Just when we think we’ve risen above the petty thin skins and oversensitivities of the easily ruffled left, Republicans get all bent hearing what they want to hear instead of what was said.
A comment by a strategist for Gov. Rick Perry that the Republican Party shouldn’t act like a brothel to lure new voters has infuriated prominent GOP women in Texas and given Perry’s primary rival, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, fuel for their election fight.
Perry is trying to distance himself from the remark, published in The Dallas Morning News, by consultant David Carney, who said he agreed the Republican Party needed to attract new voters. But, he added, “that doesn’t mean you take your principles and throw them out the door and become a whorehouse and let anybody in who wants to come in, regardless.”
Former Republican National Committee member Denise McNamara is leading a group of GOP women demanding that Perry apologize for and repudiate the comment.
Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with what Carney said and those Republican women creating all this drama need find something else worthy of the hysterics.
