It seems as if the shutdown has dragged on for so long that we should be using Roman numerals to count the fucking days. And the weather ain’t helping things any, with temps that resemble the hopes and dreams of many Americans right about now.
I decided to warm things up with a Vera post, since it’s been way too long. I watched The Commuter recently, in which Vera plays a total bad ass opposite Liam Neeson. So basically, Vera took a highly forgettable movie and turned it into bad girl theater. Worth it.
I’ve compiled a magnificent seven of politicos with the express intent of not being political in the least. And for anyone who believes it demeaning that I post a beauty pageant for women who’ve achieved great things, chill the fuck out. It’s an appreciation of looks and smarts, and it’s a couple minutes of your time in which politicians are not being talked about in derisive tones by one side or the other.
You can thank Vera for that.
Kamala Harris- She just announced she will be running for President in 2020. But you don’t need 20/20 vision when setting your sights on this lovely. Feasting your focus on the Senator from California will have your eyes feeling as if they’re swimming in warm honey. She’s a razor sharp dresser with a smile that could talk the sun into overtime. And we’re gonna be seeing a lot more of her in the next couple years. No complaints here.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- She has crazy eyes, crazy silky lips, crazy dance moves and a crazy Latina temper. And really . . she had me at crazy. She’s not only representing the fourteenth district of New York, she’s representing a Paul Simon three minute novella. The one that saw independent minded mamacitas doing the business of men in suits in the proverbs of sass and soul.
Sheryl Sandberg- Okay, I cheated. Ms. Sandberg is not actually a politician but . . this is my list. And in my humble opinion, she should be. My forever crush has got the net worth (a billion and a half large) the reach and the oratory skills to mobilize. She’s got hot mama versatility in that you could see her rocking a Harvard sweatshirt to the movies or a jaw dropping black dress to a five star joint. And when she reads you to sleep with poetry . . oh my God. Not that I ever fantasized about such a thing . . .
Krysten Sinema- She’s the hottie next door neighbor you always want to run into for a friendly chat. Because she possesses the next gen librarian look, replete with Amy Lee lyrics in her locks and those sexy specs. It’s a mathematical equation I learned in the third grade, thanks to Ms. Makowski. Hot girls with glasses equals ballgame.
Tulsi Gabbard- She’s got a Victoria Principle vibe going, which wins the vote right there. And that voice, it’s so history teacher serious-like. And it makes me wanna find a reason to stay after school. Oh yeah . . and TG is running for President too! These debates are going to be the creamiest.
Kristi Noem- As the Governor of South Dakota, I imagine Kristi wears a cowboy hat and a sidearm. I imagine it all the time, in fact. This felonious femme brings the tropics to sub-zero weather. North Dakota should be petitioning for one Dakota, just so they could be in the same room with her.
Teresa Tomlinson- I dated a lady from Harrisburg who was the Mayor’s mirror image. From her sharp dressed sexy to the baubles that frame her neck in come hither to the smart ‘do that can erupt into crazy flames to the “I sleep alone,” parting shot on the other side. Let the record show that I never dated Ms. Tomlinson, however. Unless she’s running for President too . . .
That’ll do it for the first Vera voyage of 2019. I’d like to thank all the lovely ladies who took part in this Invitational for bringing the heat to sub-zero temps. In putting together this post, it was my sincere hope that we might be able to break bread, no matter our differences. And if some wine were to make the scene, all the better.
