Things can only get better

It's been a busy week on Little Hunting Creek, my hometown...I had hoped not to have to say this, but I am very, very disappointed in Massachusetts. As my dad always says, just because a guy looks good, doesn't mean he'll be a good husband..I mean...Senator. Yes, he is hot, crazy Massachusetts voters, but I thought you were better than those crazy California voters who voted for Arnold. At least Arnold is married to a Democrat.
I'm also disappointed in Arlen Spector. Yes, Arlen, I too have wanted to tell Michelle Bachmann to be quiet many times myself,(usually my children lead me away from the TV and tell me to remember my blood pressure) but it is inappropriate for you to tell her to "act like a lady". If that means what I think it means, you just told her to sit down, shut up and let the men talk. And didn't you learn anything from the whole Anita Hill debacle?
Or is it that we can't teach an old dog new tricks?
In my experience, when we act like "ladies", that means we are quiet, submissive and let the older, wiser men do everything for us, because they know best.
Sorry, Senator Spector, there are no ladies here any more.

Well said. Amazing how we've gone from the political euphoria of a year ago to the current state of affairs. It's enough to make a person lose confidence in our elected leadership.

How can they go from Ted Kennedy, who fought the good fight year after year in the face of unbeatable odds, and who championed healthcare for all, to this guy, who plans to vote against the poor and the disenfranchised. I'm sick thinking about it

You are too funny!(Although it really isn't funny) I'm from Massachusetts and I am still shaking my head. I thought I would never see this day in my lifetime. The most liberal state in the union! I am not sure all the residents in MA realize how much Kennedy did for this state.
I'm hoping Joe Kennedy will run in 2012.

Here is a little side note: My husband, brother and sister-inlaw went to high school with the newley elected senator! As a matter a fact my sister-inlaw dated the newly elected senator in high school. I'm older, I didn't know him, but they all liked him.
