I didn’t see these fools up in arms when a REPUBLICAN President and a REPUBLICAN Congress were spending like mad and dragging us into expensive wars, did you?!

Complete Crazy Unleashed…

Apparently there are a number of groups who are challenging whether President Elect Obama is a natural US citizen.  Huh?  Yeah, exactly.  This seems to be pretty ridiculous to me.  However, they are getting some media traction, as the Politico ran the article I’ve pasted below today. 

There are two lawsuits challenging Obama’s legitimacy of citizenship. 

     1.  One such lawsuit alleges that because his father was Kenyan and under British rule, he’d have been born with dual citizenship. 

     2.  The other contends that he wasn’t born on American soil at all.  Philip J. Berg has filed suit claiming Barack Obama was really born in Kenya, not Hawaii.  He also claims his Hawaiian birth certificate looks fake.  So being the super slueth that I am, I pulled out my daughter’s birth certificate.  See, she was born in Hawaii.  Looks the same to me…so I’m not sure what Mr. Berg is trying to pull.  Now the birth certificate definitely looks different from mine, I was born in Iowa…but again I want to stress it looks exactly like my daughters.  So I’m a little unclear as to what is fake about it!  However Justice Clarence Thomas has passed this already reject suit around the court, so we’ll see if this goes any further.  You really gotta hand it to Clarence Thomas. 

Well this should be a good time for all I’m sure.  I would also like to point out one of the crazies promoting this is a former Swift Boater…and boy we know how honest they were now don’t we?!

Interesting and fun (well yes it is fun if you are a big political news reading dork like me) tool from CNN.  Check it out.  Not only do you get to fill remaining positions within the new Obama administration, but when you click on the pictures you get a little biography on each one.

Seriously, how is this not a good time???

President Bush: Regrets and a Book

I could have such a good time with this one, but I’ll leave it at this…

If he writes about his screw ups and regrets…how many books will he have to write to cover all of it?

What’s Wrong with Him? Or in this Case, Them??

Rush Limbaugh.  His name alone is enough to make my lip curl.  He is the boil on the ass of society. 

Sean Hannity.  Well, he just plain gives me the creeps.  He looks all nice and normal, and then he opens his mouth, and whamo.  It’s like holy shit-that’s an awful lot of anger and hate for one man.  He kinda reminds me of the Iranian President,  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, you know normal on the outside seriously whacked on the inside.  And hey, Sean, I did just liken you to Ahmadinejad because you too are ANGRY and NUTS!! 

Apparently “the game” is on.  The crazy right is flanking the Obama Presidency already.  This should be a good time.  I wonder why they haven’t figured out they are part of the current Repubican Party’s problem.  No one wants to hear it anymore.  We are hated and feared out.

My Daughter’s Generation

My daughter, Zoey, is eight 8 (or 8 and 3/4 if you as her).  We often talk about the things in life that are important.  I try to tell her everyday that she is the most important person in my life and that I love her above all else.  We also have conversations that I hope shape her future and how she views the world.  I’m very proud of Zoey on so many levels.  She can talk Rosa Parks and Helen Keller so beautifully that I am often amazed at the wealth of her knowledge and the insight she can give at age eight. 

One of my favorite things to tell her when she complains is, “If you don’t like it write your Congressman, or send Governor Kaine a letter.”  She hates it, but I hope she remembers it.

This last election for me was personal on so many levels.  I am a woman.  I’ll admit that my draw to Hillary Clinton was in part due to my gender.  To me she signified that women can do and be anything they want if they put their mind to it.  Zoey and I listened to Hillary Clinton’s concession speach after the primary was shored up by Barack Obama.  I had tears in my eyes.  I wanted Zoey to know that even though she didn’t make it all the way, she paved a path for so many of us and our daughters.  If I ever get the chance to meet Senator Clinton I hope I’m able to convey my respect and admiration for her.  Odds are I’d babble ridiculously as I did when I met Senator Kerry, but one can hope! 

I just finished an article by Ellis Cose in Newsweek Magazine.  One sentence brought me nearly to tears again.  (And yes, I’ll admit, I’m a sap.  I cried like a baby when Zo and I watched Brother Bear.)

He talks about his five year old daughter and her generation…“And it struck me that hers would be the first generation to grow up believing it was perfectly natural for a white woman and a black man to be president.”

That pretty much sums up how I felt about this election.  Zoey was very interested in the fact that Barack Obama would be the first African American to be President of the United States.  Her exact quote, “Wouldn’t it be cool if he were a woman too?!”



President Barack Obama

US voters and the entire world breathes a sigh of relief.
