Why Is Harry Reid Giving His Monkey Friends All The Good Drugs?

News

By all rightsSharron Angle's Twitter feed ought to be a nonstop stream of hilarity, full of death threats and theological lunacy and pleas for friendship, but in practice whichever intern has been put in charge of it is heroically clinging to sanity, mostly just posting links to press releases and Angle's occasional appearances before the lamestream media. This right here is pretty good, though! Why did Harry Reid vote in favor of giving cocaine to monkeys? Doesn't he know that this is an issue specifically reserved to the states, by the 10th amendment?


In case you even wondered for a single second, the monkeys in question were research subjects in a study at Wake Forest about cocaine addiction that was in part funded by the stimulus bill. This research was highlighted in a report that John McCain and Jim Coburn wrote about wasteful stimulus spending, since the only thing those guys hate more than science is paying for science. Presumably someone in one of their offices forwarded it to the Washington Examiner, and then Sharron Angle's Twitter-intern ("Twintern"?) saw it on the Internet. And this is the best part of the story, because you can imagine this poor person, sitting around the Angle campaign office, bored, so bored, clicking on links, trying to feed the Twitter beast, and suddenly he or she sees "Harry Reid" and "monkey" and "cocaine" in the same sentence, and she or he says, "Oh my God, best Twitter link of the day! Of the week!" And then the afternoon got a little brighter. (If you think your Wonkette editor is feeling something of a kinship for this person right now, you are correct.)

Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug ... He used sarcasm. He knew all the tricks: dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes and satire.

Yr Wonkette is no stranger to the double-edged weapon of sarcasm, we'll admit. OR WILL WE? It's part of our postmodern toolkit, with which we seek to undermine patriotism, faith, the free market, the family, and ultimately America itself. Duh. But we would never be so naive as to think we have a monopoly on irony and sarcasm, oh no, far from it. This week, we dip into the sludge of deletia for some brilliant examples of cutting rightwing wit turned back on us, with devastating results. Hope you're not all TRIGGERED so much you have to go find a SAFE SPACE, libs!

This weekend, hundreds of people are gathering in Denver, Colorado for the 2018 Flat Earth Conference -- two whole days of people with suspiciously Andy Warhol-like hair yelling "Where's the curve?!?" and talking about ice walls -- and we are missing out! Flat earthers are kind of the best of all conspiracy theorists, because aside from a few fascists and anti-Semites in the mix, they are mostly harmless cranks who just want to feel like they are way smarter than all of the scientists. As far as I know, believing in a Flat Earth, while stupid, has never hurt anyone -- which is honestly kind of refreshing these days!
