Practice What You Preach

Hillary!'s supporters are going to love this bit of hypocrisy:

The average pay for the 33 men on Obama's staff (who earned more than $23,000, the lowest annual salary paid for non-intern employees) was $59,207. The average pay for the 31 women on Obama's staff who earned more than $23,000 per year was $48,729.91. (The average pay for all 36 male employees on Obama's staff was $55,962; and the average pay for all 31 female employees was $48,729. The report indicated that Obama had only one paid intern during the period, who was a male.)

McCain, an Arizona senator, employed a total of 69 people during the reporting period ending in the fall of 2007, but 23 of them were interns. Of his non-intern employees, 30 were women and 16 were men. After excluding interns, the average pay for the 30 women on McCain's staff was $59,104.51. The 16 non-intern males in McCain's office, by comparison, were paid an average of $56,628.83.

The Obama campaign did not respond to written questions submitted on the matter Thursday by Cybercast News Service .

No, I imagine not.

Come on Rand you know the Mccain Campaign paid extra to get woman on board for this particular stat.

And the Woman working for Obama I wouldn't be surprised if they have statistically non trivial amount taking a pay cut so they have a chance to be the next Monica (TM) to the new messiah of the left.

Not bad for the price. The McCain campaign does find some cost effective ways to get ahead.

Well at least Obama isn't known for addressing his wife Michelle as "C*NT". Apparently Cindy is used to this form of endearment.

I'm sure Hillary!'s supporters find McCain's abandonmnet of his first crippled wife, and his terms of endearment towards his current wife, who by the way he apparently drove to painkiller abuse, rather unattractive.

In the end though, McCain is funding deprived. Hopefully Simby has contributed $2300 to McSame's campaign. Or has he?
