That guy looks like a coneheaded douche.

But trashing women politicians for playing video games is still ok right?

Is she hot?

Well obviously.  But isolated from that, is implying that a lady has the physical ability to be a stripper in poor taste?  I would say no; some of those girls are in pretty good shape.  I personally would kill myself if I tried to pull off a inverted catapilar climb - how about you?

I am not coordinated in the slightest.

Though I've dedicated exactly no research to it, I'm betting from her name being 'Jean' that the woman in question is old enough to be angry that she's not young / attractive anymore. She sure took offense to the stripper t-shirt.

Yes, that is in poor taste.

The bio from her website says she's got a 26 year old daughter.  I think she'd easily qualify as a GMILF.

"Obviously I didn't make it or wear it," said Jerram, a Democrat, "But made an error in judgment by allowing the photograph to be taken."

I hate weasel worded non apologies like this.  "I'm not really sorry, but I have to pretend that I am so here is a statement that sounds similar to an apology, but isn't one."

He's also up for re-election: http://www.chrisjerram.com/. Funny, no mention of his non-appology on the campaign web-site.  Having two daughters, I would think he would know better.

So these days, "photo" means Photoshopped fake instead of actual photo?

Or maybe she really posed for it.

You'd think the article would make it clear.

Also from TFA:

"It was offensive and over-the-top political satire and I feel bad about it," said Jerram. "I apologized to Jean and the women of our community."
...
Jerram says he will offer the apology face-to-face on Tuesday -- when the two get together for the city council meeting.


But yeah, douche move. I just don't get how idiots think that a female politician's physical appearance is ever a valid comment on anything. I mean, you hardly ever see politicians of any gender attacking a male politician over their physical appearance (besides racism, that is). You get the occasional Chris Christie tub-o-lard joke or John Boehner oompa-loompa reference, but it's not like there's an instant poll for any male pol over junk size or cute butt-itude or whatever. Yet moron still trot stuff like this out as if it's a valid campaign tactic.

Well, was she actually a stripper? The article didn't specify.

If by "occasional" you mean "almost every farking time they are talked about", then yeah. If this lady isn't tough enough to get over something so stupid then she has no business making public policy.

The beauty of stupidity and bad judgement is that they have an inherent ability to reveal themselves.

I bet she is all upset because she thought somebody found out about the stripper pole in her bedroom.

Relax lady, we don't care what goes on in your bedroom.
