  When In Doubt Say You're The Real Victim

Nice Christian Fornicator ‘Blackmailed’ Into Spreading Fake Gay Sex Scandal

We are through the rabbit's looking glass, people!
You HAD to know, given that the two state legislators in this stupid Michigan sex scandal are rightwing teabagger Christians, that things would get even weirder and dumber. Friday, we told you how state Rep. Todd Courser came up with a Most Cunning Plan to cover up his affair with state Rep. Cindy Gamrat: He’d have an aide email the media a fake accusation that he was paying for gay hookers and addicted to porn, so that when the truth about his adulterous-but-hetero-affair with Gamrat came out, it would seem mild by comparison. Genius! And now, here’s another shoe: Courser claims the only reason he made up that gay sex story was that he was being blackmailed, and he was going to use the fraudulent story to flush out the blackmailer. That’s the ticket!

Hero Michigan Legislator Will Save Baby Jesus From Satan, Stuffed Snake

That's pretty festive
In Lansing, Michigan, pearls were clutched and couches were fainted upon when the First Amendment performance artists at the Satanic Temple announced they’d be setting up a holiday display at the Capitol building. As usual, the Satanic Temple folks submitted their application for a display after another group announced plans for a nativity scene. But the first group’s nativity plans fell through, which would have left only the Satanic Temple’s display, an offense against everything that America stands for, according to state Sen. Rick Jones, who took to Facebook to announce that this Satanic Non-Christmas will not stand, man. In a message that has now been replaced by an update, Jones christsplained: Read more on Hero Michigan Legislator Will Save Baby Jesus From Satan, Stuffed Snake…

Steven Crowder Tent-Gate: 12/11 Was An Inside Job

Remember that awesome video of stereotypical union thug cold wailing on stereotypical Fox News douche Steven Crowder at the Michigan anti-“Right to Work” rally this week? Of course you do, it’s embedded above. Probably you watched it and were like: “I shouldn’t be laughing at this because I’m a hippy Wonketteer librul who knows violence solves nothing, but DAMN! Dude dropped Crowder like Tyson dropped Spinks.” Read more on Steven Crowder Tent-Gate: 12/11 Was An Inside Job…

Never Forget! Union Thugs Push Down Koch Brothers Tent, Punch Steven Crowder In Face

Like the mighty towers of the World Trade Center, a tent belonging to the Michigan chapter of Americans for Prosperity fell in Lansing today because it was attacked by terrorists who hate our freedom…to not pay union dues but still receive the protection organized labor provides workers. Labor protesters, angry about Michigan’s passage of a Right to Work law, destroyed AFP’s tent thing today. Or maybe that’s what THEY want you to think! Maybe AFP wrecked their own tent to make labor protesters look bad on Drudge Report. Was 12/11 an inside job? Read more on Never Forget!

Michigan Misogyny: Not Just For Republicans Any More!

If you watch Ed Schultz’s GET OFF MY LAWN hour for liberals, then you’ve probably heard of Virg Bernero, Lansing’s shout-tastic Mayor. Bernero was also the Democrats’ embarrassingly bad Michigan gubernatorial candidate in 2010. And he might be a sexist and a homophobe who thinks his female political opponents are really men wearing lady clothes! City Councilwoman Jody Washington (a labor-backed Democrat like Bernero) says Mr. Anger Bear Mayor called her a man in drag—specifically a man named Eric Hewitt, who used to be on City Council.

A Children’s Treasury Of Impolite-For-Mixed-Company Signs From Michigan’s Vagina Fest

Your Wonkette did not go to the Vagina Monologues fun time at the Michigan State Capitol because Lansing is a long drive. Also, with that many women gathered in one place, you’re liable to attract bears. Fortunately, there were no bear attacks Monday and even more fortunately intrepid gay Todd Heywood braved this sea of vaginally endowed activists for local LGBT newspaper Between The Lines. Heywood (a fantastic journalist who’s done some incredible work on public health policy) and his employer were kind enough to share these pictures from an event Larry Craig might describe as “icky.” Read more on A Children’s Treasury Of Impolite-For-Mixed-Company Signs From Michigan’s Vagina Fest…
