Problem!: Not EVERYONE In Congress Can Go On Class Trip To Denmark

So many important environmental goings-on are happening, in Denmark! Naturally, everyone in Congress is suddenly interested in climate change legislation now that a field trip to Europe is involved. (This is the entire raison d’etre behind Latin Club, in high school.) Watch now as legislators bitterly and publicly argue about who gets to go with Nancy Pelosi to Copenhagen. (This is the entire raison d’etre behind the Young Democrats, in high school.) Read more on Problem!: Not EVERYONE In Congress Can Go On Class Trip To Denmark…

Wonkette Went To Virginia For A Town Hall, And Randall Terry Went Nuts, The End

See, there he is! Randall Terry, who is somewhere between 37 and 124 years old, brought his Anti-Babykilling World Tour to the peaceful Virginia money cave of Reston yesterday evening to disrupt Rep. Jim Moran’s health care town hall, also featuring Doctor Howard Dean of Ver-mont. He succeeded for about 5 minutes, but then the cops kicked him out, and Howard Dean continued to slaughter babies, live, before the crowd of 2,500. Mostly, though, it was an informative (=boring) event, despite the 20-odd jackasses who couldn’t stop shouting monosyllabic vagaries whenever they didn’t like something.

Wonkette Tortures Self, Returns To Philadelphia

Last week, your Wonkette traveled to Philadelphia for a debate and it was the worst experience of all time. So we’re getting the band back together and doing it again! Only this time, they’re voting, and they’ll probably all look stupid because who doesn’t. Also, we’ll have Famous star “Polaroid” Liz Glover on board to harass the poor citizenry of America’s Ben Franklin City. We will leave shortly, and then get stuck on I-95 for 12 hours, and then hopefully post things tonight and tomorrow from “on the ground.” Read more on Wonkette Tortures Self, Returns To Philadelphia…
 

Wonkette’s Week in Review: Not Made of Sugar

* The Supreme Court bench-slapped the White House in the Gitmo military tribunal case. Tony Snow is unfazed: “Oh, those wacky Supreme Court justices, who knows what those guys mean!” * Katherine Harris: just as crazy as last week. Read more on Wonkette’s Week in Review: Not Made of Sugar…
 

Take Her Out to the Ball Game

Katherine Harris’s enthusiasm for taking pictures with her camera phone, as seen in this photo, is nothing new. Last night, Team Wonkette attended the 45th Annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game. And so did our favorite congresswoman: Rep. Katherine Harris (R-FL). We’ll have a more detailed write-up of the game, along with additional pictures, later today. For now, to whet your appetite, we offer you a few photos of Katy H. at the game. Check them out, after the jump (or just click here). Read more on Take Her Out to the Ball Game…
 

Wonkette Field Trip: A Pilgrimage to the Supremes (Part Two)

The TV people were faked out by the Court today too. And unlike us, they brought all this crap with them. Earlier today, we brought you the first installment of pictures from our field trip to the Supreme Court this morning. We thought it would be the final day of the Term. We thought wrong. Now, the rest of our photo essay. Check out the pics, after the jump. Read more on Wonkette Field Trip: A Pilgrimage to the Supremes (Part Two)…
 

Wonkette Field Trip: A Pilgrimage to the Supremes (Part One)

Today Wonkette took a field trip to the U.S. Supreme Court. We were all excited, ’cause we — like many others — thought it might be the last day of the Term. The Court would hand down decisions in all its big-ticket cases — like the Texas redistricting case, and the Guantanamo Bay detainee case. Maybe a justice would announce his or her retirement. We might be present for the making of history. As it turned out, the SCOTUS faked us out. Moving into overtime, they announced that tomorrow will be the last day of the Term. Perhaps their recent night at the movies caused the justices to fall behind in their work. Nevertheless, our visit to the Court was worthwhile. Even though the decision in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld will have to wait until tomorrow, we did get to watch Justice Kennedy try to explain the confusing raft of opinions in the Texas redistricting case. And we swooned when the hunky Chief Justice started talkin’ dirty to us, about Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on “Consular Relations”… After the jump, part one of our two-part photo essay on our day with the Supremes. Update: Part Two is available here. Read more on Wonkette Field Trip: A Pilgrimage to the Supremes (Part One)…
