Been out a while.

December 10, 2008

Well I’ve been out of sorts lately had to go to the doctor and get poked and prodded and lectured. Yes, I know I should take my blood pressure medication, so now I will.

Got to work today and the power was out, so I had to wait on the power company to come out and restore it. I get a phone call from our main office and they want me to go to my bosses office and check on a fax machine, they said it wouldn’t pick up. I tell them that the power is out here and she asks; “It won’t work without power?”, I tell her not unless they’ve made magical fax machines that work without being plugged into the wall. I’m a computer technician not a miracle worker.


CNN Commentator Shocked Sexism Exists!

December 3, 2008

CNN Commentator Campbell Brown seems shocked that sexism has reared its ugly head in this day and time. Given that politicians have in the past gotten caught saying some things they wished they hadn’t, you’d think that they would learn, sadly, no.

On an open microphone at the National Governors conference Pennsylvania’s Governor Ed Rendell had this to say about Janet Napolitano, President-Elect Obama’s choice for Homeland Security Secretary:

Rendell: Janet’s perfect for that job. Because for that job, you have to have no life. Janet has no family. Perfect. She can devote, literally, 19-20 hours a day to it

Campbell Brown, CNN host of “No Bias, No Bull” made it commentary on her show.

Campbell Brown, you shouldn’t be surprised, as has been said before women are more closely scrutinized than men. Try wearing the same dress to work two days in a row. When Sarah Palin was running as VP pick on the Republican ticket, the media and left wing blogs were all a twitter about how she was going to handle being a new mother and do her job. Now when was the last time anyone had any concern whether a male politician could be a father and do his job? I’m going to guess, almost never.

Ed Morrissey at HotAir gives us his take as well.
