Congratulations to the ’07 grads who just finished the bar exam! (Or, to those who are in Cali, who will finish later this afternoon.) Congrats, Queen of Swords – you’re alive. (We’ll ignore the fact that, after it was all over, you tried to take out your mom with a Sig Sauer.)


This blog, since its inception in the summer of ’06, has been subtitled “Right wing thoughts from the left coast.” In a mere three weeks (yuck), this pachyderm will be packing up her Volvo and moving to back East for ten months. “Right wing thoughts from the right coast” lacks a certain panache. Suggestions?

  • “Still surrounded by bonehead liberals: have I left the Left Coast?” ~QoS
  • “Another can of Libertarian Whoop-A” ~Neil
  • “Right Wing Ramblings of a Right Coast Culture Warrior” ~TT
  • “Right Winger Writing from the Right Coast” ~TT
  • “The Three R’s of the Right Coast: Reasoning, Writing, and Arithmetic” ~TT


With headlines like this, you would have no idea that the Dow Jones broke the 14,000 mark for the first time in history – usually an indicator that the economy is moving along.


A vegetarian diet saves money. If we really lived in a free market economy, health insurance companies would be able to offer discounts to the grass-eaters of the world.



  1. Am I alive? I’m not sure.
    Funny story: I pass the F out at like 1 after the test, and after 2 hours am awakened to the sound of someone trying to get into my apartment–working the doorknob, slamming against the door, etc. I immediately vault out of bed and run to the foyer, screaming—WHAT THE F&&& DO YOU THINK YOU’RE DOING??? threatening to get my gun, etc. Turns out it’s my MOM, dropping off roses from my family. WHOOPS!!! I was all, oh! um…..thanks!!

    Oh well, now we know how I would react to a home invasion: zero fear, just pure unadulterated rage. Good to know. :)

    Bridge, here’s an image for you: I open the door and Glenda is scuttling away, waving and apologizing frantically for waking me up. . . “Sorry Allie, sorry! We love you! Sorry!” Glad I didn’t shoot her!

  2. As for your moniker, how about: “Still surrounded by bonehead liberals: have I left the Left Coast?”


    I can see it and I’m shaking laughing. Glenda has three alpha children and an alpha husband – surely she can manage threatened matricide! ;)

    “Law grad, after bar, shoots mother bearing roses.” Cripes, what’s next? Did you run over a nun who took too long crossing the road?

    When I visit you in 22 days, I’ll remember to NOT go straight to the door and try to let myself (and my stuffed elephant) in.

    Love the moniker.

  4. This, I shall think on…

  5. L&L – congrats on finishing!

    Re. the moniker – Bridget, all that comes to mind is something like, “Another can of Libertarian Whoop-Ass” I have a feeling you’ll want to choose one of the other suggestions. :-)

  6. I’m waiting to see what Totaltransformation comes up with.

    L&L — Congrats on finishing and that story is hilarious! I react like you do. When I think someone is trying to jack with me, I get really ticked :)

  7. Right Wing Ramblings of a Right Coast Culture Warrior

    Or perhaps

    Right Winger Writing from the Right Coast

    Or perhaps

    The Three R’s of the Right Coast: Reasoning, Writing, and Arithmetic.

    Well I didn’t say they would all be good.

  8. Looks like the creative juices are flowing :)

  9. Tammi,

    Have any suggestions? :)

  10. Let me think Bridget … how about Right on from the retard coast? Lol, just kidding!! Kind of. (Spoken from the security of the middle of Wyoming) ;)

  11. Huh… I like the “right on” idea. Virginia isn’t very crazy (after all, Planned Parenthood gave it an “F”, which makes it A-okay in my book!) – in fact, it’s not until you hit DC that the real mayhem begins.

    “Right on from wherever I happen to be at the moment”?

    “Right-wing thoughts from somewhere that is NOT Texas”?

  12. Hi Bridget,
    I thought you were going to be hanging out mostly in Mass. and with their lefty politics and all … well, VA is a different story indeed. I think Tieki Rae is considering heading south for law school when it’s time.

    I do like Right on from wherever you happen to be at the moment. :)
