Just Another Girl On The IRT

Freestyle musings from a pseudo-intellectual hellcat in high heels with Huxtable aspirations in a ghetto fab world. Proudly sponsored by bouts of bitchy mood swings, one too many swigs of Turning Leaf, the letters F & U and the madness that is the Rotten Apple.

Decrying sheeple of the blah-blah sisterhood

"I've been married to my wife for 10 years. But if she came up here, you wouldn't laugh." - Chris Rock
If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and cry again. Or claim to have found your voice after 35 years of public service only to leave the heavy lifting to your attack dog of a husband who also happens to be the 42nd President of the United States. Make your running platform a nod to experience and competence when you're clearly lacking in both areas. Anyone who claims politics isn't one helluva tragicomedy clearly hasn't been paying attention to the Democratic race for the Oval Office.

I am woman, hear me boreThis whole process felt like déjà vu to me, as if I'd seen the trailer for this long before. The gratingly annoying overachiever who felt as if her coronation was inevitable only to see the popular jock riding a surging momentum wave into what was thought to be an insurmountable lead. And alas, I had. Slate has put forward the most hilarious and comprehensive screenplay of where the parallels are coming from. Yes ladies and gentlemen, Hillary Rodham Clinton is Tracy Flick. If you haven't seen Election, do yourselves a huge favor and make it a Blockbuster night immediately. Or better yet, check out the ingenious mashup below.
