From Michelle Malkin:
“We can now add Tennessee State Democrat legislator Janis Baird Sontany of Nashville to the roster of abusers. Here’s what she said about her GOP opponents at a Democrat Party breakfast over the weekend:
State Republican Chairman Chris Devaney today denounced as “petty and insulting” a Democratic legislator’s statement about her Republican women colleagues.
“You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women. You sure can’t find out by how they vote,” said Rep. Janis Baird Sontany, D-Nashville.
The remark at a Saturday Democratic breakfast was initially reported by blogger Dru Smith Fuller. Sontany acknowledged the statement when asked and described it as “a glib, off-the-cuff remark” that “was inappropriate on my part.”
Sontany has issued the standard, non-apology apology “if I offended anyone.”
That was a mistake on Sontany’s part and she’s admitted it. Maybe she realizes that if Dems need to look under GOP women’s skirts to see if they’re really women (because of the way they vote), the obvious next step is to check Democratic men to see if they’re really men.
