Is it safe to go into the water?

Governor Chris Christie announced today ….

…….he’s running for the Republican nomination for President of the United States!! Calm down now, I know it’s hard to contain your excitement. This brings the number to 14! Fourteen Republicans have officially thrown their hats into the ring!

With an already crowded field, I have only one thing to say about Chris Christie jumping in:

(Also, the thread on Uppity’s post was getting pretty crowded with over 300 comments.)

BTW, this happens to be the 40th anniversary of the movie “Jaws”!

More Hard Choices for Hillary

Hillary Clinton joined Instagram today.

Screen shot 2015-06-10 at 3.49.38 PM

Her caption “Hard Choices” was in reference to the choice of red, white or blue pantsuit.

Many Instagrammers were amused, posting comments like “YAAS QUEEN,” “ICONIC,” and “You’re hilarious, I love you,” “my girl can joke,” while others were not amused, writing “No oldsters allowed on Instagram.”

In less than an hour, Clinton has gained almost 10,000 new followers and over 1,000 likes.

Off to follow Hillary on Instagram!

This Is Just One Reason Why I Love The Clintons……

They can laugh at themselves! These are two really brilliant people, but they aren’t preachy or snooty. I thought this video that was made for the 1995 Gridiron Dinner was hilarious! Even though Hillary doesn’t have the most perfect timing or delivery, she’s just goes for it!! Actually, many of the jokes were pretty funny….and those wigs!!!!

So here it is, another way back machine classic:

“Hillary, Hillary Gump”

Back to the Future…..1979

While I bopped along to the Bee Gees in 1979, a young Hillary Rodham gave her first extended interview as First Lady of Arkansas.

This highlight video was the only one I could find on youtube. The full video can be found here. Of course the interviewer had to ask her about her decision to keep her maiden name, saying that showed how “liberal” she was… I loved her response:

“Well, I don’t know about that. Anita Bryant didn’t take her husband’s name either, and I don’t think that she has a liberal image,” said Rodham.

“One gets the impression,” the host noted, “that you’re really not all that interested in state dinners teas and garden parties….” Hillary replied,

“Well that’s not a true impression. I’m interested in everything. I’m interested in social events and civic events, as well as my own professional life..”

He also basically tells her she should quit working and get into the kitchen where she belongs! Okay, he didn’t say it exactly like that…but that’s what he meant.

I have to say, watching Hillary 36 years ago, she hasn’t changed, still as brilliant as ever.

The year was 1979. The top three shows on TV were: 1. 60 Minutes (CBS) 2. Three’s Company (ABC) 3. That’s Incredible! (ABC). The most popular Christmas gift was the Sony Walkman casette/radio Best Film Oscar Winner was Kramer vs. Kramer. The Bee Gees, “Too Much Heaven” was Billboard’s number 1 in January, and “Escape” (The Pina Colada Song), by Rupert Holmes, finished the year off in December. Time’s Man of the Year was Ayatollah Khomeini. In 1979 I could have typed this blog post on this computer:Screen shot 2015-05-17 at 6.00.22 PM. …except there were no blogs…..and no internet.

So Uppityites….a few things have changed. But what about sexism? Have we come a long way sweeties? My Sony Walkman is long gone….and Pina Coladas are too much trouble. Pour yourself a scotch, pull up a chair and tell us what you think.

Doggone-it!!

The ladies of FOX news forget to pretend that they’re fair and balanced when they ask Bounty Hunter “Dog” who he likes for 2016. They are shocked, dismayed…and even saddened {sob-sob} when he pretty much endorses Hillary Clinton for POTUS!!!

Hahahahahahahaha!

Watch it while you can. I’m sure FOX will want this video erased from the inter-tubes.
