What's the matter, NOW - this was not the president you had been Hoping for? Or are you guys just, you know - frickin' insane?
President Obama is facing new criticism from women’s rights groups for failing to nominate a woman to his core group of economic advisers.
Obama on Friday named longtime adviser Austan Goolsbee to head the Council of Economic Advisers after Christina Romer left to return to the University of California at Berkeley.
Women’s rights groups -- including the National Organization for Women (NOW) and The New Agenda -- have sharply criticized the White House for not including more women in prominent positions overseeing the economy and financial policy.
Sorry, ladies - you got hosed, like the rest of the American people. Con artists rarely abide by any type of quota system when pulling off a scam.

It's never enough. After all, if NOW were to admit that the amount of women placed in high positions by Barack Obama was sufficient, what reason would the organization have to exist? Thus, the way groups like the SPLC find racism under rock, NOW finds gender-bias in every cubicle.
