As far as Abe Sauer is concerned.

Abe needs a hug. Politics has always been messy and divisive. Friends are rewarded and enemies punished. It ain't beanbag, Abe. Get over it.

traditionalguy said...

Abe Sour seems to be a hard man to please. Is he German? That would make him a sour kraut.

I suspect he secretly hates his mother and is projecting those feelings on others.

Jay Vogt said...

Kinda surprised Bo Ryan wasn't on the list

AllieOop said...

Hehe Traditionalguy, I'm German. He's just venting, we all need to do it after a bad day or year.

Ron Nelson said...

He put his finger on the PBS conundrum: How can the Koch be so evil as to support Nova?!

chickenlittle said...

I'll bet he regrets that tattoo more than anything.

Abe forgot to write: "Fuck you, Garage Mahal, for blowing our street cred on the Althouse blog."

walter said...

"Fuck you" Abe..for not having the sense to distinguish between private sector unions and public sector unions that can vote in their own management. See FDR. See common sense.

Chuck66 said...

The whole Wisconsin thing is interesting. I had Easter lunch with a bunch of gov't employee relatives and I walked out half way through the dinner by saying "fuck you" to the greedy economically illiterate public servants. I may not be invited back in future years.

Lem said...

FU Abe for distorting the record.. I believe two separate investigations (at least one for sure) cleared Prosser of the choking incident.. and here you are repeating the lie.

He probably didnt want to say fu to the judge accusing Prosser.. lest he be accused of making war against the women.

FU Abe for.. for being a coward.

pauldar said...

Can?

Carnifex said...

He should go to Texas

"It doesn't even matter who wins because it's likely it will all just start over again. The domain RecallFalk.com was registered January 18, 2012 (not by her campaign), the same day Falk announced her candidacy for Walker's position. RecallTomBarrett.com was taken a month later."

Haha! Reap it baby!

Mark said...

Odd how every single "Fuck You" aimed at the Left was cast as an idiot's misunderstanding of the optics of the situation, while every single "Fuck You" aimed at the Right was cast as an indictment of the principles of the parties involved.

For the Left, it seems the trick is in getting the trick right.

John Lynch said...

Reading pieces like this reminds me that some people are in a mental universe so far away that I cannot bridge the distance. It's like a different language full of idioms that I don't understand.

Alex said...

what would garage think?

Dan said...

I liked the article. Abe hates everyone but also makes good points.

Chip Ahoy said...

I did not like that article one single bit because it was kind of negative. Plus he kept saying a potty mouth word over and over. Quite rude. Just move already.

Chip Ahoy said...

Did you notice how he acted like he doesn't even like Wisconsin? Insane.

edutcher said...

He's fucking a lot of women there, although he missed Abrahamson, Kloppenburg, and Bradley.

Wisely, he left Miss Ann alone.

PS Since WI is seen as turnable by some, he'd better invest in some latex. He'll be doing this till November.

rhhardin said...

"Fuck you" isn't an imperative, so I question the grammatical structure.

He wants "fuck yourself," not "fuck you."

Roger J. said...

One would think he could come up with a variety of anglo saxon four letters words.

sudhasap said...

This post has a lot of importance to the people…I hope you can continue to inspire and post more of this…Thanks Online Training!

LOL and still laughing!!!

"Finally, fuck myself. Like many Wisconsinites with a personal attachment to the state and (maybe unreal) idealized notions of what it was, I'm at fault for letting all of this get to me. I should be fucking fishing."

Who shit in Abe Sauer's chili???

Somebody's had a bad day...

Astro said...

Anger management issues.
I worry that he's one Ryder truck full of fertilizer from fixing his problems with Wisconsin.

James said...

HA...quite an entertaining rant; though he seems to have a hard-on for Media Trackers. No doubt they've been effective.

I especially like how he worked in the recall strategy of "John Doe" investigation and "Wisconsin war on women" into his piece. This exact strategy was disclosed by the inexcrable Graeme Zielinski in an recent interview with Mother Jones magazine:

"He Lied to the People of Wisconsin"

It was Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's surprise assault on public-employee unions in 2011 that set in motion the statewide recall campaign to oust him from office. But don't expect Wisconsin's Democratic Party to make workers' rights a central focus in their quest to oust Walker.

In an interview, an official with the Democratic Party of Wisconsin downplayed the importance of the anti-union provisions in Walker's "budget repair" bill in the Democrats' broader recall strategy. "Collective bargaining is not moving people," says Graeme Zielinski, a Democratic Party spokesman. And in the party's new strategy memo (PDF) for defeating Walker, there's little mention of collective bargaining or organized labor in the Democrats' messaging plans.

Walker's controversial anti-union legislation, known as Act 10, curbed collective bargaining rights for most public employees and made it harder for unions to recertify and collect dues from their members. (A federal judge later ruled that the recertification and dues provisions weren't legal.) When Walker introduced the bill—"dropped the bomb," as he put it—and threatened to sic the National Guard on angry public workers, tens of thousands of protesters poured into the streets of Madison, the state capital; thousands more occupied the Capitol rotunda.

The most potent anti-Walker messages, the Dems' strategy memo explains, slam Walker for pushing policies harmful to the middle class, slashing education funding, and grabbing power via a secretive redistricting process. What's more, Zielinski continues, Democrats' anti-Walker strategy will center on two key issues: the secret "John Doe" investigation targeting Walker aides and what Democrats calls Walker's "war on women."


These clowns ALWAYS show their hands. Remember during the 2010 elections when John-David Morgan, Dem operative, was recorded in a bar disclosing their entire strategy against Walker.

>Union fires lobbyist with loose lips

"That was quick.

The Service Employees International Union Local 1 announced Tuesday that it had fired an employee who was secretly recorded talking about his union's plans to work with Democrats to try to defeat Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker in the governor's race.

A spokeswoman for the union announced the action just two days after No Quarter disclosed what John-david Morgan, a lobbyist and researcher for the group, said in the conversation secretly recorded by a Walker campaign employee.

"Immediately after SEIU Local 1 learned of his comments, he was terminated," Leslie Mendoza Kamstra, communications director for the local, said in an e-mail."

James said...

Its quite ironic that the recall proponents are accusing Walker of lying to the state. The recall started by public employee unions in an attempt to restore collective bargaining rights. Yet, they aren't making that restoration an issue in the elections so in actuality the unions themselves are lying to the state.

Tim said...

"Finally, fuck myself. Like many Wisconsinites with a personal attachment to the state and (maybe unreal) idealized notions of what it was, I'm at fault for letting all of this get to me. I should be fucking fishing."

Well, yeah.

Politics distorts.

At least he recognizes that much.

deborah said...

WTF?

"Fuck you, Wisconsin war on women. Just before the recall election was set, Governor Walker signed a slate of new bills amounting to a giant fuck you to women. Starting with a repeal of the state's Equal Pay Enforcement Act, he then repealed the Wisconsin Healthy Youth Act, which stressed “comprehensive sex education." Walker capped it off with two bills forcing women to undergo a physical exam before any abortion (even those done with a pill) and another that bans health-insurance exchange policies from paying for abortions."

Great, I didn't realize Walker was a Neanderthal.

Rusty said...

On a side note.
The new OWS-Madison Division- has posted an admonition to the participants not to piss or sh*t on the capitol floor.

Not only is the lefts ability to reason questionable, but so is their potty training


Alex said...
what would garage think?

Honestly? Who cares.
His credibility currency is a debased as Weimars.

MaggotAtBroad&Wall said...

Are progressives even capable of experiencing joy and happiness? Or are they hard wired to wake up every day and be mierable fucks because the world isn't structured exactly the way they want it to be?

He reminds me of a two-year-old who throws a fit and bangs his sippy cup on the high chair because his mommy didn't give him exactly what he wanted.

Pogo said...

F**k you, Wisconsin would be a great school fight song.

Michael Haz said...

Eh. Who cares? Seriously, who gives a crap about what Abe Sauer writes?

He's just another (in a long history of) boring trash-mouth writers in Madison who can't string together a simple declarative sentence without using the word "fuck".

So move to Shanghai, Abe. The sooner the better.

Unknown said...

What in the world is this burn out ranting about regarding Vicki McKenna? Are the tinfoil OWS bovines fabulating about her?

Meade said...

Pogo said...
"F**k you, Wisconsin would be a great school fight song."

The Chant aka P vs O
Like other schools, Badger fans perform a call-and-response chant before kickoffs; however, theirs is much more vulgar than many others. The most famous chant is between the upper classmen sections and the lower classmen in Section "O". During Steve Miller Band's Swingtown the song starts with a long "Ooooooh" which is followed a quick "sucks" by surrounding sections, then section "O" responds with a "Fuck You" then all sections reply with an "Eat Shit." Despite attempts by administration to rid the stadium of this chant in order to provide a more family-friendly atmosphere, profanities still abound at certain points during the game.

Pogo said...

The Democrats have become 24 hour Party people.

Every damned decision becomes weighted with meaning. The personal is political extends even to shoes, music, and restaurants.

Tiring.
Like socialism, it leaves one with no free evenings.

Ultimately burns out all but the most radical, who probably need lithium.

Abe's repeated FUs remind me of Howard Hughes in The Aviator when he breaks down and can't stop saying "The way of the future. The way of the future.The way of future...."

Paul Zrimsek said...

See, this is why we let liberals have their own way for so many years. They get so damned cranky when we don't.

garage mahal said...

He does lie quite a bit. See here

You going to the big tea party rally today, where you can join all the other patriots fighting the good fight for the Kochs to pay less taxes? Because, you know, that's FREEDOM. LOL

Danno said...

Abe is an angry old dinosaur from the category Ty"rant"o"sauer"us Libtard me thinks.

Fen said...

Garage: He does lie quite a bit. See here

Link broken.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Is Abe Sauer 16? Cause thats the demographic that tends to use fuck in every other word.

Kit said...

With Abe being an outsider to the goings-on, this helps me be a little better reflective to how my own side is perceived.

That being said, I would add to his list, an f-you to those who couldn't organize better (knowing the tone of things that were likely to happen), or those who couldn't be bothered to vote, or those who now regret their vote.

Or maybe a thank-you is in order for showing us all how ridiculous we can look in our own self righteousness.

Methadras said...

Awesome rant is awesome.

leslyn said...

Now that I've stopped sputtering/laughing into my coffee--thank you, Althouse, for the funniest thing I've read this funny season. Abe is an equal-opportunity offender.

Only remark:

Fuck you, union leaders. You park your giant tricked-out Teamsters big-rigs, the ones with Ohio plates, around the capitol during the protests, then you waddle to the podium and accuse the governor of recruiting out-of-state money and being out of touch with the common working man.

Long haul truckers who routinely go through Ohio buy the plates. It's not their base plate. On your next long driving trip with the family, see how many Ohio plates you can spot on big rigs.

roesch/voltaire said...

Great, reminds me of the nihilistic energy found in the Fugs' Lyrics to Nothing.
Abe, has found lots of nothing in Wisconsin from unions to Walker who he rightly notes: you know down deep you are a patsy half-wit who ran from the disaster of your old county executive position to one in the state where you are now a nationally admired conservative leader. Sorry, pal, but anyone who takes a crank call from a Koch impersonator is not a political mastermind: he's a boob nursing an increasingly large bald spot he hopes others don't see. Abe has found all our bald spots.

Dayum. I hope ol' Abe doesn't move down here, Cajuns and 'Bama fans would probably rub him the wrong way too...
