schadenfreude, how does it work?

Perfectly perfect. Seeing the GOP in action, it's almost as if the wicked witch threw the bucket of water on herself.

She must be a demon in the sack.

For the "a little too late" Files:
"Please, for the sake of the Party, put this issue to rest and don't let it fester going forward," she wrote. "I particularly don't want persons outside the party to hear about the quibbling as it will undermine our fundraising efforts among major donors."

I also like their response, "There is no War on Women."
 
2013-11-22 04:19:56 PM
She presumably joined the Republican party voluntarily?

Central deficit of republicans revealed. They can only understand a point of view if personally affected.

If she doesn't like it she could go work in the White House.

It is a little better.

Well, this lady doesn't sound that bright.  The original article has some real great stuff, and really sheds some light on why she deserved to have her salary cut.

The pay for the Republican chairman's position had been cut by GOP leaders - citing budget issues - at a meeting just prior to Hutchison's election in August.

So they knew she was going to win, or something?  Sounds to me like they would have lowered it regardless.

She added she'd personally raised $22,000 from 18 non-Republican Party donors from her personal list of contacts - "which more than covers" the $20,000 pay raise.

I don't think it works that way.  You don't raise money for your organization under the impression that you'll get all the money yourself.  Just ask your non-Republican Party friends to give you the money directly next time?
Hell, maybe your predecessor raised $40,000 from his personal list of contacts?

Since I declined nearly $11,000 in medical benefits, the true dispute involves less than $10k to the WSRP! That is not worth all the time and effort - and ill-will it has engendered

Again with the math.  You don't just get to trade in your medical benefits for cash.  Does not work that way, lady.  Maybe she should accept the $11,000 in medical benefits just to spite them.

Meh, that there's your standard flaw of taking the median salary across all employees in an office without accounting for similarity of job responsibilities.

What's the incentive to raise money if you don't get to keep it?

Just go away, Susan Hutchison. Nobody likes you.

God, I loathe Susan Hutchinson. Always have, back when she recited the news on TV. She's not wrong on this one, though.
 
2013-11-22 07:07:47 PM
As a fellow woman, I would like to tell her that, perhaps, supporting a party that pays a woman $20k/year less than her male predecessor is a sign that she is supporting the wrong party.

Of course that's what they're going to say.

Well, there it is then. No GOP war on women, ever since source told the Times so.

Woman claims the GOP's "War on Women" is directly responsible for her earning $20,000 less than her male predecessor in the same position.

And what she ACTUALLY said was that it looks bad by "playing into" that Democratic propaganda trope. Like the world would ever notice that her pay got cut unless she started complaining about it.
 
2013-11-22 07:12:53 PM
So unfortunate are the blind. The path here is clear: Cut taxes for the wealthy and increase military spending and eventually the wealth it generates will trickle down to her.

Damn it.


The dumbest part is that in his first example, he says the group needs 6 people to let the 4 women be raped, but the women always get 2 men to vote no. Then one guy changes the rule so you only need five votes - but if the women still keep getting 2 guys to vote no, the vote will still be the same. The argument is not only intentionally inflammatory but makes no mathematical or logical sense. So it's perfect for his listeners to bob their heads at while they get blowjobs from their cousins.

Ok, so what is it then?
A Police Action on women?
A Counter-Insurgency on women?
A Riot Suppression on women?

Whatcha calling it?

This reminds me of when Michele Bachmann's presidential campaign was shocked by the sexism displayed by religious Conservatives in Iowa. Surprise, a lot of Conservatives see women as nothing more than helpmates and do not see them as worthy of holding positions of power.

I'm not going to read that article and assume since the nuclear option was unavoidable, the Republican Senate should just lay back and enjoy it.

It seems to be a trend with republican women that they only see how destructive their party is when it affects them personally.

This is expected behavior. Your conservative appears to be operating normally.
 
2013-11-22 07:23:23 PM
My initial reaction: well, that sucks, but she kind of had to know that Republicans do that kind of thing.

"I particularly don't want persons outside the party to hear about the quibbling as it will undermine our fundraising efforts among major donors."

My new reaction: Oh, it's okay if women get paid less than men as long as no one find out?  Well then, all I have to say now is to bid you a hale and hearty go fark yourself.

Fellow Republicans told The Seattle Times that many within the party were upset that Hutchison even mentioned "the 'war on women' meme" in her memo.

What she actually said: Hutchison argued that the vote to reduce her salary had violated party bylaws, but more importantly, would seem "discriminatory and vindictive," especially given the party's recent problems with female voters.

The first step to fixing your problems is admitting that you have them.  Unfortunately for the Republican party, it appears to now be verboten to do so.

Stop supporting the GOP, then?

Ant: Now I remember her! What channel was she on?


Before KIRO-TV fired her in 2002, King County executive candidate Susan Hutchison badmouthed the station to an intern's mother, confronted its general manager about his offsite meetings with a female coworker, and called in sick so she could go canoeing in Oregon, according to court documents unsealed Friday.
 
2013-11-22 07:38:20 PM
•  As chairwoman of the GOP, she's okay when they do it to OTHER women?  But now that they're doing it to her it's outrageous?
•  This lady makes $75,000 a year and is upset about it because the person before her made more?
•  She doesn't want this case of the GOP treating women as a lesser getting out because... people might start to think the GOP doesn't think women are equal?

This one is precious too: "I left the meeting demoralized, and so did my hardworking staff."

• Her hardworking staff got demoralized because their boss didn't get a raise?

What a biatch.
