Gun Nuts Just Want Mom’s Address To Say Howdy, Probably

More evidence that open carry is in the Napoleon-in-Russia phase of its campaign for gun rights most people never asked for and don’t want: a now-deleted tweet from prominent Texas open carry nut and alleged airline pilot Eric Reed: How’s that month-old frozen horse meat tasting today, Eric? (Astute readers may recognize one Robert J. “Raging Rob” Kinnison in the reply. He’s the guy who likes to tell people to put dicks in their mouths and shut up.)

‘Muslim-Free’ Gun Range Lady Bans South Asian Dudes, Is Definitely Not Racist

She seems as nice as ever.
Surely nobody could have seen this coming! You remember Jan Morgan, that nice lady who declared her Hot Springs, Arkansas, gun range a Muslim-Free Zone, because of all the violence and beheadings that the Muslims are always up to — not to mention the unnerving Muslim ringtones on their phones? It turns out that she’s still quite happily running a Muslim-free establishment, and everything’s just great! Oh, and she has a great method for deciding who’s a Muslim and who isn’t: good old racial profiling. Read more on ‘Muslim-Free’ Gun Range Lady Bans South Asian Dudes, Is Definitely Not Racist…

Deleted Comments: Alas, We Have Offended A Sensitive Soul (Or Men’s Rights Activist, Same Difference)

To The Management: Please correct this image. I would never use Courier. On second thought, never mind. You'd just replace it with Comic Sans.
Your Wonkette isn’t perfect, lord only knows, and when we err, we seek to make amends. Which brings us to this very important message from our comments queue, from “jrayhawk” (please, no Ray Jay Johnson jokes), who felt that we treated the subject of a recent story quite shabbily. Friday, we ran a story about several important developments in gender relations, including the sad tale of Scott Aaronson, a professor at MIT who has pretty much had it with how feminists have criminalized every last aspect of male sexuality. Jrayhawk felt that we failed to give Aaronson an even break because we sided with the mean women instead of with their victim: Read more on Deleted Comments: Alas, We Have Offended A Sensitive Soul (Or Men’s Rights Activist, Same Difference)…

Wonkette Week in Review: Holiday Content That’s Still Under Warranty

After unpacking, you'll be finding foam peanuts for months

Wonkette Week In Review: Yule Want To See The Week’s Best Stories

A young gentile Al Franken reads a book to kids
Happy Festivus weekend, Wonkers! Hope you’re ready for the Airing of Grievances! Our greatest grievance is, of course, that we can only bring Wonkette to you a mere 7 days a week, and worse, on some of those days, you may still miss some of our Wonkings because of things like a “job,” a “family,” or a “life.” Happily, the weekend is a great time to catch up on some of our best stuff, and so we bring you this feature, in which we count down the ten best stories of the week — or at least most-shared on the Facebooks, which is pretty much the same thing. Don’t see your favorite story here? Maybe your tastes are not in line with those of your peers. Have you considered conformity? Oh, or you could make a point of clicking “share” a bunch more! That may be an even better way to express your individuality, you exceptional American, you. Read more on Wonkette Week In Review: Yule Want To See The Week’s Best Stories…

Jeb Bush May Bless Us With Presidential Run

He's just so dreamy
In a Christmas present for America, former Florida Gov. Jeb “The Smart One. No Really” Bush announced Tuesday that he will “actively explore the possibility” of a presidential run, because his country needs him a whole lot. Taking to the traditional platform for such announcements, Twitter and Facebook — late-night talk shows are so over — the passionate nonentity said that the topic just sort of naturally came up at the Thanksgiving dinner table, as is the norm in American families: Read more on Jeb Bush May Bless Us With Presidential Run…

Wonkette Week In Review: How On Earth Did You Miss These Stories?

Oh, there's good stuff in here.
We understand. We know how it is. You’re out there every day, holding together the shaky scaffolding of reality, keeping the world as we know it from disintegrating into chaos, doing your part against entropy. Or at least keeping that jackhole from Accounts Receivable from getting the last cruller. In the midst of all that, you may not have time to check Wonkette every moment of the day, and so there may be stories that you missed. Thankfully, that’s what a Saturday is for. To put up your feet, look back over the detritus of the week, and see what dick jokes there were to be had. And so, we present to you these ten stories, chosen by The Masses with the wisdom of crowds, or at least the whims of clicking “share” on Facebook. Don’t see one of your favorites here? We don’t have to answer to people who don’t share, buster. Read more on Wonkette Week In Review: How On Earth Did You Miss These Stories?…
  Only To Find Gideon's Bible

Nice Georgia Elementary School Giving All Its Children The Gift Of Jesus, Hooray!

Wrong Rocky Raccoon. (I take a 7 1/2)
A Georgia elementary school is doing something innovative for its students — no, silly, it’s not trying innovative methods for teaching math or getting kids excited about science. Instead, it’s inviting the Gideons into the school library and having kids line up to get their very own Bibles, which are apparently in such short supply in Georgia that volunteers are needed to hand them out in public schools. But hey, at least they’re promoting literacy by taking the kids to the library, maybe. Read more on Nice Georgia Elementary School Giving All Its Children The Gift Of Jesus, Hooray!…

Wonkette Week In Review: What You Missed While You Were Digesting

Siblings torment their youngest sister by stuffing her inside a raw turkey, 1937
Time for another weekly Top Ten, and since we missed a weekend doing that food-based holiday and getting Yr Editrix hitched, it’s actually more of a bit-more than a week that we’ll cover. And yipes, what a week and change it was. Just in case you missed some of these while you were traveling or celebrating or just trying to obliterate the pain, here are our top ten recent stories, as determined by the number of times they were shared on the Facebook, which is of course how all determinations of excellence are made today.

  And Yet The Wu Tang Klan Continues To Get A Free Pass

Non-Racist Texas School Board Member Posted SO MUCH KKK Stuff Online

This never ends well
We suppose this counts as good news, at least in the end. Chris Harris, a member of the Hooks Independent School Board in Texas, has resigned after posting multiple racist images and messages to Facebook last week. He later explained that he wasn’t racist at all; he just got a little worked up in a Facebook discussion of the grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, which is a perfectly reasonable explanation for why Harris posted this image in the discussion thread: Read more on Non-Racist Texas School Board Member Posted SO MUCH KKK Stuff Online…

Thing Atop Donald Trump’s Head Wants To Be President Of Facebook

Is there anything new to say about this asshole?
On the same day that Ohio Sen. Rob Portman dashed the dreams of tens of Americans with an announcement that he would not run for president, The Daily Beast tantalized us with the astonishing prospect that Donald Trump believes Donald Trump may just need to give serious consideration to running for the office of President of The Trump States of America.

Sarah Palin Made A Funny About Ferguson

Oh, we get it!
After having said pretty much nothing about the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, occasional reality television show front-woman Sarah Palin finally shared her thoughts with America over the weekend by reposting to her MyFacePlace page a joke from rightwing conspiracy website Mad World News.

Anti-Government Loon Shot Up Austin, Has Nothing To Do With Other Anti-Government Loons

Tea Partier, or Renaissance Fair anachronism?
Here’s something you may have missed if you spent the weekend driving to Missoula and back so you could read some Kurt Vonnegut lovey-dovey stuff at your boss’s wedding. An antigovernment gun nut drove around downtown Austin, Texas, in the wee hours of Friday morning, firing over 100 rounds at police headquarters, a bank, and the federal courthouse. He also tried to burn down the Mexican consulate. Read more on Anti-Government Loon Shot Up Austin, Has Nothing To Do With Other Anti-Government Loons…

Klassy GOP Lady Real Sorry For Calling Obama Daughters Skanks

You’ve probably heard by now about the bravest American in America, who bravely shamed first daughters Malia and Sasha Obama for disgracing themselves and America and mom and apple pie by being teenagers, standing around like a couple of teenagers, making bored teenage faces at their dad’s lame dad jokes, like a couple of teenagers. Can you impeach the president’s daughters? Or at least sue them or something? They’re repeat offenders, even. Read more on Klassy GOP Lady Real Sorry For Calling Obama Daughters Skanks…

Ted Nugent All Racist About Ferguson, Nation Back To Normal

Still very much on the NRA board
Guys, we are trying so hard not to be All Ferguson All the Time, but then, dammit, along comes Ted Nugent and posts this idiocy to his Faceplace: Here’s the lessons from Ferguson America- Don’t let your kids growup to be thugs who think they can steal, assault & attack cops as a way of life & badge of black (dis)honor. Don’t preach your racist bullshit “no justice no peace” as blabbered by Obama’s racist Czar Al Not So Sharpton & their black klansmen. Say, did we mention that this man is on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association, and they wouldn’t dream of asking him to leave? The strongest thing the organization has ever said about the guy is “Ted is seen as Ted more than as an NRA board member.” Hey, he’s a rock star, he says wacky things is all.

Let’s Pretend This Caption Contest Winner Is The Only Announcement Everyone’s Waiting On

Winner, winner, chicken dinner! (for breakfast?)
We had a little caption contest last week, and we went and prepped the winners to run this afternoon, but it almost seems like you’re all… distracted, for some reason. Can’t imagine why! But since we have it, we will run it, because for godssake we could use something other than Impending Ferguson Doom this afternoon, we hope.
