"Together, let's break the glass ceiling to the Governor's office."

A robocall from Kathleen Falk, the evening before the primary in the Scott Walker recall. It's very gender politics:



Who enters an office through the ceiling?

Ninjas, spies, cable repairmen.

And mom, apparently.

And not a word about his union busting. LOL!

She came in through the bathroom window,
protected by a silver spoon.
But now she sucks her thumb and wonders
by the banks of her own lagoon.

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday,
Tuesday's on the phone to me.

She said she'd always been a dancer,
she worked at fifteen clubs a day,
and though she thought I knew the answer,
well, I knew what I could not say.

And so I quit the p'lice department,
and got myself a steady job.
And though she tried her best to help me,
she could steal, but she could not rob.

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday,

Batman and his wonderful toys. Art museums have offices in them and they are buildings, so...

Undun..

Why do Wisconsin Democrats hate women?

Lem said...

Althouse, the Smithsonian called.. they want their phone back.

It feels like I've told this joke before.

"Oh what a feeeelin', when we're dancin' on the ceilin'"

40 years later, they still haven't got anything else.

And this is about the Democrat primary!

Modernizing sounds like a good idea, but electronics now-a-days breaks so easily. Or worse yet, it's all glossy and picks up scratches. Then it looks like junk. Best to stick with the older models. They work, and they likely will until Congress passes a law making them illegal.

I believe when you enter by breaking a ceiling you would be coming in through the floor.

Lem said...

"Together, let's break the glass ceiling..."

And to the Madisonians with solar panels.. fuck you too.

Maguro said...

Enough about glass ceilings - what kind of vibrator does Falk use?

Leora: I believe when you enter by breaking a ceiling you would be coming in through the floor.

If the ceiling you break is the floor of the room you are trying to enter, there wont be any floor to stand on. Plus, shards of broken glass are going to rain down on you, not to mention furniture.

That doesn't make any sense!

Who enters through the ceiling? Obvious answer to this situation is a thief.

rhhardin said...

She's a moron.

You enter the governor's office through the floor.

It's the ceiling of the office below.

Bob Ellison said...

Interesting speech pattern. Hishtory, Wishconshin, etc. Break that glash sheeling!

David said...

In movies, characters usually break glass ceilings on the way down, while falling from a considerable altitude. Falk would seem to fit this pattern, except where is she falling from?

Henry said...

I'm just waiting for the "Coffee, Tea or Me!!!!" campaign ad.

Is there any cliche Ms. Falk can't get backwards?

EMD said...

Scott M. beat me to the punch.

Notice there's no Batwoman. Only Batgirl.

The War on Comic Book Women continues!

Carl Vero said...

It’s a gender-specific affliction
A terrible liberal addiction:
They love hoods
Never look above hoods
Travel-hood, mother-hood, union-hood, sister-hood
Jet-lag, time-lag, pay-lag, lay-lag
NAG, NAG, NAG, NAG

Mr. Forward said...

"Who enters an office through the ceiling?"

People who put rugs over the hole in the floor.
Happy now?

traditionalguy said...

The real glass ceiling is for being the head Union Thug. The women are excluded from Union Presidency as if they are not capable of threatening extreme violence. That is so old fashioned.

bagoh20 said...

Trust me, if women were above the glass ceiling, men would fighting to get under it, so they could look up.

burglers

AJ Lynch said...

Will they use some of their fabulous electronics to break through? [do I detect a theme of the day?]

Curious George said...

Well, in another ten hours it will be "that'sh all folksh.

section9 said...

All fabulous electronics are made by Chinese wage slaves.

Some Democrat will win the Primary, he'll vault ahead temporarily, and it will be misery around here for awhile, then Walker will go back into the lead.

I don't know the origins of the phrase about glass ceiling but it makes sense to think of it as 'standing and standing tall' among your peers and equals.

Matthew Sablan said...

There is a Batwoman.

Matthew Sablan said...

Well was... except in the literary sense that books are in the eternal present...

Alex said...

Where is leslyn/Allie/garage to spin this?

You were right the first time, Batwoman was brought back during the 52 Storyline from several years ago and is still present in the current continuity of DC Comics and even has her own title.

I once had a Nazi girlfriend. She was married and treated her husband like dirt. She picked me up in a bar. I lived next door to a TV model who made a lot of commercials for local department stores. She was black. I had once helped her get back in her house house when she had locked herself out. I pushed her fanny through a window. I told my girlfriend how I enjoyed feeling her fanny.

She said, “ Hitler was right! Kill them all!" Her name was Helga.

She used to bite me during sex and leave big bruises.
