Sexism on the Left

In a recent interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer, President Obama greeted the journalist with a kiss on the cheek. Probably no big deal. In fact, it probably sent a tingle up Ms. Sawyer's leg but I can't help thinking that if President Bush had done it, he would have been crucified for being sexist (and maybe sued for sexual harassment :-)

In fact, wasn't President Bush condemned as sexist by the media when he (gasp!) put his hand on the back of German Chancellor Angela Merkel?

And then there was the incredibly condescending, if not outright sexist, remarks by Democratic Senator Arlen Spector to Michele Bachmanm--telling her to act like a lady! If a republican Senator had said such a thing to a Democratic congresswoman, the National Organization for Women and every Democrat in Congress would be demanding his resignation.

The real amazing thing is that those on the Left seem too dense to even see it!
