Wonkette Services the Debate (takes a dig at blogs and FR for breaking Rathergate)
Little Green Footballs ^ | 12.20.04

Posted on 12/20/2004 7:01:44 PM PST by mhking

Courtesy of Newsweek, mainstream media’s pet blogger Wonkette takes a cute little slap at the bloggers who broke the Dan Rather fraud story: Fast Chat: The Wonkette.

What did you think of the bloggers’ role in the Dan Rather affair?
I think they did a disservice to the debate because they made the debate about the documents and not about the president of the United States. There was another half to that story that had to do with verifiable events of what Bush may have been up to.

While blogs like LGF were doing a “disservice to the debate” by exposing phony documents used to influence a presidential election, Wonkette was servicing the debate by speculating often about the size of John Kerry’s reproductive organ, and by trumpeting bogus exit poll results to the world on election day.

A real class act. You can see why she gets so much coverage in the MSM.

Her greatest contribution to the blogosphere was 'washingtonienne' a diary about a brat giving oral to politicians. Yes I should take her seriously!

So maybe bloggers should tturn their attention on Bernie's Nannygate ... if there is a nanny.
Anyone know the nanny's name?
Wonkette reflects the Washington culture ... both sides of the partisan spectrum.

The biggest problem is, IMHO, that she is neither insightful nor funny. If she had either of those attributes, she would at least have a shot at being interesting. Unfortunately, she combines a third-rate mind and a fourth-rate wit with a face made for the internet.

Hmm, so being accused of getting a dishonorable discharge for treasonous activities isn't a serious charge?

/I know, I know, the whole consistenty thing has never been a big deal for the left, but still, it has to be said.

How stupid is this wench?

What "about the president of the United States"? On what do we base "verifiable events"?

What an absolute dolt, saying we can't have facts entering into "the debate".

Face it, sex still sells. Wonkette is a young female who, according to her website, "does it" regularly and with numerous and only slightly restricted partners. That makes her a "hot babe" in the parlance of the bookers on media outlets.

If she was a young male who "played around" and had superficial opinions other than on sex, she would be one among millions and of no particular interest to the media. So what she has to say about Rathergate has no more relevance to the discussion than a discussion of what she did, with whom, with what part of her body, on a randomly chosen night last week. Which is to say, no relevance.

Did I miss anything?

Depending on who is the accused, of course.

If it's one of their guys the accusation, no matter how documented and eyewitnessed, is nothing but a right-wing smear.

You know, after five years of investigating the TANG issue, you'd think the events would have either been verifed or debunked, and no longer fall into the verifiable category.

The bulls**t meter is in the red.

My Dear Wonkette,
I believe this little message is Rather appropriate for you...........
So here it is.....
(Please take note)

Just so you'll understand......
Click The Pic
Now that you understand allow me reply to your Stupidity....
Click the Pic



You're a 1-bit brain with a parity error

You swine. You vulgar little maggot. You worthless bag of filth. As we say in Texas, I'll bet you couldn't pour piss out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

You are a canker. A sore that won't go away. I would rather kiss a lawyer than be seen with you. You're a putrescent mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a cad, a weasel. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon.

You are a bleating foal, a curdled staggering mutant dwarf smeared richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth into this world.
An insensate, blinking calf, meaningful to nobody, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who sired you and then killed themselves in recognition of what they had done.

I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf at the very thought of you.

You have all the appeal of a paper cut. Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention you smell? Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting to impress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a nincompoop will still be available to readers, but they will be able to access it more rapidly.

You snail-skulled little rabbit. Would that a hawk pick you up, drive its beak into your brain, and upon finding it rancid set you loose to fly briefly before spattering the ocean rocks with the frothy pink shame of your ignoble blood.

May you choke on the queasy, convulsing nausea of your own trite, foolish beliefs. You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid, nasty and profane. You are foul and disgusting. You're a fool, an ignoramus. Monkeys look down on you.

You are unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in a land that reality forgot. And what meaning do you expect your delusionally self-important statements of unknowing, inexperienced opinion to have with us? What fantasy do you hold that you would believe that your tiny-fisted tantrums would have more weight than that of a leprous desert rat, spinning rabidly in a circle, waiting for the bite of the snake?

You are a waste of flesh. You have no rhythm. You are ridiculous and obnoxious. You are the moral equivalent of a leech. You are a living emptiness, a meaningless void. You are sour and senile. You are a disease. You are a puerile, one-handed, slack-jawed, drooling, meatslapper. On a good day you're a half-wit. You remind me of drool.

You are deficient in all that lends character. You have the personality of wallpaper. You are dank and filthy. You are asinine and benighted. You are the source of all unpleasantness. You spread misery and sorrow wherever you go. You smarmy lagerlout git. You bloody woofter sod. Bugger off, pillock. You grotty wanking oik artless base-court apple-john. You clouted boggish foot-licking twit. You dankish clack-dish plonker. You gormless crook-pated tosser. You churlish boil-brained clotpole ponce. You cockered bum-bailey poofter. You craven dewberry pisshead cockup pratting naff. You gob-kissing gleeking flap-mouthed coxcomb. You dread-bolted fobbing beef-witted clapper-clawed flirt-gill.

You are a fiend and a coward, and you have bad breath. You are degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just for knowing you exist. I despise everything about you, and I wish you would go away.

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid, so stupid it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid.
Your writing has to be a troll.
Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know. I'm sorry. I can't go on.
This is an epiphany of stupid for me.

After this, you may not hear from me again for a while. I don't have enough strength left to deride your ignorant questions and half baked comments about unimportant trivia, or any of the rest of this drivel. Duh. The only thing worse than your logic is your manners. I have snipped away most of what you wrote, because, well... it didn't really say anything.

Your attempt at constructing a creative post was pitiful. I mean, really, stringing together a bunch of insults among a load of babbling was hardly effective... Maybe later in life, after you have learned to read, write, spell, and count, you will have more success. True, these are rudimentary skills that many of us "normal" people take for granted that everyone has an easy time of mastering. But we sometimes forget that there are "challenged" persons in this world who find these things more difficult.

If I had known, that this was your case then I would have never read your post. It just wouldn't have been "right". Sort of like parking in a handicap space. I wish you the best of luck in the emotional, and social struggles that seem to be placing such a demand on you.

I always suspected she serviced anything leftist, as long as he/she/it paid upfront, but shouldn't that read "servicing the debaters?

Washington's Other W Twins This is what happens when Wonkette buys Washingtonienne "a" drink at 6PM: We didn't get home until 1AM. The evening began at the Four Seasons and ended in a suburban Virginia farmhouse. We did not, in the end, have to buy any of our own drinks. Pictures were taken. A cell phone was lost. This morning, Mr. Wonkette made us scrambled eggs. Now, can we move on?
