5. Please Do Hide Your Bushel

Today we discuss the difference between “political” and “basic human decency” (Hint: it depends on whether you’re being an a-hole). When it comes to employment, it’s all who you know, and then over here you have racism / the hopeless escalator from privilege to privilege. We recall ye internet of olde, with its blood-dripping anti-abortion geocities cites and its clipart- laden Erin Gray tripod fan sites, and ponder the mystery of what has happened to fashion in Republicanism. Ahh, the 80’s, an era when more was better – whether wealth, power, or white women’s perms. Turns out that none of us knows sh*t but all of us together knows something, and beaver tails continue to be funny. Pre-emptive corrections/errata: a photo of Kim Gordon vs. Dr. Kelly Gordon has been posted on our show page (apologies to Kelly for the memory lapse but in fairness, both of you kick @ss) Bad news: the U.S. voting system has become way too complicated and Canada’s idea of curb appeal makes me wish I was in Bird Box. The good news: voter mobilization, early childhood education and babies named Phyllis give us life. Please do hide your bushel, but also send us mail at wearebothpretty@therippeysisters.com

Things we Referenced:

PS We do not fact check our opinions and make tons of mistakes, although we hate admitting when we’re wrong… please check in with Professor Dr. Google before making any decisions or placing any bets based on something we’ve said.

In fairness, we are fans of both of these women
