About Me

I live in Houston, if you can call this living. I teach history to 11th graders. They don't appreciate my genius. I'm an active Democrat really only around election time (knock on doors, make a few phone calls, maybe donate a dollar or two if I think it'll do some good). I'm 48. I'm datin a real special gal right now, but if I don't watch my step I may have to edit out this sentence. I have pretensions toward being a director of performance art, although I've only put on one show (as of Dec 2011). I'm currently working on a second show. Our group is called Invisible Lines (www.invisiblelines.net). I mostly drink Shiner Bock beer because it's a mouth full of heaven. I'm a nut about George Washington, Martin Luther King Jr, and John Dewey. I've resisted for three years saying "I told ya so" about Barack Obama (but then again, I supported Biden in '08 so my room for complaining is minimal). That said, I'll certainly vote mediocre over evil any day of the week. I want Elizabeth Warren to run in 2016. And a pony. I totally want a pony.

Biden’s wife makes accidental X-rated joke about her husband

Things went from bad to worse for Jill Biden on Friday after accidentally cracking a joke about her husband”s manhood.

Captured on video, this is the moment the Second Lady lost her cool at a New Hampshire campaign event, giggling like a schoolgirl as the crowd roared with delight.

Passionately describing Mr Biden”s work ethic she began: “I”ve seen Joe up close,” making a wide motion with her hands, before blushing as she realised the innuendo she had just made.

“It”s in my remarks, really,” she insisted.

A wave of amused titters swept the audience, Mrs Biden allowing herself an embarrassed chuckle, but she quickly recovered and persevered, her husband nodding encouragingly behind her, a self-satisfied grin spread across his face.

It didn”t stop there, however.

Having planted the seed, every sentence seemed laden with sexual reference, so much so that Mrs Biden was barely able to continue as spectators fell apart were uncontrollable laughter.

The Second Lady”s description of Mr Biden”s “big, strong heart” was no longer as innocent as intended and by the time she got to revealing how she has “heard the urgency in his voice when he comes and talks to people” she was almost drowned out by delighted whooping from the crowd.

And as she fought the urge to laugh, Mrs Biden made a badly-timed pause after the word “comes”, which only added to the hilarity.

Mrs Biden”s slip-up came as her husband made his own campaign trail faux pas, addressing around 100 high school athletes at Newport High School.

Getting into character with a football cradled beneath his arm the Vice President discussed students” favourite sports as they stood before him in their various team kits.

Turning to a group of cheerleaders he proclaimed them to be the best athletes in college, the Daily Caller reported.

“You think, I’m joking,” he quipped. “They’re almost all gymnasts, the stuff they do on hard wood, it blows my mind.”



Mitt Romney has performed a great service to America

When Woodrow Wilson became president, he used the power of the presidency to re-segregate federal departments, appointed openly racist judges, and used the White House cinema to celebrate the historical revisionist drama Birth of a Nation that recast the Yankees and carpetbaggers as persecutors and villains in the history of Reconstruction. The result was a historical resurgence of the KKK during Wilson's term in office and a horrifying upsurge in racial lynchings in all regions of the nation.

My point is, leadership matters. Where a nation's leaders venture ideas, there will always be those who follow them, carrying their ideas to the next logical step.

In going through the videos on Crooks and Liars (and why haven't you bookmarked that website yet?) I was noticing a whole bunch of conservatives who, taking a cue from Mitt Romney's blatent bashing of the moral character of people not making enough money to pay income taxes, then go on themselves to cast yet further and more ugly aspersions against the people suffering the most from the inequities of our economic system.

And there's a whole lot of ugly out there, friends.

Mary Matalin is caling people parasites if they get help from anti poverty programs.

Some clown named Ben Shapiro is tweeting that anyone who wants government to fix problems is suffering from a "victim mentality"

All sorts of conservatives are de-woodworking themselves and jumping on the bash-the-working-class bandwagon. They are coming to the surface because the right wing's Alpha Male of the year has greenlighted (without intending to do so) all the worker-hating rhetoric their side of the nutfarm can muster. Mitt meant to just suck some money out of some fat cats when he made that speech in May. Instead, he's given the Republican Party the permission to show their true face, permission to release all that pent up bile they feel toward anyone who thinks American should make an effort to be fair to everyone who's here.

All that hate coming from the party that not only wraps itself in the flag, but then wraps itself in the Cross to boot. Mitt didn't mean to take off the mask in public, but he's now inspired his followers to come out and take their masks off too. And for that, we should thank him. Republicans loathe anyone who can't afford the country club dues. It's good to be able to see that so nakedly affirmed.

Thanks, Mitt. I couldn't have said it better myself.
