Grays Harbor Democrat Commish Candidate Al Smith: Gender Troglodyte?

Oh, fine. Just what Grays Harbor needs: a troglodyte on the county commission.

Remember folks, this coming from a candidate backed by the same party that constantly carps about the Republican “War on Women.”



noun \ˈträ-glə-ˌdīt\

: a person who lived in a cave in prehistoric times

 Full Definition of TROGLODYTE
1:  a member of any of various peoples (as in antiquity) who lived or were reputed to live chiefly in caves.
2:  a person characterized by reclusive habits or outmoded or reactionary attitudes

Examples of TROGLODYTE

  1. <the troglodytes who believed that women had no place in the military, except perhaps as nurses>

The best the DemoLib Gal Pal Outrage Machine will be able to muster on this one is to rev up the “it was a just a joke” defense – or blame Smith’s response on a bad YouTube video.  Maybe they’ll send up another single-person sieg heil candidate slate not-so-cleverly disguised as a three-person slate?

While we’re on the subject, what would happen if Smith’s “That’s a woman for ya” comment, punctuated with a smirk, head shake and rolled eyes, came from a Republican candidate?

So, Grays Harbor, whaddya think? Innocent slip of the tongue or real deal gender troglodyte?

Meanwhile, what’re the odds the Grays Harbor Democrat Central Committee will publicly repudiate the sexist attitudes displayed by their candidate and withdraw their support? What does it tell you if Democrats do neither?

How’s that ice rink in hell coming?
