Ask Wonkette: ETA?

We've been getting a lot of questions a long these lines:


Just before I run off to a three martini lunch, I need to clarify --  Ms. Wonkette is gone for good?  Ms. Wonkette will be coming back?  Ms. Wonkette will be visiting from time to time? 
First of all: We sincerely hope that the absence of clarity on this question did not interrupt or deter you from drinking. As for your questions:

1. Ms. Wonkette is not gone for good.

2. She will be coming back in about a month.

3. She is visiting right now and plans to be more conscientious about that in the near future. (We heard Carlos Watson say something "podcasting" which sounds like lots of fun. And we totally heard it from him first!)

Ms. Wonkette also talks about herself in the third person after her third martini and we all wish you very well on making it to the fourth. Wait, who said that? Bartender, another round for me and my friend here...

See if our double vision has kicked in yet; inquiries to .

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
