It's a Herstoric Day Today!

Today was remarkable in that a woman became Speaker of the House of Representatives for the first time in America's history. The woman who became speaker is California's own Nancy Pelosi, who proudly embraces the so-called "San Francisco Values" the Republicans always snidely put her down for. I guess it's code for "gay", "baby-killing", "tree-hugging hippies", etc. If that's the case, thank the Goddess, it's about goddamn time we got control of the Nation's agenda. Gays need rights, babies need to be wanted and cared for, trees need to be hugged and we all have a lot of work to do.

Yes, today is long overdue not only for America's women, but for all our citizens. Today proves that even a woman, a member of a group once forbidden to vote in this country, can now lead our government. Today proves that civil rights can be won, and that the fight for equality is worth all the sacrifices made.

Today we're one step closer in the long march towards equal rights and opportunities for all our people as Nancy Pelosi takes the gavel of the House. Lead on Madame Speaker!
