When women need more stress: Jay Townsend is a conservative consultant and the current spokesman for Rep. Nan Hayworth of New York. He suggested that we “hurl some acid on female democratic Senators who won’t abide the mandates they want to impose on the private sector.” Yeah, you read that correctly. Hurl some acid. Are those words acceptable to be used by a spokesman of anything? While Hayworth’s campaign manager played off the playing-up of the comment as an attack from the media, let’s be clear: As people shouldn’t suggest we place gay men and lesbian women behind an electric fence until they die out, they can’t suggest we throw acid on women. Either learn how to make better “jokes” or butt out. — Sami @ SFB

Nothing surprises us anymore, but we’re legitimately surprised this guy still has a job. “Hurl some acid”? Really? Acid? Like this?
