Sixteen Scandals

At last week's character intervention for technically legal congressman Tom DeLay, wife Christine paid tribute to her husband's youthful beauty:


"Mr. DeLay's wife, Christine, told the audience about meeting her husband in high school -- 'there was this really hot guy, he was so cute' -- and that she had to ask him out the first time."

We think it went like this: First, to get Tom's attention, Christine donated $5000 to his high school PAC, Texans for Milk Shakes and Christ. Then they got acquainted over a round of mini-golf at the Sugar Land Putt-n-Dine. Afterwards, they shared some Cuban cigars and discovered a common love for pest control, hair spray, and abstinence. A brief but tender bout of dry-necking sealed the deal, and they've been an item ever since. Oh, and that "really hot, so cute" business? A page we found from DeLay's high school yearbook, visible after the jump, should explain everything.

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.
