Patriotism Fails Local Football Team


Last night's Redskins opener was a tasteful, sober celebration of the quiet dignity of American patriotism -- just kiddin'! There was flags-a-plenty and Lee Greenwood on the loudspeakers!

Distributing flags to some 90,000 "greater Washington area" football fans who are rabid to start a promising season on the anniversary of 9/11 is a recipe for kitschy patriotism of the highest order. Intern Nick documented the vigorous flag wavin', but had to end the recording before the spontaneous "U-S-A, U-S-A" chants began, because some things shouldn't be shown even on the internet.

Despite having God and Country on their side, the Indiginous Americans lost by 3 to the Nordic Sailors.

Yr Wonkette has been getting quite a few visits from trolls lately, although most of the infestations have been incredibly tiresome and not at all worth discussing here. We're talking, like, not even as good as ol' Turgid Love Muscle Guy. Come to think of it, we haven't seen him in a while; hope he's OK. At least health-wise.

In 2006, Bob Casey Jr., then the Pennsylvania state treasurer, defeated Rick Santorum and took his seat in the US Senate; presumably only after having it steam cleaned. Not that Casey wanted anything much to do with Dan Savage, the columnist who had helpfully made the alternative definition of "Santorum" one of the best demonstrations of the power of trolling for the prior three years. But in '06, Casey's campaign actually declined a donation from Savage; Casey's finance director thanked him, but suggested maybe Savage could give the money to a group working against Santorum so Casey wouldn't get flak for taking the donation. That was back when Dems were happy to talk about civil unions but frightened of gay marriage, and Casey just plain wussed out on the chance to bring a "weeks-long debate about feces, lube, and assfucking" to the Senate race, as then-Wonket Dave Weigel put it. But Bob Casey has come rather a long way since then, and he now supports marriage equality. He might still be a bit shy about a full-on embrace of buttsechs talk, however.
