Hank 'n' Dick: Are You Flying With Me, Jesus?

What do you get when you mix pro-lifer Rep. Henry Hyde with chief CBS memo investigator and former US Attorney General Dick Thornburgh? (No seriously, what?)


I was on the 10AM flight from O'Hare to DCA when I noticed Henry Hyde in the waiting area. A couple minutes later Dick Thornburgh ( it was total coincidence that they were on the same plane. Thornburgh was in 1st, Hyde in coach) strolled up, shook his hand and congratulated him on his ambassadorship. Hyde said 'I thought that was still just a rumor', and they both laughed. Thornburgh said it 'will' be a terrific cap to his prestigious career blah blah blah, and Hyde thanked him, doing nothing to dispel the rumors. I can only assume this has to do with the recent Vatican ambassador rumor I heard.

For what it's worth, Hyde ended up in the bathroom when we hit a bunch of turbulence. I almost died laughing at the concept of him peeing all over himself. Maybe I'm easily amused.

Oh, we are too. But it's okay, the Pope is totally down with autoerotic watersports.

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.
