Won't You Shelter Yr Wonkette In Cleveland And Philadelphia For Convention Time Funsies?

Wonkabout

I will sleep at your house!


HOLA, Wonkerinos! As you may have heard, we (I), yr Wonkette (I, Evan), are (am) coming to Cleveland and Philadelphia in the latter half of July to make trouble (DO JOURNALISM) at the GOP and Democratic Conventions! We ... Oh fuck it, I expect to see all of you!

But here is the thing, and there is a thing. I will not be in the Wonkebago, because I asked Rebecca to FedEx it to me and she refused. I will instead be in the Wonke-Volvo, which IS TOO A THING, and I am coming from Memphis and taking a whole tour of Rust Belt US America! And instead of spending eleventy billion Ameros staying at the W like a common King Of Spain, I would prefer to stay with you people, and eat your food, for at least some of it! Here are all the locations I might maybe need to come and lounge all over your La-Z-Boy and drink your liquor:

  1. Nashville.
  2. Louisville or Cincinnati.
  3. CLEVELAND duh, I have to stay somewhere while I am doing the GOP stuff! (Oh, and in Cleveland, there might be an intern Dominic too!)
  4. PHILADELPHIA duh, I have to stay somewhere while Wonkette is being Shillary for Hillary!
  5. Roanoke maybe. Or Knoxville maybe.

I leave Memphis on Friday, the 15th. The GOP convention runs Monday the 18th through Thursday the 21st, and the Democratic convention is Monday through Thursday the following week. If I go the Virginia/Knoxville way, I will be coming through that last weekend of July sometime!

So, if you can offer shelter and things, please email me at Evan at Wonkette dot com, tell me about yourself and your location, and send me a picture of Justin Trudeau, because I like those.

ALSO TOO: In Philadelphia and Cleveland, we will be having Wonkette Drinky Things, hosted by ME, on the Sundays before the conventions start. If you have ideas for where to do those and can help rustlin' up the natives, also email me about that!

Thank you, and we now return you to your scheduled programming of dick jokes and Sarah Palin is A Idiot.

Yeah, that's my daughter and I made this

Guys!

Last

month

was

crazy!

First, NASA sent its last message to the Mars Opportunity rover! THEN scientists said that all the insects are dying but not the human-looking ones in the GOP. As if THAT wasn't enough, some brave pendejos with grandes cojones are going to try and get seafloor creatures from under a giant ice shelf in the ANTARCTIC!

So, yeah, all three of those stories happened last month. Let's cover each in a science lightning round.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is terrible at her job. Her objectives and overall mission are evil, but if it's any consolation she can't effectively implement them. After buying her Cabinet position at Sotheby's, DeVos has spent the past two years trying to roll back Obama-era policies designed to protect and actually educate students. Unfortunately for her evil schemes, federal courts keep smacking down her slimy efforts. It's getting embarrassing.

DeVos recently had to cancel $150 million in student loan debt after courts said her attempts to stop the "borrow defense" regulations from taking effect were in fact illegal. Last week, she was forced to instruct colleges to follow the Obama rule barring mandatory arbitration agreements. She got kicked in the teeth earlier this month when a federal judge ruled she'd acted illegally ... again. This time, DeVos tried to delay an Obama-era guideline that required states to address racial disparities in their special education programs. Judge Tanya S. Chutkan called the delay "arbitrary" and "capricious."

The rule, drafted under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, would require states to identify districts with "significant disproportionality" in the number of minority students channeled into special education services, segregated in restrictive classroom settings or disciplined.

OK, so what was the "education" secretary's issue with this rule? We want to imagine there's some rationale we're not seeing and DeVos is more than just some yacht-collecting monster.
