JFK also posed with life-sized Nancy Pelosi


It turns out that Mark Sanford got his posing-next-to-Nancy-Pelosi shtick from a Democrat — JFK, to be precise.

Who knew?

I didn’t, until the DCCC sent out a fundraising appeal with the following text:

Brad —

I’m not sure if you were alive when President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act 50 years ago today.

I was a recent Trinity College graduate (here’s a picture of me with President Kennedy from just a couple years before to prove it):

President Kennedy called the Equal Pay Act “a first step” to ending the widespread practice of paying women less than men for the same amount of work. And that’s exactly what it was: a first step.

50 years later, we’re still fighting this fight, and women STILL make 23 cents less on the dollar. House Democrats have proposed a solution — the Paycheck Fairness Act — but Republicans voted to block this legislation from even coming to a vote. That’s unacceptable…

And so forth and so on. I’m happy to say that she restrained herself from saying “War on Women” this time, so let’s be grateful.

Basically, I just wanted to share the picture…
