Man, we’re so soaked in political correctness these days that we need to be blotted.
Hell, it’s no longer cool for a guy to drink a lot of beer. It used to be when a guy gave a pint of blood, they had to blow the head off it.
And now a guy, heaven forbid (even though it’s not one of the Ten Commandments), can’t compliment a lady for her looks.
President Obama paid a compliment yesterday that spawned a million tweets.
Even birds migrating north for spring don’t tweet that much.
You could say the whole world outside of North Korea was all a Twitter.
Yesterday Obama said California’s Kamala Harris was the “best-looking” attorney general in the country.
Immediately hordes of folks tore labrums reaching for their keyboards and smartphones to discuss whether the remark was sexist or benign.
While Harris brushed off the whole episode, Obama apologized today.
For the record, the president also praised Harris for more than just her looks.
During the fundraiser, Obama said she is “brilliant,” “dedicated” and “tough.”
Sometimes being PC is more frustrating than being a blind Peeping Tom.
