Fate, Fury, and a Lifetime of Wet Socks

Good God… We are most certainly in The Bad Place. It was hard not to projectile weep yesterday.

Everyone needs to rush to their nearest public library and read both Kant and Lysistrata right now. And, WTF? If the actual FBI investigation had lasted as long as Susan Collins’s social studies disquisition… There might be some evidence to support the multiple claims that this pasty bro-bag is unfit for a lifetime appointment to any job… nevermind the highest court in the land. The whole thing makes me want to rage donate… The best curse I heard on Twitter was, “I wish her (Collins) a lifetime of wet socks.” Wet socks (along with damp bath mats) are the worst and so I wish the GOP an eternity of them. How do you like them apples, you hillbilly Mothertruckers?

I remember being a girl, watching Anita Hill from our tiny town in northern California and thinking then, “Why doesn’t anyone believe her?” The saddest thing is that in all this time nothing has changed. This whole “We-believe-something-happened-to-Dr. Ford” line but that she’s somehow damaged or “mixed up” because “it couldn’t be our guy,” when there are so many people attesting to his antics just tells us that nothing has changed. We still don’t believe women… not at work, not at home, not in the doctor’s office. Republicans… Fate and fury are coming for you because… WAY to step on ALL the women—and a fair amount of men.

“If you want me, I’ll be in the bar…”  —said Joni Mitchell to just about everyone.

The Age of Innocents

I’m not sure who drew this remarkable cartoon, but God, I just love these kids…  I love their articulate, well-reasoned, fearless defiance. I love it when my own daughters have had the ferocity to say, “No, we’re not doing it that way…” and called the so-called adults in the room/world (yes, often me) on their shit.

I can’t wait to see what she/they all do next… #NaomiWadler. So many leaders like her.
