According to politics blog, The Washington Scene, guests at this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference will attend a party on Friday night where guests can take a whack at a pinata shaped like Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The Pelosi pinata will allegedly be filled with candy, bills and “favorite Pelosi sayings.”
According to Mary Christopher, outreach coordinator for another conservative political action committee, “We’re hoping to have the females whack the piñata and males try their hand at a [Democratic Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid punching bag.”
Right, because women hitting a woman and men hitting a man somehow makes it OK.Regardless of one’s political leanings, we can all agree that anyone hitting the likeness of a woman with a bat or punching the likeness of a man creates strong imagery of domestic violence. It’s not in good taste for any shindig, let alone one our nation’s elected officials might be attending.
