Noted Pundit Dok's Girlfriend has died. She was a sweet, sweet lady whom he brought to the dark side. I'll let Dok put her commenter name here if it's appropriate, but you knew her and she was your and our friend. Be extra nice to Dok today please, as if you all aren't every day. [Dok here: Thank you so much, Rebecca. In the comments, which we do not allow, she was "Shastakoala," and she occasionally worried that people would mistakenly think the pun was how she thought "cola" is spelled. Then I'd remind her this is Wonkette after all.]
We love you all.
Rebecca Schoenkopf is the owner, publisher, and editrix of Wonkette. She is a nice lady, SHUT UP YUH HUH. She is very tired with this fucking nonsense all of the time, and it would be terrific if you sent money to keep this bitch afloat. She is on maternity leave until 2033.
