• House Republican Eric Cantor responded to some of his critics with the most verboten of language, a sinful technical foul of our Constitution that just last month forced beloved Rod Blagoveich to perform for mercy on the David Letterman program. [HuffPost]
  • Another reprehensible instance of GOTCHA!-prepared-statement-giving-to-the-editorial-board-of-a-newspaper from the so-called “MSM”: Steve Austria, the Republican Kaiser of Ohio, blames America’s original great depression (“The Great Depression”) on FDR, despite FDR taking office four years after its start. [Matthew Yglesias]
  • Barack Obama has now taken to ambiguously insulting Joe Biden — incidentally and in an off-puttingly earnest way — in public. All this is to avenge Justice Roberts’ honor. [Los Angeles Times]

  • George W. Bush: kind of hot in high school. Andrew Sullivan prefers Dick Cheney though, which, ew. [Daily Dish]

    Apart from Ta-henisi Coates, the Atlantic really is a banal repository of douchewads.

    Nothing yet on the GOP supergenius who just won the Grand Prix d’ Historie with his recent pronouncements on the Great Depression? This is what happens to people who are raised on The Fountainhead and Rush Limbaugh.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Stephanie Herseth Whatsername. In a heartbeat.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Dubya’s kinda hot?! Geeze, he looks like the Duke Brother the other two don’t talk about.

  • Noodle Salad

    Does this mean we can blame Depression II on Palin/Jindal?

  • qwerty42

    I think Rep Austro-Hungarian Empire (R-OH) is only talking to his followers. Who would seem to consist of children who have not yet had their American History yet. Perhaps he hasn’t either. Or this is an elaborate attack on so-called “linear time”. I dunno.

  • Servo

    Alright, Obama. It’s time to make your Emperor Palpatine move.

  • Iggy Plop

    I’ll second the Stephanie Herseth assuming it has to be a working politician – otherwise tossup between Carla Bruni and Julie Couillard.

  • nmmagayar

    a. that was GW’s DWI mug shot, not a year book photo
    b. Joe Fucking Biden could rock me any day, also

  • ManchuCandidate

    W’s got the unibrow in his HS photos.

  • Sussemilch

    [re=241227]qwerty42[/re]: 9/11 changed everything, including all of human history.

  • MathewBrooks

    Wonkette needs more filth. We need another Vitter/Craig/Spitzer scandal.

  • norbizness

    That really does look like a later picture of GW (considering he would have been in High School in the early-to-mid 60s); the ones of him as cheerleader are more representative.

    And give me Disco Granholm or give me death!

    P.S. Mark Foley (possibly fake because it’s too good to be true)

  • qwerty42

    [re=241227]qwerty42[/re]: Perhaps even better: a couple of days ago, someone suggested the Republicans were in fact a performance art troupe. along the lines of Andy Kaufman. This (plus Rep Cantor’s recent efforts) would explain a lot.

  • Iggy Plop

    And Steve Austria’s (R-the Dumb) retardation I think permits me to argue loudly with all conservatives that Ronald Reagan was actually responsible for all depressions Great and small. The man was so evil and incompetent he transcended time itself.

  • Terry

    “Andrew Sullivan Already Has Dibs On Cheney”

    Good Lord, would that be an ugly baby.

  • ronaldpagan

    [re=241224]SayItWithWookies[/re]: He looks too much like George W. Bush.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Paul Williams?

  • Hooray For Anything

    Ladies and Gentelmen, today’s Republican Party– dumb, vulgar, and classless.

  • hobospacejungle

    OT but the Jew York Times links to Wonkette ON ITS FRONT PAGE! ZOMG the end of history is upon us. Or the times is once again trying and failing to be “hip” and “with it.” Though I shouldn’t complain. More hits = more whore diamonds for our esteemed editors. So, WAY TO GO WONKETTE WOO HOO!

  • whore4hope

    BTW- Whenever I see the acronym MSM, I think not of Main Stream Media but of what the letters stand for in HIV/AIDS research: Men who have Sex with Men. (They don’t use the terms gay or homosexual because they don’t want to exclude anyone who “ain’t no fuckin’ homo!”)

    Anyway, as a result, when you use MSM, I immediately assume you are referring to Republicans.

  • Hooray For Anything

    W’s picture looks like it was taken the morning after an alcoholic, coke fueled binge and he had just emerged from about an hour or two of sleep.

  • populucious

    Repubs have gotten so good at rewriting history to rehab their own monstrous failures (Nixon is misunderstood! Reagan is a Golden God who emits magical healing rays and kittens!) there should be no suprise they’d start trying to re-write the history of the Dems: FDR caused the Depression! Woodrow Wilson caused the Iraq War! Thomas Jefferson caused Gay Marriage!

    It’s only a matter of time.

  • Beer4Prez

    I’m sorry, please don’t ban me, but Cheney is kind of hot. I would totally have hate-fucked that should the situation have arisen – but only if he was as psychotic THEN as he is NOW.

  • Min

    I love Joe Biden, dammit. He’s the bubblegum machine of politics. Offer him a penny for his thoughts, and they just roll right off the tip of his tongue.

  • Serolf Divad

    I vote “That’s just history” be the phrase that is inscribed on Steve Austria’s gravestone so the world never forgets his awesomeness.

  • norbizness

    [re=241294]ManchuCandidate[/re]: That (although he looks more like Paul Williams’ and Norm Coleman’s love child) and also the “ladies’ man” stuff in the caption.

  • Mustang

    I would do Barry or Joe but I would don’t any of the others. Hey! Even my hormones are democrats!

  • marioninnyc

    The W pic looked an awful lot like Ted Bundy. Did W ever live in Seattle or drive a yellow VW?

  • choinski

    Back then, ‘Dick Cheney will shoot you in the face’ had a COMPLETELY different meaning.

  • Iggy Plop

    Bill Clinton had the Elvis going on right from the start. That’s awesome. Pity someone couldn’t have written “Future World Leader” under that one when it first appeared.


    Today I learned that FDR could travel faster than the speed of light in his wheelchair.

    Thank you Republican Historians!

  • Ahneta

    I’m not going to read through 20 pages of HuffPo comments to see if anyone’s figured this out, but that ad that’s being attributed to Cantor has been around since 2007, at least. I’m all for giving him credit if it brings him down, but seriously? Republican mocks unions, dog bites man.

  • Mustang

    [re=241344]Beer4Prez[/re]: Don’t apologize. Hopey would be proud of you for reaching across the aisle in a spirit of bipartisan lust.

  • L Urchin

    Jimmy Carter–not doable then, but nice to see that he ditched the starched collars, boater hats, and high wheel bicycle. As for the rest, funny how attractive people can look before they sell their souls, though in Clinton’s case, getting out of Arkansas was abviously as good as plastic surgery.

  • Gorillionaire

    You know those Sanchez girls have got to be totally rockin’ in the sack.

  • AxmxZ

    Barry and Joe Biden were cuties then and are cuties now.

  • Brendan M.

    [re=241216]norbizness[/re]: That’s the guy that represents the most hippie place in Ohio, Yellow Springs (home of Antioch, biggest libtard/druggie/gay college ever). Of course, it is just a small blue electoral dot in a sea of red. Steve Austria actually grew up in neighboring Xenia. You can watch the movie Gummo to get a good idea of where he’s coming from…

  • Bearbloke

    I’d impregnate John Ashcroft, but only anally with my spike-glove-covered bull-semen-soaked fist…

  • IceCreamEmpress

    I can’t believe I am the first person to say WELL DUH, WE ALL KNEW SULLY WAS A SIZE QUEEN because holy Christ, Cheney’s packing an armadillo in his trousers.

    Or a colostomy bag. Hey, I don’t judge.
