WARMINSTER, Pa. -- The leaders of the Republican and Democratic committees in Warminster are calling for the resignation of GOP Supervisor Fred Gold, who sent an e-mail with a photo of a topless woman promoting Jan. 15 as "Breast Appreciation Day."

The e-mail that accompanied the photo asked, "Beats ... Martin Luther King Day, doesn't it?"

Democratic chairman Joseph Bowes Jr. and Republican chairman Jim Messina described the e-mail as insulting to women and blacks.

"It embarrassed the party. It embarrassed me," Messina said.

Bowes called it "offensive on many levels."

Gold sent the e-mail from his personal account, and apologized if anyone who received or saw it was offended.

"I certainly don't think I did anything immoral or unethical," he said. "To resign because of this, I don't think so."

Of coures he doesn'tget it, b/c he doesn't get it. Nothing like offending both women and blacks at the same time. Hey, at least he's efficient!

Too bad he couldn't offend jews and immigrants in that email as well. That would be batting 1000.
