Here we are in Dublin, Ireland, logging in to check the political news, and find this news item in my “local news” section of Google News. We voted for Tammy when she ran for Congress and were disappointed when she didn’t beat the Republican that got in.

Yes, yes, yes, if it comes to it, yes to Tammy for Senate.
