Obama Apologized To California's Kamala Harris For Calling Her The 'Best-Looking Attorney General

President Barack Obama called California Attorney General Kamala Harris from Air Force One Thursday to apologize for calling her the "best-looking attorney general in the country."

The remarks, made during a fundraiser in California yesterday, sparked a swift backlash among political commentators. New York magazine's Jonathan Chait called the remark "disgraceful," and Los Angeles Times columnist Robin Abcarian characterized it as "more wolfish than sexist."

Clearly, Obama's handlers recognized they had a problem on their hands, and Obama called Harris a few hours later to apologize, according to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

“You know, they are old friends and good friends and he did not want in any way to diminish the attorney general’s professional accomplishments and her capabilities," Carney told reporters at the White House press briefing today, according to The New York Times.

At what point does one have enough different ethnicities in one’s lineage to where she can no longer claim to be discriminated against because she is ethnic?

“Air brushing photos can work wonders with improvements! I doubt she can hold a candle to several dozen republican ladies, like Sarah Palin, Wisconsin Lt Gov Rebecca Kleefish, etc.”

Over on Powerline they showed pictures of the GOP’s AG’s Pam Bondi of FLorida and the AG of Nevada - I can’t remember her name. Both are very pretty women.

The responses were nearly unanimous. Pam Bondi si the best looking (female) AG.

Not that any of it matters one iota.

Why is it necessary to appologize for paying a lady a compliment?

she is a credit to her race, which is how she got her job, I imagine.

Well, either that or...
