Anti-Hillary Protestors Who Inspired Chelsea’s Feminist Email Were Radio Pranksters

Remember last month when a couple bozos in New Hampshire stood up and yelled at Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, to iron their shirts (video link HERE)?

"Oh, the remnants of sexist, alive and well," said Clinton to applause.

The moment had an impact on Chelsea Clinton.

Forwarding the feminist Robin Morgan’s treatise "Goodbye to All That (#2)" on email, Chelsea wrote, "I don’t agree with all the points Robin Morgan makes but I do believe her thesis is important for us all to confront–I confess that I didn’t entirely get ‘it’ until not only guys stood up and shouted ‘iron my shirts’ but the media reacted with amusement, not outrage…"

Anyway, per HotAir, it turns out those "guys" were pranksters from a Boston radio show, the Toucher and Rich Show.

I’m not sure if that means the act was any less sexist, though perhaps it was sexism dressed up as faux-sexism?

Or just idiocy? Or hilarity? I guess it depends on your point of view.

In any case, it’s wasn’t serious. (Unless it was?)

What do you think?
