    Well, we know the Wise Latina does the mambo better than Tom DeLay (no, you don’t get extra points for that show-off knee drop, you digusting pig). So why not baseball? If douchy white men are born with automatic rights to power in South Carolina, at the very least Puerto Ricans can all be born with pitching arms.

    There’s a British band that’s been getting good attendance in Hamburg — the Beatles or something. Yglesias should give ‘em a listen.

    [re=416887]Jukesgrrl[/re]: That would be your Dominicans who are dominating beisbol this days, if I have my ethnic stereotypes in order.

    Together, the Fox News network and Bachmann create a very “truthy” tag-team.

    Oh, I can’t wait to see how long that lasts. “Teabag Team” Anyone ?

    On the dating video thing — tell me the guy who starts at 0:57 isn’t talking about his date’s corpse after he’s tortured and raped her for 3 days in his basement/dungeon, and then slowly bled her to death and cut her into tall-kitchen-garbage-bag-sized pieces.

    Wow. Bachmann batshittery at its finest: “Alaskan caribou favor oil drilling because they like the warmth of the pipeline.” What? Did Michelle take a caribou poll or something?

    Note to Michelle Bachman: When O’Reilly finally teabags you for being such a good wingnut, those won’t be falafels you’ll be smelling.

  8. ManchuCandidate

    Wingnuts will go apoplectic if the Wise Latina throws the baseball better than Lindsey and then demand a chromosome test to verify if she’s really female like a South African athlete recently was.

    Bachmann Obi wan Kenobi Overdrive

    “Use the Factor, GOP”
    “The Insanity is with you… Always”
    “Your facts can deceive you; don’t trust them.”
    “The Factor is what gives a GOPer their power. It’s an energy field created by all insane things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the GOP together.”

    $50 bucks for the first photo of Bachman getting out of a car with no underpants on.

    I gots to know if that thing is full bush or not.

  11. ManchuCandidate

    [re=416923]rocktonsammy[/re]:
    Just $50?

    I’m sure that she’s “found” a verse in the bible that considers a Brazilian/landing strip a sin.

    “The 111th Congress class picture was ripe with the usual ass-grabs and suggestive hand gestures.”
    Did you mean, was RIFE with? Just askin’ …

    While Sonia is throwing out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium, Lindsey will be catching the first pitch at Yank-Me Gaydium.

  14. BeWoot

    I understand what Coburn’s little aide was talking about. After watching those hunks on VHS, suddenly I’m gay. Really, really gay.

  15. slappypaddy

    matt and michelle can get together and sing the horst wessel song to the caribous, that’s a favorite. then they can lay a little warm pipe together, see what kind of new batshit crazy they can generate.

    [re=416904]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: Did Michelle take a caribou poll or something?

    You wouldn’t believe what those vile ruminants think about immigration and the estate tax.

  17. Tundra Grifter

    [re=416942]hockeymom[/re]: That certainly explains why AlGore lost in Florida in 2000 – those stupid Democrats were voting with their hands!

  18. Tundra Grifter

    [re=416951]user-of-owls[/re]: Don’t forget that the modern Alaskan caribou were imported from Siberia in the late 19th Century! This was pre-Commie Siberia, of course, so that makes them Czar Caribou!

    Or, perhaps that is the name of a popular Russian luncheon dish.

    The gem of this round-up was the blog post at the Weakly Reader…errr Standard where one of the interchangeable conservatards that work there opines that our President, is falling down on the job when it comes to spontaneously celebrating the slaughter of the browns in the third world shit holes where we invest our defense dollars.
    The limp thrust of the effort is our dusky overlord is “dithering” over a strategy that will bring decisive victory to our blessed war makers in exotic Afghanistan so it must be someone in the White House who leaked the ultra secret military report titled “Afghanistan: We are so fucked”. The Weakly blogger couldn’t explain why it would benefit the White House to do something like that and readily admits he has no proof such a thing actually happened but since it would be a felony, he sure hopes it was somebody in the White House.

    Que? McChrystal is handsome?

    And, the Yankees have a “director of Latino Affairs”? Shouldn’t that be the other way around?

  21. remembers when Wonkette was funny

    I think poor over-taxed Mom Ms Bachmann just got fatigued, and got her statements crossed.

    Clearly, Caribou vote with their feet, and dear Michelle loves herself a nice warm pipe.
