Yesterday, GOP Rep. Lynn Jenkins criticized the Democrats’ “gender wage gap” ridiculousness:
Jenkins called the Democratic criticism of Republican policies toward women “condescending.”
“Let me set the record straight: We strongly support equal pay for equal work,” she said. “And I’m proud that I live in a country where it’s illegal to discriminate in the workplace, thanks to the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
“Many 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,” 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 “ladies” now? Is that it?

@davidaxelrod Is the word “ladies” now verboten? I can’t keep up.

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