Anchor punished for an IMPLIED insult towards female racing-car driver

You can be as vile as the English language allows in talking about Christians but you dare not even hint at criticism of a protected class -- such as women -- unless the protected one is also Christian, of course
"San Diego sportscaster Ross Shimabuku has been suspended for a week without pay for remarks made about Danica Patrick before her Sprint Cup Series debut in the Daytona 500.

After playing a clip in which Patrick talks about the adjectives she's been described with throughout her racing (and advertising) career, Shimabuku said, "I've got a few words. It's starts with a 'b' and it's not beautiful."

Shimabuku subsequently apologized for the remarks on Tuesday.

I think Danica Patrick is kinda hot. I agree with the Old Man - there's plenty of other options which are complementary.
