Clay Aiken, the Democrat candidate for Congress in North Carolina’s 2nd District, who is gay but used to try and hide it (but never fooled anyone) seems to have some, um, hostility toward the women-folk. And some tendencies toward acting out violently.
Mr. Aiken expressed a desire to punch Ann Coulter in the face, and later thought it would be okay to refer to Ann Coulter using the same vulgar anatomical reference Bill Maher uses to refer to Sarah Palin. He also became so enraged during a State of the Union address, he expressed a desire to punch members of Congress in the throat.
There was a time when these kind of threats of violence against women would have been frowned upon by polite society, but in the Democrat Party of Alan Grayson and Ed Schultz, vulgarity and threats of violence aren’t just accepted, they’re expected.
If a Republican were to express a desire to punch Chris Hayes in the face, that would be a different matter altogether.
