Media Always Blames Glass Ceiling When GOP Women Make Choices

Politico is hyperventilating all over itself that Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) decided not to run for any higher leadership position in the House than she already has. Obviously, something is to blame.

Back to the old “glass ceiling” canard.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers found out what generations of Republican women before her have discovered: The glass ceiling on Capitol Hill is real.

The Washington Republican’s bid for House majority leader was over before it even started. After just a few days of phone calls, McMorris Rodgers, 46, formally decided against running for the No. 2 leadership slot, virtually ensuring the top three posts will be held by white men.

McMorris Rodgers will remain as House Republican Conference chair, but that looks like as high as she’ll go in the GOP pecking order. It’s also as high as any woman has ever reached.

While there are more women serving in Congress than ever before, for female Senate and House Republicans, there is no sign that any of them will be party leader anytime soon.

Politico is awfully quick with the whining, though this is for their own purposes. They could not care less about McMorris Rodgers as a person. As is typical of the left, they see special category (in this case, gender) first, person and qualifications second.
