New Hampshire Republican under fire for referring to women as "vaginas" in email.

Quote:
A Republican legislator is drawing ire for referring to women as “vaginas” in an email to his House colleagues during a debate over repealing a law allowing people to use deadly force to defend themselves. In an email sent April 1, state Rep. Peter Hansen of Amherst referred to a speech given by another lawmaker, who described how he had been able to retreat without using deadly force in public.
“There were two critical ingredients missing in the illustrious stories purporting to demonstrate the practical side of retreat. Not that retreat may not be possible mind you. What could possibly be missing from those factual tales of successful retreat in VT, Germany, and the bowels of Amsterdam? Why children and vagina’s of course. While the tales relate the actions of a solitary male the outcome cannot relate to similar situations where children and women and mothers are the potential victims,” Hansen wrote, according to messages posted online this week by liberal blogger Susan Bruce.

I'm wondering if this is part of the "re-branding" efforts the Republicans are attempting to do. Won't help the Republicans one bit if they keep within their party, bigots and misogynists.

Repubs have a war on textbooks? Strange, Obama's pal, a bomber and terrorist in fact, now is a bigshot in the textbook industry. That would be Bill Ayers, of course.

It would have been better if he used the word "pussy."

Republicans must be millipedes. Why else haven't they run out of feet in which to shoot themselves?

I so want right wing policies in force, and as non-conservative (economically) as the Republicans are they would still be better than the Democrats, but the Reps just keep hurting themselves.
Thanks from excalibur
