Oh, that Marie Cocco. Read it all.

It is not lost on them that in selecting Joe Biden to be the vice presidential nominee, Obama has chosen a Washington insider who voted in favor of the Iraq War -- two of the sustained attacks on Clinton that Obama used to devastating effect during the primaries.

The television cameras will linger on angry and tearful Clinton delegates in the convention crowd. The commentators will no doubt take this as a demonstration of disunity -- and not a few will, of course, blame Clinton.

But it is usually the job of the party nominee to build unity once a vanquished rival has conceded and made the right gestures. Unless the loser happens to be a woman. Then it's just like high school, and she must do the work.

Marie Cocco gets it! It's so like high school...but, of course, these are "grownups" doing all this!!

kenosha Marge has a great new piece up ....it also "gets it!"


"Pooped on by the Party (Fall in Line? I Ain’t Gonna Do That…)"

"Being so consistently pooped on by my party has now made me a dedicated Party Pooper.

I know that now that I have acknowledged that I am a deadender, a racist, a low-information voter and that worst of slurs, an old woman, admitting to being a Party Pooper seems almost admirable. Isn’t it fun being an older woman? They get to hit you with a twofer. A. You are old=ageism and B. You are a woman= sexism. Black women can get hit with a threefer. Aren’t they the lucky ones?

I know it is my duty as a Democrat to sit down, shut up and show up to vote for whatever candidate the powers that be want me to choose. Being a Party Pooper, I ain’t gonna do that.

I know it is my duty as a Democrat to ignore the bad behavior of my party and go into total outrage mode at the very thought of bad behavior by the Republican Party. Being a Party Pooper, I ain’t gonna do that.

I know it shouldn’t upset me that the party has chosen Joe Biden to be VP. I’m just supposed to forget, as so many women appear to have done, his despicable behavior vis-a-vis the Clarence Thomas hearings and Anita Hill. Being a Party Pooper, I ain’t gonna do that.

Being a good, loyal Democrat now seems to mean that you turn off your ethical standards in order to support the party. Being a person who finds it difficult to turn off my ethical standards for anyone and a Party Pooper, I ain’t gonna do that."


It's really right on the mark all you "high schoolers" out there...

Country before party always. Yes, they have put the onus on Hillary to unite the party rather than the man who needs the votes. Much as we heart Hillary; it's not going to happen. The DNC is in for a rude awakening....

"THE BEST WOMAN" ---Delegates, it's time to get shaken up ...watch this!!
Democratic Delegates Should See Gore Vidal's "The Best Man" (1964) Before They Make Their HUGE MISTAKE Tonight...




Gore Vidal's play/film "The Best Man" which was on TCM on Sunday night should be a must see for the delegates...It's about a convention where neither of the two leading candidates have enough votes...it has some great lines in it that I quote and a great surprise ending. We don't need the surprise ending right now...we need "THE BEST WOMAN" to be nominated! You'll also see how women really haven't come a long way, baby, as you watch this film and then jump forward to today....l

I have watched that movie maybe half a dozen times over the years -- so many great messages for us today.

Watching Hill last night, I was in tears, thinking, "This should be the next President of the United States," and instead we get the empty suit. What an inspiration she is!

Looks like Palin may be the VP for McCain, which I was thinking about a few months ago....that will put a little bomb under the ass of Obama...Here's something which discusses a woman candidate in 2003-04....with a link to O...

FLASHBACK: Democratic Messages–Does Obama Cut It? (With an Aside about Obama’s Organizing & Connection to One of the ‘04 Candidates)


I incorporate a piece I wrote in 2003 focusing on the 1992 Clinton campaign, then what was going on during the lead-up to 2003. One candidate seemed to really pick up on James Carville's advice back then about "generational promise." You might be surprised who it was...and along the way, I find a 1995 piece about Obama who was just entering politics...

I am putting this on all the blogs I link to suggesting we do not have to be slaves to the places they push us.
Who are you voting for?

I am Writing-In Hillary

Listen to the Aug 29th radio show on your computer from the PUMA people who went to Denver.

I called in at the end of the first hour.
