Letter From Wonkette: Hookers In The (White) House

When gay White House porn hits the internet, you know The Real Wonkette can't stop looking:


Dear Choire,

It's just my luck to take off the very month a juicy ass-fucking story breaks. (Mmmm..."juicy ass"....) I will have to console myself with pictures of Jeff Gannon/JD Guckert's large penis. And by "console," I mean... Well, you know what I mean. Mr. Wonkette doesn't get home until 6, ok?

In fact, it crossed my mind that Guckert/Gannon would make a great date for the White House Correspondents' Dinner, but then I figured I'd have to pay him. Probably extra, being a girl and all. And speaking of the Oscars for ugly people, I am very, very concerned by the news that the White House Correspondents' Association has been goaded into action by this Gannon cock-up. E&P reports that the group will be playing a "more active role...in approving requests or credentials." I mean, please, they have a party to plan.

Still, WHCA dude Ron Hutcheson makes some good points about the mess. True, he does think "too much is being made out of" Guckert's hot nekkid bod. (Speak for yourself, Ronster!) Then again, he also admits that spread eagle taint shots can be compatible with ethical reporting: "Playboy has naked women, but they have done some damn good journalism. It is the journalistic endeavor that should be looked at." To this, I can only say that if Talon News had contained pictures of naked women, at least they would have gotten something right.

But my favorite words of wisdom from Hutcheson are these: "It is a very hard thing to do, to determine who is a journalist and who isn't."

Oh God. So true. You should get a tattoo of that, Choire! Maybe on your lower back, so that Gannon has something to read.

Love,

Ana

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.
