Your Wonkette Has a New Wonkette Publisher/Editor, For Freedom!

News

Good morning from your Wonkette editor since, oh, 2006. It has been an exciting (terrible?) six years, hasn't it? There was old what's his name, and Iraq, and the Great Recession, and then the sexy president with his singing and dancing all the time. And now your longtime editor will finally stop disappearing for months at a time and officially hand over this Important American Publication to a deserving and talented political writer/editor,Ms. Rebecca Schoenkopf. She is a feared and respected Liberal Woman, so the wingnuts will just love her (as they plot to send her to Gitmo). Also, Rebecca is a fancy book-writin' author and is famous for being "Commie Girl," the newspaper columnist who drove California Republicans insane for the OC Weekly. Wonkette.com is obviously going to become just like National Review's "The Corner," which was always the plan?


Rebecca will be running Wonkette from her Los Angeles headquarters, until she moves to D.C. (?!) or whatever. We don't know; it's not our business. (Ha ha, literally!) But your editor will be around for a while "to consult," like Rick Santorum does for the coal and vibrator corporations. And this year might be kind of interesting, with the politics?

Thank you for being part of the Wonkette family of lunatics all these years, for the emails and comments and links and Twitters and MySpaces and all the things, over all the years. It was a weird day in the summer of 2006 when Alex Pareene brought me here "as a guest editor," and I basically never left, despite constant threats and many sabbaticals. It has been fun, it has been grueling, it has been educational, and now it's time for me to follow Jesus down the Road of Mystery. Here is my Twitter, which I don't really use. Goodbye For Now; see you in the comments!

The Dumb Song Of J. Dinesh Prufrock

A quick Dear Shitferbrains for you smart kids today, in response to our recent piece on Dinesh D'Souza's continued insistence that historian Kevin M. Kruse please bitchslap him with facts again and again. It turns out we picked the wrong historian to lionize, according to "Hadding Scott," who dropped by to let us know we had foolishly referred to a mere Princeton professor instead of to the most comprehensive take-down-er of D'Souza's lies, "Hadding Scott" himself.

Among the primary results from Tuesday that we didn't report: Chris Murphy, US Senator from Connecticut, managed to hold on to the Democratic nomination for a second term. Actually, if you want to get all technical about it, he didn't win the nom Tuesday -- he'd already been nominated at the state party convention in May, and the Dem primary was cancelled since Murphy was the only one to file. Murphy's also heavily favored to win reelection this fall. The biggest question for Murphy is whether he's hoping to seek some other office in a couple years. (As if any prominent Democratic senator hasn't already mentally compared their inaugural crowd size to Trump's.)
