It sure is a good thing that politics stops at the water’s edge, because otherwise this Mitt Romney pouting in the Wall Street Journal sure would be controversial, since basically he tells America that we really screwed up bad by choosing such a terrible president who is decidedly not Mitt Romney. You see, were it […]

Often is the question asked: Are Dick Cheney crazy, stupid, or lying? Even if you don’t limit yourself to choosing just one, it’s tougher to answer this question about Cheney than it is with many of his peers. Consider this quote, typed out by POLITICO from Cheney’s recent appearance on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show “I […]

A round of applause, please, for John McCain’s reply to a question from Brian Williams on Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News. Over the weekend, at the Values Voter summit, Texas congressdoofus Louie Gohmert had accused McCain of supporting al Qaeda — this has become the standard teabagger attack on anyone who suggests any support for Syrian […]

We have an important update to our earlier story about the Great Big Siege of Washington D.C. that some wingnut truckers have planned for this weekend. They’re still about 977,000 trucks short of their goal of a million truckers, but if the 3,000 truckers who RSVP’d as of last week actually do show up, that’s […]

Hey, here’s a break from your Gummint Shutdowm news: wingnut conspiracy theorist Erik Rush, the WND genius who honored Free Speech Week by calling for the execution of journalists and warned that Barry Bamz will declare Christianity a mental illness, is back with a brand new conspiracy theory! And this new one is a doozy, […]

Updated Update: OK, got the video working! It’s right after the jump! Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher sent us a tip with some exclusive video of a Code Pink protest across the street from the White House today while Barry Bamz met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. As is their trademark, they were not especially polite: […]

Blogging is largely a matter of finding the right stuff to write about. For instance, we see that the Washington Post has a new political science blog feature called “The Monkey Cage” – from the H.L. Mencken quote, “Democracy is the art of running the circus from the monkey cage.” And its first post is […]

In one of those weird astronomical things that celestial mechanics throws the solar system now and then, Yr Wonkette and Ghost Breitbart’s House of Free-Floating Rage find themselves in a rare alignment, with both blogs asking, “Hey, John McCain, WTF dude?” Breitbart’s AWR Hawkins (those are initials, but we always use our Pirate voice when […]

Today Russian President Vladimir Putin wrote an op-ed for The New York Times in which he pleaded with the United States to be cautious in its dealings with Syria. Thanks to the type of journalistic legwork you have come to expect from your Wonkette, we were able to turn up the original draft of Putin’s […]

Forget trying to make sense of Peggy Noonan on Syria. We’re sticking with Alex Jones. He may not be anchored in reality, but at least he’s clear about where he stands. Which is solidly in the Twilight Zone: Alex Jones said this week that an effort to avert a U.S. attack on Syria with diplomacy […]

Between the 9/11 anniversary and Syria, there is just not a lot out there this morning, so let’s grit our teeth and shovel through some of the pundit-leavings on Barry’s big Syria speech together, shall we? Let’s start with Peggy Noonan’s pre-speech analysis, in which she proclaims the prospect of Syria’s surrendering its chemical weapons […]

If there is one thing for which we can always count on the Ole Perfesser, Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds, it is his propensity for churning out columns of such rank stupidity and willful ignorance that we wonder if all his former students might have an easily winnable class action lawsuit against him for stealing all their […]

Glenn Beck has decided that his favorite conservative anthem is now “War: What Is It Good For? (Absolutely Nothin’).” You see, Glenn had a moment of revelation: This whole Syria thing, man, it’s just about the oil, you know? (Syria doesn’t have that much oil, really, but don’t stop him, he’s on a roll). And […]

We watched Storage Wars last night instead of the President’s address on Syria, but we read the transcript and we give it a B. Hit the right marks, soaring rhetoric kinda phoned-in. So now let’s commence the giving of mad Syria props because the new narrative is that they solved it with a year of […]

The story so far: Barack Obama said: “I am terrible at foreign policy, therefore I will say a bunch of stuff I only half-mean, such as that there’s a red line, and that I’m going to bomb everybody, but it will be obvious I don’t want to, and everyone will think I’m a moron.” Then […]
