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 wouldn't be surprised if they have articles of impeachment

Ready to go after the next Democratic President completes his or her inaugural speech.

Back during the Bill Clinton impeachment I HEARD operatives saying it was “payback for Nixon”. I remember that. And I remember being pissed off about that.

With the exceptions of Adam Schiff and the Pelosi group shot,

I’d like to see every individual pictured in that thread behind bars.


... for the WIN!!!

Then he's really talking self-hatred.


Either one works and either one fits.

I just LOVE Charlie Pierce!

Well, when it's so well deserved...

What a little pissant.

Memo to Mike P: you probably thought these jobs from trump would be your stepping stones up into the Oval Office, yourself.

You can just forget that right now. You’re just more damaged goods now. As former Republican strategist Rick Wilson said, in a book he wrote: “Everything trump Touches Dies.”

That works for me!

I forget which BSer up there tried to smear Joe Biden

but it made me think back carefully.

I have known, heard, and read about Joe Biden for - what? Some 30 years? It’s been a LONG time. Through Anita Hill. Through various judicial appointment hearings wherein he chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee. Through one or maybe two truncated runs for President as well as his two campaigns as President Obama’s VP.

I have NEVER, NOT ONCE, not a SINGLE TIME heard ANY complaints about him from any staffers anywhere who said he yelled or screamed at them or mistreated them or intimidated them. NOT EVEN ONCE!!!


I HAVE, however, heard such a complaint about Amy Klobuchar getting testy with staffers. Hell, I’ve worked for SOBs who were horrible, shrieking at people, throwing typewriters out the window of an upper-story office, and damn near exploding. One miserable summer I worked in a newsroom where the ladies’ room was so crowded with terrified interns in hiding that there was no room to pee. I’ve worked for SOBs who could be heard screaming at some poor unfortunate underling from OUTSIDE the newsroom through not one but TWO sets of closed doors. I’ve worked for one SOB who shrieked at his victim with such angry violent venom that he actually made a grown man cry.

Hell, I worked one job in which I renamed one of the major crosstown streets on which the newsroom was located “Cry Street.” Why? Because that’s what I did while driving home on it every day after work. The job was THAT miserable.

So I KNOW what it’s like to work for disgraceful AND deceitful and conniving shits and political backstabbers. I have NEVER heard anything even remotely like that kind of anecdotal evidence about Joe Biden.

Did I miss something?
