Southerland doin' some man talkin'.
last checked in on
Florida Republican Rep. Steve Southerland, he was holding special, men-only meetings, where "the after dinner whiskey and cigars will be smooth & the issues to discuss are many." So his invitees should "tell the misses not to wait up" because they had real man stuff to talk about.
Since that man-only meeting was leaked, Southerland has been getting some heat from Florida Democrats and opponent Gwen Graham, the daughter of former U.S. Sen. and Gov. Bob Graham. They point out that having men-only whiskey and cigar fundraisers—not to mention how it was couched in the invitation—is grossly sexist. Wait 'til they get a load of Southerland's reply.
Asked to respond to the Democrats' criticism that he's anti-women, Southerland laughed and said: "I live with five women. That's all I'm saying. I live with five women. Listen: Has Gwen Graham ever been to a lingerie shower? Ask her. And how many men were there?"
If living with women makes you a feminist, I guess Ray Rice is one too. And "lingerie shower"? Really, Congressman? How many women-only lingerie fundraisers is Graham holding? Yeah, that would be none.
But hey, thanks for playing, Rep. Southerland. Your sexist bullshit definitely puts you in the running for the crown in this week's War on Women.
