The Daily Show Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook Looks like the lamestream media is on another witch hunt for decent non-racist politicians. It’s so sad how all this Political Correctness is oppressing people and keeping them from speaking freely, just because some people don’t like the stuff that comes out […]

North Carolina Congressdope Renee Ellmers, who recently became a Wonket Hero for her brave stance on accepting her congressional paycheck during the shutdown — “I need my paycheck. That’s the bottom line” — has once again ascended the summit of Derp Mountain, this time in connection with an issue dear to her heart: she’s a […]

Welcome to another edition of Derp Roundup, that weekly big ball of wadded-up idiocy from our inbox that was too stoopid to ignore altogether, but that didn’t quite merit a full-length Wonket post. Up first, a quick visit to that land of fiscal restraint, North Carolina, where Gov. Pat McCrory presided over a 2013 legislative […]

Shutdown day 11! Hope you have been getting your Government Shutdown Bonus Card stamped every day, because 12 shutdown days earns you one free voter repression in the swing state of your choice! (Wonkette is going with a minority college kid in North Carolina.) Well, yesterday saw President Obama meeting with top GOP lawmakers at […]

Why, sure, Washington Post, we’d love to read a political trends think-piece! Whatcha got? Oh, Tea Partiers who were elected in 2010 are starting to see some pushback in their home districts? OK, sure, we’ll read that! Please tell us that people are getting tired of their antics, will you? For instance, maybe you could […]

(Breaking: See Schadenfreude-Filled Update at end of post) Welcome to all our Wonkettarian brothers and sisters. Our Inspirational Verse today comes from the Book of Chuck Jones and the Testament of Daffy, who sayeth, “After all, it was me or him, and obviously, it couldn’t be me. It’s a simple matter of logic. I’m not […]

Well, kids, we certainly have had fun mocking the Republicans for a series of stupid quotes about how Obamacare will rape your daughter,  or yelling at people doing their jobs, or 9/11, and we could go on and on … hell, we kinda did. And miraculously, the White House has managed to not brain-fart something […]

The U.S. Department of Justice will sue to block North Carolina’s terrible new voter suppression laws, according to the Associated Press. Attorney General Eric Holder seems to think that even after the Supreme Court threw out part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, the rest of it still remains in effect and the federal government […]

Happy Saturday, you slugabeds! As you blearily try to shake off the residue of last night’s revelries, pour yourself another cuppa joe and treat yourself to a serving of our weekly concatenation of clinking, clanking, caligenous junk from the interwebs that was too stoopid to ignore altogether but that didn’t quite merit a full-length post. […]

Here we are with another collection of stories that are too stoopid to ignore altogether but that we just couldn’t bring ourselves to waste a full-length post on. Think of it as the Arby-Q of Wonkette posts. Let’s start with the latest from longtime Wonket pal Larry Klayman, who was at it again last week […]

Just in case you good folks aren’t already filled with rage and sad this morning, how about this news from Charlotte, North Carolina? Police were responding to a 911 call about a possible breaking and entering (a woman had called saying someone was repeatedly knocking on her door), and then: Police say that when they […]

Progressive state Sen. Ellie Kinnaird resigned her seat in the North Carolina Senate Monday so that she can work on a project to register voters and help ensure that people get proper ID so they can vote despite the state’s idiotic new voter suppression laws. Can we nominate someone for Legislative Badass of the Year […]

It has been a couple of weeks since we checked in on the tattered remnants of the Voting Rights Act. How are GOP-controlled legislatures trying to snuff-film it now? First North Carolina passed new voting laws so restrictive that from the gay bordello in hell where he is spending eternity, Jesse Helms stopped fellating Satan’s […]

North Carolina legislators celebrated their victories over voting, poverty, and human decency, and they celebrated with THE DANCE! Meanwhile, everyone who wasn’t in the North Carolina Capitol celebrated by dying of back alley bortions, and starving because “poor.” [CNN]

In a cascade of cynical ratfuckery that absolutely nobody could have predicted when the SCOTUS gutted the Voting Rights Act a month ago, a bill making its way through the North Carolina Senate will impose all sorts of beautiful new restrictions on voting, because apparently North Carolina is having a buy one, get eleventy free […]
