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! 😉
