WONKETTE NOW LESS WONKY August 30, 2006 kim lien Many Posts 0 It’s Laynette! Posted by Tim B. on 08/30/2006 at 12:56 PM As a crime-politics-military reporter, Layne quietly collected paychecks from many newspapers in places such as the scumbag capital of the Earth (San Diego) and former Nazi lands including Slovakia and the Balkans. He covered the 2000 presidential conventions and riots for an obscure academic publication. San Diego is the scumbag capital of the Earth?! The 200 presidential conventions and riots?? What riots? Who is this person and what the hell is he/she talking about? Posted by Kyda Sylvester on 2006 08 30 at 01:11 PM • permalink That “rioting for an obscure academic publication” gig sounds pretty sweet. Posted by PW on 2006 08 30 at 01:21 PM • permalink WTF? Is this some sort of joke? Oh, it’s Wonkette, the land of unintentional self-parody. Posted by Spiny Norman on 2006 08 30 at 02:55 PM • permalink Wonkette is all guys these days. It’s like Bosom Buddies. Posted by Jim Treacher on 2006 08 30 at 03:08 PM • permalink Well, at least Ken doesn’t have a fixation on anal sex. That’s gotta be an improvement. Posted by The_Real_JeffS on 2006 08 30 at 03:30 PM • permalink San Diego isn’t nearly as full of scumbags since this south end of a northbound jackass left town. He obviously hasn’t been to San Francisco. Posted by saltydog on 2006 08 30 at 04:43 PM • permalink Not only has he been there, but one of his novels is all about how much it sucks. Posted by Jim Treacher on 2006 08 30 at 04:56 PM • permalink “A few days’ escape from the constant apocalypse of San Francisco is good for the soul.” “San Francisco is truly the foulest place on Earth.” Posted by Jim Treacher on 2006 08 30 at 05:02 PM • permalink Jeff …at least Ken doesn’t have a fixation on anal sex. God let’s hope not. Posted by 68W40 on 2006 08 30 at 06:18 PM • permalink I don’t get it. Is this guy announcing his intentions of going after Fisk’s “King of the Idiots” crown, or something? Or did I misread that Wonkette piece? Posted by Grimmy on 2006 08 30 at 06:19 PM • permalink Grimmy. Dude. It’s Wonkette. The question is “why read?” not “misread?” Posted by richard mcenroe on 2006 08 30 at 08:07 PM • permalink Come for the Corvids. Stay for the refreshing lack of anal sex fixation! Posted by Carl H on 2006 08 30 at 09:36 PM • permalink #‘s 6 and 7, HA! Seems to me that Mr. Layne takes these foul things with him when he travels. Was that post supposed to be a biographical sketch? Doesn’t think much of himself, does he? I’m not terribly impressed, either. Posted by saltydog on 2006 08 30 at 10:24 PM • permalink Kyda, I take it you mean the 2000 convention, not the one in 200. I was with Layne, at the riots outside the Dem convention in LA. OK, maybe not riot…perhaps a really big melee. I’ll pass on the anal commments but please do buy those pretty Corvids albums. Read carefully but not seriously. Posted by jimlowney on 2006 08 30 at 10:28 PM • permalink Thanks for the referral, jimlowney. I think. Anywho, I read Wonkette for a while in her “prime”, but dropped the blog as I couldn’t decide if Wonkette was writing sordid sexed up gossip about politicians, or sordid gossip about anal-fixated politicians…..and how much was tongue in *cough* cheek *cough*. Good luck to Ken! Posted by The_Real_JeffS on 2006 08 30 at 11:45 PM • permalink Page 1 of 1 pages Commenting is not available in this weblog entry.
