Politico’s SCOOP Reveals Journalists Talk To Each Other, With Covert Digital Marxist iGroupthink Thing

  • Oh, wonder what they are talking about today on America’s most illicit chain email, Die JournoList. Hm, how do you say “Michael Calderone” in Navajo? [Politico]
  • Here is some playful near-homophone, anti-homophobe agitprop, brought to you by, who else, Chicago-based gays. [Andrew Sullivan]
  • This must be a new photo that’s surfaced of the Vietnamese elaborately torturing John McCain. [Hotline On Call]
  • O. Hussein Kennedy has shipped Daniel Rooney, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, to Ireland, for ambassadoring purposes. [The Caucus]
  • The Republicans were so excited that Sarah Palin, of the Wasilla Palins, would be speaking at some event in June. Except obviously even moose garbage like Sarah Palin doesn’t want to tarnish her image by doing that. [Ben Smith]

    “O. Hussein Kennedy has shipped Daniel Rooney, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, to Ireland, for ambassadoring purposes.”

    Could have sent Andy Rooney. Same thing. I don’t think the Irish are about to attack, or anything like that.

    JList itself has received almost no attention from the media.

    Nonsense — their dating subsidiary is advertised all over the place.

  3. Mr Blifil

    What time is that anti-abortion “revolt” against Michael Steele scheduled to start? Are they all out selecting outfits and making hotel arrangements?

    “Sarah Palin, of the Wasilla Palins”

    How come the Beverly Hillbillies jingle goes off in the back of my mind when I read that

    Chicago Gays are the best. Seriously.

    Unpretentious, kind, welcoming. Boys town people are good people.

    “Just a list where journalists and politicos can discuss events freely…” Shit, in my day, we called it a bar. And if it isn’t bad enough that my 401K is in the crapper, now I found out that I’ve been left off the really cool wonk list for ink-stained scribes like myself. I think I’ll go feed myself into the plate maker.

    Fine. You just keep thinking that way. The element of surprise is vital.

    Be afraid, Rhode Island!

    You might want to check the Wonkette Manual of Style, intern. I have been informed by your Editor-in-Chief, several times, that Wonkette does not link to The Politico.

    The Ben Smith article is awesome, a must click through. Headline is seriously:

    Palin “like, ‘no’” to GOP dinner

    Like, really?

    (also love the extra “Also” between quotes)

    [re=267508]wheelie[/re]: Don’t like 50% of Americans claim to have Irish blood (including Barry?

    The enemy will strike you from WITHIN!

  11. LittlePig

    Geez, they tortured Oldie Mchnnnnnggginton with Microsoft products??!!

    I knew the North Vietnamese were bad cats, but good Lord! The inhumanity!

    [re=267484]angryhippopotamus[/re]: CTHULHU HATES CHORDATES is the best WBC troll I’ve seen, EVAR.

    Actually, the whole counterprotest was a pretty excellent troll. GOD LOVES RED LOBSTER!

    So in typical WBC style, there were about 8 WBC fucktards and 500 counterprotesters…

    [re=267526]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: why exactly do you keep pimping that Integralist nonsense here? It sounds like Scientology without the ethnic charm.

  14. Min

    [re=267514]Bruno[/re]: Yup. You may think you’re going to an Irish-American bar tonight to drink yourself into a stupor, but it’s really a cleverly disguised internment camp.

    Do not taunt the Celtic Tiger!

    You know what really pisses me off? There’s this j-list secret cabal of lefty propagandists, Bill O’ Reilly’s top evil 5 people and nowhere do i see “my wonkette” listed. WTF? Are we not evil? Are we not liberal? Are we not men–oops, channeling old Devo videos. Isn’t there some way we can flood Glenn Drechs’ email and make him think we’re crazy and important. Or, crazy?

  16. ForTheTurnstiles

    [re=267552]doloras[/re]: That’s the point. If you think I’m promoting it and not laughing at it, then you need a finer sarcasm detector.

    There were plenty of frat guys at the protest too dancing to disco in scanty clothing..the students there are obviously incredibly smart..Phelps and crew were walloped.

    Jonah Goldberg giving 12 reasons the burger king should be king? hahahahaha! let me guess, 11 of them are because of his delicious food that jonah consumes in bulk and the number 1 reason is: he’s not a muslin black man
