Grinch Bush Revokes Real-Estate Crook's Pardon

News

Brooklyn fraud king Isaac Robert Toussie got thegift of Innocence from George W. Bush on Tuesday. But just a day later, on Christmas Eve, mean old Grinch W. Bush's heart shrunk three times. Even thought Toussie's dad sent the GOP a $28,500 "reminder" that his convicted felon son really needed a presidential pardon for running an elaborate and cruel housing/mortgage scam that pretty much defines the amoral real-estate boom & bust of this miserable decade, the White House suddenly decided they really didn't fully understand how this famous crook screwed over hundreds of working-class and low-income minority families.


The Bush Administration claims it learned from news reports, yesterday, that Isaac R. Toussie is a criminal who did terrible things in Suffolk County, New York, as well as being a convicted mortgage-fraud ringleader who falsified stacks of loan applications for HUD-backed home loans.

What's shocking is that the Bush Administration is suddenly sensitive to a flood of outraged blog posts and news stories about whatever corrupt thing the Bush Administration just pulled. They weren't bothered by the outrage over Iraq or domestic spying or Halliburton or Katrina or Abu Ghraib or Enron or Waterboarding or ... jesus christ, do we really want to list all this stuff, again?

Let's all hope President Jenna Bush will finally bring justice to the world and pardon this great man, the real-estate crook, in 2020.

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.
