We don’t know much about Texas politics, and we don’t want to. But it strikes us as maybe a bit desperate of Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott to be campaigning with Ted Nugent, the terminally conservative guitar man of “Obama is a sub-human mongrel” fame, and Hillary Clinton “should ride my machine gun” fame, and […]

Looks like it’s time for another trip to the ol’ comment queue, that purgatory where comments submitted by new users must cool off until we deem them worthy of inclusion in the Wonkette Community (bribery can help). Our first missive comes from “Sam_Gavurin,” who was not at all pleased with our story about fake “War […]

We’ve seen a lot of racist nonsense in our time, but this contribution from the Daily Caller and Major General US Army Jerry Curry Retired Thank Goodness is truly special, a diamond-encrusted nuclear butt plug of are-you-even-serious-dude that makes us wonder if Jerry Curry, who served semi-prominently under Carter, Reagan, and Bush Sr., is feeling […]

Sheriff’s deputies in the Florida panhandle town of Warrington shot a 60-year-old man in the leg Saturday as he was getting a cigarette out of his mother’s car in the driveway of the home they share. A neighbor called 911 when they saw Roy Middleton getting into the car at 2:24 a.m., and the Escambia […]

Have you guys heard that new joke making the rounds? It goes like this: what’s got two thumbs and doesn’t realize that racism is over everywhere except on the Democrat plantation, so he keeps stirring up racial resentments by persecuting poor innocent white folks and suggesting he won’t let states restrict individuals’ voting rights as […]

Following Barack Obama’s speech Friday on the Trayvon Martin killing, former Florida Rep. Allen West just wanted to clarify that America doesn’t have a racism problem, it has a scary black president problem: “I am a black male who grew up in the inner city of Atlanta and no one ever followed me in a […]

George Zimmerman has been found not guilty of second degree murder in the February 26, 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin. There’s eventually going to be plenty of idiotic stuff that will be said about this by the usual people — Tucker Carlson’s Internet Dry Heave ‘n’ Dogwhistle Repository is undoubtedly writing most of Wonkette’s content […]

Oh, crap, CNN. Look, sure, we understand that the Paula Deen story and the start of the Zimmerman trial happened in the same week, and America Needs To Have This Important Conversation, and OK, we’ll even give you some credit for trying to be serious – actually, painfully earnest is more the case  – about it, but then you go […]

This week, we met E.W. Jackson, a conservative firebrand and Tea Party favorite who was nominated for Virginia’s lieutenant governorcy by virtue of the fact that the GOP skipped having a primary election this year in favor of letting their hardcore dingbats do it up convention-styley. This is like if California Democrats decided to turn […]

Andrew Breitbart may still be dead, but his legacy of demanding attention by shrieking unintelligible noises like a syphilitic howler monkey with both legs caught in a thresher lives on. And what are Raggedy Dead Andy’s legions of feral Children of the Corn shrieking about today? Benghazi? Gosnell? Solyndra? Well yes, we’re pretty sure they […]

Nobody say anything, less’n we jinx it, but a new study shows that we might in fact no longer be locking up black people at a rate six times that of their white-people counterparts! USA! USA! Oh wait no, we read it wrong. Black men are still being incarcerated at a rate of 6.4 black […]

George Will, the Washington Post’s moderately somnolent Guy Who Watches Baseball And Reads Thesauruses, has decided that the story of Frank Robinson is the perfect one to explain the presidential election. Obama’s administration is in shambles, yet he is prospering politically. This may not, however, entirely be evidence of the irrationality of the electorate. Something […]

After last night’s stirring RNC tribute to small business people who did not receive any help from the government except for government loans and grants and a taxpayer-funded stage to pimp their businesses, it is difficult to be more inspired than we already are. But here is a positive, hopeful story that will put a […]

Victor Davis Hanson writes for the National Review, which has fired like a billion racists this year. You would think, therefore, that when writing on issues of race, the National Review would show caution and some semblance of restraint when talking about it. You would also be a goddamn idiot.

Our old pal John “Salad Days” Derbyshire no longer has a job at National Review after writing one measly most racist column in Internet history, on a paleoconservative fringe site. (Your author wrote a whole bunch of words about this for the Salon website instead of on Your Wonkette, because he is a traitor.) Indeed, […]
