Late afternoon Bethany-themed palate cleanser

posted at 5:58 pm on August 23, 2006 by Allahpundit

E-mail we received this afternoon at shortly after two, in its entirety:

From: XXXXX@aol.com
To: tips@hotair.com
Date: Aug 23, 2006 2:08 PM
Subject: More Bethany

More Bethany please.

Another e-mail that Karol got from a friend and forwarded along to me:

OK, that chick that did Vent today is so distractingly hot, not only could I not concentrate on a single thing she said, I found myself [unable to concentrate] in my office.

Holy crap. Allah must be the luckiest … dude of all time to have all you hotties. Meanwhile, let me get back to working with … geriatrics.

Bill also e-mailed to ask me for an invite to the Hot Air Christmas party, on the assumption that Bethany will be there.

Let’s address a few things.

1. Allah doesn’t know Bethany.
2. If Allah did know Bethany, do you really think he’d be introducing her to other guys?
3. No transcript of today’s Vent will be made available for those who watched it but couldn’t quite “follow along.”
4. There will be more Bethany here tomorrow, and then of course regularly at realVerse going forward. Judging from today’s response, they should be pulling Kos traffic within a few weeks.

We’ll leave it at this. Side by side comparison:

I think you could make an argument. What else needs to be said?

I’ve got a ton of links piled up so let me take the opportunity to unload some here. Instapundit’s written before about the possibility of resolving certain moral conundrums (read: abortion) through better technology (read: more effective contraception). He’s right. And the kangaroos couldn’t be happier.

A highly scientific poll of Hollywood stars conducted by Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has found that more than half opposed Israel’s war with Hezbollah. Especially “Ralf Finesse.”

An Indian man describes what it feels like to have another man inside you.

John Mark Karr says he had sex of a sort with JonBenet. He also admits to having kissed other little girls on the mouth, but it’s okay because “they’ve actually most of the time initiated the kiss.”

Some day soon, one of us is going to accuse a computer of bias.

And finally: has Osama seen “Enter the Dragon”?

I found myself [unable to concentrate] in my office.

Does this mean what I think it means? Or is my mind in the gutter? Or both?

mikeyboss on August 23, 2006 at 6:03 PM

He said “getting shy” and I wasn’t sure if that was a euphemism or not.

So I played it coy.

Allahpundit on August 23, 2006 at 6:04 PM

I’m sorry AP, what?

You kinda faded out there for a second. I guess I was distracted.

Anyway, please continue with the posting.

EFG on August 23, 2006 at 6:06 PM

And where the hell is the picture of Mr. Bhagat’s twin?

mikeyboss on August 23, 2006 at 6:07 PM

I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who was distracted by Bethany’s …er … delivery.

jwookie on August 23, 2006 at 6:07 PM

I watched the Vent this morning and I haven’t been the same all day. As bad as this may sound, Michelle, wherever you are, why don’t you take a few more days off and relax. Maybe a week or two. I think Bethany has things under control.

msplitt on August 23, 2006 at 6:12 PM

I think we need a televised debate between the Hotair babes err, commentators and the Kos Kids. Talk about a complete lock on the heterosexual male vote!

Mike O on August 23, 2006 at 6:17 PM

I’ll keep watching as long as she doesn’t start singing ballads from Prussian Blue or preaching how God created this world in six days ’cause God said it, she believes it and that effing settles it.

Alan on August 23, 2006 at 6:20 PM

Helloooo Bethany!
Thanks for telling us about the latest “dissident” in the media. Bo..freakin…Hoo!

RobCon on August 23, 2006 at 6:25 PM

I think I’ve got to toss this lovely lady into the comparison ring, and then point out that the guy who is married to that scrumptious muffin is also the new Commissioner of the National Football League.

Some guys have all the luck. Imagine snagging Condi’s dream job. And Skinner.

Dammit!

Pablo on August 23, 2006 at 6:25 PM

Doooowwwwnn boys, down…although I think Bethatny is prettier than the girl below (sorry I don’t even know who she is).

I wanna see Mr. Bhagat’s twin too, kinda. The description made me feel a little sick though.

I wonder if he had eaten the kangaroo “ice cream” would he have still conceived?

And enough with the sicko Karr. Back to Thailand with him! He’s playing our legal system like a fiddle.

NTWR on August 23, 2006 at 6:33 PM

I don’t know why anyone is so surprised. The Conservative side has always had the hottest babes. Not only hot, but intelligent too – unlike the Liberal side. Liberal babes are either hot and stupid or butt-ugly and book-smart.

Case in point….

Bethany – conservative, a knock-out and very intelligent.

Helen Thomas – liberal, butt-ugly and book smart (not to be confused with intelligent).

Pamela Anderson – liberal, was a knock-out and still a colossal jewel of ignorance and stupity.

Rachel Marsden – conservative, a knock-out and very intelligent.

Janeane Garofalo – liberal, butt-ugly and a loud-mouth moron who couldn’t think her way out of a wet paper bag.

Nancy Pelosi – liberal, so ugly that years of plastic surgery can’t fix it and is a blithering idiot.

Patricia Heaton – conservative, beautiful and very intelligent.

What more proof do we need?

Great move bringing in Jessica Biel’s little sister for this Vent.

Kid from Brooklyn on August 23, 2006 at 10:48 AM

Either great minds think alike, or I’m gonna stsrt charging royalties. The Kid is available for writing duty.

Kid from Brooklyn on August 23, 2006 at 6:49 PM

I’m going to go ahead and call “Bethany Distraction” for that last misspell, too…

Kid from Brooklyn on August 23, 2006 at 6:51 PM

Bo..freakin…Hoo!

Or BOO freakin hoo.
The pregnant man is creepy and icky and ewwwwww.
The only thing I can say is you guys are so funny. Altho Bethany is adorable, I am sure she would rather you love her for her brain! Y’all DID notice that didnt you? *lol*

labwrs on August 23, 2006 at 6:51 PM

I remember the…Titans.

Rick on August 23, 2006 at 6:58 PM

Altho Bethany is adorable, I am sure she would rather you love her for her brain! Y’all DID notice that didnt you? *lol*

Oh, of course. However, one would be remiss to neglect the lovely packaging surrounding that brain.

Kid from Brooklyn on August 23, 2006 at 7:05 PM

Sweet mother of god, I’m in LOVE!!

:)

VonHelton on August 23, 2006 at 7:18 PM

I’d actually prefer Bethany over Jessica.

Hoodlumman on August 23, 2006 at 7:27 PM

Thanks to a link from this site a week or so ago, I found realVerse & saw a video clip of Bethany. I can honestly say I completely forget what she said then. It was good, it was interesting…but damn! :o)

Coronagold on August 23, 2006 at 7:44 PM

No transcript of today’s Vent will be made available for those who watched it but couldn’t quite “follow along.”

I’ll settle for a transcript of Bethany’s phone number.

speed647 on August 23, 2006 at 8:05 PM

Jessica looks like an extra in the 1970s version of Battlestar Galactica.

I vote Bethany, hands down!

Lehuster on August 23, 2006 at 8:10 PM

I guarantee that she’s no older than my daughter, and so I must limit my comments to a demure “Yum.”

Jaibones on August 23, 2006 at 8:16 PM

Bethany is beautiful, who could resist those green eyes? Michelle is also hot.

Conservative girls are always hot.

I have to say, I don’t know whats more attractive, their appearance or their minds.

God bless America, God bless these intelligent conservative ladies!

oops, I I am typing this Michelle is on Bill O. No lady I know can sport a ball cap like Michelle.

gradyman on August 23, 2006 at 8:23 PM

Finally! An American answer to France’s one, clear advantage over us: Melissa Theuriau

If you’re trying to work when you click that link? Sorry, but your workday just ended.

Fred on August 23, 2006 at 8:29 PM

Au revoir, productivity.

Kid from Brooklyn on August 23, 2006 at 8:42 PM

Melissa Theuriau Video Link.

I apologize. I’m not sure what for, but I feel guilty.

Axe on August 23, 2006 at 8:56 PM

If Hotair wanted to increase their traffic they could have a tasteful portrait gallery:

The Babes of Hotair

Pehaps many would make that display their homepage …….

As Oliver Twist would say in the dining hall ….
“More Please!”

omegaram on August 23, 2006 at 9:21 PM

A highly scientific poll of Hollywood stars conducted by Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has found that more than half opposed Israel’s war with Hezbollah. Especially “Ralf Finesse.”

Oh yeah, Louie D’s brother. Mon Dieu!

RD on August 23, 2006 at 9:29 PM

Dang Bethany. I think you need Sister Toldjah on next.

vcferlita on August 23, 2006 at 9:35 PM

Biel’s got nothin’ on Bethany. Odd story – I just moved back to VT after living in Nashville (where Bethany’s from) for 5 years… The first year I lived there I worked the door at the Wildhorse Saloon and used to talk to this wicked hot girl that worked across the street at the Olde Time Picking Parlor (called something else now I think)… She had a big time Jessica Biel thing going too, that was how a lot of people would refer to her. After word got back to me that she liked me and wasn’t out of my league as I had just assumed, we had exchanged numberse hung out a couple times after work and would most likely have gone out soon…. until I found out that bartending was her weekend night job… she was a stripper during the week.

Some of you may say I was stupid for dropping it at that point. Some of you may say I’m incredibly stupid. But I just couldn’t handle that. Stripper!? Come on.

I just think it’s kind of funny that Bethany is clearly an upright and moral woman at the opposite end of the spectrum but also a Nashville native with striking Jessica Biel qualities.

RightWinged on August 23, 2006 at 9:45 PM

The conservative’s field lovelies such as Bethany, Ann Coulter, and Laura Ingraham, while liberals suit up Barbra Streisand, Hillary “Thigh Thumper” Clinton, and Miss Barney Frank.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, whose the fairest of them all?

Grouper on August 23, 2006 at 9:51 PM

I personal;ly appreciate the effort that Bethany, and the team she works with, puts into their vlogs. They are informative, seem to be accurate, and they give me another great source of information that we cannot get from the MSM.

I do recognise that her appearance is what most super models should aspire to, but I prefer to salute her, and the team for their great work.

Pretty ladies are a dime a dozen, but intelligent dolls are too far, and way too few between.

DannoJyd on August 23, 2006 at 10:09 PM

By the way Allah, I’ll never forgive you for that pregnant Indian man thing. The image of what came out of that guy will haunt my dreams.

Which reminds me, who knows where this movie line comes from:
“The hideousness of that foot will haunt my dreams forever.”

RightWinged on August 23, 2006 at 10:10 PM

“The conservative’s field lovelies such as Bethany, Ann Coulter, and Laura Ingraham, while liberals suit up Barbra Streisand, Hillary “Thigh Thumper” Clinton, and Miss Barney Frank.”

Yes, conservatives field bu=ueatiful women with the likes od Michelle, Bethany, Mary Katharine Ham and to a lesser degree Ann, but lets not also forget what makes these women even more attactive beyond thier looks…their brains and common sense.

God Bless the USA..

On a side note, the Dems have Ms. Powers who isn’t bad…we’ll just have to turn her into one of the good guys though.

bentman78 on August 23, 2006 at 10:18 PM

bentman78,

How DARE you sully the beautiful Vent hosts by even mentioning Ms. Ann “can palm two basketballs at the same time” Coulter! By Jupiter, that ought to be ban-worthy. Besides… compare the levels of abrasiveness… feisty as they may be, the Vent hosts — even combined — are about as abrasive as a paper towel. Ann? Steel wool. I like my right-wing pundettes to challenge me, not make my eyes bleed.

Ann’s new nickname: Snakes on a Plain.

Mark Jaquith on August 23, 2006 at 10:39 PM

Ann’s new nickname: Snakes on a Plain.

Damn.

I think he just called Coulter the Jackie Paisley Passey of the punditocracy.

Allahpundit on August 23, 2006 at 10:42 PM

On a side note, the Dems have Ms. Powers who isn’t bad…we’ll just have to turn her into one of the good guys though.

bentman78 on August 23, 2006 at 10:18 PM

Hey, Allah. Tell your girl to mix in some Topol. Her grill was a shade of “rusty battleship” on O’Reilly last night.

Kid from Brooklyn on August 23, 2006 at 10:52 PM

while liberals suit up Barbra Streisand, Hillary “Thigh Thumper” Clinton, and Miss Barney Frank.”

Don’t forget Helen (boom-boom) Thomas, she’s hot.

speed647 on August 23, 2006 at 11:11 PM

Ann’s new nickname: Snakes on a Plain.
Mark Jaquith on August 23, 2006 at 10:39 PM
How dare you make insults about Ann Coulter! jerk!

mimi on August 23, 2006 at 11:31 PM

1. Ham is cuter than Bethany.

2. Isn’t JacqMack already the JacqMack of the punditocracy? She’s a HIGHLY INTELLIGENT libertarian thinker, people!

Alex K on August 23, 2006 at 11:39 PM

4. There will be more Bethany here tomorrow, and then of course regularly at realVerse going forward. Judging from today’s response, they should be pulling Kos traffic within a few weeks.

Weeks? Aren’t you guys already looking at pulling in a couple of more servers by now?

MacStansbury on August 23, 2006 at 11:47 PM

FWIW, I think she looks more like Jessica Alba than Jessica Biel.

SisterToldjah on August 23, 2006 at 11:52 PM

Weeks? Aren’t you guys already looking at pulling in a couple of more servers by now?

Make it five more with the eye-candy we’ve had lately.

speed647 on August 24, 2006 at 12:06 AM

I thought this site was already on fire with the likes of Michele and MKH being the cute conservative vixens they are. But Bethany definitely puts the HOT in HotAir. Yowza!!

OC Sandman on August 24, 2006 at 12:37 AM

I’m thinking the Creator of Worlds meant that realVerse.com would be pulling in the Kos traffic, not Hot Air.

Must we speak the name of the Paisley in the same sentence as Ann Coulter? Must we really? Do you *want* my head to explode?

Anwyn on August 24, 2006 at 12:54 AM

The heat is on.

There’s the stakes, Beth!

Niko on August 24, 2006 at 1:25 AM

“The hideousness of that foot will haunt my dreams forever” – the butler from Mr. Deeds

Entelechy on August 24, 2006 at 1:39 AM

Could someone please tell me who Bethany is? She is beautiful, and all, but why are we seeing her on Hotair? Where is she from?

Warner Todd Huston on August 24, 2006 at 2:14 AM

Biel, definitely…not just because I’m a contrarian, but I dig chicks with a little less modesty, and more…scenery. Can’t wait til MKH gets back, though ;).

Rightwinged,

But I just couldn’t handle that. Stripper!? Come on.

You may have been smart, but you missed out on all the fun of learning the “Don’t date a stripper” lesson.

JollyRoger on August 24, 2006 at 4:24 AM

the butler from Mr. Deeds

Entelechy wins! Sorry, no prize dude… but glad I wasn’t the only one who knew that.

As for JollyRoger…

Sounds like you’re speaking from experience Rog?

RightWinged on August 24, 2006 at 7:29 AM

OK, confession time, that second email (to karol) was me. And I stand by it, I literally can not follow what she says for longer than 3 seconds. And the day before I was flabbergasted at Mary Katherine supreme hotness, and now this girl. Who the hell is guest venting tomorrow?

E5infantry on August 24, 2006 at 9:04 AM

Come on now people! Get a grip!!! The world is going to hell in a hand basket and we may all be in WWIII Tomorrow!!!

Bethany, will you hold my hand I’m so scared!

Ok, so I’m slimy but that’s what Pirates Aaaaarrrrrrrrrrrr! Avast! Stand-by to be boarded!! ;)

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on August 24, 2006 at 9:22 AM

Who the hell is guest venting tomorrow?

We’re ending the week with the hottest babe of all:

Jeff Goldstein.

Allahpundit on August 24, 2006 at 9:24 AM

Jeff Goldstein.

While he is a dreamy bastard, can you just put a little pop up window of Bethany up in the corner somewhere?

E5infantry on August 24, 2006 at 9:28 AM

I’ll keep watching as long as she doesn’t start singing ballads from Prussian Blue or preaching how God created this world in six days ’cause God said it, she believes it and that effing settles it.

Alan,

I know you are not equating Christians who believe in creation and those two misguided children. You aren’t really that much like a Democrat are you?

Centurion68 on August 24, 2006 at 9:55 AM

I’m not seeing the similarity. I think Bethany’s much prettier than Jessica Biel. She reminds me of a younger Natalie Portman. And not a liberal. Bonus!

Tanya on August 24, 2006 at 10:19 AM

When are you going to guest-host for us?

Allahpundit on August 24, 2006 at 10:21 AM

Gawd, not after these babes. I’m in the pasty Irish category, remember? When are you guest hosting?

Tanya on August 24, 2006 at 10:25 AM

Rightwinged-

Sounds like you’re speaking from experience Rog?

Yeah ;). I was also going to point out that you should be really suspicious of a stripper that doesn’t work the weekends.

JollyRoger on August 24, 2006 at 11:26 AM

When are you guest hosting?

Surely you jest.

Allahpundit on August 24, 2006 at 11:27 AM

I figured your response would be something like that. I’m looking forward to seeing Goldstein. The voices of bloggers are never anything like you expect.

Tanya on August 24, 2006 at 11:57 AM

I figured your response would be something like that. I’m looking forward to seeing Goldstein. The voices of bloggers are never anything like you expect.

Totally true. I’ve heard his voice on that radio show, but I’m curious to see him in action.

Allahpundit on August 24, 2006 at 11:59 AM

I listened to his totally real, not at all staged or scripted for hilarity interview with Michele Catalano, but that was so long ago.

Tanya on August 24, 2006 at 12:02 PM

His voice is pretty nondescript.

I told him to wear a tight t-shirt and show off the guns. For the ladies.

Allahpundit on August 24, 2006 at 12:07 PM

Woohoo!

Tanya on August 24, 2006 at 12:08 PM

RightWinged, no prize expected :)

Hey, I’m a dudette, who’s tried hard to parody the testasterone-functioning uh-ahing over the female guest-hosts; looking forward to Friday – Mr. Goldstein has a huge standard to measure against, after these past 2-3 days…

I hope he didn’t read all the comments. Almost a super-human challenge :)

Entelechy on August 24, 2006 at 12:39 PM

Hey, this Bethany is high maintenance. All those credit cards!

How about a pic of Mary Katherine? At least she knows how to wear a cap the right way.

Goldstein might be hit if the armadillo be seen.

JJ.1 on August 24, 2006 at 2:01 PM

Watching Hotair’s “Vent” feature makes me think of the same, lame rationalizations that guys make when they get caught with a Playboy magazine.

You know, I check it out for the, uh, “commentary.” Yeah that’s it: I slavishly visit daily for the “intellectual stimulation.”

Spurius Ligustinus on August 24, 2006 at 3:03 PM

This is just getting to stupid!!

mimi on August 24, 2006 at 3:32 PM

I told him to wear a tight t-shirt and show off the guns. For the ladies.

What time will JG’s Vent be posted again? :)
