Danica to Ecclestone: Say What?

Indy driver, Danica Patrick took a disturbing phone call from F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, recently, in which he dropped a sexist rant into an offer of congratulations. During the call, Ecclestone's salutations covered Patrick's performance in the Indy 500 last month, but took a sharp turn down Men are Pigs Street, when he reportedly mused that women should dress in white like other "domestic appliances." He was probably referring to the unadorned state before sponsorship decals were applied; he can't possibly be that much of a chump. (Oh yeah, F1 definitely has a future in the US.) [Thanks to Chris for the tip.]
