Kirsten Gillibrand Claims Female Leaders Would Have Avoided 2008 Financial Crisis
I think we've got an undisputed winner for Dumbass of the Day. A ticker tape parade and a gold medal for Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. She's now claiming vaginal wizardry would have prevented the 2008 market collapse.
"The empowerment of women is so important throughout the economy," Gillibrand said. "We don't value women in society, and that's just a fact."
"It's not just, ‘I feel exposed and I'm tearing up cuz I'm not like a man,' how about, ‘I'm tearing up because I'm so angry and frustrated and my emotional intelligence is what's going to make this country succeed.'"
Yeah, putting emotions over logic is exactly why the left is a giant heap of suckage. Lefties are so overcome with emotions over the cute illegal girl with the Dora the Explorer backpack. Which causes them to miss the MS-13 pendejo getting his 1-8-7 on with a machete.
"If it wasn't Lehman Brothers but Lehman Sisters, we might not have had the financial collapse," she raised her voice to say. "It is the value that a woman brings to that table that she has all these different life experiences."
"Amen, sister," Palmieri said.
Basically, girl power would magically make giving loans to people with single-digit credit scores work.
This is pretty much the same argument as "if women ran the world, there would be no wars." A Y-chromosome is a guaranteed sign of a Cro-Magnon dummybutt. Females are the only sex intelligent and decisive enough to run the show. Just disregard those half-hour brainstorming sessions on such important issues as "where to eat."
You know, pulling the "girls rule and boys drool" card without a whiff of irony is, dare I say, sexist. Maybe think about checking your femme privilege there, Kirsten.
