Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

            it's funny that even as a child in the '80s–granted there was some familial influence–i didn't like Reagan. or Bush. or Oliver North. or Clarence Thomas. i just kinda knew they were all asshats.

    1. Negropolis

      My high school during Spirit Week, when all of the white kids would point and enthusiastically and well-intentionedly yelled "you should wear and afro!"?

    1. horsedreamer_1

      If she wants to have an office romance, she does.

      A butt's a butt. I mean, otherwise, why do you think Larry Craig & Chief Justice Roberts don't have any naturally-born children?

    2. Guppy06

      The last time the commentariat found a Republican woman visually attractive, she ran for vice president.

    3. flamingpdog

      "But does Mr. Ross support her quest?"
      But does Mr. Ross support her chest?

      Fellow Wonkateers. Foreplay dictates that if you're going to respond to a girl, you should at least pee on her first. Haaaruurumph!

  1. Maman

    After totally trying to fuck with Rahm and LOST, the renter has decided to beat a hasty retreat. Vaya con Dios, dude… make sure you park legally all the freaking time!

  2. slithytoves

    I don't like this minimalist approach – it's too Republican: short on everything.

  3. qwerty42

    AMC used to provide a translation of The Note for those who could not endure its insufferably smug tone.

    1. V572..whatever

      Do we miss The Note? Boy not much. Remember when Halperin said the 2004 election was "John Kerry's to win"? That was pretty much the end of its credibility, which is why he shows up on the political talk shows all the time.

    2. Mahousu

      The Note does not exist.

      (I don't know if that's actually true, but I'm not about to check.)

  4. freakishlywrong

    Could that Yeas and Nays be any more of an utter, inane waste of bandwidth? Christ, who gives a fuck?

    1. Ken Cuccinelli

      I want to punch those two vacuous bimbos every time I see that little photo thumbnail of them.

    2. fartknocker

      A – fucking – men. I'm sure those two twats enjoys spending hours babbling about chiffons, jewelery and the Real Housewives of Whatdafuck.

    1. WhatTheHeck

      Wonkette is having a silicone day. You know, a filler for things of lesser substance.

  6. Blendergoathead

    Can someone travel back in time enough to choke the shithead who is allowing some ferriner's translation of Obama's speech to be heard in the background of the live feed? It's Poltergeist shit, and it's creeping me out. Foreignly.

    1. fuflans

      listening on radio, i was wondering what the hell that was and if french aliens were involved.

  7. Sophist[Kochblocker]

    Perianne Boring,

    Who is this, Tim Pawlenty's running mate?

    Pawlenty/Boring 2012?

  8. SayItWithWookies

    What the hell's a tuna cone? And if it's something that Wendy O. Williams used to wear onstage, I retract my request for knowledge.

    (And yes, I know she's dead — just keeping it retro.)

    1. mavenmaven

      Damn, I get this joke. We're old :(
      On the other hand, today's youth won't see Miley Cyrus smashing any TVs anytime soon.

  9. SorosBot

    Oh man, I miss all those old dead news sites. Oh wait, no I don't, didn't even notice they were dead because I didn't care.

  10. PabaBritannica

    This day…it's amazing…ly bad.

    Bring back Wag the Bog. Riley's not funny anymore at his new blog. Just get a fake Intern Riley. Farm it out to India or whatever.

      1. worrytron

        Ha i know! It reminds me of that old Bill Hicks routine about CNN. They keep talking about how the world is ending, famine and flood and whatnot, and i go outside and just hear the crickets. I dunno. Slow news year maybe.

  11. V572..whatever

    A sure sign that a cultural phenomenon has gone stale/jumped the shark, etc: retrospectives.

  12. horsedreamer_1

    Also: if gays are eating tuna while sharing meals with men, they're doing the gay wrong.

    1. poncho_pilot

      well, when Zuul asked what form it should take, i thought of a middle aged Kenyan Muslin. something harmless from my childhood. who knew?

  13. DustBowlBlues

    Is anyone else watching the speech? No?

    Everyone with a brain, especially our president, who is not only brilliant but understands the way the world works in the 21st. Century ("Dreams From My Father" convinced me of that) knows that the only hope for stability in the middle east is the two state solution. They know the Palestinians have a reason to be pissed, since some people showed up with a several thousand year old, deed to their land that God didn't even bother notarizing, and that we are solo in the world in our blind, unconditional support of anything the most conservative Jewish rabbi farts out, and that the borders should be put back to where they were before the Israeli Boomers (homesteaders who kept moving into Indian territory until the feds just fucking gave it to them) moved in.

    Everyone with a brain knows that. And we are the people who refer to Israeli and Israelis as that, rather than Jewish State and Jews because we know the answer to this mess isn't a religious one.

    Yeah, we all know it, but no one's going to say that. Our two political parties compete with each other for who can be the most rah-rah-Jewish State booster because of political contributions and power. And we all know that if we say the truth, we are going to be called anti-semetic and compared to Hitler.

    Still, we all know it, don't we?

    1. flamingpdog

      Are you posting on the correct blog, Dust? Soundz too reasoned, especially for the day before the day before the Fapture.

      1. DustBowlBlues

        Part of my DustBowl survival plan is to use the wonket to say truthful shit I wouldn't dare mention anywhere else.

        1. WriteyWriterton

          Helluva survival plan, that. I agree with a two-state solution, which should be Alabama and Mississippi – move out all the current occupant-morans, and move in the Palestinians. The states' average IQs would soar, and you could get decent falafel south of the Chicago Loop.

  14. DaRooster

    "The event is 6-9 p.m…."

    It's a Happy Hour… duh… not a Happy 3 Hours… typical beauty contestant…

  15. Billmatic

    Chicks that look like Monica Lewinsky need that last skill, chicks as fine as Boring tend to just move up in the world just on the barest possibility of seeing her naked.

  16. SudsMcKenzie

    Whats going on?, I was doing my morning Googling of "boobies" and I wound up here.

  17. DaRooster

    "…Woody Harrelson was spotted sitting at a table by himself…"

    Woo hoo… awesome "news" everywhere today…

  18. BZ1

    Under the heading of "People, Politics and Power" comes "Senators dine out, Harrelson at Cafe Japone"; dining out is news?

  19. crybabyboehner

    I can't wait for the double feature: "Bonin' Boring" with "Nailin' Palin" – something for the whole family!

  20. Negropolis

    Every. Fuckin'. Night.

    I used to watch him, because it's what I grew up on, but the minute he screwed Conan, I stopped watching and haven't been back sense. Fuck 'im.

  21. Negropolis

    Nobody puts Perianne in the corner…until someone in authority commands her to go to the corner, and she politely acquiesces like a good Stepford Republican.

  22. Beck_is_Trig

    Maybe Ms. Boring got a job with Dennis Ross because him being a wingnut fundie (it's my euphamism for closeted, self-hating gay) she knows she can work in a sexual harassment-free workplace? She is a hottie to be sure, but just like Palin before grifting caused her entire body to slide into a puddle for obvious reasons, any chick who works for a simpering, wingnutty fundie douchebag willingly is probably a real tight-assed bitch…but what an ass…and boobs for that matter, amiright?
