Glossary of Terms: A Guide to Wonkette

It's been suggested that some readers may not be familiar with all of the people, places, and things referenced here on Wonkette. It's been suggested that this lack of familiarity may deprive readers of the precious "funny" we try hard to produce here; or, worse, readers may stop reading (turning them from "readers" into "fuckwads"). With this in mind, we present this guide to Wonkette's frequently referenced terms:

· Broder, David: Old guy people say is the dean of something or other. We think it's the vocational advising division of St. Alban's. [Wash Post]

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
