Women’s Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President….

Text: ©Copyright, Uppity Woman 2012. All Rights Reverved.

After reading Texts From Hillary, I realize all of this bears recognizing, because it can no longer be denied:.

Rare specimen of actual Democrat with Leadership skills.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President,  sexist-pig legislative clowns wouldn’t even try to heap all the degrading crap upon women we’ve witnessed in the past few years.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, no throwback to Pithecanthropus Erectus would be comparing women to chickens, cows and pigs.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, The Pope would be told to run the Vatican, not the country.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, we would have a President who actually IS “What a Feminist Looks Like”.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, odds would have been good that she would have shown up at  that pig  Darrell Issa’s hearing personally–and waited for him to tell her she’s not qualified to testify.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, the Attorney General would be  rightfully challenging the Constitutionality of forcing women into vaginal probes, considering laws that make killing doctors  and their patients”Justifiable Homicide”.  Moronic Dipwads wouldn’t be calling Girl Scouts Lesbians.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, The Fair Pay act would have been passed in the first two years of  the current administration, during which time our useless Democratic Party “of women”  ignored it–except at 2010 election time as a scare tactic.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, women would no longer be forced to accept crumbs in gratitude. They would no longer have to beg for the rights to which they are entitled as human beings: They would simply be able to enjoy those rights. For a change.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, our President wouldn’t be repeatedly using women as bargaining chips. The Stupak Amendment wouldn’t have even been a thought, much less bear a Presidential signature. The Lilly Ledbetter order wouldn’t have even been needed because the Fair Pay Act would be in place and companies would Get The Message.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, women wouldn’t be used as hockey pucks and tools by which a President can divert attention and pump up opinion polls of women who have nowhere else to go.

Reality: The past four years have already proven: If Hillary Clinton were President, she would be spending more time working and less time vacationing and golfing.

Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, Tony Scalia would no longer be able to bleat about how women are not protected by the Constitution, because the ERA would have been shoved In His Pitted Face by now.

Reality: You get what you ask for.

Too many Democratic Women let the DNC bamboozle them. After all, if  the Party can’t hold our rights over our heads, make us beg for crumbs, and ‘dole them out’ to us as if they are “in charge” of human rights of second class citizens who carry their water, and if they couldn’t make the same promises over and over again  for decades and instill fear at election time, who would need them any longer?

Sorry yet????

Don’t let the same people con you again with all this talk of Hillary 2016 just to get your support for what’s already there, because all this sudden admiration from people like Ladder-Kicker NancyPelosi, who shot as many arrows as she could at Hillary in 2008,  is just a bunch of manipulative bullshit to keep you close to the Democratic Party until the day after election 2012 — after which time, you will be forgotten again just like you were in 2008.

Words are cheap and action by Barack Obama has been pathetically scant for a guy who is supposed to be “What a Feminist Looks Like”.  He spends plenty of time flapping his lips and stirring up turds on ‘behalf” of women when it benefits him. He spends little time actually doing anything useful for women, unless you include using them for his own gain by lobbing a Contraception Bomb over the fence in a timely way, knowing that the Republicans are stupid enough to react and help improve Barack’s wimminz approval polls. In the meantime, where is the Fair Pay Act that has been sitting around for nearly four years waiting for him to do something about it? Where’s that ERA that sat on Nancy’s desk for two years, while she and that other blowass Harry had the absolute power to do something about it? Where? Where? Where?

Where???

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am pretty damned sick of choosing between Terrible and Horrible at election time, knowing that, as  a woman, I HAVE NO real Representation. Hillary Clinton is literally beloved worldwide. She has been declared Most Admired Woman for 16 years consecutively. It’s only in the USA that she is disrespected, just as the rest of us women are disrespected by TWO parties. What part of this does not make you suspicious of this horrid patriarchy that has taken hold of two parties??? At what point do women finally realize they are 52% of the population and are being Had??? At what point does 52% of the population stand up and flat-out refuse to allow these two parties to block the right of “Personhood” to women? At this very moment, thanks to Republicans AND Democrats, Corporations have more “Personhood” than women do. Spermatazoa to have more “Personhood” than women do! So, all I can say is,  if the women of the USA keep begging for instead of taking their rights, and if they continue to forget that they have the numbers to control the direction of this country ,if they continue to let these two Parties of Pigs control our vaginas, our incomes and our lives, then we can all expect the same woman-hating, manhood-insecure jerk-offs to manipulate us till the day we die.

Here is some huge food for thought to all my sisters everywhere:  We’re on our own in fighting sexism and an entrenched nasty patriarchy –and we have the power to control the outcome of this fight, but only if we don’t let that power get watered down any longer by our penchant to help others with their causes, only to find they abandon us and do not stand beside us for OUR cause! If this remains the case, then we must stop standing in the rain and snow for everybody else and save our energy for our own cause, because it bears repeating: Women of the USA are on their own.

Hillary Clinton is the perfect example of  how the mediocre patriarchy has kept real leadership down because of a missing piece of flesh that often doesn’t even work very well –only to find you can’t destroy REAL leadership. Hillary’s competence, wisdom and skill spring eternal — she doesn’t just flap her lips, she actually ACHIEVES — and it makes them crazy. Everything she does, she does well –and it makes them crazy. Hillary Clinton is a threat to mediocre men in power, of which there are many. Very many. Let’s just say that our government is lorded over by so many mediocre men that, in a real competition with Hillary, they can’t pass muster — and they know it. So, they do what they know how to do best. They trash her Womanhood. We should not discount the also male- dominated Press, Pundits and their friends, the “Comedians” in this charade either. I’m talking both sides of the politically-dominated media here. No Free Passes. These people also have a lot to lose, so they have been all too happy to join in on the bashing of a woman who is just plain better at everything than they are. Beware of the Trojan Horses they are spitting out about Hillary 2016, when their real goal is Obama 2012 or Romney 2012, depending on which button you press on the remote. Let’s put it this way: If Hillary Clinton threw her hat into the Presidential ring tomorrow morning, you would see the faces of FOX and MSNBC morph in minutes.

We  women should not stand for this inexcusable and manipulative behavior from all sides for another minute. We not only should never forget, but we should never let THEM forget.

If the majority of women in the USA aren’t Sorry yet that Hillary, who had the most votes and the most delegates (even in the face of caucus cheating and intimidation!), didn’t become the Candidate For President, you’re slow. Very slow. Because no matter what happens in November, women are screwed.  Your Hillary turn will always come. You are next. Sooner or later, you are Next. Unless you stop it and stop it Now.

As a final note in this rant, please make sure you read Dirty Words On Clean Skin before Election Day. It’s an emotionally jolting read for a reason: It’s the truth – and it should never be forgotten, especially on an election day.  Just remember: You could have had a V8, but the Democratic Party made sure it wasn’t available. What have they done since then for you?? Take your time. I’ll wait.

In the meantime, since we women are on our own, please remember Maya Angelou’s words when she read her famous, “Still I Rise” for Hillary – and take the same attitude and cue :

You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt, but still, like dust, I’ll rise.

What is Hillary’s message for YOU? You only need to look to Ohio 2008 for your answer:

For everyone here in Ohio and across America who’s ever been counted out but refused to be knocked out, and for everyone who has stumbled but stood right back up, and for everyone who works hard and never gives up, this one is for you.

As Anita “Ani” Finlay, our own historian/author said to me in an email late last night,

We are her and she is us.

So ends my rant. But only For Now….

  1. Stellar. Tear jerker. Thanks. Over and out.

  2. I absolutely loved Hillary — last time. But what’s she doing supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in her role as SOS?? Where was her voice when Lara Logan was nearly murdered in T. Square?

    Hillary is notably absent from Obama’s current propaganda film (Bill’s in it — how could he???) but isn’t she the HEAD of the State Department, you know, the one that just allowed one of the allegedly pedophile Brothers to enter our country without secondary inspection???

    Why all this support for the Muslim Brotherhood, who will set women in Egypt back to the dark ages WITHIN MONTHS??

    What is/was she thinking????

    http://www.investigativeproject.org/3525/ipt-exclusive-state-department-barred-inspection#.T4NoHAAJEwA.twitter

  3. Kick ass post. Another one to add to the Best of’s list.

  4. what pamela said.

    I’ll believe Nancy et al are sincere about 2016 when they make a public statement telling the truth about 2008 and push for Hillary 2012!

  5. completely OT but utterly irresistible:

  6. BRAVO!!
    Throughout our history, when we faced difficult times, we were fortunate that a person with unique qualities and qualifications stood up and was able to lead us forward. We had that challenge in 2008 and once again a uniquely qualified leader stood up…but SHE was kicked to the curb. I think the fates are angry.

  7. Well T it’s just obvious that Hillary wants them all to set us women aflame as soon as possible, isn’t it?

    Hillary doesn’t work for you. SHe works for barack obama and serves at HIS pleasure, her job it to implement his policies not yours. If you wanted her to implement her policies, then you should have worked hard to get her elected president, if you worked at all to get her elected president.

    I am so fucking sick and tired of writing this answer down I could just spit. Have you never read a thing on this blog? Did you bother to listen to the recently posted Meryl streep’s tribute to her,specifically the part about her doing plenty that does not show in the underground.

    You can say “I LOVED John Edwards “last time”. But he turned out to be a filthy pig who cheated on his dying wife. But to come here and try that schtick on Hillary because she isn’t the President you want her to be is just plain bullshit, because she isn’t the President at all.

    You know what T, I’m not saying you are one, but you sound an awful lot like those fake “I was a hillary supporter, but…” people who have come here occasionally to kick her ass instead of praise her, always in that annoying passive-resistant tone. You know the ones. They break bread with the people who once said, I want a woman president but not HER. Or What about that blue dress and why didn’t she leave him. I liked her before but…..not now! How about She Voted for The War and Barack Didn’t? Of course, Barack didn’t, he wasn’t even a Senator at the time, but nevermind. Let’s see, what other reason can you use? Go ahead and think of one because not being President and setting policy is not a good excuse for not liking Hillary now. But don’t let that stop you. That is, don’t let that stop you someplace else, not here at UW blog. I just bled all over a post and here you are! Have you NO DECENCY AT ALL???

    The truth of the matter is, you just plain have a lot of nerve wondering how is it that hillary did a thousand things for America but there’s just this one…………one……………oneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee thing she isn’t doing that I want her to do so, to hell with her. If it weren’t for that “one thing” then it would be for “Another thing”.

    This blog and all the blood, time and patience shed by me and its loyal members to keep it going for four years was originally started for Hillary, not for you T. For Hillary. I could make a ist of the people I threw off this blog who pulled the same passive-resistant shit just before I showed them the door. You respect that or you take this passive-resistant shit someplace else. To put a finer point on it, either you are a strong Hillary supporter or you are not. If you are not you are most definitely on the wrong blog. Because if we want to hear this kind of shit, we can go to a Clinton Derangement Syndrome blog and get all we want

    One more thing, as I read over your past comments here, and believe me, I remember them, I realize that your purpose here now and then is nothing more than to insult me or throw a monkey wrench into a mood. You were circling the drain last time when you implied I was not a decent person. You are way past circling, T. Get off our blog. Get your own blog and do the work to get the readership and I’ll stop by and piss on you now and then and see how well you like it.

  8. T. First off- Hillary as SOS is not allowed to become involved in domestic political campaigns. For which thank God- she doesn’t have to stump for the fraud.
    Who, by the way, just happens to be her boss. You DO realize that he IS her boss right? She, as with all Cabinet members, SERVES AT THE PLEASURE OF the president.
    In the end, she represents that asshat. I sincerely doubt she had anything to do with allowing prehistoric assholes a free ride. That word in all likelihood came down from above. We all know how ofraudma loves him his cavemen.
    Your link states

    Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) on their way to visit government officials and think tanks in the United States.

    And additionally states this group won the majority for their Parliment. So then, this is a diplomatic visit.
    Do you think we should be giving secondary inspections to the Saudi delegation? It just is not done fcs. Even that Palestinian ass was treated as a diplomat. The madman from Iran also.
    Diplomatic delegations are given deferential treatment.

  9. AMEN.

    Don’t let the same people con you again with all this talk of Hillary 2016 just to get your support for what’s already there . . .

    I wouldn’t vote for BO for POTUS in 2008, there is nothing that would get me to vote for him now. NOTHING. My hand didn’t fall off after requesting a Rep ballot in the Illinois primary last month, and the world didn’t come to an end in 2008 when I didn’t vote D. And those people who think I am so easily bamboozled and hood winked by just words have another think coming to them.

    I’m still another bitter knitter and I may not have a gun to cling to, but I have a brain tho think with. And despite what some might believe, my brain still functions just fine around this issue.

  10. Sadly, although my brain functions just fine, I can’t type worth a darn.
    tho = to

  11. ROFL Uppity- we are in pyschic sinc again. LOL I like your answer better. You can delete mine.
    These “I used to like Hillary BUT…..” commenters drive me crazy. To my mind they are the same ones that come Nov will vote for the fraud- AGAIN- because “ooohhhh noooo, the dirty R’s will (start another war, overturn R v W, throw grannie over the cliff….) insert non thinking reason of choice. No true understanding of how government works at all.
    Blech.

  12. Same shit from this person last time. If it’s not a personal insult it’s this passive-resistant crap. It’s a no-go any longer.

    It’s a waste of time reaching out to people like this Mom. Because Concern Trolls Are Very Concerned, especially in an election year. If it’s not an Obot, it’s a far right shitbag with an agenda. Same people, different party letter after their names.

  13. Amen Uppity and PMM. And btw T….which rhymes with B…and could stand for Barack….the title of this post is “If Hillary were President”, NOT “If Hillary was a cabinet member under a misogynist golfer/vacationer/campaigner-in-chief”! Got that sweetie?

  14. Don’t delete either response. They are both wonderful. And it was neat to see those same responses back-to-back. I love how you (both) think.

  15. Uppity, you are on a roll today.

    with PMM on a wavelength!

    Fabulous!

  16. Oh I’m not deleting it. I want all of these shit stains to remain on this blog for posterity along with our responses.

  17. Last time I deleted exchanges I regretted it because I then couldn’t prove it. It won’t happen again.

  18. I threw people I actually care about personally off this blog for refusing to recognize that you don’t trash hillary here, and you certainly don’t PRETEND she’s your gal here. And you don’t trash any of our beloved members either. Of them all, there is only one I miss. You know who you are. You were wrong about your assessment. But I should have taken the time offsides to tell you why.

  19. LOL I LOVE this blog! It happens so often – some fly by will drop a bomb and then two or three of us will all jump in and put up the deflector shields.
    Community whack a troll games are so invigorating! lol We need to get a memo out to them- we lived through all this BS in 08. We have our facts and figures at hand and we are NOT putting up with this crap!
    I have a good mind to start trolling their ilovethefraud sites to give regular reality injections! Good for the goose and all.

  20. gtg.
    i’m on “vaca” the rest of this week and I have errands to run.
    But I”ll bbl.

  21. OT: Where’s FF? A second strong quake (6.5) off the coast of Mexico. No injuries or damage reported.
    http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/

  22. I have a good mind to start trolling their ilovethefraud sites to give regular reality injections! Good for the goose and all.

    Oh, what a fun thing! Maybe you want to bring a team with you? If so, I’m volunteering

  23. It’s time for a Rulez tab, much as I resisted doing it for more than four years. I’ve had it. This blog would have double the readership and comments if I let this crap happen, but the truth is, I vowed to make a sanctuary for 2008 PTSD Hillary supporters and it is going to stay that way.

  24. OMG Sophie. I needed that Henry Video! TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO irrestistable is right! I must put that up ASAP.

  25. Can’t. Watch. Henri. Looks to much like Sabrina. Maybe in a few months.

  26. We gotta get leslie out of Chicago. LOLOL.

  27. UW: I LOVE (YOU) WHEN YOU RANT-no one is better, or more knowledgable,—-you are the BEST

    “It’s the truth – and it should never be forgotten”

    Words ALL WOMAN SHOULD LIVE BY——NEVER BE FORGOTTEN

    LOVE MY ((((UPPITY’S))))

    PMM: LOVE TO YOU AS ALWAYS !!

  28. Mind blowing as always, Ms. Upps.

    *Standing O*

    This is what a feminist writes like.

  29. Wow Karen. I can’t tell you how good that last line felt.

    Michelina, we all love you too and we hope you know it, girl. You’re safe here. Always.

  30. PMM, hang in there and hold on. It does get better with time.

    HUGS.

  31. This T person is such a doody – stirrer.

    Reminds me of someone who used to post here who had the frequent habit of tossing out untrue halfbaked attacks against Hillz.

    Most distracting. I prefer the echo chamber. :-)

    If we are going to form a gang – squad – truth posse and visit other boards as they do to us – just to return the favor, get revenge and have a little fun – count me in.

    We can out spin the spinning journoLists.

  32. Save the video Mom, it will actually be a Pick Me Up when you need one. It’s simply adorably hilarious.

  33. One more thing. I’m more inclined this commenter could also be a republican with an agenda typical of the 2008 election season. I only say this based on past comments reviewed. Also, Obots don’t give a shit about the Brotherhood or some of the other topics of clash that occurred here in the past. They tend more to blame Hillary for Barack’s own stupidity and bad leadership-but they avoid bringing up his worst failures. But we will never know, and frankly, who cares? All I know is Enough is Enough. So now we can move on.

  34. Great post.Love the new Header F.F. :)

  35. It’s an old FF header. She’s just been very busy and heaven knows we have plenty of headers, thanks to her.

  36. Bravo, Uppity! Ditto Bravo your response to T.! So many good comments from folks, too. I’m going to have to read over your post again, and let it soak in, to help develop some of my own talking points, if only online. Sad thing: in the circles where we’d like to have a voice, we’re often shouted down, or who wants to hassel with Obamabots in person?

    Also, thank you for the coverage on “Texts from Hillary”. Made my day! Funny how I kept hoping Hillary might know about those guys, but to acknowledge them, invite them to the State Dept. play along – wish came true! What a great sense of humor, she has and what a class act!

  37. I love a good rant.

  38. Well, Uppity. This article needs to go viral. It is soooo well written. Facts, facts, facts. Thank you for your hard work with this blog and your teammates who assist. I know it is not easy, but you obviously have a mission. Now, I will go to the start of the Comments and start reading!

  39. Much needed catharsis, especially in the responses to T. Pitch perfect! I know how you feel about the “rules” tab. A few years ago I had to put one at DeHoS because of a terrible dust-up. Since then have been able to let it lie dormant.

    Great job, UW! We’re with you and HRC and sticking!

  40. Well Still, my problem is, I give people the benefit of the doubt at the first sign. It won’t happen again.

    By the way, you are EVERYBODY’s first stop to find out what Hill is up to. Thank you for all you do because I am sure it’s a lot of work.

  41. Uppity, I know you are angry when people like T post, but, in this case, I certainly enjoyed your and the Uppities responses. Glad you showed T to the door.

  42. LOL myiq, good rants love you too!

    Hey Liberty I love seeing you around here again!

  43. Most distracting. I prefer the echo chamber.

    There’s an idea. A Sidebar that says PROUD HILLARY ECHO CHAMBER. LIVE WITH IT OR GO.

  44. “…all this sudden admiration from people like Ladder-Kicker NancyPelosi, who shot as many arrows as she could at Hillary in 2008, is just a bunch of manipulative bullshit to keep you close to the Democratic Party until the day after election 2012 — after which time, you will be forgotten again just like you were in 2008.”
    *************************
    Well stated, Uppity! Great rant, and all too true. It is depressing that women will once again allow themselves to be bamboozled. Awareness is everything. I am hoping we can get the message out there and hve women take a second look at the manipulative tripe we are all fed daily.

    Thank you for all you do.

  45. Meant to say also: Especially thank you for shining the spotlight on the truth behind this 2016 meme. Anyone who takes that bait should contact me since I have a bridge for sale.

  46. Desperate to find a way to post here again. Had to create a new account, but be not afraid, I am still the same Honora!!

    Women are pawns used by both parties to get power.

  47. It worked, no more talking to my computer and wishing I could talk to all of you wonderful Upities!!

  48. It is depressing that women will once again allow themselves to be bamboozled.

    And yet the question remains: where are we going to go? I’m not voting for either of these guys–just down-ticket. But even then–who is sincerely working for real people (which of course includes actual women)? Where are there any statesmen [sic]? Besides Warren and Gillebrand and possibly Murphy (CT), who else is there? As long as the money and the media keep viable candidates out, the outlook is dismal.

  49. In local news, CT (my adopted state) repealed the death penalty:
    http://www.wfsb.com/story/17390246/death-penalty-repeal-bill-passes

  50. Ann Romney responds to Hillary Rosen and makes many excellent points. The DNC retreated from the attack.

    oops, they can compare “for the first time in my life i’m proud of my country” to this woman who has always clearly been proud of it.

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/ann-romney-hits-back-over-dem-claim-she-150125077.html

    MS, breast cancer, 5 boys raised, first lady of massachusetts, executives wife… don’t know much about her but so far, so good.

    Must look up her history when I get the chance. Where did she go to school? What did she do with “at risk kids” exactly? etc.

    the video is good but 10 minutes long:

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/ann-romney-hits-back-over-dem-claim-she-150125077.html

    She kind of reminds me of Cindy McCain.

  51. oops, listed the link twice. the new comment box with the testy scrolling up bit was sticky.

  52. I think Hilary Rosen blew it. She had a good point to make and messed it up. Unfortunately, she’s an RIIA overlord, so there’s some extreme unpopularity there. Still, I feel no need to deify Ann Romney. Now, if she ever publicly said something positive about Hillary Clinton, I would think a whole lot more of her and defend her like I do with another politician who I wouldn’t ordinarily defend!

    I tweeted this earlier:
    Of course Anne Romney works. She manages the maid, cook, gardener, driver, and a $21.6 million annual budget.

  53. Nah Sophie, Anne has somebody managing all those people. And who among her detractors wouldn’t love to be in the same position financially? This jealousy thing will eat people alive. It’s got to be one of the worst of all emotions.

    Seriously though, if money is so damned evil, how come so many people are tryiing to get somebody else’s money for doing nothing? It rolls downhill. To us. They want our money too.

    Leave it to the Democrats to pick a spokesperson who helped arrest young obots for downloading music. lolol.

  54. And like Myiq said over at his place, this Rosen person is making a high six figure, possibly more, salary. What the hell does she know about the “I of we”? These limousine Democrats are such hypocrites.

  55. Something to feel good about:

  56. Sure Romney was born on third base. So was Bush. Both of them. So was Gore. So was Kerry. So was Tedward Kennedy. So were most of them. And those that weren’t born on third base filled their portfolios with inside trading over at the Congressional Country club.

  57. I will say this, Laura Bush has quietly done more for women than Michelle Obama has. And she still does it.

  58. As a matter of fact, the only president we have had who wasn’t born on third base and didn’t have affirmative action helping him skip two bases was Bill Clinton.

  59. I saw this great tweet that said something like, Newt Gingrich wrote a check that bounced, which proves once again that he’s qualified to be President.

  60. Rosen’s original comment wasn’t about Ann Romney’s wealth.

    Mitt said his wife was his “touchstone for women who are struggling economically.” Rosen tuns around and says what does she know, she’s never worked a day in her life. The InterWebs get all up in arms saying Rosen said being a mom isn’t working. Rosen already has baggage and no one loves her (except Greta, who is a good friend).

    I think they’re all full of shit and am withholding my Ann-worship because I don’t feel this was enough of an injury to merit sainthood. And I tweeted what I did to be snarky.

  61. Uppity, thanks again for this wonderful forum! By the way, I just check the “Texts from Hillary” page, and read the fellows, Stacy and Adam, are calling it quits after meeting Hillary. And yet they have confidence the concept will live on somewhere on the Internet. Q. Who could start a new site, with “Texts from Hillary – The Next Generation” or some such related theme? Or, shall we say “meme”? Would love to see you carry it on, and like the first site, have people submit suggestions. Any thoughts?

  62. Oh, and Meechelle piles on with an apology to Ann.
    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/04/12/first-lady-stands-up-for-ann-romney/

  63. I have come to the conclusion that the Democratic and Republican parties stalk women. Constantly. They are stalkers. Nothing more.

  64. Liberty I am doing all I have time to do while still keeping my life together sister. I can’t be any more than I am right now.

  65. Hell Sophie, I don’t worship here either. I don’t even know who or what the hell she is. And I don’t even care.

  66. I hate to OT but I say Tray’s mother says she thinks Z shot her son by accident or in a panic. Let me just say that if Z ever said that, he would be a sitting duck, because he couldn’t claim “self defense” any longer and the law would not protect him using that florida law that resulted in him not being arrested to begin with.

  67. Uppity Re: 2nd incarnation of Texts from Hillary – understood sister; doing same myself. (Reason for taking some days off – to catch up.) If something comes to mind, as an inspiration for an imagined “Text from Hillary”, I’ll share it. Sometimes the mirthful spirit visits, pictures are spotted, and the imagined dialogue unfolds. Will keep you posted. Have one in mind…

  68. Hillary is INVIOLABLE here!

  69. Whoa! T turned out to be a troll?

  70. Hillary is INVIOLABLE here!

    It is WRITTEN!

  71. Let it be Written,
    Let it be Done.

  72. Stacy and Adam, are calling it quits after meeting Hillary. And yet they have confidence the concept will live on somewhere on the Internet.

    I’m thrilled they’re stopping now. The timing is right. It goes out at a high point, and it’ll stick in people’s minds. The meme of ‘Bad-Ass & Iconic Hillary’ is now out there. If the boys’d continued, the concept would’ve become shop-worn and unfunny.

  73. True. And, Bill had negative affirmative action — the cheap-white-trash-Bubba factor, dragging him back. Let’s face it…that’s why the DC political and media elites couldn’t stand him.

  74. O! Most Righteous Rant! Beloved Blog Mistress! Thanxxx

  75. Babs “Good enough for these people” Bush comes to Anne Romney’s defense. Not sure that’s a plus, Barbara Bush is an arrogant snob with a stick up her ass. If it were Laura it would be more helpful.

  76. Ani, you’re exactly CORRECT when you said about Hillary, “She is us and we are her.” I’ve been saying that — exact words, I swear!! — since 2008. It’s exactly why we reach for mult-tissue packs when, eg, we see or hear something great about her (eg, the Meryl Streep speech vid that recently made the rounds). It’s why the fierce loyalty we feel to her — and the intense dislike we feel for Obama’s theft of the nomination from her — will NEVER abate. It’s why we shall never forgive and never forget. It’s why we fantasize about Obama’s defeat in November — not that that’ll heal the wound (although it will be delicious vengeance).

  77. You are most welcome NES. I built up a sweat on this one.

  78. Upps, I recognize many of your tweets in the rant above. Righteous.

  79. Personally, NES, I think Obama will win in November.

    Words I wouldn’t mind eating.

  80. Rosen has apologized using the “Poor choice of words” detour.

  81. Jennifer Newsom, director of “Miss Representation” discusses why the press still hates women.
    http://entertainment.time.com/2012/04/10/miss-representation-doc-director-on-why-the-media-still-hates-women/

  82. Hilary Rosen was doing Her Master’s bidding. The swipe against Ann Romney was deliberate and comes straight out of the Obama re-election campaign’s playbook meme of “Mitt is so old-fashioned and square and rich and out-of-touch, he doesn’t get real people’s problems.” Obama himself launched the opening salvo earlier this week in his little ‘non-campaign’ speech attack on Ryan’s budget. He made fun of Mitt’s use of the word, “marvelous.” “Who uses ‘marvelous’ to describe a budget?”, he declaimed. “Who uses ‘marvelous’…at all?”, he followed up with. Message: Romney’s like something swishy and square — like out of Cole Porter’s America.” Rosen was reading from the exact same hymnal on CNN yesterday: the prelude to her swipe at Ann Romney was her point that Mitt was too rich and out-of-touch. The take-away message from her attack on Ann: Mitt is so old-fashioned, square and rich that he has a stay-at-home wife.

  83. “Personally, NES, I think Obama will win in November.”

    Upps, why must you hit me with bad news in the morning?!

    My view: It’s too early to tell. Currently, I give it a 55-45 in favor of Obama, but expect that will change in the coming months.

  84. Romney’s like something swishy and square — like out of Cole Porter’s America.

    If only he were that hip.

  85. Ah NES, but i adore you even if you are caught up in Wishful Thinking. The republicans just don’t offer any charisma. Duds. Nothing but Duds. And they have managed to drive women away in droves at no cost to Obama whatsover.

  86. I don’t get it. I challenge anyone to deny I am a feminist. If a woman wants to stay home and she can afford it, so what? just so long as she doesn’t use her power to demand that it’s what ALL women should do, I don’t give a rat’s ass what she does or doesn’t do all day.

  87. Agree that at this point in time it would seem like an Ofraudma win. There is a chance that his campaign will make more blunders- at least one of which might stick. Trial balloons are floating about the tubz and newz about Mormonism being weird. One can only hope the Mormons respond with non stop ads on that despicable Wright. There is soooo much dirt on Obama and his nefarious “guys in the neighborhood” and let’s see- Khalidi, Alsammare, et al- had McCain used even SOME of it- we might not have been subjected to the last three years of cruel and unusual punishment.
    One can wish and pray no?

  88. But but but Upitty! Wimminz only have the right to choose what de fringies want em to choose! Only if they make the “right” choice do they get to choose! At no time are we actually supposed to use our own brains to make our own choices!

  89. One can only hope the Mormons respond with non stop ads on that despicable Wright.

    Too late. Rev Wright had some outrageous Easter sermon and the right media bit in and the left media had a festival of news cycles all day Monday about how raycist people are to bring up Wright now when B0 hasn’t even gone to his church for years.

  90. If she were president, she should get the federal government out of all Americans’ health issues.Sadly, this will never happen because it makes the population easier to control. There is no doubt Hills is much more qualified than Bammy, but she would still be pushing for larger government, just as most all politicians do from both parties.

  91. Cole Porter rocks it old school.

  92. brilliant, uppity, absolutely brilliant – much love to both you & ani for your courage & insight…

  93. UW, may I re-blog this? Ya know, I have to keep my Hillbilly barn Fair and Balanced:)

  94. Hill Billy, I’m so glad you’re here…. I’ve been wanting to tell you that I started drinking Moonshine!

  95. NoEmptySuits, on April 12, 2012 at 2:20 PM said: Edit Comment

    “Ani, you’re not being paranoid. But, don’t worry, I’ll send it through only one route now that I know your concern: it’s her best buddy. Hill stays with her when in town.”
    *****************************

    Brilliant, NES. And thank you for doing that. I so appreciate your support — and your comments upthread.

  96. Hillybilly, you are always welcome to reblog anything I post, without asking. I’m sure this one will get your readers salivating though. lol.

    You know Hillbilly, the truth is we adore you here. You know why? Because you respect how we feel and you don’t come here to deliberately push our buttons or do some passive-resistant shit.

    And just because i complimented you, does NOT mean you can post some shit-kicking music!

  97. Whoa Hill Billy…doncha be doin’ anythin’ but luvin’ on our Hillary now…you hear?

  98. Thank you sunsound. Now that you have passed moderation with your first comment. don’t be a stranger!

  99. I think — as an act of love — our Hill Billy should promise to read Ani’s book. I’m happy to send him a copy through UW. Let me know.

  100. I love Cole Porter.

  101. XX Ani.

  102. Obama drove our SophieCT to drinking Moonshine.

  103. Re Mormons. I know I have mentioned this before but it bears repeating The very worst manager I ever had in corporate America was a mormom. He was a small man in all ways. He enjoyed hiring well-educated women and then relegating them to menial jobs in an effort to drive them away. It was his lot in life, I tell you. The thing is, if you had a network you could learn how to get into the company via his job openings. He always had openings, because women booked the hell out of his organization as fast as they could once they got their foot in the door. I myself didn’t take any of his shit and was able to lateral-move myself away from the bastard in record time. He had a wife who was deathly ill and he drove her like a whipped horse. I despised that bastard and there is one day in my life that still stands out as nearly as good as the best sex I ever had. That was the day he was assigned to work for me. It was my pleasure. He didn’t last long, but then again, that was the company’s goal and I was rewarded for his speedy exit.

  104. SophieCt- thanks for that info- I missed that- mostly because I just detest watching the news nowadays- I watch the local news and some of the national stuff- then I have to turn it off. Kind of glad I missed it- that faux preacher race baiting hate monger has no business calling himself a Christian imo. Had I heard about it, it probably would have ruined my Easter.
    That being said, I still hope the Mormons come full on with the money to beat back every dirty low down trick the chicago con man club rolls out. As I said, there is a TON of material to use- if only someone would have the balls to do so.

  105. This blog and all the blood, time and patience shed by me and its loyal members to keep it going for four years was originally started for Hillary,

    YES.

  106. Too late. Rev Wright had some outrageous Easter sermon and the right media bit in and the left media had a festival of news cycles all day Monday about how raycist people are to bring up Wright now when B0 hasn’t even gone to his church for years.

    I don’t know about that, SophieCT. I think the RevWright story has new legs now that he’s baaaaack. True, Obama left his church 4 yrs ago, but he’s stuck with the lie he then told (I heard nuthin’, nuthin’, I tell ya….). Anything that exposes that lie is fair game, still. And, if the Left attacks Mormonism (and they will), Obama’s former church, which, by his own admission (see his autobio fiction), was formative in his development, is fair game.

  107. Exactly Mom. And I would hope that Anne Romney isn’t one of those fringies in the OTHER direction.

  108. I challenge anyone to deny I am a feminist.

    No one holds their life that cheaply, Upps.

    No, seriously, could agree with you more.

  109. LOL NES!! But we have a distillery in CT now and their product is a moonshine (http://www.onyxspirits.com/). Of course, Hill Billy might say it’s not genuine, being made by Yankees and all.

    I have never cared for vodka so I miss out on all those fun “tini” kinds of drinks. (I’ll have a regular tini made with gin, but none of the vodka kind). Anyway, this moonshine mixes with anything and I’m finding that I enjoy it. Funny, because I only bought it so I could make homemade vanilla extract!

  110. The republicans just don’t offer any charisma. Duds. Nothing but Duds. And they have managed to drive women away in droves at no cost to Obama whatsover.

    Upps, I think the first point, while true, is irrelevant in ’12. People want boring competence in hard economic times, and are surfeited with Obama’s noxious and expensive ‘charisma.’ Your second point is very relevant, and damaging to Romney’s chances. Whether the damage is fatal remains to be seen, in my view.

    I’m secure in knowing that you’ll still like me even if I’m — YET AGAIN — forced to eat crow.

  111. There is a common thread in all the “Christian” hell- all the big three Abrahamic religions and sects and sub sects. Wimminz are EEEEVVVIIILLL! Lady parts are the cause of every misery on earth.
    Just kills me- cuz the Jesus I know welcomed women, sinners, tax collectors and all other kinds of socially unacceptable, “unlcean” types.

  112. If only he were that hip.

    I KNOW!!

  113. Let it be Written,
    Let it be Done.

    It is done.

  114. Mom, all that stuff was tried in 2008 and it rolled right off him like a pancake on a greased griddle. Alsammarae is way over people’s head, for example. And the Republicans, for a bunch who claim the most basic people among their rolls, has a horrible way of presenting things in a complex way. They are the pits at this and so far, I don’t see an improvement.

  115. The only thing the Republicans are good at are dirty tricks and whisper campaigns. They suck at everything else in campaigns. Plus, the Democrats absorbed the dirty trick skill and improved upon it.

  116. PMM: One quote of Al Sharpton that I found priceless was, “It’s time for the Christian Right to start meeting some of the right Christians.”

  117. He didn’t last long, but then again, that was the company’s goal and I was rewarded for his speedy exit.

    There’s justice in the world then.

    I don’t think Mittens has a problem with women though (and I’m not saying you think he does, Upps). Reportedly, he hired a woman to be CFO of Bain Capital. That’s a big math-heavy job for a girl.

  118. Lol on “duds” I’ll take a Dud over the american idol president any day! At this point I might even vote Nixons ghost over the fraud!

  119. As I said, there is a TON of material to use- if only someone would have the balls to do so.

    True that, Mom. McCain decidedly didn’t have the balls to use it. (Why the effer ever ran for the nomination if he was going to be scared off by the prospect of challenging a black man is beyond me!). Romney decidedly has the balls…ask Newt and SanitaryPad. Besides, now Mitt doesn’t have to do it … Superpacs will. Bring it on!

  120. Hilarious SophieCT.
    I’ll start really worrying if you reach for the meth.

  121. Well I will reserve my judgment on Mittens with respect to women, NES. I’ll watch for signs one way or another. So far I have zip except he has been forced to explain his wife’s lack of work, which is really kind of laughable for a billionaire whose wife probably enjoys her life not having to earn that bread. I’ll bet she gets to play tennis a lot more than most women can. How awful.

  122. I wouldn’t call making a cottage industry and huge living from inciting riots in the streets a Right Christian thing to do, though, Sophie.

  123. Jesus loved his women disciples — his Marys and his Marthas, so to speak. It’s right there in the NT; ain’t nuthin’ Benedict can do about it. Also, let’s not forget, even in the accepted 4 gospels, Jesus appeared to women at his resurrection. If that’s not a sign he wanted them to lead his church, what is?

  124. Heh next to Barack, Nixon was an Honest Man.

  125. Mom, all that stuff was tried in 2008 and it rolled right off him like a pancake on a greased griddle.

    It did, indeed. Maybe that’s because people didn’t know Obama then. Now, they can see him for what he is. If we can see that he doesn’t really like this country and wants to humble it, can’t others get even a whiff of that?

  126. Not to mention how Constantine’s boyz in the band buried the writings of Thomas under a boulder.

  127. NES: I understand you want your revenge, but Republicans are still Republicans. For example, Rep. Alan West said Tuesday, “I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.”
    http://news.yahoo.com/rep-allen-west-says-81-house-members-communists-221608758–abc-news-politics.html

  128. Allen West. Just one more thing that’s wrong with the hijacked republican party. That sounds like their ancestor, McCarthy. What’s next? Hearings? “communism” means nothing to americans any longer because they are dumb enough not to consider it a threat.

  129. Heh next to Barack, Nixon was an Honest Man.

    T R U T H

  130. NES at 3:57 PM:

    Right on!!!

  131. I challenge anyone to deny I am a feminist.

    No one holds their life that cheaply, Upps.

    Laughing my ass off.

  132. I do want revenge, SophieCT. Alan West isn’t running for Prez tho’ — Mitt can’t be worse for the country than Obama. The Reeps are going to hold the House regardless of whether or not Mittens wins — and they’re going to do so because the public is still sick and tired of the level of spending (that is why the Dems lost their majority in the House).

  133. LOl Constantine’s boyz! Oh yes, suppression is the name of the game. If it threatens the boyz club, it’s out. If they could erase that part of the Gospels where Jesus appears first to Mary Magdalene and instructs HER to Go and tell the Good News- they would – in a heartbeat. Just as an aside I firmly believe that the decline in priestly vocations is the work of the Holy Spirit. She has had enough of the menz distorting the facts. When the numbers get low enough- they will have no choice. Heck- when I was a kid, women were nothing. Not altar servers, lectors, cantors- nothing. The nuns could enter the sanctuary to take care of the linen. Now women do all those things- on top of running the schools, the offices, the fundraisers etc etc etc.
    The Holy Spirit will have Her way. Probably not in my lifetime and for sure not while the head of the inquisition is Pope.

  134. By the way Hillbilly, I don’t disagree about government and health care. I think health care should be not for profit and heavily regulated on overhead. I do not think it belongs anywhere near the stock exchange.

  135. Drinkin’ moonshine and free books? I luv this place! And UW, I see you know me all too well. I had a Little Jimmy Dickens video all set to post. :)
    BTW, Allen West is my pick for 2016 after the repugs get done throwing this election for Bammy and his thugs. I just hope Allen does not sellout to the machine by then.

  136. Trial balloons are floating about the tubz and newz about Mormonism being weird. One can only hope the Mormons respond with non stop ads on that despicable.

    The recent Mormon ads playing here are just as sweet and moral and inviting as they have ever been. I wonder if that isn’t a really smooth tactic in preparation for the summer and fall Chicago mob hit on the Mormons and Mittens in particular. If I didn’t know any better, and I weren’t already down on organized religions, I’d think of joining that group. Their ads are that effective.

  137. Oh, and I love Cole Porter.

  138. Hillbilly, I don’t know which makes me want to shoot myself in the head more. Allen West or Jimmy Dickens.

  139. Yeah Mom, “Go and tell the good news” But don’t forget to stick that Revelations thing in there, even though it’s out of place and sticks out like a sore thumb. It will keep these people in line and crapping their pants.

  140. Thank you, Ups — God love you – I sure as hell do! Almost as much as I love HIll … but only because I have met HIll, talked with her and saw her big soul shining in her eyes. Maybe I’ll be lucky enough someday to meet you, too. Meanwhile I thank you over and over for wonderful posts like this! Grind the bastards down!
    PS, my friends thank you, too!

  141. Uppity, the Sharpton quote is from 2004. As you may recall, at the time, the national conversation was centered around being religious enough and patriotic enough. I am hardly a fan of his either, but still, even he can say something right once in a while.

  142. You know there’s that old joke about Mixed emotions being when your Ex spouse drives your mercedes off a cliff. That’s how I feel about the revenge I want.

  143. Hey what happened to that other republican nutbag, the one everybody laughed at all the time, he ran against Obama? I forgot his name. Even his own party doesn’t want to know him.

  144. Keyes. That’s it. Crackpot. Bet Hillbilly loves him. lol.

  145. Hill Billy, be careful about Alan West. One day, you’re going to find yourself in front of a committee being asked, “Are you now or have you ever been a commenter at Uppity Woman’s blog?” And you know, there’s a long paper trail proving your guilt–reblogs and all! I’m sure we’d all be willing to be character references for you, but we may not be the kind you need.

  146. Islander, you tell your friends to stop by! xo.

  147. Hahah you’re ahead of me Sophie. I just went over to Hillbilly’s place and told him he was really going to get it from his readers for blogging this post…and I offered first aid over here at UW.

  148. H44 on fire today. And another mention of Ani too. I also see that Obama is carrying on his tradition with campaign employees. He pays wimminz on WH staff less than he pays the boyz.

    http://www.hillaryis44.org/2012/04/12/its-ann-romney-day-in-the-war-on-women/

  149. Allan Keyes is my Homebilly!

  150. Just returned from H44. Wow!

    BTW: Alan Keyes is a nut case. He didn’t even bother to rent in IL when he ran for the Senate against BHO in 2004. That was after BHO’s crew had the Tribune “uncover” sealed divorce records of the 2 major GOP opponents who could have given him trouble.
    Then the Trib endorsed BHO for POTUS and that was pretty much the end of any relationship with theat paper for me. I had never supported a candidate they endorsed before that – it was always a GOP and I was a brain-dead Dem at that time.

    Still don’t like BHO and still don’t like the Trib.

  151. Pshaw Oswald, Sophie posted that video early this morning. That’s probably where one of your people got it. I didn’t think the first one was all that funny when I saw it though. Now part deux is gold. I’m putting it up in the AM so more people can see it.

  152. Sophie, I think Sharpton would have made a great comedian. He can be a very funny man with great delivery timing.

  153. UW: We all would have been spared if he’d chosen comedy as a career.

  154. Great article, Uppity! Been lurking for a long time, but this is my first blog EVER! “Only Hillary” is my mantra … extremely tired of the boyz!!!

  155. Hey Islander Two! You go girl!

  156. UW: We all would have been spared if he’d chosen comedy as a career.

    HAHAHAHAH!
    I don’t think Barack would sell many tickets though.

  157. Well let’s see, from what I’m reading, Jay Carney says he doesn’t know whitch Hilary Rosen the press is asking about because he knows so many of them. Overall, I would say that i hope Ms. Rosen has at least one other client because this contract is over. Guess she’ll just have to go back to helping to arrest kids and fining grandparents for illegally downloaded songs on grandma’s computer.

  158. LOL UW. I suppose she could try going back to BP too. HRC, probably not. The republican gays (GOProud) are piling on too:

  159. Jaysus, she worked for BP too? She loves her those jobs with gutter employers, hey? must be how she landed a contract with Obama.

  160. …….Eagerly awaiting a comment from Islander Three!

  161. Fredster posted a link at TW with a must see notation, so I came over. Brilliance should be acknowledged. That was a brilliant post. Thank you.

  162. Islander Two…Welcome!!!

  163. If you google “hilary rosen” you will get a GOP ad.

  164. Haha already???

  165. What a fun blog — Hillary Love, reality-slaps, smack-downs of those with CDS, hillbillies, moonshine, cats, bible interpretation, Lebanese …. love it all !! ;)

  166. Didn’t find the GOP ad when I googled Hilary Rosen, but just learned that she supported SOPA. well goes hand-in-hand with targeting kids and grannies who stole music — ya know thugs like that.

  167. fembots..it was the first hit when I googled (before the real hits).

  168. Is she an attorney?

  169. What a fun blog — Hillary Love, reality-slaps, smack-downs of those with CDS, hillbillies, moonshine, cats, bible interpretation, Lebanese …. love it all !!

    Can’t say we aren’t different! :)

  170. Uppity! You preach it, sister! I love this article. It got me as fired up as a church full of faithfuls at an August hell-fire revival on a Saturday night in the rural South. As a child, I had to attend more than one such event, and still recall the fervor with which the Spirit moved those worshippers.

    Your post is powerful and spot on. We women have been pushed around long enough. It’s time to push back.

    Sophie, I totally agree with this:
    “I’ll believe Nancy et al are sincere about 2016 when they make a public statement telling the truth about 2008 and push for Hillary 2012!”

    The Dems need to admit they ambushed Hillary’s campaign, stealing her votes and calling for her to quit – when she was freaking winning. Until then, to hell with them.

  171. spirit, scuse the pun, but if we expect them to admit what assholes they were, we’ve got a better chance of seeing God…

  172. Has anybody mentioned lately that choice curse from Mad. Albright — “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t support other women.”

  173. Yay! My “Dirty Words on Clean Skin” just came in the mail!! Off to read…….

  174. Woot! I knew it! I knew there was an Island Three out there somewhere! Island has friends. Lots of friends!

    Yes Three..do you mind if I call you Three?

    Yes, a VERY special place in hell.

  175. Is…is….there an Island Four?

  177. Very nice post, UW.

    I am pretty damned sick of choosing between Terrible and Horrible at election time,

    Looks like all the powers that be are selecting again. For themselves. Whilst the rest of America gets to, sort of, choose, from the options already decided.

    A recurring theme…

  185. Infighting Hahahaha.

  186. islander four can’t type and says she’s too old to learn – it took us years to get her to go on line — we set up her browser and bookmarked her to his44 and later to uppity and very recently youtube — she’s not very adventuresome — hates the news — hates TV, too — she says its all propaganda and both political parties are flushing the country into the crapper — says she’s grateful she won’t live long enough to see the end, which she foretells is soon. Islander, islander two and islander three still have hope (Arkansas type, not Chicago conman type) and proudly cover their bumpers with Hillary messages.

  196. Maybe I’ll be lucky enough someday to meet you, too.

    uh huh…take a number.

  197. but only because I have met HIll, talked with her and saw her big soul shining in her eyes.

    lorac will be so J.

  198. Whoa! The Islanders are multiplying.

  199. Damn NES, I am not responding to your retweets. Do you have any idea the nutbags that fall out of those trees?

  200. Yes we have many Islanders!!!

  201. imust…:)

    sneaking a peak in to say hi…which chapter are you on?

  202. I just sent some love to the catholic league for declaring that us Hillary supporters need to get over it. I told them I did get over the church though. And how about that one hit to powers that included hate for homosexuals and adopted parents all in one fell swoop.

  203. Catholic League ‏ @CatholicLeague
    Glad to know Hilary’s fans are in a state of apoplexy. You’d think she was outed by their hysterical reaction. Get over it and grow up.

    Uppity Woman Uppity Woman ‏ @UppityWomanBlog

    @CatholicLeague I am not over her and I don’t have to be. But I did get over the Catholic church years ago,& people like you are the reason.

  204. I have to say, while I am trying my best to embrace twittering (yeah, I know, I know…tweeting)…it seems a bit drive-by to me.

    Ok, getting out my butter churn now…

  205. Point of clarificatio: Is a right wing #WarOnMorons considered infighting?

    ROFL!

  206. I know there’re are lots of “nutbags,” Upps. But, I’m engaged in a larger war — The War of Retribution. For me to win, Obama must lose; the only ones who can deliver that outcome are The Repubs. I have put on my ‘spermsuit’ and am swimming toward the goal.

  207. Ani, they’re not mutually exclusive. I tweet AND make my own butter!

    I like watching multiple conversations and topics fly by at once. I’m using an outdated version of TweetDeck–before Twitter bought them, so it makes it easier to follow the topics in columns rather than Web pages.

  208. I, personally, am too tired to continue the fight – and too disillusioned. But good rant and good points.

    Whoa girl! That ain’t no way for a Lebanese to talk.

  209. SophieCT — I so appreciated the lesson and now I am a reluctant tweeter — I can see how it could be fun but I’m still figuring it out.

    And if you can churn your own butter — then that’s TWO you have up on me!! :)

  210. Well, sometimes I’m helping you NES. There’s this guy who says he studied Obama and knows what he’s about. I told him if he really wanted to know Obama’s game to buy a certain book and gave him the Amazon link. Some good has to come from this miserable election.

  211. Ani, to be totally honest, I don’t churn. I use the food processor. Granted, it’s ancient–it’s a Regal La Machine I (they don’t even make these any more but the crap they make now would never have lasted 25 years). Anyway, it’s very easy to make butter in a food processor and delicious!

  212. Hold the hook – it’s going to take them a few days to stop meeyowling, “I made thraad!”

    Bahahahahaha.

  213. Wow — I am impressed. Truly. I worry if I made it myself and it was that good, I just get out a loaf of sourdough and never stop til I hit the heel…

  214. uh huh…take a number.

    Cracking up, here.

  215. Quick! Somebody give Senneth some protein!

  216. Well, sometimes I’m helping you NES.

    Ayup, I see you there. Thx.
    Nice on giving that guy the link.

  217. Hey Mom, Presidentin’ is hard work!

  218. Oh noes!! an Obot replied to me like all friendly and shit. Ewwww. Likes my avatar. Ummm, hello, it’s a baby PUMA!

  219. Yeah nes, but when some crackpot tweets me out of the sky and tells me I am an uneducated loser, they are going to get their jaw broken.

  220. So my Governor (Dan Malloy) was on Maddow because CT just became the 17th state to abolish the death penalty. Pretty cool.

  221. Okay I don’t make butter but I make a mean loaf of bread.

  222. Gimme some!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  223. Abolish the death penalty? Hell I think we should expand it to include pedophiles and rapists.

  224. Upps, you’re so funny.

  225. Love the Catholic league tweet. You’re on top of your game today.

  226. If Hillary Clinton were president, we’d have a better country in every way.

  227. Amen!

  228. LOL!

  229. Mmm. Homemade butter. I think I would add Orange flavoring to it for pancakes and stuff.

  230. Yeah nes, but when some crackpot tweets me out of the sky and tells me I am an uneducated loser, they are going to get their jaw broken.

    Yeah and yum.

  231. Ani: If you visit me and my girlfriend in No.Cal, we’ll feed you our homemade bread, made with our own sourdough starter (now 1.5 years old).

  232. LOL socal on adding orange flavoring to the butter because the reason I make my own is so that there are no additives!

  233. NES, I’m there! Can I bring my hubby, too? If I deprive him of homebread bread, there will be hell to pay. He is a southern boy after all and like him some TLC.

  234. Regarding the Romney/Rosen brouhaha, I think both sides made dumb comments. What the heck is Mittens talking about, saying Anne is a “touchstone for women suffering economically”. What does that even mean? That poor working moms can look at Anne and think “one day I might marry a millionaire”? So whatever he was trying to say, I think he did it badly (what a surprise!), and I’m wondering if Rosen did the same, that she meant to say Anne hadn’t worked in the workplace not that she had never done any work. But then of course she kept going on and made the whole thing worse.

  235. Sophie, my Mom & I used to make whats called “better butter”. You melted butter, added an equal amount of a healthy oil and a tbsp or two of lecithin granules, and whip it til smooth. It was really good. Anyway, we would make two batches and put a little Orange extract (the alcohol based stuff, they sell a natural one at Whole Foods) in one of the batches. I would put it on my homemade bisquits. It was so good I put on weight and stopped making the butter and the bisquits both.

  236. Actually, for the better butter, I misspoke. You don’t “melt” the butter, you let it sit out until it gets soft enough to blend in the other ingredients.

  237. FWIW, my take on this: Romney meant out on the campaign trail, his wife talks to a lot of women voters to gauge their concerns. Rosen attacked saying that because she is not in the work force she knows nothing about it.

    My problem with this whole thing is — Rosen is still a member of the pundit class, political strategists, whatever — they know absolutely nothing about me or mine and are in no position to criticize anyone. She is an attack dog for the White House, having been there 35 times.

    I remember all too well what it was like as a Hillary supporter having my character besmirched, my motives misattributed and my beliefs misrepresented by this bunch — of which she is one. She is in no position to criticize anyone. Further it is like the General Petraeus or General Betray Us ad from MoveOn.org — whether or not one agrees with the sentiment, you are not going to make inroads with moderates or indies by insulting the character of someone who has spent his life in service to his country. Mrs. Romney has survived MS and breast cancer in addition to raising her 5 kids. The comments came across as disrespectful. Rosen has no idea what Ann Romney knows or doesn’t know.

    And I say this growing up as a poor kid of a working mom.

    just my .02.

  238. Dennis the Menace said that he personally knows of three women named Hilary Rosen. We must be mistaken Ani, cuz the WH never lies about the registry.

  239. No kiddin, McNorman! Did you wanna pass out today when Carney would not admit it was she?

  240. I was lmao. That Carney is a real piece of work. I always thought Gibbys was out there, but this guy is redefining that word “deflect.” lol

  241. I don’t remember much about Rosen, just her name. So, shes an Obama pitbull?

  242. Yes socal. She led the copyright download war.

  243. Hilary B. Rosen is a Managing Director of the Public Affairs and Communications Practice of SKDKnickerbocker.

  244. Also CNN contributor according the bio that the Huffpoo has.
    huffingtonpost.com/hilary-rosen

  245. Rosen is being fed to the lions. Kirsten Powers just dumped on her in her post @ the Daily Beast. So far, the only one that is actually trying to support her is Greta.

  246. Yes and that is unfair as well — she was taking her marching orders from you know where and now she is a pariah. Well, we’ve all seen that one before.

  247. Absolutely, Ani. Love southern boys.

  248. Obama is desperate to win women’s votes. When Romney came out and made the accusation that the job losses in the O administration were 92% women, that must have scored a point. Ergo — send Rosen out to counterattack.

    If yesterday’s gamibt would have worked, there would be no condemnation of Rosen, but since it backfired, she must be excoriated and fast — big time damage control.

  249. NES, are you going to have a gathering? Inquiring minds wish to know.

  250. Thank, NES. He is a doll.

  251. My fantasy is that all us UWers have one someday. :)

  252. Er, I meant a gathering, not a doll — although I wish all of you that, too…

  253. I agree completely Ani. I don’t think that she ever would have imagined being thrown under the bus this readily though.

  254. Yes Ani. Everyone wishes that as well. We must be content to live it up in her livingroom for now. :D

  255. Barack on workingmomgate:

    “My general view is those of us who are in the public life, we’re fair game. Our families are civilians,” he said. “I haven’t met Mrs. Romney, but she seems like a very nice woman who is supportive of her family and supportive of her husband. I don’t know if she necessarily volunteered for this job so, you know, we don’t need to be directing comments at them. I think me and Governor Romney are going to have more than enough to argue about during the course of this campaign.”

    I suppose now the fact that Meechelle listed both Malia and Sasha as “senior staff” on that African vacay means that we should not say a peep.

  256. Goodnight to all. I can only surmise that tomorrow (Frday pm news dump) should bring more icky news.

  257. @Ani….I am presently reading, and deeply engaged in Chapter 8. If not for the need for food, water, etc….I would be even farther!

  258. NES, are you going to have a gathering? Inquiring minds wish to know.

    Yes, mcnorman!! But, only if UW shows up (burkha optional).

  259. imust is being such a suck up.

  260. Speaking of “J” – that was a pretty good retort, I have to admit, when you said you’d take a photo of you and Hill having dinner!

  261. Thxx lorac’ers. But, don’t all my “retorts” please you?

  262. NES excepted, I’d say that most Lebanese don’t want a southern boy! lol

  263. Er, I meant a gathering, not a doll — although I wish all of you that, too…

    ROFL! I have one too!!

  264. Hah! I no longer have a southern boy doll. (I have a doll of a different gender.) But, in my time, I’ve had many a southern boy doll.

  265. Quick lorac’ers!!!!!!!! Tell imust what happens at the end of Chap. 8 of Ani’s book. (imust is being such a suck up…reporting on her progress to Teach, and all.)

  266. Hey, hey I’m not being a suck up! I just can’t believe this book! I guess you two wise-achers have already finished the book?? (plug your ears NES & lorac…suck up alert)
    What’s so great is the way she has laid out the whole story with such detail….leaving a true accounting of what REALLY happened in 2008.

  267. What happened at the end of chapter 8? Hmmmm how to say it without saying it…. the very last words are “Daddy will save me”

  268. lol from newest His44 article:

    If Sexism and Misogyny had a son – it would look just like Barack Obama.

  269. Ani – I made the phone call you suggested – and it turns out you were right – it’s the publicist who can “help” me….

  270. Great, Lorac –that was my feeling, particularly since she is a star. In my situation, either would have been fine, but for her, publicist is a quicker channel, I think.

    Imust — you just suck up all you want!! :)

    I want you to know I have just been trapped in an elevator for the past two hours and ten minutes. I was just pried loose. So I have to write this up for the building and then I am going home to sleep!!

    Carry on, yo beautiful lovelies!!!

    xoxo
    Ani

  271. But, in my time, I’ve had many a southern boy doll.

    This comment is useless without photos.

  272. But, only if UW shows up

    I could send somebody and how would you know?

  273. I wonder how many women who were set up to take the big boy’s fall at work are watching the Rosen story.

  274. Dennis the Menace said

    OMG! This is hilarious!

  275. Sophie, my Mom & I used to make whats called “better butter”. You melted butter, added an equal amount of a healthy oil and a tbsp or two of lecithin granules, and whip it til smooth.

    This is a mistake, right? You meant add basil and garlic, make it into a chilled roll, cut it in pats and service it with Italian bread rubbed with olive oil and romano. Right?

  276. We’d KNOW.

    You cracked me up with the basil and garlic!

  277. Hey I was serious on the basil and garlic!

    How would you know? Not possible.

  278. Sophie, she thinks we wouldn’t know a fraud. I give us 5 minutes of conversation with an Uppity imposter before we outted her and asked what she did with our Uppity.

  279. “And still we rise.”

  280. Sophie, she thinks we wouldn’t know a fraud. I give us 5 minutes of conversation with an Uppity imposter before we outted her and asked what she did with our Uppity.

    Somehow, I don’t doubt this for a minute…

  281. “Islander, islander two and islander three still have hope (Arkansas type, not Chicago conman type) and proudly cover their bumpers with Hillary messages.”

    Islander, Love the comment about the difference btw Arkansas-hope vs. the Chicago kind ;)
