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.

That'd be funny if it weren't true.

But I DO love Andy Borowitz!!!

OR that you're a member of the "Democrat Party."

Well, I don't know about them, but last time I looked, I lived in the United States of AMERICA.

And my leader is President OBAMA. NOT this asshole netanyahu. Sorry. I don't take orders from him. We didn't bother watching the speech. My husband changed it to the Weather Channel.

Welcome to DU, dinger130!

Glad you're here! He totally did! Sometimes our dear ol' potato-faced Tweety gets it spot-on. This time he certainly did. And it's great that he's saying it, out loud. Hope he rams it home on his own show tonight. And I hope others pick up on it.

Because this is EXACTLY what happened.

I don't know why we can't use the "T-word."


What the hell? WHY shouldn't we? Why can't we? Why do we have to tiptoe around this? Why can't we sling some reeking, smoking, radioactive mud?

I keep thinking back to the story told about LBJ, early in his career, running for office in Texas. He accused his opponent of - um - sleeping with pigs. He knew full well it didn't apply, factually. But he did it anyway. THE POINT WAS: MAKE HIM DENY IT!!!!

WHY can't we do that now? MAKE 'EM face and have to deal with charges of treason. Make 'em deal with it. Make 'em dance around it and deny it and harrumph it and foam at the mouth. Why can't we do that?


Welcome to DU, ellennelle!

Glad you're here! You're a palindrome! I agree with you. She's doing great honor to the seat once held by Teddy Kennedy. The people of Massachusetts are well-served. Not so much by their governor (who's a CON) - what the hell? Oh yeah. I forgot.

Because Martha Coakley.

I do, too.

Or hysterical, maybe?

THIS ^^^^^^

She WILL get this, assuming she wins. MORE disrespect. Her biggest fault will have been that she doesn't have an "R" after her name.
