Obama's Female Staffers Engage in Groupthink. World Applauds!

Julie Gunlock

Yesterday, The Washington Post ran a story about women in the White House and their struggle to be taken more seriously among the West Wing boys club. According to the story, certain female staffers felt they weren't being heard or taken very seriously in meetings with the boss so they hatched a scheme to get noticed.

Female staffers adopted a meeting strategy they called “amplification”: When a woman made a key point, other women would repeat it, giving credit to its author. This forced the men in the room to recognize the contribution — and denied them the chance to claim the idea as their own. 

“We just started doing it, and made a purpose of doing it. It was an everyday thing,” said one former Obama aide who requested anonymity to speak frankly.

I get it, I get it. Okay ladies, this is what you do: No matter what a female says, nod in agreement like a robot!

If a female says "we should bomb the crap out of North Korea" just clap your hands and say "heck yes!" If a woman says "time to start paying those Iranians for American hostages," raise your hands above your head and scream "can I get a hallelujah?" If someone says "time to bring back prayer in schools," just grin and give a big thumbs...oh wait. 

Anyway, you get the point. If you have lady parts, never disagree with the lady sitting next to you.

We're all in this groupthink together. Way to go, ladies.
