Yesterday,Â GOP Rep. Lynn Jenkins criticized the Democratsâ âgender wage gapâ ridiculousness:
Jenkins called the Democratic criticism of Republican policies toward women âcondescending.â
âLet me set the record straight: We strongly support equal pay for equal work,â she said. âAnd Iâm proud that I live in a country where itâs illegal to discriminate in the workplace, thanks to the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
âMany ladies I know feel like they are being used a pawns and find it condescending that Democrats are trying to use this issue as a political distraction from the failures of their economic policies,â Jenkins said.
David Axelrod thought that was ironic or something:
Is it ungentlemanly to note irony of Rep. Jenkins quote? "Many LADIES I know feel like they are being used as pawns" in equal pay debate.

So, Republican women should avoid using âladiesâ now? Is that it?

This would be so much easier if Obama would just appoint a word czar.
