    First, look at any Newsweek cover.  Here is an Obama.  Is that flattering?  No, of course not.

    Second, I think that the people who think it's SEXIST are SEXIST.  The preoccupation with how someone looks is sexist and to dwell on it and worry about it is totally sexist.

    BFD.

        write anything into you want.  Oh, he looks degenerate.  Why is the lighting so funny?  Is he smoking?

        There's nothing wrong with it.
