Meade, you started this by attacking me for liking Bill Maher and for noting his show last week was relevant to the discussion on the forum. What is wrong with that? You don’t like Bill Maher, and I do. You think he’s racist and sexist, although you have not given one good example from the show last week. Are you trying to intimidate me, what is your goal here? Second time now I've asked.

Every time you misquote someone and twist their words into something they don’t mean or intend, you are showing your own bias and prejudice (besides pissing them off and being totally annoying). The most current example you gave:

Meade wrote:Yeah. Watch it, Mr. Bogart - city2countrygal (who apparently moved 2 the country to get away from, ahem, the, you know, wink wink, urban blight of the city) just might sneak up and put her amazing magic bullshit detector on you.

Did I ever say I moved to the country to escape urban blight? Anything similar to that, ever? I would never, and if you knew anything about me, that thought would not cross your mind. Second time now I’ve asked you to find a quote I’ve said, and you can’t come up with anything except your own misinterpretations.

I’m confident in my own thought processes. What I have a difficult time with though, is following any of your logic. Even when I ask you to explain, you can’t. You just turn it back around on me. So how long do you want to play this game?

What logic?

It's all just petulance and wind.

OK, I get it now. Meade’s just dropping ass in my face after I post something he dislikes. Just as long as I’m not the only one in the room who smells it.

Are you sure you didn't mean "flatulence?"

C'mon Marvell... this guy made it into The New York Times! A brilliant law professor who graduated first in her class from NYU and is a tenured professor at the University of Wisconsin started dating this dolt after he posted on her blog! You don't find that fascinating??? The dude refers to kindergarten teachers as "anti-taxpayer union thugs" and he's banging a woman who probably has 50 IQ points on him!

Meade's a bore, I agree. But the story is fascinating. What's up with Althouse is the real mystery. He's like her trained monkey? She has psychological hangups that cause her to be attracted to men she can easily manipulate? I'd buy that, but it's not like she's looking for a free lunch. Even if he has the proportions of a porn star, no intellectual woman with an ounce of self-respect would flop around in the mud with an imbecile like Meade.

Sociologists will be studying the Meadehouse for decades to come, mark my words. Hell, psychologists, anthropologists, bacteriologists and epidemiologists will be studying the Meadehouse.

He's like a meteorite containing a fossilized organism. He changes everything!

Hmmm, sounds a little Gingrichy to me. Maybe that’s why Meade went off on me after I posted my very honest opinion of Newt.

Thanks for the info, pjbogart. It's so easy to put a face with a name these days.

The whole “Princess” thing really turned my stomach. Almost as much as Newt does.

I found the comments on the Huff Post extremely enlightening.
Just to rub it in a little.

Well C2CG you seem to be the only one who is willing to discuss this, or even acknowledge the fact.

I agree nonwhites probably don't find either the GOP primary or TDPF relatable. But in reality both of them are relatable aren't they? The winner of the GOP primary may be our next President; how is that not relatable?

As far as TDPF, we have actual decision makers that participate here from time to time (and Stu Levitan's television program "Access City Hall" takes questions exclusively from TDPF). I think these decision makers would appreciate a non-white perspective.

And Forons, protest all you want but you do not have a non-white perspective.

This forum is, and needs to be, relatable.

Someone's going to be stalking the Meadhouse for decades, that's for sure.

Why, for lobbing vicious at vicious people? I know you think that politics is some sort of joke, but real lives are being seriously impacted by the Meadehouse's ilk and their relentless attacks on government employees. I know a guy who may lose his house because he and his (lazy, government worker) wife took enough in pay cuts and increased costs to essentially eat up all their expendable income. He took a part time job and looks like he hasn't slept in months but now his wife is pregnant with their second child, which they did not plan, and he just doesn't see how they can keep up, especially if his wife needs to take time off work to care for the newborn. That's a real person, bdog, not some hypothetical cleverness pasted on an internet messageboard.

And yeah, I think Meade owns that guy's pain.

Sincerely curious: Where do you turn to get your "non-white perspective," bdog?

What is a "non-white perspective?" What are the criteria for determining whether a perspective is non-white or not? Is it an either/or thing, or is there a continuum of non-whiteness? If someone who is deemed non-white in the real world posts something on this board, does that automatically represent a non-white perspective regardless of the content? What if the same post comes from someone whose real-world status (white or non-white) is unknown?

And who gets to decide all this?

I'm fed up with this trying to lump the Isthmus forum in with the GOP on the basis of too much whiteness.

First off, the Isthmus forum is not a national political party with senators and representatives who have the power to make social policy.

Second, the Isthmus has not had its own presidential candidate using language that is so specifically offensive black voters understand it immediately and wouldn't vote for that candidate under any circumstances. (Don't waste time pretending to ask what I'm talking about. If you don't know by now, no one can help you.)

The Isthmus, on the other hand, is a small weekly newspaper in a small midwestern city and has very little effect on national politics. If we're too white here, the whole city and the whole state and the whole upper midwest are probably too white too. We can wish it was different, but apologizing for it over and over isn't going to change much. And the demographics will take care of themselves over time, believe me (or visit a Madison grade school).

This is another totally fake argument dreamed up to distract discussion away from real news and real current events, including the fact the Republican Party has not appealed to minority voters in recent elections.
