Older and with More Insurance: Hillarites
yawn, Warrior pose, sniffs coffee Mornin. Was there an election or something yesterday? Let me tell you how well I slept, after a full day away from the computer spent working with my hands, listening to music, planning my gardens. Anyway, I just watched something so funny (as in, you'll laugh), and regardless of what I'm about to read concerning the results, I am going to keep it in mind.

And I can guarantee you that the commitment of women my age and older to Hillary absolutely eclipses that of the youngsters to Obama. We just aren't as googoo-eyed about it.
We're not only older and have more insurance, we have time, energy, determination, strength, wisdom, courage, experience, and money. And we vote.
Obama kiddies will have another chance. We've been waiting all our lives for this.
The Geezer Vote usually greatly outnumbers the Rock the Vote totals. Historically, it's not even close. Further, older women, and women who've been pissed on their whole lives, don't pass up on the opportunity of a lifetime when it comes to having an impact on something as huge as the first Vaginal-American CIC. "Hillary" the brand is more than a floor wax, more than a dessert topping. She's the most symbolically potent (heh) opportunity ever in the history of Fuck You, to make every slack-jawed groper know what it means to feel fear and humilation that one can do nothing to end. I suppose there's even a 'happy' interpretation of what Hillary means to some women. But I think this part is the true core. I was just reading someone quoting Shirley Chisholm ah yes, here it is. Of my two "handicaps" being female put more obstacles in my path than being black.
Time for yoga.
