Apparently your Wonkette was depicted this way on Anderson Cooper’s show last night, as part of the “angry left” along with Daily Kos and, uh, the Washington Post. Really? We’ve always thought of ourselves as WARBLOGGERS. The pull quote CNN uses, of the word “Mad” repeated three times (this is how CNN indicates that the Angry Left is “mad” about something), comes from a Kev-O-Tron comment that was actually written, “mad mad mad.” So CNN misquoted Kev-O-Tron, IS ALL. Anyway, enjoy Gitmo, Kev-O-Tron! [CNN]

  1. So they read our crap if we write it 3 times over? OK, then: Anderson Cooper is a douchenozzle, douchenozzle, douchebozzle.

    Oh and I want Campbell’s cell phone number.

  2. Well, perhaps he used “mad” to mean “very” like some in the Northeast use it. Thus, he could have meant “very very very [good]”…

  3. well it was a very eloquent statement of anger. kudos indeed. though i’ll point out my comment was “fuck him fuck him fuck him,” which is almost as eloquent i think.

  4. [re=203381]obfuscator[/re]: No, see that won’t work. To get quoted on CNN it must be one syllable words. You were close with the repitiion and all though. May I suggest “Joy, Joy, Joy”?

  5. I don’t know what everyone is upset about. How the fuck is Obama gonna find a Jeebus freak who doesn’t hate teh gays? Jeebus and homophobia go together like peanut butter & Jelly.

  6. They may have edited [re=203410]Kev-O-Tron[/re] but they did not change the meaning. The typing was lower case, but the emotion was all caps.

  7. [re=203420]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Anyone who takes the comments section here seriously is not only sober but also a fool. Yeah, I’m talking to you Anderson Cooper.

  8. [re=203420]SayItWithWookies[/re]: I take this site as seriously as I take my life with razor blades every night – across the wrists for attention.

  9. [re=203413]Kev-O-Tron[/re]: Joe the Plumber is making some bucks with his 15 minutes. You’ve earned it my friend. Have any good weed you can spare?

  10. All caps and with commas. God damnit! Fuck you, CNN! Fuck you up the ass! We don’t use all caps and commas round these parts.

    Oh, and you have lovely eyes, Anderson. And perty lips.

  11. [re=203413]Kev-O-Tron[/re]:
    Don’t let it go to your head now. Stay calm. If Bill O-Really calls just tell him you’re busy and to eat two big bags of dicks.

  12. And yet they couldn’t report on all the awesome names we came up with for Palin? Fuck you, CNN.

    Really, the best props we’ve gotten on the teevee is on the Daily Show. He mentioned TruckNutz – the highlight of our host of memes. For that alone, Stewart > Cooper.

  13. [re=203413]Kev-O-Tron[/re]: Dude, the press *always* takes things out of context. The press doesn’t believe in context. Sorry.

    Way to go and have fun at Gitmo before it closes.

  14. Hey, look what Americablog found on Saddleback’s website:

    “Because membership in a church is an outgrowth of accepting the Lordship and leadership of Jesus in one’s life, someone unwilling to repent of their homosexual lifestyle would not be accepted at a member at Saddleback Church.”

    Rick Warren: Closeted, or completely in denial?

  15. I had no idea that it was so easy to get a mention in the mainstream media. All you have to do is say something that can be misconstrued as “loony leftism.”

    How about this, Anderson?: “If Obama does not withdraw Rick Warren, then *We* (since I am officially authorized to speak on behalf of the entire, monolithic, highly organized, vanguard LGBT/Left/sexually permissive/decadent/elite/Beansprout-eating, sandal-wearing, fruit-juice drinking, coast-dwelling population) will do “something” “drastic”.”

    Since Anderson Cooper’s staff clearly doesn’t screen for sarcasm, that’s sure to make it into tonight’s news.

  16. The fact that mainstream media is quoting Wonkette makes me very very very happy. Even if it’s an out of context misquote and total misrepresentation of everything this site stands for (and it stands for a lot!).

  17. [re=203465]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: Haha, I laughed. This better not happen…or else. I’ll hold my breath until I turn blue! At least Campbell Brown is attractive.

  18. I feel so slighted. I’ve been posting for weeks on here that NOBAMA LIKES NIPPLE PLAY and not even a peep on AC 360. Perhaps Campbell Brown can save me?

  19. Um This is kind of sad- I would have expected Anderson to be a little bit brighter than that- poor guy’s gonna catch hell for directing curious innocents to our angry left blog- especially when they learn that all the angry left wants to discuss is booze, trucknutz and teh assfucking…

    then again maybe that was his plan- Anderson, like Cambell, is wise and all knowing….

  20. [re=203410]Kev-O-Tron[/re]: I sense anger in your silence.

    How come shortsshortsshorts isn’t the official voice of teh angry left here at Wonkette? Why wasn’t he quoted? I believe his response was “Fuck Piss Shit Vagina Tortoise!”

    And CNN call themselves a news organization…

  21. Wait, you mean the rest of you Warbloggers aren’t embedded in Basra? How come I got the short straw. Damn you Rick Warren! I’m mad mad mad (that’s how to do it right, with out the commas?)

  22. Gotta hand it to Coop. He picks out one of the very few Kev-0 comments that have absolutely zero funni (or at least some bitter snark) in them.

  23. Hi,

    I was watching my favorite news show on tv and they mentioned this website. They said this is where the angry warbloggers are. I’m confused. You just seem to be very dirty, dirty people, high on pot, and having conflicted feelings about teh gays. You really should stay away from that devil weed, and spend more time praying to Jesus. Also less warblogging might improve your outlook.

    Merry Christmas,
    Holly

  24. Today Anderson Cooper; Tomorrow the World! CNN is just striking back because of the nasties you mad people wrote about Camelface Brown, who is Trig’s birth mother.

  25. I wrote a witty comment on one of Gene Robinson’s columns, and I hear Joe Biden is going to use it when he warms up the crowd for Hopey.

    If I had known we were a “reliable source” for CNN, I would have brought it to their attention that calling stuff “The Situation Room” or “AC 360” is the most pretentious bunch of crap I have ever heard.

  26. [re=203429]chascates[/re]: I’m going to start hawking Cutco knives and I’m launching my singing career. And no, I need all my weed. sorry.

    [re=203557]Lascauxcaveman[/re]:
    I know! I have a reputation to uphold! That reputation being: drunk, half-gay and sarcastic to a fault.

    [re=203511]facehead[/re]: This totally made my day. I’m fucking thrilled right now. And to think – I almost didn’t come into work today….

    I’d like to thank the academy and all my clock-watching friends here at wonkette. This is totally going on my resume.

    /takes a bow

  27. [re=203530]Bruno[/re]: I struggle with comma usage. It’s really quite saw because I’m articulate in person but completely publik skool in writing.

  28. [re=203605]Kev-O-Tron[/re]: I’m tickled turquoise by the whole thing, and I’ll be giggling about this for the both of us for the rest of the night. Kudos!

    I’ll be emailing you some pamphlets about various anger management courses available in your area. Don’t take this as a threat, rather, interpret this simply as a friendly suggestion from an anonymous warblogger, like yourself, who cares about your well-being.

  29. I got banned from Daily Kos for cursing out the Obama cultists over Warren, and Kev-O-Tron becomes famous. Congratulations, Kev-O. You have taught me that dreams can be fulfilled. Next time I’ll curse in the right direction, make sure I’m a little more gay, and drink a lot more. It’s a sure fire plan. In no time I’ll be flying a sign that says, “Will be a huge asshole if you click on my ad links.”

  30. Whenever Wonkette is referenced on the teevee, it always makes me feel important because, you know, I consider myself a part of the wonkerrati.

    But then, I live a very small, unimportant life.

  31. Kev-o writes a brilliant post and all they want is mad, mad, mad.

    Actually, traffic is so heavy tonight that I can’t watch it–except for some woman’s ass. What’s that about?–and maybe Kev’s entire, brilliant post is read.

  32. what’s funny is that fatty rick warren wants to fuck every good lookin woman he sees.

    what’s even funnier is that our negro president gots to reign him in.

  33. They keep talking about the “angry left” probably because there’s plenty of left that isn’t angry. As opposed to the right, which is all anger, all the time, so they don’t need to differentiate.

    But honestly—Daily Kos? They could do so much better if they want to find anger. They’re just not trying hard enough. They should check HillaryIs44, which is full of loads of anger and unintentional comedy. It was loads of fun during the primaries, but now that the elections are over, the fact that they’re still going is simply hilarious… er, I mean, Hillarious.

  34. [re=203619]Kev-O-Tron[/re]: You know that I am currently compiling a law suit against you for the use of triplet words in any context, right? YOU ARE GOING DOWN KEVIN. DOWN.

  35. [re=203835]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: now that wonkette is “news” it’ll be easier to establish harm… watch for civil suit, Kev-O-Tron! Kiss that Gitmo defense fund cash goodbye!

  36. Yeah, that’s right CNN. Don’t let Wonkette Girl’s cute little grin and librarian glasses fool you- She commands a veritable army of political desperadoes.

    Armed with computers, wit, and no respect for public douchebaggery or those media mouthpieces who would act as its apologists, we stand ready to snark without mercy.

    We are Wonketteers, hear us roar!

  37. Just got around to reading Friday’s wonkette now.

    Congratulations on the leftwing Zeitgeist punditry, Kev!

    So . . . how do you feel about this weekend’s news headlines? Say something quotable and make it stark, angry, repetitious.
