I really should have expected that, honestly.
Former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, R-Byron Center, went first by slamming U.S. Rep. Gary Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, claiming he is a hypocrite, flip-flopper and beholden to President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
“Whenever men tell me about a war on women, I’m suspicious,” she said to a packed house at the Suburban Collection Showplace convention center in Novi. “Can you say hypocrisy? I’m not going to be lectured to by a man who pays the women in his office 67 cents on the dollar.”
Terri is, of course, referring to the minor awkwardness that Peters - like pretty much all the other Democratic party fatcats - talk up gender pay inequality, but never actually do anything about it close to home. As that NRSC (yes, I know*) article makes clear, Gary Peters is merely the worst of a bad bunch of Democratic Senate candidates with screaming cases of entitlement and absolutely no shame whatsoever. And here's something to also note: ever notice that you never read stories about how Democrats have raised their female staffers' pay, in light of the situation? It's like they've decided to address the problem via the classic Beltway Establishment method of ignoring it completely and hoping that the media will go find another chew toy.

...and if you are a Michigan voter, Terri Lynn Rand would quite like you to vote for her.
