Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair apologizes for calling Scott Brown a girl
Earlier today Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair John Walsh called Scott Brown an “honorary girl” for appearing in a campaign ad folding clothes.
he said Brown “spent a couple million dollars folding towels on TV to prove he’s an honorary girl.”
Needless to say, Scott Brown took exception to this remark:
It seems Professor Warren and her spokesman can’t decide if they are just too good to fold laundry, or if household chores are suitable only for women. Professor Warren should apologize for her own elitist remark, and denounce her spokesman’s insulting comments suggesting folding laundry is a ‘girl’s’ job,”
It sends a very bad message,” the senator said. “Professor Warren and her supporters are demeaning people that are just trying to do the best thing they can for their families. It’s sad. It’s a sign of desperation.
Shortly thereafter, realizing his heinous mistake, John Walsh issued an apology:
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,
In a candid moment John Walsh was swept up in the excitement and made the mistake of letting his true misogynistic feelings known; folding clothes is woman’s work beneath the dignity of a man and for that he has apologized.
It seems to me that while he was attempting to attack Scott Brown he let the world know that he believes a woman’s place is in the home, barefoot and pregnant, folding clothes and making dinner while her man is out on the streets earning money, and for that he cannot apologize because he showed us who he really is. And yet the Democrats claim it is the Republicans who want to push women back into the dark ages with a fictitious war on women?
It has been said in the past that a gaffe is when a politician actually tells the truth and I think this is a case where a politician let his true feelings known to anyone who was listening.
Somewhere in Missouri Todd Akin is smiling…..
