I'm breaking that out of the context of my much longer post, below, because it's the most blatant and absurd gender politics I've ever seen. I want it out there where everyone can see it.
I'm thinking: motherhood... apple pie... Will she bake us an apple pie?

Feel free to steal my ad idea, Executive Falk.
ADDED: Meade says: "Anxious? Anxious to be that mom?" Me: "Who wants an anxious mom?"
By the way, is this the "Age of Anxiety"?
It’s hard to believe that anyone but scholars of modern literature or paid critics have read W.H. Auden’s dramatic poem “The Age of Anxiety” all the way through, even though it won a Pulitzer Prize in 1948, the year after it was published. It is a difficult work — allusive, allegorical, at times surreal. But more to the point, it’s boring. The characters meet, drink, talk and walk around; then they drink, talk and walk around some more. They do this for 138 pages; then they go home.Digression: Are they drunk yet at the Mifflin Street Party? It's 10 a.m.
ADDED: From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report:
The winner will take on Walker, and the Democratic Party has scheduled a rally for Wednesday on the Capitol steps to unite Democrats and build momentum for the recall election....Putting the mom in momentum.
Falk said moms are the ones who bring fighting families together and she would be like a mom for the state.
AND: The Miffliners were drunk and tweeting it by 9 a.m.
