Texas Republican Ladies Solve Sex Discrimination Forever

It has been a busy week for Texas ladies who support Greg Abbott and not that lying baby killer Wendy Davis. On Sunday, Cari Christman, spokeswoman for a pro-Abbott PAC, said that equal pay laws aren’t needed, since women are “busy.” And then on Monday, the Executive Director of the Texas Republican Party, Beth Cubriel, explained that ladies simply need to do more of that Leaning Forward: “Men are better negotiators. I would encourage women instead of pursuing the courts for action to become better negotiators.” Who needs a Texas version of the federal Lilly Ledbetter Act when the solution is so much simpler: just man up and negotiate better pay, ladies, and everything will be fine. If you’re not too busy. Read more on Texas Republican Ladies Solve Sex Discrimination Forever…

Despite Risk Of Raging Libido, GOP Picks a LADY To Deliver State Of The Union Response

Oh ladies. If the GOP isn’t insulting your intellectual capacity, demanding you be submissive, or trying to keep your libido in check (because you are all raging fuckmonsters), then they are desperately wooing you for your votes. Their latest attempt to distract from their 1930-era policies is to scrounge around and find a GEN-YOU-INE lady to deliver the Republican response to the State of the Union. Rep.

WONKETTE EXCLUSIVE! James O’Keefe Depos: Breitbart Paid Pimp, Ho Mad Cheddar For ACORN Videos

WONKET EXCLUSIVE! MUST CREDIT WONKETTE!!1! Very independent citizen-journalist James O’Keefe and his equally self-funded co-star in the ACORN stings, Hannah Giles, got real paid shortly after finishing their videos in the early fall of 2009, according to depositions taken three weeks ago. The pair admitted under oath to signing contracts with (the now recently deceased) Andrew Breitbart and his business partner, attorney Larry Solov, for the sum total of $120,000. Pretty shocking, right? You could buy a fairly high-end sex boat with that kind of cash. Or, one could, anyway. The depositions were taken this past March at the Washington, D.C. offices of Planet Depos — a third-party supplier of certified court reporters and legal videographers that is really, actually named that, which is totally great. The depositions were taken as part of an ongoing lawsuit filed by Juan Carlos Vera, a former ACORN employee secretly recorded by O’Keefe and Giles during their sting at the community organizing group’s San Diego offices. (Recording confidential conversations without the consent of all parties is a violation of section 632 of the California penal code.) Read more on WONKETTE EXCLUSIVE!
