Sexism alive and well for Democrats

According to the Boston Globe Democrat John Walsh believes that doing laundry is a woman's job: "The chairman of the Massachusetts Democratic Party, rallying state delegates before the Democratic National Convention, today said that Senator Scott Brown tried to portray himself as “an honorary girl” by folding laundry in a TV commercial targeting women voters." Seems that John Walsh forgets that this is 2012 and not 1950. Interesting coming from a man who pretends to be all about women's rights. Actually it is even more insulting that he used the term 'girl' in his politically correct world isn't it? So much for the party that likes to claim they aren't sexist. Walsh will fit in well with other sexist Democrats at the convention.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz made a sexist fool out of herself when she called the females speakers at the Republican National Convention 'shiny packages'. Apparently to Wasserman-Schultz a former Secretary of State, three sitting Governors, a Mayor, an Attorney General, a U.S. Senator and a former Lt. Govenor are nothing more than shiny packages to have on parade. Wasserman-Schultz has the typical mentality of the loons at NOW who aren't feminists but another arm of the left wing.

And then there's Bill Clinton (accused of rape; settled a sexual assault claim; multiple sexual assault claims; and predator of young interns while in the White House). It's clear misogyny lives long and prospers when it comes to Democrats. The party that tried to accuse Republicans of enacting a 'War On Women' clearly hasn't sent the message to their leaders that sexism isn't OK. The fact that Bill Clinton is the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention says all you need to know about Democrats and their true thoughts on women.

Note that these are not political pundits like Juan Williams or Bill Maher making stupid, sexist comments. These are people who represent Democrats from their own states and for the country. Democrats and women deserve better.
