Hot Hack-on-Hack Action

When we first read Peggy Noonan's memento mori in Monday's WSJ, we assumed her references to "the Hack" as an opportunistic former Reagan staffer was just Peggy doing her loopy let's-pretend shtick, like when she wrote a memo "from" Paul Wellstone in heaven (that was kind of her) to his supporters. I mean, really: An former White House official who exaggerates his contributions and trades on his influence? Why, next thing you'll be telling is the that the Vice President's office would hand out sweetheart deals to cronies and campaign contributors! Go back to your magical land of fairies and gumdrops, dreamer!


But maybe the WSJ did pull a Page Six, and the Hack is like a blind item for Reagan revolutionaries.

Shall we play the feud? Hints:

He is a former Reagan speechwriter.

He appeared on television as part of Gipperporn, and there are pictures of him with the president.

He has not written a book.

He has hair. (Peggy refers to him as "haircut boy" -- perhaps he's gay? Hmmm.) [Gay haircut boy is a different person entirely. IF he exists. . .]

He is a he.

We'll be Googling. Send us your guesses.

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.
