynch said...

hahaha good one!

Quayle said...

Oh the humanity!

Clyde said...

Garage and Alpha Liberal were positively Geithnerian in their predictions.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

garage is actually Abe Froman, the sausage king of Chicago.

Garage Mahal's last known space-time coordinates: link.

The Crack Emcee said...

Help!

Saint Croix said...

I love that movie.

Roger J. said...

in the interests of full disclosure Garage and I are poles apart politically--but he is a decent guy plus I am getting a commission on referring him to my friends place in the bahamas (joke)

Garage and I remain friends on a level outside the blog environment--he's a good guy

ricpic said...

Seems like yesterday Ben Stein was young.

garage mahal said...

My head hurts.

Scott M said...

My head hurts.

Your ears should be burning bigtime.

Fred4Pres said...

Roman Opalka tribute? tribute? tribute? tribute?

Patrick said...

And Garage is OK! Huzzah!

I think he knows how I felt in Nov '08.

ex-madtown girl said...

Michael's has nothing on Kopp's. Just thought I'd put that out there.

caplight said...

group hug!

Curious George said...

Come gather 'round lefties
At the Capitol dome
And admit that the recalls
Have brought a new gloam
And accept it that soon
What most of Wisconsin has known.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better stop protestin’
Cuz you’re sunk like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

Unlike most of the resident lefties, garage makes this place more interesting. I'm glad he survived the night.

bagoh20 said...

I wish I was either smart enough or stupid enough to get such Althouse acclaim. I really don't care which. Fame is it's own reward.

Now he's a leftist martyr for carrying the flag.

ALH said...

"My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Garage pass out at Michael's Frozen Custard last night. I guess it's pretty serious."

HA!!

Chip S. said...

Now he's a leftist martyr for carrying the flag.

Think of it as affirmative action for the reasoning-impaired.

Fen said...

Meh. Not going to kick him when he's down.

Pogo said...

Good to see you back, Garage.

madAsHell said...

Garage and I remain friends on a level outside the blog environment

Garage is a real person?? Why does he hang out here?

Trooper York said...

Hey Garage Mahal is allright with me.

He just has to get over his totally mistaken and misguided views.

He has to realize that the New York Giants are going to win the Super Bowl.

Trooper York said...

The Green Packers are being recalled.

bagoh20 said...

Garage, walk toward the light!

Pastafarian said...

You know, of the liberal Althouse commenters, only garage can take anyone having fun at his expense. I've never seen anything close to self-deprecation from Alpha, or Ritzy Brassiere (whatever happened to that guy?), or Cooke.

purplepenquin said...

I often wondered if Ann was serious with her commentary or if she simply liked stirring the pot and rousing the rabble.

This post seems to answer that question pretty clearly.

bagoh20 said...

We do need more lefties here, a lot more. I'm not suggesting a breeding program, but maybe Althouse could beat on Bush for a while to lure them in. Maybe a post along the lines of:

"Bush seen with Palin on corporate jet hunting polar bears with assault rifles."

Kirk Parker said...

Making fun of a guy on suicide watch? Have you no shame???

DADvocate said...

My head hurts.

Take two apsirin and don't call me in the morning.

Nothing surprises me in Wisconsin any more, except sanity.

Chip S. said...

This post seems to answer that question pretty clearly.

You mean this post that's drawn only 11 more comments than a webisode of Mendocino Forest Rangers, with most of the comments being sympathetic to garage?

I feel confident that I speak for all the rabble here when I thank you for deigning to toss your pearls of wisdom before us.

Christopher in MA said...

"My head hurts."

Banging it against the wall all night will do that, garage.

Pastafarian said...

bagoh's right, Althouse. You need to throw the lefties some red meat. There aren't enough of them left around here to make it sporting.

It's really not Althouse's fault, it's ours. We need to exercise a little restraint next time. Maybe we should issue permits, and you have to tag your liberal douchebag immediately after eviscerating him.

Fen said...

We do need more lefties here, a lot more.

They don't last long.

SJL said...

Trooper York - I thought you were a Steelers fan. If not, you should be.

Hoosier Daddy said...

"...Ritzy Brassiere (whatever happened to that guy?),..."

Beard of the Prophet! Don't say his name! Didnt you ever see Candyman?!

madawaskan said...

Well Alpha Liberal engaged in premature ..gloating.

And Houston the Republicans do have a problem-even though they have a majority of one-

didn't Schultz or someone with a name like that vote with the Democrats?

So .....ya. Would be nice to have a greater margin than the one vote.

********

In defense of garage-

I didn't read all of the threads yesterday-but in the one I did see-within minutes he admitted he wasn't that positive and then he made a rather cogent prediction of the outcome-

Here's the replay-

Dude are you that sure-it's going to go your way?

garage mahal said...
No I'm not sure. And less confident than two weeks ago. Dems are playing on GOP turf, and they need to win 3 out of 6. Not easy.

Chip S.,

And he stoppeth one of three.

Now wherefore stopp'st thou me?"

That was great!

Thanks for the laugh.

garage

Thanks for the specifics-national news is rather distracted right now.

8/9/11 2:12 PM


Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...
You probably don't need to worry Garage. Like the Democrats, the Republicans ran away from the budget issue. Big mistake for them. It reduced the races to smear campaigns on both sides. That tends to turn off all but the most organized voters.

Christopher in MA said...
"No, I'm not sure. And less confident than two weeks ago."

So much for trying to channel America's Politico, eh, garage?

In order to do so accurately, you have to mention "burning" and "in their tanks" at least a couple times a day.

garage mahal said...
I predict two Dem wins [Shilling King], two GOP wins [Harsdorf Cowles], and two recounts. [Darling/Pasch - Olsen/Clark]

That's not that far off.

madawaskan said...

I get that everyone is having fun trash talking but that was about the only solid prediction made, and he didn't do that bad.

Blue@9 said...

"My head hurts."

It's been hurting all of us for a while now.

Original Mike said...

I'm puzzled as to why garage isn't on here pushing some crap voter fraud link.

Chip S. said...

"Voter fraud" is a tough sell when you lose by 54-46 percent. Nobody thinks Kathy Nickolaus is that talented.

Hoosier Daddy said...

"...Meh. Not going to kick him when he's down..."

My God....we lost Fen....

madawaskan said...

All hail Garage Mahal!
Like Dick Nixon after the 1960 election, who will we have to kick around anymore?

Chip S. said...

Just like Nixon, garage will return. Tanned, rested, and ready. With his superfriend, Agnew Liberal.

Palladian said...

"My God....we lost Fen...."

I know! If ever we could count on someone to kick a guy when he's down, it was Fen! Ooh-rah!

At least we still have Shouty. He's always willing to land that extra boot-blow on a guy writhing on the ground and bleeding from the ears.

Scott M said...

Just like Nixon, garage will return. Tanned, rested, and ready. With his superfriend, Agnew Liberal.

Don't you mean Headless Body Of Agnew?

Chip S. said...

If we're going with headless bodies, I'll take Ted Williams.

Whoops. Ted's a bodiless head.

Chip S. said...

Again, just like Nixon.

Scott M said...

If we're going with headless bodies, I'll take Ted Williams.

Isn't he technically a bodiless head?

Original Mike said...

"I know! If ever we could count on someone to kick a guy when he's down, it was Fen! Ooh-rah!"

I'll do it. The dick was blowing his mouth off for months.

This is what democracy looks like, loser.

I know the feeling. I survived a similar ghastly night in good company. Now, nearly three years later, and certainly not coincidentally, my ghastly nights are spent a few shelves lower, in the company of rougher, meaner companions.

Carol_Herman said...

Well, exactly what was the professor doing? Teaching? Seems to me he was "playing out the clock," by seeking a student because he saw an empty chair.

I didn't see the movie.

Do professors still you black chalk boards?

Didn't students belong to sororities and fraternities ... because there were "houses" that held test answers?

Meanwhile, I hope Garage comes back.

In shopping malls, too, you want to see a whole variety of customers. Not empty spaces, which in the past had been filled by cars.

The name calling bullies here are all ass holes. They collect like bubbles in a glass of water, though. You know why? Canada Dry put a pretty girl on a rock. Gazing into the water. And, this sold what's in the bottle, because people think they're gonna find the naked girl, inside.

Then? They join a club. Is beer the beverage of choice, there?

Meanwhile, I like a house with a garage. No room left, though, to park my car, inside.

Chip S. said...

No, Carol. Canada Dry, oddly enough, has an image of North America on its label.

You're thinking of White Rock, as discussed on this very site last week.

chickenlittle said...

Meanwhile, I like a house with a garage. No room left, though, to park my car, inside.

Not having basements, many Californians use their garage as such.

Not me though, of course.

chickenlittle said...

@ChipS. Perhaps Carol just misremembered.

I did that the other day. Nobody caught it yet.

Chip S. said...

I'm sure you're right, CL, but it seems to be such a vivid image for her that I thought I'd help her find it.

I'm afraid she might be wasting money on Canada Dry when she could be buying White Rock.

madawaskan said...

This thread is ....funny as hell.

Come back to the five and dime-

garage!

Chip S. said...

Actually, I'm disappointed that Carol doesn't seem to have been a fan of the greatest soda brand of them all, Clicquot Club. Not only did it have a cool logo, it even sponsored a banjo orchestra.

madawaskan said...

Laphroaig!

Put that in your ginger-or maybe not.

I think garage might be a redhead.

chickenlittle said...

I'm afraid she might be wasting money on Canada Dry when she could be buying White Rock.

Canada Dry makes OK tonic for G&T's...

What do you suggest instead?

Chip S. said...

Schweppes. Accept no substitute for your G&Ts.

Chip S. said...

And I buy White Rock club soda, just for the label.

What the hell, it's only club soda.

Any tonic water mixed with good English gin is good. I do rather like Fentimans tonic water, though.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Gin gives me the shits so I stick with bourbon.

Palladian said...

Now there's a nugget of, uh, information I could have done without...

I'm not making that up.

The verification word for this comment is ceaucescu.

Could be juniper beriberi. Try switching brands.

I'd guess that Herman Carol adds nothing to his liquor aside, perhaps, from ice cubes made from distilled rainwater.

And he listens to John Cage's 4'33" as he sips.

Scott M said...

"I think garage might be a redhead."

If he is, he's a rogue.

Hoosier Daddy said...

"...Now there's a nugget of, uh, information I could have done without..."

Sorry. I didn't mean to go all Titus on everyone.

Hoosier Daddy said...

"..If he is, he's a rogue..."

Troll or Orc?

Troll or Orc?

Nerd.

Palladian said...

"If he is, he's a rogue."

Or a rouge.

Chip S. said...

Nerd.

FTW!

Or is it a save?

Hoosier Daddy said...

"...Nerd. FTW! Or is it a save?.."

Let me roll. I have a +5 to saving throws.

Scott M said...

BASED ON WHAT? There's is zilch on your character sheet that shows that.

chickenlittle said...

So is he garouge mahal or garogue mahal?

How about garotte mahal? That chokes me up.

madawaskan said...

rogue, rouge...

Yikes! I'm still trying to figure out the damn honey badger thing.

He's more like KHMER ROUGE!

What the flying hell...

I would say something like-

"for realz" but you really can't make that up.

Chip S. said...

All the thread references to redheads must have triggered the wv algorithm to search for dead head Reds.

Hoosier Daddy said...

"...BASED ON WHAT? There's is zilch on your character sheet that shows that..."

It's from the Helm of Teflon Bill that dropped.during the quest to defeat the SEIU Overload.

You know we should come up with a new RPG game called Dungeons and Democrats. Just designing the Monster Manual would provide hours of hilarity and enjoyment.

Hell we can even make garage a rare monster that drops random roadkill recipies.

mariner said...

madawaskan,
Laphroaig!

Laphroaig?! In ginger ale?!!!

Say it ain't so!

madawaskan said...

(your ginger)

I should have said "our" ginger-

mahal...

Plus why Laphroaig when you could get him for cheap?

Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill?

Somehow..I believe that's what hippies drink.

Don't really know-hazarding a guess.

Oh god, thats a recurring gripe on the DDO forums.
