~ Well behaved women rarely make history ~


“Well behaved women rarely make history.” --Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

I watched a PUMA member being interviewed this morning on MSNBC. I didn't know much about what a PUMA was (the wild cat, yes) only that they were going to vote for McCain. Which was a huge turn off to me. I would never vote for McCain! But the PUMA's have taken on a fight to the finish. And this is what is most inspiring. They believe so passionately in Senator Hillary Clinton being the DNC nominee for President, that they would sacrifice their vote to McCain. Two lady commentators came on the screen after the PUMA interview was over. I just glared at their smug pancake faces when they both stated "Hillary Clinton will need to "behave" during the DNC Convention." "BEHAVE!" Behave? Such as a child should behave? Behave? Like in the little woman should behave? What the heck are these two professional younger females doing by using the word BEHAVE on such an esteemed professional as Senator Hillary Clinton? That scene was so offensive that I couldn't shrug it off. So I unplugged from the computer for most of the day and just did one of my favorite old movies. Ms. Bette Davis in Jezebel. What a wonderful movie! Think of it? Bette Davis would have been completely broke and empty if she hadn't made a stand on her own behalf with the movie moguls. Same thing for Ms. Joan Crawford. When did we start producing professional media women who talk down to a senior woman of strength and wisdom? I rarely cuss, but I knew I would want to use an @#@!(*-*)^%**&@ if I were to throw out an email to MSNBC this morning, where Alex was hosting. I wanted to, but didn't. Instead, I ruminated off and on about how Senator Clinton really needs to be treated with much more respect for all of her great accomplishments. Pundits, strategists and/or hosts seem to forget, that she has added to their job security. So show a little more respect, please. Rather then the back handed remarks, conspiracy theories and pre-pointing the finger of blame for an Obama loss. Why are they still talking about her anyway? Job security? She isn't in the presidential race any longer. So, what is it that makes them continue to bring her up at all? The other candidates don't surface much from the democratic or republican party. Senator Hillary Clinton is important to me and she is important to millions of other people, but why is she so important to these media mostly mongrels? What do they want from her, other than her to BEHAVE? Maybe groups like PUMA have made a bigger mark in the political writings of history to come, then I realized. Maybe the PUMA's are on to something. Everyone seems familiar with them by now. They've seemed to have broken through the media sound barrier, all the way into MSM. The PUMA's are a group to reckon with. And they have people from all walks of life joining them along this historical journey. We also have a another group movement called the Republicans (real conservatives) for Obama! Has there ever been a time, in our recent history, that thousands upon thousands of voters have criss crossed over to the other side for one election year, as an organized group? I can't find any data at this time, to confirm any groups of Democrats or Republicans doing this, anywhere. We Independents have always been on the fringe, the nonconformists, the whole package voter. Now we seem to have some competition with a whole lot of nonconformity this year. Its a most amazing time and I can't wait to see what each week brings forth. Hillary must not BEHAVE, ever! She can't be suppressed and deprived of her time in the spot light. If she wants to air a few proactive edgy opinions when she speaks, let her have at it. Go Hillary - Go all the way to the edge!
