Wow. Ann Althouse's husband is a teabagger.


Who could have guessed?

Looks like Mrs. Winebox also decided to toe the 'It didn't happen, which is why I'm also going to argue that they deserved it because they were asking for it' oh-so-internally-consistent line.

I didn't argue that Ann's argument is invalid because it's Ann who made it (there are plenty of non-lushes amongst the right who have advanced the same, internally inconsistent argument or who are part of the Teabagging crowd), but I acknowledge that this might not matter much to someone who's more interested in declaring victory than actually engaging in discussion or commenting on the inconsistency of a particular argument or movement. As for my position about the tea-party protesters and their treatment of others, I'm quite comfortable with readers evaluating it on its own merit, and think the contrast between that and your "I won, you got spanked" insecure playground bluster speaks for itself.

What was at first entertaining has now begun to outlive its usefulness. I've now received complaints from more than one reader about your ongoing non-contributions. Consider this notice that future comments that fail to address the topic at hand will be removed. And before you start wailing about censorship and free speech, let me make it very clear that I'm quite happy to have dissenting comments posted here as long as they're relevant.

I believe Ann married one of her blog commenters.

That alone is sufficient reason to ban Patrick. After all, if you decide to consume a box of wine in one sitting, who knows what might seem like a good idea?

; )

Interesting that the IRS is more popular than the baggers, according to Fox News poll.

Dillon,

I don't think enough wine in the world exists to make that seem like a good idea.

Jymn,

I wasn't aware of that, and am doubly surprised that FOX would publish such a result. Do you have a link?
