I wish I were surprised that 7th District Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn went on national television and said something blindingly stupid. But I'm not.

You can read the story linked above for details, but the short of it is that Blackburn either doesn't understand what an equal pay law is, or she is just trying to spin her refusal to vote for such laws as a principled ideological stance. Either way, if she really thinks "most women" don't want equal pay protection for doing equal work, she's piteously out of touch with reality.
