    What, no troll posts yet? I'm disappointed.

      Dear Banana:

      Since I have no innate sense of humor of my own, I'm going to try to enrage you by posting as a childish cartoon version of a Real Liberal & put all of my projecting, outdated, infantile slurs on the left into the mouth of a character who claims to be progressive, thereby guaranteeing that nobody will ever take anything I have to say here seriously ever again.

      Also, even though I post under a woman's name, I'm actually a 375-pound diabetic man who likes to wear women's underwear while watching Fox & Friends.


      • MarshallBanana

        That was epic.

        • lulzmonger

          Wow, my second follower! Thanks!
          Only eight more & I get a free side order of Freedom Fries!

      • Negropolis

        Twas a thing of beauty, that was.

  • dr_giraud

    Palin's CRASH2 would be a sequel to both Crash films, and would feature car-crash hate-sex with with illegal aliens.

    • Jason_inthe_Peg

      So yeah ummmm.

      Do you think Cronenberg would be interested in reading my script?

  • JoshuaNorton

    What's the difference between Rush Limbaugh and a bowling ball?

    You could eat a bowling ball if you had to.


    • StillGoinGreen

      I thought you were going to say a bowling ball doesn't have putrefied, hate-filled shit spewing out of every hole.

    • MinAgain


      You don't mind putting your fingers in a bowling ball's holes.

  • facehead

    Reince Priebus just got elected as head of the RNC, which is shocking, as it is unclear how he survived grade school.

  • Crank_Tango

    "her Wasilla meth factory."


    or is it blood slander, I often confuse the two…

    • OneDollarJuana

      In general, blood 'slander' is what Sarah did, 'cuz she said it. If she had written it down, an unlikely possibility, that would have been blood 'libel'.

  • EdFlintstone

    Well at least Sarah will have to answer tough questions when she goes on Hannity. Jeebus H., Kim Jong il faces tougher questions from the North Korean press. The way her handlers scrub facebook of any non-fawning posts and she released the video of vimeo, where you couldn't comment, she would fit perfect in a censored communitst China.

    • Texan_Bulldog

      I imagine this is Hannity's hard-hitting question list:

      1. Why do you LOVE America so much?
      2. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
      3. Is Todd as awesome as you are?
      4. Why are Democrats Satan's spawn?
      5. Can you give me a recipe for moose stew?

      • AutomaticPilot

        Favorite flavor of ice cream: all of them

      • Radiotherapy

        1. Why do you LOVE America so much?

        Well, Sean, it's all about freedom, and protecting ourselves from attacks, like the attacks against me and my family. Our founding Fathers would never tolerate this situation, and that's why we have the 1st Amendment.

        2. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

        As a constitutional conservative, and totally appreciating American exceptionalism I would have to say Cherry Blueberry Vanilla…. the good old red, white and blue. Even up here in the cold, Sean, we appreciate the hard working Americans that have made this "the greatest country on earth."

        3. Is Todd as awesome as you are?

        Ya know, Todd is taking care of the kids right now. He feels the assault of the liberal media on our family as much as anyone. He won't sit down and shut up either.

        • Bluestatelibel

          Jesus, that was good, and deserves to be a Wonkette post on its own. I cannot upfist you enough, comrade.

      • Radiotherapy

        4. Why are Democrats Satan's spawn?

        Sean, it was the liberal Democrat media, people like Keith Olberman, who produced a map hours after the tragedy, that I had nothing to do with, produced a map with nothing more that some crosshairs. They are the ones who are culpable.

        5. Can you give me a recipe for moose stew?

        Haha, Sean, First you have to shoot the moose. That's why the Second Amendment is what we support. Ask Greta how much she loved the stew. (Blithe, skin-crawling laughter ensues.)

        • Texan_Bulldog

          Good stuff. Those answers are eerily spot on.

      • http://www.marionstein.net MarionNYNY

        I like this game:

        What makes you such an awesome Mom?
        Why do LOVE the Jews so much?
        How is Todd and the rest of your beautiful family coping with the tragedy?

    • EdFlintstone

      communist too also

    • easynewz

      6. Ronald Reagan. Greatest president OR greatest president ever?

  • SorosBot

    We've also gotten a new resident troll here (also an old one under a new account), and he's even defended Sarah's antisemitic comparison of criticizing her to blood libel, and the desire to re-legalize child labor, so we know that with the Breitbart faction of the right-wing, a conservative could publicly eat a baby and they'd still rush out to defend them and attack liberals for daring to suggest that eating babies is wrong.

    • HempDogbane

      What color baby?

      • SorosBot


        • Negropolis

          Actually, I think urban is a flavor instead of a color.

    • OneDollarJuana

      People eat babies all the time. Veal cutlets. Baby spinach. Fertilized eggs. Caviar. Mmmm!

      And there's too many people anyway. Jonathan Swift was right in his "Modest Proposal".

  • MinAgain

    Has it been a week, already? My, how time flies when you're having guns.

    • x111e7thst

      White, Female, Episcopalian, Democrat, Trekkie – I have to ask; is that in ascending order of importance?

  • SayItWithWookies

    Actually it would make more sense if Rush's billboard were in Tuscany — those Italians have a penchant for baldheaded blowhards with authoritarian tendencies.

  • http://wonkette.com/ weejee

    Big thumbs up for Daniel Hernandez and his fellow heroes from Saturday's sadness.

    Also a big thumbs up for Barry on Wednesday for showing 'Murica and the world that there is a thinking adult living in the White House.

  • http://littlewanking.blogspot.com/ harry_palmer

    We can only hope that was a snuff film Sarah made, as in she might have finally killed her own career as a grifter.

    • OneDollarJuana

      Doubt it. Sarah Palin is a wonderful gift to the MSM, and they aren't going to let her go unless she bites the hands that feed her, which she hasn't.

  • Radiotherapy

    Albatross tears.

  • edgydrifter

    Loughner: Antisemantic
    Palin: Antisemitic
    Like peas in a pod, those two.

    • natoslug

      Will he call her Jennie?

  • Beetagger

    I'm sorry… I came here because I thought it said 'Sarah Palin's Crush Videos."
    Never mind.

  • chascates

    Fasten your seat belts. It's going to be a bumpy two years.

  • Steverino247

    Well, it's been a real nasty week, hasn't it? Thanks for helping others stay sane through sick humor, all of you. Join with me in wishing the week's victims a speedy recovery and the new trolls a weekend without Cheetos residue on their dicks.

    (And isn't the Reince Priebus a new hybrid from Toyota?)

    • http://wonkette.com Salacious Crumb

      a Reince Priebus? That'll run you an extra $1000 at an RNC Fundraiser/Bondage party.

      • OneDollarJuana

        Reince Priebus = Ursine Crib Pee.

        (hats off to the internet anagram server)

  • Rotundo_

    We start the new year with a congressperson getting shot, a promising young child killed along with several innocent adults. What fresh hell will happen next? I think I'm going to invest in family passports, canned food and shotgun shells this year.

  • http://www.bluesausageinfant.com sodomite

    Please, can we just stop here? I don't want another week.

  • sati_demise

    Someone please, stop the Koch brothers, I want to get off.

    Riding populace anger is not all that fun anymore.

  • ttommyunger

    Not to worry, Franklin Graham, son of Billy "Never Met a War I Didn't Like" Graham, has publicly come to Sarah's defense… Odd, Franklin is as obtuse and wrong-headed as his daddy, but comes off as a much bigger douche. Maybe the old man will croak soon and then, as they say, "Like father, like son." hopefully.

    • ShaveTheWhales

      I think your "odd" observation may stem from the fact that you are even older than I.

      My parents were not strongly religious, but when I was growing up it was pretty much an article of faith that Billy was a good man. (Actually, while I was growing up, he may have been, give or take). I didn't change my opinion of Billy until his conjugal visits with Nixon became too obvious.

      There's probably still a residual patina of "saintliness" surrounding what few of my neurons still refer to Billy the G. I know that on the infrequent occurrences when he says anything (wait, is he still alive?), I'm disappointed, which implies that at some level I was expecting better.

      Franklin, meh. No aura of sanctity. Just another evangelical huckster with a side order of selectively directed, and relentlessly publicized, charity.

      As they don't say, "Douche el padre, douche el hijo".

      • ttommyunger

        In my opinion, a calling to preach the Gospel is the highest possible calling for a man. For one who professes to have this calling to soil his tongue and squander his time and talent on other activities (politics, raising money, social causes) is anathema, in my eyes. I am not a religious man, I read my Bible, pray and sing songs of praise (out loud) daily; but I am not a good person (not fishing here) or a religious one. I do not think the Bible is the infallible word or work of God, and I don't dwell on whether I may or may not have some existence after death. I believe most men of the cloth are in it for all the wrong reasons and that is part of the problem with religion. Billy was a cruel and judgmental person who had many wonderful gifts. His son is an opportunistic asshole who “saw the light” when he reached bottom in his own personal life. He lacks his father's charisma, thankfully, but still can (and does) trade on his name heavily. He carries on with his daddy's judgmental militaristic view of Evangelism. He is not satisfied to “know THE way” he must condemn with extreme prejudice all other ways. What has, and is being done by man in the name of God/Religion is vile beyond description and I do not approve or participate. I am not better than anyone, I'm worse than most and my heroes are few. I'll be 70 in March, so I may be older than you. I enjoy your posts and respect your views. BTW, Billy is still alive, just barely.

        • PublicLuxury

          None of the evangelist are ambassadors of Christ. So much fraud, scandal and abusive behaviors stick to these 'men' like a pungent odor.

          I will give them only one credit. They are remarkably adept at scrubbing the Internet of a lot of their controversial crap, especially Franklin Graham.

          • ttommyunger

            Did not know my responses were open to all. No big deal, just didn't know. I agree with your opinion. I wouldn't piss on 99 percent of them if they were on-fucking-fire.

          • PublicLuxury

            It is interesting that this software doesn't support private messages. I am not easily offended. Some that post seem to get excited at times. I tease people and poke fun just like everybody on this site. Oh well.

            When I lived in Arkansas, another story there, I remember a huge scandal dealing with Franklin's wife, Jane, having to do with texting students, using the private plane for family trips to the Caribbean andsome other misuse of University funds. It brought Daddy out of retirement to sweep it under the carpet. David Green, of Hobby Lobby fame, bailed the Grahams out with his personal funds. Franklin had to step down, family friend David Green took over the University/College. Do I remember the name of that fine institution? Hell no. It disgusted me so much I scrubbed the Grahams out of my interest zone.

            Damn it. See what you have done? Now I'm thinking of pond scum. You're at fault, Tommy.

          • ttommyunger

            I accept the blame gladly, it is a worthy cause. Such people need forgetting. I have no interest in being secretive, anyone who likes may contact me @ ttommyunger@mac.com. My life is an open (and extremely dull) book. Check it out on fb at ttommyunger or thomas unger. I don't mind others reading my replies, I would just feel better knowing I was boring the shit out of only one person at a time with my brain droppings rather than untold multitudes.

  • ShaveTheWhales

    BFruh — I glanced right past it the first time through, but the headline on this post deserves a place in the Wonkette Hall of Fame.

    • Radiotherapy

      I agree. BFruh hit the bullseye on that one.

  • Negropolis

    What is this "Tuscan" you keep referring to? Is it the thing Wonkbot uses to do her (Mexican) taxes?

    • sarjo

      Yes, the Tuscan tragedy: a lovely countryside ruined by rich foreigners grabbing up the land and causing prices to rise madly. I have been so sad about this Tuscan thing! I praise our wise president's awareness and empathy with the Tuscan tragedy!

      • Plowmon

        But Chris Dodd and Barney Frank really want to help the disadvantaged buy their own overpriced Tuscan estate…

    • Negropolis

      But, now, what is this "Tuscon" you keep referring to? It is some alien race on Star Trek? Is it some English biscuit you have with high tea? Some unnecessary and useless app?

      **I know I'm being a jerk, but the least we can do is get the name of the city spelled correctly.**

  • PublicLuxury

    If Sarah became our preznit she would be weak, setting the USA up for a takeover by the antichrist or Newt Gringrich.
