"A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)! "

Tweets Trump about the artist's rendering of the man who Stormy Daniels says threatened her years ago.



Look, if she were just making up a face, why would she make him absurdly, cartoonishly good looking? It seems like a schoolgirl's dream of the boy I'd like to meet. That makes it inherently implausible. Why would the handsomest guy in the world take on the work of being a random thug?And why would a rich man send out a really cute guy to scare a woman? Shouldn't he look more thuggish? But see, that's evidence that this is the real thing: You wouldn't make this up. Would you?

ADDED: Here at Meadhouse, we think we have a match:

"Stormy for President 2020"

All of her cabinet choices will come the workers and "clientele" of New York Dolls Gentlemen's Club.

Maybe Tom Brady owed Trump a favor.

My daughter said some are claiming it looks like Tom Brady. HAH! Brady never looked that good.

Beauty = clicks

Some say it looks like Stormy's former boyfriend.

Willem Dafoe

Damn! He looks like my son, with straight hair.

Sally327 said...

I think he looks thuggish. And not all that attractive.

Is there some rule that only ugly looking men are bullying creeps? I think not.

Good-looking? I know there is no accounting for taste, but to me he looks like the star of Danny Does Denver.

Inga said...

My son’s mouth is slightly smaller though.

Rob said...

Stormy's lawyer said the sketch artist found Stormy very credible. In the face of that corroboration, who could possibly doubt poor Stormy?

FullMoon said...

Yep, posted a link yesterday to a photo comparing drawing to her former husband. Amazingly similar.
Oh, and apparently she was charged with domestic abuse for smacking him a couple of times

“Stormy Daniels’ Sketch Sure Looks Like Her Husband”

Rick said...

Suspect

Maybe when she tried to give a generic description her subconscious used a well known figure.

Michael K said...

The fable continues. What does the left do if Trump and Pompeo settle the Korean thing successfully ? Demand war?

Limited blogger said...

Like the drawings at the boardwalk.

Dude will want a copy of it.

Inga said...

My son is safe, he’s 6’4”, this guy’s a shorty.

Michael K said...

It does look like her husband.

Virgil Hilts said...

Teddy Flood from Westworld? But Teddy is too nice to act as a thug for hire (of course as a robot he could be reprogrammed, just like when Bernard becomes an assassin).

Bay Area Guy said...

It's 7 years too late. If there was a threat made to Stormy back in 2011, she's gotta make a police report THEN and THERE, and make the sketch, THEN and THERE.

Waiting this long, suggests strongly that she's exaggerating or making it up, because she's caught up in the whirlwind against Trump, sorry.

Not excusing threats and taking them seriously, but you cannot wait 7 years to report a threat.

Mike Sylwester said...

Powerline Blog matches the drawing to various celebrities.

Well, except I look a little less guilty and drug-addled.

Meade said...

Also less nonexistent.

Amadeus 48 said...

It looks like David Hogg.

robother said...

Adrian Grenier has a side gig enforcing NDAs. Disturbing,even if it makes for an interesting sub-plot in Entourage. Is there nothing that sleaze ball agent Ari won't get him involved with?

Isaiah Abrams said...

I couldn't accurately describe anyone I met once seven years ago, even under circumstances that might leave an impression. It's not even a recovered memory. Trump is correct.

Ann Althouse said...

"Is there some rule that only ugly looking men are bullying creeps? I think not."

If you were going to pay a guy to scare people, you should hire a scary looking guy. If you wanted to lure someone into a trap, you might want someone good looking, but this was the job of just making the person feel threatened.

MayBee said...

My favorite police sketch story is from years ago, when the manager of a fast food restaurant who had faked a robbery sat there with the artist and actually described himself.

Virgil Hilts said...

Amadeus 48 said.. It looks like David Hogg.
Can you imagine David Hogg as an enforcer. First, you know he wouldn't be carrying a weapon of any kind, and second that he can't do anything that would get him in trouble (he needs to get into a college). All he could realistically do is threaten to organize a boycott so that no one would watch her porn videos any more on pornhub.

So that's where Grant Goodeve of "Eight is Enough" ended up.

Looks a lot like Michael Avenatti as pictured before the head shave.

William said...

Meade looks a little like the drawing. So does Stormy's ex, but Meade doesn't look like the ex. The ex, at least in the Daily Mail picture, looks like the kind of guy who's married to a porn star.

Drago said...

Kevin: "His name? Haven Monahan"

AKA "T-Bone"

Paging Corey Booker....

Left Bank of the Charles said...

If the premise of this post is that Stormy drew the sketch herself, why did she sign it Lois? She didn’t sketch the handsome man, Professor Althouse, someone else did. If you try to go to Lois Gibson’s website, you get a message that she has exceeded her bandwidth limits.

Almaron Dickinson said...

I thought he looks like Kato Kaelin.

Rick said...

That's what "the artist" in the following refers to.

DanTheMan said...

Almost everybody knows the sketch of the Unabomber... guy in a hoodie with curly hair and shades.

It turns out to be a sketch not of the Unabomber (it looks nothing like him), but of the first sketch artist the witness had met years earlier.

A sketch of somebody she says she met briefly years earlier?

No thanks.

MikeR said...

Nah - the hair doesn't match. Could be a wig?

Michael K said...

Why are porn actresses always "stars?"

My experience is quite limited but I have seen few stars.

Jenna Jamison is one but she is a Republican.

Jameson supported Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2008 United States presidential election,[165][166] but Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 United States presidential election, stating: "I'm very looking forward to a Republican being back in office. When you're rich, you want a Republican in office."[167] In late November 2015, Jenna made multiple tweets showing support for Donald Trump as the next president of the United States.

Char Char Binks said...

It's definitely Willem Dafoe, but time-traveling from the nineties.

David Begley said...

Just watch the Peter Strzok from the FBI show up in Madison to question Meade. Might as well.

BADuBois said...

Yeah, Willem Dafoe, who desperately needs a haircut.

walter said...

"why would she make him absurdly, cartoonishly good looking?"
THAT..but also the far from threatening expression...looks he wants to cuddle.
Maybe the artist watches soaps..or..

Chuck said...

I missed the part about what relevant, first-hand knowledge it is, that Donald Trump possesses, to call it a "con job," and to assert that the man as alleged by Stormy Daniels doesn't exist.

Last I heard, the White House was claiming that there was never any relationship between Stormy Daniels and Trump. Trump hasn't even shown the manhood to say one way or another whether that part is true.

Who even believes Trump anymore? Do his supporters believe him?!? Do they really? Think that what Trump says is true? Or do they think that, sure, Trump fucked this broad, and he tried to pay her to keep quiet and execute an NDA, and it is all because Trump's enemies want to bring him down and prevent him from doing important things as President of the United States?

I remember not so long ago what Althouse's judgment was, concerning the shithole comments kerfuffle. Althouse referred to it as a "smear." She wrote: "Because even assuming he said it, which maybe he didn’t, I think it was taken out of context and portrayed as racist in a way that was viciously out of proportion. There was an intense effort to destroy him."

It didn't matter, to Althouse, if Trump was being truthful or not. The main thing was that it was somehow being used unfairly, even if Trump really did say it.

I now presume that no matter how much Trump lies about Stormy Daniels, Althouse will not view Trump unfavorably if it is "taken out of context and portrayed... in a way that [is] viciously out of proportion," with Althouse as the judge of "proportion."

Trump over 50% approval.

Nothing happening. At all.

Chuck - when it comes to banging a porn star 12 years ago - no one should really care. He did/ - he didn't. He might be a pig. OMG! Men can be pigs. Even whole presidents. News at 11.

I never said about Clinton that it was just about sex and that it didn't matter. I was happy to see him get impeached. He committed perjury.

And now, there may have been a handful of federal crimes in association with the timing and nature of this payment.

What, about all of that isn't logically consistent and consistent with the law? Don't pull that thing about Clinton on me. I never defended Clinton.

The traitor will never be happy until democrats are back in control spying on republicans.

Nonapod said...

The problems with creating a sketch of a face from someone's years old memory should be obvious. But just in case it isn't, here's the two big ones:

1) Memory is notoriously unreliable and gets more unreliable with time. Don't believe me? Just ask two different people who observed the same event 7 years ago to describe it in detail to the best of their ability. Odds are extremely high that there will be significant discrepancies.

2) Sketches themselves are imperfect approximations. This sketch of a vaguely handsome caucasian guy seems has already been compared to about a dozen well known celebrities, media personalities, and politicians.

It brings to mind the infamous unibomber sketch that turned out to not be so accurate after all. It turns out it was a composite of a lot of other descriptions, and it actually ended up looking much more like one of the original sketch artists than Ted Kaczynski.

If you were Stormy Davis and you had to make up a fake face who "Threatened you" - what would you do.

You could make him a stereotypical "thug" - but then you know everyone will think he's a fake. So, you go the opposite direction.

Plus, its hard to describe someone who's "average looking" - another reason he's handsome.

The traitor thinks Obama spying on Trump is consistent with the law. Sees no problem with doing everything in his power to put treasonous shitheads back in power.

The traitor will never say a bad thing about democrats when it matters. Only as cover 12 years later in his efforts to put democrats back in power.

The only people that think I am a terrorist are enemies of freedom and people who think democrats spying on political opponents is OK.

Why would Ted Bundy kill and fuck all those women? Maybe he just likes his job.

I worked for newspapers for 20+ years. Read the NYT / LA / WP / AP wires faithfully. Followed 100+ blogs, but now I don't read newspapers and get my news from Drudge and about a dozen blogs. Don't watch TV.

The fact that this is a thing taken seriously shows how deranged the industry I used to work for has become.

Is there a law that was broken? paying a porn star?

Chuck - Clinton lied about sex "with that women" & doing the actual dirty IN THE OVAL OFFICE DURING HIS PRESIDENCY. Clinton also raped Juanita Broderick. We bring up Clinton only because the gravity of his crimes should have landed him in jail. A check to a porn star over something that allegedly happened 12 years ago is a federal crime?

Like I said, I've been stuck at home, for the last 3 days and had/have CNN and MSNBC on.

I was stuck how someone who just watched these networks, wouldn't just be ill-informed, they'd be bat-shit crazy!

If all you knew was MSNBC/CNN/PBS/ABC/NBC/CBS - you'd think Trump was just about to impeached, or arrested, or put in a lunatic Asylum, or blow up the world and that the Democrats are on the verge of a massive mid-term blow-out.


rcocean said...

No one who supports Trump is allowed on these networks. And if they do have someone who's Pro-trump they're debated, shouted-down, and used as target practice.

What a bubble.

What relevant, first-hand knowledge do you possess to know it's not a con job?

What relevant, first-hand knowledge do you possess that Stormy was threatened?

What relevant, first-hand knowledge do you possess that Trump and Stormy had a sexual encounter?

You don't, and yet you comment on here.

It's funny, for weeks, CNN and various media organizations have been almost begging for Trump to tweet about the Stormy "matter". Pointing out how, just as you have, that he hasn't denied or admitted an affair.

Today he tweets about it and they freak out for him calling it a con job.

Meanwhile, CNN is putting pictures of the handsome stranger (who looks like Stormy's lawyer with hair!) on the screen with Trump's words "con job" right underneath it. They don't even realize they are reinforcing his message. That's why he said con job. That's why he used those words. He doesn't care if it's a con job or not, he wants the public to think of it as a con job.

Brian said...

If the GOP retains control of Congress this November, expect the narrative to immediately declare it was due to the Russians stealing the election, and it will be the end of democracy itself.

If the Democrats gain control, the narrative will now be about how the grown-ups are in charge again, and Trump will need to stop tweeting and change his priorities, or else.

Many of you seem to think that lefties are lefties because they live in a bubble, only watch CNN, and never hear the other side.

Inga, Ritmo, etc. here should disabuse you of that notion. There are many very eloquent conservatives on this board, who routinely explain exactly what's wrong with the leftist arguments.

Dowe their certainty in leftist dogma ever shift or waver even one iota? Do they ever, ever change their mind?

No. And the people you think only get their news from CNN wouldn't either even if you told them the truth. You can't reason someone out of a position that wasn't arrived at by reason. It's a cult of virtue signaling, and if they haven't figured it out when the Left has gone as utterly odd the rails as they are, they are a lost cause. Getting them to watch something besides CNN won't change a single one of their Stalinist little minds.

Nonapod said...

Does their certainty in leftist dogma ever shift or waver even one iota? Do they ever, ever change their mind?

It's also a hard truth that the vast majority of people don't really change their political opinions after a certain age. In fact this goes far beyond just political thinking. People don't really change much at all as they age, they just become more cautious and maybe a bit less impulsive. Becoming more cautious and less impulsive can be mistaken for wisdom, but real wisdom is much more than just that.

No, unfortunately most people seem to have a belief system that is hard coded and immutable by their mid twenties. It's to the point that you can slowly and deliberately walk them through a thought process (usually in a socratic way) get them to concede and agree with you on certain points, but at some point you'll hit a wall where they refuse to accept something that's clearly true. With liberals and progressives it'll often be some fundamental aspect of human nature that they'll disagree with you on (if you even get that far and it hasn't descended into insults).

It's a bummer.

Thank you! I’ve been saying this for years everytime someone here says we liberals reside in a bubble, lol. I watch Fox often! I read Breitbart, Conservative Treehouse, Gateway Pundit, etc. lol. I’ve even listened to Rush Limbaugh...gag.

Have you folks ever changed your minds? Not that I’ve observed, in all my years commenting here. Of course I don’t try to convince you of anything, you have the right to believe as you see fit. I have that right too and the right to express my opinion, which I do...often.

Michael K said...

It's also a hard truth that the vast majority of people don't really change their political opinions after a certain age.

I voted for Nixon in 1960 and for Johnson in 1964 because I thought Goldwater was so inept. That was the only vote I regret.

I voted for Joe Shell on 1962 against Nixon.

Joe Shell was a great guy.

In 2000 I worked as a volunteer for McCain and almost voted for Gore as I thought he was sane and more reasonable than Clinton.

That was a mistaken judgement but I think Gore went crazy after 2000.

Trump’s telling the truth Chuck. There was no “relationship” just a fuck and goodbye. When the accuser has lied so much about it how can you ascertain which version to believe? Stormy is too spacy.

Michael K said...

Inga, pardon me if I don't believe you.

I used to read and comment at leftist blogs like Washington Monthly and HuffPo.

At Wash Monthly, they banned me in 2004 because I did not support single payer. I think you have looked at, if not read my posts on my own blog about health care reform. That was not enough for the others at Wash Monthly. They would attack me like Ritmo does and go to my blog for nasty allusions to my kids and stuff like that.

Kevin Drum, who I followed to Wash Monthly from his own blog, Calpundit, then went on to Mother Jones but I was blocked there as well. The left does not want to hear any opinions but their own and I think you fall into that category.

You even went to Patterico to quote Patrick Frey's angry attacks on me because he has bad TDS and does not want anyone to disagree with him there. I read and posted there for years and he has lost some commenters but picked up leftist trolls since the election.

I just don't think you are capable of ;learning and your attacks on buwaya are a sign of your intolerance.

I've asked you several times how you can attack him for not being a US citizen while you support illegal immigration and, I assume illegal voting.

FIDO said...

So, Ms. Althouse and anyone who is tangentially involved in witness testimony...

How accurate are memories of someone seen once supposedly seven years ago? I can remember a lot of school chums from HS...but I met them EVERY DAY.

I can remember coworkers from seven years ago, but again that 'every day' thing.

But what about that women in the Best Western I stayed at and had three days of conversation with? Sort of round with dishwater hair.

Okay, how about that super hot girl in Gainesville I met...I can IMAGINE a hot girl, but I can't for the life of me attest that the image is similar at all to the actual girl...but she IS cute.

This is so stupid that only a partisan Democrat would believe it.

Qwinn's comment wasn't a compliment, Inga.

Not sure why you're thanking him/her.

More female privilege from Althouse. Guess what, pretty boys can be real bad asses, they can be bums, filthy grease monkeys, etc. It does look like her husband.

The real story here is that's a great sketch. It has a remarkable 3-dimentional quality, almost sculptural. Maybe you monochromatic-deficients can't see that.

Inga said...

“Inga, pardon me if I don't believe you.”

Michael, what don’t you believe? That I read the publications I named? I never comment, I have my hands full commenting here.

“I just don't think you are capable of ;learning...”

Are your liberal daughters and liberal son capable of learning? Yes. I’m sure they are. Well then why aren’t they conservatives like thier dad? I’m quite sure you’ve tried to “teach” them your political ideology for years now. What went wrong?

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

Oh right - the Rush Limbaugh gag routine. Lefties only tune into conservative stuff to spy.
Not to actually attempt to gain insight or change a mind.

Trumpit said...

Imagine in the young Althouse had met the young Meade. Maybe the sex would have been better, but, at least, the mature Alhouse met the mature Meade, so they can amuse and keep each other company now.

Doc Mike makes a good point. The lefty websites love to censor uncomfortable opinions and ban people with wrongthink. The lefty media does it as well, they always interrupt and ask hard questions of 'Wingers and serve up champagne and caviar for their progressive cousins. These are all contributing factors resulting in democrats actively helping to elect Trump.

The claim is from 2011, four years before the escalator ride.

Inga said...

Thank you! I’ve been saying this for years everytime someone here says we liberals reside in a bubble, lol. I watch Fox often! I read Breitbart, Conservative Treehouse, Gateway Pundit, etc. lol. I’ve even listened to Rush Limbaugh...gag.

And you cheer on every attempt to shut them down and every assault your political opponents.

You are a stalinist. You only pay attention to your enemies so you can persecute them and try to remove them from political discourse. Just like your little Red Guard hero Hogg.

Birkel said...

But the claim was made in 2018 about events alleged to have happened seven years ago about an alleged affair from 12 years ago.

Achilles said...

Inga said...

“Many of you seem to think that lefties are lefties because they live in a bubble, only watch CNN, and never hear the other side."

You do not seem to understand. Typical.

You live in a bubble because you cannot honestly describe your opponents positions. It is not enough to list off a bunch of sources of information you clearly do not read or understand.

We understand exactly where you are coming from. We are exposed incessantly to the leftist media. We can with detail and comprehension describe what the democrats are saying they are doing and what they are actually doing.

You don't have any clue who or what we actually are. You have to make up your own caricatures mostly to adapt to reality which constantly slaps you in the face.

I better be seeing some charges by next week to justify abusing attorney-client privilege.

And if Mueller DOES make a Trump case (not some stupid side case), than I will apologize to him. I do NOT expect to have to make that apology, however.

“I better be seeing some charges by next week to justify abusing attorney-client privilege.”

What about charging McCabe with perjury? Think it’s going to happen?

I wouldn’t hold my breath on either one or both.

This is a woman earns her living by faking orgasms (Oooooo, you're the best baby, Aaaaa), being paid to have sex with lots of people (lots of clients want sex with a "star" and will pay good money), and seems to be pissed off she did not get enough cash for her maybe yes maybe no liaison with a rich guy a long time ago. She's an actress and says she was threatened.

Do people in this industry never get threatened or beaten?

Are they in the business of truth telling and believably.

A Confidence Artist (Con Artist for short) is someone who makes you believe in your fantasies enough that you will willingly hand over your money. Con Artist is appropriate here for those who are buying into this bullshit. They are the ones being conned by a professional sex worker.

William Burroughs once said "Never believe a whore that says she does not want money. The Hell she doesn't. She wants More Money. MUCH more."

Voila.

Nonapod said, Memory is notoriously unreliable and gets more unreliable with time. Don't believe me? Just ask two different people who observed the same event 7 years ago to describe it in detail to the best of their ability. Odds are extremely high that there will be significant discrepancies.

You don't need to wait 7 years. Try just one day. I did this once, and this was a long time ago, so I don't remember the details, but I do remember my astonishment: my feeling of I can't believe this.

I asked about five different people about an event that they had all witnessed the previous day, and that I had also seen, and not only did no one's memory match mine, but they were each different from one another. This was not a significant event. It didn't matter terribly. So it wouldn't have been something people had talked over in between, and changed their 'memories' to match.

-- Wait. The threat happened *seven years ago*? All the news I've read made it sound like it was a response to very recent Cohen/Trump antics.

Abuse of power by a game show host doesn't convey quite the same level of risk to the Republic does it? Personally I'm shocked to find they're pursuing it anyway. Shocked.

The Cracker Emcee Classic said...

How is it possible that the Dems don't realize how they're clowning themselves? Stormy Daniels? Trump must be paying her but not for what the Left thinks.

Michael K said...

The police refer to it as "Lies like an eyewitness."

Eyewitness testimony has put more innocent men in prison that Stormy's number of blowjobs.

And that's a lot.

FIDO said...

Nah. I think that McCabe will be the Fall Guy. The necessary sacrifice so that the Democrats don't lose 100% credibility. Comey will get a Celebrity Pass.

I think it is better chance of that happening than Trump being impeached.

“Stormy Daniels’ Sketch Sure Looks Like Her Husband”

Or perhaps one of her, er, co-stars. While an absurdly handsome man might make an implausible thug, I would think it would be pretty easy for one to get a job performing in porn flicks, even hetero porn. I mean, all those guys don't look like Ron Jeremy, do they?

Earnest Prole said...

Or perhaps one of her, er, co-stars.

From the linked article:

"That man would be Glendon Crain, Daniels’ husband. Crain, also known as Brendon Miller, is a drummer who has also worked in the adult film industry."

You have to agree the photo at the link is pretty damn similar.

Michael K said...

I’m quite sure you’ve tried to “teach” them your political ideology for years now. What went wrong?

Inga, they grew up with me being neutral about politics. I did not inflict it on my kids and my life was about very different things.

Two of them are lawyers, which answers some of that. Law schools are notorious for leftist indoctrination.

One daughter is a Bernie voter but I sent her the Jordan Peterson book, wondering if she would ever read it. She called me two days after it arrived to tell me how much she loved it.

As for closed minded, years ago when we were on a trip to England together, I finished reading Stephen Pinker's book, "The Blank Slate." It is about how most behavior is genetic and Stephen Jay Gould was wrong about everything being about conditioning.

She had gone to UCLA and got a degree in Anthropology and was a Gould devotee. She told me she would read it if I read Gould's "The Mismeasure of Man." That is the bible of the behaviorists and I had read it. A copy was in my library.

She still refused to read the Pinker book. That was 20 years ago and I think she is more open minded now.

She is in the art world and that reenforces the leftist urge. Her boss is a world famous artist who sells paintings for millions.

Her one brother kind of resents that her mother and I still sort of support her even though she is 36.

He and his wife are conservative and have pretty much made their own way.

All the kids are different. I did not get active in politics, except local politics, until after 2001.

Bay Area Guy said...

Regarding the alleged threat to Stormy:

(CNN) Adult film star Stormy Daniels said in a Sunday interview that seven years ago she was threatened by a man when she was trying to sell her story about her alleged affair with Donald Trump.

During her first on-air interview detailing her alleged relationship with Trump, Daniels told CBS' "60 Minutes" that she was approached in a Las Vegas parking lot while she was with her daughter in 2011.


Yes, it is a current sketch of a 7-year recollection of the alleged perp.

Matthew Sablan said...

Is the sketch aged or how he looked 7 years ago?

Inga said...

“Inga, they grew up with me being neutral about politics. I did not inflict it on my kids and my life was about very different things.”

Well Michael, do me a favor, don’t “inflict it” on me. Express yourself, have at it, have fun, but don’t tell me I’m “incapable of learning” when I don’t agree with your views.

Michael said...

Inga
"Have you folks ever changed your minds?"

I would guess that most conservative commenters here were at one time liberals who came to see the hypocrisy of the left in everything from the apologies for communism, sympathies for sweet ideas over actual revealed terror, the hugging close of failed educational policies, the doubling down on the horrendous effects of welfare on the black family and the rest of the long list of power grabs clothed in sickening language of concern.
So, most of us here have believed what you think to be true and virtuous but found it wanting, wrong. So we generally know how you feel and think on virtually every topic of politics or social policy. Whereas you know very little about us and have never changed your mind about what you have been told is a hateful ideology

"We write to refer the following individuals for investigation of potential violation(s) of federal statutes," states the letter obtained by this reporter. "In doing so, we are especially mindful of the dissimilar degrees of zealousness that has marked the investigations into Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, respectively. Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately."

Exactly. I was a liberal up until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. It took a good 6 years or so to move from left to right but I got there - by reading and reexamining once-cherished beliefs. It's not an easy process.

Inga said...

“Whereas you know very little about us and have never changed your mind about what you have been told is a hateful ideology.”

I’ve been here since 2011. I’ve lived in one of the most conservative counties in Wisconsin for most of my adult life, I have conservative relatives and friends and acquaintances. I know more about you than you think. My son in law is a darling, I adore him. He’s a conservative, but very respectful, funny, a wonderful guy, treats my daughter like a queen. His family is conservative also, when we get together we do talk politics, it’s never ever become uncomfortable. We’ve had many many discussions over the years. Liberals aren’t isolated, we live among you, lol. “What I’ve been told”... just who is telling me these things? That’s a condescending notion.

Freeman Hunt said...

I'm not sure if many of our resident, lefty, cut-outs even believe half the nonsense they post here. Like Ritmo they just enjoy derailing threads. Cookie does come through from time to time so I read his comments but the rest? Why bother? Its like engaging with poo flinging monkeys. Times too short.

Birches said...

Once someone compared him to Tom Brady I can't unsee it. It's him!

Again, you don't get it. Knowing people who hold an opinion is different from holding that opinion and then recognizing it as wrong. You have not read or thought deeply in conservative literature whereas most conservatives have read a great deal of liberal thought. Big and important difference.

Brian said...

The crime sketch artist signed it?

It's on CNN every 10 minutes. I would have signed it to. I noticed that she signed it right next to the face. Can't even cut it out by zooming in or anything. She's no dummy.

Michael, I guess your liberal adult children just don’t “get it” either, I’m in good company.

Michael K said...

"don’t tell me I’m “incapable of learning” when I don’t agree with your views."

OK. I'll just say joke #23, like the jokes in prison.

Inga, let's just take it as a given that your leftist idea are not going to change.

I'm not trying to change them. I may occasionally point out that they make no sense but I would much rather exchange thoughts with Buwaya or Achilles or some of the other commenters. You keep interjecting nonsense.

At least you are not as bad as Ritmo who is just a poo throwing monkey.

ARM drops in with a non sequitur. He's pretty harmless.

There are couple of others that post some nonsense once in a while like "Once written..." or snark.

Inga said...

“Inga, let's just take it as a given that your leftist idea are not going to change.”

Absolutely right! Of course they’re not. I’m not here to change myself, or you folks for that matter. I’m here to express my opinion in a place that needs opposing opinions expressed.

Inga said...

As for the liberal commenters here, if you folks wouldn’t immediately attack and get aggressive and act like you’re insulted that we dare comment, there would be far less poo flinging. As you’ve found out, liberals aren’t always pacifists.

Now let’s have a group hug...

Michael K said...

Some if my adult children are lefties and that's OK with me. I don't try to "convert" them.

We have other things to talk about. This blog is mostly about politics. There are other blogs they I read and post that are about history or airplanes or guns.

I don't particularly want your opinion about politics just as I am not interested in some of my children's opinions about politics.

My life does not revolve around politics, mine or others. I am much more interested in history, for example.

Right now I am reading about the origins of World War I.

And about Genetics. I am trying to work my way through Lewin's Genes XII.

I am doing a series of posts about ancient DNA and evolution.

You need more interests, Inga.


Michael said...

My adult children are Republican voting liberals. They find the progressive fashions Ill fitting, humorous. My youngest is in college, a right winger who is appalled by the fascist progs at his northeastern liberal arts college. A true believer in free speech, no safe spaces and contempt for those who try and stifle debate. A true hard ass.

Inga said...

“I don't particularly want your opinion about politics just as I am not interested in some of my children's opinions about politics.”

Oh I’m well aware of that! LOL. But nevertheless you’ll get it. And I mean that in the best way possible. Remember these comments sections are a forum of sorts. You don’t really want only opinions that align with yours, do you? Wouldn’t that be boring?

Inga said...

On politics, yes. This is only one blog I read. Try Greg Cochran's blog, for example.

Much more interesting. Genetics is a slog. But I am trying to keep up. I no longer have my students to stimulate me.

I am also trying to review my Calculus. You need more interests.

Inga said...

“On politics, yes. This is only one blog I read. Try Greg Cochran's blog, for example.”

But Michael, I like it here! I’m not going to some blog where I don’t know anyone, I’m too old for that. I’m comfortable with you lovely folks. 💕

Bay Area Guy said...

I grew up in NorCal and met precisely 1 live Republican by age 18. We were all Dems by default. But by age 18, I recognized that most Leftwing views were hysterical crap. So, while I was liberal as an ignorant kid, the real world at age 18 made me a capitalist conservative.

Over the years though, I've softened on a handful of issues, most notably gay rights. I am willing to compromise there. For example, I think women - particularly hot Lesbians - should be allowed to marry. But not men.

Inga said...

Michael, while I’m tickled that you think I need more interests, I have plenty, thanks all the same. I don’t simply chat on Althouse all day without doing something simultaneously. Im a voracious reader. I bake, I cook, I sew, I knit, I paint and draw, I’m never without my pens and sketchbook. I make beautiful journals that people pay good money for. I just sent off ten drawings to my daughter who is stationed at Camp Pendleton. She requested them to frame for her new apartment.

Michael said...

Inga
I would recommend the book" Factfullness; Ten Things we're wrong about the world and why things are better than you think". There is a short quiz at the beginning of the book about the status of the world, a quiz failed by most of the attendees at DAVOS who do not do as well as monkeys. The authors are liberal Scandinavian.

FIDO said...

The Marist poll of of 827 registered voters, taken April 10 through April 13, has a 3.9 percent margin of error. It found that voters are less willing to support than oppose a congressional candidate promising to impeach President Donald Trump.

Some 47 percent said they definitely would vote against a candidate who wants to impeach the president, compared with 42 percent who definitely would vote for that candidate.

Even 30 percent of Democrats said they would vote against a pro-impeachment candidate or were unsure.

But Lanza (a political scientist) argued that most Americans recognize that impeachment is and extreme remedy for serious breaches- not a political ploy to be argued with lightly.

"If Democrats go to the polls and impeachment is a litmus test, Democrats will not win back control of Congress...They will suffer historic defeats."

The striking likeness to her ex is a real give away- in trying to conjure up a face, she came up with one she knew well and all without even knowing it. Really, think about it- if you were trying make up face to describe, you would be mostly forced to recount features you were familiar with in others. If you are really clever, you combine the features of multiple people you know, but if you aren't that clever, you will overdo it with someone of the right age, gender, ethnicity, and familiarity- in other words, the ex!
