National Organization For Women Almost Get It Right
The National Organization For Women’s endorsement of Jerry Brown was on Sean’s mind as he kicked off Thursday’s show. In California, The National Organization of Women endorsed gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown just a few days after he called opponent Meg Whitman a “whore”. Isn’t this an organization that is opposed to demeaning women? “It looked for a split second that the National Organization For Women was actually going to do something right. It looked like they were going to live up to their name and demand that Jerry Brown fire the aide that called Meg Whitman a ‘whore.’ NOW must have realized that Brown is a liberal and he supports abortion so therefore he’s entitled to use abusive language in anyway or at any time he wants. I wonder what NOW would say if my buddy Don Imus said this, or if I said it or if anybody in the Tea Party said it? What would the reaction be?” Sean wondered.

Christine O’Donnell
Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell joined Sean and discussed her second debate against her challenger Chris Coons. Sean felt O’Donnell displayed the perfect balance between being aggressive and laying out her agenda. “I feel very good about last night’s debate. I was able to mention the charges of how he created sweetheart pension deals for his buddies, created slush funds out of which he spent $50,000 on men’s fashion shows – yet he still managed to raise taxes!” O’Donnell told Sean. Sean played the audio from a new ad from the O’Donnell camp which calls Coons “The Taxman.” {Watch the video here}. O’Donnell also expressed her disappointment with the NRSC (the official party group working to elect Republicans to the US Senate) which has lent very little support to her campaign.

Meg Whitman
On Tuesday, California gubernatorial candidates Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman squared off for their final debate before Election Day. Moderator Tom Brokaw asked Brown about the telephone recording in which one of his staff, unaware he was being recorded, called Whitman a “whore.” Brown made several excuses for the name-calling, even wondering aloud whether it was legal to tape his “private” conversation, but ultimately delivered a half-hearted apology to Whitman {Watch Brown’s insincere apology here}. Meg Whitman joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline and reacted to Brown’s apology. “I was stunned really by what I thought was his insensitivity to what that word means to women and to frankly all Americans. So I was surprised,” Whitman told Sean. “It’s not just me, it’s the people of California who deserve better than the typical politics of slurs and personal attacks and that’s exactly what this was,” said Whitman.
