The ongoing Political Musings of a former (now Stray) Yellar Dawg Dem.

"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."

What Doesn't Kill Us Will Make Her Stronger : Hillary to Sarah Converts Have Been Around This Block A Few Times
"We chuckled when we read the piece in Talking Points Memo because we’re coming from two different places, but arrive at the same conclusion. The TPM piece is WARNING Democrats to stop attacking Palin lest they make her President in 4 years. We think these lunatics should continue to attack Palin, because very soon someone on Team Sarah is going to find a way to really endear Palin to many Independents and Moderate Dems who won’t want to associate with liberal loons who engage in this sort of thing.
Independents and Moderates were alienated by the loony Right’s attacks on Hillary Clinton. To punish the Right, in a sense, those Independents and moderates (of both parties) sent Hillary Clinton to the Senate.
Who knows to what higher office Independents and Moderates will send Sarah Palin to punish the liberal loons?
We have a saying around here: sometimes the universe sends you the wrong French toast; you didn’t get what you wanted or ordered, but in the end, you end up getting an adventure that takes you somewhere unexpected you never dreamed you’d go.
All the nastiness, pettiness, and downright evil Obama supporters continue to fling at Sarah Palin are, collectively, a heaping helping of the wrong French toast."
And then my own response to HillBuzz:
Such a wonderful essay! And, yes, I am one of those Independents/ former Democrats that doesn’t want to be associated with this kind of crazy. So I have joined Team Sarah … and I am fighting for her. Just the way I did for Hillary.
Don’t write Sarah off when it comes to gay issues. Sarah will uphold the law, and the constitution. She has recently appointed a “pro-gay” “activist” judge to the Alaska Supreme Court.
This is not because Sarah (or her appointee) are “gay activists” BTW. It is because the law is the law. And fair is fair. We (I am the mom of a gay son) will win in the end.
Long live Sarah Palin! What doesn’t kill us, will make her stronger. And, us Hillary to Sarah converts ain’t the type to lay down and die!
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.
