Loretta Sanchez is Special. Linda's Just Pregnant.

You know, you have to love California, if only because it's a repository of crazy zaniness that never gets old.

For example, Rep. Loretta Sánchez (D-Calif.) has released her latest Christmas card.

As if last year's wasn't cukoo enough.

What is it with her and that damn cat?

Of course, I got Loretta confused with her sister, Rep. Linda Sánchez (D-Calif.) who has been in the news 'cause she'll be the first Congressional singleton to pop out a kid while in office.

What was really funny though, was the outrage this seemed to spark with one Post reader who found it necessary to pen this hilarious letter to the editor:

Can You Say 'Illegitimate'?

I am outraged about Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts's Nov. 21 Reliable Source item "Oh, Baby! Big News for Sanchez."

What the heck is this world coming to? Not only are "celebrities" making news on a daily basis, but now we have a member of Congress having a baby even though she is not married.

Wake up and think before you glamorize unwed pregnancy. Is it any wonder our young people have babies while they themselves are still babies?

Rep. Linda Sánchez (D-Calif.) should be ashamed of herself. Sex is private. Having babies out of wedlock is wrong. Stop giving these people attention.

-- Lynn McDonald


Outraged! How about that! Usually people are outraged over, I don't know, people dying or babies going hungry. But this broad wants to pick a fight because a 43-year-old woman got knocked up by her boyfriend (who is really her partner, because honestly, "boyfriend" should be reserved for boys and "man friend" just sounds creepy).

Regardless, the Sanchez sisters make for endless entertainment, and hey, who doesn't appreciate that?

I actually don't think the reader's outrage is "funny" nor is her letter to the editor "hilarious." I agree with her. A lack of morals and values is exactly why this country is headed to hell in a handbasket. And quite frankly, I don't want to read about a prune getting knocked up by her "boyfriend," "partner," "lover"...take your pick.

While we don't have a problem with folks who disagree with us, we do have a problem with sexism.

So, in future, let's refrain from referring to congresswomen-- actually all women-- as prunes.

*A lack of morals and values is exactly why this country is headed to hell in a handbasket.*

And see, here I thought it was due to electing officials who are criminals that abandon the Constitution, wage unnecessary war leaving thousands killed and maimed and who authorize torture of folks who "may" be our enemies, along with general hate and intolerance for our fellow wo/man. And all this time it was pregnant middle-agers. Learn somethin new every day....
