Bill O’Reilly: Leave That Sexist Barack Obama Alooooooone!

Sexism expert.
Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com If you’ve been obsessed like we have with the utterly riveting debate over the Trans-Pacific Partnership, you are aware that there is a bit of a meta-flap about how commie gay Kenyan usurper Barack Obama can add “lady-hater” to his list of adjectives, because he called your favorite Sen. Elizabeth Warren by her first name in an interview. The exact quote: “The truth of the matter is that Elizabeth is, you know, a politician like everybody else.” You might be saying, “But Elizabeth is her name and they are grown-ups, and the president calls girls and boys by their first names, WHAT?” But that didn’t stop Ohio Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown from saying Obama is a big old sexist, because he never would have said “Sherrod, you are A Idiot,” he would have said “Mighty penis-having Senator Brown, you are A Idiot.” (Even though yes he would — and has.)

Student Loan Bill Lubes Up At Least Before Screwing Students

Surely you Wonketteers have heard the librul media and members of Congress crowing about the new student loan bill, which is apparently not only a great deal for students but is also significant because it demonstrates that Congress is capable of passing something on a bipartisan basis. Everybody wins: Congress looks good! The new bill doesn’t add to the deficit! And students’ rates will fluctuate with the market so now students have EVEN MORE skin in the game! USA USA! Here, let us take a closer look at the crappy deal that everyone is so excited about. Read more on Student Loan Bill Lubes Up At Least Before Screwing Students…

Wonkette Salutes Fallen Hero And Pep Club President, Ohio Son Josh Mandel

We knew Ohio state Treasurer Josh Mandel was a TREASURE in his own right smack in the middle of his first debate with blowsy Ohio rambler Sherrod Brown. He was GRANDLY ORATING some total nonsense, and then he said this incredibly dumb thing about loving women because he totally has a wife and mom so the fact that he is terrible on every single women’s issue ever is like totally irrelevant. (Fucking AMAZING CLIP THAT YOU MUST WATCH not embeddable, fucking SPAN!) But has he done anything else to deserve a coveted slot in the Wonkette Pantheon of Fallen Heroes?

Live-Blogging The Final Ohio Senate Debate: We Just Can’t Get Enough Of Smurfy Boy Scout Josh Mandel

Sorry, sorry, we are 10 minutes late, we had to … well, we didn’t have to do anything actually, except convince ourselves to actually turn on THE SPAN and voluntarily face an hour with walking Clearasil ad/Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel. Here we go! 7:14 PM — Oh good it is the surprisingly wee Chuck Todd. We introduced ourselves to him at the Buzzfeed party in Charlotte, and he immediately turned his back and looked for anyone else to talk to! Jim Newell says every person at every party is always like that when you’re a Wonket. SADFACE. Josh Mandel is promising only two terms or something, because by then he will be old enough to be the FIRST TEENAGE PRESIDENT! Go Josh!

Ohio Senate Candidate Josh Mandel Loves Women So Much, Has A Mom And Wife And Everything

Good times on the ol’ SPAN last night, as Ohio state Treasurer/debate club fetus TOOK IT to Senator Sherrod Brown, and by “took it to” we mean yelled his talking points with awesome macho frowning and stuff. Did you know that Josh Mandel served his country in Iraq? It is true, he did, though how he managed not to take a dose of friendly fire from his fellow troops who must have LOVED him is beyond what our puny mortal brains can understand. We think the first time he mentioned his service was in response to a Muslim fellow asking why he had run anti-Muslim ads against an opponent. The answer to that was “Iraq and ladies rights, don’t we all agree HENGHHH?” Then there was his answer to ladies’ rights HERE (clip not embeddable, FUCK YOU, SPAN!), to which his answer was “I have a wife and a mom! JERBS!” Dude, so suavay. Read more on Ohio Senate Candidate Josh Mandel Loves Women So Much, Has A Mom And Wife And Everything…

Student Loan Bubble Reaches Around 1 Trillion, So What Who Cares

Oh LOOK someone has decided to do something about the gigantic loan bubble (student, not housing) in the form of commissioning a report from the Consumer Protection Bureau, and YAY Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill) has gone ahead and followed the recommendations of the report, introducing not one, but TWO bills on private student loans! TWO! And one of them would even reverse the bankruptcy discharge law! Does the system finally work? Does it? Of course it doesn’t, this is America, and so both of these bills are “going nowhere!”  USA! USA! Read more on Student Loan Bubble Reaches Around 1 Trillion, So What Who Cares…

Look America, It’s The Exact Moment When You Became Rich

Here’s a clip of Sen. Sherrod “60th Man” Brown finally showing up at a mostly empty Senate last night, saying a couple of words, and thereby giving each of you lazy slobs a job for once. CNN even shows Sherrod’s expensive Cadillac pulling up to the Senate at 10:30 on a Friday night to cast a deciding vote. In Washington, this is the very definition of “baller.” Read more on Look America, It’s The Exact Moment When You Became Rich…

U.S. Economic Future Awaiting Flight From Ohio

The House passed the watered-down Stimulus Bill! With no Republican votes, obviously — they don’t want to get in trouble with their drug-addict talk-radio boss, what’s his name, Mr. Vulgarian. And now the Senate is voting, hooray! They’ve got 59 of the filibuster-proof 60 votes needed, so it’s all down to one guy, from Ohio. If and when he shows up for work ….

Mike DeWine Whines

The last we saw of the google-eyed incumbent Republican senator from Jeffrey Dahmer’s home adopted home state of Ohio, he was giving the bum’s rush to a libidinous junior office worker by the name of…wait, don’t tell us, it’s right on the tip of our tongue, you know the one who wrote the novel and posed for Playboy and is now running a dude ranch in California with the Fonz and Lenny and Squiggy and Josie and the Pussycats.
