Our grass is opposite-- brown in summer and green in winter. It's grass backwards.

We get an extra day in NY state. Columbus is Italian, like our governor. It gives me an extra day to catch up. You need more Italians in Wisconsin! Sometimes it seems like a flat earth society over there.

While in a meeting I was doing tasks on the iPad like mail, etc., as opposed to listening intently, when I clicked Safari instead of my mail, right next to it.

Althouse was there.

The guy sitting next to me groaned. "I never read her" he said.

But clearly, he did.

Fred4Pres said...

You cannot unsee this once you see it... It is very very wrong.

Doberman doing the lawn thing not an hour ago (video)

Her quilt is drying nearby.

Fred4Pres said...

Yes, unfortunately he does.

Pogo said...

Fred, I believe those are swim trunks, not shorts.

Pogo said...

And that's an old camera bag.

A manly camera bag. Yeah, that's the ticket.

edutcher said...

No rest for the wicked, but he should have gotten your attention by tickling your belly.

Or a kiss.

Or something.

PS What Pogo said - and a camera bag.

Check out Drudge!!

He has a video of Occupy Atlanta telling Rep. John Lewis to take a hike.

Sheeple!! The place was over-run with Sheeple!

It also reminded me of an old Star Trek episode..."The Way to Eden"

Are you one, Herbert?

traditionalguy said...

Tyrone Slothrop...I was reading your favorable comments on HotAir about Herman Cain.

The man is lapping the field while Perry and Romney are still taking breaks.

The other commenters over there accused me of being a paid staff member working for Herman.

Cain is all the excitement we have left after the Braves and the Falcons crashed.

And paranoia is in the air at HotAir.

Hagar said...

The Solyndra thing reminds me of a tale I was told in the 60's about a sharp operator who seeded an area in the New Mexico high desert with wheat (none grew, of course), and then collected farm sunsidy for not doing that agin.

One of the actors from that episode, Charles Napier, died just last week.

Today's photos of Althouse make me want to buy stock in sun screen manufacturers.

Silvio is back there glowering....damn judgmental German cars!

"damn judgmental German cars!"

Now is ze time on Althouse vhen ve dance!

edutcher said...

Interesting post at Hot Air. The old ACORN front, the Working Families Party, may be paying protestors.

For that, we need to see more skin.

I saw the obit for Mr. Napier. I recognized his face, but couldn't put it in a context.

Wow! You're scaring me dude!! How does one remember these things??

America's Politico said...

The No. 2 in the Senate has said it: The GOP will pay for opposing the best POTUS in our history.

He was one of the A-Team's pursuers for all those years and, before that, he played the scout in a short-lived Western, "The Oregon Trail".

He's probably best remembered as one of Sly Stallone's nemeses (nemesises?) in the second Rambo.

But, yeah, I tend to follow a lot of the character actors.

PS Too good to keep.

Zero wanted to stop at Hiroshima and Nagasaki during the apology tour, but the Japanese objected.

Considering only 41% want a second term for him (listening, AP?), Axelrod must be hoping nobody remembers WWII.

Fred4Pres said...

You say swim trunks, but they are pretty bad as swim trunks. I would not expect the Duke to wear a speedo either.

It is the poster of why shorts in public are unholy and wrong. The man-purse/camera bag only adds insult to injury.

Fred4Pres said...

There is something very wrong in seeing the Duke's camel toe.

Pogo said...

Gotta agree, Fred.

Yipe. Camel's nose under the tent and all.

Best to avert one's eyes, and take a big slug of liquor.

Congrats to Prof. Thomas Sargent on winning the Nobel for Economics. Perhaps the Nobel committee is trying to rehab the bad name it's given itself in other disciplines?

Sargent quotes:
*“The calculations that I have seen supporting the stimulus package are back-of-the-envelope ones that ignore what we have learned in the last 60 years of macroeconomic research.”
*"Europe’s generous unemployment compensation system has made an important contribution to sustained high European unemployment." "If, in the United States, we create a system where unemployment and disability benefits are permanently extended in their generosity and their duration, we will inadvertently put ourselves into the situation that much of Europe has suffered for three decades."
*“What induced one major Western country after another to run a more-or-less balanced budget in the 19th century and early 20th century before World War I was their decision to adhere to the gold standard.”
*"Nothing can be more surely established by a larger experience than that a Government which interferes with any trade injures that trade. "

Given the Yankees losing and the Giants falling to the Seahawks, this picture might send Trooper over the edge.

Fred4Pres said...

Someone blocked the John Wayne short page...maybe it is for the best. Those shorts were unholy and all Ann would have to do in the future when shorts came up is point to that picture and argument over! Althouse wins!

Fred4Pres said...

Here it is again.

Truly not good. Do not look at it.

Meade said...

"I'll rake your yard for five bucks."

You'd have to give me at least ten.

Unless you have a poodle I can pet while we both watch you rake.

For a poodle, I'd call it even.

Clyde said...

Top story on Drudge right now is how Al Qaeda is questioning the legality of the killing of Al-Awlaki and Samir Khan (the other "American" guy who ate the drone sandwich). I just laughed and said, "Hey, Al Qaeda! See my finger?!"

Other stories about Obama the Loner were also interesting. He's going all Milhous-y on us.

Clyde said...

I also liked this story from the UK: Children to be banned from blowing up balloons under EU safety rules

As well as new rules for balloons and party whistles, the EU legislation will impose restrictions on how noisy toys, including rattles or musical instruments, are allowed to be.

All teddie bears meant for children under the age of three will now have to be fully washable because EU regulators are concerned that dirty cuddly toys could spread disease and infection.

...

"These safety standards have been agreed by the UK together with the other EU member states in order to prevent every parent's worst nightmare," said a spokesman.

Another EU official admitted that the new regulations could be difficult to understand but insisted that safety experts knew best.

"You might say that small children have been blowing up balloons for generations, but not anymore and they will be safer for it," said an official.


Imagine if those EU "experts" regulated their currency as well as they regulated children's toys. No balloons for you, Greeks!

@tradguy

Yeah, it took me a while to start taking him seriously, but now I'm one of the faithful. It bothered me that he seemed to join in on the N_____head controversy, but if you listen to what he said, he was criticizing the word, not Perry. Like I said at HotAir, BS Math, MS CompSci and his business record finally convinced me.

Petunia said...

I have a toy poodle! I don't rake much though...carpal tunnel and all. Plus the neighbor kid likes to earn a few bucks.

Why has no one commented on The Duke's espadrilles?

Calypso Facto said...

@ TradGuy & Tyrone: and Chairman of the Federal Board of Reserve! Hope for an actual understanding of basic economics!

Fred4Pres said...

The Obligatory Columbus Day Clip.

Sort of complementary with the Duke's shorts post.

And Clyde, agree the idea that al Qaeda is into rule of law just wants me to unleash some more aerial justice on them.

Fred4Pres said...

Petunia, I admit that I did not know what espadrilles were. You learn something new every day.

chickenlittle said...

@Fred4Pres: That photo appears to support Miller's thesis in Repo Man: link.

Deborah said...

Those may be swim trunks and a camera bag but what about those shoes?

Deborah said...

Whoops sorry I see someone is alreay on to the espadrilles.

Re: John Wayne in shorts.

Question to the guys. Wouldn't it hurt to wear your shorts like that? It can't be good for the boys to be squished that way.

America's Politico said...

Just got the next Qtr funds data. We have exceeded the goal by two-fold. To put it in another perspective. For every dollar raised by all 9 GOP candidates, the best POTUS in the history gets $100. That is awesome. We are going to bury the GOP. We have so many new donors that it is incredible. It is like 2008 revisited, only ten times better. GOP: Watch out.

chickenlittle said...

What about thongs on you girls? Don't they ever chafe?

chickenlittle said...

"gals" not "girls." Sorry about the lapse in sensitivity.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

That's what made me ask.

I saw the recent Stallone film, The Expendables. The movie featured a number of the older action stars doing their action star thing. There were lots of explosions and guys saying manly things before they beat each other to death. You got your money's worth I suppose, but even for a Stallone film it was very formulaic and manipulative. I wish to draw particular attention to the water boarding scene. Since when did water boarding become the preferred method of torture for evil masterminds. Saddam had a harness rigged to drop his victims in vats of acid. Al Queada used to use power drills on their victims. They started on the knees and worked their way up. Those methodd are far more diabolical and cinematic than waterboarding. Nevertheless, this movie used waterboarding. I think this is meant as a subliminal way of showing us how evil Bush/Cheney really are--although I'm not discounting the possiblity that Stallone is simply stupid. Many of you are probably saying that for exploitation purposes, waterboarding offers an excellent opportunity to indulge in wet t-shirt action. No such luck. If the young woman who was being waterboarded had nipples, there were not in evidence that scene.....I know that there is a huge overlap of Stallone fans and Althouse followers so I just want to warn them away from this film.

John Wayne is an actor, not a rough and tumble cowboy.

solipsism (noun) The idea that, actually, only you exist.

Doesn't it strike you as possibly the case that the twentieth century, where the intellectual and romantic odysseys usually begin with yourself and end with yourself, becomes the age therefore of solipsism?

You guys do know his real name was Marion right.......

Very common in them thar days.

After Francis Marion, hero of the American revolution.

Marian, as in The Librarian, was for girls.

To be sure, that fuckwit Steyn could write an "America Upward" or "America Determined" or "America Steadfast" or "America Forward*" or "America Challenged and Determined" or "American Twain" or "Sinatra's America: WE AIN'T LOSIN SHIT"
or something akin and redeem himself.

*MessssNBseeee and UW both might be worthy of shaedenfreude (spelling is wrong dont' care bout that nor grammar) but Steyn is of a rare talent to paradigm shift them.

Been waiting for this all day. The only thing to watch out for is AP's head exploding like one of those old "Mission: Impossible" tapes.

Apparently when GodZero isn't reprising Nixon, he's busy alienating his Party.

Lighten up, it's a movie. Most people watch them to be entertained, only a few expect to be (ahem...) enlightened.

Never heard about the acid, although I read Saddam got the idea for feeding people he didn't like into an industrial shredder from "License To Kill". So I guess life imitated art.

Or something.

In any case, having sat through the Left-wing drivel that is the plot of "RED", I can say it does have its moments and, if you can turn off your brain to the usual Hollyweird paranoia about "war crimes" and secret organizations, Bruce Willis, John Malkovitch, Morgan Freeman (don't worry, he isn't in it that much), and Helen Mirren (looking smashing, may I say) make a pretty good B+ Team.

Perry ad on Romney reminds me of SNL digital short (jizz in my pants).

Perry is scared.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfcOGWRfXdk

If I were Romney, I would just for the kill on Tuesday. Perry is scared, shaking, and about to jizz...

Lem said...

A possible floating Althouse reference..

edutcher said...

Baloney.

It's a good, tough ad that was going to be made by whomever Romney's big rival turns out to be.

Romney's going to have plenty to do fending off questions stemming from that ad - he won't have time to be attacking anybody.

PS Anonymous sounds like a bad Titus imitator.

I like the ad.

The first fifteen seconds seem like a typical, dopey attack ad. But, then it gets interesting. Peppy music and Plenty of Romney's own words (including disappearing words).

And, that Carter endorsement has got to hurt (assuming it's true). BHO and Carter. Ouch!
