The other day, my friend and fellow Pink Gardens resident, June, gave me another awesome thrift store find, this Hillary Nutcracker! Truth be told, before Obama received the Democratic nomination in 2008, I was a huge Hillary supporter. My late mother who died in 1999 always said that Hillary would be our first female President, and I really thought it would be awesome if her prediction came true. She and I saw Hillary speak at a rally in New Haven in 1996, and my mom had a framed photo of Hillary on her wall until the day she died. I love parody and irony, and I'm totally thrilled with this new addition to the "Collection!" I'm not taking it out of the box though, so I'll have to keep cracking my nuts the old fashioned way, lol.
