Donny Deutsch, noting that he was the sole man on an MSNBC panel to discuss Sarah Palin's sex appeal, decided to throw out his theory that "the reason we have a fascination with Sarah Palin, men and women, this is the first woman in power that has sexual appeal and people don't know what to do with it."
The reactions were fast and furious.
Host Tamron Hall responded first, calling it "ridiculous" and "insane."
Norah O'Donnell chimed in next, saying she thinks Deutsch is "absolutely right."
Radio host (and HuffPost blogger) Shannyn Moore demurred. But she did point out that lots of Palin supporters wear pins saying "Coldest State, Hottest Governor."
A lively discussion ensued.
