Cathie's Choice: New Yorkers Comment On Cathie

Some very interesting comments on the latest Cathie Black gaffe in which she suggested birth control as a solution for school overcrowding and compared "tough decisions" she has to make on school funding and placement to sending children to a Nazi death camp:

A word of advice, Cath. You need to build up a modicum of credibility before you start with the wisecracks. Despite what you may believe, you have none when it comes to the educational system.

...

Well, what do you expect from a Waspish Park Ave matron? It's just a matter of time before her views on eugenics become public.

...

Come on, you guys. She was absolutely right. A little birth control would have been a great thing. Pity her own parents didn't use it.

...

what a sweetheart! she reminds me of Cruella DeVille.

"All right. Keep the little beasts. Do what you like with them. Drown them, for all I care."

I like it - Cruella Cathie Black.

I think we have a new name for her.

Hey, Cruella, pass me the flask...

6. When I first read her comments the other day I thought it was a joke
I had to read it over about 4 times before I realized she had actually said this.

This lady is going to be a hoot. And we thought Michelle Rhee was inappropriate! LOL

7. Is this woman under the impression
people here aren't using birth control?

I believe that overall we are just below the replacement rate in births in this country. Our population continues to grow for two reasons: net immigration, and the very large number of women of childbearing age.

9. I got a couple of questions for this product of an inadequate media.
Has she never tried to obtain a birth control prescription from a pharmacist who refuses because it isn't in keeping with how they express their faith?

Is there a chance she owns stock in Microsoft?

RECOMMENDED.

10. Remember: she is enthusiastically supported by the Obama administration.
That's the scary part.
