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.

I respectfully disagree. It'll be FUN to watch.

Let them all go down together. Screw them ALL.

I want her to carve him up like a Thanksgiving turkey.

The election's in November. It'd be so appropriate.

She's just another in what seems like a continuing series of broken hearts.

Dear God - another mother in agony. Just agony. You could hear her trying to keep her composure during the Lawrence O'Donnell interview. I was, too. I cried like a colicky baby for 35 straight minutes - which is how long their interview lasted. I just could not stop crying. Hell, I'm crying right now as I write this.

Shit. SO many mothers - in agony. This sweet, sweet lady. The "Mothers of the Movement." The mothers. It's the mothers who rip my heart to pieces. Because I can't help but think of MY son. And MY daughter. Can anyone imagine having their precious baby torn from them forever? I just wanted to hold her and hold her and hold her.

And to have that ASSHOLE whine about how much HE'S suffered, too... He has no soul. Truly, Tony Schwartz was right. He's the ghostwriter of "The Art of the Deal." He was on that same Lawrence O'Donnell show, following that interview with Mr. and Mrs. Khan. He characterized Donald Trump as such a damaged human being he's like a black hole. Just me-me-me, sucking up all the attention he can get, no matter what kind, as long as it's attention on him. A black hole.

Sometimes I wish I knew where I could find a genie lamp. One you'd rub and then the genie would be released, and would grant a wish. I wish I could wish all those lost babies back to their mothers' arms. Starting with Mrs. Khan.

I once heard him referred to as

the kind of individual who reminds women of their ex-husbands (the reprehensible SOB kind, that is).

Just beyond merely seeing that, live, that night,

every time I've seen that clip replayed, since, it's made me not cry but just flat-out sob. I've seen it multiple times by now, because everybody on TV is replaying it and talking about it. And that will continue for the rest of the election season, I suspect - and probably well beyond it. Certainly in all the end-of-the-year shows. Wait til the run-up to the 2020 elections. They'll bring it back AGAIN. That clip will be replayed - forever. And it won't matter if I've seen it a thousand times. It will still make me cry.


I see this even today. Smerconish on CNN even led into one part of the discussion on his show confessing a really nauseating assumption about the Khans - those still-grieving parents of that brave young soldier who was killed in Iraq who took EVERYONE'S breath away at the Democratic convention. He said he figured, at first, that they were simply nobodies who had been booked to "lower the bar" so that Hillary's speech later in the evening would seem better by comparison. I almost threw something at the TV!!! Are you fucking KIDDING ME, you asshole? You're THAT cynical about the motivation for booking that sweet, sorrowful couple? You have THAT low a regard for Hillary and company???? FUCK YOU MICHAEL SMERCONISH. ,,/,

I swear - shit like this makes me want to fight harder for her to win. If I have to carry her, bodily, across the finish line by myself!

I've seen equal shares of pundits who speculate that Hillary MAY get a bounce -

and MAYBE it'll be as big as five points, but surely no bigger.

SO just today, I'm seeing some early results, already - one of which gives her a six-point lead, and a TEN-point lead in another one.

SHEESH - bias much? I find myself speculating with my husband that on her inauguration day, watch the media openly imagine what Trump's or even a Sanders inauguration would have been like... I'm sure they'll find some way to diminish hers. She gets no respect. There are people like Andrea Mitchell who would NOT give Hillary a break if her life depended on it.


Nicely done!

Sheesh - I HOPE they got the point. Some people on that side of the aisle are remarkably thick-headed.

LOL! Good one!
