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.

Anytime I hear some TV anchor start up with

“...but, in fairness...” or “to be fair...” I promptly want to grab something and throw it at the TV.

We’ve all been forced to be MORE than fair with this lying, cheating, lying, willfully ignorant, lying, egotistical, lying asshole! Did I mention what a pathological and congenital LIAR he is?

DAMMIT!

SO damn counterproductive! If enough people splinter off from the Dems, we stand NO chance of retaking Congress this fall!!!! And frankly, it screws over any hopes HE has of seeing anything on his political wish list enacted!

Shit - doesn’t anybody get that????

Frankly, the only way republi-CONS can win, anymore, is by cheating.

That's how they got bush/cheney into the White House, too.

The attorney for Stormy Daniels, Michael Avenatti, summed it up perfectly the other day.

"People who have nothing to hide - hide nothing."

I thought that was such a great comment that I wrote it down to make sure I wouldn't forget it.

Kinda bottom-lines it, 'eh?

I love Joe Biden. He'd be a terrific president.

Welcome to DU, radliberal!

As you can see, anytime the "B" word comes up around here, there ensues a very - um - shall we say - "lively" discussion. I've carefully looked at, listened to, and studied the Senator from Vermont. I'm still waiting to be impressed by him. I think I'll be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNGGG time.

Let's just say since he won't endorse her, that's pretty much pushed me back over toward supporting her.

Oh MYYYYYYYYYYYyyyyy!

Actually, the harsh truth is - it IS the winning.

Winning is EVERYTHING in politics. Absolutely EVERYTHING.

If you don't win, you don't govern. You don't set the agenda. You don't get to decide what bills will be brought to the floor, debated, and voted upon. You don't get to chair the committees and determine the agenda at that level. You don't get the subpoena power that comes with winning and chairing those committees. You have to sit back while the winners decide everything and you have to be satisfied with the crumbs they may or may not throw to you.

I CANNOT turn my back on the merely good because I simply MUST have perfect-or-bust. Too many people did, last time. And look where we are. Look at the mess we're in.

I certainly don't.

The fact that he doesn't want to endorse her actually raises her higher in my opinion.

See my post (#34) just below.

Something about that Cohen goon that I will NEVER be able to get past, any time I see his nasty, ugly, wannabe tough guy face.

He is VERMIN. Scum. A SNAKE. I'm surprised that he stands upright rather than slithering along the ground on his belly.
