It’s been not at all troubling to me to watch President Obama be pilloried for having the temerity to comment on California Attorney General Kamala Harris’ looks — mostly because of the different standards to which Democrats and Republicans are routinely held on such “women’s” topics by Democrats and the press.
Here’s a news flash for worshippers in the Cult of Obama: The President is just a normal man. Normal men notice women’s looks. And normal men reason — not inaccurately — that most women like to hear that they’re attractive. Only in elite lefty circles in this post-feminist era have there been attempts to codify an etiquette governing when it is politically correct to compliment a woman’s appearance.
