Reading the drivel Althouse posts, the idea that she's a law professor is terrifying.

If the auality of her writing and thinking on her blog is indicative of her professional competence, her school ought to be giving the students refunds.

Dave (in MA)

And you just know that when it comes to pulling the lever, the Prof. is going to go Pantsuit. Being a First-whatever outweighs all else. (Normally I would have said "trumps".)

TM remains pretty much a mystery to me, so I ascribe to him all sorts of fine qualities. Althouse, otoh, is Exhibit A for "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt”.. imo.

TomM strikes me as a very bright and wickedly subtle sarcastic guy. Although he's become a lot more blunt the past couple of years mocking the Left. I guess he has been paying college tuition bills -- that tends to focus the mind.

Oh, thank you, JMHanes. :)

Threadkiller: "Hard to believe JOM lost some of its best and brightest to Outhouse's comment section."

Ha! How funny. And, I'm not a best and brightest, but I've been over at Althouse reading comments, and some of them are quite delicious. :) I'm a genuine lurker when I take my lurking abroad. :)

I couldn't go to sleep last night -- was still awake to watch the CBS Morning News, and I just despise those people. Anyway, I have a horrible headache and don't feel like going to yoga, so I'm delicately reading any comments that might be interesting.

Limbaugh is playing an abridged clip of Sippy's meltdown.

It lessens the effect.

Captain Hate

Outhouse's dense posts are like a siren's song to entice intelligent comments to her shipwreck of a blog.

Captain Hate

Did anybody watch Megyn tell dipshit Colbert it's not about her? What next on the "Not About Me" tour? Dr Phil? Ellen? One of those cheesy Telemundo shows?

Threadkiller

Limbaugh is focused on the importance of the content of Sippy's recorded message and pitting it against Christie's position that Obama just isn't that smart.

REading about all the money paid to Clinton from universities & businesses makes me think of former Virginia Gov. McDonnell again. How in the world he is in trouble for ~165,000 of loans & gifts from a guy that got no state money or contracts is beyond me.
It wasn't even the amount of one speech at a university.

I particularly like the "tsk, tsk" comments from the presumed English majors in the Althouse comment section. Moaning about how this (Rubio) isn't the kind of candidate we need now, you know, one who doesn't speak like an east coast blue blood.

Like they have anything to say about it beyond what one primary vote will buy you.

If Iowa is any indication, at least on the Democrat side, they are going to get the candidate that does the best job of paying off the machine.

Bill and Hillary have ripped of MILLIONS.

Anyone know what an Honorary chancellor does?

"Since 2010, Bill Clinton brought in just short of $16.5 million for his role as honorary chancellor of Laureate Education, a for-profit college company. He left the position earlier this year weeks after his wife launched her campaign."


http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2015-07-31/hillary-and-bill-clinton-paid-43-million-in-federal-taxes

Meanwhile at least one of his victims is scheduled to be evicted if she can't come up with rent money.

How many victims do the Clintons have?
How could anyone possibly think of putting these people back in the Wh?

I can see the Eurasian Co-Prosperity Sphere rejecting inclusion in a Whirled Peas regulatory death trap and setting up shop on their own. I can't quite identify economic or demographic rationales for wasting assets on war when they can feed off the corpse for decades.

The short hair is unfortunate. Not that I'd wanna mess with really long hair everyday, but she had some fine locks. And at 45, she's not yet of the age where chicks feel obligated to go short.

Beyonce needs to go away. Her music is atrocious. Her attitude sucks. She is one of the most entitled individuals on the planet and to pull out Malcolm X and the Panthers is the ultimate in oligarch privilege.

Ever since "Mau Mauing the Flak Catchers" the Panthers have been exposed as just another form of Adam Clayton Powell or Al Sharpton. Race hucksters.

Playing on liberal guilt and government. As far as I know they never sent people to college or into well paying professions. It's always been about paying the toll.

Malcolm X was not in the end about paying the toll or even killing whitey. He had an epiphany in Mecca that truly changed him. Elijah Muhammed was a deranged murderous cult leader.

And If Beyonce' seeks to stoke the fires of hatred she needs to be called on it. That phoney baloney LOVE set piece at the was just more leftist propaganda.

To do that with the participation of many of the world's most privileged white people in the stands was pure farce.

Beasts, you mean that age when women cut their hair, gain weight, wear sweatsuits, hate men, and vote for Hillary?

I mean if you are going to make a duck worthy post, go whole hog, so to speak.

Of course Rubio is stupid! He got a loan so that he could buy a "speedboat" worth about 1/3 of what Hilary got for every one of her corporate and collegiate shakedown junkets.

The Pats O line is not great but they should maybe feel a little better about themselves after the beatdown last night.

Romanowski calling Cam "boy" was totally inappropriate.

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/millennials-703013-capitalism-people.html

For the first time since labor leader and presidential candidate Eugene Debs in the early 20th century, Americans are flocking in big numbers to a politician who rejects the efficacy of capitalism and seeks to create a new, notionally fairer, system. Now, as then, the reason to support socialist ideas – some of which were implemented during the New Deal – lies with the palpable failures of capitalism. Polls of millennials show consistently that economic issues, such as jobs and college debt, are their dominant concerns.

Capitalism hasn't failed. Cronyism is ascendant. And all these poor little dipshits voted it in with the JEF.

Dave (in MA)

The Pats are reportedly on the verge of bringing OL coach Dante Scarnecchia out of retirement. The first move they made after the AFC championship loss was to fire the OL coach. With the exception of the 1-15 Rod Rust tenure, Scarnecchia served under 6 different head coaches in over 30 years with the team in various roles, something unheard of in a business where the head coaches like to bring in their own people.

“Let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing.” ~ Rubio

"Rubio, Stephanopoulos noted, is “getting pounded for repeating that speech.”

Again...tell me how fresh the "war on women" meme is.

or "you can keep your doctor, period"...how often was THAT repeated?

or as Caro pointed out - "those are not our values"

NK,

The 17-24 cohort of millenials aren't behaving as BOzobots. There is a definite split in support levels for Fascists between younger and older debt serfs. The electoral cohort isn't worth much but at least they're looking around a bit before playing follow the lemming.

Had Rush on in the car. He thinks that Rubio voters will go to Cruz.

Rush needs to get out more. Rubio has a lot of supporters who like him because he's younf, speaks well. and seems like a NICE conservative.

Those voters will not go to Cuz. They won't go to Christie, either. They will go to the other "nice" guy who looks to them like a vote-getter, and that is Kasich.

I don't like this, but I have seen too many articles today where interviewed New Hampshire voters explain why they are leaning to Kasich.

jimmyk on iPhone

Perhaps someone could ask Hillary if part of the Clinton Foundation's funds could go toward his victims.

Jeff Dobbs

I don't want to dampen the turnout effort - but remember, the vote going on right now is just to make it to the next round. The voting will reset to zero again when the clock strikes midnight on Sunday.

Again, don't let that get you to fall into complacency - Let's vote with a great and reckless abandon to such a degree that the other authors give up trying on future rounds.

James D

Good question, jimmyk.

I suppose it would count as income, but there are so many expenses to write off for the books, I'm not worried about it.

It was frightening to see the final income/expense numbers for 2015. Runnning your own self-publishing business is expensive!

DrJ

Runnning your own self-publishing business is expensive!

I'm sure it is! I wouldn't suggest running a lab-based life sciences company, though.

Miss Marple:
Those voters will not go to Cuz. They won't go to Christie, either. They will go to the other "nice" guy who looks to them like a vote-getter, and that is Kasich.

In the most recent PPP poll, they asked people who their second choice was. For voters who said Rubio was their first choice, their second choice broke down this way:

Cruz 36
Carson 13
Trump 10
Christie 8
Bush 6
Fiorina 6
Kasich 5
Paul 3

And another 13 were Undecided.

That's a national poll. If Rush was (and you are) talking about NH - then, yes, those voters certainly tend to be more moderate and Kasich would likely out perform those numbers.

Beyonce needs to go away. Her music is atrocious. Her attitude sucks.

She's a really good singer who hasn't ever done anything really memorable (really poor when it comes to choosing material). As Etta James made clear, Bey sure isn't any Etta James. And she suffers from what most black Americans her age suffer from - a chaotic view of what collective black history should mean as regards going forward with their own individual lives.

If hrt ever shows backup wondering about what to say to the poor progs who think the right has any control over anything in DC, read this
Lois Lerner used a gov't agency to harrass conservatives. I'm aware of that. As I recall, though, the crux of our conversation was that I took exception to an article you lauded which stated that the real enemy was the liberals who enabled terrorists through lax immigration policies (not the terrorists themselves). And that you believed that my suggestion that those laws can by changed at the ballot box was ineffective, though you didn't express what your solution might be.

Ig;

I was up at Elmendorf - Richardson a couple of years ago shortly after they ran Red Flag Alaska and the F-22's smoked the F-16's and 15's. Not even close.

We simply don't have enough of them to sustain combat of more than a couple of weeks.

The F-35 is the Trabant of American airpower and the program managers should be fired.

If Kasich had not hired Weaver (the way to success is to be like Huntsman and insult the base), I would probably like him better. I don't think the GOP can survive a President who engages in Clinton-like triangulation. And as much as a Cruz-type GOP will pain me, I think we need that party right now.

Dave (in MA)

The Superbowl keeps bouncing between disposable pap where choreography and pyrotechnics outweigh anything musical and more substantial performers who peaked 30+ years ago.

DebinNC

If I were in NH, I'd probably vote for Kasich now just to keep him in the race and depress Jeb's numbers. There's no one running surer to lose in the general than Jeb imo,

Yeah, Rs need to think about what they lose (vs Hillary, if she's the nominee) with each candidate. Just as with Mitt they lost (among other things) the anti-Obamacare argument, with Jeb they lose the "Give us someone new, not named Clinton or Bush" faction, which I suspect is sizable.

Captain Hate

Maybe I've been too rough on Teh Magpie. Last week somebody, probably Tammy, made the point that when she was on Fallon's show that he made the idiotic point that until the first debate he hadn't seen her before. That to me is extremely unprofessional, to be in an industry where you steer away from at least being curious about a highly rated show, if not at least to be able to comment on it with some degree of insight. Either Fallon was lying or he's a bigger dumbass than I previously thought.

Maybe Ailes is encouraging her going on other shows to boost future ratings for her and the entire network.
