…and it’s not even my insurance bullsh*ttery. A friend of the family is stuck playing quick-relocation (parental health issue) from Louisiana to West Virginia, and trying to help her at one remove has been a household stress generator for the last couple of days. She’s great, it’s everybody else that’s being the problem, starting with the insurers and going on from there.
I think that everything is situated at the moment and we can get on with our Spring Break plans, but it was a bit complicated for a bit, there. Not to mention, disrupting my schedule and generally sunny attitude for a while. Hopefully, I failed to actually bite any heads off.
“DNC chief defends party’s diversity.” What an entertaining title, particularly since it hints at the possibility that a Democratic representative had to spend some quality squirming time trying to explain why Tuesday’s debate stage was pretty heavy in the Dude contingent and downright blanketed with Old and White.

Oh, my, yes. This is going to be what everybody takes from this interview: “[Debbie Wasserman Schultz] said the Democratic presidential field is not representative of the overall diversity of the party.” But what you should take from this interview is that Jorge Ramos – the guy from Fusion who interviewed Schultz – started off by asking a pointed question about Hillary Clinton’s emails, then followed up by suggesting that the Democrats are terrified of Donald Trump. There wasn’t a friendly question in that interview (not hostile, either, but definitely not friendly) I’ll say this for Hispanic activists: even the ones who aren’t on my side seem to have figured out that going down the same road that African-American activists did with regard to Democrats will do nothing for Hispanics in the long run.

PS: Seriously, the last question was worth the price of admission: (I paraphrase) “Hey, Debbie, should we have more than six debates?” …Three, maybe four seconds of dead air before the spinning started. Not enough for a dumpster fire picture, but you’d think that the head of the DNC would be prepared for that comment.
After three months of Democratic nonsense, Democratic hackery, Democratic filibustering, Democratic delay, Democratic posturing, and general Democratic disregard for the underlying issue of human trafficking… the Senate bill finally passes. The final vote? As of 4:30 PM:
