Lady Who Fucked Up Iraq to Fix It

Further proving his dedication to leaving no embarrassing failure unrepeated, President Bush is sending Meghan O'Sullivan back to Iraq!


O'Sullivan is the hot-for-Washington former top aide to the President. Here's a fun game: read through this brief biography and try to find a single sentence that doesn't point to her direct culpability in a textbook example of a massive, deadly failure at all levels of government:

O'Sullivan spent time in Baghdad early in the war, working for Jay Garner, and subsequently Paul Bremer. After returning to Washington, she joined the White House staff in October 2005, becoming Bush's top policy adviser on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan until her resignation last month.

That's right, we're sending officials from the goddamn Coalition Provisional Authority back to Iraq! Meghan will be in Iraq to help their joke of a government meet our jokes of benchmarks. Expect great things! If you're living in the one of the few parts of Baghdad that haven't been bombed, then burned down, then ethnically cleaned, well, sleep with the lights on. Haha, just kidding, you have no electricity!

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.
