I have an important announcement to share with all of you!

You may have noticed, like I have, that whenever I post something related to politics, that people FLIP THE FREAK OUT in the comments.  And I mean that in a good way.  It’s obvious that you have strong political feelings, and you know I do as well.  But after reviewing the results of the recent mockdock surveys, and taking into account the reasons you all visit The Mock Dock in the first place, I’ve decided that perhaps this isn’t the best place for those politically-driven posts.

So guess what!  I, along with alert and astute mockdocker Daisy, am excited to announce the launch of a new website we’ve started together. This website will be my outlet for ranting about the state of the union, and so those of you who enjoy my rants can come visit, and those of you who hate my rants can just stay here.  And those of you who hate my rants but want to post comments about them anyway because you like to fight with me are also welcome to visit the new site.

LET ME BE VERY CLEAR.  The Mock Dock isn’t going anywhere.  It’s going to keep on chugging along and I’m going to continue to mock all the same stuff you’re accustomed to me mocking.  And you never know, I might not be able to contain myself and I may throw a political post on here now and then just to watch everyone FLIP THE FREAK OUT again.  But our new website will be specifically devoted to politics – the lighter, mockier side of politics, but politics nonetheless. 

You know what I’ve learned from posting political stuff here? It’s just not “hip” to be a conservative anymore. So, of course the liberals elected themselves a rock-star. The alternative was the stereotypical stodgy-old white guy. Daisy and I believe that the conservative movement needs to break through that stereotype, jump into this century, and get its collective butt in gear from a technological and public relations standpoint.  Starting our new website is the only way we know how to help compete with the media’s deification of our new rockstar President.  We conservatives AREN’T all country-music-blaring, heat-packing, bible-thumping, rich WASPs with trust funds. And we think there are others out there like us – stiletto and Sephora-wearing chicks (and guys who love them) who believe in a healthy respect for government while understanding that it’s the people who are the only ones who should be responsible for giving strength to our government.

So here’s the thing. We have decided to do our part to help re-brand the conservative party by launching our new site which will freely poke fun at the political process and all of its related people and parts. Because you know me – no matter what, I’m all about the mockery. 

Mockdockers – whether you’re a liberal or conservative or anything in between, you are welcome to visit:!!!

I now return you to your regularly scheduled mocking.

    I, for one, appreciate your creation of the new site….the political stuff was getting very vicious, and that isn’t fun. I have enough in my life that isn’t fun to want to be exposed to rabid democrats….I am related to some and avoid those conversations at all costs, because, no ones opinion will be changed by the others views, they will just become more rabid. That is my opinion and I am entitled to it. As are you. Thanks.

    Well if the Fairness Doctrine ever passes, you will have to start That will suck ass.

    I am very glad to hear that you are not funding terrorists.

  • Johnny C

    You rule! Thanks, your new site is already bookmarked. You have no idea what it’s like being a conservative in northwest Washington.

  • Mockarena

    YAY! Please visit and comment often! 🙂

  • el pato

    outstanding, ladies!!

  • mseunice

    Amen, sistas!
    Dane county, WI is a midwestern pocket of liberalism gone mad!
    If you believe the locals here, only about 3 people in the country voted Republican in the last election. If you say you’re a conservative, they look at you like you have leprosy or something.
    I have appreciated that a couple of chicks about my age share similar politics to mine. Makes me feel not quite so alone out here in the “Athens of the Midwest”.

    Why do those meerkats always remind of the Socialist Democarats leadership. There’s Nancy right in the middle. Sorry I couldn’t help myself.

  • green eyed girl

    OMG! I love it!! Sipping my morning coffee w/Mockarena will now take twice as long… sweet.

  • Benoit from Ottawa

    I wonder if Buckeye Bob will comment there too?

  • rosie too

    This stiletto and Sephora wearing chick on the left is incredibly grateful as well. I don’t think it’s unfair to say that the winds of hostility blow from both directions (feel free to substitute some less awkward metaphor). I’m sure I’ll check out the new site when I’m interested in a good old political debate. But I also love the idea of a Mock Dock DMZ (Dedicated Mocking Zone) where we put aside our differences and unite for the greater good of snark. Yes, we can! Oops, sorry, it just slipped out.

    I admit it…it’s a f***ing brilliant idea. I’m in the media and all the money and juice tends to be on right leaning media platforms, “Huffington” being the recent notable exception….But it’s all in the execution, I might start hating you, be funny, but also vicous,mean and informative -in politicts conflict = entertainment. Reach out to Monica Crowely, Ann Coulter, and Laura Ingrahm-tough independent “Conservative Chicks” down with middle america who would eat this s**t up and put you on the radio and on their sites in a second, I actually think, if it’s done right, you would have a shot with Hannity as well.

    Mockerana….in a recession thinking, thinking comin up with s**t!! I love it! Go get em! Ha Ha Ha

  • Buckeye Bob

    I already have.

  • meganyore

    I love this idea!! I personally LOVE it when people get all outrageous on the comments, its makes me giggle so hard sometimes!

    But, i think this is a faboosh idea, even tho I consider myself mostly Democrat, (not one of those rabid dems, tho dont worry!) I appreciate your opinions and views and you have really good points sometimes that BOTH sides need to take into consideration. It will give you the opportunity to really vent on all the wacked up things going down….cos there is just TOO MUCH!!!
    Im happy this will give people a chance to be open minded about things or to just bugger off. :o) yay bookmark!

    bobcat – that IS me, at Christmas, with my family, screaming…..
