Your Wonkette Has a New Wonkette Publisher/Editor, For Freedom!

News

Good morning from your Wonkette editor since, oh, 2006. It has been an exciting (terrible?) six years, hasn't it? There was old what's his name, and Iraq, and the Great Recession, and then the sexy president with his singing and dancing all the time. And now your longtime editor will finally stop disappearing for months at a time and officially hand over this Important American Publication to a deserving and talented political writer/editor,Ms. Rebecca Schoenkopf. She is a feared and respected Liberal Woman, so the wingnuts will just love her (as they plot to send her to Gitmo). Also, Rebecca is a fancy book-writin' author and is famous for being "Commie Girl," the newspaper columnist who drove California Republicans insane for the OC Weekly. Wonkette.com is obviously going to become just like National Review's "The Corner," which was always the plan?


Rebecca will be running Wonkette from her Los Angeles headquarters, until she moves to D.C. (?!) or whatever. We don't know; it's not our business. (Ha ha, literally!) But your editor will be around for a while "to consult," like Rick Santorum does for the coal and vibrator corporations. And this year might be kind of interesting, with the politics?

Thank you for being part of the Wonkette family of lunatics all these years, for the emails and comments and links and Twitters and MySpaces and all the things, over all the years. It was a weird day in the summer of 2006 when Alex Pareene brought me here "as a guest editor," and I basically never left, despite constant threats and many sabbaticals. It has been fun, it has been grueling, it has been educational, and now it's time for me to follow Jesus down the Road of Mystery. Here is my Twitter, which I don't really use. Goodbye For Now; see you in the comments!

ProPublica released a recording yesterday of children in a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention facility crying for their parents after being subjected to the tender mercies of the New Cruelty.

The children are distraught, sobbing, inconsolable (not that the Border Patrol agents seem especially interested in consoling them). As ProPublica notes, "They scream 'Mami' and 'Papá' over and over again, as if those are the only words they know." You do not want to listen. But maybe you must.


One Border Patrol agent makes a very amusing joke as he hears all the children crying: "Well, we have an orchestra here [...] What's missing is a conductor."

Can anyone doubt that SS guards made similar jokes as children were unloaded from boxcars?

Mark Sanford is all mopey because he just lost his cushy Congress job after Donald Trump said mean things about him on Twitter. This was not the expected ending of a distinguished career, which involved lying to his constituents as governor about his whereabouts because he was conducting a clandestine affair.
