    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 !!

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

    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.

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

    In my twenties, I used to stand in the grocery line thinking, “Oh, no! I’m right behind some little old lady fumbling around in her change purse!” In my seventies, I stand there behind thinking,“Oh, no! I hope there’s no one behind me in a hurry while I’m fumbling around in my change purse!” Oh now one’ s perspective changes! Or not.

    Seriously, didn’t Joanie’s and my generation say the same about older people when we getting involved in politics 40 years ago? (and the answer is “YES”) payback hurts..You might want to remind that little tart just WHO wrote Elizabeth’s speach!

    Of course, diversity in the workplace leads to mediocrity in the workplace. I always tried to get the very best people to work for me and not necessarily a person from every category the government could dream up.

    What professional would ever hire such a tactless bunch of people for their office to talk to the public? And, Joanie…you need to get a stylist, pronto. And maybe a vat of Avon’s anti-aging products for the face and neck.

    And the republicans wonder why they’re losing elections…“The Lamestream Media won’t get our message out.” No, it’s because there isn’t one, if this is all they’ve got. And it is.

    I know someone who spoke to older folks this way and with that stupid down talking ‘voice’. She herself is now older but instead of seeing how she was, she now treats young folks as if they are idiots.

    Re: The red hair vs. the brown. This is intriguing. I dug up yesterday’s Tampa Bay Times, and the young twit’s hair was blazing red, as it was in GoComics when I first looked at it yesterday. I just looked at the Monday GoComics strip again, and presto-chango, the hair was brown! In the Monday comments, @MiepR said something about the red hair early on. Then someone else told Miep that it was brown. (I don’t recall looking back at the strip again – who’d expect it to change?) So wha hoppen? Was Garry playing a little joke on us?

    Definitely an “ouch” moment. At the age of 60, I’m having to get used to the idea of young people offering to help me get up any time I am lower than chair level.

    The question “Did she take her medication this morning” is always asked before surgery, not afterward. Therefore, it is probable they were treating her like an idiot before any anesthesia was administered. Not to mention the fact that many day surgeries use milder forms that allow the patient to be fully alert within an hour.

    When you have old-people affirmative action, everyone assumes you were hired BECAUSE you’re an old person.

    Issac Asimov once penned a limerick dealing with such a situation. I cannot quote the whole piece,but I think the ending fits perfectly, “… with one blow I killed that rotten kid.”

    Joanie might be thinking of these immortal words from Maltby and Shire:

    “And these sweet young things who hire me now,These MBAs making fifty thou,*Who smile and ask what I have done,When THEY GOT THEIR JOBS THROUGH THE FIGHTS I WON!”

    .*it was the 70s

    You’re young and you’re guy; she’s old and just a woman.

    A speaker on gender issues, youthful and pretty, described being interviewed by a bank which was trying to “break” the glass ceiling that was maintaining an all-male high echelon. Every question and statement made by the bank representative was directed to the young man with her as her assistant, even when he repeatedly redirected the statement to his boss. This is the mindset that goes unrecognized in many if not most conversations in which the female is the relevant authoritty and the male an assistant.
