At the Teabag Café...


... or do you want to call it the Coffee Teahouse? Well, you can say whatever you want in the comments. This is just a picture from the pro-Walker singalong at the Capitol today. This man with the pink posters is protesting the singalong. The signs say: "Teabag anthem/I want to be a singer to give freedom the finger" and "Teabag anthem/I am woman hear me roar/Cast me choked upon the floor." He looks quite serious, don't you think?

Tea Party

I get it: Singer rhymes with Finger. Give that man a contract.

Charlie said...

OK, this is just plain weird!


Maguro said...

Kinda looks like a down on his luck Johnny Carson.

edutcher said...

The Coffee Teahouse?

I like that.

Or Coffeehouse of the August (well, June...) Moon.

Hmmm, Coffeehouse of the June Moon.

It sings.

pbAndj said...


That's the problem for the cons.

The libs weren't bothered at all. Their leaders were, in fact, very gracious to Mr. Bla....

If the libs had acted badly they'd be looking like fools.

Thank you, Ann.

Jason said...

Its amazing how stupid some people are.

The thing is...when you think you have seen it all, somebody will be worse tomorrow.

pauldar said...

Well know I know what happened to the Mental Hospital patients that closed up here several years ago. They all moved to WI

pbAndj said...


So, in the con world it's dignified (Althouse's word) to call the Chief Justice a total bitch, and it's dignified to threaten to destroy her.

But, it's a sign of some sort of noteworthy lib transgression when the lib singalong leaders go out of their way to graciously great Mr. Bla...., and some guy stands (apparently silently) w/ signs that say "teabag."

I thought that cons were opposed to (never mind going out of their way to hype/fabricate for their own benefit) the "poor me, victim" card.

What happened?

bagoh20 said...

Law school should include some exposure to humor, and it should be required of those seeking work in the judicial branch. Like the judge back a few years ago with the penis pump under his desk. Now that shit is funny.

But, "Mom, he touched me!"

My God, the pathitcosity of it.

edutcher said...

We all lose our tempers, but only Lefties are supposed to be forgiven for it. Prosser shouldn't have said it, but a woman a head taller shouldn't have tried to assault him, either.

And it looks like the Lefties are the ones doing the destroying - or trying to.

Of course, PB&J operates on the assumption that the Capitol rotunda is Lefty territory, reserved for their singalongs only. Kinda like a growing number of SCOTUS slots.

As to the rest of his rant, PB&J is short a couple of verbs.

At the very least.

bagoh20 said...

Voted out of the Govenorship.
Voted out of control of the legislature.
Lost the vote on Prosser.
Lost the budget fight.
Lost the union hammer.

The people seem well aware of who the victims are.

bagoh20 said...

I think I meant "patheticosity" but whose to say what is right or wrong at the edge of wordification.

Chip Ahoy said...

My British friends are fond of Father Ted's "Down with this sort of thing. "

I'm tempted to rewrite the signs to "my arms are very tired" but it's just not fun anymore.

bagoh20 said...

Chip I would suggest the signs be changed to "This space available for rent."

North Dallas Thirty said...

So, in the con world it's dignified (Althouse's word) to call the Chief Justice a total bitch, and it's dignified to threaten to destroy her.

The funny part is when you consider how libs like PB&J support and endorse death threats made by Bradley and Obama supporters against Republicans.

Or the signs and calls to murder Scott Walker being endorsed and supported by Bradley and Obama supporters.

Funny how PB&J supports and endorses all of those, isn't it? Funny how Bradley can endorse and support these things and never be called on it, isn't it?

The reason PB&J and its leftist ilk are screaming and crying now is because they're nothing more than bratty children who are being told "no" for the first time by grownups.

AlphaLiberal said...

Wow. OK. Nice signs. One person's signs.

Hey, for all of your foreigners out there telling us Cheeseheads whats going on in Wisconsin, why don't you check out this video reminding us all of David Prosser's long record as a hotheaded bully.

This is not the first public controversy involving David Prosser being belligerently hostile. Don't know if he's attacked other people before. If so, I hope they come forward.

North Dallas Thirty said...

Hey, for all of your foreigners out there telling us Cheeseheads whats going on in Wisconsin, why don't you check out this video reminding us all of David Prosser's long record as a hotheaded bully.

And here's a reminder of what One Wisconsin Now and other Obama Party organizations and Bradley supporters considered perfectly normal and acceptable statements.

Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes
will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain
to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it
will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit
that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for
more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.

WE want to make this perfectly clear. Because of your actions today and in
the past couple of weeks I and the group of people that are working with me
have decided that we've had enough. We feel that you and the people that
support the dictator have to die. We have tried many other ways of dealing
with your corruption but you have taken things too far and we will not stand
for it any longer. So, this is how it's going to happen: I as well as many
others know where you and your family live, it's a matter of public records.
We have all planned to assult you by arriving at your house and putting a
nice little bullet in your head. However, we decided that we wouldn't leave
it there. We also have decided that this may not be enough to send the
message to you since you are so "high" on Koch and have decided that you are
now going to single handedly make this a dictatorship instead of a
demorcratic process. So we have also built several bombs that we have placed
in various locations around the areas in which we know that you frequent.
This includes, your house, your car, the state capitol, and well I won't
tell you all of them because that's just no fun. Since we know that you are
not smart enough to figure out why this is happening to you we have decided
to make it perfectly clear to you. If you and your goonies feel that it's
necessary to strip the rights of 300,000 people and ruin their lives, making
them unable to feed, clothe, and provide the necessities to their families
and themselves then We Will "get rid of" (in which I mean kill) you. Please
understand that this does not include the heroic Rep. Senator that risked
everything to go aganist what you and your goonies wanted him to do. We feel
that it's worth our lives to do this, because we would be saving the lives
of 300,000 people. Please make your peace with God as soon as possible and
say goodbye to your loved ones we will not wait any longer. YOU WILL DIE!!!!

So let's see; the same Obama Party, One Wisconsin Now, Ann Bradley, and Shirley Abrahamson screaming about and condemning violence themselves support and endorse bombing public buildings, killing innocent civilians, and murdering Republicans and their families.

North Dallas Thirty said...

Hey, for all of your foreigners out there telling us Cheeseheads whats going on in Wisconsin, why don't you check out this video reminding us all of David Prosser's long record as a hotheaded bully.

Oh, and by the way, AlphaLiberal, you might want to remind your friends at One Wisconsin Now, an organization which you acknowledge is explicitly partisan, anti-Republican, and only exists to support Obama Party candidates and causes, that they are violating Federal law concerning their tax-exempt status.

And isn't it hilarious that an organization like One Wisconsin Now, which screams for and demands higher taxes on others, refuses to pay its own?

Why is that, AlphaLiberal? Why won't One Wisconsin Now pay its fair share of taxes? Why won't it disclose its donor lists like it demands others do?

Because it's a hypocrite organization, run by violent hatemongering hypocrites and liars like Shirley Abrahamson and Ann Bradley.

"This is not the first public controversy involving David Prosser being belligerently hostile. Don't know if he's attacked other people before. If so, I hope they come forward."

Don't worry, the ambulance chasing liberal victimologists are desperately trying to find ways to get Kloppenberg on the bench, and to get their way with the budget.

They make up bullshit stories, all at a perfectly planned time right before August.

Smells beyond fishy for me.

Chip S. said...

This is not the first public controversy involving David Prosser being belligerently hostile. Don't know if he's attacked other people before. If so, I hope they come forward.

Admittedly, I speak as a stranger to your strange land, but wasn't there recently some sort of extended opportunity for people to talk all about David Prosser's fitness for the SC? And, correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't that extended period of discussion conclude with some sort of opportunity for people to register their views of his fitness in confidential, written form?

I could be way off base here, not being a Cheesehead and all, but that's kind of my vague recollection.

North Dallas Thirty said...

Also, we should remember this is not the first time that Ann Bradley has been publicly called out for and exposed as telling lies about and slandering David Prosser.

Bradley’s email led another justice to criticize her for airing the issue to a wider audience. Justice Patience Roggensack wrote to Bradley, stating

“You were trying to make David look bad in the eyes of others, as a person who uses language that we all find offensive – and I include David in that ‘we,’  . . .Do you think that copying others on your e-mail increased the collegiality of the court or decreased it?

You are a very active participant in the dysfunctional way we carry-on. (As am I.) You often goad other justices by pushing and pushing in conference in a way that is simply rude and completely nonproductive. That is what happened when David lost his cool. He is not a man who attacks others without provocation. Until you realize that you are an active part of the provocation, not much will change. Perhaps a third party will help you realize that you are not part of the solution; you are part of the problem.”

But of course, AlphaLiberal will defend his little violent criminal Bradley, whose support of bombing public buildings and murdering Republican officials makes it clear she's not fit to serve on the Court in the first place.

North Dallas Thirty said...

Also, we should note how the Dane County Sheriff is really nothing more than an Abrahamson partisan. If he were truly an ethical individual, he would resign from the case, given that he's endorsed and supported one of the individuals involved.

edutcher said...

Well, Alpha's back after hiding out during Weinergate. Yeah, that worked out so well after he told us how The Weiner had been hacked. PB&J must have seen he was getting nowhere and turned over the conn.

Lessee now, we have a guy allegedly trying to put a chokehold on a woman 7 inches taller, as opposed to said woman coming at him with her fists raised. But Alpha's sure it's true because he's used naughty language before.

And, of course, when the Lefties pull something, it's always an isolated incident to Alpha, like our friend with the pink sign, but, if there's an allegation from Kos or firedoglake, usually false, it applies instantly to all those racist, sexist, homophobic teabaggers.

foxtrot said...

And could one blame Prosser for wanting to strangle some of the colleagues he has to work with?

Dave Greene said...

Please join the Sloping Foreheads facebook group and help us mock David Carr. And please send this link to any Jayhawks or Show Me staters you know. Anyone who ever lived in Kansas or Missouri.

AST said...

More like the stupid liberal scrotum bar. That's the level of reasoned debate we have come to expect from the left, because they can't explain why unionized public employees should be guaranteed a better deal than the people paying the freight, even if it means higher taxes. How that adds up to unfair treatment eludes me.

Joanna said...

This is not the first public controversy involving David Prosser being belligerently hostile.

And if anyone is familiar with belligerent hostility, it's Alpha.

Peter Hoh said...

Found another reason I want to live in Seattle, the pasta lunch guy.

He blogs pasta and meat, too.

The meat blog might be TMI for some.

richard mcenroe said...

We're mocking David Carr? I'll take a crack at it...

Chip S. said...

Peter, That was a good attempt to change the subject, but once a certain trope gets established in a thread it's hard to let it go. So when I read this passage on that guy's meat blog, I still thought of Bradley v. Prosser:

Coppa, in Italian, is the name for the nape of the neck – and it is one of my absolute favorite parts of the pig (or women, for that matter).

For those scoring at home, in homes not in the vicinity of Madison, you may not be aware that the Capitol is on a hill at the center of an isthmus between the two largest of a five lake chain (Mendota and Monona.) The narrow isthmus is a transportation constraint, and the city bus routes tend to overlap on the Capitol Square. A lot of mentally ill people ride the buses in Madison, and because so many of the routes have tranfer points on the square - well, let's just say it is a target rich environment for nut cases.

Dana Loesch has a quick piece at Big Government, pretty much mocking the Alpha Liberals and Bill Lueders of the world, who seem to exist in a truthless bubble where only pro-Union views can be "facts".

Fine. I'll judge, since I am prepared to be judged.

See, that quote is one of the most misunderstood. It doens't mean you should never judge others.

Fred4Pres said...

Is the protestor trying to represent a "tea bag." And I might look serious if mine were bright pinkish purple.

Lincolntf said...

Gotta love the look of the "Teabag" guy. Old, miserable and with a face that looks like it's been punched hundreds of times. Perfect spokesman for the scumbag Unions and the corrupted Judges in their pockets.

NYTNewYorker said...

Fen said,"Fine. I'll judge, since I am prepared to be judged."

My exact thought when I read that and something that we need much, much more of.

Look at where not judging has gotten us. A nut in women's underwear allowed to fly in public.

And society says, OK!

"Hey, for all of your foreigners out there telling us Cheeseheads whats going on in Wisconsin, why don't you check out this video reminding us all of David Prosser's long record as a hotheaded bully."

What bullshit! That was an attack ad. I want my 41 seconds back. You should be ashamed of flogging such rank propaganda. "Reminding us of his long record"... nothing about the actual record. You're supposed to know or believe there's such a thing, and this is an ad telling us to think about what we're presumed to already know. You're a partisan with no interest in fairness.

NYTNewYorker said...

Agree Fen but It's hard for me to believe that while staring at their shoelaces none are thinking of the long game.

Ann Althouse said...

Could somebody check whether Bill Lueders and Alpha are the same person?

Curious George said...

"You're a partisan with no interest in fairness."

Ya think? And to be concise, it's not a "video reminding us all of David Prosser's long record as a hotheaded bully.". It's a video of a long list of opinions regarding one instance.

Beta Rube said...

How long can it take to "investigate" the incident that sparked all this.

It seems to have taken place in a room full of impeccable witnesses (Supremes).

Let's hear what they have to say.

41 seconds is a small price to pay for a lesson learned. Assuming you've learned your lesson.

Big Mike said...

This pathetic figure must be Benjamin Button, because he looks very old, but he clearly hasn't grown up yet.

As to the Wisconsin supreme court, it seems clear that if Abrahamson cannot get her colleagues on the bench to act with more collegiality, she needs to resign. And if Prosser goes, then it seems perfectly clear that Bradley needs to go too.

pbAndj said...

That video does help to move the ball forward.

I've had trouble visualizing a person moving towards another person w/ a raised fist. Thankfully Prosser has acted this out.

Unfortunately I still can't fully understand this situation.

The picture would have been complete If the folks Prosser was moving toward (w/ fist up) had responded by putting him in a chokehold. I guess those folks weren't dignified enough to put him in a chokehold. Hopefully they were dignified enough to call him a bitch, and to threaten to destroy him.

pbAndj said...

And, I thought the music was interesting.

Lincolntf said...

pbAndj, when the full story comes out, and your oft-repeated false version of events is utterly debunked, will you acknowledge that you were 100% wrong, deliberately misleading people and generally acting like a snot-nosed sixth grader? Of course not, you'll blame the Koch's.
Wise up. Sad, stupid and mendacious is now way to go through life.

Fen said...

pbAndj said...


You really can't see that it's interesting to have a video of Prosser doing to others what his anonymous supporters say Bradley did to him.

This video perfectly captures the anonymous accusation against Bradley (except for two details, 1) Prosser only has one fist raised, and 2) Prosser is the perp).

Why didn't those folks being approached by raised-fist-Prosser end up w/ their hands on his neck?

Also, why didn't the folks standing in front of screaming-arm-flailing-Prosser end up w/ their hands on his neck?

Pogo said...

Game, set and match, PB&J.

Well, not really, but I'm sure you think so.

Context, context, context, sonny Jim.

Y'all left that out. It's like the pictures of Bush caught mid-word where he looks like a total buffoon but was likely saying "Americans" or something.

That is, the ad was a shit, made to look like shinola.

Lincolntf said...

Gee, what a puzzler...
It's almost like I'm saying that two different events, involving diffrent people and occuring under different circumstances, didn't play out exactly like one another.

So, when it is proven that Bradley was the instigator, will you admit that your childish red-herring game was just your dishonest way of defending the indefensible? Or will you turtle like a little pansy and pretend you were doing nothing of the sort? Either way, watching you wriggle is always fun. I'm looking forward to it.

The most relevant bit of information in that video attacking Prosser is this:

Uploaded by OneWisconsinNow on Mar 27, 2011

The WISC election was held on April 5, 2011. The voters watched that stupid video, then elected Prosser. Tough shit if you don't like that.

Oh, that's right--I forgot Feingold's Axiom: It's not over until we win.

At least they didnt sing We Shall Overcome like the cry babies did in Green Bay. Whities singing that song because they are going to have to pay part of their way made me want to puke. The guy holding the sign looks solemn and out of shape like most of the Wisconsinites i have seen depicted in these pages. Seriously people you should hit the slantboard or take a few laps or push away from the table. You are not an attractive bunch generally speaking.

BTW, that other restaurant (the Bizarre one) is fairly close to my Seattle house. They have furniture suspended, upside down, from the ceiling.

But, I prefer the Blue Star, around the corner.

Did the song contain "nanny nanny boo boo" as well? Is it asking too much for a cogent, age appropriate criticism or discussion?

I guess so.

Jeez, I am getting tired of all the drama coming out of Wisconsin.

Although I have feeling it is limited to the Madison area.

dbp said...

The image makes me think of what economists or other experts do: On one hand x on the other hand y. Literally, he has one sign in each hand and his posture, including the signs is much like the scales of justice. Except in this case, both hands contain essentially the same message. They are of equal height, so that part makes sense. He could also have had one sign saying something good about the TEA party and one bad and then held one side higher to show which is which. The "good" side would of course be written sarcastically so that the good side is really bad too.
