Club for Growth Anti-Dean Ad

We actuallyaren't they adorable? kind of love the Club for Growth's new anti-Dean ad. You know, the one that has some old couple saying Dean should take his "tax hiking, government-expanding, latte-drinking, sushi-eating, Volvo-driving, New York Times-reading . . . body piercing, Hollywood-loving, left-wing freak show back to Vermont, where it belongs." Really, how can you take anything so squarely stereotypical seriously? We're hoping that Dean runs an ad telling Bush can take his "corporate-whoring, war-mongering, coke-sniffing, SUV-driving, Washington Times-reading, free speech-suffocating right-wing cabal and stick where the sun don't shine." Anyhow, the Club for Growth ad was clearly written by David Brooks, and we hope he's getting royalties.

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.
