Ed Rendell, John Edwards, Barack Obama & Lilly Ledbetter

Tue, January 26, 2010


No, I don’t have a bad joke that includes them walking into a bar or being on a life raft.  But I do have a few random political thoughts about each of them today.  Hey, I can share here just as well as on Twitter, right?

I’m really liking Ed Rendell these days!

As I’ve mentioned before, John Edwards is dead to me.  Please stop with the “news” about his sordid personal life.

President Obama wants to freeze spending.  Didn’t he criticize John McCain at some point for same idea?

On a better note, Lilly Ledbetter isn’t giving up the fight for fair pay.  In a conference call today with Ledbetter,  sponsored by the National Women’s Law Center, Senator Chris Dodd and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro announced that Dodd will be calling on the Senate to hold hearings on the Paycheck Fairness Act within the coming weeks.  The Ledbetter Act signed by President Obama didn’t guarantee any of us fair pay — it only gave us the right to sue if we discover we’re not being paid fairly.  Here’s hoping that we can soon talk about a Paycheck Fairness Law!

    I don’t understand the unwillingness to make the Republicans filibuster. HCR is still popular. If they want to die on this hill, make ‘em.

    And agreed – I don’t wanna touch the John Edwards thing.

    Um, I mean…

    Still does not mean anything when the “Boys Club” can bend the rules to their liking when and if it does become Law. They can always find a way to do what they want and then if we cry we can’t hack it in a MAN’S world.

    I don’t say this loudly around Pittsburgh but I am a Rendell fan. Have been for years. He had me long before referring to the rescue in Haiti and an “effing miracle.”
