And Then I Took Away His Feminist Card

These links are for JSM, who has been too busy working to pay attention to political matters that matter to only half the population (i.e. the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act), and then made the mistake of trying to act like a on centrist on John McCain, (and I quote!) saying "He's not bad for a Republican. He doesn't toe the party line -- he's a maverick."

Dahlia Lithwick provides an excellent discussion of the Lily Ledbetter case and the Fair Pay Act.

Jezebel has a nice summary, with a lovely quote from Harry Reid at the end. And by the way, I will not abide any more claims that McCain is a maverick, when he won't show up to do the right thing when it means crossing party lines.

Momocrats puts the asinine McCain quote right at the top, where he frets that providing legal recourse against discrimination will lead to...wait for it...lawsuits!

And Bitch Ph.D. provides a link to the senate voting on the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.
