Elizabeth Warren Is RUNNING! Let's Watch It Live!

popular

Elizabeth Warren is officially announcing her run for President of the United States today (Right now! As I write this!), in Lawrence, Massachusetts -- the site of the famous Lawrence Textile Mill Strike, often called The Strike For Bread and Roses.

AND SHE'S COMING OUT TO 9 to 5! IT'S A JAM!


Watch live: Elizabeth Warren makes an announcement in Lawrence, Mass. www.youtube.com

Now, if I were voting in the primaries (I am not, because I have been told I am too far left and should just leave primaries to Real Democrats.), I would absolutely, 100% vote for Warren. Because she knows how to get shit done and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a great thing. It helped people, and goddamnit they should have let her be in charge of it, and I will never stop being mad about that. Because I'm petty.

Elizabeth Warren is good at helping people. She is not a person who is easily scared or intimidated. She knows how to throw down and she knows how to break complicated things down in a way people can understand. That is why literally every video of her speaking went viral for two years. That is why Donald Trump goes after her constantly. She's good.

And that bankruptcy shit is important.

She's made some mistakes in her life, some of which might never have happened had Ancestry dot com existed in 1986. She was also a Republican for a long time. Personally, I like to think that people can change and that we should allow them to do so. If not, I'm not really sure what in the fuck I'm even doing here with my life.

Hello! Here a beautiful open thread for you to not comment all over, so that you don't not comment all over Dok's book club post.

I was gonna drop my Nonnie's recipe for Easter bread in here, but apparently it has to proof overnight and is also for approximately 87,000 people, so not much of a point to that! (Though here it is if you really want it. She doesn't do the egg thing, but if you want, you can put some dyed raw eggs in the braided dough before you bake. And you can add sprinkles, and anise if you're gross and like gross things) I was gonna try and make it myself last night, but have instead opted to just make waffles. Waffles are FINE.

So instead, I shall just leave you with this absolutely terrifying version of The Velveteen Rabbit starring Marie Osmond as said velveteen rabbit. Coincidentally, Marie Osmond is also Nonnie's 2nd arch-nemesis, after Rachel Ray (Rachel Ray because she doesn't pull her hair back when she cooks, and Marie for reasons I'm not entirely clear on but which I believe are related to a Weight Watchers commercial).

'Unemployed men queued outside a depression soup kitchen opened in Chicago by Al Capone' -- National Archives

Happy Day Before Half-Priced Easter Chocolate Day, Wonkers! Time to wrap up our Wonkette Book Club discussion of Winter War: Hoover, Roosevelt, and the First Clash Over the New Deal, by Erich Rauchway, a historian at UC-Davis. We're increasingly convinced the book might have just as well been titled Herbert Hoover: Christ, What An Asshole! As ever, even if you haven't finished the reading, jump in anyway -- there won't be a test!
