The Dominican Fur Coat

One of the things I bought at the Dominican supermarket is called “Russian salad.” I buy these Russian salads everywhere I go because I’m curious how other cultures see Russianness. 

The salad turned out to be a light version of what we call “herring in a fur coat” or simply “the fur coat.” It was quite good although they should have cooked the beets for at least another hour. When I make this fur coat, you crawl away from the table because it’s so hard-core. And the Dominican version is what the fur coat is when you are extremely health conscious.

            Well, what are you going to do with these losers.

            Let’s hope you’re right. I hate to be so cynical.

            Alabama doesn’t permit early voting. It may depress Republican turnout. As for people getting to the polls to vote for a Democrat?
            Voter suppression may be in effect because…Alabama. The previous governor’s mistress tried to close down DMVs in primarily black counties because 1) black voters tend to vote for Democrats, 2) voters need ID to vote in Alabama and the 3)most common ID used is the driver’s license. Alabama is a REAL ID compliant state which means you have to have proof of citizenship, your social security card and two pieces of specified mail from your address. You can’t do this online, you need to actually go to the DMV.

                Man, as a liberal, the only safe space I would demand is one free of overplayed dad-jokes. They should play tapes of conservatives being funny at those CIA black sites.

                Ah, Cliff, you have to understand the nature of some (okay, one) of your antagonistic bloggers here on Clarissa’s website. He appears to be quite jealous — not of your pronouns — but of your new avatar.

                He knows that, unlike you, he’d be laughed off this comments page if he ever presumed to post a horse’s face as his representative image.

            Hillary has recently hinted (on television with Bill Maher) that she might consider running again.

            Of course if she does, she’ll have to compete in the primary with her fellow geriatrics Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, along with all the minority candidates that the new far-left Democratic Party will want in the race!

            And yes, I enjoy messing with you! 🙂

  6. As a child I was fascinated by the ensalada Russa. I remember asking my mom where the name came from, and feeling like an idiot when she said “it is red, things are really red in Russia”. Years later I finally understood what she meant by red…
