GOPers like a little misogyny with their spin

One of the GOP's talking points regarding the Plame affair is that she was just a "desk jockey" and not a real covert agent. Go here to read a former CIA officer explaining why this is (big surprise) total bullshit.

At the Liberal Avenger, Pepper, who blogs here, explained an additional aspect of this particular nugget of spin:
The nutbags are also making the "desk jockey" argument because Plame is a woman. They say "desk job," hoping it will trigger the word "secretary." "She was just a little lady with a little desk job making coffee for the big CIA guys who did all the legwork ..." When I hear women making the "desk job" argument, I almost go out of my gourd with rage. It's like blaming Plame for having a desk.
