What is it about Drugs-N-Gators? What compels so many people with drugs to also have a member of Alligator mississipiensis on hand? Is it because gators are tough? Or useful in protecting one’s stash, as in the classic example of the drug gator genre? Or are there just more people with drugs and people with […]

Welcome to another edition of Derp Roundup, the weekly feature where we take a good stiff metaphorical cleaning tool to our browser tabs, collect the stories that are too stupid to ignore altogether but not enough to deserve a full post, and serve them up to you in a metaphorical beverage that we urge you […]

Welcome to another edition of Derp Roundup, the weekly feature where we take a wire brush to our open browser tabs and bring you the stories that are too stoopid to ignore, but not quite worth a full post on their own. We recommend washing it all down with a big swig of the reality-diluter […]

Well, it pretty much stands to reason that if Ted Nugent is Rosa Parks and the sacred fight against all gun control is the new civil rights movement, then the Multnomah Republican Party should celebrate Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln by raffling off an AR-15 rifle (or a handgun of the winner’s choice) at […]

We didn’t think that any story could possibly top the November 2012 headline from Scott Lake, Washington: Two Alligators, A Pole Dancer And Pot At Olympia Area Shooting Scene. And yet we knew it was at least theoretically possible, however unlikely. And now, dear readers, we may finally have a winner — we’ll let you […]

Exactly how big an asshole do you need to be to care who eats your five-tiered sponge-flavored diabetes-frosted wedding cake? This big: [T]he Oregon Family Council has filed its own initiative that would allow for discrimination against same-sex couples even if marriage equality passes. The proposed Protect Religious Freedom Initiative would create a “right to […]

The hippies running the Oregon Health Plan have enrolled 56,000 new people under the state’s expansion of Medicaid, even before the state’s insurance exchange — which has been delayed by technical glitches – is up and running. Is it a much-sought-after Obamacare success story? The low-income program has cut the number of uninsured Oregon residents […]

There are some days when Yr Wonkette is very glad that we do not allow comments. Because if we did, we might find ourselves with bucketloads of comments like these, from “Livefree601″ on the topic of Bristol Palin, teen mom and Planned-Parenthood Dismantler: She’s literally the most amazing and strongest woman out there. Who else […]

Butthurt Alert/Drudge Sirens! A number of rightwing sites are outraged, Outraged! at this “acid trip Obamacare ad” that “costs taxpayers $3.2 million” — a figure that appears to include not only the production costs, but also the cost of buying ad time and other PSA’s, not that the angerbears at Americans for Tax Reform bother […]

You know what’s bringing this country down? Not big money in politics, not gerrymandering Congressional districts to create 832 safe seats, and not even bakeries shutting down because they can’t be bigots. No, those are all peripheral issues — the real problem in America is the poors. Seriously, it’s sickening how poor people are just […]

The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 Tuesday to secede from California and to form a new state that would be called “Jefferson.” This is totally a thing that is going to happen, just like “Northern Colorado,” because Freedom and also tyrannical liberal elites in Sacramento and SoCal, and once they get some other […]

It’s a bad day for bigots out there today. We are having a super-duper SAD because Sweet Cakes by Melissa is closing its doors, according to KOIN.com. You don’t remember them? They are one of the bakeries that is being persecuted because they didn’t want to make wedding cakes for fags, lesbos, queers, and other […]

A Vietnam war memorial in a park in Coos Bay, Oregon, was the target of a small explosion last Thursday; while police have not made any arrests or identified any suspects, the forensic scientists at Gateway Pundit have decided that the bombing was the work of an “Atheist Group.” Guest blogger* Mara Zebest presents her […]

In a big image boost for the “sport” of cockfighting, the arrest of a Romanian princess in Eastern Oregon now gives lovers of the blood sport the opportunity to call their brutal pastime the sport of kings. (Then again, they already could, since Iowa congressdouche Steve King just loves him some animal cruelty, too.) We […]

Oregon van owner Leonard Burdek is a passionate man! For example, he loves his mother tongue so much that he will defend its honor no matter the cost, which in this case was the price of a pressure cooker, maybe some wires, and whatever they do to you in Salem, Oregon, when you’re charged with […]
