I grew up in a rough section of Knoxville, TN. Fights were not uncommon at my schools, especially after about the 7th grade when all us boys were trying to establish where we fit into the pecking order.
However, the REAL spectacle was when two girls started duking it out — talk about the fur flying — shrieking, screaming, very “unladylike” language, hair-pulling, face-scratching — we guys just punched at each other with our fists — the girls went for blood.
I was reminded of those days when I saw this WashPost article today — seems as though the McDonnell daughters have launched on their beloved Mother.
Two children of former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell say his stunning downfall and conviction on public corruption charges can largely be attributed to the corrosive effects of just one person: Their mother.
Jeanine McDonnell Zubowsky and Cailin Young wrote in blunt – and at times scathing – letters to a federal judge that it was former first lady Maureen McDonnell’s materialism and mental-health issues that derailed the rising political career of her husband. The letters of support for Robert McDonnell were part of a trove of 440 submitted by his attorneys, who are seeking leniency at his Jan. 6 sentencing in Richmond.
You guess they’ll come off the Christmas card list?
