The rules are simple: I post a quotation by an actual elected lawmaker, and you get to guess which political party he or she belongs to! Here's your first quotation:
“Men, by and large, make more because some of the things that they do,” he opined. “Their jobs are, by and large, riskier. They don’t mind working nights and weekends. They don’t mind working overtime or outdoors.”

Jennifer Rubin probably deserves to have a dump truck full of her “credibility” deposited on her front lawn. It’s a level of sheer, overwhelming absurdity that would drive Beckett and Pinter to sit around in their underwear all day reading Lolcats and drinking moonshine because they couldn’t deal with trying to process it.
