Quoted: Michelle Rhee on speculation she's about to split for Sacramento


Michelle Rhee, 2009. (Bill O'Leary/TWP)



"It's totally sexist! ...People say, well, her husband is there, so of course she would have to move. ...What century are you living in?"



-- D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee, in an interview with DCist.com on assumptions that her upcoming marriage to Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson means she's leaving town. The two have a long-standing commuter relationship. Still no word on when or where they're marrying.

It's not sexist at all. If Rhee were the elected official, everyone would assume that Johnson would be quitting his job to move to D.C. after their marriage. HER job doesn't depend on the local voters; HIS does.

Michelle, honey, you're mistaking sexism for eagerness. Most of us can't wait to see you leave D.C.
