The Boring Campaign Against Jim McCrery

Campaign for America's Future -- if you're not keeping track, it's sort of the left's answer to the Swift Boat gang, near as we can tell -- plans to scalp themselves a Republican this afternoon.


Their charges, from a report to be released at noon today: Chairman of the House Social Security Subcommittee, Rep. Jim McCrery (R-LA), has taken big money from Wall Street folks who'd benefit from Social Security privatization. Shut up! Get outta here!

This is exactly the sort of scandal we expect will fail to capture the hearts and minds of American voters. Let's go over our checklist:

1. Nude Pictures On Internet? No.

2. Getting Fingered In Oval Office? No.

3. Taking Oxycontin and Dating CNN Anchor? Nope!

4. Lots of Boring Words Strung Together About Topics America Hates To Think About? Sure 'nuff!

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.
