Louie Gohmert Wins All Foreign Policy By Debunking Comedy Routine

Hiya, Wonketeers! Do you know what Vladimir Putin’s annexation of the Crimea means for the New Russian Century? We do not, we are a peen-joke blog, so we rely on experts to expertlain it to us. Whaddaya got, Maureen Dowd? Obama wears mom jeans, blah, blah Hillary 2016? No, too 2008. How about you, William Kristol? Obama wears mom jeans, so we should start a war with Russia. No, too 1853. Who can save us from our dumb? Why, the expertest expert of them all, that foreign policy genius and media critic Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Brain Damage)! Super Gohmert took to the floor of the House t’other day to break down the true significance of Russia’s land grab, which is that Sarah Palin was right all along. Uhhhhh, okay!

Okay, This Mediaite Secret Identity Guy Thing Just Got CRAZY

Back on Tuesday, we tried valiantly to explain to you how Mediaite managing editor Jon Nicosia was a pen name for one Zachary Hildreth. Far be it from us to criticize using a fake name, but generally we are not doing it to cover up our string of felonies as Hildreth was. Well, except Dok Zoom. He’s wanted in 13 or 14 states now. Hildreth wasn’t just the kind of guy who had a nom de plume to cover up that he’d been a big crimer. He was also a weird boss who pretended to be Donald Trump and made a suicide pact with his mom. These things are weird, right? Oh good lord things get so so much weirder. Read more on Okay, This Mediaite Secret Identity Guy Thing Just Got CRAZY…

Mediaite’s Managing Editor Jon Nicosia Has Fake Name And Lengthy Criminal Record But That’s Cool By Mediaite

Do you enjoy complicated stories about high-profile Internet journalists and their lying and stealing and going to prison-ing yet somehow keeping their jobs? No, this is not about Dok Zoom or me. Over the weekend, Mediaite managing editor Jon Nicosia wrote a casual column about how he is a two-time felon working under a fake name.

Thank You, Code Pink, For Stopping The Attack On Syria

Updated Update: OK, got the video working! It’s right after the jump! Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher sent us a tip with some exclusive video of a Code Pink protest across the street from the White House today while Barry Bamz met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. As is their trademark, they were not especially polite: Code Pinkers in giant Obama and Netanyahu heads pattered about mongering war, and engaged in various sexual simulations whenever they sensed a camera. Code Pink founder Madea Benjamin was also on hand to take credit for Syria’s agreement to give up its chemical weapons. Because as everyone knows, where diplomacy, moral suasion, or threats of force fail, people dancing around in big papier-mâché caricature heads usually get results.

Soledad To The Muslin Network! Greta Sniffs Around CNN! Has This New York Times Guy Been Fired Yet? Media!

Here at Wonkette, we are really making a play to be your full-service blog. We’ve become your go-to source for swears-laden posts about New Pope, haphazard legal analysis about legal decisions, and deeply ambivalent feelings about Edward Snowden. Now we’ve expanded our world domination plan to include fancypants talking about other media people so we can be insular beltway pundits when we grow up. We’re like the new Mediaite. Call us Meditate or Mediate or Mediatitus or something. Read more on Soledad To The Muslin Network! Greta Sniffs Around CNN! Has This New York Times Guy Been Fired Yet? Media!…

James O’Keefe Might Possibly Have a Problem With Women

The fine people at Mediaite have an excellent ‘splainer braiding together the threads of onetime James O’Keefe comrade Nadia Naffe, her harassment complaint against him, the “night in the barn,” her upcoming tell-all, and other assorted completely unhilarious doings. They are better men than your editrix, who can barely read Naffe’s original harassment complaint without a long pull of Pepto and a Silkwood shower.
