Walnuts?

Along with FiveThirtyEight.com, one of my big finds during this campaign has been Wonkette. It's like the Gawker of the politics world, and it's pretty consistently hysterical. Even the people who comment seem to be exceptionally funny (and intelligent), which I didn't think was allowed for people who comment on internet sites.

Anyways, there has been this one ongoing joke on Wonkette which I've really never been sure about. It started back during the primary days, all based on this video, which might be more creepy than humorous.



If you go to their site, they literally will refer to McCain as walnuts in almost every post. I don't think I'm for it. What do YOU think?

Ah, I recently discovered wonkette, too. Mainly because it's the source of pretty much every link that devan sends me.

But I just don't know what to think anymore. This video creeped me out.

I've stayed away from it specifically BECAUSE devan always posts stuff from it. no offense... actually, you can take offense to that, devan.

If I may, let me take off my assistant's skirt and put on my Barbra Streisand in 'The Prince of Tides' ass-masking therapist pantsuit. -- and throw in my two cents.

1) wonkette is funny, but as devan points out, all their jokes are caps lock and "times infinity". it gets old after a certain point.

2) the genius who wrote for them now writes for gawker, which is one of those hate to love to hate to love blogs that i read compulsively.

3) BLOG WAR

My main reaction to that video is to think about John McCain, then prostates, then (inevitably) John McCain's prostate. I can't help how my mind works, but I do know that I don't want to think about John McCain's prostate.
