Newman response to Kinder sexist remark: I'm no soccer mom

Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder probably hit a home run with his target audience when he said the following:

"Assault weapons is a misused term used by suburban soccer moms who do not understand what is being discussed here." 
Rep. Stacey Newman, D-St. Louis, issued this response:

 "Mr. Kinder, I don't play soccer.  Moms throughout the country have had to learn about assault weapons in a way most of us, even you, cannot imagine."
It does seem a bit callous for the lieutenant governor to be making jokes about an issue that is far more serious than him proving that he knows more about the technicalities of weaponry.

Its amazing, everyone seems to hate this DumbA$$ except the voters.

How they would vote for nut cases like him and Todd Akin is beyond imagination.
