Dem chair apologizes for calling Scott Brown a ‘girl’
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair John Walsh scrambled to apologize this afternoon hours after a convention kickoff gaffe this morning when he said U.S. Sen. Scott Brown was trying to be an “honorary girl” by folding laundry.Fauxcahontas has been using Todd Akin's stupid comments about rape to imply that - should Scott Brown be re-elected - the GOP will immediately overturn Roe vs. Wade and outlaw abortion, etc. IOW, she's not above using the same tired "TEH GOP HATES WIMMINS" bulls**t. The silence from her campaign is deafening - but then again, given her "record", why would they say anything? She's done nothing but lie through her teeth and let the lapdog media attack for her so far, and it's working - although it's hard to define "being down by 5%" as working, especially in MA...
“In the excitement of getting the convention underway and getting the message out about how important it is to re-elect President Obama and elect Elizabeth Warren, I made a statement about Scott Brown that I regret. I apologize for that remark,” said Walsh in a statement.
Walsh's comments, though, deserve further scrutiny. The DNC in general (and Taxagawea specifically) have been pushing the "GOP WAR ON WOMEN" angle even more so this campaign cycle, and then Walsh comes out with this line. Is this really what the head of the MA DNC believes? Doing laundry is women's work? That there's even such a thing, in this day and age, as "men's work" or "women's work"? Really? How positively enlightened of you, Mr. Walsh.
There's no standards like double standards, I guess. The GOP doesn't want private companies - like Catholic organizations who have a philosophical problem with it - to be forced to provide contraceptive/abortion related services, so they're anti-women. Not that they prefer not to use men with guns to force organizations to do something that goes against their values, mind you. Yet the head of the Democratic party in one of the blue-est of blue states claims that doing laundry is women's work - one of the oldest misogynist stereotypes going - and there's a big collective yawn.
No wonder y'all have Joe Biden as the intellect of the party.
That is all.
