Happy 79th Birthday, Rep. Maxine Waters May all your time be reclaimed today and every day! Dear Rep. Maxine Waters, What would we do without you? In these dark times you are a beacon of hope. You are taking on what you’ve dubbed the Kremlin Klan and we are here for it. You are telling it like it is to anyone who has sense enough to listen. You’ve become, in your 79th year, a pop culture icon.
