    If that brunette was a man, Joanie would have decked him.

    Oh Sister ! You have just put your young foot in it ! If you wish to continue living in your idealistic youthful bubble, you’d best shut up. You don’t realize what a riled Joanie Caucus will do to you. She will show you what a true Gray Panther is !!

    It is that kind of down talking patronizing that really pisses me off.

    So an Intern is about to get choked, good to know.

    But it’s force fed in all the PC propaganda and those who commit it simply don’t recognise that it IS “down talking patronizing”.

    Since my Dad passed away, I help my 87-year “young” Mum through some of her “tasks”. She recently had day surgery and wasn’t permitted to drive herself home. So I dropped her off in the morning and went back to pick her up later.

    While I was there with her all the staff just “assumed” that she couldn’t answer questions for herself and addressed them to me … “Is she feeling OK ? Has she taken her medications this morning ? … etc., etc.”. I told them very quickly (and forcibly) that Mum is perfectly capable of answering for herself … and more, if they continued to p!$$ her off …

    Okay, this newbie-know-nothing has got to go. Even interns are expected to be schooled in politics. If this is Washington, D.C. that this storyline is happening in, then this assistant doesn’t seem to get that there’s ‘binders full of women’ willling to clamor for her job.
    Her ‘I-don’t-need-to-know-anyone-who’s-not-hot’ attitude is more befitting for working the velvet rope of a club.

    Oh, my, this girl is quite incompetent. First, she mistakes Joanie for the Senator’s mother (apparently unaware that her boss’ mother is dead), then she insults her for being “old.” I’m sure the Senator can find better staff than that.

    I think this is a different one. They’re taking turns swinging by, trying to be helpful. For anyone not involved in liberal politics, incredibly energetic, ambitious, eager, and sometimes hopelessly naive young volunteers and interns are the engines that make campaigns and offices work at all.

    No, it’s the same one, wearing identical duds, and if you go back to yesterday’s GoComics, she’s now got brown hair.

    Isn’t Liz Warren in her sixties?

    Wait until Joanie finds out she’s going to be a great-grandmother…
