World’s Best Judge Sends 3 Children To Juvie — Indefinitely — For Refusing To Have Lunch With Dad (UPDATED)

Or if you're a kid in her court, serving Life.
Update: New developments; see end of post. Let’s all raise a glass to our own common sense today, as we can all celebrate the fact that we have a hell of a lot more of it than Oakland County (Michigan) Family Court Judge Lisa Gorcyca, who recently sent three children, aged 9 to 14, to juvenile detention for contempt of court after they refused to have lunch with their dad. The kids, stuck in one of those horrible divorce/custody cases that make family court so much fun for everyone, claim that their father is violent and hit their mother; the father claims that the mother poisoned the children against him, and somehow Judge Gorcyca decided that instead of doing anything about either parent, the best thing for everyone involved would be to slap three already emotionally fragile kids into a facility for juvenile criminal offenders. Until September. Read more on World’s Best Judge Sends 3 Children To Juvie — Indefinitely — For Refusing To Have Lunch With Dad (UPDATED)…

Scott Walker’s Wife Makes Strong Bid to be Grifter-in-Chief

Oh good lord it is impossible to go back and see how many times we’ve had to write about horrible semi-human Scott Walker and money. We have approximately eleventy-gillion tabs open right now looking at past Wonkette missives about just how Walker’s entire political career is built on dicking over the poors while lining his own pockets. Remember Walker cockblocking Milwaukee from requiring employers to have sick days? How about being a whiny little twerp about only making $144K a year? And let’s not forget that golden oldie: buying iPads for state workers as long as they work in the agency you created.  Basically, Scott Walker is an untrammeled dick. However, for really unvarnished awfulness, you really need to look at Walker’s wife, the improbably named Tonette Walker. Read more on Scott Walker’s Wife Makes Strong Bid to be Grifter-in-Chief…

Can You Guess Which Congresscritter Cast Lone ‘No’ Vote On Actually Sane Bill About ‘Lunatics’?

Here at Wonkette, we never ever forget to be unrelentingly smug and cynical about the U.S. House of Representatives. And really, why the hell not?  They’re a veritable parade of horribles. See, for example, everything Ron Paul has ever done. (We are only linking to the most recent awful Ron Paul thing because you do not want this post to be eleventy thousand words long, do you?) See also perennial anger-weeping oompa-loompa John Boehner. (Again, only one link people. Do you want to find all the horrible things we have written about Ron Paul and John Boehner? Use the search box at the top like anyone else.) See also, too, the fact that they stone cold hate disabled people. (GodDAMN you U.S. House of Representatives* for making us feel sorry for Bob Dole, which we thought was unpossible.) Sometimes, though, the House does something minorly not-horrible: Read more on Can You Guess Which Congresscritter Cast Lone ‘No’ Vote On Actually Sane Bill About ‘Lunatics’?…

NICE TRY, FRAUDBOT: Oh looky, she’s changed her story: “The student, Ashley Todd, of College Station, Texas, initially said a black man robbed her at knifepoint Wednesday night and then cut her cheek after seeing a McCain sticker on her car. Police say bank surveillance footage doesn’t show her at an ATM where she says she was attacked. Todd, who is white, now says she was knocked unconscious and doesn’t remember being cut. She now says she only discovered the wound later.” She is the President of Lies. [AP] Read more on …
