I don’t expect this to become a long list. I’ll open it with this:

sampat pal devi and members of the pink sari or gulabi gang.


A bit of lighter fare:

This is not a new story, but since I recently adopted a rescued dog – a sweet girl dog

it’s been buzzing through my head

No “girly” dog for the Obamas

It as last month in the interview with Baba Wawa, where the father of 2 girls let the world know what he thinks of them, so called buying THEM a pet, and macho airs

Bawbwa: “It’s short for Cha Cha Cha.”

O: “What is a Havanese?”

B: “It’s like a little terrier and they’re non-allergenic and they’re the sweetest dogs..”

O: [Face suddenly changes.] “It’s like a little yappy dog?”

Michelle: “Don’t criticize.”

O: “It, like, sits in your lap and things?”

M: “It’s a cute dog.”

O: “It sounds kinda like a girly dog.”

M: “We’re girls. We have a houseful of girls.”

O [with hand gestures]: “We’re going to have a big rambunctious dog, of some sort.”

This would be the freudian side of Obama was never sexist”

And the reason I remembered it today was that a big menacing bulldog was coming in the street as I was walking my “girlie dog”. The Bulldog had an army camouflage jacket and was about 3 times the size of my yorkie-poo. My dog approached the macho guy sniffing and tail wagging upon which, the macho dog ran away as fast and as far as his leash allowed him. I bet if that dog could vote, he’d vote “present” too! 😉

Looks like Obama & gang got some lumps of coal from Santa as they were trying to hide their corruption interviews behind the Christmas tree. And how was your Christmas?

AP reports

An attorney for Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) has asked the legislative panel considering impeachment of the governor to subpoena more than a dozen witnesses, including President-elect Barack Obama‘s incoming chief of staff.

Looks like Jarett and JJJ are on the wanted list as well.

No wonder Obama team lawyered up as Politico let out …Christmas day.

But last Thursday, President-elect Barack Obama was interviewed for two hours by two FBI agents and two federal prosecutors investigating charges that Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich had tried to sell off the Senate seat Obama vacated after winning the presidency.

Obama was not under oath, but he was represented in the FBI interview — as well as throughout the internal review — by Bob Bauer, the shrewdly pugnacious Washington super lawyer who represented Obama’s campaign. Each of the four Obama associates referenced in the internal report also retained attorneys, although only Emanuel and Jarrett sat for interviews with U.S. attorneys and FBI agents

Now that’s hope and change that was in the making for years

What I don’t get is: Obama said they were all clean?
