God Speed Geraldine Ferraro

Preview for Sunday 032711

Hey folks,

Happy Sunday to you. Welcome to the Big Sunday Edition of the OPNTalk Blog. You know who this is. You know where to find me. Glad you checked in today.

Coming right up?

Before we get to all that. I just want to take a second and say God Speed to Geraldine Ferraro. May her family have the peace and comfort they need in this time.

I like Geraldine Ferraro. She really made quite the name for herself as a District Attorney Prosecuting cases that involved Rape, Child Abuse and Domestic Violence, before running for Congress. She won U.S. House of Representatives from New York's 9th Congressional District in Queens in 1978 with 53 percent of the Votes in a THREE Way race. She appealed to everyone at the time. Democrats because she was one, Republicans because she called herself a "small c Conservative." Which means she was a SANE Democrat. {Smile} She even appealed to Minorities because of her Italian Heritage.

Of course, along with all that, she also made history in 1984 in the Presidential Primary Season, becoming the first Woman VP Candidate with Walter Mondale. She was strong, funny, and serious. She was the Left's version of Sarah Palin. Yet, of course, they LOVED her.

Again, may you rest in peace Geraldine. You WILL be missed.

Be right back.
