An alert Wonkette operative draws our attention to Judge John Roberts' gay-tastic-ness: He was a total snob about china patterns. Confusingly, both the moonbatty NPR's Nina Totenberg and the wingnuttier Washington Times picked up the story. Apparently, Roberts -- in his capacity as guardian of the Reagan legacy against pasty-faced moonwalking freaks (he doth protest too much?) and tacky Branson-bound collector's items -- advised the president's counsel to withhold the endorsement of "a new china pattern that the Boehm Porcelain Co. was selling." Wrote Roberts, "This would not only contravene established White House policy concerning endorsement of commercial products, but also, given this particular pattern, call into serious question the president's taste in dinner service." Roberts then flounced into the President's residence and started throwing out wire hangers. "Don't get me started on the shoulder pads, girlfriend!" he screamed, before making a flying tackle to wipe the rouge off of Nancy's cheeks.

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.
