Deleted Comments Of The Day: You Youngsters Know Nothing Of Ronald Reagan’s Work

Scootaloo is a skateboard punk rocker. Let's hope she ends up saner than Michelle Shocked.
It’s been a little while since we’ve skimmed the foam off the top of the waste lagoon that is our Comments Queue, and so let’s see what’s bubbled to the top. Please make sure you’re wearing OSHA-compliant eye and cerebral cortex protection. Read more on Deleted Comments Of The Day: You Youngsters Know Nothing Of Ronald Reagan’s Work…

CIA Screwed Up So Bad That Biggest Fangirl Dianne Feinstein Yelling At Them Now (VIDEO)

Yeah yeah, we know, it’s just so hypocritical of iconic Bond girl Dianne Feinstein to suddenly be acting all hotted up about domestic spying now that she’s the one getting domestic spied on. It’s very ironic and so on, but that’s not the important thing. The important thing is: If you are someone who wants a new Church Committee to ram home a deep, broad, penetrating probe of CIA, NSA, FBI, and all the rest, you should be happy. The chances of that happening just got a lot better. And boy, it’s about time. To us, the most striking thing about this whole affair has not been the accusations against the CIA, but rather just how badly they’ve handled themselves in response. It’s like when you catch a kid with his hand in the cookie jar, and his reaction is to yell “FUCK YOU! My hand was not in the cookie jar, and even if it was it’s none of your fucking business! DO YOU HEAR ME I WILL CUT YOU! I WILL SHIT IN YOUR SHOES!” In other words, the CIA is very much like Justin Bieber or a 19-year-old son.

David Brooks To Teach Next Generation Of Elites To Be ‘Humble,’ At Yale

Yes, by virtue of his New York Times column and his occasional PBS appearances, David Brooks has been qualified to teach something. And — get this — it is a class in HUMILITY. Which will be taught to the children of the 1% at Yale.  Everything about this begs to be made fun of. Read more on David Brooks To Teach Next Generation Of Elites To Be ‘Humble,’ At Yale…

Mitt Romney’s Transition Website Was Live An Entire Day After He Lost, Because He Is Terrible At Politics

O hai Romney transition website developer! Did you know that if you have a website you do not yet want people to see yet, you can hide it?

We do not blame you, web development is hard! You know: UNLESS IT IS YOUR JOB TO DEVELOP THE WEB.

Obama Just Cold Trolling Conservatives With Obama-Centric Reagan Bio

We at Your Wonkette found it kind of tacky and ridiculous when we read everywhere that some tone-deaf deciderer on Obama’s communications staff had decidered to update each former president’s biography with references to Bamz himself. A little hubristic, fellows, no? But that was before we saw that this included even St. Ronald Reagan! And oh, everyone is just spitting mad! What is in Reagan’s White House bio now? Simply that he joins Obama from beyond the grave in calling for the Buffett Rule. FUCK YEAH GHOST RONALD REAGAN! All is forgiven, Obama communications staff. Have fun trolling all the Breitards!

Journalism Suggests Sheila Jackson Lee Is a Murderer

Today The Daily Caller, for some reason, has a long profile on all the objectionable things Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has done over the years. It is a lot of things! Why is it that people with power are so commonly awful and so rarely humble? Humanity sucks! But there is evidence Jackson Lee is especially awful: Staffers in other offices say they hear screaming and crying coming from behind Jackson Lee’s closed doors and are afraid to loan her office a knife. Is Sheila Jackson Lee torturing people in her office and eventually murdering them? Probably, according to The Daily Caller! Read more on Journalism Suggests Sheila Jackson Lee Is a Murderer…
