NRSC: Why aren’t Democratic Senators practicing what they preach on Equal Pay?

Yeah, I know.  Fine: replace ‘NRSC’ with ‘Moe Lane’ and pretend that I asked the original question.  Because I’d like to know the answer, too:

The NRSC pulled the official payroll records for Democrat Senator offices and calculated the average pay for men and women for the most recent 6 month period available. Here’s what we found:

· Mark Udall pays women 91 cents for every dollar that a man makes.
· Mary Landrieu pays women 88 cents for every dollar that a man makes.
· Mark Begich pays women 82 cents for every dollar that a man makes.
· Mark Warner pays women 75 cents for every dollar that a man makes.
· Gary Peters pays women 67 cents for every dollar that a man makes.

On average, these five Democrats on the ballot in battleground states pay women in their office 80 cents for every dollar made by a male employee.



Why did Mother Jones make their interns (now ‘fellows’) sign up for food stamps?

As alleged here?

One former MJ intern who spoke to me on the condition of anonymity told me they “slept on an air mattress for six months while I worked there because I couldn’t afford a real one.” Another former intern said, “During our first meeting with HR at Mother Jones, we were advised to sign up for food stamps.”

…Simple.  Because Mother Jones could; and because everybody knows that professional progressive corporations like Mother Jones don’t really believe in all that half-baked don’t-call-it-socialism* nonsense that they peddle.  That junk’s for the rubes. The entire point of starting up one of these Lefty media corporations is to be at the top and draw a sweet salary from yelling about the Man. (more…)


Tweet of the Day, @OFA Realizes Just How Badly They Messed Up edition.

You gotta be KIDDING me:

Bad enough that they said it – and, by the way? That wasn’t much of a rally there, kids – worse that they thought that they could memory-hole it. Dudes: if that happens to you again, do what the folks last weekend asked the guy with the Confederate flag to do. Tell the idiot to put the stupidity artifact away.

Or not. Not my problem, either way.
