Dear John Boehner,
I must admit, in the past, I have referred to you as ‘John of Orange’ and I have also made fun of you for crying all the time. I mean, you ARE kind of orange and you DO cry a lot. But this isn’t why I am writing to you. I’m writing to you because I am an American woman and I voted for Obama. I voted for equality—equality for all, not just women. I think this idea of equality must be very frightening and disturbing to you. You see, you’re an old-timer, stuck in the stale belief that men are somehow superior to women, blacks, gays, Hispanics and anyone who is not a white male. There are many ways to illustrate this point, but the most recent, and frankly very disturbing, example of your fear, is your refusal to cooperate with a bipartisan coalition of Senate Leaders and extend the Violence Against Women Act.
