Answering questions from partisans.

In a desperate attempt to puff up his traffic, Atrios has once more unleashed his savage commenters. This time this blog is the target. Why does Atrios not distance himself from his despicable "community"? I am not an eighth of the way through the comments and already I am appalled by the sexist crap:
Never attribute to stupidity what can be attributed to sycophancy.

Save us, Altmouse!

Indeed. And surprised with the blogger quoted that Plamegate isn't being mentioned more in this context.

That last comes from a commenter named "Woot." "Woot" is an inherently sexist term. How shocking. But it is the raw and unpleasant sexism of the third commenter that I find most outrageous. I suppose Atrios will call this kind of joking "ironic." The Democratic party has a long, long way to go to convince me they are in favor of women, led as they are by such anti-female figures as Atrios and Hillary Clinton.

But it is this comment from Atrios that is the most frightening:
Magic 8 ball sez on prospect of Althouse providing a satisfactory answer to Ted's question: all signs point to no.
"Magic 8 Ball"? I cannot tell if that refers to how much Atrios hates women or how much he hates America.

I believe that my analysis of this issue should answer "Ted's" question to the satisfaction of everyone, except partisans.

UPDATE: Atrios's "real" name is supposedly "Duncan Black." I find it appalling that a prominent liberal blogger has adopted such a racist surname.

As always, Ms. Altmouse smacks down the barbarians with a well-placed bon mot.

I am honored and ashamed that my sexist slurs were spotted through the heavy obfuscation I attempted. You are blessed with brilliance above your station, as well as with sexified lips.

"Magic 8 Ball"? When they lack cogent and coherent arguments these people turn to such superstition and voodoo to bolster a claim? How sad.

And "Duncan Black"? I think that he uses that nom de blog as a sly change of "Dunkin' Black" which shows the true attitude of these partisans toward our tinted brethren. I find this appalling and am shocked that no one in his "community" has called him on this.

Wow Ann (and yes I suspect you will delete this one too, you intellectual coward) stupidity really does reign supreme.

"Magic 8 Ball" refers to a toy, a plastic billiard 8 Ball that is filled with a blue liquid. A white hollow, plastic icosahedron with a different yes/no/I don't know answer on each face is placed in the liquid. At the bottom of the 8 ball is a clear glass window in which you can see one face of the icosahedron. To use the 8 ball you ask a question such as "Do I really think Ann is so dumb as to not know what a Magic 8 ball is?" Then you shake the ball turn it upside down and voila, you get an answer. You can learn all you need to know by visiting

Obviously Duncan used this prophetic device to correctly conclude that Ann could not, in fact, explain how the NSA leak was more harmful than the Plame leak.

And just because, yes I think you are this dumb, Duncan Black is his real name. As such, I doubt that the more African in our community will give a toss over his surname.

Ann, don't worry about dominion. Obviously, a partisan! Probably a sexual harrasser as well. (Look at that handle! S&M?)

Damn, someone needs a snark implant.....

Your evil alter-ego was on NPR this morning. If only she were as open to honest, nonpartisan self-reflection as you, Professor Altmouse, we'd all be better off.

But no, she's too busy sucking Samuel Alito's little gavel.

Dominion, you are a coward who should have revealed his URL so I could come over there and leave lots of tendentious and repetitive comments in support of my new heroine, Professor Altmouse!

"Bush supporting Constitutional Law Scholar"

An oxymoron. Outing Plame as a CIA operative is treason. Well.. oh.. sorry - it's treason only if a Democrat does it, right?

Are you being so partisan as to suggest the following?

Short Ann-

(as she holds her hands over her ears)
"Lalalalalalalalala I can't hear you!"

My partian IBM clone is now showing the divine picture of Ms. Altmouse!

People, read the sidebar. This blog is a joke. Come on, nobody is stupid enough to think Atrios' real name is a racial slur, "woot" is sexist, and not know what a magic 8 ball is. Except maybe Bill O'Reilly.

Okay I take it back... nobody except Bill O'Reilly and Pat Robertson (just read this).

"woot" isn't a sexist word?
Of course it is! To think otherwise is absurd! And the 8 ball toy is just another insidious way of being sexist. Only Democrats play with 8 ball toys!

I think Ann should super-duper delete partisans like anonymous!

Eclairs for everybody!

I got here from alicublog. I read this entry and was completely baffled. Parody? I thought to myself. Only the best satire is realistic enough to make me wonder.

Now, I'm not saying you're the modern day blogging equivalent of Swift, (so don't get a swollen head) but you had me going.

BTW, on my screen the sidebar is at the bottom.

Troy, that is OK. FWIW, read Althouse for a minute and then read this stuff again...

This is quite an evil little blog, actually...

Blogger Ann Altmouse said...

The tone of this blog has been altered for the worse by several categories of new readers. I will begin to delete comments that destroy the old, nonpartisan atmosphere.

If there is one thing I like to avoid, it is unpleasantness.

How do you avoid yourself?

When I don't think about me, I avoid myself. That is very clear.
