Kim McMillan Made Me Cry

As soon as I finish this, I’m going to post a couple of YouTube videos that were the result of some questions I sent Gubernatorial candidate Kim McMillan.  But, I kind of have to just say something first.

Kim McMillan made me cry.

I know I tease about the legislators that put forth the “Protecting you from lying bitchez” legislation, and I think we all remember how things went at Blogger Day on the Hill.  But I don’t think I realized how my hackles were just kind of constantly in a position of “up” when it comes to politicians and Tennessee women until I heard a candidate talking about women, not like we’re a special interest group, but like we’re a bunch of citizens with diverse concerns and unique problems that need to be addressed.

I don’t know if McMillan can win or if she should win or what.

I do know that the bar has been set for how Democratic candidates in this state can and should be talking to women and about this issues that concern us.

I’ve now seen it done, so I know it can be done, yes, right here in Tennessee, and I’m kind of relieved and excited by that.

Yes, No, I Don’t Know

Yes, I saw that.

No, I don’t know anything more than that.

I don’t know what will happen to my brief but glorious run at Pith. I’d like to believe that the world is always in need of potty-mouthed, nerdy gals, but you never know.

Edited to add: I don’t know how to say this tactfully, so I’ll just say it. I’m having a grand time at Pith, but if they don’t need me any more, I bring that kind of stuff back here and we all carry on and laugh and reminisce about the time some paper thought it would be cool to put this shit on their website. I must be the person who is even tangentially tied to this who is least affected.

But there are a lot of really cool people on both sides, folks I like a lot, who are going to be really affected by the shake-out from this, should it come to pass.

And those are the folks my thoughts are with.
