Daily Beast’s Michael Tomasky explains why conservative women are so dumb


That’s the least he could do.

Yesterday, Kirsten Kukowski, an RNC press secretary, appeared on MSNBC to discuss the so-called gender wage gap. The Daily Beast’s Michael Tomasky got a big kick out of it, because conservative woman:


According to Tomasky, conservative women are better off being seen and not heard:


Here are some highlights:

OK, on reflection, I do feel a little sorry for her. That she had only gibberish to spout in response to that question isn’t really her fault. It’s the fault of her party, all those men in her party, all those Southern men and their Southern beliefs and ways. One is tempted to believe that Republicans vote against things like the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act because of the demands of their corporate contributors, and that’s undoubtedly true, to some extent. But it isn’t corporate benefactors who make Todd Akin and some of these other men say the batshit crazy things about women they say. That’s culture.

Kukowski had nothing to say because George W. Bush sat in the White House for eight years, six of them with a compliant Republican Congress, and never passed or that I can recall even introduced or even talked about one bill aimed at workplace gender fairness. She had nothing to say because since Barack Obama became president, the Republicans have voted no no no on any measure of this sort. Four Senate Republicans did vote aye on Lilly Ledbetter back in 2009. Yep, you guessed it: the “girls”—Collins, Hutchison, Murkowski, Snowe. Not a single man. In the House, Ledbetter got three.

It’s partly a corporate thing, a business thing. But mostly it’s cultural. Women just aren’t supposed to be that pushy. “All Republicans support equal pay for equal work,” claimed the first sentence of the memo Kukowski and two colleagues released Tuesday. Of course, they have to say that. But obviously, all Republicans do not, or they’d have done something, on their terms, during those six years Bush and Denny Hastert and Bill Frist were running things. Very few Republicans do. Especially the Southern ones, who by and large run the party, or at least provide its cultural ballast. It isn’t how they were raised, and it doesn’t feel right to them. They think the Paycheck Fairness Act has its origins in that night when a likkered-up Mickey Gilley slashed Johnny Paycheck’s tires.

Shorter Tomasky: Damn sexist southern Republicans … Also, can you believe conservative women are so stupid?


Very impressive.


Michael’s quite a catch.


Guess he got shot down one too many times. Color us surprised.

The State Dept. won’t like this Katie Pavlich brutal truth-snark so … here it is!


Yes, that happened. As Twitchy readers know, State Department deputy spokesperson Marie “Clown’ Harf has her laser-like focus on Bill O’Reilly. Citizens rightly schooled the dangerously incompetent loon.


Then came author, Townhall editor and Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich, who gave Harf the business as only she can.


Perspective and truth. You should try it some time, Ms. Harf. But, you know, reality is hard.


Don’t look now State Dept.’s Marie Harf, you are being schooled! (Her latest idiocy is enraging) [photos]

Unreal! Clowns: State Dept. has no strategy on ISIS; Spox Marie Harf busy slamming Fox News 

‘WTF?!’ Hey guys, it’s all good! Obama says we can shrink ISIS to a ‘manageable problem’

‘No labels’ for savage ISIS beheading? Dolt Jen Psaki blasted; Katie Pavlich has question for State Dept.

See Katie Pavlich destroy Climate March hypocrites with their own photos


Fox News contributor, Townhall editor and author Katie Pavlich noticed the utter hypocrisy as well. And gave the “People’s Climate March” loons the business as only she can … using their own photos and actions.

If @Peoples_Climate really wanted to help the environment they'd ditch the paper signs & iphones (they come from a mine you know). Morons.

@KatiePavlich @Peoples_Climate : Can you say "hypocritical?"

— William Herman, PhD (@williampherman) September 21, 2014

Yep. And yet another example of a staggering lack of self-awareness.

Take a look:

@KatiePavlich @Peoples_Climate I wonder, how much of this stuff if going to end up in landfills after the march?

— David (@TheSalesmanLV) September 21, 2014

Yup. Like the creepy puppet.

@KatiePavlich And the faux leather belt and the duct tape on the sign…

@KatiePavlich @Peoples_Climate Is that woman on her smartphone? I'm sure that was made with petroleum too. #PeopleClimateMarch

Reality is hard, as usual.

When the #ClimateMarch peeps give up their smartphones and plastic shoes, then I'll start taking them seriously.

— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) September 21, 2014

Well, probably not even then. Because, you know, they are loony liars. But it’s totally OK guys!

Al Gore flew his private plane and took a private escalade to a march.. so it's cool everyone. #PeoplesClimate

— S.M (@redsteeze) September 21, 2014

Giggling madly.

Instead of “healing the planet,” these hypocrites should heal themselves.


Is this #ClimateMarch sign the least self-aware thing EVER? (Hint: Yes. Yes it is) [photos]
