So this is the first of perhaps a few guest blogger posts. I’m glad to have some help from my readers and blogging friends to keep the momentum on this site going as I go through a bit of a lull and work through some issues with voice in my writing.
So as I embark with you on this experiment, let’s all remember that these posts do not necessarily represent MY ideas, political positions, or conspiracy theories – so comments should be directed accordingly.
Thanks so much to Ryan for writing this, and picking up some of my recent slack on this blog. and let’s have a bit of discussion, yes? Here goes:

Feminist Feels Good about 2008 Election
(SNN Coffeyville) Sue Valance is an everyday normal person, much like any other. But there is something different about Sue. She is a feminist and she is happy.
“I have been a feminist all my life. The other day, I was thinking about the 2008 elections, and I thought to myself, ‘How far we have come, that I would actually consider voting against a black woman,'” Sue told around 400 reporters, who had gathered for her press conference.
“Being able to imagine the ability to vote for a woman president is an opportunity I never thought I would see in my lifetime,” Sue continued. “And to be able to say that I would even consider voting against her is an amazing feeling.”
RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman said of Valance’s statements, “This is an excellent example of why we call the GOP the Big Tent Party. No matter what your race, creed, sex or color, we accept anyone willing to support rich, white, Christian men.”
