Women, the $10 Bill, and the GOP Field
Yes, the following is not exactly all that consequential, but why blog if you can’t share your opinion on the inconsequential?
Via the WSJ: Republican Debate: Rosa Parks Top Pick for $10 Bill
Some of the votes:
Rand Paul: Susan B. Anthony
Mike Huckabee: My wife
Marco Rubio: Rosa Parks
Ted Cruz: Keep Hamilton. Put Rosa Parks on the $20
Ben Carson: My mother
Donald Trump: My daughter, Ivanka, or Rosa Parks
Jeb Bush: Margaret Thatcher
Scott Walker: Clara Barton
Carly Fiorina: Don’t change it
John Kasich: Mother Theresa
Chris Christie: Abigail Adams
Couple of quick thoughts:
1. I totally agree with Ted Cruz (a sentence I am unlikely to type ever again): Hamilton should be on the currency (arguably after Washington, he makes the most sense to be on our money).
2. Jeb! can’t think of a single American female? (Ditto Kasich).
3. What’s with the flippant “my mother” answers—seriously, guys? (And Trump should probably just not comment on his daughter, lest he remind people of this).
