I don't know about you, but I, for one, am glad that 2009 is over and done.
I have been thinking over all the names that I have been called this year:
A domestic terrorist - This done by a DHS report.
Right-winged Nut - I guess that this isn't really new. I live in a very liberal area, so thinking that the government doesn't owe me anything makes me a nut from their point of view.
Tea-bagger - I actually did know what this term meant. I am just not sure how exactly it is a put down, but I will leave that to Anderson Cooper to explain.
Racist - I don't think that I have ever been called a racist until President Obama started running for President. Hmm, I guess that is something that came upon me suddenly.
Redneck Teabagging Racist - I guess Ms. Garfalo had to go a step further than Anderson Cooper. I don't really think that I am a redneck. I am well educated, grew up in New England and prefer silk and cashmere over flannel.
According to the crazy Congressman from Florida, I just want people to die since I am a republican. Although, I am really a conservative not a republican.
Harry Reid has said that I support slavery since I don't agree with him on healthcare reform.
Michele Obama has said that this is a women's issue. So, as well as being a racist, a redneck, tea bagger, a supporter of slavery, a completely unfeeling person who wants people to die; I am also a bad woman. How do I live with myself I wonder?
The French foreign minister has called me an ugly American because I think admitted child rapist Roman Polanski belongs in jail. This is a badge that I will wear proudly.
I am still waiting on the checks to arrive for showing up at tea parties and my local town hall meetings.
Barbara Boxer thinks I am too well dressed. Well, I do try. I am glad she noticed.
I don't normally make New Year's Resolutions because I won't follow through on them. I am going to make an exception this year:
My resolution is that I am going to work as hard as I possibly can to clean out the swamp that has become our federal government.
I hope that you all have a safe and enjoyable evening tonight. Welcome to 2010, a year for the conservatives to show what they are made of.
