Naughty Wingnuts Put Bad Word On Dick Durbin’s Wikipedia Page

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

Zero points for originality, however.RUH-ROH. Can you spot it?! The wicked little Internet trolls are fiddling around on their favorite source of Official History, Wikipedia, to try to embarrass Senator Dick Durbin. We have to admit — it’s a little bit mysterious why anyone would want to pick on this rather harmless lefty Illinois Senator who usually ambles around Congress advocating for moderate reforms on poison levels in children’s toys and more money for brain-damaged veterans. UNLESS, maybe, it has something to do with Durbin’s recent crusade against greedy bank executives?

Probably Wikipedia’s gatekeeper-editor wizard-folk can figure this out, but for the moment the only “people” we know for sure that Dick Durbin is pissing off are the giant banks who want to just want to be able to wring a few extra dollars a month from debit card users in peace.

From The Hill:

The Illinois senator sent a letter to Wells Fargo chief John Stumpf on Wednesday, asking for an explanation as to why it is considering adding new fees for debit cards following the announcement of the bank’s 21 percent increase in third-quarter profits on Tuesday.

“Your spokesperson’s claim that Wells Fargo needs to charge all its customers an additional monthly fee of more than $3 in order to make up the ‘cost’ of providing debit cards simply does not add up,” Durbin wrote. “Instead of making up costs, your new consumer fee appears to be a plain attempt to increase your profits, even though your bank just reported third-quarter profits that hit a record high.”

The new fee, currently being tested by Wells Fargo in five states, is similar to the fee Bank of America announced following the Oct. 1 start of the Federal Reserve’s new policy on swipe fees, which cuts the amount banks can collect per transaction to an average of 24 cents from 44 cents.

And of course, there’s always the outside chance that it was just our old unemployed hobo friend Rod Blagojevich, on account of being bored and jealous. [Wikipedia/The Hill]

Wikipedia reduced to ashes in 3…2…1…

Michele_Blachmann October 19, 2011 at 7:20 pm

You think they'll bomb, nounverb? A virtual bomb, even, maybe?

RadioOcupados October 19, 2011 at 7:46 pm

Awesome avatard, M_B.
Off thread, but I was thinking maybe Little Miss Smuggypants should become a blond…you know, to boost her flagging ratings.

Michele_Blachmann October 19, 2011 at 7:53 pm

Thanks, Radio! Maybe I should blonde her … naah, I think I'll ICanHazCheezbrgr her instead.

Infrogmation October 21, 2011 at 11:48 pm

Um, what, some grade schooler briefly vandalizing a page on Wikipedia is still news??

OzoneTom October 19, 2011 at 7:08 pm

I hope that Wikipedia will be checking the IP address from which the edit was made. John Stumpf, you can run but you cannot hide.

memzilla October 19, 2011 at 8:33 pm

All IP addresses which make edits are logged by Wikipedia. The edit history on this entry indicates an ISP in southern Illinois. [Note that many IP addresses are dynamic, so not necessarily from the same person].

However, this particular IP address has been repeatedly flagged for "unconstructive comments" and vandalism over the past several months.

Wikipedia's last message to the account is: "This is your last warning. You will be blocked from editing the next time you vandalize a page, as you did with (name of entry)."

Sharkey October 19, 2011 at 10:11 pm

That's a rather vague warning though, isn't it? (name of entry) could be anything.

memzilla October 19, 2011 at 11:43 pm

[name of entry] is my redaction to refer to the last thing he edited.

kissawookiee October 19, 2011 at 10:36 pm

Praytell, where in southern Illinois? I may or may not be from there originally (fall colors! wildflowers! the persimmons! ahhh, the persimmons!).

memzilla October 19, 2011 at 11:44 pm

Where Homer and Marge live.

freddymcmurray October 20, 2011 at 5:02 am

I'm from Southern Illinois, and that town's not considered Southern Illinois… unless you live in Chicago.

mumbly_joe October 20, 2011 at 8:20 am

One of my best friends (the recently-mentioned not-voting-for-Gary-Johnson pagan science teacher) is from southern Illinois, by way of Rochester, NY. Makes for a very entertaining accent, for which I give her no end of grief.

mumbly_joe October 20, 2011 at 8:04 am

My money's on it being our spanky. If only because I'd prefer to believe there aren't two of them.

HistoriCat October 20, 2011 at 10:49 am

Bank executives don't change Wikipedia pages … they have people for that.

Fare la Volpe October 19, 2011 at 7:08 pm

Impotence, thy name is Teabag.

Frost/Nixon/Robocop October 19, 2011 at 7:09 pm

Messing with a Wikipedia page? The wingnuts have finally figured out how to troll the internet! Look out 2005! Next they're going to run around Barnes and Noble yelling, "Dumbledore dies!"

LesPaultard October 19, 2011 at 8:08 pm

Wait…..what?

imissopus October 19, 2011 at 9:03 pm

Who?

LesPaultard October 19, 2011 at 9:06 pm

Dumbledore? Say it ain't so!

UW8316154 October 20, 2011 at 12:21 am

When?

Sharkey October 19, 2011 at 9:09 pm

Dumbledore can't die… He just can't.

Lascauxcaveman October 20, 2011 at 12:35 am

Fuck-shit you assholes! Howabout a "spoiler alert" fer crissakes!?

(And DO NOT tell me what happens in the second Twilight book!!)

LettucePrey October 19, 2011 at 9:51 pm

This analogy fails. Wingnuts don't read.

PoopFilledSquadCar October 20, 2011 at 3:43 am

…and they'd probably call him 'Dickledoor' once they figure out how to punch that goddamn monkey.

Negropolis October 19, 2011 at 10:11 pm

Once they discover The Google, it's over; they'll bring heaven down on our heads when they find The Google. Lawd have mercy, don't let them get a hold of The Google.

Gleem_McShineys October 20, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Just like Anonymous, with all their elite hax0r skillz, AOLnonymous will be striking fear into the internet, turning everything into Comic Sans powerpoints.

Callyson October 19, 2011 at 7:10 pm

Anyone out there with a Wikipedia account? Who can change this to "Richard Joseph 'My Dick is Bigger than Any Teabagger's Dick' Durbin"?

poncho_pilot October 19, 2011 at 7:28 pm

if my name was Dick Durbin i'd change my middle name to Richard, as well. gives you the options of being called Richard Dick Durbin without quotes and Dick Dick Durbin. kind of like duck, duck, goose i guess.

Barrelhse October 19, 2011 at 10:10 pm

Actually, Callyson, I believe that was the original entry before the hacking.

Negropolis October 19, 2011 at 10:12 pm

How bouts "Richard 'Suck on This Baggers' Durbin"?

ProudLibunatic October 19, 2011 at 10:25 pm

My dread father-in-law's name is Dick, and believe me, there are much more original options out there.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 20, 2011 at 2:16 am

Already fixed. For some reason, there's one flaming asshole wingnut who's got a hardon for editing Durbin's Wikipedia entry (see the discussion page), and I'm guessing that vandalizing the page was his final f-u before giving up and moving on to be an asshole somewhere else.

Wiki pages that have any level of public interest are pretty well defended against the forces of Moron. (Even old Paul Revere has his guardians.)

ManchuCandidate October 19, 2011 at 7:10 pm

Stupid liebruls. I gets all my nowlage from Conservapedia bekauze it's real informashun ritten buy smurt persons and not bekauze their are lots of pages on teh ghey.

Schlafly spends more time writing about gays than I do actually sleeping with gays.

Michele_Blachmann October 19, 2011 at 7:22 pm

Hon, she spends WAY more time thinking about LGBTQ peoples' sex lives than even we do. And we're not exactly known for being shy about fucking.

Chet Kincaid October 19, 2011 at 8:59 pm

Again with the barbecues! Where's my invite?!

Michele_Blachmann October 19, 2011 at 9:18 pm

Oh, straight boys are so cute when they do that!

Tommmcattt October 19, 2011 at 9:30 pm

I've repeatedly invited you to several "events", Chet, and you've yet to come for one of them…

Michele_Blachmann October 19, 2011 at 7:21 pm

I saw that movie! Wasn't it called … Charly, or something?

Sharkey October 19, 2011 at 9:12 pm

Algernon Rising.

Michele_Blachmann October 19, 2011 at 9:17 pm

I've never seen the film, but I read the book on which it was based when I was in primary school. Flowers for Algernon, by Daniel Keyes.

Was the film any good?

Sharkey October 19, 2011 at 9:58 pm

It's funny, after I posted that stupid comment I actually wondered if "Flowers" had been made into a movie. Indeed it was. I read the book in grade school as well – it was an assignment actually.

Then I read about Robertson and Begelman, and now I want to see the movie. So, long story short, haven't seen it yet.

OC_Surf_Serf_#OWS October 19, 2011 at 7:12 pm

Since I don't use a big bank, I just send a "service fee" to Durbin's campaign.

Michele_Blachmann October 19, 2011 at 7:23 pm

Excellent idea.

KobayashiMaru October 19, 2011 at 7:13 pm

It is truly a quantum leap of intellect and creativity to go from "Dick Durbin" to "Dickhole Durbin".

Fare la Volpe October 19, 2011 at 7:16 pm

"Nobama" is just a stroke of genius.

PoopFilledSquadCar October 19, 2011 at 7:20 pm

Nah, 'Libunatic' is where it's at!!

Fare la Volpe October 19, 2011 at 7:23 pm

"Lamestream Media" will always be a knee-slapper. A-hyuk!

Pres.Libunatic October 19, 2011 at 7:55 pm

I miss the days when they called us "moonbats."

Pres.Libunatic October 19, 2011 at 7:55 pm

Indeed it is….

glamourdammerung October 19, 2011 at 7:34 pm

No one ever accuses conservatives of appreciating intelligence, let alone being intelligent.

Beowoof October 19, 2011 at 7:38 pm

The comedic stylings of most righties is about the level of Soupy Sales.

poncho_pilot October 19, 2011 at 7:40 pm

more like Thin Gruel.

Toomush_Infer October 19, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Wait! —- Soupy once said : "I resemble that remark"…

Jukesgrrl October 19, 2011 at 8:32 pm

I saw Soupy in an airport once. He was being very polite and friendly to all the people who approached him. That's more than we can say for the Speaker of Our House.

imissopus October 19, 2011 at 8:59 pm

Unless the person approaching him says, "Another martini, Mr. Speaker?"

Geminisunmars October 19, 2011 at 8:59 pm

Whadya talking about?! I grew up watching Soupy when I was in elementterry school, and he was really really really funny.

Beowoof October 19, 2011 at 11:09 pm

Loved Soupy and a pie in the face for each of the debaters on stage last night would have been the perfect evening of television entertainment. And Soupy, much like the humor above was just about 3rd grade.

Mojopo October 20, 2011 at 1:02 am

Of all the dick words they pick dickhole? There's dick bag, dick face, dickhead, no dick, etc. Unless someone was riffing on "dill hole", which came about circa Beavis and Butthead. I'm going to guess the age of your Dickipedist is over 30.

WhatTheHeck October 19, 2011 at 7:14 pm

If banks are people, then I hope those bastards can get arrested like regular people.

PoopFilledSquadCar October 19, 2011 at 7:18 pm

Wells "Fuckwad" Fargo?

Fuckwad sounds a little A-Rab to me…

Send them to bed without supper, cuz that's some 10-year-old humor right there.

Gratuitous World October 19, 2011 at 7:16 pm

PoopFilledSquadCar October 19, 2011 at 7:16 pm

Would be funnier if it were 'Richard Bruce "Dickhole" Cheney'.

Beowoof October 19, 2011 at 7:39 pm

Gets too close to being factual so teabaggers would not like the reference.

JustPixelz October 19, 2011 at 10:28 pm

Or Richard "Santorum".

Rotundo_ October 19, 2011 at 7:16 pm

The fresh smell of republican snark, the brilliant wit, you can almost imagine the scent of cheetos, flop sweat and cum and basement mildew welling up around you as you read that. The poetry and prose of dumb fucks, ahhhh…

Toomush_Infer October 19, 2011 at 8:25 pm

I think you're describing my basement ghetto office….

Jukesgrrl October 19, 2011 at 8:34 pm

Well, most of them get paid for it, which is more than you can say about my posts.

OneYieldRegular October 19, 2011 at 7:18 pm

That's very funny. It's also funny how being called sophomoric names wouldn't stop me from closing my accounts at Wells Fargo.

weejee October 19, 2011 at 7:19 pm

Ken will fix Romney's Wikipage to Mittens in 3, 2, 1…

user-of-owls October 19, 2011 at 8:55 pm

I still don't understand why Willard's nickname from Massachusetts never caught on here: Mittwit

Negropolis October 19, 2011 at 10:20 pm

Haha! That's cute. You think Ken would vandalizing Mitt's page with something as innocent as Mittens. lol

Wonderthing October 19, 2011 at 7:21 pm

I'll see your "dickhole" and raise you two "santorums", you filthy whores.

marinmaven October 19, 2011 at 8:46 pm

Most people will not even know Senator Durbin had his wikipedia entry fooled with, but Rick Santorum's grandchildren will be googling the meaning of the family moniker for decades to come thanks to the Karmic wheel that is Google.

ProudLibunatic October 19, 2011 at 10:33 pm

Yep.
The santorum thing is genius. Pure genius.

RadioOcupados October 19, 2011 at 7:23 pm

Jeesh, it's not like he is trying to reinstate Glass-Steagall or anything.

Better than his listing on Conservapedia.

Antispandex October 19, 2011 at 7:27 pm

But, it's Wikipedia. The only people who read it are the lazy, and my wingnut in-laws. When they bring up the Wikipedia stuff, I just tell them to Google Santorum. Lots of them block me on Facebook. Why?

glamourdammerung October 19, 2011 at 7:32 pm

I guess we figured out what Breitbart is up to.

Other than the crying in the closet because he desperately wants 1+ male(s) inside him and loathes himself so much for his obvious homosexuality that he has to babble about shooting folks for pointing out how much he wants to be at an all-one-can-gobble cock buffet.

JackObin October 19, 2011 at 7:32 pm

I prefer dicknose to dickhole. It's slightly less childish.

user-of-owls October 19, 2011 at 8:59 pm

It's slightly less childish. …and physically possible, too.

Barrelhse October 19, 2011 at 10:15 pm

Some popular choices around here include "dickbreath" and the interesting combination "dickweed."

poncho_pilot October 19, 2011 at 7:33 pm

lol. they're job creators, guys. not comedians! cut 'em slack. or give 'em enough rope. one of those.

BlueStateLibel October 19, 2011 at 7:40 pm

Slightly OT, but what's even funnier is when ShittiBank gets to pay a $285 million fine for defrauding investors: http://www.beaconequity.com/smw/13573/Citi-Agrees

GunToting[Redacted] October 19, 2011 at 8:26 pm

Didn't they make billions betting against the shit they sold to the rubes? Still seems like a profit.

BlueStateLibel October 19, 2011 at 8:41 pm

Yeah, it's just a slap on the wrist, but you know it kills them to even lose a dime.

glamourdammerung October 19, 2011 at 8:49 pm

As long as the fines are less than the rewards, the state is going to continue to encourage crime.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 20, 2011 at 2:24 am

At least in this case, ShittyBank came up short, to the tune of $95 mil. Yay for the good guys, I guess. Of course, if they took bailout money, that takes a lot of the fun out of it.

BaldarTFlagass October 19, 2011 at 7:45 pm

"Dickhole?" What, did Beavis and Butthead finally "score" a computer?

Pres.Libunatic October 19, 2011 at 7:56 pm

hehhehheh, you said "score."

Just in time for the new B&B series…

Numbat_Dundee October 19, 2011 at 7:48 pm

Maybe they were just confusing him with the 18th Century highwayman, Dick Turpin.

poncho_pilot October 20, 2011 at 12:47 am

does he come equipped with a Korean-made radio which picks up nothing but Radio Pyongyang?

Numbat_Dundee October 20, 2011 at 12:55 am

Because when you think "18th Century British" highwayman your first thought is "North Korea" right?

poncho_pilot October 20, 2011 at 7:18 am

if you've read Good Omens, quite possibly, yes.

donner_froh October 19, 2011 at 7:55 pm

The China State Poisonous Toy Engineering/Manufacturing Company of Guangzhou is messing with Durbin's Wikipedia entry. If he doesn't back off on restricting the amount of poison in imported toys to 5,000% of domestic toys they well dip his children in lead paint.

Negropolis October 19, 2011 at 10:25 pm

I won't believe that until I see something on Durbin's page making note that melamine is actually a delicious treat in moderation.

They keep this up since they can be secure in the knowledge that their actions have no consequences. Who's been punished for their subversive online activities? Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, that kid who hacked Lou Sarah's E-mail account, that's who. Not even the people who hack for Rupert Murdoch to earn megabucks have seen jail time.

Clive Goodman was fired, convicted and jailed in 2007 for phone hacking for Murdoch. Glenn Mulcaire was also jailed. Never the people actally in charge, of course.

If it's MSNBC, then "monkey with herpes" obviously refers to Pat Buchanan. He must have been spotted hanging around the Green Room.

They do have reasons for what they think, albeit stupid asshole reasons, but reasons nonetheless.

Haha, they are complete Morons. Have you seen their entry on "Greatest Conservative Songs"? http://conservapedia.com/Essay:Greatest_Conservat

Some excerpts:

Fast Car by Tracy Chapman: Self-help, free market, division of labor, and a criticism of alcohol. "I know things will get better/You'll find work and I'll get promoted/We'll move out of the shelter/Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs"

Livin' on a Prayer by Bon Jovi:Organized labor is harmful to the welfare of workers; instead one must rely on a love for Christ and prayer.

You Can't Hurry Love (You Just Have to Wait) by The Supremes: Abstinence for rock fans. Also performed by Phil Collins.

It just gets better as it goes along….

Biel_ze_Bubba October 20, 2011 at 2:48 am

They haven't yet invented the prize that this deserves.

Off-planet Xtardian babble, or off-charts wicked satire? You decide.
I'm leaning toward satire, but it's hard to distinguish expertly-crafted fake crazy from the genuine article. (It's a bit like trying to identify a parody of Mad Magazine: what clues would you look for?)

Dok-cupy Everything October 20, 2011 at 11:10 am

Poe's Law strikes again. (See also Poe's Corollary: "It is impossible for an act of Fundamentalism to be made that someone won't mistake for a parody.")

Biel_ze_Bubba October 20, 2011 at 11:58 pm

Woo… down the rabbit hole we go:

"Generally speaking, leading evolutionists generally no longer debate creation scientists because creation scientists tend to win the debates." This is from the Conservapedia entry on Poe's Law. But it's not presented as an example, it's presented in all seriousness — which makes it a perfect example. Maybe the whole Poe's Law entry is a parody — it's certainly absurd enough.

Conservapedia has a huge problem, in that nobody can tell the genuine wingnut entries from the parody pages… not even the insiders. It's a Poe Paradox: Any new member of the Conservapedia project who's not as conservative as they are is liable to be chucked out, while any new member who is as conservative (or crazy) as they are is in serious danger of being called a parodist, and chucked out.

Also change his party affiliation to Republican just for honesy and truthiness.

imissopus October 19, 2011 at 9:06 pm

What's he upset about? It's cheaper than having a BofA account. The free market is working!

RadioOcupados October 19, 2011 at 9:11 pm

I hope this doesn't interrupt and annoy Erin Brunett.

RavenRant October 20, 2011 at 7:29 am

I will laugh and laugh when her show gets dropped for shitty ratings.

Schmannnity October 19, 2011 at 9:42 pm

Oh, for the more genteel 2008s when Dickhole Durbin was then known by the A-Rab haters as Turban Durbin for criticizing Guantanemo.

ttommyunger October 19, 2011 at 9:46 pm

Heh, heh, he said "Dick", heh, heh.

johnnyzhivago October 19, 2011 at 9:55 pm

Ok, no snark here…. Bank of America is of course adding a $5.00 fee for using debit cards. Now figure this – I have a business checking account at B of A – and – my account is FREE if and ONLY IF I use my debit card at least once a month ($18.00 fee if I don't use the debit card)

Explain that….

Biel_ze_Bubba October 20, 2011 at 2:50 am

Business good, peasant bad. What's hard to understand about that?

johnnyzhivago October 20, 2011 at 8:01 am

This is a peasant business though…

spends2much October 19, 2011 at 9:57 pm

Dear Teabaggers,
Instead of juvenile name-calling, take action! It is your right as an American to pay wicked high fees at your bank- it's in the Constitution, probably… when you use an ATM, after you make a withdrawal, go back into the bank, and give the teller 3 bucks. Unless you're a REAL Murrican, then you'll give her $5. Freedom depends on it.

Negropolis October 19, 2011 at 10:07 pm

Heh. Dickhole Durbin. Heh. But, what with all of the Republican dicks? Dick Santorum, Dick Snyder, Dick Scott, Dick Perry, Dick Cheney, Dick Walker…well, the last one is a stretch, but, you know what they say, if the dick fits…

For all of their dicks, though, they don't seem to have even one to share amongst themselves.

ProudLibunatic October 19, 2011 at 10:42 pm

Not to mention Dick Cheney…

Negropolis October 20, 2011 at 2:37 am

He's in there, second from the end.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 20, 2011 at 2:53 am

Hard to spot one salted dick in that Costco-sized bagful.

freddymcmurray October 20, 2011 at 5:04 am

You forgot Tricky Dicky.

glamourdammerung October 19, 2011 at 10:08 pm

Karl Rove's long term work of getting conservatives to basically mimic "Jackass" in their strategic planning has born some strange fruit indeed.

MilwaukeeKent October 19, 2011 at 10:21 pm

Did you hear what happened at recess? Johnnie ran up and called Durbin "Dickhole!" right on the playground in front of Mrs. Johnson and everything!

Barrelhse October 19, 2011 at 10:25 pm

heh. You said "Johnson."

MilwaukeeKent October 20, 2011 at 1:59 am

Well, to me it's "Mrs. Johnson" when you put a tiny tutu on it.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 20, 2011 at 2:55 am

Someone should monitor Congressional recesses more carefully.

Litlebritdifrnt October 19, 2011 at 10:45 pm

OT – serious bleg. The Fogbow, a great anti birfer website who busts its ass going after the birfers by following the various trials and getting a whole bunch of transcripts has a forum owner who has contracted a serious illness. He has no health insurance, we are right now running a fundraiser for him. If you can help PLEASE go to The Fogbow and hit the contribute button, all of the donations that normally would go to the purchase of transcripts of birfer trials and hearings are currnetly going to Foggies medical bills.

If you want to do something postiive, do this. I thank you in advance.

you know, i got nothing except 'fucking idiots'.

yeah that's it.

obfuscator2 October 20, 2011 at 12:55 am

in springfield, the local conservatives refer to him as "turban durbin". during the gitmo scandal, durbin spoke on the senate floor and said:

"If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime – Pol Pot or others – that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners."

he was subsequently pressured by the left and the right to apologize for telling the truth, and he eventually caved. i'm still very proud to call him my senator.

RadioOcupados October 20, 2011 at 2:09 am

hey obs, it took a dickhole to bring you out of the woodwork.

mrblifil October 20, 2011 at 12:56 am

I don't see how the Senator can overcome this.

bflrtsplk October 20, 2011 at 7:37 am

Durbin to wingnuts: All of yours put together: Still smaller than mine.

Possibly more than one person tried this Wikipedia edit – the one I saw was from a Comcast user in the Mobile, Alabama area (the town of Eight Mile, to be exact). The Google Street View for the area is pretty sad, to put it mildly.

Fred_Wertham_Jr October 19, 2011 at 8:06 pm

I liked being a moonbat. The moon is cool. Bats are scary but cool. Moonbats must be really cool.

user-of-owls October 19, 2011 at 8:51 pm

Now do you see the ironic beauty of "Poopyhead"?

Michele_Blachmann October 19, 2011 at 10:15 pm

I didn't know about Robertson and Begelman till you brought it up, but there's a great story on the LA Times about it that I just read. Fascinating. I will put this movie on my Netflix queue.

Let me know what you think of it, if and when you see it!

Negropolis October 19, 2011 at 10:16 pm

Some might even say scary-cool.

Fare la Volpe October 20, 2011 at 7:54 am

He decided to come on his own.

Performance anxiety.

Chet Kincaid October 20, 2011 at 9:53 am

South of 159th St. is "Downstate."

kissawookiee October 20, 2011 at 11:05 am

Word. My parents and their siblings went to school with the execrable John Shimkus' family, if that tells you anything, although the earlier-generation Shimki were a lot more fun.

Dok-cupy Everything October 20, 2011 at 11:09 am

I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Dear Dawkins, that entry is brilliant. It convinced me to become a conservative Christian, because of course that is the only position that is rational and supported by evidence.

One small disappointment–since much of the comedy on Conservapedia is found in the articles' talk pages, I waas disappointed that this one's talk page link just redirects to their main article on "creation science." Gotta love the illustration on that page, though.
