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.

Welcome to DU, homegirl!

Good to have you with us! It's kind of pathetic when joe scarborough is frequently regarded as one of the few republi-CONS who actually kinda gets the reality that's coming home to roost for that disgraceful excuse for an American political establishment. Almost everything about them, anymore, is thoroughly and disgustingly UN-American.

Welcome to DU, kimroc!

She really puts 'em in their places. Saying the things that need to be said, and making the points that need to be made.

Just painting a happy face on it isn't going to convince Latinos and African Americans OR women that the GOP is suddenly on their side.

You can't look at the relentless attacks on the right to vote (in THIS day and age!??!??!!!!!!!!!?!??!?!?!?) and on women's sovereignty over their own bodies. Some nice-sounding words and phrases will not counteract all of that!

VERY glad she notices. We need more of that.


Dayum! America NEEDS her as our next President!!!

I love Joe Biden with all my heart. He'd be my favorite otherwise. But Hillary KILLED, today. She ate those pipsqueaks for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and every snack around the clock. She has gravitas GALORE!!!!!

FUCKING BRILLIANT!!!!!!! She was Just. Fucking. BRILLIANT!!!!! The republi-CONS on hand for that today looked like gnats. Weiners. Worms. Dog shit.

I plan to call each of their offices and thank them for damn near crowning her our next President by acclamation! They looked ridiculous, petty, pissant, and SMALL. TEENY. Insignificant. Flies that you just swat away. But I must say I DO love that pubic hair transplant that rand paul's got!

Just Glorious!!! Thanks for posting this, HipChick!

What a great photo! A keeper!

No kidding. For example, where are the wrongneys today?

They're MIA too. I remember when Al Gore had the class to be there to watch the guy who stole it get sworn in. So did John Kerry. Whatsamatta, mitt? Too many of those damned "entitled" people there for ya?

Just as well. It was nice not to have to suffer ANY of them. Bad enough we had to tolerate the presence of boner and yertle, lamar alexander (lamar alexander????????? Now THAT's random), and that asshole scalia in his stupid clown hat.

Welcome to DU (in this new incarnation, anyway), allGoodThings!

At least you found your way out of the Dark Side to a more open mind. Conversions are good things. And you can learn a LOT here. So now, help us turn more people around. We've got a lot of work to do! Glad you're not a disruptor anymore.

Good One!!! Like this!

Wish I had a way to get rid of EVERY craven image of that beast.

I noticed that, both yesterday and today.

He clung to that note card as though it were a life raft!

OH how I LOVE this SO MUCH!!!!

Certainly speaks for me!

These assholes can all SUCK IT!!!!!!

I'm wondering why they weren't on the platform, attending the Inauguration.

Others who were defeated have been there. Not that I missed them. But I did want to see the looks on their faces. I wanted to see if there was a spark of genuine humanity in them. All I got throughout last year were cardboard cut-outs. I would have liked to have seen how they comported themselves. Probably as elegantly as they could, while feeling still profoundly disappointed. I would have liked to have seen that. Whether there was real feeling in there. boner and yertle certainly looked glum enough. But okay. That's honest. I bet their faces said exactly how they felt. If they were trying to hide it, they weren't very successful.

Well, hey, it isn't their day. And I'm not trying to sound like a heartless bitch. If I come off that way here, I apologize. I'm just looking to see if there's emotion in there. You can relate to that. You can relate to genuineness, to authenticity. Why else do people just kinda helplessly love Joe Biden? What on earth is more real and genuine and approachable? He is GENUINELY that proverbial guy you wanna go have a beer with. That one is easy to envision. Just entirely congenial, not stuffy, not arrogant, easy-to-relate-to, not off-putting or artificial. Just a warm, genuine, inclusive, goofy, friendly, happy old white dude. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and his lapels, and across his forehead, and even with a crazy hat on - it's there smack-dab on the front of the hat. The opposition has so many walls up. Expensive, fancy, jewel-studded, designer walls, but walls nonetheless. No compassion, no openness, no authenticity, no warmth, just a front. A cold front. I want to see that crack open a little. There's GOTTA be something human in there.
