The 2012 election season is now in full swing, and not just for the Presidential race.
New York Democratic Senator Kristen Gillibrand was facing a challenge from Marc Cenedella, a Republican and founder of Ladders.com. He just pulled out of the race, according to New York Magazine:
Cenedella’s pulling out in the wake of an Times article that exposed entries on his blog which, among other things, advocated for a national steak and blow job day and considered the difference between sexy and skanky.
I’m glad to know that kind of sexist vitriol has such a significant impact on his candidacy. Sadly, the same standards don’t seem to apply to the Presidential GOP primary.
