  •  I don't see any sexism there (0+ / 0-)

    I'm as quick on the trigger as anyone when I really see it, but I don't see it.  Merely pointing out that she's attractive as a positive attribute in a campaign is neither sexist nor factually wrong.  It's probably sorta kinda true......looking good on TV always helps anytime you're doing anything that includes going on TV.

    There's nothing beyond the word "attractive" that's even remotely worth mentioning.  I suppose the reference to her as a "lady," but that's not sexist at all.  If he said "girl" then that would be condescending and sexist, yes.  But "lady" is perfectly appropriate.
