It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Governor Patterson, Do the Right Thing

madamab, over at Oooh...nuance is circulating an online petition urging Governor Patterson of New York to appoint a woman to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate when she moves into her office at Foggy Bottom to assume her role as Secretary of State.

Seems like we're thinking along the same lines madamab.  While there was much ado about Big Dawg replacing his wife in the Senate, a daft notion at best, it came as no surprise that the MSM was not even thinking about Patterson picking a woman.  There are currently only 17 women serving in the Senate, a ridiculous notion considering that more than half the United States is populated by women.

Gov. P, do the right thing and fill Senator Clinton's seat with a strong, intelligent woman with a strong record of serving the state of New York.  Madamab has put forward the name of Carolyn Maloney, who has been serving New York's 14th District since 1992.  Good call madamab!

So don't be stupid, be a smarty...sign the petition, and let Governor Patterson know that the number of Senatorial women should stay and 17...for now...and then grow higher.

I live in NY and would like to see William Jefferson Clinton as my next senator for two reasons. First, Big Dawg will fight like the dickens for middle class interests. Second, it will keep Hillary's seat safe and thus make it less likely that Obama will marginalize her in the cabinet.

If New Yorkers demand a woman replacement, we may well wind up with Caroline Kennedy which would be horrible.
