• CLINTON, GORE BASICALLY HAVE SEX: “They shook hands first, and than hugged for a full five seconds, with Mr. Clinton patting his hand along Mr. Gore’s back and lingering before moving on to greet the waiting family members.” Nothing beats a good grundle-pumping on the tarmac. [NYT]

    They shook … hugged … Clinton patting … Gore’s … member

    Grundle-pumping: had to look it up, and having done so, ew.

    Wonkette is edumacational!

  • Come here a minute


  • orange

    The word “linger” is pretty sweet.

  • Gopherit

    Nothing beats a good grundle-pumping on the tarmac.

    Jim, your memoirs are going to read like the Washingtonienne’s, aren’t they?

  • TheNavOne

    When did the NYT start writing Ex Presidential slash fiction?

  • NoWireHangers

    Now we know what gets Adam Nagourney off.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Al: Thank you for saving people who were near and dear to me and who I was afraid were gone forever.
    Bill: No problem — coulda done that for you in 2000 too, if you’d only asked.

  • Nappied Hypotenuse

    Jim, if I hadn’t recently changed my handle to this, I would gladly become Grundle Pumper. Writing!

  • Mahousu

    Euna Lee has a really cute daughter.

    And Al Gore cannot keep his hands off – well, pretty much anybody, in those pictures. Perhaps we were under a misconception as to who the real horndog was in that administration.

  • Balls!

    They should have stuck to the dutch rudder, that’s not nearly as gay

  • Mr Blifil

    Then Clinton lifted the diminutive Mr. Jong-il and slowly inserted him into Mr. Gore’s rectum while hollering “Have a Lewinsky Havana Special!”

    Or words to that effect.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    Dems are gay fornicators. That’s why they’re Dems.

  • Citizen Kang


    Ahhh…you gotta love it. Elder statesmen behaving badly.

  • nappyduggs

    Grundle pumping. Mr. Newell, you have just SAVED MY MARRIAGE!11!!1

    Fuck you.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    [re=379189]V572625694[/re]: Same here. But I’ve always called that a taint. Males have an abundance of names for certain spots. How soon can I work ‘grundle’ into a casual conversation?

  • McDuff

    [re=379201]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Meow!

  • Scruffy_The_Janitor

    Scruffy wouldn’t mind an extended Slick Willy hug…

  • Pirate King of the Jews

    wikipedia does not recognize “grundle pump”

  • BadKitty

    Bless you for not posting a photo.

  • chascates

    And Limbaugh asked today if Clinton hit on the two Asian journalists he rescued.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=379189]V572625694[/re]: You and me both. There’s something to be said for blissful ignorance.

  • freakishlystrong

    Is grundle where frumunda comes from?

  • Jukesgrrl

    Hansel and Grundle.

  • Extemporanus

    Nothing beats a good grundle-pumping on the tarmac.

    A Beowulf-milking on the driveway comes pretty damn close.

  • hockeymom

    Nagourney called them both fat in the article.

  • kdaddy

    Growing up on a farm you learn, when the big animals get to pumping, get out of the way or
    become part of the grundle.

  • magic titty

    [re=379226]Pirate King of the Jews[/re]: Wikipedia would know it if it saw it.

  • blinky_twinkie

    I’ve been wondering what a “grundle” is since the movie “Dodgeball” came out. And now I know. Yay knowledge (ew).

  • Rev. Peter Lemonjello

    What, no scritches?

  • hobospacejunkie

    [re=379235]hockeymom[/re]: Nagourney is such a bitchy weight queen he can’t help editorializing. Except when it comes to describing health care industry stooges.

  • V572625694

    [re=379221]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: [re=379231]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: My distaste for the term itself is not, however, indicative of any actual repugnance for the act as such, when performed upon me by a suitable partner.

    This is how Bill Clinton would phrase it on the witness stand.

  • Gorillionaire

    Great. Now I have to rub one out at work. Thanks alot Wonkette.

  • Gopherit

    [re=379291]Gorillionaire[/re]: you are going to hell for saying that.

  • El Pinche

    Wake me when there’s youtube footage of bubba and al scissoring each other.
    Fingerbanging, also.

  • snideinplainsight

    But what about the Buffalo Wishbone?

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Takes me back to the spouse swamping days of the Clinton/Gore Bus trip.

    And, Jim, you should be happy, this article is already the fourth hit out of 1240 when you google “Grundle pumping.”

    [re=379188]Sussemilch[/re]: Now that is a movie I would pay to see.

    Of course you could have gone with: They shook . . . first, and than hugged . . . , with Mr. Clinton . . . hand along Mr. Gore’s back . . . lingering before moving on to . . . the waiting . . . members.

    Or simply: They shook . . . and . . . hugged . . . the . . . members.

  • mightysea

    They were merely exchanging long protein strands. If you can think of a simpler way, I’d like to hear it. Thanks for not making any jokes about the global warming in Gore’s pants, etc etc.

  • Snarkalicious

    [re=379353]snideinplainsight[/re]: That’s a younger man’s game, son. We’ll have to settle for a Niagra Lazy-Braid.

  • The Station Manager

    [re=379361]mightysea[/re]: Don’t blame me, I voted for Kodos.

  • Todd Mecklem

    Just sweet nostalgia for the days when Al was Bill’s favorite Vice…

  • lemprika

    Is it too early for us to call that scene the “Bromance” of the summer.

  • widget09

    I don’t know but I think a “rusty trombone” might trump that grundle pumping.
    Ante Up.

  • Uncle Glenny

    NYT left out the line about Bill smuggling a Nork missile in his pocket.

    [re=379230]chascates[/re]: Sometimes I think Rush scavenges the Wonkette comments then has editors work on the points so they seem less realistic.

  • Carl Spakler

    When I look the NYT pic I hear the theme to Love Story…

    OK, it was actually the theme to Shaft

  • Scandalabra

    Thank god Al didn’t take advantage of the tarmac photo op to deliver a “Cleveland Steamer”.

  • Lazy Media

    Everybody wants Bill Clinton to touch them. Those who have not been In The Presence don’t know it yet, but if you ever meet his Massive Red-Faced Eminence, you will understand. It’s a weird vibe. The dude’s charisma can kill at 100 paces.

  • dedalus

    Hate to admit it, but Bing sniffed out the old Grundle for me, whereas Google kept referring me to some circle jerk site named Wonkett.

    Thanks Mr. Ballme. Er…

  • hobospacejunkie

    [re=379573]Lazy Media[/re]: So true. My wife met him at a fundraiser last fall & swoons every time she talks about it.

    And I shook his hand back in ’92 in the late summer/early fall Texas heat. Boy howdy was his face red. Looked like he was about to spontaneously combust.

  • TGY

    So the Fab Four Less Two are together, again?

  • LoweredPeninsula

    [re=379573]Lazy Media[/re]: Everybody wants Bill Clinton to touch them.

    Win; because it’s true. Today, we are all wanting to be touched by Bill Clinton (Blythe).
