Today’s the big #EqualPayDay2014 blitz, and the White House is trying its damnedest to make it look like the Obama administration is committed to “fairness” for the fairer sex:

Bless her heart.

She definitely didn’t plan on getting magnificently pwned by Ed Henry:

Bra-vo, sir! 

https://twitter.com/Matthops82/status/453592062139838464

And how!

And oh, what a boom it was! Henry’s brilliant rejoinder was only the beginning:

Behold the awesomeness:

Heh.

Oh, one more thing before we go:

Jennifer Palmieri profile

Whoops!

***

Update:

It appears that Palmieri’s account is shovel-ready:

So Carney is OK because he understands women’s suffering? That’s her comeback? How sad.

Congrats, White House, on picking yet another winner.

      The White House needs other people to carry out the policy so that Obama can then take credit for “leading from behind.”

        He just wants to “rule from the Whitehouse” – his exact words.

    • mrspinky85

      Someone did. Carney’s response is on another thread.

      • Suzyqpie

        The bar for Carney’s performance is set at curb height. Even with that in mind, Carney’s response set a new and improved Low.

        • Worship Dancer

          hmmm curb height. THAT must be why they are getting tripped up still.

    • Donny Zunker

      Hmmm…. at least $10.10 per hour, right?

  • Jeffrey Rogers

    I would not call Jay Carney a man.

    • Fire and Adjust!

      We should not hold that against Jay……….the WH staff has been explicitly instructed to not appear more manly than President Mom-Jeans

      • Jeffrey Rogers

        So, Richard Simmons is next up for Sec of State?

        • Fire and Adjust!

          I don’t think so……… John Kerry is not exactly the epitome of masculinity so Obama probably doesn’t feel threatened by him…………… On the other hand, Richard Simmons MAY be next in line to replace Kathleen Sebelius sometime in the near future………

            hey in THIS administration Richard Simmons is ALMOST as manly as mooch.

      • Ken Alan Draper

        If they can’t appear more manly then obama then they must be on female hormone therapy to avoid getting in trouble.

    • gekkobear

      I’m, not certain either.

      I think he may only be a man when he feels like a man, and not otherwise, sometimes, maybe… I think that’s the rule now.

      All the cis/non-cis gender variety terms have gotten me confused.

      Which may have been the goal of the LGBTOMGWTFBBQ crowd.

      • Zombiman

        i’m pretty sure it was the LGBLT and TSELLIOTT groups that made such a BFD about the EQPAY. It came up PDQ when FOX aired the NAACP rallies at the annual NATO retreat. <— yes, intentionally ridiculous. Well done gekkobear.

    And the takeaway from Ms Palmieri’s tweet is supposed to be WHAT, exactly? That MSM doesn’t take the issue seriously? That for tokenism’s sake, there ought to have been more women in the front row? For a Director of Communications, her message is pretty oblique, if you ask me. Which tells you all you need to know about this Administration, doesn’t it?

    • Ken Alan Draper

      That she is some kind if sexist who doesn’t think men are capable of asking questions & writing down answers is what I got out of it.

    So, more news outlets should have sent women to cover this because…..vagina? Am I getting this?

    • gekkobear

      No, if they’d gotten tough questions from women they’d still be peeved.

      They just decided this was better than “why don’t the liberal media stop asking slightly difficult questions when we make crap up” as a complaint.

    if that is the caliber of the WH communications department, headed by a woman, maybe the reason women are paid less at the WH is based on merit, and thus supports their claim that they are fair. Of course they doubt whether us lowly private citizens could be so discerning. As an aside, why is Obama and the left so bent on a War on Women?

    When all else fails, just exploit women for political gain. The real war on women ends when liberals stop telling us what we do and do not need the government to do for us, when they stop using us as a shiny object to dangle in front of the public to distract them from the failures of the progressive ideology. They can end the war any time they want, but choose not to because it’s so profitable and easy. Sad.

When a woman can’t even display acceptable fashion sense, it may just be too much to expect her to display an acceptable amount of overall common sense.

    Carney was stepping all over himself (nothing new) . The hypocrisy is unbelievable,doesn’t anyone in the Obama administration do a little homework? There is no equality in pay there. But for government it should be a piece a cake.
