Hey guys! Are you still there? Okay losers, it's Friday so the real question would be why, but since we bloggers generally favor the ephemeral over the existential I'm going to ask you something else. This week, the fact that the front-runner for president is a woman was even bigger news than it is every other week, starting with a maybe-auspicious election in Argentina, which was followed up by a gang-up by the "boys" at the debate, which was followed by her last-minute decision not to pose for Vogue, which was followed by an appearance at Wellesley, although not necessarily in that order I lose track sometimes. Anyway, it reminded me I hadn't really asked you this yet: how does Hillary Clinton being a woman make you feel about her? Because I've gut-checked myself here, and I'm drinking a beer which is like truth serum, and anyway every reservation I can think to have about this woman has way more to do with my femaleness than it does hers. In other words, as I've said before, Hillary appeals to my inner dude. But how do you feel? Take the poll if you can summon the energy!

Hillary is a hawk - ambition and being a woman are fine things but not when you continue to support a war that is bankrupting our country, our credibility in the world and annihilating countries back to the stone age.. She unquestioningly supports Israel, her new health care plan is a joke and I don't think she could tell you the price of a week's groceries for a family of four, on food stamps.

We are always stuck with the lesser of two evils, and I sure as shit do not want any Republican running things. Democrats have NOT shown any courage - her own husband was impeached for something incredibly minor and Bush doesn't even get a slap on the wrist for raping and plundering the Constitution?!! Dems say no, "Too disruptive and time consuming". They are weak cowards. I don't see any strong choices among the Dems, possibly Edwards but he doesn't have the money and he is a little too much for the poors, as he once was one. Hill never was, never will be one and has no idea what life is like for the majority of people struggling to keep it all together.

Time for a revolution - what are you waiting for? What will be the last, last straw for you? Because I have enough damn straws on my back already.
