Rancid beef jerky stick Darrell Issa has allegedly been in a snit over the new House Select Committee to investigate BENGHAAAAZI!!!11!!! because it bigfoots the investigations he has been chairing as head of the House Oversight Committee. Not that he doesn’t want to get to the bottom of the worst dereliction of duty since the […]

A terrible thing happened yesterday at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, and at this point, we don’t know much about the murderer, Ivan Lopez, except that he was an Iraq vet, was being treated for depression and anxiety, and was being evaluated for possible PTSD.  Those very limited details became available a few hours after […]

Recently, Media Research Center, the low-rent conservative version of Media Matters, did a survey in order to get feedback on their greatness, and we were in awe of the survey, becaues there was simply no way to not celebrate the greatness of Media Research Center.

NRA board member and bozo birthday boy Ted Nugent, who is still neither dead nor in jail, marked the one-year anniversary of the Newtown Massacre with a WND column blaming the shootings on “political correctness” and warning that unless we arm teachers, eliminate gun-free zones, and do something about mentally ill people — as individuals, […]

Do you know Reddit? It is this thing. It is a glorious place of Internet freedom where users (“Redditors”) post stories they have found from other places, and then other users (“Redditors”) vote up and down on whether it is “hot” or “not.” In that regard, it is much like our own Wonkville, where we […]

We weren’t planning to do anything on Ariel Castro’s suicide, because really, “horrible person kills self” is just not brimming with comedic possibilities. And then along comes Eric Bolling on Fox’s The Five with this brilliant observation: hey, by committing suicide, Castro saved the Ohio prison system a whole bunch of money, so let’s look […]

Well this will be fun! Noodle-brained jackanape Ben Shapiro is teaming up with crankypants David Horowitz to launch something called TruthRevolt.org, described as “the conservative counterpunch to Media Matters.” To which yr Wonkette can only say: THANK YOU! We are going to have so much fun wading through what is sure to be yet one […]

The lack of internet access on planes used to provide people a bit of a forced break from being constantly connected to the miasma of awful penetrating our daily lives. However since Wifi access became a more or less standard feature on long flights, many people have decided to take advantage of this contained period […]

Here is another video of Bill O’Reilly not making a hell of a lot of sense. Follow this logic: He starts by saying that Barack Obama “has been somewhat successful in demonizing Republicans,” a point which he illustrates with a clip of Bobby Jindal saying the GOP needs to “stop being the stupid party” and […]

Help, help, Fox News is bein’ repressed. Fox’s token liberal Kirsten Powers has composed a magnificent cri de butthurt about President Obama’s relentless campaign to destroy “the one television news outlet in America that won’t fall in line and treat him as emperor.” And she argues that if anyone should care about this massive assault […]

Were any of you as surprised as we were when Dick Armey decided to dish about all the crimes going on at his “grassroots” Tea Party group to the most sinister far-left outlet on the planet, Media Matters, last week? It was awesome; he explained how the “grassroots” Tea Party group FreedomWorks, before it paid […]

Yesterday, Media Matters had a very enjoyable little item in which they caught Steve and Gretchen and probably the rapey one just cold comparing apples to steaming piles of elephant shit, as regards the growth in unemployment under President B. Bamz. In fact — you will be just shocked to learn — “real” unemployment had […]

OMG you guys, what was it like to wake up on Thursday and have less liberty? Did you know right away, or were you in so much shock that it took awhile to hit you? Because these are the kinds of questions your grandkids will ask about the Day That Justice Roberts Took Freedom Away, […]

Is Jonah Goldberg bellyaching about something today? Well, it is a “day,” so indeed he is! Currently he is incredibly upset that those hysterical Obama-lovers at Media Matters didn’t bother to ask him his opinion about young people, even though he already gave these opinions to the Daily Caller when he said that young people are […]

George W. Bush wasn’t doing much of anything in 2008, having pretty much checked himself out of “administrative duties” sometime in late 2006. One of the things Bush was definitely not doing as he rode out his term was bringing down the cost of gas! And the Fox News of 2008 rushed to defend his […]
