Reluctantly Weighing in on Veepstakes

gephardt_lifelineWe normally don't even try to involve ourselves in "real" political stories. We're happy to let Mike, Jeff, Nedra, et. al. do all the work while we sit in the corner and play with John Kerry's penis. But it falls to us to point out that there is no way Gephardt can be Kerry's veep pick. Sure, the Browless Wonder is the odds-on favorite at Americasline.com (5-to-1) and Tradesports.com has him ticking up 5 points. . . but his daughter is running for pretend president on a reality television show.


While it might actually help Kerry to embrace so explicitly the degradation of American culture (works for us), and Chrissy's ambition could be interpreted as a video version of the apple falling very close to the tree -- kind of like the Bush twins appearing on "Girls Gone Wild" -- we don't think the Kerry people will see it that way. Then again, Kerry did let his daughter parade around with her ta-tas hanging out for the whole world to see, so who knows what crazy shit he's capable of.

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.
