As an old white woman, I remember

how it felt watching the response of African American people watching Obama's ascension.

Feel the same way now.

Uplifted, alive, hopeful, optimistic, in awe. Respect!

Really great listening to African American people, women, enjoying, dwelling in this moment. Joy Reid. Maxine Waters. Cory Booker.

Loving this. Balm for my soul.

Walp. 4 hour tour of crazytown.

Sadly, tonight I confirmed my friend of 40 years is a trumper. Simply confirmed suspicions.

She very genuinely implored of me that it not affect our friendship. My heart tells me to comply. She is more apolitical, I would say, but has drunk the kool-aid.

It got a little ugly due to a 4th person present. My husband was there and of course supported my arguments.

What to do, what to do.

I hate this.

Tiny momentum shift today

with McGahn ruling, Jean Carroll rape lawsuit proceeding, even NDAs going down? (WAPO article). And of course, MichelleO in the house!

Tiny, but measurable.

Over and out.

Drumpf is the devil.

Look what he says about Biden's religious life. About grab women by the pussies? About John Lewis. If people can't see that, well, I have no words.

Over think Jonathan Swan interview q with me

comparing stats for death as a proportion of cases v. population.

Deaths as a proportion of cases would be higher than as a proportion of population.

What is the salient point being made here in mocking drumpf?
