The talent-pool demons at Vanity Fair stole away our Juli Weiner last year, and then they made her blog the same kind of stuff she blogged for Wonkette, but she had to work at the bottom of an elevator shaft beneath the Conde Nast cafeteria’s dumpster chute. It was terrible. Also, David Denby was always coming over from his “office at the New Yorker” (the neighboring garbage chute) to try to make her say bad things about Anthony Lane (never going to happen). Anyway, Juli’s in the print issue hitting newsstands this week!

Go Meg McCabe!

Yes, she’s writing about your favorite subject, the Palins. [Vanity Fair]

    "Intelligence Report" about the Palins and Kardashians? This is going to be a very brief article.
    Congrats, Juli! I look forward to reading your articles.

  • Oblios_Cap

    You can take the Weiner outta Wonkette and apparently you can put it in Vanity Fair.

    But can you take the Wonkette out of the Weiner?

  • BaldarTFlagass
    • Trinket

      I think they mean the napkin company.

    • Not that Vanity Fair… or that other Vanity Fair but this Vanity Fair.

      • OzoneTom

        Which one is Juli writing for?

        • I believe that's her playing in the sink.

          I wish she'd play with my sink.

  • Sophist [APPLESAUCE]

    An article about the Palins in Vanity Fair? Sounds about right.

    • V572625694

      William Thackery approves of this editorial selection.

    • But will it be Fair and Balanced? hope not

      And way to go Juli !!

    • __kth__

      Yeah, if the protagonist were named Becky Dull!

  • SorosBot

    Yay for Juli! I feel sorry for how most of her commenters over at VF are assholes, with lots of right-wingers and overly serious types like this one angry that she made fun of Charlie Sheen:

    "Ha, ha. Not. This is an incredibly sophomoric and insensitive piece. Sheen is obviously -to anyone with brain- seriously mentally ill. Anyone who's been around it can tell but all the rest seem to think it's fodder for poor writing, gloating and tasteless humor. Grow up girlfriend."

    • DaRooster

      "Mentally ill?"
      Hmm… He alters his state of mind with things that he obviously finds enjoyable and can afford to do so. Sure sometimes he gets carried away with his partying and it gets him in some hot water…
      But, he don't shoot no wolves from a helicopter so he doesn't actually have to FACE any danger… he doesn't sell out his elected position to billionaires and say, "Fuck you low life Middle-Class workin' folk… and when he wants to have sex with someone ELSE, he's not cheating on his wife (well anymore).
      Yep, He's mentally ill.

    • not that Dewey

      Mika Brzezinski is an anonymous commenter at Vanity Fair? Who knew?

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Love ya, Jules, but I already get Palin overload from Teh Wonketts and the less I know about the Kardashians, the better..

    • Texan_Bulldog

      Amen, caveman, amen.

  • V572625694

    Good luck, Juli, and enjoy the legendarily lavish emoluments of being a Condé Nast staffer!

  • qwerty42

    Back when we used to get links to Juli's posts, I noticed a lot of her readers seemed …. clueless? … "challenged"? Anyway, best wishes to her!

    • Wonkette has conditioned me to hover my mouse over pictures to see if amusing text pops up and then scroll down to the comments. I've learned a couple of things: alt-text is a rare thing and amusing commenters simply do not exist outside of the Wonket.

  • chascates

    I still get teary-eyed when I think of the kids getting all grown up and moving away. SKS, Newell, Juli. It seems like it was just yesterday when they were writing about ass-fucking.

  • nounverb911

    Being in the print edition is great, but will it help her get a table at "The Monkey Bar"?

  • SayItWithWookies has a print edition too? Well congrats anyway, Juli!

  • More likely Mad Magazine.

  • Congrats Juli!

  • Serolf_Divad

    You obviously haven't surfed over to Fox Nation, lately.

    • Sophist [APPLESAUCE]

      Fox Nation may be stupid, but it is not, in any sense of the word, "fair".

      • PocketsTheClown

        Fox Nation is Stupid Yelling misspelled. You betcha!

  • MinAgain

    Cool. In honor of the occasion, I'm wearing Vanity Fair underwear.

  • Texan_Bulldog

    Yes, since Sully is leaving for the Daily Beast in April. Somehow have a hard time picturing Ken getting along with Meagan McCardle–the Atlantic's resident KLo (without the Jabba the Hut-esqueness, though).

    • horsedreamer_1

      A pampered, pompous Irish-American with a trust-fund? If not for knowing her politics, I'd swear Meagan was a Kennedy.

  • superdave


  • kilgoretrout2

    This is one weiner that's on the rise.

    Just uhhh…stay away from playgrounds.

  • LionelHutzEsq

    Weren't both the Palins and Kardashians alien races on Star Trek?

    • Fare la Volpe

      Yeah, the Palins were those small furry things that were born pregnant.

      • LionelHutzEsq

        I get so confused by Conservatives. I thought that Christine O'Donnell was the furry one.

    • Steverino247

      "Tribbles" will be the next Palin baby name, then.

  • chickensmack

    Vanity Fair wins for Chris Hitchens and E. Graydon Carter. Juli wins for being near these awesomes.

  • Extemporanus

    Congratulations, Juli!

    Please don't forget all the little people who made your success necessary.

  • How come all the ladeez of Wonkette have been hot yet the female readers get Layne?

    • I believe the correct past participle is "laid."

    • Tommmcatt

      Yeah! And how come Jack Stuef won't show the gay readership photographs of his naked butt?


      • horsedreamer_1


    • vulpes82

      Hey, Ken's grizzly bearness gets ME hot and bothered! Of course, I'm not one of the ladeez…

  • Juli, Now that your making money could I interest you in a nice cardboard box to live in? It's prestained!

  • Tundra Grifter

    Does Juli still get to write about her husband wearing a single tube sock?

  • Gorillionaire

    Juli, honey, you look like you are just a little youngster. A sweet little innocent girl in the big city, so naive but curious and idealistic. Call me.

  • Radiotherapy

    Juli, do you need a ultrasound (transvaginal or otherwise) to prove your validity? Just wondering.

  • __kth__

    Srsly: congrats Juli if this is what you want. But if you are ever on TMZ or Best Week Ever snarking about people you should be above knowing or caring about, know that I will be weeping into my hobo beans.

  • hagajim

    Watch out for the Hard charging Weiner….good luck!

  • the_problem_child

    Happy to see an alumna made good-ish.

  • SudsMcKenzie

    Will she write about " The Kennedy's"?


    Does she still give Newell wake up calls?


  • zhubajie

    Poached? Like an egg? Or a fish?

  • vulpes82

    Well, he has the beard to replace Sully, at least.

  • I wanted to say something really crude and snarky, but after I saw the picture of her…I just couldn't do it. It wouldn't be right.
    So I guess what I'm trying to say is, Juli, I'm pullin' for you.
