You are looking to reach over 650k unique human beings each month – Wonkette readers are born with an advanced degree and at least one third of them even have jobs! – and we are looking to keep from peddling our children on the street. Let us help you help us!
The Wonkette Drinky Meetup Salons begin with a party one week from today in Los Angeles, California. (Next up will be Detroit in early June. You excited, Detroit? When’s the last time someone came to see you? Long time, right? Here, let us wipe your tears and hand you a xanax.) All comers are welcome, [...]
Good morning from your Wonkette editor since, oh, 2006. It has been an exciting (terrible?) six years, hasn’t it? There was old what’s his name, and Iraq, and the Great Recession, and then the sexy president with his singing and dancing all the time.

Let us bow our collective heads in gratitude to the many fine sponsors who keep this Wonkette operation floating upon the terrible seas of democracy: YouBetYourHealth.com, PrescriptionForChange.org, Meat.org, Barbara Parker’s The Dark of Day, Naomi Novik’s Victory of Eagles, the all-new Newsweek, Christopher Davenport’s As You Were, UNC Business Essentials, and Dad’s Awesome Grilling Book.
