  • If you’re sharing that foreclosed house with crazy grandma and your wrecked family and your loser grandchildren, you’re part of an exciting new trend we haven’t seen at this level in America for half a century. Congratulations! [Washington Post]
  • That historic now-or-never Health Care Reform thing from last year might now be decided … this weekend? Maybe this weekend. Stay excitable! [Yahoo News]

Between the Wal Mart thing and yesterday’s dollar bill-throwing-at-the-sick-guy dickface Ive had just about all I can take of my America.

freakishlystrong March 18, 2010 at 8:40 am

Given the utter coarseness of what passes for civilized behavior in this fucked up country, I guess we should be thankful the Walmart asshole used the term “black people”.

RIP Alex Chilton.

Naked Bunny with a Whip March 18, 2010 at 8:47 am

Coulda been worse. The Wal-Mart announcer could have told all the fat, ugly people to leave.

Naked Bunny with a Whip March 18, 2010 at 8:48 am

On second thought, if the announcer told all the fat, ugly people to leave, how many would have actually complained rather than pretending the announcement had nothing to do with them?

Limeylizzie March 18, 2010 at 8:50 am

Sometimes it is just hard to be snarkfilled. Also hard to explain to my family in England why I emigrated to this country. Sigh.

Ha ha, whoever that douchebag Wal*Mart stockroom knob is who got silly and grabbed the P.A. microphone has got to be absolutely pissing his pants this morning. When your li’l prank gets a minute coverage on NPR’s Morning Edition and a strong condemnation from corporate HQ, you, my friend, are fucked.

[re=532868]Limeylizzie[/re]: You came for the food, but you stayed for the freaks.

Naked Bunny with a Whip March 18, 2010 at 8:54 am

I’m just stunned that anybody was able to understand what was said over a Wal-Mart PA system.

freakishlystrong March 18, 2010 at 8:58 am

Oh yeah. And pass the mothafuckin’ bill already. Shove it down their throats.

bitchincamaro March 18, 2010 at 8:59 am

“Chiltonesque”. It’s a word. You can look it up.

Cape Clod March 18, 2010 at 9:00 am

[re=532866]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: That probably would have completely emptied the store.

Monsieur Grumpe March 18, 2010 at 9:08 am

[re=532871]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]:
Just for you Mr Naked Bunny.


bitchincamaro March 18, 2010 at 9:14 am

[re=532876]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: One of the benefeits of living in NYC is having to actually get in a car to visit a Wal-Mart. Never having done so, I rely upon your link to be in touch with Real America.

Naked Bunny with a Whip March 18, 2010 at 9:19 am

@Monsieur Grumpe: Well, now I know where my mom gets those photos she keeps emailing me.

queeraselvis v 2.0 March 18, 2010 at 9:31 am

[re=532874]Cape Clod[/re]: You read my mind. And trust me, you have no idea how right you are.

queeraselvis v 2.0 March 18, 2010 at 9:31 am

[re=532883]wendykat123[/re]: Wendykat, you’re back! Now kindly GTFO.

Redhead March 18, 2010 at 9:33 am

Well of COURSE Obama hates the jews. He is the second coming of Hitler, after all.

steverino247 March 18, 2010 at 9:33 am

[re=532876]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Well, all the ones from California you can blame on Reagan’s emptying out the psych hospitals…

Redhead March 18, 2010 at 9:34 am

[re=532905]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: When the Wonkett overloards give us a troll to play with, aren’t they supposed to give us one that plays back?

Monsieur Grumpe March 18, 2010 at 9:34 am

Years ago, Wal-Mart was constantly getting busted for labeling clothing “Made in America” when it actually was being manufactured overseas by underage slaves kidnapped from Euro-Disneyland or something. I haven’t shopped there since. Although I’ve heard that the overnight RV camping Wal-Mart Parking Lot Swinger’s Club™ is quite the party paradise if you know what I mean. Tempting no?

PlanetWingnuta March 18, 2010 at 9:50 am

[re=532883]wendykat123[/re]: SHUT UP YOUR TROLLOP!

proudgrampa March 18, 2010 at 10:06 am

[re=532907]Redhead[/re]: I am reminded of Tom Lehrer’s song:

Oh, the Protestants hate the Catholics,
And the Catholics hate the Protestants,
And the Hindus hate the Muslims,
And everybody hates the Jews.

But during National Brotherhood Week, National Brotherhood Week,
It’s National Everyone-smile-at-one-another-hood Week.
Be nice to people who
Are inferior to you.
It’s only for a week, so have no fear.
Be grateful that it doesn’t last all year!

And Wendykat’s gotta go. Also.

Ducksworthy March 18, 2010 at 10:17 am

So, NatanYahoo’s brother in law listens to Glenn Beck? That also explains why the Israeli nutjob interior minister felt free to set Joe Biden up “Israel ministry wages settlement war against U.S.”, By Mazal Mualem, Haaretz Correspondent.

Somebody should explain to the Jooish right wingers that our U.S. right wingers will only accept the Joos when they have been “perfected” in the fires if Armageddon.

guangho March 18, 2010 at 10:26 am

Everyone should leave WalMart not just black people.

proudgrampa March 18, 2010 at 10:29 am

[re=532934]Douglas1984[/re]: “People of breath???”

What the fuck.

ManchuCandidate March 18, 2010 at 10:32 am

Barry didn’t say all Jews were being dicks. He said that Iswael specifically, the RW freaks were being dicks. What happens when real anti semitism happens? It’ll be Bibi and the Anti-semite Wolf.

Overlords, more Spambots in the wire! Kill’em all

Lazy Media March 18, 2010 at 10:33 am

[re=532883]wendykat123[/re]: And the bot came back, the very next day, we thought he was a goner, but the bot came back, it just couldn’t stay away…

P Drizzle March 18, 2010 at 10:40 am

Bennie Yahoo’s shvoger is right, you know. Rahm and Axelrod are so incognito that Barry forgets they’re Jewish.

Also: I never travel far without a little Big Star.

TGY March 18, 2010 at 10:50 am

[re=532942]proudgrampa[/re]: It means ‘people who are living’, unlike ‘people not of breath’ who are obviously dead. Sort of like ‘people of color’ only not.

SayItWithWookies March 18, 2010 at 10:52 am

Multigenerational households aren’t all — they should count households where people have moved in with each other to spare some rent and pool expenses. The housing market isn’t coming back until people have jobs and can afford it — or until we completely overextend credit and find some way to socialize risk. Hey, why hasn’t anyone thought of that before?

gurukalehuru March 18, 2010 at 10:53 am

I can handle the occasional republitard sneaking in here and making comments, because we are a warblog, after all, and a warblog needs an enemy, but if the overloads should decide to swing the banhammer in the direction of the spammongers from strictly commercial, i would utter nary a word of complaint.

ttommyunger March 18, 2010 at 10:54 am

I am soooooo jealous! How convenient it must be, just think: every time someone does something you don’t like you can accuse them of having some sort of racial, ethnic or religious prejudice! As a white, anglo-saxon protestant, I feel so unempowered…Is unempowered a word? Well, that’s how I feel anyway. As far as Wall-to-Wall Fart is concerned; Sam would be spinning in his grave if he could see it now.

Mr Blifil March 18, 2010 at 11:12 am

[re=532966]gurukalehuru[/re]: The spambots are the warbloggers’ revenge. They didn’t like how shabbily George Washington, Father of Our Cuntry was handled, and this is to be our penance, pondering age gaps and trendy clothing to minimize the age gaps.

canadians for pussy March 18, 2010 at 11:17 am

wallmart is for fucktards.

you can say fuck on canadian TV is your the prime minister.

June Cleaver 2.0 March 18, 2010 at 11:24 am

I live in an upscale CT community full of doctors and lawyers, but I probably live in the poor section full of teachers. Whenever I walk into WalMart I want to ask, “Where do all these poor white people come from?” I never knew there were so many poor white people until I moved to where the rich white people live.

Redhead March 18, 2010 at 11:41 am

[re=532934]Douglas1984[/re]: ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, they’re multiplying! Wonkette, these are the wrong types of trolls!

At least we know where to buy our cheap, knock-off clothes and shoes, now that Wal-Mart kicked all the black people out and will soon explode from all the exaggerated, PC rage and fat.

June Cleaver 2.0 March 18, 2010 at 11:49 am

So eventually, we’ll be saying again, “Goodnight John Boy, goodnight Mary Ellenn, goodnight Grandpa, goodnight uncle Fester….

sati demise March 18, 2010 at 12:36 pm

[re=532987]June Cleaver 2.0[/re]: just say no, do not go to Wal Mart. Its easy. face it, Rev. Billy keeps trying to exorcise the demons from that corporate body, but the demons are too strong. We might have to get that catholic guy who keeps the demons out of the vatican.

teh_heysoos March 18, 2010 at 12:47 pm

Well, New Jersey was officially claimed as a Republican state last fall, right? I’d expect nothing less from a “red-state.”

AKAM80TheWolf March 18, 2010 at 10:12 pm


And New Jersey (like Real Amurrica) has its very own retarded South. They are not as enlightened as us North New Jersey elitists.
