Having no life is a compliment! Really.

Ed Rendell was caught with a hot mike saying this yesterday about Janet Napolitano being Secretary of homeland security.

“Janet’s perfect for that job,” Rendell says. “Because for that job, you have to have no life. Janet has no family. Perfect. She can devote, literally, 19, 20 hours a day to it.”

Are we sure this wasn't Biden? Heh.

RightPundits said this:

Governor Janet Napolitano is a childless, single woman.
His press secretary Chuck Ardo is cleaning up
the mess by saying that “Rendell meant no disrespect to Napolitano and would have made the same comment if the candidate was a man.”

So either this was a gaffetastic, or in Governor Ed Rendell’s mind, not having a life really is a great compliment. How ever you choose to look at it, sexism in the Democratic Party is certainly alive, well and rampant.
