GOP Lawmaker Suggests 'Sweetie' Opponent Stay In The Nursery

Ohio Republican State Senate Majority Leader Tom Patton has not come a long way, Baby.

This Ain't Gettin' Any Better, Jim Bob.

Ohio Republican State Senate Majority Leader Tom Patton has not come a long way, Baby.

He took to the electric radio and had this to say about his Republican primary opponent, who is a 30 year old mother of two.

“The gal that’s running against me is a 30-year-old, you know, mom, mother of two infants,” said Patton, a 62-year-old Republican from Strongsville, in a recent radio interview. “And I don’t know if anybody explained to her we’ve got to spend three nights a week in Columbus. So, how does that work out for you?”

Not to leave one damn doubt that he’s a pig and butthead, he also refers to her as “Sweetie” and “young gal” more than once.

She was mad, of course, and called it “insulting and discriminatory.”

Tom sobered up later on and said his sass “appears to have been misunderstood.”

Sure, Jim Bob, gal is such a misunderstood word.

You know, I get why Tom Patton is a Republican. I get that. I do.

I do not, however, understand why his opponent is a Republican. (This is a primary challenge, the first he has faced since 2002.) What self respecting hooter-toter would want to be a member of a party who thinks that’s how women should be treated?

And how do I know that’s what Republicans think?

This. This is how I know.

Yep. That’s how I know.
