Clinton Dismisses Jesse Jackson Comment With Defiant ‘Meh’

Folks who didn’t consider Bill Clinton’s use of “fairy tale” or “young man” to be THOROUGHGOING RACISM couldn’t find much ambiguity in his comparison of Obama’s South Carolina romp to that unimportant “black candidate” Jesse Jackson and his wins there in the ’80s. As it happens, we forced our interns to research the history of politics, and they discovered that other humans have won primaries and caucuses in this state before — white humans. So how are the Clintons planning on spinning this little number away? Well, her campaign’s first talking point — full list after the jump — is “No.” No race cards! No! Good Lord, no. I like this strategy, it’s fun. Read more on Clinton Dismisses Jesse Jackson Comment With Defiant ‘Meh’…

Wonk’d: Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

In another August “where’d everybody go” edition of Wonk’d we found Bill and Chelsea Clinton shopping for “MV” stickers and James Carville and Mary Matalin trying not to get stuck in DC. At right, Eleanor Clift looks lost too. If you’re caught here and can’t escape, take a cue from Joe Lieberman and enjoy yourself with a nice long lunch somewhere nice. Because, just like Joe, come November you might just miss this place after all. Today’s Wonk’d is two weeks worth of sightings that we saved up and couple we had ourselves. We know you can do better. Please suppress thoughts like “Oh, Wonkette won’t care about him, he’s not even in office anymore.” Trust us, we want to hear about it. Just send over a little email with “Wonk’d” or “Sighting” in the subject line and the name of the person who wouldn’t make a sightings column in any other city. For scraping the bottom of the barrel, we thank you. Read more on Wonk’d: Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder…
 

Wonk’d: This Week With Pretty Pictures

Today’s edition of Wonk’d comes with a pretty picture. First, the sighting: On Wednesday [3/22] I saw Kimora Lee Simmons (Russell Simmons’s wife) in her SUPER GOD DAMN OBNOXIOUS “tour bus” (what the fuck is she touring for??). Her “job” is to make sure Russ gets plenty of BJs, that her breast implants are replaced and upgraded every couple of years, and she gets enough publicity for marrying a rich black dude… But here’s the kicker: an official US govt. black SUV (license plate USSS9) was escorting her from downtown down M street to the Four Seasons Hotel!!! Your tax dollars at work, folks! Is this a great fucking country or what??? And now, the picture: Finally, an addendum from this reader: Turns out she’s on a ‘book-signing’ tour for her new book, ‘Fabulosity.’ (As if she can or even has to read or write!! More brainless bimbos taking up causes they can’t even pronounce. Gotta love it.) After the jump, additional celeb sightings (but sans pictures). Remember: please continue to send us your sightings, with “Wonk’d” or “Sighting” in the subject line. Thanks everyone! Read more on Wonk’d: This Week With Pretty Pictures…
