…but male Guardian columnist thinks that’s too harsh! Bemoaning Oscar Pistorius’s fate, while not mentioning Reeva Steenkamp even once.
Michael C. Hall Delivers Physically Powerful, Tragically Dark Hedwig, by Taylor Marsh
[…] On Sunday, the house was packed, noisy and the anticipation could be felt everywhere inside the Belasco Theater. If people had seen the publicity shots released just one week earlier they might have been prepared for seeing Michael C. Hall enter from the rafters. However, nothing could prepare you for the physical prowess his persona presented on stage.
Michael C. Hall gives new meaning to pulling off a little black dress.
Hall as Hedwig is a physical goddess, thigh muscles rippling as she struts across the stage one minute, then the next minute lowers to a full knee bend, crouching and jumping, climbing the side of the stage a second later. All done while belting out rock lyrics and pleading for acceptance in angry defiance for being who she is and expecting to be loved for it, too, just that like any other human being. […]
Midterm Election Jitters, Conservatism, and Clinton’s Advantage, by Taylor Marsh
That sets up 2016 for a candidate who represents the best of both or maybe it’s the Goldilocks theory. Progressives are too weak, Republicans are too reactionary, and Hillary Clinton is just right.
A candidate who’s populist at heart in a globalized economy that requires battling the bullies like only a friend can, while carrying a big stick in a world where uncertainty has been unleashed by an Arab spring gone frigidly cold.
Brianna Wu, Feminist Game Critics, Face Death Threats in Gamergate [Content Warning] by Taylor Marsh
The lumbering, graceful land of America and the people who run it reside in a bubble that long ago burst and they still don’t know it. While Congress bickers and fixates on hyper partisan squabbles, the people who elect these idiots aren’t any better. Content to live and watch football in a country that is prepared for a 20th century attack, but wholly unprepared for bad actors watching how our health care system fumbled one single patient who landed in our country with Ebola.
American women, the country needs to hear from you! Do you know how powerful your one voice can be? How powerful your one vote can be? - Barbra Streisand
An excerpt of my latest on Huffington Post.
The season of progressive discontent over Hillary’s coming 2016 candidacy is upon us.
An article in The Hill by Alexandra Jaffe kicked it off. Exposing”secret emails” from progressives on an email list in which I was the only one quoted who stood up for Hillary. Considering I’m known as a “die hard Clintonite,” compliments of profiles in the Washington Post and the New Republic, it shouldn’t shock anyone that a liberal feminist would support a qualified woman for president.
The goal of anti-Hillary progressives is to find a challenger to Clinton. Their target is Senator Elizabeth Warren, with Ready for Warren created as the vehicle to convince Warren to run. It’s not going to happen, with Warren sending a powerful message in August.
Hillary Clinton unscripted and everyone in Washington coming to grips with the Clintons again.
Who’s popping the popcorn?
