The Fartknocker Report: Sarah Palin Rewrites McDonald’s Ad Real Good-Like

The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report, Presented By Fartknocker
Sarah Palin went to Iowa this weekend. Is she running for President? She’s not not running for President, she can tell you that much! How not-uninterested is she, Washington Post? “I am. As I said yesterday, I’m really interested in the opportunity to serve at some point,” Palin said Friday, as former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, a potential 2016 rival, looked on.

Iowa Freedom Summit To Gather Most Of America’s Rightwing Idiots In One Place

Bachmann kept trying to get the Riddler into Conversion Therapy
Oh, dear lord, Iowa is going to be like a superdense mass of Dumb this weekend, as Rep. Steve King and Citizens United host the “Iowa Freedom Summit” — kind of a Moronic Convergence of rightwing political hacks all coming together to hang out with the man who proclaimed that DREAM Act kids were mostly “drug mules with thighs calves the size of cantaloupes” [how quickly we forget!] and who fretted about the president hosting a “deportable” at the State of the Union.

The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report: Sarah Takes Sort Of Stand Against Wall Street Maybe

The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report, Presented By Fartknocker
FDR’s speechwriters are spinning in their graves after Sarah Palin’s most recent Ask Me Anything. Come along, Wonketeers, we’ll explain in the car. First, the numbers: Palin published just under six minutes of video content in the last week, which means she’s back to running the laziest grift in American politics. More than half of this week’s content centers on one question from “John,” who writes in to Ask Sarah Anything. (Incidentally, Palin’s Ask Me Anything segments now have a new acoustic intro; it sounds more like Prairie Home Companion‘s interludes, only somehow more self-righteous, if that’s even possible.) Here is John’s question, with all punctuation and capitalization sic’d from the original. Read more on The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report: Sarah Takes Sort Of Stand Against Wall Street Maybe…

Ass, Gas Or Grass: Which Is Sarah Palin Offering Here?

Sarah Palin’s teevee show is back! Maybe it was on last night? We do not know and we would not have put it on our eyeballs anyway. BUT! We did watch this trailer for it, because Sarah Palin is hanging her ass out like, when is she not? Anyway, it is awful. Live it with us!

Republicans Have Massive Freedom Boner For Egypt’s Dictator

Why can't we have a nice military dictator too?
Attention, Wonkers: We’re proud to announce that the American right has a new Strongman Boyfriend! They seem to have a real crush on Egyptian President Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who seized power in the 2013 coup against Mohammed Morsi. Lots of wingers love him because he outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood and made the trains run on time, or at least he outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood. And even better, as Sen. Lindsey Graham noted over the weekend, al-Sisi recognizes the need for an actual religious war against radical Islam, while Barack Obama pretends that terrorists aren’t even Muslims at all, and won’t even say the words “radical Islam,” except for the times that Obama has actually said “radical Islam.” Read more on Republicans Have Massive Freedom Boner For Egypt’s Dictator…

GOP Ladies Cool With Letting Menfolk Do All The Presidenting, Thanks

We all know the GOP is the real party of, by, and for chicks because they have told us SO many times. But that doesn’t mean they care about how Chick-Americans are doing in these American United States. Or whether Chick-Americans ever obtain anything laughably approaching equality in the workplace or our government or anywhere else, really. Come ON. It’s one thing to have campaign ads that show pictures of Republican women being Republican — and women! — but it’s something else entirely to care about whether those pretty ladies ever hold any actual power.

Obama ‘Petulant Child’ For Depriving Secret Service Of Old French Whores

'Hey there, petulant child.' 'Hey there, failed congressional candidate.'
Image from “The Secret Service Agent Workout Routine,” Muscle & Fitness Magazine Hey, you know how Obama completely destroyed American credibility by not flying to Paris for that not-quite-a-march “March of Unity” of world leaders earlier this week? Never mind that if he had gone, we’d be hearing nothing but “How dare he waste all our taxpayer moneys gallivanting around with cheese-eaters who weren’t even in the actual march!” Read more on Obama ‘Petulant Child’ For Depriving Secret Service Of Old French Whores…

The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report: There Goes Sarah Knowin’ Stuff About Russia Again

After a content-heavy end to the year, the Sarah Palin Channel has regressed to the mean. She’s posted three videos in the last seven days, one of which was designed as a complement to her Faceplace screed on DogGate. And if we’re being perfectly honest with ourselves, Palin’s video about Jill Hadassah (yes, that is the dog’s actual name) is really cute and does exactly what it’s intended to do. Beware, Wonketeers, for Sarah Palin is improving in her ability to grift across multiple media channels, and she’s doing it with a widdle puppy with a cute widdle puppy face.

Who Will Be California’s Next Barbara Boxer? (Hint: It Is Probably Scott Brown)

Breaking political news to grandchildren is the pits
Well, it had to happen sometime, and apparently that “sometime” is 2016, because Barbara Boxer, one of the best liberals to ever lib up the Senate chamber with her San Francisco valyews, has announced to her grandson on video that she will not be seeking re-election in 2016, citing her desire to spend more time with her California. Is she RETIRING, though? Golly gee no, because there are still many, many things to be done. We are not certain whether she intended to release this announcement, or whether her grandson set this video to “public” on accident, but it’s out there now, can’t go back! Let’s watch it. I’ll live-blog, you laugh, got it? Me type words, you react in jolly manner. Let’s go: Read more on Who Will Be California’s Next Barbara Boxer? (Hint: It Is Probably Scott Brown)…

Sarah Palin Was Someone’s ‘Achiever’ Of The Year. Let That Sink In.

When we saw that Sarah Palin had been named someone’s “Achiever” of the year of our lord 2014, unfortunately, we were forced to read on. BUT HOW did someone name the former half-term governor “achiever” of anything, we asked ourselves! Did she even have a reality show this year? (Unknown.) Luckily, Bristol “Lefty” Palin was there to answer. Read more on Sarah Palin Was Someone’s ‘Achiever’ Of The Year. Let That Sink In….

Sarah Palin Being A Bit Of A Dick Again!

Over the weekend, there was a bit of a dogshitstorm when former half-term governor/queen of your nightmares Sarah Palin posted a picture of her (VERY CUTE) son Trig standing on his service animal. Most people would say, “honey, we don’t stand on the dog.” Palin chose instead to parabolate on stepping stones, and how you should step on people and dogs and then probably shoot them from a helicopter. The internet was not pleased! Read more on Sarah Palin Being A Bit Of A Dick Again!…

The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report: We Showed Sarah Palin’s Bra, We Guess?

The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report, Presented by Fartknocker
A man gave us money to watch The Sarah Palin Channel. That man was Fartknocker. In a recent Ask Me Anything, Sarah Palin started with a relatively simple question: “If (or when) you run for President, will you be calling for term limits?” The next FOUR WHOLE MINUTES are devoted to the former Alaska governor attempting to pick her way through a political minefield, because apparently Palin does everything in one take, love it or leave it.

Deleted Comments: Alas, We Have Offended A Sensitive Soul (Or Men’s Rights Activist, Same Difference)

How can we ever win back the trust of an offended MRA? Perhaps with ponies?
Your Wonkette isn’t perfect, lord only knows, and when we err, we seek to make amends. Which brings us to this very important message from our comments queue, from “jrayhawk” (please, no Ray Jay Johnson jokes), who felt that we treated the subject of a recent story quite shabbily. Friday, we ran a story about several important developments in gender relations, including the sad tale of Scott Aaronson, a professor at MIT who has pretty much had it with how feminists have criminalized every last aspect of male sexuality. Jrayhawk felt that we failed to give Aaronson an even break because we sided with the mean women instead of with their victim: Read more on Deleted Comments: Alas, We Have Offended A Sensitive Soul (Or Men’s Rights Activist, Same Difference)…

Sarah Palin Pisses Off Allllll The Animal Lovers. Oh Like You’ve Never Stepped On A Dog

Sarah Palin has pissed off alllll the animal lovers — but you knew that, it was right there in the headline! — by letting her small son stand on his service dog to “help with the dishes.” They are SO MAD YOU GUYS. They are all like “HELP! PETA HOTLINE! PLEASE COME AND TAKE AWAY THIS SERVICE DOG AND EUTHANIZE IT, BECAUSE THAT IS THEIR ADMITTED POLICY, EUTHANIZE FIRST AND ASK QUESTIONS LATER.” Come on, like you’ve never stood on a dog.

Elizabeth Warren Is Our 2014 Legislative Badass Of The Year, Obviously Duh

How much do we heart the senator and perfessor of Massachusetts, the greatest and bestest Elizabeth Warren who ever Elizabeth Warrened? Pretty much all. Sure, there are a few — a very few — non-Elizabeth Warrens in the Senate who aren’t too bad for being non-Elizabeth Warrens. Bernie Sanders, the socialist senator from Vermont, isn’t too bad at badassing and makes a mighty fine runner-up for 2014 Legislative Badass.

2014: The Year Bristol Palin And Her Mom, Ol’ Whatsername, Made All Our Dreams Come True

She's all out of makeup, frankly.
There’s this lady, Sarah Palin, you wouldn’t know her. She flitted through the public consciousness for a hot minute in 2008, and then was never heard from again. Haha, spoiler alert, yes she was. We’re sorry. But aside from all Sarah Palin’s usual hijinks, most of which involved either racism or grift (because like we said, “usual”), there was one glorious moment in 2014 in which all the Palin clan’s true class became as crystal clear as the finest Coors Lite. And it lasted like a month. Read more on 2014: The Year Bristol Palin And Her Mom, Ol’ Whatsername, Made All Our Dreams Come True…

Sarah Palin Literally Phones It In To Fox’s All American Christmas ‘Special’

Guys. GUYS. This is basically the best thing that ever happened. Todd Starnes, Fox News Radio host and one of the world’s greatest defenders of Conservative Tax-cutting Gun-toting Jesus, celebrated the birth of our lord (Jesus, not Ronald Reagan) with a singing and dancing and totally not gay at all spectacular All-American Christmas Special. And it is SO the best. Why, just look at these ladies celebrating Jesus in their aprons, probably about to make some sammiches as the good lord intended!

TLC Invites You To Watch Maybe-Gay Mormons Ice Skate, Try Not To Think About Naked Guys

We’ve come to expect a certain level of quality and self-awareness from The Learning Channel, which has brought us such chronicles of the human condition as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, 90-Day Fiancee, and Sarah Palin’s Alaska. From this august tradition comes their new one-hour special, My Husband’s Not Gay, in which Mormon guys who like other guys show us how fun it is for them to be married to women.

Fox News Thinker Greg Gutfeld: Stephen Colbert Would Be Nothing Without Us (And Our F**kups)

You're looking at a guy who knows cool
Following Stephen Colbert’s big finale on the Colbert Report, the thought leaderers of Fox’s The Five shared their thoughts on Colbert’s sendoff. Dana Perino and Kimberly Guilfoyle thought it would have been a nice touch if Bill O’Reilly had been included in the big sing-along, apparently unaware that Colbert had said earlier in his final week that “no one’s going to pay me to watch [O’Reilly] anymore, so fuck that noise!” Read more on Fox News Thinker Greg Gutfeld: Stephen Colbert Would Be Nothing Without Us (And Our F**kups)…

Sarah Palin’s Brother Learning The Art Of The Sweet Sweet Grift

lol
We’ve had a lot of fun over the years laughing until we puked about how former half-term governor Sarah Palin loves to fleece rubes. (You and your family should probably check Grandma’s bank statements before you send her to the home.) But did you know grifting is an art you can learn? It’s true! Just ask Palin’s brother, Chuck Heath Jr., who has a kickstarter up for the fine and noble purpose of buying Chuck Heath Jr. some new camera equipment! Let’s see what Brotherquitter has to say!

The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report: The Greatest Gift Of All

The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report, Presented by Fartknocker
This week, Sarah Palin pumped out a lot of Christmas-themed content, showing us that it is truly better to give than to receive, so long as you’re giving to the Sarah Palin Channel. On closer inspection, all her Christmas videos are from the same filming session, thus further proving our theory that the Sarah Palin Channel is the most ruthlessly efficient grift going.

The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report: Abortion, Vikings, And The Obvious Grift

The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report, Presented by Fartknocker
The Sarah Palin Channel is conducting a fascinating investigation into just how little content it can publish without losing subscribers. Palin has published fewer than 22 minutes of video this month, and even that abysmally small number is inflated. For example, Palin’s post on December 4th is three minutes and 26 seconds long, but the final 1:20 is a SarahPAC video posted to YouTube more than three years ago. The longest video she’s posted this month was her Hunger Games-inspired Ask Me Anything (runtime: 6:44), which, by definition, is just Palin giving off-the-cuff responses to her fans’ questions. And the only piece of content she’s published in the last seven days is a 97-second-long video titled “The Never Resolved Debt Crisis,” that was shot in 2013; this is spun as “never-before-seen” content, rather than a boring bowl of word salad that should have been left in the garbage where it was originally dumped.
