Goings and comings

What a weird day for the GOP. John Boehner resigns, and Kim Davis joins the party.

boing...boing...boing...boing...boing...boing...




Cleanup on aisle whatever.

My personal favorite voter registration experience (it's National Voter Registration Day)

originally posted April 14, 2012 http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002564560

"I teached you!"

We set up our table in the library, just inside the entrance. Voter registration.

As we were beginning to wonder if we'd get any takers, a thirty-something fellow approached the table with his two kids, a boy about 5 and a girl about 3. In broken English this young daddy asked if this is where he can register to vote. He broke out in a brilliant smile when we answered, "Yes".

"I am new," he said, "and I have been so excited to vote!"

While he was filling out the form, his son came and stood by me and pointed to himself. "Ali," he said. "Hello, Ali!" I answered. He laughed and jumped up and down, then pointed at me. "I teached you!" he boasted. "I teached you Arabic!"

"Well you certainly did, Ali!" His smile lit the whole room.

Daddy finished with the paperwork. "I am registered?"

"Yes."

"Thank you! Thank you!" as he and the kids took their books and movies to the check-out desk.

On their way out of the library they passed by our table, and once more Ali pointed and grinned, "I teached you!"


Oh, little Ali, you have no idea. And, yes, you certainly did.

Thank you.

Cruz on with Colbert

Gawdamitey, that man is slime. He whines about the Supreme Court "making wrong decisions for the American People", never mind that he helped to create the outcome of Bush v Gore in 2000. He sure as hell didn't complain about that decision, did he?

Seriously, he makes my skin crawl. And it looked as though Colbert had the same reaction.

He said he supports closing my clinics.

It doesn't have to be this way.
