You never wonkadonk in my town >sniff!<

I should have known it was a mistake to move here when I learned we can only get UHF stations.

Barbara_ September 1, 2012 at 10:41 am

Rebecca, tear down the curtains of your hotel room and make a nice new dress. Just make sure to take the curtain rod out before you wear it.

jakegittes September 1, 2012 at 10:49 am

That curtain rod is already spoken for, missy. Rmoney's got it jammed up his ass.

ShreditorsDesk September 1, 2012 at 10:54 am

"I… saw it in a window and I just had to wear it…" -Carol Burnett-

Barbara_ September 1, 2012 at 11:02 am

I am so glad you got that reference! That's when talented people had TV shows and not the freaks who make up reality TV now.

What are you doing tonight, Shreditor? I am going to get a flu shot and eat a chicken pot pie at go to bed at 7P.M.

SorosBot September 1, 2012 at 12:32 pm

Tonight the big thing is the season premier of Doctor Who! Since I don't have cable I'll be watching it by, um, other means (don't judge me, I'm planning on getting the season on Blu-Ray once it's available as I have with every other – well DVD for the earlier ones) which should have it shortly after the original BBC airing before it premiers in the US.

Barbara_ September 1, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Everyone is talking about this on twitter. I may have to watch it to see what it is about.

Chet Kincaid_ September 1, 2012 at 1:08 pm

(tugs left earlobe)

Barbara_ September 1, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Chet, I loved when they would make each other crack up. It was my second favorite show behind Dean Martin.

BoatOfVelociraptors September 1, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Of all the things a long stiff rod is good for.

Butch_Wagstaff September 1, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Supposedly that line got one of the longest laughs from a live audience in TV history.

FakaktaSouth September 1, 2012 at 10:49 am

Oh wow. I JUST woke up in the hotel in Atlanta all confused, like, wait, WHY am I here again? Thank goodness for this. I love 6 o'clock going out times! It's the old that makes it fun. See whoever whenever – I get lost a lot here.

Chet Kincaid_ September 1, 2012 at 10:59 am

Got a head start on the party?

FakaktaSouth September 1, 2012 at 11:02 am

I never stop…Oh geez, that's so far from the truth – honestly I did stay up waywayway late last night though, but the sleeping thing was the first time in forever! I looooove it.

SorosBot September 1, 2012 at 11:14 am

If the demographics are like the Tampa drink up, then we may all know what you look like soon since you could be the only woman there besides our editrix.

FakaktaSouth September 1, 2012 at 11:21 am

Yay! I love dudes and I don't care what anyone knows about how I look. I REALLY DO have all my teeth, and being from Bama, I feel I got something to prove.

Chet Kincaid_ September 1, 2012 at 1:09 pm

Is it like a competitive drinking tour? Will the top partiers at each meetup be invited to a winner-take-all National Drinky on Election Night?

Chichikovovich September 1, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Given what some other people from Bama are going to be proving tonight at around 8:00 + , I assume that you mean you won't be letting anyone you speak to cross the 50 yard line all night.

ttommyunger September 2, 2012 at 7:38 am

Having seen you in the flesh, I can testify you have NOTHING to prove, my dear.

Boojum September 3, 2012 at 7:35 pm

You are a super model.

finallyhappy September 1, 2012 at 12:17 pm

I am coming but I am an older woman

SorosBot September 1, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Have fun, both of you! I'm wondering who else will be at the Philly drinky thing the Tuesday after next since I don't recall many other commenters who have mentioned being from here.

finallyhappy September 1, 2012 at 12:55 pm

I live right next to dc and grew up in Philly but can' t make those-I am in Atlanta this weekend for something else so it is karma, luck, magic, that there is a wonkette stinky thing here

Geminisunmars September 1, 2012 at 12:47 pm

As another older woman, I will be enjoying you vicariously from the Rockies. Take lotsa pictures!

Nothingisamiss September 1, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Fakakta I can't wait to meet you!

SorosBot September 1, 2012 at 11:01 am

Have fun, you Southern Wonketteers! And we'll be seeing you on the East Coast soon, Rebecca!

Limeylizzie September 1, 2012 at 12:43 pm

When on East Coast and where? I keep being in the wrong city, I am back in NYC on Sept 11th.

SorosBot September 1, 2012 at 12:48 pm

I should be at the Philly drinkup Sept. 11; from the announcement ( http://wonkette.com/479480/now-announcing-your-wo… ) they're hitting NYC on the 13th.

Limeylizzie September 1, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Yeah!!!!! I will be jet-lagged as I am taking the red-eye getting into JFK at 5am on the 12th, but I shall attend! I will be solo as MrLL will be in LA. Rebecca, if you need a couch, you are welcome to crash on mine.

fartknocker September 1, 2012 at 11:08 am

I would appreciate it if someone brings a camera without all the Instagram bullshit so we middle Americans can see some of my Wonkette favorites. I do want to see photos of:

1. Ttommy
2. The Editorix in a sexy dress
3. Hopefully the smile and wit of FakaktaSouth
4. The Editorix drinking Reddit bourbon neat
5. A Wonkette reenactment of Clint Eastwood talking to a chair. You pick your favorite political person.

One more thing. We in Austin want a drinky thing. Damn it we're nice people and very hospitable. And if you want, I'll gather up some friends and go shoot guns at inanimate objects.

Have fun and post pictures.

You kids have fun tonight.

FakaktaSouth September 1, 2012 at 11:24 am

I'll be the chair! I love telling people to shut up and go fuck themselves! (whatever) And I will bring my whole smile!

JustPixelz September 1, 2012 at 11:55 am

You just want someone to sit on you. WAIT! I'll be the chair. I'll be the chair.

BarackMyWorld September 1, 2012 at 12:11 pm

2. The Editorix in a slutty dress

IFTFY.

Negropolis September 2, 2012 at 4:39 am

Hey, youse. Our Editrix is a classy dame, see? She'll be wearing a sensibly slutty dress, and don't you forget it.

Negropolis September 2, 2012 at 4:39 am

Hey, youse, our Editrix is a classy dame, see? She'll be wearing a sensibly slutty dress, and don't you forget it.

DaSandman September 1, 2012 at 11:10 am

Come to Boston, you pandering southern fucks. Plenty of left wing revolutionary alcoholics up here.

JustPixelz September 1, 2012 at 11:56 am

Plus you have RomneyCare in case Doctor Zoom needs to treat someone.

boobookitteh September 1, 2012 at 2:29 pm

And there's a commie-themed bar in Cambridge! What could be more perfect for a Wonkette meet up?

WABishop September 1, 2012 at 3:40 pm

Commie-themed & Cambridge? Redundant..

RadioBowels September 1, 2012 at 11:11 am

Rebecca, are you bringing your new boyfriend/bodyguard, Clint?

Preacher_Griz September 1, 2012 at 11:11 am

I'll be at Manuel's but if I see one negro or jew or homo at the bar I'm turning around and heading back down to Griffin !!!

Veritas78 September 1, 2012 at 11:44 am

No messicans, neither!

finallyhappy September 1, 2012 at 12:18 pm

I'm the Jew who will be there- have to figure out the others

Nothingisamiss September 1, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Ohmigod I'm only a fake jew by marriage. I don't fit any of the forbidden demographics.

BoatOfVelociraptors September 1, 2012 at 2:30 pm

The Nords will be easy to spot, with the rivulets of sweat and whatnot.

SorosBot September 1, 2012 at 2:37 pm

There will be Nords there, traveling all the way from Skyrim? At least it should be a nice break from the dragon attacks.

BoatOfVelociraptors September 1, 2012 at 8:22 pm

At least they can fast-travel back.

mayor_quimby September 1, 2012 at 8:39 pm

Well, it is Black Gay Pride, so 2 of those are a sure bet

sbj1964 September 1, 2012 at 11:11 am

When are you going to come to Mobile Alabama?We just had a hurricane come by ,and could use the economic boost from all the alcohol sales to the wankers at Wonkette.

jakegittes September 1, 2012 at 11:17 am

Is that a photo of Mitt and the future Ann Rmoney at the high school dance?

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 1, 2012 at 11:27 am

Is it true that Arlanta is more than just a Delta hub?

Lazy Media September 1, 2012 at 11:53 am

Yes. Atlanta is THE Delta hub.

In case anyone was wondering, Manuel's Tavern was the home bidness of Manuel Maloof, a bigtime local Democratic wheel (and a Ay-rab, albeit Christian and native-born). The Carter Center is just a couple blocks away, and Jimmy occasional wanders through. It's the home bar of Georgia Tech and Emory students, Atlanta cops and firefighters, Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporters (before they moved to the 'burbs), and has gotten all gastro-pubby with the food lately. There will be a lot of people there watching the Auburn-Clemson game, but it's not a sports bar; it's a proper pub.

Preacher Griz, you are almost guaranteed to see a black, gay Jew at the bar. Probably cheering for Auburn.

Chet Kincaid_ September 1, 2012 at 1:16 pm

If Janelle Monae happens to wander by, please worship her for me!!

Arborista September 2, 2012 at 12:48 am

Did you know that she's supposed to be performing at the Dem Convention? She's pretty cool…

Chet Kincaid_ September 2, 2012 at 11:07 am

She's one of Michelle Obama's faves.

fartknocker September 1, 2012 at 1:40 pm

I was impressed that the bar was not located on street named PeachTree. They do love that name for public roads in Atlanta. Your pub sounds like a wonderful, happy place.

Preacher_Griz September 2, 2012 at 10:26 am

Of course. There is SO much miscegenation going on in Atlanta that Baby Jesus has become dehydrated from all the tears.

SorosBot September 1, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Isn't everything in the city fully owned by either Coke or Ted Turner?

Butch_Wagstaff September 1, 2012 at 4:39 pm

Well, there is Tyler Perry Studios.

Pap Finn September 1, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Of course it's more than just a Delta hub. It's also an office park. And if you wander outside the perimeter (I-285), you'll find that it's also a breeding ground for some of the most vicious, hateful, militantly ignorant wingnuts in the country.

Nothingisamiss September 1, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Bless their hearts.

Lazy Media September 1, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Great place to live, Atlanta, but you wouldn't want to visit there. There actually IS a cool Atlanta, in-town neighborhoods like Virginia-Highland, Midtown, Ansley Park, Grant Park, etc., but we don't let tourists go to those places.

Actually, these days everyone just outside I-285 is Messican. Plenty of wingnuts, but mainly of the college-educated, libertarian douchenozzle variety. You have to get pretty far from Atlanta to find actual rednecks any more.

Blueb4sinrise September 1, 2012 at 11:30 am

Rhett! Show us your tax returns!!

BarackMyWorld September 1, 2012 at 11:30 am

I always wanted to remake "Gone With the Wind," except totally Tarantino it and have the slaves revolt and Scarlett die in a hail of gun fire.
"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a fuck."
-Rhett, right before he shoots her

bibliotequetress September 1, 2012 at 11:44 am

I can't wait to see the "I'll never go hungry again" speech at a Weight Watchers meeting.

Geminisunmars September 1, 2012 at 12:53 pm

And the birthing scene would now be an abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic and/or Abortionplex.

Lascauxcaveman September 1, 2012 at 2:39 pm

So who do you have for Rhett, Denzel or Will Smith?

Negropolis September 2, 2012 at 4:43 am

Using "Tarantino" as a verb made my day.

Beowoof September 1, 2012 at 11:31 am

If I hadn't spent all that money on my daughter's wedding last night, I would think about plane tickets after all those pics from Tampa. Sorry, I will have to stay home and crack open a bottle of Charles Shaw tonight with the wife and think of you all.

BerkeleyBear September 1, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Congrats on the nuptials (I assume) and being part of 3 buck chuck nation.

Beowoof September 1, 2012 at 5:41 pm

Thank you, she is happy and that has always mattered most. And 3 buck chuck, will allow me spend my retirement comfortably numb.

The war of northern aggression continues, never forget!

ChernobylSoup September 1, 2012 at 11:34 am

You people are just like George W Bush. The remnants of a hurricane are hovering literally on top of my house right now and you are having a party. Wonkette doesn't care about white middle aged rural Arkansans.

RadioBowels September 1, 2012 at 12:00 pm

I heard Romney is going to fly over in his jet and drop dollar bills like manna, you know, because Romney Cares.

Nothingisamiss September 1, 2012 at 2:57 pm

RomneyCare-his new tax plan for corporations.

Isyaignert September 1, 2012 at 12:07 pm

Good Lawddy Child – That's downright blasphemous of Fux News. But the absolute worst part is reading the comments from the mouth-breathing-knuckle-draggers saying, "Fuk yeah! Obama (spelled in many creative ways) is the anti-Kreist."

I don't know about you, but I'm getting really fukkin' tired of being locked in a room with the slow learners. Enough with you fidiots fukkin' up my country – GTFO!!!

Butch_Wagstaff September 1, 2012 at 8:47 pm

"I do not hate Obama, but I hate the fact that I had to paint this picture."
Two things:
"I do not hate Obama…" Yes, you do.
"…but I hate the fact that I had to paint this picture."
Then why did you?
Fucking asshole.

viennawoods13 September 1, 2012 at 12:00 pm

OT, but watch Jon Stewart from last night. He was on fire, baby!!

SorosBot September 1, 2012 at 12:38 pm

The bit with Jessica Williams (who I see is just 23; damn that makes me feel old) and Al Madrigal searching for minority conventioneers was just awesome, too.

viennawoods13 September 1, 2012 at 12:46 pm

I loved Samantha Bee the other night giving delegates a hard time about choice. And the team treating the states like unsuccessful businesses. They are so good at taking on the GOP ideology and showing how fucking stupid it is. Plus I love Jon when he gets righteously angry.

Lot_49 September 1, 2012 at 1:16 pm

His essay on how Mittens & Co want a 1950s America (where blacks were invisible, US America was invincible, women were all in the kitchen, and the trees were the right height) was really beautiful.

viennawoods13 September 1, 2012 at 1:20 pm

I think it would have to be in his top ten ever.

Lot_49 September 1, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Indeed. Too bad that, like some of Tweety's better sermonettes, it was delivered to the choir.

RadioBowels September 1, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Let's go back to the Ike tax rates on the debt creators too.

Madame Editrix, after Georgia can you bring some pecan pie with you when you get to Seattle? Purty pleaze with sugar on top?

BerkeleyBear September 1, 2012 at 4:48 pm

You know sugar's got nothing to do with pecan pie. Caro corn syrup all the way!

Oh, and if you really want a taste treat, ask for sugar pie in Indiana. Basically pecan pie without the healthy nuts.

DerrickWildcat September 1, 2012 at 12:19 pm

I don't see any Black or Hispanic folks in that picture. Why is that?

Misty Malarky September 1, 2012 at 12:57 pm

The Blacks were happily pickin' cotton and singing tuneful spirituals, unfettered by the worrisomes of being free.

I don't think Hispanics had been invented yet.

BTWBFDIMHO September 1, 2012 at 1:35 pm

True, but the guy on the left bought that jacket at The Mariachi Connection store.

RRoccoco September 1, 2012 at 12:35 pm

I think the Manhattan People's Libation Army would turn out in full force, full dress for a Wonkette Drinky Thingy–please consider taking the campaign to Wall Street. You won't be able to imbibe 32 oz cups of Mountain Dew, per Mayor for Life Bloomberg, but there are much better ways to oil the machinery of Wonkettery.

Limeylizzie September 1, 2012 at 12:49 pm

I know I would, we should have it in my hood in Harlem, there's a really nice place that has delicious chicken, owners are from Morocco, and a happy hour, I believe, it's called 'Native".

SexySmurf September 1, 2012 at 12:47 pm

OT The Old Gray Lady has a postmortem of Clint's speech and it looks like the Romney campaign helped punch him in the dick:

"Romney advisers so trusted Mr. Eastwood, 82, that unlike with other speakers, they said they did not conduct rehearsals or insist on a script or communicate guidelines for the style or format of his remarks."

SorosBot September 1, 2012 at 12:53 pm

This was a great headline on team Romney throwing Clint under the bus:
http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/s

"The Assassination of Clint Eastwood by the Coward Mitt Romney"

James Michael Curley September 1, 2012 at 3:30 pm

"They screwed up the un-screwuppable. This was like having one of the featured guests at the State of the Union drop his trousers on camera. If you botch that, how are you going to execute the more complicated constitutional duties? Mitt Romney can't handle Clint Eastwood trying to do him a favor, and he wants to take on unfriendly negotiations with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Vladimir Putin?"

My thoughts exactly at the time.

Blueb4sinrise September 1, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Mittens has told 533 lies in 30 weeks. Gasp!!!

Lot_49 September 1, 2012 at 1:30 pm

I was listening to Sununu the Elder on NPR's "On the Media" this morning (and wondering why anyone ever interviews this monster) deliver an enraged diatribe about how liberals are always cheating by focusing on facts'n'shit instead of just transcribing what Republicans say. He almost stroked out.

Butch_Wagstaff September 1, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Only 533?

She said she wish I'd come there right away
In Boston, Massachusetts where she lives
I got to get there, oh the love she gives
Catch a plane and soon I will be gone
And I'll be in her arms before too long
In Boston, Massachusetts she'll be there
And we'll be together everywhere
See I'm leaving cause I'm sad
Got a girl and I want to see her bad
You see I'm not leaving cause of you
I just can't stand to sit here feeling blue
Can't go on when I don't like this town
I feel so bad not having her around
In Boston, Massachusetts where she lives
Got to get there, oh the love she gives

Come on over here to Vegas, baby. We're a swing state. If you know what I mean.

Dang, I could come over the hump for that, and I don't even drink!

Negropolis September 2, 2012 at 4:51 am

You're from Pahrump?

Biff September 2, 2012 at 10:02 am

Pahrump Adjacent, anyway. When I worked in Shoshone CA I bought this property for the short commute, within the disputed lands between the states due to the bungled Von Schmidt survey. Never hire a drunk to draw a boundary line for you, is the takeaway.

Negropolis September 2, 2012 at 9:54 pm

I have a warm spot for Pahrump in my heart. It's where we made our annual summer travels to get fireworks across county lines to bring back into Vegas. lol

ttommyunger September 2, 2012 at 7:37 am

Seven A.M. Sunday Morning. The Atlanta Drinky-Thing last night was great fun. Sadly, as a teetotaler, I know this is as good as I'm going to feel all day…..sigh! I took some neat pix of some neat (and hot) chicks, great guys and one youngster; but I'm too fucking dumb to know how to post them anywhere. I've emailed and messaged them around, so maybe they'll see the light of day. Thanks, 'Becca et. al. it was great fun. Mulligans next time if you're feeling brave…..

Barbara_ September 2, 2012 at 8:37 am

Thanks for the photos and updates all last night, Tommy.

Nothingisamiss September 2, 2012 at 8:41 am

SO MUCH FUN!!!! I was sorry I was at the other end of the table from you and yours.

I'm regretting I didn't go to the post drinky dancing…but I feel tired enough as is.

ttommyunger September 2, 2012 at 8:48 am

Was not aware of a post-drinky. Good thing, I would have been out after midnight; no fun for me anymore, sadly. I'll try to chat you up next time around, thanx for the shout.

Boojum September 2, 2012 at 9:54 am

Hey gorgeous!

Nothingisamiss September 2, 2012 at 11:52 am

I made amistake not hitting the dance floor with you crazy kids.

commiegirl99 September 2, 2012 at 12:16 pm

Dude it was super fun.

Boojum September 3, 2012 at 7:23 pm

We need to have another Drinky Thing even if Our Wonkette can't grace us with her presence. Who would come? Me!

We could have an empty chair for Becca and take turns having incoherent rants with it.

commiegirl99 September 2, 2012 at 12:16 pm

Tommy, won't you email me your pix at rebecca at wonkette dot com?

I hate being conspicuous by my absence.

You were missed. I had the chance to meet Prommie! *sniff*

Clearly it was meant to be! Hope y'all all have a great time!

Drinky! Not stinky

Just like it seems to be karma that the Philly drinky thing is while MissTaken will be in town visiting me; and not on Wednesday when it would have probably been impossible for us to attend (since she'll be meeting my friends then).

Oh it's an awesome show; BBC America at nine. But then, I'm a geek who still loves the original show, even with the cheap effects and production values and slow pacing.

Especially if you have never seen a Dr. Who episode before, check the listings for the repeat showings so you can catch up to the whole plot of a single episode as the pace is decidedly faster than many, many shows. If you are concerned about trying to reconcile all the plot mysteries, just go with the flow. Some of us Dr. Who fans who know the show from 40+ years ago can't reconcile all the devices.

All the girls are quite smitten with Matt Smith and all the boys have very naughty thoughts about Karen Gillan

Or both. Ever been to Manuel's?

I seem to recall they were also always doing some long, convoluted parody of "A Star Is Born."

Thanks James. Now I know who to be smitten with on the show.
I got my flu shot and I am awake at 6 A.M. on Sunday. Yeah, nothing wrong with that.

I have awoken at and before dawn my entire life. I have to be very exhausted to sleep past my alarm (which I don’t know if it works because I always wake up and turn it off before it goes off). Sime of us are morning people, some of us are evening people. I wouldn’t know what Leno or Letterman look like were it not for different clips being shown somewhere.As for a flu shot, I guess I’ll get one again this year only so I can hassle both the pharmacy and the insurer like I had to last year. But being in the senior years I can also get one at a county sponsored event in a fire house somewhere, but that’s a different kind of fun because a few let me go into the back room afterwards. But I usually figure I don’t want to diminish the supply for people who really can’t afford it or have to pay a co-pay.

And how. I went up the street to Church and chatted up some adorable child at the bar, came back to Noni's looking for y'all, and it was PACKED. Went to the Clermont, danced till I was about to fall out, and tipped a 66-year-old stripper.

Boojum September 3, 2012 at 8:20 am

First time I've been dancing in 15 years. It showed.

The Man sets up a checkpoint at Mountain Springs now, you never know when you'll get randomly pulled in and searched. Probable cause, they say–I knew sobriety checkpoints would lead to evil…

Slippery slope! Slippery slope!

Biff September 4, 2012 at 12:39 am

True, it wasn't funny at the RNC, either.
