Any opinions on Ms. Hirona's disrepectful comment during Hawaii Senate Debate?

#1
In the Mazie Hirona and Linda Lingle debate in Hawaii last week, Ms. Hirona seemed to me to be disparaging of Ms. Lingle's involvement as the Co-Chair of the Jewish Americans for Mitt Romney. Linda Lingle responded forthrightly that she was proud of that appointment. Did anyone else interpret Ms. Hirona's comments as disrespectful?

Thanks Stefan for the welcome. In Hawaii Obama's home state, to trash a candidate you link them to Romney. In this case Ms. Lingle is in support of Jewish-American's for Romney.

FROM NPR:

Hirono's opponent for the Senate seat, former Gov. Linda Lingle, also uses some unusual vocabulary — especially when describing herself: "A haole, Republican, Jewish woman from the mainland!"

"Regardless of how people feel about Linda Lingle, she is going to be one of the votes that the Republicans need nationally to totally take control over the U.S. Senate and push their agenda," Hirono says.
