I have been a fan of yours since I was a kid. You were one of the only women on TV when I was growing up that really told it like it is. It was totally awesome, and the older I get, the more I appreciate it.
I am writing because I live in Philadelphia, and we have an important election coming up in a couple of weeks.
Pennsylvanians are pretty normal people. But unfortunately for us we have this totally right wing Senator, Rick Santorum, and this year he wrote a book in which he basically says women should stay home with the kids and not work outside of the house.
I shit you not. It’s called “It Takes a Family.”
I don’t think that most people in our city don’t know that our Senator said that women shouldn’t work, that they should stay at home with the kids. I think a lot of people would find this totally awful. I mean, yeah, we’d all like to be rich enough so that no one should ever have to work. ..I don’t know why people think this is acceptable, to say something like that!?!?!
Anyways….my friends Jen and Ray are running a campaign called Philadelphians Against Santorum. Is there any way you can help them?
In an ideal world, I’d love to have your voice on every answering machine in the city, saying, you should be pissed off, your senator wants to keep you barefoot and preggers. All you have to do is record it.
Or if there’s something else you could do? Think about it, and let me know.
