In Which G. Gordon Liddy is Hung Upside Down and Forced to Perform For Your Amusement

Watergate burglar and all-around thug G. Gordon Liddy was on NBC’s “Celebrity Fear Factor” last night. Yeah, while you were busy watching some fairies dance around in stupid girly clothes, the main plumber himself was getting repeatedly dunked in a large tank of water while Joe Rogan came all over himself with (very heterosexual) man-love.

Wonk’d: Blinged Out Edition

Spotted this week were some damn fine Americans, with a whole lot of shiny metal at home on their mantels. Mia Hamm has her World Cup trophies, Anderson Cooper has his Emmy, Michael Hayden has all that weird military stuff on his shirt, and Jimmy Carter has that thing they call a Nobel. Not everyone can be number one, though, so just enjoy what you can — like Donald Rumsfeld and his juicy steaks, or Antonin Scalia and his fancy car. Feed your need for life envy; there are lots more people richer than you. Check out the sightings, after the jump. Oh, and intern season is here! It sure is great that just as soon as the laminate dries on their cute little “109th Congress Intern” badges, they’re off and sending us tips. Act like an intern and send in your own via email, with “Wonk’d” or “Sighting” in the subject line, and the name of the fancy pants you spotted. We won’t pay you anything, just like real interns!

Wonkette Party Crash: CEI Awards, Part Two

As we previously mentioned, last night Team Wonkette attended the annual CEI Dinner. We’ve already given you some great photos from the event. Now we provide you with this more detailed write-up of the proceedings, as promised. All in all, it was an excellent evening. P.J. O’Rourke was in funny, fine form. The liquor flowed liberally, and the after-party featured free cigars and cigarettes (plus scrumptious chocolate eclairs). And did we mention the dancing libertarians? What more can one ask for? Our full take on the evening, including more excellent pictures by Liz Gorman, appears after the jump. Read more on Wonkette Party Crash: CEI Awards, Part Two…
 

Conservative Bizarro World

Isn’t usually the prerogative of the disenfranchised to invent elaborate dystopian fantasies of what will happen under the rule of the oppressor? Exactly what part of the Bush “I’m-gonna-appoint- whomever-I-want-so- whaddya-gonna-do-about- it-nah-nanny-nah-nah” Presidency is so unsatisfying that conservatives would need to engage in this particular fantasy?
