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.

Dear God, I can't wait til this is over. Especially the parts

that include her.

See, THIS guy fights. We've needed someone like this

to bring some backbone, some snarl, and some flame-throwers to the side of our timid, anemic, concession-happy Dems. As far as I can tell, Avenatti is exactly what the doctor ordered.

LOVE it!!! I think trump is jealous that the other side has that kind of attack dog.

Michael Avenatti is the kind of snarling in-yer-face combatant that trump WISHES he had on his team now. He hates that Avenatti’s working for the opposition.

I feel the same way. He's probably no angel either.

But he’s sure getting the job done. And as a somewhat skeptical Charlie Pierce conceded in yesterday’s Esquire essay, “Michael Avenatti has yet to be wrong.”

Indeed. As fellow DUer ffr put it farther upthread,

More BOOM!

They just got "Tits & Clits" on the air on MSNBC.

Host Katy Tur had to go back on the air and apologize for her guest’s comment. I didn’t get the guest’s name but she did utter it, while describing the outrageous and sexist “club” Kavanaugh and pals belonged to in school.

Love this!

If Brett Kavanaugh is REALLY the wholesome, noble "choir boy" he says he is,

I would think he would withdraw his nomination for the sake of his wife and daughters, because this is ALL public, it's ALL on cable news, it's in ALL the papers, and details like these are OUT THERE. Available for all to see. INCLUDING his daughters. AND their friends and their friends' families. So it's very likely to come up in conversation on the playground and study hall and lunch period, and more.

One would think if this man is REALLY man enough, and chivalrous enough - as he loudly claims to be - his first thought would be to protect his wife and daughters, and take himself out of consideration to spare them this degrading new reality.

That he has not done so, and has gone in the opposite direction, insisting he's gonna fight this out and get on the Supreme Court, is VERY telling. Tells you volumes - indeed, whole LIBRARIES of stuff about him and his character. That he is SPECTACULARLY unfit to be seated on the high bench - where he would be in position to pass judgment in loads of new cases that involve a woman's right to privacy, choice, and justice.

Kavanaugh's nomination seems rather unsustainable at this point.

But of course, the republi-CONS may not want to go there. They may wind up being dragged away from their boy, kicking and screaming. But seriously, at THIS point, I don't know how his nomination goes through.

Avenatti is on the phone with Andrea "oh but her emails" Mitchell. She asked how he came to represent this third accuser. He said she contacted him. He also said he's had "over 3,000 requests for representation" from other individuals with similar experiences and complaints.

Frankly, if I were one of those women, I'D want Michael Avenatti to represent ME, too. He's freakin' FEARLESS. Where's he been, all our lives? SO glad he finally turned up!

Fuck you, Kavanaugh.
