Wonkette Week In Review: Look At This Stuff In Your Stockings
It's the Saturday portion of your 4-day weekend, America! Time to look back and see what you may have missed during all that last-minute shopping and/or Warmaking On Christmas. And so, here are the ten most-shared stories of our somewhat abbreviated week, from the Facebook. Don't see a favorite here? Well ain't you a picky one who didn't click "share" enough! A little late for regrets now, isn't it? Also, what were you thinking when you got that tattoo? But yes, do "share" the stories you like, that they mayst be seen by all and bringeth us pageviews, amen.
10: To honor the finale of The Colbert Report, we brought you, one more time, Stephen Colbert's speech at the 2006 White House Correspondents' Dinner. People shared it all over again, because it was awesome.
9: Darrell Issa released the final report of his committee's investigation into Very Bad Things at the IRS, which found no proof of an Obama administration vendetta against conservative groups, but managed to act properly scandalized anyway.
8: A bunch of retired cops in California were treated to a witty "satirical" song about "Dead, Dead Michael Brown," and it was comedy gold. No, wait, not gold, that other stuff. Toxic sludge.
7: We learned about the CIA agent who personally helped make the torture program even more awful and ineffective than it already was. Incompetent through and through, she's now in a top level job and faces no consequences. War on terror: won!
6: Turns out that New York's Finest are so good at racial profiling that 24 out of 25 black cops said they'd been racially profiled or targeted for harassment while out of uniform. That's probably Obama's fault, too.
5: Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani found the prime suspect in the murders of two NYPD cops: Barack Obama, who has been stirring up hatred of cops by suggesting they don't need to tear gas people all the time.
4: A New Mexico utility doesn't want dirty hippies polluting its nice coal-powered grid with a lot of filthy solar-generated electricity.
3: Pope Francis yelled at a bunch of priests and cardinals for acting more like gossipy junior high schoolers than ministers of Christ. Silly Pope, that's Congress you're thinking of!
2: The New York Times called for the prosecution of those responsible for torture, and those responsible for torture may even have noted the editorial's existence for a moment.
1: The prosecutor in the shooting of Mike Brown admitted that the Ferguson grand jury heard testimony that he knew to be completely fictitious, but justified it, because since when is a prosecutor supposed to actually build a case for prosecution?
Also, not among the top shared posts, but we wouldn't want you to miss it: A Dear Shitferbrains comment about Jews encroaching on "Christian Christmas" that we have every reason to believe will become a Holiday Tradition at Your Wonkette.
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
