O’Donnell calls Castle ‘unmanly,’ says he should ‘put his man-pants on’

Christine O’Donnell, the conservative challenger to Rep. Mike Castle in the Delaware GOP Senate primary next Tuesday had this to say on Mark Levin’s show in reference to Castle’s FEC complaint against her:

“You know, these are the kind of cheap, underhanded, un-manly tactics that we’ve come to expect from Obama’s favorite Republican, Mike Castle,” said O’Donnell. “You know, I released a statement today, saying Mike this is not a bake-off, get your man-pants on.”

There’s an obvious reference here to the innuendo that former O’Donnell staffers have been spreading about Castle. That alone is detestable. But where does someone who files frivolous gender discrimination lawsuits get off calling someone “unmanly?”

I’m afraid I have to share Mark Hemingway’s take on this one.
