Hissing hate module Laura Ingraham will be joining the roundtable on ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos, apparently because they need someone who’s got the guts to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington by cutting off a recording of a speech by John Lewis with the sound of a gunshot. Or maybe […]

The PC police are at large in Texas, just cold ruining life again for decent godfearing men who are merely talking about protecting their property and their nation. Latest member of this oppressed victim class: U.S. Senate candidate Chris Mapp, whose free speech rights are imperiled just because he called illegal border-crossers “wetbacks” and said […]

After nearly a week, the poutrage over that Coca-Cola ad in wrong languages hasn’t abated much. Jon Stewart wonders what the fuss was about — possibly the ad’s “dangerous levels of schmaltz”? No, it’s all that scary foreign talk in an ad with a bunch of brown people. How dare they desecrate our national anthem! […]

Time for another plunge into the ol’ comments queue, and the good news is that we just got a new shipment of industrial-strength rubber gloves! Our first missive comes from wannabe art director “rogerinorlando,” whose name and location we will not release. Rogerinorlando was not pleased by DDM’s choice of graphics for a recent story […]

Buenos dias, wonkeros and wonkiritas. Are you tired of reading/hearing/tweeting about #BRIDGEGHAZI yet? Isn’t there some other outrageous news from petulant rightwing asshats that we can carp about for a while? Well, glad you asked! New Hampshire Senator and Tea Party favorite Kelly Ayotte has set her sights on screwing immigrants across the country. No, […]

There’s government openness, and then there’s government openness — like for instance the Cecil County Government building in Elkton, Maryland, which will be the meeting place for a Ku Klux Klan group today; the Confederate White Knights will be renting the building’s Elk Room so they can gripe about immigration and make plans for the […]

We hope some of you Wonkettarians are into Jazz Age cosplay, because we’re going to be spending a few weeks in the 1920s as played out in our rightwing Christian textbooks. As we saw last week,our textbooks are pretty accurate and unproblematic when they have a real war to talk about — plenty of dakka-dakka […]

Drudge Sirens Panic Where’s the birth sertifikate INNPEACH!!! It appears that B. Hussein Obama, the alleged “President of the United States,” lied through his teeth in 2011 when someone other than Barack Obama said that Barack Obama had never met his Kenyan uncle. Confused? Well then, become enlightened, via the Boston Globe: President Obama acknowledged […]

Phyllis Schlafly, the Queen Mum of rightwing hate, is getting pretty tired of the poor and the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. So yesterday, she tossed a tempest; in a radio commentary, she insisted that the Statue of Liberty actually “has nothing whatsoever to do with immigration.” Schlafly also dismissed Emma Lazarus’ poem “The […]

Faced with a massive wave of Tea Partiers fleeing from his 2016 presidential hopes because of his support for comprehensive immigration reform, Florida Senator Marco Rubio is doing what he can to build a higher wall against further progress on fixing America’s broken immigration system. It is not known whether his new opposition to immigration […]

Buenos dias, Wonketeers. After weeks of pointless grandstanding by modern-day Dr. Suess El Senor Canadiano Ted Cruz, aren’t we all ready for Congress to, you know, do something positive rather than just tank fourth quarter economic output? Hey, how about that comprehensive immigration reform that the Senate was all positive about. Could be a good […]

Iowa congressman Steve King was the star speaker at a “Stop Amnesty” rally in Richmond, Virginia, Monday, and supporters stayed away in droves — the crowd was estimated at between 30 and 60 people, almost none of whom appeared to be valedictorians or drug mules with calves the size of cantaloupes. Despite the disappointing turnout, […]

Unless you have been living under a rock over the last few years, you know that the GOP has a not-so-new idea to try to win elections: prevent those who would vote against them from being able to vote, in the name of stopping voter fraud, which doesn’t really exist in any meaningful way, but […]

What happens to a DREAMer deferred? Apparently, s/he and a bunch of friends show up at Rep. Steve King’s Capitol Hill office to shame him for being such a hateful, small, cowardly, xenophobic shitstain toward human beings who were born in other, browner countries. Of course, not being human himself, but rather a crusty, gross […]

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Derp) is a special favorite of yr Wonkette. He makes us laugh, and his inspirational example reminds us that even the incredibly stupid have a shot at following their dreams. So we were just tickled to find this installment of Gohmert’s indie webseries “The Blair Wingnut Project” pixeling and garbling at us […]
