Well, we already knew he liked to hang out with fundraisers who make rape jokes. But we didn’t know he liked to make them himself. Now we do.
Mike Lux of Open Left has a pitch-perfect writeup of this (and he mentions me! That kind boy):
As Cliff Schecter reported in his book, he calls his wife names I was taught never to say, ever. He is happy to schedule fundraisers with hosts who love to joke about rape. Now we learn he loves to joke about rape himself. He has one of the worst records in Congress on women’s issues, and wants to appoint more folks like Alito to the Supreme Court. Are there still any people who call themselves feminists who are planning to vote for this guy because Obama beat Hillary?
And to my friends in the media: I know McCain is your beloved, but where are you on stories like this? If Obama had ever said something like this- hell, if Obama’s minister or doctor or neighbor down the block had ever said something like this you guys would be all over it. This is an important story.
I can’t add much to this well-reasoned analysis. For McCain to do well with women voters Barack Obama is seriously going to have to run one of the dumbest campaigns on record.
