Haley Barbour's Aide Makes Sexist & Tsunami Jokes; Guess Which One Gets Him Fired?

And he deserved to be fired for joking about people who have lost their homes and their families in the horrific ongoing disaster. But it's always interesting to note how little the sexism matters in this deeply misogynist culture:

One such comment was that Otis Redding's hit single, "(Sittin' on) The Dock of the Bay" is "not a big hit in Japan right now."

Another email was about Reno's 1993 confirmation as the first woman attorney general. "It took longer to confirm her gender than to confirm her law license."
