About Me

Still an ardent Irish-American Catholic damnYankee Yellow Dog Democrat socialist after all these years. (cue Simon music) Army brat and wife for many years, now have been on the loose far longer than I was married. After my two red chows died, I took in a mini-beagle cross that I named Molly Maguire, thinking she might need a good Irish name like my original real one. Later she got a baby sister, a smooth-coat JRT I named Brigid after the greatest of the ancient Celtic goddesses. My great-grandfather and his son fought for Michael Collins and barely made it out of Ireland one step ahead of John Bull. They slipped over to Wales for new identities and then forward to the States for a fresh start. That makes me second generation of illegal but certainly justified immigrants. There are precious few people to whose defense I fly immediately, but the list includes Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama even when I disagree with him - it happens! - and living Irish patriots Gerry Adams and Martin \\\'Mind Your Kneecaps\\\' McGuiness. I pray earnestly for a united and free Ireland rescued from all official British occupation, with every square inch of alleged \\\'ancestral lands\\\' now held immorally and illegally by the invaders returned to the rightful owners. Irish-only rule for Ireland. No foreign masters anymore! I find it passing strange when Brits chide ME about \'interfering\' in Irish politics!

The UNholy trinity.

You go, grrrrl!

I'm already mentally composing my letter to Mikey begging him to start a 'real' Christian party. He's the only one who can tell the rest of us what a 'real' Christian is, and the sooner he gets about it the better. Never know when Armageddon's a'comin', you know.

You're right about some people

But not all of us.

Yellow Dogs never sleep, neither do we slumber. We might even be able to teach Masada something about 'never again'. Because quite frankly, I consider the GOP a bunch of godforsaken fascists.

And I want to take this opportunity

... to publicly praise my favorite voter last election: the expectant mother who stayed waiting in line even though her water broke, because nothing on earth or in hell was about to stop her from voting. We need millions more just like her.

We will not sit idly by

At least not the Yellow Dogs. We will hound them to the gates of hell and beyond if that's what it takes.

But I do agree about dumping the DINOs.

Personally, I salivate over the idea of a Clinton-Castro ticket or maybe Clinton-Cuomo. It still grieves me that Mario Cuomo refused to run. I guess he had a good reason, but he still would've made one of the greatest presidents imaginable.

No, no, no!

You must learn to spel the mascot's name right. It's 'Depty DAWG'!

Hate to admit it

But so far I like your party name suggestion best.

It will take awhile to train my tongue to pronounce it, but I'm willing to put in the effort.

Teahadist Talibangelists..... Teahadist Talibangelists.... Teahadist Talibangelists....

See, I'm hard at work already.

Here's a party slogan for them, which I'm sure they'd like:

"Jesus said to kill you, and I'm here to do it; all in His holy name, of course."

or, they could shorten it to:

"Die, infidels!" That would be easier for them to remember.

Eckhart was great, wasn't he?

Second only perhaps to Niehbur, whose last name I can NEVER spell right and who is reportedly one of President Obama's favorites. And mine. But then I have a long list of equal favorites.

I like those suggestions

But please allow me to propose my own favorite, which they might actually even adopt: the GodParty.

American Taliban suits them better, but they probably won't go for it. Sounds too foreign.

I say we all promise to flood Mikey's gates with pleas for him to run, run, run as fast as possible. Promise to vote for him instead of those pinhead godless other conservatives. Considering the accuracy of your first new party name suggestion, FreshWest, I think they'd fall for it.
