One has to wonder about how he chooses to interact with women in a PC world. From Maureen Dowd:

Hillary has clearly raised Obama’s consciousness about the importance of courting the ladies. Touring a manufacturing plant in Allentown, Pa., Tuesday, he was flirtatious, winking and grinning at the women working there, calling one “Sweetie,” telling another she was “beautiful,” and imitating his daughters’ dance moves by twirling around. Later, at a Scranton town hall, he went up to Denise Mercuri, a pharmacist from Dunmore wearing a Hillary button. “What do I need to do? Do you want me on my knees?” he charmed, before promising: “I’ll give you a kiss.”

I suppose he was trying to be charming, but it sounds immature, condescending and politically naive coming from the mouth of a presidential candidate. His behavior in Pennsylvania went beyond the “habit” of calling women “sweetie.” As a presidential candidate, he needs to come across as,well, presidential. (I know the standards have been lowered in the last 7 years by the current occupant of the White House, but we should demand more from those aspiring to be president.

I will not miss walking past airport concessions selling the Hillary Nutcracker, a device in which a pantsuit-clad Clinton doll opens her legs to reveal stainless-steel thighs that, well, bust nuts. I won’t miss television and newspaper stories that make light of the novelty item.

I won’t miss episodes like the one in which liberal radio personality Randi Rhodes called Clinton a “big [expletive] whore” and said the same about former vice presidential nominee Read the rest of this entry »

It’s undeniable. It’s disgusting. It’s shameful.
