Debt of Honor: The Jack Ryan Story

Chicago news outlets are reporting that Jack "Swing State" Ryan is dropping out of the race, leaving the field open for his hotter, less plagued by monumentally bad judgment competitor. We're pretty broken up about it, mostly because the story was full of such great material, like this plot summary for a Cinemax-After-Darkish film co-financed by Jack Ryan and starring Jeri Ryan:


Meanwhile, Gloria's cousin Lydia (Jeri Ryan) comes to visit. She is a gorgeous woman and Gloria is horrifically jealous; she even makes up stories about her being in a mental institution. Well, Lydia unwittingly kills Gloria's beloved pig and serves it in a beautifully prepared dinner, inflaming Gloria's anger to the point where she wants Billy to help her kill her cousin. But Billy takes a liking to the vicious woman and begins to question who is better for him, the abusive, relentlessly angry Gloria or the affectionate, beautiful, arrogant Lydia.
We didn't even have time to work out a joke for that. Good bye, Jack Ryan. Comedy will miss you.

Also, this is a good time to thank all of you who wrote in regarding my original post on the Ryan affair, which referred to Jeri's Star Trek character as an "alien hottie." As many of you pointed out, she was not technically an alien, but a human child who who had been kidnapped by the Borg. I stand corrected. Now go grant yourself five points for dexterity or whatever.

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.
