"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."

This Evening's Celebratory Brew...

In celebration of the Sexist Bloodsuckers on the Left... and the Right.

Directions: drink BEFORE you watch the returns.


  1. I'll celebrate if even some of them get their comeuppance (say: Reid, Jerry Brown, the House)

  2. BTW… I was interviewed by the local ABC affiliate here. About why I was voting. I told them… cuz women make up 51% of the populace and only about 17% of leadership positions … I was there to vote for the Ladies!!

    I think the guy was really surprised. He was expecting me to bash the Obamacrats (I live in a Conservative area.)

    My first REALLY Independent vote felt fabulous!! All over the party map!! But… women only.

  3. Well done, SYD! And heck yeah, women need to be better represented. We have the chance here in SC to elect our first woman governor. Looks good for her, too (and she would be the first Indian-American).

    There is one person for whom I will NOT be voting - my rep., Jim Clyburn, that backstabbing nepotist. No way.

    Thanks for the thread!

    Yep! Gender balance/parity is my issue from here on out until it's achieved. Go women!

  5. Solid wall-to-wall women on my ballot. It felt GREAT.

    Straight female ticket here! You want my vote, put a woman on the ballot.

  7. Just getting in from work.

    Tea Party took KY with Rand Paul.

    Who else is winning? Losing? How are the women doing??

    hey y'all!

    I had a blast today. I voted for every female on any ticket, including the libertarian for US Rep over Baron Hill AND Todd Young. I also got a chance I've never had before. I got to vote against men for judicial seats.

    Now understand that a family member of mine has recently been subjected to an extremely unjust "justice system" during which he got royally screwed by a judge. So I have a grudge against judges these days. So we had to decide whether to keep 4 judges. Two were women; two were men. I voted to keep the women and dump the men. Judge me if you must, but it felt great casting those votes.

    So today I voted FOR women and AGAINST men. And I don't fucking care and I won't apologize. I own my vote.

    It's sucking for women so far, SYD. I can't believe it, really.

  10. I see that Kelly Ayotte has won NH. Really? A Republican woman in NH?? One of Palin's "Mama Grizzlies."


  11. CNN projecting a Gillibrand win in NY!

    She is one of the good Dems. Happy to see her stay.

  12. Exit polls in Kentucky :

    "Seventy-eight percent of Democrat Jack Conway's voters dislike Sarah Palin – who stumped for Paul this fall – while 73 percent of Republican Rand Paul's voters are Palin fans."

    73% ain't bad, Sarah!

  13. Fox calling OK Gov for Mary Fallin (R)

  14. Susana Martinez (R) is the first Latina governor after winning race in New Mexico.

  15. Nikki Haley is the Governor of SC!!!

    (Best news this evening, I say.)
