I know, gag, whateverYes, yes, the Washington Post has a fawning profile of the Kucinich marriage in its Style section written by Libby Copeland. Snark, snark, snark. We apologize profusely, but the Wonketteer officially covering all short, dark politicians was apparently a little hormonal this morning and totally had something in her eye that she had to get out, okay?


Look, he's a weird little man. He maybe saw a UFO, he's a vegan, he's quite possible left of Marx. He wants to start a Department of Peace... well, crap, go read all the policy stuff for yourself. I had pretty much figured that he got Elizabeth to marry him through some sort of weird mind control thing or drugs or something and then stupid Libby Copeland had to go interview them and it was all love at first sight and hours-long conversations until dawn and weird coincidences that convinced them it's all meant to be and "soul recognition" and, shit, there's that fucking eyelash in my eye again.

Whatever. I'm going to go eat some Ben and Jerry's and hope my snark is in the bottom of it.

Tough week for Suzanne Israel Tufts, the nice Trump campaign lady with no experience doing investigations who was almost appointed to oversee, or at least overlook, the Interior Department's four ongoing investigations into Ryan Zinke's "ethics," for want of a better word. Not only did she not get that nice job as acting inspector general after the media got hold of the story and everyone said it stank to high heaven, but Tufts, who had been employed at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, suddenly up and quit that job too late Friday. Pour out a 40 (gallon barrel of industrial waste, into a poor community's water source) for her, won't you?

Once again, the Trump administration is coming after birth control. Specifically, they are looking to issue rules that would roll back the Affordable Care Act mandate that requires that most employers provide insurance that covers it, which would leave god knows how many women across the country without access. The administration had previously attempted to eliminate this mandate last year, but said attempt was blocked by two federal judges on the grounds that doing so would cause "serious and irreparable harm."

But now they're trying again, because forcing people to have unwanted children just seems like a really fantastic time to them, I guess. If these rules manage to get passed, and if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade as it is expected to, the Right will soon be closer than ever to the future filled with barefoot and pregnant women making them sandwiches that they have always dreamed of. For the rest of us, it will be a pretty shitty time.
