Senator Vitter suggests Rachel Maddow only looked like a woman "a long time ago"

Senator Vitter suggests Rachel Maddow only looked like a woman "a long time ago"

Oh, what fun!

On a right wing radio station this morning, Senator David Vitter appeared to suggest that MSNBC host Rachel Maddow only looked like a woman "a long time ago," a crack that was greeted by uproarious laughter by the radio hosts.

The exchange came on Rush Radio 99.5 in New Orleans this morning, during some banter about how they all looked a long time ago. The hosts suggested Vitter should produce images of his youth, and one brought up Maddow's high school yearbook photo, which has been making the rounds on the Internet, joking that she looked "like a woman" in the picture.

Vitter laughed and said: "Must have been a long time ago." Here's the full exchange:

MALE HOST: I wonder if Senator Vitter is ever going to post, like, maybe the video of the first time he was on the floor of the Senate. If I have to show the way I looked the first time I was on TV, you should do that too.

VITTER: We should go further back than that, how about high school yearbook?

MALE HOST: Oh yeah.

VITTER: De La Salle marching band.

MALE HOST: That'd be cool. Well you know, with Rachel Maddow they had that picture of her...

FEMALE HOST: Looking like a woman.

MALE HOST: Yeah it was really bizarre.

VITTER: : Must have been a long time ago.

ALL THREE:

Hmm, I guess this means Maddow probably won't be the target of Vitter's extramarital charms anytime soon...

4. Wonder if we could find a diapered baby picture of Vitter. Then we could all have another laugh.

24. Indeed she does, sir!
Not to mention that her appearance is not far from the cultural norms of intelligent, educated women in her half of Massachusetts, and in Northern New England.
When some of the fairer flowers of the South arrive in these parts, they appear as exotic as orchids - and about as fragile.

40. It's mean to stereotype people on their appearances
You're defending Maddow by putting down Southern women who can be intelligent, educated and appear very feminine. That's not far from what Vitter was doing.

I'm Southern, and fragile for reasons of health.

43. FWIW
By fragile, I meant ill-equipped for the world they had landed in. I.E. $10K+ in diamonds in the pits at a drag race, high heels on the street & the winter, lacquered hairdos in an industrial plant. These were intelligent, and quite nice ladies.
And obvious makeup (particularly in the daytime)in the cultural circles I mentioned is simply not done.
I'm sorry that you are fragile because of your health - but I doubt if you enhance your fragility to meet cultural norms.

28. and, if she did not, it really is no business of Mr. Vitter's
and I'm not sure what makes him think she's supposed to seek his approval. But this is a concept that Republicans struggle with.

15. every day
I am more and more disgusted by the people that supposedly represent the people and make life decisions for us.

From Merriam Webster:
Entry Word: disgust
Function: noun
Meaning: a dislike so strong as to cause stomach upset or queasiness
Synonyms: aversion, distaste, loathing, nausea, repugnance, repulsion, revulsion
Related Words: abhorrence, abomination, execration, hate, hatred; disapproval, disfavor, disinclination, dislike, disliking, displeasure

All of these apply to how I have come to feel about many vocal people speaking for the Republicans...

30. Rachel is beautiful. Stunningly beautiful. WTF???
That comment would be absurd coming from anyone. Coming from him it's doubly pathetic. His office should be picketed by people carrying tall poles topped with diapers.

33. GOPs beauty queens:: Ann Coulter, Meg whitman, Bachmann
Failin Palin, Sharron, etc
They got some nerve to pick on Rachel

must be jealousy

The GOP hates any person smarter than them....it shows...everytime...all they do is criticize and be cynical

as Bullies, they love to make troubles

35. And Rachel doesn't even have to glob makeup on to be gorgeous.
Or spend hours on her hair. She's just that way naturally. You're right, she's smarter than all those women put together PLUS that Vitter jerk.

This really pisses me right off.

Of course she looks like a woman. That scares the hell out of him.
