Illustrating today's Post-America America info-graphic are the two most famous living humans from Mississippi and Oregon: Vile slob and unrepentant racist Haley Barbour, the actual governor of Mississippi, and musician Stephen Malkmus of Portland.


Mississippi is, of course, America's worst state. And it also has the fattest children on Earth.

A tragic new study proves that 44% of Mississippi's 10-to-17 year olds are overweight, and 22% of them are Medically Obese. These are kids we're talking about, not 62-year-old lifelong swine like Haley Barbour.

Oregon, meanwhile, has the lowest ratio of fatso children in America, with "only" 10% of its children officially obese. There was even a small decline in the percentage of overweight and obese kids in Oregon between 2003 and 2007 -- Mississippi's juvenile fat-bags were up 8% during that same period, as the awful state's child-obesity rate went up 4%.

Nationwide, we continue to have some fat fucking kids, with the most recent national data (from 2004) showing 32% of U.S. kids are overweight and 16% are obese. And that was six years ago. Just look around. It is already much, much higher. We could very easily replace the lost oil from that BP well in the Gulf of Mexico by simply tapping the fat from Mississippi's children. [Reuters]

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.
