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.

Got a link? I completely agree with this assessment.

What I think I found particularly disturbing yesterday was how he blew up. Watching his face grow flushed. Looked like a couple of glaring red spots or enlarged pimples that appeared on his face. Large angry-looking red rashes on his cheeks that spread down the sides of his neck, looking like they continued on down under his shirt collar.

It was VERY easy to see how he could be a belligerent drunk - angry, menacing, terrorizing, intimidating. My husband calls it “turning big and red” when you get really angry.

He reminded me of something Carl Sagan once said about one of the moons of Jupiter. Io, I think it was. Strange hot blemished swollen-looking orb he described as “a diseased fruit.” He’d be terrifying to be around when he got angry. Loud, loutish, bullying, arguing and interrupting and domineering. Really rather unnerving and frightening.

I can TOTALLY see how Dr. Ford felt that awful night when she was only 15 years old. If I were pinned under that with his hand clamped over my mouth to keep me from screaming while he was trying to tear my clothes off, I too would be terrified that he was about to kill me.

Hey Brett, you may have bullied your way onto the Supreme Court. You may have buffaloed unpteen old white men with superiority complexes. But you never fooled us women. Millions of us know EXACTLY who you are, and what you are. You are a MONSTER.

Yep. That's about the size of it.


She's been fabulous! HIGHLY quotable! She's the one who, during the first break

in Dr. Ford's emotional, credible, and compelling testimony, said "half of America is crying."


And he COULD crush them without cheating. I'm convinced of that.

Sigh... no shit, guillaumeb.

We certainly do. Never wavered.

And Ms. Mitchell could have used the results of a proper

professional FBI investigation.

Perhaps it’s those GOP men who are more to blame.

Sheesh. These days it seems as though it’s those GOP men who are MAINLY to blame. Lindsey Graham is the current frontrunner in the Asshole of the Day contest.

My husband says since John McCain passed, poor Lindsey has no guardrails anymore. John McCain probably kept his natural tendency to be a complete jerk somewhat reined in. Now we may merely be seeing who the real Lindsey Graham is.

EXCELLENT info at the bottom of your post there, turbinetree!

Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins are SUPPOSEDLY pro-choice.

I guess we'll just have to see if they REALLY mean it.
