Sep 2018

Kicking ass and taking names!

She is currently my top candidate for our presidential nominee in 2020. She is pushing all my buttons:

1. FEMALE
2. MIXED RACIAL BACKGROUND (mother is from India, father is from Jamaica)
3. SMART AS HELL
4. ASS-KICKER EXTRAORDINAIRE
5. YOUNG-ISH (she is only 53)
6. SERVED AS A DISTRICT ATTORNEY AND ATTORNEY GENERAL IN CALIFORNIA
7. HAS A REPUTATION FOR PROSECUTING HATE CRIMES AND CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS

Oh my yes. Zoonart Sep 2018 #1

Oh snap !! Haggis for Breakfast Sep 2018 #71
And it's rich watching someone on a discussion board critique the cross-examination skills EffieBlack Sep 2018 #75
Everyone is entitled to an opinion. And...she didn't get an answer, did she? Honeycombe8 Sep 2018 #87
Oh, believe me, America saw him answer her question. Haggis for Breakfast Sep 2018 #96
Yes. It's on the internet, too. The tricky answer that she didn't catch. Honeycombe8 Sep 2018 #97
YOU are missing the POINT Haggis for Breakfast Sep 2018 #101

I'm not championing any cause. I merely stated that I found someone's voice irritating. Honeycombe8 Sep 2018 #98
You'd best get used to hearing that voice BannonsLiver Sep 2018 #100
Her voice is irritating to me. Wow...I didn't know you cared that much about my opinions. Honeycombe8 Sep 2018 #84
You don't seem to know (or care) that you are contributing to dog-whistle sexism flibbitygiblets Sep 2018 #92
Thank you EffieBlack Sep 2018 #94
It doesn't help to treat certain people gingerly, like they can't handle the truth. Honeycombe8 Sep 2018 #99
Thank you, flibbitygiblets! Perfect response. fleur-de-lisa Sep 2018 #90
