Kate Sheppard has written a piece on presumptive Republican nominee John McCain and his misogynistic tendencies, both personal and political, here. Here are some highlights:
- The quote where McCain calls his wife both a cunt and a trollup.
- When McCain voted to mandate that SCHIP (the State Children’s Health Insurance Program) cover fetuses, but voted against expanding coverage to low-income women and children at least 6 times.
- McCain is asked what his family would do if his daughter became pregnant and he offers “It’s a private family matter” as an answer, not seeming to know that this is, of course, the very definition of pro-choice.
