Roll Call publishes stupid, sexist post on Janet Yellen's wardrobe
"At least we know her mind won’t be preoccupied with haute couture," Roll Call writes

Somebody spot Roll Call's Warren Rojas a clue.
In a profoundly frivolous and sexist post over at Roll Call, Rojas notes that Yellen wore similar outfits to two recent high-profile events. This is news, apparently.
The post's title is "Somebody Spot Janet Yellen Some New Threads," and it's terrible.
"Whether Janet Yellen, President Barack Obama’s latest pick to head the Federal Reserve, proves to be the financial genius our sputtering economy so desperately needs, remains to be seen," Rojas writes.
"At least we know her mind won’t be preoccupied with haute couture," he continues. Because women usually only think about fashion, right? Ugh.
