She has always suffered from an inflated sense of her own greatness. She still can’t grasp that she was selected because she was a woman and the McCain team thought that would shake thimgs up. Then they did a piss poor job of vetting her, i.e. they didn’t listen to her talk for more than three minutes.

I don’t think you and I are disagreeing, just coming from different sides of the issue. I totally hear you on the appreciation front, and I guess my anecdotes didn’t clarify as much as I had hoped. Read more

I kind of get her frustration, though.

This is why mainly stick to Dirt Bag or jump to the comments. This site strikes me as a "look a gift horse in the mouth" kind of thing. The world isnt going to change overnight but anything remotely moving in that direction gets some snarky response for not moving fast enough. They're the downer friend who wants talk Read more

A lot of kids from other cultures are bullied relentlessly for eating “weird” foods, and a lot of them give up or insist to their families that they can’t eat those foods anymore, which creates an internal spiral of hurt.
