Is Rudy Giuliani drinking that Just for Men hair dye? What is going on with Grandpa America's Mayor's hair? And what nonsense is he dogwhistling through his lockjaw now?

I've decided I'm not going to go to the Ukraine. I'm not going to go because I've decided I'm walking into a group of people who are enemies of the president. In some cases enemies of the United States. In one case, an already convicted person who has been found to be involved in assisting with the 2016 election.

JFC, he's really putting all his chips on the PAUL MANAFORT WUZ FRAMED argument. An American jury sent Paul Manafort to jail for bringing in millions of untaxed dollars from Ukrainian oligarchs, but somehow it is no fair for Ukrainians to publicize Manafort's grift. Ipso facto hocus pocus, the Mueller investigation was illegal? Plus, also, somethingsomething Joe Biden. Clearly we picked the wrong day to quit snorting Poligrip. Unlike Rudy Giuliani!

Okay, let's see if we can derpsplain it all together, since this Ukrainium One lie isn't going away.


In 2016, Ukraine was trying to pick up the pieces after Putin's puppet Viktor Yanukovych looted the treasury and fled to Russia after being booted out of power. Democratic activists said, Hey wasn't Paul Manafort involved in all kinds of pro-Russia fuckery in Ukraine? And Serhiy Leshchenko, a member of Ukraine's parliament who was on an anti-corruption crusade, answered Hell, yeah! Check out the federal prosecutor's website for documents proving that Trump's campaign manager was dirty! A court recently declared that the information was "wrongly" published, and faulted Leshchenko for mentioning said public information during the 2016 election. (He says the current Ukrainian government is just trying to curry favor with the Trump administration. Your Wonkette is not in a position to make a judgment, although "wrongful mentioning" is not a crime we learned about in law school.) But Giuliani, who went on to call out Leshchenko by name, is lying out his ass when he says that he was "convicted" of "assisting with the 2016 election."

Last week, Giuliani announced his intention to take a field trip to Ukraine to meet with representatives of Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky to tell them how excited the US president is to hear about evil Ukrainian prosecutors setting up poor, innocent Paul Manafort, HINT HINT. Not that he's pressuring Ukraine to launch a fake inquiry into Joe Biden's son and drag it out through 2020. But you know, Rudy is just saying, it would be a shame if Donald Trump got pissed off and left Ukraine to the predations of its rapacious eastern neighbor.

The problem is, the incoming Zelensky government is desperately trying to stay out of American electoral politics. They do not want to get crosswise with the Trump administration, and they sure as hell don't want to shit the bed with Joe Biden or whoever might beat Trump in 2020. So they'll take the meeting with Rudy and let him flap his yap at them, sure. But Zelensky ran on an anti-corruption platform, and he's not about to sign Ukraine's federal prosecutors up to carry water for the Trump 2020 campaign. Also, too, Serhiy Leschchenko is a prominent Zelensky backer. So, naturally, in Rudy's rancid meat cranium, that means he was being SET UP by those wily Ukrainians.

That did not happen. And we've already debunked this shit Rudy is flogging about Joe Biden and the rest of our Western allies pushing out a corrupt Ukrainian prosecutor in 2016, supposedly to benefit his son Hunter. TWICE. The investigation into Hunter Biden's client Mykola Zlochevsky had gone dormant in 2015, and the Obama administration pressed the UK to investigate Zlochevsky on multiple occasions. But once again, big thanks, New York Times, for helping Rudy launder this nonsense into the mainstream. (Oh, look, Ken Vogel was working this Hillary-and-Ukraine-are-the-real-collusion angle two years ago at Politico. Cool, cool.)

Hey, who remembers that fun time in 2018 when the Ukrainian parliament voted to eighty-six an investigation into Paul Manafort's ratfuckery in Ukraine five minutes before getting some shiny, new anti-tank missiles from the US government? WE DO. Pretty amazing that the Ukrainian prosecutors decided to re-open the investigation into Hunter Biden's client Mykola Zlochevsky this March right before Joe Biden entered the presidential race, huh?

Go on, President Flopsweat. Tell the nice people at Politico how you're going to sic the Justice Department on Joe Biden.

Well, I haven't spoken to [Bill Barr] about it. But certainly it is a very big issue and we'll see what happens. I have not spoken to him about it. Would I speak to him about it? I haven't thought of that. I mean, you're asking me a question I just haven't thought of. Certainly, it would be an appropriate thing to speak about. But I have not done that as of yet. It could be a very big -- it could be a very big situation. Of course, because he's a Democrat, it's about one 1/100 the size of the fact that if he were Republican, it would be a lot bigger.

Are you freaking out yet?

No? Here, watch Rudy liesplain to the Fox lady about Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden framing George Papadopoulos in the Ukraine with the Dodgy Dossier.

Last week, Yr Dok Zoom talked a little bit about his damn dissertation, which looked at "Wabbit Literacy," the weird thing where we sometimes learn about the world from parodies and jokes long before we ever encounter the original stuff -- like learning about opera from cartoons. More than one person in the comments (which Wonkette does not allow and yet, like life, you find a way) mentioned they were disappointed, as kids, to learn that while roadrunners are real birds, the actual critter looks nothing like this:

Which is not to say that real roadrunners are the least bit disappointing, as animals go, because they're freaking incredible. Yes, even if they don't actually leave lines of flame down the center line of desert highways and go "Meep! Meep!" But they can sprint up to 20 miles per hour, which is faster than you, albeit slower than a real coyote's top speed. Also, yes, real coyotes are among the predators what eat roadrunners, which is why the wily birds adopted the evolutionary strategy of running right through fake tunnels coyotes paint on the sides of mountains.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."
