Female veterans in the U.S. Senate #ChampionWomen

There are certain females in Congress who are sucking the oxygen out of media attention.  I call them They Who Must Not Be Named – you can guess who they are.

Cold Cream ‘n’ Roses will balance the media narrative by featuring female veterans in the U.S. Senate:

  • Martha McSally, R-AZ
  • Tammy Duckworth, D-IL
  • Joni Ernst, R-IA

I plan to expand this post by including profiles of Senators Duckworth, Ernst, and McSally.

Also in the works: Female veterans in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Good humor shown by differently abled Republican Congressmen

I love the good humor displayed by these differently abled Republican Congressmen:

So why is the media (aka the Democratic Media Industrial Complex #DMIC) spending all their time fawning over the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and the truly execrable Rashida Tlaib?

Catching up with the black female GOP candidates

This is a follow-up to the article Meet the six black female @GOP candidates for Congress.

The Derp State raised a good question.  Sadly, none of these women won.  Incumbent Rep. Mia Love lost her Congressional race by a razor-thin margin. Now she’ll be a CNN Political Commentator.

I went to Ballotpedia to find how the other women fared:

  • Jineea Butler (NY-13) lost bigtime to incumbent Adriano Espaillat (D).  NY-13 comprises Upper Manhattan and a small part of the Bronx, so it’s no surprise that a Republican lost.  And since another district that covers the Bronx voted in Sandy from Westchester aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez …
  • Aja Smith (CA-41) lost to incumbent Mark Takano 35%-65%.
  • Charlotte Bergmann (TN-09) lost to incumbent Steve Cohen (the guy who wants to get rid of the Electoral College) 20%-80%
  • Virginia Fuller (FL-05) lost to incumbent Alfred Lawson 33%-67%.
  • Liz Matory (MD-02) lost to incumbent Dutch Ruppersberger (D) 31%-66% (the remaining vote went to third-party candidates)

I am really sickened by the leftist bent of the Democratic Party.  At the same time, I’m disgusted with those Republicans who say that they vote for a candidates’ ideas, not for the race or gender of the candidates.  This sounds good, but it seems that they have no problem with the Republican Party being The Party of Old White Men ™️.  If the GOP fails to run and elect female candidates and candidates of color, it will become irrelevant.

This is rich …

GOP chair Ronna McDaniel criticizes Mitt Romney, who wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post titled “The president shapes the public character of the nation. Trump’s character falls short.”

Ronna McDaniel is Mitt Romney’s niece.

Meet the six black female @GOP candidates for Congress

Can you believe it? Only 7 days to the 2018 midterm elections.

Ebony magazine recently had a feature on 18 African-American women running for Congress:

The problem was that all 18 women were Democrats.  After a lot of outrage, Ebony changed the title of its article to Meet the 18 Black Democratic Women Running for a Seat in Congress.

While African-American Democratic female candidates for Congress outnumber African-American Republican female candidates for Congress 3-1, the six African-American Republican 🐘 female candidates for Congress deserve to be highlighted.  If Ebony won’t do it, Cold Cream ‘n’ Roses will!

While watching the last Republican National Convention, the lack of diversity among delegates became painfully obvious.  I thought that Mia Love and Nikki Haley were presented as tokens.

I hope that there will be many many more women and minorities running as Republicans.  I want to show that the Democratic Party no longer owns women and minorities.  I want to show that the Republican Party is no longer the Party of Old White Men ™️

Patriotic nails – Isadora, OPI for Merle Norman, Le Métier de Beauté – Updated for July 4

Isadora, which is from Sweden, posted this picture of patriotic nails on Facebook:

Patriotic Nail art from Sweden’s Isadora

Isadora Wonder Nail polish shades:

  • no 603 Tip White
  • no 702 Blue Jeans
  • no 653 Chelsea Red

And don’t ask me about the red hands! 🙂

Merle Norman likes to trumpet its “Made in the USA” credentials. OPI created its Americana nail set to celebrate Merle Norman’s heritage. It features red, white and blue mini OPI Nail Lacquers. The Americana nail set features:

  • Hussy – a ravishing red polish. No, it’s not named for a brazen woman who’s got her mitts on your man (and believe me, I’ve had to deal with one), it’s named for a classic car. 
  • Alpine Snow
  • Yoga-ta Get this Blue! 
  • RapiDry Top Coat

And once again, my apologies for the lousy picture quality, but it’s the best I could find. 😦

See set from Le Métier de Beauté:

If you want to support Obama’s presidential campaign, you could create a patriotic theme using the nail polish set that Richard Blanch of Le Métier de Beauté created for the Obama campaign’s Runway to Win.

Richard Blanch of Le Métier de Beauté for Runway to Win


  • Red-y To Win Red – “A delightfully deep red, a bold pop of color that makes a statement.”
  • Victory White – “A soft, clean white perfectly polished for every day wear.” 
  • Bo Blue – “A shimmering sapphire blue, a fun take on the classic navy.”
