Gwen Margolis resigned from running again because of the flap over what she said to a Sunny Isles Democratic group. I reported on this yesterday. As people age the words they carefully guarded sometimes pop out of their mouth, their filter becomes impaired.
I know, it is happened to me.
I mentioned not wanting to see so many kitten pictures/videos on Facebook. Well, I think that was not the right thing to say and had to accept I was coughing up hairballs. My friends who worship seeing those kitten photos, because they make them smile, got mad at me.
I also told a young mother that the pose of her baby in the pictures made the baby look like a rat. That was, again, not the right thing to say, especially when in retrospect the pose made it look more like a baby piglet. In my defense, it was the POSE I objected to. But, I will never, ever do that again.
Helen Thomas resigned as the most respected member of the White House press corps (like Gwen Margolis resigned) after she said to Rabbi David Nesenoff (Wiki):
When asked for comments on Israel, she replied: "Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine." and "Remember, these people are occupied and it's their land. It's not German, it's not Poland..." When asked where Israeli Jews should go, she replied they could "go home" to Poland or Germany or "America and everywhere else. Why push people out of there who have lived there for centuries?"Gwen Margolis was dismissing those running against her as lightweights, problem is: She did it in the public eye instead of in her campaign headquarters. I suppose she was just repeating what was said to her by a campaign staffer. It is my guess Gwen Margolis is tired of kitten pictures on Facebook too, but she has the sense not to say it.
