  The new McCarthyism is just as gay as the Old McCarthyism

Good Christians To Smoke All The Homosexuals Out Of 2016 Candidates’ Hidey-Holes

This time we'll burn the GAY witches!
It’s very tough to be a “family values” conservative these days! The Republican Party, for many years now, has viewed its wingnut anti-gay base as A Great Big Useful Idiot, so they all have a contest to see who can pay them the most lip service about God Hates Fags, and then they elect people who totally BETRAY THEM by failing to ban gays from even existing. Ken Mehlman used to run the RNC, and then he magically turned into a homosexual and now fights for so-called gay “marriage.” Laura Bush thinks it’s okay for the homosexuals to get married too! And do not even get them STARTED on Cindy and Meghan McCain, those gay-lovin’ bitches. So a group of wingnuts that calls itself the American Renewal Project has decided to go full McCarthy, investigating all the 2016 candidates, as well as their families and staff members, to see what kinda homosexuals and gay-lovers they’re hiding: Read more on Good Christians To Smoke All The Homosexuals Out Of 2016 Candidates’ Hidey-Holes…

Nice Republicans Demand SCOTUS Give Them All The Gay Marriages

What a silly news day it has been, what with learning that Future Permanent Queen Of America Hillary Clinton still has to load one of those free AOL disks every time she wants to do either diplomacy or lunch with a foreign official, and that awful warmonger, who is not Dick Cheney, talking to Congress about how Iran will destroy Israel on Twitter, we are exhausted.

Romney Advisor Wants Free Gay Abortions For Everyone!

Oh, golly, this is exciting! Some guy named Dave Kochel, one of Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign advisors, said on an Iowa TV politics show, “frankly, the culture wars are kind of over and Republicans largely lost.” Whoohoo! Performance art and free abortions for everybody! Read more on Romney Advisor Wants Free Gay Abortions For Everyone!…

Ken Mehlman’s Official Gay Coming-Out Party Happening Now!

Rumors about former RNC chair Ken Mehlman’s Complete Gayness have been swirling around for years and years.  Mike Rogers outed him several years back, as part of his campaign to rid the political world of homosexuals who cynically use the rest of the gay community as bait in order to convince rubes, yahoos, bumpkins and other morons to set down the teevee clicker even if it means missing the last five minutes of The 700 Club, in order to go out and vote Republican, due to abject fear of gays.  Mehlman’s sins were particularly egregious, since we are after all talking about the guy who helped run the most anti-gay presidential campaign in history, which gave us Four More Years of the Crawford hick and his handlers, Karl and Dick.

World’s Greatest Wonk’d: Bernanke, Novak, Ridge, Thompson, America’s Mayor & Many More!

A week ago today, we bitterly presented the World’s Worst Wonk’d. The “D.C. celebrity sightings” consisted of George Will buying another fucking book at Borders, and a fireman who had once been on local teevee. We demanded that you people get it together, and you got it together! Huzzah for Wonkette Operatives! This week, Fred Thompson, Robert Mueller, Tom Ridge, Juan Williams, Marion Barry, Ben Bernanke, Ken Mehlman, Robert Novak, Dana Milbank, Mark Warner, and David Frum were all spotted being various degrees of famous at various places by our spies and operatives. The most voyeuristic fun ever in Wonkette’s Five Long Years of History, after the jump. Read more on World’s Greatest Wonk’d: Bernanke, Novak, Ridge, Thompson, America’s Mayor & Many More!…

Wonk’d: Rudy Will Sign Buttcheeks If You Just Ask Nicely

This week Rudy Giuliani proves there’s nothing more American than baseball and S&M while Valerie Plame and Kiefer Sutherland blow their covers, and Tucker Carlson just blows.

It’s a fey and foppish week in Wonk’d with John Kerry eating organic, Pat Buchanan feeling ladylike, Dennis Kucinich running down the dream, Christopher Hitchens, uh, drinking, and wittle Kenny Mehlman walking off his lunch.

Revealed: RNC Talking Points!

These aren’t exactly a secret, as they’ve been repeated on the political talk shows and cable news for a whole week now, but it’s nice to see everybody following orders so well. Learn why the election had nothing to do with corrupt mistress-strangling page-humping Republicans and everything to do with the ongoing success of the GOP, after the jump.

God Still Hates Katherine Harris

We were momentarily intrigued by this ridiculous scenario suggested by a Wonkette op: If Ken Mehlman (as CNN reports) is being replaced by Mel Martinez, does that mean Charlie Crist will appoint Katherine Harris to fill his Senate seat? Too good to be true? Tragically, it’s too good to be true. We’ve just learned that Martinez will bring the Republican Party back to the 14th Century while simultaneously serving Florida as a corrupt bat-shit-crazy senator.

RNC Experiments With Heterosexual Chairman

Mel Martinez will be the new chair of the Republican National Committee, according to the teevee. This is great news for social conservatives tired of worshiping a political party completely run by the homosexuals. Martinez is as anti-gay as they get without actually being gay. He does employ all kinds of gay staffers, but that’s pretty much the only way you have staffers at all. Read more on RNC Experiments With Heterosexual Chairman…
 

Wonkette’s Week in Review: So, That Happened

* It was a whole week of amazing 2006 Midterm Election madness, starting with a “I’ll choke your wife if you choke mine” deal between Congressmen McChokey and McSmacky. * George Allen spent about 72 hours above the pop singer Madonna, in a ranking of influential American Jews. * Completely unsurprising election day clusterfucks. * Voters realize at the last second that terrorism is scary, but still care more about having their money stolen and the troops in Iraq. * GOP pollster makes predictions — half right, half wrong, but still loses job. * We spent election night at CNN’s blog slumber party. Exciting as that sounds, all we could do was keep asking ourselves the same question over and over. * Oh yeah, those fake predictions we made, were on the money. * Other highlights from our insane all-night election coverage, including a dispatch from Jim Webb’s never ending victory party. * Of course, the party did eventually end — for George Allen … Macacaship Down! * Not 12 hours after we collapsed on our desks, Rumsfeld was out, Robert Gates was in, and the 2008 Presidential race had started. * The goodbyes are the hardest part: Godspeed George and Conrad and Mehlman.

MEHLMAN OUT, CNN REPORTS

Barely a day after they outed him, CNN now reports that RNC head Ken Mehlman, exhausted, will out himself… as head of the RNC. (You see what we did there?) Two sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Mehlman has made clear to close associates for some time he was likely to leave after the 2006 elections — and that there is no dissatisfaction with his performance in the midterm cycle.

Asshole Outs Asshole, CNN Half-Assedly Censors

Last night, we brought you the thrilling news that Bill Maher “outed” RNC chair Ken Mehlman. On Larry King Live, of all places. CNN apparently caught what Larry missed (“you don’t go to the same bathhouses I do”), but only in time to severely edit the West Coast feed.

Larry King Live: Bill Maher ‘Outs’ Ken Mehlman

Wonk’d: Predictable City, You Have So Many Fools to Pity

Exploiting inter-personal power dynamics to one’s advantage is what Washington is all about — Neil Bush knows it and has mastered the art. And while John Negroponte takes it one day at a time, Mark Warner and John King get bossed around by their kids. These, plus Ken Mehlman on his downward spiral, using Google Earth to find Barbara Bush, and avoiding the notorious Evan Bayh stink-palm, behind the curtain.

Blogger Bugs Ken Mehlman, Fails to Get Digits

Confronting GOP bigwig (but total unknown outside of DC) Ken Mehlman about his rumored homosexuality is soooo 2003. So for kicks, Blog activist Mike Rogers is seeking a partnership with James fucking Dobson in order to help make “the left” look just as craven and duplicitous as Ken and his compatriots paint them.

Wonk’d: If a Playful Moment Turns Into the Right Moment, You’ll Be Ready

We were going to write a scathing intro about the importance of Wonk’d and our deep sadness at the paltry sightings we’ve been getting lately, until someone sent a nice juicy George Bush tip this morning. So there’s that, plus a haggard Ken Mehlman, an indiscreet Harriet Miers, a myopic (in more ways than one) Tom Friedman, Mr. Mayor-for-Life, and your favorite “member” of Congress, below the fold.
