33. Over the weekend I went to a New Year's party
Edited on Sat Jan-09-10 02:25 AM by truedelphi
The party was held at the home of a woman who I don't consider to be politically thoughtful or active.

But wow, while the cake was being served and the last of the eggnog guzzled, the other women started talking a mile a minute.

"Well I for one am so done with the Democratic Party that I could gag before I vote for them again." This from someone who has been quite serious about gaining new voter registrations for the Dems for the last five or maybe even ten years.

"Me too! How could they do that health bill to us after we worked so hard on their behalf?" said someone else.

And pretty soon, the talk involved how we would go about creating a third party movement. Maybe it won't change things nationally for a decade, but if these over sixty something women are this much up in arms, I can only imagine that the fervor is growing in other age groups as well.
