There is a bit of girl-on-girl violence going on at the moment, and it has nothing to do with Mitch McConnell and his Tea Bag friend. But who is instigating this Mean Girl parade? Oh, it is Maureen Dowd, imagine that. And why should she go to Journalism Jail today? Just for being, generally, the […]

Surely you Wonketteers have heard the librul media and members of Congress crowing about the new student loan bill, which is apparently not only a great deal for students but is also significant because it demonstrates that Congress is capable of passing something on a bipartisan basis. Everybody wins: Congress looks good! The new bill […]

After years of trying to hide his commie pinko inclinations with aggressive free market policies and inclinations towards a deregulatory economic landscape, President Obama is FINALLY letting his socialist freak flag fly–and he’s doing it in PUBLIC, no less, where he has been talking about income inequality and its effect on America’s social fabric. Did […]

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 […]

Perhaps you heard there was a small ‘fuffle last night as some Texas Bad-Ass got all shrill and PMSy for ALL THE HOURS last night, foiling the GOP’s efforts to steal a vote right in front of the whole universe. WELL! The Paper of Record heard about it too! And they had quite a nice […]

Some years ago, we saw a film that made us want to murder all the people. It was called “In the Family,” and it was about a young lady who has the BRCA gene that killed all her grandmothers and all her mothers and all her aunts with lady cancer. In this film, the young […]

Wonketteers are all latte-drinking Prius-driving libruls, so they are all probably avid New York Times readers who are very familiar with the Times’ ongoing series on income inequality, “The Great Divide.” But just in case! Today’s installment is a cheery essay by Joseph Stiglitz, titled “Student Debt and the Crushing of the American Dream.” Doesn’t […]

Good news, everyone! Thomas Friedman has decided to write at us again about “hyperconnectivity,” and how it will be wonderful for those of us who can dream big and work hard, isn’t that great? So great! From the New York Times: Something really big happened in the world’s wiring in the last decade, but it […]

Mark Steyn, acknowledged reigning wit of the batshit brigades (at least until the frabjous day, callooh callay, that actually hilarious Larry Miller turns the corner from “conservative” to “Michelle Malkin”), has some Thoughts on Terrorism he would like to tell at ya! And somehow those Thoughts are about abortion mills and how dumb “academia” is. […]

Everyone is mad at Politico again, just because media reporter Dylan Byers wrote a story about how Everyone Hates Jill Abramson, executive editor of the New York Times. Like, after she talks to people they break things and punch holes in the walls, that is how big an asshole she is! (Get it? It’s funny, […]

Why is Gabby Giffords bullying the US Senate, Instapundit, and, now, the entire brave staff of NRO? She is all laughing at their outfits and telling them to stop trying to make “fetch” happen. She is the meanest. She is the worst. *UPDATE! Kevin D. Williamson has now bravely signed his name to his formerly […]

Gabby Giffords is bullying the United States Senate, again. Senators say they fear the N.R.A. and the gun lobby. But I think that fear must be nothing compared to the fear the first graders in Sandy Hook Elementary School felt as their lives ended in a hail of bullets. The fear that those children who […]

The New York Times posted an op-ed online Sunday night that’s jarring not only because of its content but because of its very existence: It’s a column from a prisoner at Guantánamo Bay that explains how degrading and painful it is to be force fed while trying to hold a hunger strike to protest his […]

The New York Times Magazine gets the fascinating in-depth interviews with disgraced former Jockey model Anthony Weiner and his lovely and graceful wife, Huma Abedin. At the end of May in 2011, Clinton joined President Obama for an official trip to London, ending with a state dinner at Buckingham Palace. “And for some unbelievable reason,” […]

Did you know that ‘Merica is the most bestest country that ever lived? It’s true! We are No. 1!!!!!!1! at everything: bankrupting our peoples what don’t have health care; losing lots of monies doing war to other countries; and making single-parent families suffer extra hard because something about bootstraps and also we hate socialism. Here’s […]
