Boobhoohoo

My Batshit Insane Future Ex-wife (banal blonde edition) loves the play the victim whilst blaming the real one:

I don't like having my name connected to the things you have in quotes there, none of which were written by me. They were written by your allies as they attacked me over and over again.

The only reason the Google searches come out the way they do is because of the endless vicious, nasty attacks on me. I haven't been the one pushing this story. They are. And you are too -- right here! I never even put your name in the original post -- or even in any post until long after you and your allies had posted repeatedly insulting me by name every way they could think of. Your name is all over their posts. Not mine.

And I still maintain that it was absolutely justified to mock that photograph. Distort what I was really saying there all you want, but the fact remains: Cozying up to Bill Clinton is not something a feminist should be doing. You have never responded to what I was really writing about. You have instead chosen to attack me, and you're doing it again, and you and your friends have leveraged what was a minor satirical blog post for your advantage. You're exploiting it again and going through the whole routine of trying to ruin my reputation again. It's an ugly way you've chosen to try to build a career as a feminist writer.

[NB: emphasis is hers, not mine.]

Shorter Althouse: Feminists shouldn't be pretty or look at Bill Clinton...and I wish Teh Google had never been invented!

PS--My Evil Twin Skippy weighs in as well.

PPS--I'll have a dissection of the scandal and an anatomical discussion of boobs a bit later...

[Update: here it is: the update you've all been waiting for:

This is the basic flow of the Boobgate brouhaha:

  1. Bloggers are invited to have tea and dumplings with a Commander-in-Chief who got a hummer and was impeached for it.
  2. Amongst the bloggers are female bloggers (yes, Mr Drum, they do exist!).
  3. Amongst the female bloggers are feminists.
  4. Amongst the feminists, there are nice, pert breastessesss.
  5. During the orgy of liveblogging and eating and smoking Cuban cigars, everybody, not just the feminist female bloggers with nice, pert breastessesss, pose for a pitcher with the Preznit.
  6. The feminist female bloggers with nice, pert breastessesss did not have the courtesy to remove their nice, pert breastessesss before posing for the pitcher and actually indecently allowed them to stick out where everybody, including the Pervert-in-Chief, could see them.
  7. General hilarity ensues when a "professor" of "law" who also "blogs" decides that the pitcher was, well, I dunno...something, proving that feminist female bloggers with nice, pert breastessesss are, in fact, NOT feminist female bloggers with nice, pert breastessesss but ANTI-feminist female bloggers with nice, pert breastessesss because Clinton enjoyed a happy ending in the Oval Office.
  8. [diddley do, diddley do, diddley do]
  9. Aeons later in intertube time, a feminist female blogger with nice, pert breastessesss writes an article in which she mentions being known for her nice, pert breastessesss isn't always helpful for a feminist blogger, but she does, in fact, have nice, pert breastessesss.
  10. Aforementioned "professor" of "law" who also "blogs" then blogs about how we're always talking about nice, pert breastessesss instead of, say...moldy, saggy sacks of rancid potatoes.
  11. Aforeaforementioned "p" of "l" who also "bs" declares herself a victim.

Okay, I might have glossed over a few things and such, and I'm sure if Althouse ever notices that I exist, she and/or her Minions of Doom and Prudery will disabuse me of any glaring factual errors I have made.  But I believe I've captured the spirit of Her High Dudgeon of Tsk's problem with Tits McGee.

Bottom-line: it's fucking stupid, but I hope Atrios gives me a link anyway.]

I wish Teh Google had never been invented!

The war cry of shallow wingtard bloggers and ABC News.

Molly - yes. I'll update the post so it's clear.

My god, she is tedious.

Hey wanker, I read it, but went and posted at Althouse's place not here.

. "I don't think a man would get that; the harassment of women is far more sexualised - men may be told that they're idiots, but they aren't called 'whores'."

Hee hee. They plainly haven't met YOU.

I read it. I am still waiting to be fed though.

Althouse serves wine at least. What gives?

Posted by: trifecta | Apr 6, 2007 2:40:26 PM

ALTHOUSE IS A BIG MEANIE.
And I mean that sincerely.

Althouse is a crying baby.

Feminists have perky breastessesss?

So. Apparently this "p" of "l" who also "bs" does not.

This must be very disappointing for her.

Posted by: ellroon | Apr 6, 2007 6:59:29 PM

It has been suggested over there in the comments that Althouse needs a reminder that this did not start out as a lecture on feminism but as a petty attack on lefty bloggers and only entered the arena of good feminism lecturing when the identity of the pert breastesses was made known and then connected to a feminist blog.

Posted by: Snow | Apr 6, 2007 8:22:57 PM

All this could be solved if everybody had artificial breasts made out of used milk jugs. Just saying.

Posted by: Echidne | Apr 6, 2007 9:25:13 PM

But then we'd clank when we ran....

Posted by: ellroon | Apr 6, 2007 11:57:06 PM

Personally, I think the chronology belongs in Wikipedia, but they'd prolly delete it.
