Did I mention that the challenger was female?

A Republican lawmaker in Minnesota is under fire for snatching the microphone away from his Democratic rival during a debate.

Four-term state Rep. Duane Quam was debating political newcomer Jamie Mahlberg of the DFL, the Minnesota affiliate of the Democratic Party, on Monday when the incident occurred.

The two had been passing a single microphone back and forth, sharing their thoughts on a wide variety of issues. However, as Mahlberg was answering a question about linking education funding to the Consumer Price Index, Quam raised a card indicating he would like a rebuttal. Instead of waiting for Mahlberg to pass him the mic, he seized it from her hands, causing her to recoil in surprise.

After Quam was finished speaking, he tried to pass the mic back to Mahlberg, but she literally wasn’t having it. When she didn’t take the microphone from him, he tossed it in front of her.

You know I think that this video sums up the GOP attitude toward women pretty well, don’t you?

    $natch? “Pence came to Charlotte as the guest of the Women for Mark Harris Bus Tour,” “We’re running to save the babies.”
    “The road to the majority leads right through North Carolina. This seat, this race, it is critical to keeping the majority in CONgress.”
    ” there are “no family values” in the Democratic Party platform.” “Mark Harris will be the same man in Washington that he has been for decades here in the Charlotte area.”<RiiiggghhhttT

    And the Democrats should use this as campaign attack ads but they won’t.

    We need more Democrats like Eric Holder. When they go low, WE KICK THEM!

    Then watch the video of some senator stumping for Kemp snatch the iPhone away from a student asking him about his support of Kemp.

    Republican party values: rudeness, beligerence, bigotry, racism, misogyny, sexual assault, THEFT. Those aren’t *my* family values.
