Congressman Gives *Thorough* Proof That Barack Obama Is George W. Bush

News

We just received a lovely e-mail from a poor soul who had to participate in a conference call with Rep. John Shimkus, famous for, what... ah right,trying to sweep Mark Foley's gay child sex under the gay child sex rug. Let's let our operative tell the rest: "I sat in on a teleconference with Congressman John Shimkus, who has no speaking skills whatsoever. At any rate, he begins the teleconference with this gem, which I have attatched. Barack Obama is exactly like George Bush because of three things..."


1. He wants to decrease the national defecit

2. He wants to keep radical Muslims out of Afghanistan and...

3. "I can't remember what the third one was"

Shimkus isn't exactly a player on Capital Hill (he appears in your archives 3 times) but he says some incredibly dumb things like this...all the time.

In the same teleconference when asked if it was hypocritical to put in five earmarks in the Omnibus Bill and then vote against it because its too spendy he says "Isn't it a great country?!"

Anyone else thinking...Santelli/Shimkus 2012?

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.
