  • The Conservative Political Action Conference 2011 begins today, and ends when we all have herpes! For the next three days, dozens of presidential hopefuls will compete in oratory fellatio, to prove to America that they love Ronald Reagan the most. Even Donald Trump is scheduled to give a special speech/PowerPoint presentation about his hairpiece. But are you a member of one of those Family Prayer organizations that is boycotting CPAC, because of the gays? Well, Grover Norquist says that “‘only loser people and loser organizations” boycott CPAC. But your Wonkette is not one of these loser poopyheads, so we will have 24/7 around-the-clock live coverage of all the freedom lectures and workshops (“The Ground Zero Mosque: The Second Wave of the 9/11 Attacks”), effective immediately. And evil liberal media person Dave Weigel will probably be creeping around too, since he is everywhere at the same time, like Hermione Granger. [The Hill]

    Perry's problem with the Texas Commission for the Arts is that the Commission doesn't fund enough antler and horn based art.

      " a few feral pigs, lapdogs and snakes in the grass "

      That's a very rude description of Perry's cronies. Accurate but rude.

      "Why did the lady from London fly to Philadelphia?

    You sure that butt injection happened in Philly, Riley? It looks like a three day butt injection is about to take place in D.C.

    • Weenus299

      It sounds suspicious. Philly ass implants generally include minute steak and Cheez Wiz.

  • SorosBot

    Hey, it's nice to see the back-alley ass enlargement death story get some national attention; it's all over the local news of course. Last night, my bar trivia's team name was "I like big butts, and then so I died".

    • GregComlish

      Technically you have four syllables in both "I cannot lie" and "then so I died" but the 'then-so' construction is a grammatically awkward attempt at replicating the meter. Plus it's unnatural to be placing the emphasize on this contrived "so". It might be better to stick with a simple and close enough "and then I died" rather than try to force the rhythm.

      I'm going to work on it and get back to you.

  • MrsBiggTime

    February 8, 2010: Seems like only yesterday… "Republican Gov. Rick Perry, running for re-election, claims the 'tough conservative decisions' he’s made during his tenure have been a boon to the state, resulting in surplus revenue. 'Today, we have billions in surplus,' he says in a TV ad that debuted Monday."
    But that was before he blew it all on SuperBowl hookers and meth.

    • BerkeleyBear

      If they had billions in surplus, it was only because they had hired Enron's old accounting team to run the books for the state. They were broke then and are broke now, just like every other state that didn't sell off huge chunks of its infrastructure to speculative investors who will probably go out of business after running shit into the ground.

  • Well, I came upon a douche of God
    He was stopped next to the road
    And I asked him, Tell me, where are you going?
    This he told me

    Said, I'm going down to Wash DC,
    Gonna go the great Con Party, CPAC.
    Got to get back to the lord and get my wide stance.

    We are douchbags, we are assholes,
    We are hundred year old dogma,
    And we got to get ourselves back to the power.

    • mereoblivion

      . . . And I know just who I am
      And books are for burnin'.

      We are pure white, we are frozen
      We are six-thousand-and-fourteen-year-old* losers
      And we got to rid ourselves of all the darkies.

  • HolyMaracas

    No sacred cows in Texas, except for the $31 million the state spent to host the Super Bowl.

    • Or the $425 Million in public funding for Jerry Jones' sarcophagus, I mean, Cowboyz Stadiums.

      • HolyMaracas

        And let's not even get into education cuts. Here's what Mr.$500 Haircut said yesterday:
        “Today, I’m challenging our institutions of higher education to develop bachelor’s degrees that cost no more than $10,000, including textbooks.”

        • PsycWench

          Does Mr. $500 Haircut know that a semester of books can easily cost $500? That's $2000 right there…or are the faculty members supposed to assign readings from Wikipedia?

          • CapnFatback

            Actually, in Texas, they have a pretty good program for saving money on textbooks: each student is encouraged to use the family Bible rather than buy his or her own.

        • BerkeleyBear

          "I mean, how much can it cost to print one of them fancy diplomas? $3, 4 tops? That leaves 9997 for keg parties and football."

  • PublicLuxury

    Rick Perry is a dildo? NEVER. I have a dildo and it is capable of extreme pleasure and stress release. Rick Perry is exactly the opposite!

    • ttommyunger

      Ha! Being a guy, I have no need of dildos. Of course, I do have a couple of squishy rubber twats. I call one Sarah and one Arianna. The one made in Greece is tighter and feels a couple of degrees warmer, for when I feel kinky. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

      • PublicLuxury

        Gee, Tommy maybe if you were around there would be no need for artificial devices.

        Nice to see you again, so to speak. Were you on a Caribbean cruise too? Logging on can be tricky on a ship and there is much better things to do than keeping up on American Political Slime.

        • ttommyunger

          1. Do not cruise, too many peeples. 2. Artificial devices are a Godsend, and you know it's true; however, a woman should never HAVE to buy her own drinks or make her own orgasms, unless she just feels like it. 3. I'm not Mr. Right, not Mr. Wrong. Just Mr. Fun Once in a While. Been single ten days since 1964; not a very good husband, but very good at being married. Thanks for reaching out.

          • PublicLuxury

            You realize I am just jerking your chain a bit, right? I too, am very happily married for 23 years. I am a good wife and good at being married. Hope all is well with you and your family.

          • ttommyunger

            I have no problem with you or your intercourse with me. I enjoy sparring in, and out of the ring. Don't even mind a good tussle now and again. You may be at ease with me. I can still do a young man's work, but frankly lack a young man's energy. Yank away, I find you whimsical, intelligent, well written and interesting. I won't take anything serious that is poked in fun. Don't do that “stuff” on the web, regardless; you could be a l5 year-old boy for all I know. No offense to l5 year old boys, I was one myself….in 1956.

            The reverse cowgirl position would definitely be for you. It would let you nap while your partner does the work ;)

            Want to feel really young? Volunteer at a public school to help tutor reading or math. The children keep you thinking and feeling young. Of course, the children will think you are the older than Noah.
