Bill Kristol = Feminist
Too funny. Is there anything the GOP won't stoop to?

http://www.prospect.org/csnc/blogs/ezraklein_archive?mo...

Bil Kristol is concerned about the Democrats' "glass ceiling" when it comes to vice presidential choices. That, after all, is the only possible explanation for Hillary Clinton not being chosen for the vice-presidency. Out of curiosity, I wandered over to the masthead of his magazine, The Weekly Standard, to see what a leading feminist like Kristol was doing for the advancement of women in politics. Out of 20 editorial positions, three are held by women. Of those three positions, all are "administrative" editorial: Managing editor, editorial assistant, and another editorial assistant. Of the 18 "contributing editors" to the magazine, exactly one is a woman.

People standing on glass ceilings shouldn't throw stones.

1. Thanks for your research
The Repubs are living in a glass house now. Even the low info voter ought to be able to "see through" their arguments.

5. don't you love it? they just keep digging themselves in deeper and deeper by using the same ole same
ole which didn't make sense the first time but stupidly some citizens never took the time to realize this obvious flaw of the gop, nowadays they are not taking such gop talking points for granted as they once did regardless of what the msm gop echo chambers want you to believe.

4. I often wonder if idiots like Kristol will get even richer in the coming Demcoratic Majority years.
I mean, look at what 8 years of neocon rule has done for Democrats. We're huge! :)
