It says much about you that you believe myth receives automatic respect? Myth that disrespects people of color, women, children, and is used to wage war and to control others? To demonize independent women? Criminalize the poor? And how would you know "nobody" pays attention to Wonkette's opinion or those expressed in the-not-permitted-comments? You don't appear to have a clue that this is a political comedy website. And like most republicans you cannot grasp parody-snark-irony-sarcasm. So please try your sanctimonious sermon on others.

President Obama nailed it with his, (paraphrasing) "They think they can make Putin tremble with merely a glance, and China roll onto it's back by just being elected, yet they're complaining of being bullied by CNBC mods."

And Biden. They could Pay Per View that, and still get the biggest viewership ever. Although I don't see a single Republican with a vagina strong enough to actually show up.

I live in a red state, and they will literally vote for a monkey if it has an "R" behind it's name. All they have to do is scream about the "liberal media" and their "gotcha questions" and the trained seals will sit there and clap and nod. UPDATE: Ben Carson is now neck and neck with Hillary Clinton. Let that sink into your brain for a few minutes.

Oh, look, here's someone who wasn't paying attention.

I'll assume you may be referring to this post when you mentioned a "non-apologetic apology"? I'll beg to differ on the sincerity of that apology, since I was in the chatcave at the time. It was sincere: to recap, Rebecca, our current editor, was incensed that a former Wonkette writer made a degrading joke about Malkin on Twitter and then tried to claim that it was OK, since it was a โ€œclassic Wonkette reference.โ€ Maybe under the previous owners, not now.

Rebecca's anger was genuine, not least of all because she had to personally apologize to Malkin, who truly is a despicable person, for a slur that not even a despicable person should have to put up with. God knows there's plenty of relevant things to despise Michelle Malkin for; her ethnicity shouldn't enter into it.

Sorry you're still mad at Wonkette, but if you think that our condemnation of Asian stereotypes in that column wasn't real, you're mistaken. We banned some commenters who thought it was the height of wit to keep the ping-pong jokes going. And we'll continue to delete comments making that tired, offensive joke.

I am a proud Fabian thank you and it was never a mask. I was referring to a past comment....I rarely agree with Ms Malkin regarding politics but some lines should never be crossed talking about a woman. my wife is Korean and we have heard these comments so I do not let it pass.....

Nah, then they would have to admit they approve of something the UN does.

If the RNC wanted to have a substantive debate maybe they shouldn't have a mini bus full of fucknuts running for president. Maybe find a real candidate who can speak to the issues instead of having his/her nutsack get a tongue bath?

Has anyone demanded that only the green M&Ms should be allowed in their dressing rooms?
