Quote of the Day: Jimmy Kimmel Said What? The Absurd Take Your Daughter to Work Day

By Debbie Schlussel

This weekend, the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner takes place and ABC late night host and comedian, Jimmy Kimmel, has been chosen as the host who is supposed to roast President Obama (and other politicians).  Even though Kimmel’s a liberal, he gives it to both sides, and I hope he does at this event, just like he did with “Take Your Kids to Work Day,” yesterday.  As you may know, this silly event originally began as militant feminist baloney and was “Take Your Daughters to Work Day.”  Then, everyone was included in the stupidity.  I agree with Jimmy Kimmel’s initial take:

Check it out . . .


Today was the 20th annual “Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day.” Or as it’s known in China: Thursday.

Let’s hope he’s as funny and spot on at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner and doesn’t go soft on Barack Obama.

Strange–last week’s episode of “30 Rock” referred to “Take Your Daughter to Work” as sexist. A feminist idea becomes considered “sexist”?

    Feminism is sexist by definition

Hmmm, more properly, but less funny, while children are going with their parents to work on Take your children to work day, Chinese students are going to school to learn math, English, biology, chemistry, and physics.

We are sooo f—king dumb!

“Let’s hope he’s as funny and spot on at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner and doesn’t go soft on Barack Obama.”

I don’t see much reason for hope. Kimmel this week said he found it hard to go after Obama because, aside from his ears, he’s too “cool”. He goes after conservatives. He goes after Republican candidates for every foible. He’ll go after those *around* Obama (Biden is a choice target). But Obama himself? Like Leno and Letterman, Kimmel treats Obama as generally “off limits”. My guess is most of their writers are liberals.

Maybe if they put Craig Ferguson as MC it would be different. He’s an immigrant with an immigrant’s brashness. And when goes off on a riff, there’s no telling where he’ll end up.

Kimmel will be a big pussy. He knows which side his bread is buttered on in Hollywood, so he will be the complete marshmallow.

On another note, I am urging everyone to promote Debbie’s column on their Facebook page. We want to increase Debbie’s viewers by at least ten fold. Debbie has given us so much. Let’s give back to her, and educate America at the same time.

    “On another note, I am urging everyone to promote Debbie’s column on their Facebook page.”

    Jonathan, since I’m currently on facebook and also follow’s DS, nearly half of my friends (I have about 41 friends on FB, and 12 of the 41 friends I have on facebook are DS fans) on facebook are pro-Debbie Schlussel fans/supporters. And other times, a few of my friends on facebook share’s Debbie’s column on their wall-page, so no need to worry dude, her word and information is getting out there.

I was calling it “Bring Your Little Bastard to Work Day”. In more polite company it was “Bring a Little Xerox Copy of Yourself to Work Day”. Peeps were giving me a wide berth yesterday. Our secretary put out a huge fruit platter so the kids could have healthy snacks. I saw one guy buying his daughter breakfast from a vending machine. Another fellow bought his kid lunch at the roach coach. The secretary told me to help myself to the fruit because none of the kids wanted any of it, they wanted candy.

    LOL Richard, don’t tell that to Michelle Antoinette Obama-Putin!

I recall that one year, Chrysler refused to observe the day following Ms Foundation’s refusal to allow them to open it up to both sons and daughters. Ms Foundation wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to discriminate, while Chrysler didn’t want to.

Forget it. Kimmell’s been fairly Left since the first show in ’03,and been moving further and further that way ever since.And that includes slamming the Right ,far,far worse than he ever did the Left.The fact that race-baiting,PHONY reverend Fat Albert,has been a guest SEVERAL TIMES,says how he’s gonna treat Boybama.

If the economy gets any worse, they’re gonna have to start a ‘Take-your-daughter-to-the-unemployment-office’ Day.

Shabbat Shalom Debbie. When I was a young A1 in high school they decided we should take the day off for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and in exchange we had to go to school on Veteran’s Day which had previously been a holiday. My economics teacher Mr. D was a Korean war veteran and he was pissed but nobody else said much. BTW Mr. D was a fan of A1 as we both enjoyed capitalism. Also I turned in an anti-Semitic Muslim kid in the class who was cheating our stock picking project by finding out miday prices and buying the top gainers. This was before the Internet. Mr. Davis humiliated the kid in class and even asked him if that was part of his religion (correct answer: yes). Anyway they should trade in this take your schleppy kid to your schleppy job holiday in exchange for a “Spank your kid” day.
