I want to be Judge Jeanine Pirro when I grow up.
This is one feisty, smart gal, not afraid to say put it on the line and say what she thinks--and what she thinks is pretty darned intelligent. The above video clip in particular, I believe, is one of the smartest, most common sense things I have ever heard ANYONE say about anything.
Before she became host of one of the best TV news shows around ("Justice with Judge Jeanine, Saturdays at 9:00 EST on Fox News Channel, which I never miss), she was an assistant district attorney, district attorney and judge, all in Westchester County, New York.
She also was a candidate at one time for New York Attorney General. Too bad New York is a state that can't get past "R" or "D" at the ballot box; they missed a real opportunity by not voting this woman into office.
She also hosted another prime time talk show for a number of years for which she won an Emmy. Add in the fact that she endured a similar marriage situation to my own and I am afraid she's got me hook, line, and sinker. Plus, she appears to be so classy, intelligent, elegant and beautiful--which is so hard to find that combination in this world.
The "Opening Statement" on each Judge Jeanine show is so damned powerful, factual, and correct--I don't know how this woman ever lost a case (if she did). I hope that if and when I am ever challenged to stand up for my beliefs, I can toe the line and lay it all out like she does. What an inspiration!
