LaBaff's slight came at an event for her opponent....the Colonel....Mike Derrick, who issued an apology.
Borden Symbol "Elsie"
Come on....stop being so dainty. Ernie is an icon and can say what he wants and I suspect it was off the cuff and in jest. It was a take off on Elise and Elsie, and surely not calling anyone a cow.
Too much outrage these days.
I've compared Colonel Derrick to Colonel Custer of last stand fame. It doesn't mean I wish him physical harm. It's just I think he is going to lose.
Besides Elsie was an iconic commercial symbol for decades.
Time to lighten up....As in "I appreciate Mr. LaBaff's homage to the dairy industry so important to North Country families."
