No False Modesty Here

We welcome some new visitors and citers to recent posts. Wick Allison, in D Magazine's FrontBurner picked up on "Dallas Is Drowning -- Help!!" in this note:
If a perennial loser named Gene Kelly beats out Barbara Radnofsky for the chance to run against Kay Bailey Hutchison, all down-ticket Democratic candidates will suffer in November, according to this analysis. The fact that the argument is made by someone who calls herself the "Bride of Acheron" only adds to its piquancy. [Insert joke about Democratic wing-nuts here.]
I am reminded of a bit in a very old satire (whose author I don't recall) about the second Constitutional Convention, when all the far right-wingers gathered to work their will, and H.L. Hunt made a pass at Ayn Rand, "who blushingly rabbit-punched him to the floor." (Such tales of course have their modern analogues.) Thanks for helping spread the word, Wick.

Meanwhile, two distaffers previously unknown to me have cited that Confirm Delete box I got from the People's Republic. I'll have to steal more there. Thanks and welcome to the sidebar to Zen Zoo (a "liberal lesbian living in NE Ohio") and to Karen Page of Peripetia, both of whom spotted the credit to me by the already-permalinked Blue Gal. Liberté, Égalité, Sororité.

Yeah, you should steal more from there. And keep blogging. Us gals need each other big time. Boys at my blog are out edible pantying each other left right and center. Boys. Hmm.
