State of the Union and Men Who Hate Women
Last evening I attended a "Watch Party" at Democratic Party HQ. Barb, our leader, called and to tell me how glad she was to see my name on the list because she needs a Data Queen and I just laughed a lot and said, "I'm your gal!" Soooooo it looks like I'm on board for the forthcoming elections as well as a rank and file member of Organizing for America -- Obama's PAC for the future. Even funnier, my team leader from the campaign called after I got off the phone with Barb to tell me about the party and I told him that Barb beat him to it AND that I had already signed up after I'd gotten an invite from Obama in my email.
It was a fun get together and Barb told us all about the inauguration discovering that that she would be attending THE ball instead of one the lesser ones and thanked us for delivering our county. She also showed us the program and photos. Good stuff!!! Obama is a class act.
Here's something that came in my email re: the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) which passed the Senate 78-22. Here are the 22 Senators who voted against it:
Senators who voted against the bill included Republicans John Barrasso (Wyo.), Roy Blunt (Mo.), John Boozman (Ark.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), John Cornyn (Texas), Ted Cruz (Texas), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Orrin Hatch (Utah), James Inhofe (Okla.), Mike Johanns (Neb.), Ron Johnson (Wisc.), Mike Lee (Utah), Mitch McConnell (Ky.), Rand Paul (Ky.), Jim Risch (Idaho), Pat Roberts (Kansas), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), John Thune (S.D.) and Tim Scott (S.C.).
I urge all of you to remember these names and would hope that y'all might drop a nastygram if your senator is listed. I might add that Sen. Marco Rubio is being talked about as a potential 2016 presidential candidate so please keep that in mind.
I'm slowly but surely getting organized here so watch this space!!!!
