Colonel Martha McSally on Rick Santorum: I’d Like to “Kick Him in the Jimmy” (Video)

Colonel Martha McSally, the first American woman to fly in combat since the 1991 lifting of the prohibition of women in combat, told FOX and Friends this morning that she’d like to kick Rick Santorum “in the Jimmy.” McSally said this after she was asked how she felt about Rick Santorum’s recent comments about women in combat.

McSally admitted that she liked his positions but that she’d like to “kick him in the Jimmy” after his recent controversial statements. McSally plans on meeting with Rick Santorum next week when he travels to Arizona.

The Blaze has the transcript:

Because her position as a female military member, Fox’s Steve Doocey played audio of Santorum talking about woman in combat and the “emotions” associated with that. (Click here to see what Santorum really meant by those remarks.) When asked for a reaction, McSally didn’t hold back.

“You know I agree with many of the things that Rick Santorum says, but when I heard this I really just wanted to go kick him in the jimmy.”

“Kick him in the jimmy?” Doocy asked.

“Yeah, he’s totally out of touch. I mean, completely out of touch. These are the types of arguments we heard 20-25 years ago as to why women couldn’t be fighter pilots.”

Doocy went on to ask if McSally would support Santorum if he became the GOP presidential nominee. She said she’d like to have a meeting with him to discuss some things.

“I don’t think I would mention the jimmy part to him,” Doocy said.

McSally’s response: dead silence and a smile.

“Yeah, I guess not,” Doocy said.

Here’s more on Martha McSally…
Southern Arizona is buzzing with the possible entrance of a new candidate in the special election to replace Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Martha McSally, the woman who, in 2002, challenged the Department of Defense rule requiring American servicewoman in Saudi Arabia to dress in a Muslim Abaya and headscarf when travelling off base, reportedly plans to formally announce her candidacy Thursday.

McSally, who retired from the Air Force as a colonel, was also the first woman in United States history to fly in combat, and the first woman to lead a squadron into combat, in the skies above Iraq and Afghanistan. McSally is a Distinguished Graduate of the Air Force Academy, earned her Master’s Degree, in Public Policy, from the JFK School of Government at Harvard, and in 1995 was one of only seven active duty Air Force officers selected for the prestigious Legislative Fellowship Program in Washington. She spent the last few years teaching military and foreign affairs to world leaders at the George C. Marshall Center in Germany.

She’s also champion triathlete and has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro

Democrats in the Southern Arizona district, are lining up behind former Giffords’ aide Ron Barber to replace the outgoing congresswoman. Barber is being described by local Democrats as a “placeholder” or “caretaker” until the end of Giffords’ term. But it’s hard not to wonder if the entrance of a dynamic, young Republican woman will change the nature of this race.

McSally is conservative, pro-life, pro-2nd amendment, and everything else that voters in a Republican-leaning district are yearning for. So have the Democrats in Arizona’s 8th congressional district made a mistake? Some people are starting to think so. Martha McSally isn’t Gabrielle Giffords. But her dynamic personality, her clear convictions and accomplished resume could be just what conservatives need if they want to win the race that one Washington insider called, “the next biggest thing to the Presidential” race this year.
