Newest Wonkette Pet Republican Diva Mindy Meyer Speaks!

Mindy Meyer, the 22-year-old supervixen running for New York State Senate, is the subject of this nice video from the Jewish Forward.

We stopped listening after about two minutes, once she got to Rudy Giuliani not coming to her bat mitzvah, because our Internet es broked and the Skid Row Starbucks started playing If You’re Going to San Francisco, and we wanted to listen to that instead even though we really like Meyer’s voice. It’s throaty and nice! Also, she’s pretty adorable when she’s not doing Zoolander’s Blue Steel for the cameras. But girl can talk, and we didn’t really see an end in sight. Anyway, love you, Min! You keep being you! [Forward]

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


  1. Not_So_Much

    Jeebus, looks like Snooki, sounds like a longshoreman (but with a deeper voice and worse elocution).

    1. CountryClubJihadi

      Sounds like she started with the Marlboro's at Eleven and a Half years old, also.

    1. Isyaignert

      Bonus ponts for correctly saying "Bimmer" since most people say "Beemer" but that's reserved for the BMW motorcycles. Well played, nounverb911, very well played!

      1. CalamityJames

        Magic. Not the Jeebus kind of magic, but the "hey, that hasn't happened down there in years" kind of magic.

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        Yup. She's also majoring in some sort of astro-electro-robo-physics program. (For those who insist that smart is sexy.)

  2. fartknocker

    Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the new Director of Communications for the Romney 2012 campaign.

    1. walterhwhite

      Um, no. She looks like a Jersey Girl. Way too much makeup and hideous blingy blouse. I have no doubt her goal is to get on a reality TV show.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      I have often wondered who it could possibly work for. I don't think I've ever seen it look good on anyone.

      She'd look fantastic in a dark red lipstick. If I was blessed with dark hair and dark eyes, I'd be wearing dark red lipstick TO BED.

      1. Billmatic

        I was gonna say Emma Stone and then realized that even her subtle shades of lip color are still pinkish.

        1. anniegetyerfun

          Emma is too pale to pull of a nude lip. In fact, I think only a tan Brooke Shields circa 1989 could have done it.

          1. tessiee

            See, now I was thinking a wholesome blondie a la Jodie Foster or Bridget Fonda, but yours is good, too.

            And yes, you are right; it's a rare rose who blossoms in white lips.

          2. anniegetyerfun

            Don't get me wrong – I want her bad, and I'm not even attracted to white people. I have nearly the same complexion that she does, though, and ladies like us cannot do the nude lip.

    2. mrpuma2u

      Whoops my bad b-matic, you beat me to it. Agreed. A burgundy might work, or just go with working girl red and be done with it.

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        The last thing she should do, with that honker, is make her lips disappear. (The heavy eye makeup just adds to the problem.) I think it works only if you've got perfect features (Emma Watson could pull it off.)

    1. anniegetyerfun

      You think that's bad? I didn't even HAVE a bat mitzvah*.

      *I was raised nominally Catholic, but I don't think that's any excuse.

  3. Barb_

    She's not a very attentive driver, is she? I was half expecting her to swerve to avoid that patch of trees. Silly Mindy! That's just a stack of pine tree air fresheners hanging from your rear view mirror.

    Keep rocking that pleated skirt!

    1. pdiddycornchips

      I am pretty sure that dude didn't speak a lick of English. Also, too, isn't that the kind of guy the RNC is trying to stop from voting in the first place?

  4. SorosBot

    So in addition to auto-playing "Sexy and I know it" on her insanely pink website, Meyer calls herself a diva. She's really trying hard to be taken seriously and fighting against sexist stereotypes!

  5. ManchuCandidate

    I remember all my life
    Raining down as cold as ice
    A shadow of a man
    A face through a window
    Crying in the night
    The night goes into

    Morning, just another day
    Crazy people on Youtube play
    Looking in their eyes
    I see a memory
    I never realized
    How silly you really are, oh Mindy

    Well you came and you spoke without thinking
    And posted on Youtube today, oh Mindy
    And you spoke on and on which stopped me from crying
    And I mock you today, oh Mindy

    1. Isyaignert

      Agreed. She's a legend in her own mind. Running for office? She's really good at running her mouth…blah, blah, I, me, me, mine, blah, blah, me, me, me.

    2. Katydid

      She's not as anything as she thinks she is, but with Moishe and Sadie kvelling over her for 22 years, this is what you get.

  6. Typodong3

    At last Mittens has found his running mate. Shes got the females, the Jewish vote, and the Jersey Shore folks locked up.

  7. Mumbletypeg

    There's still time in this young, young lady's career to consider alternatives to her chosen partisan affinity. I'm surprised this entrant into politics didn't foray first with baby steps soliciting the undecided's. Think how well she could woo her way to victory with: "Go Indie — Vote Mindy!"

    1. JohnnyQuick

      Speaking as a Joo, I'm embarrassed (seems to be happening a lot lately).

      Stop making us look like rich asshole morons, Mindy. Stop making us look like Republicans.

      1. swordfis

        Mindy has nothing on Sheldon Adelson, America's Most Embarrassing Jew. Also, given her district's demographics, she might actually have to do something useful.

  8. Ducksworthy

    But are Jewish girls sacramentally opposed to blow-jobs? If not, I'd cut her some slack. Orthodox girls, I mean. I'm pretty sure I remember its OK for Reform girls.

  9. JustPixelz

    I lasted one minute. Did I win the gold medal? Unsurprisingly, she also drove me insane.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      Yeah, I think I might have made it five seconds farther, but you can totally have my medal.

  10. Baconzgood

    Isn't there a Jewish law about Orthodox women in government? I'm not sure because I'm a Catholic. If a Wonkette Jew can help me out on this I'll answer all your Irish Catholic questions.

    1. Katydid

      off-the-docks women can be in the senate as long as the other senators use a sheet with a hole in it to talk to her.

    2. rickmaci

      In my experience, the word "Orthodox" is used with a variety of levels of meaning in terms of Jewish religious practices and observances. Find out if she rides around her B'lyn hood in her Acura between Friday at dusk and Saturday evening and you'll have a fairly good idea of what she means by Orthodox.

    3. Biel_ze_Bubba

      No problem – unless you consider being airbrushed out of all the photos of the State Legislature a problem.

      1. tessiee

        I'd snicker more wholeheartedly, except that someone once held my hands and asked for directions to my house, and I literally *could not do it*.

        I can still snicker at her for being an obnoxious dumbass, though, can't I?

    1. FakaktaSouth

      I wish I had met Amy Winehouse, just once maybe, when I was a child, so that I would have a reason to run for office. (Amy counts as much as Rudy, yes? Come on)

  11. Oblios_Cap

    I'm ready to take that long walk from my front porch to her front seat. The door is open but that ride ain't free!

  12. tbogg

    This may be the first "I'd tap that"-less post ever and that includes the one that got Jack Steuf fired.

    1. Billmatic

      By the way am I going to hell if I thought the post that got Steuf fired was fucking hysterical?

  13. bfddad

    That degree in Political Science is paying off. She was sooo smooth with that black fella, you can tell she's going places in the future.

  14. Preferred Customer

    Make all the fun you want, but compare this to Mitt's drive through (and stream of insults at) Detroit, and tell me, who would you rather take a ride with?

  15. SayItWithWookies

    So she drives around until she sees a bunch of people standing on a corner, then she stops and harangues them for a little while? That's certainly a proactive adaptation to the way my local homeless people do it.

    1. tessiee

      Au contraire, mon frere.
      Those of us in the olive-skinned, raven-haired, East Coast gene axis have this weird pause button on aging thing going on, where we look 30 when we're 10, and look 30 when we're 60.
      Now, as to how attractive her voice and personality will be once she's out of her 20s…

  16. Jerri

    Hmm. Didn't our last Official Wonkette Obscure Political Objet d'Fap turn out to be…well not so great? (*coughSarahPalincoughcough*)

    What I'm saying is, evidently Wonketteer fapping has some kind of strange and terrible power. Wield it (as it were) carefully.

    1. Terry

      …and before Sarah, the male Wonketteers were quite taken by Katherine Harris' gravity defying rack, iirc.

  17. SheriffRoscoe

    Do her senate votes count if she casts them while being "unclean"? Both the Constitution and the Torah are silent on this.

      1. Guppy

        Why has no enterprising capitalist started a fetish site for this?

        A friend of mine wants to know.

  18. Toomush_Infer

    I like the little twirl before she gets in the car – yup, she can take care of it in Albany for you…this is the Republican Party – all ego, no self-consciousness, winning is everything and no ideas about anything….um,SCOTUS 2016?????…..SCROTUM 2016????….

    1. savethispatient

      Yeah! Why did she drop into a British accent to say that? Is this an East Coast thing?

      1. anniegetyerfun

        Actually, most Americans say it without the “t” (like we say “kitten”), but not with nearly as much of a glottal stop as she was using there. It's like she abandoned all consonants.

  19. anniegetyerfun

    I find it endearing that she still says "11 and a half years old", like she's still 11 and a half years old.

    I'm THIS MANY.

  20. randcoolcatdaddy

    Found this quote from her online:

    "My campaign manager just spoke to Kim Kardashian's publicist because she's a diva and everything, so they're getting back to me because we're trying to get her endorsement because, you know, she, whatever, my website is literally like her."

    Palin is envious.

  21. calliecallie

    Minute 2:55 "I'd like to make a U-turn, but you can't film it. Like, Senators can't do illegal stuff. Actually I have to make a U-turn because if I don't it's going to take an hour and a half. (She makes the illegal U-turn and continues) I would use my moral and religious values as a compass. I'm basically out there to stomp out the corruption."

    Yeah, she seems destined to end up in Albany.

    1. MonkeyMotion

      With that kind of 'incorruptible' moral compass, she's destined for a GOP Ethics Committee!

    2. PubOption

      The video is from Jewish Forward, they wouldn't want her to select the Jewish reverse!

  22. BoatOfVelociraptors

    The number of head turns she made while driving made me glad her daddy bought insurance.

  23. Neoyorquino

    "Do I have your vote? Do I have your vote? Cooommeee ooonn! Cooommmeee ooonnn! Fugghedaboutit! Kevin Parker? What'd he ever to for you! Whaddya got to lose? Oh, what? You're a Democrat? Fugghedaboutit! I'll take care of ya! Baddabing! Whoa!"

  24. CheeseBro69

    Mock her all you want, but skinny Snookie actually has a legitimate chance at winning if she can convince Brooklyn hipsters to ironically vote for her.

  25. Dildeaux

    We learned a few important facts about Mindy today.

    Mindy wears cute little jackets.
    Mindy has her nails done.
    Mindy drives an Acura.
    Mindy has many deodorizers hanging from her mirror.
    Mindy can put her car in gear.
    Mindy will not run over black people, if they are in her district.
    Mindy stops and harasses random black people.
    Mindy has litttle to offer her constituents, but she will be better than her opponent.
    Mindy listens to 92.3 in the car.
    Mindy wants to be President one day.

    1. PubOption

      Mindy has her nails done… and hasn't, at least publicly, denigrated 'nail ladies'.

  26. SorosBot

    Really, I think we would get more intelligent political commentary from the Mindy that was always getting rescued by poor hapless Buttons. OKIloveyoubyebye!

  27. thefrontpage

    Mindy Meyer is such a beautiful, intelligent, insightful, intellectual, wise old sage at 22, there's absolutely on doubt that, at 22, she is definately experienced, knowledgeable, mature, grown-up, adult and practiced enough that she can work in a State Senae office in one of the biggest states in the United States and rule on issues such as government and politics, abortion, gun control, welfare, food stamps, HIV and AIDS, Medicare, Medicaid, senior citizen issues, education, transportation, public safety, emergency services, business, the economy, labor, agriculture, farming, defense, homeland security, infrastructure, health and human services, commerce, justice, courts, corrections and numerous other issues.

  28. gullywompr

    Just imagine the tears when she loses this election, and thus her presidential aspirations (seriously, check out the little sparkly smile she gives herself when she mentions wanting to be president).

    "Oh Rudy, my darling… I have failed you!"

  29. TribecaMike

    I knew Harold Ford Jr. would stoop to anything to get elected, or at least accepted, in NY, but didn't expect him to play the sex change card. Kudos Harry for reviving the old Betsy McCaughey ploy!

  30. Katydid

    Ladies and Germs, I give to you the Jewish Sarah Palin, from Brooklyn yet. She tosses the Word Salad as if she were on leave from prison.

  31. MonkeyMotion

    Let's see: she's stupid, religious, has the verbal capacity of a 7th grader, and sights on the White House.

    Yessireebob, another qualified GOP Presidential candidate is ready for 2016!

    1. TribecaMike

      In that case, she'd better start shopping around now for the best rhinoplasty clinic, cuz she ain't gonna pass as a cracker with that honker.

  32. Chet Kincaid

    Is Noo Yawk the source of this new pronunciation that all the young people have, where they scrape out the middle consonant in a word — as Mindy says, "Man-Ha-Unh"? Anyway, she is adorable, and gets an extra "bless your heart" for getting out of the car and throwing a "you people" at her black would-be constituents while weaving a tale with her hands.

    1. SpeedoFart

      Sadly, it's from upstate NY– specifically the Albany area. Seems to have drifted down state. Sorry everyone! Sorry!

      (It's taken me years to drop that "accent".)

        1. calliecallie

          OMG, I used to do that. I grew up in upstate NY. I didn't even know it was a thing.

        2. SpeedoFart

          Dude, I *still* can't say "kitten". It comes out like keet-tEHN– just imagine Ricky Ricardo after being smacked in the mouth with a 2×4.

  33. Poindexter718

    OMG, I used to live in this area and thank G-d (cuz that's how the O's write it) i don't anymore because this girl would get in my face and exhaust me with her earnest and hyperkinetic kvelling. K-Park is much more chill.
    And I don't think the citizens of Flatbush will ever elect someone who so cavalierly makes an illegal jew-turn on Avenue J.

  34. widestanceromance

    I'm still smarting from my ill-fated prediction that Kristi Noem was to become the Hot Slut of the Term. Have not heard anything about her, but of course, am not nearly interested enough to dump her name in my search box.

  35. Tundra Grifter

    When she promises the Black dude in the hat "I'm going to represent what you want…" she forgot to first ask what he wants her to represent.

    A good sales pitch is founded on the mark's wants and needs. They need to know that you care before they care about what you know. Don't start selling until you find out what they are buying.

  36. ttommyunger

    Couldn't open the vid…Am I missing a potential fap-fest? 'Cause I havn't fapped today. Oh well, the day is young.

    1. CalamityJames

      Watch 'Faces of Death 3', the one where they chase down and murder the elephant. Same diff.

  37. tessiee

    White lipstick is not only a look that is at least 40 years out of date, and a difficult shade to wear (it didn't even look good on Angie Dickinson), it is also terribly unflattering to brunettes wtih olive complexions. Given Miss Mindy's lips, features (a bright color would draw attention to her lips, thereby helping to balance out that large projecting object in the middle of her face), and skin tones, I would go with a rosy or berry stain lipgloss, or a true red.
    Oh, yeah, and I didn't watch the video, because duh.

  38. SpeedoFart

    I wanted to see if she sounded like Dr Girlfriend, but honestly, I couldn't get past the porn music.

  39. CthuNHu

    Sarah Silverman is awesome. I don't know how she comes up with these utterly absurd yet compelling characters and transforms herself utterly into them. And it really says something about her commitment to her art that she's willing to do the Charlize-Theron-in-Monster thing and turn her gorgeous self into this repellent and unattractive creature.

  40. MrsConclusion

    What's with that Subliminal Seduction quickie flash of ORTHODOX? I had a sudden inexplicable urge to go to the lobby, buy a large Pepsi, cut my hair, wear a wig, and have six children.

  41. GregComlish

    Yikes. Her voice couldn't get more husky if it was sold in the children's section at Walmart

  42. GregComlish

    I loved her story about getting into politics, how she was so inspired when Rudy Guilini momentarily feted her childhood ego. For years these entirely meaningless interactions with a distant authority figure allowed her to vicariously live a life of importance and sustained her inflated ego, even as her peers rejected her for her obnoxious personality, narcissism, witlessness, idiocy, shallowness, lack of talent, gross materialism, mediocre looks, laziness, arrogance, showiness, egocentric bloviating, false piety, etc. And while she also lacked the self-awareness to even identify any of numerous flaws, she still knew she could transcend all the obstacles in front of her and one day become a force in Republican politics.

  43. extreme_left

    Still I think it's great that a transgender person is getting out and about, not scared of judgement.

  44. valmach

    Mindy as far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a (Senator )gangster. To me, being a (Senator )gangster was better than being President of the United States. That is until I am President of the United States (Jewish Orthodox Mafia)

    Man on the Street You're a pistol! You're really funny. You're really funny!
    Mindy: What do you mean I'm funny?
    Man on the Street: It's funny, you know. It's a good story, it's funny, you're a funny girl!
    Mindy [dangerously] What do you mean? You mean the way I talk? What?
    [Everyone becomes quiet]
    Man on the Street: It's just, you know, you're just funny. It's funny, the way you tell the story and everything.
    Mindy Funny how? I mean, what's funny about it?
    Man on the Street , no, you got it all wrong —
    Mindy: You gonna vote for me or what ?

    Oh wait aren't these the same Orthodox Jews that brutally suppress the Palestinians …
    inbreed and won't change clothes..

    That is exactly what the Senate needs , another right wing , religious zealot with her hands on the levers of power..

    Orthodox girls cant' be Bat Mitzvahed. What kind of orthodox is this girl? Is she orthodox like Giuliani was married?

    Oh, and hey, sweetie. When someone tells you LIKE THAT they will be voting for you, it is sort of code for "fuck off, but the camera is running."
