Trusted Internet political bastion Right Wing News held its 6th annual Conservative Blog awards, and your Wonkette is a winner! Well, at least we placed.

“Web pundits like Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos and Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo score high likability ratings with certain population segments, but their awareness numbers, which are more important than appeal, E-Poll notes, are barely on the radar screen. The same is largely true of elite newspaper columnists like Thomas Friedman, Maureen Dowd, Robert Novak, E.J. Dionne and Holman Jenkins.” [Forbes] Read more on …

NRA Comic Is Heinous Hoax & Then Magically Real Again

While we were enjoying whatever people enjoy over the long War On Christmas weekend, that secret NRA graphic novel we discovered was causing all sorts of ruckus. A bunch of dull morons over at the Daily Kos spent a lonesome day “proving” how we magically created all this beautifully frightening artwork because “Wonkette: Liar” (seriously, that was their headline). Smarter people over at a California concealed-weapon-permit site had more interesting things to say, but concluded the NRA comic was a hoax not by Wonkette but by a literary website we’ve never heard of — that theory lasted long enough to make it to Boing Boing, while CBS News producers desperately sought comment from Wonkette editors … in the comments. More crap, after the jump. Read more on NRA Comic Is Heinous Hoax & Then Magically Real Again…

One more of these stories and it becomes a “pattern.” In Ohio, Republican Ken Blackwell (cue 10,000 left-wing bloggers e-mailing me stolen election theories) is running a (at the moment) losing campaign for governor against Democrat Ted Strickland. The Democrat is an ordained minister, and married, but he has no kids. You can guess the next part – a Blackwell consultant e-mailed Republicans and claimed Strickland was a big ol’ queerboy.

Americans will not vote for a lesbian President and they’re not too fond of weirdos either.” We’ll let you guess who “she” is. (Hint: NOT Hillary.)
