Can you believe the nerve of this misogynistic asswipe?
ARMEY: I’m so damn glad that you can never be my wife because I surely wouldn’t have to listen to that prattle from you every day.
WALSH: Boy, that makes two of us sir. That was really an outstanding comment.
ARMEY: That’s what I’m talking about — she’s making a political malarkey here.
Dick Armey must belong to the “He-Man-Woman-Hater Club.” But his entire display of rudeness should offend any person of civility, regardless of their sex. And at no point does he apologize for what he said. And this is what the Republican Party has to offer as an alternative? A “Shut up, you hag!” approach to political discourse? Is it any wonder they lost so big in the last elections? As Bob Herbert said later, this man owes Joan Walsh, and the viewers of Hardball an apology for his offensive remarks. And it better not be one of “to anyone who was offended by what I said, I’m sorry.” This time, the apology has to show that he understand why what he specifically said and did was wrong. Anything less is not a true apology.
