Separated At Birth – Selma Bouvier/Debbie Wasserman-Schultz

Selma Bouvier:  Selma Bouvier is the raspy-voiced character on the long-running Simpsons animated television series.  Selma suffered and unfortunate bottle rocket accident and lost both her sense of taste and smell.  Selma’s favorite film actor was reportedly Troy McClure, to whom she was briefly married before discovering it was just a publicity stunt by McClure.  She was willing to live a sham for a while, but broke it off when she realized she couldn’t bring a child into a loveless marriage.  Selma inherited her deceased aunt’s iguana, Jub-Jub, instead of her mother, Jacqueline, due to Jacqueline’s apparent dislike of Jub-Jub.  Unlike her sister, Patty, Selma has shown brief moments of sympathy for Homer, primarily due to his unwavering loyalty to his family.  However, these instances are still very few and far between.  The Simpson’s creators fortunately only use her character infrequently so she doesn’t get on our nerves.  BTW what’s up with the hair?

Update 2 – Liberal Alters – Unions

It’s been a whole day since I updated the Union Liberal Alter, but the events in Wisconsin scream for comment.  First off a little recent history.  In 2008/2009 we were repeatedly told that “elections have consequences” and that Democrats won and they could rule as they pleased.  It turns out that the electorate was not very pleased and in 2010 we had more of those election consequences only this time the Republicans swept.  The Republican sweep in the U.S. House was the primary focus of most news reports, but perhaps more importantly was the Republican sweep in the states.  The Republicans now have 29 governorships and have “more seats in the state legislatures than they have had since 1928” and they are itching for real change.
