SNIP: Isn’t Janet Napolitano ‘clearly’ 50% female?

Daily Caller

As President Barack Obama finalizes his second-term cabinet picks, the nation’s leading feminist group is pushing for more female appointments.

Currently, the president, who garnered 55 percent of the women’s vote on Election Day, has eight females in his 23-member cabinet. According the National Organization for Women, that number isn’t nearly high enough.

NOW president Terry O’Neill, in an interview with The Daily Caller, explained that she would like to see complete gender parity in Obama’s second-term cabinet.

“I think that if half of the cabinet were women and half of the Supreme Court and half of Congress were women, we would see a lot more policies for expanding education and health care and social services that allow communities to thrive,” O’Neill explained. “We’d see a lot less spending on military weapons systems, and we would also see a lot less of the most powerful, moneyed people not paying their fair share.”

    NOW defends the burkha – declaring it liberating. NOW defends Bill Maher calling Sarah Palin a dumbass cunt – declaring it freedom of speech.

    NOW hates women. NOW bitches want to be like wife-beating men which is why they hate beauty and femininity and express solidarity with abusive men and musloidism.

    I think that if half of the cabinet were women and half of the Supreme Court and half of Congress were women…

    What if they are conservative women? Wanna bet O’Neill would be frothing at the mouth and wailing like a banshee that they aren’t “real” women?

    …we would see a lot more policies for expanding education and health care and social services that allow communities to thrive.

    Yeah, thriving. Just like The People’s Socialist Quagmire of California.

    NOW president Terry O’Neill fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. No wonder she’s bitter, dried up old hag. No man would have her.

    So if the most qualified candidates are 60% female a few of them should be disqualified because they are over-quota. Got it.

    WAIT… I thought it was the conservatives that were fighting the “War on Women”? When did we get ‘Mr. Mom Jeans’ on our team? Wasn’t he supposed to be the fluffy and cuddly choice?

    I am so confused…

    It must be Bush’s fault.

    Makes sense. After all, his wife is 50% female, so is his sec. of state. . .and that thing he put on the supreme court, hell, I’ll bet it’s at least 40% female!

    What an idiot. So many of these voting blocks still don’t realize that Obama got what he wants from them and doesn’t need them any more and couldn’t give a shit what they say/whine/scream. Some people are just too stupid to live.

    I’ll go for the proportionate representation – so long as the 50% are young, attractive, and skimpily clad bimbos and floozies with “large tracts of land.” I doubt Obama is going to appoint anyone competent, so I may as well lobby for the eye candy.

    @Wyatt — Reminds me of when we recalled Gray Davis her in CA. A porn star decided she wanted to run for governor and actually got on the ballot. I always said we should have done this.
