First up! We can’t improve on this Buzzfeed story (!) so go get you some New Pope, bein’ best! Hey, What’s Jim Newell been up to lately? Just stone cold liveblooging the Sebelius hearings is what! Let us know if anything happens, okay you guys?
Oh, yeah, no. Not from us. It is Saturday, and we are going to do Saturday things. Saturday things like “go to the post office,” and “mail out some Smoking Joe cups,” and “buy all the wine,” and “see if KBJ wants to hang out,” and “get a facial,” as we are an entrepreneuress and [...]
According to the RNC’s Twitter droppings, handouts and giveaways are actually Patriotic, so long as they are given to wall-eyed fetus fetishists at CPAC and not the 670 million poors currently bankrupting the Federal treasury. Jim Newell, please enjoy your courtesy racist Barack Obama USB dongle! [RNC]
HOORAY! That is what your semi-managing editor has to say about this important news, from your beloved past-and-future Wonkette typing monster of Capitol Hill, Jim Newell: An Important Announcement Regarding Your Gawker Political Desk: Goodbye Tuesday greetings from the Gawker Political Desk! We have some news: This will be the last post for its main [...]
It seems like only a week ago that America gathered around its iPad or whatever and watched the 2010 Weeping Eagle Awards, which were not actually broadcast.

HAS ANYONE SEEN JIM NEWELL? Wonkette’s Capitol Hill Typing Demon was supposed to go to a dozen or more Media/Nobama parties over this White House Correspondents Dinner weekend, but we haven’t heard from him since Friday. Was he raped or killed or sent to Fox News or something?
Why, who’s that dashing young gent sitting up in a tree? Dr. Hunter Holmes McGuire, of course, the famous Civil War surgeon. Also spotted in Richmond: for the first time ever, somebody actually recognized your editors in public. We were leaving Amici and this perfectly nice-seeming, non-degenerate couple walked by and said, “Hey are you [...]
Capitol Hill typing demon Jim Newell has won an Important Honor! He probably thanks you for your support, in his way. [Washington City Paper]
MORE CONTESTS! Here, go vote for “local blogger” Jim Newell and “local yoga celebrity” Liz Glover in this popularity contest run by Atlanta’s “Creative Loafing” freebie. So fun, to click things! We are on the road to Recovery. [CityPaper]
NOTED: “Jim Newell’s deconstruction of WSJ Reaganite-apostate Peggy Noonan’s inauguration column is even more unkind — perhaps even unfair. I really don’t see why he chose those three sentences to bf and annotate, for instance. Nevertheless, what a deft little Hatchett Job.” [Robert Christgau]
IT’S YOUR JIM NEWELL Q&A: “Transexual? Transsexual? We use this word frequently on Wonkette, but God knows how it’s spelled.” [Fishbowl DC]
