Game over, man! GAME OVER!OMG you guys! Wingnut blogger Robert Stacey “The Other McCain” McCain, who we’d never even heard of before we did our very first Wonket six months ago, has a very important article about how a plucky 16-year old girl TOTALLY DESTROYED liberal media figure Eric Boehlert in a Twitter argument about Benghazi. Eventually — get this — Boehlert blocked the girl’s tweets, which means that she WINS THE INTERNET and no liberal can ever make fun of FoxNews again! Strange, now that we think about it, that OTHER post we did about this McCain guy was also about something that sounded like junior high school gossip.

OK, so here’s the skinny, as documented in painfully exhaustive detail on the Wingnutosphere’s Newspaper of Record, First, Boehlert tweeted the completely treasonous opinion that Fox News has been pimping “Benghazigate” well beyond its actual significance, or in Twitchyspeak, “nothing more than part of a grand right-wing nutjob conspiracy” (which, of course, it kind of is, except that “conspiracy” is too grand a term; “strategy to open up a Senate seat by torpedoing Susan Rice” is probably better). In any case, here’s the inflamatory series of twats:

Gauntlet: THROWN! Apparently, Boehlert’s error was in responding exactly as dismissively to Ms. Bowra’s strawman as he would to idiocy written by someone of voting age. He should have checked her profile so that he could have… we don’t know what. Ignored it, maybe. It’s a no-win situation, really, since any disagreement is, of course, “picking on a kid.” So anyway, Bowra fired back:

A devastating reply! Take that, LIE-beral! Twitchy staff comment:

Hey Eric, #trytokeepup with the fact that your arguments are being demolished by a whip-smart young woman.

You see, we thought that an argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition, not just the just the automatic gainsaying of any statement the other person makes. But apparently, No it isn’t!

So, yes, there actually is an investigation. But that’s not the point. What is the point?

"Red herring" is a totally racist phrase, too We see. Because the discussion up to this point had totally been about MSNBC.

Another guy jumps in to pick on the poor lass, and Ms. Bowra’s comeback is clearly why wingnuts describe her as a “very bright young woman”:


It’s so TRUE! She really understands how we libruls all talk about Obama every day! Or at least how commenters on wingnut blogs think we libruls all talk about Obama every day, which is probably close enough.

Boehlert by this point has left the thread, which proves his cowardice. RS McCain writes up his exciting story about how Bowra totally pwned Boehlert, and tweets Bowra to congratulate her. She replies!

And now you know...the REST of the story!

The triumphant McCain declares victory:

Badass lefty “intellectual” Eric Boehlert blocks a 16-year-old girl?

It’s hard to imagine how his humiliation could be more complete.

Really. He actually typed that.

Unanswered questions: Is Eric Boehlert going to cry when he finds he has been uninvited from McCain’s birthday party? Will Eric Boehlert be excluded from the cool kids’ lunch table? And is Mr. McCain aware that, via the immutable law of “I’m rubber, you’re glue,” he is actually now the completely humiliated one?

In any case, America, meet Conservative America’s latest young hero, Bethany Bowra, who proved that, even at the tender age of sixteen, she is able to sling meaningless, fallacious invective and to parrot Fox News every bit as effectively as Yahoo News commenters thrice her age. As McCain notes, she followed up her demolition of Boehlert by “tak[ing] on Sandra Fluke and the baby-hating feminist Left:”

Yes, I said it: Today’s feminists, whether directly or indirectly, are actively advocating the murder of unborn baby girls.

Once again, credit where credit is due: That is every bit as sophisticated an anti-abortion argument as we’ve seen from people many years her senior.

    Actually sounded kinda cool, like a secret Internets sex club or something…

    If blocking someone means you've lost, Erick Erickson over at Red State loses about twenty times a day.

  • commiegirl99

    uh first or something. You guys I am so tired.

    • Awww, commiegirl99. We are forever indebted to you for your tireless labor in feeding our pathetic snark addictions. Get some rest. We love you.

    • AlterNewt

      Perhaps a 7&7 would help you to forget the 403s and 404s. Can't imagine the hair-pulling behind the scenes stuff you've been having to do, but thanks.

    • Tundra Grifter


      I would like to say "Thank you very much!" for keeping Wonkette alive and well! About this time you're probably thinking buying that gay porn site would have been a better investment.

      I know you've had server issues all week (and I'm not writing about a tough time getting a beer in a bar) and now this FORBIDDEN matter. I can only guess how breathtakingly frustrating it must be for you.

      Please know that your hard work is appreciated.

      If you were homeless and barefoot on the streets of New York, I would personally purchase a new pair of boots and some sox for you.

      PS: The homage to Peggy of Noonaton was brilliant!

      • commiegirl99

        I read that as “and some sex for you.” Which I thought was terribly sweet.

        • Tundra Grifter

          Dulce – but could we please skip the boots? At least on the first date?

    • Someday, you will look back on this and become enraged all over again.

          • gullywompr

            That's odd, I say "boo" when I don't like somebody. I'm not up on my slang, is it like how kids today say something is "sick" when really it's not, or "bad ass" means something else entirely?

          • I reserve "boo" for Halloween.

          No offense. House of Wagstaff has it's own bad kitty. We pretty much pay for her house. She learned the ancient masterful art of training her humans well and at such a tender age! It was a thing to behold. And she will not let us do anything until we give her the gravy-drenched canned food that she's currently going through at an impressive. She can be really sweet during the times when she's not trying to strip our limbs of flesh.

          • bobbert

            It's been pissing down rain here, so naturally my attack cat took advantage of the downpour to catch a fucking sparrow. While I was watching.

            Luckily, I don't give much of a shit about sparrows.

          • BadKitty904

            But he did it for YOU. Now his feelings will be hurt if you don't eat it.

          • bobbert

            So far, he doesn't bring me trophies. I just hope the little birdie bones don't puncture any internals.

    • BerkeleyBear

      I'm pretty sure that is a cat doing a flying high kick into the side of a dog's head, and the dog (per normal) loving the attention.

    • Terry

      Pure awesomeness

    • ButthurtWingers2012

      it's a work of fiction (because cats are wussies) essentially taking a picture of a dog running like an idiot and superimposing a cat kicking said dog in face. It's actually pretty clever but it would be funnier to have a cat kicking a baby in the noggin….just saying but cats beating up humans is always hilarious. Especially when it happens for real…

      • remember that psycho kitty video making the rounds a couple years back? cats beating up kids is all kinds of awesome.

    • Geminisunmars

      Well, I'm sure that is not a black or chocolate lab. Looks like a pure bred meth lab to me.

      • bobbert

        I was gonna say something about bull terrier, but then I read your comment again, so I'll just shut up now.

    • Negropolis

      It's this thing, like, when you put a midget on roller skates and then you, like, send him down Lombard…

      • bobbert

        Nah, you can't ever build up any speed on Lombard, on account of all the switchbacks.

        • Negropolis

          Exactly. lol

          I suspect only those that watch SNL will get the parody.

          • bobbert

            As it happens, I don't get the parody. I've just walked up and down Lombard.

    • NorthStarSpanx

      If Bristol and Willow weigh in, look out world!

  • mrpuma2u

    She wasn't blocked cuz she was spewing non-nonsensical troll speak, no, never….

    • ButthurtWingers2012

      Because her points were completely moronic and indicative of someone who actually does not understand the original tweet. Saying Faux Nuuz mentions "Benghazi 1200 times a day" does not equate to "should we investigate it?"…in fact that's a non-sequitor because Faux digging up shit for mouthbreathers is not asking for an official investigation. If she wanted to actually address the point she'd ask "should there be a criminal investigation?" but she's a dumb young Faux bimbo in training. Boehlert's reaction back "duh, congress is already investigating it" is pretty much all you can say. My only question is, how long before the inevitable arrest of this McCain for statutory rape? Dude was obviously trollin' for young wingnut vagina with his remarks…and he's stupid.

    • You know what's weird to me? Now they're talking about the "liberal bubble" we live in. This is obviously a response to all the talk recently about the conservative bubble THEY live in that led them to think Romney was going to win in a landslide.

      Has anybody noticed how they quickly adopt all of our criticisms of them, no matter how nonsensical those criticisms are when inverted? It's almost like the words mean nothing, they're just names you call people you don't like. That's why Bronco Bama is a fascist and a socialist and a communist and a Muslim and an atheist and yet still a fanatical follower of Jeremiah Wright.

      Maybe that's why you can't have an intelligent conversation with them. You are making arguments, they think you're just calling them names. So the only logic they require is "I'm rubber and you're glue – everything you say bounces off me and sticks to you!"

      God I hate them. With votes, of course.

      That's my take away on the entire (heh, heh) affair…I don't care which side you're on, arguing that a partisan media red meat fest constitutes an ACTUAL investigation is moronic. This McCain is either uneducated (likely) or completely missed "logical form" writing…dude just cheered on non-sequitors…I wonder if he claps when Ralf Wiggum says "my cat's breath smells like cat food!" to answer a quiz question too…

  • Dok, I love you, you know it, but you have to admit, compared to Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O', Everything on Fox News other than Shep Smith, K-Lo, J-Go, NRO, Red State, etc. etc., Ms. Bowra is an intellectual heavy weight.

    • ButthurtWingers2012

      Considering their most influential idea came from an immature turd who developed his big 'no tax' idea at age 13? yes, I'd say this is pretty much the best they can do. Wingnuts are just excited to have someone under 50 advocate their idiocy and R.S. McCain is contemplating stautory rape…

  • I wonder how often FOX News reported on the death of any given four soldiers between 2002 and 2008 in Iraq or Afghanistan?

    Real classy, Dok, picking on a little girl, who probably still plays with little pony dolls….

    Oh…. right.

      Hahahahaha how insane can they get? I mean these are the same people that claimed that "While still alive, Kim also reportedly invented the hamburger, wrote 1,500 books in college and shot 11 holes-in-one the first time he played golf, according to Time magazine."

      I just… Wow. That's the easiest parody to make ever.

      • BadKitty904

        Hells, I didn't even know unicorns HAD "lairs"…

        • snowpointsecret

          Dragons have lairs. Dragons are mythical creatures. Unicorns are also mythical creatures. Therefore, by the transitive property of bullshit, unicorns have lairs, right?

          • BadKitty904

            That certainly makes more sense than Pyongyang's (srsly?) missle program…

          • Weren't their missiles called 'DongDongs' or something?

          • gullywompr

            Nodong, No shit – Nodong.

          • BadKitty904

            That's some global-class funny shit, right there.

    • I'm still trying to pronounce Sinjungdonggukyojisungnam.

      • snowpointsecret

        Probably slightly harder than Papahanaumokuakea.

      • BadKitty904

        "It's pronounced 'e-GRE-gi-ous'."

      • not that Dewey

        Oh, come on. It's no worse than Eyjafjallajökull.

      • MosesInvests

        It's pronounced "Throat Warbler Mangrove".

    • Why can't they believe something like Kim-Jong Il's "divine birth" consisted of being shit out of a unicorn on top of Mt. Kumsu? That would be the best propaganda evar.

      • BadKitty904

        Just wait…

      • snowpointsecret

        They do say he was born under a double rainbow which is already pretty much the best incarnation of an internet meme ever.

            No it's perfectly right. Imagine Kim Jong Un going


          • What does it MEAN?!!!!!! …..DAD???

      Well that's just ridiculous. Any fool knows that unicorns don't live in lairs. They live in libraries.

      • not that Dewey

        Is it even possible for Bronyism to "jump the shark"?

        • Doktor Zoom

          Some say it already has — for godssake, if I know about it, that's a distinct probability. Like any fandom, it'll have a heyday (now, or maybe six months ago) and then it will taper off to a core of fans who will run conventions until the heat death of the universe.

          As for dying out, see maybe fans of Dark Shadows. (I originally typed Trekkies, but they're the ur-fandom…not a fair comparison).

            This is a show that's actually on in my house sometimes, owing to a member of its target audience living here. Hearing it once a week from two rooms away through a closed door constitutes overexposure, for me.

    • Much less coordinating the attack, so that the opponent can be accused of attacking a teen-age girl.

  • el_donaldo

    That kid was no 16 year old — she sounds exactly like the bitter ladies with little education who spout off on comment boards at TDB.

  • Biel_ze_Bubba

    So a clueless 16-year-old, spouting non sequiturs and/or Faux News sound bites, is a wingnut heroine. Color me surprised.

  • Barrelhse

    Bethany- You're beautiful, honey; don't ever change.

  • snowpointsecret

    This news was so last month.

  • Hope for all her wingnutt pals that she doesn't go to an actual school which teaches real stuff and makes you think (not like Liberty You or Bible Kollage) and suddenly morph into a liebrul.

    This is good news for Robert Stacey McCain.

    OT: And, the Mississippining of Michigan continues unabated…

    A bill that would allow concealed weapons in daycares and theaters is already through the Senate.

    Right now those places are among a list of pistol-free zones, but the new law would make it okay to have a weapon there, if you have the right training.

    "It'll be the citizens that have special enhanced training, and retired police officers, off-duty police officers that will be there to protect the children, or protect whatever location it is," Sen. Jones said.

    That's not the way Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth sees it though.

    "Think about this: You're at a University of Michigan football game on Saturday, you've got 119,000 screaming people, and half of them are drunk," Sheriff Wriggelsworth said. "Do you really want the guy sitting next to you to have a gun?"

    All we can do is hope that Governor Snyder doesn't sign this, and, unfortunately, despite his relatively moderate image, he's vetoed less than a handful of bills that have reached his desk for his crazy-ass caucus.

    • I think Snyder is what passes for being a moderate Republican regarding economics–for example he opposes making Michigan a right to work (for less) state–and really doesn't care much about social/cultural/mind-control issues. So he may just say "WTF, I got state troopers to protect me, I'll sign it.

      • Negropolis

        He doesn't oppose Right-to-Work, he has simply said it would be "divisive" without ever taking a side even when asked directly. And as a former businessman, you sure as hell better believe that he'll sign anything that makes Michigan more "business-friendly" whatever the fuck that means. The crazy thing is that even the state Chamber of Commerce told them to knock the shit off with Right-to-Work-(for-Less) legislation.

        Trust me, if it gets to his desk, he'll sign it. I don't trust this man further than I can throw him. In many ways, he's worse than the Republican warriors in othere states because he doesn't own up to his own craziness.

  • BleuBunny

    Why, OH WHY, did I pay for all that therapy? I am so self-flagellating for not anticipating this. If I had mentally and emotionally remained a 14-year old girl, I could SO be rolling in the fame and dough by now. Stupid. Stupid, stupid, stupid (keeps banging head on fist).

  • solrobins6

    If this is winning, I hate to see what losing looks like for them.

    And by hate I mean LOVE LOVE LOVE!

  • Oh, Bethany is such a romantic. You mean lefty-types are hurting her girlish feelings. Why won’t you stop oppressing her with your cold, hard facts and let the poetry that burns deep within her soul flow forth?

    I'm impressed with how lazy the Benghazi conspiracy theorists are, in that they don't even really bother to come up with a conspiracy theory.

    Compare them with the birthers, who went through all that effort of photoshop "analysis," (mis)translation of Kenyan videos, etc. The Benghazoids are far more efficient. Just keep saying "Benghazi" over and over again; it's good enough.

    • kittensdontlie

      This is how you handle a smart alecky 14-year old:

      The conservative website Daily Caller, meanwhile, quotes an anonymous conservative who attended CPAC in 2009 and is less than impressed with Krohn. The unnamed person claims Krohn never should've been in the spotlight, calling him "smug, condescending, and obviously completely ignorant of what he was saying."

  • LibertyLover

    Can't really attack a 16 year old who probably only watches what her parents watch…

    • Misty Malarky

      16 years old and she's watching the same programs as her parents? Why, there's the problem right there.

      She should be watching vampire soft porn with all the other kiddies.

  • Tundra Grifter

    Bethany: There is still hope for you. We saw in this election cycle a young man who became a16-year old conservative icon in 2008 by supporting Sen. John McCain come to his senses and speak out for Mr. Obama. Of course, getting invited to too many conservative private parties may have had some influence on that decision. And you've got nothing to worry about in that department, begin a girl and all.

    Stil – we won't give up on you! You may see the light.
