The story so far: Under a hail of imaginary bricks and pee jars and real sexy Wendy Davises, Texas’s state legislature passed a law that says all current abortion providers must have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinics. Supporters of the bill said it was to help ladies be healthier, […]

Damn kids these days, with their rock ‘n roll devil music and their whip-its (wait, is that still a thing?), and their bracelets to raise awareness about breast cancer. The court battle between two girls and their Pennsylvania school over “I (heart) Boobies!” bracelets could be settled by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Easton Area […]

Retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor presided over the wedding of Jeffrey Trammell and Stuart Serkin at the Supreme Court in Washington DC Tuesday. O’Connor has known Trammell from her time as chancellor at the College of William and Mary, where Trammell was the first openly gay rector. Trammel and Serkin have been together for 36 […]

Well, Wonketteers, did we ever jump the gun back in June! We went and celebrated the Supreme Court’s smackdown of Arizona’s dumb voter-registration law, which required people to show a photo ID in order to register to vote. Basically, the SCOTUS held that states can’t have more restrictive registration requirements than federal law, and since […]

By now you are probably aware that Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court Justice most likely to haunt your dreams, got asked some really solid questions by New York Magazine lady Jennifer Senior, and some of his answers turned out to be rather wacky. He doesn’t know for sure if he knows any gay people! He literally believes the […]

The U.S. Department of Justice will sue to block North Carolina’s terrible new voter suppression laws, according to the Associated Press. Attorney General Eric Holder seems to think that even after the Supreme Court threw out part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, the rest of it still remains in effect and the federal government […]

We are just over a week from Obamacare officially kicking off the apocalypse and destroying our freedoms and Holocausting America and blah blah frickin’ blah, and we are already looking forward to cashing in our sweet, sweet government socialized Marxist Hitlerized medicine because we are SO SICK of all the equine manure Republicans have been […]

You know what’s fun to do? Lie to the American people for months about a government program, get them all hyped up and into a frothing, fanatical tizzy over the notion of defunding said government program, then looking around and realizing that you are just a Canadian-born ass-monkey Senator from Texas and actually have no […]

Despite its organizer’s prediction that “thousands of ex-gays” would turn out for a protest in front of the Supreme Court, the big “Ex-Gay Pride Month” event Wednesday drew a whopping ten people. Yr Wonkette would like to apologize for our wildly inaccurate prediction that the event would attract “tens, possibly dozens” of attendees. There’s just […]

Zombies are all the rage these days, from the video games kids are playing to teevee shows and movies, you can’t go anywhere to escape them. Not even the voting booth, according to South Carolina lying liar Attorney General Alan Wilson. From the Columbia Free Times: For a while last year, you couldn’t turn on […]

Oh, golly, kids, we think the SCOTUS decisions throwing out DOMA and Prop 8 may have actually broken poor Bryan Fischer. Just look at the sorry mess he threw up on the American Patriarchy Association’s blog Thursday. See, he’s going to really rip on those liberal Justices, using their own twisted sick logic to expose […]

Sup Pennsylvania? Oh, you were just there in your legislature, having your regular old “let’s all get up and jaw about something,” like US House members get to do for the CSPAN cameras when everyone else has gone home for the night, and some GAY tried to talk about the Supreme Court and DOMA? Well, […]

Here’s a thing Justice Scalia said during oral arguments on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (AKA B. Hussein Soetoro’s Diktat on the Punitive Application of Collectivist Death Panels v. Bald Eagle) that is quite typical of him: “An equally evident constitutional principle is the principle that the Federal Government is a government of […]

While we here in the librulsphere have not yet finished dancing on the graves of DOMA and Prop 8 and lulzing with Nancy at the tears of Michele Bachmann and all the other butthurt conservatives who are rending their garments and crying SO hard because when Jesus said love thy neighbor, they think he stage-whispered […]

Poor Bryan Fischer! The spokesman for the American Patriarchy Association has a MAJOR sad today, and he has lots of company following the Supreme Court’s decision overturning DOMA. It would appear that actually treating all marriages as equal in the eyes of the law means the end of America, which would make today roughly the […]
