I call it a myth instead of a lie because President Obama is such a shallow thinker that he probably thinks that women actually are earning 77% on the dollar to men for performing the same work.
Hanna Rosin at Slate (of all places) writes,
How many times have you heard that “women are paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men”? Barack Obama said it during his last campaign. Women’s groups say it every April 9, which is Equal Pay Day. In preparation for Labor Day, a group protesting outside Macy’s this week repeated it, too, holding up signs and sending out press releases saying “women make $.77 to every dollar men make on the job.” I’ve heard the line enough times that I feel the need to set the record straight: It’s not true.
Read the whole thing for the complete analysis. Obama is the intellectual equivalent of an animated GIF.

I’m having a slump. Here are some things you can read today instead of watching the State of the Union.
Kevin Williamson: Great Caesar’s Ghost – “On the nauseating spectacle that is the State of the Union address.”
Whether it’s Barack Obama or some subsequent pathological megalomaniac, Republican or Democrat, the increasingly ceremonial and quasi-religious aspect of the presidency is unseemly. It is profane. It is unbecoming of us as a people, and it has transformed the presidency into an office that can be truly attractive only to men who are unfit to hold it.

The Banana Republic File just got a little thicker. I can’t figure out why on Earth Democrats in the Senate are willing to just hand their branch’s power to the Executive. Do they honestly think that this kind of thing could never be used against their interests?
Arguing that Tea Party groups have a financial advantage after the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision, Schumer said the Obama administration should bypass Congress and institute new campaign finance rules through the IRS.
“It is clear that we will not pass anything legislatively as long as the House of Representatives is in Republican control, but there are many things that can be done administratively by the IRS and other government agencies—we must redouble those efforts immediately,” Schumer said.
It will be hilarious watching people like Schumer squeal when the next Republican president uses the exact tactics that Schumer is endorsing. Hey buddy, it was your idea to give the Executive Branch this kind of authority. You reap what you sow.
I’m moving the blog over to WordPress.org, so if something funny happens in the next week or so I haven’t blown up the blog.
