Come on, Smedley, talk to me.

Clicking through on the picture and checking the original size on Flickr to see more detail, I'm not so sure now about that guy coming up behind you . . .

Lem said...

Thank God Althouse is not a burning hell fire .. even for those that clearly deserve it.

Koop & Ane Brun - Island Blues

btw I consider it a compliment that I pass the Althouse word verification test.

Can you say the same? or do you lack the guts?

Lem said...

fair warning!

If posting goes down after word verification they are going to use it against her!

Any thing they can use against her they are going to do it!

It is up to us to keep up with the lazy casual posters!

Lem said...

you know who you are ;)

Lem said...

Meade responds!

Always On Time

Just kidding around Meade!

Lem said...

there seems to be a political reversal that allways goes on but now is different?

If there is anything that should be taken as the legitimization of Obama as our president is the most uniquely American thing there is - dissent!

Lem said...

Is Hillary Clinton Secretary of State or the First Lady?

Lem said...

Senators decide not to kill your grandma..

Zwei, drei, vier
One, two, three
Its easy to see
But its not that I don't care so
'Cause I hear it all the time
But they never let you know
On the TV and the radio
She was young her heart was pure
But every night is bright she got
She said sugar is sweet
She come rappin' to the beat
Then I knew that she was hot

She was singin'
Don't turn around, uh-oh
Der Kommissar's in town, uh-oh
You're in his eye
And you'll know why
The more you live
The faster you will die

Alles klar, Herr Kommissar

[Instrumental Interlude]

She said, babe, you know
I miss Jill and Joe
And all my funky friends
But my street understanding
Was just enough to know what she really meant
And I got to thinking while she was talking
That I know she told the story
Of those special places that she goes
When she rides with the others in the subway singin'

Don't turn around, uh-oh
Der Kommissar's in town, uh-oh
And if he talks to you
And you don't know why
You say your life
Is gonna make you die

Alles klar, Herr Kommissar

Well, we meet Jill and Joe
And brother Herr
And the whole cool gang and, oh
They're rappin' here they're rappin' there
But she's climbin' on the wall
It's a clear case, Herr Kommissar
'Cause all the children know
They're all slidin' down into the valley
They're all slipping on the same snow

Hear the children
Don't turn around, uh-oh
Der Kommissar's in town, uh-oh
He's got the power
And you're so weak
And you're frustration
Will not let you speak
La, la, la, la, la, la

Don't turn around, uh-oh
Der Kommissar's in town, uh-oh
And if he talks to you
Then you'll know why
The more you live
The faster you will die

Don't turn around, uh-oh
Der Kommissar's in town, uh-oh
Don't turn around, uh-oh
Der Kommissar's in town, uh-oh
Don't turn around, uh oh
Der Kommissar's in town, uh oh

Lem said...

If it was completely wrong for Sarah Palin to say "death panels," why did the Senate scuttle the provision she was talking about?

Give me time
To realise my crime
Let me love and steal
I have danced inside your eyes
How can I be real

Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry

Precious kisses
Words that burn me
Lovers never ask you why
In my heart the fires burning
Choose my colour
Find a star
Precious people always tell me
Thats a step
A step too far

Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry
Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry

Words are few
I have spoken
I could waste a thousand years
Wrapped in sorrow words are token
Come inside and catch my tears
Youve been talking but believe me
If its true you do not know
This boy loves without a reason
Im prepared to let you go
If its love you want from me
Then take it away
Everything is not what you see
Its over today

Lem said...

Hey.. wait a minute.

Is it fair to ask if Obama thinks that his legitimization as president consist on his election as president of the United States or the passage of one of his legislation?

Is Obama telling us that every legislation he puts forward is a referendum on his legitimacy?

pretty sneaky sis!

Lem said...

It's so "cute... really sweet" when Obama gets the facts all wrong.

You Catch Me Off Guard.

Lem said...

"[Dick Cheney] said Bush was shackled by the public reaction and the criticism he took."

Bush went soft.

BTW this video may be related in some weird way to Vic's "the dog lover" wellcome back to the NFL.

Is Althouse is falling down on the job ;)

Lem said...

If my figures are correct I think we have some people here that may object very strongly to Vic sneaking back in so quickly.

Lem said...

Its not republican nor conservative
it's not liberal nor democrat..
its not libertarian or/nor a denial of God.

Its the shorts that are near and hated!

is the Ralph Kramden Barack Obama’s fault.

Lem said...

I feel very close to you Althouse and Meade.

I cant thank you enough for that.

Lem said...

I think we should play something uplifting - "one for the road" as they now infamously used to say. (can you see anybody saying that on mass media)

Into the great wide open.

Lem said...

Ok now that I'm drunk..

As many of you may know the Sodini story got me into trouble here but I think I should mention this, it came to me while seaching waht to play tonight.

I think I should mention b4 it recedes in to our collective subscuncious that maybe the idea for Sodini.. (again please.. bear with me, my ears are bigger than the presidents :)

I think I know where Sodini got the idea for shutting down the lights!!

Dancing In The Dark.

Please just listen to the words and how they may have been twisted by a sic sic person.

Slow Joe said...


or some ice cream


Lem said...

There is a possibility that this guy probably saw that video - that idea that you could just find a beautiful girl meat for you - many, many times.

It follows on the the idea of unrealistic expectations that we may inadvertently be giving some people.

(the verific word was kiesse - oooh)

Lem said...


My guess is I should call you SLOW.. first and then Joe.

Lem said...

If you can know of a better reason why he may have done that .. please tell .. I think there is no safer venue.

Lem said...

It may be too much of a gamble for Althouse to front page this idea abot Sodini (I'm late for one) but I think I rather be a bold back bencher and not the photo shop front page fake &*n%@ ...

I think I should take that back.

Lem said...

lets face it Althouse has a weak in the knees thing for a well done photoshop.

it would be amusing is the photoshopper were a relation.

Please. (this is where i apologize to chip for actually doing a nice job and not being his fault that he gets fronted.

Which of course it snot.

(my word was ammutess)

Lem said...

I think our post should be rated according to the veryfic word.

calin.. weak .. Hey I had luck!

Lem said...

new word


Lem said...

this thing will never say music!

thse word music is the one madeup.

Lem said...

como un verzo sin firmar.


Lem said...

Era Rubia como el trigo

Lem said...

I don't think it's beneficial to me to come here and "sing" my wits out and so far as I have been able to surmise no female birds listening to any of it.

maybe if i did this on a pay site I get some feedback. (not that I have not been there done that)

the thing of it is that I have been in person to speed dates, S&M bar/clubs and the online blind date thing.

Lately I'm talking to an a friend from India and It may be about a radical change of thought change of mind.. and a ticket to India and I think i may get it there.

I thinking about it.

Lem said...

I say and I come back on my own will because I nned it like a drug.

I need to come here and read RH and maybe amba and maybe someone like amaba thats available.


(dont tell crack about this song ;)

Lem said...

Why cant women like amba come here and be available?

I'm not asking for too much!

(look im even passing the test)


Lem said...

here is another sample of a romantic over the top song


the words of this song are very very good .. on point bla bla about how romance can get stupid.

Lem said...

Its a some like health care ..

for me its not Canada ..

Its may be India.. at a not so small finders fee, middle man insurance.

he told me yoking - its not my fault americans are unfamiliar.

its true.

Lem said...

the reason why health care is so costly is because at the end of life it is a government employee there asking the questions does this person know anybody - forget family.. as far as he knows there is no family!

Lem said...

This Indian fellow is telling me that we are paying for the idea of the 60s.. the idea that there are no consequence.

He says the reason why health care is dead is because we have become acustumed to the lies we tell ourselves.

in no small measure we are entitled to everything at no personal cost.. by personal he means children born out of wedlock and children playing house despite the record failure.

Lem said...

the idea (adult living) was up until the economy went down the toilet that we could have "adult living" for seniors

a fancy way of saying waht we always known to be the awful american secret.

most americans dont want grandma anywhere close!

Lem said...

why a mcmansion w/o even granma?

and then pretend we give a dam about a stranger!

Lem said...

and dont contradict me.. I talking about our clients.

if people with the f*n money dont want grandma anywhere ner them what should we expect of regular folk?

Lem said...

is it possible that if more families started taking care of their own we would have less need for Obama care?

honestly ask yourself that question!

Bissage said...

(1) A lovely portrait in a lovely setting.

Those shrubs need pruning but there's no use fretting.

There’s a nice green skirt where the gathers ripple.

Look a little higher, there’s an Althouse smile.

(2) Per request, and as promised (not really), we proudly (not at all) present . . . I can haz kidney stone!

(3) wv = aglend. Aglend you a hand later but I can't right now.

Lem said...

the idea that you can just pump kids out as if they were .. (i cant think of anything funny)

If there is a f-ing conversation we should be having!

Ann Althouse said...

Another Saturday night with Lem!

Ann Althouse said...

I mean Friday.

Ann Althouse said...

It's Saturday now.

Come on, everybody, make it a great Saturday.

Ann Althouse said...

Wake up!

Ann Althouse said...

Come oooonnnnnn! Wake up!

Farmers' Market!

Lem said...

Another Saturday night with Lem!

oH no.. i hope i didnt wake you.

I have so much freedom here .. i should say say you give us so much freedom.

Lem said...

BTW - i hope the word verification will have a end soon..

it gets in the way althouse!

Bissage said...

Oops. Sorry. I think I must have interrupted something.

wv = donteran. As in, donteran when other people are talking!

Ann Althouse said...

No, Bissage, I loved your post... and your kidney stones.

Lem said...

Althouse posted 4 comments .. are you telling me she had to word verify?

this is why obama care is doom to fail!

Its not the Gandy model!

Lem said...

This Indian guru opened my eyes!

Lem said...

"The reason why obama care strikes fear in the hearts of Americans is because they know waht they have.. and they know not everybody can have that at no cost .. like Obama says.

This Indian guy is going to ge me married so I listen to him of course.


Michael Hasenstab said...

Lem - try the decaf or the alcohol-free, which ever you'd like.

Althouse - Thanks for the lovely photo. I am reminded of the pointer sisters, in a positive way.

WV = sperexc Sounds like a company listed on NASDAQ.

Lem said...

Lem - try the decaf or the alcohol-free, which ever you'd like.

Sounds goo, but I have no idea waht you ere talking about.

Lem said...

sorry - it sounds good!


Bissage said...

Thanks, Professor.

I was concerned that (1) was disrespectful, as risqué, and that (2) was selfish; so I'm feeling somewhat relieved now.

Thanks again.

John Doe, Esq. said...

Come on, people: this is a nipple picture. If it was anyone else, Althouse would be pointing that out.

What I want to know, Meade,is whether that is why you choice this one. Was there one without nipples, too?

And where is Chip Ahoy when you need him? I'm sure you could have something ooze out of those nipples.

Paddy O. said...

"I loved your post... and your kidney stones."

Oops, sorry... sorry to interrupt everyone, back to... whatever you were doing.

Michael Hasenstab said...

John Doe said: Come on, people: this is a nipple picture. If it was anyone else, Althouse would be pointing that out.

Did you overlook this, posted above you comment? I am reminded of the pointer sisters, in a positive way.

WV = nipplage

dbp said...

Is Althouse being slightly cruel by posting this picture?

I wouldn't hazard a guess as to the exact fraction, but a decent slice of Althouse's readership had mixed feelings about her getting hitched. Thrilled at her re-joining the club but wishing it was them and not Meade.

Now, as if to rub salt into the wounds--she posts an especially pulchritudinous picture of herself...

On second thought, I don't think it is on purpose: A happy woman is a pretty woman.

It does remind me of these lines from "Body Heat"

Meade: Maybe you shouldn't dress like that.
Althouse: This is a blouse and a skirt. I don't know what you're talking about.
Meade: You shouldn't wear that body.

wv palypit: The kind of dump you have to live in after paying palimony.

Ger said...

I was surprised by how many comments it took before anyone mentioned the highbeams.

Gee AA going all Feministing on us? Somebody alert Jessica!!

OldGrouchy Doug Wright said...

Wonder if "Smedleys" is associated in any way with Smedley Darlington Butler, Major General, USMC, awarded the MoH twice?

Good picture of AA in all her married glory!
