I can’t sit on it anymore. I’m going to spew forth some political garbage, so if that’s not your inclination, then, in the words of one befuddled, Jedi-mind-tricked Stormtrooper “Move along.” (Name that movie and receive a gold star for the day. Name the Jedi-mind-tricker himself and receive another gold star.)
You’ve been warned.
Does the estimable, esteemed Senator from Texas, none other than Ted Cruz, really think that by nominating a woman for his running mate (which, WHICH, is a totally different paragraph, but for sake of argument, let’s say it’s completely normal to nominate a running mate without being nominated yourself)…lord love a duck where was I? Does he really think that by naming a woman to “his ticket” all of us womenfolk will suddenly see the light and praise the lord and bow to the ground and say thank you, thank you, you’re the one???
Sheesh. I thought the stupidity of John McCain and his blunder that has blundered along now for eight nauseating years would have been warning enough that WE AIN’T THAT STUPID! We, of course, being the womenfolk.
I’m really trying to cut down on my sailor mouth utterances around here. Trying to project a more dignified image. Trying to be a good impression for my daughter. (Didn’t do so well last night, uttered something that even the husband looked at me askance over. Had to quickly backpedal. Learning curve, what can I say?)
Anyhoo. Ted Cruz. Carly Fiorina. Can you say double nails on a chalkboard? Ted Cruz’s voice is all creepy and slimy and makes my skin crawl with his self-righteous, condescending, contemptuous attitude. As if he’s some father figure, educating the masses (that’s us) on how to be human or something. What evs. I can’t even find the right words to describe him, he’s so indescribably disgusting. And then we add little Ms. Fiorina to the mix. Oh lord love a duck, a goose and a turkey. The woman who won only one primary vote, who insisted she saw something she didn’t see on some doctored videos, who gladly throws the womenfolk under the semis, the buses, the cars, the trains…the you name it. That woman. She’s supposed to be the savior of Ted Cruz’s gambit. And to then be one heartbeat away from the Presidency?????????????????????
Wow. That thought just took my breath away. Can you even imagine? Oh the horror. It’d be like imagining President Trump.
And now I need to go find the brain bleach. And something to calm my nerves. And maybe to begin filling out passport applications for all of us. And deciding whether Canada or Australia (that’s where the 9 year old says she’s heading if The Donald is elected President) would be a better destination.
