The President didn't mean that HE discriminates, only that we do

Apparently the ridiculously idiotic use of the gender wage gap to measure discrimination applies only to everyone else, but not to the White House.  Among White House staffers, women make only 88 percent of what men make.  But the president's spokesman says that if you account for other factors the gap disappears, so it's unfair to use the gap to indicate discrimination. If only he'd had the decency and honesty to make these corrections for everyone else.

Update: When the White House loses CNN, you know they're in trouble.  Who next? MSNBC?
