A Terrific Misunderstanding

Ladies and Gentlemen, this has gotten out of hand.

This site does not bear any relation to Article III Groupie, David Lat, or (for those of you who really need it explained) Samuel Alito.

This site is a parody and a fiction.

Saying things like "I have reached Article III Groupie" or "I have received contact from Dave" are part of the joke.

I have been notified that some people do not get the joke, and I am no longer going to comment on the "A3G" controversy.

One would think that pretending that a fictional character was being put in a CIA Secret Prison would be clear enough to demonstrate the site is fiction, but some people (they appear mainly to be lawyers) have a limited grasp of the potential for art.

Anyone needing any confirmation on who is or is not creating this site can email me at samuelalito@yahoo.com

Sam, between us legal eagles I can set you up with some pro-bono counsel to put this absurd mix-up behind you.

Why would you think pretending to be a real person would be funny?

Scooter Libby said...

Gee, he has a point there and apparently no sense of humor. Tough beans David, chew them a little harder, bub.

Because you don't find pretending to be a real person to be funny (I assume all parties involved are over the age of 8), you have no sense of humor?

Why sign your name as Scooter Libby? Why not sign it as George Bush? Or Gilligan for that matter...

I am not easy to impersonate since you need an IQ of at least 100.

That is interesting Anonymous. Samuel Alito pretending to be Samuel Alito! Like a split psyche to me. An Alito Split...

Alitodum and Alitodee
what will become of me and me?


That would be interesting to hear Gilligan's take on all this. But not the Skipper...

Pooh said...

Sam, FWIW, I knew you were joking all along. Hopefully, my (few) readers knew it too...

bluewild said...

I'm concerned about those folk that didn't know he was kidding...some were even lawyers?!

The day Sam Alito can't blog is the day the Bush terrorists have won.

Could you reapeat that, please?

Oh man, now I can't even be certain that the Harriet Miers blog was written by Harriet.


What a bunch of moh-roons. It's called satire. My guess is Alito would laugh at this blog if he read it.

There's a Fitz one, too, but this one was the best. Nice job! :)

ollie said...

Well, I'd wish that people would stop picking on our Harriet! Of course that blog was real!

(OMG, OMG, I've lost my eyeliner!)

Hang in there. I do wonder what happend to that "Under their Robes" site as that linked to this one.

Anytime there is satircal humor to the affirmative of our beliefs the left loses it, this was a masterpiece of modern satire and humor, cheers once, twice, and three times. I'd like to buy you a beer....

No, not that one said...

This is what happens when lawyers (and the humor impaired) realize Google can search for things other than porn.

Don't let 'em get you down!
