The chair of the Democratic party in Massachusetts has apologized for saying Republican senator Scott Brown was trying to be an "honorary girl" by folding towels in a recent campaign ad. The Boston Herald reports:

“In the excitement of getting the convention underway and getting the message out about how important it is to re-elect President Obama and elect Elizabeth Warren, I made a statement about Scott Brown that I regret. I apologize for that remark,” said Walsh in a statement.

Walsh was tweaking Brown at a Massachusetts delegation breakfast when he said Brown “spent a couple million dollars folding towels on TV to prove he’s an honorary girl.”

Here's the ad Walsh referred to, which features Brown's wife and shows the Massachusetts Republican folding laundry in his house:
