Don't worry, women. Republicans have your back!

So do you believe that women should be paid the same as men for doing the exact same job?

Of course you do! How about the Executive Director of RedState Women, a Republican group focused on outreach to women?

Well, to start with, Cari Christman doesn't believe that legislation like the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which is a small step towards salary equality, is the way to do it. What does she think would work?
"If you look at it, women are extremely busy," she said. "We lead busy lives, whether working professionally, whether working from home, and times are extremely busy. It's a busy cycle for women, and we've got a lot to juggle. So when we look at this issue we think, what's practical? And we want more access to jobs. We want to be able to get a higher education degree at the same time we're working or raising a family."
So the Republican solution to women being paid far less than men is "Women be busy".

Got it.

How in the hell does that have anything to do with the issue?

My brain is full of fuck now. Thanks for that.

You're welcome!

It's truly some Palin-worthy word salad.
