The primary newspaper for failed vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine’s hometown of Richmond, Virginia, has come out swinging against Kaine’s allegedly “sexist” attacks against education secretary nominee Betsy DeVos.
In a stern editorial published Sunday, the Richmond Times-Dispatch slammed Kaine for questioning DeVos last week over statements her husband made at a conference a number of years ago.
“The church has been displaced by the public school as the center for activity, the center of what goes on in the community,” her husband reportedly once said.
“Thomas Jefferson didn’t view public education as contrary to or competitive with church or religion,” Kaine told DeVos at her hearing last Tuesday. “Do you?”
Here’s the problem: In a career that included serving as both a judge and the head of Virginia’s Department of Education, Kaine’s wife, Anne Holton, has never once been questioned about her husband’s views.
“Nor should she have been,” wrote the Times-Dispatch. “After all, a woman does not stop being an independent person when she gets married. She still does her own thinking, and need not subordinate her opinions to those of her husband. In fact, it seems rather sexist to imply otherwise.”
That was a fair argument, especially considering Kaine was the running mate of Hillary Clinton, a candidate who made her potential as the first female president such a big part of her campaign.
But the fact that the paper took the time to make an issue out of a relatively minor snafu speaks to how unlikable so many people find Kaine to be, including those in the town where Kaine served as mayor from 1998 to 2001.
Mind you, his unlikability extends beyond Virginia. After the vice presidential debate in October, for example, The Today Show analyst Nicolle Walace noted that Kaine’s behavior at the debate, during which he had repeatedly interrupted then-Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, was in itself “unlikable.”
For a reminder of what that looked like, play the video below:
What a schlub — an unlikable and possibly even “sexist” one. Thank goodness he is not America’s vice president.
If he keeps up his antics, by 2019 he may not even be a senator anymore.
