You Are All Scott Walker’s Bitches Now

Posted by That Other Mike on 08/03/2011

Ann Althouse, pictured at home. Not pictured: her ever present red wine.

Shorter Outhouse, “The leader of Senate Democrats hiding out in Illinois is seeking a face-to-face meeting with Gov. Scott Walker and the Senate GOP leader.”:

Being the minority party in a state legislature means you have to just bend over and take it when the Governor wants to fuck you hard in the ass, because that’s democracy!

P.S: Above principle only applies when it’s Democrats versus a Republican.
P.P.S. but I would never say that, because I’m so nonpartisan.

Why does anyone at all, anywhere, still read the Outhouse? Ok, I get it with her hardcore little band of Republican gropers groupies – she feeds their need to be seen as reasonable and sane members of the body politic, rather than as the trolls, sycophants and jesus-fellators they actually are; Ann’s professorship1 lends them a faux air of academic respectability. Hell, even that poor schlub she married, Meade, has a chance of getting some of that sweet Althouse booty2. But anyone else? Why would any person with even a semblance of sanity deliberately read her blog and think it made sense?

There’s some weapons grade stupid in there, quite aside from the premise that the Wisconsin Democrats should simply submit to the will of Darth Walker because they happen to be the majority party; she concern trolls the State Senators because one of them is old and one of them is pregnant. Apparently, in Althouse country, that means they’re hapless victims of something or other, casually drawn in by the cruel something of fate. Or something. Frankly, it’s hard to imagine what Ann actually means to achieve with this post, other than being a GOP water carrier of the scummiest order.

Situation normal, in other words.

Once again, for a less insane more measured response, please consult the excellent LGM post on it. Picture credit to Mock, Paper, Scissors, which also has a pretty decent post on it via the link.


1 Whose idea was that, though? She has tenure? Fucking hell, Western civilisation is doomed. Or at least, a portion of its lawyers will come out of it being even stupider and more venal than they might have otherwise for listening to her.
2 Ewwwwwwwww and so on. I actually made myself feel a little sick just then. Wait a sec, I might need to hurl. Deep breaths. No, I’m OK. Phew, close one.
