But perusing Amazon Prime tonight, I found the pilot of her show, "Girls." The first scene is actually a moderately amusing lampoon of the spoiled, entitled, perpetual victim mentality that Dunham has come to represent. Watch the brief clip here.
When Kat Ragot, 42, accepts her diploma for a bachelor of arts degree Saturday from the University of Maine at Machias, she will finish a journey that began 25 years ago and left her nearly $40,000 in debt.
While fellow classmates who graduated from her first college, Carnegie Mellon University, went on to enjoy successful careers, Ragot dropped out, then struggled to make ends meet while working a series of low-paying jobs and raising two children on her own. She defaulted on her student loans, but later restored her credit so she could borrow more money and return to school.
She needs that college degree, she says, so she can get a better-paying job and climb out of the financial hole she has fallen into.

New Democratic Party = Canada's Democrats
Long story short, Canada's RINOs have been in charge of Canada's Texas for ages. They got fat and happy and spent like drunken sailors during the oil boom years. Then when the price of oil crashed last year meaning a huge hit to the state budget, they proposed a budget that both raised taxes and still ran a massive deficit.
So the voters of Canada's Texas were disgusted with Canada's RINOs, and threw them out of office yesterday. Canada's RINOs lost so many seats that they are no longer even the official opposition, that role being taken by Canada's resurgent Tea Party.
