Michael Tomasky complains:
Twice this week now, Hillary Clinton has stood there smiling like the Cheshire Cat as the governor of North Carolina used the word "pansy" and then as a union leader in the same state, who more famously referred to her "testicular fortitude...."
OMG! HRC stood there while the governor called someone a pansy?! Why, she's benefiting from the standard Right Wing Talking Points!
Well, not exactly:
Gov. Mike Easley (D) raised some eyebrows when he said Clinton was so determined she made “Rocky Balboa look like a pansy.”
And could it be that a comment imputing "testicular fortitude" to a female candidate might actually have been intended to have a jocular effect? Nah, couldn't be.
