Ann Althouse & Meade Lawrence: Muddying The Waters


Good Lord, Ann Althouse is still vomiting up self-validations for herself after her latest public embarrassment:
"If they really loved commenting here and wanted to come back, they should have talked about how they could help me restore the conversation in a way that could work."

Of course, Learn to tell the truth, Ann won't be accepted as "help", so everybody's stuck.
"Instead they showed how much they were part of the problem, and how they didn't really even like me."

Habitual lying will do that, Miss Lawyer thang:
"OCTOBER 3, 2012 - Ann Althouse describes herself as "ONE OF THE INSTAPUNDIT BLOGGERS AND GUEST-BLOGGERS,..."  
July 10, 2013 - Ann Althouse writes the "perception that I'm Glenn's 'usual fellow traveller' is off, but not uncommon. I think this distorted impression has partly come from the comments section,..." 

See, only when you see someone repeatedly flat-out lie to themselves and to others - and then act smug about it - will you ever understand Ann:
"After becoming the laughing stock of the blogosphere (again), Althouse responded to the mockery, stating that she was sorry for her immature overreaction she was planning on ignoring all criticism."

The weird thing is, once you start to look, there's an Althouse pattern, and so many examples of that pattern, it's bizarre anyone ever took Ann seriously to begin with:
An instant classic...[Althouse] attacks Jessica Valenti about taking a picture with a group of bloggers at a Bill Clinton luncheon some time ago and then flies into a rage (threatening to hang up) because it was brought up in the conversation by Garance Franke-Ruta of TAPped...She goes on and on after that about the meanies that attack HER..."

That one was followed by the blogger's comment, "Narcissistic much?" Meanwhile, Ann's "second" purse-holder, Meade, is running around on other blogs, attempting to sow dissent amongst their former commenters, by even throwing money at one (and telling us all how much, and when, and then daring the rest of us to match him) prompting this comment:
"For the pair of them to bring to Lem's blog anything other than clean encouragement and clear support for him and his venture seems to me to be a form of misuse and meddling tantamount to poisoning another's well or sowing another's field with salt. Generosity of spirit is not soley marked with financial donation. By overtly and covertly presenting their own unresolved issues, justifications, and quarrels with others at Lem's, without openly owning their part in the situation that caused his blog to form, or providing a place for a mutual public dialogue on the subject to take place; they foment discord and continue to foster loss among the very people they labeled as "losers". 

 
Whatever's driving their behavior, now would be the perfect time for them to start figuring it out and stop dropping their undigested business in another's pool."

I don't know, kids:

Seems to me, that's about all they've got left, considering what they've created,...

  1. Well Crack I am sure you are familiar with grifters.

    They come in and want to be your friend and are all helpful and friendly and even loving.

    Then before you know it you are making a hostage tape with a broken nose begging for donations.

    You can see the long con happening right before your eyes.

  2. Well, if she leaves the comments off and doesn't stop to think about it, she's had the last of her blogress awards for traffic.

    PS Troop, the next time the She Devil accuses you of something, I'll take your back.

    As I say, I owe you one.

  6. I didn't comment often, but I began reading her blog in 2006. After awhile it became apparent that one of her main schticks was fancying herself as the intellectually superior one, and to play demeaning games with her readers/commenters, particularly those on the right. I'm pretty sure that's part of what's going on now. I'm pretty sure she thinks she's outsmarted everybody, and that she's adopted a self-serving attitude of smugly laughing at all the rubes. Self-delusional.

    What's funny is that you mention this thread post by her is the reason I came to Althouse to begin with. I thought her reaction seemed odd and attacking this girl for posing with Clinton while seemingly appearing to thrust her breasts in his direction. When I first read that I thought it was weird. When I read her reaction and anger about it, I thought it was weirder. I attributed it to the fact that maybe she was jealous that it wasn't her standing next to him and posing that way. Women get like that. Then after that post, everything appeared to be calm so I hung around. Fuck was I ever a sucker.

  8. By the way, Jessica Valenti was the woman that Althouse raged on. Turns out she is a big fan of your, Crack. Also, here is a write-up on the offending vortex of cruel neutrality that Ann put up for all to see.

    From the looks of it, it was feminista vs. feminista. I should have seen it even back then, but I admit that I was duped and stayed because my interest was peaked. I thought to myself, why the fuck would one women be pissed about another womans tits. Then I realized why, because it was Bill Clinton being involved. Jealousy? Envy? Tit hatred? Who the fuck knows, but it all started for me right here.

    You can see it all from the first post by Doyle, reducing it down to a simple observation and Ann goes batshit on him. Looking back on this, it's all there. You can see it. Hindsight is a fucking bitch. She gets called on her bullshit all over the place. I wonder if this incident occurred after that article came out about her round table session where she went bust-a-nut batshit and called everyone a racist libertarian that is scary true believer? It all adds up now like a sine function. These periods of sedateness followed by the peaks of crazy only to go back down again into normalcy. Jesus wow. Fucking wow. This is a youtube Hitler downfall video in the making all on its own. The mind reels.
