What a whore. And by that I mean she has sex with random men in exchange for money.

This article reads like a middle-school newspaper's gossip column. If there was a legitimate problem here, the writing has murdered it.

that was a very confusing "article". Can everyone involved in this story lose please?

THIS

Near as I can tell, some gossip blogger named Betsy Rothstein pissed off some PR person named Wendy Gordon and is being sued.

Ms Gordon ^ ^ ^

That's the dress this bimbo was whining about? I've seen more revealing outfits at office christmas parties.

I tried to read the article, and I couldn't find anything in it remotely related to politics. Methinks this was posted to the wrong tab, and in its proper home there might be an audience that knows or cares who any of these people are.

More than likely, Wendy got some wood from Betsy's beau. It's that kind of cat fight.

A story about a gaggle of high strung and self-involved women using appropriate sobriquets in reference to each other.

The headline is actually true if the Ms. Gordon is in fact "Harold & Maude" star Ruth Gordon.

That lady had such a warm pussy.

I literally thought I was suffering from a blunt-force trauma to the head after reading only a couple sentences of this "article".

1) The author has GOT to go to school and get an education in ... I dunno ... farking writing.
2) Who the hell are the people in the article? This is the politics tab and I've never heard a single name listed.
 
2013-01-18 07:32:31 PM
From what I could follow of that, this is some high-school level bullshiat. Someone needs to grow the fark up.
 
2013-01-18 07:46:45 PM
That column reads like other columns I've read that are written by women. Or how women talk.
 
2013-01-18 07:53:18 PM
Ah, so it's not just me. Sense, it made none.

Lackofname: That column reads like other columns I've read that are written by women. Or how women talk.


Nope. That's how women write when they want to be Charles Bukowski when they graduate from highschool.

Still, the whole thing is a medium-amusing internet rant, like a good rant on craigslist.
 
2013-01-18 08:09:38 PM
WONKETTE is supposed to be read as if you're talking to a hormonal teenager of either gender. It's a strange niche form of snark/parody but I like it!
 
2013-01-18 08:10:21 PM
Sometimes you just want to be a whining smarmy biatch.

Alphax: Ah, so it's not just me. Sense, it made none.


My only takeaways here were "She mad" and "double bagging now refers to the use of two condoms rather than an actual bag over someone's head".

Probably the worst article I've ever read at Wonkette.
 
2013-01-18 09:01:42 PM
Rebecca Schoenkopf destroys any reason for me to take her seriously with all of the ad hominem. We get it, the woman said bad things about you. You could at least be classier and write the facts and keep the childish insults to yourself. Professional reporting isn't unedited high school newspaper rants last time I checked.

No, I don't even care what your political opponents say or what you think of them, your article is trash that looks like it was written by a seventeen-year-old queen bee with an axe to grind.
 
2013-01-18 09:55:01 PM
I only wish I could catch Sean Hannity giving that woman head so I could face punch him while coont punching her.

"Double bagging" has been used to refer to the counterproductive practice off using two condoms for a while.

I laughed at the article. Yeah, it was catty, but the snark in the complaint was hilarious.
 
2013-01-18 11:55:41 PM
Wasn't there a time way back when that Wonkette didn't suck and was an interesting source for political news? What happened? Or am I thinking of another site?

Tak the Hideous New Girl: Why oh why can't my boss get such cases!

Who could possibly draft a complaint like that with a straight face?

In case anyone cares, and probably nobody does, the grounds for this "case" have to do with "slander per se". Normally, the media is protected from libel/slander suits by the First Amendment unless the plaintiff can prove they acted with malice or "reckless disregard for the truth," and the plaintiff would have to prove she suffered actual monetary damages, except in cases of slander per se. To show slander per se, the plantiff has to show the defendant made defamatory statements about her that:
1. would have harmed her business or professional reputation,
2. alleged she had a "loathsome disease"
3. is guilty of a felony, OR
4. is "unchaste". (These statutes are really old and probably got laughed out of court when Louella Parsons and Hedda Hopper were using them against each other)

So this hag dredged up the old laws for slander and is accusing a gossip blogger of calling her a sex maniac and having a "loathsome disease" (aka an STD) in a lame attempt to get a libel case out of it. I'd love to be in court when the judge tries to stop laughing long enough to say "Case dismissed."

I normally like Wonkette, but Rebecca went way up her own ass on this one.

I'm a guy who doesn't read tabloids and what is this?
 
2013-01-19 06:10:05 AM
It's a Wonkette column, and Wonkette is, ostensibly, a politics blog; therefore, people trying to shut down Wonkette for expressing its opinion in Wonkette's particular way is an attack on a politics blog (and it really is). That's why it's in the politics tab.

As for why it went green, that's the real farking mystery. I'm not sure. Wonkette is something I read occasionally when I've run out of things to read and I'm trying to stave off the inevitable depression that flows from reading professional authors that have done something with their lives, but it's definitely its own style of thing. I'm going to guess that a modmin likes Wonkette or found it funny or likes pussy jokes. OR! Perhaps it's part of the Fark Modmin's right-wing conspiracy to justify greening twenty Daily Blaze articles, claim a lack of bias, and say 'both sides are bad.'

/It's probably not that.
 
2013-01-19 06:15:40 AM
I've seen Wonkette many times over the years.. I've never seen it that unreadable.

Then again, I read it more often when Ana Marie Cox was still there.

This. I am liberal, but greenlights here from decidedly liberal blogs and collumns usually seem to entail the authors laughing at the failures of conservitards. As compared to conservitard blogs which are usually just lies, racism, sexism, or calls for secession.

I'm not saying women are incoherent babblers, but... I could shiat alphabet soup that makes more sense than that column did.
 
2013-01-19 08:35:39 AM
Whenever I wonder why women haven't been more prominent in business, politics and other serious matters, I remember this sort of arbitrary nonsense.

Hueg_Redd: that was a very confusing "article". Can everyone involved in this story lose please?


Go ahead and get on twitter and say that. The "editor" of wonkette will come at you.

Wonkette is definitely writing on a level that assumes that you are familiar with all the jokes, so basically if you're in their office, you're probably going to enjoy it. Otherwise, you're going to either pretend you like it or be called an idiot for not getting it.

I think this is on the Politics tab as a reminder that women ruling the world wouldn't be the utopia that some people imagine.

It's DC gossip. And like the old saying goes, DC is Hollywood for ugly people.

"Ms. Gordon does not emit some type of unusual heat between her legs that would cause a wax figure to melt."

I think that qualifies as a superpower. The uniform and theme would be interesting.

It's either really good or really bad. The really good is fewer and farther between.

SoundOfOneHandWanking: I thought double-bagging meant she was ugly


Nope. Using two condoms at once, either because you're a two pump chump or for added protection against disease (which didn't actually work. Using two condoms increases the amount of fiction, increasing the likelihood that both condoms will fail).
