Wonkette Destroys Patriot/Traitor Ranking Website

by Jim Newell

[Why would we take this down? It was funny too!]

You all should be ashamed of yourselves. We showed you the nice website called Country Above Self that appropriately lists “Phony Soldiers” as death traitors to America, and you go and inflate the score of Danny Glover, the b-list actor. Obviously everyone was supposed to nominate Truck Nutz. [Country Above Self]

Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

I also believe in country above self. That country’s NORTH KOREA! How ’bout some nuclear hellfire, Scarecrow?

tunamelt May 30, 2008 at 1:37 pm

It’s awfully polite of them to say thank you.

@norbziness: I was just thinking that “country above self” sounded like it should go hand-in-hand with calling each other “Comrade”

“This site has nothing to do with ideology.”
MY ASS it doesn’t

Congratulations Wonkette on making it to traitor with 8 votes. I think we can all be proud of our contributions to zee Terroriztz.

Stephen Colbert is still on the list. Thank the lawd. And the description is so cute!

“The best part is that liberals often mindlessly mistake his genuine outrage for sarcasm and believe he’s on their side while he’s quite effectively evicerating them.”

Aww!

…speaking of the “Hacking” has the tryout period been re-introduced or do we have worry about a flood of “hardworking” people?

Advocatus_Diaboli May 30, 2008 at 1:42 pm

Didn’t this happen last week? I only say that because I missed the fun and am now very bitter.

columnv May 30, 2008 at 1:43 pm

Wonkette hates black people.

shortsshortsshorts May 30, 2008 at 1:43 pm

Oh and they mention you AngryBlakGuy because you are BLACK. How does it feel to be a traitor,
black man?

Why does George Soros get a spider? And is the traitor icon a flag that has poo on it? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Who else thinks it’s our patriotic duty to make sure that Wonkette is the greatest traitor, thus using Wonkette as a bodily shield to protect the Greatest American Ever Ron Paul from that distinction?

qwerty42 May 30, 2008 at 1:47 pm

What’s this all about:
… UPDATE: After publication of this notice in a few locations (RedState primarily) two people from Wonkette, used the chat service of Campfirenow to talk about it. Immediately after that ‘chat,’ Wonkette returns. It’s nice to have them so afraid they have to return content with ‘[Hey comical idiots, we'd never take this post down!]‘. Welcome back Wonkettes. Now you can vote yourself as high as you’d like. Its amazing what power a little Patriotic website has over the big bad Wonkette. Whoa… we’re scared. NOT.

Did they get lost in the big transition? Anyway, I see that not only are the “worst traitors” shown with what looks to be shit on the flag instead of the skull, but also that Wonkette is on the list.

tunamelt May 30, 2008 at 1:47 pm

@norbziness

Good God, pictures like that are why my Facebook account is set to private.

Advocatus_Diaboli May 30, 2008 at 1:50 pm

I got banned immediately from their fun little site for nominating Jim Newell as a patriot. Apparently the people who voted for Colbert are a bit iron-y deficient, no?

Yeah! Finally, one of my votes counted for something!!

KevoTron May 30, 2008 at 1:53 pm

How dare you mock the importance of such a prestigious website! For shame Wonkette. I shall go forth and vote you to be the biggest Benedict Arnold on that list and be sure that you are identified with a giant “poo on flag” avatar.

Seriously, though… What do you suppose dinner conversation is like for these people? I’m sure it starts with “give it two-and-a-half on medium-high and stir the corn. Throw me another Schlitz too.”

KevoTron May 30, 2008 at 1:55 pm

“whoa… we’re scared. NOT.”

What is this 1993? Wayne’s World must be about the level of humor these people are capable of. A big kudos to Angryblakguy for getting the shout out from the retards over there. Well done sir.

Gopherit v2.0 May 30, 2008 at 1:57 pm

Country Above Self On wonkette:This cowardly website admitted trying to destroy Country Above Self. They were nominated by their own members, three times, as a Traitor. It is our pleasure to give them what they wanted.

We tried to destroy them? You mean, snark destroys douchebaggery?!! I KNEW it!

Cicada May 30, 2008 at 2:00 pm

Those “Phony Soldiers” should be ashamed! How dare they have opinions based on experience! Everyone knows the true patriots are the Cheeto-stained reactionary douchebags who “serve their country” from the comfort of their parent’s basement.

Johnny_Zhivago May 30, 2008 at 2:10 pm

Isn’t this post a subtle form of appeasment?

populucious May 30, 2008 at 2:17 pm

I hate it when people use words they don’t understand, like “appeasement” or, in this case, “hacking” which does not mean “using our website the way it was designed to be used, and the way we SAY it is designed to be used, except not in a way that we WANT it to be used.” That is not hacking, that is Wonkette democracy sukaz! Booyah!

ronaldpagan May 30, 2008 at 2:31 pm

Ah ha ha ha ha ha! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Country Above Self needs to start joining Wonkette and giving us a piece of their minds! It would be hysterical!

queeraselvis v 2.0 May 30, 2008 at 2:34 pm

@ronaldpagan: You’re assuming they have a piece to spare.

Godless Liberal * May 30, 2008 at 2:38 pm

Country Above Self doesn’t get Wonkette’s cruel sarcasm, and Wonkette is oblivious to Country Above Self’s dry irony.

They ARE being ironic, right?

ronaldpagan May 30, 2008 at 2:40 pm

Elvis:

You’re forgetting about this gem of erudition.

Whoa… we’re scared. NOT.

My favorite part on the reals was when they called us “insolent.” Which is true.

Gopherit v2.0 May 30, 2008 at 2:45 pm

ronaldpagan:
If the account creation process hasn’t been streamlined since we all rejoined the site, do you really think the shortbus-types at Country Above Self sand a chance of making accounts here, yet?

Though I have to commend them on being able to IP ban. That’s something I pray Wonkette can do after the move from Gawker.

NotUrEvryDayWEzl May 30, 2008 at 2:46 pm

I wonder if I can get around their “one vote a day” rule by moving from computer to computer around the office in order to vote us to the top of the list.

Gopherit v2.0 May 30, 2008 at 2:47 pm

@Godless Liberal
In an Alains sort of way, yes.

ronaldpagan May 30, 2008 at 2:55 pm

@ Gopherit v.2.0:

There’s no comment approval system anymore. All they have to do is type screen name: AlbertoGonzalesFan; favorite politician: Mike Huckabee; and Wonkette will just think they’re kidding.

Was Wonkette able to IP ban in the past?

AngryBlakGuy May 30, 2008 at 2:58 pm

MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Finally my ANGRINESS and BLAKNESS is being recognized by brain damaged, knuckle dragging, sheep fucking, gullible, racist! And just in case I have to spell it out I’m referring to you “Country Above Self”. First of all I would to thank all the people made this possible; Ronald Pagan, Godless Liberal, ManchuCandidate, QueerElvis(the original), AudacityofHope and anyone else who was ROBBED of their star during the move. I would also thank all the ignorant people who make it not only easy but a pleasure to ridicule and make fun of them for their disconnection from reality. In closing I would like to tell Country Above Self go fukk your sisters(as if you haven’t already; Yeeeeehaaaaw!!!)

NotUrEvryDayWEzl May 30, 2008 at 2:59 pm

@NotUrEvryDayWEzl

it worked.

Gopherit v2.0 May 30, 2008 at 3:03 pm

@ronaldpagan

It must be easier to register now, but it was hell yesterday morning…..hell I tell you.

Gawker had some code that let the editors “ban” people (like Tony) but they could always create a new account. Our friends at Country have already IP banned several of us for submitting silly patriots and traitors to them. I hope the new Wonkette can do the same for guys like Tony. I suppose he could use a proxy server the3n, but really, there would be easier places to bother.

I hope my ban doesn’t affect my ability to comment there..

Sorry I am still having a ton of trouble with this whole internet thing. That was at AngryBlakGuy, obv.

AngryBlakGuy May 30, 2008 at 3:25 pm

HEY NOMINATED MYSELF A TRAITOR!

The Neoskeptic May 30, 2008 at 3:50 pm

are they using a little icon of a shit-covered american flag?

The Neoskeptic May 30, 2008 at 3:51 pm

The Neoskeptic May 30, 2008 at 3:54 pm

i’m totallymaking the shit-covered flag my avatar. thanks CountryAboveSelf!

loquaciousmusic May 30, 2008 at 4:22 pm

Ironically enough, I feel like less of an American after visiting that site.

And less of a human being. And less of a man. And less of a everything.

Gopherit v2.0 May 30, 2008 at 5:04 pm

They disabled emoticons over there. All that work some of you did is now laid to waste.
