High Risk Radio: "Fat Lesbian"
The comment was made during a radio broadcast of a debate of candidates for Mass. governor. Reports AP:
The host, who calls himself the "Independent Man," said he made the remark because he was exasperated that [Green-Rainbow party candidate Grace] Ross and independent candidate Christy Mihos were eating up time during a debate earlier in the week that included Republican candidate Kerry Healey and Democrat Deval Patrick.
He said it was then that he told listeners he wished someone would "tell the fat lesbian to shut up."
Would "scrawny lesbian" have gotten him fired? Maybe. Would "piggy country club Republican?" "Greedy breeder?" Never.
