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

  • StillGoinGreen

    My God, My God, there is nothing sexier than a petite liberal! Take that TeaTards – NO SCOOTER REQUIRED!!

    • Crank_Tango

      and oddly enough, I would like to teabag all over her.

      • StillGoinGreen

        Sadly, I'm a little too ticklish for teabagging. But she certainly moves to the top of the list of candidates for one of those "on glasses" type videos, or so I have heard – at church.

  • metamarcisf

    Who'll be the first to photoshop this shirt onto the Kentucky Stomper?

  • PublicLuxury

    That looks a lot like Ken Layne. Perhaps he got his brazilian in the same salon as Xtine.

  • Worthly Wokette Skum

    My favorite sign from HuffPo, carried by Zombie:

    What do we want?
    When do we want it?

    • jus_wonderin

      NPR did a story and one of the sounds bytes was a group chanting "Three Word Slogan, Three Word Slogan". Love it!!

  • CrunchyKnee

    I'd hit that progressively. Also, too.

    • horsedreamer_1

      A true progressive would let her hit him.

      That is, pegging, also.

      • http://wonkette.com Clancy_Pants

        She seems like a nice girl. I'm going to let have me.

  • slappypaddy

    "which Wonkette readers did this elaborate routine?"

    them's me auntie cleanthra and me uncle sunnyside. they don't read wonkette. they thought they were coming to a beck-o-rama. they were so inflamed at being misled, they got drunk on corn syrup and drove their hoverounds into the pig pond.

    • SayItWithWookies

      Them colors don't run — they waddle or roll, but they definitely don't run.

  • Respitetini


  • Bonzos_Bed_Time

    Wait, there's snark there?

    • NorthStarSpanx

      I would think you dudes would like to Teabag? Isn't this a disappointment?

      "Don't Teabag me Bro!" Would have been a good one also. Too.

      • Bonzos_Bed_Time

        We mostly take it as a challenge.

  • Bonzos_Bed_Time

    Needs more Rascals.

  • Extemporanus

    Hey, Ken!

    Has our Wonkette heeded my suggestion to send some of those sexy-ass t-shirts to unwilling "Kentucky Two-Step" pardner Lauren Valle yet?

  • CapnFatback

    Note the hip "MTV/Batman" angle to the shot. Let's see a photographer try that at a Beck rally without slipping a disc.

  • notreelyhelping

    My favorite sign so far: the "Don't Tread on Me" snake with the caption: "Oh my God, a snake!"

    • qwerty42

      At TPM, Josh Marshall has this as his favorite

      • notreelyhelping

        That's the one. I just disremembered the caption.

    • fuflans

      that was in my top three.

    • Crank_Tango

      I've had it with these motherfucking snakes on that motherfucking flag.

  • Extemporanus

    "Also, which Wonkette readers did this elaborate routine?"

    The McCrary Brothers ride again!

  • chascates

    The 'Sarah Palin – Apocalypse 2012' shirt should be selling like hot cakes (or hot rent-boys) to the GOP leaders!

  • x111e7thst

    Delta Dawn, what's that tee shirt you have on
    Could it be a faded flag from days gone by

  • facehead

    This guy was not at the rally, but he should have been:


    Possibly the greatest costume ever (For those who don't know, this is what is known in the biz as an 'upper decker.' For those who do know …. omg grow the fuck up! ).

    BTW, I must insist, I am a simple person, and I'd love a simple shirt which simply said 'Wonkette' on it.

    • elviouslyqueer

      I'm with you, seeing as I live in the reddest of the red states and the "Don't Teabag on Me" would just be inviting trouble.

      Mind you, having a "Worthly Wokette Skum Cunt Brigade" shirt would be a fine addition to my wardrobe.

      • jus_wonderin

        Especially if it was hooded.

      • Extemporanus

        I've been kickin' around the idea of designing something along those lines for a while now.

        I mocked-up a Mouseketeer cap-meets-TruckNutz-inspired "Wonketteer" tee when the "Official Wonkette Clothing & Porn Propaganda Emporium" first opened, but I couldn't quite get it dialed-in enough to be happy with it.

        However, when "Worthly Wokette Skum Cunt Brigade" made its debut last week, I found myself re-inspired to maybe give it another shot. Well see…

        (Also: "Worthly Wokette Skum Cunt Brigade", OR "Worthly Wokette Cunt Skum Brigade"?)

        • Redhead

          You know, I would buy a Wonkette shirt in a heartbeat, IF someone could design one both worthy of representing Wonkette but at the same time acceptable to wear in public.

          Therein lies the dilemma.

    • x111e7thst

      Or the glasses. I would gladly pay extra for the glasses

    • DCValleyGirl

      PLEASE! Your minions would love to advertise the site and pay to do so!

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Could just be the angle, but while certainly more than adequate for most purposes, the breasts on our fine young libtard model here are not quite up to Snorg standards.

    • MaxUdargo

      Oh, but the luscious lips make up for so much.

      That is a damn purty mouth.

  • http://minoritybabble.blogspot.com Minoritybabble

    Dear random girl in photo, lets date. I have the same shirt! We can pretend we are twins, even when we kiss!

    LOVE ME!

    • JustPixelz

      kissing twins — ewww. save it for teamsarah.com, woudja fella.

  • Pragmatist2

    Jezuz Christ!
    Next Ken Layne will be writing a piece on HP about how his "close personal friend" Arianna (no last name needed) cured cancer while writing perhaps the greatest novel since War and Peace.
    HP approval is the first step to becoming an idiot.

    • Lascauxcaveman

      Why do you hate pictures of nice titties? Why do you hate America?

      • nappyduggs

        Titties are the only tings that America manufactures and exports anymore. Vive les tiitaes!

  • Radiotherapy

    She's an endless war, she's a hero for the lost cause
    Like a hurricane in the heart of devastation
    She's a natural disaster
    She's the last of the AmeriCAN Girls

    And cute, cute, cute.

  • TanzbodenKoenig

    I'd hit it… with my boot on her head (because of the back pains)

    • Gainsbourg69

      That made me chuckle.

  • slappypaddy

    and between the ears.

  • Office_39

    The real money behind the chicken farming industry want to keep Maryland as an unregulated toilet for chicken manure runoff. I think it only fair that an obvious victim of contaminated drinking water get a chance to actually run government

    • transfatz

      Your avatar is a howl. Isn't that from the "Stalin's Royalty Free" clip art collection CD?
      If she's a victim of unregulated chicken manure runoff they should bottle the stuff!

  • Tundra Grifter

    In your case, sounds more like base excitement.

    • Lucidamente1

      Indeed it is. Well played, sir.

      • Tundra Grifter

        Thank you!

  • Tundra Grifter

    When the t-shirt matches the sign, that's better than the carpet matching the drapes.

    So cute and smart, too! That's a deadly combination.

    As someone else said a few weeks ago, if Sarah Palin had a bright idea it would be beginner's luck.

  • Office_39

    HuffPo panicked over possible lose of cred because their buses to the rally were late. They panicked, and posted a photo of a Wonkette tshirt. I'd call this an act of contrition.

  • http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0460791/ UncleDarwin

    How is the second photo referenced — the one of the two teabaggers in patriotic tie-dye on their scooters — *not* winning the HuffPo sign photo contest?

    I realize that the rally was supposed to be all about "being reasonable," and respecting others' opinions, but that photo made me laugh harder than any of the others. All of the effort to rent the Rascals, the carefully worded and misspelled signs, and the little touches like the bottle of corn syrup make this one the winner for me. But then, I don't believe in playing nice.

  • carlgt1

    On the bright side of the election, which has already been spun as "TEA PARTY LANDSLIDE" — could Nazi Germany have come to power with tens of thousands of people ridiculing them?

    • wondering where i am

      Hey Hitler! Needs moar gooses stepping!

    • JustPixelz

      i'm sure the Repubicans will claim a 230 seat majority as a "mandate", whereas the Demoncrats current 255 seat majority is merely a "suggestion".

      • carlgt1

        well even worse, the "Demon Rats" (it's so clever even after a million times n'est-ce pas?) are going to be even more chicken if the "TEA PARTY LANDSLIDE" that the liberal media is touting comes true.

        I mean every Dem politician will be saying "well I guess 'merka really is center-right and not liberal/progressive at all" or some such BS.

        I mean hell you don't even need nutjob teabaggers in power since the Dems will use this to be even more "blue dog" won't they. I'm praying to Cthulhu that the "TEA PARTY LANDSLIDE" never comes to pass — of course in which case all the hicks will take to shooting random people they think are liberals stuffing ballot boxes etc.

        • http://protoplasm.wordpress.com Hipple, Rev. Paul T.

          I can't understand a word you are saying but I completely agree with you if you are saying our Newly Elected Congress better have obamacare repealed by Baby Jesus' Birthday or we'll hand them their heads on a platter.

    • GOPCrusher

      I think you have that backwards. The Tea Baggers are more like tens of thousands having the millions ridiculing them. Problem being, they are too stupid to realize it.

      • BarryOPotter

        Dunning-Kruger effect writ large. America. Oh fuck. Yeah…

  • DoktorZoom

    Hey! Stop objectifyin' that hot grrrl!

  • Come here a minute

    And yet I overwhelmingly feel that she would love for me to 'teabag on her'.

  • jeje82
  • jeje82
  • UW8316154

    Hot hot hot!

  • Crank_Tango

    what i want to know is when is someone gonna spray this shithole for trolls?

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/mrblifil mrblifil

    If there were ever a time to invoke "tits or GTFO" it would be now, but…I dont' know…kinda seems wrong…

  • http://protoplasm.wordpress.com Hipple, Rev. Paul T.

    Is it just me or does she look like a muslim to anyone else?

  • loquacioustunes

    Yes! Another Wonkette commenter that I would hook up with/have anal with!

  • BarryOPotter

    Oh I bet you'd like to look into that… Get in line!
