Hot for Howard

You know, everyone says Dean's supporters are "passionate," but now we realize that at least a few of them are "clinically obsessed." We don't quite get it: It's one thing to get hot over the young Dean (a preppie hunk with smoldering eyes); it's quite another to get worked up over the now Dean (a neck-less wonk with a grimacing smile). Yet there's a newish site for those lovelorn libs whose bleeding hearts throbs for Dean. Like the official Dean blog, the site is wincingly earnest ("W. is the one child that is going to be left behind!"), unlike the official blog, its delusions go beyond merely imagining that Dean is "electable."


"Meeting him in person is even better. Those eyes melt you into the floor. He kind of glides through the room and his hand when you shake it is warm and soft. OK... I'll stop."throw him your room key already

Please. More than a few posters claim to be "straight" men -- one says his "wife" just "doesn't understand." Civil unions, indeed.

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.
