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.

I've literally gotten choked up several times, while listening to her opening statement.

She is VERY credible and persuasive as hell. I believe her.

I TOTALLY believe her.

She's STILL traumatized.

That's all I've got as a takeaway.

And she's NOT a professional actress, either.

Meh - NOT impressed.

I saw it. NOT impressed. To really make the point, he could have - and should have - declared he would NOT vote in favor, or he would abstain, UNLESS we press the "pause" button and give the FBI time to do a full investigation. He did not do that. So I am not moved by what he said. It's meaningless. TOTALLY meaningless.

Michael Avenatti fights and confronts the way I wish ALL our Dems would do.

I'd adjust that last one.

From "that is, someone discovers that he committed sexual assault or witnessed gang rapes while in high school (7/7)" to

"that is, someone discovers that he committed sexual assault or witnessed, OR PARTICIPATED IN, gang rapes while in high school."

After all, we have no proof that he DIDN'T participate in those gang or "train" rapes. Especially since we also have eye-witness accounts that mention SEEING HIM AND HIS MISCREANT PAL, Mark Judge, IN LINE with other boys, waiting outside a closed-door room to take their "turns" with the young, drugged, forcibly incapacitated female inside.

How do we NOT know that they both DID NOT also go into that room to have their way with the female victim inside? After all, they were seen in the line of boys waiting to get in there and do that. Don't we have a sworn affidavit from another potential victim, saying she saw that with her own eyes?

They've denied it.

OF COURSE they've denied it!

But hey, Vladimir Putin's ALSO denied HIS OWN assaults - even, figurative rapes - of our sacred right to vote in the sanctity of fair and free and unfettered and uncompromised elections in this country!

Welcome to DU, euphorb!

I think we should realistically look at a Plan B. If worse comes to worst, are we ready with a Plan B?

Impeachment of a Supreme Court justice. If we get either house back in November, let the investigations begin! If we get either house back, WE get subpoena power. Then we can drag Mark Judge's ass in to testify, whether he wants to or not. Same thing with Kavanaugh. What are the penalties for defying a Congressional subpoena? Hmmmm... let's explore...

We need an army of Michael Avenattis. I know it's superficial as hell but we need people with a fast turn of phrase in the verbal combat department - which unfortunately is the way the bad guys have decided the game is played now. We need some mean, nasty, swaggering, snarling, hit-below-the-belt street fighters. Attack dogs. We need our own Newt Gingriches and other "back-bench bomb-throwers" who figuratively speaking take no prisoners. Regretfully, I think WE need some weasels. We need our own versions of Trey Gowdy and even, I almost hate to say it but, Devin Nunes. Shrewd, manipulative, calculating, even vindictive. Being nice is yesterday. I wish that weren't true. I wish TO DEAREST GOD this weren't true. I wish this weren't how it is. But in politics, that's EXACTLY what AND how it is. The other side will NOT play fair or follow rules or stop sneaking around behind, over, and under to get their way and their agenda through. The other side will not stop trying to screw, savage, and sabotage. We're dealing with a crowd of latter-day bomb-throwing Machiavellis. The gunfight-and-napalm crowd - whom we're so accustomed to "fighting" with powder puffs, butter knives, and feather dusters. And as long as we keep playing fair and they don't, and as long as we don't play mean and nasty and they do, we're gonna get rolled every time. EVERY. DAMN. TIME.

A friend of mine, who sank down into the Dark Side years ago, recently commented in shock and bewilderment, with dander up, and a whiff of condescension, "you're SO ANGRY!" Yeah? What's it to ya, pal? You bet your damn bippy I'm angry! How can you see what's going on now and NOT be angry - angry as ALL HOLY HELL????????

Indeed! Projection much?

Welcome to DU, clementine613!

You make a good point. It never came up. But that doesn't necessarily mean there's nothing there.

Welcome to DU, SimpleC!

Yeah, it's just the damnedest thing, 'eh? Whooda thunkit?

WHILE your pResident's wife was left alone at home with a new baby.

WHILE you were out shtupping a porn star. Or at least - the one we know about.
