Happy rainy Monday morning Pumas! (will it EVER end??)
SO, in addition to the delicious coffee, we also have CUPCAKES! to savor this morning as we reflect on obama’s two least favorite Father’s Day gifts yesterday. First, this heartfelt message from Cinie to her Number 1 Celebritician on his Special Day, and then lo! news arrives from Rasmussen that obama’s crappy performance is finally catching up to him. His approval numbers have fallen into negative territory for the first time. More people strongly disapprove of his performance than strongly approve. In fact, 40% of Democrats feel less than strong support for President O’Logo and only 8% of Republicans strongly approve. Holy Smokes.
In the political feminist circles I feel most comfortable in, the news of Terry O’Neil’s upset victory in the election for NOW president has been greeted with Hallelujah’s all around. Sounds good to me. Maybe NOW will finally wake up to the late 20th Century and get themselves a blog or something. Then they can ease into the 21st and maybe even set up a Facebook page. Twitter is likely WAAY too scary and modern. Ah, don’t listen to me — this rain is getting to me. I’m really glad O’Neill pulled an upset and will be the first to sign up to NOW’s new Facebook page.
Oh, and Paul Krugman, sadly, still believes in ponies. His heart is surely in the right place. And he’s correct in pointing out the preposterousness of the White House and Congress blatantly IGNORING the will of the majority (72% !!) of Americans who REALLY REALLY REALLY want a public, affordable, and universally available option for health insurance. But, Paul, wake up hon. Obama and his crowd NEVER intended to actually reform our health care system. You didn’t believe in the whole Hopey Changey song and dance, did you Paul?
