I'm new to political blogging but have been writing most of my life about different things. I campaigned for President Clinton when he was just Governor Clinton in Orange County. I graduated from Smith College with a BA in English and a minor in Film.

I’m sure that’s what many think of when reading about politics in Orange County but it seems that Republicans in the State of California have not given in to the idea that the State is “Hopelessly Blue”. I hate to inform them, but I think they are in for a rude awakening. Hoping to find…

How many words for this picture?

Yes, caption this, I know, it’s tired but it amuses me to no end.  Now even though I highly doubt I will post anything as salacious or offensive as they do over at DListed, there is always a neverending source of cute or ironic political photos.  I’d file this one under “cute”.  (Hopefully no one…
