The New York Sun declares that Obama is waging a war on women. Okay, a war on some women. All right, more accurately, a war on the top 2-3% of female earners who marry the top 2-3% of male earners and then are forced to quit their high paying job because of a theoretical 54% marginal tax rate on every dollar they earn over $250,000 combined if they live in New York City and their husbands insist on remaining the sole breadwinners of the house and they don’t take any of the numerous tax deductions available to them.

It’s basically the fiscal version of firebombing the NOW offices, okay?
