Last week Obama had dinner with some conservative reporters.  And people just about lost their shit.

I was hoping George Stefanapoidfh;alf!js on This Week would get some insight into the most COVETED dinner party invite EVER (SSG is sure her missing invitation was just an oversight and had nothing to do with the fact that she's not a conservative ... or in the media.  Bygones.) But alas, George Will doesn't kiss and tell.

Damn it.

I wonder which bow tie Mr. Will chose to wear to the event ... no doubt it was vintage.

I like the whole idea ... having dinner with a group of intelligent, rationale writers who believe in a different platform than you do.  SSG knows that we absolutely NEED a conservative party.  Eradicating the Republican party isn't the answer anymore so than getting rid of the Democratic party.  The two need each other for balance ... kind of like Donny & Marie Osmond.  One's a little bit country the other's a little bit rock and roll.  

I actually look forward to watching a more modern conservative party take shape.  Perhaps one with 100% less involvement of the church in state affairs and 100% more pragmatism.  (In fact, if it will get her a dinner invite next time, SSG has a feeling that if the party banded together fiscal conservatism with social responsibility they might just have a go at it.  You are welcome Republicans.)  

The thing that concerns SSG most about this dinner is that she didn't hear any women's names mentioned in the list of attendees.  And that's when she remembered the two loudest conservative women's voices in the media right now:

SSG prays, for all of the love that is holy, that Peggy Noonan was at that dinner.

(SSG is all for freedom of speech and varying opinions ... but she has to remind herself of that every 0.2 seconds when she hears those two up there open their mouths.) 

P.S.  Some changes will be happening around SSG over the next couple of weeks!  Confessions of a (Sometimes!) Serendipitous Girl will be getting a makeover.  You'll hear more about that soon, but you might notice some hiccups along the way with mah site.  Like losing all my links to you folks.  THAT is fun.  Stay tuned! 

P.P.S.  Your supportive, candid comments and e-mails yesterday blew my mind.  Sometimes after holding something in and being careful for so long, you've just got to lay it all out there and say "this is me" and let the chips fall where they may.  Luckily I can do that here and say ... not on a nationwide conference call at my office or to the person sitting next to me on the Max train on a random Tuesday.  My coworkers around the country, the random person on the Max and I THANK YOU.

I can't wait to see the changes, although you are completely beautiful as you are and don't need a makeover.

Sweetheart, you are so wonderfully balanced. I feel just about exactly the same way, only I'm fairly conservative. But, it's like you pointed out, if the two sides could just get their shit together and not be constantly struggling to overcome one another, I think we could get somewhere. There HAS to be both parties, or this isn't America.
My makeover is coming soon too! Isn't it exciting?! I can't wait and am looking forward to seeing what you've got in the works!

Makeover? Makeovers are fun. I like the reveal part. When's the big reveal? Huh? huh? huh?

I'm just catching up on your posts.....

I heart Sprees!! Although, they are not on my approved food list right now:)

You are an amazing person who has been through more than most of us can ever imagine. Take comfort in your wonderful friends (read: Predo & Jimmy) because they can always help us navigate the rough spots:)

Please don't judge ALL conservatives by the actions of those particular women. Some of us are MUCH deeper than that.

I love Peggy Noonan. My husband has a huge crush on her--me too a little. WE heard her speak about 10 years ago and she was smart, warm and funny. (Just like some other girl I "know.")

(I mean you)
