Here’s a Story of A Lovely Lady

Last night, I watched the Republican National Convention on PBS. Instead of listening to commentary by news organizations, I simply watched and listened. I went out of my way to absorb the message that was being conveyed to the American people. I know I am a difficult demographic to reach, being an educated, urban, single female trying to make it without giving excuses for how “hard things are for us gals.”  … [Read more]

#RomneyShambles Slinks Back Home

Man, for a CEO or whatever he was, this man, Mitt Romney, is a stone blunderbuss. He’s slinking back to the U.S. with his tail between his legs (come to think of it, probably about how his pooch felt on the roof of the family car), no doubt with wild thoughts about how to make a silk purse out of the sow’s ear that was his London tour.… [Read more]

Our Lips are Sealed

Apparently, this is the theme song for Mitt and Ann Romney. Want to talk about those Bain Capital years that you’ve retroactively accounted for? Nope. Do you have a response for the question about how, exactly, would you bring jobs to America when your experience is in outsourcing? Nah.  Do you consider yourself a leader when Massachusetts fell to the bottom of the barrel when you were governor?… [Read more]

Ann Romney Hangs Around to Cheer Up Cleaning Women

Ann Romney, wife of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, told a group of women last week (Apr. 23) how happy she is that there are so many mommies out there who have to work outside of the house.

“I love the fact that there are women out there who don’t have a choice and they must go to work and they still have to raise the kids.… [Read more]

Rich Girl

Must be nice… “You can rely on the old man’s money….”

The “birthday gift” that keeps on giving…

Brown Sugar

Today, countless will convene in celebration of her majesty, Lady Mary Jane.

For some, it is indeed a love relationship, a matter of matrimony – in good times and in bad, forsaking all other drugs, til death do they part, the stoner remains committed to his Mary Jane.

What is it about weed that engenders such fidelity?… [Read more]

The Toughest Job?

I have a confession to make. I am a stay at home  mom- and it is NOT the toughest job I have ever had. It is not even close.

Repetitive. Occasionally mind numbing. Monotonous. Often fun. And in the best of moments, unbelievably wonderful. But the most difficult ??  I know we’ve all spent the last week running from Hilary Rosen, falling all over ourselves praising stay at home Moms —  but as a woman who has done both, I don’t I buy it.… [Read more]

Yet Another Open Letter to Mitt Romney

Dearest Mitt,

You’ve been having some problems with the ladies lately, haven’t you? Your current favorability rating among us is 14 points lower than the President’s. You tell us we need to work, even if we can’t afford childcare costs, yet you say we should stay at home to rear our children. You were pro-choice back when it was cool but now it’s hip to be anti-abortion.… [Read more]

It’s A Wrap – Week in Review, April 15, 2011

Don’t you find yourself wanting to drift away at times? You know…just take a break and let your thoughts float away like a cool ocean breeze? I do! Like many of you, I don’t get to relax, enjoy nature and have ‘do nothing’ time as much as I’d like. Life gets in the way; responsibilities must be managed, chores must be completed and (paid) work must be done in order to repay debt obligations.  … [Read more]

Ann Romney – Mother of the Century

For a while there, it looked like the culture wars had been put to bed, if not for good then for a lengthy slumber. Turns out it was for slightly longer than a cat nap. And whom do we have to thank for this latest wake-up call? None other than Ann Romney.

In a recent tweet, Mrs.… [Read more]
