I'm pretty sure that the past few days have given me some serious ulcers. I've been concentrating this week on a political campaign pretty hardcore and was once again reminded of all the reasons that I will never be running for office. I have such a low capacity for bullshit and would just call people out on it, even if it wasn't politically expedient. Grrrr. I love the D*mocratic Party, I do, but there are some people that PISS ME OFF.
EDIT: This is not one of the presidential candidates. If it were, I would be hitting you all up for donations and making sure you were registered to vote.
I didn't think I'd be thinking about IF much this week. I've been scanning blogs whenever I take a break, but in terms of minute-to-minute I am not seeing kids or pregnant women and IF is not on my mind. However, tonight I was reminded why the person whose campaign I am working on is totally awesome. We were at a meeting of local d*mocratic club and all the candidates were there and answering questions. One woman asked a question about protecting women's rights. My candidate said he was pro-ch*ice and then went on to talk about insurance and how it was ridiculous that infertility treatment wasn't covered in our state. How it was a right that we should all have access to.
Seriously. I was sitting in the audience and my heart stopped. It wasn't a great answer in terms of the campaign, but it hit me head on. If I had any doubts before this about my candidate, they are gone. I so picked the right guy.
