Henry said it best.

Marc Puckett said...

It'll be amusing to see how X Y and Z can argue with each other about a point tangential to the original post.

Bob Ellison said...

It would make a great anti-Hillary protest sign.

André Weil guest-blogging?

John Cage couldn't have said it better.

Ceci n'est pas un post.

I'm just waiting for n.n. to come tie this post to abortion.

Sebastian said...

Or as Mick would say: the entire contents of O's birth certificate.

It's an opening

Whats the one issue you feel is the greatest threat to the wellbeing of our nation. IOW What should be priority 1 for the candidates? Can we get a poll?

I'll start, DEBT/DEFICITS

The test of a philosopher is what he can say about nothing.

Bruce Hayden said...

You know that someone is a hard core Althousian if they come here, and then admit it by commenting.

Ann Althouse said...

LOL

Le néant and nothing but. Sartre could have saved himself a lot of trouble.

Meade said...

My work here is done.

Jeff Gee said...

Whoa. I think I just went through the mirror.

Laslo Spatula said...

The "I'm not creating a tag for this" tag might be appropriate.

I am Laslo.

Glad I didn't.

David Begley said...

This is Althouse's version of rope-a-dope.

Needless words omitted.

eric said...

Why am I having so much fun reading these comments?

eric said...

Here is my guess.

Please was petting the dog and Althouse was bringing him his morning coffee. The doorbell rang and it startled Meade. He fell off the piano bench he was sitting on, and grabbed hold of Althouse, pantsing her and causing her to spill the coffee all over the keyboard, which then created this comments section.

eric said...

Please=Meade

Meade said...

"Please=Meade"

Meade, meade me, oh yeah, like I meade you...

Meeeea said...

Clickbait.

It worked.

The Idea of Order in Madison, WI.

readering said...

As good a place as any to remind of Althouse's sarcastic skepticism about early reporting on source of DNC hacks. From Reuters:

"U.S. intelligence officials told top congressional leaders a year ago that Russian hackers were attacking the Democratic Party, three sources familiar with the matter said on Thursday, but the lawmakers were unable to tell the targets about the hacking because the information was so secret."

Unknown said...

readering, too bad the targets had no competency or will to defend themselves without being warned.

Brian said...

The article is unethical because the recognized principle among reporter-degenerates is that it's only ethical to out gays when the outed individual may be conservative or Republican. Hypocrisy and all that.
