    to that?

    "Liberals are such racists! They're the ones who are sexist!"

    I know. It makes no sense to me, either. All 19 of these guys believe that they've been as racially assaulted and held down because of gender as much as every ethnic group and gender in the history of the world. I'd like to know exactly who did all these terrible things to the poor white, straight, rich, Christian males.

    Women? Yes, by winning the right to vote and work and wear pants, women have virtually kicked men in the balls and now we're all messed up. Women are just kicking men in the balls all day long, on their way to their jobs that pay equal or more than men make. That's why the president signed Ledbetter. He wanted to make sure men continued to get kicked in the balls.

    Blacks? Uh-huh. Affirmative action that requires that a company have one damn black guy, for the love of Jesus, is what's robbing white men of their prosperity. How long will blacks, whose unemployment rate is still sometimes double the national average, continue to make white men poor and sad? How long, dammit, how long???

    So, that's why white, straight, male, Christian, conservative men ban together in brotherhood this way. They shall overcome....what they will overcome, I dunno, but they will climb from the pits of oppression to take back America...from whom I'm not sure. Looks like there's 19 of them in chairman positions so that's a start. Godspeed to them.

    /snark (just in case) ;P
