Oh no, how will the Duggars survive? TLC has decided that, you know, on second thought, now that "kid-diddling" has replaced "look at that fun family with so many kids!" in the American consciousness, maybe it should cancel the show. Surely this had nothing to do with fleeing advertisers, and everything to do with TLC's upstanding moral character:


The show featuring the Duggar family had been in limbo since May after revelations that 27-year-old Josh Duggar molested five children including four of his sisters.

For 10 seasons, it had chronicled the home life of Arkansas couple Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their now-19 children. It was pulled from the network in May when reports surfaced of the molestations that occurred a dozen years earlier.

The network says that, instead of continuing to show "19 Kids And Counting (Is The Name Of Josh Duggar's Bucket List)" on the air this fall, it will devote some time to teaching people how to NOT be Josh Duggar, by starting an "ongoing campaign to raise awareness about child sexual abuse." This sounds like a great idea! Considering TLC's track record with hit shows and surprise revelations of child molestation, maybe it would also be good for the network to spend a little time JUST MAKING SURE there are no other shows on the network hiding these sorts of secrets.

So, since we all still have PTSD from learning about the sex crimes Josh Duggar did to his family, let's not focus on that. Let's instead bid them farewell with a list of OTHER times the family was downright dumb, creepy, weird, and gross, just in case this is the last time we get to write about them. It's time for America and Wonkette to be done with this family FOREVER:

See ya, Duggars! Don't let the door hit you on your 19 or 21 or 678,573 asses, however many there are! We won't miss you! Unless TLC decides to let some time pass and then do a spin-off featuring the non-molesty Duggars, since Christ Jesus, apparently that hasn't been ruled out, because everybody in this story is a money-grubbing whore.

Here's the kind of weird election year 2018 is: Democrat Tammy Baldwin, among the most progressive of the ten Democratic US senators from states won by Donald Trump, introduced a "Made in America Act" bill earlier this month. It would require federal infrastructure projects to use US-made steel, iron and other products, and Donald Trump is an enthusiastic supporter. Even says he'll sign it. But both of the Republican Senate candidates from Wisconsin -- who otherwise insist they love, love, love Trump the most -- have staked out positions against the bill, because, um, well, a Democrat introduced it, so populist made-in-America legislation is probably secret socialism. America Not First if it's a demmycrat idea!
