So our recently-switched-over “Democratic” senator from PA tells Moon Unit Bachmann to “act like a lady” after she interrupts him while spouting her ridiculous RNC-approved talking points that have no basis in reality (here).
And as a result, the feminist hue and cry begins against Specter and he apologizes, even though he was right to tell Bachmann to be quiet and let him finish.
I’ll tell you what – here is the clip of the exchange between Specter and Bachmann. I’ll let you decide who’s right and who’s wrong.
In keeping with typical wingnut behavior, Bachmann is totally rude and petulant, and Specter called her out over it. Good for him. To me, the “takeway” from this clip, though, is the fact that Specter really isn’t able to keep up with the rat-a-tat-a-tat of what passes for political discourse in this country anymore (typified by right-wing talk radio).
So, acting like a typical Dem, Specter apologizes even though he was right.
What a joke.
