How Cool Is Wonkette?

So cool I just don’t get it at all, but, never having EVER been “cool” in my whole life, I won’t claim to understand what makes one “so cool”. But somehow I don’t think it’s this, although I’m sure all your equally self-annointed “super-cool” buddies could spend the afternoon convincing and assuring each other that you were the coolest, hippest, cleverest thing since the last cool cat who smacked someone who couldn’t ever hope to defend themselves against your utterly urban smarmicoolness.

What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded.

Here are a couple of excellent YouTube tributes to the magic intellectually disabled baby prop, presented by Glenn Beck:

“Why just celebrate tax day today, April 18th? It’s also Trig Paxson Van Palin’s 3rd birthday. His mom went to a lot of trouble to leak amniotic fluid over 8 states to make sure that he arrived in this world somewhat alive,” writes Wonkette operative “Barbara_i,” reminding us of the occasion. “Sarah went to a whole lot of trouble to name him ‘Van Palin,’ a ‘Van Halen’ reference he will never get.” Indeed.

What’s sad is that if “Wonkette operative Barbara_i” ever brought a Trig to term, she’d be the subject of Cosmo/Elle/Vogue cover shoots/heroine pathos pieces by the gross ton, emphasis on the “gross”.

Despicable. And really. Someone still reads Wonk anyway? Kinda shocked about that.

UPDATE: Too clever by half. After getting nailed for their revolting little column, advertizers respond to Tweets by dropping Wonkette ~ way to go Papa John’s, Huggies and Vanguard ~ Wonkette at first blasts back at Papa John’s in what passes for an excuse, I guess…


@papajohns Sarah Palin uses her special-needs child as a craven political prop for the anti-family GOP. That’s reprehensible and we mock it.

…but now damned if they aren’t busy scrubbing posts and deleting all SORTS of stuff.

Silly wabbits.

It’s called a “cache”. I’ll link to that, yes I will.

    Wonkette is an idiot who survives as a writer by posting crap. Which just demonstrates how many people are full of crap these days.

  2. major dad says:

    There a couple of words to describe the piece of shit Wonkette that I won’t use here or in private lest THS remove my head with extreme prejudice.

  3. Kathy Kinsley says:

    I had almost forgotten who/what Wonkette was until this post. It’s been 5 or 6 years since I visited that site. Then I had to go hunt down the post no-one would link just to see if it was as bad as you said (it was – and the first page of comments was worse). The second page wasn’t as bad, since I wasn’t the only one ‘on the other side’ who found the actual post…

    It will probably be another 5 or 6 years before I visit little Wonky again.

  4. I remember seeing a link to her site at Drudge around 1996 or so. The vileness as she wrote about Newt Gringrich was overwhelming.

    I can’t begin to imagine what she has written about Beck and Palin.

    Isn’t “Wonkette” the one who used to feature the part-time hooker with the anal fetish?

  6. tree hugging sister says:

    That one, mojo. I think it’s gone all HuffPo now ~ multi bloggers after she sold out to be BIG TIME.

  7. JeffS says:

    Yeah, that’s the idiot, mojo. I read her a few times, decided she was unhinged, and stopped.

    But unhinged ain’t the half of it. Ye Gods, that post is insane.

  8. Ave says:

    Such behavior is inexcusable and reprehensible.

  9. aelfheld says:

    I guess the retailing of receiving anal penetration by various strangers got old.

  10. Skyler says:

    Childishness. It’s exactly what has become of political discussion in the US. I don’t know why, but adults no longer behave like adults, especially among the left. It’s really quite disconcerting to see the complete lack of reason and responsibility among them.

  11. Val Prieto says:

    The thing with Jack Stuef, the “writer” of the post in question, is that he’s a coward. Hiding behind a keyboard, spewing this vile crap knowing precisely and absolutely that should he say something like that to someone – like, for example, me – in person, he’d be reduced to a bloody little stump.

    The cache has been overwritten now, but I took a screencap of the page the first day I saw it, suspecting that it would eventually be memory-holed:
