All the Democrats’ Womyn Are Belong To Us

I didn’t watch any of the Democrats’ virtual Shark Week but I did catch clips of Michelle Obama from Monday night and AOC last night. My observations:

First, both of them have been taking professional coaching lessons in diction and presentation. This generally  implies grooming for additional public exposure. With Lady Mocha Michelle I can only hope that means she’s vying for Becoming the county’s next Oprah on Netflix rather than completing the transformation of America in The Second Coming of the Won (which will also be available on Netflix if and when somebody picks up the option).

“Empathy: that’s something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. The ability to walk in someone else’s shoes; [unless they are conservative] the recognition that someone else’s experience has value, too. Most of us practice this without a second thought. If we see someone suffering or s[ch]truggling, we don’t stand in judgment. We reach out because, ‘There, but[t] for the grace of God, go I.’” - Lady Mocha

While she could go either way, remember: empathy was Oprah’s super power. That’s how she won the hearts and minds of the white womyn of America and built her formidable empire worth billions. 

In AOC’s case there is no doubt where her ambitions lie. She wants to be the country’s first Hispanic dominatrix.

“In fidelity and gratitude to a mass people's movement working to establish 21st century social, economic, and human rights, including guaranteed health care, higher education, living wages, and labor rights for all people in the United States; a movement striving to recognize and repair the wounds of racial injustice, colonization, misogyny, and homophobia, and to propose and build reimagined systems of immigration and foreign policy that turn away from the violence and xenophobia of our past; a movement that realizes the unsustainable brutality of an economy that rewards explosive inequalities of wealth for the few at the expense of long-term stability for the many, and who organized an historic, grassroots campaign to reclaim our democracy.”

Kind of makes me yearn for the Bill Clinton years when the DNC was the party of soccer moms. They haven’t been represented by females anywhere near as wholesome since.

Heads up, speaking at the DNC tonight: Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Rodham Clinton!
