Wonkette Writers: Please Read This
I'm a professional comedy writer, and I want to give you some advice. I know it's not easy finding the right range of glib. Your founder has moved on to Time Magazine and maybe you're feeling a little lost.
The recent bit entitled, "John Edwards announces that his slowly dying campaign will not be rushed by his slowly dying wife" was not funny. At the core of all writing, there is an underlying assumption that whatever you're reading was written by a human being. Even when I see the sickest possible stuff, I never wonder if it was written by a machine or perhaps an alien blogger. There is something about this that is so devoid of even the basic spark of the lowest of the low-lifes that it makes me wonder about your humanity. I've seen the original Wonkette on Imus and she seemed intelligent and amusing. You're not doing her or anyone else any favors writing this.
