we told you it was video day

Last Call At The Liffey: Good-Bye RNC St. Paul

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Because it’s Video Day at Wonkette (how did that happen?), let’s watch what happens when the editors of Reason, Utne Reader, your Wonkette writers and friends, and a random funny Ron Paul fanatic from Boston meet again in a terrible Irish pub just steps from the beloved Xcel Center and just moments after John McCain disrespected women by dropping balloon bombs on Andrea Mitchell. That’s right, a few moments of drunken hijinx.

And here’s … well, it sort of describes itself, doesn’t it?
Jesus fucking christ ....

Thanks to our favorite Paultard/Pats-tard Garrett Quinn for the video, and to BlogAds boss Henry Copeland for the photo!

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Special Agent Jack Mehoff

    I should probably just get this outa the way…lipstick. There.

  • PeteJayhawk v2.0

    That picture needs to go on the masthead. Hell, it should BE the masthead.

    Or the title bar thingy up top, whatever journalismists call that.

    Go America. Go Wonkette.

    I’ve been wasting time on Wonkette far too long. Every time I see the phrase “St. Paul” I think Saint Ron Paul of the golden standard.

  • CivicHoliday

    So did Garrett comment on the fact that Ron Paul is refusing to endorse McCain? Can we join with our paultard brethren to throw a tsunami of teh crazy at the Walnuts/Snowbilly ticket?

    [re=91427]Serolf Divad[/re]: You think YOU’VE been wasting time on Wonkette far too long? I now end every report at work with “[snarky comment], the end”. It’s great if you’re making fun of politicians, not so wonderful for marketing research.

  • CivicHoliday

    By the way, all, since your faithless editors here at Wonkette haven’t gotten off their asses to start a thread about it yet (even though they posted the teaser yesterday), here’s a breif description of today’s Ron Paul event:


  • freakishlystrong

    WHO is that adorable little hobbit in the patriotic lid?

  • KevoTron

    Is Sara K. Smith rocking the infamous Malkin-freak-out/Rachael Ray/Keffiyeh Chic/Tairist flag??? I knew you traitors hated America but I never knew how much…

  • freakishlystrong

    lipstick, 911, terraism, lipstick, 911, terraism, lipstick, 911, terraism, lipstick, 911, terraism..

  • rambone

    And after the spanking, the oral sex.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Where’s the Sara K pole dancing vid?

  • botlrokit

    I made another comment about being a southerner recently, but I didn’t realize our Wonkette is likewise a rebel… how else can she explain the horizontal highlights in that photograph with Sam the Eagle and dead Jim Henson? I’m hoping it was the flash or the Liffey Lighting™, and not a bottle of hydrogen peroxide.

    that look on women just screams, “I DON’T CARE WHAT MY HAIR LOOKS LIKE… LOOK AT ME, GODDAMN YOU!!”

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    Why does Wonkette hate balloons? Terrorists!

  • Big Al1317

    You’re much funnier in print.

  • WadISay

    I see by the neck tag that the middle fellow in the bottom picture took second place in something. Even not knowing what the contest was about, I would definitely have given him first.

  • Truculent

    Too bad youw asted your time at that pee hole. A better time is to be had across the river at The Local, where one can get properly pissed without having to push aside suburban dads seeking refuge from their families in the Science Museum.

  • TGY

    Good to see y’all are on the ball!

  • YellowSnow

    Sara, I’m really pleased you are not also sporting a beard. Keep up the good work

  • Rush

    I’m not pointing fingers but someone is sporting some pre-pubescent man-boobs
