Further Evidence That Female Politicians Are NOT Screwing Their Interns

As if we didn’t already know this.  It makes perfect sense.  Women are better legislators than men, says a new study conducted by researchers at Stanford University and the University of Chicago.  According to Politico.com, the study has (preliminarily) concluded that “on average, women in Congress introduce more bills, attract more co-sponsors, and bring home more money for their districts than their male counterparts do.”

Duh.

As a former political candidate, someone who works with politicians every day, and a graduate of the Emerge program,  it’s pretty clear to me that female politicians simply work harder than their male colleagues.  Perhaps it’s because women are still under-represented in elective office and they feel as though they stand for their gender to anyone who is paying attention.  Or perhaps it’s just that, in the words of Gloria Steinem, women are never frontrunners.  Women have to work twice as hard as men to be treated equally, and this work ethic probably follows female candidates into office. 

And then there’s the elephant in the room. Perhaps female legislators are more effective because they are far less distracted by their libidos.  You know what I’m talking about, that study that has yet to be written that says that a female legislator is far less likely to be caught sexting with an underage intern or bragging into a microphone about how she boffed a lobbyist with a spanking fetish.  I mean really.  Just THINK of all the time female polititicans are saving by NOT traveling to Argentina for an extramarital affair or surfing the internet for porn once a week or more

I wonder, how much time during the day does your average male politician think about sex?

Apparently it’s about the same amount of time that their female colleagues are using to write legislation, win over co-sponsors, and secure funding for a hometown project. Oh yeah, backwards, in high heels.

  1. Awesome. Of course, it’s blatantly sexist, but that’s OK, I suppose: at least you’re going after more than half of the politicians, and I say that’s a worthy target. Don’t hesitate to pick on the girls and their bad votes, though.
