A Woman's Place is in the House....and the Senate

I'm appalled at the GOP and their latest idiotic statement: that Pelosi needs to be "put in her place" for expressing her views about McChrystal calling for an escalation of troops in Afghanistan. (See this article if you want a little more reporting.)

Pelosi stated, “I’m in my place, I’m speaker of the House... And I’m in my place because the House of Representatives voted me there. That language is something I haven’t even heard in decades.”

Damn straight. A woman's place is in the House. A woman's place is using her leadership role to speak out about concerns. A woman's place is up to her to define. Suck on that, GOP.
