Burt Prelutsky Describes California Female Politicians

“Frankly, I don’t know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I’m not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we’re number one. There’s no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on ‘Macbeth’. The three of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don’t know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words.”

The article is worth reading for that line alone.

The Gentlewoman from California objects.

She insists you call her SENATOR Dingbat.

Apparently he hasn’t met the two dummy senators from WA State.

Washington State is up there with Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell. ...especially the former.

But yeah, CA takes the "prize."

When I asked my lib-in-law why she trusted the abilities of Congress and the president, she said

“they must be intelligent and capable, otherwise they wouldn’t have gotten elected”.

I responded “ever heard of Maxine Waters or Cynthia McKinney?”

Nope.

This is an incredible article and there is so much truth in it. I live in NOCAL and I can tell you it's worse here than in LA but it's bad there as well. The women in the SF Bay area are the most rotten and obnoxious I've ever seen (although I have a friend from NY who says it's just as bad ther). So in a sense Boxer, Feinstein, and Pelosi are representative of them. I know so many single guys that have a lot of problems with the women in this area.

These women are filled with hate like you have never seen hate. We have a host of local politicians, radio talk show hosts, academic types and the likes who are just seething with hate. Yes I used the word hate because it's beyond obnoxious. I've known men to leave good jobs and go to Arizona, Texas and other places just to look for a wife because women in the SF Bay are so awful. LA is a little better. At least the women in SOCAL are good looking. In NOCAL you have the worst of both worlds, ugly, obnoxious, and more often than not stupid.

Probably excluded them because of their

Excuse me, but SF is not Northern California, it is central cal and those of us in Northern California resent anyone who tries to stick us with that hell hole of an area, the bay area.

I agree with you- sort of. Yes in a strict geographical sense, the SF Bay area is in the central part of the state. But when many people refer to Northern California they are talking about the area north of Santa Barbara. Ridiculous? Yes of course but I didn't create this and I wouldn't know how to fight it. I'm swimming upstream against Niagara Falls. People in the far North of California get tainted with stigma of the cesspool of the SF Bay area. I don't blame you for being upset but how do you change this?

But this isn't the only case of something not making sense geographically. When some people refer to the mid-west they are talking about Ohio & Michigan and that area. Looking at a map of the US that's preposterous but when people say the Mid-West, that's what they are talking about. When many people talk about the East Coast, many people are talking about NY City. That makes me furious because I'm from Virginia originally and that's the East Coast as well. Can you get more East Coast then Miami? Or is Miami in the Caribbean? Where's the South? Where does it start? Ask people and you will get many different answers. When I lived in LA I met people who referred to people from back east as anything east of the Sierras. I'm not joking. Is Texas the South or the West or perhaps the Southwest? Even Texans disagree. I've actually heard Texans auguring this. So we are stuck with the vocabulary we've inherited.
