    Game changer.

    Hopefully they send her home without any drugs.

    Ken, I swear to god, you have the absolute awesomeist collection of random pictures of all time.

    Here comes the sympathy vote for Mommy. Shit. Is this the October surprise?

  • MD4Prez2032

    Looks like the market isn’t the only thing that’s falling….

  • magic titty

    These ‘old peoples who forget to turn off the stove with their Life Alert buzzers’ stories can only make people wonder if Sarah Palin can be anywhere near Washington DC in the next 4 years if McDickish is elected. Not good for the Grand Ol Party.

  • WagTehGod

    [re=134492]spencer[/re]: Just say no, Nancy!

  • shortsshortsshorts

    Well she’s just 15 years old then Walnuts, so there ya go.

  • iwillsavethispatient

    Awesome picture. Awesome Alt-Text. Kudos, Mr Layne, kudos!

  • NoWireHangers

    Hopefully, she isn’t using that agent of Communism, Medicare, to address her fractured pelvis.

  • El Topo

    [re=134503]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Yes, and the Rocky Mountains are only 6 months older than her.

  • tunamelt

    Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!

    Lucky for you, you had Life Alert!

  • tunamelt

    [re=134503]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: That is like one whole Hannah Montana.

  • magic titty

    Didn’t this happen on an episode of Maude? Was she playing guitar hero? Did she fall into the tank?

    I demand answers!

  • Reefpilot

    It wasn’t really a fall. It was actually a surgery. They needed Nancy’s marrow and some abdominal tissue samples to complete the alchemical requirements to reanimate the gipper’s rotting carcass. Mitt Romney will carry the Frankenreagan on his shoulders, not unlike Hellboy with that Russian puppet corpse.

  • Anonymous Office Zombie

    It was an event foretold by portents in the heavens. She should have been paying closer attention to her star charts.

  • Tommy Says Soooo

    It’s Wonkette’s fault. Nancy was in a hurry to change her panties this morning and see what happened.

  • petite brawnley

    Oh, she “fell,” did she? Poor Nancy couldn’t handle a good boot-knockin’ from Mr. “I pity the fool who fails her bone density test” T. Just look at the picture!

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=134521]Tommy Says Soooo[/re]: That thought is just nasty, sir.

    John McCain has found a hotter, wealthier Former first lady to admire.

    … Laura Bush could not be reached for comment.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    So, first it is Cheney and his “heart.” Now Nancy breaks one of the most well used and strong pelvises in existence. What’s next, Newt Gingrich’s’ ass exploding?

    This is either cover for McCain’s face falling off, or Conservatism in America is literally dying.

    [re=134539]Itsjustme[/re]: “George Manos, the 75-year-old Republican, told police that Edith Walker, the 73-year-old Democrat, jumped on his back and struck him in the head three to four times with her fists.”

    She’s a spry one.

  • Advocatus_Diaboli

    Just say “no” to the pain killers, Nancy. Oh, and say “no” to the socialized medicine, too. While, you’re at it, just say no to keeping you alive you worthless piece of shit.

    [re=134521]Tommy Says Soooo[/re]:
    Oh my. Oh my.

  • Kingbee

    Is this one of those “fell down — broken pelvis” accidents like Catherine the Great was reputed to have?

  • Scooter

    Well, you know Mommy, maybe if you would watch where you’re going instead of staring at me with that goofy smile all the time . . .

  • procrastinator esq

    To be fair, it’s hard to keep from falling down when your head is ten times larger than your body, as Nancy’s is.

  • facehead
  • WadISay

    Conservatives love these ponderous state funerals so much, I bet they have and early one for Nancy Reagan’s pelvis.

  • bitchincamaro

    What happened Nance, your soothsayer failed to predict this for ya’?

  • dmac

    If Nancy Reagan ever falls in front of me and asks for help, I’m going to just say no.

  • Scooter

    One good thing about Nancy, she apparently gave Grampy McSame some serious stink-eye when he dumped #1, abandoned his kids and ran off with Cindzilla. Well, now that I think of it Nancy and Ronnie’s affair progressed on a similar track. Oh never mind, I can’t think of a good thing about Nancy. But get well anyway you old nut.

  • masterdebater

    The first time in a long time that I can remember a story about a woman that didn’t have an “I’d do her” comment. This site is getting very cosmopolitan.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    I suppose “Mr. T? I’d hit that!” just isn’t the same.

  • JohnnyMeatworth

    [re=134651]masterdebater[/re]: That having been said, any Sun City Girls fans out there?


  • WadISay

    What fool done gone an’ sit on my lap?

  • Uncle Al

    The Kitty Kelly book said before Nancy married Ronnie, she was known as the blow-job queen of Hollywood.


  • Scandalabra

    And whatever happened to the couturier Adolfo? Remember when she was the hag-du-jour? Was he sent to Gitmo?

  • AnglRdr

    Lord knows I am not a Nancy Reagan fan, but I hope she heals well and quickly.

    Getting old is a bitch.

  • JSDC007

    The widow Reagan, bless her heart, warmed all our frigid hearts by her uplifting Oscar-worthy performance at Ronnie’s funeral. And so we wish her the best in her recovery. May she dance again in an Adolfo gown and her old lady Manolos.

  • dmac

    The only good thing about Nancy Reagan is that ‘Just Say No’ and the rest of her husband’s drug policies probably made them more available.

  • slinkimalinki

    reduced schedule of what? binging and purging? being generally evil?
