Bedwetter alert

You can't make this up.  A woman complains in the Washington ____ that the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency ruined her chances at a decent love life:

In August, I went on six dates in one week. I had decided that I was ready to look for a partner. Enough of this dating unavailable men a half-decade younger than me. They’d never seriously consider a relationship with me, my two children and our needy dog. No. I wanted to find an equal. A man who wouldn’t feel the need to step in and rescue me. I didn’t need rescuing.

But I knew deep down that was only partially true. I often felt the sort of loneliness that settled in my stomach, starting from a chaotic afternoon with my children, lasting well into the night when I pulled covers tight around my chin.

I’ve been on my own with my kids for most of the past decade. I have no idea what a supportive partner would even look like in my house. I imagined it as some sort of potluck: We’d both bring the things we have to offer and place them on the table. My ability to multitask and keep everyone’s schedules on track would sit next to his ability to fix cars, cook or read books in silly voices. Then we’d feast.

Of the six first dates I had in August, two men seemed promising. One of them met me at a brewery. We chatted happily through two beers. Finally I was out of a job interview mode I’d fallen into while sitting across from strangers. I relaxed. I laughed. And it wasn’t the laugh I did just because. It was real.

We dated for a few weeks before he admitted he wasn’t ready for something serious. Two days later, the other of those good dates called me out of the blue. We talked for a while, and I asked him to dinner. Things were falling into place. A feast was laid out on the table, and it looked delicious.  But two weeks later, the election happened. Once it was clear that Donald Trump would be president instead of Hillary Clinton, I felt sick to my stomach. I wanted to gather my children in bed with me and cling to them like we would if thunder and lightning were raging outside, with winds high enough that they power might go out. The world felt that precarious to me....

I’ve lost the desire to attempt the courtship phase. The future is uncertain. I am not the optimistic person I was on the morning of Nov. 8, wearing a T-shirt with “Nasty Woman” written inside a red heart. It makes me want to cry thinking of that. Of seeing my oldest in the shirt I bought her in Washington, D.C., that says “Future President.”

There is no room for dating in this place of grief. Dating means hope. I’ve lost that hope in seeing the words “President-elect Trump.” Rest of article
What a pitiful person.  No candidate is worth that kind of self-inflicted misery.

The high theater of the last month has been more than fruitful. Just let them keep doing it.

She has a hell of a lot more to worry about than her love life in the next 4 years. I wonder if the Vanity Tour will last that long.

10-15% of the population suffers from mental illness.
Finding one of those unfortunate people and holding them up as an example of liberalism or conservatism or a supporter of any candidate or any cause or any religion is not difficult.
You could have posted about the dangerous Pizzagate gunman and Trump's campaign staffer who also believed in Pizzagate.
Crazy thought patterns are crazy thought patterns.
Some would suggest that those who tweet about conspiracies that don't exist and for which there is no evidence and those who defend those tweets with convoluted excuses aren't operating in the world of reality either.

My guess is that this woman wouldn't have much of a love life under any circumstance, she probably drove each of those men away with her political blather and discussion of all of the conjured injustices foisted upon her. This is the problem with identity politics and the idea that the only acceptable solution is the one you espouse. Time to grow up and realize that you're not always right about everything and simply complaining and attacking those who don't see things your way won't make you look any smarter or actually solve any problem, no matter how small.

Same sort of absurd self-centered balderdash we're treated to by the stale Jackson Fake Press.

I agree, 6:38 a.m. People have lost respect for a differing opinion. If you have a different opinion, then you are evil and corrupt (and should be shot). I did not grow up this way. If you had a different opinion, you acknowledged it and moved on. Sometimes, I learned something from the differing opinion. But to hate someone for a diverse opinion shows intolerance.

What a shame. Sounds like a real catch. She should move to Reunion.

O liberals...This is rich. She is unsure of the uncertainty. On the other end of the spectrum, have you seen the ones who were uncertain of the last 8 years? Markets exploding. We're talking all time highs. I know my business has been booming with sales since the day he took office. Liberals preach tolerance and acceptance, but only if it fits their agenda. They are all proving what got Trump elected.

Obama did a fantastic job encouraging the American populace to arm itself.

Looks like JT has infiltrated your blog Kingfish, or is it just a simpleton who doesn't want to entertain opposing views.

8:24, not everyone did so well. Many people went out of business. You are fortunate. Now, the lady will raise those little boys to be bigger adult little boys and perpetuate her idiocracy.

My how the liberals are melting. You get a president who has a backbone instead of one (Obama) who apologizes to the world. It's time we stop clearing to these other countries, stop immigration and keep our money here.

She doesn't need a partner she needs a psychiatrist. Seriously! If the election has impacted you in such a way that you can no longer face the world and must huddle in a corner with your kids then you have issues that need to be addressed. I can only imagine how lucky her date was to find out he dodged a bullet on this one.

Who won the election had nothing to do with this woman's problem with men. Sounds like she wasn't having much success long before the election. No she has something to blame it on. Instead of looking for the real reason men could not stand to be around her she found something completely unrelated to blame it on.
It happens quite a bit.

I agree with 6:22 AM. There is a certain percent of crazies out and about in the world. There are a certain percent of people who will blame their failures on other people or things. I for one take full responsibilities for my failures & try to learn from them. Trump will be no more or less a better or worse President than all the other 45.
With all this social media about we really see the weakest link in the chain in our society. I watch a video of a women kicking her 10 year old child out of the house for voting for Trump. This was on the kingfish blog. How sick is this. Any have a very Merry Christmas, if you believe in that stuff.

She sounds like 2 many women i have known in my single days. She has a 2's problem, 2 kids by 2 different men 2 many bills an 2 many problem's

Wow and she's been "without a partner" for a decade??? One could only wonder why that is!!

6:14 Guess Obama's taxpayer funded vanity tour ("Farewell" tour) is a-ok! And the tax payer funded vanity tour he took to shill for Hillary was swell! And the millions he sent to Iran? Nothing to do with Boeing, just an Early Christmas gift or a late bribe or something! NBD! And the 65k hotdog parties funded by taxpayers?? It's his privilege!

If Trump wants to run 50 laps around the White House holding a flag that says "I won! deal with it!," he has every right to. Let me know when he sends you a bill to pay for it, like I get every year in January from the IRS.

@8:24. Trump has not taken office yet...

Election does NOT equal inauguration. Has the Electoral College even met yet?

Yeah, these unverified personal anecdotes prove everything.

Anonymous said...

Yep I agree folks who tune in to Super Talk are here in force.These guys will never admit it when Trump makes a mistake, they will just more the goalpost.Old Bob Dole just played him for a fool with Tiwan. Most of the folks he's nominating haven't got a clue about the jobs they are going to asked to do. Is it because those who are actually qualified have refused to work for him, for fear that their reputation will be ruined.I can't wait to read the book, he can't use non disclosure clauses anymore and I am pretty sure the left has infiltrated his staff. It wasn't hard, all they did was give him a compliment.

I can't believe Mr.Trump is taking advice from President Obama. So much for draining the Swamp

On the first leg of his Vanity Tour in Indiana he said 1100 jobs were being saved. Actually the state is going to pay a $7 million bribe for 800 jobs. Once United Technologies get their defense contracts these saved jobs will evaporate too. They are still building that plant in Mexico. Is he being honest? I think not JT.

Anonymous said...

What does she look like?

Anonymous said...

This isn't the Kemper power plant, so stop fantasizing. That "bribe" is called a tax rebate. How much do you think it would cost taxpayers to pay unemployment for 900-1100 workers? Estimates are between 6-7 million dollars.

Yall the same people screaming "WALMART IS MOVING TO MEXICO TRUMP IS A LIAR" when the reality is that if every walmart in the United States moved to Mexico it would be great because they are the biggest welfare queen in existence and DESTROY small businesses and communities! They are the biggest employer in this state actually so I wonder why we are so poor LOL. Unfortunately republican bed-wetters, it won't ever happen even if Wal-mart builds 1000 stores in Mexico. But they will employ Mexican workers who will hopefully be inspired to stay in Mexico. #makemexicogreatagain

I have spoken to many people from different countries about Trump's policies - the countries most afraid of Trump's policies seem to be Canada, China, and Yucatan for some reason. Can't wait to overhaul NAFTA and BUILD THE WALL

1:28, it may not be very funny if the electoral college decided to do something different than what it is supposed to do. You think the democrats are acting crazy marching in the street, looting, and burning? Just try putting Hillary in office. The Tea Party will seem like a church social.

Anonymous said...

1:45...can you name some employees in the Obama regime who had a clue what job they were being put in? Start with Timothy Geitner and move on down those winding halls.

J.T. Is no simpleton. SuperTalk is a highly rated Station with many listeners who follow the advice closely. He is a highly educated conservative gentleman with well thought out ideas. If my boys grow up to follow his example I will be happy. JT is where it's at!!!

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
