Please give us Democrats who have been doing battle with the radical right a few more weeks to celebrate our decisive victory. I would love 2012 to be an election where both the Democrats and Republicans have candidates worthy of a presidential election.
I always thought that Hillary Clinton didn’t want to be senator and used it for a presidential bid. Maureen Dowd agrees with me. Unfortunately she used her seat at the expense of New Yorkers. I do think she would make a great Secretary of State or Supreme Court Justice.
Here’s Dick Cavett quoting “the wild wordsmith of Wasilla. Her quote is so over the top I didn’t dare put it in for fear of being accused of falling for a hoax. But if Bill O’Reilly defends Carl Cameron for leaking it who am I not to mention it. Cavett is an exceptional writer, and please read this for a great look at Sarah Palin who not only doesn’t know that Africa isn’t a country but defends this lack.
I very much support all the protests today is support of same-sex marriage. Here’s where I get in trouble with just about everybody as I’m not a big believer in marriage for anybody but it legalizes and simplifies too many things to enumerate. For some reason I have always felt this way even when I played the part of starry-eyed ingenue. A part I mastered and kept up for many years.
I have been meaning to write a post on how Lucia, my bff, and I were walking up Steinway Street in Astoria Queens many years ago. We passed a wedding dress shop that had the tackiest wedding dress in the window. We both wanted it.
Lucia and I had passed the girlfriend fight part of our friendship; we had passed the petty jealousy stage and others and were now into what we called “the old shoe” stage. We were comfortable with each other.
And so in 1985, years before we ever heard of same-sex marriage, two straight women decided the only way to resolve the wedding dress problem was to get married.
We told everybody. We planned the wedding. We did everything but actually have it. Recently I was watching The New Adventures of Old Christine Christine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) proposed to Barb (Wanda Sykes) to keep her from being deported to the Bahamas. They went through with it.
That’s the second thing I have seen on The New Adventures of…. I thought of first. The first being birthday month, which in recent years I have turned into birthday summer. (I have birthday month in the archives somewhere written long before this show was seen.)
Life’s unfair but I want credit so if I’m not around the blogosphere much, well I haven’t been this past year because selling my apartment was so nerve wracking. This year I won’t be because I’m actually writing a book I don’t want to share until it’s safely written and published.
Usually I tell my ideas as I used to think they were too quirky to steal. Oh have I learned and I’m not talking New Adventures….
