Another one bites the dust!

Finally we had sunshine today, hopefully it will improve my
attitude.

I have felt bitchy ever since yesterday when I attended a convention
which ended up endorsing another male with no experience,
other then telling everyone over and over how his parents came to America with 19 dollars in their pocket and how he served in Iraq.
He did, but in a comfort zone, as a JAG (Judge Advocate general) in the Marines for about 6 months.
A sweet talking young guy with no credentials, over a woman who has been a Legislator and worked hard for her district.
He won with votes from feminists who have complained for years that they weren't treated right, but were entranced by his oratory.
Wait that isn't all, in 2000 he was a Republican who supported McCaine
but now at the old age of 30 he has been born again.
Kind of like Old Norm Coleman, who started as a war protesting Democrat, but switched to the Republican party when he saw he wasn't going to get any where and now is the Senator who replaced Wellstone after his death.

I have finally come to the conclusion, if a woman wants to succeed in the political
arena.
They should consider majoring in speech and theater, or maybe becoming a lawyer so they can become a JAG and only have to serve a few months in an arena they can boast about.

Do I sound bitter? Blame it on my age and the fact that now I am expected to smile and do the work for a candidate I don't believe in.
But Surprise!!!
I won't do that any more..that is one advantage you get at my age you can say

Screw you!!! with a smile!!

Screw you with a smile! HA! I love it!!!!

I am sorry that this happenend to you! It seems like a lot of people are "flip -floppers" ( as our good ol boy Bush would say* rolls eyes*)and laying claim that they laid their life on the line being in the military, when really, they were nothing more than a JAG! Go figure!

Keep on smiling...as Jenny's grandma would say " kill them with kindness!"! LOL ;)

Love ya,
Sarah

You are my evil twin! Sexism and politics both suck - the combination is corrosive. You are awesome! I wish you lived next door, too :)

For the first time in many years I chose not to be a delegate..my mistake..!
I am going to the State convention in June in Rochester as a volunteer.

Sarah, I am going to be so sweet, it will give them high blood sugar.

Kitty, at least in the same state..
