California GOP Orders the KFC Hillary Special: 2 Fat Thighs, 2 Small Breasts and a Left Wing

California GOP Buttons

The California GOP convention that promised to “rebuild the party from the ground up” and address the concerns of women took a slightly different route and decided to hand out sexist buttons insulting Hillary Clinton.

After a disastrous election cycle that included Republican candidates discussing “legitimate rape” and labeling pregnancies resulting from rape a “gift from God,” the Republican National Committee urged the GOP to take a step back and really think about women’s issues. After all, they have binders full of them – why not try to win a few of their votes? So the RNC encouraged Republican candidates to “use language that addresses concerns that are on women’s minds in order to let them know we are fighting for them.

Organizers of the California GOP’s fall convention took this message to heart and set up panels at the convention which included “Women on the Right,” “California Federation of Republican Women,” and “Grassroots 101: Latino Engagement.”

So far so good. Then came the buttons…

Buttons were handed out that read “KFC Hillary Special: 2 Fat Thighs, 2 Small Breasts … Left Wing.”

Sigh. It didn’t do the Australian Liberal Party any good when they did the same thing to Julia Gillard and her big red box, and it certainly won’t do the California GOP any good.

After San Francisco Chronicle reporter Carla Marinucci tweeted the picture of the “popular” buttons, Republicans scrambled to remove them from the convention.

2016 will be an interesting election year…. And by interesting I mean super misogynistic. Just do everyone a favour, GOP, and remember this quote:

“You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman’s looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot.”  – Erin Gloria Ryan
