Today is a pretty dark day. I mean, when your incoming president plagiarizes a comic book supervillain in his inauguration speech, it's tough not to feel like the apocalypse is at hand. Writer Ann Friedman, like so many of us, was feeling a bit bummed by today's historic transfer of power when she boarded her plane to Washington, D.C. this afternoon — en route to tomorrow's Women's March. But she quickly realized she was far from alone.
Because if you thought a bunch of political women marching in support of their inalienable human rights was inspiring, you've clearly never been part of a bunch of political woman flying through the air in a contained vessel with bonus access to alcohol in support of their inalienable human rights.
Ever the conscientious tweeter, Friedman did acknowledge that her particular plane of nasty women was disappointingly white — as is, by the way, the majority of the Women's March's celebrity lineup. But the March organizers have so far done a reasonable job of addressing their own mistakes, so we hope the event itself will have a diverse turnout. Friedman hopes so, too.
Until then, at least we've now witnessed a girl-power live-tweet for the record books. Stay nasty, ladies.
