Rise Up Wonkers, Your Nation Needs You

From time to time, we here at the Glorious Wonkette, May It Live Forever, call upon you, the Wonker, to give us shit. Sometimes it is money! (It is always money.) Sometimes it is your expertise, like that time we said “How do we make a website?” and you answered! Once we were drunk and asked for an apartment. Nobody gave us one, which is very stupid.

Palace Coup: Your Editrix Is Gone; Today We Declare The Glorious People’s Blogging Collective Of Zoom

That is to say, Rebecca’s taking the day off — she muttered something about “journamalism class,” “student papers,” and “peyote and clam dip” on the way out of the Chat Cave — so she has left one of the inmates in charge of the asylum. She says she’ll be back tomorrow, but we would also note that Ferdinand Marcos thought he was just popping out for a quick snack, and then ended up in exile. Despite our dreams of declaring this Year Zero and sending everyone who doesn’t wear glasses to a re-education camp, we will reluctantly limit ourselves to the traditional duties of a fill-in editor, which include making sure pictures don’t take up your entire screen, avoiding defaming anyone who hasn’t already brought it on themselves, and selling “sponsored content” space to the Church of Scientology.

Please Enjoy This Picture of Kitties

Your Wonkette switched servers this weekend, a holiday weekend, so all kinks could be ironed out before business today. Oh wait, what’s that? Your Wonkette was supposed to switch servers this weekend, but then the programmer disappeared for two days because it was a religious holiday, and nobody could find him, but then the server-migrating guys were all, oh no problem, it will be done super early Monday morning, but then at 9 Eastern they were all “oh by super-early we mean by noon”? OK THAT IS GOOD TO KNOW. Read more on Please Enjoy This Picture of Kitties…

Join Your Wonkette This Evening For Frightening Coverage Of ‘America Votes On Politics 2010’

Your editor “Jim” here has not been able to think of anything funny or interesting to write all afternoon and apologizes for that. (Not really.) Various evil forces are destroying his stomach. So just read the POLITICO for important primary coverage tonight. Look at how excited and healthy they are about politics right now, whipping out the “___, ___, and ___, oh my!” headline construction. Dear god. Don’t read the POLITICO tonight. We’ll be back typing things in an hour or two. Two? Let’s go with “two.” Kentucky is divided into two time zones, making this scheduling infinitely more difficult. What if Rand Paul wins one half, and Trey Grayson the other? This is how “time” works. Thanks for nothing, Jeebus. Okay must lie down now.
