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.

Joe isn’t a prick, he’s a cunt.

Noodle Salad August 19, 2008 at 9:00 am

Jesse Jackson made him an “independent” after Joementum talked down to black people (and white people, and brown, red, and yellow people).

4tehlulz August 19, 2008 at 9:01 am

Even the AP can’t help but print the truth occasionally.

Did Ron Fournier execute however let this through?

EnBuenOra August 19, 2008 at 9:04 am

Good thing to know the wire services retain some degree of journalistic capability.

accidental_tourist August 19, 2008 at 9:05 am

I don’t know what took me so damned long to realize this:

1) America would rather eat nails than elect another Republican right now.

2) The only other choice is, well, black.

3) With Lieberman and McCain you get – WHITE DEMOCRATS! It’s win/win for the morans!

(Don’t shoot the messenger.)

BTY August 19, 2008 at 9:05 am

The AP definitely nailed that one.

And is that damned talking advertisement starting to get on anyone else’s nerves?

Darehead August 19, 2008 at 9:13 am

Pastor Hagee is behind this, since he thinks Lieberman is the anti-Christ.

jerryw August 19, 2008 at 9:20 am

Joe Lieberman should run for president with his old t.v. co-star Alf as his v.p.

Alf could bring in the female vote because he liked to eat pussy
more than Ellen Degeneres.

I’m just sayin……..

You know they haven’t changed it yet….

sarcasticusername August 19, 2008 at 9:39 am

that’s the finest piece of journalism the AP has put out in ages.

loquaciousmusic August 19, 2008 at 10:00 am

Hey guys, I forgot to tell you — I got a job with the A.P.!

TGY August 19, 2008 at 10:02 am

Freudian prose.

The Incomparable Tiny Valdez August 19, 2008 at 10:02 am

I agree that Joe should be McCains prick as well.

Darehead August 19, 2008 at 10:08 am

Joe on Joe would be good entertainment for the veep-bates.

loudmouthredhead August 19, 2008 at 10:09 am

[re=62746]Darehead[/re]: No, see, it couldn’t be anyone in the religious (nutbar) community, since the Antichrist would be welcomed as the start of Armageddon and Jeebus’ eventual return. Even he (she?) would be more loved than Lieberman.

The Real JR Revisted August 19, 2008 at 10:11 am

The 11 year old in me can only process one thing in response to this: hehehehehe…

WadISay August 19, 2008 at 10:12 am

Haha, AP misspelled “douchebag.”

Strictly for the Tardcore August 19, 2008 at 10:20 am

[re=62742]accidental_tourist[/re]: If Leiberman’s a Democrat, then I’m a Republican. (PROTIP: I’m not.)

Having said that, if a McCain/Leiberman ticket wins the election, I’m moving to Canada.

glamourdammerung August 19, 2008 at 10:43 am

[re=62787]The Incomparable Tiny Valdez[/re]: I thought McCain had his captors in Hanoi for that.


4tehlulz August 19, 2008 at 10:44 am

[re=62815]Strictly for the Tardcore[/re]: Canada is a member of NATO, so it would still sustain a nuclear attack from Russia. You may want to consider someplace more out of the way, like Peru.

Mahousu August 19, 2008 at 10:45 am

So I notice nobody has asked for n00d pix of the Associated Press yet.

No, I’m not asking, either.

Mr Blifil August 19, 2008 at 10:54 am

Wonkette intern? Is there a stipend? All-the-shit-you-can-eat? Put on a blindfold while Ken Layne plays “Pin the Cigar on the Orifice?”

Darehead August 19, 2008 at 11:02 am

[re=62796]loudmouthredhead[/re]: You think too logically, my friend. Fundies don’t know logic, only dogma and catma! See, even when they knowz that the Armageddon is a-comin’, they won’t be raptured unless they actively fight against “it” — “it” which is the anti-Christ and all the world government stuff. So some of them think any kind of internationalist like McCain, L-man, Bushes, Obama etc. are all in the same global bed.

[re=62845]Mahousu[/re]: I’d settle for some nude fonts and print peekaboo and opportunities to em-bed photos, links etc.

Harvey Birdman August 19, 2008 at 11:07 am

[re=62782]loquaciousmusic[/re]: Congrats! Please find a way to fit a “Peter Pumpkinhead” reference into an Obama story.

Gopherit v2.0 August 19, 2008 at 11:14 am

I’ll be looking to the AP for a continuance in this accuracy in reporting.

V572625694 August 19, 2008 at 11:47 am

[re=62844]4tehlulz[/re]: Chimpy’s going to Paraguay. You wouldn’t want to go anywhere near him after he quits, but still: these people know things.

dano August 19, 2008 at 11:54 am

I hope McCain does pick little Joey Lieberman as his running mate. Lieberman could very well have the singular distinction of destroying two presidential bids in one short decade. And from opposite sides of the aisle no less!

gjdodger August 19, 2008 at 12:07 pm

[re=62916]dano[/re]: I hope he does, too. Because if he doesn’t, you know how much longer we’ll have to deal with the little prick?


S.Luggo August 19, 2008 at 12:10 pm

[re=62740]EnBuenOra[/re]: The AP fact checker deserves a raise.

donner_froh August 19, 2008 at 12:17 pm

[re=62935]S.Luggo[/re]: They hired one?

AxmxZ August 19, 2008 at 12:40 pm

Breaking: Pickler picks a peck of pickled pricks! More at eleven.

Strictly for the Tardcore August 19, 2008 at 1:03 pm

[re=62844]4tehlulz[/re]: I live next door to the biggest ICBM installation in the United States. The chance of getting cancer from fallout after nuking Ontario is an IMPROVEMENT.

Lionel Hutz Esq. August 19, 2008 at 2:08 pm

At least it is circumcised vice presidential prick.

Oscar Folsom Cleveland August 19, 2008 at 2:15 pm

If Joe’s a prick, what’s that make Evan Bayh?

Miller August 19, 2008 at 2:38 pm

If a politician accidentally says the truth it’s called a gaffe. What’s it when the AP accidentally tells the truth? A factcident?

sezme August 19, 2008 at 5:13 pm

[re=62785]TGY[/re]: Not a Freudian slip. No, sometimes a prick is just a prick.

glamourdammerung August 19, 2008 at 8:37 pm

[re=62916]dano[/re]: That actually would be kind of neat.

He could be like the albatross around the neck.

Jingo August 20, 2008 at 12:54 am

Wait. If Lieberman is a prick, wouldn’t those saggy jowls be foreskin? I thought he was Jewish!
