    •  about a notebook controversy? (4.00)
      you're joking?  about a notebook controversy when we were sophomores in high school? LOL!

      Our class agent for our high school alumnae association took none to well my response to their gloating over Dina's coverage in the news.  They republished an LA times article on Dina in our last magazine and then they completely bi-passed news on a huge award I was honored in my industry to mention that my spouse had a cameo in F911.

      I just shake my head when I do read about Dina, because it's usually this "up by the bootstraps" immigrant story that is total BS.  We went to school with Bill Gate's wife and Roger Staubach's daugthers. Roughing it was not in our vocabulary.  I remember when Dina was getting her paperwork in order for sorority rush at UT, she had these 8.5x11 glossy photographs made and letters of recommendation from the Egyptian ambassador for her packet.  I didn't rush in Texas, so I just had to fill out a tear sheet application and end of story at my school.

      •  So how did she get hired? (none)
        This story says she got hired by Armey straight out of college.

        She's attractive, but there are plenty of attractive women looking for the same positions.

        •  it's called being in the right place (none)
          at the right time and knowing the right people.

          We went to an excellent high school and Dina pledged the right sorority at UT.  She got the right internships in Austin and so logically she was pretty well set going to DC.  We both arrived in DC in 1995, right after the republican revolution and Dick Armey was the leading congressional republican at the time and a Texan.  I'm sure she started out answering phones and whatnot, but I think right now her ethnicity and her unswearving loyalty to the Bushies is what keeps her as a hot commodity.  She gushes in our high school magazine about how fabulous Laura and George are and what an honor it is to work for them (gag). But they've been trotting her around in all of the arab publications and she's made trips to the middle east on behalf of the WH.

          •  Her and Karen Hughes (none)
            So, the White House thinks it is a smart strategy to send Karen Huges and Dina Delay to Arab countries to enlighten them on what all they could be if they were just more like America. It's just one more scary, stupid thing in a long line of stupid, scary things coming out of the Bush administration.
      •  Yes, joking. (none)
