About Me

I'm 61, a Southern California liberal Democrat. Barbara Boxer is my Senator and (God help me) Daryl Issa is my Representative. I'm surrounded by RW zealots and even some Birchers. I'm also proud that Diane Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi represent my state. I think there should be many, many more women in congress. I'm sure it would be a much better body (no pun). Thanks DU for an outlet.
