Kathleen Turner at Press Club: Wow.

Posted without comment, but worth your time.

September 2, 2012

White straight male at 61 with more in common with inner city single moms than the GOP

More in common with a junkie trying to get straight, a gay person trying to get married, a recent college grad trying to find a job.

More in common with an immigrant trying to avoid being deported, a Muslim owning a store in Dearborn, a Christian at a food bank, an Iraq war vet with PTSD.

More in common with a woman making her own decision about abortion, a young person listening to music that I don't know, a mom or dad with a sick child without health care.

More in common with a peer without a job, a parent with Alzheimer's, a family living near a Koch-polluted river.

I'm supposed to be the GOP dream voter. Not a chance, ever. I don't know what happened to My Generation, but as for me, I'm here at DU for a reason. Peace, love and rock and roll still works.

And I'm voting for President Obama.
