Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • BigDupa

    So goes the old, wrinkled dicks; so goes the GOP. Who will be their version of Viagra/Cialis?

  • snideinplainsight

    What about Meghand McCain? SHE’s not X-tinct!

  • Jerk Cade

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer group of guys!

  • ForTheTurnstiles

    The nutters will rise again. Like zombies, you can’t keep the fuckers down.

  • thefrontpage

    In all reality, the GOP was actually extinct, on hundres of levels, about 1965 or thereabouts. It’s never really been in sync with about 95 percent of the population of the planet.

  • finland

    but then again, what has steve schmidt ever gotten right?

  • V572625694

    Jeebus Christ, Matalin looks more and more like Carville in a wig every day. Scary!

  • One Yield Regular

    Huh-huh. Huh. He thaid ‘thrinking entithy,’ Beavith. Huh. Huh-uh-uh.

  • ManchuCandidate

    I think Boner pills aren’t enough. Sarah Palin’s getting older and is not the correct sex. I’m guessing the Greek God Priapus. He fits. Every statue of him has a boner and he likes it “Greek” Style.

    As for the clip. No shit. Have you seen the Freeper Convention photos? All fat and/or old and white. Not exactly a healthy demo for the GOP to lean on.

  • Custerwolf

    This is pure sensationalism. You cannot say that the GOP is extinct when we all know there are billions – dare I say TRILLIONS – of viable republican sperm floating around in the anuses of unsuspecting young men everywhere. These can be harvested, people, c’mon!!!

  • tootsieroll

    I was actually watching this with my sister-in-law and her husband yesterday. I forgot exactly what Schmidt said at whatever point, but I commented, “But they don’t want the BROWN people..” and she LOL’d. Reading Wonkette has really enlarged my capacity for wit.

  • hobospacejunkie

    Steve Schmidt: if your lookin’ for a j-o-b in the G-O-P, Yur Doin It Rong.

  • KilgoreTrout_XL

    Shush, Steve.

    It’s more fun when they think they’re a majority.

  • V572625694

    [re=300440]hobospacejunkie[/re]: Ha! Ha! Ha!

  • randomsausage

    Wait, they’ll always have Alaska!

  • SayItWithWookies

    Attention Governors Perry and Sanford: NO, you cannot have federal money to protect Republicans, no matter how much you suddenly believe the Endangered Species Act is an essential piece of legislation.

  • Come here a minute

    The part where they cut back to Matalin and she’s dabbing her eyes with a tissue looks and sounds like a scene from The Birds.

  • Bruno

    By classifying them as extinct, does this mean that they did indeed walk the earth with the dinosaurs 6,000 years ago?

    I think endangered is a much better classification. And there is nothing an NRA member likes more than shootin’ dead an engangered species and hangin’ it up as a trophy in the livingroom. My personal favorite is of course the elephant-foot wastepaper basket.

  • danadevin85

    Well now we know who won’t be at the GOP Christmas part this year

  • danadevin85

    meant to say Christmas party

  • forgracie

    “And I helped.”

  • Mr Blifil

    Extinctions have consequences.

  • The Cold Sea

    Shrinking entity pretty well sums up the Republicans and their members.

  • Custerwolf

    The sex has got to be pretty incredible between those two (Carville and Matalin) for them to be able to withstand the shock of looking at each other and listening to each other every single goddamned day.

  • PrairiePossum

    Maybe they were swallowed up by the rapture. Praise Jeebus.

  • Woodwards Friend

    Excuse me but why does the LIBERAL MEDIA continue to ignore McCain’s landslide win in Oklahoma?

  • sarcasticusername

    who cares about the creepy bald guy, who can barely fit in his chair? omg david plouffe! that’s all.

  • Mr Blifil

    [re=300469]Custerwolf[/re]: True dat. Matalin must be super hung.

  • Johnny Zhivago

    It’s even worse. The Swine Flu vaccine is in a safe under Obama’s desk. He will only give it to top officials who swear a loyalty oath.

    What’s left is being distributed to Acorn stormtroopers, who will launch a new registration drive – and sorry, no vaccine if you check off “Republican”.

  • Min

    They’re not only alive and well in the South, they’re working hard to make it possible to carry concealed 24/7.

    So be afraid, people. Be very afraid.

  • randomsausage

    I wish the South would just fuck off. Apart from the two cute Dixie Chics, natch.

  • DustBowlBlues

    [re=300473]Woodwards Friend[/re]: For fuck’s sake, will you people quit saying that? Everyone, repeat after me: Oklahoma’s name is going to be changed to “Flaminglipstan.” You think I want fat old white Repubtard teabagging refugees flooding Oklahoma? We obviously have enough of them as it is.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    I like how my boyfriend, David Plouffe, (who no longer emails me now that he’s gotten what he’s wanted…sob) tries not to smirk at Baldy.

  • DustBowlBlues

    [re=300504]randomsausage[/re]: It pains me to know that the US would be better off if a group of states formed Fuckistan. The pain is in knowing a live in it.

  • norbizness

    I like his “attract one Log Cabin Republican for every 100 Bible-thumpers you alienate by supporting gay marriage” approach to GOP revitalization.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=300481]Mr Blifil[/re]: The secret to the success of their marriage is that once they wake up with each other they know nothing worse is going to happen to them the rest of the day.

  • DustBowlBlues

    [re=300511]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: I know how you feel but if it helps any, David was two-timing us. He’s stopped emailing me, as well. Thank god my Nigerian boyfriend hasn’t dumped me.

  • bitchincamaro

    Maybe they’ve got a chance to resurrect it by joining this new southern movement:


  • Bearbloke

    ‘Extinct’? Hardly – they’re merely brain-damaged… but now’s the time to stock up on wooden stakes!

  • SpikeyDog

    They won’t be extinct until we get rid of every strand of DNA they have. A dinosaur may be able to be brought back to life.

  • Zadig

    [re=300544]norbizness[/re]: That’s really the sad part. Although the whole “hate the gheys” thing is repulsive and awful to me, fixing it would net them what, a hundred votes nationally? It seems like most people secure enough to be openly gay are also sane enough to realize that the rest of the Republican platform is bullshit. And if the GOP changed, their base would be a little less, well, frothy.

    The Republicans (as in the actual party leadership) just can’t win at this point. If they keep their current platform, they’ll have about a decade of screaming irrelevance before they die completely, probably. And if they change their platform, they will die much, much faster. Like, tomorrow.

  • TeddyS

    New Republican Strategy: First, in 2010, get somebody elected to something in South Carolina. Second, build from there.

  • hobospacejunkie

    Ha! The GOP is not extinct. I’m told by insiders it still stinks to high heaven!

    Thank you, I’m here all week.

    Try the vegan veal & be sure to tip your waitresses. No touching please.

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=300432]finland[/re]: Right. I will believe it when Mark Penn spots it as a trend.

  • arclight

    To be perfectly honest, if you’re going to be temporarily extinct, seven months after getting pounded in the ass in a Presidential election and still 18 months away from the next mid-term is a perfect time to be. Just wait…in 12 months or so, they’re going to come up with something. Granted, it’ll be something retarded, but it’s going to work on some sheeple. The question is, will it work on enough sheeple to get them within striking distance of winning (or stealing) a few races, or not?

  • Zadig

    [re=300497]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: I call plagiarism. There is no way that this comment isn’t written verbatim on Red State, with certain spelling changes: “Acron” “vaksine” “NObama” and god knows how they spelled “distributed”.

  • yosoy

    [re=300469]Custerwolf[/re]: Gaaaahhhhhh!!!!

  • heathenish

    whoohoo!! can we declare a national day of celebration or something?except I do worry about the zombi factor.

  • pat robertsons personal trainer

    [re=300469]Custerwolf[/re]: or, much more likely, neither one of them believes a word what the other (and/or they themselves) say. and they’re both sorry ass bags of dicks.

  • June Cleaver 2.0

    [re=300606]Zadig[/re]: And that was basically McCain’s problem. If he had chosen someone like Tom Ridge (whom I prayed to God he didn’t pick) his base would say no; he had to pick someone like who he did pick, and ran away the last few thinking Republicans and generally indepenedent reasonable people. I don’t see how they can solve their problem without morphing into a party quite different from the existing party.

    And I’m enjoying watching how they fix it. As Steele would say, you reap what you sow, baby!

    [re=300460]Mr Blifil[/re]: Who will keep the population of Democrats in check with the demise of their principal predator?

  • hobospacejunkie

    [re=301117]WABishop[/re]: See Johnson, Lyndon B., for more information on this puzzling conundrum.
