He can duck and dodge, but the GOP War on Women continues.
I’ve heard that graduates of such places as Liberty University, Oral Roberts and Messiah College, et al, have a hard time getting jobs in the private sector, mainly, it’s been said, because they’re just not that bright. However, they can always count on some kind of employment in uber-Christian think tanks, businesses owned by like-minded zealots, or on the staffs of Republican politicians, so there’s that.
Another genius, Oscar Peterson, does his take on Ellington’s classic composition:
“Nick Hanauer, self-described ‘super-rich’ entrepreneur, gave a pretty compelling TED [Technology, Entertainment, Design] Talk about how the middle class —-not the super-rich -— are the real job creators. But TED, which has released over 100 different political videos in the past, thought this one was too partisan and chose not to release it. We didn’t notice any flaming partisanship in it. We normally love TED, and were surprised they didn’t think this talk was TEDworthy.
“Under pressure from the Internets, TED finally relented and released the video. Watch it and decide for yourself if it’s really all that controversial to say that the ‘super-rich are not job creators.’ Then share it like crazy.”
