Was the Iowa Democratic Chair in the tank for Clinton? Some idiot neighbor told me that.


-by Melody Siegler

Oh, just shush. Or course not. She’s a Woman. Women always hold to higher moral values than men. And to stray a bit, in the South where I now live, they are always kinder. They say things like “I really like your dress. Did you make it yourself?” I’ve been an expert seamstress since the age of 12 (really) so clearly that was a Supreme Compliment. Especially because Betsy Ross was an expert seamstress.

And, given their (our) higher values, that of course explains why any “real” woman would want Hillary for President. And, anyway, we women in America live in the greatest, most exceptional country in the world.

I have to admit (although I don’t often pay attention to the news) that I was really disappointed when Hillary said her vote for the Iraq invasion was a mistake. She must have been under enormous pressure to do so by men, always of lesser moral values. Take that man, whatever his name is, the one challenging Hillary, who voted against invading Iraq, and some other places I can’t remember.

And, I was disappointed when Hillary changed her tune on the Defense of Marriage Act, in favor of gay whatever. She must have bee subjected to some kind of gay male pressure. After all, from all I’ve heard, she and Bill have had one of the most enduring and loving marriages known, ever.

However, in addition to all their superior assets, Women are Fair. So, I feel a duty to report some of the scurrilous information circulating about Dr. Andrea (Andy) McGuire, head of the Iowa Democratic Party. No doubt it was men who are responsible for this.

As men are particularly interested in Cars, it seems appropriate to give a picture of her (IDP chair) supposed license plate:

Here’s something else seems to be troubling for some, but not We Women:
McGuire was co-chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign in Iowa.

McGuire had Hillary Clinton fundraisers in her home. In 2007, the New York Times reported, “On Friday night, Mrs. Clinton had dinner in Des Moines at the home of a leading Democrat, Andrea McGuire, and was joined by several other influential party members: Mr. Boswell; the state Senate Democratic leader, Michael Gronstal; and Bonnie Campbell, the former state attorney general, among others.” (“Clinton, in Iowa, Vows to ‘Renew the Promise of America,’” New York Times, 1/28/07)
After all, dinner parties with Important People have been the back bone of American life for decades. If you don’t know that, then you weren’t reading McCalls and Good Housekeeping back in the 1950’s and 1960’s like I was.

On to the next issue, which goes right along with my point about Women having superior morals:
The Sanders campaign is rechecking results on its own, going precinct by precinct,a nd is already finding inconsistencies,said Rania Batrice, a Sanders spokeswoman. The campaign seeks the math sheets or other paperwork that precinct chairs filled out and were supposed to return to the state party. They want to compare those documents to the results entered into a Microsoft app and sent to the party.

"Let's compare notes. Let's see if they match," Batrice said Wednesday.

Dr. Andy McGuire [a junior Wasserman Schultz sleaze-bag kind of character], chairwoman of the Iowa Democratic Party, dug in her heels and said no.
And, this insulting statement:
But there is something else at play here as well. She is ideologically opposed to Sanders’ Medicare For All policy and possibly even financially invested in keeping him from achieving it. That means she is definitely opposed to keeping us from having single payer healthcare because at one time she headed up a Medicaid privatization program in Iowa.

For “Andy” McGuire, Bernie Sanders’ revolution is the last thing she wants to see take shape in this country and therefore, helping Microsoft steal the Iowa caucus for her neoliberal candidate doesn’t seem like much of a stretch of the imagination.
In closing, this is great information about McGuire’s role in caring for the health of Americans. McGuire Steps Down as President of Meridian Health Plan.
Over the last three years, McGuire has worked to improve the quality of care among the Medicaid population at Meridian Health Plan-- doubling immunization rates, dramatically increasing prenatal care and growing the company from zero to over 50,000 members in 44 counties across the State of Iowa.

"I've spent the past 15 years in health care management and I'm extraordinarily proud of what we accomplished in such a short time at Meridian Health Plan," said McGuire. "But the timing is right for me to pass the torch to a new president at Meridian."

"Dr. McGuire took our footprint in Iowa from zero to over 50,000 members, in every corner of this state," said Dr. David Cotton, CEO and founder of Meridian Health Plan. "This is an amazing accomplishment. We are sad to lose her as President, but thankful she will stay on as a consultant to our company, providing us with her expert advice and institutional knowledge of the healthcare industry in Iowa."

Meridian Health Plan is a family-owned, family-operated health plan with extensive experience in its subsidiary operations in Michigan, Illinois and Iowa. Meridian's affiliates include Medicaid and Medicare health plans and prescription drug plans, a commercial plan available through the Health Insurance Marketplace and MeridianRx, a Pharmacy Benefit Management company. Meridian Health Plan currently serves more than 650,000 Medicaid members.
As a Woman, I really don’t mind if Dr. McGuire earned a ton of bucks in the Health Care Industry. Taking care of sick people has always fallen on the Shoulders of Women. It’s something to be proud of.

Who’s this nutso guy who wants to change all that? What’s all this blah blah about the U.S. being the only country in the developed world without Universal Health Care? What’s that “single payer” stuff? I, for one, as a Woman and a Citizen want the U.S. to remain exceptional.

Women are completely equal-- including being equally corrupt


Madeleine "Disgusting Serbs, get out!" Albright tried shaming women into supporting the establishment neocon she strongly backs by croaking "there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other"... although I think she exempts women like herself who advocate bombing women and children and order sanctions that starve them. Het we all get hot under the collars during an election season, right? You probably already read that Gloria Steinem said that young women support Bernie because they want attention from boys. She mentioned it on Real Time With Bill Maher: "Women are more for [Clinton] than men are... First of all, women get more radical as we get older, because we experience... not to over-generalize, but... Men tend to get more conservative because they gain power as they age; women get more radical because they lose power as they age. And, when you’re young, you’re thinking, where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie." Still... there are a lot of gay boys with Hillary-- despite her vomit-inducing, anti-gay record-- and they want to be with the boys too, no?

And remember, even though Hillary went to Wellesley, an exclusive all-girls school (where Hillary went and was president of the Young Republicans), where there are few boys to impress, Bernie was endorsed last week over Hillary.
