Howard Wolfson Leaves Politics To Embrace His First Love: Selling Out

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

He is basically the Elephant Man.Poor Howard Wolfson. The former Clinton toady was born with only one testicle, half a human soul, and twice the normal complement of genes coding for poor taste in sweaters. But finally it looks like a little ray of lucky light is shining on our Wolfie: he got himself a job! After months of volunteering, he will now be officially paid to appear on Fox News.

No word yet on what the compensation package will be, but we’ll hazard a guess that it involves bat blood, chickens, and a few gallons of off-brand lube.

Wolfson’s boyfriend Karl Rove had this to say about his coworker: “He strikes me as a very able guy and surprisingly pleasant and amiable.”

At the time of the announcement, Wolfson was vacationing in Liverpool — an exceptionally creepy and sinister place to vacation.

    Vacation? In Liverpool?!?!?!? What about the name LIVER POOL strikes you as implying a holiday destination? It’s like going to Bangkok and expecting no gay prostitutes…

  • loquaciousmusic

    He’s going down to Liverpool to do nothing, apparently.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    Liverpool: the Newark of England.

  • ForeignSickSpecialist

    Fox will be the leader of news for all white viewers over 65 until they die, which isn’t happening fast enough, if you ask me.

  • loquaciousmusic

    Oh, my God. I was just reading this piece somewhere on the Intertubes about George W. Bush becoming a high school civics teacher, and this was the first comment after the author asked, “What else could he do after leaving the Oval Office?”

    He could, i dunno, tonguejack my shitbox?


    Howard Wolfson can tonguejack my shitbox.

    >>Tourism is a major factor in the economy and will be of increasing importance in the run up to the Liverpool’s year as European Capital of Culture.

    From Wiki.

    Liverpool, European Capital of Culture.

    Other than the Beatles being from there, what the hell kind of significant culture is in Liverpool?

    Wow! Never thought of that. Kind of like Hilary supporters, no?

  • Delicious

    So he appeared at no charge to lie and now he will get paid to lie.

    America, what a country.

    Howard Wolfson? Karl Rove? The only thing left would be for Dick Cheney to become a Fox News pundit after this administration is over…once they have the Sinister Triad in their leagues, the stars will align and the ground will crack and open, and the hollow screams of a thousand stolen souls will deafen us all.

    Well, there you have it: the next four years (at least) will be filled with Clintonistas constantly sniping at Obama for not fixing everything in his first 90 days, setting up Hillary for ’12.

    Can’t we just kill these assholes?

  • Borat

    Boris Johnson, the new mayor of London was FORCED to go to Liverpool to apoligise for saying all they do is “wallow in their own victimhood”. Of course it is true the people of Liverpool are like this and Boris was correct in saying this.

    So, where do you think a bitter Hillz supporter will feel at home abroad…hmmmm

  • Canuckledragger

    Well somebody from the Klingon kampaign had to go to Fox to hold l’il Lanny Davis’ hand. Funny thing. How many more Hillaryous stalwarts will make their way to GOPspeak Central, all the while pretending that Hillaryous wasn’t a Republican in Dem-drag?

    And now all the Klingon Bitters will vote for a Republican candydate because their fave Dem didn’t win the primary? What did Hillaryous put in the water to attract so many GOPervs to her nominally Dem campaign, only to have them out themselves when she lost?

    The fucking fifth column is now going public, people. Celebrate what you’ve been spared, had Hillaryous actually won.

    [re=31084]MC_Bob[/re]: The HRC and Ailes axes of evil are aligning together to form the oldest, whitest, angriest voting block ever to go to bed before 8:30. They won’t stop until they get what they want, or the street lights come on, whichever comes first.

    That sweater will go great with a fine set of stolen Scouse hubcaps.

  • Serolf Divad

    Any place whose name is a combination of the words “liver” and “pool” has got to be a creepy place. I can’t imagine a place such as that producing anything of any cultural of artistic significance. Maybe liverwurst and cod oil.

    So wait, the conservatives really did want Clinton to win? We all think Obama’s the manchurian candidate (because a black guy was in the movie) but it was really Clinton!

  • SayItWithWookies

    Best of luck, Howie. And when in Rome, do as the Romans do — suck on Karl Rove’s shrivelled, warty Gannon-stained cock.

    Fox News: Fair and balanced and unshaven and making ugly sweaters come back into style and eating your children.

    As a knitter, I can only say that the problem is not the sweater. If that thing is hand knit, it is an amazing piece of work.

    Whereas the person wearing it is just a piece of work.

    [re=31142]PJ[/re]: But it is not. It is synthetic material and machine made, much like the wearer.

    [re=31173]S.Luggo[/re]: D. The Bush Administration.

    Is that the grip of a ski pole which Howard has in his mitts, or am I being far too kind?

  • Truculent

    [re=31173]S.Luggo[/re]: All leisure time divisions of the Murdoch/Cheney octopus. As we speak/type, a special throne is being prepared. Cheney will ascend it on January 22 at a fantastic ritual announcing his appointment as Fox’s All-Wise Seer. Rows of screaming virgins will be put to the knife as John Yoo and David Addington call upon Satan to reveal himself in his full glory

    There you go. When that horrid hillary person talked about the “vast right-wing conspiracy”, she was planning her presidential campaign. The clintons and their wolves were never above the bushes and their roves. There were just less effective and more emotionally convoluted.
