We Made a Michael Steele Hamster Dance

by Jack Stuef

Your editor is sort of drunk, and you know what? Commenter “simplyblue7″ is right: We have to give our Michael Steele GIFs and pictures and the man himself a fitting goodbye. So we will remember Michael Steele the way he would want to be remembered: We made a Hamster Dance. Scat scat scat. (Click through to see all the stupid pictures and to hear the music.)





























Let’s all pour one out for our homie.

 

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.

If I needed any further proof that some people have too much time on their hands, this would be it.

And I watched the whole thing, and have no idea how long it will take to get that tune out of my head. Weew.

noodlesalad January 15, 2011 at 5:05 am

It's time to fake hip hop music, it's time to mock the right. It's time to get things started with Michael Steele tonight! Srsly fingers crossed for Palin/Steele 12

facehead January 15, 2011 at 5:20 am

Jack, go shotgun some more Four Loko, get your A game ready, then come back and give us a kaleidoscopic Justin Bieber blingee, that's how you get the sluts!

OneDollarJuana January 15, 2011 at 10:46 am

I'd join you, but 4Loko is now illegal in Washington. Dang Nanny State!

marinmaven January 15, 2011 at 11:02 am

That stuff is nasty. Mr. Maven bought a can for New Years Eve and I gave it a sip and it was diablo urine with its bright red warning color. The smell was memorably awful. I get the whole get drunk cheaply thing, but drinking that reeks of desperation. It's the Zima of the 21st century, yo.

Gay Mexican Intern January 15, 2011 at 12:26 pm

Welp, the people I know who drink it regularly are pretty desperate, so…

Negropolis January 16, 2011 at 10:34 pm

Like most energy drinks, I bet it tastes like batteries.

neiltheblaze January 15, 2011 at 7:03 am

Oh what the hell – Steele has a new book to flog, and now he'll have time to do that. But now he'll have to pay for his own plane tickets and hotel rooms and lesbian bondage bar outings – and that's just not the Republican Way.

BerkeleyBear January 15, 2011 at 1:43 pm

What the hell are PACs for if not to pick up the tab for expenses like that. I'm sure MC Steele has one all set up and ready to go.

Negropolis January 16, 2011 at 10:37 pm

PACs, how cute. They should just call them for the slush funds they are.

ManchuCandidate January 15, 2011 at 8:23 am

This is not something one should look at while hungover. My eyes went cross eyed and I'm not sure if they're ever going to uncross.

What till Jack sobers up and finds out what he did this morning.

I stand by this. Our politics needs to be more civil. We need to communicate in Hamster Dances.

Hey, you're up! How's the head feel? I recommend some aspirin and lots of water.

Oh, I bet more than a few GOP nabobs already have lots of experience in making a hamster dance while wearing a duct-tape jumpsuit … if you know what I mean.

Monsieur_Grumpe January 15, 2011 at 8:25 am

I wonder how Steele will pad his resume for his time at the RNC?

Callyson January 15, 2011 at 6:30 pm

Publicist (for that lesbian bondage club–who ever heard of it before the Reeps got it in the papers? Er, don't answer that, actually…)
Budget Analyst (hey, that doesn't mean actually balancing a budget…)
Strategist (just because his strategy was to rely on the teabaggers who cost the Reeps the Senate doesn't mean it wasn't a strategy)
————
Making this list is fun actually…it *almost* makes me want to send the res to Steele…

Progressiveinga January 15, 2011 at 8:48 am

How do I download that tune on my ipod? Seems a perfect fit for cardio on the treadmill so I can bleed out of my eyeballs a little sooner than with the usual Black-eyed Peas mix.

Oh, Mike rises like a phoenix time after time. He'll be fine.

Yo, I love the Humble Pie reference. "30 Days in The Hole" is a great old song, one with the distinction of being the only song ever written with the lyric "greasy whore" in it. I recommend downloading it immediately.

You were still up at 3:13 AM and putting this together, and were just "sort of" drunk?

3 AM is the magical hour, its when rich people's golf courses are vandalized, ugly ugly unwanted babies are made and blog posts are posted so random that had Edward Lorenz known about them he would of probably renamed the butterfly effect.

We should blame all of the world's ills that happen in 2011 on this post.

Fcuking Republiscum. The one joy we have while they finish sucking the life out of the world for their plutocrat bosses is laughing at Michael Steele.

Somehow, I think we will have just as much fun making fun of a guy named Reince as we did Iron Mike.

Callyson January 15, 2011 at 6:34 pm

How is that name even pronounced? (I missed NPR and refuse to watch teevee news so I can preserve my remaining brain cells) Does it rhyme with "rains," as in "Idiocy rains from the RNC?"

SorosBot January 15, 2011 at 7:07 pm

According to his ad, it's apparently pronounced like "rinse", as in "wash, rinse, repeat".

That's not a joke; it's how he pronounces his own bizarre name.

DoktorZoom January 15, 2011 at 9:08 pm

He's no Rincewind the Wizard.

Well, at least the RNC has an all-white Chief now rather than Steele, who is only white on the inside.

Yeah, like a boil.

ttommyunger January 15, 2011 at 10:57 am

The RNC will no longer have a BlackHead.

harry_palmer January 15, 2011 at 10:48 am

The audio is slightly less annoying than Sarah Palin's public speaking, but only because it's better thought out.

ChessieNefercat January 15, 2011 at 3:09 pm

I was thinking along those lines myself. She really should just arrange that tune as the audio for all her appearances from now on. It miiiight hold her unfavorables where they are. Not sure anything at this point could improve her favorables.

snoopyfan2010 January 15, 2011 at 10:49 am

In case the RNC needs to be reminded:
"Racism is the belief that the genetic factors which constitute race are a primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race."

Texan_Bulldog January 15, 2011 at 11:10 am

Highly doubtful anyone in the RNC needs to be reminded how to be racist. (It's probably coded in most of their DNA.)

snoopyfan2010 January 15, 2011 at 4:53 pm

Committing a crime and knowing you're committing the crime are two different things. Some people actually think the rules don't apply to them.

OneTrueLiberal January 15, 2011 at 6:54 pm

Snoopy:

Franklin and I could not agree more with your comments. "The Rules" are, after all, human constructs that any TrueLiberal believes can be changed at will; at any time; and for any reason (or for no reason).

So if "The Rules" get in the way of our TrueLiberal beliefs, we can just ignore them.

Our First Black President, and Our Beloved Democrat Party, used just this technique recently with the Health Care Reform Bill's mandate that private citizens must buy health insurance from private insurers.

Certainly, the lower federal courts have already issued frivolous decisions to the effect that this is "unconstitutional" under "The Rules. But when the time comes, Our First Black President has Franklin's Court-Packing Scheme precedent to fall back on — to change "The Rulers Who Decide What Are 'The Rules.'"

Cordially,

Eleanor

SorosBot January 15, 2011 at 7:02 pm

Neilist:

"Democrat Party" is kind of a giveaway; the party is called the DemocratIC Party, and the former naming is only used as a slur by right-wingers.

Fuck you,

A robot

imissopus January 15, 2011 at 10:02 pm

Actually only one lower court issued a frivolous decision that the mandate is unconstitutional. Two other courts (another one in Virginia and one up in MIchigan) ruled that it IS constitutional. Nice try and thanks for playing.

Dear LionelHutzEsq;

As a true liberal, I am going to make a claim while pretending to be Elanor Roosevelt that true liberals actually hate free speech, probably by making a false equivalency between criticism and censorship.

Cordially (but not really) ,

Most certainly not Neilist

OneTrueLiberal January 15, 2011 at 9:50 pm

Dear SoroBot:

Your attempt to make "humor" out of paranoid schizophrenia and/or Multiple Personality Disorder Syndrome is extremely offensive and potentially harmful to sufferers of these extremely disabling conditions.

You may find it amusing to make mock of those whose lives are marred by these afflictions. TrueLiberals, however, do not.

Unless, of course, the victims are WingNutz or their children. Nothing is funnier to we Wonketteers than the child of a conservative politician who suffers from an genetic mental disability.

Cordially,

Eleanor

P.S. Franklin told me the most amusing story the other day: "The retarded child of an Alaskan politician crawls into a bar . . . ."

Although as Jack's music points out, Steele's term as RNC Chair was often like a hamster madly running in its wheel he did bring them the greatest jump in seats against the Prez's party since 1938. So how do the Repubicans reward such work? They fire his ass and start driving a Prebius. Say what you will, they are consistent and are even assholes towards their own.

Until today, that is!

OneTrueLiberal January 15, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Tisk. Tisk.

No TrueLiberal — as are all we Wonketters — should celebrate the fact that yet-another "Africa-American" has lost his job, and joined the ranks of America's unemployed. Minority unemployment is at an all-time high, and the trends are all negative.

There is no "humor" in another "black" being out of work – particularly given that there already are so many who are not working on the sorts of jobs that are need to support us, the "educated/white blogging class."

[Franklin just reminded me that I should note that "educated" is used above in the most . . .liberal . . . sense.]

Also, the vitriol of the comments posted, and the lack of empathy, is very, very troubling. Words Have Consequences. The slightest rhetorical misstep, or careless use of a commonplace phrase, can have a terrible impact on a susceptible mind, e.g., a "Negro" in his late middle age who has just lost his job, and faces dismal prospects because of his "race."

We are sure that none of you wants to be responsible if, because of your comments, this Mr. Steele guns down a nine-year-old girl outside of a Harlem Popeye's Chicken. (Remember: Despite all of our effects at "Gun Control," the federal government has not been able to disarm "these people.")

So, please, temper your language. "Jokes" get people killed. Be a bit more niggardly with the racial references.

Cordially,

Eleanor

OneTrueLiberal January 15, 2011 at 9:02 pm

Franklin prefers a something that he calls a "cock-tail," which he claims he invented to honor his fellow TrueLiberal Wonkette friends.

It's a mixture of:

(1) the tears of a starving, fly-specked African child dying in a mud puddle in Southern Sudan (for whom we Wonketteers feel Great Concern, but not enough to do anything meaningful about it);

(2) a splash of the hydraulic fluid from that Olds Delmont 88 in which Teddy Kennedy had that "brake failure" going over that bridge on Chappaquiddick Island;

(3) a big, big shot of Sterno strained through a cheesecloth, to honor our "Inner City" friends (Hello, Negropolis!); and

(4) Just a dash of Barney Frank's semen (for the taste!).

Served in a chilled martini glass.

Oh, and garnished with a bitter lemon peel — to reflect your personalities. (Franklin's words, not mine!)

Cheers!

Cordially.

Dear DoktorZoom:

Neither I nor Julian Childs is authorized to confirm or deny our involvement, if any, in the U.S. Intelligence Services that are:

(Check Box)

(2) Protecting TrueLiberals from RightNutz 's attempting to exercise their 1st and 2nd Amendment "rights" [ ]. (Check Box)

[Please check box as appropriate given TrueLiberal/Wonketteer level of hypocrisy at the moment.]

"We are sure that none of you wants to be responsible if, because of your comments, this Mr. Steele guns down a nine-year-old girl outside of a Harlem Popeye's Chicken."

Oh irony, now it is YOU who is the racist/ stereotyper! Repent, before ye bullets rain from ye sky!

OneTrueLiberal January 15, 2011 at 9:16 pm

Your contention that Harlem, NYC is an entirely "Negro" neighborhood nowadays reflects a racial stereotype that is deeply offensive — and inconsistent with current real estate markets:

In January 2010, The New York Times reported that in "Greater Harlem," which they defined as running from the East River to the Hudson River, from 96th Street to 155th Street, blacks ceased to be a majority of the population in 1998, with the change largely attributable to the rapid arrival of new white and Hispanic residents. The paper reported that the population of the area had grown more since 2000 than in any decade since the 1940s.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harlem

But please do not be disquieted by your ignorance: TrueLiberals don't care about the facts anyway.

In any event, I was referring to Harlem, Georgia, the home of famed comedian Oliver Hardy of Laurel & Hardy.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harlem,_Georgia

He was a large, dimwitted, clumsy weight-challenged individual. I thought the obvious connection between him and certain of our fellow TrueLiberals would be comforting.

Cordially,

Dear Star:

I am mortified — MORTIFIED! — that you have caught me violating one of the most basic tenets of TrueLiberalism, specifically, "Facts DON'T Matter."

Even worse, I actually attempted to persuade you with . . . (I hate to use this word publicly) . . . "data." (Pardon, pardon, pardon me.)

Please allow me to reassure you that, from now on, I will try not to rely on those nasty, dirty "fact" thingies. Or at worst, I will only cite to PIROOMA[[1] . . . "data" . . . (what a distaste word).

Cordially,

Footnote 1: Franklin explained that this means "Pulled It Right Out Of My Ass." It's the sort of information on which TrueLiberals rely when making all their policy decisions.

The Wonketteer Special Olympics Wheelchair Speedo Swimsuit for Franklin.

He's competing this year, and has been practicing in the pool at Warm Springs, GA.

Teddy Kennedy was giving him special diving lessons, too. I wasn't really paying attention to the description, but I think Teddy was teaching Franklin how to dive down deep enough to get to a wrecked car with a trapped secretary . . . in order to recover your wallet.

Hope to see you at the event. The physically handicapped get such support and encouragement from the cheers of the morally handicapped, don't you know.

It is always good to hear from the oppressed conservative world. In power since Nixon's inauguration they carefully avoid any accountability by constantly changing their names. Dixiecrats become Republicans. Reagan Democrats become Tea Partiers.
Conservatives become Neo-Cons. Rockefeller Repubicans become Rinos (how does a lifelong registered Republican, nominated by that Party and elected by its members become a "Republican in Name Only???). The goal is to espouse an ideology with fervor and run away from the consequences with speed.

OneTrueLiberal January 15, 2011 at 6:23 pm

Dear Recruiter:

Please cease your offensive, hurtful remarks about "libuantics."

As an initial matter, TrueLiberals care nothing for the opinions of members of the US Armed Forces, because we believe strongly in the concept of "Civilian Control Of The Military" (also known as the "Lack Of Social Responsibility Or Burden Doctrine," a well-established TrueLiberal position).

I assume that you are a military "recruiter." So we don't care about your emotional condition, "gay" or otherwise. I will say, however, that your apparent happiness with your role in killing innocent civilians, innocent children (however heavily armed), and "waging war" is Just Plain Mean.

If, however, the "gay" reference to your gender/sexual preference, allow me to point out that, as a homosexual, you have no more "right" to hold conservative opinions than Michael Steele, or any other member of his race.

The "gay" population owes the Democrat Party, and it is morally offensive and Just Plain Wrong for you not to recognize your debt.

If you a "gay" "African-American" male, the above goes in spades . . . so to speak.

Cordially,

Eleanor

SorosBot January 15, 2011 at 7:05 pm

"Civilian Control Of The Military" is a policy also known as "enshrined in the US Constitution". Why do you hate the Constitution?

Barbara_i January 15, 2011 at 5:27 pm

Sorosbot, I apologize if my Rush "mole" reference was offensive, truly. I'll delete it if you wanted me to. It would be chickenshit of me to delete it and pretend that I didn't have a part in this. Very sorry.

Was the mole over the age of consent?

And what color was the duct tape?

dogscantlookup January 16, 2011 at 1:55 am

Sad

OneTrueLiberal January 15, 2011 at 6:29 pm

Dear SorosBot:

I deeply regret that you believe that there is something "wrong" with the idea that "gay" men may stick hamsters, pack rats, voles, and other small rodents up their rectums for sexual gratification.

TrueLiberals realize that, as long as the parties involved are of the age of consent, and no duress is involved, the specifics of their sexual activities are of no public or private interest.

That said, I do no mean to imply any condemnation of sex with hamsters under the age of consent. After all, one of the tenets of TrueLiberalism is "If It Feels Good, Do It! — And Bill The State For The Consequences."

So please accept my apologies if you are a member of NAMHPRVLA (North American Man-Hamster/Pack Rat/Vole Love Association). I meant no aspersion, and fully support your lifestyle choice.

Cordially,

Eleanor

P.S. Franklin suggested I remind you that WalMart is having a sale on duct tape. It even comes in tasteful decorator colors now!!

OneTrueLiberal January 15, 2011 at 7:20 pm

Mr. Dog,

I am afraid I must correct you. The "best looking man" on [our] team is Federico del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús García Lorca:

The little Page was looking for his voice.
(King Barney Frank of Finland had it.)
In a drop of "water"
the little Page was looking for his voice — but his throat was sore.

King Barney do not want it for speaking with;
He will make an anal ring of it
so that he may wear the Page
on his little finger

In a drop of "water"
the little boy was looking for his "voice."

(The captive voice, far away,
put on Tom of Finland's clothes.)

[Pardon the translation. Did any of our Wonkette colleagues fight in the Abraham Lincoln Brigade . . for the "freedom" of the Spanish to become communist?]

Cordially,

Eleanor

OK, not that I like Mike (Hawk) Steele, or Repubs in general, but let's be realistic here. Haha. The Repub Party ought to be be sucking his little Oreo. It's no doubt a problem with perception and not performance. Or, as more likely, leadership is WAY overrated.
Hear me out:
Two years ago weren't we talking about the demise of the GOP?
Then the fucks were re-energized by the teabaggers, which is, of course, the Right wing of the GOP. Palin keeps them further alive. The party of NO was an effective strategy. Fox and fiends is gasoline on this conflagaration.
Next thing you know, they "take back the country," in November. And then, most importantly, they THEY CUT TAXES ON THE RICH.

I would say, with him, or in spite of him, these psychopaths have done pretty fucking well.
They've got Obama and the Dems on the ropes. They've pushed the whole country to the Right. So, sure, Steele is a dick, but under his watch we are way more fucked than we were two years ago.

OneDollarJuana January 15, 2011 at 1:29 pm

Unfortunately, we are going to be way more fucked-over in the near term. The programs that the progressives put in decades ago still function, shielding the poors just enough so that they can't see past the propaganda. It will take the Republicans defunding those programs to drive the country down to the point where not even Fox News can distract and dissuade the disillusioned, and discomforted, the uninvolved, unemployed, uninformed voters, the point where they see that it isn't the other poor, the non-white, the immigrants who are keeping them down, it's their belief in leaders who only believe in themselves, and never miss an opportunity to step on a face to climb a bit higher.

Those who demand tolerance the most from others (i.e., liberals)
rarely exhibit the traits themselves

OneTrueLiberal January 16, 2011 at 1:06 pm

Dear Closet:

You, regrettably, are "Unclear on the Concept."

TrueLiberals do not demand "tolerance." We demand obedience — specifically, to the Higher Morality And Greater Understanding that underlies all of our actions.

Remember, the most important part of "Conventional Wisdom" is the second word. We Are Right. "They" are Wrong. So the rules — including those governing consistency, do not apply.

Cordially,

Eleanor

Closet Lurker January 16, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Tolerance is code for obedience.

SorosBot January 16, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Those who are stupid (i.e. conservatives) think they are clever when hurling an accusation at liberals that they picked up from the right-wing hive-mind which every single other conservative in the country has already hurled, and is very easily refuted, in this case because they don't the meaning of the word "tolerance" and understand that means not judging people on inherent characteristics, such as race or sexual orientation; it is not intolerant to judge people based on what they actually do or say, such as your constant racism and homophobia.

What's you're next from your "original" thought; the old "Democrats are the real racists because Robert Byrd was in the KKK (I'm going to ignore his many, many later repudiations and apologies)".

Dear Trollz,
The stock criticisms of libtardism fall flatter than your junk after your apostolic wife slips a steady stream of salt-peter in your diet. You might have a legit bitch over at the Kos or the Saloon or wherethefuckever but here, the jokes are good and people are open to learning new things, even from poopyhead n-e-i-l-i-s-t, who way over-played his hand on the wrong day and deservedly got hanbammered. We have SOME etiquette here and don't act like you done been wronged when you get kicked out of the club for being a nuisance. Speaking of etiquette I think it proper to let trollz in on a big ol' tall drink o' my ass. Cheers fuckerz!
I've always thought of Wonkerz as a cocktail party, with emphasis on the cock and especially the tail, that I would want to be at, with what I envisioned was hostessed by the bespectacled wonkette lady icon of yore, who it was expected that guests would flirt with. Or maybe a cool bar where everybody knows your drag queen name or rap name. Wonkette, love it, love on it, OR LEAVE IT. Please. Seriously.

OT, I was reading about Bill Maher's takedown of the teahadists and the blogger (ok, it was on DK) referenced the Jon McNaughton painting, One Nation Under God, and he linked back to an old Wonkette post about it from 2009 (by that guy…what was his name?). It was a lot of fun going through the comments because a spontaneous Blingee competition had broken out and there were some sweet entries.

Ah, 2009 – when trolls still relied on Commodore 64's to get their WND and Wonkette was just out of bandwidth reach.

UW8316154 January 16, 2011 at 11:46 am

Thanks for the memories! I remember that post well, it was epic and fun. I even had some comments under my old name (before the "wonkette change") – clearly I was alot funnier when I was unemployed, drinking two bottles of sake a day, and gripped in the fist of unrelenting depression.

HurricaneAli January 16, 2011 at 2:07 pm

/snark disengaged
Eleanor, I have no idea about what happened last weekend that drove Neilist to self-ban himself from the Wonkett or what transpired afterwords, but I liked Neilist and thought he contributed to the community even if he sometimes teetered into troll territory. I remember some of other of the wise Wonkette commentariat remarked last weekend, "aren't we all trolls here?" and then there was a reference to a Firesign Theatre album and it was all fun, but that's what I think of when I'm here – Wonkette is ultimately a site for trolls – we are trolling against the things that frustrate us and make us angry like the dimwits and assholes who seem to endlessly populate our political landscape. And that's the nature of Wonkette and it doesn't seem at all surprising when some commenters go just a little too far and make a joke that's a little too close to home. That's when you apologize and then refuse to be bullied if another tries to lord it over you. Everyone makes mistakes and lawd knows I've made some bad, bad jokes in my day but I try to move on and do better next time.

- Untitled Chris Rock Is American Gigolo 2 Project be his dramatic breakout role like that guy that did the Ray Charles movie (admittedly a little weak), and

- Untitled Chris Rock and Chris Tucker as Rival Pimps Project (forced to unite to oppose new pimp in town Dave Chappelle – basically a formulaic thing you might see Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller in kind of deal).

Your suggestion that "[t]his entire blog can be shipped to Afghanistan" is deeply offensive to all TrueLiberals.

Although the Afghans are, by our standards, an uncivilized, violent, xenophobic, bigoted, sexist, fanatical, and parochial, mishmash of savage tribes, these primitive peoples are not beyond the bounds of humanity.

Exposing them to the irrationality of most of the posters in this blog would Transgress The Bounds of Human Decency; violate the United Nations Charter; constitute a Crime Against Humanity; and be Just Plain Mean.

Please be more careful about your comments in the future. Remember: "Jokes KILL!"

Both Franklin and I appreciate fully that the Transgendered have feelings, too; and that any "jokes" regarding the same have potentially lethal consequences.

I, least of all, want to encourage a 300 lb., ex-Marine, enhanced hormone therapy, pre-opt sex change patient named Lance/Loretta from beating a nine-year-old girl to death with his/her/its purse because he/she/it wanted the same "On Sale!" Brittney Spears "teddy."

A good friend of the Clintons' who suffered from depression killed himself, and evil bastards like Limbaugh actually decided to claim that they had their good friend killed, because – um, I think because of something involving Whitewater ever though that was also a slander where they had broken no law.

It was truly sickening. And to this day, I don't think any of the evil pieces of shit who promoted that slander has ever apologized to the Clintons, proving that wingnuts truly are evil scum.

OneTrueLiberal January 15, 2011 at 10:01 pm

Murder is never funny:

Vincent Walker Foster, Jr. (January 15, 1945 – July 20, 1993) was a Deputy White House Counsel during the first term of President Bill Clinton, and also a law partner and friend of Hillary Rodham Clinton. His death was ruled a suicide by multiple official investigations, but remains a subject of interest among conspiracy theorists.

And at least with Wellstone, the wingnuts used it for their own political advantage, inventing stories that his memorial service was overly politicized (it wasn't).

Now, if the Supremes eventually deem the individual mandate unconstitutional in a 5-4 decision, it will be proof that the law was a horrible idea from the get-go, and plainly a violation of the Founders' highest principles.

Whereas if the Supremes eventually find the individual mandate IS constitutional in a 5-4 decision, it's proof that an out-of-control cabal of unelected activist judges is running roughshod over the most sacred founding values of the Republic.

snoopyfan2010 January 16, 2011 at 11:01 am

I heard that if the individual mandate is ruled unconstitutional, then the public option would actually be the legal alternative. So, in a way, by trying to get rid of the individual mandate, they are opening the door for the public option. Is this true????

OneTrueLiberal January 16, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Dear UW8 and Bonzos:

Although your proposed craven appeasement of this "Neilist" person is consistent with our TrueLiberal philosophy, I don't think it will work this time.

My White House research staff as reviewed the posts of this deranged "Neilist" creature. They report that he was not banned, but canceled his own account. From the posts just before he "self-banned," he apparently got bored with what he saw as blatant hypocrisy, "Fact-Free Reasoning," and Rampant Boo-Hooing on this purportedly "snark/humor" blog.

In fact, it was Neilist's cruel attacks, and misunderstanding of the TrueLiberal Philosophy, that caused me to appear to champion our shared beliefs.

As you can see from my P Score, the response has been overwhelming. Further, I submit that the level of humor has increased substantially, even though most of the comedy was not intended by the posters. (Thank you regardless, SorosBot and Negropolis!)

Cordially,

Eleanor

4TheTurnstiles January 16, 2011 at 3:31 pm

OneTrueLiberal January 16, 2011 at 4:18 pm

Dear 4TheTurnstiles:

References to pedophilia are offensive, particularly given that some of our fellow TrueLiberal Wonketteers may have been traumatized by such a terrible event.

If you are going to attempt such tasteless "humor," please refer to some condition NOT experienced by our fellow posters, e.g.:

— Severe Mental Retar . . . (No, wait a minute) . . . .

- – Anal wart . . . (Hmmm.) . . . .

- – Complete Erectile Disf . . (No, no, hold on) . . .

- – Transgender Personality Disor . . . (Drat!) . . .

Oh, GOT it!:

– "Addiction To Facts And Logical Thought." (Newly added to the DSM-5 by our TrueLiberal colleagues in the field of psychiatry!)

Cordially,

Eleanor

P.S. "Neilist" was, as he frequently admitted, an "asshole," and a very disturbed personality. Among other things, he suffered from the genetic defect — very common in those of Australian descent — of a pathological loathing of Hypocrisy and Poseurs. So he clearly didn't belong in here.

OneTrueLiberal January 16, 2011 at 4:21 pm

I wonder if this OTL persona is actually closer to his true self: a whiner who either runs away or lashes out when he feels attacked or wronged. Maybe it's even tinged with a little bit of guilt because he knows it would have been an appropriate gesture to give the I-masturbate-to-Guns-and-Ammo shtick a break for a couple of days and the wonketeers called him on it. In any case, this new guise if fucking boring. The old Neilist, at least, came off as intelligent. This one comes off as kind of an idiot covering his idiocy with a lot of bluster.

Dear Closet Lurker:

Franklin and I are very, very disturbed by your thoughtless response to our fellow TrueLiberal, SorosBot.

If you refer his recent posts, even you should be able to see that he is becoming more and more agitated, more and more disturbed, more and more incoherent; and more and more humorless.

These are obvious "warning signs" — if not virtual guarantees — of violent, psychotic behavior. Accordingly, please IMMEDIATELY stop provoking SorosBot by such misguided attempts at humor.

Remember: "Jokes KILL!" We don't want another death nine-year-old girl on our TrueLiberal consciences. Don't put yourself into the position of feeling morally responsible when you hear that SorosBot has careened his Prius into a crowd of golfers or other Republican facists.

Cordially,

Eleanor

P.S. Franklin says I should correct part of the above. SorosBot cannot be becoming "more and more humorless," as he never was humorous in the first place. I apologize for the error, and hope no one was offended by the same.

SorosBot January 17, 2011 at 10:06 am

SheriffRoscoe January 16, 2011 at 4:52 pm

Neilist, you've grown dull and tiresome in your new persona. And whereas you used to be occasionally funny and thought provoking, you've morphed into the unofficial leader of the common trolls here on wonkett. You should have retired while you were still good.

Closet Lurker January 17, 2011 at 12:59 pm

Sari, Eleanor. I'm doing the best I kindoo.

OneTrueLiberal January 16, 2011 at 5:18 pm

Dear Sheriff:

While Franklin and I have the utmost respect for law enforcement officers — provided they do not attempt to enforce any "laws" against members of the TrueLiberal community" — we must object vigorously to your thoughtless and offensive comments against retirees and Vertically Challenged Persons.

Some of your fellow Wonketters may be "Short People" — if not in terms of their physical, then certain their moral, statute. And may of your fellow Wonketters should have been "retired" some time ago. This is why, of course, the recent Obama "Heath Care Reform Bill" contains the so-called "death panel" (a/k/a "retirement") provisions.

As to "leadership": TrueLiberals do not need "leaders," any more than do our spiritual kin, lemmings. Further, any Lemming Leader would run the risk of being wrapped in duct tape and given a guided tour of the Hon. Barney Frank's alimentary canal.

Cordially,

Eleanor

P.S. Again, I ask you NOT to keep soliciting that "Neilist" creature to return. Your admiration for his "funny and thought provoking" posts reveals a dangerous lack of orthodoxy in your TrueLiberal beliefs.

dyedwool January 16, 2011 at 6:30 pm

Agree 100%, SheriffRoscoe. This new Neilist is past his sell-by date. Sorta reminds me of "comedian" Robin Williams, and how he shoulda retired…whatever year that was, way back when, last time he was funny.

OneTrueLiberal January 16, 2011 at 6:32 pm

/snark off

Humorless Poseurs are entitled to No Mercy. They are like plague baccilli, or rats. Unless you stomp them out of existence, they multiply.

And like rats and baccilli, their strength lies in numbers. One-on-one, they lack the intellect, and the physical and moral courage, to try to enforce their unfounded, illogical, and idiotic ideas.

But let enough of them collect — or perhaps more accurately, congeal — and they start to try to enforce their Collective "Wisdom." First by way of social disapproval, and if that doesn't work, legislation. And if that doesn't work, force (albeit, government-sanctioned force).

And as to the last — The Herd always has numbers on its side. Which is why, of course, The Herd instinctively dislikes firearms, or any other force-multiplier.

Here in Wonkette-Land, most of the Humorless Poseurs are TrueLiberals. So they are the Targets of Opportunity for "assholes" like this "Neilist" creature.

He's genetically pathological on the subject — like most Australians or those of Australian descent. And the Irish-Australians are the WORST. They NEVER back off from a fight.

And if it's a losing fight — so much the BETTER! ("The minstrel boy to the war has gone/In the ranks of death you will find him," etc.)

The only good thing that one might be able to say about sociopaths like this "Neilist" is that they are True Iconoclasts. Hypocrisy, regardless of political stripe, provokes the same reaction. The color of the cape doesn't matter.

But these "bulls" are smart enough to go for the Humorless Poseur holding the cape, rather than the rag itself. And, once started, they go for blood. It's the nature of the beast — having been, throughout history, more often on the receiving end than not.

Some people don't like the goring that results. If so, they should get out of the ring. It's called "Mano-a-Mano" for a reason: The Herd isn't going to be able to help the Humorless Poseur when these Toros close in.

Respectful regards,

Vaginal Odor is serious problem, and is an inappropriate subject for attempted "humor." At any time, and particularly at Certain Times that arrive monthly. (Delicacy forbids me from saying more.)

Please keep your insensitive male chauvinistic pig comments to yourself. You are already suspect, having been seen exchanging bon mots with that psychopath "Neilist." YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!

Cordially,

Eleanor

P.S. Franklin mentioned something about "waiting until Victor Charles trips the wires and the flares go up," but he's been drinking his Barney Frank semen-laced "cock-tails" all weekend and is about as coherent as TrueLiberals usually are.

Doubt we'd even break-up the poker game if the flares go off. We've baited the punji pits with Glocks und spiels Neilist won't be able to resit.

Those Etruscans were incredibly offensive. Particularly that Lars Porsenna guy. Sounds a lot like that "Neilist" creature.

Cordially,

Eleanor

P.S. Franklin tends to quote Lord Macaulay when he's drunk. Which is usually, as are all TrueLiberals:

"For ever man upon this earth,
Death cometh soon or late.
But can a man die better,
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods"?

:::Hic! Haec! Hoc!:::

There he goes again. "Steward! Another 'cock-tail' for the President!"

Whatever else I ever thought about Neilist, at least I read his posts. Laughed at some, even. This new gig is tired, and the only wonkette poster I scroll past. Sad waste of space and maybe even talent.

Ah, horseshit. The Republicans use the democratic process to chose their candidates, as do all the major US parties. "Democratic" is an adjective, therefore all US parties are "democratic" parties.

The democrats can call themselves whatever they want, but in fact their party contains "democrats", not "democratics". Lets use the party symbols, for instance. Elephant Party. Jackass Party, not the jackassish party (although, that does fit too, I suppose).

So, democrat party. Kiss my ass.

Hey, picklepuss, you ever figure out what it means when a union becomes an "entity in and of itself"?

di_da_is_alpha January 17, 2011 at 2:56 am

Burrrrrrn? No, that would be a Richard Pryor joke. "Gluuug, gluuug, gluuuug" is used for Chappaquiddick jokes.

Hey, ya ever wonder, just for shits and grins, if maybe it wasn't an accident? Ok, ok, but humor me, will ya?

Ted gets drunk, gets too frisky, Mary-Jo doesn't want to go there, Ted won't stop, she starts to scream, and in his panic to keep her quiet, smothers her. Then, he drives the car off the bridge to cover up the crime. Well?

It would explain why he didn't immediately go for help . And you know the cops wouldn't be above covering up something like that. Just look at that left-wing nut that killed those folks in Alabama, then it turns out that she killed her brother in Massachusetts years earlier, but the cops covered up the murder. And hell, she wasn't even a Kennedy!

I know, it probably happened just like the history books tell us, and Ted was just a chickenshit idiot and not a murderer, but it would make a good crime novel, don't cha think?
