Janis Baird Sontany (D) on Republican Women - "You Have to Lift Their Skirts to Find Out if They Are Women. You Sure Can’t Find Out by How They Vote"

Shall we play the game of 'what if a Republican did it'? Think of the outcry if a republican even insinuated that democratic women all where skirts. Now add in that they were supposed to vote a certain way to prove their gender.

"We can now add Tennessee State Democrat legislator Janis Baird Son­tany of Nashville to the roster of abusers. Here’s what she said about her GOP opponents at a Democrat Party breakfast over the weekend:

State Republican Chairman Chris Devaney today denounced as “petty and insulting” a Democratic legislator’s statement about her Republican women colleagues.

“You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women. You sure can’t find out by how they vote,” said Rep. Janis Baird Sontany, D-Nashville.

The remark at a Saturday Democratic breakfast was initially reported by blogger Dru Smith Fuller. Sontany acknowledged the statement when asked and described it as “a glib, off-the-cuff remark” that “was inappropriate on my part.”

Sontany has issued the standard, non-apology apology “if I offended anyone.”"
