Rachel explains to the world how great Wonkette is.
Rachel explains to the world how great Wonkette is.

Oh hey, what did yr Wonkette do last night? INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW! Well, we were winning trivia with our trivia team at a place that serves alcoholic beverages, and also our words were being read on “The Rachel Maddow Show,” by Rachel Maddow, who LOVES YR WONKETTE SO MUCH. (!!!)

It happened toward the end of the show, as she set up her interview with Louisiana Senate candidate Foster Campbell, a cattle-ranching Democrat who wears Wrangler jeans on his butt. We told you all about him on Wednesday! If you’ll remember, Louisiana’s run-off election is December 10, and if Campbell were to win, Republicans would only hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate, which means it would be easier for Democrats to pull a couple of sane Republicans over to their side, were President Trump to seek congressional authorization to nuke Sweden for making fun of his hair with a funny accent, for example. (HAVE YOU GIVEN DOLLARS TO FOSTER CAMPBELL YET? YOU NEED TO DO THAT, BECAUSE THIS IS IMPORTANT.)

So! Watch the video, where our BFF Rachel called Wonkette “the best website in the world,” and proceeded to read A WHOLE PARAGRAPH we wrote, with our brain:

Here’s the paragraph she read, in case you are disobeying us and not watching the video:

You will do this because, if Campbell wins, the Republicans will only have a 51-49 majority in the Senate, which gives Dems just a little bit more power to push back on Donald Trump’s worst plans. It means it won’t be as much of a stretch to try to form majority coalitions with Republican senators who are occasionally decent on specific issues, like John McCain with Russia or Rand Paul opposing Rudy Giuliani and John Bolton for secretary of State. If 49 Democrats can pull a McCain and a Susan Collins across the aisle to oppose Trump erecting a statue of Vladimir Putin on top of the White House, we might be able to at least mitigate Trump’s damage, is what we mean.

Correct as usual, OURSELVES!

After that, Rachel interviewed Campbell, and you should watch that too, and then give him money, and also pat us on the fanny a million times to congratulate us for being THE BEST.

Now go share this post on the Facebooks, like you are doing EVERY DAY to combat fake news with wonk and style, as you have been instructed.

      Have we ever seen Evan and Rachel in the same room together?

      I’m just asking questions.

        It seems irresponsible not to speculate wildly!

    • Lance Thrustwell

      Well… I like cocktails, and I dig chicks! ‘Sall I’m sayin’.

    I just pead a little.

    “and also pat us on the fanny a million times”

    Our brethren in the British Isles are horrified that Mr Trump has started this new fad in America.

      You know why football players pat each other on the ass during games?
      Because kissing takes too long.

    You realize this means we’ll be first up against the wall when the Committee for Un-American Activities gets restarted.

  • Yr. Gma

    Go Evan! I signed up for the $10-a-week-until-the-December-election plan. (I’m really not a very good drunk since I forget that I’m supposed to drink the vodka after is gets poured into the glass, so this is my would-be liquor money.)

    • Resistinceisnotfutile

      You’re an environmentalist! Washing glasses wastes water! Kudos!

      • Yr. Gma

        My drunkard adult children are appalled at me since the ice in the bloody mary melts before I get around to finishing it. I have tried to be a shiftless drunk in the past, but I just forget the damned drink is there.

        • Resistinceisnotfutile

          Well if you weren’t so stoned… just sayin…

    • Celtic_Gnome

      Hmm. Sounds like you might have a drinking problem.

      • Shanana Republic

        More like a problem drinking.

        That’s what my kids say.

  • Crystalclear12

    We will obey . . well, mostly.

  • kath1y

    Congratulations! That should generate a f—load of clicks. NOW can you afford to get rid of the rotten avocado?

    Honestly, I’m avoiding your site because I know it’ll be the first thing I see.

    • onedollarjuana

      Subscribe, then you don’t see it.

    • Sister the Resister!

      Not everyone has the bucks to subscribe. But Adblock should get rid of it, right?

      I know $4.99 (or more) seems like chump change to a lot of people, but for those at or near poverty level, it’s a luxury, and there’s always something that $5 is critical for. Wonkette is wonderful, but if you’re scraping by, it’s not gonna be high on the financial priorities list.

      I’m doing Ad-Less right now myself, but before that I did a $2 donation each month, and didn’t really notice it (I timed it to come out of my account right after I put my paycheck in). That was when I was running Adblock, and I think it relieved my guilt for closing out the ads. But even if a buck or two isn’t feasable, I think Rebecca et al understand. And you can promote Wonkette by sharing articles on social media, too.

      The upshot being: do what you can, ignore the avocado when you can, and, much like AA, KEEP COMING BACK!!!

  • dslindc

    Good job, Wonkette!

    Regrettably, I am unable to pat your fanny now since I am at work and HR does not approve of such contact. Maybe later!

    • Resistinceisnotfutile

      Well have you established a pattern of said behavior? One incident would prolly not get you fired. Try it!

  • Gayer Than Thou

    …pat us on the fanny a million times…
    OK, you say that, but when I sexted you with my homemade spanking videos, you were all “eww!” and “please do not contact me again!” and “here is a restraining order.”

    • (((JustPixelz)))

      You too? Evan must have made that his auto-reply message.

  • Mr. Blobfish

    Well, duh.

  • Shanana Republic

    Yay! A safe place to eat my lunch today!

  • The Devastated Ms. MLG

    I liked Wonkette more before it was famous. Do you know they don’t even allow comments any longer?!

    • Gayer Than Thou

      I liked Wonkette before it became a total corporate sell-out.

      • Carpe Vagenda

        I would just take it off your iPod.

    • TJ Barke

      I was wonking before it was cool.

      • Gayer Than Thou

        Do you mean in high school? Pfft. Everyone was wanking then. Oh – “wonking.” Never mind.

        • TJ Barke

          Naw, I didn’t find it until at least 2 years after high school.

      • The Devastated Ms. MLG

        That’s hot…

      • Rise Up, Demme!

        me too.

    • President in Exile Firefly

      I was into Wonkette when they were playing dive bars and releasing EPs on vinyl.

    • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

      It’s good to see the humor slowly rise back up from the funk that was last week. Moar pleze!

    • Michael Smith

      I saw Wonkette live in the village in ’61, before they even recorded their first website.

  • peteywheats

    Rachel is the best news face!

    • Celtic_Gnome

      And she’s dog person.

      Sorry, cat people, but dogs will get you through these trying times better than cats. Cats won’t hold your hand and assure you everything’s going to be all right. Actually, dogs won’t do that either, because they don’t have opposable thumbs and can’t form words, but they will let you rub their bellies.

      • Sister the Resister!

        I don’t know, I think it depends on the kitty.

        Since about a week before the election, as my nerves got stretched tighter and tighter, my girl cat, who is usually kinda standoffish, started glomming on to me a bit more than usual. Since the night of the election, she’s insistent on being a lap cat, nuzzles me constantly, and in truth, is being kind of a pest. And her belly is THE BEST, all curly and soft.

        But I suspect it comes from her sensing my distress, and god love the little beast, she’s doing what she can. However, she has not figured out that laying on my arms prevents me from non-commenting, so we’re working on that one.

      • Meccalopolis

        Cats don’t knock you over with kiss attacks when you get home from work but they’re alright

  • Nasty Candy Apple

    Rachel Maddow would be my girlfriend, if I were gay and she wanted to be my girlfriend.

    • Oblios_Cap

      Rachel Maddow would be my girlfriend, if she wasn’t gay and she wanted to be mine.

      • alwayspunkindrublic

        Get in line, pal.

    • Lance Thrustwell

      No, she’d be my girlfriend! If I were female, gay, single, younger, cooler and she wanted to be my girlfriend. So there.

      • Nasty Candy Apple

        Today we are all Rachel’s girlfriend!

        • Sister the Resister!

          ‘specially Susan!

      • CogitoErgoBibo

        All of that for me, also too! But probably if I were taller.

        • MynameisBlarney

          Likewise.
          Also, too…if I only I had more hair.

        • Shanana Republic

          Rachel is very tall. My very-tall dad got to meet her and get a pic with her and everything and she’s nearly the same height.

          • Celtic_Gnome

            I also like that she wears jeans under the desk with her smart top and blazer. That’s as close as you can go to not wearing pants at work.

          • Vienna Woods

            Peter Kent used to do that on the CBC news in Canada back in the days when he was cool. Then he became a raging asshole Conservative Cabinet Minister. (pauses for a moment to thank the Goddess for Justin, from whom all blessings flow).

          • ColumbusLib

            The Justin Doxology- cool!

          • CogitoErgoBibo

            Lucky dad.

          • Shanana Republic

            Yeh. And dad’s wife. My cousin’s wife used to be a producer on her show so that’s how they got to meet her. I’M ALMOST FAMOUS!!

            I has a picture, too! Would it be really gauche to post it?

          • CogitoErgoBibo

            No, I would definitely post it. We luvs Rachel. All pictures welcome, particularly consorting with Wonketteers Adjacent.

          • foreign agitator Captain Kraut

            Or wonketteer dads. Or wonketteer dogs, cats, goats, neighbours, distant relatives, friends, friends of friends or people they may have heard of but never met.

          • Good_Gawd_Yall

            No, but if I ever meet you, I would appreciate a handshake, so I can brag that I shook the hand that shook the hand that married a woman who must surely have shaken Rachel’s hand a time or two.

          • Shanana Republic

            Hee! Giggling so hard right now…

    • OrG

      Rachel IS my girlfriend,she just doesn’t know it.

      • Lance Thrustwell

        Stalker style! Kickin’ it old school.

    • I wonder if she reads the comments…

      • Lulu Mac

        There are no comments…

      • Michael Smith

        As a person who started writing comments here because I realized this was basically the only site where comments are insightful, hysterical and relatively friendly, I would find it hard to believe that she doesn’t.

        Though maybe, unlike myself, she does what is apparently known as “work” while she is at her job.

        • Vienna Woods

          Every once in a while Mr VW asks why I read the comments.

    • Gayer Than Thou

      Rachel Maddow would be my girlfriend, if I were gay, which I am, but a woman, and she wanted to be my girlfriend.

    • IOnlyLikeCats

      Rachel Maddow could be my girlfriend if I knew her and she liked me, but I mean in a friend way.

      • kareemachan

        BFF’s forever!

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      Rachel Maddow would be my girlfriend if I hadn’t already promised myself to Joy Reid.

      • Sister the Resister!

        No way! I GET JOY REID!!! (well, if she wants, cuz freedom and choice and all that…. but she has the LOVELIEST SKIN and she’s smart and funny too.)

        • MynameisBlarney

          Fine!
          I got dibs on Ana Marie Cox* then!

          *if she wants to, freedom, etc.*

          • Resistinceisnotfutile

            Oh, okay.

        • alwayspunkindrublic

          No, I called her first. Mooommmmm!!

    • Daisy

      Based on the comments below, I guess we all want Rachel to be our girlfriend?

    • Resistinceisnotfutile

      So where is your farm? Or would you move to hers?

  • Wow, she referred to Wonkette as if it were a normal, everyday news site! (Well, it is for me, at least…)

  • chascates

    Little blog makes good!

  • NastyBossetti

    I’m going to put a plaque in the guest room that says, “Evan Hurst – hero Wonkette editor who wrote a paragraph that was read on-air on MSNBC in the Year of Endless Suffering 2016 by Rachel Maddow – slept here.”

    • Bill Slider

      Is Evan like George Washington? It would be easier to note where he has not slept.

      • NastyBossetti

        Yes, only not as tall.

        • Bill Slider

          I plead guilty to picking the low hanging fruit at the expense of Evan. But, it was so just right there, true or not, that I couldn’t resist.

  • TheGrandWaz00

    When I heard her say that last night I was anticipating the best dick joke ever.

  • Were you watching Rachel on election night? When they called Florida for Trump, she literally did this: “UUUUUGHGH”. She was offscreen but mic’d and it was obviously her voice. We were all Rachel Maddow in that moment.

    I already gave Foster Campbell all of my vodka moneys for the rest of the year, but I just gave him some more, and I will give him more every Friday up to December 9th! I actually live in Louisiana, so this is doubly important for me!!

    • Nasty Candy Apple

      Yep. We all had a Charlie Brown moment. :(

  • Crystalclear12

    So by extension we are the best?

    • kareemachan

      Like, duh!!

  • Relativicus

    Among allegedly progressive friends of mine — the sort who saw little light between Clinton and Trump, wanted to watch it all burn, and/or figured Trump was worth the gamble (even though they themselves totally didn’t want Trump to be president, totally) — I’ve begun seeing occasional kvetching against Maddow and her bias.

    • IOnlyLikeCats

      That’s weird. She stays to facts, explains herself, and is pretty clear that she has an opinion, as opposed to pretending she doesn’t and still allowing her opinion to color her coverage. Is it because she’s female?

      • Relativicus

        In at least one instance, my suspicion is “yes” (he was always way over the top in his criticism of Clinton, which I realize is a high standard, yet decidedly muted in any criticism of Trump). Otherwise, I suspect it’s part of a subtle Reddening of our entire culture that folks don’t even realize is happening, even while their attitudes shift bit by bit.

    • Iam Reading

      They may be your friends (you may need better friends), but I’m not entirely sure they know what progressive means. Or do they just have expensive, shitty car insurance.

  • Apple Scruff

    Does this mean I’m allowed to watch her again? I was trying to stay away from MSNBC.

    • Celtic_Gnome

      Rachel’s the only one I watch on MSNBC. She consistently held Trump’s feet to the fire, and the opening segments that start out with a history lessen that eventually comes around to a current event are always interesting.

      • Good_Gawd_Yall

        I watch Rachel and Lawrence, mainly because Lawrence always makes sure to have on at least one Republican guest who guffaws at the stupidity of a Mein Fubar presidency. It’s fun to watch his own side defenestrate him.

        • ColumbusLib

          Upfist for defenestrate!

  • Mavenmaven

    Wonkette will be indispensable for surviving these next four years.

          • Celtic_Gnome

            I had a friend who watched it on DVD recently for the first time. He understood early on that the only way to watch that movie is in a big, dark crowded auditorium stoned out of your gourd.

          • MynameisBlarney

            It was the presidential erection whut done it.

          • IOnlyLikeCats

            I’m not 21 and also I’m asthmatic. So I’d require a medical card and edibles. Maybe not.

            Robotussin then!

          • Nasty_ahughes798_woman

            I’ve read some research that says that marijahoochie may, in some cases, help people with asthma and COPD. But, best to stick with edibles when you get your card.

          • Zyxomma

            Some asthmatics get relief from pot. I can’t indulge now, because employers have to be able to drug test me whenever they want (for effin’ temp work; it’s ridiculous). I miss it.

    • Lance Thrustwell

      We all pick on Tweety, but at the end of the day, he is one of the good guys.

        No, he’s not. He’s got the privilege of not having to care and it shows.

    Can I have wonkette’s autograph?

  • idiokratischtrumpenjugend

    You do realize what this means, don’t you? There is a good chance that Rachel has read our comments, which are not allowed.

    • CogitoErgoBibo

      She may even have tried our recipes. Just let that sink in.

      • Shanana Republic

        OMG!!! You mean I had dinner with Rachel?!

        • CogitoErgoBibo

          I’m imagining it was amazing, with lots of wine and hawt poli sci double entendres. Well, MY imaginary dinner with her was like that, anyway.

          • Shanana Republic

            I’d be happy to just not choke on my salad.

          • kareemachan

            Or have a piece of spinach in my teeth.

          • BrianW

            I’m pretty sure Rachel would give you the Heimlich Maneuver. And, she would do it with grace and intelligence (which is still sexy as hell, btw).

          • Zyxomma

            Hell, I’ve done that. I once even did the infant version (check the airway manually, turn the kid upside down, hit between the shoulder blades). The offending object shot out onto the floor of the van, and the kid started breathing on his own. I was glad, I don’t like doing mouth to mouth resuscitation. Pro tip: When reviving an infant, cover both the mouth and nose with your mouth.

          • Nasty Candy Apple

            I just want her to mix me one of her drinks. Like that one where she drenched the sugar cube with Angostura Bitters and covered it with champagne.

          • Celtic_Gnome

            Bill Maher’s last show of the season always includes future headlines to keep up with current events while he’s off the air. The one that made me laugh out loud was, “Rachel Maddow’s show now just 60 minutes of drinking.”

        • going4baroque

          and probly told her to GFY, I’m guessing

    • MynameisBlarney

      Hi hon!!

    • Celtic_Gnome

      Hi, Rachel!

  • Daisy

    Yay!

  • The Rachel Maddow Show doesn’t allow comments, either.

  • Jennifer R

    When McCrory says they are challenging ballots in 50 counties this means that they found people they think will not be able to get time off work to defend their votes. This fucker might steal the election yet.

    • CogitoErgoBibo

      Not really. It means that officials have to research things that can pretty much be proven in the record. Was this person registered? Do they live at the address reported? Could even mean that there were “reports” that certain machines were malfunctioning in a given county. In fact, that last one is the more usual type of challenge. Basically that the votes counted aren’t the votes actually cast. They don’t call up individual voters and haul them in to defend their ballots.

  • beingreleased

    Anyone want to take a guess which one of us is Rachel? Or would that be doxing, which is bad?

      Doxing, bad. She’ll tell us if she feels like it.

      The bellwether of truth and dick jokes. Top that, Hannity!

      • Daisy

        I defer to Jon Stewart, and therefore must insist Hannity only be referred to as “Lumpy” in the comments, which are not allowed.

        • kareemachan

          I just call him “He who is too chickenshit to be waterboarded for charity” or HWITCTBWFC.

        • Marceline

          I’ve been trying to figure out how I’m going to refer to Donald in the future. I’m not calling him president and I don’t like to use his last name because he likes it so much. Your Stewart reference made me remember “Fuckface von Clownstick.” Yeah. I think I’ll stick with that.

            > I’m not calling him president and I don’t like to use his last name because he likes it so much.

            Right, which is why everyone’s been calling him

    You guys are so smart! Thanks for the reminder. Just gave.

Except me, whom I didn’t have to spend money on because someone else gave me money. I’m looking right at you Campbell – you better do this!

      Me too, but as a red state resident, I like to contribute to Dem congressional committees so I can say I helped elect Al and Tammy and Liz and the rest. I don’t have much time for volunteering so it’s what I can do. I don’t regret a penny.

      I have never understood why comments aren’t allowed here.

    This is amazing and well deserved. Rachel is a hero of mine: an intelligent, compassionate woman who is so often the voice of reason with respect to the objective lunacy that pervades US politics.

    P.S. As a non U.S. citizen (NZer here, hi), I’ve been lurking on this site for a while, and am a proud monthly supporter. Thank you to you and your regular commenters for providing excellent insight into gun culture, politics and the plight of minorities. I’ve loved Pres Obama from afar and would have been so excited to vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton if she’d been one of ours (as I did our best ever PM the Rt. Honourable Helen Clark, a kick ass, left wing, inspiringly intellectual woman who is now working for the UN). I will continue to wear my Hillary t-shirt with pride.

          I’m a she, but a) same sex marriage is legal here and b) if that doesn’t float your boat, I have about 100 first cousins. Grandparents were irish catholic and very, very prolific (I have 23 aunts/uncles from my mother and father’s sides combined). Don’t worry, no one will expect you to remember everyone’s name.

      • DM

        Man I tell you, I’ve never felt so loved. I’ve had a dozen marriage proposals from my US friends over the last fortnight. Since polygamy isn’t legal here, I’ve been thinking of an old-school free-love commune which you’d be welcome to join! It’ll be good practice for the post-trumpocalypse deterioration of society. I’m a city girl (no sheep experience, er-so to speak) but my partner is a botanist so he can grow vegetables. My other friends are teachers, home-makers, writers, accountants and bankers, so they all have utilisable skills (we’ll get the bankers to deal with the sheep). I’m a doctor so I can manage the medical stuff. FREE HEALTHCARE, C’MON. You know you want to join us!

        Oh I’m glad she had a good time! We have our own share of assholes unfortunately, and “we” voted the blandest, conservative, white male dominated party to power two times in a row now. But yay for respecting native title/rights, free healthcare, being the first country in the world where women’s suffrage was successful, and legalised same sex marriage. Oh, and for Flight of the Conchords. Proud of them too.

    • Nasty_ahughes798_woman

      How big do the spiders get in NZ?

      • DM

        Oh they can get big! We have a species of Huntsman spider (the really big ones from Australia) called the Avondale spider that can grow to about 8 inches span, and a type cave spider from Nelson that has a 3in wide body and 5in legs. I like spiders though. I lived in Sydney for 8 years and I never disturbed a huntsman if I saw one in my house. They get rid of the nasty flies and mozzies!

        • Nasty_ahughes798_woman

          I heard the White Tails were the ones that you didn’t want in your house, not that most people would want any spider that big in their house. I have a friend who lives in Melbourne, so she kindly sends me many, many pictures of the Huntsmen in her house. I’m not scared of small spiders, and I have some in my house right now taking care of business, but once the size of the body exceeds the size of a pea, I start to get real nervous, and any larger than that, I lose my metaphorical shit entirely.

          • DM

            Your friend trolling you with spider pics is truly in the spirit of Australian piss-taking. Enjoy!

            I know, damn her!

        • Zyxomma

          I love spiders, too, and always leave their webs undisturbed. I visited Oz in 1987, and was on my way to the Great Barrier Reef when Supernova 1987a was discovered simultaneously in NZ and Chile. I’d planned on hiking down the west coast of NZ (my ticket was good for NZ and Fiji), but spent all my money diving the GBR so I still haven’t visited NZ.

        What if Rachel were one of us?
        Just a schlub like one of us?

    • CogitoErgoBibo

      Various answers downthread, but it amounts to, “If she’s here, she’ll tell us when she’s good and ready.” Or, “Asking is sort of like doxxing, right? Doxxing is bad.” And “We are all Rachel/Spartacus.” Also too. There. Saved you a trip.

    • Sister the Resister!

      Though I (a) wish like hell that she comments here, and (b) would love to know who she is if so, I still think that (c) she’s better off keeping it on the down low because you just KNOW that off camera she can let loose, and (d) wouldn’t get the respect she does if people found out, because reasons.

      So, I’m going to assume she occasionally comments, and that she won’t tell us till she retires, and HEY RACHEL!!! *waves* HAVE FUN PLAYING WITH ALL OF US HERE!!! WE LURVES YOU!!!!!

    So I knows that Rachel must be a commenting here, too. She surely wants to get in on the world class snarkfestarino that goes on. Question is, which one of you vagendas is her? (Are her?) I’m pretty sure it isn’t me because I am a poor and she has a much better haircut than I do….

    • sgt. jmk of the résistance

      I’m pretty sure that she’s not me – my hair is red.

    • Lance Thrustwell

      It’s so simple! All you have to do is divine from what you know of us: is any one of us the sort of commenter who would admit to being Rachel, or pretend not to be her? Now, a clever commenter would say they were Rachel, because he or she would know that only a great fool would say they were not her. I, for instance, am not a great fool, so I can clearly not say I am not Rachel. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so…

    Nice shout out to Wonkette. I’ll just mosey on over to Mr. Campbell’s website now…..

  • Shanana Republic

    Okay, since I’m super excited that Rachel mentioned Wonkette AGAIN and I’m also super excited that my dad and his wife got to meet her AND get a photo with her, I’m just gonna be a total dork and post it:

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0a6b8070fbd29d1e86dddc37b7d152dbfe44c9cd12d4406fa5cf3bb8e1373af0.jpg

    The reason they gave my dad a badge and let him wander around the building is because my cousin’s wife used to be a producer on Rachel’s show so she must have vouched for him. Otherwise, why would Rachel let a big ginger doofus like that stand so close?

    • CogitoErgoBibo

      Awww. That’s so sweet of her. And your dad must be really tall. Do we like your dad’s wife? I hope so. I’m vertically-challenged myself, but I won’t like her unless you say we can.

      • Shanana Republic

        YES! We love my step-mom to bitty little pieces, yes we do! She is sharp and lovely and snarky and I have no idea why she’s put up with my dad for 30+ years.

        • CogitoErgoBibo

          LOL Good. I’m glad they both got a chance to meet the lovely, refined, sexy, sparkly Rachel.

    • Lance Thrustwell

      Yay! They look nice, yr dad & stepmom.

      • Shanana Republic

        They are! I’m very lucky. Except in that the genes on my dad’s side of the family tend to be VERY aggresive against any sort of interlopers.

        “HAHAHA! And you thought you were going to enlarge the gene pool!”

    • Skeptical_thinker

      I must ask when and where you drugged me and brought me to Rachel’s place of work. Ms. Thinker is now suspicious that I have been seeing Rachel when she is home in MA.

      Your father and I could be twins, right down to the pot belly and glasses stuffed into the shirt. I am not a ginger, but close enough. Hair style (such as it is), beard, mustache. Crap! even the shirt and jacket.

      I’m going to steal this picture and crop it down to your dad and Rachel and claim it was me.

      • Shanana Republic

        Hee! Well, if you have the same twinkly turquoise eyes you must be quite the charmer so I can see why Ms. Thinker would be concerned!

        • Skeptical_thinker

          If by turquoise you mean hazel (shifts between green and blue) I got ’em. Ms Thinker was attracted to me because of the twinkle. I’m a bit greyer in the beard, but Ms Thinker had to look twice.

          I am going to send this picture to my kids and tell them that I met Rachel:-)

          • Zyxomma

            Not to be all pedantic (yes, I am), but hazel is not any variation of blue or green. It is pale brown (like a hazelnut shell) or amber.

    • Zyxomma

      Awwww.

  • Cheesus Crust _ Rebel

    Rachel – we love you and my g/f has a massive crush on you and, I’m actually not sure how I feel about that but – you’re still awesome!

    Here’s a story:
    “My sites were picked up by Trump supporters all the time. I think Trump is in the White House because of me. His followers don’t fact-check anything — they’ll post everything, believe anything. His campaign manager posted my story about a protester getting paid $3,500 as fact. Like, I made that up.”

    Evan, I’m not patting your fanny, coz I’m British, and you don’t possess a lady garden… happy to pat your arse tho!

    pat pat pat pat pat pat pat
    (That. . . .wasn’t also an invitation to GTBTP, was it? Nah, I didn’t think so.)
    I can’t think what accolade you might treasure quite so much as Rachel calling Wonkette the best website in the world.
    And I gave money to Campbell! And I wrote to my two Senators about Sessions and Pompeo (but mostly Sessions)! Who’s a good boy? I’m a good boy!

    • yyyaz

      Yeah, but you still bark at the mailman.

    Meanwhile, weasels are trying to burrow in: WASHINGTON — Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President-elect Donald J. Trump, has spoken to a lawyer about the possibility of joining the new administration, a move that could violate federal anti-nepotism law and risk legal challenges and political backlash. (NYT)

    • Resistinceisnotfutile

      I’m SHOCKED! SHOCKED I tell you. Drumpf wants to install a budding dynasty? He would NEVER!

      • Pierre_de_Fermat

        Well, I don’t think he has any advisors he really trusts outside his family. I suspect he is aware what’s left of the GOP “establishment” (cough ryan cough) would happily replace him with Pence. And will if they can figure out how.

    • Vagenda and Tiara

      Jared Kushner’s father is a sleazy crook, Jared Kushner married the daughter of a sleazy crook, so I’m going to guess Jared Kushner is probably a sleazy little crook.

    I learned about Wonkette from Rachel’s wonderfully flirty interview with Anna Marie Cox.

    • La Resistance O’hontas

      Nasty women unite!

    • DoILookAmused2u ?

      There’s a dick joke in there somewhere.

  • Sedagive

    Hey Rachel – been a fan since Air America!

    Wonkett is an island of clear-eyed snark in a periapocolyptic world.

    Long may she reign.

  • YorkshireTeaDrinker

    I really wish I could give a donation to this fella but I can’t as I live in England,
    if I could I would give him money just because all your craziness going on over there effects us over here. All our craziness is more just bemusing to you guys – Fuck Brexit in the arse hole! (Why couldn’t we all just of stayed away from the ‘member berries.)

    Also being British I found the imagery of given a million pats on a
    fanny probably one of the most (accidentally) funniest I have read on
    wonkette – a fanny is a vagina. So which would be worse giving a million pats on the pussy or just grabbing it?

    • ltmcdies

      all I can do from Canuckistan is pat fanny which means the same in Murican as it does in Canuck…

    • kev

      well over here, your ‘fanny’ is just what everyone sits on. neither a male nor a female connotation.

  • God Bless You, Ms. Maddow!

    You ought to be President of the United States!

    • Lance Thrustwell

      Yes!

    • Jena-Auerstedt

      Hey now, that would be something! Not only the first woman president, but a lesbian to boot! A lot of Republicans would die instantly of heart attacks — or at least swoon with the vapors.

    Good interview. I’m impressed by this Democratic senate candidate.

    RACHEL HI!!! I LOVELOVELOVELOVE YOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • bbayliss

    Me in front of my TV…”Get to the point.Rachel. RACHEL, Please, get to the point… Goddamnit,Rachel, get to the fucking point…I’m not an idiot, just get to…the…point.”

    Think I’ll go get a cup of coffee, maybe when i get back she’ll be closing in on the point.

    “Hey, good point, Rachel.”

    • Shanana Republic

      I kind of like the geek-depth she goes into. Also, fun to watch.

      • bbayliss

        My attention span and patience have been reduced to less than that of Buddy, my gold fish.

          • bbayliss

            Why not just stab me in the heart after cutting off my balls and slitting my neck and then set me on fire on top of an ant hill in the middle of quicksand

            Fire ants on fire?
            Gotta draw the line somewhere.

          • Nasty_ahughes798_woman

            The only fun to be had where my parents lived in FL. was going back into the easement was stirring up fire ant nests and running like hell.

          • Vorhees

            I think the quicksand is going too far!

          • bbayliss

            You don’t know what lies beneath the quicksand.

        • Nasty_ahughes798_woman

          It’s like this: Every newscaster in the ‘Murica, since the late ’70’s, has been talking to us all like we’re 7. Every single one of them, including Ms. Maddow. They have not quite caught up on the idea that 1)Facts are Facts 2) Facts don’t have “sides.” 3) Yes, a lot of the people out there are, in fact, intelligent, and don’t need every damn little thing explained to us over and over and over and over again to understand what is being said. We heard it the first time. Got it.

          But it seems, in the intervening years, news has become a profit center, and not the network’s loss leader, like it used to be.

          Which is why NBC’s News Overnight was the best news show on TV, ever.

      • I watch specifically for that depth. I like a little history lesson with my news.

      • Courser

        Same here. In fact I think it’s what drew me to her in the first place. Her opening piece is always really interesting history of the main thing she’s talking about. I mean, I’m not always into it and will sometimes ff through , but most of the time she’s engaging enough that it holds my attention.

  • Vagenda and Tiara

    Has Rachel even met Donna Rose? She’d be plugging Wonkette every night if she did.

  • nastymagyar

    One day I will unmask her ‘nym here. We all know she is one of us

    • Vagenda and Tiara

      I told you not to tell anyone it was me!

      • nastymagyar

        shhh, your secret’s still good

        • Vagenda and Tiara

          OK, but just don’t tell anyone! You PROMISED.

    • Jukesgrrl

      If she is here she will have a name that has something to do with cocktails.

    • La Resistance O’hontas

      ONE OF US! ONE OF US!…

    • Resistinceisnotfutile

      One order of truth serum, plz.

    • Resistinceisnotfutile

      What if it’s actually Susan that’s on here?

      • nastymagyar

        Good question. Which Wonkets have admitted they are artists? Or act “Artsy”?

        • Resistinceisnotfutile

          Have to think about that one. It’s hard though because you can’t tell half the time what gender a Wonket claims.

  • Sisi Ville

    Finally my love of Maddow and Wonkette have intersected. It’s nice that trump made this happen. Now back to giving that dumpster fire hell.

  • SCK

    YAY YOU!

  • A Bashful Nobody

    Yay us!!!

  • Jeff Mc Donald

    Commie girl went and married someone else, I’m not Rachel’s type…(heavy sigh)…well, no super smart trophy wife for me!

  • MilwaukeeKent

    So cool, that Rachel Maddow shoutout…and I just donated to Campbell. I feel a little less nauseous.

  • UnsaltedSinner
    • M.E. Lawrence

      I love that scene. Is that what’s going to happen to the Strumpet, preferably in the next day or so?

  • Jukesgrrl

    I get mad at Rachel because she puts up with Lyin’ Brian Williams who probably gave her cooties … Also, too she doesn’t tell Tweety to STFU because he’s a moran, etc. But just when I think I’m out she pulls me back in. I’m the Michael Corleone of MSNBC viewers.

    • Grumpy Old Man

      Uh, Brian gave Rachel cooties? I think you might want to do some research – yeow.

    • M.E. Lawrence

      Rachel is never rude to people, because she is a perfect lady, but she also speaks truth to power. How she manages to blend these two qualities I do not know, but I revere her for it.

  • Rachel Book Harlot

    Congratulations! I agree wholeheartedly with Ms. Maddow: Wonkette is the best website in the world. I heart youse guyz. Also, I just realized I’ve been pronouncing the site’s name wrong. I pronounce it won-ket, not wonk-ette. Ah well, you guys will always be won-ket to me.

    • Nasty_ahughes798_woman

      You say wonketo,
      I say wonk-etto.
      You say tomato
      I say tometto.
      Wonketo, Wonketto,
      Tomato, Tometto
      Let’s call the whole thing off!

      • Rachel Book Harlot

        This was awesome. :)

        • Nasty_ahughes798_woman

          Thank you!

  • Ricky Gay

    this rulz!

  • ColumbusLib

    I just donated to Campbell, and shared this on Facebook. Sounds like the Senate is our only possible leverage- gotta go for it!

  • Foreign Agitator Ron

    Normally I am reluctant to pat guys on the fanny for fear of it being misinterpreted, but for Evan I’ll do it!

  • Robin

    I’m so proud of the wonket! I think MSNBC should start bringing you guys (and girls, and idks) onto the panel shows.

    • Wee Mousie

      I think your “kids” are dyslexic.

      • Bad Tom

        I thought they were “I Don’t Knows”, as in, “Not Sure If Guy Or Girl.”
        ——-
        Which is, of course, totally cool.

        • Wee Mousie

          Well, “Not Sure If Guy Or Girl” would be “(I) (D)on’t (K)now (W)hich (S)ex which is, as you say, is totally cool.

          However, “idks” would be (I) (D)on’t (K)now (S)ex, which would be totally tragic.

  • pixeloid

    “were President Trump to seek congressional authorization to nuke Sweden”

    Silly Wonkette! tRump doesn’t need authorization to nuke anyone. Declare war, yes. Launch nukes, no. We will all be dead soon.

  • Saxo the Grammarian

    Only fanny pats? No groping?

  • “Fanny” doesn’t mean that body part in Australia. Sounds like something Trump would do if you get my meaning.

    Jesus Christ, we have to put our slim, battered hope for a functioning Democracy in fucking Louisiana? Rachel, feel free to share that..(love you).

    • Nola Saint

      We’ve been known to go both ways down in Louisiana…Democrat & Republican. We replaced Jindal with what seems to be a pretty decent democrat fella for Gov’nor. Scare up some voodoo and whatnot (money donations to the campaign) that we elect another.

      • Grendel

        There’s not just two ways… there’s also diaper fetishists, etc

    I saw this Thursday night. And I agree with her assessment. I want my Rachel Maddow t-shirt from yr Wonkette, please. Will buy for myself, family, friends and allied strangers.

  • MaggieMalone

    That’s how I found Wonkette — and now I’m hooked! I’ve shared it and am now an obsessive follower. Thanks for keeping it real! (and thanks to Rachel Maddow, she’s the best!)

    I may even try to watch Rachel again. And I have given Campbell some Ameros to help the cause.
