Sarah Palin got into a bit of a whoopsie-daisy in Wasilla, Alaska, recently: TMZ says she got caught doing 63 mph in a 45 zone, and was hit with a $154 ticket, which she’ll probably charge to her super PAC as travel expenses. Palin joked to TMZ, “I wasn’t speeding, I was qualifying,” possibly for […]

On Fox News recently, John McCain told Howard Kurtz that Jon Stewart was unfair to Republicans, but that it didn’t matter because Stewart is merely one of those lying late-night comedians: “When he says things that are absolutely wrong he gets away with it … It is what it is. I frankly have no beef […]

Having just come off his break, Jon Stewart is still catching up with some stuff that we’ve already covered, like f’rinstance Sarah Palin’s big Let’s Impeach Obama announcement from a week or so back. He handily disposes of her nutty comparison of America to “the battered wife” who finally says “No mas,” pointing out that […]

Reince Priebus tweeted out an invitation today to go “Pick who you want to be the next president,” via the RNC’s excellent new survey toy. And what a broad selection of fine candidates there is, even though no one’s announced yet, even at this late date. The choices include people who will almost definitely run […]

Turns out that Eric Holder is turning into the Obama administration’s very own Spiro Agnew. He hasn’t quite achieved Agnew’s level of verbal brutality — Hunter S. Thompson called Agnew “a flat-out, knee-crawling thug with the morals of a weasel on speed” — but for these degraded times, Holder ain’t bad. He took on Louie […]

Sarah Palin is just SO MAD at Barack Obama you guys, that she has been driven, for only the three zillionth time, to call for his impeachment because he is acting like a dictator and not telling the truth about the IRS or Fast and Furious. Or, wait, not those, this time around it’s because […]

Today is D-Day for one of the most anticipated events of the year around yr Wonkette’s newsroom, for it marks the release of Katie Pavlich’s book-like substance, Assault and Flattery: The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women.We’re so excited! Not excited enough to actually spend $25 on the goddamn thing and help […]

So here’s the feel-good story of the day: Sarah Palin thinks that maybe it would be a heck of a lot of fun to host The View, not that she’s going to do that any more than she’s going to run for President. On the occasion of her dumb third-rate cable show getting picked up […]

We stayed up late last night just to make sure we could maximize our intake of sweet Tea Party tears over Chris McDaniel losing the GOP primary to incumbent Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran. McDaniel had proved to be a reliable source of ridiculous, but even with that we will not be sorry to see him […]

Sarah Palin posted an example of rightwing comedy on her Faceplace thing Tuesday with some hilarious riffs on the absurd notion that Bowe Bergdahl has “forgotten how to speak English” — which isn’t something that anyone in Bergdahl’s family has really claimed, of course; we’ll get to that after the jump. But first, let’s enjoy […]

Sarah Palin has given a lot of thought to this scandal at the Veterans Administration, and she has determined, with some help from Sean Hannity, that the best way to describe the V.A. hospital system is with a lie that she made up in 2009. At the “Republican Leadership Conference” in New Orleans Thursday, Hannity […]

Oh em gee, you guys, the ghost thinker for Sarah Palin’s brain has informed her that she is SUPER empissened about the just discovered BREAKING news that America does not treat its veterans so good, actually. No, we are not talking about that time some uber Patriot-Americans booed an openly gay Iraq War veteran. Nor […]

Across our great nation, there are a whole lot of funny dumb laws. For example, the internet will tell you that in Boise, Idaho, it’s illegal to fish from the back of a giraffe — although in reality, this turns out to be a myth — despite its inclusion in many lists of dumb laws, […]

Tuesday’s Daily Show had some fun with last weekend’s NRA convention, leading off, as one must, with the WTF heard round the world, Sarah Palin’s weird joke about how waterboarding is how she’d baptize terrorists. And then he reminded us that this person was once the vice presidential candidate of one of America’s national political […]

Here’s conceptual artist Sarah Palin at the NRA convention Saturday, explaining how she would win the war on terror by simultaneously ignoring both the First and the Eighth Amendments: They obviously have information on plots to carry out Jihad. Oh, but you can’t offend them, can’t make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen. Well, […]
