This is what made me mad on Wednesday; when I finally got around to reading the transcript.
"We're going to have to have employers in the new economy, in the economy I'm going to bring to play, that are going to be so anxious to get good workers they're going to be anxious to hire women."Just let that sink in.
Mitt Romney 16th October 2012: 2nd Presidential debate.
So let me get this straight.
Only when Mitt waves his magic wand, and I assume by that he means his penis, companies will even want to hire women?
Or another way of looking at is, that in tough economic times employers are looking for not quite so good workers; hence they employ men.
Doubly insulting, no?
So Presidential magic wand to the fore in this trickle down nirvana, driven by a government that doesn't believe that government is the solution; Mitt as President will have the solution.
Seriously, the disconnect between reality and myth is widening, so I have a few questions.
1] So at what point in the economic recovery does it become sensible to hire people with vaginas?
2] Does having a penis trump a resume?
3] Does having a penis imply that you are not a good worker?
4] If government does not create jobs how the hell are you going to keep your promise?
5] When you say anxious, what exactly do you mean?
anxious-adjNow I would suggest that you mean number 1 above, because if they only hire good workers with vaginas under your all new miraculous economy, and the only reason they didn't do so before hand was that it made them tense?
1. worried and tense because of possible misfortune, danger, etc.; uneasy
2. fraught with or causing anxiety; worrying; distressing an anxious time
3. intensely desirous; eager
I say this because if it was really reason 3, we wouldn't be talking about this dickish comment at all; and no binders would in fact be required.
6] Finally, now that they have overcome their anxiety, would women be eligible for the same wages as the penis bearing employees?
