Boehner: Latest Benghazi Investigation Not Trying To Hurt Hillary, We Just Like Shouting ‘Benghazi!’

Even though the Benghazi “scandal” has been investigated approximately eleventy-nine times (seven to be specific), and even though the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee did their OWN investigation, and all seven of these investigations found absolutely no scandal, you are probably aware that the Republican House is currently investigating Benghazi for an eighth time. Why? Well obviously, dum-dum, because House Republican investigatin’ committees have a WELL KNOWN LIBERAL BIAS, and they just know that Republicans are trying to hide the facts about what REALLY happened in Benghazi, from themselves! Of course, we completely know what happened in Benghazi, except that NO WE DO NOT, let’s keep asking the same things until we get the answers we want, at which point, INPEACH!

Hero College Student Will Not Stand For College Textbook’s Mean Ronald Reagan Lies

Just in case you missed it, we have yet another tale of Liberal Extremism in Our TAXPAYER-SUPPORTED Universities. The most recent butthurt concerns the outrageous, unthinkable claim in a social work textbook that — hope you’re sitting down, folks — Ronald Reagan was not much of an advocate for women. More specifically, the furor started with one brave sophomore at the University of South Carolina, Anna Chapman, who was so outraged by passages in her Social Work textbook, Introduction to Social Work & Social Welfare: Critical Thinking Perspectives, by Karen K. Kirst-Ashman, that she just had to share them with the “liberal bias watchdog” website Campus Reform, a conservative “youth” organization from 74-year-old rightwing activist Morton Blackwell’s “Leadership Institute.” So what horrible things does the book say about Reagan?

Thursday Sad Time: Liberal-Hearted Lord Of Snark Roger Ebert Dead At 70

Roger Ebert’s voice was literally silenced by cancer in 2006 but the world was still able to experience his invaluable thoughts, and his kindness, and his true liberal-hearted warmth. He was more than just another well-read wiseass who knew how to craft a universally accessible message. For all the power that he had as America’s most notable critic, Roger Ebert was a man who deployed his well-regarded opinions through the lens of a strong and brave moral constitution. It was Ebert who more than anyone else realized the importance of Michael Moore’s narrative documentary “Roger and Me” and why a movie about the existential war on the working class needed to be seen by a country still huffing the fumes of Reaganomics. It was Ebert who understood the visual impact of his own fragile human form and used it to force Americans into understanding the moral importance of establishing healthcare as a right within our modern democracy.

Let These Chickenhawks Explain You Why Chuck Hagel/Military Service Are Irrelevant In Post-9/11 World

Are you sick of hearing about Chuck Hagel? We are sick of hearing about Chuck Hagel too, but there are so many pearls of wisdom and hidden insights in this New York Times article about him that we cannot resist sharing it with you. For example: did you know that being a war hero does not give you any credibility whatsoever, unless you happen to be speaking in favor of more war, in which case, please step up to the mike? Also, did you know that there is such a thing as “mainstream internationalism,” and that Bill Kristol is the perfect spokesperson for it?

Fox & Friends: Why Doesn’t NBC’s Hurricane Sandy Telethon Have More People Who Sneer At People Who Need Help?

Well it is obviously Media Matters Day here on your Wonket, as they are our “idiotic Fox & Friends video” go-to, and Fox & Friends is on somewhat of a tear! Now? They’re just asking! why NBC would give Barack Obama such a wet, tonguey blow job by doing … a Hurricane Sandy benefit? Is that because hurricane relief and disaster management have liberal biases? (Of course it is. And it’s obviously just Not Fair to mention a hurricane right after a hurricane happens, when Barack Obama is good at cleaning up after hurricanes, and Mitt Romney is bad at it.) But it is also because they are putting a whole bunch of rock stars on a stage, right before an election, and they are all liberals, and as Steve Doocy plaintively demanded, “HOW IS NBC GOING TO CONTROL WHAT PEOPLE SAY???” Read more on Fox & Friends: Why Doesn’t NBC’s Hurricane Sandy Telethon Have More People Who Sneer At People Who Need Help?…

Liberal Media Predictably In Tank for Liberal Candidate Mitt Romney

Ha ha, the Pew Research Center apparently paid researchers actual money to produce a study of election coverage bias when they could have just sent someone wandering down to the Kmart parking lot to ask the first person lumped atop a Hoveround with a “Sarah Palin 2016″ bumper sticker duct-taped to the back of it and gotten the same answer for free: the coven of liberal elites in the lamestream media are lately skewing positive in coverage of their beloved liberal elitist Harvard sap, Mitt Romney. In contrast, the media has taken a net overall crap on the campaign of constitutional rights-murdering Reaganite warlord Barack Obama since the start of the year. What gives?

Some Wingnut: Paragraph-Sequencing In WaPo’s Patrick Swayze Obituary [Something Something] Liberal Bias

And you thought Wonkette was having a slow news day! Well Tim Graham of the conservative Media Research Center’s porn blog, Newsbusters, has been reading most newspaper obituaries of newly dead actor Patrick Swayze, for political blog material. But it all paid off when he reached paragraph 23 of the Washington Post’s version only to find JACKPOT JACKPOT JACKPOT. “Here’s a sign the Washington Post is a liberal newspaper,” Graham begins his post.

Peggy Noonan Offers Generalized Assessment Of Various Political Things!

In last week’s installment of “Wonkette posts about Peggy Noonan’s Wall Street Journal column,” your editor Ken Layne did 100 kilos of coke and proceeded to comically insult everyone on the face of the Earth for two or seven million words. If Madam Peggington had chanced by Ken’s post, probably via that “Google Alert” on her name that her loyal butler Winston set up for her, the vulgarities would quite veritably indeed have inflamed her rheumatism! But Peggy has survived another week, another seven-day of the political news, so let us study the elegant paragraphery in today’s dramatic episode of “Declarations.” Read more on Peggy Noonan Offers Generalized Assessment Of Various Political Things!…

John McCain Complains About Media Love For Another Candidate With Gay Song Contest

Sweet criminy, did Juan McCain send out a hot e-mail this morning or what: “It’s pretty obvious that the media has a bizarre fascination with Barack Obama. Some may even say it’s a love affair. We want you to be the judge. We’ve compiled two videos of the more outrageous moments of this not so secret love affair.” Indeed, it’s very similar to the “secret love affairs” that John McCain had during his first marriage, and more recently too, and also with the media.

This Is Why They’re the Majority Party, People

Everyone once in a while — very rarely, mind you — we get jealous of our friends in the “real” media. operative: so I’ll be going to the Media Research Center DisHonor awards in a week or so wonkette: ha, wonderful. sounds like it’ll be the social event of the season operative: I plan on a three way with Hannity and Coulter operative: Joe Scarborough called the MRC’s Annual Gala “the must attend event in Washington.”…Like other awards shows, categories are presented with several nominees, but the difference is conservative personalities present the awards and accept the awards for the liberal winners. Past presenters include: Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin, Jonah Goldberg, and Neil Boortz, to name a few. A short list of past accepters includes: US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick, Sen. Zell Miller, Judge Robert Bork, Rich Lowery, Lucianne Goldberg, and William F. Buckley. Read more on This Is Why They’re the Majority Party, People…
 

Sources Have Spotted the Vice President Bitching About Poor Restaurant Service In Delray Beach

To you: a funny picture. To defenders of freedom (and Drudge), proof of liberal bias. Of course, had they checked a different* feed for pictures from the Summit on Retirement Savings (what a party that was — we’re still recovering), they would’ve turned up an even more blatant example of editorializing by wire photographers: Read more on Sources Have Spotted the Vice President Bitching About Poor Restaurant Service In Delray Beach…
