    • Lazy Caturday Reads December 4, 2021
      Good Afternoon!! I’m getting a late start today. The news this week has been so awful; I feel really exhausted and drained of energy. Using the computer has gotten more difficult for me as I’ve gotten older. I can’t believe I just turned 74. Reading on the computer really bothers my eyes now; fortunately I […]

    • Frank Friday Reads December 3, 2021
      Happy Friday Sky Dancers! I’m going to make this entire weekend TV-free. It’s easy for me because all forms of sportsball bore me and I certainly don’t need to see the endless talking heads as it’s been a depressing enough week already. Most movies and tv shows bore me too so my plan is to […]

    • Thursday Reads: Back To the 1950s (Which Were Not ‘Happy Days’ for Women) December 2, 2021
      Good Morning!! There are plenty of interesting news stories out there today, but all I can think about is that the right wing Supreme Court is poised to reverse Roe v. Wade and attempt to return American women to the second class status we inhabited when I was a girl in the 1950s and early […]

    • Wednesday Reads: WTFF?! December 1, 2021
      What the fuckity fuck? That is all I’m gonna say about that. Cartoons are from the Cagle website: I’ve been dealing with a cold since Thanksgiving…so just adding some links below: This thread is tough to read: That’s it for now…one more thing: This is an open thread.

    • Tuesday Reads: Omicron, Trump, and Cuomo November 30, 2021
      Good Afternoon!! Once again, there isn’t a lot of good news out there to talk about. The media is still “freaking out” about the Covid omicron variant, and we still don’t actually know much about it. Trump and his goons are still threatening U.S. democracy, and the DOJ appears to be doing nothing to stop […]

    • Manic Monday Reads: Double Standard Edition November 29, 2021
      Good Day Sky Dancers! The one thing that’s become more apparent to me than anything else is the double standard in the media and elsewhere with what they tolerate from white men who are screaming like scalded hogs at the moment and essentially trying to install an autocratic government to retain their privilege and control […]

    • Lazy Caturday Reads November 27, 2021
      Good Afternoon!! I wanted to try to find some good news to post today, but there just isn’t much of it out there. I guess it’s sort good news that a Republican associated with Mitch McConnell has criticized Rep.Loren Boebert for her grotesque attack on Rep. Ilian Omar. Raw Story: ‘Absolute garbage rhetoric’: Mitch McConnell […]

    • Virulant Friday Reads: Get Ready for the Next Wave November 26, 2021
      Happy Avoiding Black Friday Day! I spent Thanksgiving with my neighbors, which is so lovely on many levels.  It really felt like the first typical holiday for me in a few years. The last one was the Mardi Gras, where I woke up with something that made me highly ill for weeks. I was really […]

    • Thanksgiving Reads November 25, 2021
      Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope you all have a very pleasant day with family and friends or alone if that’s what you prefer. I have spent many Thanksgiving Days by myself and have been grateful to be able to do so. I usually get really stressed out over “the holidays,” and I guess that’s beginning for […]

Happy Birthday Madame Secretary

OHM nom nom nom!

Hillary’s service as Secretary of State earns her a happy birthday wish, especially since she’s going to be busting her hump oversees for the next two weeks.

Hillary has doubtless inspired all of us over the years in some way. I have liked her since I was a child, albeit sometimes in secret. Defending her to people my age is sometimes a chore (“She tried to ban Grand Theft Auto”… “Um, NO, she tried to ban the PORN in Grand Theft Auto. There is a DIFFERENCE!”) and I have a reputation to protect, but I am willing to go to bat for her. That is the level of my admiration.

For someone who has never had much of an example of a strong woman to look up to, having Hillary as First Lady, then a Senator and then Secretary of State– not to mention her tenacity in 2008 when she was running for President–has been very educational and important.

In the past two years especially, we have had a real example of class and service in our Secretary of State. Not only is she a great gal, she’s a great LOOKING gal. I hope my trashy chain smoking a$$ looks half as good at sixty three.

Happy Birthday Madame Secretary,  and many more!

Note: This is the thread where the shrieking band of Hillary holdouts shares experiences with and regarding the Secretary of State.

  1. What a beautiful tribute, LI. She sure is something, isn’t she? I don’t know that I could have handled all that came at her during that primary with such grace. We are indeed lucky to have her as a role model of how a real woman responds to adversity.

    Happy Birthday, Madam Secretary. May your day be as glorious as you.

  2. “Headbands solve so many problems.” LOL
    How can you not love this woman? How many working women haven’t relied upon them for bad hair days. Slip one on and you’re out the door. Sweet and sassy. Thanks for the Tyra clip.

    Happy Birthday Madam Secretary!

  3. You rocked on John’s show, girl!

  4. I also love headbands. They are especially useful for controlling my hair, which is wild and curly. They should rename her Madame Awesome.
    Oh, and thanks Uppity! 😀
