Slate’s Dickerson: Obama deceptions might be a deliberate attention-diverting strategy « Hot Air: "It’s a little difficult to believe this, though. The 77-cent myth has been so thoroughly debunked as a metric for “equal pay for equal work” that nearly everyone blew the whistle on it. Even after having it repeatedly debunked both now and when Obama included it in his State of the Union speech, the White House keeps using it as part of their argument, arguing that it’s “shameful” — which it is, but not for the reason they claim. If it’s not deliberate, then the only other possibility is that the entire Obama administration and the President himself are too dense to comprehend the explanation, offered a multitude of times across the political spectrum."
