Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll, who has a history of, umm, interesting comments, made her presence known at the Clinton rally in Pittsburgh yesterday by grabbing the microphone as it was being handed to President Clinton and claiming that several prominent PA Democrats “hate women”:
Getting elected in this country is such a total pain in the ass- everyone of your supporters is a potential liability, so you have to tap dance through a minefield of idiocy. At any rate, my father called to tell me about this one, and according to him, Lt. Gov. Knoll went on to state that she had “loafed” with Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea for 25 years, and later on, when asked to respond, Bill stated he had never “loafed” with “that woman,” which I thought that was a pretty amusing response. For some reason, the only video I can find is the one above without the “loafing” bit.
I really feel sorry for anyone running to have to go through this crap.
