Quote of the Week

QUOTE OF THE WEEK….Indy racing star Danica Patrick got a telephone call from Formula 1 head honcho Bernie Ecclestone last week:

He congratulated the Indy Racing League rookie for her performance at the Indianapolis 500, but also reiterated remarks he had made during an interview at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where the U.S. Grand Prix was being held.

Among the comments Ecclestone made in the interview and to the Roscoe, Ill., native was that “Women should be all dressed in white like all other domestic appliances.”

I know that Ecclestone is one strange guy, but even for a weirdo misogynist this is just plain fruit loopy. Somebody needs to check Bernie’s meds.
