Cartoon Violence Makes War On Politico’s Matt Wuerker

It is easy to forget sometimes that D.C. area event planner Politico actually won a Pulitzer Prize in 2012. Not for their morning-winning, afternoon-winning news coverage, mind you, (lol, u guys.) but for their editorial cartoons, drawn by this guy Matt Wuerker. Like many a baby boomer — man — Wuerker used to be cool, before he sold out. He began his career cartooning for Portland’s alternative newspaper Willamette Week in the early 1980s, producing comics and illustrations in a self-taught and abrasive style that now feels uniquely of its time — specifically that “black and white revolution” in alternative comics, the one with all the zines and the post-punk and hardcore show posters. With an aesthetic as distinctive as Robbie Conal’s political grotestques or Raymond Pettibon’s album art for Black Flag, Wuerker pretty soon took his cartoons national. He published with the likes of FAIR’s Extra!, the Nation, and Z magazine. He did animation for music videos. He illustrated a book of essays about U.S. media propaganda for Edward S. Herman. Yes, THAT Edward S. Herman. The guy who wrote Manufacturing Consent with Noam “Chain Chomp” Chomsky. (For God’s sake, just look at the cover Wuerker drew for Herman’s book. His Bush Sr. is like a fucking GARGOYLE!!! It’s tremendous!) Matt Wuerker was, in short, the kinda man you’d catch stealing Economists from Walddenbooks while paying for his Utne Readers. Back off, man; Matt Wuerker would have those signatures in for PIRG by the end of his shift. That painting in the coffee shop? That’s Matt Wuerker’s! What do YOU care?! So. How did this man come to co-found Politico? It seems crazy right? Like learning that Henry Rollins now does voice work for direct-to-dvd superhero cartoons. Wouldn’t that be nuts!? Especially if one of them was Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. Welcome to part two of your Wonkette’s campaign against Pulitzer Cartoon Violence.

Someone Please Assure Us That This ‘Steampunk Palin’ Comic Is An Elaborate Prank

Everyone should drop what they’re doing right now and give a million Pulitzers to the Comics Alliance for blowing the lid off of an upcoming “Steampunk Palin” comic book/graphic novel/spank mag. It is (obviously) about a near-future crisis where “Big Oil/Nuke” seizes control of energy production and so everyone has to switch to steam power (STEAM IS USUALLY GENERATED BY BOILING WATER WITH HEAT DERIVED FROM FOSSIL FUELS OR NUCLEAR POWER FYI), and then Sarah Palin is terribly injured by a bomb and wakes up months later having been turned into a steampunk cyborg superhero. With very large breasts? We’re not sure how that fits into this. (Haha, we are 100% sure how it fits into this: it helps you masturbate to the drawings more vigorously.) Anyway, if you would like to see more amazing/traumatizing images from this nightmare, which we’re pretty sure you do, go ahead and click the “READ MORE” link.

Here Is Photo Proof That Newt Gingrich Is Finally President of Space

Well, Newt Gingrich has at last achieved his lifelong goal of conquering the void of empty space. Just look at him out there, the brave emperor of a vast, dark and lonely realm surrounded by his only true companions, some insane person in a scary-looking costume and an elephant. We just knew you could do it, Newt. We just knew. [Buzzfeed] Read more on Here Is Photo Proof That Newt Gingrich Is Finally President of Space…

And Here Is a Photo of Michele Bachmann Disguised As a Pig

This is your Monday Fun Post picture of famous nut Michele Bachmann dressed in some kind of furry costume whilst campaigning for reelection in Hugo, Minnesota this weekend. That’s nice. Is this because Michele Bachmann loves pork barrel spending on the pork industry, in her home state? So meta! Or maybe she is simply having a bad hair day? Ugh, your Wonkette is being sexist. Or you tell us what is happening. Caption contest! Read more on And Here Is a Photo of Michele Bachmann Disguised As a Pig…

Congratulations, Your ‘I’m With Mitt’ Photos Are Shameful Filth

Whoops, it turns out that when you wheedle your Editrix into doing a Wonkette contest she expects you to judge the contest! What a meanie. Because your Comics Curmudgeon does not like saying no to people or making them feel bad! And lots of you submitted funny Mitt Romney I’m With Mitt Instagram iPhone Photos Of Hilarity, and we would love to showcase them all but there were too many so we picked seven. One was from heroine reader “MissTaken,” showing that birth control is a liberal lie because she used all those ABORTION TOOLS in the picture but still ended up a Mom For Mitt anyway. What are the other six pictures, and will any of them feature testicles? Find out after the jump! (SPOILER: Yes, of course there will be testicles.)

Send Us Your Dumb Romney-App Instagram Pix, If You Want To Be Cool

OK, yes, ha ha, we’ve all had a good laugh about the fact that version 1.0 of Mitt Romney’s world-beating With Mitt iPhone app proclaimed that he would proudly lead his real home nation of “Amercia,” but I think we’re missing the important point here: the only thing this app does is overlay a series of dumb Mitt-themed graphics over whatever you want to take a picture of, and you can take a picture of literally anything, and then upload it to the Internet or whatever, which opens the door to eleven kinds of hilarity! Remember in the Wonkette days of yore, when everyone got so excited because the Bush re-election campaign let you put text on a campaign sign, and you could add stuff about buttsex and the like? With With Mitt: The App, you could actually take a picture of buttsex and make it into a fake Mitt campaign ad! Well, technically the user agreement says that you agree “that any images you use, upload, or display do not contain material inappropriate for children … [or] that is offensive or in bad taste,” so, anal is kind of a grey area, but surely no one could object to this adorable picture of your Comics Curmudgeon’s cat, could they? The image denotes what President Romney will be doing on Day One Job One, which is to say: cowering under his desk. But wait, can you do better?

Everyone Is Playing With Etch A Sketches, Because of Politics!

Romney guy Eric Fehrnstrom sure made a funny when he went on television today and said of the general election, “It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all of over again.” What an IDIOT. Now everyone is making mean jokes about the Etch A Sketch children’s toy, on Twitter and TwitPixxx. Look at Rick Santorum in the car there, playing with his Mitt Romney gaffe toy, and not enjoying it at all. Ol’ Newt is playing with the drawing machine too! Oh, these wiseacres.

Whoops, Rod Blagojevich ‘Got Lost’ on Way to Federal Prison

Here is Rod Blagojevich having a grand old time on his way to a federal prison in Colorado, according to this grainy shot from NBC Chicago. Is he excited for jail? Or does he know something we don’t know? Let’s check the report: “It wasn’t immediately clear where Rod Blagojevich’s car was headed when it passed up the entrance to the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) Englewood more than once.” Hm. What was he thinking? It’s ten hours to Mexico, guys! “Attorney Aaron Goldstein later confirmed they initially got lost on the way to the facility,” or something. BOO. And also: Good save, lawyer dude! Anyway, Blago is now inmate No. 40892-424, the end. [NBC Chicago] Read more on Whoops, Rod Blagojevich ‘Got Lost’ on Way to Federal Prison…

Watch Newt Gingrich Sleep With His Comical Sleeping Faces

Ever wondered what fairest Cally Gingrich wakes up to every morning? Most mornings? (The occasional morning?) No, you haven’t. But in any event, it’s this face, right here. This is Newt Gingrich, asleep, muttering nonsense about Leon Panetta, while waiting to speak to AIPAC via satellite. But really, him being asleep before the speech — who doesn’t like to sleep? — was the least embarrassing part of his address, because he didn’t really, have a… speech…. to give. Good heavens. Hang in there Newtie, good times are coming! Read more on Watch Newt Gingrich Sleep With His Comical Sleeping Faces…
