Worst week in political analysis

Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post gives his “worst week in Washington” award to President Obama for his statement complimenting the looks of California’s Attorney General. Cillizza writes:

For those who insist that Obama meant the looks comment as praise and that any outrage over it is manufactured, we ask this: Would he have mentioned how “handsome” Delaware State Attorney General Beau Biden is if he had been speaking at an event in the First State? Hard to imagine.

Yes it is. But this doesn’t mean that outrage over the comment is warranted. It just means that Obama is a heterosexual male whose brain hasn’t completely been washed by the tide of slavish political correctness.
