Maybe it’s the simplicity of her singular suit

resisting dismissive labels of ‘girly’ or ‘cute’.

Maybe it’s the hotness of tweedy butch

that turns her watchers’ knees to mush:

Even straight married ladies

seem to be going crazy

singing this particular pundit’s praise

saying she’s “a real role model for the gays”

But while I’m thankful for role models

who can dismantle the old twaddle

of Pat and FOX News with ease and elocution

I’d prefer a slightly wider distribution

of role-model-fodder on American TVs

besides Ellen, Wanda, and MSNBC’s

hot mixer-maven, out-token Mister Cronkite Junior;

how ’bout six or seven outspoken sister wonk-dykes to join her?
