    Wonkette Goes After Trig Palin Again, Again

    Wonkette Goes After Trig Palin Again, Again

    On July 28, 2009, I posted about the obsession at Wonkette, a widely read liberal website, with attacking Trig Palin, Wonkette Goes After Trig Palin Again.  The author of the Wonkette article which was the focus of the 2009 post was Ken Layne, the co-owner of Wonkette after Gawker Media let Wonkette loose.

    Now Wonkette is at it again, in an even more crude manner, this time authored by 2010 Georgetown grad  Jack Stuef, Greatest Living American: A Children’s Treasury of Trig Crap On His Birthday.

    Replete with PhotoShops of Trig next to a pulsating pole dancer (image right), and links to videos in which various Democrats mock Trig in profanity-laced tirades, Stuef has a good laugh with text such as this:

    Today is the day we come together to celebrate the snowbilly grifter’s magical journey from Texas to Alaska to deliver to the America the great gentleman scholar Trig Palin. Is Palin his true mother? Or was Bristol? (And why is it that nobody questions who the father is? Because, either way, Todd definitely did it.) It doesn’t matter. What matters is that we are privileged to live in a time when we can witness the greatest prop in world political history…

    What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded.

    Wonkette is no fly-by-night outfit.  Here is how it describes itself on its Advertising page: is a top 5,000 site and No. 63 Technorati blog that reaches over 1 million monthly unique visitors, 88% of which are in the U.S. The site is wildly popular among a mostly male, very affluent and well educated adult crowd. The typical visitor reads Gawker and subscribes to the Economist and Vanity Fair.

    Winner of three consecutive Bloggies and a regular source of outrageous quotes and jokes for the political class, Wonkette is Washington’s non-stop campaign cocktail party.

    Wonkette is a sick publication.  But it sure is popular with the liberal D.C. crowd.

    Wonkette goes after *everybody*. This is rather like those who love South Park right up until they do an episode that's suddenly over the line. Of course "over the line" translates as "on a topic I care about."

    Boo. Hoo.

    Tlaloc said, "Of course 'over the line' translates as 'on a topic I care about.'"

    What part of the topic of "innocent child" do you not care about?

    Actually Tlaloc, I've laughed at all kinds of tasteless things, some of which came at the expense of persons/denominations/classes that found my sympathy.

    I doubt I'm speaking just for myself, when I say my litmus test is that the material, tasteless or not, must be F-U-N-N-Y. Now in this case, it's Wonkette (and you too, maybe) that has suffered the confusion…treating something as funny that, in fact, isn't. Because it happens to poke fun at the "right" people.

    That isn't South Park humor. That is a mental illness.

    I have to comment on the stupidity of Wonkette writers: Is Bristol the mother of Trig? Only if you do not know how to count when it comes to pregnancy!!

    Bristol Palin gave birth to her son in December. Count backwards and you will find that Bristol was 2 months pregnant when Trig was born…..

    In other words these people are just plain stupid!!!!
