  1. The best part of that Sarah Silverman thing is her DAD chiming in in the comments!

    Your link had some of what he said, here’s more from over at HuffPo:

    Hey asshole: Daughter #1 is a rabbi. Not by your standards. She’s reform. How dare she, a lowly woman think god wants her to be a rabbi, created from a mere rib. Her hubby, three times nominated for a nobel peace prize was listed by the Jerusalem Post as the 49th most influential jew in the world built the worlds largest solar field in israel. By the way, Sarah was also on the list. I missed your name. Oldest granddaughter is serving in the Israel Defense Forces. I’m sure you also served.Oh I forgot the orthodox don’t do that. You don’t fuck with my family.

  2. NEWS FLASH: Scientists, talking heads and religious leaders agree, women need to understand what men think is important for women to think is important so that women can more fully meet men’s expectations.

    Stella, Sarah and their parents give me hope.

  3. There’s a point where Mika needs to have a sandwich on a plate under her desk. The next time Joe and Co. pull this shit, she can just pull the sandwich out and slide it over to him.
    “There ya go, Joe. Why don’t you have a little snack before you tell me what I should be thinking.”
    Do Joe and that Halperin guy really think that their poll is a more accurate way of gauging what women think than asking the woman sitting right next to them?

      1. You only have to think about it for a second.
        Which is more important to any particular woman: the minute ( i.e. < 1% ) difference between a Romney economy and an Obama economy … or a 35% raise because of pay equity?
        Hm.
        Take your time, Joe.

  4. The University of Chicago jerk recently wrote an article for Psychology Today about what he thinks the real reason is for people’s tendency to favor more attractive people. http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/games-primates-play/201203/the-truth-about-why-beautiful-people-are-more-successful

    Basically because, “The male mind is designed in such a way when it comes to sex that heterosexual men will do anything to increase their chances to have sex with an attractive woman…” I didn’t know society was made solely of men. Sounds like some evopsych crap he tells himself so he doesn’t have to question his own asshole remarks and behaviors.

    Didn’t PT also publish this? PT is a rag.
