Smart Liberal and Female

President Barack Obama

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


Election Night…

Well this has brought out so many feelings in me…

First off my husband and I do not see eye to eye when it comes to politics.  He works in the political arena…meaning we have been “campaigning” for the last 18 months.  Seriously…I have often felt that this election was never going to come.  I’ll be grateful to have his Republican ass at home…so I can gloat! 

Now, it’s very exciting tonight to see Obama sweeping the nation.  Big wins for us in Ohio and probably Florida…we shall see.  I am still waiting to see if my state of Virginia does me proud.  The damn polls have been closed for over 2 1/2 hours and we don’t know the outcome.  Count the bleeping votes already! 

I am disappointed to see my hope of a clear majority in the Senate not coming true.  Although, that majority would have been counting that bastard Lieberman…so…you do the math.  I say kick his ass out of our anything.  That traitor can take a hike.  I would like to remind people that the two Maine “RHINOs” (Collins and Snowe) will hopefully vote with us! 

Quite honestly, I don’t know about anyone else, but I am EXHAUSTED.

Election Night Hot Spots…

What’s up with those not so red anymore states?  That seems to be the question on everyone’s minds. 

I live in one of them, Virginia.  I actually just made what I assume is my last volunteer effort for the Obama-Biden/Warner/Connolly tickets today.  A last minute literature drop on doors.  Now this should have been quick and painless.  It’s a door hang and you are out…however I didn’t make it till about 5:30 PM.  UGH!  Have you ever tried to find houses in the dark?  It’s not a good time!  We did manage to finish our packet, and I’m calling it a wrap.  I hope it was enough. 

States to keep an eye on:  Virginia, Georgia, and Indiana.  All will have numbers out early.  All three were thought to be Republican strongholds.  Virignia is showing Barack Obama with about an 8 point lead (depending on your poll), and the other two states are close.  We NEED one to go blue!!  Two would be great!  And three would mean I could pop open a bottle of super cheap champagne, drink a fair amount, go to bed, and then wake up on November 5th with a hangover, but delighted.

So go vote Virginia!  I want my home state to be the first “red state” to be a “blue state” tomorrow night!!!;_ylt=AsFdVlfYWzWQ5oDTJ5uuMuBp24cA

Hillary Clinton Gives Speech of a Lifetime at George Mason University

What can I say?  I’m a Hillary Clinton fan.  I supported her through the primary, and it was a tough loss. 

Tonight though she gave the speech of a lifetime.  Any Clinton supporters still on the fence should have heard her speak.  It was amazing!  She talked about John McCain using her words in an ad, her exact quote, “My name is Hillary Clinton and I DO NOT approve this message.”

The McCain Camp talks about putting country first, well Hillary Clinton actually has put country first.  She has done over 75 events to support Barack Obama and his quest for the White House. 

All I can say is, she is one classy lady! 

It’s all in your perspective

I got this ditty in an email from a friend…wanted to share.  Thanks Annette!!

I’m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight…..




* If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re “exotic, different.”


* Grow up in Alaska, eating mooseburgers, you’re the quintessential American story.




* If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.


* Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you’re a maverick.




* Graduate from Harvard law School and you are Unstable.


* Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.




* If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor,  spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 2 years in the United States Senate representing a state of  13 million people while CO-sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.


* If your total resume is: local weather girl,  4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking executive.





* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.


* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.






* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.


* If , while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state’s school system while your unwed 17-year-old daughter ends up pregnant , you’re very responsible. 





* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values don’t represent America’s.


* If you’re husband is nicknamed “First Dude”,  with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.





OK, much clearer now.
