Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez was at the DNC this week. Since Hillary Clinton suspended the roll call vote, Congresswoman Sanchez did not have an opportunity to make a big stink in casting her vote for Senator Clinton like she had expressed to the media earlier this month, but she did ham it up for the TMZ crew that was out on the streets outside of the convention. Check out this link, and tell me why she would bop her head about and pull a “Jessica Simpson” for the camera.
Oddly enough, Congresswoman Sanchez has a book coming out next week co-authored with her sister Linda, where she discusses the challenges of being Latina in the old boys network called Congress. If Loretta Sanchez feels that she is marginalized by her male colleagues, then why does she insist on putting herself in positions like this where she looks stoned or drunk? Is she not capable of controlling her image a little better? Then again, this is a woman who is more known for her Christmas cards than for her advocacy. Her sister Linda even criticized women who will use their sexuality to advance themselves in Congress in their book. Pot, kettle, anyone?
Loretta, if you or your staff are reading this, please, please, please go pick up a copy of Ariel Levy’s Female Chauvinist Pigs, and read it cover to cover!
