Equality In Action

From Politico:

Florida Republican Congressman Allen West,  a Tea Party favorite, doesn’t have any problem treating his female colleagues  as equals. Democrat Congresswoman and DNC head Debbie Wasserman-Schultz found that out recently when he sent her a fiery email in response to her criticism of him on the House floor,  which her office promptly leaked to the press:

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

The press of course, is aghast at West’s “tirade.” I wonder which is worst, that he offered a verbal backhand to a woman who is known for her take no prisoners approach and political hyperbole, or that he refuses to apologize or back away from his remarks.

This is what the feminists claim to want. Equal treatment. Well, Ms. Schultz got it. Already, her supporters are throwing around the word “sexist.”
