Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn has suddenly become a crusader for oppressed women everywhere. Appearing on CNN's Larry King Live
last night, she decried what she called Barack Obama's pattern of sexist behavior. From the transcript
: All right, where are we going to go, Congresswoman, with this -- with this lipstick and pig thing?
: I think what has happened with this is that women are looking at a pattern of behavior. When you take the remark in context of the campaign, and everything is taken in context and relationship to something else -- you go back and he called a reporter sweetie during the primary, had to call the reporter and apologize for that. He passed over two good women for the VP spot, one, Senator Clinton, the other, Governor Sebelius. Then you get to this today. I think it's a pattern of conduct that the American women are responding to. And we're seeing the negative responses that they have brought forward today.
