The House of Representatives wants to vote on a bill that would “prohibit major federal regulations until the unemployment rate falls to 6 percent,” meaning it wants to ban new regulations permanently. Unfortunately, the version that House Republicans entered yesterday said that “federal agencies would be barred from issuing new regulations until the labor secretary […]

What is funnier than a typographical error on the front page of the N Y Times Dot Com, the Tumblr of Record? It’s great, because they’re like, “Hey, we’re the New York Times, we’re the best, feed me caviar,” and then they screw up and everyone chuckles for two seconds. Today they posted a TimesCast […]

Good heavens! This electronick “ABCNews.com” reporte suggesteth that regent-lord HRH Peggington Noonington, chief wordsmithingtonshire of the Wall Street Journal banking pamphlet, is a Communiste, as though She keepeth court with textile-craffters or Chicagoe Africkans.

Congress is still in session for about 60 seconds a day just to do things like pass a resolution extending the funding for the FAA and  block recess appointments, both of which are politically important/ newsworthy but neither of which hold much political comedy. But it has been a whole 3 or 4 days without […]

Wonkette operative “Paul G.” sends in this rewritten AP article printed in the St. Petersburg Times. Look, the death of bin Laden actually resulted in a slight restoration of civil liberties! But we’re still going to call them “Muslin.” Speaking of which, are our friends on Facebook still concerned about “the Muslin’s”?

That state attorney general who “won” at being the first to defeat Obamacare in his state apparently would like to be beamed up to heaven very quickly so he can go be one of Osama bin Laden’s “Virginans,” which sounds like a cross between “virgin” and “vagina” and “trans.” Wow, what a combo! Whatever your […]

This strange image is on Mitt Romney’s Flickr. With no explanation. Is that a cue card? Who is telling the perfectly still nondescript Mormon to say that? Is it Joseph Smith? L. Ron Hubbard? Jared Loughner? Hey, maybe this election is going to be a contest after all, because who’s going to get Oprah’s endorsement, […]

The two most important parts of a lady, on the body of one of our finest actors. Nothing to joke about. [screengrab via Wonkette operative "Tim H."]

With the exceptions of a “Rich Whitey Lady” now and then and the very occasional “Rich Black Guy” such as Barack Obama, in America the only people who win major elections are Rich Whiteys. So the only real surprise in this story about a guy named Rich Whitney suffering a typo that changed him to […]

A tipster spotted this angry letter about the Ground Zero Not-Mosque on the website of Raleigh, North Carolina’s News & Observer newspaper. Instead of “Muslim,” it uses the word “muslin” — which your Wonkette uses all the time, because “muslin” is what the Prophet Muhammad actually called his followers. If you are a linguistics professor […]

We all know that the Republicans control Twitter, but it looks like they’re working on Facebook now. It would be astonishing, though, if the failed committee responsible for losing more than a dozen Senate seats in the last two elections were to get 2 “supporters” on Facebook.

Here’s the current center graphic of John McCain’s website, which links to his Plan For Small Businesses, such as this suffering barbershop in what appears to be a rich, conservative seaside command center, like Orange County. This is not a “buisness” at all, idiot! Go back to second grade! There’s no such thing! [John McCain]

Wonkette comical typos operative “Ron” sends us this screen shot of a CNN.com article in which Karl Rove lets slip a revelation of his own about terrible snitch Scott McClellan. McClellan’s syntax in his new book reeks of liberal blogging filth? No, that’s not what Rove is revealing at all! Rove is trying to tell […]
