Republican Senate Candidate Lady Will Just Stalk You Until You Vote For Her, Probably

News

A few Tuesdays ago, a super-cool lady named Dr. Monica Wehby won the Republican nomination for Senate in Oregon and is up against an incumbent Dem, Senator Jeff Merkley. You'd think she would have been a less-than-ideal choice, given that she's facing allegations of stalking an ex-boyfriend and harassing an ex-husband. Haha who are we kidding. Like those things matter to the GOP. In fact, Wehby is doubling down on the whole thing and explaining that her stalking and harassing show a strength of character and oh dear god we love this woman so much already because we are gonna write about her forfuckingever.


Republican Senate candidate Dr. Monica Wehby, who's challenging Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR), explained that police reports detailing accusations of showing up at one ex's house multiple times uninvited and striking another with a pad of paper shows her "very strong conviction" and that she's "a very committed, determined person."

"I think that the thing to learn from that is that I am a person who will stand up for what I believe in," Wehby said Monday in response to the police reports according to The Associated Press. "I'm a person who doesn't easily back down. I will fight for Oregonians with very strong conviction. I'm a very committed, determined person."

You know, we actually can't dispute that it shows a certain level of dedication to stalk your ex, but basically saying you'll boil a bunny when you don't get your way isn't a selling point to rational people, but then we remember that the GOP do not fall under the definition of "rational people" no matter how far we stretch it. Also, you should really stop hassling her, man, because everybody makes mistakes, and it is what makes us all great and glorious and beautiful and flawed humans.

"Nobody is perfect. Nobody wants to have every single aspect of their life scrutinized," Wehby said. "But you know, I kind of like people who aren't perfect; they're easier for me to relate to."

We can't wait to see what sorts of staffers she hires.

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.
