For the most part, we are not big fans of Fox's Megyn Kelly. There's just something about her head-tilted, unbelieving-skeptic pose that screams Fakey McFakerton to us, as if attitude = hard-hitting journalism. All the same, it's kind of fun to see that pissed-off sorority-girl-who-can't-believe-she-got-a-"C" face turned on kitten-devouring warmonkey Dick Cheney and his prop daughter Liz. Take this clip from Wednesday's The Kelly Files, where Megs opened the segment quoting a WaPo piece asking why anyone would listen to the one person in America "who has been more wrong and more shamelessly dishonest on the topic of Iraq."


And then the mood started getting a little unfriendly.

We rather enjoyed the moment when Kelly takes the money quote from yesterday's Liz-N-Dick "we're still here" op-ed and throws it back at Lord Vader:

In your op-ed, you write as follows: "Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many." But time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir.

And then Kelly launched into a list of terribly wrong Cheney quotes and predictions, asking, "what do you say to those who say you were so wrong about so much at the expense of so many?"

To which Cheney replied with this beautiful verbal slip: "No, I just fundamentally disagree, Reagan... uh, Megyn...(cough!)" And also, everybody knew that Saddam Hussein had WMD's, so no way was the Iraq War conducted on the basis of a lie, and it was a brilliant victory that Barack Obama has foolishly pissed away. And George Bush's 2008 status of forces agreement, which specified a 2011 withdrawal of U.S. forces, is not to blame, because Barack Obama is responsible for not renewing it. He just should have forced Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to renegotiate it, the big weakling, because why should Iraq have any say in an agreement like that?

Also, added Liz, eager to get a chance to speak, Obama is one dangerous dude, the biggest enemy America has:

"I think there is no question, I think that he is, uh, unique, in terms of a president who is sitting in the Oval Office, who has made very clear that his desire is to weaken the nation. And, whether you say it’s his intent or naivete, you can now look at the results of the policies of the last six years.”

Stop blaming the Bush-Cheney administration for Iraq, guys. Totally Obama's fault. Damn it, we need some more war.

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.
