|Texas Tribune Invites Their Classy Readers to Make Gay Jokes About a 3-year Old Picture of Governor Perry||Donna Brazile: Poster Girl for Cluelessness|
From the Texas Tribune this morning on Gov. Rick Perry’s interim Chief of Staff, Ann Bishop, returning to her previous job as Executive Director of the state’s Employees Retirement System, we get this tidbit (from Bishop’s replacement as Chief of Staff, Brandy Marty):
In a story published in The Texas Tribune and The New York Times last month, Bishop said she was “pleasantly surprised” to walk into her first staff meeting at the governor’s office and see how many of her new colleagues were female.
“The governor surrounds himself with the brightest and best,” she said at the time, “and women are obviously part of that mix.”
And this picture of Gov. Perry meeting with his senior staff:
Now, compare it to this Obama meeting with his senior advisers:
Via the Washington Free Beacon:
The White House’s Flickr account recently released a photo [the one shown above] of President Barack Obama and his top advisers. The complete absence of women in the image is another reminder that females are underrepresented in Obama’s staff.
Additionally, the president still pays his female employees significantly less than their male counterparts.
The Obama White House in 2011 paid female staffers 18 percent less than their male colleagues…
Of course, missing from that photo is Obama’s most senior and trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett — Obama’s Rasputin — the Iranian-born daughter of Communist parents.
But remember…it’s Conservatives who are waging a “war on womyn.”
