Wyoming, Meet Your New Senator ... Lynne Cheney!

It is your destiny ... - WonketteThe Cheneys and the Clintons are so much alike, it's crazy. Just like Bill Clinton was president and then Hillary Clinton became a senator, now Lynne Cheney is going to be appointed senator while her husband is president. It's crazy, the way these things happen.


According to MSNBC, Wyoming's GOP will pick three potentials to replace that guy who died, and then Wyoming's Democrat governor is forced to choose one of them as the new senator until the special election -- yes, apparently we still have elections, too, sometimes. And that very governor, Dave Freudenthal, is likely to be the Democrat candidate in the special election. So Dave just has to pick the most hated person out of the three, and that's who he gets to run against in 2008.

This is also sort of like when Caligula appointed his horse to the Senate.

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.
