• Here is your President — ha ha, no, the other one: “George” — congratulating Barack Obama. [Ben Smith]
  • Hysterical manchild Eric Cantor, whose feelings were hurt by terrible bully Nancy Pelosi, is throwing his name into the House Republican Whip hat. [RedState]
  • Michelle Malkin will have none of this dumb “GOP re-branding,” which is just a fancy vapid David Axlerod-ism. The fundamentals of the Party, clearly, are strong. [Michelle Malkin]
  • A bunch of elitist four-year college professors suggest books that Obama should read, now that he’s President and has so much more time for leisure. [Inside Higher Ed]
  • Meet Obama’s all-star transition team! Starting lineup includes Janet Napolitano, John Podesta, and that new puppy that Obama has pinky-sworn to Sasha and Malia. [Marc Ambinder]
  • There are about 9 billion humans on Earth right now (not counting Joe Lieberman or his multitude of evil hologram clones.) In 1830, it was just 1 billion. [The Caucus]

  1. Eric Cantor can do the world a favor and perform the bris on Malkin. Or if that makes him queasy, he can just sign her up for his feature porn film….Jooks, a love story.

  2. Clearly Michelle Malkin doesn’t want to let go of her newly non-relevant wedge issues. I guess we can hope for an early start to the War on Christmas season.

  3. I refuse to give Malkin a click on her site. Yeah, she’s one crazy, bitter. Hell, even wingnut, crazed racist old woman Gerry Ferraro came over to the dark side.

  4. The GOP could “re-re-brand” itself – just takes some white hoods and burning crosses. The more things change the more the south looks like a bunch of racist idiots.

  5. Re Obama reading books, remember that Bush read like 300 books in his first few years, according to Rove. Barry’s smarter, so he can read a lot more.

  6. [re=167647]Canuck13652[/re]: “…Bush read like 300 books in his first few years, according to Rove.

    Comic books and Mad Magazine don’t count.

  7. That says “9 billion by mid century”… I think we’re still around 7 billion.

    Oh yeah, and I think Malkin deserves branding. Maybe a “B” on her face? For bitc— bitter… yeah… Bitter.

  8. Yo, you fudged that population figure from The Caucus big time. Current world population is about 6.7 billion, and will not reach 9 bills until mid-century.

  9. Of course Malkin doesn’t like the idea. She’s exactly what is wrong with the Republican party and the first POS they should kick to the curb on their way back from wingnutville.

  10. [re=167612]dano[/re]: And only in the twisted, water-boarded logic of a GOP hack, could we get finally: “The problem with the GOP isn’t the packaging. It’s the product.”

  11. [re=167665]SelfDeprecatingFed[/re]: backwards b its gotta be backwards otherwise its just lame and that much lame in one place is jsut to ugly to think about

  12. We should totally flood Malkin with a wave of emails expressing support for her staying the course so she doesn’t lose hope in clinging to the race-baiting phantom that is the GOP.

  13. As every news source tries to get the jump on who will be appointed to Obama’s cabinet, it’s comforting to know that Wonkette is sure to tell me, the moment we have word on the nature of the new puppy. And to be honest, I care more about that right now, riding on this wave of Happies and not wanting to think about MoneyJobsWarGloom at all. Not until tomorrow.

  14. Yes, Michelle. Please continue your obsession of race baiting the fastest growing minority in the US. Blather on, incoherantly, about ‘Reconquista’. It paid wonderful dividends for the Democrats yesterday. And let’s get another look at you in that nifty cheerleader outfit, hmmmmm????

  15. The reading list intrigues me. I think Hopey should read The Audacity of Hope and put down Whitney’s crack pipe. He then can go to the press conference and giggle, “WTF was I thinking?”

  16. I just want to point out that the General Counsel of Obama’s transition team is named “Cassandra Butts.” Assy McGee could not be reached for comment.

  17. [re=167647]Canuck13652[/re]:

    Do these books really count though?

    ‘Curious George and the War That Wasn’t, But Could Be’;

    ‘When Mommy and Daddy Don’t Know the Answer They Say God Did It ‘;

    ‘The Moran’s Guide to Reganomics’;

    ‘How to Become The Dominant Military Power In Your Elementary School;

    ‘You Are Different and That’s Bad ‘; and my favorite

    ‘See Dick Spy’.

  18. Is that loser Bush still hanging around? I like the way we do it in the UK much better; polls close at 10pm, results arrive around 2am, your bags are packed and the police are kicking the ex-first family into the street at 8am. Perfect when you’re sick of the old loser baggins. And they can’t spend 2 months mucking things up for their successor.

  19. Michelle Malkin can cling to a bag of dicks, then eat them.

    Also, she must be so proud to share a first name with our new First Lady! Isn’t that great news Michelle?! Michelle???…Hello?

  20. *I* think Sarah Palin could start reforming Journalism right here. When I read the 9 billion sentence, I about spit coffee. “I could have sworn we were just at 6.6 billion.”

    Thankfully, alert Wonkette commenters have too much time on their hands and set the record straight.

  21. I’d just like to say that any time the Republican party decides to re-brand itself, I’ll be standing by with my branding iron. Grab your ankles, GOP!

  22. Chin up, Michelle! Despite all this ethereal transcendence, there still is plenty of need for someone like you to betray your background by providing the intellectual justification for racial subjugation. Where is GOP buy-in without you sell-outs?

  23. Eric Cantor is my representative and I think he’s a fucking goon. I bet the guy’s favorite sexual position is missionary…what a boring Republican lap dog. The Democrats could take him if they put up a solid effort, instead they throw Soccer Moms with promises of “free cookie Friday” or 65 yr old Sailor with a terribly made glass eye. Come on VA District 7, we can do better!

  24. [re=167690]lampadadog[/re]: Perhaps the new puppy will be a lipstick wearing pitbull. In order to appeal to the working class, the pitbull’s lipstick will be tattooed on.

  25. A Bitter at my office was a mood killer today. Closest I’ve come to talking politics here is my Fey/Poehler ’08 poster. But I couldn’t hack it any more and spoke up.

    BITTER: And my brother will be one of those who gets his taxes raised. But he STILL voted for Obama!!!!!
    ME: Maybe he did it because he thinks that’s best for the COUNTRY.
    Etc., etc.

    I was on the verge of challenging her to “take this outside.” But she’s a hawkey mom and prolly’d kick my elite, effete ass.

  26. [re=167856]No Mommy!! IT BURNS!!![/re]: Cantor is cookie-cutter NeoCon down to his Steven Hadley glasses and red power tie.

    His financial support comes mainly from insurance, real estate, and banking/investment interests. He’s anti-stem cell research, anti-Choice, anti-raising the minimum wage, pro-war, etc., etc.

    I for one would welcome Eric as GOP House Whip. Why rebrand? Why fuck with success?

  27. And here I thought Michelle Malkin was the actress in “Full Metal Jacket”. You know, the “no boom boom with soul brother, too beaucoup” one.

  28. I don’t understand why you all are being like this. You think maybe if you did more on substance, and not on ethnic stereotypes or slurs, you would accomplish something. Disappointing Really.
