Republicans: Making their party proud since….uh....hmm....

A vendor thought it would be a swell idea to sell this nausea-inducing pin at the Texas state GOP convention last week:

“If Obama is President will we still call it the White House?”

Apparently, the Republican Party has not halted production or sales of the pin - or even saying anything about it at all. Yet, its movers and shakers are still talking the talk of how we need lovely things like unity, using such choice-words as “colorblind.”


How about vocally disapproving of racism when you see it - especially in your own party?!

A little wake-up call...

I know four days equals “old news,” but I still feel the need to address Hillary’s June 7th concession from the presidential race.

To all her supporters: Ok, so all our hard work and unyielding faith has not produced the outcome we wanted (sigh). But, there’s no use wasting our time bitching about what could have been – now, we need to work with what we’ve got. I think most dems forgot they were technically on the same side – let’s remind ourselves of that. And in the meantime, rally together so we can finally celebrate some good news come November. I know I sure as hell don’t want McCain running the Oval Office, or my ovaries. (How’s that for alliteration?)

I know it stinks to lose something you’ve worked so hard for and wanted so badly, but it happens. Regardless of the outcome, Hillary has already made history in her campaign for the presidency. Thanks to her, children today have seen a strong woman push for the most coveted seat at the table. And all hope is not lost – there’s still a chance Obama could choose Hillary as his Vice. And how awesome would that be?

So, in conclusion: instead of whining like a child whose mommy wouldn’t buy them a candy bar at the Pick ‘n Save, get off your butts and start remembering why you’re activists – and what’s at stake if we continue to bicker amongst ourselves.
