North Dakota Democrats Mock Female Republican’s Breasts


Democrats have made the alleged “Republican War On Women” part of their election strategy for 2012. So much so that liberal Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp has been running web ads accusing her opponent Rick Berg of “attacks” on women.

Why do Republicans hate women, according to Democrats? Because they don’t think there should be an entitlement for the pill.

But Democrats don’t exactly have their hands clean when it comes to insulting women. First there was the ad attacking Rick Berg’s mother. Now Jim Fuglie, the former Executive Director of the North Dakota Democrat party, has posted this bit of ugliness alluding to supposed rumors about Republican candidate for Superintendent of Public Schools Kirsten Baesler’s breasts.

That’s got to be one of the sleaziest things I’ve ever seen written about a North Dakota political candidate, Democrat or Republican.

You could dismiss this as nothing more than the ill-advised ranting of a former leader of the state Democrat party. But this post was also published on a blog managed by Chad Nodland, currently representing North Dakota Democrats on the Democrat National Committee.

Nodland, you readers will remember, is the doofus who took a short clip of Heidi Heitkamp praising Barack Obama back in 2008 and turned it into a much bigger story by threatening legal action against anyone who dared use it.

I wonder if anyone will ask Heitkamp or Democrat House candidate Pam Gulleson, both of whom have made hay about the “Republican War On Women,” what they think of their past and present party leadership writing about a female Republican’s breasts?

And why is it that Democrats, who are normally so self-righteous about feminism, turn into utter chauvinists the minute they’re confronted with an attractive female Republican? Be it Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann or Kirsten Baesler?
