May 12 Prettybetsy commented on Jon Stewart on Hillary Clinton: "A Very Bright Woman Without the Courage of Her Convictions".
Sigh. We could really stand to get Jon Stewart back for the times that are coming up.
May 4 Prettybetsy commented on It's All Over Except the Shouting, Hating, Punching, Protesting, Race-Baiting, Tweeting, Debating, and (Come November) Voting.
@30 Hillary's not the role model of me. I'm still voting for Bernie as a delegate in my state's upcoming convention. I'll vote for her in the general, because of the D after her name, not the V in her pants.
Apr 29 Prettybetsy commented on Washington Democrats Aren't as Pro-Choice as They Think They Are.
I'm not one of his constituents, but a C on NARAL's report card by these standard me is just fine with me. In fact, I would almost welcome it as a sign that my representative's priorities were in order, in a world where so many liberals--conservatives too--care about nothing but sex and gender issues.
Apr 22 Prettybetsy commented on We Saw You Harassing Women Outside the Library, Being a Brat on the Bus, and Watching Porn on Mercer Island.
Ladies' Man at the library needs to be videoed, close up and at length. See how he likes it.
Apr 17 Prettybetsy commented on Hey, Look, the Abyss!.
Damn.
Apr 16 Prettybetsy commented on What Is Hillary Clinton Hiding? Why Won't She Release Transcripts of Her Wall Street Speeches?.
The most damning thing to me, from an article that quoted someone who was present at the speech, is that she praised Goldman for recruiting women (and maybe minorities, can't remember). Which is exactly the kind of clueless pandering to identity that progressives hate about Clinton. I don't blame her for not wanting that to be known.
Apr 4 Prettybetsy commented on Krugman On Development, Construction, Housing, and Cities.
Thank you, Dan, for staying on top of this issue.
Mar 26 Prettybetsy commented on It's Okay to Cook "Other People's Food," But You Better Be Ready to Talk About It.
Thank you. Rick Bayless seems like a nice enough guy, but his total lack of self-awareness had me cringeing all through that interview (I also noticed Pashman's brave but insufficient attempts to get him to recognize his privilege). I'm glad I wasn't the only one. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
Mar 9 Prettybetsy commented on It Looks Like It's Going to Be Clinton Versus Trump.
Get off the stage, Shillary.
Mar 2 Prettybetsy commented on No, Super Tuesday Was Not a Dream (Sorry, Chris Christie).
Matt is blatantly in the tank for Hillary. It's sweet that older black church ladies in red states like Arkansas and Tennessee get so much say in choosing the Democratic nominee (younger African-Americans were much more skeptical of HRC), but what really matters is how popular the Democratic candidate is in states that might actually go blue, like Colorado and Minnesota... the ones Bernie won easily last night.
