He called a female reporter "sweetie." Oh dear.
Whenever a female waitress calls me "sweetie," the first thought I always have is to complain to the manager, sue for harassment, and try to make a national issue of it.
Sometimes I think Justin is right about the Bizarro World America has become. 9/11 -- or something -- has indeed ripped a hole in the space-time continuum, and so now petulant preachers, flag pins and endearing, old-fashioned language are the main campaign issue. Not mass murder and crimes against the Constitution.
