Congressman Tim Bishop, Dis-Misses Women On His Website!

Dear Congressman Bishop,

I’ve come to your website to send you an email. I am asked to fill out a form telling you who I am and giving you my contact information so that you can respond to my concerns. The first form field asks me  for a “prefix.” The available choices, seen in the screenshot below, are Mrs, Miss, Dr. Other and Mr. Why is there no “Ms.” available in this prefix drop down box? Is this 1962? Seriously Tim, as a woman, I find this oversight a small but important detail. According to my very own congressman, I am either married, unmarried or “other?” Yet my husband, or anyone else in possession of male genitalia,  is simply, Mr? Wow & oink. Please add Ms to my list of choices. My tax dollars are paying for this website too.

One For The Ladies!

I just thought I’d try embedding a YouTube video here. Will you look at this guy dance? At around 2:10 minutes, when he dances with the pole, could you just die?!?! Admit it! You WISH you were that pole! And 10 seconds from the end, around 3:20! Oh! Oh! A magnificent heron spreads his wings! Is there anything more glamorous than Latin Music? Who the heck needs coffee in the morning? No more to this post. Gotta Rhumba!

Harold E. Ford Drops Out Of NY Senate Race To Get His Diaper Changed

Harold Ford quits senate race

Harold Ford Decides Not to Run for Senate Seat

Harold E. Ford Jr., is the 2 million dollar a year Wall Street guy, a carpetbagger who migrated to New York, from Tennessee, after losing the 2006 U.S. Senate race there. He wins the prize for one of the most ungracious political concessions ever. He withdrew his challenge to Senator Kristin Gillibrand due to a lack of support from the Democratic party, who did not think he could best her in a primary. It was also believed that the vulnerable Democrats did not want the distraction of an embarrassing intra-party smackdown that might open the field to a Republican challenger, as they lose their hold on the majority in the house and senate.

Citing his desire to do what was in the Party’s best interest, Ford withdrew his challenge to Gillibrand. But not without first boasting that “he could have beat her.”

It must have been past time for his nap. Way past time.

In addition, GRRR, GRRR, GRRR. Nick, of the previous post, asked, was I, as I seemed to be:

in favor of government regulation of bankers, including Goldman Sachs foxes like Paulson, Rubin, Geithner, Summers &; Bernanke?

YES NICK! YES! But NOT just regulation… JAIL SENTENCES TOO! Long ones. Served at Riker’s Island, and not some namby-pamby country club either. GRRR, GRRR, GRRR. GRRR, GRRR, GRRR. GRRR, GRRR, GRRR.

Glad to hear the comments from Nick, on the previous post. He touches on the very topics I’ve been wrestling with. I hope he doesn’t mind that I’ve republished his comment below.

He refers to me as a “populist on the Right,” and then thoughtfully questions if that is my “label” of choice. I wish he had been at the dinner table for the discussion preceding my recent cartoon about “Democrats” losing their sense of humor when it comes to Sarah Palin. Democrat was far too broad a label. I tried and crossed out Liberal, Progressive. Nothing was exactly right. He’s correct. There’s so much crossover these days. And, funny, I was just thinking how strange it is, living in an East Coast, super-liberal community. Everyone here assumes I’m a real conservative. But I worked the phones for Gore. Kerry & Clinton (H!). In 2008 the Democratic party I knew morphed into something I no longer recognized – or wanted to be part of. And I was no Obama fan. Without any formal religious background… my religious affiliation: Democracy. So, no chance I’d give up my vote. I voted for John McCain. I liked him, I respected him. I admired much about his 26 year Senate gig. Yes, I hated some of his ideology.It was my first vote for a Republican. No regrets. So, Nick, what do you think about the label “Centrist?” If you want to know what I prefer to be called, Centrist suits me just fine.
Hmmm Sounds like a nice name for a new Party! No?

Nick’s comments below:

So you’re in favor of government regulation of bankers, preventing too big to fail,and against Goldman Sachs foxes like Paulson, Rubin, Geithner, Summers & Bernanke? Like it or not, the Progressive movement is in agreement. I’m guessing we may disagree on many things (health reform, energy policy, etc.) but I would love if populists on the Right (I’m not sure what you prefer to be called) and populists on the Left/Progressives could join forces at least on financial reform to regain control of our country from corporations and their lobbyists.
