Wow, I Agree With Bearded Marxist Coons and NOW

by the Left Coast Rebel

Politics makes for strange bedfellows, at least once in a while this afternoon.

For once, I agree with a Marxist named Coons.

Here's why:

Delaware Democrat Chris Coons on Friday denounced as “cowardly” an anonymous Gawker post from a man claiming a drunken encounter with Republican Christine O’Donnell

“The Gawker item is despicable, cowardly and has absolutely no value at all to any Delaware voters,” Coons spokesman Daniel McElhatton told POLITICO. “We denounce it with great vigor.”

Also, every clock is right, at least once a day in a blue moon:

Sexist, misogynist attacks against women have no place in the electoral process, regardless of a particular candidate’s political ideology.

Today the tabloid website Gawker published an anonymous piece titled “I Had A One-Night Stand With Christine O’Donnell” that takes the routine sexual degradation of women candidates to a disgusting new low. NOW repudiates Gawker’s decision to run this piece. It operates as public sexual harassment. And like all sexual harassment, it targets not only O’Donnell, but all women contemplating stepping into the public sphere.

I don't think that the Gawker piece is 'sexual harassment,' but rather, crass and crude, incredibly shoddy journalism, fit for print on the cover of the National Enquirer and not even worthy of discussion.

Even more, it's just such a stupid piece of slander filth that no one would be talking about and would never be directed at, much less discussed; if the object of slander were anything but a woman right of center.

That, is the sexism of the leftwing.
