Bradlee Dean Makes Up History Again, Says Dirty Commies Invented The Word ‘Racism’ So There’s No Such Thing

Wonkette frenemy and weird child-thrashing advocate Bradlee Dean just wants you all to know that he is not bothered by all you dumb liberal bigots calling him a bigot, and he has studied up on these matters. On his podcast last weekend, Dean explained that he is rubber and you are glue, because Leon Trotsky made up the word “racism” to smear anyone who is not a communist. That is just plain science and history, and there is no disputing it, unless maybe you do some research, which could take entire minutes.

Study: Republicans Oppose ‘Assisted Suicide,’ Cool With ‘Painless End Of Life’

Look, Democrats have a lot going for them right now. There’s our “flashy” President B. Barry Bamz and his healthcare law that can’t possibly be as bad as Republicans have spent the last half a decade derping that it will be, so expectations managed there; the country’s suddenly a lot cooler with gay folks, pot smoking, all that good shit; the proponents of austerity have self-discredited; and looking into the future, there appears to be only one “titanic” Republican who could conceivably win the presidency in 2016, except his record of being relatively sane means he probably can’t win the primary. So there is really no reason for all us liberals to be assholes about a recent Gallup poll that found Republicans are significantly more likely than Democrats to give different answers to the same question depending on how the question is worded.

Super Tuesday Liveblog The Third: Spit It Out, Ohio! And Other Vague Shrugs Of Assent

Hello. What are you doing? It’s time to figure out what some quadrilateral land masses think about three organic masses and one gas, which were each forced to apply for Obama’s job because their tyrannical wives and gas-wife made them. We would say, We are watching this very closely, but that would be plagiarism, so we will just say, We have televisions that seem to work. What’s happened so far is that Romney has won Virginia and hilariously won a large portion of Massachusetts, Gingrich has won Georgia but has yet to figure out what his sleep number is, and Ron Paul has gone to Outer Snow Space to speak to a frozen tundra of anemia sufferers. Santorum has won Tennessee. Romney has also won Vermont, which is a real shame, and we’re still waiting to find out about Ohio, and what percentage of any of this matters.

Sarah Palin Declares ‘Wee-Wee’ to Be a Word, Thing That Santorum Haters Do

Sarah Palin went on Fox News to talk about Satan’s 2008 speech about Rick Santorum on Tuesday, and in the process made a sound that she then passed off as an adjective recognized by English speakers as something that people who don’t like Rick Santorum do when Rick Santorum does something that they don’t like. The sound was “wee-wee,” and its definition is…well, who can say? Is it the sound of pigs heading home from market? Is it the sound of crying? Is it a British child saying it has to go to the bathroom? The correct usage of this term is apparently “all wee-weed up,” which, so, grabbing one’s crotch in uncertainty and fear? Well, according to OBAMA, who uttered this very same expression in 2009, it means bedwetting. You see, well, when Obama says things, we must all go running for the dictionary, because he holds an elected office, and, not insignificantly, stays in that office for the appointed time.

Sarah Palin’s Non-Word ‘Refudiate’ Is Merriam-Webster’s New Favorite Word

Oh for Pete’s sake! Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Summer is Sarah Palin’s merciless assault on the Queen’s English, “refudiate,” and only because refudiate has been the most searched-for non-word on its Internet website since the fateful day William Kristol declared it a miracle of profound conservative wordsmithery. Is the volume of Internet searches the only criteria for this literary honor? We are confused then as to why “Bristol Palin nekkid” or maybe “birfcertificate” is not the Word of the Summer. Very fishy indeed, perhaps fishy enough to warrant a recount? Read more on Sarah Palin’s Non-Word ‘Refudiate’ Is Merriam-Webster’s New Favorite Word…

Bill Kristol Uses Non-Word To Define Conservative Agenda

Hi America, do you have a second? Because Bill Kristol needs your help most urgently. He is searching for a word that defines the “conservative agenda,” a word that means “to refute making sense” and “to repudiate Mexicans,” a special word meaning both of these things at the same time. “Get a brain, morans” doesn’t quite work, because it is a complete sentence and not a word. Hm. Oh wait what about Sarah Palin’s Shakespearean Couplet, “refudiation”? Yes, that just might be stupid enough! Read more on Bill Kristol Uses Non-Word To Define Conservative Agenda…
