Riley Is Not Dead (Yet): Very Brief Update From Occupied Libertyville Park

Wonkette special correspondent Riley Waggaman is like the child you threw out and then, years later, kind of felt bad about. What ever happened to him? Well, after a triumphant week or two of posting dispatches from the Occupy Wall Street campout, Riley had to hitchhike back to New Hampshire for some other kind of “personal liberty,” but now he’s back at Zuccotti. Here is the entirety of his email today: Read more on Riley Is Not Dead (Yet): Very Brief Update From Occupied Libertyville Park…

Michael Moore and the Granny Peace Squad Occupy Wall Street

Hello friends! Your Occupy Wall Street correspondent spent the day familiarizing himself with the park-dwelling lifestyle (pro tip: poop at McDonald’s, not in your pants) and meeting the treacherous peaceniks that he will be spending an entire week with. Did you know that these “disorganized, godless pixies” are actually extremely intelligent and highly organized, and that they have a kitchen that serves three meals a day and a medical station that offers free medical assistance and a library with free book-learnin’? (A place where you can borrow books for reading, but no Netflix overnight shipping depot? Ha ha, just another example of “pantomime progressivism”!) Anyway, nobody got arrested today (as of 8:30pm), but there were lots of hot celebrities such as Michael Moore. And the Granny Peace Squad came and helped ruin America with us. You probably already know about the Granny Peace Squad, but are you familiar with Michael Moore? He is an old woman who wears a trashbag and talks smack about the 5-0. Videos after the jump!

Inside the GOP Florida Debate’s Swag Bag

Wonkette operative Lauren Selsky just picked up her GOP debate gift bag in Boca Raton. What do you get for going to a Republican debate these days? Let’s find out! When I picked up my media credentials from FAU/Leadership Florida this afternoon, they also handed out this nice “swag bag.” I doubt it compares to the Oscars, but at least I won’t be taxed for it. Here’s what’s inside the nifty little canvas bag with “Florida Decision 2008″ printed on the front: Read more on Inside the GOP Florida Debate’s Swag Bag…
 

Florida Report: Deface Cars For Ron Paul!

BOCA RATON — This whole GOP debate is the most exciting thing to happen here since Joe Pesci punched that kid outside the Jamba Juice. Ron Paul’s minions were handing out these little fliers all over the FAU campus Tuesday. This one was handed to me by a 40ish woman and her young son. Thursday’s the big Ron Paul rally! Not only do we get to wave signs, but we get to paint car windows, and we might even see the Ron Paul blimp! I’m just a tiny bit scared that my attendance at this rally may be misconstrued as actual support for Ron Paul. — LAUREN SELSKY Read more on Florida Report: Deface Cars For Ron Paul!…
 

Hillary, John & Barry Put Vegas To Sleep

That was sure worth getting up before dawn and making a five-hour drive to Las Vegas! Thanks, Democrats. Our coverage for the night is just about over, but we’ll have much more Campaign Trail Fun all over Las Vegas on Wednesday, which is basically today. There will be events, and perhaps a rally of some kind! All in the cause of giving Americans a “safety valve” so they can “blow off steam” by voting for pretty much identical elitist candidates. Anyway, here’s a recap of Wonkette’s Tuesday in Nevada, plus more pictures, if you want them. Read more on Hillary, John & Barry Put Vegas To Sleep…
 

Live Wonkette Nevada Debate/Caucus Coverage, Tomorrow!

Still no nominees, right? Okay then, we’ll continue covering these damned caucuses and primaries. Tomorrow is Michigan’s primary, but it doesn’t really count except for a little bit, but only for the Republicans. (Michigan is always getting in trouble for screwing up the primaries.) And that’s why we’ll be in Nevada tomorrow. It’s time for the exciting Democrat Debate in Las Vegas — although it’s hard to imagine a debate without charismatic firebrand Bill Richardson. And then the ongoing spectacle of casino-buffet employees learning how to do an Iowa-style caucus, but in casino banquet halls. Live Nevada Coverage from beautiful Las Vegas begins tomorrow afternoon. We’re even going to the debate and the spin room and all, even though we should know better by now.
