The ongoing Political Musings of a former (now Stray) Yellar Dawg Dem.
This is a Feminist Blog, in the tradition of Susan B. Anthony.
"Just Tell Them...
I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Sarah's Ruby Red Naughty Monkeys Sold for $2,025 on E-bay.
Some lucky dog out there has scored the ruby slippers of the next POTUS, for a mere $2025. Wowza!
Up for bid (NOW SOLD!) are thee actual Red Naughty Monkey Heels owned/worn by Sarah Palin. I got the shoes from Aunt Sarah after mentioning that I liked them. They dont fit to well, so I decided to let someone else enjoy them. These are the exact heels that made headlines. If you search "Sarah Palin's Red Shoes" on a serach engine, you will find multiple blogs, articles, and stories on these shoes. You could own a piece of history!!! The shoes are NOT autographed, but the buyer has the option of having them autographed!! I included pictures of the shoes, the autographed pictures, the Sharpie pen, and me and my aunt (just taken a couple days ago).
The winner/buyer will receive: *Authentic Red Naughty Monkey Heels, size 7.5 worn/owned by Sarah Palin * 2 autographed pictures of her in the heels * A custom Sharpie Pen that was made for autographing while on the Presidential Campaign Trail. This pen will be used to autograph shoes if buyer would like shoes autographed.
******************** This is worth interrupting my "Real Feminism" series for. Haha. Cuz, after all SHOES! <<< (WARNING: Video at link not suitable for young children.)
UPDATE FROM THE SELLER:
Just another note. These shoes were bought in a small store in Juneau, AK. They were NOT paid for by the RNC. They were purchased by Sarah!!!
This was a comment issued by the store last year:
We sold our Governor a pair of red Double Dare Naughty Monkey shoes a couple of weeks ago. She just wore those shoes as John McCain announced Governor Sarah Palin from Alaska as his vice president running mate. Although not everyone agrees with her politics, everyone can agree that she wears “sexy shoes.”

So, put that in your pipe and smoke it Chris Matthews. Share it with the rest of your buddies in the MSM too!
In "real life" Dawg is a mom, a nurse, a pet rescuer and a tireless advocate for animal rights.
Dawg is happily married for thirty years and has raised three awesome children. She holds an advanced degree in Family Science, wherein her research was focused on women's support circles during parturition. Her dedication to Women's Rights is directly affected by her belief that motherhood should not be a sentence to isolation and disenfranchisement.
Dawg is on hiatus from political bloggery d/t the intense demands of her engagement in the No Kill movement at this time. However, she remains influenced by PUMA politics and reads the blogs of her fellow PUMAs (at right) regularly.
Thanks for the Visit, all you Stray Dogs and PUMAs!
"Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave.
