Americans are scared, and they feel like things are completely out of control, and Bill O'Reilly is ON IT. You see, this Politico poll found that, in the most contested states in the upcoming midterms, 2/3 of voters said America "has lost control of its major challenges." Huh. So people being bombarded nonstop with campaign ads about ISIS and Ebola feel like the nation is losing its grip? Can't imagine why.


And yet, even though Americans are so uneasy, respondents also said they were slightly more likely to choose Democratic candidates than Republicans. How to account for this, with an incumbent Democratic president? Easy-Peasy, says O'Reilly: Too many voters are emotional women, and they all want free stuff, too.

The answer is emotion. Democrats have been very successful in convincing some voters that the Republican party favors the rich and is anti-woman. The Republican party has not been able to put forth a leader refute those allegations effectively.

Also, maybe the incredibly stupid shit Republicans keep saying about women and the poor -- and maybe little things like cutting food stamps while continuing farm subsidies -- might have something to do with it, but we suppose that might fall under the whole not putting forth a leader to refute reality thing.

And because they're just so flighty and emotional and easily fooled by crafty Democrats, women, god bless their foofie little lady-brains, just can't break free of their irrational attachment to Democrats.

"Therefore, in every poll American women continue to favor Democrats," O'Reilly says, "no matter what happens to the nation."

Obviously, you have a choice, ladies. You can be for America, or you can be for the Democrats:

If you’re voting for the country, then you would be less likely to support the Democrats. But if you’re voting just for yourself and what you can get from the government, the option the Democrats provide, continued entitlements, is attractive.

And then something something Ebola, because that idiot Obama stubbornly listens to experts at the CDC and the World Health Organization instead of instituting a travel ban like smart people at Fox want. We kind of lost the thread of how that's supposed to illustrate a triumph of entitlements or emotions over simple logic, but maybe Obama is promising women extra slut pills if they go along with letting scary diseased Africans with their scary African diseases into the country.

In short, thank god some people like Bill O'Reilly can address America's problems without getting all emotional. Fuck it, we'll do it live! Fuckin' thing SUCKS!

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.
