Boehner Announces All Male House Leadership Appointees
What in the hell is Speaker John Boehner thinking? Is he thinking? Boehner has announced the leadership appointees for the upcoming session of the House of Representatives. Guess who he picked? A slate of solely white men. No women. No diversity. This is the face the Republican party in Congress wants to present to the American voter?
This is how Republican leadership is spoken about over at the Huffington Post:
I have to say this about that. The liberals are absolutely correct in mocking this disaster. I don't agree when they - all guys on this panel, too, I'll point out - say that maybe there is no pool of women from which to choose for leadership positions. That's nonsense. There are many and I can think of them off the top of my head. Granted, I may pay attention more closely of rising women leaders in the Republican party, but there is no shortage from which to choose. True, we need to grow our numbers on all levels of elected office, but we are there for the choosing.
This is maddening. This is embarrassing. This has got to stop.
