No shrinking violet
Playing the dirtiest game of all, Yulia Tymoshenko has made mincemeat of the judicial system in the Ukraine. Of course, she will probably go to prison for 10 years because her rival, Ukraine President, Viktor Yanukovich,just can't stand her. She's no saint (nor should she be, I mean, she's a politician after all) but I do like her cojones in calling a spade a spade when it comes to the pure act of political revenge.
While looking like a shrinking violet (and I continue to admire the hair and careful ladylike ensembles) this woman in l'age has the courage, tenacity, stick-to-it-ivenes missing in more than one politician in the last few weeks. I do like Angela Merkel but she needs to drop kick the old boys network and start telling it like it is. After all, that's what women do after a crisis, clean up the mess. Christine Lagarde - need one say more?
That's it for politics. Back to the really important stuff in the next post - like my hair.
