Truth and Consequences

Anna Belle has a post up about negativity over at Peacocks & Lillies which really resonated with me.

After eight years of Bush&Co., a horrible primary season filled with backstabbing, misogyny, DNC machinations and false claims of Clinton racism, capped off with a sham vote at the convention, I crave some good news.

But, it's Day 14 and there is no word from the Obama camp concerning any repercussions to precious speechwriter Jon Favreau. And if it hasn't happened by now, it won't happen at all.

Obama's cabinet appears to be unbalanced with many more men than women and he has now chosen a sexist preacher for his Inauguration.

The economy is in the tank due to the "look the other way" or the "do for me" attitude of the Congress, protecting their turf and lining their pockets. The former head of the NASDAQ has fleeced all kinds of charities and and private citizens. My Christmas has never been extravagant, but this year I've had to cut back even more.

Caroline Kennedy is staking her claim to Hillary's senate seat. I don't even know what issues she supports. She's campaigning upstate and word on the street is that if Gov. Paterson doesn't give her the seat, Ted Kennedy will instruct his friends in high places to pull their support and their campaign contributions to Gov. Paterson's re-election. Rock and a hard place. If Gov. Paterson doesn't hand it over to Kennedy, he will be MY person of the year and a very bright spot on an otherwise dismal horizon.

And to cap it off, the MSM is blaming the critics of Caroline Kennedy on Hillary. Listen up, dudes. I supported Hillary Clinton for president, believe she was best suited to the office and saw her robbed of the election. However, that has nothing whatsoever to do with my views on the NY Senate seat. I'm a New Yorker, a former Democrat who has worked in government, but am now unaffiliated with any party. I want my politicians to be experienced and I want to know where they stand. I am sick and tired of being stuck with leaders who have to surround themselves with other people to show them how it's done because they have little to no background in governing.

Bah humbug.

Favreau will continue to work for Obama as Chief Speechwriter and has a big showcase in waPo.
