The Patriarchy Has No New Tricks

So I'm reading this interview with Noorjahar Akbar, a college student and activist in Afghanistan. She's awesome, btw. And it's amazing how the patriarchy is the (same kind of) suck EVERYWHERE. Street harassment! It's women's fault. Rape! It's women's fault.

But that's not all that's the same. Who said:

“Gender issues are going to have to take a back seat to other priorities. There’s no way we can be successful if we maintain every special interest and pet project. All those pet rocks in our rucksack were taking us down.”

Was it:
A)An anonymous senior official at USAID talking about Afghanistan

B) A Republifucker in any flyover state justifying cutting off planned parenthood

C) A White House spokesperson

D) Any member of "liberal" blogosphere, including but not limited to Cheetoh Eaters

I know, it's so tough. It could be any of them. All of them. Why do they all sound so fucking alike, the douchenoodles of the world?

(The answer is A. Though I am pretty damn sure I remember Obama making similar comments during the Stupak Healthcrap Brouhaha).

No New Tricks. Not a one.
