    not nearly as INSANE as Todd but very into the whole 'ladylike' thing too.

    this local pol tried to hold a JOBS workshop for women that consisted of teaching 'ladies' how to dress for the workplace (pearls and a modest neckline please), how to sit and stand properly while wearing a skirt AND how to walk up and down stairs while balancing a book on your head (no kidding)

    this local Pol was sooooooooo ridiculed in the local blogs and on local TV and got so many angry calls from lady constituents that he canceled his workshop...  I do not live in MO though so I don't know how that whole ladylike thing plays with the women of that state.

          Talk about a small world, I grew up in Brooklyn.  I took a look at Golden's district map and it includes my old home turf.

          I now live in a red area of Oregon and my husband and I joke how my childhood neighborhood can be more conservative.  Last time we were there we saw some odd graffiti having to do with the special election to replace Weiner.  This is another example.
