FMA "Celebrity" Press Conference Update: Gaygaygaygaygay

Wonkette's fashion correspondent writes to let us know what happened at the press conference announcing the support of "famous people" (Pat Boone! Darrell Green! Marvin Winans! Dean Jones, star of "Herbie the Love Bug"!!!) for the Federal Marriage Amendment:


I swear I'm not making this up -- Pat Boone is wearing a white shirt, white pants, white shoes and a sports coat that is the gayest shade of orange I've ever seen. It most closely resembles Super-G brand orange sherbert, only less manly. Darrell Green and the gospel guy (like anyone listens to that) were dressed normal. Dean Jones (I assume it was him but who the hell really knows what this guy looks like) looked like he'd been pulled out of skidrow and had a suit slapped on his detoxing ass.
Sad, really. So very sad that we actually sort of feel bad for Republicans, at least one of whom also wrote, expressing mild disbelief at his party's inability to get their shit together and at least appear like they live in this decade:
HERBIE???? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???? I mean - why don't we just make women wear burqas to the press conference as well..... HERBIE?!?!?!?!?!? Ugh. And Santorum just hired all new staffers, too.
Yes, but the new staffers apparently also live in caves.

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.
