And they say DC is boring.

FreshCliches December 4, 2008 at 5:03 pm

Gah. For a second, I thought Bill was going to make a live appearance, and have sex with mittens.

Whereupon he’d smoke ‘em afterwards.

They masturbate with mittens on in DC? No shit.

That movie Ghostbusters prooved without a doubt that those Hollywood writers takes drugs.

Mustang December 4, 2008 at 5:17 pm

You mean there are people in DC who would stay up until midnight to go see Ghostbusters? Ooooohhhh I get it. They’re high! Never mind.

DarkSynergy December 4, 2008 at 5:18 pm

TGY December 4, 2008 at 5:19 pm

Come to the Casbah with me, Juli!

Just as soon as I find it. It’ll probably be warm, though.

Umm, hello Wonkette overlords! All of the events you listed cost money. We either have no money or are saving our coins for imitation Top Ramen noodles.

List some stuff that doesn’t cost money.

Let’s not forget the BIG RALLY!!!! tomorrow: (thnx to kernelPanic)

Sullivan has someinformation – Ed Morrissey doesn’t think much of the whole thing. Since he’s writing for HotAir, he is calming things down.
just a joke to end the day. based on the comments, they are getting even more crazy (how is that possible).
Can these people even dress themselves?

qwerty42 December 4, 2008 at 5:32 pm

[re=191525]BillyClubb[/re]: attend the rally. should be a laff riot. well, maybe a riot. that would be … well, maybe not “fun” as we understand it, maybe “interesting”.

After mittens have sex, which one has to sleep in the woolly spot?

chascates December 4, 2008 at 5:38 pm

Is there a tent city in Lafayette Park yet? All the homeless hobos hoping Hopey will help them could start a musical theater or the like. Charge canned goods for entry and entertain the despondent GOP staffers. Or just lay around and smoke crack. Or is it lie?

flapjackjackson December 4, 2008 at 5:38 pm

Nada Surf? Wow. What a bunch of bullshit music we had to wade through in the mid to late ’90′s. My favorite thing to do in D.C. is stand outside until someone comes along and robs/kills me.

anabellum December 4, 2008 at 5:48 pm

ya’ll should really come down to New Orleans…the murder rate is much higher and the bars never close….

BitterKlingon December 4, 2008 at 5:50 pm

They have sex with Mittens Romney in DC? eww. gross.

Ted Perino December 4, 2008 at 5:51 pm

These soon-to-be-pink-slipped GOP staffers have begun hanging around my major Southern University. God, what a bunch of dicks! Can’t someone find them jobs as security guards at New York Wal-Marts?

dogscantlookup December 4, 2008 at 6:47 pm

I feel so sorry for you all, it will be 2 for a low in Minneapolis tonight and we loves it!

myheadsexploding December 4, 2008 at 7:11 pm

[re=191532]qwerty42[/re]: thank god for the interweb. That way trees don’t have to die in order to spread this very special info.

tiny mexican December 4, 2008 at 7:50 pm

[re=191568]BitterKlingon[/re]: yeah I can’t imagine that would keep you warm… he seems like the type to cry after sex and yell at you to get out. Mormon shame and all.

lawrenceofthedesert December 4, 2008 at 8:45 pm

Wasn’t Loretta Lynn married to Theodore Roosevelt?

DangerousLiberal December 5, 2008 at 9:24 am

Hey, AFI, here’s a good idea: pass it along to Copolla, eh?

Come on out on Saturday, Dec. 6, 2008, for the annual Santarchy romp through D.C. There is no cost–except that every participant must be dressed in a Santa Claus outfit. That’s the only requirement! Otherwise, it’s very fun–simply 80 to 150 (estimates have varied) fun people dressed as Santa Claus romping around popular downtown sites in D.C. It’s not a protest. It’s not political. It’s not anti-anything. It’s not religious. It’s secular. It’s fun. You can get all the information that you need at If you do go, bring a bag of candy or small toys to hand out to kids. Highly-recommended, a lot of fun. It starts at noon at the National Museum of Natural History steps, out front.
