Is Chuck Plunkett An Idiot?

“OK, I admit I’m only half serious about this, but the question is worth asking.”

Plunkett half seriously suggests on the web pages of the Denver Post that Sarah Palin failed to endorse in Colorado’s Republican Senate primary because Ken Buck is a man.  What is his evidence that gender had anything to do with it?  Nada.  Zip.  Zilch.  Nothing.  Hence the snarky paraphrasing of the title of his post for this one. 

While a charge of sexism is less toxic than racism, and people are more tolerant of women discriminating against men than vice-versa, it is still a very bad thing.  Making such things up out of whole cloth indicates that the proponent of the theory should be taken less than half seriously.
