I'm surprised there hasn't been more of a brouhaha over Sen. Arlen Specter's reaction to Bhutto's assassination. Here's some of what he said:
"Our foreign policy had relied on her presence as a stabilizing force," Specter said, emotionally describing her death as "a real, real, real shock."
"I knew her personally .... She was, as you know, glamorous, beautiful, smart," he said. "Her loss is a setback. But you have to face what is. And now, without her, we have to regroup."
Number 1: How anyone could say her death is a shock, indeed a real real real shock, is beyond me. Everyone knew she was a sitting duck. She herself expected it.
Number 2: Dude, stop describing women in terms of their looks and how appealing you find them. Unless you would use the same adjectives for a male leader. It's 2007, not 1957.
