Wonkette Editor 'Jim Newell' Leaving To Type About Politics Somewhere Else

News

AHEM. [Turning third-person voice off for first time ever.] I come with a "Tuesday Night News Dump" that will be a great source of joy to those of you who have put up with my lies for more than 2.5 years: I am leaving you people, my beloved readers, to type about politics for another Internet blog. The blog is called RedState. No just kidding, it's Gawker.


Yes, it's true. After replacing Alex Pareene at Wonkette in 2007, I will now replace... Alex Pareene... at Gawker's politics slot, which he left very recently. As long as I keep blatantly copying his style, I should have steady employment for life, as he is very talented.

I am not sure when my last day at Wonkette will be -- either at the end of this week or early next week. YOU WILL BE THE FIRST TO KNOW, unless someone else is.

What else... not much else, right now. I'm very excited about the new job! But it's damn near paralyzing to think about leaving Wonkette.

This is good news for John McCain.

The president of the United States called a black woman a "dog" on Twitter Tuesday morning. It is common for folks who pride themselves on their supposed rational "level-headedness" to insist that Donald Trump's Twitter antics are part of some three-dimensional chess-like machinations intended to "distract" us from the Mueller investigation. But despite what Trump might think about my genetic stock, I'm capable of maintaining more than one competing thought in my head.

Sure, there's Russian collusion out the wazoo. Yes, immigrant children are still separated from their parents because of the Trump administration's cruel policies. But I also think whenever we dismiss something Trump does that would be a major story in any other presidency with a mammal chief executive, we help normalize this repulsive behavior.

I've mentioned before that every time Trump whips out his racist bullhorn, the "level-headed" brigade rapidly responds with examples of Trump also being an asshat to white guys and won't someone please think of them? "Doesn't Trump frequently call people dogs? He likes to take a Michael Vick theme to his personal insults." Charles M. Blow, who is more dedicated than I, looked into this claim, and it doesn't appear to be true.
