In what is being hailed as a miracle, at least in teevee news copy, God sent a special message to a restaurant employee in the form of His name, in English, spelled out in the seeds of an eggplant. Here’s the breathless news of the miraculous apparition at Gino’s Restaurant in Baton Rouge: Chef Jermarcus […]

This nice lady is Sarah Palin wannabe and Louisiana state Rep. Lenar Whitney, who would like to bring her special brand of smarts to the U.S. Congress. She has an exciting video in which she explains that Global Warming is not real, because Al Gore, who made the whole thing up himself, is a big […]

Mark this one as “huge surprise to nobody”: Louisiana congressdouche Vance McAllister, the Jesus-humpin’ family-values fella who was caught on video K-I-S-S-I-N-G an office aide who was also his best friend’s wife, has announced that he will not be seeking re-election, but won’t be stepping down, either. He and his wife Kelly apparently came to […]

Nice try, but no cigar, lovers of science in the Pelican State. For the fourth time since the Doublespeaky “Louisiana Science Education Act” (LSEA) was passed in 2008, an attempt to repeal the law has been shot down, by a 3-1 vote in the Senate Education Committee. This means that teachers in the Great State […]

Here’s some very measured, very partial Nice Time for you nice people! The National Rifle Association, according to a piece by Laura Bassett and Christina Wilkie at the Huffington Post, is quietly backing away from one part of its “never restrict guns ever anywhere for any reason” agenda, and has actually dropped its objections to […]

Tuesday was a great day for supporters of decency and good clean living in Louisiana, as the state House of Representatives rejected a bid to formally repeal the state’s unconstitutional anti-sodomy law. Oh, sure, they all know the law is unconstitutional, but that’s no reason not to keep it on the books, because it sends […]

Welcome to another edition of Derp Roundup, the weekly feature where we bring you a bunch of stories that didn’t quite merit a post of their own, but that were far too stupid to ignore altogether. Apply alcohol directly to your central processing unit as needed. Or your computer’s. For the second week in a […]

(Updated! See end of post) We all had a good laugh the other day over the trials and travails of the Kissing Congressman, Rep. Vance McAllister (R-Tonsil Hockey), and his sorry-not-sorry apology to his constituents, his wife, his kids, God, social decency, Saints fans, the endangered Louisiana wetlands and who knows who else over his […]

Here at Yr Wonkette, we are proud to bring you all the Vance McAllister news you can possibly stomach, which we figure is probably about 600 words and change. McAllister, as you are no doubt aware, is the nice Family Values Christian guy who won Louisiana’s 5th district in a special election last November, then […]

(Update: See end of post) Wonketteers, we think that maybe we are getting a tad jaded in our olde age (let’s say we’re about 37). We are no longer especially surprised to hear that a Republican politician who ran as a “family values” advocate has been caught in some extramarital canoodling; just about the only […]

Let’s all take a moment to applaud today’s Hero of Limited Government, Louisiana state Sen. Elbert Lee Guillory, who objected Tuesday that a new bill to ban cockfighting is overly broad, because it would infringe on the rights of the completely legitimate sport of “chicken boxing,” which is a totally real thing and not at […]

This post brought to you by the Patty Dumpling Endowed Blogging Chair For Oil Spill Clusterfucks. It’s been a quarter-century since the oil tanker Exxon ValdezĀ spilled 11 million gallons of oil in the formerly known as pristine Prince William Sound, and here we are today still burning the earth’s toxic runny shits and farts for […]

Remember that mean teacher in Louisiana who told one of her kids he was “stupid” for being a Buddhist? And remember how his parents sued and the ACLU was all, “Hey, mean lady, you can’t go around saying stuff like that in the public schools,” and her parish school superintendent was all, “Yeah, huh, she […]

If it’s a day that ends in “y,” (and it is, we checked the Google), then it’s a safe bet that someone somewhere is trying to shove their limited-government legislation right up your vagina to protect you from yourself. For “life” and “freedom” and “babies” and “safety” and “stuff.” This is not news; in fact, […]

Virginia is now really, truly for lovers. And not just the boring penis-in-vagina kind of lovers, but now you can put your naughty bits in whatever orifice you would like, even in the butt! Per WaPo: More than a decade after the Supreme Court declared such bans unconstitutional, Virginia lawmakers have taken a ban on […]
