Sean Hannity Will Repeal And Replace John Boehner, Just For Funsies

This is his clever face
Some people might be glad Congress decided to switch things up a bit and actually do some work on Thursday night to keep the government open and functioning. (Yes, we know what “functioning” means, and yes, we’re using that term loosely.) Read more on Sean Hannity Will Repeal And Replace John Boehner, Just For Funsies…

National Review Burnishes ‘Serious Journalism’ Rep By Hiring Disgraced Plagiarist Benny Johnson

A Doktor Zoom original
If you were concerned that hack plagiarist Benny Johnson, Buzzfeed’s former viral politics editor and laughing stock of the internet — which he loves :) — would disappear into oblivion and fade from our memories, pinch your collective selves and quit your daydreaming because it turns out that there is still one cockroach-infested corner of the internet that thinks Benny would make a fine addition to its staff, and it is National Review!

Guy Who Convinced McCain To Pick Sarah Palin Thinks Barack Obama Is ‘Callow’

Rich Lowry, everybody. Famous for getting “starbursts” at the sight of Sarah Palin’s lizard lips, and for running away like Rand Paul from a fight with known-bruiser Al Franken. Now? He has penned a magnificent 347 words in Politico Magazine, charging one B. Barry Bamz with the high crime and misdemeanor of saying the words “stop just hatin’ all the time.” Read more on Guy Who Convinced McCain To Pick Sarah Palin Thinks Barack Obama Is ‘Callow’…

Rich Lowry: When Will This Welfare Queen ‘Julia’ Get Off Head Start And Pell Grants?

Rich Lowry simply does not care for the Obama campaign’s fictional “Julia.” Julia begins her interaction with the welfare state as a little tot through the pre-kindergarten program Head Start. She then proceeds through all of life’s important phases, not Shakespeare’s progression from “mewling and puking” infant to “second childishness and mere oblivion,” but the Health and Human Services and Education Department version: a Pell grant (age 18), surgery on insurance coverage guaranteed by Obamacare (22), a job where she can sue her employers for more pay thanks to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act (23), free contraception (27), a Small Business Administration loan (42) and, finally, Medicare (65) and Social Security (67). (In a sci-fi touch, these entitlements are presumed blissfully unchanged sometime off in the 2070s.) She can sue her employers for more pay, or get a Small Business Administration loan? THAT IS EVEN WORSE THAN FREE CONTRACEPTION! Christ, Julia, when will you stop being such a giant whore?

Another Racist Out At National Review Because It Is A Day Ending In ‘Y’ (VIDEO)

There is a thing called American Renaissance, and it is not very nice. And there is a man named Robert Weissberg who liked to go to their meetings and discuss “how Jews feel about the schwarzes” and “the future of white nationalism” and who wrote for National Review until … oh, right about last night, when poor Rich Lowry murdered him from the Internet. It is hard to be Rich Lowry lately; all those racists that had moved in and taken over, completely without his knowledge!

Rich Lowry and the Taliban Not Buying This Obama Peace Prize Bullshit

Direct from National Review illiterate Rich Lowry’s Urdu Twitter feed, here is the Al Jazeera video montage of a bunch of Raiders of the Lost Ark extras calling for the death of America, the land of the Black Pharaoh.

  no not these

“A MUST-READ ORGAN OF CONSERVATIVE OPINION”: this is how The Corner’s #1 accurate describer of things Rich Lowry characterizes Sarah Palin’s Facebook page, with those words right over there. The ones in caps. No, no, in black. The bold ones right above right here. There are like seven of them? Just keeping looking until you find them. [The Corner via Ben Smith] Read more on …

Douchey No Name Bush Speechwriter “Matt Latimer” Puts The Corner In A Corner!

Rich Lowry vs. Matt Latimer, this is so on! The ONE TIME Rich Lowry goes to work and puts on his bowler hat and three piece suit and pretends to be a newspaper-man, Matt Latimer, former Bush speechwriter/social chair of Mars’ douchiest fraternity, refuses to answer any of Lowry’s broadsheet journalism media questions! “Matt Latimer, isn’t the fact that you’re in a pederastic relationship with Donald Rumsfeld—and the fact that you’re currently helping him write his own memoir—call into question your favorable characterization of said human?” Lowry asked within the pages of his forgotten reactionary quarto, “Corner.” Now watch Matt Latimer defer to a mid-range Roomba named “Kevin Kellems.” Read more on Douchey No Name Bush Speechwriter “Matt Latimer” Puts The Corner In A Corner!…

Do Not Miss Out On Jonah Goldberg’s Heavy Breathing Telethon TONIGHT

National Review is so fucking weird, Jesus Christ. Here’s their new thing, “National Review Calls Home,” which is like a giant hideous conference call between Jonah Goldberg and rented auxiliary humans Rich Lowry and Mark Steyn—and of course all the National Review subscribers, whom Jonah Goldberg will personally be calling from some sticky-buttoned corded phone somewhere. “During the call Rich, Jonah, and Mark will discuss the hottest issues of the day. You’ll get the opportunity to ask questions, answer surveys, or you can just sit back and enjoy hearing these great pundits and observers make sense of the current political scene.” Jonah Goldberg will actually illegally stalk his readers until they sign up for his fake open-source wingnut radio.

The Corner! The Corner Knows Why Obama Hasn’t Declared War On Iran Yet

Very smart ex-prosecutor person Andrew C. “Andy” McCarthy knows most things about Barack Obama, including all of his secrets. McCarthy’s top achievement in life has been proving that Bill Ayers ghostwrote Obama’s memoir Dreams Of My Father. Not many people knew about this, and it was a journalistic scoop, and so is this: “The fact is that, as a man of the hard Left, Obama is more comfortable with a totalitarian Islamic regime than he would be with a free Iranian society.” That’s the fact, okay?

K-LO, ONLINE COMEDY INSTITUTION, TO STEP DOWN

BIG NEWS 2DAY, from Kathryn Jean “Jonah Goldberg” Lopez: “I will soon be stepping aside as editor of National Review Online. I’m not going too far. I’ll still be contributing to NRO with ideas and content, and if you are an author or reader you might not notice much of a change. I’ll probably still be bugging you for pieces if you’re an author and I’ll still be traffic-copping the Corner. But I will be moving my primary base of operation in the fall from New York to D.C., and will no longer honcho NRO on a day-by-day basis.” Oh, we will notice the shit out of this. Starburst will replace her. [National Review] Read more on K-LO, ONLINE COMEDY INSTITUTION, TO STEP DOWN…

Conservative Pundit Describes Boner He Got Watching Palin

There was nothing good about Sarah Palin’s debate performance last night, at all. But! Some party hacks are pretending to like it, or say she won, because of how well she avoided saying anything of substance. The “buzz word” regarding the key to her success (among no one) is that she spoke in very “folksy” tones, and they appeal to the Heartland. For the first time ever, our punditry is being lazy! “Folksy” is more of an Ann Richards thing. What Sarah Palin did was called “flirting.” And so far, at least one pundit on National Review‘s The Corner blog has disclosed how much of a boner he got, in potentially the greatest Corner post of all time.

Wonkette Party Crash: CEI Awards, Part Two

As we previously mentioned, last night Team Wonkette attended the annual CEI Dinner. We’ve already given you some great photos from the event. Now we provide you with this more detailed write-up of the proceedings, as promised. All in all, it was an excellent evening. P.J. O’Rourke was in funny, fine form. The liquor flowed liberally, and the after-party featured free cigars and cigarettes (plus scrumptious chocolate eclairs). And did we mention the dancing libertarians? What more can one ask for? Our full take on the evening, including more excellent pictures by Liz Gorman, appears after the jump. Read more on Wonkette Party Crash: CEI Awards, Part Two…
