What’s inside the great bag of stuff given to America’s Media (plus the foreigners) at the DNC? Let’s examine it, together, and wish we were at a fancier event, like the Golden Globes or something.

From left to right:

  • The bag itself: Just a blue sack with Coke and AT&T logos. Probably made in China by armless children orphaned in the Georgian war.
  • Brochure for something called “Joint Juice.”
  • Hike/Bike map of Denver. Too bad bicycles aren’t allowed anywhere near Pepsi Center!
  • Invite for Starz chill-out lounge, where you watch cable movies and cry.
  • Can of “Joint Juice.” It’s liquid dope!
  • Big-ass notebook made of recycled crap.
  • Scary little emergency radio with earbuds, to let you know when Putin launches the nukes on Denver.
  • Little plastic boxes of … mints? We can’t get them to open. Let’s say they’re mints.
  • Logo pens, more brochures for various crap, “Dale Carnegie’s Golden Book,” which is just a tiny brochure of like two pages.
  • Post-It notes. We have been leaving these all over with cryptic warnings about the space monster invasion.
  • More goddamned “Joint Juice.” It is actually a way for old people to get a hip replacement.
  • Piece of garbage you are supposed to plant in the dirt, to make a “garbage plant.”
  • Water bottle made out of that poison plastic that makes babies grow beaks.
  • Hand sanitizer with handy belt clip. Use after touching Democrat genitalia or hands.
  • Little windmill lapel pin to prove you love windmills.
  • Little bicycle lapel pin to prove you love bicycles.
  • (There is no American Flag lapel pin, obvs.)
  • Free AT&T ringtone card! (We got “Jack U Off.”)
  • Flier for solar something or other.
  • $10 coupon at Macy’s, to buy some more hand sanitizer.

  1. Isn’t that a Nalgene reusable water bottle, famous for leeching the dreaded and toxic BPA’s? Did they only give those to the bloggers? Run! They’re trying to kill you!

  2. [re=70061]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: [re=70065]SuperRounder[/re]: [re=70068]4tehlulz[/re]: [re=70070]RooseveltFranklin[/re]: Wow. Something on your mind today, guys?

  3. What, no pack of condoms for a ‘safe, happy convention’? Ribbed for her and/or his pleasure. Maybe that’s what’s in the package of so-called ‘mints’. It’s a condom, it’s a mint, it’s a condomint.

    Also, pack of hangover helper stuff!

    Like anyone uses actual paper anymore. Geebus, Dems are cheap.

  4. Too bad, you aren’t covering the Green party’s convention. Instead of joint juice, you would be getting a joint. I hear it’ll be in Philly.

  5. [re=70081]AxmxZ[/re]: Yeah, all that talk from the President of NARAL yesterday was so hawt, I thought for certain they were going to pass the love on to the conventioneers.

  6. The surplus of Joint Juice is just depressing. It does not make me HOPE(tm)full that the DNC grasps how quickly the sun be setting on the Baby Boomer empire.

  7. Obviously these were handstuffed by bitterz with too much time on their hands (to sanitize). Grim. Did the MSM get something better in their knapsacks, perhaps? Hair pomade? Teeth whitening gel? Loofas? Mo Dowd’s latest screeds? Interesting to see that ATT is trying to get in good with the next administration (knowing them, they are probably underwriting the stage in St. Paul).

  8. Anyone have any theories about the content of the schwag bag at the Paultard convention? Other than Kugerands and little model blimps, I’ve got nothing.

    We should totally find a way of slipping some right guard in with the Green Party schwag.

  9. [re=70106]RuperttheBear[/re]: Wow….just, wow.

    What motivated you to look that up? Never mind…..I really don’t want to know. Lalalalalalalala!

  10. i’d be very grateful if i were you that they didn’t include a CD of THE GREATEST HITS FROM THE DNC – 2008, because you’d be forced to stab your eardrums out with an ice pick.

  11. Joint juice sounds like a euphemism for used bong water. Ew.

    And we will know you don’t really love windmills and bicycles unless you wear your lapel pins all the time, after the convention.

  12. [re=70106]RuperttheBear[/re]: Makes sense. I personally would rather be severly mentally and physically traumatized by wearing one of those at all times than by the rape itself.

  13. The republican swag bag includes two rubber wet suits, non abrasive nylon cord, a face mask with small breathing slit, and small dildo for inserting into the anus.

  14. A windmill lapel pin? Super! I’m sure no one at the RNC will come up with the obvious “tilting at windmills” metaphor, if you wear those. After all, they’re stoopid poopy heads.

  15. [re=70122]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: [re=70130]problemwithcaring[/re]: Semper paratus. These were developed for South Africa, which has a bad problem with rape. I think the UN should be dropping them by the millions in places where rape is a weapon of intimidation.

    [re=70133]RooseveltFranklin[/re]: Do you really want to see Harriet’s coochie? I think that’d put an end to rape all by its own bad self.

  16. …well I think you will be much more satisfied with the goody-bag you will get and the Republican Convention:

    -A map of St. Paul Minnesota that identifies all the gay bars

    -A pack of “Ruff Rider” condoms

    -A district schedule for all the local high schools

    -A 50% off coupon for “Fister” Ball Gag & Butt Plug Imporium

    -A 20% off coupon for back alley abortion

    -A 32oz bottle of Big Bear anal lube

    -A business card for the local Meth dealer

    -A 12inch ribbed black dildo with vibrating scrotal tickler.

    -A set of weighted nipple clamps

  17. [re=70146]AngryBlakGuy[/re]:

    And a “Get out of jail free card” in case you’re caught in the airport restroom assuming a wide stance.

    And a bible complete with highlighted verses and dog-eared pages.

  18. For all of you pointing out that there are no condoms, I’d remind you that this is the goodie bag FOR THE MEDIA. There is no McCain schlong to blow at the DNC, and therefore we can be assured no sex of any kind will be had by any member of the Fourth Estate this week.

  19. Yeah, because this pile of randomness won’t just get thrown in the first dumpster you pass, since how much of it is actually recyclable (or, better yet, worth using?)
    Then again, these were the same people who thought chopping down trees was a better option than recycling resources they already had…

  20. “Joint Juice is a ready-to-drink, juice-based dietary supplement with glucosamine to hydrate and lubricate healthy joints to help improve cushioning and function.* (* These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.

    They should distribute this stuff at the Republican Convention. If John McCain drank some, maybe he could lift his arms above his penis.

  21. i bet the republicans will have all sorts of goodies for them to use when hanging out in a hotel room full of gay men and meth or even bathroom stalls

  22. [re=70068]4tehlulz[/re]: Bottom center, small bottle on the stupid wanna-be rock-climber loop thingie. Not much, but it’s enough for a quick fix until you can get to the 2 qt (excuse me, 2 L) bottle you have back in the hotel room.

  23. I think they missed a golden opportunity with these swag bags. They should have put in
    a solar panel key chain,
    pick up artist handbook for young activists, by Kucinich
    buy one get one free abortion coupons
    rainbow colored “I love me some gay lovin'” bumper sticker
    grey “I hate the troops and god” magnetic car ribbon
    “DNC 2008: Best donkey show north of the border” t-shirt
    Bruce Springsteen’s patriotic hits cd
    and for the young’ens an “Is Edwards my daddy” home DNA kit.

  24. Nancy brought large bags of those studed Condoms,that drunk Bitch never wears panties.
    Joe said you won’t need Ky Jelly with Nancy.
    Do youall think my youngest daughter is really mine, I have always wondered about her.

  25. [re=70146]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Seriously, can someone put this together for the repubcon? What would one have to do to offer one’s wares (or the wares of one’s choice) to the lucky delegates?

  26. Oh, for crap’s sake. They could’ve done better than that. I sent all kinds of folks our Obama Hope on a Rope soap, you’d think one of ’em would’ve thought about adding that to the gift bag. At least it’s USEFUL, and better for you than Purell.

    Wonkette, if you want a soap, I’d be happy to send one to ya, gratis, just for the pain of having to lug that great big bag o’ nuthin’ around all day.

  27. Okay, we didn’t get a notebook at the Big Tent, but we did get that plant a card things and some books and magazines. We also did NOT get condoms.
