Important Changes Regarding Your Wonkette: Bye And Thanks But Mostly Thanks!

by Juli Weiner

Well hello!

A brief note from your Tuesday and Thursday morning editor: Today is my final day at Wonkette, as starting on Monday I will be blogging for Vanity Fair‘s VF Daily blog, so please come hang out there, too. It’ll be just like old times! Thank you times a million to Ken, Jim, Sara, Riley and Arielle, the best people in the entire Internet, even factoring in all the robots and whoever writes the “Twitter” Website. And thank you, readers and commenters, for reading and commenting, and for tipping and for being far, far better at grammar than I than me. I will miss everyone.

First-person singular,

Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.


Dreadful Gate February 11, 2010 at 12:01 pm

Jeebus, another blog? I can’t handle more random speculation and idle chit-chat.

I’m getting stoned

tiny mexican February 11, 2010 at 12:03 pm

Happy trails, Juli, and not the Scott Brown kind.

Rosie Scenario February 11, 2010 at 12:03 pm

Actually “than I” was correct, but you knew that. Best wishes.

Cape Clod February 11, 2010 at 12:04 pm

Julie, we hardly knew you. Good luck.

blinky_twinkie February 11, 2010 at 12:04 pm

HUGS. Have a sandwich.
(& thanks for the awesome. :-) )

teebob2000 February 11, 2010 at 12:05 pm

Buh-bye (looks at palm) Juli. (Looks at palm again) Good luck.

loquaciousmusic February 11, 2010 at 12:06 pm

I hate it. You hate it. But there it is.

We’ll miss you, Juli.

jagorev February 11, 2010 at 12:08 pm

So with Ken apparently still on hiatus writing his book or whatever, and Sara still “raising” her baby instead of letting the TV do it like real Americans, are we stuck with Jim?

V572625694 February 11, 2010 at 12:08 pm

Adios, young lady. You brought many ha-has and puzzled frowns here, mostly the former. Go forth and prosper!

shadowMark February 11, 2010 at 12:09 pm

It’s funny. Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody.

I’ll miss you most of all, Scarecrow.

Parting is all we know of heaven and all we need to know of hell.

Nonetheless Vanity Fair sucks.

Snarkalicious February 11, 2010 at 12:09 pm

We will miss you bunches. That is to say me and my horrible dick jokes. Do they allow horrible dick jokes at Vanity Fair? (puppy dog eyes)

rottenart February 11, 2010 at 12:10 pm

WEEEIIIINNNEEERRRR!!! Good luck, Juli. Perhaps VF can return your life to normalcy after a stint dealing with us ragamuffins. Maybe they can even pay you enough to afford a final “e”! Wink, wink, you betcha, also, too!

WIDTAP February 11, 2010 at 12:10 pm

Well…at least we didn’t loose you to the Moonies. Best wishes.

SmutBoffin February 11, 2010 at 12:11 pm

Wonkett just got 152% less “meta”.


Bye, Juli!

JooJoo Bee February 11, 2010 at 12:12 pm

It’s not you. It’s me. But look. We’ll always be friends.

anonymousryan February 11, 2010 at 12:13 pm

Tell Graydon Carter I said, “I got food poisoning at the Waverly Inn.” He’ll know what I’m talking about.

EmSharp February 11, 2010 at 12:13 pm

Aw, Juli! We’ll miss you. You’ve done a great job, and hopefully will carry your snarkiness to VF. NEVER FORGET..your time at Wonkette. Take care Juli!

Texan Bulldoggette February 11, 2010 at 12:16 pm

Well, that didn’t take you long to throw Wonkette under the bus to go to work for some hoity toity blog!

Seriously, good luck & try to keep Graydon’s ego in check.

DoktorZoom February 11, 2010 at 12:16 pm

My name is Dick Swett, and I’ll miss Juli Wiener.

BigDupa February 11, 2010 at 12:17 pm

Does this count as a “job created” under the stimulus package? HUZZAH! Take Riley with you as your wiper.

Come here a minute February 11, 2010 at 12:17 pm

This news is like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife.

Awww..Juli, you rawk! Kick snarky ass the VF, love!

Senile Agitation February 11, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Ah, it’s been grand Juli, thanks for that and good luck in fancy internet land.

SayItWithWookies February 11, 2010 at 12:19 pm

Oh, how sad — thanks for brightening up this little corner of the interwebs and many of my mornings, Juli. I wish you’d stay, but realize that all experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untravelled world. Godlessspeed.

x111e7thst February 11, 2010 at 12:19 pm

Oh noes Juli, you will be arrested. Your faithful companion will be put to death. I haz sad.

Crank Tango February 11, 2010 at 12:22 pm

Good luck Juli! I’ll be sure to harrass you at your new blogz.

MzNicky February 11, 2010 at 12:22 pm

Good-bye Juli. Thanks for the many many laughs. May you go far in your journalismistic life, gifted and talented young lady.

ForTheTurnstiles February 11, 2010 at 12:23 pm

Fucking Lycidas in that shit? That’s a helluva note to go out on, if you’re a boy who can’t swim. Um… Juli…

Native of SL UT February 11, 2010 at 12:24 pm

It must be said one final time before you leave. I’d hit that.

Sweet Baby Cheeses February 11, 2010 at 12:26 pm

Juli, you’re always funny, but this isn’t funny. So you’re saying I hafta point my internet at Vanity Fair now? Does that mean you’ll get one of those artsy line drawings of yourself at the top of your columns? You should probably get a monocle.

Tommmcatt February 11, 2010 at 12:26 pm

[re=511220]Rosie Scenario[/re]:

Nnononono. I (implied subject) thank you (object) for being far, far better… than ME (object).

She was right the second time. “ME” is the object form of the personal pronoun “I”.

/off to opress my co-workers with the proper use of the word “lie”

slappypaddy February 11, 2010 at 12:26 pm

hie thee to the fairly vain place, sweet maiden! kick some ass! godspeed and best wishes!

Mr Blifil February 11, 2010 at 12:26 pm

Don’t forget to crack your windoze or you run the risk of not feeling your toes anymore. And no sucking on tail pipes either.

Oh, and Juli…Vanity Fair has cooties. Just sayin’.

AllHat February 11, 2010 at 12:28 pm

This far down in the comments and no call for showing-of-tits? Stop slacking off people.

Escape Goat Nation February 11, 2010 at 12:33 pm

Is Vanity Fair only for girls or can boys look at it too?

Jim89048 February 11, 2010 at 12:33 pm

Damn. Does this mean I have to remember yet another sekrit password in order to follow the drunken ramblings of my favorite pretend intarweb grrlfriend? Good luck over there, Juli…

GayInMaine February 11, 2010 at 12:34 pm

Best of luck, Juli. We’ll keep our eyes open for your missing ‘e’. Cause Wonketters are good like that.

AnnieGetYourFun February 11, 2010 at 12:34 pm

Dammit all, Juli. What, you wanted to get “paid” for the “work” or something? Sheesh.

Norbert February 11, 2010 at 12:35 pm

More of a sideways move than a move up, I hope you know what you are doing. But good luck. Norbert

Terry February 11, 2010 at 12:35 pm

Congratulations, Juli and best wishes for a happy, healthy, and wildly successful future!

weejee February 11, 2010 at 12:37 pm

Have lots of bonfires at the Vanity. We shall miss your early morning wit. Does this mean one of the XY eds will have to arise before noon o’clock?

Darkness February 11, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Wait, there are people involved in posting on this website?

Wishing you good times in your next gig! We’ll miss you. Wait, what was your name again?

Rosie Scenario February 11, 2010 at 12:39 pm

My edit focused on end of the sentence and I still think I’m correct, or at least not wrong: You are better at grammar than I (am). But the “am” is left off. “You” are not better than “I” or “me” but better than “I am at grammar.”

PlanetWingnuta February 11, 2010 at 12:39 pm

Juli just remember…you can take the truknutz off the truck but you’ll still have nuts in your hand. You hate It, I hate it but that’s the way that it is. Also Buttseks. Also.

Autoo February 11, 2010 at 12:41 pm

OMG, the bangs! I didn’t realize our Miss Juli was so darn cute. No I’m gonna miss her more than ever.

We had so much fun together
I was sure that you were mine
But leavin’ you, baby, is drivin’ me crazy
It’s got me wonderin’ all the time

Juli, Juli, Juli, do ya love me?
Ah, Juli, Juli, Juli, do ya care?
Juli, Juli, are ya thinkin’ of me?
Juli, Juli, will ya still be there?

anonymousryan February 11, 2010 at 12:55 pm

[re=511262]Tommmcatt[/re]: No! It’s a conjunction so the sentence could be written “Thanks for being better at grammar than I (am).” Saying “Thanks for being better at grammar than me” could be implied to mean we are better at grammar than we are at (being) her/the speaker/Juli.

Come here a minute February 11, 2010 at 12:56 pm

Sit up straight!

Mr Blifil February 11, 2010 at 1:05 pm

Oh and a special thank you for those of us who have long entertained fantasies of lying down with Juli on a field of pretzels and lightbulbs, and whatever those poop shapes are, I think they are potatoes and I would not actually like to lie down on those of course.

Strongy O February 11, 2010 at 1:05 pm

Shit fuck. This is weak.

Later Juli. You were one of the best 5 current Wonkette editors of all timez!

Oh, and tell Wollcott to blog more about media and politics and a LOT less about ballet and opera and ‘birding’ (whatever that is).

Bon chance, Juli! We’ll miss your meta-witty and meta-grammatical commentary on the meta events of the day. You may need to dumb it down a little for the poor slobs over at VF, though. Graydon Carter – sheesh…

BlueStateLibtard February 11, 2010 at 2:28 pm

Well, I’m sure you’ve learned a lot here; well maybe not, but I’m sure your vocabularly of bad words has been considerably expanded from just reading the comments here. Thanks for the laughs and best of luck.

J February 11, 2010 at 2:33 pm

Of course, you realize this means you’re going to have to force a smile on your face when you bump into Wolcott at the coffee machine and he launches into one of his stories about what the cats did last night, and the ballet thing he’s going to, and how you really have to catch the Rita Hayward marathon on TCM on Tuesday.

Tommmcatt February 11, 2010 at 2:44 pm


Still “You” (subject) are better than “Me” (object). Would you say “You are better than we” if the object was plural? No, you would say “You are better than us”.

We can agree to disagree, as long as you admit I’m right.

First they came for the Cox, and I did nothing, because now she’s a Playboy contributer or something, and “Cox contribute to Playboy” is the best headline, ever.

Then they came for the Weiner, and I did nothing, even though Wonkette without the Weiner is, like, half a Wonkette.

Then, they came for me, and I was out of hilarious dick jokes, so nobody really cared.

Also: We’ll miss you Juli!

MzNicky February 11, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Would you say “You are better than we” if the object was plural? No, you would say “You are better than us”.

You mean YOU would say that. And you still would be incorrect. The “object,” as you call it, in this case is not a direct object, but rather, the subject of the implied “we are.” As in, “You are better than we [are]“.

Sheesh! And I had a public school education for crissakes. Of course it was about 100 years ago, when English teachers made you memorize pronoun cases and stuff, but still.

Ms. Weiner (a particularly evocative familial name for a princess of the persuasion), in the new decade virtual employment can be gainful, as you demonstrate. Mazel tov!

Don’t make we run this by the proofer here, dammit…

Lefty Lucy February 11, 2010 at 4:55 pm

Congratulations, Juli! You will be a welcome breath of fresh air amid the fashion porn and aging boomer angst.

JokerMon February 11, 2010 at 5:13 pm

well congrats to all of you for not saying you’d hit it –
no, really….

El Pinche February 11, 2010 at 5:23 pm

[re=511671]JokerMon[/re]: We’re just all exhausted from all the fapfapfap’ing.

thefrontpage February 11, 2010 at 5:26 pm

What is Hannity Fare? And why would anyone work there?

Goodbye, Juli, and thanks for all the fish!

thefrontpage February 11, 2010 at 5:27 pm

I’d hit it!

Thank you.

wheelie February 11, 2010 at 5:28 pm

So long Juli and thanks for all the jokes!

Tell Graydon Carter that he looks like Michael Winner these days, only not as pervy.

I realize it’s selfish to say so, but it’s still sad to see excellent and witty writers leave for greener pastures among the pros. Wonkette will be just that much less of a snarkatorium without you.

natteringnabomb February 11, 2010 at 5:36 pm

I is sayin this is a bummer as you am the best.I hope they don’t photo-shop your byline pic.

thesheriffisnear February 11, 2010 at 5:42 pm

I feel almost as bad as after the last Monk episode. Almost. Vaya con snark.

bitchincamaro February 11, 2010 at 5:54 pm

If we commenters are fuses, you dear Juli have been our spark blowtorch. Sure, go make some scratch now, your job is done, here. xoxo

P.S.: Using “me” instead of the brain-dead “myself” = one brainy broad. Huzzah!

WickedWitch February 11, 2010 at 5:55 pm

No alt-text? Nothing like “It’s been real, bitches”??

Come on JIM… hook the readers up!

WadISay February 11, 2010 at 6:01 pm

Did you check to see if there’s a dress code for bloggers at VF? Good luck, hugs, thanks for the LULZ.

bitchincamaro February 11, 2010 at 6:22 pm

On second thought, could this be a clever Wonkette ruse to flush out the thousands of lurkers and grammar Nazis at this url? Amirite? Pls?

Jukesgrrl February 11, 2010 at 6:25 pm

All the best to you, Juli, from your grammar policegrrl. Don’t worry about that subject at VF. If they don’t like something you write, just show ‘em your tits — Grayson loves that.

And do you get the extra points for that lovely Milton on the hanger, or is that Jim’s contribution? If so, for your parting shot feel free to tell him there’s a comma after “woods.”


FlipOffResearch February 11, 2010 at 6:26 pm

Good luck Juli. Thanks for all the laughs. I bookmarked that site, it looks a little dry. I’m sure you’ll spice it up.

rocktonsammy February 11, 2010 at 6:37 pm


Hitchens is still at Vanity Fair, so yes.

Dick jokes would seem appropriate.

teebob2000 February 11, 2010 at 6:41 pm

[re=511627]rottenart[/re]: Fetuses! That’s what those are! Makes perfect sense now.

DustBowlBlues February 11, 2010 at 6:56 pm

Welcome, g*damn fuck. I thought everyone was leaving for a minute. GQ for the first wonkette, now VF for Juli. What’s up for Sara?

Too bad that nobody seems to want the men around here.

balsa_wood February 11, 2010 at 7:13 pm

Thank you, Feisty McZooeyDeschanelCatPower, for your wonderful work and hairdo.

Radiotherapy February 11, 2010 at 7:38 pm

There is plenty of radio ugly out there,
but, Juli, you are blogosphere pretty.

Rock on and GL.

rocktonsammy February 11, 2010 at 7:59 pm

Seems to be a a ploy to bring more readers to whatever paper shes going to.

shadowMark February 11, 2010 at 8:09 pm

[re=511762]rocktonsammy[/re]: Juli’s going to be writing for one of those places Levi Johnston writes for–Levi Johnston: “Me and Mrs. Palin”–but not the place Levi walks around naked.

blogslut February 11, 2010 at 8:11 pm

Thanks for adding to teh funny girl power on Wonkette, Juli!

sra February 11, 2010 at 8:11 pm


not_very_snarky February 11, 2010 at 8:18 pm

WAIT! Does this mean Wonkette will now be Weiner-less? Weiner is the only reason I read wonkette. Its not like Ginger, Beardy, Babymaker or those not-worthy-of-mentioning interns can compensate for Weiner time.

Thurston February 11, 2010 at 8:45 pm

jeez, is this girl freakin cute or what?!?

hiphophitler February 11, 2010 at 11:48 pm

Juli, I just want you to know that all that disgusting horn-dog shit I wrote when you first came on board that got me in so much trouble with Newell– well I meant it all sincerely. Good luck at VF. (BTW, I love the whole 60s straight hair Janis Ian thing.)

DC Hates Me February 12, 2010 at 1:43 am

Good luck and remember: funny pictures need funny captions. This helps people to understand why pictures exist.

Prommie February 12, 2010 at 10:29 am

Juli is a very young! Are you legal, even, Juli? I feel dirty for drooling at you. How can such a young be so smart and witty? It took me decades to become the drole raconteur you all know and love. Now I feel like an underachieving loser, again.

Gnaeus February 12, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Bye, Juli. I will miss your references to classical literature interspersed with references to buttsecks and handy js.

S.Luggo February 12, 2010 at 3:37 pm

Have you been kicked out of your Barnard dorm room yet?

peggynoonansrickshaw February 12, 2010 at 4:19 pm

omg take this picture down before Goldberg sees it.

house of the blue lights February 12, 2010 at 4:27 pm

Count on it, you’ve been shoved aside to make room for Baby K. Bastards.

Escape Goat Nation February 12, 2010 at 4:41 pm

I just wanted to look at your picture again.
Yep, you’re still cute as a bug’s ear…and I don’t say that to just anyone.

102415 February 13, 2010 at 2:08 am

Goodbye and good luck and come back and comment once in awhile.

Beowoof February 16, 2010 at 4:17 pm

In my role as a dirty old man, I have to say I will miss the hot young Juli, ah makes me reminisce about my younger days when hot young women would still talk to me. Now it is just dirty looks for the learing old woof. Ah sigh but what where talking about again?

Good luck Juli.
