What the fuck is this shit about Gillibrand promoting herself as a "young mom"? According to Wikipedia, she had her first child at age 37.
As did I, and I can assure you that nobody mistook me for a "young mom." IIRC, I was labeled "geriatric pregnancy."
Oh my! Having a kid in your 30s, first, third, or fifth, is just plain old pregnant woman, neither young nor old. My mother was 46 when she had me—I was, um, a last moment of unprotected passion between my parents—which is more appropriately a geriatric pregnancy.

The other thing about that "young mom" claim is that it generally has connotations of struggling to pay bills, finishing school, or starting a career. Identifying as a young mom signals that this is a lot harder than normal. She was an established corporate lawyer, for fuck's sake. The Clinton is strong with this one …
And the Palin.
Ugh. How has she not gotten an appointment from Trump?

So she's going to try to teach them to fake being non-asshole corporate shills? Is this actually a good idea?

Gonna be a few more elections before the backlog of liberals who came of age in the Clinton years, when Democrats truly learned to hate the poor, is cleared out.

And on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a person of colour who as attorney general in California turned a blind eye to police and prison abuses, announces her run for president. Maybe the arc of history bends to irony.

Kamala Harris Assembles Campaign Staff Of Unpaid California Prison Laborers

WASHINGTON—On the heels of yesterday’s announcement that she would be running for president, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) reportedly began staffing her campaign Tuesday with unpaid inmates from California correctional facilities. “I’m so grateful to have such an incredible and devoted team headed up by my new campaign manager, Spider, as we work together to fight for American values,” said Harris of the two dozen non-violent criminal offenders who would reportedly work shifts of up to 72 hours out of her campaign office in exchange for three square meals a day and all the “Kamala Harris 2020” merchandise they could carry. “Whether it’s knocking on doors, leading focus groups, making phone calls, or helping prep me for upcoming media appearances, my entire staff will be comprised of unpaid prison laborers. Not only will this cut campaign-related expenses by up to $20 million, it will also allow inmates to spend time in the community and provide them with valuable work-related opportunities.” Harris added that due to a quirk in California state law, most inmates would be ineligible to work for other political campaigns once they’d been released from prison.

Like Clinton I, too, am excited to do everything I can to make sure Trump is easily re-elected president.

Gack. I saw this article this morning and cringed. I can't understand how anyone could think this was a good idea. Honestly - most of us didn't really want her in 2016 and we sure as heck don't want her in 2020. There are always going to be the diehards who want her to run again - but for this to be coming straight from HRC is insane. Goodbye - farewell.

There are at least three women who have announced presidential bids so far that I'd vote for ahead of HRC, and I can't imagine I'm alone there - even among pretty rank & file type Dems.
