Charlotte Day Two Maybe: Dave Weigel Is A Crazy Bitch

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

WEIGEL!!!!Sorry we did not blog at you yesterday; we left Jim here in charge at the house (la Casita de Wonkadonk) and went into the Charlotte wilds in search of our badges (WE NEED STINKING BADGES), and then we ate a bunch of acid with one of our dudes from Boston (we have dudes from Boston), and now Jim is probably going to quit because of how we left him all day yesterday and then ran out of battery and never checked in and were just on acid all night like a fucking hippie 17-year-old girl getting arrested protesting the Original Gulf War. 1990, represent! Also, you guys, make Jim not quit! More importantly, however, did we mention world-famous walking Slate Explainer Dave Weigel is a crazy bitch?

We don’t want to brag, but we have met Dave Weigel in person several times since Tampa, and also too we are actually housemates at la casita! No, we’re cool, we explained to people who wondered if we could really Wonkette it up when we are just little ole us from little ole Los Angeles instead of real punditer types from the Beltway, we are housemates with Dave Weigel! Every morning he stumbles in at a million o’clock, and then when the rest of us are just lying on our couches (see: now) too hungover to even log into the secret chat room, let alone do any work, he has been up and gone for FUCKING HOURS covering some Mass delegate breakfast or random bullshit, doing the work of 10 strong men!

And so we saw him again last night — closing time, of course, we had watched Bill Clinton’s A+++ of a American Politicks primer on the big screens outside the Chris Matthews MSNBC doohickey at some sort of fake shopping Experience (it was probably even called the Experience) because the fire marshall cut off the line at the arena two people ahead of us, and we explained to everybody that to apologize for the inconvenience, they would like to us to take the umbrella of our choice from the 30-yard pile of left umbrellas on the way out, but we were kidding, but then a guy told us really, no, take an umbrella, they would all end up in a dumpster, so we chose something cute and little and sort of Pucci-stripesy, so thanks someone! So did you see Ol’ Bill’s speech? FOR THE RECORD, we were not a fan ever since the Welfare Act, which is why we voted Nader in both ’96 and 2000 (and yes, we are sorry), but hooboy CHAINS Y’ALL FUCKIN’ GREAT SPEECH BUBBA AND BIG DOG AND WHATNOT YEEHAW, it was even better than it would have been if it was Bud Hammond from Political Animals, that’s how good it was!

So we were at some sort of “bar” or “ale house,” and we’d seen Charlie Crist already on the street and been all “HOLY SHIT!” and what do you think Charlie Crist said? He said “Holy S to you too!” we are not even kidding he said that. So gorgeous in person, so very gay.



So there we were keeping our jaw from falling off our face with a last call beer, when out walked WEIGEL! “Hey Weigel!” we said, “what do you think about giving me a ride home to the place where we both live?” And here was his answer, before disappearing into the night:

“I could do that. Theoretically.”

And that was literally the nicest thing he has said to us in the two weeks since we met him.

WEIGEL!!!!!

See, good ol' Dok Zoom blogged with us, not at us.
Missed you, anyway, so whatevs.

Doktor Zoom September 6, 2012 at 10:34 am

I prefer to think that I blogged all over your faces, but as you imply, this may all be a matter of perception.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:38 am

Blogkake?

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 10:43 am

I, for one, had my Blog Goggles on the entirety of Wednesday.

LibertyLover September 6, 2012 at 10:55 am

As long as you didn't get any in my hair, I'm ok with that.

MissTaken September 6, 2012 at 12:04 pm

It's been tagged POV, facial, shaved

JadedDissonance September 6, 2012 at 11:18 am

I haven't been a fan of Weigel since he put out some claptrap about hating cyclists. But I didn't vote for Nader.

Andrew Drinker September 6, 2012 at 10:11 am

"What you have just said, is the most insanely idiotic thing I have ever heard. At no point, in your rambling incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul."

Guppy September 6, 2012 at 10:39 am

I wish I was that coherent while drunk/hungover.

This is why She is Our Editrix.

Terry September 6, 2012 at 10:11 am

Rebecca, are you swooning in those photos?

NorthStarSpanx September 6, 2012 at 10:16 am

You'd think she'd be "one and done" with being a beard.

Designer_Rants September 6, 2012 at 10:11 am

Jim should not quit. Theoretically.

smitallica September 6, 2012 at 10:11 am

He is a crazy bitch.
So I'm assuming, therefore, that he fucks so good you're on top of it?

commiegirl99 September 6, 2012 at 10:16 am

Beg pardon? Where's the bouncer???

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:17 am

You don't really expect us to believe…? This! Is! WONKETTE!

fuflans September 6, 2012 at 10:19 am

i think, technically, YOU are the bouncer.

thatsitfortheother1 September 6, 2012 at 10:33 am

Metaphorically also too.

Gay Charlie looks like he's got a hella grip.

sullivanst September 6, 2012 at 10:46 am

The number of handies Repubs give each other, I'm sure they all have powerful grips. Just not on reality.

Able to crush an iron bar with their right hand. Unable to lift a fork with the left.

Texan_Bulldog September 6, 2012 at 10:13 am

Bill Clinton: still capable of kicking ass, taking names & getting more tail than a jock at a drunken sorority party. Woo hoo…I am in love all over again.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:15 am

Greatest. Fucking. President.

In all senses of the phrase.

thatsitfortheother1 September 6, 2012 at 10:26 am

Taught the Republicans a lesson about the Ovum Office.

fartknocker September 6, 2012 at 10:20 am

Last night was the most educational and interesting speech on policy and politics I've ever witnessed. I was blown away at Bill Clinton's ability to convey facts. I suspect our President will do an even better job of explaining his plans tonight.

It would be awesome if I could vote for Hillary for POTUS in 2016….or Bill.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:23 am

I said at my blog this morning that, whoever choreographed this convention, with Michelle Tues and Clinton last night, has set up POTUS for either the best speech of his life or the biggest comedown since Eastwood saw an imaginary president

thatsitfortheother1 September 6, 2012 at 10:26 am

Debby Downer's Blog?

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:28 am

I'm not sure she posted anything on it, and it took me a moment to catch the reference.

Terry September 6, 2012 at 10:55 am

If Obama delivers an equally strong speech tonight as those given by Michelle and Bill, the only way Barry can lose is if the GOP'ers uncover photos of him in bed with a dead, male, teenage, card carrying member of Al Qaida and his pet goat.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 11:04 am

Ironically, McNaughton's next mural…

tessiee September 6, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Or, you know, outspend him 20 to 1.

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 10:34 am

I do hope she runs. I am all into getting Hillz at POTUS in 2016.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:39 am

What if Michelle runs?

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 10:43 am

ACTOR!!!! You are making my life difficult.

UnholyMoses September 6, 2012 at 10:51 am

Fuck. Yes.

Hell, I'd find a way to vote for her twice just to piss off the GOP.

GeorgiaBurning September 6, 2012 at 11:04 am

Best Democratic President in my lifetime. And as Michael Moore put it, a very successful Republican President, as well.

fartknocker September 6, 2012 at 11:07 am

Well said sir.

James Michael Curley September 6, 2012 at 11:16 am

Clinton's 1992 victory would not have been possible without an organization called The Democratic Leadership Conference. They had over half the democratic members of congress as card carrying members and vast numbers of state democratic officials. Their major Raison d'être was to save the Democratic Party from its liberal drift during the post Johnson era and to adapt to the defeat of Carter under Reagan. Most of those I met were smug, self-satisfied neophytes who were going to save the 'Dukakis Democrats' from themselves.

That said, It looks like their web site; http://www.dlc.org, has not been updated since late 2010.

Mumbletypeg September 6, 2012 at 10:13 am

So in the past week in various wonk pages we've been shown a LizGlover tweet, a reference to a SKS text, a Nooningtonshire revisited, a comment from RileyWaggs, and a confrontation with Weigel.
Now all we need is Benincasa to make an appearance and This Week in Wonkette Retrospective will be nearly complete.

Texan_Bulldog September 6, 2012 at 10:17 am

I've seen her on MSNBC a lot. She's not as funny–I think she has to be all 'serious' and grown up now since she works for the Guardian (I believe).

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:30 am

What is it about teh TeeVee and real media that makes people change what got them there in the first place? I've done one radio show and was as snarky and sarcastic as I am in type and…

Oh. Wait…

BerkeleyBear September 6, 2012 at 11:40 am

Maddow is the same snarktastic wonk goddess she ever was. But I agree she's the exception.

FlownOver September 6, 2012 at 10:35 am

Sometimes it's OK to play grownup, as long as you're really still all about Butterstick and buttsecks on your own time.

Texan_Bulldog September 6, 2012 at 10:15 am

Don't forget Jack Stuef & Ken Layne (the original loveable Wonkette curmudgeon).

Jim Newell September 6, 2012 at 10:58 am

I was thisclose to getting ken to liveblog one night but he had to go run his desert cult with the dog or something.

Texan_Bulldog September 6, 2012 at 11:12 am

You need to offer him more rum…or TNT…or whatever he's up to these days.

MLHencken September 6, 2012 at 11:25 am

I don't know if my fragile psyche can handle another episode of "Doomer Porn with Ken"

SayItWithWookies September 6, 2012 at 12:13 pm

I miss the rambling desert tortoise-Inland Empire updates too.

Troubledog September 8, 2012 at 4:02 pm

How much did he end up getting for that rusty old cross?

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 11:01 am

If Jack Stuef dropped in to comment, wouldn't we have to retard his commentary?

freakishlywrong September 6, 2012 at 10:20 am

And a sorta cartoon curmudgeon…

Mumbletypeg September 6, 2012 at 11:40 am

And a kind of roguish, outspoken, begging-to-be-banned, token NRA-braggin', outlandish but devastatingly funny comment-contributor nihilist Neilist~

Spanky2b has been stalking around comments, feels like 2010 all over again.

He's currently three of my 'Last 5 visitors' – and yours, and probably most of the other Wonkette regulars.

Doktor Zoom was holdin' down the fort for ya… doin' the snark pretty good.

HempDogbane September 6, 2012 at 10:14 am

Weigel's version of this will have a catchier headline.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:14 am

What happened to Charlie Crist's eyes? Did the Devil take him over?

thatsitfortheother1 September 6, 2012 at 10:18 am

freakishlywrong September 6, 2012 at 10:21 am

Long ago. When he decided to "turn" gehy.

Oblios_Cap September 6, 2012 at 10:51 am

Is he gay? But But But he has a "wife"!

Actually, his gheyness is probably the worst kept secret in the state.

cc423 September 6, 2012 at 1:49 pm

The sexy gay devil!

Lucidamente1 September 6, 2012 at 10:14 am

Does Wonkette create some sort of space-time distortion such that every single one of its photographs is poorly lit and out of focus? Or is it the radiance of our Editrix?

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:18 am

I vote the latter, since the photos of Eastwood show him clearly, yet she's out of focus. She dazzles, I tells ya!

BelleSC September 6, 2012 at 11:00 am

She dazzles, I tells ya!

That she does.

frostbitefalls September 6, 2012 at 10:36 am

And what's with the parking ramps?

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:48 am

That's a euphemism for tits I've not heard before.

thatsitfortheother1 September 6, 2012 at 10:55 am

It's in the book, just before warheads.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 11:02 am

Terry September 6, 2012 at 10:56 am

I think she must move around like a hummingbird.

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 11:06 am

Reminds me of the population of the planet Scalos.

James Michael Curley September 6, 2012 at 11:22 am

An aurora appears when she shows herself to mere mortals. Our grandchildren's grandchildren will be flocking to her holy font to drink from its curved, magnificent, porcelain vessel.

tessiee September 6, 2012 at 12:33 pm

"to drink from its curved, magnificent, porcelain vessel

OK, I'm positive that this is a euphemism for SOMETHING, but do I want to know what?

James Michael Curley September 6, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Ask your dog.

Stevola September 6, 2012 at 1:42 pm

It's the acid

weejee September 6, 2012 at 10:14 am

“I could do that. Theoretically.”

Leaving himself some Weigel room?

el_donaldo September 6, 2012 at 10:15 am

Hey, don't broadcast that!!! Do you want Tucker and the Daily Failure to launch an investigative report about bloggers sharing living arrangements? That could blow this whole election thing wide open!

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:19 am

Heh heh.

You said "blow"

Heh heh

Doktor Zoom September 6, 2012 at 10:35 am

heh… and "wide open" haw…

freakishlywrong September 6, 2012 at 10:15 am

Perhaps it was brown acid?

widestanceromance September 6, 2012 at 10:30 am

Hope she has some beer and Allman Brothers handy.

sullivanst September 6, 2012 at 10:52 am

Everyone should, always.

Zombie Charlie Crist! Run for your lives!!

LibertyLover September 6, 2012 at 10:16 am

I would like to say that Darrell Hammond did an excellent impression of Bill Clinton last night at the DNC Convention.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:16 am

Weigel sounds like a bit of a douche, to be honest.

Andrew Drinker September 6, 2012 at 10:19 am

If you read his twitter with any regularity, you'll see that being a douche is kind of his whole bread and butter.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:20 am

I've heard the same about my own self, so perhaps I should investigate.

ElPinche September 6, 2012 at 10:18 am

Rebecca, the power of Crist compels you!! THE POWER OF CRIST COMPELS YOU !!

emmelemm September 6, 2012 at 12:29 pm

HA!

el_donaldo September 6, 2012 at 10:18 am

And, Rebecca, honestly, acid? The 17-year hippie girl can probably dose and get right up the next day doing stuff. At my advanced age of hippiedom, I need at least two days of recovery.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:22 am

Crist, it takes me that long after a six pack.

Terry September 6, 2012 at 10:59 am

Takes me that long after staying up late two nights in a row watching convention speeches. Damn.

jqheywood September 6, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Amen!

tessiee September 6, 2012 at 12:37 pm

"Crist,
it takes me that long after a six pack."

Best typo ever!

UnholyMoses September 6, 2012 at 10:55 am

Tracers whilst trying to drive to work are DOUBLEPLUSS BAD!

Though it did make the commute a lot more … colorful. So to speak.

DahBoner September 6, 2012 at 12:40 pm

It's a trick question.

You can't sleep on acid, man…

ManchuCandidate September 6, 2012 at 10:21 am

You just reminded me how much I missed Liz Glover and her Barbi Cam.

Also Liz and her interview with a dog. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-CSGnT5w5g

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 10:41 am

That is hilarious.

OkieDokieDog September 6, 2012 at 10:21 am

So are you the one who slipped Tom Brokaw the Ambien?

Per TB's tweeter: All is well Early AM I mistakenly took a half dose of Ambien and made less sense than usual. Made a better comeback than Giants…

Football reference. Ugh. Boring. Play some real fútbol, ya know, with your foots and not your brain damaged head.

deanbooth September 6, 2012 at 10:33 am

Made a better comeback than Giants…

Hey! Some of us DVRers haven't watched the end of the game yet (Wonkette liveblog took priority). I dread these spoiler messages from the future.

Somewhere between "John Boehner" and "George Hamilton".

thatsitfortheother1 September 6, 2012 at 10:30 am

On the Boehner absolute scale? Negative 5.

sewollef September 6, 2012 at 10:31 am

A mere two shades lighter than the lightest illegal.

I believe it's otherwise known as, Pantone 132 C. That's what Arizona's cops do when they's tracking down "undocumentados".

I am uncomfortable with any story where the charming handsome character is the former Republican Governor of Florida. I wouldn’t visit Florida if I lost my penis in a freak industrial accident and they had the only viable procedure for replacement.

sewollef September 6, 2012 at 10:28 am

I would.

I like my penis.

Oops, did I misspell that?

tessiee September 6, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Yes; should be "Crappiest".

fuflans September 6, 2012 at 10:25 am

this is curious. last time i checked, weigel was just a blogger.

if he was a real journalist he'd be staying in the bates motel with fox and friends and have his own goddamned parking spot.

fuflans September 6, 2012 at 10:25 am

also rebecca honey, you should probably try eating something – preferably something greasy.

i find that helps.

Red-eye reduction, Becca. It'd stop Charlie Crist from looking like a zombie.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 10:31 am

I've examined the photos and determined that, in fact, she applied red eye reduction. Those are his natural peepers.

Hera Sent Me September 6, 2012 at 10:30 am

Looks like our editrix has figured out how to make getting drunk tax deductible.

Looks, brains and a cast-iron bladder. Talk about the whole package.

No, I think Florida is done with him. He's gone full "trial lawyer" (appearing in ambulance-chaser commercials and everything), and you know how Real America™ feels about that.

Joshua Norton September 6, 2012 at 10:36 am

Gurrrrl, be careful. You may be in danger of turning into the blog world version of Chelsea Handler.

Also, too I understand that the Repugs have retroactively decided they never had a convention this year.

thatsitfortheother1 September 6, 2012 at 10:45 am

Finally I agree with the Republicans on something.

Retroactively.

jqheywood September 6, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Theoretically.

rickmaci September 6, 2012 at 11:06 am

'You may be in danger of turning into the blog world version of Chelsea Handler. '

Ouch. That hurt. (But well played.)

ThundercatHo September 6, 2012 at 10:43 am

Hey, doesn't our Editrix deserve to cut loose? If I were down there without any dependents serious men in suits would have to pull me off Bill. You go ahead and enjoy yourself madam and see if you can find some asses that need kickin' with our girl Sandra Fluke.

HolyCow!! September 6, 2012 at 10:50 am

Do what I do when one of my coworkers screws up. Cut off an appendage and then chain them to the toilet for a few days. Trust me Jim. It works.

UnholyMoses September 6, 2012 at 10:50 am

How do you get around with your eyes closed all the time?

One would think you'd be, like, walking into walls all the time.

"How do you get around with your eyes closed all the time?"

Don't spread it around, but she's related to Earl HIckey.

If Jim quits, we'll all go on a HUNGER STRIKE. And don't think you'll be able to change my mind on this, it'll be like Gandhi and Bobby Sands times a million.

Maybe the iPhone5 camera will have an "I'm so fucking drunk on my ass and need help taking this fucking picture" automatic setting app?

Dear Editrix, Can you tell me how to lay my out of state hands on one of those "Sluts VOTE" buttons? Pretty please.

Watch out for that acid stuff. Didn't you ever read that book by Vonnegut's kid?

prommie September 6, 2012 at 11:56 am

At any event, it looks like this wasn't far off, just acid-induced: http://www.flickr.com/photos/zoooma/3454581387/

"So we were at some sort of “bar” or “ale house,” and we’d seen Charlie Crist already on the street and been all “HOLY SHIT!” "

I woulda been all, "Jesus Christ, it's Charlie Crist!", but "HOLY SHIT!" is good, too.

Dave Weigal is perfect for Slate.

They need writers over there young enough to not even know they were alive during Reagan's Reign of Errors…

hahahahaha oh Becca. You are what we Aussies like to say……completely pissed and shit-faced. Good on ya – you should probably just take the day off now.

We love you Jim, don't quit!!!

Please do not quit Jim. It will make Jeebus cry. It is your patriotic duty to keep on… keep on… snarking.

"…went into the Charlotte wilds… and were just on acid all night like a fucking hippie 17-year-old girl getting arrested protesting the Original Gulf War. 1990, represent!"

Believe it or not, I was in Charlotte the night the Gulf War started! That can't be coincidence, Becca. Shall we have sex?

Remind me of this post if you ever need a lift – because Weigel usually comes across as a genial though contrarian guy, and yet the photo used here resembles that Crispin Glover character who looks like he strangles people with wire while singing his favorite children's song – you know that character from that movie, I think it's called Every Character Crispin Glover Has Ever Played?

Dave and Charlie are prolly raving about seeing YOU, Trix.

Troubledog September 8, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Jim quits all the time. So does that other guy.

Yea, I know. I doubt Michelle will run, tho. I think eight years of the shit she's been put through would be enough.

Then Liz in 2024
