(Newser) – Former Montana governor Brian Schweitzer's comments likening Dianne Feinstein to "the woman who was standing under the streetlight with her dress pulled all the way up over her knees," may not be going over well in the Feinstein household. Asked about them yesterday, the California senator laughed, made a hand gesture implying that her fellow Democrat was crazy, and said, "You better keep him away from my husband," Politico reports.

Schweitzer took to Facebook yesterday to post a brief apology for the interview, in which he also called Eric Cantor effeminate. "I recently made a number of stupid and insensitive remarks," he wrote. I "sincerely apologize for my carelessness and disregard." But Aaron Blake at the Washington Post thinks the damage is done. "The governor, who has somewhat inexplicably turned into a hero of some on the political left, can probably say goodbye to that niche in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary," he writes.
