COOKIES!?!



North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) offered a plate of cookies Tuesday to a group of mostly female demonstrators protesting a new law he signed Monday restricting abortion access.

McCrory went outside the gates of the governor's mansion, cookies in hand, and pointed at protester Jamie Sohn. "'These are for you. God bless you, God bless you, God bless you,'" she quoted him as saying.

The protesters did not appreciate the gesture. They returned the chocolate chip cookies to the gate with a sign that read, "Will take women's health over cookies!"

They also saw the move as sexist, chanting, "Hey Pat, that was rude. You wouldn't give cookies to a dude."

1. I can tell just by looking that they're not very good, too.

They're flat and over baked. Probably used margarine rather than butter. Now, that is dissing your recipients.

3. They look store-bought to me.

And you offer cookies to a fussy child, not to an adult who is upset with you for good reason. Very condescending and demeaning. And don't tell me it wasn't intended that way. Nobody is that clueless, not even a Republican politician.

2. Love the chant!

Sorry, governor, these aren't kindergartners.
