Hillary Clinton for POTUS: 2016 Presidential Campaign Will Be Dirty For Sure


Hillary Clinton for President 2016Hillary made it official. She is running for President of the United States. While I and many other women and liberal Democrats have waited for this moment for a long time, I can tell the 2016 political races are going to have a negative effect on media, culture, social media, and America, in general. For this reason, I vow not to participate in the negativity and the drivel.

Already, Hillary has had to field questions about how she will balance being POTUS and being a grandparent — a question no man has ever been asked when running for President (or any other office, for that matter). Critics have already started in on her hair, her makeup, her “new look” for the campaign — none of which has anything to do with her capabilities of running the United States of America.

When I ran for Congress in 2014, I was open about my status as a progressive liberal, bisexual, pagan, single mom in the very Red State of Mississippi. The Tea Party and right-wing Republicans around the country criticized everything about my physical appearance, from my eyes (“creepy”), to my nose (“needs a nose job”), to my weight (“a sad, pathetic overweight woman looking for attention”). I thought my stance as a progressive liberal, LGBT woman combined with my track record as an activist would make me the perfect candidate to fight for the people of my state. To many in my state and elsewhere, I was exactly what they feared in political office — a confident, capable woman who let it be known I would not tolerate oppressive institutionalized (male) bullshit.

Hillary can expect the same treatment, but on a much, much larger scale and exponentially more vicious.

Granted, Hillary has been in the public spotlight for decades and is probably accustomed to such treatment, but the fact that a female candidate’s appearance is even considered by the media and the voters speaks volumes about how far women still have to go in attaining equality on every level of our existence. In fact, the more a female candidate’s appearance is discussed, the more likely she is to lose her campaign for office. This all undermines Hillary’s decades of work for women and girls and her ability to be the Commander-in-Chief.

While it is easy to degrade the GOP (Teahadists, Tealiban, Right Wing Nut Jobs, Stupid Party, ammosexuals, etc.), contributing to the negativity will not help. Therefore, I will NOT post any political snark. I have personal knowledge of what the female candidate is going through. I know for whom I will vote and why, and I do not need to sink to the level of the other party.

NEWS: Jon Stewart to Exit “The Daily Show”, Leaving Liberals in Mourning


Jon Stewart of The Daily Show on Comedy CentralI finally got to see Jon Stewart’s announcement that he’s leaving “The Daily Show”. This is very sad for all of us who appreciate the amazing coverage he provides to politics. Stewart’s main audience is the bulk of 18 to 34 year olds and most progressive liberals in every age-bracket, while his arch-nemesis, FOX News (a.k.a. FAUX News) consistently feeds the fears of the 68+ crowd. I can only hope Stewart will change his mind and stick it out until the 2016 POTUS elections.

I remember the 2008 presidential election process. That was an emotional election cycle because, for the first time in my life, I was able to vote for a woman in the primary to have the chance to become the President of the United States. As I left the elementary school where I voted, I remember crying out of sheer amazement at how far women had come just by having Hillary Clinton on the ballot. She didn’t win the primary, but when it came time to vote in the main election that November, I voted for a black man, Barack Obama, another historical first for me and so many others who value justice, equality, human rights, and other progressive liberal ideals.

I watched Comedy Central’s 2008 election coverage online, with Stewart and Stephen Colbert at the anchor desk. It was so close. And I cried with happiness and amazement right along with Jon Stewart when Obama was elected.

I watched online during the 2012 POTUS elections as well. The presidential debates were harrowing as Romney seemed to win people’s favor … until his and his wife’s true colors came shining through with various comments directed at “you people” and his “binders of women”. Once again, Obama won. Thank the gods.

I cannot imagine Jon Stewart not being there when Hillary or Bernie is elected President of the United States in 2016. I hope he reconsiders when he is leaving. The progressive liberals need him. No one will be able to fill Jon Stewart’s shoes.

Thank you, Jon, for so many years of passionate work.
