Well, we know the answer to this question.

Oh... I was going to link to something that, on closer look, just isn't good enough for you. Seriously, you'd have more fun speculating about what the question was.

In ABC News' transcript of Marco Rubio's debate, it says "it's" instead of "its". Why is he so uneducated?

Will Sanders supporters go ballistic when when they find out that parts of Hillary's speech to Goldman Sachs have already been leaked, and they amount to: "(Wink, wink) Don't worry boys, I'm one of you"?

Hmm, Tag is "nothing"

Something Seinfeld said? Did he endorse someone?

The first joke in the New Yorker list of "The 100 Jokes that Shaped Modern Comedy" is about "Nothing."

Oh, sorry. Almost forgot to phrase as a question (thank you Alex). "What is the subject of the first joke in 'The 100 Jokes that Shaped Modern Comedy'?"

“vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane … not to mention sexist” says Bill Clinton in NH explaining why Hillary's numbers have fallen

Althouse commenter gets national attention?

Jim said...

The tag Nothing is chocked full of somethings. From Hillary and Bill to lettuce and on to Obama and Thanksgiving and MLK. Those are just a few, I didn't read back that far. Is there a common thread there, if so I missed it I'm sure. But I enjoyed reading the older posts, especially the 'one who shall not be named'. 'it will only encourage him'

"Althouse commenter gets national attention?"

Althouse commenter:

Paula Jones was quite accustomed to be asked to perform blowjobs, as Bob Bennett learned in pre-trial discovery. She gave five blowjobs to men at a keg party one year before Clinton asked her to "kiss it". - garage mahal

And that's only the blog commenters DEFENDING him. Imagine what the ones attacking him write like!

In ABC News' transcript of Marco Rubio's debate, it says "it's" instead

That's not the only mistake there. It seems like there was only one transcript made. They are all from the Federal News Service

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/02/06/transcript-of-the-feb-6-gop-debate-annotated/

It has Marco Rubio referring to the "Girls Count Act," using the word "dispel" when he probably meant "dispense" and referring to the city where ISIS claims there will a final battle as "Tibet" rather than "Dabiq". [In a previous debate Marco Rubio thought he had first pronounced it like Dubuque (Iowa) and corrected himself.]

It also has Marco Rubio saying "imminent domain" instead of "eminent domain" at one point.

It gives some lines near the end to the wrong person (Trump instead of Kasich)

"I've done it in Ohio" obviously is Kasich. Trump interrupted with one word maybe, and then Kasich continued.

KASICH: appears in the middle of a line, and I guess the macro had TRUMP instead of KASICH and so it appeared on the next line that gave a speaker that wasn't typed.

I also noted that the transcript changes the word "not" to "now" at one point or vice versa.

JCCamp said...

We could probably do something with "imminent domain" and "Donald Trump", but it might end up being more predictive than funny. It would not fit the tag 'nothing' though. My guess for "We all know the answer..." and the answer being "nothing" isn't clever or funny, but it would be something like "What would Bill Clinton find just too ironic or embarrassing to say in public?"

Penny for your thoughts?

SJ said...

The answer, obviously, is 42.

But the actual Question is unknown. And we'll need a planet-sized computer to find, probably needing 10 million years of effort.

future toothless bum said...

If a Penny won't do it I'm going with Obama.

America posits themselves in him. My best answer for him is he floats on Nirvana.

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure dome decree
Where Alph the sacred river ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.

He's the guy. We placed it upon his revealed shoulders. Empty as measureless caverns. Each of us gives this empty entity the thoughts of ourselves and then, with your nickel you get your answer. Yeah, I said that.

Looking it over, this may not be your thought here. Still, notwithstanding English considered, this has some possibly towards what you are thinking about. It should be anyways, for some of us anyways.

the question is why do people hate LA? The answer is Amanda Chantal Bacon's food diary.

Looks like the US backed proxies in Syria are getting their ass kicked and are now fleeing to the Turkish border.

If Althouse writes a post that says "we know the answer to this question" and then there is an inkblot and you cannot read the rest of it and that is the only copy you have, I do not think the commenters can make up what might be under the inkblot if you cannot read it.

Paula Jones was quite accustomed to be asked to perform blowjobs, as Bob Bennett learned in pre-trial discovery. She gave five blowjobs to men at a keg party one year before Clinton asked her to "kiss it".

I would venture to guess he didn't "learn" that from Paula Jones. This is probably what some Arkansas state trooper, or other "witness" said, but it is almost certainly not true, and in repeating it, you are furtehring the Clinton's dirty work.

Actually, it was Paula Jones having her attention called to an American Spectator story in which she was happy with what happened and that Clinton was welcome to see her again and being told basically that this would go into the historical record, that prompted her to sue. She could not get a correction or retraction on that point. I think Bill Clinton put people up to that - he wanted to gte sued, so he would have a more publicly acceptable reason than Whitewater for having a legal defense fund. Paual Jones also was given the impression that the American Spectator had a bigger circulation than it did.

tim in vermont said...

Sammy, I don't think that pointing out that Clinton's defenders smeared his accusers by dragging their sexual history out into the public is a wasted effort.

There are young people that don't know that that's what Hillary and Bill did, but they are catching on. Even garage is sick of it, and he made the comment. Now he calls Bill and Hillary "embarrassments" so I think my work is done.
