I have HAD it. Sonia Sotomayor is constrained by the unjust rules, sitting alone and representing herself against a phalanx of white male bullies, just for the right to be a Girl and get into position to finally help have that be a good thing instead of an institutionalized handicap. And at the same moment, Rush Limbaugh is on the radio trying to denigrate President Obama (again) but instead this time, insulting every female on the planet.
What is WRONG with these guys?? I mean, I know Limbaugh’s literally deaf but what excuse do the rest of them have?
He ranted for half an hour at the top of his show today as Young Son and I listened, wondering if he saw the feel-good power of story nationally televised last night, that we had watched and loved. (Even the Yankees and the National League opponents!)
On the upside, here’s a truly heart-warming story for everyone about last night’s All-Star Game. Which was a big American League victory, credited to Papelbon btw, whoo-hoo! Pedroida got to stay home with the baby-and-mom-to-be . . .
All the Sox were super imo and the President too, even if he DID have another team’s jacket on.
He shook hands with the players in the locker room before the game, which we don’t recall seeing before, and here’s what he was doing in the hours leading up to that first pitch: honoring undisputed star athletes Serena Williams (a girl!) and traveling with Willie Mays (a man of color!)
The southpaw president had practiced his delivery in the White House Rose Garden and in Busch Stadium for a warm-up session with St. Louis Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols. Mr. Obama was hoping for a better pitch than his 2005 attempt at the Angels-White Sox game, but his pitch was short of the plate.
Still, the president did a fist pump after the throw and later told Mr. Buck that baseball is “such a reminder about what’s great about this country. You can’t beat it.”
The reason I single out JayRayBay is that he has a sister. Who throws like a girl. As a profession and all the way to the Olympics, baby.
(Take that, Limbaugh the Hutt and all you impotent bullies in the Senate too, trying to prove your manhood by ganging up on a girl on the cusp of a permanent berth in your game’s Hall of Fame, while you’re reduced to throwing rocks at her as if you’re her judge and jury, Taliban fashion. . .)
