Are You Sexy Enough For Marc Ambinder’s Obama Club?

by Jim Newell

We are sitting on our hands, in a cold sweat, staring at the floor, WAITING for Marc Ambinder to decide on our request to join the sexiest fanciest Facebook club ever that we found today. Must be worthy… must be worthy. You can try and join too! Are you “working on” the presidential transition? HONOR CODE, PEOPLE. Ambinder will sniff you out if you’re lying! Apparently the Ambinder Transition Sex Club is also looking for a social chair. We nominate Intern Juli. IF WE EVEN GET IN! [Facebook]

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.

Did you remember to tell him we’re being cataloged in the Library of Congress? That should win us some sexy points.

arouet November 10, 2008 at 8:25 pm

I second that nomination!

It’s fun to f*ck with Marc Ambinder by sending him emails that pretend to be from an “insider” who knows what “people” in “certain circles” are “mentioning”. My personal project is to convince that John McCain will be our next Secretary of State.

It is not fair your intertube traditions discriminate against the more experienced and therefore better senior members of our society who aren’t even sure how to surf their way to an email. If you had only voted for Walnuts, these socialist e-meeting grounds would be banished and replaced by punch card thingies and the infinate brilliance of hanging chads.

A thousand whore diamonds to the reader who creates ‘Uncovering the 44 Transition’ — A Facebook for losers who want to see Thunder and Lightning porn. We’ll use this space to exchange drawings and stories, and organize naked events with members of the transition team.

The Atlantic Monthly, gonzo journalism.

Last months issue had more lists of crap than Esquire.

44,000 POINTS OF LIGHT

NICE TRANSITION THEME!

[re=172592]CivicHoliday[/re]: Yes, the Library of Congress demands only the upmost respect and therefore should equate to automatic admission for all Wonkette editors and interns.

So was was Larry Craig involved in the Library of Congress. I heard he was very successful in heading up the male congress department. Or was that some other Republican?

I hope I hope I hope your sole purpose in posting this information is so that Marc Ambinder has to go through and look at each and every one of our ugly faces when we, of course, try to get in.

blinky_twinkie November 10, 2008 at 8:40 pm

I have none of the sexie. Mambinder the Awesome thinks I’m fat. Sigh.

PS. “the news nets”?? WTF are news nets? Are they things with spikes that are flung from horseback to capture bloodied and fleeing news stories as they scuttle for the underbrush? How old IS this dude?

qwerty42 November 10, 2008 at 8:42 pm

[re=172592]CivicHoliday[/re]: “… cataloged in the Library of Congress” oh cripes. they are. i forgot. can they track me down?

InKnockYouUs November 10, 2008 at 8:44 pm

Marc Ambinder is a friend of someone I am friends with. And I am a big nobody. Must be the 6 degrees of separation thing. Anyway, I can contact my friend if it would help.

Most important thing I learned from this: Chuck Todd has Facebook! I must make Chuck Todd be my Facebook boyfriend. New life goal.

** we need to recruit members
** we need to exchange stories
** we need to appoint a social chair to schedule events
** we’ll build a resource database consisting of press credential applications…what’s needed, etc… and can even share friendly gossip

I wanna be social chair!!! and share gossip….fuck “friendly”

Who needs Marc Ambinder? Doesn’t those silly journalists know the lyrics to “Chocolate City” – you don’t need to pullit when you got the ballot ….. “And when they come to march on you, tell em to make sure they got their James Brown pass …. Reverend Ike secretary of the treasury / Richard Prior, minister of education / Stevie Wonder, secretary of fine arts / and Ms. Aretha Franklin, the First Lady / Are ya out there CC!?”

jagorev November 10, 2008 at 8:57 pm

[re=172620]OffTheRecord[/re]: More importantly, does Nate Silver have Facebook? And how many simultaneous sex relationships is he in, right now?

tunamelt November 10, 2008 at 8:59 pm

[re=172625]jagorev[/re]: Back off the Silver, ladies. Back. Off.

travellabyrinth November 10, 2008 at 9:00 pm

Also he calls his facebook group “a Facebook”. How many Facebooks are there in a typical internet?

Viva la Cynthia November 10, 2008 at 9:00 pm

[re=172592]CivicHoliday[/re]: This is the best argument for smaller government I have ever seen.

InKnockYouUs November 10, 2008 at 9:02 pm

That was a joke, by the way.

rocktonsammy November 10, 2008 at 9:28 pm

Whats Facebook?

Some kind of facebook?

shortsshortsshorts November 10, 2008 at 9:28 pm

Hahahaha Jim is still on Facebook. I AM CHECKING YOUR STATUS AS WE SPEAK.

gorteknthemicrochips November 10, 2008 at 9:28 pm

JIM NEWELL’S constant CAPITALIZATION FOR HUMOROUS EMPHASIS is WEARING THIN as he POSTS ARTICLE AFTER ARTICLE using the SAME GIMMICK. I wonder if he might TONE IT DOWN a TAD BIT!

StrangelyBrown November 10, 2008 at 9:28 pm

Is this that “tank” I keep hearing about?

DustBowlBlues November 10, 2008 at 9:31 pm

[re=172615]qwerty42[/re]: You’re kidding. This crap is in the Library of Congress? Surely you jest. If that’s the case, I have to quit using fuck and shit, etc.

Where else can I use my profane language, if not here? At Methodist Bible Study? They would fucking faint, their faces drowned in plates of gelatin salad which, here in real America, is still consumed in copious amounts.

Vartan84 November 10, 2008 at 9:39 pm

I have no idea who Marc Ambinder (Harvard) is but we have FOUR FACEBOOK FRIENDS IN COMMON, FOUR! That makes us like practically married in the world of social networking! This means he’ll have to accept me, right? Stay tuned..

CivicHoliday November 10, 2008 at 9:43 pm

[re=172630]Viva la Cynthia[/re]: not sure I follow…

cal November 10, 2008 at 9:59 pm

So where’s this Nate Silver Facebook stalker’s club I’ve heard about?

tinybubbles November 10, 2008 at 10:13 pm

[re=172650]DustBowlBlues[/re]: I love that gelatin salad! With marshmallows?

El_Guapo November 10, 2008 at 11:08 pm

[re=172597]jagorev[/re]: I love it. I’ll back you up some how. I can find some fake letter heads or a pictures of dead strippers. I got a ton of those.

Lascauxcaveman November 11, 2008 at 1:31 am

[re=172647]gorteknthemicrochips[/re]: Hey, Sara does the all caps thingees too. (Of course, she can get away with it, cuase she’s hawt.)

TGY November 11, 2008 at 3:12 am

Oh, sure, use sweet, innocent Juli as the front to your EBIL MACHINATIONS! Go on. I dare ya.

Besides, Armbinder prolly reads Wonkette or has an intern do it for him. :p

Dawn Keipuntsh November 11, 2008 at 8:28 am

With an e-mail like “Mambinder”, I thought I might add the fact that I have ropes, duct tape, clamps and other “binding” materials that might help the group out. Couldn’t hurt.
