In a post last week, I referred to board member Lynda Banwart as an "ice queen." While I do not think that gets down to the level and referring to someone as "cupcake," I can't imagine myself referring to a male board member as an "ice king."
I will try to watch for that type of unnecessary language and avoid it in the future, though it has been several days and I have yet to receive even one complaint about the reference.
Burlingame, on the other hand, is doubling down on why he was right to refer to Martucci as cupcake. In his latest post , Burlingame shows a 1950s mentality when it comes to women:
A JUDGE in a court of law called a young, struggling attorney that name it seems and it was so reported on TV. That woman rose above the term and has become a bombshell instead and not just a physical one. She is now a world class attorney.
If our local a current cupcake grows up intellectually maybe she will become a star as well. I hope she does as no one can stand 5 hour BOE meeting all the time. We’ll never get anything done!!
It is hard to believe that there are people in this town who consider Anson Burlingame to be a highly gifted writer. I try to avoid both of those people.
