Fox News Jackass Greg Gutfeld Will Keep Fetuses In Wastebaskets Where They Belong

This is what Greg Gutfeld looks like when he thinks he just made a point.
This is what Greg Gutfeld looks like when he thinks he just made a point. Yr Wonkette, as you know, is a pro-life mommyblog. HEAR US OUT. We’re pro-life in the REAL, grown-up way, the one where abortion is legal, and women should have a right to do with their living bodies as they please, and we believe in doing all that we can to support living, breathing human beings. Also, fetal tissue research is VITAL to finding cures for cancer and developing vaccines and all sorts of other things. Heck, it’s so great that wingnut presidential candidate Ben Carson used to do it all the time! So, considering these facts, it’s very PRO-LIFE to support women in their choices to donate fetal tissue after abortions, so that tissue can be used to SAVE THE WORLD!

  Worst. viral. video. ever.

Dinesh D’Souza Parodied Obama’s Ferns Video. Remember, Satire Doesn’t Have To Be Funny.

Oh, look! Patronizing scold Dinesh D’Souza has branched out from just yammering about how Barack Hussein Obama is the worst, most un-American president ever, and now he’s made a video parody of that “Between All the Ferns On Zack Galifianakis’s Lap” video that Barry was in. And he sure hopes it goes viral! It’s full of hip humor, like how in the corner, instead of “Funny or Die,” it says “Live Free Or Die”! And D’Souza, the scholarly non-scholar who knows all about high-minded things like Liberty and the Constitution, gives us a master class in conservative satire, cleverly repurposing Obama’s lines in the original, funny interview so that they can be turned against the anticolonial ideologue in this bravely non-funny parody.

Who You Gonna Believe About Lincoln? Some Nerd History Guy Or Stephen Colbert?

Stephen Colbert has the skinny on Barack Obama’s presidency-destroying interview with Zach Galifianakis, which “set off a firestorm everywhere, from Fox News to later in the day on Fox News.” The montage of clips from Fox explaining how the short video mortally wounded the President’s dignity is worth the price of admission all by itself. And then there’s the beautiful abject failure of the rightwing attempts to call the video an abject failure — traffic to healthcare.gov went up 40% Tuesday after the video went viral.

Bill O’Reilly Pretty Sure Lincoln Would Not Have Japed And Jested With Zach Galifianakis

It looks like the consensus is in: Barack Obama must resign or be impeached because he was in a six minute comedy video. The presidency is obviously damaged beyond repair. And now we can add Lincoln Authority Bill O’Reilly to the list of astute scholars of What A President Mayst Do. On his Tuesday program, O’Reilly led with the scandalous scandal, explaining that based on his vast awareness of the 16th President, “All I can tell is you is Abe Lincoln would not have done it,” because as everyone knows, Lincoln never went on any social media at all. Billo also suggested that the video was a sign that Obamacare must be a complete failure, asking whether “Using a comedic web site to enroll people is a little bit desperate, don’t you think?” Maybe it is! Though maybe it’s not quite as desperate as having a snit fit just because somebody else had a far better interview with the president than O’Reilly did.

Zach Galifianakis Interviews Obama, And Twitchy Has Thoughts About It Buried In There Somewhere We Guess

Here is a funny “video” of Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns interviewing one B. Barack Obama that you have probably already seen, because you probably did not sleep in until seven a.m. Pacific like some kind of slob jerk who sleeps in all day and then does something else slobby and jerky, we do not even know, this Daylight Saving Time changeover kind of did a number on us, and now we sort of suck at our “job” of typing dick jokes on the Internet and having examples of things that would be slobby and jerky. It is funny! There’s at least two, possibly three, fuck it let’s call it four, good loud laughs in there. Bamz is steely-eyed and pissy, it’s great! But someone on the Internet does not think it is great, and that someone is the nine fulltime staffers at Twitchy, the meth kingdom formerly Thought Leadered by pucker-faced spite robot Michelle Malkin! They do not think it is great, at all! And they would like to … well, not explain exactly. Or illuminate. Or even get in a good SNAP YA BURNT! They would like to post like 12 tweets from people replying to some random reporter, a sound and derpy that signify nothing. Let us witness it, because for some fucking reason that is the job we bought us. Read more on Zach Galifianakis Interviews Obama, And Twitchy Has Thoughts About It Buried In There Somewhere We Guess…

Wait, Is It Even Possible To Parody Tea Party Birthers?

And how do we know, for sure, that this video is satirical in nature? Maybe that “Funny or Die” website just spent all weekend searching the YouTubes for the most insane example of current Birther pop art. Hell, it’s how we find the comedy!

City Council Meetings Finally Interest 10-Year-Olds

We’re not sure if this is funny or not — no, actually, we are sure it’s not funny, at all, but it is puerile and dumb and basically nobody knows how to act like an adult.

It’s A Political Comedy Video With All Of Your Favorite People!

We have no idea who the people behind “Funny or Die” are… but apparently they are very well connected in Hollywood and Washington? This thing has its moments, such as Mike Gravel quietly reading the Pentagon Papers and Madame Peggington Noonanshire simply showing her Shining face.

McCain Will Kill Us All, Says Superhero Gal

We don’t really talk about the “comedy” around here because, come on, we are already writing about Sarah Palin every day, for real. But this is kind of cute. This Hayden Panettiere was in D.C. earlier this year, saving the whales. Now she is just cold hatin’ on the old crazy person who wants to kills us all, in the war. Whoa, hey, another one after the jump. Read more on McCain Will Kill Us All, Says Superhero Gal…
 

All You Need Is A Bunch Of Hippie Obama Endorsements

Sure, Hopeful Barack Obama just got a bunch of endorsements from important political constituencies such as the mostly naked nymphs of American Apparel, the wealthy elderly survivors of the Grateful Dead, “jam band” hero Dave Matthews and teevee’s Dr. McCoy DeForest Kelly Oscar(TM)-winner Forest Whitaker. But what about half-dead pop groups from 40 years ago? [Funny Or Die] Read more on All You Need Is A Bunch Of Hippie Obama Endorsements…
