3 Scenes from the Obama Rally in Madison.

Meade did all the filming and editing on this one. (All I did was the text.)

Obama rallies are most wonderful. Every-one loves the great and best POTUS. At the WH, there is a red-carpet and people through red-petals. The media will always have our backs.

All that is needed by the POTUS is to destroy, diminish, dismember Romney on 10/16.

Every-thing-else is in place. Voters love him. Media loves him. Money-raisers love him. Muslims in the mid-east love him.

Meade said...

Sorry I can't put up video of my chat with the two Secret Service agents who wanted to talk with me because I "stood out".

They asked me not to post the video to the internet. And so I won't. Because, when you were a nine year-old in 1963 and your teacher asked your class to silently pray after it was announced on the PA that the president had been murdered, and you asked God to receive him into heaven, it is something you just never quite get over. Even fifty years later.

And so you always, always, always comply with any request made of you by the Secret Service.

EARTH TO MEADE:

Campaign events cost taxpayer money. Always have, always will. That's part of the deal. Suck it up, big guy.

(Of course, I wait with bated breath for Althouse to post videos of Meade attending Romney campaign events, wandering around aimlessly and mumbling about money.)

exiledonmainst said...

Good job, Meade, but I'm afraid this time you've been topped. 'Cause nothing beats the vid of the dunderheads who thought it was terribly unfair that Obama couldn't use his teleprompter during the debate.

Palladian said...

Zachary the gay porn blogger coins an excellent, if late, campaign slogan for the Obama campaign: Suck it up!

Palladian said...

And so you always, always, always comply with any request made of you by the Secret Service.

Good advice for Colombian prostitutes!

Roman said...

Nice video, almost sounds like Meade was hitting on Ms Bidar-Sielaff... Just kidding!

NotquiteunBuckley said...

Whomever uses the racist term "costs" instead of the not racist term "investment" ought to consider why some might call them racist.

If they want to persuade and not emote lavishly they ought to consider it that is.

Is my opinion at least on these matters.

AprilApple said...

I agree with Peta on this one.
Elephants are treated horribly by circuses. Does anyone care? Seriously - do the Peta representatives think any of the Obama supporters care about their elephant cause?
I'll bet the Obama people think the elephant costume is for the GOP.

ndspinelli said...

Palladian, Great quip about Colombian prostitutes!

David said...

Sorry, Meade, I can't bear to watch, but thanks for the effort.

CWJ said...

All I did was the text. Well isn't that special.

Joan said...

Nothing new about Obama events being expensive in many ways:

It got extensive coverage in August.

Unsurprisingly, the Romney campaign reimburses locales for the extra costs their events incur.

CWJ said...

I'm not sure, but were those supposed to be bicycle cops in the last segment? If so, they looked like the lamest excuse for authority figures, I've ever seen. If not, never mind.

Sorun said...

Sorry I can't put up video of my chat with the two Secret Service agents who wanted to talk with me because I "stood out".

Lone, white, middle-aged male with a short haircut. You fit a certain profile.

CWJ said...

OMG. I just rewatched the clip. I was too busy watching the first dork trying to move his "ride" over the "rocks" to have read AA's text. These are REAL cops?!?! Seriously? Lord what will they do when someone doesn't respond when they ask them "nicely."

mtrobertsattorney said...

Did anyone catch the video of UW students being asked after Obama's event if it was unfair that he was not allowed to use a teleprompter during the debate? To a person, they all thought he should have been allowd to use a teleprompter.

Yikes! What has happened to UW students? Is this an indication what passes today as a college education?

(Ann, you might have some fun asking UW law students the same question.)

Sorun said...

"I wait with bated breath for Althouse to post videos of Meade attending Romney campaign events..."

Oh, there are taxpayer-supported Romney events in Madison? Where?

Sorun said...

I'm tempted to send money to PETA just so they can afford a larger, more stable sign.

rhhardin said...

I always blend in.

edutcher said...

I thought the elephant was a metaphor.

Silly me.

Also, why didn't those cops just carry the bikes? I would have thought, in that part of the country, they would be familiar with the concept of portage.

PS You always comply with the Secret Service because they're well-armed and usually are better in unarmed combat than you.

(and The Blonde thinks she robbed the cradle)

Penny said...

Unable to watch Meade's video. Don't ask why.

Here's the thing...

It gives me time to 'savor' his still and very sure shot that I see.

Penny said...

This steak, Meade?

Perfectly done.

Penny said...

First off, the "foot soldiers" of Madison are clearly on a mission!

Penny said...

Longggggggggg and orderlyyyyyy and linesssssssss...

Mesmerising!

Penny said...

BLINK!

Dan said...

The elephant was at the Las Vegas rally for Obama. Do the Democrats have it trailing Obama?
Also, does anybody what songs the Obama rally played before the U.W. rally?
In Vegas, they played R&B love songs. Did they do this in Madison?

Penny said...

Might not end well, if you are a Jew, for example.

Penny said...

And I say that with deepest sadness for their past history.

Penny said...

Oh forget that. It's probably just me EXPLODING a personal bias.

Penny said...

Not like those orderly "adult" 18 to 26 year olds can't cross the street.

Penny said...

Ha ha

The worst that can happen is that they get run over on a city street overrun with ... GOLF CARTS!

chickelit said...

Meade said...
Sorry I can't put up video of my chat with the two Secret Service agents who wanted to talk with me because I 'stood out'.

Outstanding, Meade!

chickelit said...

@Penny: Whatcha drinkin' tonight?

I'm buyin'

Penny said...

And in the nick of time, I might add.

;)

Thanks, chicklit.

Penny said...

So tell me, chick?

Looking at Meade's still shot...

Are you most disturbed by the long and orderly lines leading "IN"?

Penny said...

Or more by that elephant who seems to have peed his pocket?

Titus said...

When the video finishes there is a video of an anti Obama rally at Texas A&M-wow really fat and ugly people.

Meade missed his calling. He wants to be the straight Anderson Cooper so bad.

chickelit said...

@Penny: They are all walking so briskly...were they late? What was the rush?

I like elephants. They are gentle creatures with long memories.

Donkeys are mean and ornery

Penny said...

Silly me.

I like all god's creatures.

Penny said...

It's the "editors" I have no faith in.

chickelit said...

Titus has unexpressed bingo wing genes.

That is all

Tits & wings

Tumbler said...

Meade,

Ms. Bidar-Sielaff - who you find so photogenic - is now a single woman if you're interested.

Penny said...

Was interested in her myself, Tumbler.

Althousians, take note.

New TAG at Althouse for Ms. Shiva Bidar-Sielaff, and she isn't a commenter?

Penny said...

Surely, that must mean something?

Something meaningful to our hostess at least.

Penny said...

Cool.

Nice when Althouse is interested in somebody "new" who doesn't comment here.

rick said...

There something about cops on bicycles that strike fear in ..... nobody. The goofy shaped helmets, shorts, spandex. The only things lacking are a Dick Tracy wrist radio and the secret decoder ring.

Titus said...

What the heck is a bingo wing gene Chick?

It sounds kind of kinky.

Penny said...

Cheese and crackers, chick!

"Titus has unexpressed bingo wing genes."

Now you went ahead and reminded me of the two cutest dogs EVER to grace the face of Althouse.

Penny said...

Unless we count that black dog who Meade adopted way back when.

Penny said...

Is that black dog still for rent?

Titus said...

I love it when Pads attacks all other fags on this blog.

He is ruthless towards Zachary.

Diogenes of Sinope said...

Obama is the "Chauncey Gardner" of the Left and they're just starting to understand what they've gotten.

Diogenes of Sinope said...

Obama is the "Chauncey Gardner" of the Left and they're just starting to understand what they've gotten.

Penny said...

Anyway...

At least for now...

Will leave my dreams of the black dog, the brown dog and the blonde dog aside...

Penny said...

What's up with that Shiva?

Penny said...

Bringing the west coast and the east coast to Madison?

chickelit said...

Penny said...
Is that black dog still for rent?

I used to think you were mean and spiteful: link

But instead of lashing out, I decided to trust you instead.

Penny said...

Seems to me she's slippin' a "shiv" in.

And the USUAL Madison crowd will pretend they aren't bleeding.

Penny said...

That's kinda cool...for a change.

Penny said...

Just be sure they don't get anemic, cause then you just might lose them permanantly.

Penny said...

What can I say, chick?

I used to trust nearly everybody...

"All in all".

Penny said...

Now?

Don't ask.

Penny said...

Then I won't have to tell!

Penny said...

Ha ha

See how that works?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

chickelit said...

@Titus: I just meant that if you had a daughter, could or might she grow up to have bingo wings. Do they run in your family? I learned the term from my mom who is 75 years old.

You are forever hating on the looks of Midwestern folks but I wonder if you really hate them in your heart.

Lawyer Mom said...

Excellent, M, on all counts. Keep it up.

Inga said...

Me too Penny, that is up until they betray my trust.

vbspurs said...

"We're following Obama around...Washington DC, Denver...".

Yeah, totally grassroots. No funding from billionaires to keep them protesting, at all.

Cheers,
Victoria

vbspurs said...

I love how Meade has perfected the draw-them-out-by-pretending-to-be-on-their-side tone of voice, employed by cynical leftist media.

Incidentally, very nice tone of voice. Perfect for vlogs with Ann (he taking the Rightie side). MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Penny said...

If only it was once and done, Inga!

lol

Doesn't work that way for us. Does it?

Penny said...

We keep "hoping" for the best.

Penny said...

You do a yeoman's job of defending yourself here, Inga.

But why would you even bother?

Penny said...

Speak your piece, and your peace, and be done with it

exiledonmainst said...

chicklet re: Titus:

"You are forever hating on the looks of Midwestern folks but I wonder if you really hate them in your heart."

Oh, I think he really hates midwesterners (and southerners), although once upon a time he was the prettiest girl in Lodi.

Inga said...

True Penny, seriously why do I bother?

Seeing Red said...

Insty links to a post about PPP saying Wisconsin is in a statistical tie, how can this be?

GM assured us Barry was ahead, didn't he?

Seeing Red said...

PPP's newest Wisconsin poll finds a big debate bump for Mitt Romney in the state. Two weeks ago he trailed Barack Obama by 7 points there, 52-45. Now he's pulled to within two points, with Obama's lead now just 49-47....

Penny said...

Althouse's blog would be poorer without you, Inga.

And without Titus too, exiledonmain.

Penny said...

Cripes.

What the hell is PPP?

Seeing Red said...

LEFTY polling.

exiledonmainst said...

"Insty links to a post about PPP saying Wisconsin is in a statistical tie, how can this be?"

I am laid low with a bad headcold today and so could not go, but a friend of mine went to volunteer at the Whitefish Bay R/R HQ. She said the place was packed - and many people came in to get lawn signs.

The north shore of Milwaukee county is not a notably conservative area.

Penny said...

Know what I hate?

When regular commenters start using capital letters to "ease" their typing LoadEye.

Penny said...



Know who else does that?

The friggin' federal government!

That's WHO.

exiledonmainst said...

Perhaps, Penny. But you and your inane comments would be no great loss.

Seeing Red said...

Emphasis. LOLOLOLOL

Penny said...

I'll just hang on to your "Perhaps, Penny".

Take the rest of that teddybear to bed with you, exiled. ;)

exiledonmainst said...

Take the rest of that teddybear to bed with you, exiled. ;)


10/6/12 9:38 PM

Don't take that fifth of vodka to bed with you, Penny. Might as well kill the bottle.

;)

NotquiteunBuckley said...

You need more she said.

exiledonmainst said...

I wouldn't hang on to "Perhaps, Penny" if I were you.

I'd hang on to your chair as you struggle to get up. You really don't want to fall over and pass out on the floor.

Night,night, Penny.

Inga said...

Penny is one of the special commenters here, she makes you work at figuring out her meaning, kind of like Chip Ahoy. And even NotQuiteUnbuckley.


I really appreciate those three, makes this place kinder and gentler.

CWJ said...

Its the weekend and the drunks appear. PHX yesterday and now Penny tonight. Oh well.

exiledonmainst said...

Inga, you like Penny because she's put in a good word for you. Fair enough. I find her irritating and inane, but was willing to ignore her until she decided to pick a fight with me.

As far as you're concerned, I completely disagree with your politics, but I've come to think we'd get along fine if we actually met each other and confined our conversation to Eastern European recipes and lo-carb diets and fun places to shop in SE Wisconsin. Hell, I have in-laws in Madison who are to the left of Chairman Mao, and I get along with them because we talk about the Badgers, Brewers, Packers and restaurants when I see them.

I'm not nearly as sharp-tongued in person as I am online.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

Dumbfounded.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nIvBI2_hSY

I see more than Breitbart here.

Mr. Breitbart would and has talked about culture; I've not talked nor thought about culture compared to A. Breitbart.

Inga said...

Exiled, I liked Penny from the first time I ever read a comment of hers, I can hardly envision her arguing with anyone.

Yes, I'm sure we would get along. I have conservative relatives and friends here in Waukesha County, where I live. Hell I'm surrounded by conservatives.

exiledonmainst said...

Speaking of fun places to shop, check out Retique in the Third Ward. It's an upscale Goodwill, but Christ, the haul that I made there last weekend was awesome.

A Ralph Lauren cashmere sweater for $20. A red Prada bag for $20. A Coldwater Creek silk blouse for $8.00. I spent $75 and came out with a huge frigging bag of loot.

I'm a size 10. If you're smaller than that, the pickings are even better.

pbAndjFellowRepublican said...

Watching a grown man pussyfoot is painful.

Inga said...

LOL, Romney's face, on SNL.

That's it, He forgot the anniversary, he was distracted!

Inga said...

Thanks for the tip Exiled, I'll check it out, I love second hand shops.

exiledonmainst said...

"Hell I'm surrounded by conservatives."

Hell, I'm in Shorewood, surrounded by liberals.

But I blend in perfectly. Nobody seeing me push my cart at Sendik's would say, "Now there is a rock-ribbed Republican."

Well, I was once a liberal. I guess I didn't sprout horns and a tail when I (slowly, painfully) made the switch.



Titus said...

fyi-I am not from Lodi.

I was born and raised in Waunakee.

tits.

Chatting with the Secret Service.

exiledonmainst said...

The prettiest girl in Waunakee then. But that was a loooong time ago, wasn't it?

Tits.

And brats.

ndspinelli said...

Titus, Didn't you get "stuck in Lodi" once. There's a great bakery in Lodi and right across the street, a great butcher. But alas Titus, no good Supper Clubs.
