Roberts Probably Straight (Not That There's Anything Wrong with That)

ComeonhetotallylooksgayWe're sort of thrilled that our joking about John Roberts being gay has been officially elevated to a "whisper campaign" intended to bring him down. Does that mean we can take credit for ruining the Kerry-Edwards ticket, too? We're sure John Kerry would appreciate some help in shouldering the blame.


Honestly, we're shocked at how little it took for our observation about Roberts' wrestling/drag career to morph from "heh-heh" to "HEL-LOOO, MARY!" We're been trying to get people to buy Bush as a dog-fucker for years and Powerline has yet to write an outraged editorial.

Okay, serious now: We don't actually think Roberts is gay. We totally wish he was, though! Someone needs to keep Souter company.

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.
