A bright young man!

A recap of my Thanksgiving weekend for anyone bored enough to care!

Went to the Philly burbs to visit my sister and her family. My sis, The Lady Jaan, told me that her son Martin changed his FB status to “I had the best Thanksgiving ever thanks to Lady Bunny.” The little sweetheart was trying to hook me up with venues to perform at in Philly.
 
His little sister Clara was not as impressed. She no longer “approves” of me because I’m gay/drag/trans fats-whatever I am-could care-less-about-pronouns because she has recently converted to Catholicism. (No one in our family has ever been catholic on either side.) This from the nut who was considering herself trans two years ago. Now her religion makes her frown on gays. You frown on ME? Bitch, please! I frowned on the pedophile ring you worship decades before you were born! Next!
 
Clara is in a difficult phase and at one point, her mom asked to to take something to the trash to help out. When she griped, my by now fairly mellow dad snapped at how inconsiderate she was being and then I joined in to berate her. I was thinking “I’m joining forces with my dad (never happens) to defend my sister (never happens). I felt a bit nervous that my father and I had ganged up on a 22 year young lady, but my sister just laughed it off and said “I’m glad I’m not the one yelling (at her) tonight.”
 
On Saturday, Duke Todd celebrated his 50th birthday at Billy Erb‘s apartment. Gwen Guthrie 12 inch mixes were most of the soundtrack, but Sister Dimension made an impromptu appearance in makeshift headdress with MC Praise, the delightful daughter of Tobie Giddio. I don’t know if we are still allowed to use this expression, but with glitter eye make-up and a hand which never left the microphone, Praise is definitely a hambone and probably a future (rhymes with) drag hag. Seen: Paul E Alexander, Pia Guccione and Cynthia Powell.
 
Sunday, I got to visit Lauren Pine in the hospital and met her delightful mom and sister. Lauren was in good spirits despite her awful injury and her sister told a funny tale about when Lauren was on so many meds that she was weaving in and out of consciousness and saying some crazy things. Like “What is my next line?” and “What is the next scene?” (Lauren has no acting aspirations that I know of.) The sister told her “I think we’re still in the hospital scene.” Mom and sis return to CA today so if you wanted to visit our dear Lauren, this would be a great week. As will next week and the week after. It will be a lengthy recovery.
 
I met my lesbian comic friend Marilyn Pittman later that night, who’s visiting from SF and I treated her to the delish polish restaurant Vesleka. Inexpensive and delicious, I’ve never taken anyone there who hasn’t loved it. That minced beet salad with the horseradish! They don’t have their Christmas borscht on the menu yet, but that shit has cinnamon in it and cannot be believed!
 
Then we saw John Roberts Jr. hysterical show at Joe’s Pub. Marilyn and I got the last two seats and busted our very full guts to John’s zany antics. I’m glad John moved back to New Jersey from LA–this show was only $15 and had a very funny guest comic, a band and three back-up singers which included Xavier Smith. One of the lady singers had such a sumptuous and beautifully displayed décolletage that I couldn’t keep my eye off of her. John, please put her in a high-necked blouse next time so I can focus. Cuz I’m straight now.
 
Seen: John’s former Optigrab bandmate and platinum style icon Tracy Murphy, Todd Thomas and I was seated next to John’s sister, who was a hoot and a half. Next to them was a gay couple. Fresh meat from Jersey! One was a tall Puerto Rican stud so gorgeous that I was literally drooling. Drooling while laughing is not a very good look. But I was so taken with this hunk that when John did a lesbian poetess character whose poem referenced boiling her dildo, I was literally laughing, drooling, batting my eyelashes and rehearsing how I might tell that fine thing after the show “I know you’ve never had no need to buy, use or boil a dildo, did you?” Instead I walked home with a Candace Bergen lookalike in a leather jacket who does Shania Twain’s hair. She said that when Shani judged Drag Race, the queens all screamed over her. I didn’t think they would even remember her at their young age, but she’s making a comeback.
 
I know this is long and not that interesting, but at least it isn’t about politics! Hope you had a great weekend! Here’s Sister Dimension clowning with Praise and her big mouth. MG_4356 2

Sunday night tea dance! Bring it on!

I am so thrilled to be returning to spin disco classics at The Monster tomorrow night. I’ve been away for weeks and I’ve missed y’all! So I am really going to throw down tomorrow from 6-10PM. And you are going to throw up. And I am going to eat it. And then you are going to c#m. And I am going to video it and not upload it to social media. So in order to catch all of this magic, you’ll just have to be there! It’s free!

An open letter to Senator Elizabeth Warren @SenWarren

Dear Elizabeth Warren. Thanks for confirming Donna Brazile’s assertions that the DNC was run by the Clinton campaign and it shafted Bernie Sanders’ chances at the nomination. Democrats look to you as a progressive beacon within the establishment so you gave Brazile’s bombshell accusations credence for all democrats. (Even though Brazile has been working for the Clintons since Bill was in office–few Clinton loyalists are more loyal than Donna–so Clinonists should believe her if anyone.) Bernie supporters feel vindicated, but we aren’t rejoicing. We didn’t want Trump in the White House, either, and feel that unlike Clinton, Bernie could’ve beaten him.

But Liz, if you’re so progressive, why’d you wait so long? Are you not a principled leader who has the decency to call out corruption in your party apparatus while it’s happening? When it could impact the choice of nominee and give us one who might not lose to Trump? You just wait for Donna Brazile, already disgraced and fired from CNN by feeding Clinton email questions, to spill the beans? If that’s leadership, I’m Marilyn Monroe.

And why didn’t you endorse Bernie Sanders in your state of Massachusetts if you’re so damned progressive? No one could call Clinton progressive. Even after Bernie beat her in 22 states, sent her limping to the convention and she was forced to adopt many of his policies which she’d just spent the primaries denouncing as radical or pie-in-the-sky. With Bill Clinton posing for selfies in Massachusetts polling places, Sanders needed your help, Elizabeth, and you now claim you saw him being kneecapped by the DNC. Maybe you’re just a career politician who would didn’t want to make waves within the party. (In other words, a dud who we can never count on, whose loyalty is to a party which cheats.) Or maybe you wanted a failure like Hillary to run so that you could be the first female president instead when she lost?

Whatever your reason, it’s too little too late. And your recent vote for the Trump’s $700 billion defense budget proves that not only are you not a progressive, you aren’t even a part of the resistance. Now tell me your campaign stump speech sob story again about how your dad went broke due to shaky credit card practices, and that’s why you’re such a champion for consumers. Yeah, while you endorsed Hillary, who didn’t want to regulate banks because she was funded by big finance. And sat back watched the DNC screw Sanders, who DID want to stop predatory lenders who crashed our economy and housing market. With consumer advocates like you, who needs enemies? Next!

Time to ignore establishment Democrats.

Clinton loyalists will tell you that it was fine for the DNC to cheat Bernie Sanders since he’s an Independent. Yet Clinton practically bought the party in 2015, so she also cheated these three democrats who ran in the primary: Jim Webb, Martin O’Malley and Lincoln Chafee. Not a problem for you?
 
If cheating and colluding during an election doesn’t bother you, then why are you whining about Trump’s alleged ties to Russia influencing the election? Either cheating does or does not bother you. If you welcome a tilting of the scales when your candidate does it, you have no interest in fair elections. Your messsage of “We need party unity so we can cheat the grassroots candidates again” is as absurd as you backing a candidate who cheated and still lost…to the moronic Trump! Your folly tanked the Democratic Party. Who in their right mind would take your advice now? Someone seeking more corruption and future GOP victories?

Hmmmmmm…

Trump is crazy, right? He’s angling for war in North Korea, Iran, Venezuela and who knows where else? That was one major objection to Trump from even republicans–no one wanted that hothead to have the nuclear codes and be able to bomb the earth to smithereens.
 
So why did Elizabeth Warren, Corey Booker and Kamala Harris all green light Trump’s military budget with their votes recently?
 
Look at your “progressive” democrats in the pic below–all three rising stars in the party who may run in 2020. They’d rather give Trump more defense dollars money than he asked for and then claim the US can’t afford the same single payer health care system which most industrialized countries enjoy.
 
Neoliberals are democrats who support war and corporate interests over the people they allegedly represent. Failed neoliberal policies include pointless military interventions all over the world, and cozying up to banks which crash the economy and housing market. Obama and the Clintons’ neoliberal polices (like job-killing NAFTA and TPP trade deals) are part of what handed Trump the election. When you lose to a nut job like Trump, you shift your gears, right? Not these democrats.
 
When you hear people bitch about both parties being the same, this is exactly what we mean. They are the same when it comes to defense, which 1/2 our our tax dollars go to pay for. Congress always has a fortune to spend on wars few understand. Yet these are military concerns of the elite–average Americans want less war. Spending on job creation, more affordable college and health care, rebuilding the crumbling infrastructure, helping out in Flint and Puerto Rico. etc…the money just never seems to be there. But give Trump a bigger war chest than he asks for and even the democratic rising stars are all in. Some resistance. Both Trump and the resistance need to be resisted if they are warmongers like Obama and Clinton.
