If everything is bigger in Texas, then we can’t wait to attend a big ol’ Texas-sized Gay Wedding. And pretty soon that could happen, per the NYT: A federal judge in Texas struck down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage on Wednesday, ruling that the laws restricting marriage to a man and a woman violated […]

Ever since the GOP lost 183% of the non-penis vote in 2012, we have been pleasantly surprised at the abrupt turnaround of the Republican Party. Who would have imagined a pro-choice GOP that fights tooth and nail for equal pay for women! But for every two steps forward, there is the inevitable step backwards, this […]

Thanks to a 9th-grade teacher in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, America now has its Official Stupidest Meme for the 2013 holiday season. Megyn Kelly’s teevee contribution to the idiocy was certainly the first and loudest, but an unnamed teacher at Cleveland High School gave “Don’t you know Santa Claus is white?” its definitive real-world test […]

We’ll just warn you up front: Please clear the room of breakables before reading — this is one of those stories where you’re going to want to throw things. Following a January traffic stop, Sheriff’s deputies, police officers, and hospital personnel in Deming, New Mexico all joined together to (ALLEGEDLY) inflict what became an hours-long […]

Welcome to a special Labor Day edition of picked-up pieces, a baggy collection of stories that were too stoopid to ignore altogether, but that we couldn’t quite manage a full post on. Or just didn’t wanna. At the top of the list, Tucker Carlson snoozing on the set of Fox & Friends, because there’s really […]

We are really really sorry Albuquerque that we did not stop in and buy you beers. HOWEVER. Skipping you in favor of Santa Fe seems to have been the correct choice. Did you know everyone there is beautiful? Are YOU beautiful? Then perhaps you should shut your whineholes. (Speaking of whineholes, the nipples above belong […]

See those nice young ladies? They were performing at some biker bar what we went at after we got tired of line dancing with Olds at Handlebar J’s in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Miss Lisa Wines got all of one picture before a goon smashed her camera and yelled NO PITCHERS or whatever. What will happen […]

Hey there, Wonkezonans and New Wonkicans! The 2013 Wonk Your Brains Out Midwest Southwest Orgy And World Tour kicks things off in Scottsdale, Arizona tonight! There will be line dancing, and perhaps later, dancing lines of blurred vision! Meet Yr Editrix and travel pal Lisa Wines for fun & frolix! Ask Rebecca what kind of […]

Well, here is a terrible story out of New Mexico that is about as funny as a feminist: A 59-year-old man jailed (BUT NEVER PROSECUTED OR CONVICTED) for alleged DUI was dumped into solitary confinement to keep him away from other prisoners due to his history of mental illness — and left there for almost […]

Ladies, ladies, stop your hysterical caterwauling in that shrill way you do that you do! It is okay that a Republican lawmaker in New Mexico has introduced you to carry your Rape Baby to term “to use the fetus as evidence” (carrying a sentence of up to three years!) in your raper’s trial! It is […]

After hearing ad nauseam about how Dumbocrats were totally going to ACORN it up this year — and Pundit Press, among others, thinks they totally did — it seems the only three people who actually tried to in-person vote fraud this year were Republicans. So weird! One was a sad idiot lady in sad, idiot […]

Who’s got two thumbs and voted yesterday? THIS GUY. Ohio allows early voting (sort of maybe if the Secretary of State allows it?) thirty-five days before the election. Because I am a shameless political hack, I knew exactly who I was voting for when the 2012 presidential race began in 2009. (Mitt Romney, obviously.) I […]

Today is Wonkette Manifest Destiny history day! Well, there was this General Custer once who got himself and all his men killed after killing a ton of Indians himself. New Mexico GOP lobbyist and prominent local RNC official Pat Rogers remembers this well. It sears his every moment of consciousness. And he is absolutely furious […]

In an upside-down world where girls want to marry girls and Christians are suddenly not allowed to be jerks about it, Elaine Huguenin is a crusader. She’s a wedding photographer from New Mexico who’s been fighting discrimination charges since 2008 over an incident in which a gay couple tried to hire her for their commitment […]

Sergeant Mike Eiskant, a Santa Fe police officer, was caught utilizing his inch high private eye while on duty. Luckily for him, he will be able to put it behind him once the video stops going viral. Officer Eiskant is a private man, which is why he chose a marked police car with a dash […]
