Media Alert: Charmaine on MSNBC Debating Motherhood and Palin


Charmaine will be debating Kim Gandy from NOW on Palin’s speech.

Here’s what happen the last time Charmaine and Kim “shared” a microphone,


Even Rush Limbaugh noted the altercation. Back on November 5, 2005, Your Business Blogger(R) wrote about the press conference,

Please forgive the-day-in-the-life post from Your Business Blogger[R]. I was in the middle of drafting an article on the glass ceiling for women. And got a first person account instead.

Today I thought I’d give the little woman a respite from the laundry and the kids. “Go play in the Nation’s Capital,” I said to Charmaine this morning. “Have a fun lunch with the girls!”

Then I hear Rush talk about a smack down at the Supreme Court and see a photo of Charmaine in her red power suit at Rush Limbaugh EIB Extra… .

She had Kim Gandy in a half-nelson.

I have sat through a number of cantankerous board meetings. Adversarial budget negotiations. Hardball sales presentations. Terminations. Giving and getting.

But no one actually got spanked.

I thought the gathering of girls today would be a powder puff tea party of cooperation. Sweetness and light and reason and ‘Please’ and ‘Thankyou.’

I was wrong. No one fights like a woman on a mission.

I’ll have to rewrite the article.

(It is a joy to marry over your head.)

    Great job, Charmaine! You stayed positive, and finally Kim sounded so ridiculous (saying that the Republicans would ban birth control and make mothers all go home) that she lost all ethos. Folks aren’t stupid — they get it.

    Can you tell me where your organization gets its funding from? And does your group support a single political theory or party? Thanks.

    P.S. Your column about their last meeting was very funny.

    The Spartans and the Roman legionaires both wore red cloaks. The blood wouldn’t show, they were expensive and the fit well with all the grunting and pushing a phalanx and a maniple required.

    But next time try the purple suit as it signifies noblesse oblige so you are perfectly justified with hitting the hoi polloi with the sceptre or riding stick, whichever is handy. But don’t forget to address the microphone with a dulcet toned, “Halloo!”
