"Wouldn't This Be a Great World If Insecurity And Desperation Made Us More Attractive?"

Joe Scarborough, trying very hard:


Well, Michael, we have invited you to visit SCARBOROUGH COUNTRY this week.  We invited you earlier this month.  And we are waiting for your reply.  I want you to come on SCARBOROUGH COUNTRY.  I will meet you any time, anyplace, anywhere, one hour.  We will go straight through.  We will talk about “Fahrenheit 9/11,” the claims you are making about that, the claims you are making about George Bush, the claims you are making about Iraq, the claims you are making about the bin Laden family. 

Heck, we‘ll even talk about the claims that you made in your last movie.  Whatever you want to do.  You name the time, the place.  We will be there.  I will bring Mike along.  He will have the camera.  Whatever you want, wherever you want, we will be there. 

Someone really needs to give Joe a copy of "The Rules" for talk show hosts. He's just barely stopped short of offering up his first born child and/or free donuts (and you know which one would put the deal over the top for Michael). We heard he was going to go with "Give us Michael Moore or God will call us home," but Tina Brown already tried that and had to settle for Toure.

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.
