Vietnam hero Richard "Dick" Blumenthal, having now learned that there is such a thing as "opposition research" in U.S. Senate campaigns, organized a ragtag group of elderly Marines and apparently Dennis Hopper (?) for his press conference today in an aggressive effort to save his campaign from the liberal New York Times and its monsters.

The only really interesting part of his statement is when he says, with glee, that he managed to find the phone number for enlisting into the Marines on his own and with no help. Can you imagine how difficult it was to find a military recruiter's phone number during THE VIETNAM WAR?

Anyway, we're rapidly losing interest in this story. It still seems pretty clear that he hasn't been very honest about this throughout his political career, and that's going to offend certain people into not voting for him. But something still tells us that LINDA MCMAHON OF PRO FICTIONAL TRASH-WRESTLING IS WORSE, YOU KNOW. Then again: Connecticut Senate election voters...

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.
