We have done that. They told us to be ladies, to be submissive, to keep our voices down and our hands in our laps. They tried to enforce it with legislation, with hiring, with paying us less than men, with fashions that kept us quiet and hobbled. It got us bupkis. So now we're doing it different. Already the sight of a pink pussyhat makes them grope for the Viagra. They shall know fear.

What a surprise! 13 Republican senators will draft the Senate's version of legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare. Take a guess how many of the 13 are women.
