"BlueCheddar melts, pulls video confession of 'beer pouring' guy..."

"... but the internet never forgets."

Via Instapundit, who connects that with something I said earlier today.

Wow. Redefines "slam dunk".

traditionalguy said...

OK, throwing rotten heritage tomatoes on a politician is certainly not violence, but throwing beer on a baptist would be mayhem.

Stupid lives forever on the 'Net.

Triangle Man said...

"To me it was like the old style of taking off the glove and slapping the guy with the glove, except, with crappy beer instead."

Miles? Oh, its the same Miles [Kirstan] that made the inflatable Prosser.

Quayle said...

It is hard for these highly trained lemmings to fathom that doing stuff that a crowd cheers on could actually be illegal.

"That can't be! Can it?"

ndspinelli said...

Isn't beer a sacramental beverage in Wisconsin?

Miles Kristan: rich kid from Door County who hasn't known what to do with himself since the anti-war protests fizzled out (btw--we must've gotten out of those wars by now since it's so quiet, right?!?)

All kinds of videos of his rabble rousing here. Again...the Internet never forgets.

Brennan said...

He spoke of "wasting" a Miller High Life. I was pretty certain that wasting the champagne of beers in Wisconsin is a capitol offense.

Take it from the Miller High Life guy.

MadisonMan said...

Miller Lite isn't really beer, so it's not wasting beer.

Now, pouring a Spotted Cow, or a Hopalicious? That would have been a waste.

Fred4Pres said...

I had blue jack and was disappointed...oh wait, this is about moldy Wisconsin politics.

Nevermind.

Fred4Pres said...

MadisonMan, my wife loves Spotted Cow but I preferred Fat Squirrel. Both were excellent. Kudos to Wisconsin's small brewers.

garage mahal said...

Apparently Kirstan, when asked which kind of Miller he wanted, said "it doesn't matter".

MnMark said...

Go check out Miles Kirstan's Facebook page. He is "general manager" of something called "pissing off whitie".

Makes me think that what he needs is 90 days of enjoying the enrichingly diverse environment of the county jail. He can tell all his bro's about how much he loves pissing off whitie. I'm sure they'll take his skinny geeky white self into their richly diverse prison community and give him some of their special love.

DADvocate said...

He poured a Miller Lite on the guy? There's extra penalties for that since it's the equivalent of horse piss.

Pogo said...

Seriously, why hasn't anyone punched this asshole in the nose yet?

Someone takes having beer poured on them? Why weren't fists flying?

back in the days when I was home brewing I sent a sample of craft to the local lab for analysis-I was shocked--shocked--when the report came back: dear sir, your horse has diabetes

Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could define lunacy by a particular political point of view?

If you looked at our globe, for instance ... you'd see a clearly defining "line" between day and night. One side is lit by the sun. The other only has the moon.

Or, if you went and flipped a coin. You'd reference one side as front (or UP), and the other side as its reverse.

But you can't do this with lunacy.

The guy who thinks pouring beer on someone else's head is a LUNATIC! You don't need any other definition. You don't have to give him an apartment (like the guy who pulled down the Israeli flag off of its embassy in Cairo got.) You can just clearly define a LUNATIC ... and in some places the LUNATIC is rewarded.

In others? He's living in the basement of his parent's home. Where everyone from family to neighbors all know he's a lunatic.

Calypso Facto said...

Why weren't fists flying?

Because the bouncer was already removing him when he dumped the beer.

Apparently Kirstan... said "it doesn't matter".

He doesn't look like he's ever had a man-card, so nothing to revoke unfortunately.

O/T: garage, why aren't you all over that heirloom tomato thread?

Carol_Herman said...

I have another example.

Jews are supposed to be terribly offended by swastikas. But ya know what? Back around 1939 ... When John Wheeler (age 28), meets Richard Feynman (age 21) ... they begin by joking around about "inertia." Which Einstein says comes out of the state of motion.

They come up with the Mach example ... of a lawn sprinkler. That has jets that force a swastika pattern.

It's good not to be afraid of symbols.

And, it's good to know not everyone who slurps beer belongs to any particular political persuasion. (Or sexual group.)

The story should have been a non-starter. Or else it's something worth discussing in a madhouse. Where lunatics with psychiatric disturbances can be treated humanly.

Pogo said...

"Because the bouncer was already removing him when he dumped the beer."

Sounds like he was an easy target right then.

Seriously, this guy needs a dose of reality. Pain is often effective that way.

Prolly why I ain't a state senator.

Fred Drinkwater said...

As Triangle Man quoted:
"To me it was like the old style of taking off the glove and slapping the guy with the glove, except, with crappy beer instead."
So... old style. Does he realize what the canonical next step is, and more importantly, who now gets to chose the weapon?

Dan said...

what a douche bag! along with his backers/supporters.....long live us corporate whores!!!!

Titus said...

That William Jacobson dude is creepy looking.

That smile looks kind of crazy.

Tits!

Haha. Got busy here.

Coketown said...

Sometimes Iranian justice seems like a good idea. But then you think of cases like this, and how ungratifying it would be if all this little shit got was a beer poured over his head in retribution. Felony battery has a nice ring to it.

BJM said...

What a bunch of chickenshit pishers.

Goldenpause said...

Another liberal profile in courage.

ALH said...

At the convergence of smug, satisfaction, and douchebaggery....you will find young Miles.

Miles Kristan: rich kid from Door County who hasn't known what to do with himself since the anti-war protests fizzled out

He's from Racine and based on how he claims to support himself wealthy doesn't come to mind.

Racine native turns self in over Vos beer-pouring incident

"Kristan grew up in Racine and moved to Madison this winter to be a part of the protests. For a few weeks he lived in the Capitol and later in "Walkerville," the tent community outside the Capitol. He cooks at a Madison area restaurant, he said without being specific.

Joanna said...

I used to know a chick who did that. Instead of beer, she always used cranberry vodka (so it would be sticky & stain). She also was quick to remove her hoop earrings before getting into a bar fight.

I don't hang out with her anymore.

Paul Zrimsek said...

Noodles are involved, I'll warrant.

Brian Hancock said...

There should be a way to tie this into Ann's mob post, but not clever enough to do this.

John said...

Shouldn't be hard to find this turd's phone number.

Perhaps some Althousian can call him up for a chat?

It would be interesting to hear what he has to say when he is not in his echo chamber.

mesquito said...

Is there a problem here? Althouse never goes an hour between comments.

policraticus said...

Back when old school glove slapping was current it was a direct, unequivocal and undeniable invitation to meet at a convenient place and formally attempt to kill each other with swords or guns. I don't doubt that Miles would like to run three feet of cold steel through some GOP guts, but would he be willing to get run through himself, I wonder? It is a special kind of coward who hits somebody who they know won't hit back.

Tim said...

"Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could define lunacy by a particular political point of view?"

Um, in short, no.

The totalitarians (Soviets & Nazis) have already been there - the Left owns it - so it's much better to know "you can define the Left by their need to define opposing political views as insane."

Insufficiently Sensitive said...

Over on the Legal Insurrection site, it's been pointed out that the beer assault on a public official could be taken legally as a felony. Apparently the local prosecutor ignored that statute.

But we might reflect on the majority of voters who emplaced said public official upon his election. Are they not 'stakeholders' in this travesty, by virtue of the disrespect shown to each of them by this snivelling street urchin?

Might they combine into some sort of class action and sue the pants off of him?

Karl said...

C_F helpfully points out....
Bands
... the Beatles

Movies
...Loose Change

He had me until the Beatles. Then he throws down Loose Change

He's got hirsute old hippie broads as his entourage.

Heh. Miles is a hillbilly hat wearing pussy.

Largo said...

Make him pay for the dry cleaning. For all three gentlemen. For every garment that received as much as one drop of that beer. Alas, it might not be worth their hassle (small claims court?).

Just the right degree of condescension (you've damaged my jacket, not me), message (you are responsible for cleaning up your mess), and humiliation (hopefully having to at least feign contrition to the judge) for this punk, I think.

nfortunately it could prove to be too great a hassle for the three gentlemen (yes, all three should quite properly opportunity ssle. My first thought would be garment that received as much as one drop of that beer. Alas, it might not be worth their hassle (small claims court?).

dammit, that's the last time i'm posting from my cellphone. (technically, the second last.)

I guess hiding evidence didn't get taught at the Co-Op during freshmen protest training.

Yes, the 'pull' is a delicious 'tell'.

Lincolntf said...

We must have enough material by now to do a quality montage of the 9 months of Madison Liberals alternately calling for violence and destruction, then committing the violence and destruction, and then finally denying that violence or destruction were ever called for or committed. It's been one long loop of the same transparent garbage since February, do they think nobody notices?

Calypso Facto said...

James: I wrote what I did based on his My Space page that says while he was born in Racine, he graduated from high school in Fish Creek (Door County). It also put his annual income at $250,000k. Not bad for a part-time faux-journalist!

Curious George said...

He's a professional asshat. Sadly, I'll bet he is aware of this thread and is digging it.

wv: unmas. For those that didn't heed no mas.

Godot said...

Substitute beer for water and 'board' his smug ass.
