Tina Fey: And finally, the most important women's news item there is.
We have our first serious female presidential candidate in Hillary Clinton, and yet, women have come so far as feminists that they don't feel obligated to vote for a candidate just because she's a woman. Women today feel perfectly free to make whatever choice Oprah tells them to.
Which raises the question: Why are people abandoning Hillary for Obama? Some say that they are put off by the fact that Hillary can't control her husband and that we would end up with co-presidents. 'Cuz that would be terrible, having two intelligent qualified people working together to solve problems. Ughh. Why would you let Starsky talk to Hutch? I wanna watch that show "Starsky."
You know, what is it, America? What is it? Are you weirded out that they're married? Because I can promise you they're having exactly as much sex with each other as George Bush and Jeb Bush are.
Then there is the scrutiny of her physical appearance. Rush Limbaugh, the Jeff Conaway of right wing radio, said that he doesn't think America is ready to watch their president, "Turn into an old lady in front of them." Really? They didn't seem to mind when Ronald Reagan did that.
I think what bothers me the most is when people say that Hillary is a bitch. Let me say something about that. Yeah, she is. And so am I. And so is this one [points to Amy Poehler].
Amy Poehler: Yeah, deal with it.
Tina F: You know what? Bitches get stuff done. That's why Catholic schools use nuns as teachers and not priests. Those nuns are mean old clams, and they sleep on cots and they're allowed to hit you. And at the end of the school year you hated those bitches, but you knew the capital of Vermont.
So, I'm saying it's not too late, Texas and Ohio. Get on board. Bitch is the new black!
Amy Poehler: Tina Fey, everyone!

Now we find out that my wife's twin sister and family will move to the area as her husband embarks on a new career. Since my Father got married and moved here from Eastern Washington a while back, and since I already had a variety of cousins as well as an aunt and uncle here, we can really call Seattle home.

Niehaus, who has been with the Mariners since their inception in 1977, is noted for his trademark "My Oh My"andhis "grand salami" call. The call that send shivers down the spines of Mariner fans occurred in the 1995 Play offs, when Edgar Martinez hit a game winning double beating the Yankees, as Ken Griffey scored the winning run from first base, the entire teams piled on top of him and Niehaus exclaimed "I don't believe it!"

This is what one participate told the Seattle Times
MAPLE VALLEY -- 3:27 p.m. Reporting from Rock Creek Elementary Democratic Caucus: "Our final votes are in, 25 for Obama and 16 for Clinton...closer than I would have predicted, perhaps some of the speeches were more persuasive than I'd thought. Still a bit of confusion about the forms, how to calculate the number of delegates and who attends the next meeting...but the volunteers are very helpful with us 'newbs'. And now I'm a delegate to the district convention on April 5th, I'm excited to see the next step in this process. "Good luck, everyone and thanks for participating!"
In the end, it was so good to see so many young people. It looks like politics is cool again and even better yet, so is being a Democrat. For all the hassles, I think it all turned out well. Thank you to Mark, Rob, Raquel, Debra, and Lynn and to the caucus chairs who showed the amazing abiliity to follow somewhat complicated instructions with little training.
