WHAT DID WE SAY? Ah, we remember it well, because it was just Friday! We had just heard news that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had undergone surgery to remove two malignant nodes on one of her lungs, and everybody was like OMG DO NOT DIE, JUSTICE GINSBURG, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DIE! PLEASE ACCEPT AS MANY OF MY LUNGS AS YOU WOULD LIKE AND ALSO TELL ME YOU'LL BE OK!

And we said that sure, it's scary to hear that news, especially for the justice herself, since it's her health we are talking about after all. We also said that she is a tough woman, she's healthier than you are (fact), and that she would be back to bench pressing YOUR DAD within days.

Were we right? Pffffffft, when is Wonkette not right?


Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is up and working as she recuperates from cancer surgery.

A spokeswoman for the court, Kathy Arberg, also says that Ginsburg remained in New York at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center on Sunday.

That's right, RBG has turned her room at Sloan Kettering into JUDGE'S CHAMBERS, so she can kick Trump's ass from there. Despite how Bill O'Reilly was giggle-jizzing himself on Twitter over the possibility of RBG dying -- in the most concern-troll-y way possible -- she is already back at it, because fuck two little dumb tiny cancers that just got removed from her body, she will smash them with her judge's gavel just like she did her previous cancers, and then she will bench press YOUR DAD. Hell, she voted to uphold a federal judge's ruling on Trump's cruel and stupid new asylum policy FROM HER BED.

As the AP notes, the court doesn't meet again until January 7. We assume RBG will get out of the hospital before then, run several marathons, climb Mount Everest, retrieve a treasure chest from the bottom of the ocean and rearrange her junk drawer YES WE SAID REARRANGE HER JUNK DRAWER, the one with the rubber bands and all the Taco Bell sauces, by January 6, so she can go to bed early and be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on the 7th.

Or if her doctors say she's still "recovering" and can't leave the hospital, she'll probably just make the whole entire Supreme Court come to her and then it will be a contest to see whether Clarence Thomas or Brett Kavanaugh gets banned first from the hospital for sexually harassing nurses. (Our money is on Clarence.)

Anyway, the point is that RBG is going to be fine and you are going to be fine and we are going to be fine and let's all have a Merry Fucking The Holidays, THE END.

And we guess this is your open thread, because you probably got a couple things to do, maybe, we don't know, so HAPPY CHRISTMAS, GOODBYE.

Hooray, it's time for yet another dispatch from Fox News's big fun week of failure. (No, we mean even more failure than usual.) While all of Twitter is being annoying and talking incessantly about nothing but Bran and Daenerys and Carl and Peg or whoever they are, we have been (ignoring it and) focusing on all Fox's sadness, starting with Pete Buttigieg's town hall, where he called Fox News a piece of shit to its face. Then we laughed and laughed at Fox News idiot Pete Hegseth, who is sending lots of begging to today's college graduates, that they might immediately get dropped on their heads and forget all their education, so they might grow up to be the Fox News viewers of the future.

Oh, and we haven't even had a chance to LOL at the epic hilarity of Steve Doocy trying to do man-on-the-street interviews in Midtown Manhattan, shoving the mic into the faces of New Yorkers who literally don't care if he goes and plays in traffic. That was fun!

But the point of this post is that we have finally learned what makes at least some Fox News viewers tick, and it is that Tucker Carlson "laughs like a girl." That is not us saying that, that is a Fox News fan lady telling the Washington Post's Erik Wemple why she loves Tucker Carlson so much.

Old White Guys Try To Explain Abortion

Throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It's your Sunday show rundown!

popular

Michael is out, so I'm taking over your Sunday Show Rundown. This week everyone was talking about those awful abortion laws worming their way through state legislatures. As usual, most of the men were tripping on their dicks while trying to talk about vag. Luckily, there's enough women around to ladysplain things.

Bernie Sanders went on Meet the Press for the first time in FOREVER and played his greatest hits for all the kids. Sanders criticized Joe Biden's environmental policy (which is literally just "beat Trump"), stating that it wasn't "good enough." Sanders is right! (NO FIGHTING.)

SANDERS: Beating Trump is not good enough. You have to beat the fossil fuel industry, you have to take on all the forces of the status quo who do not want to move this country to energy efficiency and sustainable energy.

But then Chuck Todd asked Bernie a loaded question about women getting "sex-selective" abortions and the whole interview went off the rails. Bernie struggled to answer the dumbass question and came across looking stupid despite having spent the better part of the last week in Alabama railing against abortion bans.
