For the National Organization for Women “endorsement” is a 5-letter word.

CA’s democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown received NOW’s endorsement literally within hours after the release of an audiotape in which he and his campaign advisers referred to Meg Whitman, his Republican opponent, as a “whore.”

Mind you, Whitman is a pro-abort.

CA NOW President Patty Bellasalma gave this ringing endorsement:

As Governor, Mayor, and Attorney General, Jerry Brown has promoted and defended women’s rights…. We have every confidence that he will do the same as CA’s next governor.

Recall FL Rep. Alan Grayson and his similar choice words for Linda Robertson, an advisor to FED Chairman Ben Bernanke:

In appreciation, FL NOW gives the “atta boy!” to the honorable Grayson:

He’s 100% on women’s issues,” Donna Slutiak, president of the FL chapter of the group, said of Grayson. “He’s never let us down yet.”

That endorsement should come in handy, since the Cook Political Report recently switched Grayson’s district from “Toss Up” to “Lean Republican”.

Reaction to NOW’s blatant hypocrisy has been swift and sharp.

From Carol Platt Liebau at Townhall:

There’s plenty of irony in all this. Given NOW’s obvious (and repeated) willingness to sell women out in the service of big government and abortion, who here is really what Meg Whitman was accused of being?

Lori Ziganto adds:

Jerry Brown isn’t alone. And it isn’t just coming from men.

Alleged feminists are some of the worst offenders, spewing sexist and outright misogynistic garbage at conservative women. Because, abortion. They have grossly tied up equality and “women’s rights” with a legal ability to kill your unborn children. Killing the unborn is a cause to them and women who dare to challenge them by pointing out the vile nature of such a thing must be gender traitors or dehumanized in any way possible.

Law professor Ann Althouse, however, sees it as much ado about nothing:

This fuss is phony. The only way it has any substance is if you think there’s something especially wrong with using the standard rough language against a woman. If you think that, you don’t believe in the full equality of the sexes. And it would mean that women don’t belong in politics or wielding great power in the public sphere.

If we can’t criticize women the same way we criticize men, then we shouldn’t trust them with power.
