About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

Happiness and total abandon!

LOVE IT!

I loved it when all you saw protruding out from under that big pile of leaves was a wagging tail!

AHA! Well, that could be it, as well.

There's got to be some very deep-seated personal reason why she simply cannot give Hillary the benefit of the doubt - EVER. NOT EVER! By now, it's just too glaring.

And yeah, if she can't be objective, then she should be taken off the air, or reassigned to cover something else outside of Presidential politics. Where her bias can't be brought into things.

"Scampaign"!!!! LOVE IT!!!

That is rather exquisite, elehhhhna! BRAVA!!!!

Oh, I'm CERTAIN both Mr. & Mrs. Greenspan travel in such circles.

I would not doubt that's exactly their social scene. Power people. Movers and shakers. Predominantly GOPers and conservatives and financial tycoon-types, and their wives (and probably also girlfriends/mistresses).

My husband also just now quipped, while strolling by our TV (which was tuned to CNN): "calling Trump supporters 'psychopaths' does not qualify as name-calling"!

I LUV-LUV-LUV my guy! He's always thought-provoking!

Yeah. He just volunteered that observation.

My husband's been very astute in the past, regarding what makes people tick, and what might be some underlying motivation. Way more often than not, he's been right.

I just find it most thought-provoking, and wanted to share it.

We've been at it for more than 40 years. I've learned to trust his instincts.

Indeed, indeed, indeed!

And he just now quipped...

"...hmmmm... Andrea's pissed off..."

I swear! I bet that's IT!

And what could piss her off more than to see her "nemesis", who she may suspect her husband has a crush on, go all the way to the top and win the Presidency? GOD she'd be a shriveled little mess over that one...

Fascinating comment from my VERY perceptive husband, about Andrea Mitchell...

I just thought I'd share this.

My guy is a real feminist. A man of great quality, powerful intellect, and keen discernment.

He tossed off a random observation the other day about Andrea Mitchell, that might well explain the raging and very flagrant Hillary hatred. He said "Alan Greenspan must have said something, at one point, about how he thought Hillary Clinton was hot." He just now added - "or maybe he turned to Andrea and gestured toward Hillary and said 'Why don't you try your hair THAT way?'"

And my mind exploded!!! OMG!!! I bet he's RIGHT! (Again!!!)

And just now, at the top of the hour after Andrea's -

Hallie Jackson (host): "This is a moment of triumph for all of us (meaning women)."

Andrea: "not all of us."

Hallie: "well, most of us."

I tell ya, the more I think about this, the more I'm convinced my guy NAILED it. Sometimes he has a very keen instinct about people...

He's the one who made the first assessment of Trump after the first debate

that Trump "ran out of gas" after the first 20 or 30 minutes. And it stuck. And within a few minutes a slew of other pundits and talking heads were using that same metaphor.

He is a pretty straight shooter. He's not adverse to saying, flat-out, when his team is failing. He doesn't try to pivot or otherwise change the subject or run off at the mouth the way the Trump surrogates and other assorted "yeah, but HILLARY/yeah, but BILL CLINTON..." team members do. Steve Schmidt seems, at least, to have a grip on objective reality. Perhaps he realized he needed to move out of Bubble World after McCain/Palin went belly-up.

Elizabeth Warren speaks for ME!!!

DAYUM I am loving this! And loving her, too! But, for me, that's an ongoing thing (same as with Hillary).
