Our best youngest kid and our best oldest President

Best part of the day: calling our youngest for his birthday.

Next best part of the day: watching President Biden making the speech of my lifetime. Quick on his feet, ad-libbing perfect comebacks to hecklers, making Lindsey Graham laugh so hard his moussed hair shook like quills on an ambling porcupine.

Justice Alito had written in Dobbs that “women are not without electoral or political power.”

Biden told the Justices, and all of us, “With all due respect, Justices, women are not without electoral or political power. You’re about to realize just how much.”

I loved his recognition of the woman who had marched on the Edmund Pettus Bridge 50 years ago today as he called out for the John Lewis Voting Rights Act to be passed.

He was on fire!

He thanked Republican Senator Jim Lankford for his work on the bipartisan border bill that the Republicans had then tossed aside after Trump told them not to fix it before the election. Lankford’s un-microphoned mouth in response, as he nodded affirmation: “It’s true.”

The convicted fraudster rapist mobster criminal who stated that he’ll be a dictator on day one or the wise, loving, empathetic, grandfather figure who knows his way around the world stage and knows how to get people to do the right thing and to see the long game.

Hey, America: you’ve got this. You’ve totally got this.

Yes! Yes! Yes! I listened to the beginning live as I drove to my quilt guild meeting, then watched the rest later. May all voters see the wise man with the vision and compassion that we need. And happy birthday to your son!
