An Army of Cindys

One of the side effects of a blog suddenly getting a lot more traffic then it used to in an increased number of e-mail to deal with and a whole lot more comments to answer and think about.

One of those commentators was Cindy who had this to say about the “daughter being available” business:

That is something my dad would do. In fact, he’s done a lot worse than that. I don’t care much, and I’m sure his daughters don’t, either. If your dad speaks in public (mine’s a preacher), you kinda get used to being poked at that way. People need to lighten up.

Now I don’t know Cindy and it’s unlikely we will ever meet but my apolitical wife had the same reaction. I’ll wager a lot of sons and daughters across the country of every political persuasion had this same reaction.

In a world were 12 year old girls are sold for cows and 13 year old girls get 90 lashes for taking a cell phone to school an attempt to portray Senator Brown’s remarks as misogyny doesn’t rate and that Army of Cindys out there knows it.

The worst thing a political party or movement can do is to lose credibility with the people they are trying to persuade. When you make a charge that regular people recognize as bogus the fall away begins.

Update: Reaganite Republican links thanks: American Glob doesn’t but I felt like linking to him anyway.

Update 2: Robert Stacy Links me all over. The fact that some people are making what they are of this say a whole lot more about them then it does about Scott Brown.
