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

      1. 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.

  2. Worthly Wokette Skum

    My favorite sign from HuffPo, carried by Zombie:

    What do we want?
    When do we want it?

    1. jus_wonderin

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

    "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.

    1. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. notreelyhelping

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

  6. chascates

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

  7. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. 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"?)

        1. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

    1. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

    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?

    1. 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".

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

    2. 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.
