One Ring to dupe them all!My Dearest Barry-Bear: I know you told me we could never speak of our love. I know I signed that confidentiality agreement when you ran for the Senate, and, yes, I remember the Secret Service’s little “visits” to my luxurious penthouse apartment when you thought I might show up at the Inauguration. I know about the drones that follow me day and night.

But I can no longer hold my tongue! (Remember how you used to like that?) WorldNet Daily KNOWS, baby. They are on to the truth at last, and I have to say that, difficult though I know the coming days are going to be for both of us, I for one feel a sense of relief. I won’t have to live this lie anymore, won’t have to live in denial about our secret gay marriage in Pakistan in 1988. You were so cute in your burqa, babe! But now, as I used to quip in a totally non-racist way when you had morning wood, “the jig is up”! WND’s Jerome Corsi has been asking some very inconvenient questions about all the many gaps in your supposed history, and now he wants to know why photographs show you wearing a ring on your wedding-ring finger before your 1992 sham marriage to Michelle (Hi, Michelle! No offense, darling, but you know your role in this little charade, and I think it’s high time we all start being Real, you know?)

And now WND has dug up that old parody issue of the Harvard Law Revue with the incriminating “joke” about how one of your “recent accomplishments” was “Deflecting Persistent Questioning About Ring on Left Hand.” As we knew at the time, hiding out in our love nest on the commune, those little grad school jokes were hitting just a little too close to home, weren’t they, lover? I guess I blame myself–after all, I was the one who encouraged you to become editor at the Law Review, and I said nothing when your pals wrote that little fake review article that was full of inside jokes about the mystery of your origins and the arcana of law school. Jerome Corsi knows that, even though the piece is packed with sophomoric humor-like passages, law school students would never stoop to a cheesy pun unless it had far greater significance:

One line of the “self-tribute” said: “I invited my underlings to join me for a ‘pot luck’ dinner at my understated and mature apartment.” The line suggests Obama continued to smoke marijuana through his law school days, despite repeated assertions by his 2008 presidential campaign that he stopped using the drug either after attending Occidental College or after graduating from Columbia in 1982.

I tell you, Bare-Bear, this organization is good. Corsi has clearly been taking lessons from his colleage Jack Cashill, whose close-reading skills rival those of the average 19-year old Comp Lit major. There is no line of text too dense for him to unpack, and I fear that there is no longer any use in your even trying to hide from the crew of postmodern critics that is WorldNet Daily. They have even sussed out that the ring on your finger cannot possibly be your high school ring! If it is not a high school ring, then what can it be? People do not simply wear rings on their wedding-ring fingers if they are not married! Such a thing is never done, and WND knows this.

Sweet-hunks, it’s clear that WND is on the trail of the truth, now, and it’s time for all of us to come clean. I can no longer live this lie, my ebony Hawaiian treasure, and so I must let you know that I will be sending Jerome Corsi all of the college junk you were storing in my spare room, as well as Michelle’s “whitey” tape. I know the timing is not exactly right. I know that our plan all along was for you to be re-elected and to seize all the guns and declare yourself Emperor of Ice Cream, after I revealed my true identity when my “Donald Trump” character accepted the GOP nomination (it really would have been the realization of my greatest prank ever!) But events have, as they so often do, outpaced our dreams. I wish you well, my love, and remember, we’ll always have Jakarta.

    • Barrelhse

      Corsi has a missing finger, too. Well, it's not exactly missing- it's where you can't see it.

      • Sparky McGruff

        I'm wondering how this all relates to Rahm's missing finger. That's got to be part of the conspiracy.

        • Well, James Doohan was on that beach on Normandy on D-Day, see, and Rahm's Dad … oh, never mind. I just can't work up a good head of lying after hearing Mitt in action.

          • You mean Mitt Romney, the French speaking candidate that avoided service in Vietnam?

          • Yeah. That windsurfer, or jetskier, or whatever hugely expensive sport he indulges in with his fat and snobbish Lady Wife.

  • These guys seriously need a hobby. Hopefully one that involves immolation.

    Suggested new questions for form 4473, the Firearm Transaction Record, that is required before a purchaser can acquire a gun:
    Do you believe President Obama is an American citizen who was born in Hawaii? Y__N__
    Do you believe dangerous forces have infiltrated the federal government and are about to take over this country? Y__N__
    Do you ever receive instructions from your dog or your neighbor's dog regarding who you should shoot? Y__N__

    Who in their right mind would cheat on Michelle? Who in their right mind would believe any fucking word that came out of Jerome Corsi's cakehole?

    • PsycWench

      True dat. If I heard Jerome Corsi say that it was sunny when I was getting ready for the day, first I would call the police because no way he was invited. Then I would get my umbrella.

    Wouldn't it be easier for Corsi to just tell us the aspects of Obama's life that aren't a conspiracy?

    • But that would decimate his payments from FOX for "story ideas."

  • emmelemm

    Dearest Zoom,

    I'mma let you finish, but Sara Benincasa was the best Barack Obama pretend lovah of all time. OF ALL TIME!

    • Is there a requirement that all of Wonkette writers secretly be having the sex with Obama? Is that why Reilly left Wonkette? Did Brietbart know about this? Is that why he had to die?

      • Lionel, man, you just be givin' away ALL the damn secrets, today!

      • emmelemm

        It's a requirement that all Wonkette writers WANT (not so secretly) to have sex with Barry.

  • Barry is the Lord of the Ring.

    Undignified? A little. But that sucker's gonna be expensive to fix. Thanks!

    • I hate the new Impalas. Those fucking tailights drive me nuts but that's beside the point. I love Vlad's cause–will do what I can. Dammit, my 110k Protege needs a timing belt! (why the hell aren't more engines freewheelin'?)

      • My mom repainted it in about 1982; it's deteriorated some since that 2001 photo. I'm thinking of going with primer gray, which announces to the world "I am totally going to do a real restoration someday, man, soon as I get that next big paycheck."

        • Big thanks to the anonymous awesome person who just donated $25! Dang, you people are nice!

      The crowd yelled and applauded and carried on, screaming for more.

      She said "Well, I could just do my old act…"

      And for the next forty-five or so minutes she did.

      • Goonemeritus

        It’s clear Rebecca just can’t relate to the challenges and heartbreak of being a super-hot guy.

            For some reason this reminds me of visiting some folks in Georgia who served us cheese with Georgia Crackers. Georgia Crackers was the actual brand name, but I can find no mention of them on teh Google.

            And since you're not from these parts, here's the wikilink on GA Crackers:

            And some hillbilly music from North GA:

          • Thank you very much. You're too kind.

            I love folk music of any nation, so hillbilly/bluegrass really appeals to me, especially given its links to Irish and Scottish folk music. The use of the fiddle in American country music is a topic for an entire book.

            OTH, America and FOOD, I have a little trouble with. I will say that Italian Americans, thank goodness, did not let go of their fine culinary traditions, even if this country has tried to reduce them to greasy pizza and horrible fat-laden pastas. But everything else — even the Chinese food here — horrible. Utterly horrible.

          • va_real

            Different areas of the country have foodways that I find fascinating. The upper Midwest & its Eastern European & Scandinavian traditions, TexMex, Louisiana with it's French/Cajun flavors…

            I grew up in the SC Lowcountry with a mishmash of culinary influences… Scotch/Irish/English, Huguenot French & Afro-Caribbean- it's all there- with rice & seafood playing the starring roles. An old joke asks how Charlestonians are like the Chinese? (They both eat rice & worship their ancestors.)

          • French and Afro-Caribbean, I could get it up for. After traveling through England and Ireland, I respectfully beg to disagree with anyone who labels their comestibles "food."

            Of course, I should add that I grew up in a country with all kinds of incredibly tasty, inexpensive food, with influences ranging from Indian through Persian, Arabic, Chinese, Thai, Indonesian, Portuguese, Burmese, and Kampuchean, and when I was growing up, there were no bottled or packaged foods. Everybody made everything fresh from scratch.

            However, I'm always willing to be educated out of my prejudices, so please, feel free to point me to anything that will expand my knowledge of food in these heah parts.

            I will say that I do like Cajun food, largely because of the clever use of French techniques, although it tends to be heavier on flour and oil and fats and processed meats than I care for in general. But I'm good at adapting recipes, so fire away.

          • va_real

            Lowcountry & Louisiana foodways have much in common, but I think LC recipes tend to be more vegetable-centric, less spicy & less dependent on a roux for flavor. Veggies were traditionally cooked with a bit of pork or beef for flavor, but most recipes can survive that omission. Summer squash, okra, tomatoes, eggplant, sweet corn, sweet peppers, peas & beans are what we're eating now. When the weather is cooler, more lettuces, greens, winter squash, dried peas & beans, root vegetables, etc. whatever you may have 'put up' from the summer crops. Most non-dessert items start with an onion sauteed in butter or some other fat.

          • Thank you so much, my dear. You are really very sweet and kind. I appreciate this.

          • va_real

            I hope you find something new that will suit you.

          • I certainly plan to experiment! Cooking is one thing I can still do, although not as easily as I used to. But it's still something enjoyable, and I plan to do it till they drag me off to the boneyard. Thank you for your contribution to my culinary experiments.

          • redarmyzombie

            MittBorg, have you ever been to the California Bay Area? 'Cause we've got some DAMN good cuisine here, what with all the Brownz an' Furrinerz we got!

            (Seriously, you gotta love a town that has more Tandoori spots than churches.)

          • Yes, darling, I have. And I will say that California has, bar none, the best food in the USA. (Of course, I've only ever been to Utah, Arizona, New York, Connecticut, New Mexico, Georgia (ATL only), Oregon, and Washington, so maybe I'll have to do an updated culinary tour of the missing states?)

          • BerkeleyBear

            One of the most delightfully odd classes I took in college was historical archeology. The professor (whose name I never knew) was really big on colonial work, espeically slave dwellings. But his other passion was the Hillbilly and true country music (his people were North Carolina Hillfolk). He spent a whole 2 hour lecture demonstrating the fiddle, mandolin, and dulcimer and talking about their similarities, differences and roles in country life. It was just mindblowing, especially since it was one of only 4 or 5 lectures I managed to drag myself to in the class, and it has stuck with me for more than a decade.

          • Fascinating. And congrats on going back to grad school! It's going to be tough, but I feel a mite reassured at the thought that you'll be one of our Public Health Policy movers and shakers someday soon.

          • I wish I'd been rich enough to go to all the classes I ever wanted to. That would have been a fun class. There's a local busker who plays the hammer dulcimer. It's beautiful.

        • TribecaMike

          And then he made all those cheap-o oaters with Gabby Hayes and torpedoed any chance for a political career.

          • I thought that was @RafalcaRomney, Mittens' little horsie, who did that.

  • Tundra Grifter

    Dear Penthouse:

    I really never thought that it could happen to me. I met this guy…

  • WinterOuthouse

    He stole the ring from John McCain and then McCain's nuts went numb. True Story.

  • mavenmaven

    Look, WND reveals that the birther story is false: "A photograph of Obama with his Grandmother Sarah from his first trip to Kenya in 1987".
    It wouldn't have been his first trip to Kenya had he been born there!
    Gotcha moment, WND!

    • Can I tweet that?

    • Not so… Consider this more likely chain of events:

      Obama was plucked from the birth canal directly into the time portal for his indoctrination by Stalin and Hitler. His mother was then rushed by UFO back to Hawaii to submit the false birth announcements and submit forged papers for the "birth certificate"

  • va_real

    Whoa! Obama was born in Oslo? And his mother was a back-up singer for Abba?

    I just don't know what to believe anymore…

  • dennis1943

    Throwing manure at the wall to see if it sticks has become a career for some……….especially since there is such a surplus of it………….

  • Wouldn't being secretly married have put a damper on his burgeoning CIA career, though?

    I hear that Barry fellow was a big up-and-comer in the CIA division of Assassinating White People and Giving Their Land to Negroes, after all. I'm not sure why he would have put that all on line to get secretly (and, let's not beat around the bush, here: almost certainly gay-)married.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Secretly married and wearing a ring … two activities that always go well together.

      I have to imagine people at WND sitting around, laughing hysterically and trying to top one another, wondering if there's anything they could possibly publish that would decrease sales to their brain-damaged readership.

    OT: Sadface because I can no longer even lurk at work due to new super sonic web filter that hates my Wonkette because you are some sort of nefarious newslistgroupthingy :(

    • Well, that totally fucking sucks.

      Oh, and to answer your question, No, they do not.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Being able to read Wonkette at work is what Steve Jobs invented the iPhone for. True story.

      • Madam Killjoy

        But I can't read the comments on my iPhone!! (No offense to those who slave here for wages, or page views, or whatever they feed those who toil in the tubes; but I want me some comments)
        / 1st world problem to the extreme

        • emmelemm

          When I go to the Wonkies on my (Android) phone, which I seldom do, the mobile site loads automatically, but if you scroll down to the bottom, there's links for "Mobile | Original". If you click on Original, you can get to the comments. But of course, it then loads slower than all get-out.

          Your mileage may vary.

          • Madam Killjoy

            Thank you (and Biff and HistoriCat, too) for being so servicey! I tried the "original" option but it doesn't show the comments. Must be the iPhone's problem. However! Good news – my Wonkette was mysteriously allowed through the web filters today, so huzzah!

        • Biff

          Try this:
          Works on my Android, big thanks to neoyorquino for the link.

        • va_real

          I do like that song a lot. Did you ever see the biopic or mockumentary (or whatever it was) of the same name?

          • I have not, though I keep meaning to. I thought that the (opening? closing?) credits are over The Bobs' "Andy Always Dreamed of Wrestling", or maybe that was just something the Bobs said at a concert before the movie came out…it doesn't appear to be in the soundtrack…

          • va_real

            It's been a little while since I saw the movie, so the fact that I don't remember the Bobs song doesn't mean much. That's cool, though…

            I'm pretty sure REM provided at least 2 songs, but that's all I recall of the soundtrack.

  • coolhandnuke

    Way to shop the "White Label" hooch in there WND. Wouldn't a 40oz fit your binary narrative?

    • Actually, that was pasted in there by the Harvard Law students in their "Revue." So witty, those law students.

  • hey you guys this is totally OT but you are all dear to me so i tell you anyway.

    i came home today and found that my beautiful black and white gay (male) supermodel had left us. as he was technically supposed to have left us in about april of 2011 (and we lost his cage brother – my avatar – in 2008) this shouldn't have been a surprise. however, thru a happy combination of opiates, daily fluids and other assorted pharmacopoeia we had convinced ourselves that he was invincible.

    in fact, he was merely determined to be The Most Svelte.

    his name was harry and we will miss him. (here are pictures if you are so inclined):

    • I'm so sorry, fuflans. (Hugs fuflans)

    • Tundra Grifter


      I'm very sorry to read this. On Mother's Day we lost our beloved Bandit, a wonderful golden retriver (mostly – a little German shephard). He was an orphan we picked up from the mean streets of Oakland, and for seven years he lit up our life.

      Flat out he was just the best dog in the world – all he ever wanted was to be loved and petted and walked and be part of our family. He was named Bandit because he made out like a bandit when we found him – and because he stole our hearts from the very first day.

      It just broke our hearts when we had to put him to sleep…

      • Now I have to give YOU a hug, too, TG. I'm so sorry about Bandit. It was so good of you to rescue him from the streets!

        • Tundra Grifter


          Thank you!

      • Biff

        So sorry to read this, TG…

    • Oh, damn–what a gorgeous cat!

      Edit– also, visitors to fuflans' Harry pics really need to click on the pics to embiggen them, and appreciate just what a handsome fellow he was. I'm cat-sitting my ex's furry doofus, Snickers, and will give him extra ear-scritches in Harry's memory.

    • Sorry about your friend.

    • va_real

      I'm so sorry for your loss, fluflans. I hope that sharing your memories like this will help you to grieve & heal.

    • redarmyzombie

      I'm sorry to hear that, Fuflans. It's always hard, losing a critter.

    • Angry_Marmot

      So sorry. What a handsome fellow he was.

    • So sad to lose a beloved animal. Sorry.
      When she was little, my daughter asked me why we had a dog, since we knew it would be gone before all of us. I told her that was the dilemma of pet owners. You have to weigh the heartbreak of losing them with the joy of knowing them. I believe we win in the end. I have three dogs, and their ages are staggered, (2,7,14), so (hopefully), I'l never be without their company.

    • Sorry to hear this. I hope he had a happy life!

    • emmelemm

      I'm so sorry. Losing a pet is the hardest thing (especially because it is inevitable that they die first).

  • Jennyjen798

    My earlier comment was eaten by Mike Huckabee or something…
    Anyways. Marriage records are public records. If they were so damned concerned about it they could, you know, go searching REAL STATE RECORDS for it. Who knows they might even find them online, maybe.

    Epic investigative journalist fail.

    • This is WND, after all. They might start looking at stuff like that, but after finding nothing, they'd "discover" that some minor bureaucrat who worked with marriage records died in a car crash in 2009 that "was officially ruled to be an 'accident' by the police after a hasty investigation."

      • Jennyjen798

        Oh right! The little old lady who stamped the certificate suddenly died of a heart attack (CIA DRONES?!?!?!?!) taking Obummer's secret kenyan muslin marriage to the GRAVE!

        I mean I could think of a bunch of reasons off the top of my head as to why he would wear a wedding ring

        1) It was a cutesy joke between him and a girlfriend (maybe him and Michelle, like I really care who he was dating back then)

        2) He had a crazy girlfriend who wanted him to put a ring on it ala Levi and Bristol. THAT'S HER MAN YOU GUYS!

        3) Wedding rings are total pussy magnets. Seriously some women just love that challenge. Although I doubt he really had a problem in that area.

        4) It was his mom's ring that she wore when she married his dad. He put it on for the rumors and lolz. Who knew it would work decades later? Trolololol! Obama =Grand Master Sensei of Trolling.

    • I'm pretty sure the Huckabee's plan one singlehandedly saving Chik Fil A

      • va_real

        I agree- Chris Christie seems a far likelier culprit.

  • Biel_ze_Bubba

    "A publication produced by Harvard law students in 1990 confirms Barack Obama wore a ring on his wedding-ring finger before he married Michelle in 1992."

    Tomato, tomahto, law review, law revue. Because you always wear a ring when you want to hide it. See how he's hiding his left hand in the photo? And he took the ring off every time his left hand was photographed. EVERY TIME!!! More positive proof than this, could not be imagined!

    I do hope Michelle gets to see this copy of WingNut Daily, because I like the thought of her dragging Bamz to bed with a big grin and 'forcing' him to tell her all about it. (I think about this in a very respectful and abstract way, of course.)

    • How *could* you?

      Now I'll spend my whole fucking night dreaming about Michelle "questioning" Barack, and forcing unmentionable cruelties upon him. Uh, gotta go, time to sleep.

      • redarmyzombie

        Uh, yeah, "sleep".

        Now where's that Moisturizer when I need it?

        • Hint: Lube's better. Moisturizer gets dry too fast. (settles in for a long fap)

          • redarmyzombie

            I know. Problem is, the nearest drugstore has a little old Chinese lady who runs the cashier. I go in, grab the KY, get in the line, and I just…I just can't do it, every time I see that little old lady, I just can't…

          • (blush) (twitch)

            Right. I can MAIL you some. Or, you know, break down and get a charge account at Good Vibrations, dude. I think they mail you that stuff in a plain brown wrapper.

          • redarmyzombie

            Thanks, but I'll manage on my own somehow. Number one, I live with my parents still, and second, the day I take lubricant and/or sex toys as charity will be the day I consider myself a failure. Granted, not nearly as much of a failure as Louie Gofuckhimself, but it will be a very depressing day nonetheless.

            And, ah, Good Vibrations you say? *makes mental note*

          • True, I hadn't thought of that, sweetie.

            Yes, Good Vibrations. Back when I still worked in the Valley some of those terrible WIMMINZ in the offices organized an expedition just so they could terrorize the rest of us. You never heard so many embarrassed giggles in your life. Grown people! Hell, OLD people. Snickering like teenagers at teh giant purple silicon dildos.

            You could buy a whole pile of crap, and sort of casually toss in the K-Y.

            Then she yells out to her husband in the back of the store, "HOW MUCH IS THE K-Y?" "WHAT?" "THE K-Y LUBE!" (Waves it around over her head.) "HOW MUCH?"

            Might as well get the large family size.

    I'm stunned the HLR folks managed to crank out a parody volume.

And the footnotes are a properly Bluebooked laugh riot (at least the ones I got).

    Selling snake oil is so 20th century, the greatest con game in the 21st century is selling fake information to conservative conspiracy freaks. I have a guy in Nigeria that will sell you "real copies of Obama's Kenyan birth certificate" for only $19.99. Beats the hell out of 419 scams.

    Lest you think this is a joke Orly Tiaz paid a guy in Kenya $10,000 who then produced a fake "real" Obama birth certificate. Of course this was after he cashed the check, and sent her a " ha ha ha sucker" email!
