Chris Christie Throws New Jersey Lady-Pigs Under 2016 Campaign Bus

Christie smash
Photo by Beth Ethier Chris Christie is a master of pre-presidential innovation. Having spent the 2014 midterm season hitting key states to campaign for Republican candidates, Christie has moved on to a bold new tactic: inviting Iowans to decide which laws are best for New Jersey where he is, at least nominally, still governor.

Tattooed Pig Urges Wonkabout To Leave DC (Goodbye Forever!)

Well hello! After two years of eating and drinking her way around this city so you could know which small plates, pork, hamburger or pizza establishment is worthy of your hard-earned disposable income, it is time for your Wonkabout to leave the playground that is D.C. She is off to learn things in grad school, after which she’ll probably be unemployed, burdened by debt and unable to afford her pork habit. Wish her luck! But really, it was all fun and games until tattooing a dead pig for charity became an acceptable D.C. springtime activity … and then she knew it was time to go.

Wonkette Harasses Attorney General Eric Holder At Washington Movie Premiere

So what does mysterious morning Wonkette editor Riley Waggaman do at night? He goes to celebrity events and basically attacks the Obama Administration, in person. City Paper reports: The guest list included plenty of actors (James McAvoy, Robin Wright, Kevin Kline, Tom Wilkinson, Evan Rachel Wood) and politicians (11 senators, 10 House members, one Supreme Court justice), which drew an eclectic assortment of media. The Washington Post and the network affiliates and the likes of People and US Weekly were there; so were wire-service photographers, who probably spend most of their week in the White House briefing room. Also along the red carpet: Brightest Young Things, Wonkette, and the American University Eagle. “Do you think the tribunals were a good idea?” yelled Wonkette blogger Riley Waggaman at Attorney General Eric Holder as he passed. Holder didn’t comment. Read more on Wonkette Harasses Attorney General Eric Holder At Washington Movie Premiere…

Horrible Things That Go In Your Mouth

By the Comics CurmudgeonThe Wonkette empire was of course built on ass-fucking, but the prudes of American journalism have a problem with depicting anal sex in mainstream political cartoons. This despite the fact that it’s an act perfectly suited for modern-day politics’ crude discourse. (“Boy, that federal government sure is fucking us in the ass, with its taxes, huh? The government! It’ll fuck ya! In the ass!” ) So instead, political cartoonists have to do oral. Sometimes it’s all sublimated, and sometimes it … isn’t? See the mouth-horror, after the jump.

How Much Pork Is Too Much Pork?

Thursday, May 27: The second Sex and the City movie comes out on Thursday, which is a historic, important, life-changing event probably for no one in the Wonkette universe. But should you actually go see it — or, better yet, if you ever go to the movies in Chinatown and care to eat an elaborate meal beforehand — The Source is now offering a three-course pre-event tasting menu for $55 a person.

American Sex Pigs

By the Comics Curmudgeon Oh, the noble pig! This beast is the cleverest and friendliest of your barnyard animals — seriously, have you ever looked into the dim, soulless eyes of a cow or a chicken? — and is delicious when transformed into a whole panoply of meat products. Yet whenever it gets used in a cartoon, it denotes something bad! Why are America’s political cartoonists racist against pigs? Read more on American Sex Pigs…

And We Shall Give Ourselves Over To The Beasts

By the Comics CurmudgeonHa ha, another week gone, another week in which our economy and the posh lifestyle it has afforded us continues to circle the drain, leading us inevitably towards despair! This has of course led to much finger-pointing, recrimination, etc. Should Tim Geithner be in charge of the Treasury? Should the entire class of jackholes who ran the financial services industry for the last decade be purged? And if so, who should we replace them with? Oh, sure, you liberals will be all like “Trained government bureaucrats!” But is that really “outside the box” enough for our current predicament? What if instead we turned to the animal kingdom? They could do all the work, while we relaxed and lived like kings! Read more on And We Shall Give Ourselves Over To The Beasts…

Barry Brings Sexy Back To DC!

By the Comics CurmudgeonHey, how’s what’s-his-name doing, you know, the Muslim fellow? President Whosit? I guess there’s some sort of stimulus thingie he’s dealing with right now, and some tax-related dealies with the people he’s trying to hire? Whatever, what we really want to know is: is he sexing our nation’s capital up with all the sexy sexy sex? According to the media and its political cartoonists, the answer is a very sexy yes!

This Probably Isn’t The Eliot Spitzer/Ashley-Kristen Sex Tape

Or is it? NOTICE: You must watch to the very end. The very end. And this is all you get because Ashley’s Girls Gone Wild embarrassment will be forever sealed (until it’s leaked on the Internet this weekend) because it turns out she was only 17, the end.

Feds Approve Cloned Meat & Milk! Hooray!

Government scientists have come to the rock-solid conclusion that it’s totally safe to eat cloned meat and dairy products from cloned animals. This basically means that you can stumble upon the Perfect Steak and then get the ID number of the animal, probably through some DNA detector built into next year’s Blackberry models, and continue to eat that steak forever.

Angry Weirdos Kick Out 40% Of PA Incumbents

Some random guy in Pennsylvania decided to get rid of every single incumbent in the Pennsylvania House and Senate and actually managed to evict a total of 47 legislators through primary losses and retirements forced by voter outrage. How did Russ Diamond pull this off? He spent less than $200 to start a web-based political action committee called PA CleanSweep and recruited 97 oddballs to run on a simple anti-incumbent platform, all because the Pennsylvania politicians had given themselves a huge pay raise atop an already huge pile of benefits. Learn how four divorces, public drunkenness and your girlfriend’s abortion equal Political Success, after the jump. Read more on Angry Weirdos Kick Out 40% Of PA Incumbents…
 

Discarded Hog Head Freaks Out NJ Politician

We usually ignore news about a “former state senator,” but when it involves a severed pig’s head and there’s a picture of said severed pig’s head …. The nobody in question is Alene Ammond, and it seems the head of a roasted pig was dumped on her lawn and she lost her mind, because it was facing the house. Talk, crazy lady, talk to the teevee person who doesn’t know how to write: Read more on Discarded Hog Head Freaks Out NJ Politician…
