A little message to Chuck Todd

This morning's off-the-cuff comment about Robert Gibb's pastel pink tie not being allowed in your truck was inappropriate. I don't believe you meant it to be homophobic or gay-bashing. I understand that males in our society have been raised to be macho and pastel pink hasn't fit that bill for some time. But, you're on TV and maybe saying that truck=manly and pastel tie=sissy is not the message you want to send. I enjoy your work on MSNBC and I think the people that work for the network are mostly trustworthy and hard working. Also, Gibbs did have an appropriate joke in pointing out how casual jeans are. Come on, with a tie? Maybe with an oxford and a sweater next time. :)
