  •  Nothing pissed them off more... (9+ / 0-)

    than someone being totally comfortable with who they are when "the deciders" think otherwise.  I'm also in political life, and as a fat woman, I'm certainly not supposed to be.  They've been hammering away at that one for a while, but it's not getting any traction.  So now, they've switched to "she's angry".  Whoopee!  You know, I think there's a lot of things to be angry about these days.  Like my mom shouldn't have lost her house because of her medical bills.  Like my friends who can't find work because of the economy, and also because there are still people out there who think it's OK to discriminate against someone because they're gay.  But I'm not just angry to be angry.  I want to change things for the better.  And "the deciders"?  They just hate that.  I'm not going away.  I'm not going to make it easy for them.  

    Keep on keepin' on, my friend.  Great work here.  Good luck in your race.  May you be blessed with many volunteers and a few wealthy benefactors.
