Last night's episode featured Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D) New York and a variety of Democratic Party "liberals" interviewed in the lobby of the convention on the subject of "toleration." Both of these are worth watching.
The adorable senator was elected to fill HC's seat a few years back. She stands for re-election in a couple of years. She has the Valley Girl voice, blond good looks that ought to place her in the GOP, and the expectation that men will accept any sort of foolishness if she giggles at them. My very grown up wife finds her deeply offensive. I have no problem with Kirsten. She is still a little bit too much the PTA president and not enough Olympia Snow, but she is not my senator. Personally, I would rather vote for Michelle Dockery for the senate. She's not an American? Ah, shucks, this is a technicality.
Then there are the "liberal" faithful on the subject of inclusiveness. pl
On the 4th, Colbert (the second whitest man in North America) interviewed Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D) New York. She represents the "fightin' 9th" or maybe the "fightin' 11th." Born in the US she is a product of US/NY Schools even though her parents are from Jamaica. In the course of their talk it became clear that she thinks that slavery still was legal in Brooklyn, NY in 1898 and that the people responsible for this were "the Dutch." Seriously. Colbert, a South Carolinian, found this situation difficult to deal with. pl
