In Desperate in DC: Pot, Chris Christie, and Rob Ford, I interview the two women who wrote the e-book (soon to be out in paperback) Desperate in DC, Crystal Walker and Phoebe Thompson. They speak of many topics in this humorous novel, which is sure to be appealing to both female and male readers who enjoy controversial subjects dealt with in an amusing and light-hearted fashion.
With unique insights into the Beltway and U.S. politics, the two women explore in Desperate in DC the ins and outs of the world of political power brokers, and also the lives of D.C. moms.
Desperate in DC is a hilarious blog-book creation. Authors Crystal Walker and Phoebe Thompson, two Washington, DC moms themselves, wrestle in very different ways with the issues of motherhood, money and marriage. The ladies gleefully skewer the privileged and powerful in the nation’s capital, while simultaneously tackling their own life challenges.
Crystal and Phoebe have appeared on fox New, and they expressed their differing viewpoints on the legalization of pot. I discuss in the interview that follows these differences with the two authors and humorists. Though Crystal often leans more towards a Democratic, liberal, view when it comes to certain topics, and Phoebe is somewhat more conservative and often Republican in her outlook on the issues of today, the pair have maintained a close friendship for over 20 years.
Is pot harmless, or is it a gateway drug, one that is potentially more dangerous than alcohol and cigarettes? While both Crystal and Phoebe agree that marijuana should be kept out of the hands of minors, Phoebe leans more towards it being illegal for everyone, while Crystal sees some medical benefits to it, and compares it to alcohol and cigarettes , adding that no one’s — at least, yet — has died from pot.
Among other topics Crystal and Phoebe discussed with me were their opinions as to New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie’s chances to win if he decides to run for the presidency, and Rob Ford’s colorful escapades.
