Watching the election results go final, I just realized that Jeff represents the Republicans, the adversity to a reality-based lifestyle. Brilliant!
Joanie, she won. Elizabeth won, Joanie! You did it. We are so grateful. Now go home and rest, Dear Lady -- you more than deserve it.
I yelled "Yeaaa!" at the Elizabeth Warren victory announcement tonight. My daughter asked, "How do you care so much about her? We're in Colorado." I told her I lived through it in Doonesbury for a long time.
Congratulations, Joanie and Elizabeth! Rick should be there in about an hour and a half. Hopefully there will be an even bigger reason to celebrate.
YAHOO!!!! Thank you, Joanie! Elizabeth WON!!!! You go, girl!
Let me be one of the first to congratulate Joanie and the team on a race well won and a well-deserved win. And thanks to Doonesbury for giving Dr. Warren a boost.
CONGRATULATIONS to Joanie and the whole Warren campaign!
Elizabeth Warren won! Thanks, Joanie! (And the rest of her staff.)
Just one little thing about abandoning your nurse...
Re TELEPHONE CALL: One of the many, many joys of this Doonesbury site is its assumption that we will understand (and of course possibly apply) its use of the word 'approbation.' The whole thing is a little oasis of pleasure in a frequently depressing world. More power to your elbow, GBT, and fingers crossed here in Europe for Tuesday's outcome.
This is just a note to express my eternal gratitude for making me laugh and saving my sanity throughout this ghastly election. Please keep holding people's feet to the fire. Love and thanks.
That's truly a scary commentary today. Man...Now I'm worried about Tuesday.
At the end of today's strip, the response to Leo's mother should have been: "Remember when you lost your house and had to move into this trailer?"
I wonder if there is really a humor-perceiving constituency for today's anti-Wall-Street strip. I won't trouble you explicitly with my accuracy concern because I did see the strip in the funny pages -- where editorializing is acceptable.
What an awful woman -- leaves the hospital and doesn't tell her nurse? That's not cute, it's mean!
Whoa! Waitaminute! Poor Joanie? Fragile health? Dutiful wife and mother? Who the hell are we talking about here? As a woman of Caucus years (and a Warren volunteer), I must object. Joanie is anything but poor and fragile. It's my guess she isn't a dutiful wife and mother but rather one who is a good spouse and mom due to zest, humor, and balance rather than dry duty. Were she real, I'd be buying her flowers and bringing them to the Warren campaign office for us both to enjoy. Over coffee. While making phone calls.
I sincerely hope that this is not going to be the end of the lady who hitchhiked a ride to Walden, enriched hundreds of children's lives at the nursery, entered law school, and served our nation. Please?
A predicate nominative! Oh, joy! And wouldn't it be Joanie who answers a telephone call in this old-fashioned and -- speaking strictly -- "correct" way.
Even total hip replacement patients are typically up and home within two or three days in the UK, walking with crutches. No driving, but they can be driven. Joanie attending the meeting is perfectly feasible.
Perhaps next time Joanie can get a minimally invasive anterior hip replacement. My husband had one last Thursday and was home in 23 hours. He used a cane, and we walked up and down our street. He started working at home on Saturday.
