I'm not a Democrat. In a piece of performance art, I registered as a Republican several years ago. That's right, people, you heard it, I'm a card-carrying Performance Artist Republican. And I say with pride that I haven't voted for a Democrat in years, even before I joined the reptiles. But something thrilling happened to momentarily lessen my cynicism, and that is that a ballsy woman ran a real honest-to-gosh campaign for president of the United States. I cried a little the day I told Hedgehog about her campaign and about how there might be a woman in the White House. And then what happened? Something really bizarre. Although she was quite viable, although many (nay half) of the votes went to her, the media ran a weird anti-campaign, maintaining vociferously from early on that she had not a snowball's chance in Hades of winning this preliminary. Now if you were watching closely, you realized this was patently untrue. So untrue, in fact, that I'm still reeling from the untruth. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I'd have a field day.
I can't say anymore right now on this painful subject, but I'll leave you with a link to an op-ed piece that for me says it all brilliantly: "Political Viagra"
