40 Hilarious Resignation Letters That You'll Want To Copy! Tabs, Wed., Dec. 22, 2021

John F. Kennedy would only be 104, so he could conceivably come back to where he was assassinated in Dallas — you know, if he hadn't been assassinated in Dallas — to meet with the QAnon people, but regardless they should not be drinking Jonestown bowls of communal bleach.

America gone "mad" Lawyers Gun & Money? Oh pshaw.
Was just briefed by a major hospital network CEO. It's not just that they're beyond capacity.

OH, DID THOSE INCIDENTS HARDEN RACIAL DIVIDES, RADLEY BALKO, HENGHHH?
Two controversial shootings hardened a long-simmering racial divide within the department. The first came in 2010, when two white officers working off-duty security entered the home of an elderly Black man, refused to leave when asked, then claimed they were threatened before shooting and killing him. He wasn’t suspected of any crime. He also happened to be the father of two LRPD officers, one current and one retired. The officers involved in the killing were exonerated after an investigation that many Black officers said in court records, internal affairs probes, and media interviews was biased to find the shooting justified.
The other incident was in 2012, when a white officer shot and killed a 15-year-old Black teen, then lied about the shooting, according to internal affairs investigators. (The chief at the time did not sustain the charge of lying.) Eight years earlier, that officer had been hired despite lying on his job application when he denied attending a Ku Klux Klan meeting.
Anyway, WOOF, the white cops and police unions being real pieces of shit to reformist Black police chiefs, reeeeeal pieces of shit and almost certainly criminals too. (The Intercept)

Please keep Wonkette going forever, if you are able!
Rebecca Schoenkopf is the owner, publisher, and editrix of Wonkette. She is a nice lady, SHUT UP YUH HUH. She is very tired with this fucking nonsense all of the time, and it would be terrific if you sent money to keep this bitch afloat. She is on maternity leave until 2033.
