“Now you know how I felt four years ago.”

I’ve heard this from several friends already.

Actually, no I don’t know how you felt four years ago.

Four years ago, when “my guy” won, I was able to “celebrate” with exactly one friend and two family members.  I had a professor cancel a seminar that only met one day a week because she was too upset to teach and I had a close friend who lived on my hall tell me that she couldn’t handle looking at me.

Fours years ago, when “my guy” won, the media, my friends, and my family hated him with such a passion and depth that I honestly thought it bordered on unpatriotic.

Today, I feel alone.

I don’t have the support of the media and I don’t have the support of all my friends and family (although certainly some).  I attended a meeting that concluded with “everything’s so much brighter today,” etc.  I am in an extreme minority geographically and demographically simply because I’m a 25-year old Republican woman living in NYC.

I also don’t abhor the man elected, have faith that our nation is not committed to a complete leftwing agenda, and, unlike many of my Facebook friends, was always proud to be an American.

So, no, I don’t know how you felt four years ago.

Barbara truly is a zen master

One of many reasons to be BFF with Barbara is the fact that she always knows the right thing to say.

Today, a co-worker told me that after he found out I was a Republican, he thought I was significantly less attractive.

Here’s my convo with Barbara discussing the situation… I particularly like the way that she suggests my face is already a little bit mangled ;-)

me: i think that counts as an anti-republican hate crime
Barbara: whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat????
you should have been like
does being republican make my boobs less awesome?
or my face more mangled?
no, right? then wtf is your problem, dude?
me: thank you!

Unelectable

Hmmm… not a must-watch, but decent.

Oh, McClellan, who knew you could be a bigger loser out of office than you were in it?

By far, Goldberg’s take is the most entertaining (and he didn’t even read the book):

It’s been rumored that McClellan was hired by the Bush White House to appeal to a specific sub-constituency: pasty middle-aged men with a thumbless grasp of the English language. The veracity of this rumor has long been undermined by the assumption that Bush had locked down this constituency all on his own.

And, Peggy’s take is the most mature:

When I finished the book I came out not admiring Mr. McClellan or liking him but, in terms of the larger arguments, believing him. One hopes more people who work or worked within the Bush White House will address the book’s themes and interpretations. What he says may be inconvenient, and it may be painful, but that’s not what matters. What matters is if it’s true. Let the debate on the issues commence.

On your reading list…

This week you should have read:

Also, I started the New Yorker‘s piece on Conservatism about five times, but it just seemed painfully boring and I couldn’t care less. So don’t ask me about it.
