I don’t know what the world is coming to, but the P.C. crowd is really stretching in their latest yammering of outrage.

This time around it’s President Obama for some comments he made about the Attorney General of California!

You have to be careful to, first of all, say she is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough, and she is exactly what you’d want in anybody who is administering the law, and making sure that everybody is getting a fair shake. She also happens to be by far the best-looking attorney general in the country — Kamala Harris is here. (Applause.) It’s true. Come on. (Laughter.) And she is a great friend and has just been a great supporter for many, many years. [via The Los Angeles Times]
Now I don’t know about you bunky, but I can’t fault Barack for that statement ………….., after all, my mother told me that you could never get in trouble for telling the truth!

However, the P.C. crowd got all up in arms over the perceived transgression and some of the more vocal members of the feminist movement started yapping like a pack of rabid french poodles.

For those who don’t see the problem here, the degree to which women are judged by their appearance remains an important hurdle to gender equality in the workforce. Women have a hard time being judged purely on their merits. Discussing their appearance in the context of evaluating their job performance makes it worse. It’s not a compliment. And for a president who has become a cultural model for many of his supporters in so many other ways, the example he’s setting here is disgraceful. [New York]
Even the people who were giving Obama the benefit of the doubt, ended up catering to the feminists to a certain degree:

Obama’s comment is so mild and so tempered by praise for her intelligence that it might not even count — the audience laughed, didn’t they? — but now that the most famous man in the world has made an issue of how she looks, so will everyone else who stumbles across this story. She’ll be objectified by millions of people in the next day or two as they find out what he said and then Google her to render their own hot-or-not verdict.
Well rest assured that we here at “The Perspective Research Department” have already done so folks!

I  gotta tell ya, Obama wasn’t lyin’.


I do have a simple solution for the P.C. crowd.

Next time around we will let Obama pick an ugly broad!
