#DemsInPhilly:  Trust in Household Names, Celebrity Donkeys, Journalists, Michelle Obama, Women and Bill

We here at Victory Girls care about our readers. I took one for the team last night and watched the #DNCInPhilly. I couldn’t bring myself to do it the night before. On Monday evening, I actually opted to watch “Sponge Bob, The Movie” with my son. That’s saying a lot considering I found the flick to be the biggest time suck of an hour and a half of my life the first time I watched it but I digress. Without further pause, we bring you the highlights of last night.

1. Al Sharpton wants us to make household names of….who?

Any credibility Mothers of the Movement may have garnered at the DNC was, in my opinion, was completely negated by the ramblings of Al Sharpton. As a mother, I can totally sympathize with the loss of a child. Were their children saints? By no means. But what about those lost in the real battlefields? What about the mothers of fallen military service members? Overseas contractors in support of the military? Police officers? Do they also merit household names? I can think of four who do. What would happen if Clinton uttered her classic “what difference does it make?” with regard to Treyvon?

2. Some celebrities really are twits.

“I’m Lena Dunham, and according to Donald, my body is ‘probably, like, a two’.”-Lena Dunham

“…And, according to Donald Trump, I’m probably a rapist.”-America Ferrera

Why should we listen to celebrities? Because they’re relevant? Because Lena Dunham is, after all, the epitome of relevant. I guess we should be thanking our lucky stars that her co-appearance with Ferrera was only but a few magical moments and that yes, she remained in full garb.

3. Journalists are a really biased lot.

Just ask Mr. Tingly leg, Chris Matthews. Seems he is not the only one that is, uhhh– stimulated. Unbiased? Fairness in journalism? Nah. All of that goes out the window. I sat through the coverage on MSNBC where hours on end were spent contrasting the “darkness” of last week’s RNC to the ebullience of this week’s DNC thus far. People are coming together. There are only a “handful” of protests outside. Could it have something to do with their four-mile fence?! Oh, and have we mentioned that (according to them) Hillary Clinton is gaining back the trust of the Americans? They’ll alternate between asking the rhetorical question with regard to her trustworthiness (or lack thereof) and throw in subtle messages here and there over the next few days about the sheer “positivity” of the event and how it possibly elevated Clinton on the scale.

4. Michelle Obama Really is Hillary Clinton’s Ace-In-The-Hole.

The media is hammering this. Michelle made the night for Hillary and clinched the nomination for her yesterday. That is the story and they are sticking to it. In the back of my mind, I remember this portion of her speech:

When they set off for their first day at their new school, I will never forget that winter morning as I watched our girls, just 7 and 10 years old, pile into those black SUVs with all those big men with guns.

And I saw their little faces pressed up against the window, and the only thing I could think was, what have we done?

So-was that an argument for…or against your gun agenda, Hillary? You wouldn’t be in opposition to a First Lady who supports you protecting her family, would you?

5. …And if Michelle doesn’t do it for you, your uterus should.

(If you’re a woman that is.) And, seriously. Even though Cecile Richards said the “a” word last night, abortion still is clumped in under the umbrella of “women’s health care”. Hillary Clinton is a woman. She has a uterus just like all of us other women. By this logic, we are one and we all should vote for the one with the, pardon my crudeness, the almighty uterus.

Yet she supports individuals such as Cecile Richards and snuffing out an unknown life that could also be a prolific and inspirational–woman. Yes, with a uterus. A real change maker.

And speaking of lady parts…

6. Bill Clinton sure does like the word “Change maker”.

I almost busted out with the shot glasses after I heard “change Maker” for the third time. The prospective First-Man came out on stage looking much younger than he did during his presidency in the ’90s. We heard the beginnings of the Bill and Hillary love story. Mr. Clinton spoke lovingly about his spouse and shared tender moments and her achievements to the point of being folksy and a bit hokey.

“So, look, this is a really important point for you to take out of this convention. If you believe in making change from the bottom-up, if you believe the measure of change is how many lives are bettered, you know it is hard and some people think it is boring. Speeches like this are fun. Actually doing the work is hard. So people say, well we need to change.

She has been around a long time. She sure has. And she has sure been worth every single year she has put into making people’s lives better. I can tell you this — if you were sitting where I am sitting and you heard what I have heard and at every dinner conversation, every lunch conversation, on every long walk, you would say, “This woman has never been satisfied with the status quo in anything.” She always wants to move the ball forward. That is just who she is.”-Bill Clinton

To sum up last night, we have a raving lunatic telling us that we should trust Hillary Clinton because she made household names of young men who sparked a movement that has seen the deaths of our law enforcement officers, we have celebrities telling us to vote for her and trust her because we can’t trust what the other guy (Trump) says. We have the “vote your uterus” crowd (never mind the conscience) and theme running throughout, journalists punching the word “trust” in the hopes of swaying the ones still on the fence and a man who philandered all about The White House during his presidency discussing trustworthiness. Now, let that all sink in.

    Hey! That’s transphobic, dangit! Not actually having a uterus shouldn’t prevent you from voting on the basis of having one! Errr…. Being a woman shouldn’t negate your vote just because you don’t have a uterus! No… wait… I’ll get this…. Don’t hate on me, you genderist!

    “This woman has never been satisfied with the status quo in anything.”

    Which translates to “Why can’t this harridan just leave me the heck alone?!”
