Hi, Wonkaloonies! Yr Doktor Zoom really enjoyed “sleeping in” this week! But we are back from vacation now, and ready for another Derp Roundup, our weekly Sloppy Joe of news trimmings that were too stoopid to ignore altogether but not quite enough to make a full post out of. We have to use ‘em before […]

It’s another day, so you know what that means. Some obscure conservative will say something stupid about how our society is turning into Nazi Germany because of teh gehys and silly womyn wanting to abort all the babies on the planet. Which no-name loon will we be mocking today? Via The Atlantic Wire: [Justice Antonin] […]

We here at Yr Wonkette are fond of mocking the ever-lovin’ shit out of Republicans who are fond of saying that such-and-such or so-and-so is just like Hitler or Nazis or the Holocaust, or some variation thereon. Like how overhearing things at Sen. Mitch McConnell’s office is just like the gestapo. (Also, Watergate, which we […]

From time to time, you hear about fascinating, inventive teaching techniques that make the subject matter come alive for students. For instance, astute commenter Chet Kincaid recently recalled a mass media class in college where “the professor came up with a network television role-playing game to help us understand how TV worked as a business” […]

There’s a funny joke that liberals tell each other (okay, I lie, liberals are never funny because they are too busy being offended by non-lesbians) about how if Obama came out against Nazis, conservatives would find a way to defend them. Well, guess what, libtards? JOKE NO MORE. President Obama issued a statement yesterday to commemorate […]

It was very exciting to learn that the young Mitt Romney maybe baptized the sad ghosts of Jewish victims of the Nazi Holocaust, to turn them into followers of Mitt’s folk religion. Who knew Mitt ever did anything but the kind of vicious 1% capitalism that ruins the lives of countless Americans? Well now, thanks […]

The environmentalist wackos in the Obama Administration “asked Congress to provide a $4 billion loan guarantee for two new nuclear reactors to be built and operated on the Gulf Coast of Texas — by Tokyo Electric Power and local partners,” ha ha. Because there’s nothing greener than money nuclear power, built by a scandal-plagued Japanese […]

Those Nazis made it close for a while, but in the end, it couldn’t have gone to a better guy.

Hey, moron with the “health care reform = Dachau” sign at yesterday’s protest: freaking Elie Wiesel hates you, or at the very least… you know… considers that a false equivalency. On Twitter. [Twitter]

Monstrous wingnut Joseph Ratzinger somehow became pope a few years ago — this is because of ancient Catholic-Sith rules dictating that each “good pope” must be followed by a “loathsome beast.” But Ratzi is unique even among the Sith Popes, for he is the first Bishop of Rome to be an actual Nazi, for Hitler, […]

Remember that time you were like “oo look a comic book about mice” and then you were like “this shit’s not funny it’s about the Holocaust”? Whoops! Well, Art Spiegelman, the author of that comic book (Maus) will be making a rare public appearance tonight at the Corcoran Art Gallery.

PALIN FOOLISHLY SAYS WORDS AGAIN: We’re getting used to this routine where once a day, usually mid-afternoon, a spasm of death shoots up our right arm after reading the latest Sarah Palin platitude. Is this what cancer feels like, cancer people? Today she pretended to care about Jews, and she went all in: “I will […]

Here’s a priceless video from Hutton Gibson, the conspiracy theory-obsessed, Holocaust-denying father of similarly insane Mel Gibson, endorsing who else but Ron Paul. The video opens and closes with stark images of the Holy Cross in the middle of a thunderstorm. Then Gibson, 84, and a “Jeopardy Champion” (go Josh!), says that “the only way […]
