Man, research jobs in the old days must have been fun, what with the water fights and all…

Julie Brown – Girl Fight Tonight
There is a vibration in The Force as The New Republic puts a purely speculative essay up about how there is a populist movement that wants Sen. Elizabeth Warren to run against Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Goat Rodeo nomination.
Can we just stop this, please?
Near the end of the piece, the author notes that Sen. Warren signed a letter urging Clinton to run. So,this is just another weird attempt to create a controversy between two strong women where none exists. It damages and discredits not just both of those women, but all women. Would such a breathless article be written if the subjects were both men?
Because it’s not like women will be offended or anything, amiright?
On Saturday the saddest woman in North America, Anita Perry (wife of Theocrat-Secessionist nitwit Texas Gov. Rick Perry who does not believe in abortions even in cases of rape, incest or where childbirth threatens the life of the mother) voiced her support for a woman’s right to choose.
Today, Rick tells us that she misspoke:
“From time to time we’ll stick the wrong word in the wrong place, and you pounce upon it.”
Anita Perry was nowhere to be seen, as there must have been a kitchen someplace where she is hog-tied to the range.
…the American Taliban will tell you that women have a way of shutting that whole thing down:
(Reuters) – A conservative Saudi Arabian cleric has said women who drive risk damaging their ovaries and bearing children with clinical problems, countering activists who are trying to end the Islamic kingdom’s male-only driving rules.
“So I have this crazy idea but tell me what you honestly think,” the student wrote. “I want to start a sorority at Smith (Delta Gamma/DG), which would basically just be an exclusive group for straight girls, a little friend group.”
“We would have sorority mixers with Amherst men, weekly dinner dates, weekly photoshoots where we would dress up nice, baking nights. We would also get Sorority apparel (even Lily Pulitzer has the cutest DG stuff!).”
“I got this idea because personally as a straight girl at Smith, I feel marginalized and I feel like the minority, and I think this could be a really great way to socialize with people we identify more with at Smith, and to meet more guys.”
Every time I think that the kids have got it together, I am reminded that my mileage may vary.
