I Had My Hair Done And Then...





Michell Grisham, the first district US Democratic congresswoman from New Mexico, who has been hiding under her desk in her office all through the Paris massacres, the San Bernardino massacres, and the economic devastation her district has been undergoing throughout her term in office, emerged today to boldly announce she has no position on gun control or on anything.

Like all New Mexico Democrats she takes the cynically calculated, cowardly position that it's better to pass on the opportunity she's been handed to mold public opinion and lead her country in a better direction, and instead stand silently with her finger in the air waiting to see which way the wind's blowing, so as not to jeopardize her fancy title, her perks and privileges and fat paycheck, and the opportunity to improve her own bottom line, which, last I checked had doubled in the short time she'd been in office.

Meanwhile, one other New Mexico Democrat has said something about the continual outpouring of racist demagoguery from the Republican presidential candidates that's been ongoing for months now and has the public whipped into a hateful frenzy. After waiting for other Democrats, and the news media and the entire Republican national leadership to denounce Donald Trump's latest vile outburst, and checking his ass one more time to make sure it was fully covered, he quietly said we hadn't ought to say things like that. From Michelle Grisham, nothing yet, but call me and tell me what you think.

  1. I really don't know why, I just can't seem to get to where I trust Ms. Lujan-Grisham. Maybe it is that she appears as too, too wishy washy.

    Maybe a Republican, maybe Democrat, maybe a conservative, maybe a liberal, maybe an Hispanic New Mexican (Lujan), maybe an Anglo (Grisham), maybe neither (Lujan-Grisham).

    Talk about fence straddling, but she must be used to it, she has been doing it long enough. My advice to her is to stay put where she is and it is easier to be a fence straddler, or better yet a tightrope walker, in Washington in the House of Representatives than in any other political position or political body.

    Her brand of politics seems to me to be closer affiliated with snake oil sales than with a true need to assist new Mexicans of any color or stripe.

  2. I'm sorry to say I taught 12th grade government classes for 25 years before volunteering for teaching 7th grade American History, 8th grade geography, and boys basketball. One of my former high school students is now a Republican legislator and chairman of the House Tax committee. Now a Tea Party ideologue he has perfected the art of finger raising to test the wind in our rural legislative district. Ugh! Leadership? What a joke.

    1. Thanks for the comment, T, and that interesting story. I guess you never know. Minnesota though, overall, is an oasis of sanity in a sea of idiocy, and I suppose you've had some influence on that happening.
