For those not familiar with the series, "Yes, Minister" and "Yes, Prime Minister" are British political comedies from the 80's, full of brilliant commentary about the political process -- as applicable to our own system as to that which it satirized. Rarely are parallels between the machinations of the fictitious Sir Humphrey Appleby and our all-too-real political leaders as poignant as the discussion of women's rights. But in this case, rather than "positive discrimination", consider it in light of "pay equality". I give you the Republican stance:
Compare this to what they've actually been saying, and tell me I'm wrong...
(Sorry for two diaries so close together, but I remembered this segment after listening to some of the nonsense the GOP is spewing in its defense of the status quo.)
