It has been a busy week for Texas ladies who support Greg Abbott and not that lying baby killer Wendy Davis. On Sunday, Cari Christman, spokeswoman for a pro-Abbott PAC, said that equal pay laws aren't needed,since women are "busy." And then on Monday, the Executive Director of the Texas Republican Party, Beth Cubriel, explained that ladies simply need to do more of that Leaning Forward:


"Men are better negotiators. I would encourage women instead of pursuing the courts for action to become better negotiators."

Who needs a Texas version of the federal Lilly Ledbetter Act when the solution is so much simpler: just man up and negotiate better pay, ladies, and everything will be fine. If you're not too busy.

Cari Christman, Executive Director of "RedState Women," explained in an interview on WFAA that her PAC doesn't like the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which extends the amount of time that women can file claims for pay discrimination. And that has nothing to do with the fact that it was the first bill signed into law by Barack Obama -- it's just that, as Christman said, “women want real-world solutions to this problem, not more rhetoric.” See, actual changes in the law that would make discrimination suits easier are just empty talk. Gotta do something real like say "real-world solutions" a lot. And then Christman offered the very realistic and tangible GOP alternative that would actually solve problems in the real world:

“We lead busy lives, whether working professionally, whether working from home, and times are extremely busy ... It’s a busy cycle for women, and we’ve got a lot to juggle. So when we look at this issue we think, what’s practical? And we want more access to jobs. We want to be able to get a higher education degree at the same time we’re working or raising a family.”

See? Instead of some vaguely defined expansion of the right to sue for fair pay, with specific definitions of time limits, Republicans know women are busy, and want access to jobs and raising a family. But without lawsuits or legal requirements for equal pay, which hurt prosperity for job creators. Greg Abbott recognizes this, and promises to fight for women's right to be busy.

And then there's Texas GOP Executive Director Cubriel, who has even more of those real-world solutions -- instead of being able to sue an employer who's discriminated against them, what ladies need to realize is that men are just better negotiators, so if anyone is to blame when a woman is underpaid, it's the woman, who failed to negotiate a better salary for herself. Now just how is it fair to go to court and hold a job creator responsible for that lady being such a lousy negotiator?

Silly ladies, stop blaming the people who pay you less for your problems, and come join the GOP, the party of real-world solutions. If you find the time, of course, with the cycles.

Corey Stewart, the Minnesota transplant to Virginia who's made protecting "Confederate Heritage" a top issue in his campaign for the US Senate, accused a nosy New York Times reporter of breaking into the apartment of one of his aides. It's a terrific accusation, because while there's no evidence at all and the story makes no damn sense, that doesn't matter at all to people who'd vote for Corey Stewart. They already hate the evil media and know those nasty reporters are capable of all the depravity in the world.

Hey, remember that hilarious time when Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy got caught on tape joking that LOL, Donald Trump and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher were totally on Putin's payroll? WaPo got the goods:

"There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump," McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016 exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy's assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

It's funny 'cause it's true! ALLEGEDLY. Earlier this month, Congressman Lubyanka Rohrabacher told Fox reporter Elex Michaelson that DNC hack was obviously an inside job.
