Pansy-bashing

Today sister Pam Spaulding has a thing or two to say about North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley's gay-baiting endorsement of Hillary Clinton , a week ahead of his state's presidential primary. Quoting the reporting of Eloise Harper of ABC News, Pam tells us:

The Governor formally expressed his support saying that there was "nothing I love more than a strong powerful woman." Easley concluded his remarks saying Clinton -- "makes Rocky Balboa look like a pansy".
Sez Pam:
Note that Hillary, who was right there with the NC gov, said nothing about his remark. Of course Easley infamously received the endorsement of Equality NC in his re-election bid, then in a debate said he'd sign a marriage amendment if it hit his desk, so why should we be surprised. And who is Hillary trying to court here -- the "traditional Southern conservative." Take the homo money and run, as it were.

Easley's lame and thoughtless attempt at humor reveals him as bigoted, that's for sure. It certainly put Clinton in an awkward spot. Having just gotten the man's endorsement, I can understand her not making an issue of his gaffe then and there.

That said, Easley would be smart to apologize and Clinton would be wise to note his apology and say his remark doesn't reflect her attitude, if that is the case.

Oh, for crying out loud, is everyone's ox so easily gored?
