Three quotes of the day, in fact.
I felt like a piece of meat.
…and former WH communications director Anita Dunn, on what it was like to work for the White House*…
This place would be in court for a hostile workplace… because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.
…and an unnamed WH ‘high-ranking female official,’ on what it is like to work for the White House:
The president has a real woman problem… The idea of the boys’ club being just Larry and Rahm isn’t really fair. He [Obama] was just as responsible himself.
As I said: I told you so. I told people back in 2008 that then-Senator Obama didn’t like to hire women; didn’t like to promote women; and definitely didn’t like to pay women more than 82 cents to the male-equivalent dollar. And, now that this book by admittedly-a-pernicious-lying-deceitful-untrustworthy-hack Ron Suskind** is out, I hope to be able to watch some good old-fashioned Blue-on-Blue over this. God knows it’s a better outcome than the Red-on-Red that we almost had this week instead***.
*Since retracted. Although I’ll call it ‘retracted.’
**I cannot wait to hear all of those people who swore up and down at the time that ol’ Ron was a noble truth-teller who ZOMG proved that Bush Lied About The WMDs go after him now. I cannot wait. I may make popcorn****.
***The gun sort of exploded in a certain person’s hand, instead. Metaphorically, you understand.
****By the way: accurate quotes in 2011 or not, Senator Barry in 2008 under-hired, under-promoted, and underpaid his female staffers. Thanks for letting me bring that back up, Ron! Now go crawl back under your rock.
