Rachel Maddow Eating A Chimichanga Is My Patronus

by Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] on February 10, 2012

in All About Me,And Then Some,I like to eat,Observations,Politics

This kind of has nothing to do with my girl-crush on Rachel Maddow, except it does because now it’s too hard not to have a crush on her smarts.

It’s no secret that I’m a liberal Democrat. I watch and read the news with as open a mind as I can manage. Though I may say that politics are ridiculous, there’s nothing better than following all the flip-flopping, pandering, gaffes, and mind-bending statements made during an election year. Because politics are ridiculous.

Our president is not perfect; no president is. I support President Obama, and with my support comes criticism as I believe it should.

This new healthcare reform law that the President presented to Congress that would require all companies to cover contraception with no copay for women is one I support. Women have the right and responsibility to take care of our bodies with what medical science has provided. Whether we use the contraception to prevent pregnancy, or like in my case to prevent acne, using contraception is a choice made by 98% of American women.

Rachel Maddow can explain the details much better than my politically amateur brain can manage:

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

So now you’ll see why Rachel Maddow is a wizardly representation of me.

There are times when I watch her show and cringe at how she makes her point, but even the Sweet, Sweet Baby Jeebus and Mama Oprah aren’t always perfect.

You, Ms. Maddow, are my Patronus.

I’ve also reserved a chimichanga as my Patronus, so if you see an apparition of Rachel Maddow eating a deep fried burrito, you’ll know it’s my energy protecting myself from evil.

The thing about Obama is he may not be a perfect president, but he’s not the only person responsible for the state of things. When everything he proposes has to go through a congress that acts like a bunch of 5-yr olds up past nap time, it’s no wonder things don’t get done. And since I don’t see any other candidate for president that I’d vote for, I’m willing to give Obama another shot.

And if healthcare companies cover viagra, then they should, in all fairness, cover contraception. Besides, with 7 billion people in the world, last thing we need are more families like the Duggars or Kate + 8 running around. LOL

HEAR HEAR!

And this is my favorite line today: “a congress that acts like a bunch of 5-yr olds up past nap time”

I love you. Let’s elope. (And I mean that in the most non-creepy way possible.)

Just not in Florida. No gay marriage here. I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re the last state to allow it. Jerky Florida.

I guess this is my way of saying YES!

I feel your pain; I’m in Oklahoma. That’s why we’d have to elope.
