Obama/Nixon Comparisons Not So Off-Base As Obama's Dwindling Praetorian Guard Would Have You Believe | Main | Evening Open Thread

Washington Post's Expose on Kathryn Ruemmler's Shoes: Sexist, or an Attempt to Humanize Her and Thus Aid Her?

"Sexist," some claim.

This is dumb. The fact is, Women Really Like Shoes.

All women? No. But a lot.

And among the number of women who Really Like Shoes is one Kathryn Ruemmler. It is no slur to say Ruemmler likes shoes, because she buys a lot of high-end shoes.

People who buy high-end, fashion-forward shoes want you to notice their shoes.

Duh.

Do you think "Diamond" David Lee Roth was upset by people noticing his Spandex and Boas?

No, he was not. He was sort of hoping you'd notice.

Would it be wrong to talk up Paul Ryan's interest in bow-hunting? No. Because that's genuinely one of his interests.

So sorry if it's too much of a shock for people to discover that men and women have different sorts of personal interests.

No, the problem here is, as usual, liberal bias. This is another liberal attempt at painting someone as Just Like You and thereby garner sympathy for her.

The question isn't "Did the Washington Post run other shoe-stories about other White House counsels?" That's a stupid question -- as far as we know, no other White House Counsels had multithousand dollar shoe collections.

The question is, "Did the Washington Post celebrate any Republican figures at the center of scandals for their humanizing hobbies and interests?"

During Watergate, did the Washington Post ever run a story headline:

John Mitchell's Passion: Model Rocketry

?

No they didn't. Because they weren't interested in showing The Other Side of John Mitchell. They only focused on one side, The Villain.
